I recently finished a design team assignment using the Little Yellow Bicycle Fresh Print Clothesline die cute mini album and pages. I decided to do a girly album for me, documenting my obsession with crafting. I love that these pages are already die cut the same shapes as the album, so you can just put them directly on the chipboard--no tracing and cutting. Here's a link to my other blog that shows all the pages. I noticed we still had both the album and the paper pad in stock when we
were moving things around the other night, so come get them for 30% off!
The Design Team has been super busy with all the new stuff that's been pouring in from CHA. Here are a few new samples you need to see. There will be a new batch of samples coming in over the next week, so come in and check them out!

Tammy Medema created the happiest Spring banner for the store. It's so pretty and cheery! I can't believe she cut all those 3-D flowers with her Slice. She also cut the letters with her Slice, and used paper from the Dear Lizzy line by American Crafts. Love the glitterd birdcage!

We're super excited about a new mini album die set we just got in the die cut center. The four parts include a plain page, a page with a cut out frame, a page with a pocket, and a tag to fit in the pocket. These are two beautiful examples of this album made by our Design Team. You have to come in and see the rest of these gorgeous books!

Laurie from our design team created this gorgeous mini album using the new LUSH line from My Mind's Eye. It uses the pretty mini book plus coordinating papers, chipboard alphabets, ribbon, rhinestones, and brads. Come in and see it up close--you'll be inspired!
I've been having way too much fun with all the pink, red, and white felt in the store right now. This sweet heart garland was cut using three different heart dies in our die cut center, then embellished and hand-stitched together.
I added a Making Memories sticker with it's own stitching to compliment the center heart and stuck a button on with Glue Dots. This was really easier than you'd imagine! Come in and check out all the fun ideas we have for this yummy wool-blend felt.
After not being in the store for a few days, I was amazed to come back and see so many great Valentine-themed mini books from the Design Team! Here is a little peak three gorgeous examples to inspire you to start your own book of love!
