So Exciting!

Not only do we continue to receive products we ordered in January at CHA, but we're getting mid-season releases from some of our favorite brands!

Just in today, we have three new collections from Lily Bee Designs - Destination, Pinwheel and Sweet Shoppe.  They're all adorable, and will be out on the shelf soon!

Next up is My Mind's Eye's mid-release...  There are two new much-anticipated collections - Find Your Wings & Fly and Kate and Co.  Mary's working on getting these into the computer now.

Plus, I have two sets of boxes waiting to be opened... One is from Bo Bunny (their mid-release) and American Crafts (not even sure what's in this one).  So exciting, right?!

New Solid Cardstock Line

Many of our customers were bummed to hear that our vendor who made the lightweight, inexpensive cardstock was no longer doing so.  We searched for something similar, and finally came across a replacement!  We are now carrying the smooth cardstock from American Crafts in 38 (I think) colors!  They're great, rich colors and are a medium-weight cardstock (a little thicker than the previous brand).  They'll retail for $0.39/sheet, and currently only come in 12x12 size.  The colors are out on the solid cardstock wall now.

Give it a try and let us know what you think!  We'll be selling the remaining Jennan paper that we have until it's gone...

New Dies!

Did you know that Brenda Walton is designing dies and embossing folders for Sizzix?  The products are just as beautiful as the packaging...  They're worth a look-see next time you're in - love 'em!

Fancy Pants - Monthly Challenge

Hello fellow crafters. Today I'm showcasing a fun little layout using Fancy Pants paper line. This paper is from the collection called Hopscotch. It is perfect for little girl pages or for bright spring pages.
If you're new to Scrappy Chic (Livonia) and/or have never participated in the monthly challenge I highly encourage you to do so. It is simple just make a project using the themed manufacturer. This month it just  happens to be Fancy Pants. If you haven't been to the store lately you really should. Lots of yummy fun new stuff.

Here is where you can find the details for the challenge. Hurry though; you only have until the 18th.
http://www.scrappychiclivonia.com/ Click on the monthly challenge tab.

I don't normally scrapbook orange but when I saw this adorable paper I knew instantly what I wanted to make. I bought my daughter an orange colored dress for Easter and this paper is perfect for it.

I started with a 12x12 sheet of  butternut for the base. I then used the jump rope for the pink/and stripes. I used a simple punch to make a little decorative edge across the top - it is the puddle paper out of the collection.

I cut the words Bunny hop and 2013 using my Cricut.

I typed up the journal information and printed it out on vellum.

The little eggs are an eyelet from Eyelet Outlet -- yes, Scrappy Chic carries brads/eyelets from them :)

Hope you enjoy and can't wait to see what you make using Fancy Pants!!!!

Have a great day, Terri
