Stamper's Delight

We received our show order from Lawn Fawn this week, with all of its adorableness (is that a word?).  It's full of stamps, new dies and more.  We also have the Holiday release from Hero Arts, which is jam packed with seasonal stamps and new ink colors.  Hopefully you can check them out when you're in next!

Wait, there's more!

 After we got Ranger in, Cindy just finished putting the new Graphic 45 in the computer!  We also added Tim Holtz Idea-ology, Cosmo Cricket (Creative Girl, Chalkboard Cheer, mason jar lids, decorative hangers - you name it), Cropper Hopper and Tote-Ally Cool (new roller bags).  Phew!  That was a busy day!  Come check it all out this week - you won't believe how much new product there is in the store this week. :)

Ranger... Roger!

I just got done putting all of the new Ranger products in the computer!  We have the new Signature Archival Inks from Wendy Vecchi, Ink Spray Pad and Creative Journal from Dyan Reaveley, and new 6x6 stencils from Claudine Hellmuth.  There's also a new set of Perfect Pearls called Celebration - great bright colors to use all year!  Plus, I can't forget there are 6 new colors of Stickles glitter glue.

From Tim, we have new watercolor paper, open stock Distress Markers, and (drum roll, please)... the new Distress Glitters!  I have to say, I just put the rack together, and customers are coming over to shop them already.  Don't worry - if we run out, I'll order more right away.  Enjoy!

Working Through the Boxes...

I came up to see what else we had received this week.  We were able to get the Simple Stories collections out on the shelf, as well as some new lines from Bazzill - Arsenic & Lace (great Halloween line), Autumn Harvest and Nordic Pines (a great red, black & kraft holiday line).  They also have some new denim papers and metallic tags.

The new stamp sets and Tim Holtz stencils are in from Stamper's Anonymous!  These stencils are going to go quickly - there was already a wish list crew who couldn't wait to get them.

Plus, I thought I'd mention that Fiskars has some cool new hexagon squeeze punches.  They come in a couple different sizes, and we've been trying to keep them in stock - very cool!

Simple Stories Has Arrived!

So many of you have asked about the Say Cheese collection from Simple Stories (it's their Disney-inspired line).  We finally have it in the computer, but give us until at least later today to get it onto the shelves.  It came with two other collections - Smarty Pants (just in time for back to school) and December Documented.  All three lines are worthy of a good look.

We also just put the new Queen & Co. products in the computer.  There are tiny epoxy dots in an assortment of colors, as well as a full new line of washi tape!

Basic Grey and More!

Basic Grey has always been a staple here at Scrappy Chic, but I have to share something with you.  One of their newest lines, Persimmon, has the most amazing color palette!  It just arrived, and we're working on getting in into the computer.  But I can't stop staring at it!  Some of it will be coming home with me today. :)  We also have 25th and Pine, which is their latest holiday collection.

There are several new styles of albums from Project Life, as well as new colors from We R Memory Keepers.  They're all D-Ring, but we have new 8.5x11 and 12x12 styles.  We R also came out with a series of chevron washi tapes.

Glitz is gorgeous, and is here!  We have Dapper Dan (one of my faves), Finnley, Hello December, Raven and Wild & Free.  There are some great washi tapes that go with the collections, too.

We R Picture Punch

It flew under the radar!  I didn't realize until today that we have received the 3x4 rounded edge picture punch from We R Memory Keepers!  We've contacted everyone who was on our wish list for them, but we still have at least one in stock.  We'll be getting more, as well as other punches in this line soon.  Punch away!

  • Paper House - we have all new themes, both papers and stickers
  • Silhouette - We are now carrying a full line of Silhouette supplies, and can order most any others you don't see on the shelf!  You've got to see all of the adorable colors of machine covers there are.
Ok, I would say that's it for now, but I know there are already two deliveries ready for the girls to put in the computer.  One is a company that has two words, each starting with B.  Stay tuned!

Steampunk Spells Pocket Fold Mini

Michele here today, happy Monday...
OK, so you know by now that Chris and I were at Create-n-Connect (CHA)…lucky right!?!  While Chris was planning all of the amazing new product purchases and mingling with all the vendors, I got to take a couple of classes.  Today I am going to show you the Pocket Fold Mini album designed by Laura Denison for Graphic 45.


Here I am with Laura and a couple of the lovely G45 girls.


This fun mini album was designed using Steampunk Spells.  The collection is already on the shelves  at Scrappy Chic!!  This collection is beautiful, the colors are fantastic!!
This mini will be in the store so you can see for yourself how fun this design is.  I love the pocket pages!!

Pocket Fold Mini

There are so many elements but it was pretty easy to put together!

If you would be interested in learning this method of pocket fold pages let the girls at the store know and then keep your eyes on the Scrappy Chic calendar.
