Just a Whole Lot of News!! (Including an upcoming EVENT!)

Ok, no card today stampers. Sorry about that. I had something come up last night that prevented me from crafting...but I'll be a busy bee tonight getting ready to bring you some projects over the next several days!

So, I thought I would give you a bit of a NEWS FLASH!! There are so many great things to let you know about, so thought I would combine them in one post!

SWEET 'N SASSY: Today is Digi Day over on our Sweet 'n Sassy group on SNR, and Korin will be your hostess!! Join her at the group for a challenge and great chatting! Don't forget to stop by the store and see all the digi stamps available for purchase! These stamps are such a bargain, and you are bound to see something (or probably lots of somethings!! lol) that you will want!

KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS: Did you all see the Spring Tea Party Stamp Kit Kimmie released last week?? It's available exclusively at her online store, and only for a limited time! They are going fast, so make sure to order yours now. That's not the only excitement! Today, the Krafty Girls are beginning the previews for the MARCH RELEASE!! Wow...so many new and fantastic images! Hop on over to our challenge blog to see who all has previews for you to drool over! I will be posting previews for Friday and Saturday. On Sunday, we are having yet another BLOG HOP!! This will also be the day that the new stamps are available for purchase. Stay tuned for more details on that!

THE TOWN SCRAPPER: Phebe's store in Petrolia is hopping! Did you hear her big news?? She has released an exclusive stamp line designed for the Town Scrapper by Victoria Case!! Not only that, but our DT (Formerly the Humble Pie Bakers) now has a new name! We are officially "The Scrapettes"!! I love this new name...look for an updated logo in my sidebar soon!

UPCOMING TOWN SCRAPPER EVENT(Including colouring demos by Phebe, Krista and me!...gulp!!): Phebe has also been hard at work on a fantastic fundraiser!! She is planning a cardmaking event on March 27, 2010 in Petrolia, Ontario! It will run from 12:00 to 4:00 pm. She has planned three separate demos with three of her brand new Victoria Case images! Phebe will be doing a watercolour demo...her colouring is just beautiful! She asked the very talented current guest Scrappette Krista to do a Copic session!! She has also asked me if I would be willing to do a Copic demonstration. Now let me tell you...I'm a bit nervous! I have never done anything like this before! I will emphasize that I am NOT Copic Certified, so this will not be a typical Copic class. I will just be demonstrating how I colour, and what works for me. If you are interested, please contact Phebe as she only has a few spots left! You will find her contact information on her blog here.

Now, I did prepare a list of the Copics I used when colouring the Victoria Case image (Phebe told me that Krista also prepared a list of colours she plans to use). If you are coming to the demonstration, you can contact Phebe or myself for this list. It is not mandatory that you have the exact colours. We can always work with what you have. This list will coordinate with the papers I will be using for the card. Please though...do not feel as though you need to go out and buy each and every colour!

However, if you are wanting to invest in some markers, I would suggest shopping at Skribbles and Scraps in Sarnia, Ontario!! This is a fantastic store!! Bob and Jennie are the owners. They are so very friendly, and I love stopping by their place! They are very knowledgable in all things Copic, and have a great selection of the markers, cases, refills...anything you need to get colouring! Jennie teaches Copic classes for various levels of experience. They also stock my favourite paper Neenah...just don't clean them out, because I need to stop by there and pick up more! lol You will also find Memento inkpads there...the best ink (in my opinion) for Copic compatibility! (Their store is also full of other fantastic product lines...plan to spend a while there!!) You will find their contact info on their store website here. If you stop in there or call, tell them I said hi!!

Well, that's all for now. Please come back tomorrow! Remember, I'll have a card showcasing one of the brand spankin' new images from Kraftin' Kimmie's March Release!

See you tomorrow!

Blessings,

Melanie
