Who is it going to be?

Tomorrow a new company goes on sale. Who is it going to be? I haven't quite decided yet. Awful of me isn't it. I just can't make up my mind. I can tell you it won't be one of the newer companies that I've added.

Also, I am working hard on getting LOADS of new product up on the website. Restock on the Copics and a few colors I haven't carried before. Tim Holtz products, more BoBunny and Kaiserkraft. Keep checking in, I'm typing as fast as I can. (Which is not very fast.) lol

I've been having some fun in my playroom/office today. So here are 2 samples I put together.
In this first one I have used the Paisley Egg stamp from Stampendous, colored with Copics and then to frame it,  I used the "Ornate Square Frame" in chipboard from Make It Crafty.
Speaking of Make It Crafty - they have new rubberstamps being released. I was just told they should start shipping next week!! On the front of the Copic Coloring Guide #2 book is one of the stamps that's on it's way! SOO exciting.
Where was I? Oh Easter egg card. Here you go.

In the next card I used the Clockworks House from Make It Crafty. (Yap, seems to be their day today.) This too, was colored with Copics. And I had some fun with a little paperfolding there on the right side. I know, fancy stuff! LOL

You may see some changes to The Stamproom store website soon. Just thought I'd warn you. Planning on changing the whole look actually. I tried today, but ran into a little snag. So maybe tomorrow.
Ok, back to making samples! :)

Filling the Shelves!!

I am hard at work filling the shelves with new merchandise, since the clearance stamps pretty much FLEW out of here. So go check it out!! On the left side of the store  click JUST IN and you'll see it all! I'm also in the process of ordering more. You can never have enough, right?
New for us are the coordinating sets: paper, stamps and accessories. I love them all, can't pick one to play with to make samples!
We're also adding ribbon and "bling", and trying out a new adhesive, by Helmar. 450 Quick Dry Adhesive. Comes highly recommended by Katherine in Canada. One more thing - you have to check out the black lace. Too cool.

And fun it was!

We ended up being a small group doing this canvas project, and maybe because of that we had fun, were a little silly and ate some yummy food. Most of us went the store bought way, but Rhonda cooked. And baked. And I want the recipes, Rhonda.
OK, I have new stuff to put up on the website. Check it later on, and you'll see!

Fun Project!

Well, this is not exactly what I had in mind, but very, very close. This sample should have been finished a while ago. But my sale on the website went "viral". I was not expecting that! And have barely been able to keep up! Not complaining though, moving some old merchandise out, and, an unexpected bonus, working out all kinds of kinks on the website. Most of which I didn't even know I had!. So, thank you all for your patience and understanding.
Anyways, here's the sample of this upcoming Sunday's class.

Happy Birthday Mamma!

On Thursday, the 8th, is my Mom's 82nd birthday. She has slowed down a little, I think the daily walk is more like 45 minutes than an hour now. Shame on you, Mamma!
I'm posting her card here, and on Facebook, because it won't get to her in time. I'm hoping one of my brothers will tell/show her the card.
See, I live in Florida, and my Mom in Sweden. So even if I mail it tomorrow, the 5th, it probably won't make it on time.
So, Mamma, hope you like your card.  :)

I love the stamps, I love the glitter, I love the technique....

Ok, so I had fun with this! We had a great little workshop this afternoon, where we made the red dressform card. The Dressform stamp is from Loralie Designs, I just got them in this week. Love them!! Used Glitter Ritz and Copics. Love that effect!!
Everybody did a good job and put their own touch on it. I love that too. That's what it's all about, being creative.
Oh, and that you love the hatpin? Stole that idea from my friend Jodie Heuser, when I took one of her classes the other day.

Check it out!!

Really, you have to. Go to "Just In" and look at all the new stuff!
Unfortunately I have to clean house tomorrow, or I would be covered in ink and glitter. Hmmm, if I get up really early and get the cleaning done..... Sounds like a plan to me!! :)
