Bo Bunny Press

Bo Bunny Press went out in the mail to me today! I am betting by about Monday I should have it here. The books are not coming for another two weeks unless they surprise me but papers and other fun scrapbook supplies from Bo Bunny will be here next week. They have some very cute new word books. Lots of great ideas to work with the word books which I will be blogging about here soon once they books come in. The new double dot line of cardstock colors is amazing! They came out with 19 new colors. The coral is one of my favorites but then all the blues, yellows and greens are to die for too. Hard to have a favorite when they have so many gorgeous ones. So I think I ordered almost all of them and what I didn't have come in this shipment will be in the next one.

These papers are so much fun and go with the new word books perfect. Takes all the guess work out. Be sure to keep an eye on the store.
Happy Thursday,

Spring time stamps and Dream Street Papers no in the store

I love these two cute spring time acrylic stamps. Grab some for yourself and for someones Easter basket. These stamps are $1.00 so they are great card stuffer as a little thank you or thinking of you gift in that homemade card.

Dream Street Paper collections are now in the store. These are the first 3 lines we are stocking. AMR will be carrying more of the Dream Street paper lines soon. I will also have matching Bazzill with the next Dream Street lines that come in.

Have a fun week! Orders are coming in from the companies I ordered from at CHA. I can hardly wait for it to get here and be able to list it in the store. Keep watching the store front.

American Crafts Albums, Custom Name books, & a great new blog

American Crafts Modern and Corduroy albums...
Design and create theme albums to coordinate with layout pages. Modern Albums feature heavyweight chipboard covers that offer a smooth surface for customizing with paper and embellishments. Fabric covers the 3" spine and wraps around inside and out for a clean quarter-bound look. The 3-ring binder mechanism has secure, interlocking D-rings. The cover on this multi-use album can be turned "inside out" allowing the album to stand up, making it great for calendars and recipes. Includes 10 page protectors. Many colors available to choose from.

Custom Name books are so much fun to make for a gift for that special person. I sell lots of last names for wedding gifts. Now a days who needs a toaster? Give them something that no one else will think of and will be cherished forever. How about a fun album for your child with their name? Who does not love to see their name? Going to Italy? Why not a book that says Italy? The possibilities are endless. I cut my chipboard albums in house. I use a thin chipboard so you can all all the extras to it you want without it becoming to bulky. My letters are 5 3/4 inch tall and bond with 3 metal rings. You can come up with any word up to 7 letters long. These ship within two weeks of order and many times sooner.

Do you often wonder WHERE can I find out about this technique to do this fun project for my scrapbooking? Ever need to just look at others work to get inspired? Want to see what the big designers are up to in the industry? Thinking about taking up stamping and card making? Do you sell handmade items? Want a place to get your name out to lots of other people? I have found the best site for this!!! I want to share with all of my readers so you can quickly pop on to this site and find exactly what you are looking for.

Websters Pages... My favorite pick from CHA

Maybe you have heard of Websters Pages? Maybe not? If you are a regular on my site you will be hearing a lot more about them. You will be seeing all of their products in my store soon. If I could only pick one line at CHA I would have to pick Websters Pages. Of course Basic Grey is a must have and so is many other lines but Websters Pages is one you wont find everywhere at this point. I believe some day they will be just as big as BG and others though. The quality of their papers is amazing. The colors and designs will win you over every time. You need to go out to their website to get a better look at their line of paper as the pictures on my blog do no justice. Their papers are simply beautiful. Their customer service was like working with a good friend. Another company with heart. Help AMR the company with heart, support other small companies with heart by ordering their products at AMR.

Websters Pages also has these amazing magnetic frames. I fell head over heals in love with these. I will have them on as a pre-order item in the store. They are gorgeous and such an amazing way to show off your work.

These are just a few of their papers and designs. I could have added them all on here as I love each one. Be watching the store as these should be in soon.

Have a wonderful weekend. If you have not registered on the message board why not do it today? We have the best group of ladies there with amazing talents. Everyone is very sweet and full of support and tips. We are having guest speakers coming soon at different times to help us with our layouts, mini albums, stamping and acrylic items. But to get in on these conversations you must be registered on the message board first.

Gel-a-tins, Dream Street Papers, and the Bind it all

So many fun new products coming in soon. We have lots of scrapbook products in stock now but over the next month or so will be adding lots of new lines! Keep checking back.

Who does not love Gel-a-tins stamps? Gel-a-tins are clear stamps that are soft and sticky like a gelly candy that come stored in a handy metal tin. You'll find a wide assortment of letter and image stamps as well as our build-your-own layering stamps where you can create your own unique designs. Totally Yummy! These are going to be in stock very soon along with others not pictured here. We are also going to be carrying their embossing powders and my favorite gelly gems. Gelly Gems catch the light and sparkle like stars in the clear night sky. There is 72 adhesive-backed gems in four colors and two sizes. Use gelly gems as accents to add some sparkle and shine to your layouts and cards! All Moments Remembered is excited to be stocking Gel-a-tins, they were yet one more of the venders at CHA with incredible customer service. I loved the gal who helped me place my order she is also on their design team and such a sweetie.

Will have the Extra Foam Vanilla Latte Scented Gelly Powder along with
Cuppa Joe Scented Gelly Powder to go with these cute coffee stamps. How cute would it be to make up a gift card holder stamped with these stamps and scented too to give a coffee gift card in? I am planning on making them for teacher gifts. Oh and my mail lady is in need of a THANK YOU I APPRECIATE you coffee card from me. She is wonderful and smiles every time she does a pick up for my store here at the house. Today I came home and she must have known I was getting low on the tubs so she left me extra. Her's will be the first one I make when I get the stamps in.

Dream Street Papers are on their way and in the mail now to All Moments Remembered. These are some fun lines. They have not updated their gallery with pictures of layouts with these lines yet. I have emailed them for pictures. The layouts sold me instanly on these lines. The customer service was wonderful at the CHA show and they have stuck to their promise of getting this out to me right away. So they are tops on my list for stocking lots of their products. I am excited to bring them to All Moments Remembered.

The Bind it all is my new favorite tool. Yes I have had one for a while now. Never used it! Was not sure how to use it. Used it at CHA and wow was it incredible. I did a make and take with Ty Collins hubby to Teresa Collins who designs those amazing papers and journal products coming soon. After trying this tool out and finding out what all it can do I was hooked. I think this is a must have for anyone who has not made the investment in one. With mini books and journals as hot as they are it is a must have!! Order yours today at All Moments Remembered.
Tomorrow is Friday! Yippppeeeeee one more day until sleep in day. Sleep in around here is 7:30 ish, but the fact of waking up because I want to and not because the alarm goes off I love it. SO happy Friday and I hope you call get to sleep in on Sat. too!!

My favorite stop at CHA.... Rubber Stamp Tapestry

Walking through CHA my first day with my mouth wide open and I am sure my eyes like saucers. Summer 2008 was my first CHA experience. AMAZING is all I can say. Well I can say more and here I go. My sense of direction has not always been the best. So you put me inside a building filled with booths that are filled with items I am so passionate about. Scrapbook supplies everywhere, like you died and went to scrapbookers heaven. My first day I went in with my notebook in hand and my map all marked out. LOL LOL LOL after about the first 20 minutes I put all of that inside my rolling tote bag and decided to just walk all the isles. Let me just say I forgot to eat lunch this day and never had a sip of water all day. You simply forget!! Well after hours of wandering and taking cataglogs and NOT placing any orders yet, going on advice from fellow business owners. I glanced over at yet another stamp booth. Almost walked past as I did not see many clear acrylic stamps. Plus I had not heard of this brand so I walked almost passed and could not keep going. I wish now I had a picture of this booth. Beautiful does not say enough about it. The cards and scrapbook layouts they had on display were some of the most beautiful I had ever seen. I had to know more about what was in this booth. There were the two owners husband and wife, Susan and Don. She was showing how she quickly can whip out the most gorgeous card in like minutes. I was captured then even more then I had been seconds before. Let me just say as wonderful as these stamps are the owners are even better! Susan and I hit it off right away. I knew this would be my first order placed and I might even spend my whole budget right here. Now remember I am a scrapbook supply store. Rubber stamps? Yes some are good but did I really need to fill my store with them? The more I visited with Susan and looked at her stamps the more I knew my scrapbook customers MUST HAVE these stamps. The papers you can make with them, ohhhh my. The cards of course you will make but the layouts she did for scrapbooking stole my heart. I bought lots of her pegs stamps and also her clear stamps. I tell you I could have sat in this booth all day just visiting with these two lovely people. I felt like I was home with them. This is a family run business and as you all know that melts me right there as mine is also run that way. I am so excited to introduce these stamps to all of you. I am looking forward to them getting here and me being able to offer them to you. Susan is also putting together inks for me to match her designs. Each kit comes with instructions to make exactly what you see and what colors to use. Of course you are not limited to the picture you can let your imagination soar. Be sure to keep checking in with me as these will be here soon. Help me support yet another family owned and operated business by supporting AMR and ordering your stamps here. Sorry if i have rambled on but I just gush with excitement over this stamps and doing business with Susan and Don. Take a look at some of the examples. I am going to ask her to send me pictures of layouts she has made with the stamps so all of you who just scrapbook can see these are still a must have. Plus I bet you end up making a card or two.

I hope your week is going wonderful and everyone is healthy. Let someone in your daily life know how much you appreciate them by offering a sweet compliment or even a hug. I know for me it makes my days that much fuller with happiness.

Clearscraps acrylic frames and albums... All Moments Remembered has them in the store now...

Right now in stock All Moments Remembered has this adorable house album. Wouldn't this make a wonderful housewarming gift? Realtor? How cute would this be for your client who just bought a home? Put their name on the front with the street address. CUTE!! Home for the holidays was the theme of our Christmas this year. I think this album would be perfect for my holiday photos.

How darling is this? Do you have a princess little girl in your life? Princess dog? What a fun album this would be to decorate. We also have lots of bling in the store to help make this album be extra special and made just for a princess. This crown album is in stocked right now.

I love this crayon album. I saw this in person at CHA. They put this childs art work inside on the pages. My little girl is always drawing the most wonderful pictures. I plan to scan them and size them down in photoshop. I want to do the whole album in her art work for her to show her little artist some day. This is not in stock but will be in the store very soon.

Love this album! Those scalloped edges get me every time. I am kind of in a scallop phase these days. Scalloped paper and now this acrylic album, I am in heaven. These will be in the store very soon. So be sure to check back often. Until then try one of the clearscraps acrylic items we have in the store now.

I have many clearscrap acrylic 12x12 frames in stock right now. Show off your layouts with easy in one of these frames. Add ribbon to hang it and you are set. At CHA they linked them hanging from each other with ribbon and it came out so cute.

Clear Scraps Acrylic Albums & Shapes are made from the most flexible and durable material available. to help you manipulate them to work for your project but yet, withhold the clarity of Acrylic you have come to know. With our material, you can emboss it, cut it, punch it, stamp it, paint it, etch it and so much more, but yet, not show any distress marks on the display. Our products even have a higher adhesion rate for incorporating inks and wet glues. Rub ons is also a great product to use on Acrylic as you can see the image from both sides!
