Some many of us are thinking about our fall/halloween ATCs and craft projects. I created a "Halloween/Fall" category so you won't have to hunt around the site for all of the different products. I have everything from the *New Making Memories Spellbound products, to Halloween collage sheets, orange and black Halloween fiber collections, festive fall colored paints, etc., etc. I will be continually ordering to keep products in stock as well as adding new things to.
Please email me if you are looking for any particular Halloween/Fall items and I will put a special order in just for you.

15% OFF Stampers Anonymous' Tim Holtz & Teresa Collins ATC Stamps

I thought I would put these stamps on sale for you! Their stamps are cling mounted rubber stamps with the red rubber and grey foam padding already attached. They are ready to place on an acrylic block. You can also stamp by just holding onto the sides of the thick clear transparency card that the stamp comes on. I've tried this, and it does work. There are a total of 43 of their different stamps to choose from, so have fun.

ATC Folding Technique using goodie bag freebie

Hi Guys,
You know I am always give you a free clear bag of ATC goodies with every order that you place. It is usually enough collage type items to create at least 2 ATCs. So today I decided to see what I could come up with using my current "School Days" ATC giveaway pack. (papers to vary) The only other item that I used was the NEW 7 Gypsies ATC Naked Chipboard: File Folder. These are the exact size of an ATC, 2 1/2 in. x 3 1/2 in., but the tab makes the back side measure 3 5/8". I also forgot to use the metal anchor. This is what the outside of the file folder looks like:

Here I creased, bent and glued down the 2 outer edges of the matted school teacher. By folding these edges this way you are able to competely close the ATC file folder, and this technique will also keep your ATC file folder from falling over when openned. This is a great folding technique that can be used with any theme that you are working on. If you are interested in the 7 Gypies File Folders they are only $1.93. Here is the link to that product at the store:
I hope you all are enjoying your freebie kits. Fall and Halloween kits will be coming out within the next few weeks. Happy ATC Making!!!!!

Oh another thing....New products on the way!

Just a quick note to let you know that I will be receiving my order from Prima sometime this week. I will post some of the new products here once I have received that order. ie. Collage Flowers, Tim Holtz Transparencies, ATC stamps and more. I will also be adding new ephemera collage packets. I finally have put together packs of foreign language books, old newspapers, other aged books, antique playing cards, antique bingo cards and bingo pieces, ATC colored and texture paper sets, old and aged maps and pamphlets, tiny colored shells and antique music sheets.

You have to try these!!

I purchased these are the Craft and Hobby Show this summer and this adhesive is so wonderful, that I had to share with you. The glueRings are tiny double-sided adhesive diamonds that come on a roll, and you put it on your finger or thumb. Just slide a ring of glue onto your finger and roll it out. Then peel back the liner and press your embellishment, or paper etc. into place. It's so easy and an awesome tool!! I love it because it is so wide, and so much wider than my regular tape runner and it's half the price. It's the perfect tape to tape those hard to reach corners on your ATCs and those small die-cuts and embellishments. It is easily transferable, but also a permanent adhesive. There is also over 25 feet per roll, so this roll will last you a while. Do I sound excited, or what!?! If you purchase one of these and are not happy with it, you can send it back at my expense and receive a full refund. So what do you have to lose?
If you would like to order one of these, here is the link to that product. I also carry their vellum tape strips which are totally invisible when used with vellum.
