Recycled Rubber Weekend begins in approximately 8-1/2 hours from now at Art 'n Soul. The best deals of the month!

Studio Calico's order arrived today and will be at the store later this morning. Studio Calico is the company that makes those wonderful wood veneer die-cuts . . .

Farm Animals . . . perfect for Graphic 45's
French Country paper collection!





And the 'Birds' that we've sold before are back in stock as well. We're still waiting for the 'Potty People' and the 'Alpha" (alphabet) die cuts.

The second Washi Tape class is a 'go' on Sunday, March 10 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. If you're scheduled on Saturday and would prefer to take the class on Sunday, please call the store to switch dates (360.357.6820). If you haven't signed up for the class, now is the time to do it because you're going to love it!

I posted a couple of cards made by Marj a couple of days ago and Marj wanted to give credit where credit is due!

by Marj Marion

From Marj . . .  "Marj is 'going on record' that it was Dianne who inspired me about the beauty and possibilities of the Memory Box die Wild Blooms, 98315.  Dianne's gorgeous paper pieced card really showed me that this is a great die with many possibilities.  It is also fun to keep a sample of the die cut to use as a stencil.  You can stencil through the die cut to put a matching flower on the envelope with your finished card on the inside.  Isn't it great to see all the inspiration we get from Art 'n Soul staff and customers too!  Share your beautiful artwork with us!"

Graphic 45 notified me that their Spring Garden collection has been shipped; we should see it by Thursday . . . just in time for the cards and other paper projects you're making for Easter. In our little paper world at Art 'n Soul, we're getting a little crowded with the paper, so pleeze . . . please do us a favor  . . .  please buy some paper to make room for the new collections!

I'm off to bed! I look forward to seeing some of you at Recycled Rubber in the morning. Special notes to:
  • Linda B . . . come and get your Studio Calico wood veneer cat die cuts.
  • Cheryl R . . . your 5 sets of bonsai tree cut-outs for your Iris Folding cards will be at the store later this morning.
  • Kerry McT . . . it's going to be nice seeing you at Art 'n Soul this morning!
