This is a big week at Art 'n Soul. We're gearing up for the annual Christmas Party on Sunday, and we're hoping you've saved the date on your calendar so you'll be there to join in on the festivities. One special "elf" has been busy making her scrumptious Christmas cookies, too!

I'll be rolling out some of the Christmas papers and ribbons this week; there's just too much to save for the Christmas Party day. However, one of the items I will be saving for Party Day is the first batch of Christmas washi tapes!

Some non-holiday ribbon was put out yesterday . . .

This is interesting ribbon and I think you
could either weave through it and/or
use it as a stencil!

More ribbon is being ordered as well. Stay tuned!

From the Millsrepco blog, I loved this card by Emily Cates.

Remember these 8x10's from My Mind's Eye that are suitable for framing?

I found a simple black frame for an 8x10 photo and used one of these sheets. It now sits in the powder room as a Halloween decoration . . . sooo easy! There is still a set or two at Art 'n Soul if you need something quick! I think a simple white frame would be even more awesome! If there was a 'gallery' of all of them, that would be even more hauntingly awesome!

"The Stamp Squad has been busy crafting and making beautiful stamped art.  We just had to share a look at a few of their creations! (Click each image to view their blog post.)
Enjoy your Saturday and remember to make time to create!"

There's new corrugated 12x12 paper in white, black, red and mint from Fancy Pants, as well as 4 of their Christmas papers and embellishments coming to Art 'n Soul tomorrow. I'll have photos for you in the morning (aka later today). And a complete re-stock of Elizabeth Craft Designs' Shimmer Sheetz! AND the new Vertigo™ from Imagine Crafts, all 6 designs, will be at the store tomorrow as well.

That's all for now . . . I'll be back again tomorrow!
