Graphic 45 Christmas Project

It's always a treat to go to the Graphic 45 blog and see the creativity that buzzes around them. This is a Christmas project that I really liked  .  .  . . We'll have to look into the G45 Kraftboard Altered Art Box.

This next beautiful craft, also by Nancy Wethington, is a beautiful Christmas Emporium altered art box. This is a perfect example of the holiday bliss that can be created with our beautiful new Christmas Emporium collection and 5x8 Kraftboard Altered Art Box! Check out these fantastic photos. Every detail of this box is so lovely. You can also see some spectacular uses for our wonderful Metal Staples. The essence of Christmas comes to life with this beautiful holiday treasure!

Napkin Trade & Play Day happened this afternoon at the store. Those of us who were there are the luckiest in the world today; we 'shared' these napkins to play with. (The next Napkin Trade & Play Day is Thursday, October 6, from 1:00 to 4:00.)

Speaking of "lucky," Marj made one of her beautiful bird houses out of Magenta paper and using her Spellbinder Grand Caliber and Grand Caliber Nesting Die (Labels Four) as an early birthday gift for Helene of Magenta.

Make sure this Saturday is circled on your calendar for Art 'n Soul's Recycled Rubber sale that starts at 10:00 a.m. We've accumulated so much RR that we're running out of space in the back room. Lots and lots of good deals will be waiting for our lucky customers.
