New Format/direction for me


before i get down to business i wanted to let everyone know that Susana’s Custom Art and Cards (SCACD) will be opening back up tody at noon (pacific time) and Susana has brought in some great new products!! 

– New Karen Lockhart Release all about Hearts, Love and food :o)
– Prima Mini Roses 1/2 inch roses 24 to a pack that come in 3 color hues.
– American Craft glitter gel pens
– Basic Grey the new Origins and Sugar Rush
– Kasiercraft 6 x 6 DP that includes some foil, flocked and other speciality papers
– SJD Copic Bundle – gold set

as for my own store i have been working on clearing out products and will continue to have everything 40% off.  i have thought long and hard about this and i will be scaling back on what i will continue to carry.  the store takes an incredible amount of my time and energy and i would like to move on to other endeavors – like TEACHING and TUTORIALS.


i hope to begin teaching in the community centers in the loudoun county, VA area.  these classes will initially be geared towards folks new to papercrafting.  however, i hope to include some advnced classes for those of you who have come to my workshops in the past.  i really would like to hold them here at home but i just don’t have the room at the moment.


i always get such great response to my tutorials and i love doing them so i would like to get back to them.  in doing so i also want to focus on getting more use (or in some cases any use at all) from supplies we all just had to have and then never used or couldn’t figure out.  Or maybe you bought it for ONE thing and would like to know how to get more use out of it.  SO SEND ME YOUR IDEAS.  YOU tell ME what you need me to figure out for you!  you issue me a challenge!!  i see it all the time on the boards.  the most recent was microbeads so i think i may start there.  Martha Stewart just put out some GREAT microbead collections but  microbeds have been around for some time.  there will be no real dates or anything for this.  just know that if you find yourself thinking things like i really wish i knew wht to do with these alcohol inks since i have enough dies skittles to last a lifetime now……send it to me in a comment!

NEW CHA products:

i will get a very limited number of items in at a great bargain for YOU!  i already have the new distress ink pads and reinkers listed on the website and may do a few other ranger items – they have some good stuff coming and i JUST got the PR sheet yesterday. i will even do a one time buy on the TH sizzix dies so please email me if you are interested in this.

there will be:

5 movers n shapers
6 on the edge dies
9 bigz dies
3 sizzlits
8 texture fades embossing folders

in addition it looks like there might be some new perfect pearls coming out as well as something called enamel accents in black & white.

pretty exciting stuff!!  more details will follow as i get them though you may just have to wait for my live reports from CHA!!

so look for more info/tips on using microbeads and if you have anything you want me to work on for you let me know!

better blog siggy
