~New For the Stampers~

We found a new stamp company while we were in Anaheim at CHA and after chatting with one of the designers (Cami Turnbow) and doing a make and take, we decided they would be great in our store. The company is called Our Craft Lounge.

An interesting tidbit... Marianne Walker who is the Product Specialist at Copic Markers has designed the stamps for this new company.

Take a look at some of the samples they had on display...

They also sell some beautiful glitters and some wonderful fluff.... as well as a new product called Sparkle Fluff.

We are looking forward to these new stamp sets arriving in our store!!

~Nancy Made a Boo Boo~

I totally spaced on the date for Lance from Rusty Pickle.... Lance will be at the Pantry to teach a daytime and an evening class on Tuesday, February 24th.

We are still working on getting the photos of the projects from Rusty Pickle and will post those as soon as we have them.

Registration for these two classes starts on Friday, January 30th.

We hope you will help us show Lance how excited we all are to have him at our store!


~Another Company We Picked Up~

We picked up several new companies to the Pantry, including a handful of Canadian companies. We also found a brand new Canadian paper company in the new exhibitors section of CHA on Tuesday and knew that we had to place an order.

The following are some layouts using the papers from Blackriver Designs out of the Maritimes. We didn't order their entire line, but we did order a few of them... we're sure you're going to love them!!

I'll be back tomorrow with one more company we picked up.... the next one is for the stampers!

And then come more fun photos of the girls!!

~Exciting News for the Pantry~

WOW, what a day we had. So much to see and do at CHA. You would not believe the number of beautiful products out there!!!! WOW! That being said, Crystal has told me that this years' show is a lot smaller than in previous years.

Anyway.... on to the exciting news!!!

Today at CHA we spent some time at the Rusty Pickle booth ... Lance from the Rusty Pickle will be in Alberta in February and he has agreed to teach two classes at the Scrapbook Pantry on Tuesday, February 24th!!! He will be doing two different kits .... one during the day and one in the evening.

Now, you need to hurry.... but not that fast LOL! Space is limited for these two classes but we will not be accepting registrations for them until Friday, January 30th. We need to get home and get them into the computer before we can have you registering.

Registration will be on a first come first served basis.

We are currently waiting for photos of the projects from the people at Rusty Pickle as well as information on the cost of these two classes.

We know that these will be such fun for all of our customers!

We really hope that you will help us welcome Lance to Calgary and support our efforts of bringing him to our store!

We'll be available to answer questions later this week
