Gift Cards with Donna on 12/3

Well, finally!  I just received the Art Impressions stamps in and had to quickly work up some projects for you.   While these are not the original stamps I was going to present, they caught my eye simply because they lend themselves so well to the upcoming holidays.  We WILL be doing an Art Impressions class (perhaps several) in the new year showcasing their coloring techniques, so stay tuned for that.

In the meantime, this is what we'll be doing on DECEMBER 3rd at WCC (Whitman Community Center) from 1pm to 3pm.  So sign up quickly because I think this class is going to be a blast!

Here's your first card showing it with and without a gift card enclosed:

And here's the second card we'll be doing.  You can start laughing now -- I think this lady is a hoot!

The gift card actually gets enclosed inside the box and when removed, this crazy lady is shown "popping" out of the box as well. 

The best part about these stamps is that they are not limited to holiday gift giving.  The first card I doctored up to look like the holiday season, but you'll get to see what it really looks like when you attend the class.  I do hope to have an Art Impressions catalog soon -- perhaps in time for the December 4th event, but we'll see.

So, quick, sign up right away and we'll have some laughs.

Did you know? ....We can order that for you!

You ladies are the best!  We truly appreciate the outpouring support we have received from you.  Without you, we wouldn't be continuing on this journey.  THANK YOU!  You have inspired us!

As you know, we have been very busy creating classes for you.  We also understand that some of you would like to have the same items we used in class.  And we want to offer that for you!

Both Donna and Kim have been busy establishing themselves as businesses.  Donna's business name is EZ Bowz and Kim's business name is KEP Creations.  We both have a resale tax id, pay Uncle Sam and have all the necessary paperwork to be considered a business.  Kim even has a mini store in her studio you can buy from while at classes!

We have been working with several companies that we know you love and we are going to be able to offer these to you.  We do want to let you know that since we are just starting out, most of the sales will be via catalog.  With these catalogs do come some minimums.  Some companies need to have a certain amount ordered before they will ship.  In many cases, we are comfortably able to obtain those orders with you but if we don't, we will let you know that it hasn't been ordered yet and we'll announce something on the blog to try to reach the necessary amount.  Also, if we have extra product left over, we'll post a picture here and you can let us know you want it!  This will be on a first come, first serve basis.  BUT!  Don't despair if you didn't get it, it can most likely be ordered in the next order!

We would like to offer a 15% discount on most product that you order and purchase from us. That's a 15% discount off most everything we sell. (There are a few exceptions, some manufacturers have rules about these things.)  We do ask that you prepay for your orders.  Until we are a little more established, we are going to need the money to order the goods.  Neither Donna nor Kim have any debt in their companies and we would LOVE to keep it that way! - It'll ensure we are around a very long time!!!  We aren't sticklers though and will make exceptions. :-)  We will accept cash, checks and PayPal.  If you are looking to order something, we can Paypal invoice you and you can pay that way.  Currently Kim accepts MasterCard, Visa, Discover and Amex, she can accept these payments anywhere!

As of right now, we have accounts with several companies.  As we are able to expand, we'll let you know here and in classes what those companies are.  Right now we can order from:
  • Notions Marketing (this company carries a TON of different companies like Ranger, Sizzix, EK Success, Kaisercraft, House Mouse, Hero Arts, La Blanche, Stampers Anonymous, Magenta, Copic and many, many more!)
  • Dreamweaver
  • Tattered Angels
  • Ten Seconds Studio
  • Art Impressions
  • Memory Box
We are currently working on bringing you Stampscapes and DeNami in the near future.  If there is a company we didn't mention and you'd like to see, let us know.  If we can, we will bring it to you.  Some companies do have restrictions.  But as we grow, we will outgrow many of those restrictions as well!

We will place most of our orders on Tuesday's, so be sure to contact us before Monday night to place any orders you would like! 

We cannot express our thanks enough to all of you!  We are truly blessed to have fantastic customers, students and most importantly FRIENDS like you!  We hope you will stick with us and watch us grow, the sky is the limit!

Latest Newsletter

The latest newsletter was email out last night.  Did you receive yours?

I've had someone tell me that the newsletter didn't look right to them yesterday.  If you had an issue with your newsletter (or you didn't recieve yours), please comment on the post so I can look into it.  I'm using a different system than Bev and I'm still ironing out all the kinks.  Any information you can provide will help me make it better.

Thank you!

Kim's Copic Class

Hello Ladies!

I know, I know.  I haven't posted here in a LONG time.  I'm telling you, it's harder than I thought to get a business up and running as well as create classes for in-person teachings AND online teachings!  As some of you know, I also take care of my infant nephew on Wednesday's and have my own two school aged boys.  It's been quite an adjustment getting it all done.  I am getting on track and finally have not only the samples for tomorrow night's class but the colors you'll be needing for class as well!  Here's the colors:  E00, E01, E02, E08, E09, E11, E13, E55, E57, Y06, Y28, C4, C6, C8, BV0000, BV11, BV31, G05, G09, G28, YR68, R22, R24, R27, R59 - I know there aren't a lot of reds in this bunch but the browns we will be using have a lot of red hues in them.

And here's are my samples:

Class is tomorrow night, Thursday, November 10th from 7-9PM at the Community Center in Whitman, MA.  That is above the Stop and Shop on Rte 18.  There are still a few spots open for class if you would like to join us!

Oh and don't worry if you don't have all the colors, bring what you have and we'll work with them!

Upcoming class...

Hi there!  I've been working my little fingers to the bones (too bad the rest of me didn't get the message) to create some great projects for you.  I've decided to place this class on Wednesday, November 30th  from 7 to 9 pm.

When we were catalog shopping at Bev's for Penny Black, this stamp "spoke" to me.  When I got it, I asked myself why?  Funny how we do things like that.  Well, once I put my mind into "that place", I realized what a truly beautiful stamp it is and how easy you can put cards together with it.  It may just be my favorite for my upcoming Christmas card list!  That's how quickly these do up!

Here's card number one which shows the stamp in it's entirety.

I used a different twist on resist stamping for this card.  So be sure to sign up for the class and learn how much fun it is to do.  And, not to point out the obvious, make sure you bring your E-Z BowZ with you!

Now the question was, how can I change this up a bit?  Here's one idea and we'll also be doing this in class.  Same technique, different colors.

Well, that's what's going on for November 30th.  So click on the PayPal button below and we'll get you signed up.  Don't forget, bring your E-Z BowZ and think about the drawing.  There will be one for every class.  And don't forget your Frequent Flyer card so that I can stamp it.
