We are actively preparing for the Shop Hop which begins in two weeks. It's hard to believe it's finally here after so many months of planning. Fiskars is supporting the event and will be traveling to several of the stores doing make-n-take samples as well as giveaways and lots of tool demos. We are anticipating many new customers through the event, as well as seeing some of you that we don't get to see on a regular basis. We only have a few key chains and passports left to sell, so if you are interested, don't delay in stopping in to get yours today.
I have been playing with the new product that has been arriving. The above layout was made with the new Eskimo Kisses paper from Basic Grey. I'm glad I didn't follow my first instinct when I saw the paper and not get it in. At first I thought it was too kid oriented and cute for the customer base we have here, but I have found that the papers compliment each other wonderfully and there are several really pretty prints outside the couple of whimsical papers. I have also made several cards with the line and have fallen in love with the way Basic Grey has done it again with one of their releases.
Be sure to stop in and see all the new product arriving. This week we also got in some great paper with turtles and frogs from Boxer. We are anticipating receiving another Basic Grey line in the next couple weeks which was also a release at the national trade show. We are also still waiting on new product from Little Yellow Bicycle and Bazzill.
Enjoy your weekend and be sure to stop in and see us soon, and all the samples we've been making.
