New Embossing Folders

We received 2 creative shipments yesterday.  One brought us more Tack N Peel.  For those of you who don't know what this product is, let me tell you it is amazing stuff.  It is applied to your acrylic block to create a repositional surface for any stamp you may have in unmounted rubber.  Donna discovered it works great with the JustRite stamps too.  We like the images that are available from JustRite but really, who needs another mounting system?  The other shipment brought us the newest embossing folders from Crafts-Too.  These are stunning!!!!  Some winter scenes, dog bones & paws, baubles and one folder the could replace the popular Cuttlebug embossed tree folder that was discontinued a couple of years ago. 

I did a bit of playing last night, just to see exactly how these would emboss. I find it so hard to be sure what these will look like just from the packages.   Both of these could make quick, easy one layer cards, that would mail for a regular postage.  Or you could dress them up with ribbon, sparkles and layered elements.   I can't wait to get started on my Christmas cards.

Just to be clear these are 2 separate folders.   I was playing around a bit with the bottom one and tried to place it lower on the cardstock.  Didn't really work for me but wow it is pretty.

Jen's Wedding

I mentioned in an early post that Tom & Rose-Marie's daughter Jen got married on Oct 1.  The day, although a little chilly turned out to be a gorgeous day after the horrible day Sept 30 was.  I, for one was really hoping the weather would change for Jen & Mike.  Thankfully it did and they were able to have a very pretty outdoor ceremony.  I am sure everyone has heard of brides that radiated joy.  Jen was one of them,  in fact both Mike and Jen looked so happy.  It was a joy to be part of such special day.

Scrapfest Oshawa

We are almost done the packing part of our trip to Durham College.  It is always challenging to find places to showcase the products we want to take with us but we do very much enjoy meeting all of you in one place.   If you want additional information about the show check out the Scrapfest website HERE.  One more thing, when you get to the cashier on the weekend,  claim your free gift by saying "I read the Frog's Whiskers Ink blog.  Liz sent me."  Or something to that effect, it is our way of thanking you. 

The store in Campbellford will be open while Tom and Rose-Marie are at ScrapFest.  The jolly workers will be preparing the store for the next phase of changes.  Wooo hooo.

Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving has arrived and the weatherman is predicting a glorious one.  If you can this weekend, spend a few minutes outdoors enjoying the change of seasons that make this country so amazing. 

The store will be open Sunday from 12- 4 but closed Monday.  Tuesday we will be hard at work getting packed up for Scrapfest Oshawa.
