Hello and happy Friday!!! TGIF right? We hear you! We are in full spring issue planning mode, event planning mode AND have we mentioned there will be a CardMaps 5 this spring? We can’t wait to share a little more on that soon! We also release the second lesson in our SCT365 online class and the ladies are loving it! Yes, it’s been quite a week.

As we look forward at all that’s new, we also want to look back and give you the last recap from our CHA/Creativation trip! (psst…I also brought back something in my suitcase just for today so read until the end!)

Simple Stories:







(703 stickers!!!)






Webster’s Pages – new Composition Planners!




We R Memory Keepers (check out that sewing machine!)





There you have it friends! Three days of CHA from our view point. We went, we saw, we touched and we “ooohhh’ed” and “aaaahhh’ed.” We caught up with industry friends, we laughed and we ate…lol! I won’t even share those pictures of the bbq dinner of chicken and ribs, the best friend green tomato BLT I’ve ever had, a jalapeno fish taco that was amazing and of course there was The Cheesecake Factory which we don’t have in Canada! We enjoyed it all very much and above all, we made many pages of notes to bring you the very best in every issue this year!


Now to today’s giveaway! One of the collections I loved was the new Domestic Bliss collection Simple Stories. Seriously darling! As much as I don’t want to part with it, for you, I will! To be entered to win be sure to leave a comment below by Thursday, February 9th! One randomly selected winner will be announced next Friday. Good luck!

Now last week, we put together a fun mystery box and with every 100 comments, I kept adding to it so it’s quite the box of goodies. The lucky winner is…

The incredible displays are so wonderful in photos. I can’t imagine how much better they are in person. Posted by: Tami B | January 27, 2017 at 09:35 PM
