Great News! Spellbinder has arrived and more!

This has been a day full of Good News...(Great news, actually!)
First bit of Good news
Today I received the package I've been waiting for with much anticipation! The Spellbinders New Releases have arrived!! The Presto Punch and Presto Punch cutting dies aren't with this order, as they aren't expected until next month. I haven't ripped through the box yet, (aren't I good?!! I've controlled myself...It's been here all of 45 minutes, and I've left it alone.....) I wanted everyone to know their orders have arrived. Of course, as usual I did order a few more of each Spellbinder Nestabilities and Impressabilities, etc...for those Stampers and Scrappers who didn't get a chance to place their 'pre-order'. I took a quick look at the packing slip....It looks like a couple of things were 'back ordered', but not many. So, for those of you who have placed orders, I'll be putting them together tonight and tomorrow. I will contact you within a day or so.

Also, more great news came today...Tim Holtz /Ranger's Distress Ink pads have arrived at my distributor in USA....I'll be placing an order for them on Sunday, March 7 and will be taking orders until Sunday morning. To celebrate these great new Ranger Distress Ink colors, I'm having a special promotion that will last until I place the order on March 7. ....Purchase 11 and get the 12th free! They're $5.99 each(regular price) and can be seen in my online Catalog under Coming Soon. Remember, to find further info about any product in my online catalog, just double click on the image, it will open up a window with a detailed description of the product and ordering information....To place an order, you can email me (my email address is on the left side bar of my blog and is also in most of the new product descriptions in my online catalog.
Note: To take advantage of this pre-order special, you must take possession of the order when it arrives, .....As usual, NO deposit or pre-payment will be charged for your order when they are shipped to you.
Aren't the New Distress ink colors great! The last Distress Inks that were released were very rich, deep colors, these are somewhat more muted, and softer looking, and will coordinate wonderfully with the distress colors that are currently available! I can't wait to work with them. They're going to 'go together' so well with the colors I have..which is all of them of course, I love them all and couldn't pick only a few took them all! I must say, I do use all of the Distress ink colors...

As well as ordering the new Distress inks, I'll be ordering products from many other companies, including Ranger, Tsukineko and Clearsnap. My distributor carries over 2,000 products, if there is something you are looking for, and can't find at your local Stamp Store, just email me, I'll do my best to find the product for you....

More Good News!!
Tim Holtz Alterations Dies and Embossing folders will be arriving in April. I'm going to start taking pre-orders for them as soon as I get them all online (which I'm hoping will be tonight).
Tim and Sizzix collaborated and came up with some great new dies and folders! The dies are totally different than any I've seen by any other company before, (including Sizzix)...Tim's style shines through.....I'm in the process of putting them in my online catalog under CHA New Releases You can check them out, and email me your order to make sure you get yours when they arrive in April. The one shown above is Tattered Florals, which is one of my personal favorites......I want that one for sure....(of course, I'm saying that about a lot of them, giggle)
I'm sure looking forward to seeing his new die cutting machine...I saw Tim demonstrate it on a video taken at CHA, and it looked great!! Very strong and powerful! (and Electric!) Great for someone who does a lot of die cutting!......or anyone who's a Big Tim Holtz Fan....(and I think most of us are, lol)....I'm looking forward to hearing when his book is available from my distributor. So far, it's not listed, and I haven't heard anything as to when it will be available. I'm sure it is totally full of great techniques....he's one very talented man! If anyone is interested in getting their name in for his book, please let me know so I can get our order in right away.. as I'm positive that when it does arrive at the distributors, it will be sold out right away....that often happens with popular items....then we have to wait for a few months...sigh...
For more information or if you are interested in Tim Holtz's Book, just email me.

And MORE Good News!!
A beautiful project is coming to my blog!
A stamping friend emailed me a picture of a purse she made using Claudine Hellmuth's Sticky Backed Canvas. It is absolutely gorgeous!! I kept admiring it, then asked her if she'd would like to show it online, on my blog. She's graciously agreed to share it with my blog readers. We'll be posting some pictures (front and back of the purse) with instructions on how you can make this great purse for yourself!! At the present time, I'm out of Claudine Hellmuth's 'Sticky Backed Canvas', but will be placing an order for more on March 7. If you'd like me to order some for you, please email me.
The purse, and instructions will be posted within a couple of days....(Once I get everyone's Spellbinder's orders mailed out).

The weather has been so great, I've actually saw some of my spring flowers poking their noses above the ground today! One of them is actually 2" high! I'm afraid that they may freeze if the weather gets really cold again...I hope spring has arrived for good, (the area I live in is known for early springs)....I hope so, or my poor brave little flowers will have frozen noses...I'm not even sure exactly what they are, as a friend gave me a few kinds of spring flower bulbs in the fall, and the day I planted them, it was so darned cold out, I just shoved them in the ground....not recording on paper which flowers were planted where....not too smart...
I'm off to put Tim Holtz's Alterations Dies and embossing folders online, in Integrity Designs online catalog....In CHA's new Releases......
If you have any questions, or didn't get your order in for the Spellbinder Pre-order, just email me, as I did order a few extras.
Have a great day, and I hope spring is 'springing' in your area!!
