Did You Know...
I recently heard that Ranger has discontinued their melting pot :(  I have a few left in the store and I'm not sure if we'll be able to get more in.  If you've been thinking about this cool tool, now is the time to pick one up...

***But I was happy to hear they will continue to have the UTEE (ultra thick embossing enamel) available (I love this stuff!)
Lawn Fawn The new Lawn Fawn release has soooo many cute stamps and dies.  We also got in the full range of new papers and the woodgrain notecards.  Lawn Fawn sample cards are smaller than an A2 and the woodgrain notecards are the perfect size for all the cuteness.
