Martha's Tools

New tools from Martha Stewart!!
This trimmer is clever!! The cutting handle has a built in magnifying glass, the pull out ruler measures cuts up to 10", it comes with both a cutting and scoring blade and there is a little compartment on the underneath to store your extra blades!!
This circle cutter is amazing! The cutter comes with the turning plate, the blade handle and several replacement blades (which can all be stored inside of the handle!). Stop by the store for a demo!
The fringe scissors are clever and a huge time saver. With every snip of the blades you cut five perfectly spaced rows. Use these in your home office to shred personal information before throwing away, too!!

Have any of you already picked any of these up and given them a try? What do you think? Leave a comment and let us know!!

A new look for Spring!

We've changed the look of the blog a little bit. The sunshine is such a welcome sight that we wanted to lighten up the blog to celebrate! What do you think?

Inspiration Center

Has the wind blown all of your creativity right out of you? Scrappin' Time has a large selection of books and resources to help. I'm especially loving these right now:
Both the "mini albums" and "for the home" would be perfect to inspire a Spring project or two!

Tim Holtz

Are you ready for a parade of Tim Holtz' products?? Hold onto your hats... here we go! Tons of new Tim Holtz products new at Scrappin' Time!
In this photo: far left is a package full of vintage inspired buttons. Glue a few to the corner of a picture frame, add to cards and layouts or glue one to a ring for a trendy but inexpensive piece of costume jewelry. Top left: mini paper clips. See below for another photo and more info. Middle: chain and clasps in three colors. Use it to "hang" the embelishments pictured below or in combination with your bird cage die-cut to add even more depth. Right: film strip!!! This might be one of the coolest things I have ever seen. Come in and take a look, you're gonna fall in love!
Many of these embelishments have places to attach to a chain or ribbon. I have to admit that I bought one of each so that I can make some necklaces and bracelets! I also plan on using my Copic markers to color in a few accent pieces and make them truly "mine".

Paper pads! Is your style a little on the girly side? Tim's got ya covered! Do you like warm colors and funky patterns? Tim's covered that, too!

Here's a close up of the mini paper-clips. I should have taken a pic to show you size but they are roughly small enough to fit in the tip of your thumb. These make easy but impactful embelishments and can be linked together to make a custom chain.

Intimidated by Tim's products? I was, too! But in his book "A compendium of curiosities" there are dozens (hundreds?) of photos and instructions that walk you through the projects step by step. It is amazing what this man can do with ink!
Here's a peak inside. The bottom right shows how to use inks to alter the looks/color of the metal embelishments!!
Inspired? We thought ya might be! ;o)

Delightful Dimension

How many of you look at Prima products and softly whisper "wow"? You're not alone!! When we saw these flowers so did we!! The dimension in each flower is simply stunning and the colors are breathtaking. The ones in the center that look like pages from a book.... perfect for an end-of-the-year project for your children's librarian! Fill a glass bottle with deliscious chocolates and add a few of these flowers to the top (or tied around the neck of the bottle) and you would have an original, thoughtful gift for less than $10!

Prima Perfection

These flowers scream perfection. Perfect for layouts. Perfect for cards. Perfect to add to a headband or even a necklace!! You get 6 flowers per card so you can make lots of projects... perfect for Mother's Day!

New Stickers with a Vintage Feel

Have you seen these gorgeous stickers at Scrappin' Time? I love the vintage feel to them. You get two full sheets (one on the front side, one on the back) so a small $ really goes a long way!

GIFT IDEA: Buy a few sheets of the adhesive backed magnets, stick these on them and cut them out, arrange them in a little tin or decorative box and give them out for Mother's Day or end-of-the-year Teacher Appreciation gifts!
