It is a fabulous Friday and look at this FABULOUS glittery zebra strip paper.  I have a feeling this won't last long, so if you like it you need to run by the store and pick some up while it is still there.
Do you have some camping, motorcycle, or firefighter photos that need to be scrapbooked?  Look at this fabulous flame paper to use on those pages. 
Cat shared a peek at the fabulous new Teresa Collins line of paper.  It looks like Teresa Collins has made another beautiful line of paper for us.   I think some of this will find its way home with me....LOVE the colors of this line.  There is just something about Teresa Collins' them all!
Tomorrow's the day to make this gingerbread house album.  What a fabulous example of Cat's amazing creativity.  I know quite a few of you have signed up for this class, so there will be some Christmas photos that have a really cute home this holiday season.

Have a fabulous Friday and I hope you can stop by the store to pick up some of these FABULOUS products!

Today would be a great day to stock up since you could save 15%.

Another product that flew out of the store was the Graphic 45 "Place in Time" colleciton.  Cat reordered:

It's a marvelous Monday at Cat's and the countdown to Christmas begins. 
This Thursday night at 6:00 p.m., you can make one of these cute Teresa Collins Christmas Coundown albums to record your countdown to Christmas this year.  If you can't make it on Thursday, you can make the class up this Saturday.  On Saturday, December 1st, Cat is having a crop/class make-up day.  If there were some projects you would have liked to have made for some gifts,  but your schedule didn't permit you to attend the class, this Saturday is the time to get those projects made.  Just call the store and let Cat which class you would like to do so that she can make sure she has a kit ready for you.
You can make this cute window home decor item
or a fabulous library drawer recipe holder.
Or, if you want to just work on your Christmas cards or other projects, you can crop from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. for a $15 minimum purchase. 
There will also be a Christmas Bazaar out in the mall, so you can pick up some wonderful gift items there to finish up your Christmas shopping.  So, I hope you can spend this Saturday with us at the store cropping, relaxing, and getting that Christmas list taken care of. 
Have a Marvelous Monday!

I love the colors of fall.  When you head out to go somewhere, the colorful trees make the drive so beautiful.  Even though we may not have the amazing colors you find in other areas of the country, there is still beauty to be found.  While we were on the way to our Thanksgiving dinner with my husband's family, I was amazed at some of the colorfull trees along the way.  Cat took some beautiful pictures a few mornings ago of the colorful countryside on a foggy morning.
She used the Authentique Thankful collection, along with a burlap flower from Canvas Corp.  There are so many fabulous details on this layout.  Just another example of Cat's amazing creativity!
Valerie created this layout featuring photos of her adorable granddaughters, Remi and Kennedy.  She used a fun Fancy Pants collection and also used sketch #346 from Sketch Inspiration for the right side of the two page layout.  Love this layout!

Cat's and Valerie's creativity is always inspiring.  I hope you are inspired to create some wonderful layouts this week.

It's hard to believe that it's the week of Thanksgiving.  My how time flies when you are having fun.  Just a few of reminders:
The store closes at 3:00 p.m. on
Wednesday, November 21st.
The store will be closed all day on
Thanksgiving, November 22nd.
10:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.
on Friday, November 23rd.
Don't forget to include Cat's in your Black Friday shopping plans.
Watch the blog and Facebook for the Black Friday specials.

On  Saturday, November 24th at 2:00 p.m. you can make this adorable Teresa Collins countdown to Christmas album.  This would be perfect to use for a "December Daily" type album.  It's a great way to remember all of the fun and busy-ness that is part of the holiday season. 

There will be lots of time spent in the kitchen baking up family favorites this week as we get ready for and celebrate Thanksgiving.  This is from a recent class and is a great way to store your family recipes.  The library drawers are available for $20.00 and you can check out the example to make your own while you are at the store.  The Ruby Rock-It paper that we shared on the blog yesterday would work great while making one of these recipe drawers.   We also have a selection of kraft papers by Canvas Corp that you can also use if you would like to make one similar to this one.  There are so many possibilities...just browse around the store to see what catches your fancy or matches your kitchen decor.  You can put a jar of beans or some other decorative grain in the back of the drawer to hold the recipes in place until you get the drawer filled up with recipes.  It will hold a lot of recipes and will make a great gift for someone or for YOU!   I'm in the process of making one of these at home and am anxious to get it all finished up. 
Don't forget to include a visit to Cat's on Friday for some fabulous sales....more information will be coming later in the week.

It's the Caturday before Thanksgiving,
and all through the store....
there are beautiful Thanksgiving
products for all.
Bella Blvd's "Thankful" collection is full of cute images, wooden buttons, and some very cute turkey stamps.
BoBunny and Reminisce have autumn and Thanksgiving papers with very rich colors.
Authentique has this lovely collection featuring some wonderful designs on that fabulously thick, textured cardstock for which they are known.
If you want to make some really pretty Thanksgiving cards, Cat has the stamps and die, by Impression Obsession, that she used to make this fabulous card.   They would also work great on your Thanksgiving or autumn layouts.
This vintage cooking collection by Ruby Rock-it would look great for the photos of the Thanksgiving dinner-in-progress. 
So, make time to stop by the store today and pick up supplies for those Thanksgiving layouts.
