It is time for the Craft and Hobby Association (CHA) show  and the manufacturers are sharing sneak peeks of their new product.  So, I thought I would share some of these sneak peeks with you. Just a reminder:
I am sharing sneak peeks of what the
 manufacturers are offering, but this 
does not mean they are all going to be ordered for the store.  
The store is not big enough to hold EVERYTHING that
is offered, so Cat does her best to order what the majority
of her customers want.  
The items that Cat orders will be scheduled out and will
arrive over the next several months. 

If it's show time, you know it is also time for a sale to make room for all the goodies Cat is ordering and scheduling out to arrive over the next 6 months.  We are having a Sliding Scale Sale where the more you spend, the more you save.  Here is how it works: Spend $25 and get a 10% discount.  Spend $45 and get a 15% discount. Spend $55 and get a 20% discount. Spend $75 and get a 25% discount.  Spend $100 or more and get a 30% discount.  Sale dates: July 18-July 24. It's a great time to stock up for any retreats you are heading to this summer. The sale is store wide too!!!

Are you ready for some Tim Holtz goodies?  You know his products are usually budget busters!!!  While you are looking at/drooling over all his new products, keep in mind that you can pre-order.  If you want to pre-order anything email Cat at with your order. She will send me a list with guesstimated amounts & you will need to call the store with a credit card for half down or mail in a check for the half.  
If you love the things in Tim's Ideaology collections, he has a lot to offer this time.  These are just a small sample from his black and white collection.  I'm loving those word bands...and might need some of the tissue tape!  You can see the paper stash, chipboard letters, and burlap panels  HERE.
This is Tim's "Merriment" paper stash and Christmas book cover.  The paper is all done in black and white!  He has another Christmas collection along with embellishments that you can check out HERE.
I am always so anxious to see the new Alterations dies and embossing folders released by Tim each year.  He has some great things to offer this year.  Those bottles are full of possibilities!!!  
Don't you LOVE these embossing folders?!  That gate and stars are on my must-have list!  
Look at this fabulous alphabet and if you love banners, you will want this banner strip-die.  It would make short work of making a banner!  Go HERE too see some more from part 1 of his Sizzix release.  These do not ship until AUGUST.
This next group of dies from Tim Holtz do not ship until SEPTEMBER.  Here are some Christmas die from Tim Holtz.  The snowman is in pieces so you can put him together however you want to. 
These die are very versatile and could be used for many occasions.  I love that he made some die for the hunters and campers among us!  That lantern is fabulous and would work on other things besides camping....thinking I might need one of these.
WOW.....don't you LOVE that window!!!!!   And the is the same font as his first strip alphabet, but this time it is bigger and can be cut out on chipboard or whatever.  Sorry, I've got to wipe the drool off of my chin!  LOL!
Want a smaller version?  Here are the movers and shapers versions.  LOVE it!
Now Tim has designed storage for all of these wonderful products of his.  There is even more to see HERE

Go HERE to leave a comment telling us which collections you want Cat to order for your chance to win a prize.
