Last Call

It's last call for all holiday papers, embellishments, stamps, d├ęcor, candle- if it's holiday it's 40% off  and will be gone after Saturday.


Even if you can't stand the sight of one more Santa or Christmas tree the backs of most of these papers are a pattern which has nothing to do with Christmas so perfect paper for Valentines, Spring or your everyday creating.


Come get it before it is packed away!

Look What I Found

Last week we received a shipment of magazines from Somerset Studios. They are always a treat and great reading and inspiration for a chilly winter day. You never know what you will find in the magazines.
This pillow on the cover of Home is made from French General fabric. When Kaari was here last fall you told us how she created her fabric lines and then let use it to create our projects. Kaari will be back this year with more classes and more fabulous fabric.
 
 
 On the inside of Home was a lovely article on this sweet drop cloth created by another Paper Crown favorite, Colette Copeland. It was such a fun surprise to see this.
 
I love that we are inspired and able to create with those both near and far!

Worth the Wait


Some things are just worth the wait! So thrilled to get a shipment of Stephanie Ackerman's Coloring Planners and blank planners in the store this week. I know Stephanie was anxious to get these in your creative paint stained hands.

You will love these planners and they are a great place to keep track of  your life, faith or art.  Each binder has fun monthly dividers with Stephanie's artwork to color and lots of pages to keep record of your life.


 
This week we also got in a complete set of Stephanie's clear stickers and her January monthly companion kit full of lots of goodies to help inspire you to document your faith.


 
We are working on a Documented Faith/ Planner night and hope to have that date for you next week so stay tuned. Stephanie drew a lot of ladies from out of town last summer and if any of you would like us to ship products, we are happy to do so just give us a ring.  Stephanie's stitching projects should be here soon so watch the blog.
 
Finally Save This Date- June 17th & 18th Stephanie Ackerman will be teaching classes at Paper Crown. More information and details regarding sign up coming soon but in the meantime, block off this date you do not want to miss!
 
Have a great weekend and don't forget the love letter swap!

Love Letter Swap


Our Valentines swap will be an envelope which you can use to send your love letter to someone special. We thought this would be a fun swap and I know you all can take this....


and turn it into something like this....

 
You are free to pick up your envelope from the store or you can create your own. Please just stick to a "valentines" theme. Envelopes are due at Paper Crown on Sat., Feb 6th and you can pick up your swap envelope on Tues., Feb 9th.

A snowy cold weekend is the perfect time to work on your swap and who doesn't like getting " cool mail. " Those that participate will get a special thank you!

For those of you that follow us from out of town, this is the perfect swap to participate. We would love to have our Paper Crown girls from afar join us!

 
Be a Sweetheart and
 join us in our Love Letter Swap!
