Switcharoo

It was time for a little switcharoo at the store. If it stays the same for too long, I get bored and I love featuring an item that has gotten "hidden." It was also time to make room for a whole slew of new stamps. Just so many cute new ones I could not resist. I'll have a separate stamp post but here is a teaser of some of the new vignettes at Paper Crown.



I bet someone is at the zoo today since the weather is cooler!


Stephanie's coloring sheet are a Paper Crown favorite. Printed on quality paper so they take watercolors, pens, paint well 


Perfect for those summer road trips


One Canoe 2 a new favorite!

How about a fun 4th of July pinwheel- so easy to make






 Don't forget to sign up for classes.
 
 I added quite a few this week and they are great.
 
 Perfect relaxing activity for a hot summer day.

Guest Artist Julie Haymaker Coming in July

One of my wishes for 2017 was to have a special guest artist come to Paper Crown each month. We have had an impressive collection of old friends such as Stephanie Ackerman and Terri Brush and new friends who feel like they have been here for years such as Colleen Moody and the adorable Jenn McGlon.


I'm excited to announce that Julie Haymaker will be at the store for three days in July teaching her whimsical style of jewelry making with her wonderful twist - shrink charms. In the past, we have used shrink on paper dolls and various projects but I think this might be our first time with jewelry!

This spring Julie came out with wonderfully handy wooden molds that make forming the shrink a breeze. We will be utilizing Julie's new molds in class and will have our first shipment at the store arriving soon.

If you haven't seen the class samples, they are on display at the store and the detailing is amazing. Unfortunately, sometimes photos just can't capture all the beauty of a project. You need to come see these beauties in person!

Join us for a fun weekend creating something I bet you have never done before. For those of you who follow the store from out of town, this is the perfect opportunity to experience a wonderful weekend of Paper Crown. Sign up for all three of Julie's classes and you will receive a 30% off shopping for the entire weekend. According to our dear friend Nan, this is one class you don't want to miss!

A Little Surprise

In the midst of last week's graduations, we had a little (or actually a BIG) surprise on Saturday. My baby is getting married!!! I (and Stephanie A and her sis, Jen ) have known since March when Stephanie was at Paper Crown to teach. When James wanted to stop by the store for a little chat over coffee we were suspicious and when he walked in with his Bible, it was a sure thing - and such a comforting gesture as a mom. Us girls talked about the wedding over dinner but then had to be
 "mums the word " until this weekend.













 
 
Congratulations you two!
love you!

Summer Fun with Julie Haymaker



I have a very special treat for ya'll in July and I know you won't want to miss. Julie Haymaker has agreed to come to Paper Crown to teach a trio of  fresh and unique classes. Julie has taken shrink to a whole new out of this world level!. In each of the three classes, we will be making necklaces partially composed of the most amazing shrink elements. Julie has a new line of forms, Shrinkets, that help you shape the shrink flowers and we will be using these in class. There will also be some beading and soldering in these classes. If you have never soldered, don't fret, Julie will expertly and patiently guide you through to a finished necklace. These necklaces are beautiful and you will not want to miss adding this to your skills. All supplies are included but feel free to bring your metal tools and soldering iron.
