Check out this super-cute and fun Easter banner:
It’s another Dottie original. This one just makes me smile. It’s so fresh and spring-like.
Here’s a close-up of a couple of the tags to show all the detail. They are also decorated on the back so if you are in the classroom tomorrow for our Make ‘n Take you can see that side too.
As I promised, here is a special sale just for those who are checking out the blog. Mention you saw the banner on the blog and get 40% off all Easter products April 1-3rd: paper, stickers, stamps, yep, anything to do with Easter.
Have a blessed Easter everyone!

It’s official. We know how to have fun at Creating Lasting Memories. Our first Spring Fling on Saturday was 7 hours of non-stop card making excitement. We made seven birthday cards and now have a nice supply (and absolutely NO excuse for not sending a card full of wishes).
The teachers were all good sports and wore these fun chef hats & aprons we acquired at CHA. Check out Shari in this photo:
There was lots of good food to eat and plenty of chocolate. I don’t think they minded the hourly prize drawings either!
It was a great time for young and old alike. Here’s Dottie with her granddaughter Jenn who was visiting from California. What a treat to get to know her better.
I just want to say a special word of thanks to all 6 of my fabulous teachers: Shari Townley, Marti Arrell, Allene Fewell, Loye Rich, Chris Liles, and Bonnie Bremer. You guys are wonderful, creative and so supportive. I couldn’t have done it without you.
Watch for posts of their very creative cards. I’ll try to give you some instructions on how they were made, similar to what I did after World Card Making Day.
Have a great week and be sure to take some time for ART.

I thought it was time to share with you some of the awesome new stuff that has arrived in the store just this week.
Check out these Vintage Buttons by Bazzill:
Next, I got in an order from Technique Tuesday, one of my favorite companies. They have more wonderful chipboard for scrapbookers like this:
I love the way they include page layout ideas right in the package. For those of you who take Jacki’s class on Saturday morning, be watching for a great page kit she picked up to do in her class.
Technique Tuesday has also come up with these great card kits. each kit comes with all the supplies to make 5 cards. You get pre-cut papers, clear stamps, acrylic block, ink, well everything you need to make the 5 cards shown on the front plus some extras to make something of your own design. I will be teaching a class next month using one of these kits. This one is for sale now:
I am loving the new Smooch spritz sprays by Clear Snap. We practically sold out of the first set of colors. We got in the new set of colors plus more of the first set. Here is a picture of that new set (the “Wine” is a very nice color):
The last thing I’d like to share with you is a new set of Easter cling stamps from Our Daily Bread. If you are looking to make some cards for Resurrection Sunday, you will love these:
Tomorrow is Make ‘n Take Thursday. We’ll be making a card using an adorable bunny stamp by Inkadinkado (thanks Dottie for the card idea). For the demo, we will be exploring a watercolor technique using Gelly Roll metallic pens and Outline Stickers (another new product that came in this week). You will love this coloring option for your stamped or scraped projects.
Wishing you a day filled with ART.
