 Good Afternoon!

We have a new line of fabric to show you today! 
Tim Holtz fabric! 
The line of fabric is called Eclectic Elements. 

 Here are three cards made by Nancy Salzman using the fabric.

For these cards she used: 

The clock fabric. 
 The beige words
 and the black & white butterfly.

Here is a small preview of the other fabrics that are also in that line. 

 If you love Tim Holtz products, you'll love his fabric. We also sell a 12x12 tablet with papers the coordinate with the fabric. 

Here is another new item! 

A new machine called the  eBosser. 
It is an automatic embosser & die cutter. 
We just got it in last week and it works wonderfully! 
It's does the same things as the Cuttlebug, only it's automatic! Also, the mouth of the machine is wider. It accepts 8.5x11 pieces of paper.
 The eBosser machines come with two 8.5x11 embossing folders. You can't see them very good on the photo but one of them has clocks on it which is what we used on one of the above clock cards.

You will be hearing more about this machine! 
Right now we are just playing around with it and getting used to it but we are finding out that it works wonderfully!

Hopefully that isn't too much info for one blog post! :)
Have a great week!
