{Basic Grey's Page of the Month}

Hi all! Just wanted to stop by and show off the beautiful new Basic Grey classes we are offering at the store now. It is the same concept as the "Book of Me" from last year, but has been revamped and improved greatly!!!!! I totally fell in love with the whole idea after my first class last year, and now that I am teaching it this year.... I am falling in love all over again!!!! The designers for Basic Grey just keep outdoing themselves for all of us!!!!

So without further adieu....

March 23 & April 21
6:30 pm - 9:00pm

"Kioshi" Page of the Month

Aren't they awesome!?!?!? With each class you get 10 sheets of patterned paper, 2 different types of embellishments, sticker letters, color instructions with a large picture of the layout, and me! hehe :) Also, as an extra little bonus to those who attend class, I have come up with 2 additional single page layouts that we will complete before going home. So, that is a total of 3 layouts that you take home with you, 1 double and 2 singles! How awesome is that!!!!

You can find more info on our website under Events. There are only a total of 12 spots for each of these classes so please do not delay in signing up. I wouldn't want anyone to miss out of all the fun!!

For those who attend all 12 classes throughout the year, Basic Grey is offering a beautiful, FREE 12x12 D-ring album to hold all your hard work in. Doesn't get much better than that!

In other good news from the home front, Basic Grey contacted us today to let us know that our order of Green at Heart and Kioshi will arrive FRIDAY!!!!!! If you have pre-ordered anything with us or would like first dibs on all the new goodies , you can stop by the store anytime after 5pm!! But remember... Patience is a virtue when shopping product the same day it arrives. :) j/k

Have FUN shopping!!

{Sad News-Beloved Kokuyo is going away again}

I have received an email from Kokuyo Japan advising due to confidential reasons they will no longer be selling even the Japanese version of the adhesive to the US effective immediately. Of course I found out because we were restocking our order from less than 2 weeks ago. Effective immediately the Kokuyo we have in stock is all we will have. I am so sad. We were on top of the world when after almost 3 months we were hooked up again through Japan. I feel like we are in mourning. I know it is just adhesive. We already have a hookup with another adhesive once Kokuyo is gone. We have a shipment arriving next week of the new stuff. It is called Sticky Thumb, it has 24 feet of adhesive and is very permanent. They are curretnly working on mfg refills so for the time being it is not refillable. However, it is only $2.50 MSRP. It is so strong a little goes a very long way. We will update you when it comes in next week.
PS: we may have the new Basic Grey as early as Friday! WooHoo
