Happy Fall, and Store Update

I woke up early this morning to do some scrapping. Thanks to Eric I have space to sit and create again. My scrap room was a mess, and I mean a BIG mess. I was so overwhelmed by all the piles on my desk and all the boxes and mess on the floor that I had not idea where to start. Fortunately Eric is a bit more structured, and he made a start to clean that room yesterday afternoon. He didn't throw anything away, but he organized everything for me, so I only had to put my stuff away in boxes or in one of the cabinets. I hope I can keep my scrap room the way it is now.

A few weeks ago I received a box with the latest Zva Creative designs. I was in the mood for a fall themed card this morning, and used the Little Trees Crystals. The tree crystals have a perfect size for a card, but of course they are also great on a layout.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper (Sawdust) | Patterned paper: October Afternoon (Weathervane) | Little trees crystal: Zva Creative (CRS03CB114) | Stickers: Prima Marketing (felt alphabet) | Tools: EK Success border punch Arch Scallop | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo)

I've added new items to my store this weekend. One of the new items are the Manila Tags that come in 4 different sizes.

The tags are of great quality and can be used as gift tags, but you can also use them on cards, layouts or any other scrapbook project. You'll find the Manila Tags here. I'll offer a 10% discount on all Manila Tags until October 31st, 2010. No need to fill in a special discount code. The discount will be deducted from your order total. Those who already ordered the tags earlier this weekend will receive a 10% refund. The 10% discount applies to the Manila Tags sets only.

I've also added a new set of felt embellishments. The set contains a teapot and teacup. You can embellish the felt die-cuts by adhering a button or little flower. For the sample gift tag below  I used the largest Manila Tag and the felt teapot.

Supplies: Manila Tag: my store | Patterned paper: October Afternoon (The Thrift Shop) | Felt teapot: my store | Button: Papertrey Ink (Aqua Mist) | Twine: May Arts | Tools: EK Success border punch Arch Scallop | Stamps: Papertrey Ink (sentiment from Tea for Two) | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo), Versafine (Vintage Sepia)

At this moment the felt teapot and teacup are available in ecru only. New colors will be added to my store soon. If you would like to have the set in another color just drop me an e-mail. I don't have a color chart, but you can use the colors of the Build-a-Flower sets as a reference.

The store content loads quite slowly for which I apologize. I've been investigating how to improve the store's performance.

Be sure to visit my blog tomorrow, because there'll be another Zva Creative Blog Hop.

Have a Happy Sunday!
