I was in the store this afternoon. Every day lately it seems like new product is in. Today I found adorable cutouts of Golden Retriever puppies all in Santa hats that will be perfect for Christmas in July cards to go with the gray tiger kitties in Santa hats, Christmas wreaths, red mittens, and peppermint candy canes. These are all the images that are photographic and so cute to add to cards and tags. There are beautiful printed double-sided Christmas papers from Basic Grey in muted red and olives too. The July stamp is nearly sold out, so don't forget to call the store and have Lydia or Connie hold one for you.
Have you had a chance to shop the sales this month yet? People today were stocking up on gold and silver Stickles and Glue Dots...can't have too many of either. And all of the clear stamps were on today's sale. If you haven't worked with these yet, you will love them. It's hard to make mistakes with them because you can always see where your image is going! I LOVE them--and even though I said I would always be a woodblock stamper, I'm finding that I'm collecting more and more acrylic clear stamps and blocks. Lydia even has a round block and some great round stamps that are multiple images. Way cool!
Check out yesterday's blog posting for the sale items for this month and mark on your calendar the days of the week you want to remember to shop at Your Maine Stamper!
I took a whole bunch of photos at the shop today and will try tomorrow to get them up on this blog.
