Creative Cafe Coming Soon
Here's a photo of the "Art Bar" that we are installing so you can come in, sit at the bar, order up a quick project to do, and relax with us. (That's not the Art Bar stuff behind there...we are in the process of moving the Tim Holtz stuff into the other side of the store.)
The Creativer Cafe concept is the brainchild of four companies that are banding together in this project. Creative Imaginations, Bazzill Basics Paper, Hampton Arts and Accu-cut are presenting this new concept. Basically, we will arange all their products, related to this endeavor, behind the art bar and you can go back and choose your elements. There will be recipe cards available each week or you can do your own thing. Different projects will have different prices. There are two color combos, called "Lucky" and "Spirit and we will be carrying both of them.
Some of the elements in the embellishment area will be borders made from die-cut felt, assorted button colors, die-cut chipboard, cardstock stickers, glass brads, velvet brads, new designs of "swatch books" (which are very cool assortments of coordinated rub-ons,) velvet ribbons, double-sided papers, cards & envelopes, felt borders, felt alphabets, felt words and felt shapes, 12 x 12 sheets of colored chipboard, to use in your die-cut machines, colored tags, and so much more. These new releases will only be available at the stores who have ordered the Creative Cafe. Only two hundred stores in the US were allowed to do so, and we are one of them, carrying the entire line. So, we are all looking forward to the grand arrival, which should occur around October 30th. We will have a Grand Opening of the Art Bar, once we are all set up. Watch the weekly e mails for announcements.
