Travelling to Arizona...

Well, being 3 weeks post-op from my final foot surgery, and unable to drive (to work!!...of course, that's the only place I go!!)...I decided that going to the Creative Escape in Arizona was the next best thing I could do. So, of course, this trip had to include a visit to the Bazzill Basics Paper headquarters...see the photos above...
So, in honor of my trip and the wonderful people at Bazzill, this week's prize will be a pack of cool Bazzill stuff, as you can also see in the picture...

This cool stuff will be randomly awarded to one of you who sends an answer to my weekly question. You can enter your answer in the "comments" section at the end of this post. Here's the question...
Is there a stamp company or scrapbook company that we currently do not carry but that you would like to see us carry? ( I know, there isn't much more room in the store but I want to be sure I am not missing a crucial company!!)


  1. I am new to stamping, but can not believe there is any other company that you don't carry. I already have a very hard time deciding which stamps I HAVE to have and those I just want!!!

  2. I would love for you to carry Stampscape stamps, then you could teach us how to use copics to color them. Please, pretty please could you carry stampscapes???

  3. Hi, Kate!

    Thanks for asking! you have a big selection but there are a few that I would love to see... Here are a few lines that I have interest in and have purchased along the way....I don't know if any or all sell Wholesale or if anyone else would even be interested but here they are anyway:

    Holly Berry House - (would love a class on creating their victorian boxes and lanterns). Love their mandalas and layering.
    Quietfire Designs - wonderful caligraphy
    River City Rubberworks - humor
    American Art Stamps - All of their artists
    Impression Obsession - especially Leigh Hannan
    Onyx Xpressions - elegant designs - elegant Christmas
    Sugar Nellies - cute
    Stampavie - cute
    Buzzcraft Stamps (German company)- cute

    I know that this is a wishlist but any one would be a great addition for me!


  4. i can't remember if you cary this company or not (i don't thik so...) but would love to see Papertrey-ink (just LOVE their star prints stamp set). BUT, if you end up carrying anything else, you CAN'T get rid of anything!! you just need to push down some walls and get bigger!!!!

  5. Kate, Not sure if you carry clearlyrubberstamping from Canada. Love their baby bear line :)
    Didn't know you were headed to CE...
    I've been 2x...Loved it. You are going to have a ball!!! Can't wait to see more pics of CE!

  6. I don't know what else you could put in your store, but if you supply it, I am sure I will buy it!

  7. I would love to see high hopes, whipper snapper, and sugar nellies. Also more supplies to make masculine cards, gifts, and scrapbook pages.

  8. I can't think of a one! Over the years you've had them all. Sometimes I wish you'd carry more in a particular line, but then again, if I make a request for a particular stamp you'll order it for me.

    Well, if you are asking, I'd like more from Invoke Arts. You have had them, but I don't think I've seen any new ones lately. Thanks.

  9. Do you carry Hanna Stamps? They have some adorable stamps, but I rarely see them in stores (I've only seen a couple in one store). I have to order directly from the company.

    Thanks for considering!

  10. Thanks for the weekly contest...what fun. Lucky you got to go to CE '09!!! Loved the projects. Can't wait to come in and see yours.

  11. I have only been in your store once.. and am planning a trip there for September 12th.. I cant wait!!!
    A rubber stamp line I would like to recomend is: Invoke Arts rubber stamps. They are very artsy and versatile. thank you for having these weekly questions!


  12. You carry so many that I already love, but would like to see Craft Louge clear stamps. They have an adorable clear clingy sea turtle stamp set called Bubbles.

  13. I like Colorbok albums, but they are hard to find.
