I got sent 4 out of the 9 to 'play' with, and play we did....I say we, as I had some great girls in that day and they got their mojo flowing and come up with some great samples to be displayed on the Personal Impressions stand at the CHSI trade show !!
They're not only FAB for card making but PERFECT for Pocket Scrapbooking and Mixed Media Projects.

So, it was cold, sunny, grey and bright today. A real mix, and it was that mix that inspired me to have a little PaperArtsy fun.
Working on a watercolour card, I mixed up a couple of gorgeous PaperArtsy colours and topped it off with a stencil and their fabulous Metallic Glaze..
So, what are you waiting for....go grab your paints

Apart from relaxing, chilling, shopping, eating, drinking and making,I've made a resolution this holiday season to do lots more videos and classes, some will be on-line classes with downloadable step by step PDF's, some will be tutorials on You Tube, so to make sure you don't miss any, make sure you subscribe to 'Marion Emberson' or Sugar and Spice Crafts on You Tube, it's also a good idea to make sure you're signed up to our newsletter on the website so you don't miss any news like the sale below !!!
To give you a little taste, here's my first video of 2015...

The shop opens back up on Tuesday 6th at 10am, so we can prepare it for THE SALE !!! Whoa....hang on a minute, did I just say SALE ? Why yes, I did :) :) 
It starts Wednesday 7th at 10am and goes through to Sunday 11th and you can save a whopping 25% off everything that's not already on special, or magazines, or classes, or special orders.
So pop on down and grab a bargain, stock up on all your essentials and load up on some of the best papers in the area, so we're told...thank you people. :) :) 
If you don't live local, then don't worry we're doing it on the website also, just put in the code 'HAPPY JANUARY' we'll do our best to keep it updated, but can't guarantee !!!
It'll be great to see you all back at Sugar and Spice and we look forward to serving you in 2015.
