Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea.

Hope everyone had a fun St Paddy's Day weekend.
Always think of it as the first real sign of Spring.  Would be nice
for the snow to stop, but the sun has been out for a few days
and that feels so good!

Was in the store on Friday, and there is a lot of new stamps
and stuff for Spring.  Easter is everywhere with beautiful
stamps and dies.  If you love bunnies like I do, there are lots
of them to choose from!

This weeks card is a stamp that just caught my eye right away!

Stamp - Penny Black-Aviary (40-590)
Papers- White and dark brown card stock
Designer paper-Authentique-Jubilee Four Paper
Hello die - Spellbinders
Oval dies - Spellbinders Grand dies
Colored with Copis
Finished card is 5x7 inches

Seems like we have a lot of birds around already.
I think they may have come back a couple of weeks
too soon! I feed them year round, and on Friday,
there were Blue Jays, Cardinals, Finches, Morning Doves,
 Red Wing Black Birds, Squirrels (4)
and a bunny all feeding at the same time!
When I went to restock my seed supply, the woman
checking me out asked if I worked at a zoo!! HA!

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a great week.

Get your Bloom on!

We love Graphic 45 papers. They have come out with some truly unique and beautiful collections over the past 10 years. This spring they have come out with one of their best so far, Floral Shoppe. The colors and artwork in this collection has to be seen. I know my photos won't do it justice but I hope you get an idea of how truly gorgeous these papers are.

As you can see we have the full collection kit, the sticker sheet, the 8x8" pad and individual sheets of each page in the collection. I didn't take pictures of the B sides. They are all coordinating, mostly solid, stripe or subdued patterns to go with A side.

New to Graphic 45 is dies! These can go with almost any G45 collection. They have that vintage, Steam Punk look with the gear die and the clock die but I know they can be used in a variety of ways. We also have the stickers, chipboard and notecards that go with the Floral Shoppe collection.

When you're in the store I invite you to take a look, I dare you to go home without at least one piece of this collection, especially all my fellow paper junkies out there!

More photos! Alexandra Renke Washi Tape!

Spellbinders dies!

Concord and 9th stamps, dies and coordinating sets!

Altenew stamps and stencils!

Altenew Washi Tape!
Gotta go, more next week!

Daylight Savings Time Bonus Post!

I told you if there were some goodies in the boxes that arrived that I'd do another post. Well here you go!

A new company for us, Paper Roses. What a great selection of dies! 

Guys, Father's Day even the dog is represented!

These next four have so much potential!

Love the lattice inset in this one.

Great alphabet!

And who knew? Stamps too!
Check your emails. There is a sale going on this weekend that will make up for losing a hour on Sunday!

Snow! Seriously!

Welcome to the frozen tundra otherwise known as western New York! I accept that we live in a place that has the propensity for colder than normal winters and longer than normal winters but this is trying my patience! I start to get a little antsy come March and by the middle of March I want it over with! The good news...we don't live in the NYC metro area. Two Northeaster's in just over a week's time - Brutal!

So, to brighten our gloomy skies I've got photos of stuff! I've been out of the store for about two weeks and today was my first day back. I took a longer look around to see what was new, what had changed and what did I miss. Here's my report!

First UP St. Patrick's Day. Only a week away so get your Erin Go Bragh!

We've moved things around and made a nice niche for Mixed Media supplies, pencils, journals and more. Take a look.

We also have new Dylusions supplies and TH's Resist Spray up front.

The helpful hint about NOT spraying this on your craft sheet is courtesy of Alison. 

We have a few new Gina K stamps and dies on the front counter.

Altenew's NEW Die cutting machine. (Bunny is not for sale, he's ours!)

New Waffle Flower dies and stamps

These are kinda cool. They are puffy pieces of ephemera for your journals or scrapbook pages.

 Alexandra Renke because I just can't stay away!

Tim's and Cuttle Pro's Glass Media Mats

We know many of you love embossing folders and they've been growing unchecked on the front counter. Well, no more! Travel down a little to the left of the register and you will find embossing folders sorted by subject!

Because I missed these when they came in, here's Lawn Fawn's newest release right up front.
We also have new Penny Black in (photos to come soon) and My Favorite Things new release (not even out of the box yet!) Also, our Buffalo dies have come back in. Check out our new classes for March and April, most of the samples are on display in the store. That's all for now. If we get some of those boxes opened I'll try and do another weekend post. Until then or next week - see you in Spring!

BSS IDEA - Gift Card Folders

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea.

I bought this gift card folder die after the Super Bowl Party at the store.
I thought it would really come in handy as these days we give quite a few gift
cards for birthdays and holidays since our Gandkids are getting older and
harder to buy for.

From top to bottom left to right
Blue Card stock, Bo Bunny Penelope, Gold elastic cord
Yellow Polkadot card stock, Black Glitter Paper cut out, yellow cord.
Aqua Cardstock, Simple Stories flowered paper, small flowers
Red Mirror Cardstock, Silver metallic cut out
Orange and red stickles on flame of the I in birthday and Wishes

These make up quickly and come in handy.

Hope you weathered the storm last week.  

Thanks for stopping by today.
  Have a great week.
