Happy Wednesday Stampers!

FIRST - we have some amazing, amazing new products from the Lord Tim of Holtz himself!

When I was in the staff room yesterday, I *might* have peeked into the new shipment and *might* have flipped gently through a few things....  OK - who's kidding who - I dove straight into that box like a puppy at Christmas into tissue paper!  There were tags and jump rings galore!  Oh my!

And - I nearly (ok maybe I did just a little) peed my pants when I saw the glorious, unreachable DISCONTINUED Tim Holtz texture hammer!  Be still my beating heart!
This awesome tool has been discontinued and as someone I know says is "rarer than hen's teeth".  You use it to distress your brads and make them look vintage and worn.  Looks AMAZING on copper brads, especially Tim's brads.  GET ONE FAST!  (not online yet - but will be today - just request one)

Also - Tim's sanding grip is here!  Use this to distress cardstock, grungepaper, brads, fasteners, charms, etc.  AMAZING is to take one of Tim's charms - and sand it.  It makes parts of it shine!  SO COOL!  Cool tip:  before you take your die cut piece out of the surrounding paper - sand it - only the edges will get sanded!  Awesome!  Watch this video from Tim to see.

AND - we have the most gorgeous tags (sprockets, trimmings, philosophy tags, ) to add to your cards or layouts or tags - distressed or not - they are stunning!
don't forget your colour-matched rings
to hang them from and make ribbon tying a breeze!
You'll see it all here later today - or drop by the store!  WAIT till you see the papers - omg - the Kraft Resist is to die for!  It has a clear pattern already embossed onto it - just rub in a little ink - and TA DA!  You have a ready embossed paper.  Stunning.
