There must be something in the water at SGT.  Have you noticed a couple of the Good Time Girls expanding waist lines??  Yupppp!!!  Our Lil’ SGT family is growing.  Krista Nash is having a Baby Girl and LIsa Shafor is having a Baby Boy.  Both of them are due in May!! 

Last night after the Class Kick Off we had a Baby Shower for the two of them. !t was soooo much fun!! We had some YUMMY food, DELICIOUS Cake but my absolute favorite part of the evening was the Gift Table.  Usually there is a ton of pink gifts or a ton of blue gifts.  Because we have one of each on the way there were a ton of pink AND blue gift bags and wrappings.  I have never seen so many cute outfits at one time.  These are going to be some WELL DRESSED BABIES!!!!  I can hardly wait for their arrival!!  We will keep you posted…

Everyone who knows me is well aware of the fact that I absolutely LOVE my Silhouette!!  So just when you think you have it all, technology keeps coming up with something new to entice me to buy once again.  And if you also know me, I have to have it all!!  Well, my favorite new find at CHA was the new Inspiration 12×12 cutter from Pazzles.   I coudn’t wait to get my hands on one, and it didn’t help when Gilbert won the only machine they were giving away at CHA!!  So NOT fair!!  He loves technology too, so he was too busy playing with it himself to share with me.  Thats OK, I wouldn’t have shared either!  After what seems like forever waiting for my new machine, I finally got to sit down and play with it today.   I should have been prepping for my next class (only 3 days away) but I couldn’t tear myself away.  I checked out the Pazzles website which has loads of great info on the cutter and I ran across a free download in honor of National Scrapbook Month.  Free!!!  I just had to push that download button.  Well, one thing lead to another, and before I new it the day was gone.  But I had so much fun!!  The layout literally took minutes to cut out.  I loved the squares cutout of the 12×12 paper.  I always feel like I get stuck trying to come up with new and different ideas and this was different for me.  My brain is now filled with possibilities.  I love the easy features on the software.  You can weld with the click of a button and it even has auto tracing!!  Can’t get any easier than that.  It was easy to figure out the basics and I’m looking forward to finding out all that this machine can do.  So, now that I LOVE my Inspiration you are probably wondering what’s going to happen to my Silhouette.  Well, it still sits right next to the Inspiration.  They are my BFF’s!!  They both have their own wonderful features so I just can’t part with either of them.  If someone was to ask me which one I like best, I don’t think I could choose one over the other.  My advice would be to look at the features each machine has and decide which will work best for your own personal use.  My advice would also be that if you do not own one of these cutters you ABSOLUTELY don’t know what you are missing.  They are totally AWESOME!!   I always hear that they are just too expensive, but in the long run they will save you hundreds of dollars by creating your own titles, letters, and embellishments.  And if you create it yourself, you have a “one of a kind!”  So, now I love my Silhouette and my Inspiration!!  WhooHoo!!!!  Stop by SGT and check out the layout in person (the picture doesn’t do it justice).  Julie

IT’S NOW THE “DAY AFTER” … AS ALWAYS, THE KICKOFF WAS AWESOME AND WITHOUT DISAPPOINTMENT!! MAY’S CLASSES ARE ON DISPLAY AND THERE ARE PICTURES OF MANY OF THE JUNE’S CLASSES ON THE SGT WEBSITE.  LOTS OF LAUGHTER, FUN,  FOODS, FRIENDS  AND EXCITEMENT FILLED THE STORE. IF I HAD TO VOTE, CINDY’S TABLE DISPLAY WAS THE BEST- WHAT A TALENT SHE HAS! COME IN SOON- CLASSES ARE FILLING UP QUICKLY. AFTER THE STORE CLOSED,  WE GOODTIME GIRLS GATHERED TO CELEBRATE THE UPCOMING BIRTHS OF LISA’S AND KRISTA’S NEW BABIES. IT WAS SUCH A SPECIAL NIGHT. IF YOU WERE HERE, YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN. IF NOT- JOIN US IN JUNE FOR THE NEXT ONE!!! ….JUDY POWERS

Oh help me!  Two new things that I just couldn’t live without…Paper Crafts new magazine “Gifts From the Heart” has a fabulous selection of cards, tags and treat wraps.  You know how much I love my books and magazines and this is a great addition to my collection!  My next new favorite thing is the Crate Paper line of paper.  I looked at the pink, greens and purple and they shouted out “chipboard books!” to me.  There is also a more manly line which is blues, browns and greens.  Oh…I almost forgot to tell you!  This beautiful paper also comes with co-ordinating die cuts and rub ons.    Come on in and check it out before it is all gone!     Dr. Heidi Ho
