Quarterly News

Spring 2019

Spring Has Sprung
Ahhhh…it is so refreshing to finally feel the warmth of the sun and see the trees and flowers starting to bloom. It's great weather for a walk….like a walk through the quaint village of Nashville, Indiana!

You will most certainly want to stop into Wishful Thinking, where you'll find the most unique and fun stamping and scrapbooking supplies. We've got lots of samples on our shelves to help inspire you, too!

National Scrapbook Day is Saturday, May 4! We'll be celebrating all day with scrapping addicts like you! Read on for more details. You'll also find out what's new and what kind of exciting classes we're offering this quarter!

New Stuff at Wishful Thinking...
We are stuffed to the gills with paper, stamps, stickers, brads, inks, metal dies, markers, adhesives and everything else you need for your scrapbooks, handmade cards and other paper crafting projects! And yet we still keep ordering more of the best, unusual, cute, beautiful, eccentric, useful "stuff" you'll want to add to your craft rooms. Here's just a smattering of what's awaiting you at Wishful Thinking:

  • Do you love Nuvo Drops? Summer Sunrise, Calming Aqua, Dirty Bronze and Metallic Soft Mint are just 4 of the yummy new colors!

  • You'll find all the stamps, papers, stickers and embellishments you'll need for those Easter, Mother's / Father's Day and Graduation projects! Check out all our samples for inspiration. Better yet, join us for a card making class!

  • Sizzix has more fun embossing folders metal dies and for us to play with! You'll have a blast making cards using the "fold-it" dies - how about a tasty-looking ice cream cone or an adorable strawberry! You'll also want all the new side-kick thinlit dies (lots of detail!)

  • Penny Black has once again released some stunning stamp images and metal dies! Fortunately, they included instructions! Join us for a class on June 13 or 22 as we create our own masterpieces with these beautiful images.

  • Ok, last quarter we mentioned we were getting "something called Alcohol Pearls" from Ranger. Well, we got 'em - and we love 'em! So, what are they? Alcohol Pearls are a permanent combination of pigment and die inks formulated to create pearlescent colorful effects. These superior inks are highly saturated, acid free and versatile. You can use them in conjunction with Alcohol Inks and Mixatives for an unlimited color palette. Add luminosity to your artwork on any non-porous surface, such as glossy paper, Yupo Paper, and acetate.

  • If you've been in the shop, you'll know that we are obsessed with paper! Next time you're here, check out some of our favorite new collections: Graphic 45 ("Bloom" & "Kaleidoscope"), Authentique ("Swaddle Boy," "Swaddle Girl" & "Ingredient") Simple Stories ("Vintage Traveler" & "Vintage Botanical"), and KaiserCraft ("Rosabella"), plus loads of travel, family and sports themed papers from Scrapbook Customs, Paper House and Reminisce. Do you need Nashville, IN, or Brown County papers - we've got them, too!
