Summer 2017

The Lazy Days of Summer!
It's time to welcome summer to the village of Nashville, Indiana! It's so pretty to see all the beautiful flowers greeting you at the doors and in the windows of the shops, restaurants and hotels. And, there are so many activities and festivals going on in Brown County as well! Check out the visitor center's website at to see their calendar of events.

There's lots going on right here at Wishful Thinking, too! Our annual Used Stamp and Craft Sale is July 14-23. Have you been to one of our Wednesday afternoon Create-A-Card classes yet? Or our Monthly Card class on the 2nd Tuesday of the month? How about one of our Inky Fingers open houses on the 3rd Thursday of most months?

We're also excited to have a guest artist visiting us this quarter! Deborah Nolan will be here September 9 to guide you through the making of an amazing handcrafted album using Graphic 45's collection called "Portrait of a Lady."

Read on so you don't miss out on all our upcoming fun classes and events!

New Stuff at Wishful Thinking...
My goodness, can we fit all the new, awesome products on the market in our little shop? We certainly can…well, ok, we're trying! Here's some of the fun stuff you'll find:

  • One of our biggest passions at Wishful Thinking is rubber art stamps, whether they are wood mounted, cling, or clear. As you browse our shop, you'll find images from Penny Black, Magenta, Impression Obsession, Stamper's Anonymous, Hero Arts, Stamping Bella, Darkroom Door, Unity, Northwoods, Inkadinkado, Dina Wakley, Deep Red, Whipper Snapper Designs, IndigoBlu, Riley & Company, Verses, Ken Oliver, Stampendous and much more! Whew!

  • Summer time means vacation! And vacations are perfect to scrapbook. Paper House has several travel paper collections that'll make your pages and memories come to life. Some of the themes are: Discover USA, Philadelphia, Washington DC, New York City, Southwest Adventure, At the Beach and more. If you traveled abroad, you may need the France, England, Italy or Paradise Found Cruise collection!

  • KaiserCraft has been introducing some beautiful new paper collections! You'll fall in love with all of them: Watercolor (soft florals in pinks/reds/greens), Indigo Skies (lovely blues), Sage & Grace (dusty pinks and mint greens) and Base Coat IV (bold textures, such as brick, metal, wood).

  • Also from KaiserCraft: the coolest textured metal dies! Think of all the possibilities using honeycomb, bubbles, netting, woven, bricks and diamond dies!

  • We've got gobs and gobs of scrapbook papers - we love this stuff as much as you do! We must confess; we had to buy a new paper rack to accommodate all these beautiful papers from such vendors as Blue Fern Studios, BoBunny, Fabscraps, Photo Play, KaiserCraft, Graphic 45, Dare 2B Artzy, Echo Park, Carta Bella, Paper House, Reminisce and more, more, more!

  • We know you've created some pretty awesome 12x12 scrapbook pages! But don't you think some of them should be displayed on the wall instead of hidden in a scrapbook? We've got the solution! Check out the pretty 12x12 frames from Prima Marketing!

Wishful Thinking Monthly Card Classes!
Plan on gathering at the shop on the 2nd Tuesday of the month for some serious play time and card making! Join us from 1:30 to 3:30 to learn new techniques, create beautiful cards, and meet other stamping enthusiasts! How fun is that? Please call in advance to reserve your seat, 812-988-7009.

"Create A Card" Classes are Back!
We have such fun with these classes! Spend an hour with us every Wednesday afternoon in July, August and September (from 2:00pm - 3:00pm) and create a card. Different cards and techniques will be offered each week, so you'll want to be here every Wednesday. We just ask that you call at least 24 hours in advance to reserve your seat. The cost? Just $5!

*** Note: Because of our Used Stamp & Craft Sale, we will not have a class on July 19. ***
