so as promised.. from monday's post :) I made my way into my studio this week and created not one, but TWO Behind the Art videos for you!!.. i know.. i know.. actually it's only two because I rambled on so long and got carried away playing with all the new art supplies I realized my video was too long to post on youtube (they give you a darn time limit).. so i had to break it down into two videos. But that's okay right? lol
So over the last few weeks I have been busy on a lot of things, but one of the biggest things was ordering and adding new products to our Scarlet Lime mixed media Shop.
For those of you that don't know.. My husband and I started a papercrafting Kit club back in 2007... Scarlet Lime http://www.scarletlime.com/store/products.php?cat=38 . Over the years the kits have progressed into including not just papercrafting products but fun things for mixed media as well. However earlier this year.. when I launched my first online Workshop, the She Art Workshop..I found myself demonstrating and using all these fun art supplies but my students were having trouble finding all the supplies in their local stores and on the web.. so in February, we decided to expand our Kit club to also be a full on-line mixed media store!The store started out in our house.. took over our back hallway.. or kitchen and in our living room within just 2 weeks.. so we moved IT and our kit club (which has been in our home for 4 years).. to a warehouse earlier this summer! It's been HEAVEN having a space for all of it! If you haven't seen the video on the warehouse.. it's kinda fun.. here is the link here.. Warehouse Video..
But I love the store.. Which includes everything from paints, to canvases, art journals, stamps, sprays, art mediums and pastes, watercolor mediums, stencils, paper.. you name it.. we have it. 1000's of products in the store! it's crazy! THE BEST part of the shop.. is that um.. I designated myself to "test" ALL new products.. (I am so laughing right now..).. you know.. just to make sure you guys will like them too. lol. Ben always asks me as I am hauling out a box of goodies from the warehouse.. "do you REALLY need those? and I am like.. um.. heck ya? Gotta test them and make sure they are great! I think it just mostly bothers him when I forgot to take the product out of our online inventory.. oops.. yea. I am working on remembering that minor detail :))
Oh and speaking of testing and creating projects.. I also send them to my Scarlet Lime Artist team and they create fun projects all month long on our blog and in our online store gallery. (if you haven't ever checked out that blog you should. they are crazy talented!.) check out the Scarlet LIme Blog .. you'll love it!
So anyhow.. since I had ordered so many of the new fall products in, i thought it would be fun to create some projects using them and do a video! It's always so much more fun for me, as a customer to see the products in action, rather just "online" as an image.. so thought these videos would be fun!
When I get new products..like new stamps, or stencils.. paints etc, I like to create simple "example" tags .. that I can refer to later when I want to remember what a color or a stamp or a stencil looks like on art.
Anyhow! enough talk.. how about some videos!!? oh! and one more thing.. since I LOVE my bloggers soo much and think you women simply ROCK..If you use this special code : IHeartYou when you check out.. you will receive 15% off your entire order.. today and tomorrow :).
Here's a direct link to most of the new products.. (new products) . I also just restocked my favorites that we haven't been able to keep in stock, like my favorite Crafters workshop stencils, Unity Stamps,ROLLERS stamps.. Faber Castell Pens, Paint dabbers.. so many things. Keep in mind we are leaving out of town friday, for 10 days with our kids.. so the warehouse will be closed all of next week.. but my husband is going to work his behind off to get as many or all of the orders he can that come in before we leave Friday.. :) So I would suggest doing it today.. to make sure it goes out before we leave :).. anyhow.. Love you awesome people!
oh! and I have already scheuled some fun blog posts for next week.. while I am gone.. so I won't be "missing" in action.. one of the many things on my list to do before i go.. but wanted to have something fun on the blog while I am gone too :) so check back next week for some new posts!
