Flourishes…..and Blog Candy!!

May 29, 2007 at 10:23 pm 19 comments

WOW!! It’s finally here…my wonderful stamping friends, Jan Caruso and Sharon Dolittle and I have been working to create our own paper arts company. I’m thrilled to announce that Flourishes is now open for business. We started small, selling our cards at local stores, but soon realized we wanted to do more. Our online store… www.flourishes.org.. is offering some wonderful products.

First – our featured product is a set of Fabriano cards and envelopes. These are so hard to come by and we have a limited supply to offer you. We also offer Basic Grey papers in the 6 x 6 pads and a selection of May Arts Ribbon.

We soon will be offering ink pads, punches and our own stamp line and if you live in the Northwest Florida area, we hope to be opening the studio for classes in the near future.

Now for Blog Candy!! To qualify, please comment on what you think of our new online store and what products you would like to see. I’ll make a random selection from the comments on Sunday morning, June 3. The winner will receive this wonderful Summer Leaves set.

    Hello! Congrats on the new store! I would like to see more stamp sets on your site. I am also an embellishment person, so unique embellishments are cool to have on your site too. Thanks!

    Congratulations on the store, so far I like what I’ve seen and I’m anxious to see your stamps. What I would love to see you sell are Melissa Frances scrapbook items. There are stores that carry some items here and there but never much. I’d love to be able to buy her papers, stickers, etc. all in one place. If you do start to carry them, let me know!!

    I love your store and I would think you would do well with having a blog and store together.
    I love the polka dot ribbons you sell.

    My curiosity is peaked! I prefer unmounted rubber stamps…I love retro, nautical, vintage…and having a good gallery definitely helps sells your stuff.

    Good luck! I’ll be watching for more stuff.

    wow! what an adventure starting a new store!! you are already going to carry what i want to see more of—may arts ribbon (insert happy dance here)!! so on top of that–hmmmmm…..more ribbon? i will check back soon to see how it’s coming along!!

  • 15. Michelle  |  May 31, 2007 at 2:54 pm

    Great job ladies!! I like how it is all coming together for you. Would be nice to have a “featured technique of the month” section 🙂

    I love that you have all that Basic Grey PP and ribbon in stock…I have been longing for that Lily Kate line forever! I always like to see hard-to-find items in the online stores (I know…that is an outlandish request) since I can then justify the shipping and exchange! I love the Stampendous flower stamps (from their spring line), primas, DP from Cosmo Cricket, Heidi Grace, Basic Grey, etc. and all sorts of ribbon!

    Great store…love the yummy ribbon. You could totally help feed my paper addiction for sure. Good luck & thank you for the blog candy offer.

    I am a member of SCS and saw Jan Marie Carusso’s post about the beginnings of you new online store. I visited and am interested in what you will have available.

    I checked out your store and am super excited for you. I also thought of taking the leap but decided that it would have to wait until my children are grown. In the meantime I plan on giving you some of my business when you get your stamps produced. I can’t wait to see them!
