Upcoming changes to our 
store hours... 

We will be closed on the following dates: 
  • Fri, Sat & Sun, August 2, 3, 4 for family vacation

We offer a number of services to help make life easy for our customers:
  • Private get togethers
  • If we don't have what you need in the store, we will place pre-order on your behalf, shipping paid by TPBP
  • We have hundreds of dies and will cut to order what you need
  •  Gift certificates are available 
  • We sell on consignment.  If you are interested in selling, call the store for details.
Let's Swap! 

TPBP will host an ongoing  Artist Trading Card (ATC) Swap for our in-store shoppers.  ATCs are a fun way to share your art with other artists while also creating a collection of works from other artists.  
Here's how the on-going swap will work:
  1.  When you visit the store, let me know that you'd like to swap ATCs and we will, it's that simple!
  2. We will limit the swap to once a month per person
If you are wondering what the heck an ATC is, follow this link for a definition, instructions and a video.  

Dear Friends,

By the time you start reading this newsletter I will be on road to my summer camping trip with my family and friends.  This means that the store will be closed today, Fri, Aug 2 thru Sun, Aug 4.  Our normal business hours will resume on Wed, Aug 7 - I look forward to seeing you when I return!

New Products Coming Soon
Soon after I return from my camping trip, I expect to be receiving many of the new product we ordered for the shop while we were at CHA.  As they roll in we will post their arrival and availability on our Facebook page.  So, if you have not already done so, you are going to want to "like" us on Facebook to ensure that you have the latest news on the arrivals of the latest products.

Creative Inspiration
Each week my amazing design team uses The Piece by Piece products to create projects with the hope of providing creative inspiration to our customers.  I hope you take away a little inspiration today...
Mini Book in a Jar by Van Ha

 Van used  a canning jar to house her mini album, entitled, "Life's Preserves." It's a clever play on words as well as a creative way to display treasured memories. 


Take a look at Van's video and blog post to see how she constructed this beauty:  Video Blog

Altered Box by Rosanne Carr


Rosanne's Moulin Rouge inspired box is filled goodies and covered with even more goodies from TPBP. We love how the lace, hand-mad flowers, resin pieces and bling just play beautifully together as they adorn the box.


Project details can be found on Rosanne's blog and video:
