New Arrivals @ Inky Hot Mess

Happy Tuesday! I'm back with more new arrivals! Let's get to it!

We have received a ton of new products from Echo Park!!! We have 12x12 Mini Theme kits from A Fair to Remember, Lucky Charm, Off Road, Football, Baseball, and Basketball.

A Fair to Remember is all about going to the fair. Lucky Charm is all about St. Patrick's Day, but it works very well for Irish Step Dancing, a trip to Ireland, someone with an Irish name, and anyone who loves green. Off Road was made for those guys who are into ATVs, motorcycles, cars, trucks, anything with an engine. Football, Baseball, and Basketball are about those sports.

6 new dinosaur dies! Each die is a real dinosaur like you'd find in a science book.

The Easter collection has arrived. We have the 12x12 paper collection, 6x6 paper pad, ephemera die cuts, stamps, dies, and stencils.

The Spring collection has also arrived. We have the 12x12 paper collection, 6x6 paper pad, stencils, dies, and ephemera die cuts.

We have 3 more 6x6 paper pads for Valentine's Day or love in general....they are Adore from Authentique, Hello Love by Crate paper, and Be Mine from Pebbles.

New tool alert! The Heat Wave from We R Memory Keepers is now available. Oh and we still have the Fuse from WRMK and the waterfall pages for it.

We have a few new items from Crafter's Companion. They own Spectrum Noir and Spectrum Aqua. From Spectrum Noir we now have the Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock available in packs of 20 sheets and 50 sheets. This is the cardstock we used in the 101: Alcohol Marker Workshop earlier in the month. From Spectrum Noir, we have the Watercolor Cardstock.

We have numerous requests for Scor-Tape. We have had it in stock before, but it quickly sold out. We have restocked the 1/4" Scor-Tape and have added the 1/2" Scor-Tape.

 Have a Minc machine? We have the Snowflakes and Snowflake Banner kit in stock now. These look gorgeous when foiled!

Our order of Sandstone Brusho has arrived. We have 7 colors of Brusho powdered watercolor paint. Think of a rainbow assortment.

We have 2 new collections from Jillibean Soup. Sew Sweet Shine Soup is all about sewing. Fur Fusion is for the pet lover. This collection covers both cats and dogs. We have the 12x12 paper collection, placements (3x4 die cuts), ephemera die cuts, stickers, and wood veneers for both of these collections.

That's the end of what we have received so far this month! Quite a bit. The store looks so very different than even a month ago! We have more orders coming this week so I'll be back later in the week talking about what's new. We're also working on our website and adding more items everyday to our online shopping!

The new shopping cart has been launched. We have added many products to our online shop. It will take us several weeks to get all of the products offered in our downtown Geneva shop uploaded to the shopping cart. We currently have over 3,500 different products available in our retail shop. Hundreds more are on there way to us! CHA was last month and wowee some amazing new products are being released over the next few months.
