I know Oprah was referring to products like these when she came up with her catch phrase, "FAAAB-ULOUS!

And that's what we chanted when we discovered pop-up photo albums by Geoffengel Workshop! Every page opens to reveal a Fabulous! three dimensional sculpture, some of them even with motion.

And not only that, each frame holds a 4 x6 photo and opens to reveal a mini pop-up with another frame below!

The snowflakes above serve as mini frames.

So what's your take? Fabulous?

The Christmas Pop-up Photo Album retails for $70.00.

How Cute Are These?

New from Up With Paper - our favorite pop-up card company - these great little note pads. The covers are bright and beautiful, and once you open the magnet-secured cover, out pop these wonderful designs.

And speaking of monkeys!

I repeat, "How cute are these?" Come see them for yourself, and see our new Turning Points greeting cards from Up With Paper.

More on those little works of art later . . .

We Ain't Monkeying Around

Let's face it. We love monkeys! Whether we're watching them at the zoo, or behaving like one,  these little guys just have us smitten. So it's no stretch of the imagination that monkey themed invitations have been a favorite at our store.

Since we're always on the look out for these silly fellas, we recently spotted this adorable pair from Inviting Company. So adorable, we just had to add them to our inventory.

Swing on over and pick them up for your own little monkey! Supply is limited, but remember, with just about a week's time, we can special order for you from any of our Fabulous! vendors.

Keep special orders in mind when you're planning for that large party, or shopping for that invitation you can see in your mind but just haven't come across yet. Let us help you find that perfect invitation or plan for that special event. It's what we're here for!

Yes! We Do Custom Printing!

Did you know that along with carrying Fabulous! custom invitation lines such as William Arthur and Encore, we also do in-house custom printing for the extensive inventory of invitations we carry in store?

We love working with you to put together the perfect invitation, and we send you a photo proof of your invite before it's printed. We don't print until you say it's perfect.

And we're quick! Our posted turn-around time is 3-4 days, but there are those out there who know ~ we'll get it to you in less than 24 hrs if our printing schedule allows.

Here are two of my favorite invitations we've designed and printed recently.

I love it! Our "Customer of the Year," Susan Draper planned this Bridal Shower & Cocktail Party for her daughter-in-law to be. Now, who would want to miss that party? She chose a Fabulous! glittered invitation on a cream stock by Bonnie Marcus, and together we knocked out this ABFab! invite.

Not to be overlooked, we've printed some great kid's invitations too.

Leigh, another of our wonderful customers, was planning a birthday party for her son at the Young Chef's Academy. They were making pizza, so she chose Picture Perfect's die-cut pizza slice for the invitation and gave us carte-blanche to come up with the wording. How did we do?
