Time is Running Out

Time is running out to take advantage of the end of year closeout sale.  If you have an opportunity to shop my online store, you can see all the products on sale.  There are products from the annual catalog as well as the holiday catalog.  Many of the products are retiring and will not be returning.  You can shop my online store and download the flyer below.  These products are all on sale while supplies last and some products have either run out or are running low.

We also have a flyer you can download below to print out and keep.  This will make it much easier to keep track of what is on sale and what you want.  There really is so much to choose from. Please remember, bundles only last during the catalog time that the products are first introduced. After that catalog’s period of time is over, the products might carry over but the bundle pricing does not.  Please let me know if you have any questions about the sale or any of the products and happy shopping!

Another Great Savings

It’s time for another great savings opportunity.  Stampin’ Up! has just added more products to the Clearance Rack.  They refresh the Clearance Rack every couple of weeks and the timing couldn’t be better.  The combination of the Year-End sale and the Clearance Rack sale helps the savings really add up.    


Make sure to take a look at the Clearance Rack because the products are only while supplies last.  There is a lot that has been added but it will move quickly.  Take a look at a lot of the items that have been added that you can use for your Valentines’s projects next month.  There are some great gems in there.  
 
 You can take a look at all the products in my online store and pick up your favorites. 
 
Combine that with the year-end closeout sale and you can really shop at great savings!
Let me know if you have any questions about this sale.

Golden Ornament Wrap – 12 Weeks of Christmas Project 12

This golden ornament wrap was created with the All is Bright Designer Series Paper and the Tags & Tidings.  It’s a great holiday wrap and tag combination for the holiday season.  I really love all the paper in the Holiday Catalog this year.  It makes it almost impossible to choose.  So I decided to make a bunch of projects using all the different papers.  Maybe I have a DSP obsession.  Enjoy the last 12 Weeks of Christmas project and Happy Holidays.

All New Stamp Sets

Beginning with the 2019 occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure, all new stamp sets will be available either in cling (for red rubber stamps) or photopolymer! In the 2019-2020 annual catalog, clear-mount (red rubber) and wood-mount* stamps will no longer be available. *The only exception is background stamps which will still be available in wood-mount.

Cling stamps feature the same quality red rubber stamps you’ve always loved and they now come with highly adhesive image labels. The benefit is that they will cling like crazy to clear blocks so you don’t have to worry about your stamp image shifting or falling off of the block.  Take a look at this quick video and see what I mean.

If you want to see a sneak peek of some new Occasions stamp sets, this flyer shows all the new ones that will be available in Cling starting January 3. Link to the pdf HERE.
