Rubber Rewards

If you haven’t joined our Rubber Rewards program, this is an invitation to sign up to start earning free goodies – supplies.  All you have to do is stop in the store, and you will be set up with a card with six boxes on it.  When all of those boxes have been filled with the amount of a purchase, they will be totaled and you will receive 10% of the total to spend in the store on anything you like.  The only purchases that do not count on your card is the sales tax, the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine (since I discount it so heavily), and the Card Kits.

If you’re already a member, here’s a way to get even more rewards:  bring in a friend, who is not already a member, or an out of town visitor or family member (again who is not a member), and you will get her purchase amount added to your card, as well as hers if she joins.  If she chooses not to join, I will add her amount to your card anyway.  This is for visitors who do not have a card in the box.

So to recap, you get your reward when all 6 boxes on the card are filled.  I will total the amount spent and give you a store credit of 10% of the amount.   Spend $100.00 and get a credit of $10.00.

Already a member?  Come in tomorrow, Oct. 1st thru Saturday, Oct. 4th, and I’ll skip 2 boxes so you get your reward even sooner.  Come in next week Monday, Oct. 6th thru Saturday, Oct. 11th and I’ll skip one box.  Either way it makes the Reward come sooner.  And when you come in, please pull your card, so you can see how close your are.  Be sure to call with any questions.


Deer Card


This card is one that we did in Kittie’s class Friday night.  It really is a very simple and quick card.  Hopefully, the dies will be in the store in a few weeks.

Card from Kittie’s Class


Fall is on it’s way, and here is a cute card, using Impression Obsession dies, that we made in Kittie Caraciolo’s class.  I should have these dies in the store in a few weeks, and I hope to do a class soon after.

Another Substitution Card

This is another of the substitution card for the Christmas Card Kit.  The snowflake is die cut and the Merry comes from an Impression Obsession die with a tree and merry Christmas.

New Card for the Christmas Card Kit

Having used all the paper for a couple of the existing cards in the Christmas Card Kit, this is a substitute card.  It uses paper by SEI and the simple Peace stamped in turquoise.  Turquoise and grey aren’t your usual Christmas colors, but they seem to work.  Christmas is only 93 days away, so it isn’t too early to think about your cards.  The card kits are available in the store when I get back.

I will be leaving this Saturday, Sept. 20th for an Education and Trade Show Event in Orlando.  The store will be open all this week and Saturday until 1:00.  Then the store will be closed until 10:00 Wednesday, Oct. 1st.  If you wish to shop or need something, please come in this week.  I will be taking classes and shopping for new products.  Yes, I will be focusing on dies.  My plan is to teach some of the classes that I’ll be taking when I get back.

The card above uses the Circle Cutting Plate from Taylored Expressions.  The daisy is a stamp and matching die from Hero Arts.

This weekend is the Motorcycle Rally here in Hot Springs.  As I have done in other years, I am closing the store Friday and Saturday, Sept. 5th and 6th and visiting my grandchildren.  I hope that you will stop in the store Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, since I will be open regular hours on these days.  Hopefully, that does not inconvenience any of you.

The cards shown are two more of the Christmas Kit showing the insides to the cards.  The card kits are $25.00 for 20 cards, and the inside kit is $10.00.  If you live out of town and are not able to get to the store, I would be more than happy to mail them to you.  Cost for shipping is $5.50.  Just give me a call with your cc#.
