Small Business Saturday

hp photosmart 720

Tomorrow is Small Business Saturday!  I encourage all of you to shop the great locally owned stores.  I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving got some great deals at the Black Friday sales, and are now ready to find the unique items in the small stores.   Of course, I would love to see you tomorrow, and in addition to the specials I have had all this week, I am including the specials from last week, and changing the My Favorite Things special to 40% off the MTF dies.  Now is the time to get one of those large dies that you have been eyeing.  There will also be a special gift with a purchase.  So if you haven’t bought YOUR gift yet,  stop in tomorrow.

The card shown is another one that I did with the Gelatos.   I used them with a resist to get the stamped pattern.  I’m working on a class, and this is one of the techniques that we’ll learn.


The Twelve Days of Christmas

This is the first time I have tried the imbed technique with die cuts.  It’s hard to see, but the thanks are cut from the background paper and a cream colored paper.  The cream die cuts are then placed in the “holes” of the printed paper.  The twine wrapped around the card doesn’t show very well on the picture either.  It’s an interesting technique.

Now, here are the specials for this second week of the Twelve Days of Christmas:  Zip Dry glue is $5.50 reg, $9.49;  Cor’dinations cardstock is 3 sheets for a $1.00;  Distress Ink Pads are 30% off;  Clearance items are 50% off the already reduced price;  Christmas stamps are 40% off; and buy any My Favorite Things die or stamp set and get the second MFT die or stamp set of equal or less value 50% off.  These specials are while quantities last and is valid this week until Nov. 29th.  These specials will not be added to loyalty cards.

R.U. Stampin’ & Scrappin’ will be open regular hours this week, except for Thanksgiving Day.  Enjoy your holiday!

This new die from Taylored Expressions makes a simple, but beautiful card.  A new order arrived Saturday, and this die was in it.  The sweater design die is also now in the store along with the Snowfall embossing folder.  And, you should see the leaf embossing folder.  It’s stunning!

The Grid Dies Are Back In Stock

I really love this grid die.  You can use it, as I did on this card, as a frame for the embossed squares.  Or, place the squares and then remove the grid.  It can also be used to just place a row of squares or other combinations of squares.  It also can be used for a window.  It’s really a very versatile die.  I just got them back in stock, so get yours right away.

While you’re in the store, be sure to check out the new paper cutter.  I just got the Cutterpillar in today, and I’m really impressed.  Quarter inch marks will make cutting mats so much easier and accurate.  The rotary blade self-sharpens, so no need for replacements.  The gear-driven blade makes effortless, straight cuts.  I like anything that makes life easier.  This would be a great Christmas gift!

Make n’ Take Cards

Here are the two Make n’ Take cards that you can make in the store this week.  Stop in and you’ll have two Christmas Cards to send.  If you haven’t had time to make your Christmas cards, I still have card kits available.  Give the store a call, and I’ll have them ready for you.

New Die

I love this cutting plate!  It looks like a Nordic sweater.  I just cut it out of kraft cardstock and overlaid it on red.  Very simple and great for any occasion this winter.  Like the die?  It’s in the store along with a lot of new designs.  See you soon!
