Stamp and Ink News

I wanted to give you the heads up about changing prices for some of the items in the new Idea Book.  There is good news and there is bad news.  The good or should I say GREAT news is that all stamp set prices are going down!  Stamp sets that begin with the letter A will now be only $6.95, letter B stamp sets are only $9.95, letter C stamp sets are only $13.95, letter D stamp sets are only $17.95 and letter E stamp sets are just $29.95.  This is great news for you and for me.  Now I can get more stamps for my money.
The bad news is that the price of colored card stock is going up.  All colored cardstock packs of 24 sheets will now be $14.95, excluding White Daisy and Colonial White which will be $9.50.  Packaging and availability is changing, too.  Out of our 60 color pallet, there will be only 15 colors available in 24 packs (colors listed below).  Cardstock combo packs will be available for all color seasons containing 2 each of 12 colors.  Cardstock Shade Packs are being introduced containing 4 sheets each of 3 colors in shades of pinks, or blues, ect.
No colors are retiring but many colors were shuffled around so you will see them in a different season than where they were before.  There are no ink pad sets or markers sets for sale at a discount.  Only individual markers or ink pads.
To try to save a little money, I will be placing an order for myself to stock up on 24 packs of certain colors of cardstock before the end of July.  If you have a color of cardstock you use all the time, you might want to take advantage of the lower price while you can.  If there are sets of ink pads or markers that you want, you might consider ordering them now.  Let me know if you would like me to place an order for you.  I will be placing my order by Sunday, July 31 at 8pm.  Or you can place your own order on my website and have your purchase shipped directly to you.  There are several items on the ‘While Supplies Last’ list that are heavily discounted including Crochet Flowers and Pretty Pins as well as My Stickease and other paper packs.  Take advantage of these great discounts.
I hope this helps you save a little money along the way.  Please feel free to call me with any questions you may have.  Happy scrampbooking!

Pics from Convention at Disney.

Here is the layout that is on the front cover of the new autumn/winter 2011 Idea Book. There was a pool and slide at the hotel. Beautiful at night. My Micky cookie.

Sneak peek at new Cricut cartridge!

Back from Convention...

...and ready to start playing with all of the new product.  I had a great time at conventionl.  I have not been to a convention in 4 years.  It is so much fun!  It was held at Disney in Anaheim, Cal. I roomed with 3 lovely ladies from N.C. with the most wonderful accents.  My room mate Denise Black taught a class for Extravaganza and won 2nd place in the Scrapbook Album contest.  She won $750.00 in new product!  I was so happy for her!  It was a privilege to celebrate her win with her.  She also found a Sticky Boy stamp for me. Yay!  
     So, on to new product news.  There are 8 beautiful newly revamped My Reflections Level 2 paper packs.  The B&T patterns are gorgeous.  They are double sided and now in card stock thickness!  That is because it is much easier to use with the new exclusive CTMH Cricut cartridge! 
     Yes, CTMH has designed an incredible collection of shapes, cards, flowers and an alphabet, all on one cartridge! Over 700 images!  It comes as a package deal with three D size stamp sets and three sheets of dimentional elements that all coordinate to the images this cartridge can cut out! Many images on the new stamp sets are compatible with images that can be cut out with the cricut and are identified with a red outline around it. 
     Workshop On The Go Kits now contain 2 accessories and a C size stamp set.  That is because our revamped Level 2 paper packs are smaller in the number of sheets of paper.  This means smaller in price as well.  Speaking of lower prices ...... the price of all stamp sets have been lowered!  Now a stamp set that starts with the letter A will only cost $6.95, B sets are $9.95, C sets are $13.95, and D sets are just $17.95! 
     There is so much more inside the pages of the new idea book.
