Cyber Monday

Hi All,

Today seems a little anti-climatic, doesn’t it? The online sales have creeped into Black Friday, so it almost seems too late to announce a sale! But, there are still a few old ones going on and a couple new ones…

  • Stampin’ Up!’s last day of the Online Extravaganza is today. View the list of products on sale HERE. Shop HERE.
  • New! Simon Says Stamp is having 50% off all dies in the Sale category now through Wednesday! That’s pretty big. CLICK HERE to see all the eligible items. Use code DIES at checkout.
  • New! Stamp-n-Storage has several new Cyber Monday sales – see them HERE, including 15 free magnetic die cards with a $100 purchase and 10% off punch and ink holders. Also, the weekend sales are still going on through the end of Monday.
  • Another noteworthy sales is My Favorite Things. 30% off everything except their November release. Use code THANKS at checkout. This sale ends today.

Have a wonderful week!


Sale Update

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! One more addition to the sale line-up from yesterday’s sale post:

Simon Says Stamp is having 15% off everything in the store, Friday and Saturday. Use code BLACKFRIDAYSALE at checkout.



Sales, Sales, and More Sales…

Right after Thanksgiving, I typically feel a diluge of two emotions: renewed optimism and severe anxiety. I feel optimistic because I just know I’m going to get all my holiday preparation done early because I am SO on top of it. And then on the other hand, I feel a rush of angst that I won’t measure up to the expectations. Can you relate?

Personally, I take advantage of the crafting sales this time of year for myself! I’ll give my husband links to what I want, but some items I just have to buy. Have to. :)

I made a list of my favorite crafty gift ideas HERE. These are the bigger items that are definitely harder to purchase for yourself without guilt (it’s my issue, I know).

There are really a lot of sales, but these are the ones at stores I shop at frequently. Some of the links I provide here are affiliate links, which means that I get a small percentage of the sale if you click from here (although you pay nothing extra).

  • Stampin’ Up! – Online extravaganza, now through Monday. Up to 50% off lots of products!
  • Simon Says Stamp – Today’s sale (Thursday) is 30% off all Simon-branded products – stamps, dies, paper, inks… Use code SIMONBRAND at checkout. Tomorrow it will be something else! I will post again tomorrow with an update.
  • Ellen Hutson – this one is broken down into parts. Note: if you’re shopping for Copic markers, Ellen already has great deals, and with the discount it’s even more epic. My experience with this sale is that stock runs out quickly. Here are the times to shop:
    • TONIGHT! 20% off everything in stock for 9 hours, Friday, 12am PT – 9am PT. Use code early2015. When I told my husband about this sale, he handed me $20 to not wake him up at 2am. Haha!
    • 15% off everything in stock Friday through Monday. Use code anniv2015.
    • 20% off whatever is left in stock for 9 hours, Monday, 12am PT – 9am PT. Use code cyber2015.
  • Stamp-n-Storage – Lots of savings based on how much you spend, free shipping, and new starter kits.
  • – daily deals! Lots of things on sale, and it changes daily (today is 20-70% off Sizzix!). CLICK HERE for the list.
  • My Sweet Petunia – MISTI, pad, cleaner, and grid paper for $55 on FRIDAY ONLY, which is a $20 savings.

Enjoy your shopping! I know I will. :)



SU Sale

Hi All,

I know this is a big week for sales. I will be posting on Black Friday with some sales that I am “anticipating” will happen. In the meantime, there are two sales going on that I think are worth looking into right now….

Stampin’ Up!’s Online Extravaganza! This annual sale is always awesome. Lots of discounted current products – not the leftovers from the Clearance rack! In fact, it’s so big that Stampin’ Up! releases a list of everything on sale before it starts. You can find the list HERE. Take a look and make your list ahead of time because several items are only on sale for 24 hours. The sale begins MONDAY! Shop at my sister’s store.

Stamp-n-Storage is having a scratch-and-dent sale. If you’re okay with an imperfect product, you can get it as a discount.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!


Waterfall Snowman Holiday Photo Card

Snowman Waterfall Card

Hi All!

Today I am a guest on the Simon Says Stamp blog with my 2015 holiday photo card! It’s a waterfall card made from a snowman. If you pull the tab that says “pull”, the snowman parts flip over to reveal a message underneath. The final “landing” snowman part has our holiday photo and the pull tab has a personal message.

Click here to read more about the card, see additional photos, and view the video. I also have the video posted at my community site, LiveLoveCards.

Enjoy and happy holidays!
