Along with almost all the other retailers, papercrafting sources are also discounting this time of year. A few days ago, I saw an announcement on Stampin' Pretty's blog that Stampin' Up! had added a bunch of stuff to their clearance rack. Once I saw what they added, I placed an order that day! It came in this week and I'm delighted with the items. Here are a few of them:
This paper called Presto Patterns has a texture - sort of like embossing but flatter - that appears when you add ink or spritzes or pastels. I experimented and like the effect of pastels and inks best. It is a great use for those pastels that tend to stay in the drawer. This photos certainly doesn't do them justice.
The item that really sold me on ordering was the upgrade kit for the Watercolor Wonder crayons. I had all the old colors but just didn't want to spend $40 in the catalog last year to buy the upgrade kit. It is now $12 so I'm really happy I waited! The clearance rack sales stay on as long as they have product.
Also, over at Two Peas in a Bucket there is an extra 10% off sale items and a free shipping promotion through Dec 31. So far I've resisted this one having already shopped their Thanksgiving sale.
Visit Nichol Magourik's blog for a code to discount Ella Publishing E-books through Dec 31. These e-books are about the same price as a regular scrapbooking magazine (less with the discount) and you get really tailored content + a bunch of inspiring layouts.
Thanks for visiting! Happy after Christmas Shopping!
