Discount Product Just Listed

So this is the time of year the manufacturers try to clear out their old stuff to make room for the stuff they will be selling at the trade show next month.  Lots and lats of bargains and the UPS man is complaining of a sore back.

Lots of this stuff will be part of the 10,000 sale (looks like next week) but the stuff is being listed now, it will just get tagged and categorized for easier shopping next week.

Today's highlight, and now listed, is the Old School Collection by Pink Paislee.  This is the perfect product for scrapping your school or graduation.  Some of the items are not necessarily school specific.  There are 12x12 papers, 6x6 papers, transfers, metal buttons, canvas borders, flip notes, clear cards, tinsel ribbon and so much more.  To purchase the entire collection, all of the stuff listed above is $19.00.  Certainly enough for a mini album and oh so much more.  You can see all the fabulousness at  If you want the whole collection, email me at and I'll put it all together for you and send you a paypal invoice for the whole thing - with a blog-follower-only bonus of 7gypsies stickers thrown in for good measure.

For you smash book lovers - see the fabulous silver fabric stretchy band perfect for your next creation - at a price that will make you want more than one.

If you are planning to shop the 10,000 sale next week and are worried about shipping, fill a cart, send me a note in the comment section that you are not done yet and I will hold your order until next week.

Canadian customers - I cannot ship to you at this time.  I cannot even take your packages to the post office.  You can either check out and pay and I will package and hold until I am able to ship or you can send me a list of the things you are interested in and I will hold them until I can ship.

 Have a great day and a great weekend.

Who knew that this little thing I started to do 901 days ago would take me here.

I am so grateful for all my fabulous customers....they are fun....they are loyal....they are fabulous.

I love getting going every morning wondering who I will hear from.  I love shopping for new items to sell, trying to envision which of you will order it.  I love when you tell me what you like and think about your stuff when you get it.

Thank you all so much for getting me here. 

Give me a couple of days to finish the details and the listings and I'll announce the sale.  Teaser?  7gypsies stickers and portfolios, pink paislee 6x6 pads, kaisercraft pearl brads, graphic 45 papers, more and more and more and more.....I've been saving up for a while.  Some things you have seen here before, and some have been ordered just with this sale in mind.

Again, thank you so much for getting me here....

Lions, and Dorothy, and Toto Oh My.....

For those of you who haven't seen it yet, Graphic 45's Halloween paper this year is based on Vintage Wizard of Oz images.  Talk about fabulous...  There are Witches and Wizards and all of the characters you know and love....right down to Toto.

Interesting thing ....with this collection, Graphic45 has stopped designing the tag sheet and frame sheet they usually issue out of paper and replaced it with two different sets of die cut chipboards.  All the other favorites, the 12x12 pad, 8x8 pad, and cling stamps are also available.

I was out of town this weekend and when I came home the neighbor came home with my boxes.  How excellent to come home from a fabulous wedding to see this great  product waiting for  You can see the whole collection at

Purchase any of the new Magic of Oz collection and I will put 5 sheets of Graphic45 papers from some of their other collections in the package with your Magic of Oz product.  Just put GIVEMEFREEPAPER in the comments (not coupon code) section of the order.

Stop by the shop at and take a peek.  You won't be disappointed....
