Inkadinkado order


We're placing an order with Inkadinkado this week! You can check out a lot of their catalog online HERE (unfortunately, most of their newest images are not online) and thanks to the strong Canadian dollar... we've got a pre-order special for you! If you pre-order any stamps listed on their online store, you can have them for the US retail price + 10% (due to shipping & brokerage fees). It's a great chance for you to save some money off our regular pricing :) With this special, the stamp set you see here would be just $14.30 Cdn! If you'd rather stop by the store and look through the catalog-- we'll offer you a 20% discount off our regular price for pre-orders as well. Happy shopping! This order will be sent out on Friday, so get your orders in before then!

Really. Check em out while we're still well stocked! And if you're someone from the bella party that pre-ordered, they're heeeere! Come and get em!

October 2007 SOTM



Introducing our October 2007 SOTM- Cuppa Love by the Stamp Barn! We've had fun playing with this guy, and I'm planning on using him in the packaging of some homemade cocoa mixes for gifties this Christmas! I even have one with some halloween candies in it in the works... but it's perfect for teas, hot chocolates, little packs of coffee... great for gift giving this time of year!


This first card is actually the only one made by me this month! I love this new paper by fancy pants... there is a baggie of hot chocolate showing through the cut out heart in the mug!


These cards are by Tanya, you can see how versatile this image will be-- it's great for Christmas cards, birthdays, October colds (I've got me one of those!)... and I love how she used the monkey (from the Animal House papers & stickers we just got in!) in her mug!




This last item, created by mom (Julie) is just a little header card with some hot chocolate behind it. So quick & easy! It'd be a great card insert or little giftie.

Our Button Bar (isn't it cute?)


There's 5 or 6 more button 'cocktails' hiding behind these! So fun!
