20% off Sale

Yesterday was going to be a day when I shared some exciting news about some fun new products I've been developing.

Unfortunately Yesterday was the day that my 19 year old nephew Mason Creek was killed in a car accident. This young man was a very big part of our family and was my son's best buddy for years. Many of you may remember chatting with him at shows.

Here he is at a show in Ohio...helping Aunt Julie (me) set display boards. He was quick whitted and would say the funniest things...things that were things he thought...and then spoke...like the time we were driving home from Arlington. Tom and I were arguing over something...don't remember what. Tom kept pushing..and said one final thing that pushed me over the edge...I started crying. Mason looked at Uncle Tom and said..."you were fine until that last comment..then you just pushed her over the edge". We all laughed until our sides split! The argument was over.

I will be busy all week helping with the family things and attending funeral services on Friday. Keely and Diann are holding down things at the shop, so operations should be normal. (those girls.... ROCK can I just say that?)

So today you'll be getting updated on some things I've been working on...and I'll tell you about our Tim Holtz/Ranger sale...but the detailed news of new products will have to wait for another day. I'm just out of time to pull together all the details I wanted to share with you.

I wanted to share with you my thoughts and recap about The 12 Tags of Christmas from Tim Holtz. We enjoy the tags because there is so much to learn from Tim Holtz. Each year I'm amazed that I've picked up new skill and ideas. The problem is...he does the tags at Christmas and we are all so dang busy. I wanted to recap with you about this and offer the 20% off sale NOW. Here's how it goes....try visiting Tim Holtz Blog and checking out the tags he made in December. Try picking up one new technique, or skill. Then check out our website where you'll find all the Tim Holtz/Ranger products are 20% off until next Tuesday. You must use coupon code ilovetim at checkout. Does not include Vagabond, new stickles colors, or wholesale orders.

You'll see Tim using lots of dies, embossing folders with his Vagabond Die Cut Machine. These are great tools, and they are all on the website. Please note that the manufacturing will NOT allow us to sell the machine lower than "mapping" pricing and so if you would like a Vagabond machine we can sell you one for $220.00. You will have to call us though, as we had to take the product off the site due to the mapping issue. (pricing)

If you want a more reasonably priced machine the Cuttlebug is a great option that will cut almost anything and we're offering it for $75.00 plus 20% off. That's a great deal..plus free freight on orders over $50.00

This layout shows a technique Tim Holtz loves to use. I embossed the white cardstock with Tim Holtz embossing folders, and then accented them using the ink blending tool and distress ink. You can see Tim Holtz do this on his blog. These are the kinds of things you can learn from Tim!

Here's a close up of the embossed snowflakes. I accented the snowflakes with I Rock Gems. The I Rock Tools is great for this kind of work...small details that add big PUNCH.
This photo shows my border. Handmade by ME using tulle and Tim Hotlz Tiny Attacher. I then accented the border with the I Rock Tool. Have I mentioned it's a great tool?

One of my favorite dies EVER...and it's by Tim Holtz...the Rosette Die. Accented here with blue ink and the ink blending tool, topped with punched snowflakes and the I Rock gem.

Remember all Tim Holtz and Ranger products on sale 30% off. (you must use coupon code ilovetim at checkout. Does not apply to Vagabond, New Stickles colors, or wholesale orders). Use the coupons Online and in the shop this weekend. (extended hours 9am-10pm Friday and Saturday)
