Hello !!
Today it's all about paper ... Paper prices have been climbing ... up. lol. Between the weak Canadian dollar, regular price increases, and crazy shipping costs, paper prices have been rising every week. Each time I order, the prices have gone up. Each new collection has a bigger price tag on it. Ugh. I am now finding that some of the paper costs me as much as I charged selling it a few months ago.  I am also seeing a big discrepancy between companies ... the prices vary quite a bit . Add some foil or glitter and the paper costs more. I always charged the same price for all the papers & absorbed the difference but with all the increases I have had to raise my prices several times over the last few months as well as be very selective about which lines I bring in. So ... I am giving you a chance to stock up and me a chance to make room for some new papers so that I can put them out for sale.
This week only ...
Patterned paper
75 cents per sheet !!!!

(that's the 'regular' paper ... doesn't include specialty foils, glitters, vellums, etc)
So stock up !!!!
The usual ... no holds or layaways. 

And there are also deals on 12x12 cardstock !! I am not going to be carrying 12x12 cardstock by the sheet in the future. I will order packages for people - either 25 sheet packs of one colour or assorted packs - but I won't be carrying it by the individual sheet. I will however, continue to carry the 8.5 x11 paper by the sheet. I find I have a much greater percentage of card makers than I do scrapbookers, and even the scrapbookers I have are moving to smaller albums. But don't worry, if you need 12x12, just let me know and we can set up a special order ! 
So this week I will be doing up packages of 12x12 cardstock ...

12 x 12 cardstock
20 sheet packs 
A great chance to stock up for future projects !!!

So that's the sale this week !!! Great opportunity to fill up your supply cabinets. 

I just sent off  a big order to my bead supplier ... I'll soon be restocked with tools & findings and will also have some fun new products to share ... fabric cording, pellet beads, and more. 

Watch next week for some great new products like the Tim Holtz Distress Crayons . 

Also ... my supplier is now carrying Paper Smooches stamps & dies. I will be ordering in some but won't be stocking the entire line - there are so many ! But I am posting the links to their blogs so you can see what they have. If you want any special ordered, just let me know !!
