A Sample and *FLASH SALES* - coming soon !

Hello !
I was sorting through some paper and I came across these pieces I had diecut quite a while ago ... thought I would share so you could see just how beautiful these dies are. That dog silhouette is lovely ... and how about the paw print in the heart ?

Spellbinder's die set ... $17.99.

Okay now ... FLASH SALES !!
The quick sale I posted yesterday was a great success ... almost every die gone within an hour. 
So I decided that I would try to do that weekly ... but at a specific time so everyone knows when to check in ! And in the evening so those who are away at work during the day won't miss out. 
So ... Wednesdays at 8pm.
(I'm setting the post up on a schedule to self publish so we'll see how that goes ... lol. I've added a bit of extra time so I can see if it works . Technology ... scary stuff !!)
Just comment on the items you want. First comments here , in an email, or on Facebook (they're all time stamped) will get the items. I'll message you with a total the next morning. You can pay within 24 hours of commenting either by an email transfer or by credit card. Don't worry about when you can pick them up ... as long as they are paid for, I can hold them as long as you need. Or you can pile them up until you have a box full to make shipping worth while. 
Watch for some great deals as I dig through the vault !! 
This week's product will be from Spellbinders. 
See you Wednesday at 8pm !smile emoticon

They work beautifully to allow you to add foil to your projects without a Minc machine or a laminator. This is the tag I made ... can you see that shine ?!

Click on the photo in this link to see the process and the photos. 

Another PRIMA product that I tried out was the Opal Magic paint ... mind. blown. This paint is amazing ... magical !! I could not believe my eyes when I saw the different colours FROM THE SAME BOTTLE !!
Yes !! both of these tags were painted with the exact same paint !
Wow !
It's really hard to capture in photos but this work in progress canvas looks green and when it is tilted, violet !!
You'll have to drop in and see it in person. 
Click here to see the amazing results !!

And now ... A CRAFTING SUPERHERO !!! Can you guess what it is ?? A LAMINATOR !!!
I have been laminating seed signs and decided to play around with it to see what else I could do with it. Well, it was remarkable ! I used it to add foiling accents instead of a Minc machine and I used it to flatten watercoloured papers and cards. Perfect !! Click on the blue highlighted date to see just what I did with it ... and then go to Staples and get one !! You'll love it !

I'm in love with the laminator ! I've been laminating signs lately and decided I would play around with the laminator...
