It’s time to check out the new online store

The new Mini Catalogue is now available online with better access on your desktop, your tablet or your smart phone. There are so many adorable stamp and die sets available for fall, halloween or getting a jump start on your Christmas crafting. Below is just one example on a bundle which could be used for both Christmas or Halloween and how versatile is that. Those owls are adorable and I can see them appearing on baby cards, anniversary cards or even birthday cards.


The online store will look a little different since it has now been revamped. Here are a few highlights;

Easier ways to navigate or search

The ability to sign into your account or checkout as a guest

Larger Images of products and samples

The ability to create a wish list

Easily create favourites

Be able to instantly send general feedback or tag a specific product

Instantly tells you if an item is reaching low inventory or is backordered

So I invite you to head on over to MY STORE and check out the new format and all the amazing products. Your account information and password will still work with the new site but because this site is new, you may need to sign in again, the first time you visit.

I will ask that when you visit and sign in, please select me as your demonstrator so it will be saved for future visits. NOTE: Whether you sign in to your account or checkout as a guest, if you don’t select a demonstrator one will be assigned for you.

Please use this month’s host code 6GSVXKPY when your order is $50 or more (before shipping and taxes) and receive a free gift from me! If your order is over $150, please do not use this code, but you’ll still get the free gift from me.

I love card and project kits because they are so easy to put together since everything is already pre-cut and ready to assemble. It is perfect for beginners or very busy people and it’s a great way to spend some time with family as you create together. Kids love doing crafts and what better way than to make something they will look forward to. This adorable advent calendar will do just that. It includes everything you need to make it up and each box is perfect for a small treat or two along with instructions. The kids will enjoy putting it together with you now and look forward to opening the boxes as we get closer to Christmas. Once christmas is over, you can pack it away to use next year.

Another example I want to share with you is the Halloween Nights Magic Bundle. This stamp and die bundle is just one of several bundles depicting halloween. There is plenty of time to get ready for that special night and it will be great fun to create treats or decorations for Halloween as shown below. You don’t need to wait then rush around at the last minute.

If you enjoy doing kits, don’t forget about the Paper Pumpkin kit.

Looking for something to do?

I hope everyone is staying home and remaining healthy. Are you getting bored yet? antsy? frustrated? All of the above? Know that you are not alone. Below are some ideas of what you can do at home to keep busy. While trying not to snack, because eating is my go to when I am bored, I created this gift box for my 11 neighbours and filled them with 6 home baked cookies (yes I had to taste test lol) and they were delivered to each door as a surprise. I wanted to just bring a smile to their faces and to let them know I am thinking about them.

I’ve also put together a few designs featuring the new card suite that will become available April 4th. Normally we wouldn’t see the new products until the new catalog comes out in June so this was a nice surprise. I was able to preorder a month early, which is just one of the perks of being a demonstrator. This suite is gorgeous and includes two sets of stamps/dies, embossing folder, gems and of course matching ribbon.  All of these can be purchased separately as well but the suite includes it all.  To view the online store, click here.

Since the kits include everything you need to make up the kit, you don’t need to go out to buy additional supplies. I love that.
