Well, we are all down to the wire… I am not nearly done with all the Christmas preparations I had in store- are you? I know many of you are still looking for that perfect gift or stocking stuffer for your crafty friend, family member or co-worker, am I right? I thought that I would share MY Top 10 Year End Closeout and Weekly Deal MUST HAVES for 2014. These are in NO particular order but they are all staples in my studio.
MUST HAVE #1 – MERRY MINI PUNCH PACK
This has got to be one of my all time FAVE punch packs… they are just so awesome, and I get so many uses from the little ornament. Let your imagination run wild with punch art possibilities!
MUST HAVE #2- ORNAMENT KEEPSAKE SET
I am in LOVE with this set, and was SO sad when Stampin’ Up! retired it. I made some GORGE projects with this set… and I will be honest with you- if you don’t get it now you really will kick yourself. Because you will see some FAB projects with it on Pinterest, and you will go looking for it, and the only place you will find it is Ebay and you will pay upwards of $100 for the framelit and stamp set bundle… don’t let that be you.
MUST HAVE #3- HOLIDAY ORNAMENT FRAMELITS
Yes, these framelits TOTALLY coordinate with the stamp set above… which makes cutting these babies out a total breeze!! You will kick yourself for not getting these while you can, and for a steal of a deal no less…
MUST HAVE #4 – MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS CARD KIT
We all need a cute card kit on hand for when we realize that are ” a day late and a $1 short…” I sent out all my Christmas cards this year and then received 3 more that I didn’t have cards to send them… so I pulled out my trusty card kit, whipped a couple up- slapped my crazy Christmas pic in there and BAM, I am covered!
MUST HAVE #5- PRETTY PRINT EMBOSSING FOLDER
What can I say… you can never go wrong with an embossing folder. They are ALL must haves. I love this one because it works literally for every occasion… I have used it for things from Halloween to wedding projects and everything in between- PLUS it’s on sale!!
What can I say, I love things that are versatile… yes, of course this is a FAB collection of page elements for all those seasonal pages BUT these also make super awesome card elements too… if you haven’t tried whipping out a card using a PLxSU piece you MUST give it a try. It’s awesome!
Of course, if you get the card collection you NEED the accessory pack… these are all coordinating embellishments and additional page elements that would also dress up any card project!
MUST HAVE #8- WATERCOLOR WONDER NOTE CARD SET
What can I say… I like to be prepared… I LOVE this set of printed card bases. I can do something as simple as add a sentiment and send it off, or take it up a notch and add some punched pieces or 3-d elements to dress them up even more. There are a ton in the set, and they are on SALE so either way they are a MUST!!
MUST HAVE #9- DELICATE DESIGNS EMBOSSING FOLDERS (2)
That’s right…. there are 2 folders in this set!! They are so cool too, because these are strip type embossing folders. They do a thin portion of the card stock which makes for a perfect finishing touch! You will see how awesome they are once you begin to use them, then you will find yourself using them on everything! LOL!!
MUST HAVE #10- GOLD ENCORE INK PAD
The only thing I can say is, seriously… I don’t think I should even have to give a reason. This is the most used ink pad in my studio currently, and in a few days you will see why- and I promise you will LOVE it!! If you don’t already own this, you are suffering from some type of illness- most likely it’s the flu, that’s going around But you can still point and click with the flu, so you’re good.
Don’t take my word for it, CHECK OUT ALL THE YEAR END CLOSEOUT ITEMS AND THE CURRENT WEEKLY DEALS for yourself… remember that the closeout items are available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST, meaning that those current catalog items that are included have a limited number available at the discounted price- once those are gone the price goes back up to catalog list.
Also, the weekly deals that are currently listed END TONIGHT AT MIDNIGHT!! There will be a whole new selection of items starting tomorrow- so get them NOW! And last but not least… don’t forget-
