December Frenzy...last days

Just a reminder to you all that the December Frenzy sale winds up in a few days.  A couple of items have returned to regular pricing (see list below) but there are plenty more that are at hugely reduced prices.  Give me a call to get your hands on some great bargains!

I am also just about to replenish my stocks of mini catalogues, so if you didn't receive one, or would like to get one, please contact me in next 2 days before I submit my order.  If you have contacted me in past week about getting a catty, I have your request.

I hope you all had a wonderful Chrissy.  I have said goodbye to family today that stayed for the Christmas period and even with 3 kids in the house, it seems so quiet!!!  No doubt, they are just recharging their batteries.  We managed to finally get a family picture taken over Christmas and I will post that ASAP so you can see how much my little ones have grown!

December Frenzy products returned to full price:

  • Ornate Blossom wood mount - now $19.95
  • Every Moment wood mount - now $31.95

Please keep in mind that as various products on this special reach their sales limits, they will return to their normal retail prices.

Check out the list (click on the picture on the right hand side bar of blog) for ideas.

You still have time!

"I don't know what to get them"

Does this sound like something that you have uttered over the past week?  Is the person you are trying to buy the perfect gift for a little bit crafty?

Well, I can help you.

There is still time to order and receive a gift certificate from Graceful Impressions that can be spent on Stampin' Up! products.  Certificates start at just $25 and go up to whatever you wish.  At this stage, to have the certificate for Christmas, payment is only accepted by cash or by direct deposit (contact me for details).

If you require the certificate to be posted, PLEASE contact me BEFORE December 20th (that is this TUESDAY).  Also, add on $1.20 to your gift price to cover postage.  Certificates for pick up or local delivery can be ordered up to December 22nd.

Some Christmas card ideas

I know I have been promising some pictures of Christmas cards.....ugh, time just gets away.  No excuse though.  Here are 2 of my own Christmas cards that I will be handing out this year.  I hope to get on and post some more ideas in the next day or so.

This card is pretty much using up scraps of the DSP "Letters to Santa" that I had left over from various workshops and classes that I have held over October and November.  I teamed it with some of the wonderful Cherry Cobbler seam binding ribbon and the GORGEOUS Silver Glimmer paper that features in the new mini catalogue which is now live!  It is hard to photograph and keep it looking bright and shiny, so I tried again in the picture below....

 ...still not great but gives you the idea.  Suffice to say, it is really spectacular in real life.

This card is a blue and silver version of the one that I made up for all the ladies that attended the SU! dinner last week.  Except, their's was done in Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler cardstocks and Red Glimmer paper.  This one uses the Silver Glimmer paper teamed with Marina Mist and Night of Navy cardstocks.  I also used (on all the cards) the delightful Very Vanilla Velvet ribbon that features in the mini catalogue.  This is beautiful to touch and creates a wonderful tactile addition to your projects.

If you haven't received a mini catalogue as yet and would like to get your hands on a FREE one, simply email me your name and postal details and I will get one in the mail to you next week.

Also remember dates for Christmas postage:

  • For packages containing SU products - order NO LATER than December 15th (that's next Thursday).  These order will come direct from SU! warehouse to you.
  • For Graceful Impression gift certificates that are to be picked up or delivered local to Colac - order BY DECEMBER 22nd
  • For Graceful Impression gift certificates that are required to be posted - order BY DECEMBER 20th and add $1.20 onto your total to cover postage

If these dates are not met, I cannot guarantee that you will receive your purchase in time for Christmas day.
