Business to take care of

So lets get to it and then we can have fun!

We've had a lot of people ask us if we'll be carrying the Slice, its accessories or the Design Cards. Right now, we will not be carrying the Slice. However, if you want to special order one, we will do it for you. There is an option in the store under Making Memories/Slice to place a pre-order for the machine. You will pay $74.99 up front and we will order the machine. The other $74.99 is due when the machine arrives and we are ready to ship it out to you. We can have the machine in our hands in 5-7 business days. We can also order the Design Cards for you. Please email me at and I can order the cards you want. It will be the same system for the cards, half now and half when the card arrives. (The good news is, the Slice payments are eligible for any sales or specials we have running i.e. Free Shipping, Stash Cash promotions etc).

Ribbon RAK winners - I heard from one of the two winners on my blog so I had to redraw names. Two new winners are announced on my blog. Two? I have enough ribbon to spread some more love around. Email me if you're the winner!

January promotions - these are always listed on the sidebar. I update them each month (or whenever there is a new promotion). This month, for all orders over $50.00 you receive free shipping (US orders only) and $5.00 in Stash Cash.

I just sent out emails with Stash Cash codes - enjoy these when you place your next order!
CHA - Its that time of year again. This week, we've seen more Sneak Peeks from more manufacturers. We'll be back on Thursday or Friday to recap the rest of the Sneaks. If you're anxious, you can always check out the Manufacturer blogs on our sidebar. We'll be updating those links during CHA. October Afternoon has a new blog - YEAH - so we'll be updating that as well as Dream Street and adding a few new ones!

CHA also means that its time for the biggest markdown of the year. Normally I like to announce the new sale items on 'Markdown Monday's' but this was so huge, it took me an extra day to get the items marked down! Almost every item in the store is on sale! Only the newest products are excluded. So hurry over to the SALE section of the store! A lot of items are very low in stock so if you have your eye on something - get it now!

Product marked down to 25% for the first time.
Items that were 25% off are now 40-50% off
Items that were 50% off are now 60% off (WOW!)

Reorders - we sold out of a lot of things last week during the Birthday Bash sale. Looking for some of the new items? Our restock should be here any day now!

And now the real fun - A Sketch Challenge.

During CHA, each of our Design Team members will be taking a day to discuss their favorite new products, issue challenges, highlight techniques etc. While I'm working the show floor to bring you pictures and videos of the latest and greatest, you have a chance to play along.
The party starts Saturday with Carrie and ends Thursday with me! I wanted to give some of you a head start on this (with the weekend coming up and all).

Carrie designed the cutest sketch and we want to see what you can do with it! There is a gallery ready and waiting for your layouts using this sketch. There are no limits to this. You can make a layout (any size), use it in any direction (horizontal or vertical) or as a card! Its pretty versatile!
Of course, what would a sketch challenge be without a prize? What can you win? How about some Stash Cash and freebies from CHA!

To get you thinking about it, here is the sketch:

And what Carrie did with it:
