May Update


It's a great time to come in and shop for Grads and Dads...we're stocked to the brim with lots of goodies, including the "Old Guys Rule" paper and stickers, personalized school paper for Merrill, Marathon, Edgar, East, West, DCE and Newman. Not to mention all the new stuff that has been arriving daily. We just got five more huge boxes today from Inque Boutique. Can't wait to open them and get all the stuff on the shelves.While you're here, check out our large selection of patriotic and cookout items for your upcoming Memorial Day activities! Be sure to shop early--we will be CLOSED on Memorial Day so that our staff can spend the holiday with family and friends.

Inventory Reduction

One of the toughest things about owning a store is knowing how much inventory to purchase. If I don't buy enough, I lose sales. If I buy too much, money is tied up, making it difficult to buy new things. Oh the struggles....Well, I overbought Quickutz dies and they are taking up a lot of space. We just have to move them out, so here is where you win, and I win.All Quickutz dies will go on sale for one week beginning Saturday, May 17 until Saturday, May 24, for 40% off. This includes the 2x2s, 4x4s, Cookie Cutters, Alphabets, and theme sets. It does not include the new 12" border dies, or the Alpha sets that are already reduced. Not only will the dies be on sale, but I am also putting the Squeeze Hand Tool on sale for $59.99. This tool normally sells for $89.99 and comes with an alphabet perfect for your layouts or cards. The alphabets purchased seperately sell for $69.99. Don't want the Squeeze? How about the Revolution for $89.99? The Revolution is a table top die cutting machine that will hold 4x4 dies, as well as 4 2x2 dies. Not to mention the new 12" platform that is capable of cutting border dies up to 12".Have I lost my mind??? Am I going out of business??? Are these bad products??? None of the above... I just need to move out the old to bring in the new. Be sure to stop by and ask for a mini demo of each of these tools. There is so much you can do with them. You don't need electricity, they are very portable to take to crops, and you can even let your kids use them without the fear of cutting themselves. How great is that for them to get school projects done.This sale will only last a week, so be sure to get your dies and tools this week.

Celebrity Guest Designer

Don't forget we have Lisa Falduto, celebrity guest designer for Cosmo Cricket, coming in to teach two more classes in June. Lisa's first two classes were a huge hit and everyone loved what she taught and what they created in her classes.

Her Vacation Mini Album is scheduled for Wednesday, June 11, from 6p-8:30p and the cost is $25. Both of these classes still have a few spots left, so call 845-8859 or stop by the Studio and sign up soon.You can check out the rest of our great classes on our website or stop by and see the samples in person, and grab a paper calendar to keep on your refrig.
