Tips & Techniques Tuesday - March 24, 2015 - Glue Dots

Today on Tips & Techniques Tuesday we are stepping back to some basics.

I have been doing a few workshops with new stampers and so have been using glue dots on my Make and Takes. I realize that it is a basic skill on how to use them and some of the folks were not crafters so I had to show them how to use the glue dots I so love.


Glue Dots        103683
Price: $4.95
Instant dots of adhesive. No fumes, no mess, no drying time. Holds heavier embellishments. 300 dots: ea. 3/16" diameter.

So today I made a quick video on how to use Glue Dots for all my new Crafters.


Sometimes we just have to get back to the basics.

Grandma's Rocking Chair - March 22, 2015 - Clearance rack

Grandma's Rocking Chair - Tonight I would like to talk about Stampin' Up!'s Clearance Rack.

I have had some folks that wanted to know about the Clearance Rack and what is it all about.

Stampin' Up! has a section on their On-line store that is called a Clearance Section Click Here to see it.

So what is in it and how does it work?

Well you can see that most of it is retired items. Though toward the end of the Holiday Catalog they put some of the Holiday items on the clearance rack for a discount.

They are also adding some stamp sets but since they make their own stamp sets I think this is one thing that they won't have a lot of so they may go fast.



Price: $17.95 $12.59

Wouldn't it be great if you could find sentiments for all the year-end holidays in one set? Well, your wait is over. Create projects all season long with this set of 5 stamps.

This is just one of the Stamp Sets that are available right now.  

Also things are just available while supplies last.  So they encourage you to place an online order. Though you can have me order for you on either a customer order or a Workshop order but the item may not be available when I finalize the orders.  

I like to use the Clearance rack to round out an order I place especially now during Sale-A-Bration and need to hit that magic $50.

When do they add items.  They are adding items all the time. If they are going to add a lot or do like they did for the Holiday Catalog they usually give us Demos a heads up so we can tell you all that it is coming.

So let's take a peek at what is on the Clearance rack right now.  Here are a few of the items
Price: $4.95 $1.99
Frame stamped images, or use alone. 36 pieces: 6 ea. of 6 designs.

Price: $24.95 $9.99
You know you want to impress the neighbors with your Christmas card this year. With this kit and a few stamps, you'll be ready to go. Kit makes 20 cards and includes card bases, envelopes, die-cut letters and shapes, linen thread and accents.


Price: $7.95 $4.79
Add a forest of depth to your holiday projects with this folder. Folder size: 4-1/2" x 6-3/16". Use with Texture Boutique or Big Shot and Standard Cutting Pads.

Price: $10.95 $4.39
Versatile colors and patterns will give you endless options for creativity. Coodinating colors: Basic Gray, Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Real Red, So Saffron, Whisper White

* 12 sheets, 2 each of 6 double-sided designs
* 12" x 12
* Acid free, lignin-free

That was a small taste of the 50 items that are on the clearance rack right now.
Now is a great time to order those clearance rack items during Sale-A-bration.
