Vintage Set returns for Feb 1 - 28 only

What a cutie this set is - you can just feel the "joy" in this vintage set called Sealed with a Kiss! Retail price $21.95, available during February only for special price of $16.50. After Feb. 28, it will be gone to the archives again! Get it while you can!

Limited Edition Set available Feb - Mar 13 only

This blissful stamp set is available for a limited time in a special miniature version (it matches wedding day T-2675 on page 25 of the Fall & Winter Core catalogue). This limited Edition Set is only available Feb 2 through March 13, 2009 with a qualifying purchase of $30. Retail value $6.95, now available at special price $5.25!

Another new stamp set from Serendipity

Here is another new stamp set in the Serendipity magazine that I think has some endless possibilities. I can't wait to own this one too!

Here is a sample from the Mimi sample board of a card created using edge designs T-3002 which retails for $21.95. The house in the picture is from Welcome Home T-2982 $7.95 in Fall and Winter catalogue (core book) Not sure who the designer is, or I would give credit to the talented Angel.

I am working on all of the photos that I took at Winter Escape so that I can run them as a slide show for everyone to see at TECH - four paper collections were featured with the new stamp sets - Mimi (p. 46), Mia's Cottage (p. 62), Angelee (p. 50) Lilly Anna (p. 58). These Soar with it Collections can be ordered from the F&W core catalogue for $6.95 per set.

February TECH Squad - meets Wed., Feb 11

Our February TECH Squad meeting will be on Wednesday, February 11 at 2:00 p.m. or 5:30 p.m. We will be doing 4 Valentine projects that I hope you will enjoy! I finished the design process today, and will be busy in the next couple of days creating the kits for everyone!

Here's a "sneak peek" at one of the projects!

New feature in our Serendipity magalogue

A new feature which is printed in the Serendipity is a "recipe" for every sample listing all the TAC products used to make the sample. I think this will be most helpful to those who want to re-create the beautiful samples that are featured in the magazine!

Here is another beautiful page from the Serendipity - stay tuned, I'll post one page a day until you have seen the entire magazine!

Top - on the beach %-3070 $12.95 (7 stamps)

TECH project for Wednesday

Thought you might like to see what we are doing on Wednesday at TECH Squad - I finally got a sample made, and kits produced.

The stamp set is sprigs T2676 retail $10.95 but from now until January 26 all T-coded stamps are 50% off, making this 4 stamp set on $5.48. Quite a bargain, and very versatile.

I had some scraps left so I made a "thank you" card using sprigs and the "Thank you" that is a Gift With Purchase stamp in our current catalogue! Check it out -

If you can't make it to TECH Squad, but would like to take advantage of the spec-TAC-ular stamp set, just call me or e-mail me your order! The TECH order will be placed on Thursday morning!

See you soon! poki

There will be an enhanced Spring Supplement coming out on February 1. Angels got a "sneak peek" of some of the new sets - for you butterfly lovers, check this out:
