 Another WOW Deal:

If you are into digital crafting or think you’d like to give it a try Stampin’ Up has an offer too good to pass up.

Purchase My Digital Studio Express Version and get one of three bundles worth up to $40 for free!   Basically that’s the same as 50% off the regular 2 disk version since one of the bundle choices is the booster pack that adds back in all the files found in the two disk version and stripped from the Express version. 

Here’s a flyer detailing the free bundles:

If you order the software you’ll need to do so online through my online store  so that you can access the download links as soon as you pay for the program.   As part of the order process you’ll be prompted to input your choice of bundle the flyer shows the bundle order number at the top of the page showing the pictured contents.

The rest of the offerings run the gamut from Big Shot to digital downloads to accessories to stamps!

Just in time for Christmas and Valentines the Glimmer Brad bundle will add shine to your projects and lighten the load on your wallet!    And the fabrics…with 50-60% off you can’t go wrong planning holiday projects.  Check yesterdays post for ideas on using it.

The stamps…wow…the stamps.   Not only are some old favorites included but there is even a brand new set…The Occasions Alphabet…Have you seen this beauty.  It covers every event and occasion you could possibly need with text as well as letters.   And now…its 50% off!   I love when the alphabets go on sale.

Now 50% off your choice of clear mount or wood!


Other classic stamp sets like Winter Post and Many, Merry Messages are also on that 50% off list.

The Big Shot is well represented with the Candy Wrapper die…perfect for making your own crackers (tubes with hidden surprises and noise makers popular in Europe) as well as other gifty items and stocking stuffers.   There is also a Happy Birthday strip die.   For my uplines Birthday I cranked one of these out dusted it with dots of dazzling diamonds and rhinestones and attached it to some bamboo skewers to top her birthday cake.  A fun 5 minute project with lots of dazzle and shine.  And….

Did you see that my beloved Letterpress Plates are also 50% off?   To see what you can do with these lovelies check out my post here and here.

So much good product and I’ve only touched on a few.   Grab the flyer, visit my online store and grab some goodness for yourself.   Hee, hee…not promising there won’t be any backorders after I place my own order!   Which reminds me…while this is an online extravaganza…all but the digital products can also be ordered at workshops or emailed to me for regular ordering through November 30th.    

What do you bet Santa will be shopping the Extravaganza too.   If you think he needs help I’ll be happy to provide gift certificates and Wish Lists for his many helpers.  You can email me at jlfstudio@live.com  for details and samples.

Time to get back to my cocoa as Jack Frost is nipping at my nose as I sit here typing.  Winter is in the air for sure…can snow be far behind?

Hugs and blessings and happy savings during the Extravaganza! – Jean


Online Extravaganza…Fabric anyone?

Have you heard yet about the ….

One of the special deals is on select designer fabrics.   How big a deal?   Well does this give you any idea….

At 60% off select designer fabric sets here’s the break down:

Each fabric packet (think fat quarters only bigger) contains 3 pieces or fat quarters of 27″ x 18″ for $9.95

Less 60% that $9.95 becomes $3.98!   Now can you see why I’m jumping for joy!  That’s 1458 square inches of very cool fabric for $3.98!

And if you are a demo or join my team during the sale…are you ready for this… you get another 20% off that 60% off!  So your fabric would run you $3.18!    And…you’ll be getting that extra 20% off everything you order from the various catalogs the entire time you are a demo!   Not too many companies give their sales force discounts on top of discounts let me tell you – but Stampin’ Up does!

So now my fellow frugalistas…you have your fabric (at this price why wouldn’t you try it).  What are you going to do with it?   You just knew I was leading up to this didn’t you…hee,hee.

Whether you sew or you don’t there are any number of wonderful things to do with fabric.   And if you have a Big Shot and our steel rule dies you have even more options since you can use our wonderful fabric adhesive sheets to create your very own designer iron on fabric appliques.   Die cut with the multipurpose adhesive sheets (peel and press – no ironing needed) you can create fabric die cut stickers for cards and scrapbooks or any altered object.
