Mark your calender to shop a new batch of deals on the last day of our Holiday sale!
I will find out (and plan to post for you) on SUNDAY what the deals will be. All I know now is that more discounted items will be added to the sale and they will be available for 24 hours...so really that means starting at midnight on Sunday night, right? Probably on Mountain Time, btw...and I know I've mentioned this a few times, but are you getting email notices when I post something new? If not, wouldn't you like that reminder when I post on Sunday, hmmm? 
One other reminder while I'm at it...post a comment on my Holiday Catalog Inspiration page to enter to win a blog candy prize! Post by Dec. 15 - it has to be a comment on that specific page. Not that I don't LOVE comments anywhere on my blog!
Do you LOVE Valentine's Day? Stampin' Up! wants you to be ready so starting on December 1 and ending on January 27 (or while supplies last!!!) there will be new Valentine stamps, printed cards/envelopes, and special embellishments! You can see and download the PDF flyers on my Catalogs and Supplements page (scroll 'til you find the image below - there is lots of product on that page!)

A while ago I saw a cute card embellished with a row of little flags/banners across it. The little banners were cut from a variety of patterned designer papers. It inspired me to use MDS to create my own custom mini banners, and I had so much fun because MDS offered me so many more pattern choices, and allowed me to vary the zoom on each to accommodate each little 1 1/4 x 1/2 inch banner in my rows. My first batch is printed and ready for you to buy for embellishing your own cards and projects!
A 4 1/4" long row (half a full strip) is only a quarter (plus mailing)! You can also buy them in full strips or a page with six strips on it. Trim them as you desire, adhere them to cardstock if you need more body, sponge the edges, stamp or emboss on them, once you have them you can get creative!
Here is a sample of what you will find on my Boutique page:

It has taken me longer than I hoped to get the photos displayed the way I wanted, but there are now more than 30 retired stamp sets (a few rare ones!) on my Boutique page for your shopping fun! They are at the bottom of the page, so scroll down, down, down - and take a look at everything else on the way to them!
Also new in my Boutique are my latest creations, Mini Book-ring Albums. I absolutely love these for writing down special words and thoughts, or you can put a little picture. There are two autumn inspired thankfulness albums, and two for wishes during the winter and holiday season.
I have more designs to come, but you can contact me any time to pre-order or commission a custom theme. I listed a bunch of starter ideas for these albums above the photos. Let me know what you think!
To get to my Boutique page, click the page tab at the top OR the tag in the right column.
Here is a preview of the Mini Albums on my Boutique page:
