We're Started our "SPRING CLEANING" Sale Event

Spring is on it's way...
And, so it's time to clean out the "old" and get ready for the "new".

All of our rolled stickers are being clearance priced by the entire roll and you won't believe the prices.

You can get the whole roll for practically the price of one sticker!

This is a great opportunity for teachers to stock up on stickers for their class. - OR - Anyone who wants a bargain (and who doesn't now-a-days) should stop in and see how low they've been marked down.

(Suzy Zoo not included)

It was just announced today that Luminarte, Inc. is going out of business. This wonderful company that makes Twinkling H2o's, RadiantRain Mists, Radiant Daubers, Polished Pigments, and Simple Solutions will no longer be producing them.
If you are a fan of any of these great stamping products, stock up before they are gone forever.
Starting Saturday, Feb 14th, our existing stock is going on sale for 50% off.
If there is something you want to have or replace in your collection, that we don't have on our sales floor, please contact us. We can order them for you at the same 50% off from Luminarte, Inc. while they still have them in stock.
Leslie Ohnstad from Luminarte, Inc, just wrote us this message:
Luminarte has had such a wonderful time with you. Your fantastic ideas, artwork, continued appreciation......we will miss you terribly! We hope you will continue using color to express yourself. Keep your spirits up and create, create, create..........
We are passing along her comments to all of you who have taken classes from Peggy Budfulowski, and all of you who loved using all the Luminarte products.

Grungepaper (12x12) shipping late MAR 2009

The new Tim Holtz Idea-ology products from Advantus should be shipping late March.
One of the hottest new items is Grungepaper. It comes 3 per package 12"x12" size sheets for $5.99.
Although we placed a big order for all the newest Idea-ology items, if you "gotta have" the Grungepaper, give us a call and pre-order it to assure you will have it in your hands as soon as it arrives.
We've already received quite a few calls from our customers who also "gotta have" Grungeboard, so we think it's going to sell out very quickly.

MTM Papercraft WILL BE CLOSED on FEB. 15th

Please Make a note...........

MTM Papercraft will be closed for one day, on Sunday, Feb. 15th; because Designed by You Invitations will be attending the Bridal Sampler Expo in Skokie, Il.
