Holiday Product Suite Convention Pics!!

I thought I would share a few pics from Convention this year. A few of them even give you a sneak peek of how much you are going to LOVE the new Holiday Mini that is set to launch on Sept. 1st!!

Sneak Peek of the Holiday Mini!! This picture features the new Holly Berry Bouquet Product Suite. Poinsettias, Pinecones, and Holly Berries on this specialty paper will make your Holidays beautiful and elegant. Also take a look at that adorable stocking garland. Those were created using a new die for the Sizzix Big Shot cutting machine!! You guessed it~that it a must have of mine!!

Take a look at the gift wrap (Yep, Santa's elves have been busy with the Designer Series Paper!) & look at that adorable santa list! I couldn't help but wonder if my daughter's name is on that list!! Haha!! I definitely think the Postage Stamp Punch is a must have this Holiday season. Especially for envelopes. No wonder why this Product Suite is called Letters to Santa!

This Halloween collection is from the Pick Your Poison Product Suite & is featured in the new Holiday Mini! Look at the quick & creepy self-adhesive accents found on the bottles of poison! You can decorate your own apothecary jars!! The matching Designer Series Paper has creepy images that crawl all over the paper, giving your Halloween projects just the right sinister look!

Another Frightful Sight~ of a Product Suite that is!! That Scaredy Cat Decor Element is purrfect don't ya think?! I spy some other things from the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog. What else do you see??

Fabric is featured on page 196 of the catalog. The fabric share includes 9 (9"x 9" squares of fabric) which is a segment of each of the new 9 prints- 3 prints in each of the 3 different assortments.

To order each of these things individually would cost $35.47, purchase the share for just $7.00!

NEW 2011 RIBBON SHARES - 5 people needed per share

All ribbon shares contain 2 yards each of the new ribbon in it's category (if the ribbon is a carryover from the last catalog it is not included in the share) featured on pages 194-195 of the NEW 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog.

There aren't a ton of new colors of the 1/8" Taffeta ribbon-but this delicate ribbon isn't anything you want to miss!

So this share will combine the two ribbons and includes a total of 8 yards of ribbon (2 each of 4 types). To purchase all of these ribbons individually would cost $ $30.65, purchase a share for just $6.50!

5/8" Satin and 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon Share:

These two ribbons are like the above grouping- important and much needed, even though there is not as wide of an assortment as others, so they are being combined! This share includes 14 yards of ribbon (2 each of 7 types). To purchase all of these ribbons individually would cost $55.43, purchase a share for just $8.25!

Please email me to let me know which shares you are interested in participating. I will keep track and when a share fills, I will send you a paypal invoice and then order, cut, wrap and package the shares. I can also accept check, MO, or cash (for local residents only). Please Note: items ship once your payment has been received.

Important Ordering Information:

Orders for shares will be sent out as they fill. For example, most all ribbon shares offered are an even distribution among 5 people, ao as soon as 5 people order, the ribbon will then be ordered. Please keep in mind that it is a process for me to collect orders, place orders, get the orderes in, then cut and divide everything appropriately before mailing. I will move as quickly as I can, but it can take a couple of weeks for you to receive your orders. Thank you in advance for your patience!!

SHIPPING INFORMATION - Sorry, but all shares will ship to US addresses only!
All Designer Paper Shares will ship USPS Priority Mail due to the weight.
Ribbon Shares will go USPS First Class unless you order multiples and I will stuff as many as I can into a Priority Envelope. Prices posted above do not include shipping.
