News and Events - Big Bargains!!

There is so much happening just now...I just have to let you in on all the latest from my stores.

As I wrote in my previous post, Digital Scrapbooking Studio is going to be a whole new shopping experience, in just a couple of weeks' time.  While we change over to the new software, the store will be 'down' for a minimum of three days.  (Please refer to my previous post for an idea of the timeline for the change to our new look store.)  We are sooo excited about the possibilities that this new software is going to open up for us all - the designers and the customers.  The anticipation is HUGE!

Right now, though, the beginning of April means our Spring Coordinated Collection has been released.  We only have these four times a year, so if you've been waiting for the Spring one to be revealed, it's here!  You have over 140 packs to choose from - all created from the same palette - and just $1.00 per pack!  This is absolutely amazing value.  Of course, this is for a limited time only, so take advantage now, before the shop closes for our 'refit'. These will be back after the new store opens, but at the regular price.


I took a "Cotters Market" theme for mine because where I live we have a Cotters Market in the Mall in the centre of town each Sunday morning.  We also have Night Markets during the cooler months of the year too, that some of the same stall holders sell at.  We love our Markets and the wonderfully unique products that can be bought there.  Local crafts people and artisans have their wares displayed and it would be very rare not to be able to find the perfect gift for someone you need to buy for - or just something that you love, for your own home.  As well as all the beautifully crafted wooden and pottery items, there are numerous jewellery stalls, many with hand strung bead necklaces, bracelets and earrings.  There are hand sewn, knitted or crochet products as well to choose from.  The markets would not be complete without home baked goodies, jams, sweets and preserves as well as locally grown produce, organic fruit, vegetables and honey, flowers and plants.  Yes, we really love our Markets where you find things that are original, fresh and GOOD!  So comes my "Cotters Market" collection.  Just $1 per pack for now.  You'll find this collection here.

Take a look:
Element Pack 1 - 51 elements in this one.

Element Pack 2 - 52 elements in this one.

The Papers - 16 papers.

Solid Textured Papers - 12 papers

Word Art Banners - 14 word art and 1 blank

Okay, enough about "Cotters Market" for now, because I have another store Event to share with you!

Daisies and Dimples are having A HUGH BIRTHDAY PARTY!  Yes, we're celebrating our 4th Birthday with a storewide 45% off SALE, plus an Easter Egg Hop through the store and great Surprise Bags for just $1.99.  Hop along to Daisies and Dimples and join in the Birthday celebrations. 

Last, but not least, I want to let you know that although Nuthouse-Scraps (my third store) has changed ownership, it also is in the process of  'renewal' - new name, new store, new software.  Of course all this takes many many hours of work but it is being worked on at fever pitch.  A 'soft opening' was planned for April 1 but some problems were encountered that have to be resolved.  Look for "Scrapbook Universe" - the new name for our store.  As soon as I have news for you, I will post everywhere - here, on my Facebook Fan Page, twitter, google +, and in my newsletter.  We want you to come and see our new store - it is going to be jaw-dropping AWESOME!!  I can't wait. I'm super excited!

Well that's it for now.  It must be time to go shopping with the super sales and specials happening in my other two stores.  Don't miss out on the savings.
