Hello, stampers!  Have you heard the saying ‘It’s all in the presentation”?  Usually people think of it in regards to fancy restaurants – you know, how they give you a tiny portion, but it looks so fancy the way it’s arranged on the plate, you don’t notice?  Or you look at a  special dessert or decorated cake, and say ‘it looks so good, I don’t want to eat it!’

Well, presentation is also important when you’re giving a gift, or packaging something special that you’ve spent a lot of time making!  If you spend a whole weekend making note cards, or hand-made soaps or candles as a gift, do you just toss them into a plastic bag and hand them over?  No!!  You lovingly wrap them in tissue, and find just the perfect box to fit them in.  What if you received a gorgeous piece of jewelry, but it was in a paper bag?  Tiffany doesn’t use those iconic baby-blue boxes for nothing, you know!! 😉

So this week, the Weekly Deals are all about the presentation – the perfect packaging for your special something!

Now for other important news from Stampin’ Up!  regarding the Blendabilities Markers:

Stampin’ Up! has identified a product quality issue with the Blendabilities Markers, so they have ‘turned off’ the ordering numbers for all Blendabilities.  This is because they don’t anticipate a quick resolution to the problem, and they do not want you, our customers, having your order and/or funds tied up in an item that will not be available in a short period of time.  If you have a Blendabilites order that is currently in a ‘backorder’ status, please contact me (debsmart@shaw.ca or 604.298.0472) and have an item(s) that you would like to replace for the Blendabilities.  We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time, and we assure you that your best interest is the focus, as we only want to provide you with quality, reliable products.

If you would like to order any of the products above, or have any questions, please give me a call or send me an email.  I’m always happy to help!

Until next time – happy stamping!

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to stamp and create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a 3D item, or a card, or scrapbook page - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you stamp and create with me! :)

I love to read what you have to say! Thanks for commenting ;)
