Big Boxes Coming Soon

So, I'm thinking that after the official closing of Apron Strings on the 30th, and I've fulfilled all the orders during these final days, I'll pull together some Grab Boxes of items.  They'll contain Papers, stickers, lengths of ribbon and embellishments (both packaged and loose - but complete.)  I'm not sure what exactly will be in them until I'm done with shipping out all the orders, but I'm hoping you'll get a few pounds of goodies for a set price, at flat rate mailing; basically, whatever I can fit in a box and I'm a good packer. wink

Watch for an email, hopefully, just a few days into May about these boxes. 

LAST DAY @ Apron Strings

Doors Are Closing April 30th @ Apron Strings

It's time to officially close the doors of Apron Strings.  After 13 years we've reached the end.

If you've been waiting to stock up and save, now's the time to come fill your carts.  After April 30th, Apron Strings will just be a memory.  Don't be the "I should have picked up (fill-in-the-blank) " person.

Come snag all the embellishments, from basic-use-on-all-sorts-of-projects tags, buttons, rhinestones and florals, to things a little more specific like stickers and diecuts.  Just look at their color pallets to pair them up with patterned papers, rather than their theme.

Pick up multiple packs of Paper, especially, if like me, you love both sides of a given patterned paper, or maybe you're looking to create mini albums.  Paper packs are great for making cards and tags - this is a great time to pick up themes - birthday, holidays, seasonal color.  Paper packs are also good for making banners, home decor or table-scapes for special events (ie. birthday party buffets, backyard BBQ's, Mother's Day brunch, or school party decor.)

Finally, snatch and grab all the TV Dinners.  TV Dinners are the thing for creating pages fast - everything is coordinated and ready for your photos and stories.  They are also great for creating mini albums - pair them up with additional paper packs, and maybe a few extra embellishments. 

Come shop for you and anyone who plays with paper.  Enter code:  finaldays at checkout to save a total of 75% on your entire order.

Spring In for Savings

Spring and Winter seem to be playing a cruel game of cat and mouse with most of us here in the States.  We get a few days of warm spring weather and then, bam, winter blows back in to freeze our buds off.  At this rate, we'll go right into Summer, and that will stink as I'm not a fan of the heat.

For now, though I'll enjoy Spring where I find it.  In the bulbs that are sprouting along my front steps, and rethinking doing so, I'm sure.  In the barest buds on the trees.  In the birds that I hear and see busily flitting from tree to tree, who are probably checking their planners and wondering how they got their migration dates wrong.  I'll also find it in the papers I'm using - the bright colorful, floral graphic filled papers that are more consistently Spring than what's going on outside my window.

If you'd like to enjoy Spring the only way that Mother Nature will allow, by scrapping with papers and embellishments - then shop today.  Prices are already down 50%, and the coupon code will save you another 25%, for a walloping 75% on your ENTIRE order!

Pick up papers like American Crafts Daydreamer, their POW Glitter paper (who couldn't use something sparkly that isn't snow), Authentique, Doodlebug, Echo Park, Imaginisce and Pebbles have several bright and happy Spring paper packs.  Cheerful embellishments include:  Dress It Up Glittered Floral Buttons, Favorite Findings Floral Buttons, Heidi Swapp Frames, KaiserCraft Pop Banners, Pebbles Puffy Bumble Bee stickers and any number of neutral, kraft or chalkboard tags, tabs and perky pops of color in a number of alphabet stickers.  If you're looking for something quick, there are a few colorful TV Dinners, too, fully loaded and waiting for you and your photos.

Now go.  Make your own Spring inside, while you wait for the outside to catch-up.
