November 2012 Newsletter

Holiday time is in full swing-

It is unbelievable that the holiday season is right around the corner.  Everyone seems to be getting ready for Holiday cards, gifts and craft fairs.  We have a huge selection of Holiday papers in stock that are fit for your crafting needs.

We also have a great selection of die cuts, stamps, and laser cut words that will help you with all your projects.

Island Scrapbooking Reusable Bags

We are trying to stay ahead of the game as new laws about plastic bag use are going into effect in January.  We are trying to encourage everyone to get into the habit of bringing their own bags starting now.  We do have a limited supply of our own personalized “Island Scrapbooking” reusable bags for sale for just $1.00 each.  Some of our customers have been kind enough to bring back the plastic bags, we currently use, for us to use again.  We will still kindly accept any of our plastic bags you can bring in to recycle as we are still allowed to use plastic for a couple more months.  We are grateful to those who do recycle an appreciate your participation in this new environmentally friendly direction.
