Deals of the Week

Hello Friends,

Recently, Stampin' Up! started a great thing - DEALS OF THE WEEK -
Who doesn't like a great deal? This week, the specials are 3 punches. Punches are a fabulous way to create wonderful projects, including cards and scrapbook pages. Normally priced at $15.95 each, you can save 25% off each one.  Price will be $10.99 for this week. The My Way punch (3rd across) will be $11.99.

Punch tip: To keep all your punches in great condition, you can alternate punching through waxed paper (to keep them sliding through material well) and punching through soda pop aluminum cans (to keep them sharp). Cut the ends off the cans (carefully so as not to cut yourself) and cut down one side to open up the material. Then punch or run the sheet of aluminum though your big shot dies and you’ll have a fun colorful shape to add to your projects as well as keep your cutting tools nice and sharp. The nice thing about the aluminum cut pieces is that once punched they are no longer too sharp to use safely.. Our craft scissors do a terrific job on the cutting down the side.

Punch tip #2: When your new punches arrive take some old copy or junk mail paper and punch several times to make sure you have any machine oil from the manufacturing and storage process out of the punch so you don’t stain your nice Stampin’ Up papers. If for some reason your punch is a bit sticky you can stick it in the freezer for a short time remove and let thaw and this should take care of the problem.

Go to and place your online order not forgetting to check out the Clearance Rack.  You can also e-mail your order to me at

Happy Stampin'
