New S&H Special, Recipe Projects, Blessings Card by Linda, 2012 Shows!

Hi Everyone,  The shipping charges in our Shopatron Online Store were a little wonky but I'm happy to report they are fixed and we just started a New Free Shipping Deal with all orders over $75.00! It's normally $4.95 S&H in a priority envelope - so if you were over charged please contact us but I think Denisa caught and fixed most.

Of course we will still include a gift with each order and our shipper picks what fits best and gifts are determined by order size. The bigger the order - the better the gift! It may be a sheet of Vintage Cuts, Stickers, Creative Scraps, an Image Booklet or Clear Art Stamps.

We've had many international inquiries lately and we can't process them through the online store but international customers can email orders to  and our office can confirm the S&H (priority envelope $15.50 or Box 45.00) and send a Paypal invoice.

I got crafty and decorated a wood recipe box I found at the dollar store with a bit of red paint, our Domestic Goddess Scraps and the border stamp from Kitchen Classics Set.

I used the inside of the Domestic Goddess Scraps and simply traced the box sections and attached them with white Glue as I'm out of Modge Podge.  I sprayed the balls with Krylon Matt Spray and need to spray the box but I wanted to wait a day (just to be sure the ink is set).
I painted some wood knobs for the feet and top but you could use bottle caps, wood spools, big buttons, stacked scrabble tiles, dominos, or ... think recycle for other ideas. Bamboo skewers in a vase worked best for holding the balls to paint and dry.

I haven't made recipe cards yet, so I'm cheating and showing you the cute ones Vicki typed out and stamped using our Sweet Stuff Stamp Set. You can click on the page below to make it big. The album she used is a 5 x 7" Maya Road Binder Album but other size albums would work.    All of the other paper used in album (besides the Domestic Scraps) is from our CD # 1Creating With Vintage Patterns

We are going to include some white lined school style paper on CD 3 so you can type out recipes and print them on cardstock with the lines.  It may not line up perfectly but it looks cute and better than plain. That's why I love the CD's, you can print on any medium like cardstock, vellum, fabric, sticker paper, etc. Sorry, we also just sold out of the 2" Jumbo Bottle Caps we recently got in and are waiting for a new shipment if you are looking at the cute kitchen magnets on the sheet below.

Look at this stunning card Linda Duke designed using an image from our Little Blessings Scraps with Spellbinders dies. Her pink bow and pin add the perfect finishing touch.You can see and read all the details here on Linda's Blog.

 Did you see the pretty Photo Mat Vicki altered with our Love Mail Scraps and the new Mini Chipboard Frames?
