Free Flower Thank You Printable, 2 Giveaways, Specials and News

Hi Everyone, I've been missing in action but I'm back with a fun 'Free Flower Girl Thank You Printable' and 2 great Giveaway Packs, each for 15 of our Homespun Cotton Scraps. Plus news about our Bellingham, WA pop-up store closing, changes to our copyright, invite to our July Linky Party and more!

I hope you like this card I made from an old Beatrice Mallet postcard I recolored and faux embossed parts of it. For personal use only please. Just left click with your mouse until it's as big as possible and right click to save.
 

 We also have a double Giveaway with 2 chances to WIN ALL15 sheets below of all our Cotton Scraps (including those sold out) as I came across a few extras. Plus the 2 Winners will also receive all of theses in a digital set as well, so they can re-print the images on any medium! The Cotton Scraps that are sold out and now digital are 08 Wedding (I missed adding it below), 09 Fairies, 13 Winter, 14 Cooking and 15 Feathered Friends. We also have a Special Cotton 6 Pack for $6.99.


Since April we've been in a little store in Bellingham, WA and Lyssa (my shipper) was managing the store and had it fixed up so cute and last week we found out we had 1 day to move everything out! Stacia from Red Barn Jewelery who had the lease is about to have her baby any day and found out she couldn't extend her lease. Lyssa was also selling Stacia's beautiful jewelry. Too bad - but I'm Canadian and can't sign a 1 year lease so had to let it go. 


          I'm so sad the store had to close. Many of the items have been moved to the Picket Fence, a consignment store on Front Street in Lynden, WA.  Lyssa will still be filling our USA online orders. 

        
 Our Etsy Store is open but I've changed my Copyright to allow people to create handmade products to sell and I need to update all the digital products with the new copyright and upload them all again. Here's the NEW Copyright information in case anyone is interested in selling handmade products using any of our Digital images. 
 
 Clipper Street is a popular scrapbook store here in Langley BC and they hold a Garage Sale each month with is a big hit with their customers buying and selling items. I've rented 2 parking stalls and will have a huge amount of craft supplies there this Sunday July 12, 10 till 2 pm. Extra items that are easy to ship will be listed in our Etsy Store.


If you want quality resealable clear bags you can hang I have a great deal on packages of 100 bags for $2.95  in our Etsy Store.


I also have other items for sale that are too large to ship but showing in case someone lives near Bellingham, WA or the Vancouver-Surrey area in BC Canada. One of the larger pieces is this antique oak buffet sideboard for $350.00.The hand carving detail is beautiful and the fancy piece over the drawers is a hidden drawer

 

Also, an Oak Draw Leaf Hand Carved Table (opens to 72") with 4 chairs for $450.00. 
Contact me for details if interested.
 

Please go by and check out our July Linky Party and Summer DT Challenge. I HOPE WE GET MORE ENTRIES! There are some free printables if you want to join in (yes- be brave) and post any sample you have created and used a Crafty Secrets product and you could win the $25.00 Gift Certificate! Our DT Ladies have also created some great samples.

I'm trying to get our house ready to list for sale so I will be listing more craft supplies and specials! After 20 years in this house with my business I have a pile of stuff!

I'm sorry you've had to close your store and only 1 day to move, ugh. Thanks for the opportunity to win some of your amazing products.

Brenda G. said...

Those are fantastic! Thanks for the chance to win! :)

Wow--I can't believe you had to move in one day. Thanks for the chance at this fabulous giveaway.

Sorry you had to close your store and with such short notice. Thank you for the chance to win.

Cynthia said...

Sounds like you will be busy, Sandi. Bummer about the store closure. Thanks so much for the chance to win some Cotton Scraps. I love them!

KT Fit Kitty said...

That's too bad about your store - I know you just had it set up and it looked great. They didn't give you much time either. Thank you so much for the awesome giveaway! I would LOVE to have your cotton scraps - they look amazing! Thank you for the free printable girl - so cute! Wishing you all the best with selling your house!

Rebecca Ednie said...

So sorry you lost your location. I wish I was closer as I adore that first piece of furniture. It's gorgeous! Such a generous giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win!

thanks for the freebie and the amazing give-away---love those cotton scraps!

Noreen said...

It's too bad you had to lose your store. Small businesses have a hard time staying alive anymore. I'm glad you can keep your online store.

I so very much love your products. I understand your need to go digital but I just love to stamp and have been trying to buy as clear stamps as I can as well as your paper products-just absolutely love the fabric scraps (which I just ordered 6 more a couple days ago!) Just really need to get my hands and fingernails really dirty (and everything else!) I was so very sorry to hear about your store. It seemed like a real labor of love. It is very difficult to downsize, especially under such a time constraint. No fun putting a house on the market as well!!! I know, I have been in process now for three years. I want to thank you for all of your creative energy - it has made a real difference for me and my "art". A couple years ago we talked on the phone (due to a shipping cost discussion). I mentioned I was still looking for the vintage swimming ladies and the vintage golfer clear stamps even though they were Sold Out. You were so very kind and located one or two still hiding in the warehouse. You got back to me within an hour and left a voice mail. I was soo thrilled to get these sets and have very much enjoyed using them. In fact I made a set of 4 cards with the swimsuit ladies as part of a challenge which were published in a two page layout of the Stampington Take Ten summer issue. Thank you for you inspiration and product line!! Marge

That is a whole lot of changes in a small amount of time-sending good thoughts that it all goes well. I'm a big fan of your cotton scraps-I have some I treasure-would be thrilled to win. Will try to work up the courage to enter the linky challenge.

DolceMc said...

I just received my order of creative scraps and booklets. LOVE, LOVE,
LOVE!!! Beautifully done and someone has a wonderfully wicked sense of humor!
My mind was swimming with ideas on how I wanted to use them. I was so excited that I had to place another order last night!! Within minutes the digital part of my order was up and ready for me to use!
Thank you for helping me with my initial order. You followed up when you discovered a shipping snafoo and promptly corrected it. I will continue to support your business.
Thank you for keeping the human element in your business. I am so glad I found you and look forward to everything your store and blog offers!

Rhjonda Zamora said...

You sure have a lot going on! Stay calm. I hope everything goes well. I really love your products and enjoyed speaking with you at the Great American Scrapbook Convention, in Texas, a few years ago. I loved your booth and always stopped by when you were there. Thanks for a chance to win!

cjgusloff57 said...

Wow! A lot going on for you. Hope everything goes along smoothly. It is a bit of a challenge at times. I do like your products and have a few of them. I would like to join in on the Linky Party, but I do not have a blog so do not know how to go about showing my creation to you.

Marlene F. said...

Hi Sandy, would love to win your products. I went to your shop in Bellingham in June. Have a great summer.

Oh, Sandy. I hate to hear you only had one day to pack up shop...how stressful! I hope everything else you have going on goes a little easier. Thanks for all you do!
