New Classes and the December SOTM

We have a couple of new classes for you in January! My Favorite Things is a new company to Stamper’s Alley and they have such adorable images and their Die-namics dies are really wonderful. Their cards feature the perfect combination of stamps and die cuts along with simple, but striking, coloring and design. These cards could be adapted for many different occasions just by changing the sentiment.

Karen will be the instructor for this class in the morning (9:30am):

Small Business Saturday Sale!

If you aren’t all shopped out from Black Friday, join us tomorrow for another sale, in honor of Small Business Saturday. Put your shopping shoes on, treat yourself to a Starbucks one-shot, skim milk, no whipped cream caramel mocha macchiato somethingorother and come on down!

November 26th, the day after Black Friday, is the Second Annual Small Business Saturday…a day when we all "shop small", coming together to celebrate America's small businesses.

Tomorrow only, all in-stock JustRite and Hero Arts products are on sale for…… 40% off! We will be open from 10am - 4pm and we suggest getting there early. We had quite a crowd today - thank you all for supporting your local stamp store, Stamper’s Alley.

There are some Hero Arts stamps that are already marked down 60%, so those are exempt from this sale, of course. That still leaves a whole lot of Hero Arts stamps, ink, embellishments and even paper, to choose from. There are a whole bunch of Just Rite stamps in stock, too, along with the stampers for the grid stamps. This is a good time to save on a little holiday shopping for your stamping friends, and pick up a few gifts for yourself, too.

See you tomorrow!

We just wanted to wish each and every one of you a very Happy Thanksgiving and let you know how grateful we are for you.

We also wanted to let you know that Dave Brethauer of Memory Box has posted some videos on his blog using the Memory Box dies in several different ways and making really pretty cards with them.

Here is the link to Dave’s blog:

While the guys are watching football tomorrow, let the kitchen cleanup wait and have a peek at some interesting ideas from Memory Box.

Remember, the Memory Box dies, as well as all of the other dies, will be on sale this Friday, but only from 10am to noon.

ATTENTION SHOPPERS!

Stamper’s Alley has decided to participate in the uniquely American sport of shop-till-you-drop Black Friday this year. We will NOT, however, be opening at midnight.

Why should you shop with us on Black Friday, you may ask. Well, since Friday is the 25th how about 25% off of your entire purchase? Yes, I said 25% off of your entire purchase** - no coupon needed. That’s a pretty good reason, if you ask me!

Need more of a reason? We can help you with that. How about some specials during the day? Here you go:

10am - Noon - All Dies - 40% off

Noon - 2pm - All Copic Markers - 35% off

2pm - 5pm - All 12 x 12 patterned paper - 40% off

See you Friday!

** The 25% discount will only be applied to regular price, in stock items and cannot be applied to gift certificates, special orders, class fees, or combined with any other discounts or offers.
