Want a discount for tickets for CHA Craft SuperShow (for Consumers) in Anaheim, CA- Jan 22 & 23, 2010?


In addition to the regular Retail Winter CHA (Craft & Hobby Association) show this year, CHA is also hosting a Craft SuperShow, which is for Consumers/Crafters.  It's also at the Anaheim Convention Center (directly across from Disneyland!!).  The dates for the Consumer Craft SuperShow are Friday, January 22 & Saturday, January 23, 2010. It is open to anyone who purchases tickets!!

If you want to go to the (Consumer) Craft SuperShow & would like to get a discount on the purchase price of your tickets, feel free to use this code (from my site) : CRAFT54.

All the information about this show can be found following the link shown in the ad above: http://www.craftsupershow.com/

I hear there's a lot of folks from the Cricut Message Board that are going to the Craft SuperShow & then meeting up on Saturday evening over at Bubba Gumps (across the street in Downtown Disney).  If you want to meet up with all of us crazy Cricut people, go onto the Cricut MB & send a PM to ScrappinKittyRN, who is organizing this dinner event!!  Hope to see you there!!!!

***FYI---Please be aware, there has been some confusion about the two separate & distinct upcoming CHA Shows. Purchasing tickets to the CHA Craft SuperShow admits you to the Consumer CHA show only!!! It will NOT admit you to to regular Retailer/Manufacturer Convention, which begins AFTER the Consumer show is over!! In order to be admitted to the Retail CHA Conference, you MUST have a valid Badge, only available to those who are registered members in good standing of CHA (retailers, manufacturers & designers) & their employees.

What a shocker-- I'm actually taking a "Mini Vacation"!! My Mom is forcing me into it!

OK, please--no fainting or applause---, but guess what??  I'm actually out of town as I write this, taking a "Mini Vacation" with my lovely 81-year old Mom, who is visitng from Omaha!!!  Mom decided that I HAD to have a couple days off, after the all the tough things that have been going on in my life & she decided the ONLY way to ensure that would happen is to physically drag me out of town--(even though I'm sooooo sick!!).  What can I do--would YOU be able to say no & disappoint your 81-year old Mom???  Well, I couldn't, so here we are. (The other alternative was to take one of those 3 day cruises out of LA & there was NO way I was up to that right now, so this was a good compromise!!)

We're in San Diego for a few days.  It's the perfect destination spot because it's actually close enough to drive, but just far enough away from home, so I can't run back and forth, or work around the clock (as usual) !!  Thank goodness I didn't have to drive any long distance to get here, or we wouldn't have made it (OMG, I HATE to drive!)!! I did bring my laptop, but I'll likely only be checking mail once a day!!

So please be prepared, because I'll likely only be responding to emails once a day as well!!

I'll be returning to work on Thursday morning, 12/3/09. Any invoices paid, or purchases made using the BUY NOW Buttons before I return should get shipped out to you on Thursday!!

Have a great week!!

Update to this post:  Well, my luck--I got even sicker while on vacation & developed bronchitis, which has now turned into walking pneumonia.  I swear to God, I'm so unlucky--I think I'm the only person I know who gets punished for actually taking a couple days off, LOL!!! (rolling my eyes heavenward!!)

For EVERY order placed with me containing these new releases, your name will go in a hat for one of three give-aways!!  I'll be giving away:

1) A set of the brand new Cuttlebug Winter folders which were just revealed on HSN this morning--and two of those folders are EXCLUSIVE to HSN, so you can't get them anywhere else right now, so of course, I ordered an extra set of them just for my Blog Candy!!! (And they are beautiful!!) 

2) I will also be giving away a set of JustRite stamps!!! 

3) And if that wasn't enough, I will also be giving away a set of Spellbinder's dies--a Pendant & its matching Borderabilities die!! Which set??  That's a secret!!!

JustRite Stamps-New Releases-November 2009-with Pictures & all ordering info for November Releases



Here's the information I promised regarding the new releases.  First, let me show you the new releases from JustRite Stampers.  There's LOTS of excitement surrounding this release!!  Besides a lot of darling new Borders, Centers & great Kits, they're also introducing a brand new shape to their product line & that is the SQUARES!!!

For those not familiar with the JustRite Stampers, they have a very unique concept in their  "Design -It Yourself" stamping system.  Their wood stampers with their interlocking ribbed grid surface allow you to design your own stamps, choosing from a fabulous selection of interchangeable borders, centers, fonts & now, even frames!!  Each stamp securely locks into place in the grid system which ensures amazingly precise stamping!!  And because you can mix & match, you then can basically CUSTOM DESIGN your VERY OWN stamps with your own personalized greetings, along with your choice of borders, frames, centers, etc.!!  ***Just THINK of the possibilities, especially with the holidays coming up!!! Ohhhh, it's all sooooo exciting, sometimes I can hardly stand it!!!!

And because they're all designed to fit into a basic, geometric shape, you can cut out all your shapes using your Cricut cartridges, (maybe with your new Cricut Gypsy!!), & of course your Spellbinders dies work perfectly, or other manufacturer's dies!!   Easy Peasy!!!

Alrighty now, are you ready?? Without further ado, here's the newest releases from JustRite Stampers:

OK, sooooo, now that you've seen them, how can you resist them???  The new releases are available right now for pre-order, with all items expected to be shipped to the retailers (that would be me!!) sometime in November, except for the last one in the list, the Special Occasions Monogram Kit (JB-08335), which is scheduled to ship in December.  


When I spoke to the manufacturer, JustRite Stampers, they said they're expecting a very large volume of orders for these new releases, so, let's get YOUR pre-orders into them ASAP, so we get ourselves stacked up at the front of that line, & we get  the earliest shipping possible!!

Are you ready?? Then let the pre-ordering begin!!!  To place your pre-orders, just email me the list of items that you want, along with your ZIP CODE.  Please put the words "JUSTRITE NOV PRE-ORDERS" in your email subject line.  My email is: glendascreativeplace@yahoo.com . I will then send you your PayPal invoice!!  BTW, if there are other JustRite items (or any of the other products I carry!!) that you also want to order, you can certainly include them all on one order & I will discount your shipping just as if they were all going to ship together (even though the pre-ordered items will ship out separately!!).

Also, I just received a little shipment of the highly coveted Tim Holtz new, gorgeous Rock Candy Stickles & instead of selling them outright, I will include a bottle with every pre-order placed for the new JustRite Releases!!! These new Stickles have a clear, glitter-like appearance & are absolutely perfect for your holiday cards and layouts!!

I also want to give all my customers a "heads-up" & a warning about JustRite's collections of holiday stamps. They've already completely sold out of their darling Halloween set, which was a limited edition & they're not having any more manufactured at this time.  They've warned us to hurry up & order whatever other holiday/limited edition sets we think we're going to need, because they anticipate more sell-outs of those.  What I've learned about this company is that when something is gone, it is really gone with them!! So if any of you are still waiting to order any of JustRite's Christmas/holiday/limited edition sets,  PLEASE do NOT wait any longer.  Let me know which sets you want (and be sure you also get your wooden stampers or the self-inking monogram stampers to fit whatever stamp sets you're ordering!!).  (See my post from Sept. 11th for all the holiday releases here: http://www.glendascreativeplace.com/2009/09/big-announcment-im-newest-retailer-for.html )

One last thing about the JustRite Stampers:  Please remember that for those projects you're planning to produce repeatedly, such as holiday cards, or gift sets, there are some great options to help you get it done quickly.  First, there are the self-inking mongram stampers (1-5/8" round), that allow for really fast, repetitive stamping.  If you're using other sizes (other than the 1-5/8"), you can always order extra wooden stampers in the size you need.  This allows you to set up your project on the extra stamper & leave it on there, until you're good & ready to remove it, even if you still need to use other stamps in that size!! That way you'll always have a free & readily available stamper. Since the JustRite sets really lend themselves to the creation of your own customized stamps, once you take the time to design & set up your custom stamp, I don't know about you, but I'd be in no hurry to disassemble it!!!

Here's the information about the Monogram Self-Inker:

This self inking kit comes with a 1-color reversible ink pad, 4 borders & centers, Large & Medium Letter Set- Times Roman font- 78 characters!
***Limited Time Offer--Bonus 2-Color Reversible Dry Ink Pad.
MSRP: $39.95
Glenda's Regular Price: $33.95, but MY Special Sale Price is: $29.95!!!

OK, get your lists together & email them over to me ASAP to glendascreativeplace@yahoo.com !!  Don't forget to also send me your zip code.  I can't WAIT to see what all my incredibly creative customers are going to make with all these new releases!!!  Let's get started!!

Next time--the new Spellbinders  releases!! (CLICK HERE to go to the post showing the new Spellbinder's releases!!)

Oct 21, 2009

Oh WOWEE!!!! New Releases from JustRite Stamps & Spellbinders both!!! I'm SOOOOOO Excited!!!

Wow--Does it get better than this??  Brand new releases from 2 of my very favorite companies!!! JustRite Stamps has just released several new sets of stamps,  including the long awaited square shapes, plus several new kits, along with new sets of Borders & Centers--and they are all GORGEOUS!!!  And of course, they're made to coordinate perfectly with the Spellbinders basic shapes dies, so the new squares will fit perfectly into a Spellbinders Square die!!  They also work & fit beautifully into any of the basic shapes you can cut with your Cricut or Expression machines.  And if you happen to be a new Gypsy owner, it can't get much easier than putting a basic shape, such as a circle, square, oval, etc. onto your Gypsy mat, then re-sizing it it to the exact size you want & cutting it out with your machine!!!  (Of course, you can also do the same thing with the Cricut Design Studio software, or by simply using the Real Dial Size on your machine itself!)

And as if it couldn't get any better, Spellbinders has also put together some new releases of three new Nestabilities sets, including Nest-08 which includes all 4 sets of the Octagons in it, then there's Nest-09 which has bundled 4 different sets of their most popular Flowers dies, including Blossom 1, Blossom 2, Peony & the gorgeous Dahlia.  Last but certainly not least is Nest-10 in which they have compiled 4 of the most popular Labels sets!!

I am taking orders for all these new products right now.  Some are rumored to be limited, so please, let me know right away if you want any of these. 

I also just re-stocked all of my holiday sets from JustRite Stamps, after learning that the darling Halloween set, "Witch Way to the Treats" (which was a limited edition!) sold completely out a couple weeks ago & there's no way to re-order any more!!!  In all fairness, the manufacturer DID forewarn us that we needed to stock up early on all of the limited edition sets, because once they're gone, they are really gone!!  So be sure to let me know right away if you want any of the Christmas or other holiday sets!!

The same applies to the limited edition Spellbinders dies (which include MANY of their beautiful holiday dies!!).  Spellbinders has once again sent us an email warning us that we need to stock up now, while they're still available, because there are currently no plans to re-manufacture the limited editions when they're gone!!

I will be posting all the photos & my prices ASAP, but in the meantime, you can always glance at my pricing for similar items now to get a good idea of what I'll be charging (and you all KNOW I always try to have great prices for you!!)--and of course, I always freely disclose all my prices, so feel feel to contact me if you need pricing before I manage to get them loaded into my site!!

I am soooo stinkin' excited about these new products, I can hardly stand it!! I honestly expected that we'd have to wait until CHA rolled around in January to see any really cute new releases from most of the manufacturers, and then voilĂ , here came these new releases almost back to back from 2 of the hottest companies out there!!!  I just can't WAIT to get my hands on ALL of them, LOL!!!

So be sure to let me know about your interest in any of these new products right away and keep a look out here for the photos, details and of course, the prices!!  Be sure to email me for any questions at glendascreativeplace@yahoo.com (and try to put "NEW RELEASES" in your email subject line!!).

Ohhhhh, these are all SOOOOO cool & soooooo cute, you all are going to absolutely LOVE them!!!  This is going to be a whole lot of fun!!!  I can't WAIT!!!!

Looking forward to hearing from you!!!

Sep 27, 2009

**UPDATE** --The News is GOOD and I am over whelmingly grateful to each of you!!

*******UPDATE*********
OK, here I am, after literally crashing (finally) from exhaustion. Let me first say, the news is GOOD!!!

But let me start by saying how overwhelmingly grateful I am to have seen all your amazingly beautiful comments. Several times now, I've read thru each & every one of them, and all of the PMs & emails I received & I have to say, I never expected to be the recipient of such open-hearted kindness. No WONDER things have turned well & no WONDER why I constantly feel so privileged to be a part of our community here, even after ALL these years (since 2006!!). I don't think there's any way for me to express what every one of your messages have meant to me. I honestly don't know why I'm surprised, since I know from personal experience the incredible people who make up this community, but I somehow never feel worthy, nor expect the immense kindness to be directed my way. But believe me, I felt all of you with me as I waited for the final results.

And the news is GOOD--no cancer right now--just a large abscess, which they've elected to first treat with a course of serious antibiotics (yeast infection likely included, LOL!!). I was surprised they didn't want to go in & start digging right away, but I'm very lucky in that my hospital is one of only seven specialized "Breast Centers" in the entire country, which means they're on the cutting edge of everything & they told me if they can take care of it with medication, that's the preference, rather than opening anything up right now. Obviously, if after a few weeks, when they do another ultrasound, the meds haven't cleared it all up, they'll then look at the next step, but for now, I'm thinking positively that the meds WILL take care of it!! And as far as the breast pain I've been experiencing, hopefully it can all be attributed to the abscess, but I was also told that breast pain is often just one of those medical "mysteries", that have had books & more books written about it & sometimes, there's just no good explanation for it.

I was poked & prodded over & over again on Friday (and squished  & squished some more, if you know what I mean!!) during my extensive mammogram & then again during the ultrasound. And it was quite unnerving when the radiology person stepped out to go get "the big doctor" after she'd done the ultrasound, & had him come in & do it all over again (and let me say, he was MUCH less gentle!!)!! But I know they were just trying to be cautious, & for that, I am grateful!!!

When I finally got the good news & understood what it all meant, I can't explain the sheer & utter exhaustion that came over me. It wasn't just that I hadn't slept, (even though I hadn't!!), but I believe it was the amount of time in between my doctor appointment Wednesday, when I was told that I had a "large mass", up until after all the tests were finally completed & the outcome was explained to me in detail on Friday afternoon & all that time I had then to simply worry myself into a frenzy (because I was terrified!). Plus I was dealing with it pretty much on my own, since there's no way that all the "boys" (including DH) surrounding me understood what I was going thru. Anyway, after I got the good news, instead of jumping up & down in joy, even though I was so relieved & thankful, I actually felt like I'd been run over by a very large truck!! I don't think I've ever felt so utterly exhausted, almost to the point of feeling like I was outside of my own body, looking in. I don't remember even driving home (so the answer to one of the many questions that were asked of me was, "Did I have anyone go with me?"--Uhhmmm, no, I went alone, since DH was swamped, trying to get everything caught up at our main family business, before getting ready to leave on his overseas trip!) --anyway---when I got home, I just kept getting even more & more tired & I'm not sure why, but maybe it was just all the build-up of the worry about what might be happening!!  And when the news was good, perhaps the relief simply manifested itself in exhaustion--who knows??!! Because all I can say is that I honestly don't think I've ever felt that exhausted in my life!! Even all day Saturday & Saturday night, I could hardly move off the couch. And again today, all I really wanted to do was lay around, but at least I finally managed to drag myself into the shower & wash my hair late this afternoon, so I'm starting to feel half human again!!

Along with everything else, DH took off for his overseas trip very early this morning, around 4:30 AM. Even though all along I'd planned to drive him up to LAX where his flight originated (about an hour's drive without any bad traffic!), he must have seen how exhausted I was & therefore arranged with one of his friends who owns a limo company, to have a driver pick him up here & take him to LAX (L.A. International Airport) instead. It was a thoughtful gesture & believe me, I appreciated not having to drive up & back again to LAX before the crack of dawn this morning!!

I also appreciated the extra time to try to rest a little, since while DH is gone overseas, I'll be pulling "double duty" a good share of the time, running not only my own business, http://www.glendascreativeplace.com/  , but also caring for our main family business, along with our DS. (So please, be patient with me this week!!)

In concluding this message, I want to let you know that I DID feel all your positive thoughts, energy & especially your prayers coming my way, & I want every single one of you to know that I believe it was a big part of why everything turned out well for me. I know when we put our collective minds together to help uplift one another, we can accomplish amazing things. I for one am absolutely grateful & am forever in your debt for what you've done for me over the past few days, as well as the last several years, during the time that you've allowed me to be part of this community. You are all amazingly kind & generous people & I feel luckier than ever to be a part of you.

Thank you for everything from the bottom of my heart!!!

Sep 25, 2009

Please send your positive thoughts to me today

By the time this thread is posted, I will be checking into the hospital for some tests.  I know many of you are people of faith and/or just incredibly positive people and I'm asking you to channel some of that for me today.

I went to the doctor late afternoon on Wednesday, Sept. 23rd & while I was there, I was told that I had a "large mass" under my left armpit, in the breast.  Today was the soonest they could get me in (since all appointments yesterday were filled), so I'm off to get some kind of fancy mammogram.

I'm hoping with everything I've got that this turns out to be nothing and since there is NO history of breast cancer in my family, there's a good chance that's how it will turn out.  But for now, I must admit I'm absolutely terrified.  I've also had a horrible week (personally) with things having nothing to do with this, so it seems when it rains, it pours.  If there was ever a time I wish I was still living in the same town with my family, especially my Mom & my sister, Gail, this is it, instead of being surrounded by all these men here & an absolute sea of testosterone.  (Is is OK to want your Mommy if you're a middle aged woman??)

Add to that the fact that my DH is taking off (without me!!) for Monaco this weekend to meet up with his brother & sis-in-law (who live there) & his youngest sister & her 2 daughters, who will be traveling from the Mid East to meet him there.  There's been a lot of family loss surrounding us over the past month or 2, when my husband's youngest sister's husband dropped dead from a very unexpected, massive heart attack--no warning, nothing, leaving her a widow at age 48.  Then within that same week, his father died--also unexpectedly--he'd been suffering from dementia for a while, but was in good physical health, then he started to not feel well & within a 1/2 hour, he was gone.  So we've has been trying to get a visa for his sis & her 2 daughters (who are very young adults, still living at home) to come & visit here, just to help them clear their heads a bit, but we've had no luck.  But they were granted a visa to visit their other brother in Monaco & DH decided to fly over there to meet up with them, & just booked his flight earlier in the week.  I really thought I was also going, but it hasn't turned out that way & truthfully, I've been quite hurt by it.  But I always say everything happens for a reason & maybe the reason I wasn't allowed to go is because there might be something I need to take care of right here & now--I just don't know.  (See, I told you I was having a bad week!!)

I'm also feeling a little guilty because I have NOT kept current with my mammograms, so if this doesn't turn out well, I'll have no one to blame by myself.

What I'm asking of all you amazing people in my talented & generous community, who have become not just acquaintances, but also friends, to do for me this morning is just to put out all the positive thoughts you can muster for me & if you're so inclined, to say a little prayer as well.

Hopefully the next time I write here, it will be with great news that they found hadn't found anything & all this worrying had been for nothing!! 

Cross your fingers & wish me luck.  You are all the very best people & I couldn't be luckier to be a part of this amazing community!!

Congratulations to The Cuttlebug Spot on their 1 Year Anniversary!!!

Holy smokes, how time flies!! I can't believe that The Cuttlebug Spot http://www.cuttlebugspot.com/ is already one year old!! It hardly seems possible.

I remember when Nilda (the site owner & my friend!!) was trying to talk to anyone who would listen about adding a Cuttlebug Challenge Forum to the Cricut MB over a year ago, since both these products were being used together by the MB Members all the time.  Well, it seems Nilda was a tiny bit ahead in her thinking at the time, & when she couldn't get the CB Forum up & rolling right away (and believe me, she NEVER let up trying & finally succeeded!!) she decided to start her own blog about the Cuttlebug, about embossing & that's how "The Cuttlebug Spot" was born!!! It has evolved over this year into a place where of course, embossing is always featured, but now it also includes any machine capable of performing embossing.  So whether you have a Cuttlebug, a Big Shot or Big Kick, a Wizard, or other, this site is always there to inspire & challenge you to learn to use your machines &  all of the available & ever-expanding embossing tools & products out there to their utmost capabilities, which in turn, helps to elevate your crafting abilities. For that, I personally want to give a huge "THANK YOU" to Nilda & her fabulously talented design team for everything they've done to inspire & teach us over this last year.  I honestly can't wait to see what the coming year will hold for The Cuttlebug Spot!!

To show my appreciation & to help celebrate The Cuttlebug Spot's one year anniversary, I'd like to offer a prize for Tuesday, 9/22/09.

 Nilda will have something posted on her site, http://www.thecuttlebugspot.com/  for Tuesday, 9/22/09 , which will tell you how to enter to win my prize and I promise you, it's very easy--you don't have to stand on your head & twirl around 3 times while howling at the moon, or anything like that, LOL!!  You just have to email Nilda a secret word, which I will reveal within this post!!


Now let me tell you about the prize you can win from my site, http://www.glendascreativeplace.com/ --I think you're going to LOVE it!!  I think everyone knows by now that I've been totally captivated, have fallen in love with & have been vigorously selling the Spellbinders product line for a while now.  I know from the large number of orders I have to KEEP placing to continually replenish my Spellbinders inventory, that ALL of their products are well loved & very popular.  But, they introduced a totally new concept to their product line a few months ago that absolutely exploded onto the craft world & the popularity has not diminished at all so far, so I thought would be fun to give away something from that that product release.

Then of course, I had to struggle to decide WHICH of the 8 new designs (16 new dies!!) that were introduced in that product launch to offer, since every single one is more beautiful than the next--they're all absolutely breath-taking!!! Then I remembered an amazing card that Nilda had made & posted on the Cricut MB a while back, using an entire trio of one of the new designs--and let me tell you, when she posted that card, it truly went "viral".  I received sooooo many requests & orders for the 3 matching products she used on that card, it crashed my Yahoo email box--not to mention I sold out of the entire design & had to re-order them--TWICE (so far)!!!

Without further ado, the prize will be one of the new Spellbinders TULIPS Pendant dies.  If you're not familiar with these, there were 16 new dies released together that consisted of 8 new matching design themes --one Pendant die and one matching set of the Petite (A2 size) Borderabilities dies.  They were made to complement one another and they do so very well!!  Then to top it off, when Spellbinders did another new product release right after the Pendant/Petite Borderabilities roll-out, they released a new Impressabilities TULIPS embossing die & it works beautifully with the TULIPS Pendant & Borderabilities--so now, there's a trio of TULIPS!!!!  Can it get better than that??? 

Let me show you what they look like & their cost--

- TULIPS Pendant Dies (S4-209), which I sell for $16.50  --This is the one I'm offering as a prize over at http://www.thecuttlebugspot.com/ :



Next, here's the matching Petite (A2) Borderabilities dies (S4-211), which I sell for $14.00:

And last, but certainly not least, here's the TULIPS Impressabilities (I2-1008) for embossing, which I sell for $4.99:


Well, guess what??  After I decided to offer the Tulips Pendant as a prize, my little dog, Gucci (secret word!!) & I thought it would nice to offer a TULIPS Bundle, for all 3 of the Spellbinders TULIPS products together at a special price of $32.50, so everyone has another chance to own these beautiful products. Just email me at glendascreativeplace@yahoo.com,  please put the word "TULIPS" in your email subject line & tell me you want the TULIPS 3-Product Bundle, & be sure to include your zip code!!!  And please remember, if you want any of the Spellbinders products other than the TULIPS, be sure to email me, because I can help you with ANY of them, as well as many other great products from other manufacturers!!!  (See the information listed in my right sidebar!!)

OK now, be sure to go over to http://www.thecuttlebugspot.com/  & follow the instructions about how to email the SECRET WORD (which is "Gucci") from this post to Nilda, which will enter you to win!!  And be sure to check out Nilda's beautiful card that features all 3 of these Spellbinder's TULIPS products.  Good luck to all of you!!!


P.S. Gucci wants to wish all of you good luck as well!!

BIG Announcment-I’m the Newest Retailer for JustRite Stampers!!!



By popular request, I am now a new retailer for JustRite Stamps!!! http://www.justritestampers.com/ .
I’ve had several of my regular customers who’ve been asking me to start carrying these, so I finally acquiesced to their requests & opened up an account!!

These darling stamps are made to work together like a hand and glove with many of the basic shapes of the Spellbinders Nestabilities dies. In fact, if you see the samples shown in their online catalog, as well as on their blog, the majority do show their stamps sitting right in the middle of a Nestabilities basic shape, such as the Circles, Ovals, Rectangles & Squares!! So if you already have Nestabilities (or if you’re just beginning to collect them), you are going to NEED these stamps. It makes the process of putting together a card or layout even easier (and everybody knows that I am ALL about easy and quick crafting, LOL!!!).

If you’re not familiar with how these stamps work, they have different sizes and shapes of wooden blocks (with a built-in grid pattern), then the matching sizes of stamps (centers, borders, fonts…) snap right into those. There are LOTS with interchangeable borders and centers, which I think is soooo clever!! Then you just ink up with your selected colors, stamp it and then position a Nestabilities die or a punch around what you’ve stamped and proceed to either run it thru your die cutting machine or punch it out!!! Or if you want to use these stamps with your Cricut machines and cartridges, there are all kinds of perfect shapes available on various Cricut cartridges!! And if you have the Cricut Design Studio Software, or the new Cricut Gypsy, you can even manipulate your shapes to match whichever stamp you want to use!!! Just cut out your shapes and then stamp!!! VOILA’—a gorgeous addition or focal point for any card or layout!!!

I’m soooo excited about the various opportunities these darling stamps are going to open up for my own personal crafting and for that of all my customers!!! I just love ANYTHING that helps me get a project done quickly, don’t you??!!!

So, without further ado, here’s a link to their entire downloadable online catalog (I prefer the high resolution images, so you can get a really good look!!): https://www.justritestampers.com/custom.aspx?ID=85

Here are some of the newest additions, and just to alert you, many of these have already sold out, have then been on back-order, are just now coming back into stock and are expected to sell out yet again (whew!)—so, if you see anything that you want in these newer designs, please be sure to let me know ASAP, because JustRite IS expecting several of these to sell out again!!!!

For now, I’m just going to highlight the newest releases, BUT—I can order anything in their entire catalog, so be sure to browse through all their products online (you can actually download a PDF of their entire catalog!!!). I really love the “Kits” that have the wooden stamper already packaged in with the stamps—they’re a really good "buy"!!! Be sure to email me for prices for anything else in the catalog at glendascreativeplace@yahoo.com . Please put “JustRite” in your email subject line!

Here we go!! Please note, these are my introductory prices, so take advantage of these!!

WOWEE!!! Cricut is Celebrating its 100th Cartridge!!

It seems like only yesterday when I got my first baby Cricut from QVC (during their first launch!!) & the cartridges that were included--George & DoodleType. That was 2006!!

And now, as we're winding down 2009, Cricut is celebrating its 100th cartridge--yes, I said 100!!! The 100th cartridge is the very darling Winter Wonderland--see the details here: http://www.cricut.com/shopping/ProductDetails.aspx?id=361&s=1&sc=2 .

I already have this cartridge & it is sooooo stinkin' cute--and the most amazing feature on this cartridge is the ability to put together the houses/villages, so they'll function like those very expensive ones you find at the craft store for Christmas. But now, using the ones on the Winter Wonderland cartridge, you can just buy the little light kits to put behind your own decorated version of your village--lots less expensive & now, completely customized to your own design!!! You can even make it to look like your house, your neighborhood or even your town's "Main Street"!!!

Congratulations to Provo Craft & to Cricut on their 100th cartridge. Here's to another 100!!! I personally can't wait to see what's next!!!

Loaded with Spellbinders Dies here!! Fabulous Inventory.

Wow, I just keep ordering & ordering & thankfully, all of you keep buying. I have a great inventory of Spellbinders dies right now, especially on all the newest ones from CHA Summer, as well as all the gorgeous Pendants with their matching Borderabilities. Just check the right sidebar on my site for all the prices.

Ohhh, I am such a BAD blogger, but I just don't feel that I should post something when I have nothing new or worthwhile to talk about!!! I can't stand it when blogs get updated sometimes twice a day, even though the blog owner has nothing new to say--seems they're just updating for the sake of updating!!! It makes no sense to me. I try to not update until I have something I feel I need to convey to all of my Blog Followers. I just think it's kind of disrespectful of my Blog Follower's time otherwise!! JMHO!!

Well, can you believe it--I still don't have my web store all the way up yet, even though I'm already paying for it!!! I just don't have time to do it all on my own. I'm looking for someone with web technical abilities to help me, plus they need to know the CSS programming language, because that's what's needed to "tweak" the very boring templates that my hosting company provides!! I keep thinking I should be able to find a student, or an out of work website person somewhere who knows all this stuff & would help me for a reasonable price, but so far, no luck!!! So who the heck knows when I'm EVER going to get my "real" online store up & running. I know once it finally happens, it will save all of us a lot of time, because you'll be able to just click to buy about everything I offer & that will prevent me from going back & forth answering hundreds of emails (for pricing) a day!! I spend more time answering emails than anything else right now!!! I finally had a couple spare hours last weekend that I used to make some new & long overdue videos, but now, I haven't had the time to get them edited yet--and until I edit them, I can't upload them for you!!! I feel like I need to clone myself!!

Well, now that it's almost 4 AM (Pacific Time) & I still haven't had a chance to go to sleep yet because I've been answering emails for hours now!!! So I suppose I'd better sign off for now & try to get some rest, so I can be sharp & ready to work tomorrow (or I guess I should say, today, LOL!!). Hopefully you'll see some new videos up here soon & then maybe, if I'm really lucky, I'll find someone to help me get my online store up & running, so I can spend more time teaching & sharing techniques with all of you, which is what I LOVE to do!!!

Don't forget to email me at glendascreativeplace@yahoo.com for any qustions you might have, or to simply place your orders. I look forward to hearing from you!!

How LUCKY am I?? Already Received & am Shipping out my 1st Delivery of Spellbinders CHA Pre-Order Items!! WOW!! And Inventory Clearance Sale Finished.

Well, the secret is out: At the beginning of August, I was absolutely shocked (thrilled, but still shocked!!) when my first shipment of all the newest Spellbinder's CHA Pre-Order products arrived at my door!!! All I can say is I must be living right!! I haven't posted this until now, because I knew FULL well just how incredibly lucky & blessed I was to receive some of the very limited new CHA products that Spellbinders had just received themselves (in VERY limited quantities!!) from overseas & I didn't want to make all the other vendors feel bad (who won't didn't get an early shipment & likely won't see their orders until late August-mid September time frame)!! But now that it's been posted & "put out there" all over the message boards by my very excited customers who've been receiving many of their Spellbinders CHA Pre-Order items from me, it's no longer a "secret", so let me set the record straight.

The truth is that out of the several orders that I placed for the Spellbinders new CHA products during CHA (and more since then, since I'm still taking orders!!), I was one of the very lucky few who actually already received a shipment of the very first order I'd placed--and it happened soooo fast, I couldn't believe it when it showed up on my door!!! I almost passed out when I saw that the return address on the box was from Spellbinders--I couldn't fathom that any of the CHA pre-order items might actually be in there, Because, since the products had been first revealed, we'd been told over & over again, since the products were first revealed, that the earliest we MIGHT see the CHA pre-order items was mid to late August!!

I think I was lucky to receive my order, but I also believe that a good part of it was because I had pre-planned for "success", to make sure that one of the very first orders Spellbinders saw during CHA was mine. We'd been told that we couldn't transmit any CHA pre-orders until the convention floor actually opened at 9AM Eastern time on the first day of the CHA show (which was 6AM here in Pacific Time), so I actually stayed up all night (to make sure I didn't somehow oversleep!!), so I could send my order through the moment it was allowed. And that's exactly what I did--my order was transmitted as soon as the Spellbinder's site loaded the CHA products onto their site, just before 9AM Eastern Time on 7/28/09.

I also placed additional orders with Spellbinders throughout the course of CHA, because more & more people kept placing orders for more products with me, so I'm looking forward to seeing all those show up at my door!! So we're all waiting, along with Spellbinders, for their main shipments to arrive from overseas. But by placing your orders now, you're putting yourself in line, assuring that you WILL get the products. If you recall, the last pre-orders (a couple months ago) for all their new Pendant and matching Borderabilities dies sold out like wildfire. In fact, Spellbinders very quickly sold completely out of them & had to place another order for thousands & thousands more of them to be manufactured again overseas. Many people are still waiting to get their hands on those gorgeous dies. Again, I was "lucky" because I hedged my bets with those & placed multiple orders, so I've been in really good shape with those, just now selling out of a few of them. But, I've placed orders for more of these as well!!

Since receiving that first shipment of the CHA Pre-order products, I've been filling my customer's orders in the sequential order in which they were received by me & then paid for in PayPal. If there are any items that I don't have in stock at the moment, I'm still shipping out all the other items on the orders that I DO have right now. Then, those orders are being put into a 'Follow-Up' file by me. And when the rest of my Spellbinders product arrives here from my subsequent orders, I'll simply mail out whatever dies are still owed to you.

I'm still taking orders for all of Spellbinder's new CHA products, as well as all their other products. (Please see the sidebar on the right side of my blog for prices.) To place an order for any of the Spellbinder's products, please, email me at glendascreativeplace@yahoo.com with the list of products that you want, along with your ZIP CODE. Please put "Spellbinders Order" in your email subject line, so those emails stand out as a priority!!

The next item I want to bring to your attention is that my "Inventory Clearance Sale" is over, so all prices are returned to their regular state, which are all listed on the right sidebar of my blog. Thanks so much to all you who helped me clear out inventory in order to make way for the new products, because I was literally bursting at the seams!!! Even though that sale has ended, I know my prices are still really reasonable & very fair. I try really hard to give you the best prices I possibly can. And I hope you know how much I always appreciate your business & your loyalty!!

And don't forget that I'm also taking your pre-orders for all the brand new "Reveals" that were rolled out over the past couple of weeks. See my last post for all the information as to how to send me your pre-orders and all my pricing for the brand new items by CLICKING HERE!! I'll be placing my order very early on Tuesday morning, July 28th, so please, email me your lists of what you want, so no one gets shut-out this time. Pay VERY special attention to all the Holiday items. If you think you want ANY of those Holiday items, we need to get them ordered for you--ASAP. I'm terrified that they're going to sell out very fast, and a little "birdie" at Spellbinders indicated to me that IF/WHEN it happens that they do sell out of any (or all!!) of their Holiday items, because those are considered "SEASONAL", there's a VERY good chance that Spellbinders will NOT go back & ask that thousands more be re-manufactured. Because by the time they would do that and then the time it would take to actually have them re-manufactured and because the plant where they have them made is overseas (I think in China??), there then has to be more time allotted for them to ship back to USA, where after they finally arrive in USA, they'll then have to sit in Customs for usually a couple weeks, so once they finally clear Customs, they'll be shipped to Spellbinders, who will then have to inventory them. And once all that is done & everything is accounted for, then Spellbinder's has to start sorting out & packing the orders & then of course they have to get all those orders shipped out to the retailers, like me. So by the time this whole thing transpired, the Holiday Season would likely be over or very close to it. So there IS a very good & very logical reason that Spellbinder's might not re-order any Holiday dies that sell out. Since there's even any kind of chance about this, I want to be sure that I order enough of all the Holiday products right away. And I need your help to do so. I need you to email me with your pre-orders ASAP!!! See my last post for all the information as to how to send me your pre-orders and all my pricing for the brand new items by CLICKING HERE!!

So, come on now--help me clear out this inventory please!!! Everyone who places an order & pays their invoice from me during this week: 7/25 thru 8/2 will be entered into a contest for a full set of the new Cuttlebug Folders.

This also applies to pre-orders--everyone who has already placed their pre-orders for the new CHA Spellbinder's products--they will also be entered to win a set of the new Cuttlebug folders. Plus, I'll have a couple other 2nd & 3rd place prizes to give-away as well!!!
