More new CHA Product updates & information-Spellbinders, JustRite, Zutter, Ranger...

WooHoo!!!! I finally got a tracking # from Spellbinders for the ONLY dies that weren't sent in my original shipment (the one that I received from them last Monday, 2/15/10) and the news is good!  They've been shipped and that usually means a couple of days delivery time from Spellbinders headquarters to me (at the most), so the wait is almost over for that small handful of dies that were delayed coming in from overseas!

To recap, I already have ALL the new Spellbinders releases in my hands right now, except for the missing Easter dies & the new Big Scalloped Circles and those will be here any day now!!!!  YIPPPEEEE!!

For those of you who haven't seen all the new Spellbinders CHA Releases, here's a link to most of them: http://spellbinderspaperarts.com/new-dies?limit=all . The new items that aren't shown in this link are the new Impressabilities (for embossing and letter-pressing) and you can find those on this link (--the first 6 shown on this page are the new releases--and they're even prettier in person!!): http://spellbinderspaperarts.com/impressabilities .

For those of you who haven't spoken with me about my Spellbinders pricing for the CHA New Releases, here's the pricing that I set up before I went to CHA for the pre-orders and I'm still honoring these fabulous prices right now:

If the MSRP is $24.99, my price is $15.99.
If the MSRP is $19.99, my price is $13.99.
If the MSRP is $ 6.99, my price is $ 4.49.

If you've been waiting for the Spellbinders new releases to arrive before placing your order, then your wait is over!! You can place an order for the new Spellbinders releases, as well as the newest releases from JustRite Stamps (or any of the other manufacturers I carry!!) by emailing me the list of products that you want (with the product name and product code --if you happen to have that!!), along with your zip code (for shipping) to glendascreativeplace@yahoo.com .  Please put the words: "NEW CHA RELEASES" in your email subject line.

I've also placed orders for a small amount of the beautiful new colors released at CHA in the Tim Holtz Distress Inks product line.  It appears from the emails I'm receiving about them that I'm going to have to place an additional order to get more of them for you!!  So, if you want any of the new Distress Inks and/or their re-inkers, please let me know that as well!!  Here's a link to the Ranger site which shows the new colors with their product code (this is for the ink pads)--they're on the first line and are the first twelve shown: http://rangerink.com/products/prod_dyeink_distresspads.htm .  And here's a link to the re-inkers for the new colors along with their product codes: http://rangerink.com/products/prod_dyeink_distressreinker.htm .  (Please specify in your email if you want the ink pads or the re-inkers, or both!!  Thanks!!)

I was lucky enough to have taken another class with my "Tim Timmie" (the genius aka Tim Holtz!!) at CHA, so I got to play with all his new Distress ink colors and they are spectacular!!  My personal favorites are the new pink, Spun Sugar, some of the new blues, especially the Tumbled Glass & Chipped Sapphire, and I'm sooooo excited about the new Pumice Stone, which is FINALLY the most perfect distressing color--EVER!!!  As much as I love Antique Lace, Old Paper & few others for distressing, they all have a sort of color cast, either yellowish or greenish.  But Pumice Stone didn't seem to have any color cast like that--it was just PERFECT!!!  I can't wait for these arrive at my door!! 

I've also had a lot of questions and requests about the new Zutter Distrezz-It-All (aka DIA), which is another fabulous and incredibly useful and smart tool by the same manufacturer, Zutter, who makes our beloved Bind-It-All (BIA) and DreamKuts (DK) machines!!! This new tool actually automatically distresses your papers and all the way up to heavy material such as corrugated cardboard!  No more hand-sanding for us!!  No more destroying your nails and manicure! The DIA will distress cardboard, chipboard, wood, leather, fabric-covered projects and up to 12 sheets of cardstock at once, all in the blink of an eye!   I WILL be ordering the Distrezz-It-All for those of you who ask me to order it for you.  The MSRP is $39.99, but obviously I will have a "special coupon code" and/or a "bundle" for my customers, to make sure you get it at a better price.  However, due to the Minimum Advertised Price Policy (aka MAP) instituted by Zutter, I can not publish or advertise my "special" price, so you will have to email me for those Distrezz-It-All  "specials/coupon codes/bundles"!!  Here's a link to a YouTube video showing what the DIA can do:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HFrjSwnmdMs&feature=player_embedded

I will also order, upon request, the new Zutter Cutter (aka ZUTKUT), which is their new seriously powerful trimmer.  This trimmer can cut almost anything, from the lightest weight paper, on up to chipboard, book board, Zutter Canvas Artboard, Zutter Clipboard Wood, foam board, stacks of cardstock, leather and Zutter's New Corrugated Cardboard.  So for those of you who need a more powerful and efficient trimmer, you may want to consider this new ZUTKUT.  It is a serious and heavy duty trimmer, from the construction of it, which is made from steel, on up to the price tag.  The MSRP is a hefty $169.99, but once again, I will have coupon codes, specials and bundles, which will allow for a much better price.  And once again, because of the Zutter MAP, I can't advertise those prices here, so you'll need to email me for them. Here's a YouTube video which shows this new new Zutter Kutter:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pnOAlSZS2YI&feature=player_embedded# . FYI--both of these Zutter products are due for release in March.

Well, there's the latest news and wrap-ups from Glenda's Creative Place, all about the new and most fun product releases from CHA Winter 2010!!!!!!!!  As always, please email me for help and information at glendascreativeplace@yahoo.com .

Even more good news about CHA Spellbinders deliveries!!

I got an early morning call from Spellbinders today with some REALLY good news!!  The only dies that were still missing from the original shipment of all the new CHA releases that I received earlier this week (on Monday, 2/15/10), were being packed & loaded for me today in their warehouse in preparation to be shipped, so I should have ALL the new CHA Spellbinders releases in my hands by early to mid next week!!!  WOOHOO!!!  The dies that I'm talking about that were missing are the Easter dies & the Big Scalloped Circles (LG & SM). They were missing because their delivery from overseas had been delayed.

So, if I already shipped you all your Spellbinders CHA new releases except for any of these missing dies, I will mail them out to you as soon as they arrive.  If you've placed an order within the last day or two that includes any of these dies, then I've already make arrangements with you about your entire shipment.

This is REALLY GOOD NEWS, because originally there was talk that none of these dies might not arrive until sometime in March!!!!

Next thing is getting all the new Tim Holtz stuff for those of you that have placed orders for those, and then the new Zutter Distrezz-It-All & then.... Sooooo many new products, soooooo much fun waiting to be had, LOL!!!

If any of you want any of these new, very cool products, please email me at glendascreativeplace@yahoo.com  with the product name & if you have it, the product ID, along with your zip code!!  Please put something in your email subject line like this:  "NEW PRODUCTS--Tim Holtz", or "NEW PRODUCTS--Zutter"...etc., "...Ranger...", just so I know right away which product line you're interested in.

I can't WAIT to find some time to play with all my new toys myself, LOL!!!

I'mmmmm BACK!!!! And new CHA Products are here & more arriving-Spellbinders, JustRite, Ranger, Zutter...

Well, here I finally am, with an internet connection that will now hopefully STAY working!

Great news to share is that new CHA products that I ordered are arriving!!  FYI--most of the new CHA Spellbinders releases were delivered today (except for a handful of them, mostly the Easter Dies and the Big Scalloped Circles, but Spellbinders says they're expecting those to arrive from overseas early next week (hopefully Mon or Tues 2/22 or 2/23), so they'll be here soon as well--woohoo!!!).

The new releases for JustRite Stamps are already here and more products are scheduled to arrive later in the week!!  And the rest of the products I'm interested in, such as the new Ranger & Zutter products are all still on schedule to arrive either late Feb or early March.  (So, if there's anything you want me to order for you, please let me know!!)
 
For those of you who haven't heard, I've had a very faulty internet connection over the last few weeks, ever since we had those horrific rain storms just before CHA began.  Apparently, it wasn't just my poor garage that got flooded out, but also the underground wiring of our internet provider, so our internet keeps "shorting out"!!  Not too fun, especially because there's no warning, no notice, nothing before it happens.  So, I would be typing away, thinking I was almost done and then, voilĂ ', the internet would just shut down and I'd lose everything (or close to it!) that I'd been working on!  So we'd have service, then we wouldn't, then we would and we wouldn't....well, you get the picture, right??  Needless to say, it's been a very frustrating experience to say the least (GRRRRR!!!!), but also quite a wake-up call as to how very dependent we've become on technology! 

All I can say is I thank goodness I'm still such a "paper hoarder", because whenever you send me your orders, I always print out everything, so even when the internet wasn't functioning, I was still able to work from those, which was a life-saver!!  But hopefully now, that's a thing of the past  and they've gotten all the water that was standing underground here finally drained out, dried off and going forward, we'll have normal internet service again (is there actually such a thing as "normal" internet service, LOL??)!!!  I have sooooo missed this!

For those of you who haven't seen all the new Spellbinders CHA Releases, here's a link to most of them:  http://spellbinderspaperarts.com/new-dies?limit=all  .  The new items that aren't shown in this link are the new Impressabilities and you can find those on this link (--it's the first 6 of them that are new--and really pretty!!):  http://spellbinderspaperarts.com/impressabilities .  I'm also going to get them all posted here as well, but it's going to take a little time, so I wanted to be sure to at least get as much information posted for you as I possibly could, right away.

For those who haven't spoken with me about my Spellbinders pricing for the CHA New Releases, here's the pricing that I set before I went to CHA for the pre-orders and I'm still honoring these fabulous prices:
If the MSRP is $24.99, my price is $15.99.
If the MSRP is $19.99, my price is $13.99.
If the MSRP is $  6.99, my price is $ 4.49.

If you haven't placed any pre-orders with me yet, you can still place orders for the new dies (or the beautiful new releases for JustRite Stamps!).  Just email me your list of products with the product name and its' product code (if you have that!), along with your zip code (for shipping)  to glendascreativeplace@yahoo.com .  Please put the words:  "NEW CHA RELEASES" in your email subject line.

For all of you who have already placed your pre-orders with me (thank you soooo much!!), you should have already received your invoices from me thru PayPal.  As soon as all the products that you ordered have arrived and your invoices are paid (and most all of you have already paid--thanks so much for your promptness--I DO have the VERY BEST customers!!!), I will ship to you!!!!  If by some very slim chance you placed an order with me, but still have NOT received an invoice from me yet, please email me right away.  I don't think I've missed anyone, but with the internet hell that we've been thru, I suppose anything is possible!

For those of you who are wondering where are Glenda's CHA videos???  They are coming, plus a bunch of other "HELP/TUTORIAL" videos I've done---but on top of all my internet problems, I've also had a problem with  my video editing software and it keeps crashing.  Have I been in technology hell or what??!!  It appears that I transferred a vital Adobe file off my laptop when I moved a bunch of videos to an external hard drive--(duh, Glenda!!), so now I'm trying to figure out which file I deleted/moved, so I can get all my videos finished and posted for you!  (I'm thinking I need to hire a technology helper, LOL!!).

Wow, it feels good to be back!! I have missed all of you soooo much!!!  Please let me know if I can help you in any way!

Now, I'm going to sign off because my little dog, Gucci is barking like crazy, which usually means that the UPS man is here!!!  Ohhhh, let me run and go see, because that hopefully that means that more new products are at my door!!!!!! WOOOOHOOOOOO!!!!!!
