Stop in soon!

We've added lots of new products in the last 1-2 weeks in the stamp department, so stop in soon! Recent additions include Fall and Christmas stamps from Penny Black and Inkadinkado. Also, the newest releases are here from My Favorite Things! Yesterday saw the arrival of a big box of iridescent, felt and sheer Blossoms & Leaves from Creative Impressions, as well as matching glimmer brads! We also got some pretty new ribbon from Creative Impressions perfect for your fall projects, as well as jumbo cotton rick-rack in olive green and rust.

A shipment that arrived from Inky Antics included some adorable "chicken" stamps! Picture a stamp with a chicken laying sick in bed, and the accompanying sentiment stamp that says "heard you were under the feather!" Too cute! Stop in soon to check out the chickens!

We have more stamp sets coming from JustRite Stampers early next week, since we sold out of everything following the demo last week! I'd like to extend a HUGE thank you to everyone that came to the demo! It was great to see so many people here! If you weren't able to be here and would like to see what was demo'd you can check out these 2 links...

Don't forget we have the Copic markers in stock now! If you missed the demo last month and are wondering what is so great about these markers, stop in anytime I'm here and I'll give you a personal demonstration! Just call or email to see when I'm available!

The last few days of August will find me placing orders from Impression Obsession, Hero Arts, Stampendous, My Mind's Eye and Magenta as there have been a lot of special orders from customers for those companies. If there's something you'd like me to order, please let me know before August 26th! It's possible I'll be ordering Thomas Kinkade stamps, too as well as restocking the Nestabilities and Cuttlebug embossing folders!

Remember the "It's Irresistible" stamp classes this month! I've got some great cards planned all using different resist techniques that you will love! Both classes (August 19th from 6:00 to 8:00 and August 26th from 2:00 to 4:00) have openings available so please come out and stamp with me at one of these classes!

Have a great weekend and happy stamping!

Just a few notes....

Hello everyone! Just a few notes to update you on happenings at Toyrifix!

Tuesday, August 12th from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. there will be an in-store demonstration. The demonstration was changed after the newsletter went to print, and instead of products from Doodlebug Designs I will be demo'ing the JustRite monogram stamper. This stamper is one of the neatest things, and you'll want to pick one up and all the accessories, I'm sure! To see a few examples of what I've made so far using it, click here. This is just a very small sampling of the different designs available, and the products that are available. I hope you'll find time to stop by anytime between 2:00 and 4:00.

The new holiday embossing folders for the Cuttlebug are in stock! We've sold out of some of the new additions from a few weeks ago, but more are on the way!

Fall/Halloween and Christmas stamps are on display too, including some new additions from Inkadinkado and My Favorite Things! I'm adding more Christmas stamps to each order I place these days so keep checking in for new additions. And by all means, if there's something out there I can order for you, please let me know! I'll do my best!

And finally, the Copic markers are in stock. If you missed the demo on July 25th and would like to have a private demonstration to see what these are all about, please don't hesitate to let me know by calling or emailing me! I love to use these markers and am happy to show you how!

Hope you're having a great weekend, and enjoying this beautiful summer weather! Happy stamping!
