November Stamp of the Month delayed

Please note, an unexpected problem with shipping has caused a delay in our order for the November Stamp of the Month! It will NOT be here on Saturday, November 1st! We are expecting it to arrive on Tuesday, November 4th however that will not be until late in the day as our UPS does not come until around 4:00 o'clock. I'm so sorry for the delay but there currently isn't anything else that can be done at this time. Please don't hesitate to call if you have any questions!

And a fun time was had by all!

The New Product Showcase this past Thursday night was a huge success, and a lot of fun! I was so happy to see so many of you, and I hope you enjoyed your evening! I was very nervous about how everything was going to work out, and definitely did not need to be! The demonstrators (Anita and Sherri) were super, and those Make & Take ladies (Darlene and Sandy) did a fabulous job! The refreshments were just the right little treat for the evening, and Rachel (my one paid employee for the evening!) was a huge asset to me and worked like a machine that evening helping me set up and everything. We both headed out at 10:00 p.m. exhausted but happy with how fun the evening was!

Here are a few pictures to share!

For those of you wanting instructions for the little pumpkin basket that Anita was making, you can find it here on the Stampendous website. There are still a few of those pumpkin stamp sets left, so come in and get yours before they're gone! And for those of you with $5 bonus coupons from the evening, don't forget they're only good through October 23rd!

Several of the stamp sets from Just Rite Stampers were sold out on Thursday night. My plan is to get more ordered over the weekend, so that they have the order Monday morning. They always ship within 24 hours, and the shipments takes a day to arrive from Illinois. So I'm hoping it arrives by Thursday for any of you that would like to buy a few more things with that bonus coupon!

I'll have pictures of all the samples that were made just as soon as I can! Friday ended up being a really crazy day at the store as many schools were apparently off for the day and we had a ton of customers. I spent too much time having to sell toys than getting to do anything remotely related to the stamping department, so I haven't had a chance to take pictures of everything yet! Stay tuned!

My deepest thanks again to everyone for coming out on Thursday night, and I truly hope you had an enjoyable time! I'd like to have an evening like this at least twice a year, so be watching your newsletter for another Showcase in April 2009!

Projects from the New Product Showcase (Just Rite Stampers)

Here are pictures of all the fun projects that Sheri created for the New Product Showcase on Thursday evening! Sheri really took to these products from Just Rite Stampers, and created some fabulous designs to inspire your creativity! What was your favorite? I can't pick just one!

Projects from the New Products Showcase (Stampendous)

Here are pictures of all the fun projects that Anita created for the New Product Showcase on Thursday evening! She did such a fabulous job with Stampendous' new Shape Shifting Technique on the pumpkin and snowman! And who didn't LOVE those Angel Wings on the acetate! I can wait to try that on some projects myself!

Countdown to the New Product Showcase!

It was great to see so many of you at the Adventures in Stamping show in Strongsville on Saturday! I hope you find some great ideas while browsing the booths! If there's something I can get for you that you saw and regret not buying, just let me know! Did you see the Toyrifix ad in your program? I was very excited to get an advertisement in there, and plan to do so again in the Spring! Everyone in Northeast Ohio needs to know what a great little store we have here!

We're counting down to the New Product Showcase on Thursday evening, and are really excited to see so many of you have bought your tickets! There is still some space available, so give us a call or stop in soon to get your spot reserved! You can read all about the Showcase at this post!

My demonstrators are hard at work preparing their final projects, and my Make-and-Take ladies are excited to help you with our little project! The refreshments are going to be yummy! And I've got some nice door prizes just begging to be won by you! Everyone in attendance has a chance to win!

Please call or email if you have any questions! I can't wait to see YOU on Thursday evening!

There is still time to get your tickets for the NEW PRODUCT SHOWCASE coming up on Thursday, October 16th, but they are selling fast and I know you don't want to miss this event! Here are the details...

"In an effort to continually showcase what's new and trendy on the stamping scene, we've decided to replace the yearly Winter Stamp Workshop in January with this New Product Showcase on October 16th! We are very excited about this change, and hope you will be also. As more new products appear on the horizon this winter, we'll bring them to you in the spring with another showcase!

So come spend an evening in the Toyrifix Stamping Department! We'll be showcasing many new products that were introduced over the summer with several in-store demonstrations including new Cuttlebug items, new products from JustRite Stampers, and Christmas stamps from Stampendous. We'll also have a make-and-take, door prizes, and light refreshments. There is a $5.00 registration fee for this event. However, if you spend $50 on the night of the workshop, you will receive a bonus coupon for $5.00 off your next stamping purchase at Toyrifix through October 23rd.

Registration can be done at the store, or by phone with a credit card. You must have the "ticket" you are given when you register for admission on the night of the workshop. (Phone orders can have their tickets mailed to them!) We hope to see YOU at the workshop!"

Copic Markers

Just a quick note to let you know that I have added over a dozen new colors recently! AND I'll be demonstrating them again on Friday, October 24th from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. for those of you that missed the demo the first time! I hope you'll have time to stop in!

Happy stamping!
