New Products and Card Buffet News!

Greetings! Is everyone ready for Spring???

I have lots of new products to tell you about, but first I will mention that the demand for the Card Buffet on Saturday, January 31st has been very high! I had 20 people sign up within just a few days, and had to stop taking any new registrations at that point. We started a waiting list to see how much more interest there would be, and the interest is definitely there! So another Card Buffet has been scheduled!


Saturday, February 14th

10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

lower level at The Barn Restaurant

Those of you that are on the waiting list, I will contact right away! If you would like to register for this event, you may do so by calling the store at 330-669-3737. The $20 registration fee must be paid over the phone by credit card, or by check or cash within 3 days of your registration (stop in to pay or mail a check.)

Since the number of people signing up for this event was so high, I did find it necessary to change the format slightly. The original plan was that you could come and make 10 cards in any combination. Many factors influenced my decision but mostly I just didn't want to run out of supplies for some of the cards, I didn't want anyone to be disappointed if they didn't get here in time to make the cards they wanted, and I didn't want 20 people to all show up at 10:00 a.m! So the format has been changed to one card of each design per person. You'll still make 10 cards, and as long as you are paid and registered you can show up at any time and be guaranteed that all the supplies you need will be here waiting for you! Clear as mud? Any questions, please don't hesitate to call or email!

We've got many new products in stock right now! Stop in soon to check out...

Friday, January 16, 2009


Beginning today, Friday, January 16th through Monday, January 19th there is a CLEARANCE SALE going on in the stamp department. Some items are marked down 40% and MANY items are marked down 70%!

It has come to my attention that the wording in the newsletter is a little misleading. Please realize this is a Clearance Sale. A time to get rid of the old, so I can bring in some new! I believe there is something for everyone, but please let me clarify that most of the current items in the stamp department are not on sale. This is clearance items only.

The sale on Christmas stamps and accessories is also continuing. Anything Christmas, including Cuttlebug items is 15% off!

Hope to see you soon!

Stamping Bella

Toyrifix Customers,
If you have the time, please let me know via email what you think about the images on these cards! Both images and sentiments are from a company called Stamping Bella, and we have the chance to start carrying their stamps here at Toyrifix! The stamps are sold individually and are unmounted rubber. So you either have to apply EZ Mount to the rubber, or use a product like Tack It! or Tack 'n Peel to apply the stamps to your acrylic block. Historically, unmounted rubber has not sold well here at Toyrifix, but I am hoping everyone will love these images enough to give them a try! They're really nice stamps and designs! So let me know by emailing me...

What's New?

New stamps for Valentine's Day are arriving every day! I just received an order from Inkadinkado, and have the very popular Nostalgia clear set, and also the Southern Belle set! Both are gorgeous! Click on their names above to see what they look like! I've also got Rock Star!

We also have some adorable Valentine and Birthday stamp sets from The Cat's Pajamas! We've got Loving Mew, Puppy Love, and Smells Like Cake. The stamps are so funky and cute, you'll want one of each set! (I know I do!)

We also have this cute new set from Impression Obsession called True Love as well as some cute wood-mounted Valentine stamps! (sorry, no pictures available for those stamps).

The Valentine stamps featured in the newsletter are taking their sweet time to arrive from Stampendous, but I'll let you know as soon as they arrive!

All Christmas stamps and accessories are 15% off right now, so stop in soon to stock up for next year!

I am gearing up for the upcoming Card Buffet! Already there are 19 people signed up and unfortunately I am going to have to cut off registration at 20. I didn't really plan to set a limit to the attendance. However, I didn't expect it to be this popular! :) If you haven't had a chance to sign up, but would still like to attend an event like this, please let me know! I will start a waiting list and if there's enough interest I will schedule another Buffet for February!

Happy stamping!
