November's "Kit of the Month"

For those of you that purchased, I'd like to know what you thought of the "Kit of the Month" concept for this past month? If your mind needs refreshing, it was the Echo Park 6x6 paper pad, matching brads and matching seam binding ribbon. Did you like this idea of a "packaged deal"? Or if you didn't like it, and decided not to purchase, I'd like to know that, too! I'd appreciate some feedback for future reference! Thanks! (One random commenter here or on Facebook will be in the running to win a Toyrifix gift card!)

Ornament Topper Make-and-Takes

Saturday, December 10th
stop in anytime between 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
(while supplies last!)
Cost: $3.00 per person/ornament

We'll be creating these beautiful ornament toppers here at Toyrifix using stamps from Outlines! For $3 you will be able to choose a red, green, blue or white glass ball ornament, stamp the toppers on your choice of three colors of cardstock, emboss in silver or gold, and cut out the pieces. Clear rhinestones will be available for optional purchase, and you may use Copics here at the store to color them to match your ornament. (To eliminate the hassle of having to leave the store with wet glue still on your ornament, we will not be applying the rhinestones... you'll want to finish your topper at home.)

If possible, please bring your own pair of scissors good for trimming!

Other toppers from Outlines will also be on display and available for purchase that day!

Make one for yourself, or to give as a gift!

Many thanks to Barbara Anders from Paper Pursuits for the beautiful inspiration shown here with her beautiful ornament topper!

Holiday Shaker Cards Class

We had a GREAT time at the Holiday Shaker Cards Class at the store on Tuesday evening! Below are the cards we made, with some descriptions! And please read all the way down for some additional information!

This card uses the "Vintage Postcard" stamp set from Flourishes (currently in stock at the store!), and was highly inspired by this design from my good friend, and Flourishes Sr. Design Team member Danielle Kennedy. (It was copied with her permission!) :) As you can see, we cut out a "frame" for the image inside, and with a layer of acetate and some chunky glass glitter and microbeads, we created this beautiful Christmas Shaker card!

And the pumpkin card below was inspired by the shaker card tutorial on Splitcoaststampers. We used some new Bella Blvd. papers for the design, and added some clear microbeads inside the pumpkin frame to create the shaker!
NOW, if you missed out on this class and would be interested in another one I am considering having it again! However, instead of the pumpkin, we'll be using the Nestabilities Ornaments dies shown below (since Fall is nearing it's end!) If you would be interested in a repeat class, please leave a comment here or email me (tammy dot toyrifix at gmail dot com). I don't have a date in mind yet, but will wait to hear from people!

Lost Cases

On Thursday, October 13th, two 12x12 plastic cases containing numerous pieces of designer paper and cardstock were found lying in the parking lot over nearBuchanan Place. They are still here at Toyrifix, waiting for their owner to retrace their steps and come back to claim them! These pictures show some of the papers and projects that are in the cases. If you recognize these as belonging to you, or a stamping friend please tell them to contact Toyrifix ASAP at 330-669-3737. If these are not claimed by Friday, November 11th they will be donated to a charity. (You can click on the photos for close-ups.)
