Creative Embellishments Grand Opening Sale and Giveaway

Creative Embellishments, a brand new laser cut chipboard and embellishment company and they’re having a Grand Opening! Here’s their first post on the store blog

“Today we are finally open for business. I am excited and nervous at the same time. I guess it’s due to my perfectionist personality. Honestly I didn’t realize how much needed to be done before we actually opened. It goes way beyond just designing and creating with the products. I am not the most tech savvy person but am definitely learning a lot.  Ok I don’t want to bore you with all the specifics.

A little about us…. Creative Embellishments is a small, family owned company located in western New York that was started by my husband and I. Michael Kramer (the hubs ;) )  is a prolific graphic artist who creates websites, mobile websites, logos and images for print design. Nicolle (that’s me..;))  is a stay at home mother of 4 and a passionate artist who has been actively creating for over 8 years. I  enjoy altered art, mixed media applications and all styles of scrapbooking. What started out as a hobby, in order to pass down memories and family history to my children, evolved once I discovered the vast online community of artists and scrappers 3 years ago. Our goal is to design high quality, fun, inspiring, unique designs to bring out your inner creativity. Creative Embellishments promotes positive growth as an artist and most importantly, having tons of fun while creating. We highly value our customers (friends) and aim to provide premium quality products at great prices and excellent customer service. We look forward to a bright future.

Now for some fun! To celebrate our GRAND OPENING I am having a 20% off SALE (use coupon code CE20) and free shipping for a $30.00 or more purchase at our >>STORE<<  .

Paper Secrets May Challenges and Events

The May challenges have been posted on Paper Secrets. You’ll find an awesome layout sketch, a manufacturer challenge (this month, it’s Glitz), card sketch w/a twist (the twist is to use bare chipboard on your card and alter it some way), and a stash challenge (rubons). Once I’ve had a chance to resize the photos, I’ll post examples for the challenges here on my blog.

In honor of National Scrapbook Day (NSD) we’re also hosting a wonderful event:

Please mark your calendars for the upcoming NSD event on May 7th, so you don’t miss out! 😀 There will be some fun challenges, prizes and BINGO, so be sure to stop on by next Saturday to play along! Hope to see you there!

Review – Unity Stamps Company un-mounted rubber stamps

I recently received my first set of un-mounted rubber stamps made by Unity Stamp Company. The set I tried out was the Co-branded Sweet Season set featuring Webster’s Pages designs.


Upon opening the packaging, which was very environmentally friendly, I quickly noticed that these stamps already have the cling foam attached for you and are already pre-cut! All you have to do is punch them out, peel the protective white paper off of the cling and you’re ready to go! No more sticky foam mounting and messy cutting with these fabulous stamps! A+++ for ease of use. 😀

I then inked them up and took them for a test run. I was very impressed with the deeply etched intricate designs, the high quality rubber and even the quality of the cling foam that they use. The resulting impressions were gorgeous! I can’t wait to get my hands on some more!

Unity Stamp Co. offers a wide variety of un-mounted red rubber stamps, and some mounted stamps as well. They now also offer 11 Co-brands such as; IOD (Iron Orchid Designs), Cosmo Cricket, Donna Downey, Echo Park, Webster’s Pages, Bella Blvd and more! Many of the Co-Brands cater to papercrafters, so their stamps are designed to coordinate with their designer papers!

Currently in their sale section, you’ll find many goodies priced below $10. Lots of their kits are marked down 30%-75% off for their year end clearance! PLUS They are offering FREE SHIPPING until the end of the year (so you’d better hurry!) AND a FREE STAMP for every $10 you spend until Jan 3rd 10am CST.
