June News and Specials

Deal of the Day starts June 1st!

Beginning at 9:00 am (MT) each day, a new offer runs for a full 23 hours (the deals are updated between 8:00–9:00 am each morning), so shoppers will have plenty of time to take advantage of every deal every day. However, because we expect heavy ordering loads, we strongly encourage you to take advantage of the full 23-hour window rather than rushing to the deal at 9:00 am, which may slow the shopping experience considerably. (And don’t worry about getting there first; we have healthy inventory levels of all items.) By shopping at off-peak times, you are more likely to have a fast, easy transaction than if you shop during peak hours.

We’ll have two types of offers: FREE items with any single My Acrylix® stamp set purchase (K-size and Stamp of the Month excluded), and loaded goodie boxes for a savings of at least 50% on retired favorites and a few current items, including stamp sets, paper packets, and a wide variety of embellishments. What’s more, the irresistible shipping discounts will blow your mind!

Name Door Hanger- Altered Item


2-3 different B&T Duos ( I used Key To My Heart)
1 sheet of colonial white or white daisy cardstock
ready to finish wooden frame (size depends on the name I used 5x7)
ready to finish wooden letters for the name
Bonding memories
hot glue gun or wood glue
stamps and inks (Key To My Heart, creme brulee, juniper, sorbet, tulip)
CTMH micro-tip scissors
sponge texture tool

How To:
First I traced each letter on the back of the papers, cut them out and glued them on the letters. I then traced the frame on the cardstock, cut that out, and glued that to the frame. I used the Key To My Heart stamp set, juniper ink, tulip, ink, and sorbet ink to decorate the frame. Then, I used the creme brulee ink pad to stamp the frame to add color and texture to the cardstock. I also used the sponge texture tool to add sorbet ink to the frame. I used hot glue to adhere the letters to the frame to ensure it was a strong enough bond to be hung on a moveable door. Wood glue would also work for this. Cut a peice of 5x7 Tulip cardstock and glue it to the photo back to the frame. After everything has dried you are ready to hang on a wall or door. Happy Scrapping!
