With one PML kit and a subsequent $3 package of page protectors, you can put an entire album together in a single day.  It is easy to see why the popularity of Pocket Scrapbooking  has just exploded over the past year.

Over the next few weeks, check back here to see some more ideas of what else you can do with these beautiful cards.

12 Days of Christmas – Day 12

Yesterday was the actual 12th Day of Christmas in those parts of the world who recognize the 12 Days after Christmas.  On one hand there is the feeling of a returning to the daily routine (kids back in school, relatives returned to their homes, sugar overload not constantly being thrust into your face).  On the other hand there is that somewhat melancholy feeling as the good-will and festivities wane, the credit cards bills begin to arrive, and the never-ending parties appear on the bathroom scale).  Hopefully Today’s Special will continue the good-will and festivities of the season if only for one more day.

This special is unlike any I have tried before, so I hope you like it.  There are so many great CTMH Products that it is impossible to put them all on-sale in 12 short days.  So to make sure you get all your Paper Crafting Products before the new catalog arrives February 1st, you get to choose what to buy.  Any item not previously on sale can be purchased today.

Take 20% off your first item

Take 30% off your second items

Take 40% off  your third item

Take 50% off your fourth and more items (may I suggest these be your more expensive items)

So take a look at the 2012 Spring/Summer for Stamps, the 2012 Fall/Winter Catalog (good until January 31st), and the previously posted retiring list (click here) so you will be ready to come Create-N-Play with us on a Wednesday or Saturday soon!

I will be working all day today putting together everyone’s orders so that I can place the order with CTMH.  I will send you a summary of your purchases to ensure I did not leave anything out.
