Just a belated update to THIS POST – my Joann.com sale order:
I don’t remember what date I received this but it arrived quickly and was packaged nicely. As always, everything is much nicer looking in person that it was online.
All of the turquoise in the border stickers is foiled and it’s SO pretty! The other MAMBI set has a lot of inlaid glitter (is that what you would call it?) where it’s like part of the sticker itself so it won’t flake off and make a mess of your projects. Love the font too. The colors in the Jillibean Soup papers are darker than I thought they’d be but still very nice.
All 3 items with tax (and free shipping) were only $11.26 total.
I did notice that Joann.com had a 50-cent markup on the retail price for both of the MAMBI items . . . interesting. But I got them on sale so nanner nanner!
I wanted the whole collection kit of the Jillibean – super cute mini alpha included . . .
. . . but that put me over my limit so I just got the paper pack.
I need WRMK albums and would’ve splurged on those but they only have like 5 colors and none of the ones I need. I hear they’re doing a re-packaging or something so everyone has very low stock on them right now :( But they may have the color(s) you need so check it out!
For a limited time, MEMORY WORKS (who I’m a consultant for) has in stock:
“Moravia” by SEI…. How about a tease? This is what the Theme Set looks like ($6.00)…
There are matching “Moravia” rub-ons, stickers, and chipboard. I love the rich colors and textures of this line, don’t you?
We also have some new stuff by Jillibean Soup ~ the Alphabet Soup theme set ($6.75)…
…”Bean Stalks” ribbon ($6.00)
…”Journaling Sprouts” ($3.50) in a bunch of colors (here’s one)…
…”Corrugated Kraft Alpha” ($5.00)….super cute and so textural!
…and this stinkin’ adorable “Calendar” stamp ($7.00); you can make your own Journaling Sprouts!
What exactly is the limit on the number of acrylic stamps one could own before you would consider them, say, mentally ill? Because I really need these Calendar stamps…but I’m probably pretty close to that theoretical acrylic stamp limit where you’d say, “Biz-natch, you need to STOP with the stamps already!” Just sayin’…
The Jillibean Soup BLOG has a ton of GREAT layout and project ideas for the above items. I was pleasantly surprised to see that SHANNON ZICKEL is designing for them. I’ve seen her layouts in magazines so many times, I’d recognize her son if I passed him on the street, lol! And hey, whaddya know, Laura Vegas is also on the Jillibean Design Team; I just linked to her scraproom makeover in my last POST. It’s a small scrap world after all…
You can see all the SEI and Jillybean Soup HERE, and also place an order. Please contact me at the e-mail shown HERE if I can help with an order or any questions :) . These items are our Trend Essentials for October…only here while supplies last, or until October 31, 2009. Hurry before they’re gonzo!
