24 Hour Flash Sale and Jolly Moose Tutorial


Hi Friends! Just a friendly reminder that TODAY is the LAST DAY of the Holiday Online Extravaganza! Lots of great savings for you - or for those on your Christmas gift list.

Today is also our last 24 hour Flash Deal, which includes the Magnetic Platform. This is one of my favourite tools - it makes a HUGE difference when using framelits and thinlits through the Big Shot.

https://www.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=13065&dbwsdemoid=10000378

The Magnetic Platform is a real game changer. If you don't already have it and have been sitting on the fence about getting it, then I encourage you (or Santa) to grab it today (and save some money at the same time!).
