Shel’s Stampin’ News                                                                           March 1, 2012

Hi Stampers and Scrapbookers! 

Happy March 1st!  

I am sooooooooo glad that February is done and over!   It was an insanely busy month for me and my least favorite month of the year- so YEAH!  March is here! 

I have lots to share with you this month, so let’s get started:

1.       The new Simply Scored Diagonal Plate is now available!  This is a plate that fits on your Simply Scored and allows you to create your own envelopes, boxes, as well as many other 3D items!  It has score lines every 1/8” and works with paper sizes up to 12” x 12”.  This is an amazing tool.  I just got mine and you are welcome to come over and try it out- I know you are going to love it!  It is just $15.95 and think of the money you will save when you can make your own envelopes instead of buying them.

2.      Don’t forget Sale-A-Bration…for every $60.00 in product you purchase you get to choose any item for FREE from the Sale-A-Bration catalog!  Choose from embossing folders, stamp sets, digital products, cardstock, designer series papers, ribbons and brads….lots of amazing products to choose from….it ends on March 31st.  Catalog is available on my blog:
