Cyber Monday Specials: Time to Order TODAY!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I stayed far, far away from the shops all weekend and enjoyed my shopping savings online instead.  Today, I am offering a few specials in honor of Cyber Monday…

Today Only, Receive 5 FREE holiday cards w/your holiday card order!  As long as you meet the minimum of 10 cards, no coupon code is needed, your 5 additional cards will be automatically added when you order before midnight tonight.

Also, save 15% today on all orders over $20!  Hurry and get your list together to place your holiday order today! To save, use the code: MONDAY

I have been receiving a lot of inquiries about timeframes for new orders.  This time of year is incredibly busy for me, so turnaround time is typically a little longer b/c I have more samples to work on, but I do log a lot of hours to ensure your holiday gifts get to you on time!

Photo card samples typically run close to schedule, with sample turnaround averaging 1-3 business days, and then you will need to allow several days for printing and shipping.

Stationery orders vary based upon what items you have ordered as well as large or small your orders are and the current volume of orders. As a general guideline, I advise you to allow a week for your order to be ready to ship—this could be much less, or a little more.

Happy Shopping—only 26 days left, yikes!!!

New Gift Idea: Family Team Pads!

This idea came from a custom pad on a recent order.  The customer personalized a rainbow family name pad with the family’s favorite team colors!  Match up with die-hards favorite NCAA or pro sports team colors—any combo can be done.  Such a neat idea for a holiday gift!


I will be adding these as a separate new item this week, but until then, order yours by customizing the family name pads!

Traditional Vs. Non-Traditional

CPCC offers a wide variety of holiday card designs to choose from, so you are sure to find something to suit your tastes.  I will begin adding designs from the holiday 2010 collection the first week of October.  Are you a traditional colors person or do you prefer non-traditional colors and designs?  (Personally, I like both!) Here is a look at a new design from the 2010 collection in both traditional and non-traditional colors:

New mod owl envelopes

I love the pink owl school envelopes, but as I mentioned previously, I did not think my boys would be too thrilled to carry them in to school.  So, I made some more boy-ish versions!

Ladybug Customs

Ladybugs are a very popular theme for little girls this year! Recently, I did a custom order for someone who was looking for a ladybug-themed invitation using a single photo. I played around with a few ideas…

This first one is an adaptation of an older design:

Back to School Blog Tour


I am participating in the Back to School Blog Tour this week, sponsored by Living My MoMent and The Work At Home Woman.

We go back to school early here, and all 3 of my boys are well into the first few weeks of the new year.  My oldest son is a 3rd grader, my middle son is a 1st grader, and my youngest son is in PreK this year.  In addition to running my stationery & card business from home, I returned to the classroom last year as a substitute teacher, and I work at the older boys’ school anywhere from 1-5 days/week.  These past few weeks, I have had a lot of sub jobs, so its been very hectic and busy getting into the school routine while trying get 3 kids ready to go to 2 different schools and hustle out the door! (to say the least!)

When I started my business, my goal was to develop products that I would use, and I truly do!  As I have posted numerous times, I could not live without my excuse pads and school envelopes.  I have a few excuse pads stashed in different places because when I am subbing, I use them to let my sons’ teachers know where I will be in the building and how they are getting home.  Right now, I am using the rainbow name pads, and I am working on some new designs for their envelopes to use this year.


If you are stopping by for the first time by means of the Back to School Blog Tour, I hope you enjoyed your visit—my blog is mainly a place where I showcase new products, special events, and custom designs.  Please be sure to stop by my main website & poke around!  I hope you will come back again!  I am getting ready to do a giveaway for Facebook fans of some of my favorite back to school goodies, so be sure to fan my page.

Rainbow Name Excuse Pads, Take Two

These pads are a result of a recent order in which the customer wanted a little customization on the rainbow excuse pads.  She wanted to have individual pads for each child, and I suggested using a different color combination for each so that it was easy to grab the right pad quickly when needing to scribble a note to school!

Get yours HERE!

More Cute Owls & Summer Savings!

How cute are these? I want some for me, but somehow, I don't think my sons would want to carry these in to school this year... You can find them HERE though!

It's been awhile since I have posted--summer with the kids home has been busy, and I have been trying to soak up as much time with the boys while they are home as possible. ♥ I do have more new products to share with you soon, and I have a little giveaway planned as well...

This week has been super HOT around here. I missed posting a coupon code to celebrate the Fourth, so I have one for you now. Use the code "sizzle" (no quotation marks) for the rest of July to save 10% on any order over $15.
