August 1-15, 2018: 20% off sale on all Technique Junkies stamps

Be sure to check out all of their new releases and holiday stamps too. The sale will include our in-stock stamps, plus all of the stamps on their website:

Also, as an added bonus, if you would like to order any stencils that are on the Technique Junkies website, we will be placing an order from It’s A Colorful Life Stencils (as all stencils shown on Technique Junkies are from It’s A Colorful Life).

In order to qualify for the 20% discount, all stamp and stencil orders must be turned in and pre-paid by August 15, 2018.  There are order forms available at the store, as we have to place one big order. This order is only for stamps and stencils as they do not discount the other vendor products on the website.


ART GONE WILD now includes Art Gone Wild, Darcie’s, Inky Antics, Mason Row, Northwoods Stamps, Stampers Anonymous and Verses Rubber Stamps. All of these wonderful companies have now combined under the Art Gone Wild family of stamp companies. In conjunction with Claudia’s Northwoods Coloring Class in August, we will be taking orders from all of these stamp companies. 

We will be taking pre-paid orders from August 16-25, 2018 and are offering a 20% discount to all class participants and 10% off to all other customers to celebrate our new vendor relationship. Don’t forget to order your Northwoods Watercolor Paper as well for more water coloring at home.

We specialize in Iris Folding!

We have new Iris folding designs!

Iris Folding is a technique where folded strips of colored or patterned paper are layered in a spiral pattern behind a cut-out pattern or aperture. It is called Iris Folding because it resembles the iris of a camera. We have loads of kits and patterns!  Come in and we will show you how to do it! It's easy!

"Excellent selection of patterns for iris folding cards!!!! If you love to iris fold it is worth the trip!!" - Eva
