Black Friday…on Monday…Priceless!

Yep, my Black Friday deals start on Monday…today!

Stampin’ Up! started the tradition a couple of years ago of starting Black Friday, aka Online Extravaganza on the Monday of Thanksgiving week, instead of the Friday after. Isn’t that the best??!!

Some of the specials are only available today, November 21 and a few are only available on Monday, November 28. All the others are available for the full week…woo hoo!

Click here to see all the deals. I’ve created a pdf with all of them so you can print it out and create your shopping list. You can go to my online store with list in hand and bada bing bada boom…done!

Here are a couple of my favorite projects using some of the sale items (the enamel shapes and Delicate Ornaments Thinlets Dies bundles are offered at a 35 and 20% discount!)…with the detailed instructions and measurements below you can easily create a beautiful Christmas card and save money!
