We’re Closing the Store – HUGE Discounts!

Yes, that is right. We’ve decided with how hectic our lives our right now that we’ll be closing the store. I am going to continue to sell my stencils and texture tools, but the resale part of the store is going to be closing.

Intoxicating Arts will transform into a place where you can get cardmaking video tutorials, buy stencils, learn techniques on blog posts, and I may occasionally post things for sale if I get a special buy on them. In example, last year I got MINC Mini machines on a special buy so I got some and stopped selling them when I sold out.

To be completely honest, my goal was to sell high quality crafting supplies at a super competitive price. That is exactly what I did but there’s very little money in that ( in fact, I’ve made no money because I’ve invested so much in this business). There was a time when the store was booming but I just don’t have the time (Or I guess don’t want to sacrifice crafty and mommy time) to keep it up to get it where it needs to be in order to be profitable.

I’m saddened but excited at the same time. Once I have this excess inventory gone ,not only will I have an entire room freed up in my house, but I will have more creative freedom and I hope to expand my laser cut lines and make more videos. It’s where my heart wants me to be.

OK, so here’s the deal! We already have all of our items at 15-23& off. That’s a great deal as always, but we are trying to move some product here so we have increased the discounts depending on how much you buy. These discounts are ON TOP OF the already discounted prices. Remember, we have $5.00 flat rate shipping on all orders over $40.00.

Here are the promos that we have going right now:

EXTRA 5% OFF WHEN YOU BUY 2 OR MORE OF ANYTHING (MIX AND MATCH!)

EXTRA 10% OFF WHEN YOU BUY 4 OR MORE OF ANYTHING (MIX AND MATCH!)

EXTRA 15% OFF WHEN YOU BUY 5 OR MORE OF ANYTHING (MIX AND MATCH!)

EXTRA 20% OFF WHEN YOU BUY 6 OR MORE OF ANYTHING (MIX AND MATCH!)

+ FREE 2 DAY SHIPPING ON ORDERS OVER $75.00

NO COUPON CODE REQUIRED

So, the more you buy, the more you save. This applies to every item in our store. We have some brand new items that are super hot right now and you can get this discount on those items. We even have some new Ranger/ Tim Holtz products coming and we’ll be discounting those when they come in.

Creativation – CHA – 2017

I had the opportunity to go to Creativation yesterday and I can tell you that it’s everything you think it would be. Admittedly, I wish I could go for multiple days and next time I will sign up earlier so I can take some classes. We didn’t make it to all the booths that we wanted to because it’s a big event but we did find some awesome NEW things coming out in the next few months!

20170122_134118

OK, not the best pic of me, but it had to be done! 

20170122_134909

We found these gnomes and couldn’t resist the photo op! 

20170122_140933

When I saw Finnabair (Anna Dabrowska) she was the first “craft celebrity” I had seen in person. So naturally I creeper stalked and took a photo from a weird angle while my Mom and BFF urged me to just go say hi!

20170122_140951

Some lovely work in the Prima booth (assuming it’s Anna’s.)

20170122_143515

Next craft celebrity I ran into was Dina Wakely! I was again star struck but this time I talked to her and asked a few questions. She has some great products coming out that Intoxicating Arts will be carrying. Don’t forget we already carry her paints and other products! P.S. I did not realize how FUNNY Dina is! I didn’t want to leave but her voice was starting to give out on her and we had a lot of the show left to do.

20170122_142845

How cute are these little guys?! You can see them next to a full size archival ink. They are adorable minis. I love that they kept the rectangle shape too. We will be stocking these along with the full size ones that we already carry.

20170122_145111

Of course you find what you are looking for when you’re not looking! We thought we would find Tim in the Ranger booth but he has products throughout the show and we stumbled upon him at his Ideaology booth. Yes, he is super nice and happy in person too! 

20170122_145632

Tim Holtz art found in the Sizzix booth. If you guys want these dies, you need to let me know! 

20170122_145649

More awesome houses

20170122_155152

We made our way to the Therm-o-web booth where Gina K was exhibiting her new line. These products will be shipping in March and we will be carrying a pretty good chunk of the line (including her to die for paper and luxurious ribbons!) She made this entire card using only products she’s collaborated with therm-o-web with. ( I asked for the card and she let me have it!) If you love her style of clean and simple cards and you have been wanting to get in on the foil craze, you will want to stay tuned.

20170122_151850

Alte New is staying true to their brand with buildable stamps. I was really drawn to this one.

20170122_165900

Waffle Flower wowed with some unique stamp sets. They have these ones along with buildable ones that look like cross stitch! 

20170122_165904

This stamp set caught my eyes because I was thinking of mixed media cards. The lady working the booth showed me that it actually creates a marble pattern! How awesome! 

20170122_101412

It’s hard to tell in the picture, but these are some truly amazing stamps! As you pull the black lines over the images they become animated. It’s just like a children’s book I bought my daughter.

20170122_101248

These super cool embossing folders by Sizzix also cut in the middle to make a shaker card. It does it all in one pass. Genius! 

20170122_171147

Towards the end of the day were were wandering around trying to find Lawn Fawn ( we forgot our map in the car, oops!) and we happened to walk by the Ranger booth and BAM! I saw Wendy Vecchi, Christine from Scraptime and Dyan Reaveley. I didn’t have a chance to say hi to the others because they walked off, but I did get to talk to Dyan for a little bit and let her know how much I enjoy using and selling her products.

Ashley and I next to the Graphic 45 booth!

I was very glad to get to go to the show this year since it was moved to Phoenix. I took more pictures and saw even more awesome products. You will see some new things in the store in the coming months! I will make sure to do blog posts to update.

P.S. thanks for sticking with me. I now have a 4.5 month old and it’s tough to keep up when you also work full time plus have a side business. I’m trying to keep it all going because I love crafting and I love selling these products. Never give up on your daydream, right!?
