Local Warehouse Sale Fun!

First in line to shop our Warehouse Sale!

Doors opened at 10am on Saturday. We were still doing last minute mark-downs on products when the early shoppers started lining up outside!

Image blurred to protect the 'innocent' shoppers who were really just out 'picking up groceries'. LOL!

We emailed local customers about the sale and asked for RSVP's. I received one response asking if we were ready for the early lines and the crowds...

Customers parked where they could during our Warehouse Sale

A HUGE thank you to all of you who came out to visit us! Your patience at check-out was truly amazing! You shared shopping bags, boxes and whatever else we could find to carry items! We heard a lot of you begin to talk while in line (eating and drinking) 'meeting' long time Message Board chatters face to face.

The ACOT staff truly had a blast!
We have the BEST customer in the world!

Customers came from Ohio, Illinois and all over Michigan. Incredible! Kristin and Cathy gave tours of the warehouse. We were asked many times if/when we'll open up the warehouse for another sale. I have a feeling we'll be doing it again soon!

Next time--the lines will be shorter and move a lot faster! Promise!

Again, thank you for coming out. We can't wait to do it again!

If you would like to be notified of our next local warehouse sale, be sure to update your email newsletter preferences in your account.

Until next time...

(aka: shaped templates, masking templates or clipping masks)
and how you can incorporate this technique into your layout.

Fishin' For That Perfect Paper?

Let's face it. If you have a hunter or a fisher in your life
--or if you ARE the hunter or the one who loves to fish--
it can be incredibly challenging to find that perfectly themed paper that
sets your scrapbooking layout apart from the rest.

You've probably had to cut out images from your kid's coloring books or used papers that were really designed for scuba diving just to make it work!

Well all of that is a thing of the past thanks to Adornit with Carolee's
Gone Fishing line!

'Fishing Adventure' 12"x12" heavy weight sheet

Gone Fishing line Just In!

'Caught' 12"x12" heavy weight sheet

Perfect timing to scrap those quality moments you'll be experiencing this
Father's Day!

Quantities are limited.

This line will disappear fast. Don't miss it!
