Filed under Black Friday Sale 2011, Giveaways, Sale

Note: most of the links on this post no longer work, as we moved to a new Web site in 2018. But you can try searching on the same names (as links below) on the new site.

Hey, it’s Saturday of the 4-day “Black Friday” sale! And today’s theme is Sunflowers.

If you order on Saturday you’ll automatically be entered in the drawing for the Saturday kit. More info on all the gifts & freebies going on during the sale is here.

Note: all the indented items below are included in the Giveaway Kit. There are some additional (related) things just put on sale that are not in the Giveaway Kit (down at the bottom of this page). Some of the additional sale items are new, too!

New & On Sale
(and included in the Giveaway Kit)

Tuscan Sunflowers File Folder
New & on Sale! Standard (US) manila folder size. Printed front and back (and inside) with colorful designs to add some caffeine to your organizing. You’ll receive a random pick of tab location (left, center or right).

Floral Mask Swatchbooks
(2 designs but only Floral in kit)
New & on Sale! Five die-cut, clear, flexible plastic masks/pages per swatchbooks (kind of the inverse of a stencil as you’ll be leaving the unpainted design behind when you remove the mask). These masks do not come with adhesive on the back. Simply hold down (or spray with repositionable adhesive) and apply inks, paints, sprays, or a variety of other mediums over the mask. The masks are clear, so you are easily able to see how much ink you are applying to the desired area.

(2 colors but only light sapphire in kit)
New & on Sale! Matte glass leaves in amethyst or light sapphire, with built-in loop and jump ring. Imported from the Czech Republic. Approx. 16mm long.

Sunflowers Collage Sheet
(Now available as a digital download, too!)
There was once a beautiful water-nymph called Clytie who fell in love with Helios, the God of the Sun. She was so much in love that she would sit on the grass and gaze up at the sun all day long but Helios, in his travels, looked over the world and never once did he see Clytie.

The other Gods took pity on her and turned her into a flower. Her legs became the sunflower’s stem, her face became the flower and her golden hair the petals.

Today, in the form of a sunflower, Clytie still stares up at her love and this is why the sunflower’s face always turns to follow the path of the sun.
