A lot of you have mentioned that you appreciate when I share info on good deals. Well, Amazon is having MAJOR deals on July 15 (Wednesday) – for Prime members. It is a day of deals… and they are promising it will be better than Black Friday.
I am a big fan of Amazon Prime. The fast (2-day) and free shipping is what won me over. I also enjoy Amazon Instant Video which allows you to watch great movies and TV shows. I have crunched the numbers and found that the yearly fee is definitely worth it – I get my money’s worth and then some. You can also try it free for 30-days. Just head HERE.

Here are some things I would recommend checking out if you will be shopping. (I am not sure if these things will be on sale – and most are not high ticket items – but it is worth checking it out to see!)
(1.) Swingline Guillotine Paper Trimmer – In the past I have not been a fan of guillotine trimmers for safely reasons. However, I decided to get one and keep it out of reach from the kids. After trying many, I decided that this one is my favorite. I recommend it!
(2.) 3M Scotch Foam Tape – I highly recommend this foam tape. There are many other off-brands out there that have a lower price. But I have tried them and they are so hard to work with (icky-sticky and stretchy and cheap). I recommend going with the good stuff and this is a good price!
(3.) Wink of Stella – Yep. You need one. Actually, more than one. (They do run out eventually. I have several spares.) This shimmer pen offers a great finishing touch to any card.
(4.) Copic Multiliner Pen Set – I will admit – I resisted getting this set for a long time. I finally caved and I am so glad I did. These black pens are great for darkening stamp lines and adding finishing touches. I like the tip options available in this set.
(5.) Tombow Stamp Runner Refills – There are a few adhesives out there that I like, but I always go back to the Tombow Stamp Runner. This price is great for stocking up on some spares.
(6.) Padded Envelopes – These are the padded envelopes I use for mailing any cards that have a bit of bulk to them or need a bit of extra care. Padded envelopes can be very pricey at stores, so this price is awesome. They aren’t the best of quality but I think they work really well and serve their purpose at a great price. I have used them for months now and will be getting more.
(7.) Canon Vixia Video Camera – I am often asked what video camera I use… and I love this bad boy. He isn’t cheap, but I have been happy with him! (However, if you are just starting out I would recommend using something simple – even an iPhone. There is no need for a fancy camera.)
(8.) iPhone Temperd Glass Screen Protector – I recently cracked the screen on my iPhone. Both the the AT&T and Apple stores told me that it wouldn’t have happened if I had been using this. So I now have one of these suckers on my screen!
(9.) Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens – I am crossing my fingers that these will be on sale so that you all can catch a deal on them. They are so much fun to play with!
(10.) Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor – I also enjoy using this watercolor medium. The colors are gorgeous and bold and creamy. Be sure to get the biggest set (36) because it includes white and metallics. (I usually don’t think it is necessary to have the “biggest” sets of coloring mediums, but I do recommend it here.)
(11.) Interdesign Storage Bin – I use this container for my stamp storage and much more. Can’t recommend it enough.
(12.) Go Pro – I have mentioned this one before, but this camera is one of the coolest things I have ever seen. So much fun for travel, underwater and more. In fact, HERE is a video of a shark that we captured with our Go Pro.
(13.) Brother Label Maker – I will admit – I bought two of these. I use it so much and all over my house! You can also stock up on refills if they are on sale.
Have fun shopping!
