Limelight Papercrafts BIG NEWS

If you are a newsletter subscriber, you'll get your newsletter soon, but I wanted to post some big news here on the blog so that everyone has access now! (I have to send the newsletters out in four separate waves over a four-hour period.)

It is bittersweet that I am announcing to you today that Limelight Papercrafts will be closing. While I have loved every minute of serving our customers, I will be making some personal (and wonderful!) changes in my life that will require this closing. Many of the items in the store are already discounted (anywhere from 20-50% off...and some patterned paper even moreso!), and we will continue to discount products until we sell out. Obviously, the earlier you shop, the better the selection will be! We will keep you posted of the new sales through the newsletter and our blog!

STORE CLOSING SALES (while supplies last):
*Unity Stamps 25% off (Suzi Blu stamps are $8.25 each!)!
*Stampendous stamps all AT LEAST 35% off!
*Cosmo Cricket Oh Joy! Crafting Kit ONLY $10!
*Lawn Fawn stamps all 25% off!
*Odd Bird Planet stamps all 50% off!!
*Stampendous Ice Cream Float Stamp ONLY $1
*Select 12x12 Patterned Paper Sheets $0.10 - $0.50!

We will continue hosting our Limelight Papercrafts Sketch and Product Challenge until we sell out!! Our next challenge will be posted on the Limelight Papercrafts creative blog on Thursday, November 25 (Thanksgiving!). We are using the sketch provided and focusing on incorporating polka dots, and one lucky winner will receive a Stickles Prize Pack! Just in time for holiday SPARKLE!!
