Facebook Live Sale

Our first Facebook Live Sale was such a success we are having another one. We did not expect the overwhelming response from our customers the first time. So, we now know what to do to streamline the sale and get you the best deals and products as soon as possible. We will provide instructions and more information prior to the sale. Mark your calendars for another fun night of shopping from your home.


Forget Black Friday – – this season, shop local and shop small!  Please set aside some time to visit area businesses this season.  You’ll be sure to find unique items and a level of personal service that only independent businesses can provide.

The Paper Forest will be celebrating Small Business Saturday with giveaways, discounts and more!  Watch for updates about special offers that will be available for one day only – – you won’t want to miss out!

Easier Than Trying to Catch a Leprechaun

It’s time again for our own version of “March Madness”!  We LOVE St. Patrick’s Day and want to celebrate it BIG.  How big?  Well, for starters, how about all kinds of new collections arriving soon?  Not exciting enough?  Okay – – how about a sale so amazing you’ll think you found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow?!?!  From March 3 – March 17, EVERYTHING in the store is 10% off.  Yes, everything!  That even means an ADDITIONAL 10% off items already discounted!  See?  You don’t have to worry about chasing those sneaky little leprechauns!

Remember, we are still receiving new products that were pre-ordered from the CHA Mega Show.  Several anxiously-awaited collections are due to arrive THIS WEEK:

  • “On Stage” by Kaisercraft
  • “Furry Friends” by Kaisercraft
  • “Adrift” by Basic Grey
  • “Home Sweet Home” by Graphic 45

Unfortunately, many of our vendors are experiencing delays in getting products to market.  All west coast US ports have been embroiled in a longshoremen labor dispute for nine months. The work slowdowns and closures are impacting all sectors of the US economy, crafts included. The lack of supply of raw materials or finished goods is a significant issue for many of the brands we carry. The delay in getting new products and the extended backorder delays on restock items is every bit as frustrating for us as it is for you!  Hopefully this can be resolved soon, for everyone’s sake.  In the meantime, please know that we are also proud to offer many products made in the USA that are in no way affected by the dispute.  Authentique Paper, for example, continues to provide top-quality US made products that are in stock and readily available!  As a premier retailer for Authentique, we receive new collections from them every month.  The next two collections that we will receive in the coming weeks are “Durable” and “Playful”.  These are both excellent collections for the men & boys in your life, as well as just everyday fun scrapbook pages, cards and other projects.  We’ll let you know when these new collections arrive!

So spread the word, put on your best green outfit and come enjoy the Lucky Days Sale from now until March 17th!

Save on Silhouette electronic cutting machines!

If you’ve been waiting for the right time to purchase a Cameo or Portrait electronic cutting machine from Silhouette, your wait is over!  Now through October 18, you can get either of these amazing machines at an incredible price!  We cannot even show you the price here online – you have to come in and ask about this special offer.


The Cameo is an incredible value even at full price for all that it can do.  The creative possibilities are endless!  Cut vinyl, paper, fabric and more!  You can also etch glass, make your own custom stamps and create custom shirts, bags & more with heat transfer.  Party decorations? Make your own and have coordinating invitations, guest favors and thank you notes!

The Portrait is the little sibling to Cameo, with all the same functions in a smaller, portable package!  Cut materials up to 9″ wide with this compact machine that weighs roughly 3 lbs.  A shoulder tote is available to make carrying your Portrait & laptop computer a breeze!

In addition to the thousands and thousands of available cut files & images from Silhouette, both of these machines will also cut True Type fonts and image files available such as SVG.  You can even draw an original image, snap a picture with your phone and cut it out or draw it with the machine’s ink pen function!  There truly is no end to what you can create with Silhouette.

Sale prices will be good through October 18 only.  Pre-paid orders will be accepted if we run out of stock during the promotion.

Making Room, Making Plans & Making Deals!

This is the time of year when all the paper craft industry companies begin showing their new designs and upcoming releases.  It’s always so much fun to preview all the great products, design collections and ideas!  It’s also always a BIG challenge to decide what to bring in to the store!  There is only so much space, after all!

So while we make our selections for all the new products for fall and winter, we have a lot of planning to do.  Making room requires rearranging and making decisions about not only what we will begin carrying, but also sometimes what we will not carry going forward.  For example, we will soon be stocking Tombow Dual Tip Markers in  a wide range of colors, along with blending kits and watercolor paper.  Watch for news about the arrival of our new stock of Tombow, as well as classes on how to use them!

At the same time, we’ve place all remaining Spectrum Noir markers on sale at 50% off!  We will no longer be stocking these pens, but we will continue to serve our customers who’ve purchased them in the past.  If you need refills, replacements or other items for your Spectrum pens, we can order those for you.  Stop in soon to pick up color sets from what we have left – they are going fast.

Watch for sneak peeks of some of the paper collections we’ve pre-ordered so far – those will be posted all next week!  Of course, we still have MANY products to review and select from, too!  The most important thing we always consider when making product buying decisions is YOU – our customer!  That’s why we offer you the chance to give your input on some of the products we are looking at.  Come in to see some samples of paper collections right now from BoBunny and Kaisercraft.  Let us know what you think!  Love it, hate it – we want to hear from you!

Our regular customers also know by now that when we start talking about NEW products, that also means existing items going on sale!  As we begin to make room for all these amazing new releases, stop by to see the latest great deals and discounts!

Since we know many of you follow blogs and watch for updates from your own favorite companies, if you have seen a sneak peek of something that you just can’t wait to see in person, tell us about it!  Leave us a comment about any new or upcoming release you’d like to see in our store and tell us why you love it!
