Let’s get started on today’s items!

First on our list for today is Gracious Giftables.  The holidays are coming up, and gift giving can be hard!  But, everyone loves a gift card to his or her favorite store! You can add a personal touch by creating a beautiful package for all your gift cards; no plain envelopes here!  You’re going to get holders for 24 gift cards, in four different styles and six different colors! Gracious Giftables also contains 80 embellishments! If you’re looking for the perfect stocking stuffer we have you covered with these!




We know that you sometimes need a quick gift for everyday gifting occasions. Guess what? The Gracious Giftables Everyday set is also available! This set includes 24 gift card holders in four different styles too!  These easy to make holders are held closed by a clear acetate band that you can top with the embellishment of your choosing.  Now that is personalization!

When you think about the holidays…shiny tinsel, twinkling lights and other shimmering images come to mind.  Your die cut embellishments can now be equally as festive! Our partnership with Thermo Web brings you an exciting way to add shiny foil to anything without a laminating machine! No heat required! The Deco Foil Christmas bundle lets you easily apply five different holiday colored foils to any project.  The set includes red, green, gold, silver and copper foil (25 total sheets), a Deco Foil adhesive pen and 8 sheets of Easy Cut Adhesive sheets.



Want to add flocking to your projects? Our HSN exclusive Deco Flock kit allows you to add luxurious flocking to your die cuts, using foam adhesive and your Cuttlebug! The velvety flocking comes in 2 colorways. There are 5 colors in our everyday palette — red, pink, blue, green and gold and 5 colors in our Christmas palette — 2 reds, green, silver, and gold.  Choose from either palette and receive 15 sheets of flocking and 8 sheets of foam transfer adhesive.
