Personalized Ink Stamps

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

tiny prints personalized stamps

Tiny Prints week at Sweet Peas & Stilettos continues with another great daily steal of a deal. All day today you can save 35% OFF Stamps & Embossers. I know you probably get a bunch of those free stickers in the mail with your address printed on them. I am not sure why so many people send those?? Anyhow, those are fine to use on bills, but these custom ink stamps are great on letters and invitations. You can pick one up to use on your holiday cards and then continue to use it all year long. And you don’t just have to make address stamps…how about one with your initial that you can use in books or on notepaper? And there is something very historic and beautiful about embossing. I haven’t used an embosser in a million years, it might be kind of fun to actually have one for my family. Go take a look and see what you think for yourself. They are both certainly great personalized holiday gifts. Keep on saving and I’ll have another great Tiny Prints deal for you tomorrow!

Oh one more thing – the promo code to save on the stamps and embossers is: CYBER1128 and the deal expires tonight. Wednesday, 11/28/12, at 11:59 pm PST.

Personalized Notebooks

Monday, November 26th, 2012

Tiny Prints week on Sweet Peas & Stilettos continues with another fabulous daily deal. Today it is all about notebooks and they are 35% OFF all day today. Yes yes yes – I know we all have our iPhone and great online calendars and organizational tools, but I will be the first to admit that there is just something about paper, and pulling out a pen, and jotting down notes with real ink. These personalized notebooks from Tiny Prints are 5 x 8 inches so they should fit right into your tote bag. They also make great gifts for a wide variety of people. Here are a few ideas:

1) For children, you can create a book in their school colors and use a cute picture of your child with her best friends.

2) Grandma (or mom or your mother-in-law) would love a notebook with an adorable picture of her grandchildren.

3) Make notebooks for your girlfriends too. You don’t have to use a photo of people, maybe a picture of the beach, your favorite flowers, a bottle of wine, a cupcake, or your favorite pair of shoes.

4) And don’t forget to make a notebook for yourself!!

The 35% OFF sale ends tonight at midnight PST.

One of my favorite online shopping destinations has just gotten a little facelift & tummy tuck of sorts, just in time for the holidays. Layla Grace is a fabulous place to shop for holiday gifts and also happens to be a great place to pick up little treasures for yourself. Layla Grayce recently launched their newly redesigned website so now it is better than ever. They’ve added some new bells and whistles like customer reviews and a brand new design board, where you can mix and match different products and perfect your look before you purchase. You simply drag the product over to this little widget on the side of the screen. You can also create your own ‘I love this’ list which comes in super handy when you are picking out Christmas presents.  Luckily they have kept their great mix of products in every price range – from furniture & decor to table top, baby items, personalized gifts and more. Be sure to visit the newly designed Layla Grayce website today and get a head start on your holiday shopping.

From baby showers and birthday parties to Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations – you will find a wonderful selection of decorations to make your party one of a kind.  I know that there are a number of you out there who have the time, energy and creative know-how to make wonderful DIY decorations, but then there are the rest of us who like to leave it up to the pros.

They have thought of everything and you can buy them all together in different party packages. They are adding more party themes regularly so check back often.

Kate Spade Paperless Post

I love paper and I love stationery. I have been tempted many many times to frame all of my favorite note cards and hang them in my office. In fact I have been know to buy note cards to do just that. Some day I will actually get organized and will buy the frames and get out the hammer and nails to make it happen.

Even though I love paper – I also love Paperless Post and the way they have transformed digital communication. Part of the vision of Paperless Post is that “Communication is an extension of personal style: how you say something is often as important as what’s being said.” It is so true! A simple note on a fabulous card can make such a powerful statement. An email does not have to be so darn boring and there is so much more you can do than simply change your font.

One of the latest designers to partner with Paperless Post is Kate Spade New York. There are now 70+ designs to choose from to make you online correspondence stand out from the crowd. Add a little flair to all of your emails and check out the fantastic online stationery designs from Kate Spade. You can even get a sneak peek at their holiday cards too…

photo-christmas-cards-2012-stylish-greetings

I can’t believe I am posting anything about Christmas or the holidays in September because it really goes against everything I believe about the holidays. I am the first to admit I freaked out when I saw Christmas lights at Target last week! I am trying to be a little more organized and on top of things this year so I have been busy updating and creating some new pages on Sweet Peas & Stilettos to feature all of the fabulous holiday cards and invitations I can find and have just been having so much fun. I have to tell you, the selection of cards is better than ever this year.

So you won’t be too overwhelmed – I have scoured all of my favorite sites and pulled together my favorites. Come take a look at the Photo Christmas Cards 2012, Modern Holiday Cards, Photo Hanukkah Cards and Holiday Party Invitations.
