I know that not everyone is hooked on QuicKutz. Some may not even know what it is, or want to spend the money, but I have to tell you ... the things that you can do with it can be pretty amazing. Here at the Turtle we have a QuicKutz club called QuicKutz Anonymous. You don't have to be a "gotta have everything as soon as it comes out" kind of scrapper or QK user to enjoy this class. Usually the QA classes run on Saturdays, but Lori had plans today so she put the ladies through their paces last night. Their creations were amazing!! Everyone was given "homework" ... and it wasn't complicated. Bring 20 copies of a summer recipe, printed portrait, and a sample of your recipe if you can. Sounds simple, right? Well, there was concern over what colour and whether to decorate or not. Hey, she could have asked everyone to HANDWRITE it. She didn't do that.
Last night was all about celebrating summer. Using the Canadian Cookie Cutter set and Exotic Island font, everyone created an I Am Canadian layout for their Canada Day pictures. To add to Canada Day celebrations, everyone created an invitation card for a BBQ, menu pockets that will also hold the plastic fork and knife wrapped in a serviette, and Shrinky Dink accents that could be used as accents for summer pages, or to make your own glass charms .
See what you missed??? Okay, maybe you will have to come into the store to actually "see" what you missed but you get the idea.
These classes are open to QA members only and are always a surprise. You have very little idea what is coming. Lori is now planning the next two months of classes. QA membership also gives you 10% off your QuicKutz purchases (unless there is a better sale) and a free single cut die of our choice, or other item if there isn't a single cut die that month. We try to choose a versatile die from that month's release.
QA isn't the only reason to look at QuicKutz, though. This month QK is offering GREAT prices. For the month of June, the Squeeze tool is just $29.99. That's about 6 packs of stickers! And you can cut all the "a"s and "e"s and "m"s that you need. You aren't limited to one or two before you invest in another package. The tool comes in three colours, each with its own die set. The pink tool comes with the font Moxie, the black tool comes with the font Metro and the purple tool has basic shapes. The font alone is worth $72. The Revolution is on sale for $79.99 ... another great buy. The Revolution allows you to cut not only the 4" dies that were created for it, but the 2" dies as well. As you become more adventuresome, you can look at the 12" cutting deck, ideal for cutting borders or cutting out to use reverse image.
We're just waiting on our shipment of tools. We were expecting to have them later today but no such luck. Hopefully we will have them by next weekend, so you can always call and reserve one. Okay. I think I've rambled enough for today. Time to let you get back to life.
