Exclusive PhotoPlay Scrapbook Bundles

Every once in awhile I run across a product that I just fall in love with immediately. Well, I fell in love with pretty much the entire product collection by PhotoPlay. I’m not sure how long they have been around, but I don’t think it’s been very long; I just found them recently. The collection that I saw first was O’ Canada by Becky Fleck. The moose and the other adorable animals made me take a second look and research to find out where I could get this collection. I soon found that I loved all their paper collections and I thought our customers would love them too! To make it easy to get the entire collection we have made exclusive PhotoPlay scrapbook bundles for each of the collections we carry. Most bundles will include a 12″ x 12″ Collection Pack, a set of die cuts, a stamp set, and a die set. Sometimes the bundles have different products, it just depends on what is released with each set. The bundles offer you a convenient shopping solution and a better price! Continue reading “Exclusive PhotoPlay Scrapbook Bundles” »
