Newsletter #184 - June 20, 2013

Hi!  Everyone,
We've reached the 1 year anniversary of the closing of the physical retail Photo Craft store in Kaimuki.  While in some ways it feels like just a short time ago, in many other ways it also feels like a long time ago.  We definitely miss the store and the great customers that we had.  Crafters are such a giving group of people, and our lives were greatly enriched by the friendships that we made through Photo Craft.

However, the flip side to this bittersweet occasion is that we are also celebrating the 1st year of being actively online.  It has certainly been a learning process to re-grow the business on the internet.  I've made some good progress, but there's a lot to still implement to generate more traffic to the site.  (If you like the site, please tell your crafting friends.)  Plus, it's a continuous process, so the work is never done.

Anyway, to mark this one year anniversary, I am making the biggest sale ever on the  website.   I am putting all of the wafer cutting dies on sale.   This is 200 crafting products of  the 500 products on the website!  This includes dies by Memory Box, Poppy Stamps, Cottage Cutz, Dee's Distinctively, Spellbinders, Sizzix, Cuttlebug, Marianne Designs, Die-Versions, Joy! Crafts, and of course our own line of WikiCAPS.  I am calling this sale the:

                        "2 Die For" 30% Off Sale!

Just purchase a minimum of any two dies (individual or sets) and get 30% Off of the regular price.  As an added bonus, just type in this discount code when you place an order online: FreeS&H and get a $2.20 credit to offset the S&H for the mailing of two items purchased.  Please be sure to type it in as shown.  It is case-sensitive. This sale is good for June 21st, Friday, through July 7th, Saturday.   Limited to the stock on hand, so please shop early for the best selection!

As I mentioned in the previous newsletter, this newsletter was the main Photo Craft vehicle for keeping in touch with our customers, to promote and educate about the latest crafting products and techniques.  However, this format is entirely lacking in the visuals of photos, images, and videos of the actual craft projects.  So to dramatically improve this area, I have been working on a Facebook account for Photo Craft with a growing photo gallery of paper craft creations, just recently re-vamped the blog at, and re-started doing more YouTube videos.

The Facebook account is at:  Photo Craft's Facebook 

The YouTubes are at:  BriansPhotoCraft  

I think that I finally learned how to make these highlighted text areas as functional hot buttons, so you can just click on them to go directly to the links.

The webstore at:  Photo Craft's All Natural Accents Website   now has 500 crafting items.  We are featuring the newest releases of the locally designed stamps from Sister Stamps and Dandelion Designs.  We have one of the largest selections of wafer dies on numerous brands.  Plus, of course, we are expanding our own line of WikiC.A.P.S. dies and clear stamps, and the All Natural Accents paper flowers and paper leaves.  You'll see that I'm doing a lot more with new, larger flowers and leaves.

I'm pretty sure that this will be the last email newsletter through this Yahoo group.  So if you haven't visited us lately (On the Internet), please check out some of these links.  I think everyone will be pleased that it is much more visual now.

Happy Crafting!

Brian - Photo Craft / All Natural Accents / WikiC.A.P.S.
