The Store is Closed.

Sadly, the store is now closed.  It was hard to push the button to take it all down this morning but I know it's what I need to do right now. Thank you so much to all the loyal customers, blog followers and supporters of Torendi. I was always so thrilled when a new order would show up in my email box and over the top for international shoppers as well. Of course I couldn't have done it with out the help of all the amazing Torendi Design Team members!  Please go to their blogs and become followers if you haven't already.  It would be a shame for any of their talents to go unnoticed! 

I am slowly adding Torendi items over to my new etsy shop! Double N Designs! Please be sure to come find me there and also on my personal blog.

If there is ever a Torendi item you need PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE send me an email and I will help you find it!

Farewell Torendi

Amy's "Good Luck" card suits today perfectly! Her use of the Sassafras Lass Indie Girl line is superb! She's even being featured on Moxie Fab World today!

Today, the Torendi Setters (design team) say good-bye to Torendi as Jenn embarks on new adventures! The store's 20% off sale will remain until Monday. She has an Etsy shop which will house the remaining Torendi items called Double N Designs.

Use code "moving" for 20% off until Monday!

Courtney's cards always amaze me! I could spot one of her cards from a mile away! This "good-bye November" card is a sweet note to end our Torendi journey on. She used Pink Paislee's Old School Papers and Sassafras Lass's Vintage Brooch!

Here's a fun card from Jenn. She used Torendi's exclusive Kawaii Rub-ons from EAD Designs to make this fun-loving card! The plum washi tape and the foam thickers are a fun accent. I think these Kawaii Rub-ons would be a hit on teen Valentine's Day cards, don't you?

Here's one of my favorite Torendi projects! I used a Pink Paislee adornment frame to create this wall decor. It's perfect for Valentine's Day! Check out my tutorial HERE!

On that note, thank you for tuning in every Friday for your Torendi round-ups! I will miss Torendi, Jenn, Amy, Courtney, and all of our past designers terribly...

Some Inspiration!

On the behalf of the Torendi Design Team, we are so sad to say good-bye! So, instead of good-bye let's say, "we'll see you around". We will be seeing you around the blogosphere!

Jenn has opened her Etsy store, Double N Designs, and everything at Torendi is 20% off by using code "moving"!

Here's some inspiration from the design team:

Amy's card is super duper cute! She's used Decole's Little Red Stamp Set to create this scene.

Speaking of scenes, Courtney always rocks the scenes, like in this card using the Sassafrass Lass Nerdy Bird Collection:

Here's another stunner from Courtney, this time using the Cosmo Cricket Pixielicious papers to create the fab silhouette lamp die cut:

Here's a card I created! I used some Sassafrass Lass Cherry Delicious Banner stickers, which is available in the Paris in Bloom Kit.

Happy Friday Crafty Friends!

Torendi is Closing! 20% off!

I am sad to announce that Torendi will be closing on Friday January 21st (that gives you 2 weeks to shop).  Due to some unforeseen family circumstances it's just something that had to be done.  I'm so glad I got the experience to run Torendi and wish I could continue to do it forever. BIG BIG thanks to all of our supporting customers, blog followers, and design teams members.  I couldn't have done it without you and I will be forever grateful.

With that being said all items in the store will be 20% of with coupon code:  moving

Why moving?  Well, I am going to try to slowly add Torendi items over to Etsy. It won't be the same as Torendi and it won't have all the items Torendi has now but it will be something if you still need your imported crafting fix! I would suggest stocking up now during the 20% off sale and paying the flat rate shipping fees if you have a big order! Some items will be marked up higher on Etsy to cover the fees they charge.

You will be able to find items on Etsy HERE

If you aren't already, you may want to sign up as a follower on my personal blog since that is what I will be using for updates about the new etsy shop and more.
