Better Than Acrylic - PreOrder Information & A Simple Project

First here is a very simple snowflake cut from the Joys of the Season Cricut cartridge and heat embossed for sparkle. 
I Love how nice and clean all the details of the snowflake cut.  This snowflake was cut at 4", but I cut a much smaller one with the same great results.  I am telling you... this stuff cuts Beautifully on the Cricut.  
I have so many things I want to try using the BTA, but things have been so busy.  I haven't had as much time to play as I had hoped.  With trying to get ready for the holidays... I didn't pick the best time to launch this.

Also... I know I have been posting lots of snowy projects, but don't get stuck in the mindset of winter and snow.  How about a nice and frosty snow cone or a big glass of sparkly lemonade?  Or something a little more elegant such as a monogram page or card.  I bet a vinyl monogram would work beautifully on this.  I will have to try that...soon!  That's just a few more ideas and I bet you already have many more ideas for the Better Than Acrylic!

At last and without further ado... here is the information you have been waiting for.  If I missed something or you have a question please let me know.  My email is

There has been a small change from my last post... I  am having the Better Than Acrylic cut down to 12" x 12".  It will be easier for me to handle and will be a lot easier for shipping purposes as well.  I think most of you will be happy with this change and if not... I apologize in advance.

I will be placing the order on Tuesday November the 27th.  My goal is to be shipping preorders out  by Friday December 7th and at the latest... Monday the 10th.  

The Better Than Acrylic is $2.45 per 12" x 12" sheet with a 10 sheet minimum order.  You can order in any increment over the 10 sheet minimum.


I will do everything I can to get it to you as economical as possible.  I will be happy to ship USPS or Ups.

If you email me with the number of sheets you want and your zip code I will get a shipping quote for you via both carriers.

Another option is to combine orders with your friends and family and make the most of a large flat rate box via USPS.  A large flat rate box shipped within the U.S. is $15.45.  Insurance is optional.  There is also a flat rate box for international orders and I can get a price if anyone is interested.  

I will not charge any handling fees.

I did have to purchase the mailers so there will be a $1.25 charge for the mailer.  Unless you want to ship USPS in the Large Flat Rate box as those are free of charge from USPS.

If you ship via Ups your package is automatically insured up to $100.00.  Insurance via USPS runs $1.85 for packages valued up to $50.00.and $2.35 for packages valued over $50.00.

I am not going to require you to insure your package if you are in the U.S., but I highly recommend it.  If you choose not to insure... I will not be responsible for lost or damaged packages.  I would at minimum get delivery confirmation.  I think it runs about 0.75.

I will ship internationally, but will require the package to be insured.

If you are needing chipboard I still have it listed in the left sidebar of my blog and will be happy to combine shipping with the BTA.


You can pay via Paypal.

You can also send a cashiers check or money order via snail mail.

I do have a merchant account if you want to pay with Visa, MC or Discover.

Placing Order  

Email me at and let me know how many sheets of BTA you want and the zip code I will be shipping to.

I will then get you a shipping quote and will get you the best price possible.

Once you get the shipping quote and are ready to order... you will need to email me and let me know.  I will then send you an invoice.

Once payment is received your order will be locked in.

I know this is a lot of information.  Please feel free to email me with any questions at all.

Once again I will be placing the order on Tuesday after Thanksgiving.  Be sure to get your order in now so you can have it in time for Christmas.

Please Note:  As of this coming Tuesday evening ... I will be shutting the computer off so I can spend Thanksgiving with my family.  I will check back in on Sunday to answer any emails.    

  Have a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Sounds fab to me, this is one of the best deals for a specialty product out there. Thank you so much. Heading off to paypal now!

  2. I have bought your chipboard and I LOVE that thickness and have no doubt this item is amazing!
    Will you be adding a PayPal link to your blog later when I have more craft mulah available? lol!

  3. Hi Jen! I do plan to add a Paypal button. My only problem is determining the shipping since it's not flat rate. I need to see if I can add a shipping calculator. If you decide to order and don't see the button, just email me and I will get you fixed up. So glad you are happy with the chipboard! Thanks so much!


Thank you for stopping by. Your support means a lot! Happy crafting and have a wonderful day!
