Default Where to buy coluzzle templates locally?

I can't seem to find a place that carries them. Are there any chains or lss's that carry them or do most people order them online?

My local scrap store carries them. My Michaels and Joanns also carry them. If you get them at Mike's or Jo's, you can use a coupon.

Hope you find them.

Crafts Direct in Waite Park, MN seems to carry them ALL! The bad news is that when I was there in October, I wasn't interested in them. Our Michael's in Fargo, ND carries three different types, and one of them is on clearance. I haven't come across any at Hobby Lobby. Another LSS in Moorhead, MN carries maybe three or four.

The best prices: Creative Xpress. Even with shipping it's often cheaper. Sign up to get their email flyers; I've gotten some templates there VERY cheap!

Mike's and Jo's in my area has a limited selection. I was in MOJOR NEED of the oval companion so I got it at Jo's online 30% off with free shipping. I also picked up the long oval and companion a scallopped frame and funky squares...all hard to find locally.

I have gotten mine at Michael's in the past but the last few times i've went in there to look at them they are almost all gone and have been for a couple of months. All they had this past weekend was one alphabet set and nothing else...
They havent had the blade or refills since November when I needed a refill, I had to order the refill from Joanns.com.
I havent asked at Michaels if they are getting rid of them totally but it sure looks like it at my local Michaels anyway...

The Michaels in Regina carried a wide selection of their 'vanilla' templates (no Patti-Wack, no Stampendous card templates, no new ones like the bookplates or runway alpha). My LSS had a nice little selection of the newer templates at standard pricing. If CreativExpress hadn't had a big sale on Coluzzle stuff a while back I would have happily gotten fewer templates for the same price from my LSS, but as it was I feel I got a super deal on Coluzzle templates and Simply Chic stamps by purchasing from CreativExpress online.

So, to answer your question, some LSSs are going to the trouble of carrying Coluzzle templates in their stores, and it is good to support them when they carry what you want at reasonable prices. However, I find a larger selection of templates at competitive pricing online (ie CreativExpress, CoolGear), and it's just a matter of choosing the e-store with the best shipping options for me.

Maybe you already knew this, but if memory serves me right, Create Xpress is owned and operated by Provo Craft who makes the coluzzle, etc.

Default Ask LSS

I couldn't find the companion set for the circle and oval so I asked my LSS. They kindly ordered it for me. Most LSS are very helpful when they know what we want.
