Written by Mike Tamplin Nov 27, 2015


I am excited to announce Semi Sweet Designs’ cookie cutter shop is now officially open for business!

Thank you all for being so patient as we get the shop up and running. My brother and I having been busy redesigning the blog to work seamlessly with the implementation of the new store. Our goals for this site were to have a cleaner layout and a brighter color palette, to establish a fully-secured site for accepting online credit card payments, and to create an overall better user experience. Now, after three months of planning, we are proud to say, “welcome to the shop!

Due to the initial, limited quantities of stock, the shop will likely to sell out pretty quickly. Please bear with us through this beginning stage of “growing pains.” We hope to become more efficient and faster with restocking the store. However, as the orders are processed, more stock will be created, and the shop will open its doors once fully stocked again.

If you would like to be one of the first to know when the shop reopens, sign up for the newsletter! Newsletter subscribers will get advanced notice delivered directly to their inbox when the shop is stocked. Subscribers will also get notified of blog post updates and when new cookie cutters are available.

Now on to the good stuff. Here’s a quick overview of the cutters available now. Not a ton of surprises here. Most of the cutters available today are based on past blog post tutorials. However, be on the lookout for new cutter announcements! I will continue to post tutorials on the blog and the coordinating cookie cutters in the store more regularly.
