Scrap Shotz 6th Annual Boxing Week Blow Out Sale!!!

Welcome to our 6th annual Boxing Week Blow-out Sale!!!  

Can you believe Sandy is offering 35% off nearly storewide?? (Me neither so believe me, I'll be shopping up a storm!)
How does the Boxing Week Blow Out Sale work? 

You MUST enter the correct coupon code when you check out.  There is a coupon area at the bottom of the check out  page.  If you have any trouble using the code, make sure you are logged in first.

The code is  box35 and it becomes effective at noon MST on Thursday Dec 29th, and runs through Midnight MST on Dec 31st!

Why don't we offer a 50% off sale?  Because our everyday prices are so low, getting 35% off here is like getting 50% off just about anywhere else! 

Please shop early for the best selection, as popular items tend to sell quickly!! 

The fine print!
The coupon code is going to take 35% nearly every single item in your cart!!    There are few exclusions, these are noted in the item description, and include things like kits, as well as kit add ons, and the odd other item. 97% of all items are included!!
Orders will be shipped in the order that they come in, with most orders shipping after Jan 1.    If you are a kit customer, your order will ship with your January kit.

If you are paying via Paypal, please wait to be invoiced.  I will invoice you once your order is picked, packaged and weighed. 

If you have your order shipped, please make sure you select expedited shipping and not local pick up.  I will adjust the shipping if necessary ( usually it's downward!) once I have the order packed and weighed. 
Please check your email regularly after the sale in case I need to contact you about anything. 

Actual shipping will apply to all orders, and no other coupons will be applied.

So what IS in the store anyway?

Check  our NOW ON SALE  category.   The sale will give you 35% off all these items as well!!

Check all of our New Products By Date for the latest additions to the store.

We are stocked up in most items including Smash ProductsTim Holtz Limited Edition InksDistrict Market Items ( including the Tim Holtz Totes), and of course we are nearly fully stocked up in Copics!  (Over and above this, I have a large order arriving in the new year, and have ' cyber' added these items  to the inventory, and where possible have shown this in the item description).  And don't forget your 2012 Scrapbook and Cards Today Calendar!

Inventory Note:
Although we do our best to make sure it's accurate, errors do occur ( fat fingers and late nights!)  If any major items on your list are out of stock I will let you know before shipping, so please check your emails regularly.

Enjoy! Let me know what you have decided to order, ok??? :-)

Good morning Everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas spent with family and friends and that you were blessed with joy and health.

If you a loved one wasn't sure what to get you for Christmas or you have a some extra funds burning a hole in your pocket book, consider my last 2 favorite scrappy gifts!!!

2. Tim Holtz Cargo Case

OK I have what feels like a bajillion containers at home but this Tim Holtz Cargo Case is absolutely divine. I envision copics, inks, stamps and oh so much more!

1. Vagabond

This Tim Holtz tool has proven to be a keeper - it appears to be a powerhouse amongst many die cut machines and it is adorable to boot!

So was Santa good to you?

Top 10 Scrappy Gifts: Part 2

I had such hard time picking the first 3 scrappy gifts - LOL! Here are my next set of awesome scrappy gifts for Christmas :-)

7. WRMK Sew Easy Ribbon Tool

Last year, everyone coveted the Sew Easy tool. Can you believe in one year, WRMK has come out with yet another rockin' product?

6.  Sizzix 3D Flower Die

It is no secret that I am in serious love with this die. These flowers are all the rage! I have made fabric flowers of many different materials, be it jeans, light weight suede and even lightweight leather. These 3D flowers take an already great project out of this world spectacular!

5.  Prima Chalk Fluid Edger

In my humble opinion, these Prima chalk fluid edgers are da bombe! They are juicy, go on evenly, are available in beautiful colours, and are so so SO easy to apply.

So what do you think of my latest choices????

Top 10 Scrappy Gifts: Part 1

Christmas is officially less than 10 days away. Are you (or a loved one ;-) ) wondering what to get the scrappy person in their lives? Well, perhaps I can help :-)

10:  Best Creations Glitter Cardstock

Can a girl ever have too much paper? This glitter cardstock from Best Creations is one of my all time favorites. It cuts like a dream on my trimmer and the glitter does not leave a trail throughout my house. It comes in an array of dreamy colours. An assortment of these under the tree would be well received!

9:  PageMaps Calendar from Scrapbook and Cards Today

This calendar has alot of bang for its buck! It's beautiful and practical - love it!

8:  Prima Mistables

I am in serious love with the Prima Mistables line and their corresponding accents on canvas! With all the mists I have this is the perfect custom made accent for all my projects.

Watch next week for the rest of my Top 10 Scrappy Gifts this year and other inspiration pieces!

Fabulous Fundamental: Gift Wrapping Ideas

Today I am starting a series on interesting gift wrapping ideas using your scrappy supplies!

First up is a series of tags made with the dregs of a Scrap Shotz kit!

Supplies:  Tag base (Staples); Fancy Pants (pattern paper); Scenic Route (chipboard stars); Pink Paislee (pixie stix glitter); Tattered Angels glimmer mist (Pearl); American Crafts (rub ons); garland (source unknown); ribbon (May Arts)

Now what about using the tag for a gift bag? That bag is from My Minds Eye and a former add-on to a Scrap Shotz monthly kit.  Same supplies as above.

My gift bag is filled with homemade nuts and bolts - yum! I happen to have 3 more sheets so I'll be filling them with Nuts and Bolts and gingersnaps for my neighbours this year. 

I hope you have been inspired and will check back for more ideas!

Fabulous Find: Sizzix Pillow Box

December is here and you know what that means, right? Yup Christmas is just around the corner and it is a time for scrappers to showcase their talents!

Today, I have an adorable pillow box to share. If you are like me, I am always on the hunt for interesting but gorgeous ways to package gifts.

Well look no further - consider this pillow box! It's die is from Sixxiz and cuts like butter! It literally takes minutes to assemble and how you adorn it is completely up to you! On this example, I cut cream Bazzill cardstock, spritzed it with Goosebumps and let it dry. Then I used that luscious glitter cardstock Sandy carries for the cumberbund and added some Sixxiz 3D flowers (also a die). Those snowflakes are diecut from a Cuttlebug die too! All this took me less than 10 minutes!

The possibilities are endless - I made 25 for an advent countdown but it is perfect for jewellery or sweet gifts!
