Let's finish up 2010 with some......

RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS!!

We here at Scrappin' Great Deals are very fortunate to deal with the most amazing people....you our customers. We would not be the business we are without the clientele we have. Sheila and all her staff work very hard each and every day to bring our customers the best advice, the best service, the best products and, as always, the best deals. Sheila receives many, many phone calls and emails thanking us for our service. It warms our hearts to know our efforts are not going unnoticed.

So to thank those, that thank us, SCRAPPIN GREAT DEALS, is once again giving away some RAK!!

A couple of emails stood out over the last few weeks and they are as follows:

NUMBER ONE:
~~~~~

Hi Sheila…..Just wanted to take a moment to wish you and your family and staff a very merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year. It has been a great year of scrapbooking and card making, thanks to your fantastic establishment. I have wonderful layouts and phenomenal cards ….not to mention an addiction to Copics!! Thanks again…..keep up the good work…..and I look forward to seeing you again in the New Year…..Cheryl Williamson

Cheryl, THANK YOU!!! We would like to give you the following little something:

December 2010 Card Kit with Whiff of Joy's Willow


NUMBER TWO:
~~~~~

Something that touches me so much is watching them donate their extra coins to the Salvation Army .... simply warms my heart. That my dear is because they have learned from the best! You are such a giving person and the apples have not fallen very far from the tree at all. I love the little personalization you put on your newsletters. It gives us all an insight into your wonderful family and makes me feel a tiny part of it!

Have a wonderful holiday season and enjoy some well deserved time with your family and friends.

Best wishes for a wonderful and prosperous 2011.

Jacqui

A NEW CHALLENGE FOR YOU!!!

It's a winter wonderland out there!!! Three snow days in a row?? When was the last time that happened!! Let's hope for some school tomorrow, this mom is running out of "keep 'em busy" ideas!!

Now on to our latest and greatest idea and a CHALLENGE for you bloggers. Scrappin' Great Deals has been offering a once a month class titled "Get Your Sketch On!", taught by Carol and Kim. They provide you with a sketch, you bring in a few pictures and they guide you through producing a layout based on that sketch. A bonus to the class, you get to stay until midnight and crop for free (the class is always on a Friday night!) So our idea.....

We will be hosting a BLOG CHALLENGE to accompany the Friday night class!! WooHoo!! Another way to win some loot from Scrappin' Great Deals!! We will post the challenge on the Saturday following the Friday night class. You create a layout based on the sketch, post it on our blog, and be eligible to win!! You will have one week to create and post!! How simple is that!!

Oh, yeah!! As a bonus to those who come to the in store class...Post your layout and you have TWO chances to win!!! How great is that!!

The next Get Your Sketch On is this Friday, December 10, 2010

So the Blog Challenge will begin Saturday December 11, 2010 and close Saturday December 18, 2010. Perfect timing to get a little something for yourself before Christmas!!


We think this is an amazing idea, and hope you all do to! It is our first Blog Challenge and we love giving away prizes!! We know our customers are the most creative people out there. We want to see your work!! Show us your STUFF!!
