Sheila's been busy!!!


A few recent layouts of Sheila's to show off: (How stunning are her girls, not to mention the layouts??)


We really love the Sassafras Lass Mix and Mend line of papers! They take the work out of creating layers on your layouts! The paper offers you dimension, texture, colour....what is not to love!!?? Did I mention there were matching embellishments?? Here is another layout Sheila created with this line:

And those glittery border stickers, Happy Words by KI Memories, are just flying off the shelves! We have them in both black and white glitter! Check them out here!!

Another favourite at the store right now is the Zutter Distress-it-all!! So easy to use, you can distress cardstock, chipboard, designer paper, etc. Our store has one available to use when you come and crop!!! You have to try this tool out! LOVE IT!!!

Andrea & Angie have been busy with the Card Kit for February too!! Gotta love Valentine's Day!!

Compliments!!!!

My grandma has an old saying: "You catch more flys with sugar than with vinegar!!" (Okay, ALL your grandmas probably said it too!!) But it is so true!! We here at Scrappin' Great Deals, LOVE a compliment and we get our fair share to be honest!! All the staff try really hard to make our store THE BEST EVER!!! Some niceness stands out from the rest though and this is one email we received and we would like to share it with all of you:

~~~~~~

Hi Sheila,

I have never really gone out of my way to submit to a scrapbooking company before but definitely thought it was time! Even though I have only made 2 purchases to date and don’t you worry there will be more!

I just wanted to take the time to let you know that I am grateful that I have found your website. I am absolutely loving the great amazing deals and pricing for us Canadians girls and men! Your packaging is exceptional and who doesn’t love the extra treats! I also have to commend you on your very quick shipping. Your feedback to myself as the customer when stock is not available also speaks for itself. You carry up to date merchandise and I am looking forward to your new stock from CHA assuming you attend that is. Would love to get my hands on some Gabrielle and Vicki B by Bo Bunny, just gorgeous and Basic Grey and…. I better stop while I am ahead.

Again thank you so very much. This customer truly appreciates your online service!

I would be interested in taking part in your monthly kits if you can provide me with the details that would be wonderful. I have just received my first kit for the month of January and love it and want more.

Wendy Plouffe

THANK YOU WENDY!!

You made our day with such fantastic praise!! Now to thank you, we will be sending you one of Scrappin' Sheila's LIMITED EDITION Scrapbooking Kits!!

Gotta Love a Little RAK!!

More ways to win your purchase from SGD!!!

More fun @ SGD's!!   Seriously, my brain just does not stop!! 


Mike & I were talking over breakfast this past Sunday (our 10 year wedding anniversary!!) and we kept reflecting upon how far we've come from our little one room basement online shop. We moved from one tiny room into 2 rooms .... then 3 rooms ... then a new basement in a bigger house .... and finally at our gorgeous store front. Owning an actual store was never in the plans for us - it was always going to be an online shop.


Something else you will all get a chuckle from is that I swore up and down that I would never sell stamps! I had no interest in this stamp thing ... and now girlfriends, I'm hooked. (**Note from Andrea- your welcome ladies- I pestered her relentlessly hee hee!**)


Our industry is amazing! With CHA coming up, even more amazing things are in store for us all!!    Without you, our online customers, our business never would have grown so that my husband could have his TV room back! Many of you have been ordering your craft supplies with us since the very beginning and we are truly thankful. So .... we have decided to change our plans once again!! Instead of once a month - it will now be once a week that a lucky shopper will win their purchase back with SGD's!! This is in addition to our 3 weekly winners for $10 coupons!    This is our way of saying thank you for sticking by us and believing in us. There have been some bumps along the way, but those bumps have made us stronger than ever.


This is how it will work:   Once a week, Scrappin' Great Deals will be giving one lucky winner their purchase back with a gift card to our store!! If you shop online, you automatically qualify to win! Winners will be announced in our newsletter & receive an email from us with details on how to redeem your winning coupon!! Winners will be selected from online orders made during the previous week.  The winner's entire purchase will be returned to them with a coupon to SGD's!! Now how cool is that!?!! This week's lucky winner, selected from orders placed last week, is ..... Norah J. of Winnipeg, Manitoba!! Your order #12506 placed January 13th for $70.37 has been selected for our Win Your Purchase Back event!!Congratulations Norah!! Tune in next week to see if you are our lucky winner!!


Now how awesome is all of that....Seriously!!! Sheila

WRMK Sew Easy

AN INCREDIBLE NEW "MUST HAVE" TOOL!!


Okay, how fabulous is this tool??? We cannot keep it on the shelves! As soon as a shipment arrives, they are shipped back out because of all the backorders we have! I have to admit that I have never stitched on a layout, primarily because of the hassle of pulling out my big sewing machine. It never seemed worth the effort. But I can see me using this, (if I can get my hands on one)!! There are multiple interchangeable heads for different stitches. Here are a few of them:













So for those of you who have managed to nab one, tell us.....is it as fantastic as it looks?? Is it truly SEWeasy??!!
