Scrapping for Less: Grand Opening Blog Hop!




Hello All!
Happy Saturday! We are so excited to bring you a blog hop celebrating the opening of scrappingforless.com ! We wanted to do something fun for you all as you are the best customers under the sun and have helped make this dream a reality.
So before we get busy hopping we need to let you all know a few bits of information for this new site.
·         All items that are on the website are what we consider “leftovers” which means they are not new to any of you that order through the FaceBook Group on a regular basis.
·         Scrappingforless.com will be available 24 hours, 7 days a week so that you can go shopping AND you can check out as well with a credit card or PayPal whichever method you prefer.
·         scrappingforless.com WILL NOT be replacing Scrapping For Less FaceBook Group, so if you are looking for Scrap Supplies at less than retail prices the FaceBook Group is STILL the place where all the pre-order albums will be listed.

There will be lots of fun games, prizes and scrappy things going on Saturday with the Facebook Event. You will want to be there. Each blog will have a small giveaway with the Scrapping for Less blog having a bigger one. To be eligible to win each blog's prize you will need to comment on the individual blogs but to win the Scrapping for Less prize you will need to comment on each blog and the SFL blog. So try to be there! You are going to want to join in on the fun!


Each one of the blog hop participants has created something using older products they purchased from Scrapping for Less. Since the focus of the website will be to sell what I term as "leftovers" yet fabulous and great products we have focused on those items we as crafters seem to purchase and then hoard. Cause who would not want to use up their stash, right?



I want to showcase a cute Halloween card...I tend to hoard Doodlebug items and this Halloween collection is no exception...I used the super cute    to create these cards! There are lots of Doodlebug items listed for sale over on the website...not this one but I am sure you will find something you like!

Supplies Used:
Doodlebug Ghouls and Goodies 6x6 Pad
Doodlebug Orange and White Twine
La La Land Dragon Luka Stamp
Copic Markers
Jillibean Soup Witches Brew Pea Pod Parts
Cardstock from my very large stash! 

I have been hanging on to these items for quite a while! LOL!



And then a Christmas card....and even better this paper pad is for sale over at the website!


Supplies Used
American Crafts "Holiday" 6x6 (this is for sale at the website)
La La Land Paper Doll Marci: Christmas Elf
Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils...I am still learning 
to use these but they are soooo nice
Ranger Enchanted Gold Embossing Powder

and to show how everyone messes up (I do all the time)

Grand Opening of Scrapping for Less Website




Keep calm you say…well that is sometimes not in my nature! I am trying, though. Anyhow, I wanted to give an update here about what happened to me the past 5 months! I just kind of fell off the face of the blogosphere. But, thankfully not off the face of the earth!

I began a journey last May to open my own website and well that took up lots and lots of my time. At first, I thought I was going to go the DIY route in building my own website. Sometimes, (and don’t get me wrong, I love YouTube!) YouTube is just not all that easy or at least following someone’s tutorial. Because I came to the conclusion that you really need to know something about HTML to be able to build your own website. And let’s face it…I know just a tiny bit about the computer world and HTML is not in that knowledge base.
So, after fussing with the DIY portion of it for almost 2 months I hired someone to build a website for me. At first, things went beautifully, then frustration set in as the communication between myself and the designer seemed to grow weaker and weaker and the 2-3 week promised time frame turned into 8 weeks. But, I finally have a working website and so I plan to be back to blogging and sharing my creations. Growing my business is going to be front and center for the next several months so getting on with blogging and sharing is going to be key!




First up is an online Facebook event celebrating my GrandOpening! Come join in the fun Saturday, Oct 15th from 9-6. There will be lots of games, prizes, and a blog hop to join in the fun with. Hope you can be there and celebrate with me! 

In the meantime check out the website...read the blog entries, browse the shop (you might even want to buy something), sign up for the newsletter, and jump on board for a grand adventure!! Scrapping for Less: We promise to be your place to shop for great priced paper crafting supplies!
