My personal CT and the Scrap Matters team are going CRAZY for this grab bag!! I am so happy the response has been so great, and I have to tell you, the layouts I've been seeing from it so far are absolutely AMAZING!! I really have a hard time picking a favorite! So, here are some ideas of what you can use the grab bag for - these ladies are all so talented, their layouts are just beautiful!
First up, you know that we are having a Storewide Sale to celebrate Scrap Matter's 2nd Birthday - WOOT!! All personal use products are 30% off, all Commercial Use products are 10% off, and all the Kaiser Craft hybrid products are 20% off, too! To sweeten the deal even more, of course we have a brand new MEGA kit for you! "A Perfect Picnic" is FREE with any single $15 purchase from the Scrap Matters store, this weekend only!
And, if you spend $20 or more in a single purchase, you'll not only receive the MEGA kit, but you'll also receive the coordinating "Hybrid Party Pack," too!
Now, you don't want to miss a single Speed Scrap because they ALL have fabulous participation prizes AND they're going to be a lot of fun, too! Here is the full schedule of Speed Scraps:
I am personally hosting the Speed Scrap on Saturday night at 9pm EST - here is a peek at the participation prize I'll be giving away!!
Of course, a big Birthday Weekend should always include a fun CHAT with lots of Scrap Matters trivia and prizes! The chat will be hosted on Saturday by SM's own Jen! Here is the info on that:
And, no birthday party would be complete without lots of fun games and goodies given to the winners, right??
