A Perfect Match!

Don't you just love it when your photos match a particular paper line perfectly! Like they were made exactly for one another! Well that's what happened for me with the Simple Stories line from the September kit. They matched photos we took at the Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, Texas from our summer vacation.



That's all I can say when I saw how much stuff is available at such fabulous prices!!

In addition to grabbing those kits and add-ons at incredible below cost prices, be sure to check out the add-ons page! Scroll down to the bottom to see all the goodies - mega kits, mystery boxes, $1.00 items!!

For those of you loyal customers in the Year of the Sussie 2011, I held the drawing this morning. I wish I could say that I did something clever like have my goldfish pick the names or something, but it was simply a random # generator. Everyone who had purchased a June kit was entered. If you also purchased a July kit, your name was entered again. If you also purchased an August kit, your name was entered a third time. And, finally, if you also purchased a September kit, your name was entered yet again! Congratulations to all of our winners!!!

Dear current customers, old customers, and potential customers,

It is with very mixed emotions that I bring you the news announcing the closing of Scrapbook Sussies as a monthly kit club. I struggled with this decision for months, but when I finally made the choice, I felt a large weight lifted.

I still believe that Scrapbook Sussies is the best value in kit clubs on the market. I don't think I've ever seen another club that, in addition to giving you $40.00 worth of goodies for just $29.95, also follows that up with TONS of free goodies for customer loyalty.

But with a kit club of that nature, it is imperative that the number of kits going out the door remains high, and, sadly, I have seen a decrease in the number of monthly customers. In addition, I've been working part time and, as a lot of you know, there are more time constraints as the kids get older. So after nearly 6 years as a kit club, Scrapbook Sussies will cease sending out monthly kits.

For those of you participating in the Year of the Sussie 2011, I am going to try to honor as much of the promotion as I can and give you the free special edition kit that you were supposed to get with your October kit. You have probably already received it with your September kit. ENJOY!!! You have received almost $100 of free product. I will still hold the drawing and, if you happen to win the 6 months of free Sussies, you will win $250 of free product, including the mega-kit of new product mentioned below!!
Winners to be announced on Monday.

For everyone, the great news is that, beginning MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 12TH around NOON MOUNTAIN TIME, everything is going on CLEARANCE!!!

First thing you need to know. The prices you see are the FINAL PRICES!!! I will not be decreasing the amounts any further at any point. I'm stating the final prices right away at over 50% off the retail (less than my cost!) and what doesn't sell will be donated. So, if you're interested in any of the items, buy them now before they are sold out.

For every $75.00 you spend, I will throw in a goodie bag containing at least $15.00 worth of product! Additionally, every clearance order placed in September will get a free Thickers with their purchase.

Shipping will be a standard $10.50 (flat rate box). So make sure to fill that box up!!!

I want to thank everyone who has been a customer. I am sad to see my little kit club come to an end, but I hope that my kits have brought a lot of scrapbooking joy to you. I'll be around for a while - perhaps there will be special offers or promotions - mystery boxes, special purchases, etc... In fact, I am currently looking for a handful of individuals who are interested in a super-large Back-To-School/Halloween/Fall/Christmas mega kit of the latest lines. If you are interested in hearing more details, email me and I'll get you the info! There's only about five or six spots available for this.

As always, Happy Scrapping and Get To Using Those Sussies Kits Up!!!

Thanks for all the fun - Lara McClendon, Owner, Scrapbook Sussies

it is a simple story....

it is the name of this paper company in this side of the September kit (which I ADORE!!!), but it really is so much more. scrapbooking really is the simple stories we tell. the ones that mean the very most to us!

and here are some simple pages that tell a simple story! I am so thankful I found these photos from a over a year ago and finally have the story on paper....

it can be many words or few, but take the time to tell your story! and if you do make sure you share your pages in the Sussies Gallery so we can see them , too!!

Happy Labor Day!

I hope you are enjoying your 3 day weekend! We are heading out to the inlaws in just a bit for lunch and to celebrate Grandpa's birthday. The weather has finally cooled off just a bit and it's almost cold in the mornings! I love this time of the year! Our own designer Valerie Allen created the sketch this month! As most of you know by now I rarely do single-page layouts and it's even more rare for me to just put a single photo on a page but I had to try! Here's the sketch:
And so I created my first page knowing I'd have to get at least 4 (I had 6) more photos on the second page. I thought I'd keep it pretty simple and just incorporated the design elements onto the second page as well! I just used a marker to outline the area although I was tempted to sew. Not tempted enough to do it though!
So, how do you transform a single page sketch into a double page layout? Look for some double page sketches coming soon!
