Enabler Alert - How to get a big bang for your buck in May

Okay, so if you've read my blog for a while you might have figured out that I am a sucker for a good deal and I always try to find the best value for my buck.  One of the things I always focus on with my customers is getting the best value for them - aka the most scrappy goodies we can possibly get!  So I figured with the May promotion I'd write up a quick post to show you how you can rack and stack your goodies!

May National Scrapbooking Month "You and Me Kit" - purchase outright for $34.95 or place a $50 order and get it for just $15!
So, I want the kit at the reduced price so I want to place an order of $50.  I go over to the "While Supplies Last" aka CLEARANCE section on my website and see a bunch of new accessories added!
linkI score three sheets of 12x12 felt shapes for just $1.50  = $1.50
linkI grab a couple of the Chocolate Mini Medleys at just $3 each so I get 2= $6
linkThese medleys are colors used in Sophia and Lucky so I grab 3 of packs of these at $3 each = $9
linkI used these last year to make Christmas cards and now they are just $2 so I get 2 = $4
I purchased the Autumn Garden Medleys to go with Sophia so I pick up the Workshop kit for just $29.95 and I can make layouts AND cards with the guide, accessories, stamps and papers included!

So, my order comes to $15 (for You and Me) + $50.50 (for WOTG kit plus 8 clearance items) + $11.54 (May SOTM) = $77.04 and I get 2 D size stamps, a B size stamp, 2 paper sets, 3 new accessories from the kits, brochures to tell me what to do with my stuff, plus 8 clearance items!  Whew!  Thats a lot of goodies!

BUT, if I wanted to REALLY stack it up, I can order the Lucky WOTG kit for $29.95 and a package of Lucky or Sophia Level 2 Stickease for just $4.95 and get the Stamp of the Month for FREE.
$15 (You and Me) + $85.40 (now with everything above PLUS a whole extra WOTG plus a Stickease) + FREE SOTM = $100.40!
 + Sophia Stickease
So that is pretty much how I put my orders together each month.  I almost always spend $100 a month on scrapping supplies through CTMH.  At first when I figured out my budget for supplies I thought it was a bit steep but then I looked at how much I would spend at Michaels or Joanns in a month and how much of that just sat there because it didn't coordinate with anything or I didn't know what to do with it.  With CTMH kits I'll have the first several projects mapped out for me and after that I'll be able to use every scrap because of the stable color palette used through all our goods.

I hope that helped some of you fellow bargain shoppers see how to rack and stack orders - its even better when you are hostess of an event because you get those free rewards on top of your own order!  If you'd like to set up an online only gathering (you can be anywhere in the country) so you and your friends can get some great product and rewards, then contact me at and we'll get you started!
