Announcements, New Products, and Discounts.......

First, THANK YOU for putting up with me and my tardiness. My husband is feeling better and the "official" beginning of my new retail store has come (that means I went to the bank and signed my life away). I am finally able to get caught up on some details and projects that are way past due. I have so much to tell you so grab your coffee or soda and sit back and hang in there with me. Before we get started I want to share a photo of the spot we picked out on the farm for my new store.

Future Home of Precious Scraps

3000 square foot of retail space
(sorry for the quality of the photo, it was late in the evening)

Now on to business.....I have posted the prices to the Teresa Collins line with the product photos a few post back so be sure to go back and check it out. I am going to run a special packaged "kit". The kit will include one of either the Christmas or Halloween Die Cut Sheets, one blank die cut sheet, a set of chipboard brackets of your color choice and either 6" of O-wire for the Bind-It-All (again your color choice) or 3 Book rings (in case you don't have the BIA), all for $5 per kit. Everything you need, all in one place.

I have received my long awaited Basic Grey Collection Packs, 6x6 Pads and More. I am only posting the newest merchandise. I have other sets and products, if you don't see it here, send me a message and I will be happy to check my supply or order for you. I also have pieces of collections if there is a paper that you would like without ordering the entire collection. I am here to please you so just let me know what you need.

CD Calendar Cases and 4 x6 Clear Cases have arrived

I also received my order of clear CD Calendar Cases (no opening on the side, great for storing stamps, nestabilites, etc.) and a new 4 x 6 Clear Case great for storing photos or creating special projects. Below is a sample of a project from the 4 x 6 case. It is not the greatest, I rushed to get it completed so I could show you these wonderful cases. I am making several of these recipe holders for a craft bazaar in November. I also have mailing boxes for each case available for purchase as well, just in case you would like to mail your case as a gift or decorate to accompany your project. Each case will arrive safe and sound and individually wrapped in clear sleeves to avoid scratches.

CD Calendar Cases $ .50 ea
(insert size 5.4"x4.65")

4 x6 Photo/Calendar Case $1.50 ea
(insert size 4"x6")

CD Mailers for both sizes $ .50 ea

One more announcement and I promise I will stop. I have been blessed with awesome friends and supporters. A vast majority of those people are my girl friends at the Papertrey Ink forum. So for you gals, you will ALWAYS receive a 20% discount on any order, for any item, you place with me here at Precious Scraps. Please be sure to note with your order your name and forum name. Now aren't you glad you hung in there and read the whole post. lol

I apologize again for not having a proper "shopping cart" online service yet. I am working on it as we "speak" and hope to have it up and running very soon. Thank you for your patience. In the meantime, you may leave me a message here with your email or send me a direct email to Be sure to put Precious Scraps Order in the subject line (even if it is just a question or comment).

Wow, I think this is enough info for one night. I don't know about you but I am exhausted. I will be back Tuesday evening with prices for the My Mind's Eye that was previewed in a previous post as well. I heard a rumor that my order was shipped on Friday. I will also be getting orders from Cosmo Cricket, Black Market Society, Imaginisce, and Dream Street Papers just to name a few. I will be ordering PRISM cardstock very soon so if you have a favorite color you want me to order, let me know.

In the next few weeks I will be placing orders to stock the store. If there is a certain brand or product that you would like to have handy at Precious Scraps please be sure to let me hear from you. I want to order and supply what you, the customer, want.

ADDED NOTE: It is after midnight and while laying in bed I remembered I forgot to post Blog Candy. I WILL post this Monday Evening, I promise. I will make it up to you.

Wow, how exciting! And 3000 square feet is nothing to sneeze at! Much bigger than my LSS, by far! And I'm so glad I'm a PTI forum visitor, even if you don't know me as well as some of the others:) Thanks for sharing your dream with us!

Wow Beverly! How exciting! And what a generous discount offer for us PTI ladies. Although I'm sure it's nice to know you already have customers lining up before you even open your doors. :-)

Stephanie said...

I am so happy for you Bev! The store is going to be fabulous and I can't wait to shop there.........even if it is only online shopping.

I would LOVE it if you carried the Basic Grey buttons and brads that go with the new collections. Some of the new stamps look pretty cool too.

You are so sweet to offer us PTI ladies a special discount. I'm not surprised though because you are just that kind of gal!:)
