We are all familiar with the large on line stores for paper crafting supplies as our “go to” site when we really need something fast and reliable. But what about when we are looking for a sheet of paper or embellishments you didn’t get before they were sold out. Maybe you are open to trying new things but not wanting to commit to monthly kits or pay full price.
Finding a good trusted site with excellent deals on Scrapbooking/Paper Crafting can be glorious. Today I am sharing with you two of my favorite sites for good deals on scrapbooking /paper crafting supplies with responsive customer service and good shipping practices.
Peachy Cheap (peachycheap.com)
Peachy cheap is a daily deal site, each day they offer email subscribers ( its free to sign up) a small assortment of supplies at a huge discount. Peachy Cheap only deals in popular brands such as:
- Simple Stories
- October Afternoon
- Echo Park
- Heidi Swapp
- American Crafts
- Fancy Pants
- My Mind’s Eye (MME)
- We R Memory Keepers
- Studio Calico
They will offer anything from a 6×6 paper pad and embellishments to washi tape collections to a grouping of embellishments from the aforementioned manufactures. What really impresses me the most is when they run a deal that sells out fast. They will put up another one within the hour, sometimes less time. I have seen them post three deals in a day to keep their customers from feeling left out. Then there is their mystery box or grab bag. The picture below is from one I received earlier this month for around $12 plus shipping ($3.99)but worth usually 3 or 4 times retail.
It is a great way to round out a collection, try new things or build up your embellishment stash without having to spend a fortune. Most of the embellishments shown in this picture would retail between $4 to $7.00 each in my area. That is not including the little mini albums. Mystery bags or boxes can be risky but, this is the third one I have bought and feel I can trust them to send quality product. Their shipping process does seem to take a little longer but they do send tracking information and its packed well. I have gotten so many good deals from them, its worth a look.
Scrapbooking For Less (scrapbookingforless.com)
I just recently discovered this site and love it. They specialize in manufacturer overstock of older product, usually from the past year. A lot of the product they sell can still be found on some sites at close to full price.
They too carry top brands such as:
- Graphic 45
- Simple Stories
- Bella Blvd.
- Echo Park
- Carta Bella
- American crafts
- Basic Grey
- Bo Bunny
Their stock is always rotating but their prices are amazing. I had just discovered Bella Blvd.’s Tiny Tots still selling at full price on a site only to find out it was a couple of years old. I found it here for close to half the price. They have had phenomenal pricing on Graphic 45 paper when they have it in stock. If you missed out on a collection or just want some great deals on top brands give this site a chance. Their turn around time for such a small company is phenomenal! They are very personable as well.
Let me know if you like hearing about good sites to shop in comments, I have a few more to share in a future post.
Please note I have no affiliation with either of these sites just really happy with the prices and service I received.
Until next time…….
