I got an e-mail today from Joann.com saying they had a 1-Day Only sale with up to 50% off some scrapbook supplies. I wasn’t looking for anything in particular but somehow came across “Sketches for Scrapbooking, Volume 8″ by SCRAPBOOK GENERATION and remembered I want it!
As you know, I love me some SKETCHES FOR SCRAPBOOKING books.
I have “Sketches for Scrapbooking”, volumes 1-7 and one of the cardmaking ones. The 2 that I currently want are Volume 8 and the Travel one. I couldn’t find the travel one at JOANN.COM, though :)
Before I pulled the trigger, I did a little bit of price comparing because I had seen recently on a 2Peas post that these books were found for a good price on OVERSTOCK.COM. However, the 2 volumes I want were listed for almost full price there.
Then I looked on Scrapbook Generations’ own site to see what it would cost to get Volume 8 from them.
Scrapbook Generation: $16 plus $2 for shipping (if added to my monthly kit shipment) = $18
Joann.com: $16 at 50% off = $8 plus $6 shipping = $14
So I went with the Joann.com deal. Plus I got some scissors I’ve been needing to replace (because my lovely husband used them for something outside and never brought them back … love that man!)
I’ve had these scissors since I started scrapbooking 11 years ago and love them. They are the BEST for fussy cutting. The Fiskars scissors were $16 on sale for $11 and added $1 to the shipping.
So I got both items for $27 total.
