Hi everyone! Some things have happened since my last post. I almost got a house and I had my craft room almost all the way packed up and then the deal fell through. (which was a blessing in disguise). So now I have to unpack my craft room again before I can start updating my storage and organization methods for you guys in blog and photo format. The problem is that I haven’t had or made the time. (BUT I WILL) I actually have today off and could be doing it but instead I find myself laying in bed typing this post and cuddling with Ava lol. How can I say no to this face?
Anyway! My favorite products change more than once a year as new products come out so I have decided to change up my annual “Kat’s Favorite Crafty Things” posts to an ongoing and always updated list. I use products for awhile before I add them because I want to make sure that I like them after having used them for weeks or months before recommending them to you.
I get so many questions on what my favorite “____” is and sometimes it changes since the last “favorites” post so I think this will be a much more accurate and up to date way to keep you informed on my favorite crafty things! I hope you agree.
I will be working on this on an ongoing basis but the entire series of posts WILL be completed no later than the end of the year. I will start on it this weekend I think so you may see a page at a time but it will all be linked together and linked in my menu so it’s easy to find. I really hope you guys like this idea and that it helps you when deciding which crafty products to try. I also hope it saves you money so you don’t buy products that aren’t so great.
Something else I wanted to share with you guys is that the Kat Scrappiness store has changed and will continue to change. By change, I mean that this year I started to create and manufacture more and more of my own branded products.
I started with dies, stamps, sequins, custom sequin mixes, clay sprinkles and custom sprinkle mixes. But now I’ve added things like acetate sheets (cut to size, both A2 and Slimline), Die Snips and very soon you will see more of my own products such as an awesome (and beautiful) Pick Up Tool, Sequin Storage Solution and Slimline sized PATTERNED PAPER! While doing all of this I am continuing to come out with more stamps and a LOT of dies and embellishments. It takes so much time to get these things made and made right but I am so excited to be growing my own brand and bringing you products that I think you will love and all at the lowest price possible.
You may have noticed that my products are priced below most other stores. I make less profit than some of the bigger, well known brands, but I also feel like I can reach more crafters, and perhaps help those on a budget a little more by taking less for myself. I love what I do and I just want to spread the crafty happiness to as many people as possible!
Another exciting piece of news is that we have a few wholesale customers now with brick & mortar stores that carry our products. If you have a store and are interested in carrying the Kat Scrappiness brand products, you can always apply to sell our products by clicking on the “wholesale” button on our website. 🙂 If you have a local crafting store (or favorite online store) and think they might be interested in carrying our products, please direct them here: WHOLESALE APPLICATION.
Make sure and email us at cs@KatScrappiness.com and let us know who you referred and ask them to tell us who referred them and if they sign up and make a purchase, you will receive a $50.00 gift card to our store!
Well that’s about it for updates for now. As you can imagine the store keeps me pretty busy but I really do plan to find and make time to bring you the features and posts I’ve promised to on this, my personal blog. It is important to me that I keep a direct connection with crafters both new and ones I’ve known for years. I will never forget how I started in this hobby and the friends I’ve made over the years. After all this all started back in 1991 because I wanted a single parent’s baby book and couldn’t find one so I decided to start scrapbooking and make my own!
I’d love to hear how you got into crafting. Leave a comment and let me know and I’ll choose one person to receive a $15 gift card to the Kat Scrappiness store!
I’ll post the winner right here on this blog post (at the top) on August 30th, 2020 around noon PST)!
