Here it is… The BIG Giveaway! Plus, Free Stick-Itz with Christmas Crafts DVD Available!

Hey Everyone!

So today is the DAY of the “everyone wins” giveaway! I had a wonderful Thanksgiving with my family and a crazy night of shopping and saving! Now it’s time to share my own great deals and steals and a GIVEAWAY with you!

First, the BRAND NEW “Christmas Crafts” DVD including a FREE pack of my new Stick-Itz super-strong adhesive squares is in stock and available in the ARS Online Store!

I was only able to get a limited supply of the Stick-Itz sample packs to include with this DVD, so don’t wait too long if you’d like get the DVD and try out my line of adhesive!

Black Friday Special: Buy ANY 2 items and get FREE shipping!

To make today even MORE exciting, if you buy ANY two or more items from the ARS online store, you will automatically get FREE shipping on your entire order… So you could get 2 Christmas Crafts DVDs each with the Stick-Itz and I think the extra DVD with the pack of Stick-Itz would make a GREAT gift… just saying!

After eatting too much, Mom and I did up the dishes and put away the food. pop took another nap. Later we had dessert, homemade Carmel pecan Pie. Yum!

  35. scrappin2boys says:

    Thanks for the class, Megan. I have been trying to think of something to give my sister-in-law for Christmas. They had a fire last Christmas, and I am sure she lost a lot of her frames, phontos,etc. This is perfect! We had a very quiet but special Thanksgiving. It was just our immediate family, this year, which was a treat. Our kids are 6 adn 10, and it was nice having them to ourselves this year.

  47. Cydney Fowler says:

    I am registered and I did my shopping for the holiday DVD and some paper. Megan, thanks for the gift of the free class registration. I am all signed up. I wish I could share it with someone, but I am the “lone crafter” in my group of family and friends. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving and that you get some great Black Friday bargains yourself. Two of my brothers and one of my nephews came to dinner – I don’t get to see them often and it is usually a very large family crowd when I do so it is hard to visit with them with all the hubbub surrounding large gathers. There were just seven of us total this time (my mom, sister and husband too but I see them all the time) and we had a great time. My brothers and husband were telling silly jokes and they were laughing so hard it was making the rest of us laugh too! The jokes were mostly just silly or bad but they were having such a good time it was hilarious. One of my brothers passed away in October and it was special that two of my brothers made a special effort to be with our mother. A very nice dinner and good company. Happy Holidays!

  48. Sonia Rowe says:

    Just registered for your online class. So excited, I have never done that before. Thanks for the chance to do this. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family. I had family from Florida and Virginia and had a great time. Thanks again 🙂

  49. I just registered for your class, I’m so excited!! Just one thing though, I can’t afford your monthly club but I LOVE your Paper Layerz. When will you be coming out with more designs? I need them badly. Thanks for the contest. Happy Holidays

  50. Thanks for the very thoughtful and creative gift. Can’t wait for the class! I’m very thankful for you and Above Rubies Studio!

  51. thanks so much for the free class. I am looking forward to it!

  52. I registered for the class and registered my sister, thanks so much. I’m looking forward to it. I’m guessing i’ll be working when you have it live, so thanks for having it available to access anytime!

  53. I just signed up and cant wait!! Thanks

  54. Jody Smith says:

    Enjoyed my Black Friday shopping. Was very surprised that I got most of what I was looking for and then some. Actually had a Cricut Imagine in my cart at Walmart but talked myself out of it because I decided that I did not need to spend the extra money. I already have an expression and love it so just decided to stick with that one.

    Can’t wait for the class!

  55. Just bought my 1st expression 3 weeks ago. Can’t wait for a class.I have been to sick to try, + alittle (alot) afraid) that I will break it or ruin it. Nerver watched a video or saw any one use it. So I am going to be brave and do it. I can, I can, I can. Yes, I can. I can’t wait. I am reading the book now.

  56. Carmen Elrod says:

    HI Megan~ Thanks for the invite for the free class! I am excited and all signed up~ have never done one before! I can hardly wait to get my Christmas DVD! Have a great day!

  57. Thank you Megan! Looking forward to the class.

  58. Caroline Paniccia says:

    Oopsie Daisy! Please take a look at my registration. My Email should read ****! Silly me, I had made a typo! Thank you!

  59. Can ‘t wait for the class! Thanks to your sharing of yor Black Friday shopping list I became aware of Walmart’s Imagine for such a great deal-so off we went at 10pm to start our shopping and I actually was able to get one. Thanks for the heads up!! Then after Walmart we headed to Park City and finally returned home at 5:30pm on Friday. A little wiped but carts full of bargains- the best was my Imagine though. Thanks again for everything you offer to your followers.

  60. Hi Megan,
    Thanks for inviting. It is all new for me, so I am very curious.

  61. Yippee!! Registered for the class and I am so excited!! thank you so much and it is so awesome of you to let us invite a friend — mine is super stoked!! Got my cricut imagine on Black Friday — best deal of the night 🙂

  62. Hi Megan! I’m excited about this class and want to thank you for giving us the opportunity to invite a friend and
    it’s free to boot!

  63. My two-year-old son was ‘helping’ me in the kitchen on thanksgiving when he decided to ‘football spike’ the container of sprinkles for our cupcakes. When the container’s lid popped off he yelled, ‘touchdown’. After taking a picture of the sprinkle-y kitchen and letting him make snow angels in sprinkles for a few minutes, I had to stop my dinner prep to vacuum sprinkles from the kitchen and dining room floors. I got good pics that I’ll be scrapping soon!

  64. Marissa Flores says:

    Hi Megan,
    I just registered for the class and place an order…SO Excited!!!! Can hardly wait until I get my goodies!! Thanks for sharing your creativity with us!!!

  65. Janice Davis says:

    I got the DVD today and the sample of tape. I want a lot of that tape. I had to test it and it really does work well. I have tried looking for it at the Above Rubies Store, but so far I haven’t seen it. We need a notification when you have it for sale.

    Plus, I got the fastest service, it was great.
