Sorry About the Website Downtime, but I’m Going to Make it Up to You!

I am SOO Sorry for the technical website issues during the sale of the CutMates paper!

I know that many of you have been waiting to order and some of you even took special time out of your day and I am really sorry that my website has decided not to cooperate! I feel absolutely terrible that this has caused some of you a lot of frustration and wasted time.

It has been very frustrating for me too!! We didn’t anticipate these web server challenges and there were just SO MANY people on the website at that time that it just couldn’t handle it!!

So, in order to remedy the situation and make it up to everyone who patiently waited, I’m going to be doing something special for everyone 🙂 In fact, I spoke with CutMates and they’re willing to work with us so that we can have a LOT more of the paper available to everyone at discount! I will post the details later this week, so keep coming back… if the website is still working, haha!

Thanks for your patience and understanding, everyone!


  1. No apologies necessary…these things happen. I hope everything straightens out for you soon. Looking forward to purchasing the paper when it becomes available.

  2. Connie Bragg says:

    WOW, this paper must be a big hit. I tried all morning to get on your site. Hoping all who tried get in. So anxious to try this paper as I susposed many others are.

  3. I tried all morning with no luck. I just tried and it is out of stock. Bummer! I am still a super fan!!! Can’t wait for it to be available soon. Thank you, Megan for all your hard work!

  4. Nancy Lee says:

    I see my order on your website and I got an order number. My account shows my order is in processing I hope that does mean it will be on it’s way.
    I am so sorry for you having all this trouble and I do understand. You do a great job trying please your followers

    I finally got to shopping, but when i was in shipping it went crazy and showed an errow. I was so dissappointed but I do understand. will look for email during the week. Thank you

  6. I tried to get in a number of times. Now, I just got in and in the store it says lights and darks CutMates. They both show not available. I don’t even know if that is the paper you are designing. It looked like that paper was 1 color and not a mixture of colors on a sheet. I think that is what you are designing?


  7. I tried all day and finally I got in -Out of Stock
    Oh well I’ll get it when I get it. Thanks

  8. Tried and it’s all sold out ;0( Worth the wait though!

  9. I say that this is all happening because you are just so gosh darn popular!! 🙂 This just shows how much we’re all following all that goes on at Above Rubies!! 🙂 Keep up the good work! We’ll be patient!! 🙂

  10. I waited all day at my computer. then at 12 I had every thing ready..sad face I didnt get any paper but Its okay..I’ll get some when it comes out..I love your videos and will continue to be one of your biggest always give great prizes and coupon sont worry about it..You still Rock!

  11. I was disappointed when I tried twice and the website said come back in 30 minutes. I’m sorry I missed out but I’m looking forward to seeing more in stock

  12. I tried a lot of times to get in but never did make it. Will this paper be available at any of the local big box stores?

  13. Sad to say I did not get any paper today. I tried for 4 hours and nothing couldn’t even connect. O well next time. Maybe I will just wait till the paper layerz paper comes out.

    Hi, as many other I tried all day, once I did get in it was all sold out. I had to smile as last week I got a set, but my dear sister-in-law, tried last week and it was sold out so I told her I would get it for her today. Kim works and it is impossible for her to be on line during the day. she is a nurse. I will try again next time. Hang in there, it will get better and we will stick with you, so don’t let high blood preasure get you. lol Betty

  15. Megan, I knew this would happen. Oh well, the price of fame. It is a good sign when your website crashes from too many people visiting. Though frustrating, still good!! Congrats 🙂

  16. janice ponto says:

    oh well these things happen better than not enough people ordering!!!!

  17. I also was trying right at 11:59 and I could not get on the sight but when i finally did (well after 2pm) when i put in the code for the discount it said it was invalid. i ordered it anyway without the discount but can i get some kind of refund on the discount or a credit for future purchase. The paper is worth it at regular price. Love ARS!!!!! God Bless.

  18. Isabelle says:

    It’s Okay… we learn from experiences 🙂 Looking forward to the end of the week! You’re doing a great job and I appreciate your efforts. You’re always so helpful. Thanks a lot 🙂

  19. Cin Price says:

    it’s all good,Megan.Technology can be a very frustrating issue at times and I’m sure most of us realize it’s not your fault! hang in there!

  20. Linda Gay says:

    Thanks for all you do. Can’t wait to receive this paper. I know it will be worth the wait. Looking forward to the paper layerz.

  21. Marleen says:

    I tried several times with no luck but no worries–these things happen when you are so popular 🙂 I will get some eventually 🙂

    8:30 a.m. 6/14
    I’m sorry to tell you I could not decipher the “scoop” video. I could hear you say “hello, this is Megan, and from there on it was similar to a cassette on fast forward. Please try again!

  23. Julia Becker says:

    We all understand, but wow this monkey thing came up, & weird things happened, lol. You know how to keep us on our toes, lol(kidding).

    Just think if it was this bad for the single color sheets how bad it will be for your designer sheets.
    Can’t wait.
    Not only nice of you, but thank you to cut-rite’s for their role in this too.

  24. When will the Paper Layerz be released? I thought it was for July 5 or 6. I am so anxious. What will be the price range?
