ItsCheaperThanTherapy.com Giveaway

National Stamp & Scrapbook Month
Hey everyone! Roree here and it is Day 15 of National Stamp & Scrapbook Month.

Today we have another great sponsor with us:

ItsCheaperThanTherapy.com was established in 1997 as a Scrapbook/Stamping store in Colorado. My kids Danielle & Dillon have been involved since they were little tikes, and our shop was also next door to my dad’s business. (Definitely love the family vibe!) They have grown to love the business and crafting as much as I do. I am sure you may have seen them at a show near you in our booth having a great time.

In 2001 we were the very first store in the entire world to carry Sizzix, the first very brand to come out with a consumer die-cutting machine and consumer dies. We were hooked for sure and continue to proudly work with this wonderful die-cutting company!


We now serve you online and at Stamp & Scrapbook Expo shows across the U.S. We have a wonderful selection of products (including Sizzix, Elizabeth Craft Designs, and Karen Burniston), great prices, and the best customer service. Please stop by our booth or online to check out our goodies, say hello and have a wonderful time learning about new techniques and new products.”

ItsCheaperThanTherapy.com owner, Maria “B” the Sizzix Lady

If you have ever been to the ItsCheaperThanTherapy.com booth at one of our shows, you know just how many great products they carry and all of the great samples they display using those products. Here is a just one beautiful sampling of what you might find in their booth or online store:


This interactive birthday card was created using the Cake Pop-up Die Set, Cake Trims Die Set, Happy Birthday Die, and the Numbers Die Set and designed by Karen Burniston.

The new Cake Pop-up die sports a classy hexagon shape that folds flat at the sides to become part of the design. It also includes scalloped trim pieces and mirror-image candles. Add the awesome sentiment and number accessory die cuts and WOW! It’s a card that anyone would love!

Wouldn’t you love to receive a card like that? How about create one of your own? Well, one lucky commenter will be receiving this wonderful set of Karen Burniston dies so you can create your own amazing birthday card and more!


BUT WAIT…

What if you didn’t have a machine to use with all of those great dies? Well, Maria thought about that and has decided to give the lucky commenter a Big Shot Machine Starter Kit too!!!! The kit includes a Big Shot Machine, a set of Clear Standard Cutting Pads, and an Extended Multi-Purpose Platform!

So to recap:

One lucky commenter will win:

  • Sizzix Big Shot Machine

  • Set of Clear Standard Cutting Pads
  • Karen Burniston Pop-Up Cake die set
