Happy One Year Anniversary All U Need Scrapbook Kits!!!!
Exactly a year ago this weekend, the idea for All U Need Scrap was born by Kara and Julie LeMaster! For the past 3 years, they have been attending a wonderful crop weekend in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina. Kara brought along some pictures of her daughter and Julie's son playing together. Instead of scrapping those pics in a traditional 12 by 12 layout, Kara packed a 6 by 6 chipboard album and some matching paper and embellishments. As Julie watched each page come to life, she was in awe of the uniqueness of this mini book. A whole book that told a story! And not only that...Kara completed the entire album in just a couple of hours. What a sense of accomplishment....a scrapbook project...COMPLETE!
At the same moment they looked at each other and new exactly what they wanted to do! If they loved the idea of a mini album, they knew there were fellow scrapper that would feel the same way. So they started All U Need Scrap!!!!!!
As scrapbookers with busy lives, it is hard to “catch up” with the albums we plan. There is just so little time in the day to fit in everything. Your son’s baseball game, your daughter’s art class, church meeting, laundry, volunteering, helping with homework... If you had a few hours to squeeze in some scrapbooking, why not complete an entire project in that time? You could finish your daughter’s dance recital in one sitting!!!
So....in honor of the one year anniversary of All U Need Scrap Creation, Kara & Julie are offering all my blog readers a special deal! 15% off your entire purchase from our website!!!! All you need to do is use the coupon code DONNA15! Its that simple.
They love what they do and are excited to share it with others! Check out their blog for all the latest info!
Saving Money With Koupon Karen!!
I just love my new friend Karen's website, KouponKaren. She always has all the best information on how to make and save some extra cash.
Check out what information she has but together for all my blog readers on how to make a little extra money! She is just the best.
Who couldn't use some extra cash right? I'm sure you've heard that you can earn money taking surveys but finding the right companies that actually pay you for your opinion can be very time consuming and frustrating. One of the things Karen likes to do for her readers is save them time! Well she has done the work, she has joined the survey companies, made some money and weeded out the spammers and now she wants to share with you how you can make anywhere from $25 or more each month taking surveys online.
- Never pay to join a survey company or to get a list of survey companies. All this information is free online.
- Open a separate email account just for surveys. Not because you’ll get SPAM, but this way all the survey invites are in one place and when you have time to take some surveys you’ll be able to sort through them more easily. You can get free email address’s from yahoo, gmail, hotmail and aol.
- Please do not expect to get rich by taking surveys. This is simply a way to earn some extra cash. The more time you have the more potential you’ll have to earn.
When you first sign up you’ll need to fill out a profile. This is very important because they will use this information to help match you with surveys. If you have babies, they’ll send you surveys about baby products and the such. If you have pets, they’ll send you surveys about pets. You get the idea.
Once you sign up, be sure to check your email for any further instructions. Then you'll begin receiving emails when they have a survey that possibly matches with you. Now I say possibly because what you’ll receive is what I like to call a ’screener’ email. The screener will ask you more detailed questions to see if you match that particular survey. You won't be accepted for every survey, it's just how it works.
What can you earn with survey companies? You can earn cash, gift cards, prizes or entries into big drawings. Each company does their own thing. Karen personally likes to get the cash or gift cards! Most surveys average out to about 20 minutes and pay on average $2.00 a survey. Karen has had months where she made about $100 or more. That’s taking about 3-5 surveys a day, of course she doesnt qualify for all of them. While your sitting watching TV you can breeze through a few.
Those are the basics you need to know to get started but you can find more detailed information about the companies she belongs to in the Paid Survey Sites section of her blog and her honest thoughts about them. Here are a few of her favorite sites but you'll find more there.
