The Sunday Snapshot - Feb 14, 2016

Posted by Katy Weade

It's weekly recap time! Who has been keeping up with these Sunday posts? I know Maggie B. always stops by. (Thanks, Maggie!) Hopefully there are others who enjoy the snapshot. Of course it was another fun week at the Blitsy offices. On Tuesday we had our regularly scheduled Live with Blitsy broadcast, but on Thursday UStream was having some technical difficulties and we couldn't go live. Bummer! You can catch Tuesday's replay here. Episode topics included: Tim Holtz Mini Crazy Birds, Mug Rugs with Heidi, Marion Smith Color Lab Pigment, Stash Crashers, and Valentine's Day Inspiration.

Hot Deals

The hottest deal being talked about right now is the $5 Happy Planner sale we have going on! Seriously, this is the best deal ever. The Happy Planner Instagram account noted that the price is worth the rings alone. True! Plus, the pretty covers, you can repurpose the old months, AND it still goes through the end of this year. I personally use The Happy Planner (Gold Dot version) and it brings me more planner peace than any other system I've used.

The other deal everyone is talking about is the Crafter's Companion Spectrum Sparkle event. These babies are ohhhhhh soooooo SPARKLY! It's hard to even convey in video, but they really do add tons of shimmer. Check out this video to see 5 ways to use them.
