Important Announcement About This Week's Shipping

Hi everyone,

As many of you may know, StopAndScrap is a small family-owned business run by myself and my husband Larry. Although we occassionally receive generous help from family members, for the most part it's been the two of us working together to build what we believe can be one of the best scrapbooking e-commerce sites out there. With that said, we have two important announcements to make:

First, we'd like to announce to everybody that the StopAndScrap team will soon have a new "member" - I am now 7 months pregnant with our first child, a boy, and he is due in late August! :) We are extremely excited to finally share this news with all of our wonderful customers and friends!

Related to this, though, was some slightly bad news. I had a bit of an accident this week, falling down in our home. I was forced to spend 24 hours in the hospital for observation, but everything has turned out to be perfectly fine with the baby (although I am a little banged up myself).

Working together on this site without a team of employees is how we are able to offer such great money-saving programs such as StopAndScrap Rewards, free and discounted shipping and our sales and clearance sections. Unlike with most jobs, though, when one of us is unable to perform our duties the business is forced to slow down a bit since everything runs through us. Especially since my fall came right on the heels of our busiest weekend ever (with our 40% off clearance sale), we are now very backed up with shipping. Larry has done an amazing job of shipping dozens of orders a day, but unfortunately he still hasn't been able to keep up with the normal pace that we usually handle together. So we are requesting your patience and understanding this week as we try to get all of the orders out in a timely fashion :) We hope to get caught up by the end of weekend, but just in case we don't please have patience and we will have your order out as soon as possible.

Regarding the future, this will not normally be a huge issue except perhaps during extremely busy weeks such as this one. My husband has been able to keep up with shipping during the times that I've had to step back in the past, so we don't anticipate a problem. We just wanted to let everybody know that this is one of those extremely busy weeks. We also wanted to let you know far in advance that there will be a time in the near future that the baby will decide he's ready to arrive and we'll have to take a short hiatus from the site :) But we'll definitely let everybody know when that time arrives as soon as we can!

Thank you again in advance for your patience and understanding this week! We definitely appreciate it. Please feel free to email us at if you have any questions or requests regarding your order.

-Maria (and Larry)

**NEW** Sassafras Lass ME LIKEY

We have a small new release for you today, Sassafras Lass ME LIKEY! It is now up for pre-order, and will be shipping in mid-July. Since we are so close to CHA, we may not be re-ordering these unless they go insanely fast, so if you like it then be sure to reserve it now!

Pre-CHA Clearance Sale!

We're excited to start this season's Huge Pre-CHA Clearance Sale - 40% Off almost everything in our clearance category! We're trying to clear warehouse space for all the awesome new products we'll be ordering at next month's Craft & Hobby Association Show, so help us make room by taking advantage of this insane sale - but remember that everything is on clearance so once it's gone, it's gone for good! Click below to see it all (remember there are multiple pages so be sure to use the arrows on the page to look through everything):

Featured Products

Hey everyone - I just wanted to make sure everybody is aware of our new Featured Scrapbook Products section that we've recently added to the site. With thousands of products, it's easy for some of our interesting items to get lost in the shuffle. So we've decided to add this little area to feature some different things each week that we think you might like but might not otherwise come across on our site. Currently we are featuring the two My Mind's Eye bundles you see above, but there are also a few other items you may like besides those. Be sure to check it out each time you visit to see if anything catches your eye!

Help! We bought WAAAAYYYYY too many of these Teresa Collins stamps at Winter CHA and we are stuck with them taking up too much space. So give us a hand clearing some space out! :) They are all 25% off, with an additional 10% off if you use this week's coupon code SALE1818. Just click the link below to see them all:

10% Off Sale!

Good morning! As we get closer to yet another CHA show featuring tons of new releases, we'll be needing to clear out some inventory. For this reason, we are having another big sale this week! Please visit for a coupon to receive an additional 10% off any items in our SALES and CLEARANCE sections!

Also, a big thank you to everybody for your patience regarding last week's orders while we were away. We never expected to get so many orders, so we are a little backed up. We hope to still get everything out by today, but it's possible some of the later ones will not get out until tomorrow. We are working as hard as possible to get them out though :) And finally, the Little Yellow Bicycle Traveler collection is now in stock, and we'll be shipping those pre-orders this week as well! Thanks!!
