I was recently given the opportunity to go on a bit of a spending spree on Blitsy’s website and see how much I could get for my planner. It was so exciting! What would I get? How could I be creative and think outside the box for my planner? How much could I get with the amount I was allotted to spend? I was a girl on a mission – a mission to bring the amazing world of Blitsy to the pages of my planner.
Retail Therapy With Blitsy
I waited until the kids went to bed so I could have pure peace and quiet for my shopping bliss. I pulled up the website and immediately started clicking that “add to cart” button. See, when I online shop I just add everything I think I want to my cart and then when I see the price damage I have a mini heart attack and then start removing things.
I probably shopped for like 2 hours. (Come on now, when you have quiet time and permission to online shop – you squeeze every bit of time out of that opportunity you possibly can – amiright?!) When I finally decided I had probably gone WAY over my budget I braced myself for the panic and clicked on “view cart”.
Surprisingly I was over my budget, but not too much! I was amazed! I wouldn’t have to delete much at all! And then, I saw this:
Whaaat?! Blitsy accepts 40% off competitor coupons?! Cha-CHING! That means MORE STUFF! I finally clicked to complete my order, and expected to wait a couple of weeks before I would get my order in the mail.
You see, Blitsy can offer their awesome discounted prices because they act kind of like a middle man between the customer and the company who sells the product. That means, when you place an order Blitsy has to wait to receive the product from the company before they can forward the product on to you. Sometimes that means a bit of a wait in the shipping time; but for the all that you get at at those prices, it’s so worth it.
But I didn’t have to wait long – I got my box in one week! Actually quite a few of my orders lately have been shipping much faster and Amy has said the same about her orders! Yay for faster shipping!
My Blitsy Order
Again, I waited for everyone to go to bed so I could get out the goods and start to play without interruptions (aint nobody got time for that). I created for hours! (Seriously – I big time overslept the next day because of my late night planning binge. But its okay, it was so worth it.)
Here’s a list of everything I got (this time.. I now have a Blitsy problem. Thanks Blitsy!):
- Create 365 The Happy Planner- Pocket Cards
- Create 365 The Happy Planner- Page Protector Assorted
- Carpe Diem Bits & Pieces Cardstock Die-Cuts
- Xyron 150 Machine – Create-A-Sticker
- Faber-Castell Designing With Gelatos Kit
- Carpe Diem Stickers – Word Label
- Create 365 The Happy Planner- Stickers Life Quotes
I was able to do some really cool stuff for my planner. Check it out!
Planner Therapy With My Blitsy Haul
First, I dug out the Gelatos. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them after watching this video. Seriously – how cool are these?! I used these to draw directly onto my planner pages, and even made some colored boxes for my Happy Planner! Oh, and you can color directly onto your stamps for some cool effects as well (It didn’t turn out great since I was still learning how – but you can see the birthday cake stamped below using the gelatos!). So many possibilities with these!
Oh, Check out this dashboard I made for my happy planner with the Gelatos too! I know, my lettering needs some major help. I’m working on it.
I used the Xyron Sticker Maker to turn the boxes I created and the Bits and Pieces into stickers (helps a lazy girl save on the scrapbook tapes!).
Check out what Amy did with her Xyron machine – She turned ribbon into washi tape! That girl.. she’s a smart one!
I also used a bunch of MAMBI stickers to make this layout. I love how you can really get creative with them. Some I actually cut in half to use in two different places!
Finally, I used my MAMBI Pocket Cards, Page Protectors, and some Carpe Diem Bits and Pieces to make these shakers! I love when I flip through my planners and see these beauties staring back at me!
The Blitsy Experience
Overall, I was more than happy with my Blitsy experience. Awesome product for low (and competitive!) prices, fast shipping, and hours of creative bliss that resulted in some very cute planner decorations!
