Ultimate Blitsy Fan Winner!

We have a winner for this week's giveaway! This week Blitsy's Ultimate fan is...

Laura posted a comment on our blog that said,

"I am your Ultimate Fan because most of my craft/art supplies have come from your store! I don't dart out to the local craft store first, I wait to see what is on sale at Blitsy. I am fairly new to scrapbooking/art journaling, so I need, well want, 1 of everything. Thanks to Blitsy, I have been able to add to my art arsenal. On Monday, Wednesday & Fridays, I do check out the new sales check the expiring ones, as well, to see anything I might have missed. Blitsy has introduced to me so many cool new ideas at affordable prices and for that I am so thankful!"

Laura won a $50 credit to! We wonder what she will buy with her winnings!? Check out Blitsy to see what her choices are. Thank you to ALL of you for being such loyal Blitsy fans! We'll post another giveaway each Tuesday to show our appreciation!

Happy Crafting!

Welcome to the Blitsy Blog!

Welcome to the Blitsy Blog! This is really just a soft launch of our blog to bring you important updates, announcements, and maybe even some fun contests! You can find us all over the Web - most notably right now on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, & Instagram! If you're on any of those networks we should connect!

If you're new to Blitsy let us tell you a little about ourselves.... In a nutshell, we offer craft supplies to consumers (you!) at up to 70% off retail. We offer new sales every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday starting at 11:00am CST. To buy anything on our site you have to become a member. The good news is that the membership is completely FREE! You just create an account and start reaping the benefits of savings!

Blitsy launched on Black Friday of 2011. Crafters like you have been finding out about us ever since! We have started this company with a strong emphasis on paper crafting products, but pretty soon you will be seeing even more than that! We want to be your destination for ALL things craft. Think jewelry, needle crafts, and more... Here is a sample of some of the brands you can currently find on Blitsy.


Each new sale lasts a total of 7 days or until the items are BLITSED (sold out). That means that you have to act fast to get your favorite products at our discounted price. Once you put an item in your cart you have 75 minutes to complete your purchase, or it will be put back on the shelves for another customer to buy up.

Oh, before we send you off to check out Blitsy, we wanted to tell you how you can earn products on our site for free! We have an awesome referral program that basically pays you to tell your friends and family about us. Any new member you send an email invite to, or who signs up via your personal link (found in your Account section once you become a member), will earn you a $10 credit when your referral makes his or her first purchase! We have a lot of members who have really taken advantage of this program and have literally ordered thousands of dollars in craft supplies for free! We think it's such a good opportunity for you that we will create another blog post dedicated just to telling you more about the referral program.

Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to drop us a comment to let us know you're here!
