Free Coupons for Scrapbooking

Update 27 Dec 2011: Since this post is over a year old now and still getting visits, I feel I should add an update. While getting coupons is one of the benefits of signing up for the Michaels mailing list, I'm no longer sure whether it is a 40% off one as it was when I posted. If you wish to sign up anyway, the signup is near the bottom of the store's homepage.


For those that prefer not to sign up to a mailing list, there is another options. You can click on the link to the weekly ad at the top of the page. There is usually a coupon in the ad which can be printed.

I've spoke before about family tree scrapbooking. If you've missed those posts, a family tree scrapbook is similar to a traditional scrapbook. The difference lies in the fact that it serves as a record of your ancestry in book form. You can include documents, photographs and other mementos that show your family's heritage.

My sister is a big fan of traditional scrapbooking and she recently came across a nice coupon for her favorite scrapbook supply store. Michaels stocks a number of supplies, not only for scrapbooking, but also other arts and crafts. If you sign up for their email list, you get a 40% off coupon to be used on any single non-sale item in the store. Just scroll down the page to the bottom left corner to sign up and get your coupon.

I picked up the Heritage Scrap Kit by K&Company/ancestry.com for less than $10. It contains 12 designer pages, 8 grand adhesions, 8 die-cut stickers, 70 clearly yours and 12 die-cut cardstock. Some of the features of the kit include a family tree which holds 10 pictures, a page for your family's story, a family group sheet, and a pedigree sheet, just to name a few.


There were other kits and papers that can be used for family scrapbooking as well. If you have a Michael's nearby or are traveling near one, print out a coupon and check out what they have. Be sure to check the receipt and bag after you check out. My receipt yesterday had a 50% off coupon and the bag had a paper which had more coupons.

I'll be getting started on my first family tree scrapbook soon. Keep an eye out for future Free Genealogy Resources post that show my progress.

    Once the home page for Micheal's finishes loading, scroll down the page and look on left side just above the red bar. You should see a box that says Get 40% off any one regular price item coupon. Click on it and it will take you to a page where you can sign up. You get the coupon after registering.
