National Scrapbook Day Celebration!

Did you know there is a holiday escpecially for scrapbookers? Why not honor those of us that turn our memories into lasting treasures that will be passed down from generation to generation.

Saturday, May 2, 2009 is our day! It is National Scrapbook Day. Now, what kind of scrapbook store wouldn't celebrate this amazing holiday? Better yet, how about we celebrate this special day ALL WEEKEND!

I've already made our "Big Announcement". What else could we have planned? Well, anyone whose frequentes our store knows exactly where we hide the chocolate. Now, who doesn't scrap without chocolate within arms reach? I hope I'm not the only one. You won't need to go on a hunt for our chocolate stash. As a matter of fact, it will be very inviting and rewarding!

Every customer that comes in over the weekend "holiday" will receive a special bar of chocolate with a "secret" percentage off of your entire purchase! You could be the happy recipient of 10%, 20% or 30% off! How great is that?

Lets keep adding to the mix... How about DOUBLE PUNCHES on your Reward's Card! And yes, we will include all sale items for your punches! You'll have that baby filled in no time!

How about one more? We will also be giving out a free gift to EVERY customer whose purchase is $25.00 or greater.

Sound like fun! Save the date and be sure to stop in and see us!

To Our Mommie & Me Croppers!

I wanted to say a special "Thank You" to all of our Mommie & Me Croppers. We had so much fun with the Mom's and their little darling scrapbookers that we decided to plan another event in the near future. Thank you all for attending this special day of fun and opening the world of scrapbooking up to your children. We hope to see you all at the next event.

Quality Time

Hello friends. I hope that you all had a glorious Easter. It's been a busy week at the homestead. I've enjoyed having a few days off to spend with my family. It went by way to fast.

We are giving our blog a "facelift". Please pardon my mess for the next few day.

I wanted to take a moment to remind everyone about the Mommy & Me Crop tomorrow. We are still on, and we have a full house.

Our crop scheduled for Saturday April 25th is now full! It is sure to be a fun and eventful evening.

National Scrapbooking Day is quickly approaching. I am planning on some fun events... possibly even one (or two) that I have been asked about doing more than any other event or class. Do you know what it may be??? Go ahead and guess... we'll see if you are right in the next few days.

Our designers, Karen, Sandra and myself, have been very busy getting our first scrapbook paper kit ready to launch. These kits will be perfect for those of you that are trying to get caught up on all of your scrapbooking. We are putting the finishing touches to our first release. Our focus line with be Bo Bunny's Abbey Road. I just love this paper! As soon as I have images of what you will be able to make with the kit, I will have it posted.

Until next time.

New Bo Bunny!

It's been a fun week full of new products arriving in the store. We ended the week with a shipment from Bo Bunny! Here is a peek at some of the latest!

Of course, there are brads, flowers, buttons and stickers that coordinate with our latest arrivals. These papers are simply stunning. Quite frankly, I am stuck on the U Bug Me line.
Be sure to stop in and see "What's New"!
See you soon.
