Life is good.....

Plans are being finalized for National Scrapbook Day.  We are going to have a blast on Saturday , May 1st at Precious Scraps.  The day will be full of mini workshops featuring heat embossing, resist embossing, glass etching, candles, cards, scrap pages, air brushing with copics,  crop time and more.  We will break for lunch and you can go out or call in a pizza.  There will be door prizes, contest and EVERYONE will receive a special gift bag from Precious Scraps.  The price will be announced very soon so be sure to check back to the blog or check us out on Facebook at Precious Scraps.  Be sure to mark your calendars to call and sign up.  Space will be limited.  Registration begins on Thursday April 1st. (Cost will be announced prior to opening registration)

Things have been hopping around Precious Scraps.  We have been receiving boxes almost daily.  We now have the new Lush line from My Minds Eye.  It is stunning.  I am having trouble deciding which one is my favorite color scheme.  Check it out......
Is this not simply wonderful.  The top two papers and the all the books are flocked.  We are receiving the brads and rhinestone brads today (they are not in the photos above but you can get a peek below)

I am in the process of unpacking the Quite Contrary line from My Minds Eye as well so be sure to stop in and check it out.  You can see a preview of it here.   It will be out by the weekend.

I've also added a new line to the store, Paper Loft.  I love the simplicity of this line and all the muted colors.
Here is a partial display of some of the beautiful papers in the Grandmas House line currently in the store.

We also have the Alpha stickers and Giant Tags that accompany the line.....

We've also added new Sports, Hunting, Fishing, Camping,  Travel, 4-H, Carvival, Cooking, Cowboy, Four-Wheeling, and Muddin' papers.  Here in Dover a lot of summer fun is enjoyed at the local Mud Bogs.

We have the some of the NEW colors from Tim Holtz distress ink pads from Ranger. We have Barn Door, Bundled Sage, Chipped Sapphire, Wild Honey, Stormy Sky, Crushed Olive, Forrest Moss, as well as adding a couple of old favorites, Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed.  We've also restocked our embossing pads with several different brand options.

We've enlarged our scrapbook selections with  more 12x12 Scrapbooks as well as 8x8 books. We have some beautifully embossed leather 12 x 12 albums in an array of colors. We also have added some Pre-Designed 8x8 Books for babies, mother, father, friend, and travel, all just waiting for you to simply add your photos.  Here is a sample of the Friends Album:

We have also restocked our custom school papers for the Stewart County Area. We have ordered more Senior Year Albums.  If you have not seen these you really should stop in and check them out.  They make an excellent graduation gift and are custom designed with SCHS colors and Rebel papers.  We will be adding Henry County to the selection this fall.  If you would like for us to consider adding your are schools please contact us.

Our 2010 Graduation Papers and stickers are starting to arrive as well as our Easter selections.  We have added a few "tools" to choose from as well such as chalk, flock, glitter and much more.  We've also restocked our Kaiser Craft kits and have more coming in.  We've added the packs of rings that accompany these projects. Here is a peek at one of the Easter sets we've received.

We have been busy outside of Precious Scraps as well.  Larry and I went shopping at Lowe's on Friday after having our taxes done (we needed a little pick me up...).  Anyway, they were having a great sale and we have a 70ft x 4 ft planter bed to fill up.  We selected Firepower Nandina, Golden Euonymus, Sunny Knockout Roses, Dward Burford Holly, Gardinia (I know they probably will not make it here but I had to try, the scent is worth it), Fashion Orange Azalea, Crimson Red Azalea, Mountain Fire Pieris and Swarf Cavatine Pieris as well as 5 rose bushes, Oklahoma, Medallion Tea Rose, Kordes Perfecta, Sun Flare Floribunda, and Oregold Hybrid Tea Rose.  I know,  we have our work cut out for use.  I also have some Hostas to transplant there until everything starts to fill in as well as planting some flowers with the weather gets a little warmer.    Here are a few pictures for your enjoyment.

 We have a total of 18 shrubs and 3 rose bushes in the planter and then we planted a yellow rose bush in each corner of the fence in the parking lot.  I cannot wait to see all of these in bloom. I don't have a green thumb at all but my friend Denise does and she has agreed to look after the plants this summer while she is at the store.  She will be opening the store during the weekdays beginning sometime after May 7th.  We will post the days and hours as soon as they are available.  Here is a quick pic of Larry and Denise (it's a good thing neither of them get on here because they would kill me...hehehe)

Almost forgot...look what my friend Judy Key made.  Is it not stunning!

Well I guess that is about enough for today.  I may not update often but when I do......  Thanks for stopping by Precious Scraps.
