Updates and More...

OK, so here goes.  I have been trying to find an hour or so to sit down and update my blog.  I have come to the realization that "it ain't gonna happen".  So, I have decided to post as I have time, with smaller post more often.  I want to keep you updated on all the new items coming into the store as well as all the new exciting events going on.

TECH 101 -- We had our first TECH 101 class last month and it was a success.  Everyone who came truly enjoyed the class and left with a ton of knowledge to further their creativity.  Tonight is our next class, Flowers 101.  Denise has been busy making flowers from everything she can get her hands on.  I promise you this is going to be a great class.  If you have not noticed the schedule to the left be sure to take a look and call and sign up for a class.  These hands-on classes are great to further you experience with products and push them to their limit.  Who knows, you may even go home with a project or two.  Here is just a SMALL sampling of some of the flowers Denise has come up with for tonight.

Look what just arrived:

New Bo Bunny Jazmyne line has arrived.  This is a gorgeous line of purple and green hues.  With both embossed and die cuts  papers as well as all the embellishments to go along with them.  Stop in and see the beautiful page created by Denise showcasing the Jazmyne line and Kayla, one of our customers daughters, from Prom. Here is a quick peak:

My Mind'e Eye

MeadowLark Dawn
New My My Minds Eye MeadowLark has arrived.  Here is a layout I created using the MeadowLark Dawn.  My Mind's Eye has been gracious  enough to provide retailers with instruction for classes using this line.  We will have a printout of one of the selected layouts available to our customers when you make a purchase with this line.  No class sign up require.  Here is my take on one of those layouts.


MeadowLark Dusk
Here is the Meadow Lark Dusk.  Both sets are absolutely stunning.  Here is a page created with yet another My Mind's Eye Class printout that will be made available to you in the store.

Last for tonight is a quick glance of some of the projects from National Scrapbook Day.  We had a blast despite the terrible weather and territorial rains. 

Here is a page scrap-lifted from Scrapbook Etc. Magazine.  It utilizes several border punches. We carry all of these in the store.  For those who have been waiting on the butterfly punch at the bottom, it should be in by first of next week.   This is Jordan's prom photo when she stopped but the store.  Jordan helps me out at the store and has become a sort of "daughter on loan" to me and Larry.

 We have been having a blast at the store playing with tags, embossing and Ranger Distress Inks.  Several people ask what do you do with the tags now.  Here is a quick page I created with my great-nephew Trent's first day of school photos.  I still need to add the journaling but you get the idea.... 

We I think that is about it for tonight.  I will try to be back again tomorrow night with more new merchandise as well as some more projects from National Scrapbook Day.  Thanks for stopping by Precious Scraps.
