National Scrapbook Day...Month!

Can you believe that National Scrapbooking Day is almost here again?! Well, last year my hubby came home from Afghanistan on National Scrapbooking Day! Of course I closed to meet him, and we had a good laugh that the military would send him home on such an important day in our crafting world.  Alas, it has been a year (boy- time sure does fly) and we get to be together and do some fun things to celebrate this year.

We couldn't pin it down to just one day with every one's schedules, so we decided to celebrate a little all month long!  We are starting this weekend! On Saturday, April 30 we will be having fun introducing a new line by My Mind's Eye...Stella and Rose!  We will have a FREE Make N' Take for the first 25 people beginning at noon!  If you haven't seen this line...It's AWESOME!!! Here's an adorable layout that was created using the Stella and Rose line...



Join me (Ivy) later on Saturday, April 30 at 3:00 p.m. for our Mother's Day Project Class! There are still a few spots left and it makes a beautiful gift.  The class includes the frame that you will be crackle painting yourself! Take a look :-)...


There's still time to get "So Sophie"...but time is running out! New lines are coming in daily and it's time to clear some of your favorites out.  Check your e-mail for this week's coupon!

We are continuing a great weekend on Sunday with the first part in our series of photography classes!  We still have a few spots left so call or stop in to sign up!  Wedding and Portraiture Photographer, Mahmood Fazal of Mood Photography will join us to show you how to get the most out of your point and shoot digital cameras! Class starts at 1:30 p.m.

Bet you don't know everything your camera can do...

Ever wonder what all those buttons were for?

Guess who's coming back for an extra special CARD TECHNIQUE Class on National Scrapbooking Day... BETHANY!  She has a jam packed technique class that you are "FAUX-SURE" to LOVE!  She will teach you three different faux techniques while creating several "FAUX - FABULOUS" Projects including a gift box!  Class will be on Saturday, May 7 @ 10:30 a.m.

Don't forget to check our calendar.  There are more updates to come, but our Mommy & Me crop, 12 hour crop, & many classes are already scheduled! Sign up soon...class sizes are limited!

Updates, Photography Classes & More!

I have a ton of exciting news!  I can't wait to share it so I decided to stay up and finish the post before getting a little shut eye.  We'll start with updates first.  We had a wonderful class this past Sunday and I really enjoyed kicking back and doing what I love most...a layout!  It turned out great and it was really fun using Basic Grey's new line "Life of the Party".  It's fun & colorful and can be used in so many different ways.  My title was "It's Official...Someday came too fast".  It's going to showcase my high school senior because I'm already having a hard time with him being so close to leaving home.  I made the page very universal and everyone made their own "It's Official" title.  Some were It's Official...I Love You, It's Official...you're Toothless, It's Official...I Love Disney, It's Official...the World's Cutest Twins, etc!  How Fun! I will be teaching another layout project just in time for Mother's Day! Look for it National Scrapbook Day (April 30th)!





 
I am even more excited to tell you all that we are coming full circle and are elated to bring you all our newest line of classes...PHOTOGRAPHY & PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS!  That's right!  Better photographs mean better pages/projects!  We spend so much time (and money) to create beautiful pages and sometimes the photo isn't what we hoped it would be.  It's time to learn what to do to get the photo we want.  It is supposed to be all about the photo anyway...right?! LOL!  Even if we do dress our children up in outfits to match our paper!!! LOL!  We begin our photography classes on May 1 with an Intro to Digital Point n' Shoot Photography.  We will also be offering Digital SLR classes and Photoshop Elements Classes!  How exciting is that???!!!  Please take a moment to meet our Photography Instructor - Mr. Mahmood Fazal of "Mood Photography"!

Our photography and photoshop instructor, Mahmood Fazal, is a professional wedding and portraiture photographer here in the Charleston Area.  Mahmood owns "Mood Photography" and enjoys teaching the art of photography,  To view some of Mahmood's work please visit his website at http://www.moodphotography.net/ .  You'll want to sign up for classes early! These WILL fill quickly and space is limited!!!

If that wasn't exciting enough...I've got MORE!!! LOL!  We have SALES going on everywhere in the store!!!  Those who know me, know why...I NEED THE RACKS!!! LOL!  I have more new merchandise already here and more stuff shipping daily.  Soooo...

And The Winner IS....

Our Semi Annual Yard Sale was a HUGE hit this past weekend! It was serious business for crafters here! Our line started forming at about 6 a.m. EST.  Our doors opened promptly at 8 a.m., to over twenty excited shoppers!  They came, they saw, they bought!!! We had great deals and super items thanks to our 23 consignors!  We ran out of tables...we were elbow to elbow...the excitement was overwhelming at times, but it just kept getting better!  It was so much fun to see all of the great deals, the newer scrapbookers found, and it was just as much fun finding deals, for the more seasoned, in our craft. 

It takes a lot of work and effort to put one of these sales together and I have to thank each and every one of our consignors for going through their "stashes", and deciding to part with some of their prize possessions.  I'm a paper hoarder...but if you ask my hubby...I hoard it ALL! LOL!  I also have to thank Valerie B. for helping me organinze everything all week long! My hubby and children always put in a lot of work, and once again, they were faithfully by my side helping every step of the way, on Saturday.  Thank you ALL!!!


When we host the yard sale there is usually one seller that might stand out from the rest, due to the high volume of sales.  This sale is no exception! There were certainly quite a few sellers and quite a few were serious contenders for the "TOP" spot, but there was one that we would like to congratulate on an EXTREME JOB WELL DONE...PAM ROBERTSON CONGRATS!!!!  :-) See you ALL at our Fall Sale!

Oh...did you notice that there were two numbers? LOL! Well, they have a single random list number generator on their first page and another that gives you the entire list of numbers in a random order.  I decided to do both randomizers AND since I did...it wasn't fair to choose one or the other.  SOOOO both of these blog followers will receive the Beautiful Blog Candy by Pink Paisley!!! CONGRATS! Please make sure we have your e-mail addresses so that we can contact you for your mailing information.
