New Webster's Pages, Ribbon Storage and a new vendor!

We have the newest line, Sweet as Cherry Pie, from Webster's pages. This is a great, vintage-y line that would be perfect for a recipe book and more. We also have the new ribbon spooler and storage from Best Scrapbook products. Plus, we finally received our order from Canvas Corp., a new manufacturer for us. They make great wood canvas products which you'll see decorated amazingly in Hailey's upcoming classes.

Cricut Club Quarterly Event

We're hosting our quarterly Cricut Club event on Sunday, 5/31. Club members will be creating a 'scraplifted' layout using their Cricut, including their own Cricut-made embellishments. Customers, visitors and club members will all be able to vote from noon to 5pm on Sunday for their favorite. Voting will close at 5pm, and the winner will be announced before 6pm. Everyone is welcome!

Make a Great Escape with Making Memories

I'm so excited that their new Great Escape line arrived! I put it out on the shelf today, and it's even more marvelous in person. I love the specialty papers and the embellishments... I already snuck some for myself as I was putting them out. This is the line that we will be using for our Shop Hop mini book (which is now in the store, by the way!).

Chatterbox Albums Finally Arrived!

The long-awaited (and absolutely adorable) mini albums from Chatterbox are finally here! There is canvas, denim and wood veneer - all amazing. I don't see these lasting too long...

Happy Memorial Day!

Hopefully everyone is able to enjoy this beautiful weather and celebrate this holiday with friends or family. We took the kids to the downtown Farmington parade this year (a tradition for us), and will be having a couple friends over for a bbq later. I'm glad the weather cooperated today, and hope you all have a wonderful day!

By the way, if you haven't checked your newsletter, there are some great specials that run through the beginning of this week!

The Long-Awaited October Afternoon is here!

We are so excited to see this arrive, and it is worth the wait! You'll have to check out the adorable papers and embellishments in person - they're too good to pass up. I already foresee having to reorder some of these early on... Cherry Hill and Ducks in a Row should be on the shelf by tomorrow!

Find us on Facebook

There are so many social networking tools out there now! I'm not always an early adopter of these types of things, so I surprised even myself tonight by setting the store up on Facebook! I'm already on there (personally), but you can now become a fan of Scrappy Chic on!

Checking In...

I feel out of touch since I haven't blogged in a few days! I think I'm just relieved to have things back to somewhat normal after Mega Meet, and I've been spending a lot of time with the kids and at home. My husband built a play structure in the back yard (he has some spare time nowadays) and the kids are having a blast. I'm wrapping up the newsletter tonight, so look for that in your inbox tomorrow. Enjoy this beautiful weather we've had, and I'll keep you posted when we receive more new goods!

On a side note, we'll be closed on Memorial Day, so you'll want to stock up before then in case you plan on spending your free time scrapping! It's business as usual the rest of the weekend.

More information...

Here are some images and more details on the new products we've received over the last week or so. The new Jenni Bowlin Front Porch line is adorable! There are also new mini bingo cards, journaling tickets and more. We also have the two new lines from Collage Press, and they are grungy and gorgeous! They looked even better in person (so I had to take one of each home for myself).
Creative Imaginations sent us the new Old Guys Rule line, which is all about the vehicles! For those who have guys into cars and motorcycles, these are for you! We also have the new pieces of the Narratives collection, which I also love. I can't forget the new rock baby line - boys and girls delight in the cool paper and stickers! I'll keep you posted as we get through more new boxes.

Happy Mother's Day!

To all of you who are mothers, or are like a mother to someone, Happy Mother's Day to you! My Mother's Day started off with sleeping in until 11am (which I never ever get to do) since my husband was away with the kids. We'll celebrate with dinner together, but I miss my kiddos after being at Mega Meet and the store for the last few days.

Now that Mega Meet is over, we can concentrate on opening up all those boxes of product we got last week! I saw we have new product from Collage Press, new Jenni Bowlin, new Accucut dies, new Creative Imaginations and more boxes I couldn't even get to. I'll post more information as we get through them - I can't wait to see what's inside!

Early Bird gets the goodies...

We received the new line from Cosmo Cricket - Early Bird (and boy were we). We are probably the first to have it out for sale in our area! They shipped it out the first possible day to us, and it arrived today. Unfortunately for those not going to Mega Meet, you'll have to wait until after Saturday to see it (it's there with us). It's adorable - don't worry, I bought extra.

I also saw a box from Doodlebug at the store when I stopped by there. Do you know what that means? We have their newest releases along with the new Chunky Glitter! You'll have to check out these gems - they're adorable!

Hello Making Memories!

We received (among tons of other boxes) a new shipment of goodies from Making Memories. Boy, do I mean goodies! They have a new line of embellishments - metal, vintage, shimmer alpha and journaling stickers, upholstery & fancy brads, the list goes on and on. We'll be working on them before the weekend to have up for you to see!

Also buried in those boxes are the new MM Slice cartridges! We have Sports, Spring, Words & Expressions, Travel USA, Big Kids and the new embossing tips. We also received 4 different styles of 8x8 paper pads for the Slice. I'm just as excited to see them as you!

Tomorrow morning we begin our setup at Mega Meet. Hopefully we'll see some of you there this weekend!

The List Goes on and on...

Of new things, that is! Here's what we've put out over the last couple days:

  • Donna Downey fabric tags for Prima - super cute!
  • MiMi rolling totes and embellishment bags in pink microsuede and Zebra!
  • KI Memories Juicy Summer and Baby Cakes Lines (adorable in shimmer and glitter!)
  • Imaginisce Teacher's Pet and Wild Things lines (have to have every one of the Teacher's Pet papers for my kids' pages!)
  • My Minds Eye Pretty Please and Andrea Victoria paper lines
  • My Mind's Eye Breaking Free full line (to be honest, that ones still in the box - it's huge!)

We're past mid-way through National Scrapbooking Day, and it's been an interesting one! Between the line out front at the start of the day to no power and Nestabilities dies being picked out as fast as Cabbage Patch dolls in the 80s, it's been fun! We'll be drawing our NSD prize winner about 8pm tonight, and will post their name here later! Good luck...
