Wait - there's more!

I keep seeing more new products I want to tell you about... We have 2 new styles of Thickers from American Crafts (and more on the way), that I love! They're great for everday use.

We also have the new Campfire line from October Afternoon. It's a little bit of a departure from their norm, but adorable nonetheless.

Valentine's Already?

Yes - we are getting Valentine's lines in already! We have the newest Independent Retailer Exclusive line from We R Memory Keepers, called Be My Valentine. This line is full of adorable embellishments, $1 stamps, die-cut papers and more.

Graphic 45 is Here!

Once Upon a Springtime is a gorgeous new line from Graphic 45, which is now in stock! This line is full of bunnies, fairies, and everything else Spring (yes, they're thinking that far ahead). I think all G45 fans, even those who aren't, are going to want to pick some of this up for themselves.

After-Thanksgiving Madness

Well, now that the dust has settled, I have a few new items to tell you about. Hopefully you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with loved ones!

We have new Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Bundles - Coolio, Nifty 50s and Rock Princess to name a few. There are new stamps (including extra large gorgeous sets) from Tattered Angels - the girls are fighting over who's taking them home, so act fast! :) We have the mini compasses, puzzle pieces and other ephemera back in stock for you altered art buffs.

I don't recall blogging about the Tim Holtz Vagabond Sizzix machine. So in case I didn't, it's here! They're limited in quantity, but this would make a great Christmas gift for someone (hint, hint).

Plus - we have an after-Thanksgiving deal for you! Cosmo Cricket's Halfway Cafe line has always been a favorite (an oldie but a goodie if you will). We have Halfway Cafe assortments for $5.99 while supplies last (a $12.69 value). If you're a Cosmo fan like me you'll want to pick one of these up!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We're getting ready to spend the holiday with our loved ones, and I'm very excited! We want to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. We also hope you can make the Black Friday sale we have planned for this weekend. The deals are amazing! We've been working on getting the store set up all day today, and it's really coming together. See you there!

The Tree is Up!

We've been busy the last few days... Despite having a computer in 'the clinic', we've plugged away at our Black Friday preparations. One of my top items was to get the tree up in time for Friday. We brought back the 14' tree! It was in hibernation for a couple years, but it's back in all its glory... all 14 feet of it. Hopefully you get a chance to stop in and see it! You can check out the tree when you come in to pick up the amazing deals we have going on Friday, beginning at 8am. See you then!

And It Keeps on Coming . . .

Ranger's ATC cards, tags, and canvas trading cards are here. We've also been unpacking boxes from May Arts with many new gorgeous ribbons--silks, sheers, and grosgrain just to mention a few. Jenni Bowlin ink dabbers will add color to your projects, too!

You have to check out Kaiser Crafts After Five and Homemade paper collections and embellishments including beautiful crocheted ribbons and doilies. And for those of you who have been waiting, the Studio AE November stamp collection has arrived.

They're here....

I teased the other day (maybe on our Facebook fan page) about a couple changes going on at the store. Well, I'd like to welcome something new to Scrappy Chic (drumroll, please). I welcome... the American Crafts basics ribbon display! To see a list of ribbons that goes on forever only brings nightmares of long hours entering product in the computer. But when you see this thing in all of its glory, I think you'll flip. We've got most of it up on the wall and filled. Just a few more boxes to go. Trust me, this thing was delivered to us on a semi truck! Since I don't like to keep things a secret for too long, I'll post a photo of the display so you know what you're in for. :) Enjoy!

New Liquid Pearls in the House!

Ranger offers new colors; new formulation; new Liquid Pearls! Here's what Ranger has to say about this cool product:

Liquid Pearls Dimensional Pearlescent Paint Ranger Ink: "Liquid Pearls has been revitalized! A new palette of 15 beautiful colors in an improved pearlescent formula! The new Liquid Pearls formula has a more vivid shimmer and pearly finish for the finishing touch on any craft project. Liquid Pearls are a versatile, waterproof pearlescent paint designed especially for decorating paper and fabric. The bottle’s built-in easy flow tip is handy to use as a dimensional paint to accent scrapbook pages, cards and mixed-media artwork. Hand-washable, the paints are ideal for fabric applications such as wearable art, quilting and home d├ęcor projects."

We have the full display of new colors - be sure to check them out!

And then there was more...

I can't forget about the new Sew Easy tool and accessories from We R Memory Keepers! Many of you have been asking when this will be in. Well, it's here! We've been working on getting it all in the computer (there are several adorable floss colors in the collection). We also have a series of embossed tags from We R Memory Keepers. They're super cute (and super affordable, too).

The new Art-C collection arrived for you mixed media buffs. This new line from C-Thru Ruler (the same peeps who bring you Little Yellow Bicycle) is a collection of, well, tools and supplies that make experimenting exciting (as they put it). I see it no differently, and I think these products are a great addition to our store. Want to find out more about Art-C? Check out their website at http://www.myartc.com/. I think you'll like what you C!

Circa 1934 and More

We are so excited to finally have the new Circa 1934 line from Cosmo Cricket! This is a bit of a departure from the cutesy Cosmo we usually get. Trust me - it's awesome! It should be on the shelf by tomorrow - just look for me drooling over it when you arrive. :)

Did I mention we have the 3 new Cricut Seasonal Cartridges? There are Gingerbread, Trim the Tree and Winter Lace cartridges in stock now! We also now have Nifty Fifties, Paper Lace and Wrap it Up full cartridges. The Cricut Imagine is in stock, just in case it's on your Christmas wish list. We may not be carrying all of the Imagine cartridges, but would be happy to order any for you.

Winter Bracelet Class Scheduled

Do you need gift ideas for someone? Maybe you love crystal bracelets yourself? How about making one of your own with Denise? She's offering this Winter Bracelet Class on Mon 12/6 at 6pm. You'll finish a gorgeous bracelet using Swarovski crystals and sterling silver components during the class. Learn some basic techniques and how to finish your bracelet off like a pro! The class is $38 including all supplies. You just bring a couple tools and you're ready to go!

Welcome to the World of Harry Potter!

With the new move coming out, we're very excited that Creative Imaginations released their new Harry Potter scrapbooking line just in time! We have papers, stickers, a very cool alphabet, all in classic wizardry style. Check out this dark, mysterious line next time you're in!

Webster's Pages is Here!

We've waited so long for this, and I can tell you now - it was worth the wait! The four new lines are Hollywood Vogue, Waiting for Santa, Sweet Season and WonderFall. The papers are enough to stand on their own, but the stickers and new embellishments just put it over the top. You've got to check these out! Hopefully we'll have them on the shelf by the end of the day. We just need to do a little shifting.

New Basic Grey and more...

We received the new Curio and Marjolaine lines from Basic Grey. These two lines are both amazing in their own way. I think Curio is the one many of you have been waiting for. Vintage and hip - papers and embellishments. Marjolaine reminds me of Periphery - similar colors, but less grungy - very nice.

We received yet another shipment of Tim Holtz dies and folders from Sizzix. I think we're all stocked up on the Winter line!

The Street Lace line from Die Cuts with a View is also here. This is a great line for girls, teens, anything calling for hot pink, black, just beautiful.

A Few Newbies...

I don't think I blogged about the new line from KI Memories - so cute! The line is based on a calendar theme, but the pieces can go with anything. The bright colors and beautiful borders, stickers, papers, etc. can be paired with almost any theme!

There are two new lines from Doodlebug in stock as well. Bon Appetit and their home-themed line are adorable.

We also have two new lines from My Mind's Eye. Fine & Dandy is an amazing new line - classic MME - in multiple color schemes. There's also a new Valentine's line called State of the Heart.

Winners, Winners, Everywhere!

We have a couple important winners to announce...

First, we want to announce the winner of our Cricut Gypsy Giveaway: Carol Taylor wins her very own Gypsy! She hasn't called us back yet, but there's a message on her machine at home telling her the good news - congratulations!

Secondly, we offered a 'guess the candy corn' contest leading up to Halloween, and we have a winner. Caroline Eberhard guessed there were 1,396 candy corn in the jar, which was closest to the actual number - 1,560. Congratulations, Caroline! You win a Making Memories album! Thanks, everyone, for your participation. We hope you all had a fantastic Halloween.
