October Afternoon and Bo Bunny are In!

We finally received 9 to 5 from October Afternoon! I've always been a fan of October Afternoon, but I especially love this newest release from them. I took home almost everything from the new line, and wondered if I should take home more. You'll see it up front if you're in the store soon.

We heard lots of comments about the newest from Bo Bunny. The three new lines are absolutlely amazing! We have Hello Sunshine, Camp-A-Lot, and (the customer favorite) Little Miss. Bo Bunny is a big seller these days, and I see it getting gobbled up by discerning scrapbook fans. Get yours while it's in stock.

Hope you enjoyed MM!

I sure did! I found lots of great inspiration and couldn't wait to rush home and start creating with my new purchases. Of course, I bought lots of great 6x6 paper pads and have used one of them to make samples for another 6x6 class. This time the focus will be on squares. And for embellishments, I chose a series of butterfly punches. If you've been enjoying the series, or if you'd like to join in for the first time, mark your calendars. The next class will be Wednesday June 13, 2012 from 6-9pm. The fee is $24 and we'll make FOUR 12x12 layouts in class. The best part is, you get to pick out the 6x6 paper pad you'll be using. Soft and subtle, bright and cheery, antiqued and distressed - the choice is yours! Hope to see you there!

New For You!

I have some more catching up to do... Busy weekend, right?! Here's what's new in the store. In addition to the new Studio Calico line-up, we recieved new Crate Paper and Amy Tangerine Sketchbook from American Crafts! I do have some bad news - they will not be releasing any of the washi tapes from these lines (manufacturing issues). But we do still have some other items from the collections we're waiting for, which should be shipping soon.

We also received the new stamps from Hero Arts - adorable! Plus, the new dies and embossing folders arrived from Sizzix! Yes, it contains the Tim Holtz release, too. See you this week!

More Weekend Fun

In addition to Kelly Purkey's visit to the store, we had our rep, Alan, from QuicKutz visit.  While he was here, he gave away hundreds of dollars (literally) of dies!  He demonstrated the new Genius Platform that allows you to use QK dies easily in a Cuttlebug or other machine... it's genius!

In addition to his visit on Friday, the weekend was full and busy - tons of giveaways, great food and tons of scrapbooking fun! Our next weekend crop will be in July... See you there!

Kelly Purkey's Follow-Up

Kelly's visit, and both classes, were a hit at Scrappy Chic this past weekend! She taught a group how to make a couple layouts using Mr. Huey's and masks. Her second class drew quite a crowd, and everyone left with an adorable misted mini album. Here are a couple pictures from the class.
