Happy New Year!

It's the last day of 2013.  What are you plans?  Do they include crafting?  Perhaps they include shopping with a gift card...  Either way, we hope you have a safe, crafty and wonderful New Year! 

Are you thinking about which projects you want to start in 2014?  I have a great idea for you... Now is the best time to start pocket scrapbooking!  We have tons of products from Project Life, Albums Made Easy by We R, Sn@p! and more, that can help you start off the new year on the right track.  Make it easy, make it fun, and make it yourself!

You're My Hero

The debut of Hero Arts 2014 catalog is here!  Not only do we have the catalog (he he), but tons of great new products feature in it!  We also just received all of the new inks, dabbers, etc. today.  You'll want to check them out while they're in stock.  Plus, Margie will be doing a make & take with the new products after her Free Demo this Sunday, 12/22 from 3-4pm.  See you there!

It's that time of year...

Things seem to get so busy and time seems to go so quickly.  The last weeks of the year are always crazy for me... You, too?  Instead of sugar plum fairies dancing in your head, do you have scrapbooking items dancing in yours?  Be sure to let your loved ones know you'd love a gift card from Scrappy Chic!  Starting today, we'll be offering a special gift card deal - purchase $50 in gift cards (on one to two cards in one transaction), and get a $10 store credit to use between 12/26 and 12/31/13, FREE!

Here are some other items you can have dancing in your head, since they're new...
  • KaiserCraft - Key to My Heart and Paradiso (makes me want to take a tropical vacation)
  • Authentique - Precious collection
  • We R Memory Keepers - Hip Hip Hooray!
We'll be wrapping up our adopted family project this week, and will continue to take donations until Wednesday or so.  Most of the necessities and requests from the list have been purchased, but monetary donations toward the items purchased, as well as grocery/gas gift cards are a great idea.  A huge thank you goes out to those who have contributed so far!

American Crafts, Ooh La La!

We finally made it through the American Crafts boxes! Some of it is for Black Friday (you'll find out eventually, right?), and the rest is on the shelf! This includes Print Shop from Studio Calico, Autumn Crisp from American Crafts, and some new Project Life kits and accessories.

Have you seen the wood stamps from American Crafts and their partners lately?   You should check these adorable individual stamps out! They're must-haves (and would make great stocking stuffers, hint, hint).

It's a Box Avalanche Kind of Week

We received a shipment from American Crafts that had so many boxes, they delivered it on a pallett!  Needless to say, it'll take us a few days to get the products into the computer.  But, so far, I've seen Studio Calico's PrintShop collection, as well as Autumn Crisp from American Crafts.  We'll keep you posted as we reveal what's in the rest of the boxes!

Our Golden Ticket Giveaway brought in a great crowd this past Saturday.  It was nice to see so many familiar faces!  This is only the first part of our anniversary celebration, which takes place this month.

We recently received the Silent Night collection from October Afternoon, after a long wait. But it's adorable! We also have three new lines from KaiserCraft - Tea Break, Garage Days and the Looking Glass (think Alice).

What's New This Week?

I'm happy to tell you about a new company that we're carrying at Scrappy Chic: Hazel & Ruby - an adorable combination of style and creativity.  They're starting out with two collections - Chalk it Up and Gone Typo.  They're featured on the end of an aisle near the register this weekend.  You should check it out when you're in!

We have a few other new collections that arrived this week (some of which are still waiting for a home on the shelves).  Basic Grey's new RSVP and Capture line is in.  We also just received (wait for it...) their new 2014 calendars!  They're not on the shelf yet, but will be before the weekend's out. 

Authentique offers us Glistening, Natural and Tradition - all beautiful collections.  Jillibean Soup (which is now part of Hampton Art) sent us their Cold Avocado Soup collection, and several die-cut pages, embellishments, etc.  Hampton Art also sent new stamps and their Vintologie items (like their picture 'filter' die cuts).  We have Ali Edwards' latest Studio AE stamp from Technique Tuesday, as well as the Optimist collection from Prima (one of our favorites).  Echo Park's Omre and Times & Seasons 2 collections are in stock.  Little Yellow Bicycle's Making Merry collection is on the shelf.

Phew!  That's a lot!  Did I mention that we now have adhesive-backed solid cardstock from Silhouette in stock?  You can find it in our die-cutting section near the register.

The weekend crop is underway, and that means we'll be open until midnight tonight as well.  Maybe that's a good excuse to stop in and see what's new, no? :)
