The boys have Best Buy, but we've got Beach Scrapbooks!

Is anyone ready to hear about our Black Friday sales???

I am working on them now, and they are AMAZING!!!

December Calendar

Can you believe it's almost December?!? Time flies when you're having fun!

During this busy month, we've scaled down our classes because we know that everyone is busy preparing for the big day. Look for more exciting classes and new instructors in the New Year!

There are, however, some important events to highlight in December:

* December 6: Kris from QuicKutz will be here ALL DAY! Stay tuned for more details!

* December 6: Holiday Open House 1- 4 p.m. (more details to come)

* December 18: Kid Drop / Dad Shop 5 - 8 p.m. This is the perfect time for your husband and kids to come in, look at your wish list (you HAVE filled one out, haven't you??) and get your Christmas present! We'll have movies and popcorn for the kids...discounts AND gift wrapping for the husbands. Be sure to tell them about this special night, otherwise, you might wind up with another pair of fuzzy socks to go with last year's Christmas sweater :)

* Kid's Classes: Since the kids have off 2 whole weeks this Christmas, we've set up 3 different classes for them. Get them OFF the Wii and ON to something creative!

Check out the calendar for other classes, a Locals Only day and free crops. Plus, Santa and Mrs. Claus will be visiting Red Mill Commons!

Today, I received an email from a woman who purchased our QK Sea Creatures border die:

Hi! My border come home to me in Sweden yesterday - 5 days! :-D Thanks, it is wounderful!!!!

Wow...only 5 days to Sweden!

Adorable new QK Release!

Woodland Creatures have taken over our store, and they are simply adorable!

Click here to see all the new dies, including sample layouts and cards. (double click on the new release image, then scroll all the way down to see the samples)

Seriously, how can you resist?!

Valentine's paper...already?!?

Brand new from Three Bugs in a Rug...the new Home Grown and Bee Mine collections.

Bee Mine is actually a Valentine's Day theme, but we couldn't resist the bees! They are adorable and don't have to be used for Valentine's at all. The papers and stamps here are only a sample...the others are just as cute, if not cuter!

And, since Valentine's paper is starting to make an appearance, it's a sure thing that our Christmas paper selection will be shrinking. Get your holiday paper/embellishments now while the gettin' is good!

Need a good laugh?!?

What a great day we had yesterday during our Crop Scene Investigation...LOTS of make-n-takes, giveaways and good clean fun (has anyone seen my tiny paper gun?!?). Since we always take pictures of people smiling, we wanted something different for our CSI album. We wanted mug shot faces. Mean, angry, drunk - whatever. The rule was that you could NOT smile. Some people had a tough time b/c for some reason, mug shot faces make you LAUGH! But, we were successful in getting some really great mug shots! Check it out...

Saturday, November 15, 2008

Mug shots - TODAY at Beach Scrapbooks!

Join us today from 1 - 5 p.m. for our Crop Scene's FREE!

Also, bring your camera and have your very own mug shot taken :)

See the post below for all the details...

(Please note: these celebrities will not be in attendence... nor did we take their mug shots. They just make us laugh!)

Pictures from our Donna Downey weekend!

Warning: There are LOTS of pictures! What a great weekend - so much energy and creativity. We had an absolute blast...did you?

A few pictures from Scrap Pink...

Gorgeous new papers from Scribble Scrabble!

It's hard to see from these images how pretty these papers are, but trust me...they are beautiful! The Autumn Afternoon line has trees, apples and leaves in nice, warm autumn colors. Suzy Snowflake boasts snowflakes, stars and blue spruce branches - perfect for those cold, winter days that lie ahead. Both collections have a strip of paper at the bottom where the UPC code is located...this way, you can actually use it (the opposite side of the UPC code) instead of trimming it and throwing it away. A GREAT way to NOT waste paper :)
