National Scrapbook Day Crop - May 1st - 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. - $10. Registration is now OPEN! on the lookout for all the other COOL things we've got planned for that day :)

We posted this on our Facebook page this morning and, as of right now, there are only SIX seats left. WOW! It's filling up fast :)

So...if you're interested...give us a call or stop by and register NOW!

We interrupt this blog for a good cause...

If you're anything like me, your hall closet could use a good cleaning out!

Meet my friend Rachel. She's an art teacher for both middle and elementary schools, and, thanks to a grant by the Virginia Beach Education Foundation, she's making a difference.

Rachel collects gently used sheets and pillowcases, does a little sewing, teaches her students how to get creative with atypical recycled materials and makes these fabulous dresses for women and girls in Africa.

If you'd like to donate any sheets and/or pillowcases, just throw them in a bag and drop them off at Beach Scrapbooks. Rachel will do the rest :)

a few new Tim Holtz goodies...

Here is a SAMPLE of the Tim Holtz products we received yesterday :) (As always, click to enlarge.)
Keys and Keyholes!

The new 6x12 grungepaper is IN...the 12x12 is on backorder (sorry!). When it arrives, we'll let you know.

Ooooh...grungeboard letters in the perfect SMALLER size. Great for layouts AND cards.

Little feet for your altered projects...perfect for the four corners of a box!

What time is it?!? Time to get a clock! (as lame as it is, my kids love that joke)

CUTE little charms...

Funny story about this one...I was entering these in our computer system. Well, it only gives you a certain about of space for the description. I wanted to put in "Accoutrements Buttons" but it would only let me enter "Accoutrements Butt". It's the silly things in life that make me laugh sometimes :) I will say, though, these Accoutrements (Butts) look much better in person than they do on this computer screen.

7 Gypsies and Tim Holtz

Check out the new Artist Printers Trays from 7Gypsies! It's made of wood and has a little "handle" on top that makes it easy to hang. I'm thinking it would make a PERFECT Mother's Day gift...add some patterned paper, a few embellishments and your photos to make a one-of-a-kind piece of art! (And, speaking of paper, there's new 7Gyspies paper in the store, too!)

Also NEW...from Tim Holtz...2 paper packs (there is a third, but it's not here yet) and an AMAZING book filled with ideas and techniques for practically every product he's ever designed! (If you are a Facebook friend, you'll FOR SURE want to check out our status from yesterday!)

For more info on these products, check out Tim's blog entry.

Things that make us HAPPY!

First...let us wish you a VERY, HAPPY first day of SPRING! It's been a long, cold winter, and we all deserve this WARMTH :)

We know something else that may bring a smile to your face. Remember how sad we were when Kokuyo stopped distributing their tape runners? Many of us LOVED the blue Dot'n'Roller. Well...consider this first day of Spring your lucky day.

We obtained a secret stash of these tape runners! They were repackaged by Elmer's (as shown below)...BUT...they are the SAME tape runner. In fact, on the back of the packaging, it even says Kokuyo!

Please note...there are NO REFILLS. This is a CLOSE-OUT deal, which means once we sell out, that's it.

We've only got 100 of them, so hurry in :)

May you have all the happiness
and luck that life can hold—
And at the end of all your rainbows
may you find a pot of gold. addition to St. Paddy's's also HUMP DAY!

Last week's Hump Day Kit sold out in only a few hours. I'm thinking this one is going to be a repeat of last week! Brought to you by the lovely and talented Melissa, this week's Hump Day Kit features a BRAND NEW product by Creative Imaginations called...

...REAL WOOD! You can emboss it, die-cut it, stamp-it, crimp it AND even paint it! It is available in two thicknesses in both Birch (lighter) and Cherry (darker). And...the thinner pieces can even go in your Silhouette. Your creative possibilities are endless!
