We're not in Kansas anymore...or ARE we?!?

How 'bout them storms last night?!?! CRAZY!

Jody was getting ready to teach her class, and, while some of the students couldn't make it, not even a twister could keep some of our customers away! Jamie snapped this photo on her way in...YIKES!!

Thanks for braving the storm and showing up for a great class! Jody will be having a make-up class for those who couldn't make you're interested in making an adorable card using Copic markers, you can still sign up :) Call the store or come in for more details.

AND...don't forget that August 1st is coupon day. We'll honor any local competitor's coupon for up to 30% off an item.

Have a GREAT day!

I've been meaning to do this for a couple weeks now, but I think I'm still in denial :)

Our very lovely Linda has left us! She's got some nerve, right?!?!

Her husband recently retired, so Linda thought it was time for her to retire as well. They are ready to travel and enjoy the next chapter of their lives.

Linda was a great addition to our staff...always going the extra mile when helping customers and treating the store as if it were her own. She would take home the couch cushions and clean them, bring in her floor steamer for the bathroom and make sure we were fully stocked with sodas for the crop room. Linda always wore a smile on her face and interacted with customers in a way that would make any store owner proud. (The picture above was taken on Black Friday, 2007. After a really CRAZY morning, she's still smiling!)

So...while we're all sad that she's not a part of our team any longer, we're happy that she still loves to scrapbook and will be joining us on most Fridays as a cropper! (If you want to stop by and say hi, that's where she'll be!)

Thank you Linda for being with us from the very beginning...we appreciate YOU and are GRATEFUL for all the good times we've shared.

Thankfully, there's no good-bye...just see ya later!

Announcing our first Consignment Sale!

Are you ready to "upgrade" your scrapbook supplies? Tired of looking at the same old paper and stickers laying around, thinking 'ONE DAY I'll use it', but you never do?!?! And, how many times have you gone through your stash and said, "What was I thinking?!?"

Join us in September for our very first Consignment Sale!

Here's how it's gonna work...

If you want to SELL:

1. If you'd like to sell some of your previously loved items, come on in and register. We've got a registration form that will explain all the details.
2. After you register, we'll assign a code so that you can price your items. The code will allow US to ring them up for YOU...this way, you don't even have to be there!
3. After the sale weekend is over, we'll give you a Beach Scrapbooks gift certificate for the ENTIRE amount of your sales. What a great way for you to trade in the old for NEW!

If you want to VOLUNTEER:

We are in need of volunteers to help throughout the weekend. In exchange for a few hours of your time, all volunteers will get to shop BEFORE the general public. This will give you the opportunity to get the items you want, FIRST!

Volunteers will work in groups of 2 (so if you want to volunteer with a friend, go for it!). Space is very limited and will be assigned on a first come, first served basis.

If you want to SHOP:

The sale will be September 11 - your email and our blog for more information as we get closer.

It's our birthday weekend!!

This weekend, Beach Scrapbooks turns 3!

I was looking through pictures of our store when we very first opened. things have changed!! A few things really stood out. We had FAR less inventory, LOTS of rolled stickers and very few 4x4 QuicKutz dies. But the biggest thing? Our kids. Oh my, how they have GROWN!

For those who frequently visit us, you've probably seen these four little people running around the store. The two blondes are Melissa's kids and the other two are mine. That's Kate with them...she used to work at Beach Scrapbooks but is now living the life working on a cruise ship. Time sure does fly when you're having fun!

I'll post more pictures this week, but for now, I've got to get my things together and head to the store.

I hope to see you at 1 so you can eat some of this gigantic birthday cake with us :)

A little bit of this, a little bit of that and a little Harry Potter

As a person who's approaching one of the big birthday milestones in life, I think I'll be buying some of this birthday paper :)

Perfect for those pool days and fun times at Ocean Breeze!

How many waterguns do your kids have? Mine have quite the little arsenal...

Great paper for Busch Gardens, Kings Dominion or any other theme park...

While the "official" Harry Potter products will debut later this year by Creative Imaginations, here are a few knock-off papers that look like the real deal!
