Halloween + Silhouette = CUTE!!!

Check out this CUTE shirt that Cindy, one of our customers, made using her Silhouette! She used the iron-on transfer paper for the "Ghouls just wanna have fun!" and the rhinestones for the spider.

Well done, Cindy!

Don't forget we're open today from 12 to 5...and...we've got CANDY :)

Happy Halloween!!!

Open on Halloween!

On Sunday, bring your little ghosts and goblins in for a special treat!

We'll be open from 12 to 5 and would love to see your little ones in costume. Bring them by so they can practice saying TRICK OR TREAT!

Michelle and Fernanda will be passing out candy, but, just for the record, they will not be performing any tricks :)

New Sizzix dies

Some new arrivals :)

If you know Stephanie Ackerman, you'll know that she's one of the sweetest people around! She is one of the most creative people I know, has amazing doodling skills, and makes a mean chocolate chip cookie. Sizzix has captured her amazing handwriting in a new font called Butterfly Kisses. You won't find it online or in another die's unique and one of a kind! For more on Stephanie, check out her blog.

And...for those Basic Grey lovers out there...Sizzix has also teamed up with Basic Grey. You'll note the Basic Grey logo in the upper left corner. A couple of their dies are shown below...

Have a great day!

Christmas Dessert Recipe Page Swap

Does the thought of a double fudge brownie and a big glass of cold milk makes you squeal with delight? Does your will power go out the window when you see a pumpkin caramel cheesecake? If so, it’s time to preheat the oven and break out the mixing bowls!

Now is the chance to show us your best and share your recipes with scrapbooking flair. Our first recipe page swap was a big success, so we’re doing it again. This time around, we’ve got a theme with a twist!

Beach Scrapbooks is having a Christmas Dessert Recipe Page Swap, and here’s the twist. Instead of just dropping off your pages at the store, we’re planning a taste testing of all the sweets featured on those pages.

At our taste testing party, we will all bring samples of our recipes to share. At the end of the night we’ll leave with 20 pages of recipes...enough to fill an entire scrapbook!

Sound like fun? Here are the details:

1. The taste testing party will be December 4th at 4:30 p.m. Feel free to bring your camera so you can take pictures of the delicious desserts.

2. It’s FREE, but you must sign up. There are only 20 spots available!

3. Please make 20 identical recipe pages (one for your own book and 19 other pages to share). All pages need to be 8x8. Please have your recipe clearly typed on the page along with any embellishments that you would normally add to a scrapbook page.

4. Make sure your name is on each page…front or back is fine.

5. Please have your completed pages to the store no later than Tuesday, November 30th.

Bon app├ętit!

Anna here...

A message from Anna...

It’s Hump Day!!!

I am so excited to be doing my first hump day layout for Beach Scrapbooks. I am in love with the Silhouette! I plan on running off and eloping with it! It was so fun to scour the library to find die cuts for this super-cute birthday layout and, with the new Silhouette software searching in the library, it is so much quicker.

I do have to say that Nicole helped me when I hit a creative wall last night after working for twelve hours. Thanks Nicole, for helping me with the finishing touches. So, stop by the store today to pick up a hump day kit for $5. Otherwise my self esteem might suffer. Just sayin’… Anna

Editor's note: Just to clarify...Anna was NOT working at our store for 12 hours! That's crazy talk! (She has another know, one of those grown up jobs...) Anna and Nicole are two of our newest staff, and I love how they worked together on this. You guys rock :)

happy HUMP day!

Happy Wednesday, bloggers!

Today's Hump Day kit is brought to you today by the lovely Anna :)

Kits are only $5 while supplies last.

Enjoy your day!

We've just grown by two (tiny) feet...

What a beautiful day! We are so OVER THE TOP EXCITED to tell you that Amy had her baby yesterday!

Here's the info from her husband Greg:

Renee Amelie Norman was born 10/15/2010 at 7:35pm, via c-section. She weighed 4 lbs and 15.8 ounces, and was 18.2" long. She's nice and healthy and already curious. Mama Amy is doing fine, though exhausted from the 24-hour effort (we checked in at 7:30 Thursday night). We're just incredibly happy.

Amy and Greg...we are all SO VERY HAPPY for you! Enjoy your little bundle of joy and know that we can't wait to meet little Miss Renee :)

Meet Jacque!

Happy Friday!

We'd like to introduce Jacque...our newest instructor. Her work is simply beautiful, and you are going to LOVE the classes that she has planned :)

The first class on the calendar for Jacque is her COPIC PETALS. All her samples are on display at the store, so come in and take a look!

A great class for Copic beginners and beyond!
November 14th
Sunday 1:00 - 4:00 p.m.

Learn how to create these pretty cards using a Copic 1-step technique and some very simple blending. You will also learn a few more special effects “tricks” to give your card a crisp, dimensional look. We will finish a total of 5 cards (envelopes included!) Each student will receive a 6th card full of “Petals” as a thank you gift from Jacque for signing up!

Class kits come fully cut n' ready and include all embellishments you see on the class display. Please come visit the store to see the samples up-close!

Silhouette Studio

Have you downloaded the new Silhouette Studio software?!? Hopefully you HAVE and you're already enjoying all the new features :)

For those that would like some guidance with the new software, Jen will be holding a SILHOUETTE STUDIO OVERVIEW on October 25th. Both sessions will last approximately one hour and cover the same materials (so you only need to register for one). Bring your fully charged (if possible) laptop and pen/paper (for note taking)...NO Silhouette is needed. SILHOUETTE STUDIO SOFTWARE MUST BE DOWNLOADED PRIOR TO CLASS.

If you have any specific questions/problems that you would like addressed, please email Jen BEFORE the start of class.

Silhouette Studio Overview
October 25th
10:30 a.m.
5:30 p.m.
Cost: $5

And, speaking of the new Silhouette Studio software, check out this super groovy decor on an otherwise boring white laptop cover! Vinyl cuts like butta on the Silhouette and is really easy to apply. It also works with the Cricut (and is less expensive than their brand).

Happy cutting!
