Unique product available in the store

Susan is stocking a product from "kanban" that features foil and thermographic imaging. There are lots of colors to pick from. Some of the kits allow you to design several cards from one kit. I included a photo of two of these. There are also scrapbook kits that allow you more room on your layout because the page includes a folded flap. Very cool! One of the upcoming card swaps will utilize this product.

Great two-page layout paper

Little Yellow Bicycle has a great paper that creates a two-page layout regardless of whether you place the paper on the right or left side. The artwork is a perfect match. Isn't that cool?

Looking for spring paper?

"In Bloom" by Reminisce is the newest arrival at the store. As you can see in the photo, you have several choices of base colors. I really like how the colors or the patterns match each other. Tulips always say "spring" to me.

Another great collection

Little Yellow Bicycle has a great springtime collection at the store called "Elizabeth Park." The papers are double-sided and are very bright. The coolest thing is that one of the pages can create a double layout regardless of whether you match the left or right sides. How clever! Unfortunately, I can't get the photo to publish. The label design above is also unique. It is positioned on a sheet of "chalkboard" paper. (You know, the big craze is the chalkboard look.)

Great new collection

The store just received a paper collection called "Tea Party" from Creative Imaginations. It really looks like Mary Englebreit artwork. I love it!!! It is double-sided cardstock weight paper. So this is really only 2 sheets of paper in the photo.

Custom school paper available

The store has custom school paper for NBHS, CHS, NHS, SVHS, and CLHS on the shelf. As we are busy finishing school-related scrapbooks, this is the best time to come in and pick up your school's logo.

Another really cool product is also availble. You can order customized paper through one of the store's vendors. There are many different designs available. You can choose a specific sport or choose your school colors. A specific name and/or jersey number can also be printed on the paper. You can also choose to upload graphics or photos onto the background. All of this is available for under $20 for a 12 sheet minimum order. The special order takes 2-3 weeks to produce. This would work for other special events too such as family reunions, weddings, graduations. I can't wait to create a custom design myself.

National Scrapbook Day is approaching

Saturday, May 7 is National Scrapbook Day. The store is hosting a twelve hour crop that day to celebrate. Seats are going fast so contact the store soon if you are interested in joining the fun. There will be food, prizes, and contests. Rumor is circulating that another mystery layout challenge will be held. (This is also the date for the next prize drawing to win the rolley tote. Customers earn a chance in the drawing for every $15 spent.)
