        2011 Basic Grey Page of the Month REGISTRATION NOW OPEN!!!

        Registration for the Basic Grey Page of the Month 2011 Program is NOW OPEN!!

        • Registration is on a first-come/first-serve basis.
        • All details are available at the store. You don't want to miss out on our special offers!!! Call us soon! 250-590-1266

        Wednesday, January 19, 2011


        This month's upcoming Stamp-A-Stack is on Sunday Jan 30th from 12:30-3:30pm.
        Pictured are 3 of the 8 cards that will be available for you to make. I have included a few of the new stamp sets from There She Goes clear stamps as well as stamps from Pink Cat Studio, a chipboard dragonfly card and others!
        A Stamp-A-Stack class is a relaxed class where you pace yourself. Each card and all of the supplies to create it are contained within a bin.
        The fees for this class are: Members: $18.00, Non-Members: $20.00. These fees will cover 6 cards. You may choose to create additional cards for $2 each. There will be at least 8 different cards for you to choose from.

        As this class is self-paced you only need basic card-making experience. I will be there to guide you along, but minimal instruction is needed. This makes this a great class for beginners but also a nice class for those with experience making cards, as everything is prepped and you just get to sit and enjoy creating!

        You can work on your cards on your own but sometimes a group or a few people like to work together. You choose what works best for you. As everything is contained in a bin for a specific card, when you are done making a card, just return the bin with all of the supplies to the main table and pick up another bin, and so on. You can make as few as 6 cards or choose to make extras during the 3 hour period.

        Registration is on a first-come first-serve basis. So please register as early as possible. Registration cut off will be Thursday January 27th (or when class is full-10 SPACES Available) in order to allow for preparation. A lot of time is needed for staff to prepare the materials for this class. So registering ASAP is preferable. Many thanks!

        Note: Cards may be designed using a variety of mediums: stamps, die cuts, paints, etc. They are not necessarily all "stamped" cards. Variety is the spice of life!
        I hope that you will join me for a relaxed afternoon of cardmaking!

        Sunday, January 16, 2011

        Scrappers', are you ready for a CHALLENGE!?

        We are introducing a NEW Scrappers' Challenge!

        This challenge will run from now until June 30th, 2011. You can join in anytime, but the sooner the better! Each time you create or complete a scrapbook page at our store, we will be keeping a record of the number of scrapbook pages that you get completed. Please note that your pages must be completed/finished while at our store.

        Here are some of the details:

        • If you attend a midnight crop and complete 4 pages, you get 4 pages noted by your name(or any amount that you complete).

        • If you just come on in to use our workshop area and complete 2 pages, another 2 pages get noted by your name(or any amount that you complete).

        • Another way that you can get more scrapbook pages noted as completed at our store is by taking scrapbook classes.

        • If you are in the BG POTM and you attend a complimentary class, get 2 pages noted.

        • If you take a Monthly Memories class, get 2 pages noted,

        • even better....if you take a Fun, Fast and Fabulous class, you will get 8 pages noted.

        • BUT....we will also be announcing challenges during this challenge! We might announce a theme, maybe a specific product, maybe a layout, you just won't know until we announce it. When we do, there will be a time frame to complete layouts using the challenge that we announce. For every layout that you complete using the challenges that we set, you will earn DOUBLE layout points. (ie: if you complete 1 layout using the challenge you will get 2 layouts marked off)

        You can see that it will not take any time at all before your scrapbook page numbers start to climb. So, what is in it for you? Of course we are going to reward the person with the highest number of pages completed! Well, we will also have a 2nd place and 3rd place winner as well! Hey, you will even have the satisfaction of completing layouts for you and your loved ones to cherish your memories forever!

        1st place (highest number of pages completed): pick any class valued at $30 or less for FREE + a basket of products FREE (basket will be revealed soon)!

        2nd place:
        pick any class valued at $25.00 or less FREE

        3rd place: pick any class valued at $20 of less FREE

        We do hope that you will join in on this challenge. There is no charge to take part in this challenge. All that you have to do is SCRAP!

        As soon as you complete a layout at our store, let one of the staff know and you will have started the challenge! How many layouts do you think that you will complete? I can't wait to tally the numbers in June.

        Any questions, you can direct them to me and I will get the staff all updated by tomorrow (Jan 14th!).
