New 2 Page Spreads

There are many new 2 page spreads for sale. This is one. Many people like the 2 page spreads for many reasons, maybe you are behind and need fillers or you don't scrapbook and you would like the look of a handmade layout book, some just like they way they look and think it would be a great addition to their album. Whatever the reason, remember that I will also add a name, date, place or special words to your purchase. Don't see one done that you would like for a certain occasion, I will do special orders with colors or picture sizes to your needs. The page spreads are $6.95 ea. Additional items can be added, I try to leave room for journaling or other items you wish to add to make it your own.

I hope everyone had an enjoyable and safe weekend. The sun was very nice to see, I even was able to get some gardening done on Sunday(I am so far behind this year). Most of our yard is garden with a few grassy spots and patio's. We love to sit in the evenings with a fire in the outdoor fireplace and watch the sun go down behind the trees and see what new flowers are blooming. Many of the photo's I take of flowers are in our yard. We are hoping to put in a water feature this summer, no ponds as we have many small children in the neighborhood and we have living fences and open arbors for people to come visit. Have a great week!

Hello everyone,
I hope you are all enjoying the blog. I will try to keep you updated on as much as possible. This weekend I am getting away to Winthrop with my husband and some good friends. We planned this trip before we opened the store. Bonnie will be there on Friday and Katri on Saturday. They will do thier best to help you. On the right side of the blog at the bottom is a slideshow of some personal pics if you are interested, I will change them periodically with new ones, they are of family, friends, places I visit and things I love to take pics of that go into my scrapbooks. I love to take pics of flowers, waterfalls, sunsets and lighthouses. Some of my travels I seek out these items. A couple of weekends ago I went to California for some training classes. Took 2 classes with Tim Holtz and a class with Jenny Bowlin, and many others, it was a great learning experience for me. Some pics later when I get back. I have ordered Crackle Paints, they were so much fun and some grungeboard. The crackle paints are great on chipboard and really make nice additions to your cards and layouts. You can try them out at the store as soon as they come in. Everyone have a great weekend and talk to you soon.

Happy Mother's Day

The Mother's Day mini-book has been a tremendous success with 38 books sold and made.

a photo of the inside...... scrappers were able to place their own pictures inside once they got it home.

Thank-you to everyone who made one. Look for a new mini-book each monthand also check out our class schedule for other projects. Can't make it for that particular day or time, talk to me about an alternate time that is good for both of us.

NEW Daisy Bucket Papers

The new Daisy Bucket papers are in the store. They look and feel almost like they are cloth, the new ribbons are paper and they tear and curl. Come on in and see a sample. This is just one of several collections.

This picture just doesn't do this paper justice.

National Scrapbook Day

Hello Everyone,

Just a quick note to let you know that Saturday May 3 is National Scrapbook Day and in observance of this day I will be running specials throughout the store up to 40% off. Many door prizes will be given throughout the day as well. Come join us for the savings refreshments and prizes.

Our first mini book has been a great hit. If haven't seen it, you still have time to get in one of the classes for it. I will be doing a different mini book every month. Check out our many other classes like our two page layout class and take home a page with the layout to keep in a folder to add to others for ideas always ready. For those who have not been in the last month we have added an extra room. The store is growing! We get new items in weekly. Check us out!!!

Looking forward to seeing you soon. Thank-you because without you our store will not grow and give Everett a place to gather and meet new people thru the love of scrapbooking and card making.
