National Scrapbook Day on Saturday the 2nd

I am writing to let you now about what is going on Saturday. We are having Jeri Grazier coming between 12- 3
Putting on the Ritz, Issaquah WA, Designer: Jeri Grazier

Jeri says "Spend a few minutes with me and explore new ways to put together your cards and scrapbook pages. With a great stamp, terrific paper and a few tools, you can make an original piece of art. We will explore the image, decipher the best way to cut the paper to maximize the story and make something truly original. We will explore the elements of color, line, placement, visual imagery and accents that take a card from a "sound bite" to "the rest of the story". "

Along with Jeri coming we will be having another stash bash and from what i see there will be lots of great bargains that customers are unloading at great prices. This will be all day.

In addition we will be having a couple of make -n takes, one in the morning and one in the afternoon also plenty of door prizes and some neat bags from Karen Foster with goodies from other companies in them.

From 11-3 my husband will be there cooking hotdogs, so join us for lunch and a good time.
Please remember we do Open at 10am and close at 4pm on Saturday. See you there.

Happy Saturday

Today is going to be a sunny day and we all know we needed that. So what are you doing today? Tomorrow is also going to be nice and my husband and I are going to the tulip fields. If you are planning on going then save those photo's as Melanie is planning a new sketch layout for you using photo's from the tulip fields. Check the blog and store in a couple of weeks to see it. Right now her latest sketch and layout are at the store and below, check it out, it is really cute for Easter photo's. She also made cards with the left over papers.

After you spend the day out doors, we are having a crop and we still have room. It starts at 4 pm. If you are enjoying the weather come a little late, but please call to let me know you want to join in the fun so we can save you a spot.

Have you ever used a sketch?

A sketch is a simple drawing of a scrapbook layout that outlines an idea of where to place photos, papers and embellishments.

Lila's always has a sketch and sketch based layout featured in her store (usually on the front table) and a number of examples from the past (on the back bulletin board and in an album you can ask to see).

This Easter page is her current sketch layout. If you purchase paper to make this layout (2 background cardstock, one other cardstock, optional photo mat cardstock, and 2 different patterned papers) you may ask for a copy of this sketch for free. She can also build you a kit that includes all the embellishments, ribbons and these papers if you ask.

But a sketch is just a starting point. Change your layout to meet your needs! Here I switched the pages around, added another picture and some journaling, and turned one photo.

Or, a one page layout may be enough for you:

And then, with all your paper, ribbon and sticker scraps? Make some cards!

This is the fun rub-on "Glitter Foil Flock" that is featured just inside the door. It's easy to use, there are lots of designs and colors to choose from, and it adds a nice touch to your project.
