Message Board idea...

HI guys,
Just wanted to show you a simple project we did here at Scraphappy. We used a feather boa to make a frame around one of the 11x14 magnetic metal panels. It made a really cute "frame." I'm thinking this would be cute to do again for Valentine's Day!
See you later!

So much to blog about!

Sorry it's been so long!! We have 2 new design team members, so we should start having posts every couple of days. Here at Scraphappy we have been doing class kits, making gifts, making gift bags, cards, ornaments, and tons of other Christmas stuff...
If you're like us, you are looking for some inexpensive gift ideas this year. We have a few ideas to show you, and will post others as we get them done!
Here are handmade ornamentswe did, that we grouped in a set of 4.

All we did was use some winter rub-ons, centered them and rubbed them on, then tied coordinating ribbon in a big bow. You could use letter rub-ons to do names or messages.
We also did some gift bags with cute little tags:

We have some card kits ready for those of you who havent finished your holiday cards yet! The kits have enough supplies to complete 10 cards with envelopes, everything is pre-cut, all you have to do is assemble! The kits come with 10 Bazzill cards, 10 envelopes, 10 embellishments, 10 brads, 5 yds of ribbon, and 10 card fronts.

We have 2 classes coming up soon, as well as some crops!

We are cropping Friday the 11th and Saturday the 19th.

Latest Newsletter....

Our email is not working properly, and it wouldnt send the newsletter out to about half of you guys, so I will post it here for now until the problem gets fixed!!

October News and Dates
Hi everyone!

Thanks for coming out for Scrap Pink last weekend, we raised a little over $700 to send to the Susan G Komen for a Cure foundation. I had a really good time, hope everyone else did too! Thank you so much to everyone who helped out in one way or another all weekend or beforehand. Check out the blog and website for pics!

Those who came by to crop or shop over the weekend already know this, but for those who didn't get to come by, we are EXPANDING! As of November 1st, we will be in the empty suite beside Wallpaper Gallery. It is more than 3x the size of this store, has its own parking, and many other features that you will have to come by and see once we are in there! There will be a HUGE crop area that will remain in place at all times, and two other private rooms that can be rented out at any time for cropping, parties, meetings, or whatever you’d like! I am very excited, and want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has been supporting the store already! Not to sound cliché, but without you guys, we literally would not be able to grow so quickly. We will be adding a good bit to the inventory all at once, so if there are any special requests, get them in ASAP!

~Moving Sale!! Unfortunately, the entire store won’t fit on the hot pink golf cart we used during ScrapPink weekend, so, we are having a moving sale! From now until Oct 31st, there will be Buy 1, Get 1 Free items throughout the store! Stop by to check it out, different items will be added to the sale throughout the month.

~World Card-Making Day Sale!! Come in on Saturday the 3rd and order a Scor-Pal for only $30!!! That’s $10 off regular price! Offer good Saturday only!

Scrap Pink 2009 is Almost Here!!

Yay!! Can I get a WOO-HOOO!!! This will be my first Scrap Pink event and I can't wait. I look forward to seeing all of you and seeing you do the "art of scrapbooking".

Scrap Pink is such a wonderful way to connect with others touched by breast cancer. In honor of my sister-in-law and a good friend of mine who have both battled breast cancer, I did a few layouts to go on the Scrap Pink Wall. Here are the LOs:
In order to be prepared to scrap by the weekend I am going to have to get an early start deciding what I am going to bring. Isn't that the hardest thing? Trying to narrow down all your stuff so you don't need a truck to haul it all in? I am going to sort photos and papers to try to get focused and actually get some layouts done (at least that is my plan). My husband is already hip to my game. He says, "Do you really need all that time to scrapbook? You are gone all that time and you only have 6 pages?" I say, "Honey, you just don't get it." But I am thinking, "A crop is a ton of work, let's see: I scrap...talk...eat...talk some more...fawn over everybody's stuff...look at everyone's gadgets that I don't have ...make a list of all the stuff I now "need"... scrap... talk... eat... complete 2 layouts in 6 hours...(sigh) isn't that just the best." Scrapbookers have the most fun!

Anyway, I am sure we are going to have a great time this weekend! Get ready!

Scrappers by Day, Tattoo Artists by Night!!!

Last week here at Scraphappy, we helped a girl design her very first tattoo using some of our stamps! Here is a picture of what she decided on:

Cute shoes, huh?! Can anyone guess what stamp that is that she chose? *The fleur-de-lis is not part of the stamp.*

I thought she was pretty brave for going that big on the first one!

~The first person to guess the stamp and brand that this design is from will win the stamp set!~

Good luck!

getting in THE PINK!!

**edited to add a card & layout**
Are you getting ready for Scrap Pink 2009?
I sure hope so.
Christy has some fabulous things planned
& so many things to benefit such a worthy cause.

Here's a preview of a few make-n-takes.
Using some of the fabulous Pink Paislee
& some very appropriate stamps:)
A card, 2 bookmarks & a magnet.

This layout is of a scrapbooking friend I met on-line.
We met sometime during 2006, maybe even late 2005
& found out we lived 5-hours apart.
So, while her family vacationed in Gulf Shores, AL,
her & I got together for lunch!!
In 2008 she was diagnosed with breast cancer
& is currently in remission.
Sorry for the bad photo, but it's been raining!!

I've got some cards & a layout in the works.
So mark your calendars
& I'll see you September 25th - 27th!!

Friday, September 11, 2009

Hey gals! Have you guys seen the absolutely PRECIOUS Pink Paislee papers that Christy just got in the store? I absolutely love them! Anything with hot pink is right up my alley! The first layout, "Light Up a Room" features the Office Lingo line from Pink Paislee. The second layout is actually a transparency from the line. Too cute! Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy!

September Classes Added...

Three new classes have been added to the calendar for next month! We are having a Photography tips class with the owner of Rob's Camera, and 2 photoshop classes with Rusti Hobart. The Photography class is designed to help you take better pictures for your scrapbook pages, and learn some basic camera equipment info that will help you choose the right camera for your needs. The Photoshop classes are going to teach us basic skills in photo editing, some photography terminology, and how to make pictures look better when they arent taken in the best lighting, etc. After these 2 Photoshop classes we will start a series on Photoshop Elements if you are interested in learning more. You do not need to own a computer program for the photoshop classes. Check the calendar here for more info!

First Bra In, New Stuff in, Photo class added...

Hello! So the first bra has been turned in for the bra contest!

Stop by to vote or to turn yours in! Many local businesses are creating a bra to represent their company, so if you have a business, get some free advertising and make us a bra! We even have a bra coming all the way from Jamaica! There are some cheerleaders from local high schools decorating bras in their school colors, so if you have school spirit, you'd better get your friends together and make a bra to help your school win the most votes! Also, if there are any college football fans out there, you'd better get working on your bra, because we have several in the works!

Today we got a visit from Justin, AND our Fed Ex delivery guy! I mean, 2 boxes of new stuff in one day?? It was seriously a great day! :) Come by and check out the new stuff, which will continue coming in regularly! A few things that came were some of the new Tim Holtz Stickles, and tons of requests, like dirt bike stuff, 50th anniversary, softball, racing, Air Force, Fancy Pants, transparencies, Pink Paislee and more!

Also coming up is a photography class here at Scraphappy on September 8th from 6pm-8pm. The class is being taught by the owner of Rob's Camera, formerly Ritz Camera. Having great pictures for our layouts is just as important as all of the pretty paper and embellishments we use, so come learn some tips from a pro! The class is only $30, and Rob will be giving you guys $20 in coupons to his camera/print shop. Check the website for a detailed class description. Call or come by to sign up!

Don't forget, we are cropping this weekend from Friday 6-midnight and Saturday 9am-midnight. There are still spaces available, call to reserve yours!

Thanks guys, and have a great weekend!
