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!

For the bachelorette!

If you are anything like me, wedding seasons seem to go in phases; You either have 4 or 5 engaged girlfriends all planning their weddings at once in the span of 3 months, or there are none--zip, zero zilch! Suddenly I am in the midst of several. One in particular is the September nuptials of my very dear, beloved friend, Tracy Helfrich. I can say that wedding planning is definitely in the air, because there have been several people in the store lately inquiring about bachelorette albums. Christy and I put our heads together and this is what I came up with. It is super cute and more importantly, fun!! A one-of-a-kind gift for that one-of-a-kind girl! Call or come by the store to inquire about a custom made album for your friend!

I can see straight through....

What am I talking about? I am talking about transparencies. When was the last time you used transparencies on your layout? Last month Christy gave me transparencies to use on a layout. I didn't know what to do with it. I could not figure it out. She told me that these particular transparencies are printable, but yet I still had that glazed over look in my eye. Well low and behold a lighting bolt hit me and I actually had an idea. Check it out:Cool huh? I printed words on it that went along with my title and then cut out clouds!
A little mist and a few masks later, and you have a page done! I am using the Early Bird line by Cosmo Cricket, and paint daubers by Tim Holtz.Think of the wonderful things you can do with these. You can make anything! Anything!!!! You have to try these! The ones at Scraphappy have a textured side which was perfect for printing on, and it didn't even smudge as I was pulling it from the printer. I was able to draw on it, too. Not to mention I have an older printer (at least 7 years old) and the transparency was thin enough to go through with no problems!

So if you haven't tried transparencies you need to. You can print on them and punch them out, stamp them, and customize all kinds of embellishments...who knew? Then try layering them on other things like fabric, or patterned paper. Give it a whirl and let us know what you think!

Altered Bra Contest!

Altered Bra Contest
and Silent Auction
Join us and build your bra for the fight against Breast cancer!

The last weekend in September scrapbook stores across the nation will kick off October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month by having their “Scrap Pink” weekend for Breast Cancer. We will be having a 3-day crop with lots of free make-n-takes and activities for all!

Please join our fundraiser by decorating your own bra representing your company or your personality. Drop your completed, decorated bra off at Scraphappy, at the corner of Airport and “W” St. Then call, email, or fax all your friends and family to encourage them to stop in and vote for your bra. All votes cost $1.00, and all proceeds raised will go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Get your bra in as quickly as possible so you will have as much time as possible to get votes. All votes will be counted, and the person or business with the most votes will have a $50 donation made to the fund in their name! We will auction off the bras to raise even more money for the fund! This will be a fun fundraiser that allows you to express your creative side by decorating a bra in your own way. We will tally the votes on a weekly basis to let you know where you are in the standings. If you have any questions, contact Christy at scraphappypensacola@yahoo.com, or visit scrappink.com. Come by and show your support (no pun intended) for all of our Moms, Grandmas, sisters, daughters, aunts, cousins and girlfriends that we would hate to live without.

Final Day for voting and Silent Auction is Sunday, September 27th
