Weekend in Review

Our weekend of fun has concluded at the Shoppe, but just want to report little snipits of what went on (in case you missed it!). At Sherry's 2nd Copic Club of the year in the technique class they learned how to color with interest. As Sherry reported, while you can plain 'ole color with Copics, the part that makes it interesting is when you combine blending, color layering and lighting. The focus was on lighting from the front, side, top and bottom. All the class participants were "totally" getting it by the time the hour had passed!

Next, Sherry's Colorbox technique class was to learn about Koh I Noor pencils and how they react with Colorbox ink. Coloring techniques with Prismacolor and Gamsol, as well as three special card folds were taught. Everyone's favorite was the Sympathy card.

Onto Sunday with Lyn's newly revised "Tin" Luggage Ensemble and mini Bind-It-All book class. We covered a lot in 2-1/2 hours! Literally, we covered the hinged tin inside and out, we covered our mini book pages and then decorated the pages once they were bound with the O-wires. Everyone had good laughs over me struggling to remember how to operate my Bind-It-All. Thankfully, I practiced on scrap papers before I ruined anyone's book...well, there was that one page of Barb's I wrecked, but that was quickly fixed with new.

Yay! The weekend is here and there’s lots happening at the Shoppe starting today with Kathy & Friends morning Crop at 9:30 am. She’s created a LO with Jenni Bowlin papers (my personal fav!). Wonder what goody Judy baked? It's a Never Ending Chocolate Cake!

Saturday is a-buzzin’ with Sherry’s Copic Club (remember, anyone can jump into this quarterly technique session) at 11:00 a.m. and then another technique class Colorbox and Beyond at 12:30 p.m. If you love Colorbox Chalk Inks and regular Colorbox inks, find out how to mix them with Prisma Color Pencils to make really poppin’ images!

Sunday is Webster’s Pages Lullabye Lane Luggage Ensemble with Lyn at 1:00 p.m. Another Lynnie’s Mini class where you’ll learn all sorts of sweet assemblage techniques. If you haven’t used your Bind-It-All in awhile, this is a great refresher class.

Even if you’re not signed up for a class, stop in and let us help you in your creative quest this weekend! Check out Thrifty Time with new consignment items (stamps!). If you love glitter (who doesn’t), we have new 2-1/2” glitter letters in silver, acqua, pink, red and gold at 25 cents each that are going fast!

Saturday Snips

When I was a little girl, I used to love cutting paper of any kind and could spend hours in my little world of paper and paper dolls. I had a small table set up in the dining room at my grandma’s house and I remember she always said to me, “Pick up your snips!” Hence, snips are quickie posts about our paper art world called Stampin’ & Scrappin’ Time.

Yesterday, I stopped by to say hi to Kathy and Friends at her Friday morning crop. If you are a scrapbooker and haven’t attended her crop, you need to check it out in person! The group size ranges from 12 people on up and everyone just loves being there to see what layout Kathy has designed for them to replicate. Her layout yesterday was a lovely vintage cottage chic design with many sweet elements. Everyone was gaga over her page and I could hear their comments about how lovely it was and how they couldn’t wait to get started on it. Almost made me want to sit down and scrapbook (but as many of you know, 12x12 scares me!) So, what are you doing every Friday morning? I think you need to find out what you’re missing! Oh, and did I tell you there’s always a yummy baked goody from our wonderful Judy B?

Need a quick Mother’s Day idea? It can’t get any easier than a gift certificate from the Shoppe! Just call up and tell them the denomination you want, they’ll put it on your charge and all that’s left is to pick it up or we’ll mail it. If you’re out of town and can’t get to the Shoppe in time, we can easily email the gift certificate to you (or your recipient)! WOW! How easy is that?

Hugs, Lyn

CAS Group, AccuCut Room & New Samples!

Just wanted to post about a few things beginning with Sherry’s CAS Group on Wednesday. What a terrific trio of cards were created! They all had a similar fold but each one was totally different! Lots of fun design elements on each card and the take away was some great card making ideas. I invite you all to stop by at 1 pm on Wednesdays for Clean and Simple card making fun, Sherry style!

While you’re at the Shoppe, go see what Cathy Welch did to the AccuCut room! It is totally transformed into a diecut dream area! All the dies are displayed and/or stacked to easily locate what you need, the sample binders are within an easy reach, and it’s nice and roomy in there too! Thanks Cathy for your ability to make order out of chaos!

New samples are on display from cards, to a quick Mother’s Day gifty idea for mailing those bulky 3d cards, to a sweet hanging mobile of diecut butterflies as seen in Paper Crafts Magazine, May/June issue. It’s going to be cold this weekend, which is a great reason to stop by the Shoppe and check out our artsy little store! Hugs, Lyn

How we celebrated National Scrapbook Day

What a terrific time we had at the Shoppe in celebration of National Scrapbook Day!
Events began with Lyn over at Paper Arts Club on Wednesday night. Four fabulous cards were created using fresh and new papers. Six door prizes were a special highlight just for this event.

Next, Kathy’s Friday morning crop kicked off the Shoppe’s new monthly paper line, 72 & Sunny from We R Memory Keepers. 12 people made a summer page as well as an additional card from the scraps! Robert Redford was there in the form of a cake made by Judy B!

A special Friday night crop was celebrated from 5:00 pm until 12:30 a.m.! It was a fun evening where people dropped in and out during that time to work on their own projects.

Saturday was a huge turnout of people for the Wine & Cheese event hosted by our Shoppe owner, Annabelle Wratten. Customers made five Hero cards for $5 designed by Annabelle. It was a fun time for our customers to meet our owner!

On Sunday Sherry hosted an A muse Ami event, pampered stamper style with fresh strawberries the size of apples, fruit tarts and cute little cupcakes. Fabulous projects were made to give or they were great to keep! Sherry is doing another A muse Ami event this July during A muse A Palooza! Kathy was also teaching high tech Hero cards on the other side of the classroom – always a customer favorite!

Whew! We gave our absolute best to National Scrapbook Day! Thank you all for joining us this past week. There’s a lot more excitement coming around to Stampin’ & Scrappin’ Time and we can’t wait to tell you about it in next quarter’s newsletter! Meanwhile, visit our blog, sign up for this month’s fun lineup of classes, or just stop to shop and see what’s new. It’s always Stampin’ & Scrappin’ Time!
