Did you survive the heatwave?

Boy was it hot last week! Blazing was the word we kept hearing, and they were right! Good thing we have an air conditioner. Don't forget that you can come to the store and work on your projects here. Come take advantage of the fact that we have the air on. No charge to come and play from 10am to 6pm during the week. Give us a call if you are coming with friends, so we can hold spots for you.

With new product coming in weekly, it's hard to believe that we are going to start ordering for the rest of the year. New releases are being announced daily. Did you see the 12 new Oxide colors from Tim Holtz?  Yum. They are set to be shipped June 30th. And of course the Tim Holtz platforms will be delivered next month. We have started to see Halloween and Christmas lines. Crazy to think about Halloween and Christmas in this heat. Check out our facebook page for pictures of the new products as it arrives.

As always we are working on keeping you inspired. Tell us what you would like to see more of, what classes we should have. Send us an email.

Enjoy summer!
Be inspired and create.

Great things happening at It's All About the Scrapbook

We are so excited!  We have expanded our MakerSpace into the suite nextdoor. We moved the tables and set up a cropping area and additional classroom area. Now we can add more classes to the calendar and you can come crop on Saturdays when we have classes. The MakerSpace is also available for you to hold your own crops, retreats, parties, meet-ups, classes of any kind, etc.  The more the merrier! Come check it out!

The store has a new look now.  We have added more fixtures, brought in more product and of course rearranged everything.  Someone actually said that it looks like we have a grown-up store now.  Tim Holtz, Aisle 6.  And thank goodness for the additional fixtures.  Product has been coming in by the truckloads.  Did we really order all these goodies at Creativation? 

Great classes and events coming up.  Mark Gould from London,  Julie Haymaker from Phoenix, Tonic Trunk Show and Echo Park Day are the big ones.  I posted more great classes from Daniela Costa, Nikki Sher, Jodi Beck, Georgia Sommers, Janice Rosenthal Rock too.  Check out the classes tab. Albums, cards, banners, mixed media - something for everyone.  Pick a day or two or three and come create with us. They won't disappoint. Call to reserve your spot.

As always, we thank you for your support.  We couldn't do it without you.
Be inspired and create.

And so it begins

Yvonne and I had a wonderful time shopping and learning at Creativation in Phoenix.  So many great new paper lines and products to match.  Most of you have seen the pictures and videos online, but in person they were so much better.  The first of many shipments have been delivered.  We have the two new baby lines, Rock a Bye Boy and Girl, from Carta Bella. Three lines: Rugged, Dapper and Emerald from Authentique arrived yesterday.  We even received the coordinating dotted and striped card stock to match.  Great, rich colors in their cardstock. Four lines from Moxxie: Baseball, Softball, Hoppy Easter and Craft Brew! Yes! a paper line for beer. 

We have expanded our inventory to include Eclectic Elements. Yes, we did it. We brought in Tim Holtz' fabric and notion line for crafting, mix media, quilting and sewing projects.  We have a wonderful assortment of fat quarters, fat eighths, charms packs, design rolls, 20 different bolts of fabric so you can buy by the yard and two bolts of 108" backing. The texture of the 100% cotton fabric is amazing! Possibilities are endless.  The notion rack should be here by the end of the month, with zippers, thread and fasteners.  We also have more of the travel tote bag kits.

More boxes to come in the next couple of weeks and months: Of course all the new Ranger, Sizzix, Idea-ology, Bo-Bunny, Carpe Diem, Simple Stories. And Oh! the new lines from Echo Park and Carta Bella are amazing! Wait til you see the Toy Box line! New Lawn Fawn, Stampendous, Graphic45, Photoplay, Prima.  Oh my goodness.  And Tonic, Dylusions.  There are probably some more, just can't remember.  Stay tuned. 

And we have one more big surprise, but you'll have to wait for that one in the spring. 

So much stuff! Where are we going to put it all?

Be inspired and Create!
See you soon.

Happy Holidays!

Hard to believe, but here we are again. Christmas and New Years! We drive ourselves crazy to get the decorations up, maybe bake some goodies, oh and the Christmas cards. Sit back a moment and enjoy the decorations, nibble on that broken cookie, and look through the cards you have received one more time.  Isn't it wonderful? Enjoy the time with family and friends, and even the quiet time. It really is magical.

We wish you a wonderful Holiday, and we hope that 2017 will be a year of happiness, health and lots of creative time. 

Thank you for your support and friendship

We are very thankful for all the people who have entered our lives over the last three years; customers, designers, reps, instructors, everyone!
We can't wait to see what's next.  We are truly blessed.

Enjoy the time with friends and family.  We will be closed Thursday, Friday and Saturday of Thanksgiving Weekend.  Back to our normal schedule on Tuesday, November 29th.

Nature has its way of letting us know that Christmas is 80 days away.

Well, the temperature has dropped 20 degrees in just the last 3 days. What a great reminder that the holidays are coming soon.  My favorites, actually.  (Even though I love a chocolate Easter bunny.) But the fall colors and all the decorations for Halloween and Christmas are so much fun.  When do you start putting up your Halloween decorations?  Or do you jump right into Christmas?

We had a wonderful 3 day crop this last weekend, and several of the crafters started on their Christmas cards. Some very creative cards using the newest Christmas lines and embellishments we have in stock now. The room got a good dose of glitter. The wool sweater using the Elizabeth Craft die turned out adorable. I was so excited. Those thinlit dies really do cut through wool and felt.  Oh the possibilities! 

We have a great selection of Halloween, Fall and Christmas paper and embellishments in stock. Not to mention all the items for your mixed media, coloring and painting needs. Check out the other tabs on the blog for the latest updates of what is in stock and the classes coming up. So much to see and do. The make-n-take table is full for you to be inspired.

Grab that cup of coffee or tea, check out ideas online and then come visit us.
Be inspired and create!
