Summer Hours

Summer Hours begin today.  Over the years I have noticed that our scrappers, stampers and card makers like to enjoy our warm weather and take vacation out of the area. 

Therefore, this year I have changed my summer hours:
Thursday & Friday 11:30 am - 6:30 pm

Even though the days are limited, if you need to shop at a different time, I am happy to set an appointment time with you and open up.  Please email or call me to set up an appointment. 

Also,   I have scheduled several crops during the summer, which the store will be open during crops.  The next crop is Friday, July 1 from 11am-11pm. 

Stop by to see us.

Birthday and Graduation Cards

Here are a few cards I made this week - don't want to get caught without - haha

Friday, June 24, 2011

I can't believe I did this!!!!

Me - of all the people did this! 
What is this grievous act you ask? 


Alicia had a graduation party to attend and she didn't make one nor did she let me know that I needed to make one for her.  Do you know how hard it was to hand over $5 for one store bought card???

Do you know how many cards I can make for $5?????  That got me really wondering.  So I thought - let's make this fun and have a challenge -

Here it is...  Make as many cards as you can with $5 in supplies! 

Challenge rules:
-use $5 (or less) in supplies (keep in mind that a package of brads/stickers/yard of ribbon, etc. goes a long way)
-use as many tools as you want (embossing folders, die cut/die cut machines, etc)
-supplies must be purchased/have been purchased from Scrapbook Connection
-must send photos of cards via email, post pictures to blog or Scrapbook Connection facebook page, or bring cards to the store.
-Challenge ends July 31

-winner will receive $5 Scrapbook Connection gift certificate.

To make it fun - mention this $5 challenge at checkout and your cardstock purchase will be 50% off!   For on-line purchases add $5 challenge in the comments section and your total will be adjusted prior to shipping.

Have fun and I can't wait to see all the cards!

I'm still here! Summer at SBConnection!

Hi all, I know it's been awhile between posts - so sorry.  I'm certainly glad summer and the warm weather is finally here! 

This summer I will be traveling to two educational events.

On Friday, July 8 I will be attending a copic marker certification class.  I will learn how to use and teach you how to use their products.

A little bit about copics:  They are low-odor, so they won’t overwhelm you when using them in small rooms. Body markings are embossed onto the pen so they won’t rub off. Copic markers are environmentally friendly- you never throw them away, you just keep refilling them and replacing the tips. Markers can be airbrushed with and are blendable. 

Alcohol inks do not harm the paper surface. They can be layered and blended on surfaces other than paper as well. Alcohol inks are waterproof and will not wash away.

Copic Markers and inking pens will not dry out if they are not used and the caps are securely closed. This is guaranteed for at least 3 years.

I'm happy to say that I will be attending the Craft and Hobby Association Trade show this July.  It's been a few years since I last went and it will be good to see,  touch and hopefully play with all the new products being released.  

If there is a certain company or product you would like me to take a look at, please let me know!  

July is turning out to be a busy month!  But that just means that this fall will be exciting around here with new products arriving and new classes!

I have also set a crop schedule for the summer months.  I'm hoping that these summer dates will allow people who can't attend during the winter to get here during the next few months.
