National Scrapbooking Day

Sorry to have been away so long. My computer has been sick. I am sending this on an I-touch. I hope you can join us Saturday May 2, for National Scrapbooking Day! There will be a 2 page layout workshop at 10:30 am for $10, this is with My Minds Eye new "Penny Lane" papers. There will also be a $5.00 make and take that is a must do, a beautiful Grungepaper flower. We will take you through all the steps of ink, stamping, and use Tim Holtz metal with a pin backing if you choose. You won't want to miss this. There will also be FREE make and takes, giveaways, and a crop at 12 noon to midnight for $35 (2 meals and loads of fun).

We hope you will come in to celebrate with us, and see what is new like;
Tim Holtz Ideaology
Ranger paints, inks, & tools
Robin's Nest Dew Drops
Fancy Pants Papers, & NEW Frames
ReNea's House papers and accessories-Creative Imaginations
Sizzix flowers & flourish Original Dies
Sizzix Storage
Hiedi Swapp Invisibles papers
Bo Bunny My Word Books and new papers, stickers and ribbons

This is just what I remember off the top of my head, there is still more.
We will have the samples up of the May Methodology class, and the technique ( remember this is only offered the first Monday of the month). You can also check out the altered box of Jen's and our other workshops for May.
Hope to see you there!

Another country heard from...

Realizing that some of the things I'm going to ramble about in today's post are covered in today's post by Kim, I'll first apoplogize, then introduce myself....I'm jen...another of the Lorraine's Memories "family". I really just wanted to share my excitement for NATIONAL SCRAPBOOKING DAY with all of you.
Everyone has a few days scattered throughout the year that they really look forward to...birthdays, anniversaries, the last (or the first) day of school, and of course, NATIONAL SCRAPBOOKING DAY! On Saturday, May 2nd, Lorraine's Memories will be celebrating, and would love for you to be a part of it! We'll be here from 10 am until....mmmm...midnight or so. If you have a scrapbooking emergency, this is when to have it, although the make n takes will only be offered until 5:00 pm, (so we can tend to our croppers, too) This is the day we as scrapbookers and papercrafters can get together and get inspired, learn something new, and make some new friends.
We'll be kicking off the day with a two page layout using My Mind's Eye PENNY LANE papers and DEW DROPS from the Robin's Nest. This class will be from 10:30 am until Noon and the cost is $10. Be sure to call us or stop in to reserve your spot!
Beginning at noon we'll have a variety of make n takes. One is an embossed thank you card using the Ellison BIG SHOT machine. Can't wait to show you how EASY it is! Try your hand at stamping with Technique Tuesday. We'll be using TECHNIQUE TILES, MINI MISTERS and STICKLES to create a great spring embellishment. These will be run throughout the day and are free to you...to learn some new techniques or brush up on your skills.
Curious about GRUNGE PAPER? HITCHES? DISTRESS INKS? Beginning at noon, and every half hour through the day, we'll be teaching you to transform these fabulous idea-ology products into "Grungepaper Flower" pins. For a $5.00 fee we'll introduce you or re-aquaint you with the altered world of TIM HOLTZ.
I'll be "working" part of 12 hour crop, and would love to see a full house in honor of the day. We always have alot of fun, great food...and who doesn't like to get free stuff-and a discount to boot? While you're here, be sure to check out the samples around the store of all of our projects...and sign up for a class soon. We love to share our ideas with you...and are here to help you chronicle your life's fleeting moments.
See you Saturday!
