Graphic 45 is here too!

So much has been happening. Last month we were an on sight store for the Lay it Out Loud Crop in Lake Geneva and it was fabulous. We had never done anything like that and we learned a lot on how to do it even better. So in May we will be the on sight store for another crop retreat. I have to tell you about it! "Spring into Scrapbooking" is the name of the crop, and this time it will be at "The Abbey Resort" in Lake Geneva. It is only 25 minutes from the store and it sounds like a fabulous time. We will even be offering two classes (extra fee) at this crop. Check it out at,
It sounds like a great value and a fun time! We talked to some ladies at our store crop this past weekend and there was a lot of interest. More details about the classes next time.

We have a lot of classes coming up this April. An Easter Layout with We Are Memory Keepers Hip Hop Line, a Graphic 45 Layout, Basic Grey Layout, a Shabby Chic My Minds Eye Layout. Then we also have the Karen Foster Designer Drawers class using some new Bo Bunny. There is a beautiful Mini Book offered using some 7gypsies Victoria papers and envelopes. Check out "Chipboard Elements", it uses Tim's new inks & metals with Wendy Vecchi stamps. Lisa has a cute class "Gift Giving Essentials" where you will make everything you need to give a gift (card, bag & box) using Webster's Pages papers. I'll put up photos of these soon, but you should come in and check it out. The samples are on the table by the register.

Upcoming Crops are April 9&10- 30, & May 1.

I look forward to seeing all of you, let me know if you read the blog when you come in, or leave a comment below.
