Back from CHA

Hey Ladies,
We are back from the trade show!!!! The beautiful things we had seen were countless. I can tell you it will be worth coming back to the blog to see photos. I will post a some every few days. The things that we ordered were simply beautiful. There will also be a variety of styles. We did vintage, cute, elegant, and simple. We also are including some new companies to our collection. With each set of photos I will tell you of our adventures.

We also had some fun at the store in between the CHA days. Saturday July 24th was Melissa Frances Day at Lorraine's. Melissa taught three classes, (an art journal, cards, and a kitchen coupon book). We have a limited amount of kits left for these classes, if you didn't get in on the class come in asap to get a kit. I took each of the classes and loved my projects. The books are timeless treasures, & the cards are soooo pretty! So get em fast, they will soon be gone.

Wednesday, July 28th we had KC Burmingham from My Minds Eye here to teach a layout class. We all had fun creating with My Minds Eye "So Sophie", but best of all was the preview of the NEW line that is on it's way to here... "Lost and Found"!!!!! It is beautiful is all I can say. Come check out the sample projects made with this new line here at Lorraine's.

Can't wait to see you all at the store. we are working on new projects for classes in August. Calender will be up asap. Come in and check out what we are working on!

New shipments in.... We Are Memory Keepers -Heebie Jeebie/ Tattered Angels- Glaze, &, Glam/ Karen Foster new State-ments. More always on the way!

Happy Memories!

July Happenings

Here's hoping you all are enjoying your summer and creating memories you can preserve. We have been busy planning some exciting things for you to enjoy!
.... First we have a 12 hour crop this month. July 10... from 10am to 10pm. We will have lunch, dinner and some games! Come get some pages done with inspiration at the ready!
....We have some great classes coming up too. Lisa's popular "Designer Drawers" is back by popular demand. Use them for your scrap organization or for you jewelry. Create this beautiful box. We have a new class "Beginner's Stamping" where Lisa will take you through all the basics of stamping, inks, and embossing. I also have one more class for the "Remember Album". There only a few kits left so we have scheduled another class for Saturday July 17th at 12 noon. This is a stunning album and requires 3 1/2 to 4 hours to make. Bring your own adhesives and prepare to make something you will treasure. (Photos are on the blogs last post.) Also check out the "Altered Box" using Tim Holtz "Box Feet". It is STUNNING!!!
