Quick Heads Up

Coleen stopped in today with baby Clayton, how exciting for you customers who got to see him. We just wanted to give you a quick heads up about some classes coming up in January even if we haven't set the dates yet.

A Monthly Class of Techniques. You will complete a 9x9 binder album to keep all you notes and new techniques in.

Also a Monthly Class for Kids. They will be doing a double page lay-out each month. At the end of the year they will have a complete album.

Don't think we are leaving you adults out. We will also be having a All About Me Monthly Class. We will be using all the newest things from Basic Grey.

Customers like you make doing business a real pleasure. Don't forget there are only a few days left for the Candy Cane Sale. We are wishing all of you a beautiful holiday!
Janet & Coleen

Clayton Michael Peters

Clayton was born into this world on December 4th at 4:13 a.m. He weighed in at 7lbs 15oz. and 20 inches long. We are very excited to FINALLY have him here! He is just perfect! Hayden is a WONDERFUL big brother. He loves his baby brother very much and is quite the little helper. He loves to hold Clayton and give him lots and lots of kisses! I am doing well, and have been out and about a little.....Quick morning trips so we all get our naps at the same time!! I hope to be back to work by Feb 1st!


I also want to mention the Candy Cane Sale that is going on in the store! Make sure to stop in anytime between December 8th-December 20th to save $$$$ on the supplies that you need. Enjoy 20%-50% off your entire purchase. Simply come in and pull a candy cane from the box to see what your discount will be! (discount does not apply to gift certificates, classes, crop fees, and already in store sale items.) Sorry.

Sneak Peak

Check out this gorgeous album. Okay it's not the best picture. But it was the only one I had. This is the cover of the Dec 19th album class. The papers are by K & Co and they are a soft blue, minty green, light grey and cream colored collection. It uses beautiful butterflies and glittered - yes glittered patterned paper along with some intricate die cut patterned paper. That's what's on the cover. That's right no tedious hand cutting a pattern out of a piece of paper. It's all already die cut. The same is true of that pretty fairy tale butterfly you see in the top right corner - already die cut for you. This is one album you have to see in person to appreciate.

**New Stamp Teacher**

Mom and I are very excited to have fallen in the footsteps of
Sandy Sandrus. Sandy came to us with interest in teaching some stamp classes filled with technique for all of our stampers.

Here is more about Sandy:
Crafting in my life started at a very young age. I have been rubber stamping and designing greeting cards for over 15 years. I have fallen in love with all the wonderful papers that are out now, and it has made sharing ideas and techniques much more enjoyable. If you don't find me at a local store teaching, you might find me at the two local convention that are held each year teaching classes. Some of my work has even appeared in the crafting magazines.

Ornament Challenge:

So, mom put a challenge out to you all for Thanksgiving. Did you participate? We are asking you to bring in your challenge so, our judges can start judging! There is a $25.00 gift certificate on the line you know!

So, this month I decided to give you all a challenge.......Mine has nothing to do with scrapbooking except your creativity you use in your scrapbooks.

I was sitting here today watching mom make a few cute little ornaments to hang on my grandmas Christmas tree in her room at the nursing room she is at, and I thought to myself, what a great idea for old scraps that will fill my tree at home with the warmth of my creativity.

Well, my challenge to you is simple. Come up with some type of ornament using your scrapbooking supplies, papers, and embellishments. Bring them into the store to display on our tree, and after the 1st of the year we will vote, and the winner of the ornament challenge will receive a $25.00 gift certificate to the store!

I hope you will join me on this challenge as we celebrate one of the most joyous seasons of the year!
