Crafting is Cool
August 7, 2014
Urban Scrapbooker

I can't believe it's already the 7th of August.  It feels like we were just in Utah and I'm still trying to get everything organized!  I've still got some fun Pre-Order emails to send out.  Things are a bit dis-jointed with this summer's release because there wasn't a central CHA show so trying to keep track of all the releases has kept me running in circles :)  But that seems to be my norm anyway...  LOL! 

We are already starting to get in new products and now the challenge is where to put it all!  That's the fun part :)

Summer Release Pre-Orders
In case you missed any, you can check out all the pre-order emails on our website here and just email me your list.  The linkss will be taken down from the website when we are no longer taking pre-orders for that product line...

We will be turning in the Tim Holtz Stamp order tonight, so if you still need to get your order in, please email me today...  Click here to see Tim's new stamps...

I still have one more pre-order email for Lawn Fawn to send out.  The fan in my laptop died the other day so I'm limited to about 30 minutes of work at a time.  I've gotten a bunch of pre-order emails and I'm working on getting through them.  If you haven't heard from me yet, don't worry.  I should be through the emails in another day or two and you'll get an email confirmation when i've got your order logged...  :)
Summer Preview Party
It was a different kind of show this time, so the preview party will be a little different than usual, but it'll still be a party!  Please RSVP if you can make it...

August 15th 6:00-8:30 - FREE 
(depending on the response, we may ask you to bring your folding chair if you have one...) 
Did You Know...
We now have PVA glue.  This is a wonderful glue for making your own books and can be a little tricky to find it, but we have it in stock!  If you are curious, ask Donna about it the next time you see her.  She knows all the ins & outs of this cool glue.
My Mind's Eye
Our first summer release has arrived and, boy oh boy, is it a big one!  We have 5 beautiful new lines and I've almost got everything checked in!  All the product should be out by the end of the day :)  Check out My Mind's Eye Website to see all the fun stuff in each of these lines (some papers even have glitter and foil!)

Welcome Gardeners (Paper Gardeners, that is!)  This "class" is going to be run more like a club, featuring Susan's Garden Dies.  Each month we'll meet and you'll learn how to make the flower of the month as well as get the die as part of your club fee.  Then create something fun to bring with you the following month to share featuring the flower from the previous month.  The goal of this club is to learn these great flowers, get inspiration from your fellow Gardeners, and get in a little afternoon/evening socializing time!
