Come on in today and make this fun Spring layout anytime between 4-8 pm. Fee $3.00So much has been happening. Demo day was great fun. The projects were so inspiring. Then on Sunday, Gina had her Thru the Year album class. Gina really knows how to put a great album together and she will do it once again this week with her newest album class. Winter Friends is made with Bo Bunny's Jack Frost line of papers and embellishments. The class still has a couple of openings and is only $23 for this adorable album.

I just LOVE this new line from We R Memory Keepers. The White Out line has gorgeous 2 sided papers and is so bright and sunny that it makes me think spring is here. If only the weather were as sunny as the papers....

Die Cuts with a View has a new kids line that has both boy and girl papers that also scream spring.

Lisa Hetrick was nice enough to share this adorable Easter layout and card that she made with the new Easter line from Reminisce.

I'm an idea book junkie and can't wait to try some of these new books we just got in.

Our Sports section is growing with lots of new basketball and lacrosse papers and stickers.

We have tons of clear stamps now.

New doctor visit and dental visit papers. I love the tooth fairy bag for the kids.

New photos of class projects coming up

Preview of our Thru the Year album class. Gina did a great job on this mini chipboard album. Each page has a pocket with a jouranling tag. She also decorated the covers of the album to match the pages. This class will only be offered one time this Sunday January 20th from 2:00 to 4:00 pm. Class Fee $30 and the class size is limited.I've had lots of people aske me if I really thought that they could learn to paint on their scrapbook pages. My friend Sandy assures me that each person taking her class on Thursday January 31st will walk away from class with a 2 page layout they painted. She is a certified Donna Dewbury One Stroke paint instructor and I believe her. Class fee is $15 for this introductory class.

Lots of news and new products

Creative Cafe is finally here!

The papers are so nice. Great 2 sided patterns. I have to say I love the buttons. You can buy them individually or by the bag. The felt flowers and words are just the right touch for a fun layout. There are even card packs and mini albums.

The bad news is that they didn't get me any of the idea sheets so we still need to wait on the official creative cafe happy hours. You are welcome to come in and create your own pages and purchase the product for use at home.
The layout of the week is back and better than ever. We wanted the first layout of the year to be a special one, so there is brand new patterned paper, 3 new years overlays, two different types of ribbons, brads and gold ink on some of the edges. It will be on sale starting today for $6 and available until supplies run out. If you want your layout of the week reserved for you, you may have your name added to our list and we will hold a copy for 1 week for you to come pick it up. Joining the list is free. If you purchase 22 of the 24 layouts this year, you will receive $15 off the album of your choice at the end of the year.

So many new products were delivered this week. Valentines products galore.

Basic Grey 2 Scoops full line and some Basic Grey tools like their file set for chipboard and the rub-on roller.

Doodles are all the rage and we have all the cooolest templates from Crafter's Workshop.

Lisa Hetric is back teaching classes for us. Her first class will be a two page layout that has 9 photos. You can choose the papers to match the photos you bring. Wednesday January 30st at 6 pm. Class fee $20. Instructions will be given out to all class participants before the class.

Look at some of our great Demo day samples. Come join us on Saturday January 19th from 11-4 for Demo day. Each station is $2. If you complete all stations, you will receive 10% off your purchases for the day. Tickets can be purchased at the door.

Hi Everyone,

Here are the long promised photos of all the new goodies we have been getting at the store. Every day is Christmas at Photo Scraps. I'm starting out with the layout I will be teaching on Tuesday night at 6:00pm. This two page layout is using the wonderful Garden Party line from Kaiser Craft. I'm sure you will love the heavy two sided papers. We do have some spots left in the class. Just call us on Tuesday to reserve a spot or shoot me an email if you are interested. My email is

On to the product info. We got the whole line from Flair of their 12 month papers and stickers. If you love this set, you may want to take our Through the year 6 x6 mini album class on January 20th from 2-4 with Gina.

We got new movie night paper, band paper, great outdoors papers, a wonderful line of Valentines papers, stickers and velvet ribbons from Flair. Great Expressions sent us the cutest Valentine stamps for the stamp of the month. I'm not a big stamper but I really love their card samples using cardstock and the Bo Bunny Smitten line. Imaginesce Valentine papers have metal foil and glitter. Their flowers come in reusable drawstring bags and the medium sized ones have 90 flowers in the bag.

There were six smiling faces leaving the store today after Gina's Mini boardbook class. Everyone had fun playing with paint (we have a growing selection) and adding ribbons to this colorful book. This sold out class will be run again as soon as we restock the Kaiser paper line.

Last but not least, join us for the Bo Bunny My Family Album class on Sunday January 13th. The class is just $25 and you will go home with this adorable book to display your family's photos in. Great for gift giving too.

This week has Flown by.....

Hi everyone,

This was a crazy week with our All Day New Years Day crop and we had our first Friday night crop tonight. I have to brag a bit and say they we both a great success. Everyone left happy and that was my goal.

The product is filling the store. I placed about 5 orders today to get ready for our demo day on the 19th. I am so excited about the projects we are planning but I don't want to give too much away. I will say that it will have a valentine/hearts theme and that Lisa Hetrick is planning a cool demo for us. When I get the samples I will post photos.

I have been so busy working at the store that I didn't get a chance to post the photos I took of the new products yet. You really need to see some of the great glittery papers in person. I will try hard to get them up tomorrow. The classes are starting to fill up and our first one is this Sunday with Gina Painter. The board book she made is adorable.

Well, I really should sleep. Yes, I typed this at 1:43 am. Good Night. Tracy
