Photo Scraps will be Closed on Tuesday

Hi Everyone,

Due to the uncertainty of what Tuesday's weather will bring, we will be closed on Tuesday.  Wednesday we will be closing at 5:00 for Halloween.  I really hope the weather will clear out for the kids to Trick or Treat.   We are lucky and still have power.   I hope you are safe and warm too.   My crazy kids thought it would be fun to skateboard and roller skate in the rain.

Wacky Wednesday Cards
I did have some time to play with cards today.   Of course, I dragged out my Frantage stuff to play with.
We will need a bit of time Wednesday morning to get this card prepped since I didn't bring enough to prep at home.  We will also have an assortment of other cards out for you to make too.  They will be available to make all day Wednesday and Thursday.  Just $2 each.

Photo Scraps will be Closed on Monday & 60 Second Shopping Spree Winners

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are warm, safe and with power!  At this point, I have no idea how bad the storm will be but I'm sure no one will be out shopping tomorrow.   We will be closed on Monday the 29th.  Depending on the weather, we may be closed on Tuesday also, but I will send out an update if we decide to close.   Take care and maybe you can have some time to make something crafty.

60 Second Shopping Spree
The winner was Dedra Wolff!  Dedra managed to get some inks, stamps, colored pencils, stickles caddy and more.   I am trying to upload the video of her run for the stash.

Our 20 Second Shopping Spree winner was Paulette Hall.  Paulette knew exactly how to spend $100 in 5 seconds.  2 different sets of Spectrum Noir pens.

Thank you to all our wonderful customers who made this event so much fun and who braved leaving their houses today.  We were taking photos with multiple cameras so I will post photos over the next few emails.

Demo Day Saturday 11-4, New Memory Box dies & Silhouette Demos

Hi Everyone,

I forgot to mention that we need our Copic ladies to bring their Copic Markers with them on Demo Day. Tina and I are using A LOT of colors and we will not have enough for everyone to share but we will have some. We are planning on Tina having 12 seats for customers her Cornacopia card and will need lots of markers. The good news is that you need the same colors for my Santa Card. You can bring colored pencils or any other markers you like to color with.

Here is the list of Copics:
Sky - BG0000 (or chalk)
Fence - C0,1,4
Cornucopia - E27,31,35,37
Leaves - G24/Y38/YG93
Indian Corn - Y08,19,23/YR09,14/YG67/R59
Corn Husks - Y32/E27
All Pumpkins - Y02-YR09,68
Small gourde - G85/Y35
Large gourde - E43/YR61
Apples - R22,29
Apple Basket - G14,19,21
Mums - R22,37
Mums Pot - YR21
Grass/Hay - YR21
Bring colorless blender 0

Here is the list of Copic Markers that Tina used, however she asks that you bring any reds, greens, oranges, browns and grays that you have as there are many options that would look great! Please have your Copics labeled (or wrapped with wahsi tape) and if you bring them they are for your personal use only so no worries. We want you to go home with the markers you came with.

We have been busy unpacking boxes of new products and a huge reorder of Copic Markers. The new Memory Box dies have arrived and I couldn't resist playing, photos below. I added 4 times in the next few days that I will be available to run thru a Silhouette demo for you if you are thinking about getting one of these amazing machines. I personally love the fact that you do not have to buy expensive cartridges to get the most from this machine, just use the fonts on your computer.

New Copic Classes Coming to PhotoScraps!
Lisa is finalizing two new classes for the Copic line-up at PhotoScraps!   These classes will be showing up on the November/December calendar.

The Copic Spotlight classes will be focused on specific techniques to take your color work to new levels. Here's what she has planned:

Copic Spotlight: Copic and Colored Pencil Coloring without Lines
Copic Spotlight: Coloring and Creating Reflections
Copic Spotlight: Copic and Colored Pencil. Coloring without lines and adding dimension to your work.

This class will focus on coloring images without "stamped" lines to create three dimensional effects. We will also cover colored pencil techniques and how using them together with Copics add advanced dimension to your work. We will walk through a coloring and detail process that will be completed in class with a sample image to take home for practice. Full-color handouts provided. Here's a sample image of what you will create.
