Planner Meeting Saturday February 13th 11 AM

Planner Meeting 
Saturday February 13th 11 AM

Sonia is hosting a "planner love" meet-up on February 13th at 11 AM at Photo Scraps in Sykesville/Eldersburg MD. Since it is a scrapbook store, they have lots of tables where we can actually take our planner gear and hang out, work on our layouts, get to know each other, etc. I'm thinking we can do a washi swap, and maybe we can take planners to trade/sell/buy. The owner is going to put together a fun planner-themed craft we can do if we want, and she thinks she'll have some of the new planner-related CHA releases in by then--she already has some of the Carpe Diem line at the store.

-to sign up, call the store to get your name on the list for a table (it's free!!): 410-549-5187
-bring $5 for pizza, or feel free to bring your own food/drinks

New Custom Papers & Pre-Order New Color Bursts

Hi Everyone,

The roads are almost back to normal here in Eldersburg.  The main roads are all clear and so is our parking lot.  Just be careful of the giant snow piles blocking views when you turn.

We received an order of custom papers in.

Lisa Halstead designed this one for her son who goes to Salisbury.  If you would like a custom paper like this designed for your school, here are the details.  

1. You do have to buy the whole pack of 25 sheets. Perfect to share with other parents.  
2.  Since the single sheet price is $2, we will offer a full pack discount of 20% OFF pre-paid only.  
3.  Full College names will not be printed because of copyright laws.  Some mascot names may also not be printed.  The printing company will notify us of any copyright restrictions.  Notice how Lisa had the paper called Salisbury memories.  
4. You can pick your school colors.  We also had this design done in the Ocean City paper.  
5. Call the store or email Tracy to order.  410-549-5187 or

Photo Scraps will be Open on Tuesday January 26th, Earn a $5 Off Coupon

Hi Everyone,

Just as we at Photo Scraps are busily ordering all the new goodies for the Spring season, the BLIZZARD hits! Although it is fun to be snuggled inside with our families, it is very detrimental to a small business -- especially during our buying season. As always there are many exciting classes and events going on at Photo Scraps that we hope you will join us for. This week we are still giving away the prize-filled ENVELOPES with any $15 purchase. Additionally, to motivate you to support us during this difficult week we would like to offer you another wonderful incentive! For every $50 purchase you will receive a $5 comeback coupon to be used from Feb. 10-29! For example, spend $100 this week and receive 2 x $5 comeback coupons plus one prize-filled envelope!! Thank you as always for keeping our small business in your community.

Update on Lisa C's 
I am happy to update you that my 2016 Crafting Resolutions are working! I am feeling inspired to keep up with the goal of creating 100 2-page spreads (technically 200 pages, if you count each layout as 2 pages). Last week I spent 2 days at the Craft Cottage in Annapolis for some non-stop cropping time. There I completed 17 2-page spreads (34 individual pages). During the blizzard I did 2 more layouts! (I had hoped to do more while Jonas kept me inside, but I also took care of some much-needed household chores.) How are you doing with your crafting resolutions? If you haven't made any, it is not too late to get started. I am keeping a small calendar at the my desk to log what I have completed. Below are photos of a few of my layouts. Lisa C

What are your CRAFTING RESOLUTIONS this year? Pop into the store to post your resolution on our board and we will give you a coupon for a Free Crop to help you get started with your goal. 

Photo Scraps is Closed today, Monday January 25th

Hi Everyone,

Photo Scraps will be closed today due to the roads.  We can't get to the store to check out the parking lot until later in the day.  

We will reopen on Tuesday.  

Monday Plans, Pre-Order Impression Obsession

Hi Everyone,

My amazing husband with the help of his trusty snow blower, cleared the path to our street today.   As of 3:00 PM,  there were 3 cleared lanes on Liberty Road (out of 4) with giant snow piles at every intersection. Safeway was open and had lots of milk and bread.  Royal Farms, Exxon, and Shell were all out of gas.  Our store parking lot had not been plowed yet.  The Lisa's road had not been plowed yet either.  

SOOO, I am not sure if we will be open on Monday or not.  Please check our Blog or Facebook for updates and call the store to be sure we are there.   410-549-5187

 I am postponing the kick off for our Bible Journaling Group to Monday February 8th.

Also, when you do get out and about, please shop at your local small businesses.   We all rely on your patronage in order to stay in business.  Being closed on a typically busy weekend makes it difficult for all of us.

Updated Calendar
