Design Diva Alisa has a CHA Surprise for you! 

But first, have you checked out all the classes we have at Scrapaganza?  Not only do we have the KISS Layouts (Keep It Simple Scrapper), Scrappinista Club, Preserve the Past and Sizzix Die Club, we also have Cricut classes!

Beginning Cricut Expression, Cricut II (for any Cricut) and the Cricut Gypsy classes will all teach you the basics of working with your Cricut machine and Gypsy and will take your Cricut crafting to new levels!

All of our classes are on our online calendar if you can't make it to the store to pick up a calendar there. Just go to  Scrapaganza Online Calendar to see what we're offering!  And if you'd like to sign up for a class, you can sign up and pay over the phone to reserve your spot!

And now for that surprise!  Alisa happened by the Provocraft (makers of the Cricut) booth at CHA and she got a few things to give away to one lucky winner!  Post a comment to this blog post or to the Facebook post and be entered into the drawing on Tuesday morning!  And what could you win?  Alisa has a Cricut Deep Cut Housing and blade, a package of black Cricut vinyl and a package of Cricut vinyl transfer tape! If you've never used the vinyl with your Cricut before, you can use vinyl to create wall, window or framed word/shape art. But you can also use the vinyl to make stencils for glass etching or making t-shirts!

Remember, make a comment on this post or on our Facebook post to win!

NEW! Echo Park, We R Memory Keepers, Le Pens, Bix and RAGBRAI!

We have new Echo Park! This collection is just lovely! Perfect for many occasions, weddings, gardens, travel (think old victorian bed and breakfasts!), proms, and some of the patterned papers are basic prints that I like to have in my stash for general use (check out the music note paper!) Here is a sample of what is in this collection:
 I just LOVE the elements stickers!
LOVE LOVE the alpha stickers!!!

This weekend is the Bix AND RAGBRAI!  Are you in the Bix this year, or is someone you know? Do you know someone biking the RAGBRAI?  These are local events and it's hard to find embellishments for them, but we DO have some die cuts! We have male and female joggers (the female could also be walking) and we have "BIX 7" die cut titles. We also have bikes and RAGBRAI titles!

NEW WE R Memory Keepers Spookville Collection!
Oh my goodness is this collection CUTE!!! This must be seen in person! There are so many cute papers and embellishments! Here is just a small sample of what is in this collection.
This is one of 3 sets of stickers!
Adorable metal brads!
 One of 6 different stamp sets!
 And of course we must have the so-cute tags that WRMK is so famous for! 

Some of our CHA orders are starting to come in! We have some new tote bags that are just gorgeous, some of them are photo-display bags, so come check them out!
So come in to the store ASAP to see what is NEW!

Linda Cain coming in August!!!

You read that right! We loved Linda Cain so much last year that we had to bring her back!
She has two new classes to teach you some fun and fabulous techniques! Above is the Embossed Canvas class, the first of two classes being taught on August 27th. Space is limited so sign up SOON!

The second fabulous class is the Chunky ATC class. ATC stands for Artist Trading Card; ATCs are created by artists and crafters of all types, to try out new techniques or create their artwork in smaller, easier to trade, sell or gift size. Well Linda has taken it to a whole new level by making it a three dimensional decor item! Imagine how this would look on your craft table or desk!

These classes have already been selling so don't wait too long to sign up if you want in on them! These items are both on display at Scrapaganza if you'd like to see them in person. Here are the details:

Embossed Canvas:  Saturday, August 27th, 10am - 1pm,  $35
Chunky ATC:  Saturday, August 27th, 2pm - 5pm,  $35

Don't forget, you can use your Class Club card with these classes! Don't have a Class Club card yet? Ask us what it's all about and get yours today, you'll save lots of $$!!!
