NEW Travel layout class!

Irene of 'Little Masterpieces Kits', creator of some of the awesome kits we sell in the store has created this AWESOME 2 page layout class for you to take! Actually, perhaps we should call it "4 page" layout... because it has FOUR flaps that open up to reveal more photos!  That's right, the center die cut opens on both sides as well as another flap on either side! So by the time you are done putting pictures on it, you'll have filled up about 4 pages worth of scrapbooking! What an AWESOME deal! Irene will be teaching this class on May 14th, 4pm to 6pm, for only $24.99.  This is a ONE TIME deal! Spaces are limited! So if you want in, call the store ASAP to reserve your space!  563-391-0099

We have had some questions about the rules for our Friday Night Crops. So...basically, you can come anytime on Friday, AS LONG AS you come AFTER any scheduled classes are over.  You can bring whatever you want to work on, and you can bring in whatever food you'd like.  We provide soda, water, and snacks. Seats must be pre-paid in advance, however, we do make exceptions if space is available and you phone us an hour or two before the crop. Children 12 and above are welcome, but must also have a paid seat and be able to sit for the entire crop. Please use your best judgement on this...this is a Ladies Night Out for many, and children may be disruptive to their creative night away from their own children. In addition, adult conversations happen and may not be appropriate for small ears. Thank you for making everyone's cropping experience enjoyable!

Mark your calendar for National Scrapbooking Day!!!

Saturday, May 7th!!!
Free Mini-book Make-n-take!
Free Card
If you are a Sizzix fan...HOLD ON!!!
