Copics are here and ScrapPINK is tomorrow

Tomorrow we are holding our 3rd Annual ScrapPINK charity crop. The crop allows each participant a fun -filled day at here at Scrapbook Place while making a difference in the fight against breast cancer. We're proud to say we were able to raise $500 last year for the Susan G. Komen foundation and we hope to send an even bigger check this year. We have some awesome raffle prizes and there will be giveaways galore. If you don't have plans tomorrow, we still have a couple openings and we'd love to have you join us. Call the store today at 561-218-1006 to book your spot.

We got them.... The COPICS are here! As a start, we got 72 glorious colors of marker goodness. Whether you're a stamper or not, these are the markers you need to achieve the best shading and blending. If you haven't experienced these markers yet, we'd be happy to give you a demo of how they work.

Internationally known Creative Imaginations Designer Marah Johnson's visit is just around the corner. Have you signed up for her classes yet? She will be teaching 2 mini album classes full of techniques and we'll definately leave with a little extra sparkle and a ton of product knowledge.

The October class calendar is ready. View it here or pick up a copy on your next visit to the store.

Have a great weekend and we'll post soon...

We're totally hyped... Marah Johnson's visit to Scrapbook Place is only is 3 1/2 weeks away! Marah will be here Saturday, October 17th and she will be teaching not one but two totally awesome technique classes!! The first is called the "Bird Book" using the ever polpular Tidepools collection and the second is a mini book based on the "TWILIGHT" saga. Both classes are technique heavy and you're sure to leave with a ton of sparkle and maybe inky fingers.

Bird Book - Sign up here

Twilight Book - sign up here
Here's Marah's bio for those of you who aren't familiar with her or her work.....
I grew up all over the United States. During my young childhood, my parents embraced the true “hippie” lifestyle and spent much time moving from place to place making and selling their art. Most of my parent’s friends were artisans or craftsmen. I would spend hours watching them create, and, after my constant pestering, nearly all of them would let me have a hand at their trade. By the age of six, I could tool leather, bead on a loom, carve faces from clay, and sew doll clothing on my sewing machine. I was always happiest if my hands were busy. That is still the case today.

Michelle Van Etten is a fabulous teacher and true sweetheart. We would like to publicly thank her for teaching in the store and we welcome her back anytime.

Now on to business...we are still getting product from CHA. Can you believe it? Where is it all going to go - home with you!! Basic Grey brought us Eerie, Indian Summer and Eskimo Kisses. Tons of the new Prima is here and hanging on the wall. We're sold out already on some, but the good news is we've reordered and we're still waiting for more stuff to come.

In case you haven't heard of this new tool, you'll definately want to come to the store to get a mini demo. Anyway, the entries were as terrific as ever. After must deliberation, a winner was chosen and the $50.00 gift card goes to Sandi D. Congrats!!
