Thanks to everyone who stopped by Friday and Saturday and helped Scrapbook Generation celebrate National Scrapbooking Day. We had a busy time with all of you who took advantage of our sale, and also with the ladies who came and cropped with us. We got a little silly during "Tropical Trivia," part of our luau-themed festivities, but that's to be expected!

Kodi Logan of Springfield is the winner of the $100 shopping spree, and Amy Egger of Springfield is the winner of four Midnight Madness crops. Congratulations!

We received three great new paper collections from Autumn Leaves this morning. There is a vintage-looking set, a primary-colored set, and a bright-colored set (French Twist), and each set has at least one paper which is die-cut around the edges. For example, the primary group has a paper cut in the shape of a large flower. The vintage set has a paper with a decorative die-cut border. In addition, French Twist has a matching set of chipboard journaling shapes, and the primary set has matching ribbon and the coolest huge plastic letters in red, blue, and yellow!

Also, from All My Memories we have one of the neatest storage items for small embellishments that I've ever seen. It's a black rack with 10 silver containers. Each of the containers has a clear top so you can see inside, and a varying number of compartments. What a great way to keep all the little stuff close at hand, in a stylish way!

Coming up at Scrapbook Generation:
-- The May 12 Free Saturday Seminar has only 5 spots left, so we are opening up a new section. Just call us at 886-0440 to register. We are going to work with stitching templates and learn how easy it is to add a bit of handstitching to a scrapbook page or card. The stitching templates from Timeless Touches, have arrived, and I'm hiding them in the office until Saturday, because every time we get them in they're gone before we know it! In addition to all the great alphabet templates, border and shape templates we've had before, they have three new ones: a script alphabet template, a 12x12 circle template, and a flourishes template.

I was wondering you are putting all the stitching templates you have out Saturday morning. I'm taking a class later in the day, but if there is a chance you would be sold out by then, I will come in when you open. I have been waiting for these!

If the way the sets of foam stamps is any indication, it might not be a bad idea to come in and check out the stitching templates in the morning! I couldn't believe how quick we went through the stamps.
