As promised, here are photos of the three new K & Company collections that arrived today at Scrapbook Generation. is a heritage group with glitter papers, and even "frothed" papers! There are family tree papers, and others with areas to record your family heritage. Add in some matching embellishments, and you have a great way to showcase heritage photos. (This is the collection we are using for the Remember Them Club, so if you plan on adding extra pages to your album, now is a good chance to get extra matching supplies.)

Classic K "Margo" is a group which features primarily shades of green and rose. There is a wide assortment of papers, a huge amount of matching embellishments, and two coordinating 12x12 albums. This group includes something new, called die-cut sillhouette stickers.

Smitten is a deep pink and brown love/Valentine group, with, you guessed it, plenty of glitter and hearts. This group has a coordinating solid brown album with a photo opening in the cover.

Also from K & Company, several sets of glitter stickers in two font styles. These would be a great addition to all kinds of pages, and the sets even include numbers.

Changing the subject...
We're hard at work on the spring retreats in Branson, and the letters to those who are already registered will be going in the mail Tuesday. The teachers have completed all their class samples, and I'm glad to announce that we will be displaying those here at the store, as well as posting them on our website, to make class selection easier for everyone. At the very latest, the photos will be up by Thursday, Feb. 7. Just click on 2008 retreats for a link to the class photos.

Our theme this spring is "Fiesta Grande," which actually translates to "Great Holiday!" That's what we hope the weekends will be for everyone!

I'm excited about so many things about the retreats...
-- Food: We have what has to be one of the world's best caterers fixing our meals for us. Dee not only prepares great food, but she serves it with tremendous style!
-- Classes: Our teachers have gone above and beyond designing really special classes for the retreat. Awesome layouts, and some of the nicest mini-albums I've ever seen. (And if there is something we've forgotten to spritz with glimmer mist, I don't know what it would be!)
-- Something New: For those who want to make some great pages but don't want to attend a class during their crop time at the retreat, we've added "Classes To Go," which each include an Allison sketch and a Debbie sketch, photos of the completed pages, and all the paper and embellishments needed to make two double-page layouts. These kits are not pre-cut, so they are a little different from our usual kits. There will be Crate Paper kits, Scenic Route kits, and K & Company kits!

If you would like to attend either the March 7-9 retreat or the March 14-16 retreat, just call us at 417-886-0440. We'd love to have you join us. There's nothing quite like getting away from the real world, wearing comfy clothes, eating too much, laughing too hard, and staying up too late!
