By the time National Scrapbooking Day arrives next Saturday, May 2, Scrapbook Generation will have the largest and best selection of products in the almost five years since we've been open! I'm giving you an update today on all the stuff that's coming in this week, because it may get so crazy that I won't have time for much except some quick photos.

-- My Mind's Eye: everything new this awesome company has produced for this spring will arrive Tuesday, including the huge line called Breaking Free, plus two other collections called Pretty Please and Andrea Victoria.
-- Creative Imaginations: on Wednesday, we're getting 11 boxes weighing a total of 297 pounds! Themes include beach, Fourth of July and patriotic, general birthday, dance, cheerleading, swimming, England, Italy, Germany, Australia, Canada, Hawaii, Vegas, New York, Ireland, Mexico, Alaska, Florida, Washington D.C., boy birthday, girl birthday, autumn, dog, music, zoo, cowboy and cowgirl, baby boy, baby girl, summer and picnic, rock star, card games, antique and heritage, baking cookies, Shamu and dolphins, soccer, baseball, football, basketball, wedding, anniversary, family, Disney, cruise, drinks and wine, pizza, western, police, EMT, firefighter, Air Force, Navy, Army, Marines, veterans, Easter, and regular papers and die-cut papers for general use. Whew!

Sometime mid-week...
-- Petaloo: dozens of sets of both large and small flowers;
-- EK Success: the new "slim edger" border punches in four styles;
-- BasicGrey: the complete Wisteria and Lime Rickey collections;
-- Little Yellow Bicycle: the Baby Safari Boy and Baby Safari Girl collections of papers, die-cut papers, transparencies, fabric stickers, and much more;

-- Eyelet Outlet: a variety of shaped brads, like giraffes, sunglasses, baby carriages, dog bones, and more;
-- ANW Crestwood: the Hat's Off graduation collection, and the coolest birthday collection (it includes three die-cut papers in the shape of a gift, party hat, and cupcake!);
-- Various vendors: totes in several new styles and colors.

We've also created a new space for mini-albums and the goodies you need to complete them. To the cute albums we already have, we're adding new ones by...
-- 7Gypsies (raw chipboard),
-- Bo Bunny (colored chipboard "edgy" albums and word albums),
-- BasicGrey (milk chocolate and dark chocolate albums in several styles),
-- KaiserCraft (MDF albums in the shapes of cupcakes, butterflies, cars, crowns, trains, skulls, and more),
-- Fancy Pants (all four shapes of the new "mixed media" albums that combine chipboard, acrylics, and more);
-- Various vendors (other shaped albums including a cowboy boot!).

To go with the mini-albums, we're re-stocking 14 colors of binding rings by KaiserCraft, and some add-ons by Tim Holtz, like muse tokens, adage tickets, swivel clasps, word keys, and more!

Thanks so much for your support as we keep getting closer to the milestone of being in business for five years! All of this new stuff pouring in the back door of Scrapbook Generation wouldn't be possible were it not for the constant purchases going out the front door by our awesome customers from both Springfield and the surrounding areas. Our wonderful online customers across the nation also get our heartfelt gratitude for all the kit club memberships and page kits and sketch books they purchase at Thank you, thank you, thank you!
