The June "Super-Saver Scrapbooking" free class sessions are going to be bright and lively! I've loved this group of papers by ANW/Crestwood since I first saw them, especially the die-cut page shaped like a present. I can't wait to start working with this set of materials!

In case you don't know what the sessions are all about, I design three 12x12 double-page layouts using 6-7 sheets of cardstock, 3-4 sheets of patterned paper, 1 sheet of letter stickers or die-cuts, and a few embellishments like jewels, brads, buttons, and ribbon. We put together packets of the supplies. When you register for the free class, just pre-pay $9 (plus tax) to cover the cost of your materials (unlike sketch sessions, substitutions in papers are not available).

Using our classic designs, you'll be able to create three photo-ready double-page layouts in less than an hour and a half, all for under $10!

Like usual, the two morning sessions are getting close to being full. Please call 417-886-0440 to register and pre-pay for the 10, 11:30, 1, or 2:30 sessions. We'd love to have you join us on Saturday, June 6!

Updates on other stuff...
-- Stacey has a really cute "Creative Cards" class coming up Thursday night. The group of three cards uses a spring theme and has some fun touches like transparencies. Cost is just $10!
-- The Midnight Madness crop this Friday night just has a few spots left.
-- Since this is a holiday weekend, we have a "Saturday Crop" scheduled for this Saturday, instead of the usual classes. Cost is $8 (VIP Club members can attend for free!) and includes snacks, drinks, and 10% off all purchases (for a paid crop). We have several people signed up, but still have room for more!
-- We are open on Memorial Day from 10 am until 5 pm.
-- Allison has an awesome class coming up on Thursday, May 28. It's a "My Wishes" layout similar to the layout of hers that was published in Creating Keepsakes magazine a couple of months ago. You'll use beautiful glittered paper by My Mind's Eye. Cost is only $15!
-- The June/July newsletter will be available soon!

Updates on new products...
-- Doodlebug: We'll have nine new mini-groups out on the shelves by early afternoon tomorrow (Thursday). The papers arrived a few days ago, then the cuter-than-cute brads, and now we're just waiting for the glitter stickers and glitter alphabet sets and glitter frills! These are bright and summery groups with several themes. I'll put pics on the blog Thursday.
-- Jillibean Soup: The three paper collections and matching goodies will arrive Friday. We'll be getting Cream of Mushroom Soup, Minestrone, and White Bean!
-- I've also recently ordered new and fun stuff from Best Creations, Graphic 45, Prima, KI Memories, Crafters Workshop, SugarTree, Melissa Frances, SEI, Creative Imaginations, and Jenni Bowlin Studio. Some of the groups will debut at Scrap-a-Palooza, and others will be here in the store first. I'll keep you updated on when everything is arriving as soon as I have definite ship dates.

Updates on events...
-- Scrap-a-Palooza is filling up fast. We had such a great time in January! Hope you can join us for this affordable June 13 mega-crop filled with mega-fun. Go to for more info and for a link to the registration page.
-- Fall retreats in Branson (weekends of Oct. 16 and Oct. 23): A reminder that in just a couple of weeks, registration is opened up to everyone. If you attended in the spring, you still have 10 days to make sure you get the date you want before the remaining spots are up for grabs. We've already had lots of inquiries from new people wanting to get in, including a group of eight!

I wish you offered your Super Saver & Sketch classes on the internet. I love seeing the different ideas. I'll keep reading your blog. Love seeing all the new products.

I'll have to ask my daughter Stacey about that! She probably knows if that is something we could try. Thanks for the kind words!

Debbie Sanders said...

Denise, I should have also told you that we can ship the Super Savers and the sketch classes to you if you would be interested. We do that for lots of others.

Denise said...

That's good to know maybe I'll add them to my club kit I receive

Debbie said...

Just give us a call if you want to add either one of the two sketch classes, or the Super Savers! (or email, whichever is easier)
