Saturday is going to be a special day at Scrapbook Generation. It's the third anniversary of the beginning of our sketch sessions on Saturdays, which has led to all kinds of wonderful things for us as a business! From our customers came the idea to compile the individual computer sketches into a book, and it's been an idea that has transformed us from being a store reaching people in one community into a business whose reach extends not just nationwide, but internationally as well.

As I am posting this article, there are four separate threads on the first page of the Two Peas in a Bucket message board that are talking about our sketch books or our page kits. It seems as if everyone is discovering how easy it is to use the sketches, and that it doesn't stifle your creativity, but enhances it.

Back to Saturday sketches, to celebrate this milestone, we have special events planned for all four of our sketch sessions in April and May. This Saturday, April 10, everyone who attends the "Basic Sketch" sessions will receive 50% off the cost of their papers, and get a free title for the layout. As a bonus, you'll receive a card sketch to use the "scraps" left over from the layout. (This same offer applies for the Basic Sketch sessions in May.)

The photos above show the layout we'll be making on Saturday. You'll have enough paper left to make not just one card from the bonus sketch, but two! (And as always at our sketch sessions, you can choose other papers to purchase if these don't work for you.) With your half-off paper offer, you'll be making this layout and two cards for less than $2.50!

Bonus Reminder: If you attend three of the four sketches sessions in April and May, you receive your choice of spring-themed page kits, a $12.99 value.

We hope you can join us this Saturday. To sign up for a session (10, 11:30, 1, or 2:30) just call SG at 417-886-0440. See you then!

And don't forget that this is "Sketches Week" on Allison's blog. She has some gorgeous and creative layouts for you to view all week, with lots of details about her creative process.

Any chance you will ship the sketch class kits - for those of us that wish we were within road trip distance to MO (but aren't)?? :)
