Two special guests will be celebrating our sixth birthday with us on November 6!

We're ready to start sharing some birthday surprises! I can finally tell you more details about some of the special events we have planned for you Saturday, Nov. 6 when Scrapbook Generation celebrates its sixth birthday.

Earlier this year, the Fiskateers, the crafting ambassadors group sponsored by Fiskars, hosted some blog activities featuring live chats and sketch contests with Allison. Since then, we've kept in touch, and we're excited to announce that the lead Fiskateers will be here in Springfield to help us host the best birthday party ever. Fiskateer Rebecca Peck (far right) from the Philadephia area and Fiskateer Angela Daniels (far left) from the Reno, Nevada area will be at SG both Friday and Saturday to amp up the scrapbooking fun!

We encourage you to go to and become a Fiskateer (we have a link on the right sidebar of this page). There are a few easy steps to follow, including sending an email to Rebecca. There are some great reasons to join the Fiskateers, but the one that ties in with our birthday hoopla is this...if you are a Fiskateer and attend our birthday celebration and wear Fiskars' signature color -- orange -- you'll get a "special little gift" from Rebecca and Angela. I think we'll be seeing orange on November 6!

In addition, Rebecca and Angela will be teaching free mini-classes all day long on Saturday, and I've already warned them that it will be a long and busy day! They'll be demonstrating some great Fiskars tools and products, and will be available to share their expertise with all of us. They'll also have prizes to give away during the day! I'll have more details about other specials we'll be providing when you purchase Fiskars products as we get closer to birthday time.

Starting today, you can sign up for the special sixth birthday 'Super-Saver Scrapbooking sessions'...
To accommodate the large crowd we're anticipating for the celebration, we will be extending the store hours and hosting the Super-Saver Scrapbooking sessions at 9, 10:30, noon, 1:30, 3, and 4:30. This allows us to seat 120 people during the sessions. (Because this is a special event that will be a sell-out, we regret that we will not be able to honor requests for kits. You must attend and participate in the event to receive a packet. Note: Super Sketch Club members, don't will get your regular monthly Super-Saver kit!)

What is included in this Super-Saver?
• Ten beautiful double-sided papers from Dream Street's fall collection "Sam," which features cute trees and owls in warm autumn colors, plus some extras like buttons and twine.
What about titles?
• Scrapbook Generation is giving everyone a matching set of chipboard letters...FREE!
What is the price?
• The usual price for Super-Savers is $9. In honor of our sixth birthday, the price to make these three double-page layouts, complete with chipboard titles, is only $6!

As you've read in earlier posts, we are going all out to make this the best scrapbooking birthday on the planet. Donations of fabulous products for prizes are already pouring in from companies we do business with. We'll keep reminding you of the special plans we have in store, but today, focus on two things.

1. Go to and become a Fiskateer.
2. Call us at 417-886-0440 to sign up for the special Super-Saver at the unbelievable price of $6. With everything we have planned for November 6, the spots will go quickly!
