Gearing up for our seventh Scrap-a-Palooza!
The week before Scrap-a-Palooza is always a hectic time at SG, and this one is especially so, with 280 scrapbookers ready to roll their tote bags in for a day of cropping and shopping heaven at Remington's this Saturday! There are kits to make, goodie bags to fill, classes to prepare, and most of all, a mountain of new products to process and prepare for sale. Actually, this last activity has been going on since November! In order to treat the Palooza shoppers to a sea of new paper collections, we've been ordering like crazy for months.

I've told you in an earlier post the names of the 60-plus new papers collections we'll be debuting, but I haven't mentioned some of the other goodies you'll find first at Palooza, then the following week at SG.

• All the Sew Easy tools and gadgets from We R Memory Keepers. We had all these stitching tools for about five minutes one Saturday, then whoosh, it was all gone. To meet the demand, we'll have a huge supply on hand at Palooza, and one of Ali's big-screen demos will be on how to use this cool new tool.
• A huge amount of new clear stamp sets, over 150 sets (I got carried away!) from Inkadinkado, Fiskars, EK Success, American Crafts, Crafty Secrets, My Sentiments Exactly, Hot Off the Press, The Paper Company, Hero Arts, and more.
• Rubber cling stamp sets from Unity.
• The new Chip Art products by GCD Studios and Melody Ross (formerly of Chatterbox). There are shaped chipboard albums, chipboard shapes, mallets, mats, and "stamps" that are used to deboss patterns and designs onto the chipboard. Looks like totally awesome fun to me, and I think you'll like it, too!
Ranger's new Perfect Pearls mist in every color available.
• Tons of new 12x12 and smaller templates by Crafters' Workshop and Hot Off the Press.
• Pearl and rhinestone flourishes by KaiserCraft.
• Regular and glitter embossing powders.
• Vintage "book covers" by 7Gypsies.
• More edger punches by EK Success and Martha Stewart.
• The "everywhere" punch system by Fiskars.
• Tiny jars of Beadazzles, a fun and glitzy product.
• Stickers by every company imaginable in every topic and theme imaginable...
• And so much more!
