World Cardmaking Day: Saturday, October 5

The first Saturday in October always means a special activity. Scrapbook Generation will be joining other scrapbook stores across the county in celebrating World Cardmaking Day, the kick-off to the cardmaking season that is Christmas.

As we approach the busiest time in the year for most dedicated cardmakers, we hope you can find a few minutes to drop by SG this Saturday, Oct. 5 from 11am-4pm to make three FREE cards (and maybe munch on a piece or two of chocolate)!

Lindsey Amschler will be showing you how to use blending pens to color a stamped image on one of her cards. If you've always wanted to try this technique, now's the time. And we have a full selection of three-pack already-matched-for-you blending pens by American Crafts that won't break the bank like some brands!

On Lindsey's second card, you'll try out the new Tim Holtz Distress Glitter! It's like no glitter you've used before, and the number of colors available is phenomenal.

For the third card, I'll be showing you a cute way to make a beautiful Christmas tree out of strips and scraps. It's a technique I've used before and really love, because the end result is so much more than the small pieces you start with, and requires no extra tools or products! (And for our online friends, I'll post a tutorial here so that you can join us and make this card from materials you have on hand at home.)

You're all invited! To help us know how many to prepare for, please call us at 417-886-0440 or email, then just show up on Saturday any time from 11am until 4 pm.
