Fiesta festivities

Life is busy here at the store as we prepare for our FIESTA coming up this Saturday! We're prepping for classes & filling goodie bags while we work to price the new products that keep arriving... so many good things in store!

I just wanted to do a quick post and highlight some happenings on Fiesta day!

FIRST, everyone is invited to participate in our Silent Auction, which will be located in the classroom area of our store on Saturday May 3. Auction items have been donated from several local businesses and some of our fabulous suppliers as well as Fiesta participants (ladies- if you bring in an auction item, you'll get a bonus ticket for our grand prize draw!). All proceeds from our Silent Auction go towards the Canadian Cancer Society, so we encourage everyone to come check it out and make your bids!

SECOND, we're having a card & layout contest and you can bring in your submissions early (by May 1- and you'll get an extra ticket!) or bring them in on the day of the Fiesta (or complete them AT the Fiesta- voting will start at 2pm). Each entry gets you 1 ticket for our Grand Prize Draw (that's 2 tickets if you bring it in by May 2). We'll have two categories within the card/layout categories- Quick & Simple OR Embellished & Enhanced.

THIRD... and not really Fiesta related, Saturday May 3 is more than our Fiesta Day- it's also National Scrapbooking Day! So... even if you're not coming to the Fiesta, it's gonna be worth your while to stop by and enjoy some fabulous savings in the store that day! If you're on our email list, watch for an e-mail with details on the sale coming at the end of the week!

QK Spring Gift Sets

QuicKutz has outdone themselves this year with their Spring Gift Set release! Here's a sneak peek at the actual packaging for these FOUR internationally themed gift sets- don't you love them?

Two include a classic complete alphabet in cookie cutter format, one is a grand unicase cookie cutter alphabet (with a 'shadow' look to it!) and one is a mini complete alphabet on 2x2 dies! Each gift set is just $115. I can't tell you much more than that... but there's sure to be at least one of them that you'll love! These gift sets always sell out quickly, so plan to stop by the store to get yours on Saturday, May 3- what a great way to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day (it'll be even more fun if you're coming to our FIESTA, too)!

Page Maps are here!

I'm so excited... the new PageMaps book has arrived and at first glance I must confess... it's fabulous! Becky Fleck has put together an amazing collection of sketches & samples, and the coolest part is the die cut deck of cards included with the book! You just punch out the cards & their storage box and then you've got all the sketches from the book in a handy, portable format! Sweet! If you haven't checked them out already, the new FREE set of April maps are up now & ready to be printed. There's also a set of new 'mini maps' perfect for 8" & 6" albums... maybe I need to get back to my Disney album and try some of those! Check them out! I think I'd be lost without PageMaps & Sketches... they make scrapbooking so much easier!

Also new in the store *sigh* are eleven new collections of paper by My Minds Eye... they're just wonderful, I'm quite pleased with our choices of papers & coordinating die cuts! The new thing this year is "Wild Letters" to coordinate with several of the sets- a full set of monograms in great patterns for under $4! You're gonna love them!

If you haven't been into the store lately, you'll also want to check out new Cogsmo products by Cosmo Cricket (adorable robots & stuff!), new Basic Grey & new Fancy Pants! April QuicKutz products were released yesterday- we've got the Canada 2" die in stock as well as some of the Cookie Cutter die sets & embossing dies! We've also got the new 12" border dies on special this month... the platform will be available at the beginning of May, I can't wait to use these babies!
