I own Papercraft Clubhouse, the largest mixed media, stamping, die-cutting and scrapbooking store in Connecticut. These are my musings on art journaling, scrapping, stamping, owning my own business and life in general.
It's that time of year again! Join us for a tour of four amazing scrapbooking stores.
Treat yourself to a day of demos, giveaways, discounted shopping and more on Sunday, October 3. At each store you will receive a gift, see demonstrations and enjoy a meal or a snack. Plus--you'll get 20% off all your regularly priced merchandise. Along the way you will earn raffle tickets for the grand prize. The price for the entire day, including transportation, breakfast and lunch, gifts, and BIG FUN, is only $65.
Now here's the important part: registration for the bus tour starts this Saturday, August 28th at 10 am. All you have to do to register is stop by or call your home store (the store you want to leave from and return to). Your fee is payable when you register and cannot be refunded unless we can fill your seat with someone from the waiting list. If you plan to attend with friends, we suggest one person registers all of you. If the lines are busy or you get our voicemail when you call, please just try again, we'll be moving through the calls quickly. A voicemail will not hold your spot - you must talk to a real person. Call 860-399-4443 starting at 10 am Saturday, August 28th to register.
The last Papercraft Clubhouse bus tour sold out in 90 minutes! Please call right at 10am if you would like to join us.
Participating Stores: The Inspiration Station, Stafford Springs New England Scrapbook Company, Canton Papercraft Clubhouse, Westbrook Wiggles & Giggles, Wethersfield
Check out this GORGEOUS tree by Kaisercraft. We've got in in three sizes at the store... the smallest about 5 inches tall and the largest about 2 feet! We've also got wreaths, desk sets, and these cool new embellishments (size about 2" to 6" long) seen below.
big, warm and fuzzy "THANK YOU!" to everyone who made Crop for the Cure a
success! I have to name a few ladies in particular:
Our hostess, Kelly M., did an amazing job organizing,
providing wonderful raffle gifts, and generally making it a delightful
occasion. (Making a divine chocolate dessert was also an important contribution - yum!) Thanks to Fran M. for delicious treats and beautiful
name tags. Jean M. designed a lovely layout for everyone to take home
with them. Thanks to my staff, who provided items for the Silent Auction, name tag
assistance and chocolate, all on their own time - you gals are awesome! And to our croppers - a HUGE thank you for participating, for providing silent auction items and goodies and most of all for giving your time and dollars to help find a cure.
We raised $1100! Woo Hoo!!! Kelly will be presenting the money to the American Cancer Society at the
Relay for Life next month.
We're Cropping for a Cure here at the Clubhouse! We've also got silent auction items to bid on for today only. Bidding is open until 9pm, so stop by and put in a bid on wonderful gift baskets, jewelry, free crops and scrapbook supplies!
All proceeds from the Silent Auction will go to the American Cancer Society.
We just love Cosmo Cricket. We've just received the ENTIRE lines of Togetherness, with a family theme; Pixie-Licious, which is a girl and fairy theme; and Mitten Weather, a winter and Christmas theme. Here's a photo of the mini decks.
It is, as always, more captivating in person than on my blog. Trust me, you want to see it!
I love Halloween papers, embellishments, stamps, stickers... you name it! We've already received Halloween in Wonderland. Today our second Halloween line arrived - BooVille by Little Yellow Bicycle! It's fabulous! Come on in and check it out!
