Pocket Pages Made Easy Workshop!!

Pocket page scrapbooking has become very popular over the past couple of years! Almost every manufacturer has some version of this in their line-up of products. I am sure you even have some in your stash. The questions is, are you using it?

If you are stumped by this new form of scrapbooking, then this is the class for you! I will walk you through how these amazing photo sleeves can transform the way you scrapbook. This does not mean that you won't continue to do your traditional pages, it only means that I will introduce you to different concepts that will enhance your albums and provide you with endless options!!

I will share lots of tips and tricks that will help you put pages together with ease. You will learn how to transition from pocket pages to traditional pages throughout your albums.

Your workshop will include 3 different configurations of photo sleeves and all the materials required for you to complete 3 pages for your album. Plus, you will also have the opportunity to print a photo of your choice in a 12x12 print!!! This will make quite a statement in your album.

We have already run 2 sold out classes. Sign up today to ensure a spot in this workshop!

  • Wednesday, September 16th - 6pm - 8:30pm 
  • $25.00 
  • Please bring your basic scrapbooking supplies including brown ink/applicator and pop dots. 
  • Bring 10-12 photos that will work with a summer theme (I did a summer trip) as well a one photo on a memory stick that you would like to enlarge. It is helpful if you can bring at least 2 horizontal and 2 vertical photos, but if you don't have them available, we can work around it.
You can visit our store and register in person, or you can click here to register online!!!

Fall Retreat - Final Payment Due!!!

Our Fall Retreat weekend is fast approaching!! We only have a handfull of spots left, but it is not too late to get your group together and sign up for this amazing experience.

Our Fall 2015 Scrapbooking Retreat Weekend will once again be held at the Oakwood Resort and Spa in Grand Bend, Ontario! The dates are October 23 - 25, 2015, and we are now taking registrations. Our weekend will run from 12:00 noon on Friday until 3:00 pm on Sunday.

The Oakwood Inn has proven to be the perfect spot for our weekend retreats! They have a fabulous venue with a large, bright space for our cropping and on-site store set-up, deluxe rooms that include pillow top beds, plasma TVs, fireplace and mini fridge, and a Spa, Sauna, Indoor Pool, Hot Tub and Fitness Center for those that like to indulge. Plus, the sandy shores of beautiful Lake Huron are only a 5-minute walk away!

All the meals are buffet style served in a separate dining room and prepared to perfection!

For our Fall Retreat we will have two large rooms for cropping. You may request the main level room or the lower level room, as long as space is still available. Our on-site store will be located on the lower level, so if you prefer to be on the same level as the store, choose the lower level.

If you crop in the main level room, you will have room hostesses that will insure you are well looked after. Please specify which crop room you would like to be in when you register.

If you have already signed up for our Fall Retreat weekend, this is a friendly reminder that your final payment is due on September 1st (that is today)!!!

We have set up all the final payment options on our online store. You can easily and conveniently make your final payment by clicking the cart below. Be sure to choose the appropriate payment, depending on the accomodation requests you have made. You can confirm your roommates and cropping groups by typing them in the comments section upon checkout!! Also, be sure to select the 'in store pick up' option when checking out, so that you are not charged a postage fee!!.

You can also visit our store in person, by September 1st, to make your final payment. We would love to see you :)

If you are just registering yourself or your group, you are required to make the full payment (as of September 1st). Be sure to select the appropriate payment, depending on your accomodation requests. For further details about registering, please click here!!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

Hello Friends!!  With me being away for a couple of weeks and also being swamped when I returned, we are a little late posting this.  Sorry about the delay!!

If you pre-ordered Cool in the Pool, Hello Sunshine or Slide into Summer, they are all ready for pick up!!  If you missed out, we now have them in the store and up on our online store for you to purchase.

Also, if you ordered the August Calendar kit, it is ready for pick up too!  We did sell out of this awesome page, so it will not be available in our store.  Click here to see all of our available kits!!

Be sure to watch your emails, our blog posts and our Facebook page for all future kits and store updates!!!

Tim Holtz App!!!

I don't know if I am the only one who didn't know this, but I just had to share!!  It has been over a year since Tim Holtz posted this on his blog, but did you know he has an app??

You can link to to his blog, videos, available products, his Pinterest board, FB page and Twitter feed.  One of the best parts, is you can actually track products that you own.  For instance, I have quite a few of the Distress Inks, so I can go under the 'Products' section and put a check beside all the colours that I own, for quick reference!!  It is like having your own catalogue of Tim Holtz supplies, right at your fingertips.
