Small Business Day Saturday!

We Value Your Business!

Happy Small Business Saturday!

Today is the day when we should escape the craziness of the big chain stores and support the small businesses in our area.

We absolutely love this quote taken from a USA Today article (read the entire article here):

Your community wins: For every $100 spent at a local store, $68 stays in your community (according to research firm Civic Economics). That compares with only $43 when you shop at a chain store. Your town gets healthier - and that means the value of your home, the quality of your schools, the response rate of your fire department - all benefit when you shop at a small, local store.

In honor of Small Business Saturday, we're keeping our Black Friday specials (including Silhouettes for $199.99) going all day long.

On behalf of all the small businesses in our community, THANKS for supporting us. You really do make a difference!!!

General Manager

What Can You Do With a Zebra Stripe?

So I (Karen H) came into Scrapdoodles for my Design Team Inspiration materials and they pointed me to the Making Memoires Paper Reverie zebra stripe paper. Zebra Stripes? Hmmmmm. I'm not usually a zebra stripe kind of girl, but the black shimmer and glittery goodness grabbed me. So, I brought home that sheet of paper and several more from the Paper Reveries line along with one package of embellishments and a pack of silver glitter letters to create a couple of layouts and a quick gift idea. I cut apart the zebra stripes to create a border for this layout of some of last year's snowy photos. I used several of the embellishements and circles punched from the paper sheets with the silver letters for a title to create a very wintery feel. I don't see zebra stripes anywhere! I think the grey colors of this line can also be combined with silver elements or even al ittle red and green to get a whole new beautiful look for your holiday and winter season photos. Check them out!
I also cut some of the striped paper to give these plain candles a bit of pizzazz. The large paper "snowflake" on each candle isn't a snowflake at all. It is part of the paper design, but I thought they looked like snowflakes so I cut them out of the 12x12 sheet and used them the way I wanted.
My last layout for you this month is also from the Paper Reverie line, but the brown collection. You need to check out these papers on your next visit to Scrapdoodles - ask the girls where to find it before it's all gone! It's hard to tell in the picture, but the large die cut paper is glittered, so there's a nice shimmer to it. I also added a bit of glimmer mist to the embellishments, playing on the sunlight on my girl's hair in the photo. The medallion, or accordion circle, is easy to make and adds a bit of dimension to the layout. There's a bit of lace border (Little Yellow Bicycle) and some cuts from my Cricut added to the layers for a easy and beautiful layout.

I hope you check out this line of papers from Paper Reverie and get creative. Even better, pick up the zebra stripe and show us what you can do with it. Upload a picture of your layout or project on to our facebook page and show us what you can do with a black and shimmery zebra stripe! Can't wait to see!

Design Team

Hello Everyone! It's that time again...more ideas to share with you! I really enjoyed scrapbooking using the My Mind's Eye Blackbird and Alphabet Soup collections. The variety of patterned papers and accents make it so easy to create layouts with pizzazz and flair!

I used the Blackbird collection to create both a layout and chipboard album. If you are like me and love Halloween, this collection is amazing!

Here I used black ink on the edges of the chipboard accents to give it a different feel.

Adding gems to the "o's" in spooky also created dimension and sparkle.

To see the entire chipboard album, stop by Scrapdoodles and ask to browse the pages created using the Blackbird collection! I had so much fun making this album and chose to wait to add photos so you could see each page in its entirety.

The Blackbird patterned papers and accents were also perfect for these photos of my kids in their Halloween shirts a couple years ago. They definitely are "Our Little Pumpkins" and these designs showcase that perfectly.

I used the Alphabet Soup line to scrapbook my daughter again. Her skin tones and clothing went so beautifully with the papers and accents from this collection.

I love this picture of my little Baylee girl. The colors and chipboard accents help to capture the innocence and beauty of her face.
I added a little extra sparkle to the chipboard accents and title by using glitter. I also added a brad to the center of the blue flower to add dimension.

I hope you enjoy these layouts and will find inspiration from my ideas! I look forward to posting more of my work and Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

Upcoming Class- So Thankful

Take a break from the holiday hustle bustle to remember (and scrap a two-page layout) what you are thankful for as 2010 comes to an end. In just one evening, you can complete the layout. You’ll use the fabulous Basic Grey Pyrus to create a beautiful layout in fall colors. You have lots of options of what to display using this layout including brads and chipboard accents. It is perfect for Thanksgiving photos and with space for six photos you have space to show family, food and d├ęcor. Another option is to show six different things you are thankful for like family, health and faith or six family members. I was very thankful this year for my family that accompanied me to a big professional event and so my layout displays pictures of that event.

The class fee includes everything that you need to complete the project. And much more. You’ll have enough left over to create an additional layout. I’ll share instructions for the additional layout I created. You’ll need your basic tool kit. Bring your pictures or add later.

Date: Wednesday, December 8 @ 6:30pm

Fee: $25

Have you started thinking about Christmas presents yet? Well, if you haven't... I'm here to help. With a few supplies and a little time, you are on the way to some fabulous gifts. Here are two I've made recently. Each is mounted on an 8x8 canvas panel and features the TENSeconds Studio Christmas mold.

The first called Home for the Holidays, uses the snowflake pattern embossed onto a piece of periwinkle metal. I adhered it to the canvas and added some strips of the Tim Holtz tissue tape to the bottom of the canvas. Then I painted the whole thing white and buffed off some of the paint to give it an antiqued look. I used some cotton snow to soften the line, added the house and its done.

Poinsettia, the second project features the flower from the same mold, this time embossed on a piece of silver aluminum. The color has been added using Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam (love that stuff) and accented with some bling. I added some more metal and mounted it onto the canvas and you have another quick and very cool gift.

I hope this inspires you to get started metalizing the world, one project(or gift) at a time.

Thankful Lollipop Flowers

I love decorating for fall and created these fun flowers to add to my Thanksgiving buffet.

I love the look of all the different patterns together and used many of my favorite companies to create this look. I also die cut some leaves and created some handmade flowers out of felt, fabric and paper to add lots of different textures.
If you'd like to get a closer look, this is on display at the store until just before Thanksgiving.

What kinds of decorations have you made for the upcoming holidays?

Two beautiful new collections from BasicGrey. The long anticipated Curio and Marjolaine.

TenSecond Studio Class with Lisa Patterson!

In this class I will show the method of creating a wonderful metalized patchwork pennant. Each student will have a choice of 3-4 of the metal colors they would like to use for the project. It can be made like the sample in the store, but imagine how cool it would look using the newest Christmas mold in red, green and gold. The cost is $40 including all materials to complete the project. Please bring your basic tool kit and if you have your own Ten Seconds Metal tools...bring them along too. Just be sure they are labeled with your name. ~Lisa
