Jen Starr at Not Just Scrap - January 15

Just got off the phone with Jen Starr.  She is coming to Not Just Scrap for a full day of Classes on January 15, 2011.  Her classes are amazing!!!  Opportunities like this do not come often.  Limit 12 per class.

Her first class is from 10-1 (3 hour workshop).  $45.
Glaze, Glimmer & Glam.
Explore the shimmery world of Tattered Angels in this technique-based workshop.  Using Glimmer Mist and the new Glimmer Glam and Glimmer Glaze we’ll work on a variety of surfaces such as paper, acrylic, metal, embossed chipboard and more to achieve fabulous effects for all your crafting projects.  You’ll learn the basics and new fun techniques such as tinted photo transfers, translucent embossing, wax resists, frozen Glam and so much more!! Additional Tattered Angels products covered will be Glimmer Screens and coordinating acrylic stamps, Glimmer Glass, Chip Tiles, Framed Fonts, Chalkboard Mists and some of the new releases from Heidi Swapp.  

The finished project can be used as a technique reference book with written instructions for each technique on the backs of each page OR keep the instructions separate and turn it in to a mini-book!  The possibilities are endless…

Second Class 2-6 (4 hour workshop). $65.
Completely Distressed - Layout Masterclass.
Whether you prefer a vintage style or bright happy colors, Tim Holtz’s Line of Distress products can customize any paper crafting project to the look and color scheme YOU want to achieve. 
In this workshop you will create 6 unique 8x8” layouts focusing heavily on technique…you can follow the color selections I’ve used in my samples or use the same techniques in colors of your choice!  You will learn how to use Tim Holtz Stamps in artful and unusual ways to create beautiful backgrounds, borders, titles, embellishments and even tint photos.  We will use the complete line of Distress Products including inks, re-inkers, crackle paints, stickles, embossing powders with a few of my other favorite goodies mixed in.  The goal of this workshop is to teach you all that this line is capable of beyond just inking the edges! 

Third Class 7-10 (3 hour workshop). $45.
Shabby Chic Mini Book.  Picture and description coming soon!

Holy Snowballs!!!

I know that they are saying 18" but I'll tell you it looks more that 2.5 feet!  It was too high for the snow blower, we had to knock down the snow with a shovel to blow it.  Thank god I have wonderful friends that are my neighbors.  They are always there to help.  I'm blessed to know them and have them in my life.

One of my Mother's very big pine trees came down and landed on her neighbors property.  Thank god it missed the house.  I think it took down the fence and a tree house play gym they had. 

Hope everyone is safe in their homes.  We are all okay here.  Haven't gotten to the store yet, but I'm sure everything is fine there.  We will be open again on Tuesday with the beginning of our End of Year Sale.

Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas are back.

If you love techniques don't miss this. Tim Holtz from Ranger does the 12 Tags of Christmas each year.  This is the 3rd year and he still has wonderful techniques to show off.  He uses all different products to make these amazing tags.  He also gives away tons of stuff to winners who post on his blog. 

Take the journey and join this amazingly creative man.  I've taken many classes with Tim and I can tell you he is truly amazing.  Catch him on his blog at

Computer is back!

For those of you that haven't heard, my main business computer died on Sunday. Of course it is an older computer running the Unix operating system so parts are not available.  Thank God I didn't throw out an old computer still in the store that wasn't being used about the same age. Just last week I asked my sister if I should toss it and she convinced me to hold on to it for a while.  Thank you Sherie.  I'm a tosser, if I haven't used it in two years it is out the window.  Sherie is a keeper.

Of course it had to be the motherboard, which is a computers heart. Yesterday I was like a mad scientist.  I had 2 computers on the tables and all their parts pulled out of them.  I managed to rebuild a computer with mixed guts.  Motherboard from this one, hard drive, cables and network card from that one,  and voila!  All is right in the universe for the time being.:)

New Custom Paper Designs

Here are the latest Custom Paper Designs I've been working on.  You have all loved the first design and wanted to get more text on a page so I designed these.  They work great for large lines of text. I have 2 line, 4 line and 6 line styles in many color combinations.  Some of the information repeats on additional lines.  I am still working on more styles.

On one of the samples I printed the birth information of  my friends new baby.  So her name, birth day and time and weight and height all fit.  On another I printed a Bride & Groom's name with their Wedding Date.  Then on the boldest ones I printed a  local school and team name in the school colors.  I can also print a grid on any cardstock or patterned paper for doing mosaic layouts.

Of course they always look better in person so make sure you stop in to take a look. If you need a larger view just click on a slide and it will bring you to the Album where you can see each one in a larger format.

New In Store

We got in goodies from SEI and Cosmo Cricket. You can see the pictures on the left.

Doris and I went to the opening of the exhibit "Recording Memories; An Historic View", we are sponsoring in Northport. It was amazing to see all the different ways people recorded their memories, from journals to scrapbooks. They have documented the history of writing down memories starting with the ancient Greeks. I tried to take pictures, but since they were through glass I'm not sure they are too good. I'll try to get some together and post them for all to see soon.

New E-Commerce Website

Well the new site has launched.  Of course the hiccups started immediately.  If you sent an email and have not gotten a response or got your email back as undeliverable I apologize.   Please resend them and we will respond as soon as possible.

With the transition from old to new site there were days that things weren't working correctly.  We seem to have all that under control now.  But if you notice anything wrong please let me know asap so I can attend to it.  If you do have problems hit the refresh button on your browser first to make sure you have the latest page version.

With the new site you will be able to buy on-line.  The options for payment are Paypal, which also allows you to use Credit Cards and Call with Payment.  Call with Payment will allow you to call us with your credit card instead of doing it on-line. You will also be able to order on line and pick up in the store.

Right now there are about 500 items up.  I am constantly adding items that are currently in the store to the new site.  As new items come in they will also be added.

I'm will be changing/adding features in the coming weeks.  In the meantime I would love any comments you have on ways we can improve it.  One of the immediate changes will be to make the Class Calendar Option more prominent.  Right now it resides as a link at the top of the class/crop page.

You will also notice a ton on "coming soon" pages that will be available in the very near future.  I should finish cloning myself in a couple of days.

New Site

Well, we've tried to launch the new site 2 times now and we are still delayed.  Hopefully sometime this week we will be able to get it all squared away.

Currently, I have only been able to get about 500 products up.  Each day, numerous times a day, items will be added to the site.  Once the site is launched I'm sure I will be doing modifications to tweak it.
