New Piggy Tales Collection

Piggy Tales has a delightful line in the store called "5 Little Ducks Collection." It really is suitable for more than baby-themed projects. This layout was created with 3 of the double-sided cardstock papers. I also used a Hero Arts rubber stamp to create the flourish embellishment. (I always forget that rubber stamps can be used for more than cards.) Unfortunately this photo does not emphasize the details; parts of the flourish are decorated with Basic Grey bling.

The note card below was created from 1/2 sheet of this collection. It could be used as a note card, kid's birthday card, or party invitation. Select strips were cut out from the paper and arranged on the front of a plain white card. Another strip was glued to the inside of the card. Very fast and easy project!

Christmas Gift Idea

Is it time to start hinting to your family what you'd like for Christmas? Scrapbook Haus offers gift cards so you can pick out your own gift (solves the problem of receiving stuff you already own).

Another option is a Scrapbook Haus Crop Time Key Tag. The cost is $60 and it is valid for 365 days from the date of purchase. The key tag entitles you to free access to the crop room and die cuts (provided there is not a class scheduled), three free crop nights, $15 class tuition money, and 15% discount on purchases made on your birthday. So you can truly enjoy your gift all year long!

AND just for our Blog visitors: Until Dec 24, you can purchase a key tag for a special price of $45. Just mention you want the Blogger special at checkout.

Even Bigger Weekend Ahead!

Just when I thought I had a busy weekend ahead, I received even bigger news. Liz (with Debbie Gunion) will be at Scrapbook Haus on Sunday, Dec 13 from 1-3 PM conducting a FREE Make n' Take featuring "Tattered Angels" products. This will be her third visit to Scrapbook Haus and she brings fabulous project ideas everytime. You won't want to miss her presentation. (I wonder if Susan has sleeping bags so we can just camp out in the crop room for the weekend. Read below for details on how we're ringing in the New Year Saturday night.)

Big Events this Saturday

It may be cold outside but it's going to be hot, hot, hot Saturday, December 12 at Scrapbook Haus. The day is packed with fun events to make you smile whether you are an expert crafter or a novice.

From 1-5 PM, two different Make 'n Takes will be offered in the store. JimmyeSue of Texana Designs/Jam'n Stamps fame will be helping guests create a Christmas bookmark. You know how cute her artwork is so you won't want to miss it. Plus as a participant, you'll be entered in a drawing to win a fabulous prize. Additionally, I will be helping guests create a "Cozy Winter" treat. And the best part... both these events are totally FREE! If you're looking for inexpensive ideas for teacher gifts, this is the place to be. Both projects will be offered continuously throughout the afternoon so stop by anytime to join in the fun.

That evening 6 pm to midnight will be the last crop for 2009. Yes, it's kinda like New Year's Eve in Scrapbook land. The cost is only $7 for six hours of creative fun. Bring a friend along to celebrate the season and ring out 2009. Just call the store to reserve a seat. We look forward to seeing you Saturday!
