TGIF - Happy Friday Sept 24th!!

Good late-morning everyone!  Had a great time "mixing" it up at the Regional Chamber Business Showcase Mixer last night!  Promoted The Scrapbook Studio and got some great ideas for our Grand Opening Promotional Giveaways!  So, be sure attend the Grand Opening (date to be determined) and get your goodies!

Today's topic for The Studio is "Classes & Services!"  The Studio isn't just a retail store!  It's a "hub" for socializing, learning, bonding, scrapbooking and fulfilling all of the scrapbook and paper-crafting goals you've been striving to attain!

One of the things that makes The Studio so special is even if you're not scrapbooker (gasp!) we will completely and beautifully put together a scrapbook for you!  It's our "Scrapbooker-For-Hire" program and our non-crafty customers can give us their photos (duplicates of course! NEVER the originals!) and we will develop a comprehensive, beautiful, themed (if they so choose) scrapbook!  What a great gift this would be for our parents, children, brides, graduates, anniversaries!  And don't forget our Gift Registry that falls in line with all of these special events!

How about a Memory Book for a loved one who's passed away?  We can, with little turnaround time, even develop a memory book or photo board for a Funeral.  This is our way of helping families handle all of the many tasks to be done when a loved one passes - we take care of displaying those photos and memories!

Trade-In-Days - okay, we've all got tools, supplies and "stuff" that we no longer use, right?  Well, each  month we'll have trade in days where you bring us your old "stuff," but it still has to be functional, and we'll give you a coupon towards ANY purchase in the store!  All of the tools and supplies traded in will be donated to local charities, schools or shelters.

Classes:  So many classes, so little time!  HA HA!  Here is just a sampling of the classes to be scheduled at The Studio.  Remember, I'm open for ideas so if you have a fantastic idea for a class, let me know!  And if you happen to be quite the expert on something, I would love to have you as an instructor!

  • Scrapbook Design & You University Classes (EK Success certified!)
  • Photography Classes
  • Cricut classes
  • Digital Scrapbooking Classes
  • Genealogy Classes
  • Card-Making Stamp A Stacks
  • Techniques Classes (such as chalking, stamping, embossing, etc.)
  • And many more to come!
Midnight Crops and Pajama Lockdown Parties:  Yep - bring your jammies and we'll "crop the night away!"  We'll lock the doors, jam to some tunes (could be Disco, could be Country, could be 80's...there's ALWAYS A THEME!)  and have fun as we work on scrapbooks and projects!  There will be games, prizes and SURPRISES!

Weekend Retreats - starting in 2011, we'll put together a series of Entire Weekend Event of Scrapbooking!  We'll reserve blocks of rooms at area hotels, make arrangements for catering and you can spend the entire weekend away from kids and hubbies to re-group and re-connect with new friends and old friends!  Again, there will be games, prizes and SURPRISES!  More info to come on this! 

Okay, that's enough for one day!  Next time, I will focus on our Club Membership Program and all the cool things you get by being a club member!

Have a great weekend everyone!
Angela V.
