**Grand Opening is Wednesday, December 1st!**
Come join us for a FREE DAY of cropping and being the first to see The Studio's "maiden voyage!"

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!  As we head into the Holiday season and all its craziness, we must take some time for ourselves and stop to De-Stress, Unwind, and stay connected with our passions and fellow scrapbooking friends!

With that, I wanted to review the December Calendar of Classes & Events at The Studio in hopes you will find that special "ME-TIME" that's so important for us to proceed thru these Holidays!

First, the Sunday Afternoon Open Crops:  Come and spend the whole afternoon at The Studio scrapbooking or making those Christmas Cards or handmade gifts!  Take your leisurely time working on your projects!  The Crop Fee includes full use of the Crop Room Tools & Coffee Bar!

Next, what better "party" could there be and you don't even have to bring a gift!  The December 11th Midnight Jammie Crop Party is JUST the party you need to have fun,unwind and work on your projects! Bring a friend and meet new people!  There will be free coffee and snacks and crop fee includes full use of the Crop Room Tools and Supplies!

The Wednesday Lunch Box Crops:  Need an hour lunch break away from the office?  Have a layout you're working on? Bring a sandwich, grab a burger or taco and come work on your projects!  No Class Fee!  Free hour of scrapbooking bliss away from the rat-race workplace!

Scrapbook Design & You Classes:  Every Tuesday in December, starting 12/7, come and learn all the basics of scrapbooking and overcome those fears and intimidation of Scrapbooking!  See just how easy and rewarding it really is!  This your ME-TIME, your Christmas Gift to Yourself...take advantage!  Class Fee includes ALL FOUR CLASSES! And don't forget the Graduation Ceremony at the end!

Finally, we are so lucky to have Heather Halstead teaching Storybook Creator Plus on Dec 10th and Krista from Krista Mae Photography teaching Intro to Photography & Your Digital Camera

11/3/10 Scrapbook Gift Baskets at The Scrapbook Studio & Cafe!

Good Morning to you all!  It's a beautiful crisp morning in Ohio and every day I get more and more excited to getting closer to opening The Scrapbook Studio!

Today's Blog topic is....

** Scrapbooking Gift Baskets! **

Something unique that I am excited to offer at The Studio is Scrapbook Gift Baskets!  For that special someone who loves to scrapbook, stamp, make cards or handmade gifts, we will put together a BEAUTIFULLY assembled and decorated gift basket!

You can pick out all of the items yourself, or have my staff or me do it for you! 

There is no charge for the assembly of the basket, just a small fee for the materials & basket used, but we make it beautiful for you...for free!  Or bring in your "basket or other container" and we'll STILL assemble it for you!

This is a great gift idea for those husbands, boyfriends or significant others who need just a little "nudge" in getting that PERFECT gift for their scrapbooker!

The Holidays are quickly approaching! 
Let The Scrapbook Studio help make those gift-giving challenges a LOT easier!
