So what's been going on at the store you ask? Well, American Crafts has arrived!!!It is Hot, Hot, Hot!!!! Reminisce is in too. They have the cutest little squirrels and deer you ever did see. Impression Obsession, Hero Arts and Hanna Stamps are all in and ready to help you get a start on your christmas cards or even catch up on last years christmas pictures. So much more is on it's way. I need room!! That's why we have the sale happening for a second weekend in a row.
Speaking of the sale, today during our rush, 3 gentlemen dressed in suits and ties, on their way to a wedding reception, stopped in to have a look around. "How can we help you?" , we asked. "we are on our way to a wedding and we need a card, and we'd like to make it ourselves" they said. So in exchange for a little adhesive we got permission to take pictures and put them on the blog. So here you go..... proof positive that men can and do scrapbook. Remember you heard (and seen) it here first!!

SEI has arrived and it is on the shelves and looks beautiful!!!! We received Core'dinations cardstock too but we haven't put it on the shelves yet. Hero Arts stamps have also arrived. Some really nice christmas stamps, and they have even made some french stamps. Ask any one of us to point these out to you.American Crafts is still due in tomorrow but it will take a day or so to get it out. Graphic 45 is on it's way!! So are the new Bazzill Just the Edge strips, Queen and company felt and Jewels, Marvy Punches, Reminisce, and the list goes on.......

On another note.....I tried to scrapbook today and I have to tell you that I am just pathetic, I can buy "the stuff", I can sell "the stuff", I can show people what to do with "the stuff", I can even make page suggestions on where to place"the stuff", but I can't use "the stuff"!!!! How frustrating. I just didn't even know where to start. I just stared at my adorable pictures and didn't know what to do with them.

Please send all your inspiration vibes my way?

I hope that everyone got our sale e-mail. Everything will be 20% off.
Clearance becomes 50%. There are so many new items in the store, imagine
new items and a sale what was I thinking!!!!!
My Little Shoebox looks soooo good, especially the where all the bright colored alphas are hanging. Then there is the Best Creations paper. As usual people are loving them.
Also we got our display of letters in acrylic and chipboard, you can now create any word album you'd like. It's a great concept.
We also got a whole new batch of $1.95 glitter glue, clear stamps, Inks and chalks in Halloween, Christmas and Everyday styles. The everyday stamps are my favorites.
Tons of items were put into the clearance section this week. It's definitely worth having a look.
Well long three days coming up so I should try and get my rest.

another beautiful day, wow we are finally getting summer. We also finally got to open all the mountains od boxes from the back. We have albums again!!! We also just received some of our favorite Prima Say it in Crystals, 6 new Kaiser Craft Lines,re-stock of Doodlebug, Karen Foster themed stickers and paper, etc..... We got about 8-10 styles of Martha Stewart punches, people (including staff) are just loving them. Get them before they are all gone!

So I got to "organize" today thanks to a staff member who shall remain nameless as she knows who she is. What a stickler she is, I spent half the day avoiding her. Gotta love her though cause she does know how to get the job done!!

Expecting lots more "stuff" this week. My Little Shoebox, Best Creations and let's not forget.......Bo Bunny!!
Time to sleep!

Well it's official!! Suzy West from My Little Shoebox will be coming to Scrapbook Centrale to teach classes, have demo/make n' takes and join a Friday night crop. I took a class with Suzy at CHA summer and boy is she a lot of fun. If you visit you can see the wonderful products we will be working with for those classes and I hear she will also have some great giveaways! She is really very inspiring. I hope that you get a chance to take at least one of her classes while she's here, you won't be sorry.

Well boxes have been arriving daily. We have received Polar Expressions Line by imaginisce, this line is so cute and as usual their small acrylic stamps are just adorable. They have a little bundled up polar bear that is just the sweetest thing.
Glimmer Mist is back in stock in MANY colors.
My Little Yellow Bicycle's Autumn Bliss line is not to be missed. The shaped and die cut papers are spectacular.The colors are so beautiful.
Today we got a large selection of clear scraps chipboard and acrylic albums. Both are great for gifts of any kind. If you haven't worked with an acrylic album yet, come give one a try, it is a great way to challenge yourself.
If you like Peel Off stickers then you should have a look at Hot of the Press Dazzles stickers.
The new designs are so nice. They have stacked ones as well (like 3D peel off's)
Next time you are at the store take a minute to look at the beautiful card samples loaned to us by some of our talented customers. Thanks to Josee and Nathalie. what they have done with Bella stamps, Sarah Kay, Copic markers and spellbinders is not to be believed and definitely not to be missed!
