Holy Scrap! There's a lot going on at Remember When...

Greetings fellow scrap-lings. It's hard to believe another Friday is upon us. It's a bit rainy here in SoCal and considering the weather in the rest of the country, I am happy to be here! :) I've got exciting news for all of you; our Design Team lead, Stephanie Dade, has chosen her first Design Team! If you applied and haven't heard back yet, you will be hearing very shortly. These designers are going to fill our favorite place with tons of creative ideas; it is very exciting for us.

I am looking forward to croppin' tonight and working on samples for the new Basic Grey Page of the Month class that starts in March. I'll be posting samples in the store next week. If you are considering doing this monthly club, we have now opened a second date! It will be the third Wednesday of the month or the fourth Saturday of the month. You can pick and choose each month which one that you want to go to, which allows a little more flexibility in this hectic world we live in. At only $15/month for approximately $20+ of brand new gorgeous Basic Grey, it is an excellent value! I've only got a handful of spots left, so call (or better yet,come in a say hello!) before the spots are gone as we cannot add on any more spots.

Follow Us on Our Blog
Become a follower on our blog (we update our blog more than we email because I don't want to totally junk up your box!) :). If you do between now and March 7th, you might be the lucky winner of a Cosmo Cricket Paper Pack!

Earn Quickbuckz!
From now through March 6, 2010, for every $20 that you spend in Quickcutz, you will receive one $10 Quickbuckz. Then, you can redeem these $10 Quickbuckz by purchasing $20 of Quickutz between March 13 - March 19th, 2010. This is a GREAT way to stock up on alphabets and some of the cute newer dies that I carry. All Quickutz purchases must be on non-sale merchandise. Any Quickbuckz not redeemed by the expiration date will not be honored.

What's New This Week:
- Webster's Pages Garden Gala

New Products & Upcoming Classes...

New this week...
In the past week, we have received over 60 boxes overflowing with absolutely gorgeous stuff. We've also gone gangbusters reorganizing the store. I haven't had time to go through it all, but luckily, between Emma, JP & Patty, they have gotten everything out and ready for you to come and enjoy. My favorite so far is definitely the PRIMA! It's absolutely LUSH and beautiful. And speaking of LUSH, the new line from My Minds Eye has everyone in awe. You are welcome to come in and pet the gorgeous flocking on these papers.

Here are some highlights of what's new:

- PRIMA flowers, bling, four new paper lines
- Cosmo Cricket Early Morning and Material Girl
- Anthology by Studio Calico (brand new company!)
- Nested Punches galore!
- Two new teenage boy lines
- May Arts ribbons (to die for if you are a ribbon girl like me!)
- Professions (Doctor/Nurse/Firefighter/Policeman/Military)
- Motocross/ATV paper and embellishments
- Smooch Ink and Smooch Spray in all the new colors!
- All the new (and existing!) colors of Tim Holtz's favorite Distress Crackle Paint, Distress Stickles, Distress Inks, Distress Embossing Powders, and more!
- A huge selection of gorgeous journaling and accent pens
- Trust me, a lot, lot, lot more. :) And still more coming. Emma is wondering where we will put it! I feel confident she will find a place, right??

Quick update...

Good Morning! Yes, it really is 2:30 in the morning when I am writing this. You see, my husband (Adam) and I just spent the last *several* hours relaying out much of the store to make room for the new product that is coming in during the next few months. Needless to say, my dogs are barking. And by dogs, I don't mean my dogs (Jake & Elvis), I mean my feet! And by barking I mean hurting! I purchased over 53 new lines at CHA and I can't wait to share them with you! Our first product arrived today... with more coming later this week.

I just want to send a quick reminder to check out our great classes. We have a popular card class with Laura Baybridge that meets every month (and it meets this Wednesday!) as well as a technique Class with Liz Mullen. If you have never met Liz, she is wonderful ; you will definitely have a fun time. FInally, if you are considering the Basic Grey Official Page of the Month class, sign up before it is too late! I just added 12 more spots in the class, so sign up while there are still spots! We are goin to add a second class date on the 4th Saturday of the Month beginning at 9:30 a.m. As a club member, you can go to either the Wednesday class or the Saturday class. Read more about this club here:

New & Back in Stock this Week:
- Teresa Collins : Chic BeBe Boy & Chic BeBe Girl, Welcome Home and Mr & Mrs. These lines are gorgeous and versatile with Teresa's simple touch. The Chic BeBe Boy is done in Tiffany Blue (to die for!) and both of the baby lines feature an animal print (again to die for!). All of the lines have Teresa's awesome chipboard album covers to coordinate and make your own altered album. Promise me you will look on both sides of this paper when you are browsing because each side on these is special! I've attached a photo below of some projects made from Chic BeBe Girl and Chic BeBe Boy. GORGEOUS!

- Ranger, Ranger, Ranger! Looking for more Distress Ink Colors? Wanting all of the latest Tim Holtz products? While some of it is not available until later this year, we've got all of the products from Ranger arriving on FRIDAY! Just in time for the weekend fun.

- Sparkle Pens and White Pens : If you have hung out in the store at all (and if you haven't, we welcome you!), you have probably seen me going crazy made about the new glitter pen I just discovered and about my favorite white pen. They were sold out for a little bit, but we have them back in stock, so come in and grab yours!

- New Military, EMT, Firefigher papers and more
