So much has happened around here the past few weeks. Below is the email I sent out to all my customers. The biggest news is our name change, and with the change is a new blog Our new Blog link is please continue to follow us there, then I can continue to follow you too.
Thanks for understanding and hope to see you at our new blog!

As some of you know we have a dream...our dream is to someday open an online scrapbooking/paper craft store and have a storefront right here in downtown Hobart. Last month we added new classes, more classes, new products, etc. This month we have more exciting news to get us one step closer to achieving our dream. The first big announcement is our name change. As much as we love "Paper Memories" we wanted a unique name that instilled pride for our hometown, and highlighted the creativity in our craft. Someday we will share with you the funny story about how we arrived at this name, but for now we will not keep you waiting and let you know our new name is........brick paper scissors

With the name change we have changed our Yahoo Group, email addresses, and are in the process of changing over our Blog and Facebook Group. So please bear with us if they may not be working properly while we are updating these sites.

Announcement #2...with the completion of our Scrap Studio we are going to have a Grand Opening Open House. The Open House is set for Saturday October 17th, 11:30am – 6:00pm. Stop in to see the Studio, new products, enjoy refreshments, door prizes, and a quick make-n-take. Bring a friend and receive a free gift!

Announcement #3...Another new class, and this one is for the kids!! It is called Kids Club and it will be Saturday mornings from 10:00am - 11:30am. Our first Kids Club is Saturday October 17th –right before the Open House. Everything is provided for the kids, but they are more than welcome to bring their favorite tools. The cost for each child is $12 and packages are available for extra savings: a 4-week session is $44, and if you sign up for an 8-week session, the cost is only $80 ($10 per class) and your child will receive a free 8x8 scrapbook, and you will receive a coupon for a complimentary adult class!

Since this is a new program and we want all the kids to attend, we are offering a half-off special ...yep that's right, only $6 for your first Kids Club class!!

Halloween Treat Bags

Tomorrow night is our Holiday Gift Class. We are creating these cute Halloween Treat Bags!!

If you have a group of 4 or more we can schedule a special class night just for your group and you can pick the project!

No time for class but want these cute treat bags for your child's class? I do custom work and can create any quantity needed!

Scrap Class

Last week we had our Scrap Class in the new Scrap Studio for the first time. All the gals loved it and we had lots of room. Everyone won a door prize of some sort and we learned some new tips and techniques about the Cuttle Bug. We created a card and a LO.
Of course in all the excitement I forgot to take a pic with everyone there, but I did snap a quick shot right before class started.
