Introducing Craft Nights at Island Scrapbooking!

We had so much fun at the 6th Anniversary party, that we thought, why not invite our customers to hang out more often??? We enjoy everyone's company so much that we thought it would be fun to stay open late one night a month where customers can come in, learn something new and enjoy each other's company. Sound like fun?

We hope you plan on joining us for our first Craft Night at Island Scrapbooking beginning on November 6th. We are looking at doing this the first Friday of every month.

Craft Nights will include:
  • Demos
  • Make 'N Takes
  • New Product Info
  • or just plain fun!


A Card "Drawing": Similar to a card "swap" but you only need to bring ONE card! This means you can spend more time and really make your card special. This will be open to anyone who wants to participate, but it is not a requirement to attend- only if you feel like it. Here's how it will work:

  • Bring one handmade card (made by you!)
  • We will then number all the cards submitted by participants.
  • Everyone who participates will draw numbers and you will receive the card with the same number that you picked.
  • You can only re-draw if you picked your own card.

Our first Craft Night will be an informational session on Copic Markers. Since Island Scrapbooking has brought in these awesome markers, they have been flying out of the store, but a lot of our customers have asked us how to use them, so we thought this would be a great topic for our first Craft Night! Your's Truly (Jenny) will be giving some basic information about Copics. Later on, if there's enough interest, I may do another session on blending techniques. (Disclaimer: I am NOT a certified Copics instructor, so I'm just winging it!).

All Craft Nights are free and anyone can attend. We just thought this would be a fun way for our customers to get together, learn something new, and talk story.

To kick things off, Michele will be donating a prize where one random participant will win a variety of Copic products, including a pen case! Estimated value of the prize is $65!! How awesome is that?

So I'm going to resort to begging now... don't make me show up and I'm the only one there! :) hee hee. Seriously, we hope that you can make it to these fun nights!

We are also looking for ideas and would like your feedback on what you would like to see at these Craft Nights. We'll be polling whoever shows up on the first night, but if you can't make it, please let Michele or Tracy know what you'd like to learn about so we can look into it.

(Note: November 6th is Black and White Night in Downtown Hilo. If you are planning on attending our first Craft Night, please keep this in mind as parking may be limited. Island Scrapbooking is not participating in Black and White Night, but we will remain open for our first Craft Night).

So mark your calendars and start working on those cards! Hope to see you there!
