November 2009 Newsletter

Hi Everyone! Can it really be November already? Its amazing how quickly time is flying by. Now that the holidays are among us, its time to start all those holiday projects if you haven't done so already. If you haven't, check out our class schedule this month. We have some classes planned that will definitely inspire you to get started on those Christmas presents!

Before we get into the classes for this month, we have a bit of announcements to make:

Craft Nights at Island Scrapbooking
Beginning this Friday, 11/6/09, we will be hosting Craft Nights at Island Scrapbooking. Every first Friday of the month one of the Design Team members will host Craft Night which will include either a demo, product info or a make 'n take. We thought it would be fun for everyone to get together in an informal setting to learn more about how to use different products or do a fun make 'n take. Our first Craft Night will be hosted by Jenny and the topic will be Copics 101. This discussion will provide a very basic introduction to Copic Markers. We thought this would be a good topic since so many of our customers ask so many questions about this awesome tool. Please note that this will not be a blending class. If there is enough interest, we may do another Copics session at a later date.
Crafts Nights will be held after work on the first Friday of every month starting at 5:00pm till ~ 6:30pm. Its a great chance to do some after hours shopping too! Right now, anyone can stop by to attend, but if space becomes an issue, we may require you to sign up in advance for future Craft Nights.

In addition to information provided, we will also be hosting a Card Drawing. Similar to a "one card swap", participants can bring in a handmade card, which will be numbered. After all entries are in, all participants will pull numbers and whatever number you pull will be the card you go home with! We thought this would be fun way to exchange cards without all the headache of creating a ton of cards! Please note- you DO NOT have to participate in the Card Drawing in order to attend the Craft Night, we just thought this would be a fun new thing to add for our customers. The more people that participate, the more fun it will be, so hope you join in the fun!
