Scrap Happy is excited to present...........................Scrap Happy Essential Dies!

We have been telling you this Summer was going to be awesome and we were not kidding.  Susie has been super busy working hard on designing her very own line of dies!  How exciting is that?  Scrap Happy Essential dies are our exclusive line of high quality American made steel dies. Scrap Happy Essential dies work with most tabletop die cutting machines such as the Revolution, Epic 6, Big Shot, Cuttlebug & others and you can cut felt, cork, acetate, paper and more!  These are amazing, you have to see them for yourself.  Susie already has projects using these dies scattered throughout the store and each one is cuter and sweeter than last!  If you love dies or even if you don't, you will love these and this is only the beginning.  She is STILL busy planning and designing even more gorgeous dies, coming soon.  In the meantime, take a look at these beauties and stop by the store or online to pick up one or ALL 5!!!!

One week left of the Garage Sale!

Our Garage Sale has been a success........but it is NOT OVER!!!!  There is still one week to go and new things keep popping up EVERY DAY!  There is so much to look at, one can go two or three times and still not see everything!.  The sale ends on June 30 so stop in soon!

My first purchase.... :o)

Just wanted to share a little something with all of you. Scrap Happy just had their 5 year anniversary, as you already know......well, when they first opened in New Riegel I went over to check out the new scrapbook store. Of course I bought a few things....some My Mind's Eye cardstock, a die cut "B" and a punch. Well, I still have that punch and I have never forgotten where I got it or how nice Susie was when I was at her new store. She is still just as nice when anyone walks through her door, too! Her store was soooo new, neither of them knew how to load the pricing gun (tee hee).....I happened to know how and showed her.....and we still help each other out to this day :o). Now to share a picture with is a part of my first purchase from Scrap Happy EVER......(and, yes, this just scratched the surface to what I have bought from her to date, but we won't talk about that!! haha)
Happy Stamping!!

We have some exciting news to share with all of you.  Scrap Happy is SO pleased  & excited to tell you we will be participating in the Operation Write Home project.  If you are unfamiliar with Operation Write Home, it is an organization that collects handmade cards from around the country and sends them in care packages to the troops overseas.  They can be cards to the troops or blank cards for the troops to send home to their loved ones.  Either is more than welcome.

To help you get started, Scrap Happy will be hosting a FREE card class on Sunday, June 19th @ 6pm.  This will be taught by Susie and all the cards you make will be donated to the troops.  Then, the following Sunday, June 26th, you can come into the store anytime from 12-6 to make your own cards to donate.  Both of these are free, however, we would appreciate if you would still sign up, either online or at the store, so we can keep track of supplies, etc.

If you can't make it to either event, we will still be an official "drop zone" for any and all cards donated by you, up until July 2nd.  That is the deadline as we have to ship these out by the Fourth of July!  

If you want to donate your handmade creations, please note there are some simple guidelines to follow when making your cards.  These are for the safety and ease of handling of the troops, so please take a look by clicking the "guideline" link above.   They are in need of Birthday, Thank You, Missing You, Thinking of You and generic & Blank cards.   Especially blank cards so they can write to their loved ones.  Also, please include masculine colors and themes, as well.

As if this fabulous organization wasn't enough, IF, and ONLY IF, Scrap Happy donates the most cards during this time YOU the kind, creative, generous person YOU are will be eligible for a chance to win a FREE Cruise 'n Crop on Royal Caribbean, thanks to one of our favorite scrappy companies, We R Memory Keepers!  Can you imagine?  Not only could you be cruising along in paradise, but scrapping at the same time!!   It is almost too much for me bear, I think I am going to faint!...............................................Okay, I have recovered................................................

For more information please check out the Operation Write Home website and we really hope to see you at one of our events to donate to this worthwhile organization!

She will be doing two classes that day, both held @ Scrap Happy, the first, Funsy will be from 10am-1230pm and then the Artsy will be held at 130pm-4pm.  There IS limited space available so it would behoove of you to sign up SOON!! You can sign up and get all the info by clicking on the class names above, or if you are interested in BOTH, click here.  There, you will also find all the supply information.  There is an extensive list of supplies NEEDED and some that are suggested.  If you find yourself short of any of these, Susie always has them for you at the store, so never fear!  I will be there, I hope to see you, too!
