New Christmas/Fall Memory Box in store!

 It is still only July, but our Christmas, Winter, Fall, Thanksgiving, and Halloween lines are rolling in.  Right now our Memory Box is in store and ready for your consumption and they are simply delicious. 

 If you want any you must hurry in, Susie is taking them with her next week when she goes to Cincy for a convention and she may just come home empty handed because this season's line WILL get eaten up!!  You don't want to wait forever to start your Christmas cards, or Halloween party invites!  Sharon has already had time to use the above pictured stamp and matching poinsettia die.  Some copics, some Stickles,  some flat-back pearls and love come together to make this gorgeous creation!!!!!

Girly Layouts made with Best Creations "Ballet Princess" papers and more!

I would like to start off with a quick introduction.  My name is Erin Nagy, I have been teaching the Cricut classes at Scrap Happy for a few months now. Susie asked me last week if I would like to be on the design team and I am very happy about that!  I have been scrapbooking for about 8 years now, and teaching various classes on my own for 4 years.  My scrapping style is usually simple and neat, but I love the look of direct to paper ink around the edges of mattes and color blocks.  Last year I had the opportunity to become part of the Cricut Demo Army.  That was a blast, but the program only lasted a few months.  Most of my time at home is busy with DH, plus 3 kids, Nate age 17, Kayla almost 13 and Elizabeth age 5.  They keep me running to various activities including: swimming, soccer, girl scouts, ballet, music lessons.....the list is endless :)  I also work part time for my husband.  So when do I craft?  At night, or at Scrap Happy

 The plan is for me to post every Tuesday.  I plan to include class samples, creative ways to craft with your Cricut and home decor projects.  Today I have a layout sample for an upcoming class series that several of us will be taking turns teaching.  ( I forget the class name, lol) but we are looking to give you scrappers some quick formulas to get layouts done quickly.  Today's page I designed to fit a lot of full photos, saves time from having to crop them, and space to journal/make notes about the event.  I am working with pictures of Elizabeth from ballet class at the Y and multiple other cute snapshots of her posing for the camera.  The Ballet Princess papers are perfect for this! I have also a picture of the "boy" version of this layout design using "Robots" paper.  Both sets of layouts will also include plain color Bazzil cardstock, We R embroidered paper, other pattern papers & coordinating cardstock stickers.  The class will give you the choice of "girl" or "boy" papers :)

Oh my, move over hubby, I have a new love and it is at Scrap Happy!!!!!  It is a brand new paper company called Authentique and it is unlike any other in its quiet, understated beauty! This is a MUST see for everyone with all tastes & styles, vintage, retro, classic, simple, shabby chic, feminine, masculine, distressed, you name it, it has it all and is G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S to boot!!!!  They are whimsical at one glance and elegant at the next. Each line speaks to everyone differently, and I hear the sweet prose of Austen and Bronte when looking at Splendid and Uncommon, and Gatsby in Journey.  I am absolutely in AWE of these papers and I want to share my excitement with all of you!  If you are a paper lover, as I am, then you must run, not walk, but RUN to Scrap Happy and get these unbelievably spectacular products!

 They currently have 4 lines available, 

 Splendid (my favorite)



& Journey
and an awesome Halloween line ready for release.  I must say, those that know me know that I don't do Halloween, but like all their other lines, this Halloween line, Glowing, is fabulous!  I will definitely have this in my collection!

Not only does Authentique do paper, but each line has a whole array of beautious embellishment!  Their alphas are beautiful, the card stock stickers are amazing and they have diecuts that are phenomenal!  Not only are they beautiful and the sentiments lovely but backside is full of more gorgeousness!!! My personal favorite element of these lines are the "Diction" stickers.  They are beautiful, tiny word stickers that match each line flawlessly in color, style beauty, & lyricism.  You have to see them to really appreciate them!  They have a very unique way of displaying their 12 x12 papers for the scrapper and they have 6x6 pads with 3 each of 12 designs for the cardmaker! 

I just can't say enough about this new company, absolutely my favorite out right now!  I hope that you will stop into the store, as we have all the current lines, I promise, I did not buy out the store, although I would have but for fear of being scolded by mama Susie for not sharing!  :/

We also hope that you stop by their site, as well, and read their story and see more of their product, "up close", you will fall in love, too!  Be sure to check out their gallery and see what their talented design team has been inspired to do........speechless!

Have a Scrap Happy day!

For the month of July Scrap Happy is having a BOGO special on Sizzix & Spellbinders dies.  Buy one and get the 2nd of equal or lesser value half off.  We have a HUGE selection of dies and more are coming in all the time, including the fun new pop-up dies some of us learned to use at the Karen Burniston class last month.  If we don't have what you are looking for Susie will order it for you on the spot.  Now that is customer service!  Susie will order anything for you at any time, please, NEVER hesitate to ask.  

On top of this amazing special we would like to remind you that we sell our Big Shot machines at 30% off retail EVERYDAY!  This price CANNOT be beat anywhere else, including any of the Big Box stores.  For $69.99 you can purchase the Big Shot machine to cut and emboss your little hearts out and it will last forever.  Mine is always on my desk because I use it in just about every project I do, I can't live without it.  And DON'T even get Sharon started, I think she breaks out her machine just to admire it she loves hers so much!  We, of course, sell all the accessories and if you are a newbie to the paper crafting world, we would LOVE to show you how it all works so you can become as obsessed as we are!  

Remember, be sure to friend us on facebook, subscribe to this blog, and/or sign up for our emails for all the latest news, sales, specials, and gossip!
