Welcome Back Ken!

We had such a great time this week with Ken Oliver visiting to teach two wonderful workshops. 

We kicked things off Wednesday night with Stencil Magic. It is always so terrific to just sit back and watch Scrap-A-Latte friends get lost in their own creativity. On Thursday, we shifted gears and used the same Color Bursts to create gorgeous greeting cards. Check out this short video of class memories.

Ken is such a fun and genuine person ... and oh so creative. What an enjoyable time for all.

Understandably it is tough for some of you to get away for weekday classes, but don't fret. We're already looking ahead to Ken's return in 2017 for a weekend visit to Scrap-A-Latte.

Thank you Ken Oliver for inspiring us to appreciate the art of simply creating!  Safe travels and we will see you next year!

There's This Guy ....

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

We had a great time at this weekend's crop. 

There was a Misti flurry (thanks Peggy!), followed by a Kiwi Lane swarm.  All good, because the latter led to Melissa for whipping out a personal record number of layouts. We shared lots of laughs and the "Princess Cara" wand managed to make its rounds to just about everyone!

As we found ourselves entering the dinner hour of day two, Sue came in from a bit of a break and said "There's this guy out back ... music playin' having his own private tail-gating party."  She seemed to think that was a bit out of the ordinary, but then, doesn't know our new cropping friends, Dorothy and Laura, that well yet.  Dorothy's husband had set them up for a bit of a picnic dinner break complete with grilled steak, twice baked potatoes and broccoli.  Now THAT's a supportive scrapbookin' husband and friend!

Thanks to everyone who helped make the weekend so much fun!  Looking forward to the next time!

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

Ken Oliver -- who's such a creative fellow -- is coming to Scrap-A-Latte again. He visited the store last summer to introduce "a-Latte" friends to his Color Bursts, and we had a blast.

Happy 4th!

Wishing all Scrap-A-Latte Friends a safe and happy 4th of July!

It's been a fun week here at Scrap-A-Latte with the first "Home" DIY home decor wood class.  After creating the word Home, each month that follows, you'll create a new "O" -- June was Uncle Sam and July is a beach ball.  If you missed the first class where we created the word, no worries -- call the store to learn how you can still get involved with creating this adorable project!

Just a friendly reminder that the store will be closed Sunday, July 3rd and Monday, July 4th to enjoy a little summertime fun with friends and family! Be sure to take lots of pictures and then come on in to scrap those memories.

Hey, if you're looking for something different to do with the kids this summer, why not sign up for Kids Summer Camp @ Scrap-A-Latte. Each week in July and August, they'll make something quite fun. The first project replaces flip flops with flip flaps, as the kids make a bright, cheery summertime mini album. Here's a peek at the project ... but you've got to check out the actual sample in the store to really see how much fun it is!

For those Blue Fern fans out there, you're going to want to take the next Double or Nothing class with Angie ... the sample's ready for her to add pictures of those rare quiet moments of summer.

Have a great weekend everyone ... stay safe and take a little time to reflect on just how fortunate we are to live in such a great country!

There's No Place Like "Home"

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

The place is all buzzing with chatter and folks creating layouts galore.

There's no place like "home" - especially when it comes to the latest wood DIY project at Scrap-A-Latte. Why not sign up for the class with Renee to create this adorable home décor project -- you'll paint the letters that spell out H-O-M-E. And in Tuesday's class, you'll also create an Uncle Sam as a substitute for the "O". Then each month, join Renee to create the next month's new "O."  In July, you'll create a beach ball. In August, you'll create an apple.  You get the idea! 

Check out these pictures and then give Renee a call at 631-482.9190 if you'd like to sign up for Tuesday's class. It's just another way to enjoy some creative time with friends at Scrap-A-Latte!

What a Great Day!

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

Well, it seemed like summer would never get to Long Island, but it's here at last!  There's nothing like waking up thinking it's Friday, only to realize it's Saturday (woo hoo!).  The sun is shining, flip flops have been dug out from the back of the closet, the scent of sun screen is in the air -- and so is the smell of burgers on the grill!  It's a happy time of year for sure.

Speaking of happy, lots of new mixed media goodies have hit the shelves. Check out a couple of snapshots below.  Come on in to get your creativity going!  Thrilled to also have Jen Starr spending the day with us at Scrap-A-Latte to teach a couple of great workshops with Viva Décor.

Find some time to take pictures of this gorgeous weekend ... as well as your Father's Day celebrations.  We'll be open on Father's Day so come on in if you'd like to check out some of the latest arrivals, class samples and more.  See you soon!

As you

New Blue Fern!

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

Woo hoo -- weekend is here and lots going on at the store.  Today Angie is teaching the Father's Day folio so that should be fun for everyone as they get inky and painty ... but in the end a really nice project for those special guys in their lives.

It's Christmas in June here on Monday as it's Christmas Card Club time.  Renee has another cute creation and those in the class can stop by on the 6th, anytime between 10 and 6, to make 5 of fthis month's card. 

Oh ... and a box arrived yesterday with "A-LATTE" beautiful Blue Fern.  The Tranquility papers are gorgeous and there's tons of new chipboard ... here's just a little peek at some of it. Check it out, or better yet, come by and get it while you can!  The Attic line will be coming in soon too!

Find a little time to create this weekend.  Actually Sunday's supposed to be a real wash out so might be a great day to get scrap-happy!

See you soon @ Scrap-A-Latte!
