Christmas in July?

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

Happy July! It's been such a busy start to the summer, that I'm afraid I've not had a chance to blog for a bit. But there's some fun news to share about something new starting this month at Scrap-A-Latte - Heartfelt Creations Release Classes.

Heartfelt Creations releases new coordinating stamps, dies and papers every month, and Scrap-A-Latte will host a release class on the second Wednesday of each month, plus an alternate weekend day to be announced based on other activities already on the calendar. We'll make cards or scrapbook pages or both .... mixing it up month to month based on your interests and the new releases too.

To kick things off, there will be a Heartfelt Creations release party between 11 am and 5 pm on Wednesday, July 12th and Saturday, July 15th. Come by to make a free Make & Take card that features some of the new Heartfelt Creations releases, which will be available to purchase or order.

Below are several samples made from this month's Christmas-themed stamps, dies and papers.  The free make and take will be a card similar to the one on the bottom left.

Watch the newsletter for more details about future Heartfelt Creation Release Classes. And to help with planning and preparations, please call the store at 631.482.9190 to let me know if you're coming to the July 12th or 15th Make & Take release party.

Merry Christmas in July!

Well THAT Was Fun!

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

A quick note to thank everyone who came out today to have a fun time at the first annual Scrap-A-Latte Barbecue. Hats off too to our terrific chefs, Marty and Nate. It was such a fun time!

Renee is now an official certified Kiwi Lane instructor too, so we celebrated this great news by having a catalog party during today's BBQ.  If you didn't have a chance to place your order, Renee is keeping the party going through Thursday, June 1st. Come on by the store to browse the catalog, or go onto her special Kiwi Lane site to place your order if you'd like to order shipped to your home address:

Questions, just give Renee a call at 631.482.9190.

Happy National Scrapbook Day!

Happy National Scrapbook Day to All of Our Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

The weekend kicked-off with a full-house at our Art Journaling class ... always so many good times on those Friday nights. And the creativity continues with this weekend's two-day crop, complete with pasta lunch (hey, the ladies need to carb up to keep their energy up to crop into the late-night hours!). There's also a fun Chinese Auction going on so come on in if you'd like to purchase tickets to drop in bucket(s) of the gifts you would like a chance to win. Renee is pulling winners on Monday. You don't have to be here to win.

Lots going on at Scrap-A-Latte so please stop in to check out the latest arrivals and sign up for classes and crops.  Happy creating!

Fab Friday Means Inky Painty Sticky Fun!

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

Each month, a bunch of creative and fun-loving folks get together for a night of art journaling. We paint, glue, ink, stencil, stamp, color, and just carry on as we create together. Some projects, like the pictured below from a recent class, are inspired by Vicki Papaioannou, one of our favorites!

So if you've been wondering what to do with all those paints, inks and other goodies you haven't used yet ... maybe you'd like to try Art Journaling! Call the store at 631.482.9190 to register for this or any of the other classes you'd like to take part in.  The more the merrier!

Lights! Camera! Action!

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

What a great weekend. It began with such a nice group of ladies at Saturday's No Frills crop.  Then today was really nice and busy around the store, plus an afternoon class with Renee. But the day began with Renee's video debut.

If you missed it, check it out below. It's a very short 2-minute video featuring several of the newer PhotoPlay lines. You can be sure there will be more videos coming soon!  Let us know what you think and if they may spark your creativity!

And So It Begins...

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

The day is young, but the No Frills crop is underway and there's such a happy buzz in the air at the store. Everyone's sharing their ideas, latest projects, and just catching up. And Lucy, who has been quite busy in her day-to-day, had a chance to stop in for her "fix" so it was great to catch up with her too.  Stay tuned, and more pictures will likely be added as the day unfolds. Love days like this!

Hoping you have a chance to swing by the shop this weekend and get your creative mo-jo going, or if you can't come by, try to find time to work on something fun from your stash!

Still going:

The morning gets underway:

Darned Groundhog!

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

OK, that groundhog has lots of explaining to do!  It's nearly the middle of March and we're going through another deep freeze ... and even another snowstorm is coming this way next week.  Looking at the glass as half full, one of our scrappy friends said that means there's a scrap room organization day coming (ha!).

Today was the first day of the March 2-day Latte crop, and it was great to have some regulars mixed in with newbies.  The adhesive, photos and papers were flying, along with plenty of stories.  Crops are always so much fun to just kick back and catch up, share stories, and even ideas for scrapbook pages. Others choose to use the time as some quiet "me" time where they can just organize pictures, browse Pinterest, take a break to shop ... and just hang with friends.

If you'd like to join us for a crop, there is a 2-day crop each month (includes breakfast and lunch), as well as a 1-day No Frills Crop (breakfast).  Call the store at 631-482-9190 to reserve your spot ... don't delay because the crops do fill up fast!
