Mermaids Galore!

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

What a gorgeous Father's Day weekend it's going to be here on Long Island. It got kicked off at Scrap-A-Latte with a fun and shimmery Julie Nutting mermaid tag.

It's always fun to provide some guidance, but then let folks let their creativity flow ... and everyone's projects turn out to be their own unique creations that are reflections of them.

Thanks to everyone who came out today to share the class together ... and for those who registered but couldn't stop by today, your kits are ready to pick up at your convenience.

To all the Dads and Grand-dads out there, may you have a wonderful day tomorrow with those who hold you close to their hearts.

AJ Anyone?

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

What a way to kick off June ... with a Fab Friday night of art journaling!  The jumping off point was a "memories" project inspired by one of our favorite artists, Vicky Papaioannou. What is awesome about this class is how every one added their own touches!

That's what it's all about right ... using the class to help jump start the creativity, but then doing what you love to make it your own! And having fun chatting, laughing and maybe even getting lost in the process along the way!

Check out the calendars posted to the right ... there are classes of all types so there's sure to be something for everyone -- from scrapbooking to card making to mixed media fun.

Hope to see you soon at Scrap-A-Latte!  Enjoy your first weekend of June!

It's Suzy Time!

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

What a wonderful time with Suzy West this weekend.  We kicked off her visit with a stop on the lower east side of Manhattan for dinner at Katz's Deli ... a NYC landmark. Then topped off with tasty gelato!

Friday, she was busy hanging out with my cropping friends, and she made some beautiful samples that are now scattered all around the store. Great inspiration!  The evening was all about winding down around the fire pit with smores of course!  (And those who watched Suzy on FB live on Friday evening know that she gave new meaning to 'stop, drop and roll.')

Saturday, the day started with a lovely walk through the woods at the end of "Chateau Miller" and then the two days of workshops got underway. Everyone loved, loved, loved the Doodlebug 8x8 album project, and the six tags just filled with fun layers! Sunday Suzy wrapped things up with a wonderful workshop all about using pocket pages to maximize your scrapbook layouts.

Suzy's coming back mid-November, so watch for registration details so you don't miss out. In the meantime, here's a little video of this weekend's wonderful time together!

Oh What Fun!

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends!

We've had such a good time celebrating National Scrapbook Day at Scrap-A-Latte!  Day one has the new location hopping with activity -- it was so great to hear everyone just chattering and laughing the day away while enjoying time creating their layouts, projects or even just organizing their craft bags!

I'm thankful for such a great group of ladies... looking forward to day two of our time together.

This was the calm before the day two storm ... it's sure to be just as energetic a day as yesterday!

Hope you're able to stop by sometime today or during the week ... and keep creating!

Today's the Day ...

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

Finally, we're getting a little taste of spring here on Long Island, and it's just in time as we all welcome Layle Koncar from Simple Stories to the shop for a weekend of creative workshops!

The fun begins this evening, with her a mini album that is all about YOU!  Now how's that for a concept, since we're all pretty much guilty of scrapbooking everyone but ourselves.

We'll be sure to update the blog with pictures from the four different workshops taking place throughout the weekend, so stay tuned!

P.S. If you weren't able to make it for any of her workshops, come on down to the store to browse and shop to your heart's content.

Here are pictures from Sunday morning's final workshop with Layle (sad face), which is all about the Happiest Place on Earth.  Could that be Disney, Scrap-A-Latte or both (ha!).

Here are pictures from Saturday morning's travel album workshop...gorgeous!

And here are pictures from Saturday afternoon's Crafty Girl layout class!

Here are pictures from the Friday the 13th evening workshop -Tell Your Story.
