Creativation 2019 - Day 1 and Head is Spinning!!

Greetings from the closing day of the 2019 Creativation trade show in Phoenix!  So many amazing new products from familiar manufacturers and some that will even be new to Scrap-A-Latte.  Hopefully you are following my Facebook pages -- both my personal one and the Scrap-A-Latte page, because I have been a posting fiend these past couple of days.  Here are just some of the great creative folks we shared the time with.

P.S.  Oh, my aching feet!  We covered lots of miles and can't wait to see the new products arrive during the next several months!

That's a Wrap on 2018

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

The Christmas holidays will soon be ready to scrapbook and there are just a few days left in 2018. I had the chance to spend a little time going through the many photos taken throughout the year, and thought I'd share my reflections on 2018 at Scrap-A-Latte.

A heartfelt thank you to all who continue to enjoy paper crafting and our sense of community. Your support truly means the world to me.

Grab a cup of coffee and take four minutes or so just to enjoy this little video...

Wishing you all a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year!  

Looking forward to creating with you in 2019!

This Year's Cookie Exchange

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

What a nice way to spend an otherwise gray winter day, sharing holiday cookies and other goodies with crafty friends. Thanks to all who participated!

As you all continue your holiday shopping, keep in mind that some of your crafty friends might really enjoy a gift card to Scrap-A-Latte (hint hint!).

Pace yourselves during this busy season and make sure to take lots of pictures for those scrapbook pages you're sure to want to put together when all the hustle and bustle is over.

My How Time Flies...

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

Oops, can't believe I haven't blogged since October ... time sure flies and here we are in December already!

What a great way to celebrate the start of each month, with the Fab Friday Art Journaling crew ... and oh what a crew it is!  It's funny how everyone loves getting lost in thought as they color their project pieces ... and then suddenly break into a sing-along with Neil Diamond, belting out Sweet Caroline!

It's also so much fun to watch how everyone starts with the same parts but puts their own unique touches to the projects ... that's what it's all about.  It's not about making it look just like the class sample, but learning a thing here or there and then making it your very own so that the project means something to you!

Thanks to the Fab Friday gang for making it such a fine way to start each month!

What a Nice Weekend!

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

What a nice weekend it was at the shop.  Saturday was rainy, windy and cold, but it was fun and cozy inside at the Scrap-A-Latte crop. Then Sunday was all about the double-header -- first Outside the Box and then Monthly Memories.

Below are a few pics from what has just been such a nice weekend with my crafty friends. Thanks for your continued support!

October-fest @ Scrap-A-Latte

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

What a great way to kick-off the weekend here at the shop with all sorts of fall-inspired projects -- from cards and layouts, from flip books to treat boxes, and even more! Thanks to all who stopped in to get their creativity going and to enjoy a little hot cider and donuts!
