HOCKEY has begun and if you have a page you want to complete, I have found a quick selection of papers from our sports section to show you. We have plenty of embellishments and stickers and more to make a stunning page. Not to mention our huge selection of school name die cuts. If we don't have it on the wall, just ask and we can make a custom cut with your school name and school colors.

Since we are in the middle of the hunting season, I thought a quick post about our gorgeous hunting papers would be appropriate. We have great papers from Sugar Tree and Up North and more to choose from. Great scenes of duck hunting, deer, bear, pheasant and more. Come see our selection.

Product Highlights

The best part about working at a scrapbook and rubber stamp store is seeing all the goodies come in when they arrive (and putting a few in my "gotta buy" pile). But, since I don't actually work every single day, I DO miss some items as they pass through our system. Below I found a set of papers I thought I would share today. The colors on these just jumped at me.

Nice papers for great Military pages, 4th of July pages and more!

And this is the back side of these papers.

Design Team projects

I have had this question posed to me several times....What does the Design Team do each month?  The team is given a project theme to work with each month.  This could be working with a specific Manufacturers or a certain Season or other event.  They also get $10 in store credit (or product and store credit) to spend on the project each month plus a 20% on all their purchases during their tenure as a DT member.  This month they were each given a chipboard album to work with because we have so many great albums to choose from and they come up with fabulous ideas you can use to make your own album.  You can see their projects each month on our Design Team board near the checkout desk.

Does being a Design Team member sound like something you might like to try?  We will be looking for another team in January, so start thinking about the fun you could have being a DT member.  Get projects done, get a discount, and have your work displayed for all to admire.....sounds like fun to me!
