Scrappin' On Sundays...

Another week has past by... I can not believe that fall has officially arrived

Another busy weekend at Windy City Scrapbooking

Here is your SOS...

For all of those who came out to our 1st Open House...Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, so much
It went over very well and as you can see, our instructors have been working very hard to create projects that you will learn so much from.
We had everything at the Open House from Holiday Gift Tags with Jen to Canvas Books with Melissa, and we are even ready to keep the youngest scrapper happy with our Mommy and Me Ornament class and Paper Dolls classes with Angie. If you did not get a chance to come by the store for the sneak peaks this past weekend, make sure you do stop by as there are samples in the store. We really do hope that you will try to take a few of our classes as they not only make great gift ideas but they will also teach you new techniques to add to your scrapbook projects. We will also try to keep you updated with current trends in the scrapbooking industry.

Speaking of scrapbooking industry, we are still receiving new product in daily from this past summer's CHA show that was in Chicago. The long anticipated URBAN LILLY has made it's debut in our store and it is yummy. There are papers and rub-ons and even some blank books for you to enjoy. Luxe Designs, to whom we are a full service retailer for, has released two new lines in our store. I just love how they come up with the cool names for their paper lines. We now have the "Ex-Boyfriends" line that has pretty fall colors and the "Bustier" line that has rock star names to its papers like Lauper, Bowie, and Hendrix. Luxe has also come out with cool transparencies that are too cute along with more ribbons. We also have new Autumn Leaves stamps and Heidi Swapp new items have come in too. We have her new clear stamps and new flowers along with metallic rubons and new masks and BLING...just to name a few. A new Junkitz line called "School Dayz" came in too and since my twins will finally return to their preschool program tomorrow I am excited to get this for future layouts. Now you know of course, I do not have photos to show of all the new products because I want everyone to come down to the store and see looks better in person. Psst...I even heard that some new Basic Grey Chipboard was seen at the store too!!!

Be sure to visit us this weekend for our Scrap Pink Crop. We have 3 days of cropping going on and 10% of all sales the whole weekend will go to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. We still have spots available for Friday night's crop (5:30-11:30 pm) and Sunday day's crop (11-5 pm). There is just one spot left for Saturday's All day crop (10am-11pm)...feel free to visit the website or call the store @ 773-935-0585 for more information or to register.

Til next Sunday
