Store Updates

Spring Garage Sale
.
Our spring Garage sale will be Saturday, April 16th from 10 to 3.  Thus far we have 29 people selling some really awesome items.
  
Beginning at 9 am, we will give out tickets to the people standing in line outside the store.  We give out tickets for 2 reasons.  1) Once you get a ticket you don't have to stand in line any more.  Just be back a few minutes before 10 to get back in line.  2) For crowd control.  We let the first 10 tickets in at 10, then next at 10:03, then 10:06, etc.
  
I suggest that shoppers bring a bag or some item to put your treasures in while shopping.  
National Scrapbooking Day Celebration
To celebrate National Scrapbooking Day A Memory to Scrap will host our fourth annual Broken Arrow Neighbors Charity Celebration.  I call it a celebration, because there are just too many different things going on to help raise money, donations, and awareness for Broken Arrow Neighbors to name it anything else. 
  
Beginning April 1st and through the whole month we will be collecting non perishable food items for Broken Arrow Neighbors.  Every time you bring in a donation, you will receive a ticket for our prize drawings.(Limit 1 ticket per person per day for donations)
  
We are also hosting some fun contests.  The theme this year is spring flowers.  There are several categories you can enter your creations:
1) Best use of flowers on a scrapbook page
2) Best use/creation of flowers in an altered item
3) Best created 3D flower
4) Best picture of a flower
5) Best flower card
Items for judging need to be dropped off by Saturday April 23rd at 6 pm.  The winner of each category will receive a gift certificate to the store.  Judging will be done by customers between April 27th and 4 pm on April 30th.  The winners will be announced at 7 pm on April 30th. 
  
Did I mention the prizes?  A Memory to Scrap has some amazing manufacturers that donate just awesome prizes every year.  This year is no exception.  There will be several awesome prizes,  a few huge prizes, and the grand prize which includes the Bo Bunny limited addition leather purse filled with just released papers.  There are different ways to get chances to win the prizes: 1) bring in donations during the month of April, 2) everyone gets 1 ticket if you stop by the store between April 27th and April 30th 3) Buying a ticket for $1 (100% of the tickets sales goes to Broken Arrow Neighbors)
  
  

Spring 2011 Green Country Scrapbook Run 
  
Mark your calendars.   The 2011 Spring Scrapbook Run will be April 29th through May 7th.  This year 8 stores will be participating in the run.  At each store the participates can create an awesome card.  The grand prizes are more, bigger, and better than last run.  Plan to participate and enjoy the fun.  
  
The purpose in the Scrapbook Run is to allow paper crafters the opportunity to visit all the 8 stores in the area.  The first store visited will give the runners a passport.  Get the passport stamped at each store.  When the passport is filled, the participants will be given a raffle ticket for the several grand prizes. 
  
Another way to earn chances to win the grand prizes is to complete the project.  The project consists of 8 cards.  Each store will give the participants the supplies needed to create a card.  By showing a store the completed 8 card, the participants will earn a ticket.
  
Finally a participant will be given an extra ticket at any store that they spend at least $25.  In total a participant can earn 10 tickets for the grand prize drawings.
  
At A Memory to Scrap will will be doing out own drawings for some awesome prizes.  Make sure you sign up at the store for our in house drawing. 
  
Also if you spend $40 at A Memory to Scrap, you will get to draw a jeweled egg.  Inside the eggs are great prizes like free classes, free crops, gift certificates,  goodies bags, and much more. Every egg will be a winner.

The Bead Corner
Over the last 3 years I have watched my customers' hobby of traditional "scrapbooking" with paper and flat embellishments grow. The projects that they have been creating such as altered books, memory purses, shadow boxes, heritage bracelets, canvases, center pieces, scrapbook quilts, the list goes on and on is truly amazing. I have also been listening to all of your requests for items that are not flat to encompass into these projects.

With the expansion of the store I was able to create an area I hope all of you 3D scrapbookers will find very helpful.  Just to give it a name, I am calling it The Bead Corner, but it contains so much more. This little area is packed with trinkets, crystals, metal pieces, 3D flowers, stone shapes all sold by the piece and chain sold by the foot.

I know I can not carry all that you have asked for, but  I hope I have done justice to covering the big ones.   Keep checking in at The Bead Corner, you just might find that perfect little piece to finish your project. Please keep bringing in your projects. A week never goes by where I am not humbled by creativity of one of my customers.
