New product is being released at CHA Summer

Hey Bloggerettes,

I have been getting lots of pre-views of the new products that are showcasing at CHA Summer in Chicago. Wanna see some new Basic Grey????

The "Out Of Print" arrived today as well as some of the "Smash" product, huge Tim Holtz re-stock , new Helmar adhesives, western items, Sew Easy handles, a few La Blanche stamps, Crafter's Workshop stencils (6x6 numbers, tree branch and bricks), more Disney stuff.............

I want to invite everyone to join The Scrap Yard in doing a tribute to Breast Cancer surviviors by decorating a bra to the extreme and let us hang it from the rafters. This tribute will continue throughout the month of July. Show us what you've got - so to speak!!!

The fabulous gold ornate frame (24x36) with all of the tags pinned onto the red silk background, that you have ogled for months, is now a class. I am holding 3 classes in July and one in August to create this masterpiece. It is a creation of Paula and Debbie from 7 Gypsies. It will take 4 classes to complete. The class starts the first Wednesday in July. Sign-up now!

Remember we are offering Kids Camp - need a few more kids to sign up.

The store hours on Canada Day will be 12-5. Summer hours go into effect in July. We will be closing at 7 PM Mon-Thur, Fri 'til 9PM, Sat 10-5, Sunday Closed.

Upcoming 7 Gypsies Flip Album Class - Summer Series

Ok girls I have a new class for you!! I created this album using a 7 Gypsies photo stand, but instead of just photos I have made it into a flip style album. The theme of my album is childhood, mine to be exact. I have used some of my favourite childhood pictures in this album!

The thing I love the most about this album is that each layout is created on a paper bag! I love the vintage look of this album and I think you will too. This class will run on Monday evenings starting July 4 and runs weekly through August 15. The cost of the class $24.99 per week and that includes the cost of the photo stand! If you would like to join me in creating this beautiful album call the store at 403-271-2225 to reserve your spot.
