Lawn Fawn Will Be Here in TWO WEEKS!

Guys!  This is not a drill!  In just two weeks, Lawn Fawn will be here, at Scrappin' In the City to teach card making classes!  I can't believe that we are getting so close to the big day!

And just a run down of what is happening:
-Jenn Shurkus of Lawn Fawn is our instructor
-Each class makes 5 cards (these are just a sneak peek)
-Each card uses a special "technique" to make them even cuter!
-Learn to use the shadow box, magic slider, and more!
-Classes are $45 each, or save $10 and sign up for both!


PLUS, I want to tell you about the other AMAZING things going on in store that day, courtesy of World Card Making Day!  If you take the class, you have a student-only discount of 15% OFF ALL LAWN FAWN (insert happy dance here!).  And, Sara has re-ordered all of the new release items, so anything you have a hankering for will be there.

And, in addition to teaching amazing classes, Lawn Fawn will be providing a make and take FOR EVERYONE at the store - not just class attendees!  So, feel free to stop by and make a card to celebrate World Card Making Day!  It may just be the best day of the year...More information about the classes can be found right here and right here!  We still have spots open in all the classes.

New Lettering Classes

The classes are continuing this week!  We are so excited to have more hand lettering scheduled for the month of October!

We are offering another beginner lettering class and a brand new Bounce and Serif Font class!

The beginner class is great for anyone who is interested in getting started with lettering.  I will take you through all the types of pens, papers, brush strokes, and straight into the alphabet and words!  You will learn everything you need to get started with hand lettering!  Class information and sign ups can be found right here!


The second class is a Bounce and Serif class that is a great class for anyone who is ready to keep moving in their lettering journey!  It is best if you have already taken the beginners class.  We will learn TWO brand new fonts - a whimsical bounce font (what we see most often in home decor pieces) and a bold printed serif font!  In addition the learning the fonts and lettering tips, we will create a small art piece!  All you need to bring with you are your pens!  Information about registration can be found right here!

New Bible Journaling Classes!

This has been a week of class announcements and we will keep them coming!  I am so excited to be teaching Bible Journaling/Bible Art classes at Scrappin' In The City!  Not too long ago, we hosted Jann Gray and she showed us some AMAZING techniques to making your bible journaling beautiful!  We want to build on what she has shared and are super excited to be offering a monthly class.  Each month, we will look at a new technique or trick to making your bible a living document of prayer and focused thought!

Each class is designed for all levels - from beginner to advanced.  We will be meeting on the second Tuesday of each month from 6:00-7:30!

This first month, we will be learning the Napkin technique!  When Sara first mentioned this, I kind of thought she was crazy.  But, after seeing so many examples, I can't wait to share it with you guys!  And if you can use scissors, you can definitely do this!!! Check out these beautiful examples of napkins in Bibles!



More information about the class is found at this link and you can sign up there or call the store!  The class fee is $15 and it covers all materials!  All you need to bring is a journaling bible and a pair of scissors.  I can't wait to see you guys!

Now go get crafty!

Vinyl Headquarters!

Did you know that we have totally redone our vinyl selection?  We love a huge heat transfer stash for projects and we are so excited to have all of this new vinyl in the store!  Our City Chick Amanda took this giant stash home and cut, rolled, and sorted it so that it is easier to look through and find exactly what  you need!  

 We have a variety of colors, patterns, and glitters!  Plus, if you want something you can't find in the store, just ask!  We can order a variety of other colors and patterns.
 Those chevrons!!! Who can see a cute Christmas tree shirt with the green and white chevron??? And some red glitter ornaments and stars!

 Any vinyl newbies???  We are planning a new class with City Chick Amanda to teach you all the tricks to making an AMAZING heat vinyl project.  She works wonders with her vinyl (she made my son's birthday shirt this year) and is a great teacher and resource.  

Can't wait until class to learn - call the store to schedule a private lesson!  We also do custom work, so just say the wod and we will create an amazing product just for you!  (Turn around times do vary, especially with the holidays coming up!)

What is going to be your first vinyl project???  Comment below or share it with us on Facebook and Instagram!

We are so thrilled to be hosting Dyan again!  She will be back in Knoxville the weekend of November 10-12 and teaching a full slate of classes.  There are links and class descriptions below.  Last time Dyan was here, classes sold out in a heartbeat!  Make sure that you call or register online as soon as possible to secure your spot!

On Friday, Dyan is teaching an ALL-DAY Expanding the Page class!  This is a great class for someone who is really familiar with Dyan's techniques and has taken a class with her before.  In this class, you will really work on finishing some projects and a bit less on the techniques!  It is a 9:30am-6pm adventure so be prepared to squish your brain full of Dyan's style and amazing teaching!


These three pictures give me some SERIOUS journal envy!  The class is priced at $140 and you can register right here!

And on Sunday, Dyan is teaching TWO classes!  She is the energizer bunny of teaching!  Sunday morning, from 9am-1pm, she is teaching Using Imagery with Your Journals and will share all her wisdom on creating and altering pictures you find in a ton of different places in your journal!  I have to say, she is the such a master at this - I can't even imagine all the things you will learn!

The class fee is $70 and registration is open here!

The second Sunday class is all about creating texture in your journal!  She will teach the class, Introducing Tags and Texture to your Journal, and show you all the ways to make your journal more dimension and engaging for the eye!  With a few simple go-to's, the pages will pop and you will LOVE what you are seeing!
This class goes from 2pm-6pm on Sunday and is priced at $70. Registration is available here!

Scrap Gals Podcast

Did you know that Sara is now (a bigger) celebrity in the scrapbook world?  She was interviewed for the Scrap Gals podcast this week and we couldn't be prouder!  If you have a few minutes, check out the podcast at this link!  The interview is about an hour long and Sara talks about all things scrapbooking.
I love this quote, it reminds me that even as a "regular" person, I can do awesome things and that is definitely what Sara is doing!  It also means that I can do the hard things I am a bit afraid of - like teaching new classes (more details coming soon!), traveling to crazy places, and changing the way I think about scrapbooking!  

If you are new to us, zipping over from Scrap Gals, be sure to check out our Facebook page and our Instagram!

If you are loving what you hear, be sure to follow the Scrap Gals in their Facebook group, found right here!

Now, go get listening!

PS - We can't wait to see you tonight at the consignor's pre-sale and tomorrow at 10AM for the Yard Sale!  We will have some Yard Sale Pictures for you tomorrow morning!
