New Product Release!

Happy Friday you guys!

I hope you are excited about this weekend!  We are looking forward to seeing lots of friendly faces at Oak Ridge Memory Magic this weekend.  You can come crop or shop or a little of both!  There will be lots of friendly faces, make and takes, and all kinds of goodies. 

Buuuuuuuutttt, today, I wanted to share this brand new product from We R Memory Keepers!  Our VIC's got to take a peek yesterday... it is a brand new punch!  WRMK has re-designed the old favorite Crop-A-Dile.  Did anyone else have the big heavy bulky one from years past?  This one is much more streamlined, smaller, looks easier to work, and has tons of options.



This is the video from WRMK to see all the highlights in a bit less than a minute!

I love that it cuts all kinds of materials - leather, plastic, chipboard and more!  These are currently only available for pre-order and will ship to us at the end of this month or beginning of October.  They are priced at $44.99 (plus, you get your VIC bonus back) and are going to be a great addition to your basic tool kit!

If you are ready for yours, go ahead and call the store and we will add one to the order book for you!  I am sure that we will have one in the store to experiment with too if you want to touch it and play with it first!  Keep your eyes peeled on Facebook for the arrival announcement!

Now, go get crafty (and come see us this weekend)!

Kiwi Lane Sale and Sneak Peek!

Happy Thursday! 

This week has been slammed full of goodies and I have one more BRAND NEW product announcement tomorrow!  We R Memory Keepers is keeping it under lock and key, so I am sworn to secrecy... however, feel free to speculate rampantly in the comments :)

I know we have a ton of Kiwi Lane lovers out there and I am so excited to share what is on sale this month!  The link to shop for all these goodies and more is right here!


These goodies are 15% off their normal retail price!  The sale lasts about another week and a half, until September 30th.  And, I know that these favorites go really fast, so make sure you get your order in... and maybe a few other things you have had your eyes on.  Don't forget, you can order through this link right here!

Now, go get crafty!  And I want to hear your WRMK predictions!

Do You Have Fancy Pants?

Happy Wednesday!

I am so excited about this!  When Sara emailed me last week, I couldn't wait to share the news with you all... One of my old favorite paper lines, who I thought was defunct, is back!  That's right!  Who loves some Fancy Pants! 

Another one of our favorites, Foundations Home Decor, bought Fancy Pants and is releasing a new Christmas line!  It's called Home for Christmas and I am loving it!  We are getting open stock papers and a few collection kits!




So, first of all, I love that is a smaller line.  I love all the things, but sometimes, having a few papers and embellies are better for my creative decision making and my wallet!  I also love that is has classic Christmas colors, reds, greens, neutrals.  It is traditional, without feeling stuffy or old.  Plus, it will go really well with any leftover embellies that you may have from other lines - especially enamel dots, washi, any veneers and ribbons! 

This new line (and some goodies from Foundations) are on order and will be here soon!  I do not have a ship date yet, but keep your eye on Facebook for announcements about new arrivals!  If you just can't wait to get your hands on Fancy Pants, call the store and we can put it in the order book just for you! 

What do you think?  Are you excited about Fancy Pants making a comeback?  If you got to pick a paper company to bring back, which would it be? 

Now, go get crafty!

Your New Must Have's!

Hello friends! 

I am so excited to share TWO new tools with you all today!  Well, one is a version of a tool that you definitely already, but for 12% of the population, you all should get excited! 

That's right! Tim Holtz is making his iconic and fabulous scissors just for lefties!  All you south paws rejoice and enjoy scissors that were made just for you!  They are on preorder for the store.  If you are ready to get your left hands on these awesome scissors, call the store and we will save you a pair!


I love that they even say lefty on them... so all those righties will keep their hands off your scissors! 

And.... now onto a brand new tool that is unlike anything I have ever seen before!  I will say that We R Memory Keepers has been knocking it out of the park in tools lately and this is no exception.  Whether you are Team Glitter Girl or Team No Glitter Ever, you will love this bad boy - it is a tiny, glitter vacuum!  It is made especially to suck up those tiny pieces that linger forever!



This little handheld device works just like a dustbuster or a vacuum!  It comes with a USB charging cord that fits in the top section.  And, then, to empty, you just swivel the bottom section and it opens for dumping straight in the trash. 

These little bad boys are so new, they don't even have a YouTube video yet!  We are so excited to have these on pre-order!  They will ship the first of October and have a retail price of $22.49!  We are already taking orders for these - just call the store and we will get it added to the book.  You can also send us a message on Facebook too! 

Now, go get crafty!

Best In Show!

Happy Monday friends!

I hope you all are feeling refreshed after the weekend!  Anyone hang out at the Fair?  Growing up, we went to the NC State Fair and my family always spent lots of time walking through the exhibits and farm animals and crafters tents and less time on the rides.  Let the record show that we are not farmers :)

If you didn't know, we here at Scrappin' In The City get to sponsor and judge the paper crafting section of crafts at the Tennessee Valley Fair!  Sara zipped over the other week to do the judging and is sharing the best in show!  These awesome winners will get a Scrappin' In The Ciy gift card and bragging rights for the year!


These two are the Best in Show for the Scrapbook Layouts and the Card competition! 


These are all the pieces and parts waiting for Sara's ruling! 

 We would love to see your entries next year!  Be sure to swing by the Fair to see all the goodies available in the craft tent!

Now, go get crafty for next year!

New Simple Stories!

Happy Friday y'all!

I hope you all are excited for a great weekend and have a little time to get a little bit of crafting done!

I am super excited to share that these FOUR lines are on their way to the store from one of our favorite brands - Simple Stories!  We are expecting two fall lines and two Christmas lines to be in the store soon!

Simple Stories has been playing with some vintage looks of their lines and this is one of them!  I love the texture on the pumpkins and the country patterns!




We also have a more modern autumn line headed in to the store... Perhaps my favorite part of the Fall Farmhouse line is that super cute sweater!



And then, it isn't too soon... Christmas is on its way!  We also have a vintage Christmas line headed in as well!  This Simple Vintage Country Christmas reminds me of my Grandmommie - she loved cardinals and I am loving this classic cardinals and boughs in this line!



And, don't forget, we have another Christmas line headed in... Holly Jolly!  This is a fun and funky Christmas line is great for my fans of retro Christmas!  I like the little Santa here too!




Both of these Christmas lines are perfect for your regular holiday scrapbooking or creating your own December Daily kit to document your holiday memories!

I believe that these have shipped, so they should be here soon-ish!  If you are ready for them TODAY, call the store and we will add it to the order book!  Then, as soon as it arrives, we will pull your order and give you a call!

We are so excited to have lots of ne goodies trickling into the store over the next few weeks!  Be sure to watch the Facebook page for the actual arrival dates of a lot of these pieces and parts!

Now, go get crafty!

Knocking It Out of the Park!

Happy Thursday! 

I am so excited to share this project with you all today!  If you didn't know, we do custom scrapbooks at the store.  Our City Chicks love creating projects for you all - plus it is a great way to get a finished project quicker! 

Our City Chick Amanda H created this project that is perfect for the University of Tennessee's Lady Vols Softball Program!  She used their signature colors of orange, white, and baby blue to document pictures and news articles from the past few years!  It is a great way to see all the highlights of their program and a keepsake for the team's history. 




























Even Gracie was excited to see this finished project!  I love how Amanda used extra cut files to enhance the news articles and add a little something special!  Feel free to drop Amanda a little love in the comments here or on Facebook

Do you know someone who is looking for a custom scrapbook?  Send them our way - we would love to create something special just for them too! 

Now, go get crafty - and get those projects finished!
