Wish List

Can you believe that the Christmas season is officially here?  Shopping is in full swing and I am already feeling the pressure.  I don't know about the rest of you, but often times, I would love some scrapbook goodies in my stocking or under the tree!  I have a few relatives who do not like giving gift cards and prefer to pick out something special, so I have the perfect solution!

Check out the Scrappin' In the City wishlist!  Print this list and take it with you to the store... create you list and leave it where the elves can find it!  It makes it easy for those who are looking for something just for you (and need a little guidance)!

You can download it right here!  Don't forget to drop in to shop our sales and specials this weekend!  We can't wait to see you and thank you so much for supporting small businesses!

Now, go get crafty (and eat some leftovers)!

December Daily from Simple Stories

Has anyone started their December Daily yet?  I *think* mine is prepped and ready to go for the Christmas season!  A note of caution, this is my first year doing one, so take all I say with a grain of salt.  I premade my pages and have space to add in all my holiday pictures and goodies!  I will report back with how it is going, once December arrives!

I saw these beautiful kits in the store and they caught my eye!  Simple Stories always has an amazing December Daily kit and this year they may have out done themselves!

I love all the buffalo plaid and the adorable numbers!  Squee!  There are some still in the store if this piques your curiosity.  If this whole process seems really overwhelming (the reason it took me so many years to do one), then we have the class for you!  Sign up and join Amanda Hillard on December 1 to make one!  You can register right here - it is $35 and you will walk out the door with one completed!  Woot!

Now, go get crafty!

PS-Don't forget to make plans to see us on Black Friday and Small Business Saturday!  Great deals are to be announced!!!

Last Minute Thanksgiving Cards!

The countdown is on and we are so close to the big Turkey Day!  I am packing our suitcases for a weekend of travel and trying to decide what pens I can stick in my bag!  (Does someone else insist on taking art supplies on every vacation.... because you just never know???)  Anyways, if you need a cute Thanksgiving card to whip up quickly or perhaps you are bringing a project for kids to work on, check out his adorable card from our friends at Photoplay! 


It features their fall line Autumn Orchard!  I love that it is a versatile card and could totally be done with little hands too!  If you need directions, they are right here and this is the link to the cut file!  We have a little more of this paper line in store - so drop by to get it! 

We would love to see any Thanksgiving crafts you are up to!  Share them on Facebook and Instagram and don't forget to tag us! 

Now, go get crafty!

A Very Tim Holtz Christmas!

Gina has been hard at work with the latest release of Tim Holtz goodies!  She created this amazing Christmas display and I am super thrilled to share it with you!  It is currently on display in the store and words don't do it justice, so make sure you stop by and take a gander when you are here!

The base of the kit is the Tim Holtz Vignette boxes and vignette box tops.  She took the other goodies and embellished the heck out of these boxes!  She use the paper from Tim Holtz Christmas paper pad for the backing papers as well as the box tops. 







All these little details are just perfect and make an incredible completed holiday scene! 

Gina snapped a picture of all the products she used - I have added links to shop online for each of them!

The Christmas lights are a mini light set from Target.  I am just so impressed with this incredible work of art!  Stop by and see it in real life at the store and let it inspire your Christmas wonderland!  

Leave your kudos to Gina in the comments or on our Facebook page!  

Now, go get crafty!

Document December Class!

I am soooo excited to be able to share this class with you all!  City Chicks Amanda H has been hard at work developing this super class just for you all!  Using this adorable Bella Blvd Santa Stop Here kit, she has transformed this into a perfect way to document your December!  It is versatile enough to use it as a December Daily or a traditional Christmas album.






The class is scheduled for December 1 from 6-8:30.  If you ask me, this is the perfect way to spend a Friday night!  You can register for the class right here or call the store.  There are only SIX spots to make sure you hustle to get in!  The class cost is $35 - a $7 savings from buying just the kit.  You will need your basic tool kit, plus a red and green dauber

I can't wait to see everyone's finished album!
Now, go get crafty - and sign up!
