Weekly Challenge + A Day

So, our weekly challenge is a day late this week... we just couldn't wait to announce our new guest instructors.  If you missed it, you can find all the details here.

Okay... Last week's challenge was to show off your planner pages!  I don't know about you all, but this is the time of year that I break in a new planner - just in time for the new school year.  I feel like planners are such personal documents and everyone is looking for just the right one to fit their style.  One of my favorite things about the planner arts is how individual it makes everyone's calendar!  So, without further ado, I want to share some of my favorite layouts!

Our very own City Chick Gina has been working hard on her planner and shared a few pictures of her planner and The Reset Girl's Summer Camp.  I love how she has been using her planner to be mindful of goals, both big and small!  For more of Gina's Camp Reset photos, check out her Instagram here!



I went perusing for a few more inspiration photos and found these!  I love how planners can be simple or complex!

Anyone a bullet journaler?  I am LOVING some of these bullet journal layouts!  What an incredible way to track your reading list of the year!  I am thinking about making one of these to hang in my office.  I think my mom would love it too!  

This looks just like my planner... a list of to-dos and a bunch of doodles!

Want to learn more about all things planner?  We have a ton of planners in store that you can shop right here or join us this weekend for our second Knoxville Plannerd meetup!  We welcome experienced plannerds or people who are new to planning!


The event is free, but please RSVP so we know how many to expect!  It is drop in from 1-5pm.  There is an optional workshop at 1:15pm... for $5 you can make three super cute laminated dashboards and three embelllished paper clips!

First of all, mark your calendars for the Fall Yard Sale!
We will host the Yard Sale September 15-16, 2017!  Drop off will be earlier that week and you can pick up your yard sale tags and contract now!


Next up, we are so excited to be hosting the one and only LAWN FAWN!  That's right... she is headed this way to teach classes the weekend of October 6-8.  We don't have class specifics yet, but block that weekend off for an amazing class with the magical LAWN FAWN!  We can't wait to welcome Jenn Shurkus, a creative genius over at Lawn Fawn!

This is some of the amazing new projects made by the design team and we can't WAIT to see what she teaches us!  If you want to learn more about Jenn, her website can be found here!


Next up is for my favorite PLANNERDS!  The Reset Girl herself, Cori, is headed to Scrappin' In The City!

Cori is currently leading the incredibly popular summer challenge at Camp Reset and is on the forefront of all things planner related!  Have you been following along with her online and on Instagram?  I am a HUGE fan!  Cori will be here in November and we are still working out the details of the specific dates and classes - stay tuned for more information!


And, last, but certainly not least, we are thrilled to have the Queen of Mixed Media, Dyan Reaveley back for another delightful weekend of classes, paint, and fun!  Dyan was an incredible teacher and we learned so much... and got soooooo messy!  Love it!


Dyan will also be coming in November, specific dates and classes to be announced!  Stay tuned and we will let you know as soon as we hear the details!

Glitter Girl and Doodlebug!

Ah, this might be the line that I am most looking forward too... I think, maybe... there were so many great releases!  But, I will confess that I proudly love Shimelle more than most!  Anyways, today, Shimelle and American Crafts released all the details of the new line Glitter Girl.

You can check out the whole video here...

... and some of our favorite pictures of the new line below!





I am in love with the bright colors, glittery embellishments, and those shaker stickers!  Yes, please!  One of my favorite things about this line is how light and happy it feels.  I think it is the perfect paper to celebrate beautiful moments in everyday life.  What do you all think?

Also, we have ordered TWO new Doodlebug lines - headed to the store!  We will have Booville and Milk and Cookies!
More details from the lines can be found on our Facebook page in pictures Sara snapped at SPC!  The little paper clips are truly adorable and I can't wait to get my fingers on them!

Desperate to get your paper line?  Call and request it!  We will pull the products when they come in the store and call you when they arrive!  

Now go get crafty!

More Lawn Fawn and More Simple Stories!


We are wrapping up the releases from last week's SPC show!  I can't believe all the amazing goodies headed our way, and then some.  American Crafts will do a live launch of Shimelle's latest line "Glitter Girl" today at noon, eastern time.  We will have more details about it tomorrow!

But today, I wanted to share THREE more lines from Simple Stories AND a ton of new things from Lawn Fawn!  Shall we get down to business???

Simple Stories has another fall line launching
Love this fall line that doesn't have a strong orange component!  

I love all things argyle, and I think this paper is just too cute!

A little winter/Christmas cross over paper!  We definitely need a white Christmas!

Those penguins on plaid!!!

I am swooning over that star paper!  

I think the diecuts in this line are just stunning!


Lawn Fawn has another amazing, over the top release with a ton of goodies!  Once again, I have just shared pictures of the stamps.  If you want to see more about the dies and other example from their INCREDIBLE design team, check out the Lawn Fawn blog.  

They are releasing four brand new ink cubes (I love the names... fake tan!  It makes me chuckle!)

They also have two adorable new paper packs coming out. Both come in 6x6 and 12x12 size.

And, there are a handful of new stand alone dies coming too!

And, now, for the stamp sets... get ready to write down your list of wants!!!
Christmas Dreams

I want to be in this scence!  

Beary Happy Holidays


Can I say how cute that backside is!!??!!

Winter Village


I think I would like to live in the land of Lawn Fawn!  

Ummm... yes!  I love all of these little sayings and those furry behinds!  

There are just no words!  Adorable!  


Who wants to send me this Christmas card this year?  
Adorable!

Who doesn't love a cute otter!  

This was their Thank you stamp from last fall... availabe for purchase!  It is making me think about Valentine's Day!
I hope you have enjoyed all these goodies!  Remember, if you are dying to have something, call the store and request it!  That guarantees that we will get it in the store and it will be held for you.  So many of our new goodies sell out in a hurry (ESPECIALLY Lawn Fawn), this is the best way to make sure you don't miss out on something amazing!  

Don't forget, we had a scraplift Sunday challenge on Instagram yesterday!  Participate and tag us in your picture to get featured on our social media!  Also, this week is the last week for the #citychicksscrapchallenge planner edition!  

Now, go get crafty!
