One of our staff called today to make her reservation and was told that our room block has been filled. The hotel also said they could not honor the group rate, but they could give her a room at a higher rate.
If this happens to you, please go ahead and MAKE THE RESERVATION anyway.
This information is incorrect, but we can't do anything about it until Tuesday (everyone left early today because it is a holiday weekend!).
Here's what to do:
1. Make the reservation at the rate they assign you (even though it is higher than our advertised group rate).
2. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know you've made the reservation and the name the room is under.
3. I will contact the reservations manager on Tuesday and have her switch the price to the correct group rate.
4. Please note that your credit card does not get charged until that weekend, so there will not be a charge for reserving the room.
If you haven't already made your reservation, what are you waiting for? :)
We are EXCITED for a GREAT weekend!!! Now, if only I could start getting myself organized...
Monday, September 1st is the Early Bird cutoff for the Beach Retreat registration. It's also the last day that we can guarantee the group rate at the hotel. Call today to reserve your spot!
From Paper House Productions... new paper including Field Hockey, Africa, Egypt and China! Also, Alaska stickers have been restocked.
We've restocked some of the papers in our beach section. Some are old, some are new. All are best sellers!
Making Memories albums are back on shelves, including the leather 12x12s and the NEW corduroy 3 ring albums in both 12x12 and 8x8. We've also received the Pioneer 8x8 leatherette albums. These 8x8 albums are a perfect fit for the Theresa Collins Christmas, Halloween and travel lines!

1. I am LOVIN' the new Basic Grey! Among other things, the Ambrosia collection (the one with all the orange) could be used for a great Halloween layout. Not necessarily one of the kids, but more along the lines of how you decorate your house. You know, more of a sophisticated, adult layout.
2. The new QuicKutz release is great, and the samples in the store are adorable. QK Club members - the free Exclusive Recipe Card (with any $35 purchase) is going fast, so come in soon! Also, your free Rolling Pin awaits you - or punch it out with yellow cardstock and make it a corn-on-the-cob!
3. The new Bon Appetit collection by Theresa Collins is on shelves. And, by the way, it goes GREAT with the QuicKutz release! (it's the black/white/green papers in the slideshow above)
4. We have a whole new collection of inks by Ranger. New ink pads (each color comes in 3 different shades for your stamping pleasure!), new alcohol inks, new distress reinkers and pigment ink pads. Also new from Ranger, Perfect Pearls! Use a little bit of Perfect Pearls with some water in a mini mister, and you've got yourself your own Glimmer Mist!
5. And, for all you Tim Holtz stalkers, we've got more of his embellishments in stock...Fragments, metal embellishments (gears, arrows, keys, etc.), rulers and more.
6. The 40% off sale for QuicKutz is still going strong. We received our last shipment of the month yesterday, so the wall is restocked and ready for you. In case you've been living under a rock for the past month, or just haven't heard, all 2x2s and 4x4s are a whopping 40% off until the end of the month. Come in and stock up!
7. We are OPEN on Labor Day! Enjoy your 3 day weekend :)

Hello everyone! I'm back in the lower 48 and ready to start scrappin' our family cruise to Alaska! (That's all 12 of us in the picture standing in front of the Hubbard Glacier.) Let me just say that it was absolutely beautiful there...the weather was in the 50s...we saw whales practically every day...and the snow capped mountains were just amazing. If you've ever thought of cruising to Alaska, I say go for it...you will love it!
The 24 hour Crop Around the Clock crop is this weekend, and I'll be there in the wee hours of the morning croppin' away! There's still room if you'd like to sign up...I think when I talked to Susan this morning, she said there were 6 or 7 seats still available. Join us - it's going to be a blast!
starting at 10 a.m.
24 hours for $24
Sleeping bags and air mattresses optional :)
Chocolate snacks encouraged!!
