Our  "Oh, Baby" class sold out and we were unable to add people to the class because of the product being on backorder before the class date.  Since then, the product has been restocked.  Many of you purchased the product and I said I would post the pictures of the class.  All of the product used in this class was from Bella Blvd excluding the twine and cardstock.  We do currently have the items used in stock if you have not purchased it and would like to do the layouts.  The class was a single and double 12x12 layout.  Oh, and if you're wondering who that adorable little peanut is in the pictures, it is Alessia, a cute little girl that crossed my daycare!

Meet Sherry

Meet Sherry Meilahn

Hello, my name is Sherry and I am an instructor and associate at The Scrapbook Store.
My scrapbook journey began 15 years ago with stickers, card-stock and photos of my six year old!

Today I scrapbook very differently from that first layout, yet the reason I scrapbook has never changed because like you, I have a story tell. As a daughter, sister, aunt, wife, mother and grandmother, scrapbooking is my canvas filled with memories of the good times and bad, the funny and sad.  Each page is a chapter in my life that will someday become my legacy.

My style is linear and clean.  My go to tools are my Cutter Bee tweezers and my Basic Grey Magnetic Mat.  My favorite paper companies are October Afternoon, Basic Grey, Bella Blvd., and Cosmo Cricket. (based on the amount of product in my stash!) 
It would be difficult to scrapbook without my blending tool, distress inks and any form of mists.

Besides scrapbooking I’m an artsy person who enjoys altered art, artist trading cards, art journaling, card making and teaching classes about the above mentioned.

Color me happy and blessed to be part of The Scrapbook Store team.
To see what I've been up to and what I'm teaching, check out my bog here.

Meet Katherine!

Meet Katherine McElvain!

Hi there, I'm Katherine, and if you are reading this, then you and I have something in common...we love The Scrapbook Store!
I am so fortunate and honored to be part of the Scrapbook Store team and this hobby has become such an important part of my life. So what better way to tell you a little bit about myself in combination with my addiction to scrapbooking, than by peeking at some of my projects.

My favorite person in the whole world is my husband Ricky

Some of my other favorite people are the rest of my gang, being my 4 crazy, but wonderful kids.

Our family spends time practicing and playing sports,

celebrating milestones,

going on little adventures,

spending a lot of time at home,

and and trying to do all this while remembering the blessings God has given us.

Some of the greatest opportunities scrapbooking has laid in front of me is being an instructor here at TSS and becoming a Bella Blvd Artista. Because of the challenges I have been assigned as an Artista and an instructor my hobby has evolved, and I have discovered parts of the craft that I may have not otherwise tried. Most of what I scrap these days is done with Bella, and it is my favorite product line by far..

I've learned to play with Photoshop Elements.

I've stepped outside my comfort zone and have created altered projects.

And I have been lucky enough to have some of my creations published in magazines including Memory Makers and Creating Keepsakes.

I love the hobby because it is a social and creative outlet all at the same time. I have meet some great people, made some wonderful friends, and can share the hobby with my family. They even join in the creative process sometimes.

So no one can really complain about all the products I have collected over the years, can they? Because I intend them to be a gift for anyone who cares about my creations in the future. And if no one else wants what I have created I am hoping that when I am old and grey, sitting in my rocking chair, trying to remember the days gone by, I will be able to haul out what I have created to reminisce on the good old days.

If you want to see more of my projects and peek into my life you can go to my blog here
Thanks for taking the time to get to know me...I'll see you at the store!

Meet Donna!

Meet Donna Canzoneri!

Hi, My name is Donna Canzoneri and I started scrapbooking about 12 years ago and I have worked at the Scrapbook Store for almost 8 Years.  I started as a sales associate in the store and worked with a great group of girls and trained by several of the girls who have become dear friends to me.  One of the girls who helped train me was the one and only Stephanie Hunt from Bella Blvd. 
 I was then asked to teach the basic class.  I was very nervous to become an instructor but once I started, I got more and more comfortable.  After I completed a 3 year research project on my own family geneology I was asked to teach Heritage classes and I happily accepted, and have been teaching heritage classes ever since!! 
 I have since ventured into other types of classes and have been teaching classes every quarter there after. For example, card classes, layout classes and mini books etc... I also enjoy working the big events at the store like the weekend crops, kropping time krops, special events and make n takes.
A few of my favorite products are my Tim Holtz blending tool and my Marvy Punches.
A few of my favorite paper lines are Simple Stories, Echo Park, Bella Blvd, October Afternoon and Bo Bunny ( Love the shabby chic looks).
The best part of working at the Scrapbook Store is all the great friends I have made,  being able to help and teach all of our customers and to watch at how excited they get as new products are brought in!!
Below are a few pictures of my upcoming Easter class and a few samples of the cards that I have made.  Stop by and see me, I'm always happy to help!
