Once we've reached 100, we'll draw names for a awesome prize pack of Bo-Bunny Flower Child papers and embelishments, some Prima, Maya Road and Jillybean Soup too!

Some April Dates to remember:

  • April 17th All Day Crop at the store. It's free and you will have access to all the tools in the classroom

We also have bi-weekly online crops. The Nook's awesome design team puts together some fabulous challenges and Heather runs a fun game of Bingo. For every layout, card or altered item that you submit for the challenges, your name is entered into a draw for a chance at one of 3 prizes. So be sure to come join us at www.thescrappingnook.ca

Wow! Spring is in the air!!

The weather the last 2 weeks has been awesome here in Southern Ontario -- even if it rained all weekend! I'm loving it! Soon it will be time to pull out the t's, capri's and fit flops! I can't wait!

The store has been a buzz of activity since the Grand Opening. It seems that there are boxes arriving daily! Some of the new items that have arrived include:

  • Little Yellow Bicycle - Clothesline

  • Bo-Bunny - Mamma-Razzi and Flower Child

  • Prima - Flights of Fancy, Rasberry Tea, Watercolor Rainbow and Shabby Chic lines

  • Staz-On inks in red, black, brown and green

  • A TON of new Prima flowers

  • Sassafrass - Cherry Delicious

I'm sure there is more, but there has been so much stuff coming in, I can't keep track! You can see everything we have in store and online at www.thescrappingnook.ca

I have to give a BIG thanks to Tara, Margo and Judi for all their hard work over the last couple weeks in getting all the product out so quickly and effiently -- and keeping the store looking great!

I am going to openly steal an idea that I just saw Jillibean Soup post on Facebook. I'd like to increase the number of followers to this blog -- even if I'm not the greatest at keeping it up to date!

So here's how it will work --> Become a follower. When we reach 100 followers, we will draw a name for the Bo-Bunny Flower Child gift pack with some Maya Road and Jilllibean Soup thrown in! So become a follower yourself - get your friends to become a follower and your friend's friends!

We hope to see you here soon! :-)

Thank You!!!

Thanks to all who came out to our Grand Opening on Saturday. Despite the not so great weather, we had a great turn out! As always, it's nice to have an opportunity to see some familiar faces again -- and meet some new people as well!

I was also very glad to have my parents here to celebrate the opening with me. My dad owned his own business before he retired -- maybe that's where I got the 'bug' from... lol Mom managed to get a few Make & Takes done, which was very happy about!

Thanks to all who sent flowers! I heard from many that they provided a lovely scent -- not that I'd know, since I was completed stuffed up! :-/ They will certainly be enjoyed!

A big thanks to Deanna who took some amazing pictures. You can see her slideshow by clicking the link below:

Be sure to check our online store for the 'Sale of the Day', which will be running from March 1 - 6th. Today's Sale of the Day is 15% off all Maya Road! We have a shipment arriving soon of all new MR products and we need to make room! :-)
