These are gift card holders with style. Linda our teacher/stamper has come up with some beautiful ideas for gift card giving. I think my favoirte is the the tree card holder. All items we are showing you were created by Linda using stamps we have in stock. Color with color pens, copics or tombows. Stop in the store they are on display.
Our Christmas open house that was held on the 13th of November was fantastic to say the least. Thank you to everyone that attended. We had over 300 guests. The moment you walked in the door you could smell the fresh baked cookies. We baked over 600 cookies that day (no leftovers!) All the employees had on red socks – yep no shoes – Just for fun.
Our staff put togeter 5 different make-n-takes and we had 3 demos on the floor while you waited for the make-n-takes in the class room. Here are some snapshots of the day
Hi everyone Violettes had their monthly stampclub and we wanted to share some pictures with you. Did you know we have over 90 members in this club. Linda has decided to use Stamps by Judith in our next meeting and we just received approval from them to carry their stamps. It is not easy to become a retailer for them. We had to submit photos of the inside/outside of the store, many documents, but that’s ok with us because we know they are going to have a good home. Be sure to visit our new website: Violettesscrapbookstore.com for our calendar.
One of the cards completed in class.
Judy and her group from Orlando that are in our stamp club brought some great ideas to share so we are going to share with you. We do carry the animal stamps.
and one more Thanks for sharing Judy.
Grunge look – inks – tags Oh my!
Do you love TIM HOLTZ? We are going to have a class on Tim Holtz style. Did always want to learn how to make the grunge flowers, what inks to use with what – distress or alchol. How about crackle paint. You will learn it in this new class. This will be Tim Holtz 100% from his stamps to his emblishments. Girls you will want to sign up for this one early!!!! You will have plenty of time. We have allowed 3 hours per class. You will be making 4 Christmas tags. There will be 2 classes first is at 9:30 am the second will start at 2:oopm The pictures for this class will be posted tomorrow. I will blast it on the email system as well. Class is scheduled for Saturday October 2nd. The cost of the class is $32. You will be gaining a lot of knowledge and having a lot of fun with Bonnie. So call the store at 83 644-0801. Sneek peek is below:
Tag on the left is a sneek peek for the am class the one on the right is for the afternoon. Yes each class makes a different set of tags. So yes you can sign up for both. I would say the one with the flowers is a little more advanced.
Violettes received a lot of boxes this week and for a split second while I was sweating from the heat I thought about Christmas. Yep Christmas. The vendors are already knocking out the emails showing up little sneek peaks of fall and winter. I will tell you that we did order all the the G45 Halloween release. That’s the picture you see. Many of the stamp vendors are rolling out things in August and the Scrapbook manufactures I am meeting within the next week or so. We of course will have a fun event planned for Christmas.
We also started working on our design for our annual pirate event. Sorry can’t share that idea. It’s a secret until we are ready to roll with it. I will contacting the other stores and we will be setting a date for the next event.
We hope you visit the new website www.Violettesscrapbookstore.com there you will find our calendar and other misc. things. We hope to start downloading items for sale within the next two weeks. That’s the plan.
Hope everyone is well and that we see you soon. Thanks to everyone for the wonderful comments we have been receiving regarding the store and the website. It means alot.
Violettes recently received a new shipment of stamps – We just received The Cats Pajamas, Stampendous and Savvy. I am very excited. My great sales rep Gary just told me that he has picked up the line Kaiser Crafts – one of my favorites so watch for this to arrive in a couple of weeks. We also ordered a yummy display of Flower Soft which includes the new utra fine colors. It is my understanding it has shipped so give it about a week to get here. We will blast it when it arrives. Oh and we ordered extra polar white to get ready for the holidays – did I just say holidays yep here we go again. Above is a great picture from the gallery of the Cat’s Pajamas- designer Tracy Falco. We will have more samples in the store soon. Linda and Betty are working on some of our masterpieces.
Violettesscrapbookstore.com finally has a blog. We are in this major learning curve so as we develop so will the site.
