Let’s talk about scrapbooking

Filed under: Uncategorized — violettesscrapbookstore @ 9:45 pm

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 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 Scrapbook Store – New Stamps Arrival

Filed under: Uncategorized — violettesscrapbookstore @ 2:42 pm

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.
