Scrappin' Good Times Blog

Archive for the ‘Creative Cafe’ Category

Trish, Gilbert, Art and Vivina have been busy bringing more stuff over from their storage unit.  That place must have been packed!  I turned around from working at the register this afternoon, and the side wall is covered with a bunch of scrapbooking bags from a variety of companies.  And remember the old Creative Cafe?  The tags and chipboard shapes, etc.  There was a bunch of that stuff over there, so they brought it to the store and Lizett was busy packaging that up today for the dollar bins.  We also have some 12 x 12 frames on the walls for sale too.  I know there’s more, but I didn’t even get to see it all.

And Michelle made some more of those cute little chocolate holders for the holidays.  They flew out of there last weekend, so don’t miss them this weekend.

Get it before it’s gone!


Ok, better late than never. Here is the what we’re making tonight at the Creative Cafe. CreativeJan24CreativeJan24

So, if you’re in the mood to make a short trip in the rain, come on down and enjoy yourself at the Cafe with Heidi!

Drumroll please!! Our Creative Cafe was unveiled this Saturday. Make sure you come by and take a look at all the goodies!


Look at all pretty papers and lots of fun felt and chipboard shapes. Don’t get me started on all the different colors of buttons!


Trish had fun showing everyone all the fun goodies!


 Let the Make N Takes begin!

We will be having weekly Make N Takes and fun projects for Happy Hour every week!

Check back here on the blog for updates.

O.K. No one saw me!… I think.

I secretly took a few pics of the Refrigerator Magnet Make N Take that will be unveiled Saturday for the Grand Opening of the Creative Cafe;)

Shhh, Don’t tell anyone, I don’t want Trish to find out.


Creative Cafe Refrigerator Magnet Project

Creative Cafe under wrapsCreative Cafe under wrapsHave you seen the new area up front that is currently under wraps?

Rows of bins, like a candy store filled with tags, chipboard, felt and buttons with coordinating ribbons, rub-ons, papers and dies.  Couple this with an Art Bar, a permanent place for you to sit down, get inspired and create!!  Are you drooling!   Join us for our first Happy Hour Make & Take. We will be creating an Uber-Cute Refrigerator Magnet using a variety of Accucut flower dies and paper, tags and buttons from the All New Creative Café Spirit Collection..   The cost is only $5.

The Creative Café brings together four of the Scrapbook World’s most sought after manufacturers:

Creative Imaginations * Bazzil * Hampton Arts * Accucut

It consists of two color palettes…Lucky and Spirit.

I would best describe Lucky as fall colors, deep burgundy, gold, brown, teal and green.  Spirit reminds me of summer…bright red, blue, pink, orange and lime. 

Both are beautiful!

 Happy Hour!!

Yupp!! You heard me right…HAPPY HOUR!!  Every Thursday from 5 – 7 pm join us for Happy Hour.  We will create a different Make & Take project each week. Everything from Gift Ideas, Mini Books, Scrapbook Pages, Home Décor, Party Favors, Greeting Cards and More.  Creative Imaginations will send us recipe cards for projects designed by some of their hottest designers. Some times we will use their ideas and other times the Good Time Girls will design the projects.  You will get the best of both worlds.

This will all be unveiled this Saturday, November 10 at 11 a.m. SGT-CC3 

All I can tell you right now, is that when I showed the Good Time Girls what was under wraps, they went Ooooooohhhhhhhhh and AAhhhhhhhhhhh!
