All of you Twilight Fans (and NON-Twilight fans too) are going to LOVE the new Pink Paislee Twilight collection that arrived in the store this morning!!!!!!

Along with that we received the Amber Road collection-it makes me want to put on a cozy turtleneck sweater and sip some hot cocoa (or an Irish Coffee) whatever your preference may be *haha*! Regardless of your beverage of choice, you will absolutely CRAVE both of these collections, they are irresistable! Stop by and see for yourself, you won't be disappointed, I promise ;)

In addition to these sweet new paper and embellishment lines, we also have laser cuts back in stock. Some of which include: Long Beach Island, Down The Shore, Disney World, Long Branch, Ocean City, and many more!

Just Arrived in the Shop Today!

We were so excited today when the UPS man came and delivered a package full of goodies to the Shop today! There's nothing better than HAPPY MAIL to start your day off right!

Stop by and check out the new Sassafras Lass Me Likey line, so bright and fun and colorful! I can't wait to dig into this and make some layouts. Until then, I will just keep staring at it....LOL!

We also received some goodies from Crate Paper, one of my favorites. Their papers are just so soft looking and pretty. Even the new Orbit Line somehow makes aliens look "pretty"!!!!! If that is possible.

Last but not least, back by popular demand, some K & Co. Girl Scout papers and embellishments.

So, stop in and see us soon to check out all of the great new stuff!
Until then, Happy Scrapping!
Hugs, Nora Anne & Colleen

Breaking Free!

When I saw the Breaking Free Collection from My Mind's Eye, I fell in love with it! Growing up at the beach and being crazy for the summer and the ocean, there was no doubt that I was head over heels for this line! A lot of our customers have recently been asking for it too, which made it a NO BRAINER! We had to have it!

With that said, The Breaking Free Collection is ordered and will be on it's way to the Scrapbook Cafe in the next couple of weeks. I don't know about YOU but I can't WAIT!!!!!

We will send out an
to let you know as soon
as it arrives!
Until then, Happy Scrapping
and get your beach pictures
ready for
the arrival of this
awesome line!
Hugs, Nora Anne & Colleen

Rainy Day and Some Out of Town Guests

I woke up this morning to a RAINY day and I am not upset about it in the least. Colleen is running the shop today, Luke is at daycare until noon which leaves me with a precious little thing called "free time"....AAAAaaaahhhhhhhhhh!!!! Free time to put a dent in my to do list :) So, what are you doing on this rainy day?!

Yesterday we had some customers that came in speaking another language. I didn't recognize it and when I asked them they said they were from Switzerland. It turns out they are here vacationing in the U.S. for three weeks, staying in Atlantic City. I asked them how they wound up in Tuckerton and they said they found us on the internet! WOW! I was pretty surprised to have out of town guests that found us online all the way from SWITZERLAND! Pretty cool :) After visiting with us, they headed next door to One Little Spark to check out the Copics! Those markers are addictive to me :) and if you've never been in there, it's a stamper's dream!!!!

If you're looking for something to do on this rainy day, remember we are running a sale 30-50% off almost everything in the store!!!! We are busy making room for new arrivals! FUN STUFF!

As a reminder, our next all day crop is scheduled for August 15th from 10am-10pm. We still have a few spots left, so call to register if you'd like to attend (609) 296-3032.

Look for some new classes being added to our calendar SOON and.......

We also have some exciting news to announce soon in regards to our Design Team so......STAY TUNED!!!!!

I'll leave you with a photo of the new print we will be hanging in the shop soon! I am a huge fan of Elsie Flanagan's and when I saw this in the Red Velvet Art Shop, I just had to have it!!!! Going from a career in the health insurance industry, to being partners with my sister in our own scrapbooking store is definitely a NEW START! An awesome new beginning for which I am so grateful!

Have a Happy Thursday

A Day At the "Beach".....

Well not exactly, let me explain in further detail. Colleen and I are here at the shop today painting. Well, she is painting and I am doing other things, such as updating our blog and website, moving things around and placing orders.
So, I got off track for a minute, let me get back to the title "A Day at the Beach". When we took over the Scrapbook Cafe, we decided one of the first things we wanted to do was paint just to give the walls a fresh new look. The colors we decided on were "Sand Dune" for the walls and "Swimming Pool" for the accents. The look we are going for is tranquil, peaceful and beachy. From the looks of it so far, I think we are achieving that, but it's hard to envision with paper racks, ladders, tables, chairs and all kinds of other stuff in the way! I have a feeling it is going to be a long night here since we need to finish painting and then get everything back in place to re-open tomorrow morning.
Speaking of which, when we open tomorrow morning, (Wednesday August 5th) we are having an inventory reduction sale to make room for some great new products we have coming in! Some of which include: Pink Paislee Amber Road and Twilight lines! Brand new CHA Summer releases are currently on order and we are (im)patiently waiting for them.

Stop by and see us soon, check out our new look (a work in progress as I'm sure we will not finish everything in one day)! and take advantage of our sale 30%-50% off select items! You don't want to miss it :)
