Congratulations Jenn and Lee Anne!! I will have your magazine next time you stop in! ;)
Bring it with you to the store on Saturday, July 26th and get 30% Off all of the regular priced merchandise you can fit inside it!! (Doodlebug and QK Silhouette are excluded) Don't be fooled, that bag holds A LOT of stuff!! If you don't have one of these totes yet, you can get one for only $4.99! Use them on every trip to the Turtle to save on plastic bags or use them to go to classes and crops!
The rules are simple, you must have a tote bag and the merchandise must fit inside the bag to qualify. One bag per person.
See you there!! :)

We had a chance to see some of the city on this trip. Took the L train to downtown, walked some of the Magnificent Mile, and visited Navy Pier. Navy Pier was by far my favourite, even though Hannah wouldn't ride the ferris wheel. It was a fun day - although it was REALLY hot.
I am being yanked from my chair so we can go back to the room and look through catalogues and make some plans. We have classes at 7:00 in the morning. No rest for the wicked!!!!

We also have a Pizza Crop happening on Friday night. Come get creative with some of your friends in our great air conditioned crop room. The crop goes until midnight or later, so come play.
I better get back to getting things ready for the sale. So much to do!!
See you this weekend.

That's not the only thing that happens tomorrow. Hannah and Lori are winging it off to Chicago to attend CHA. Who knows what trouble Bev and I can stir up around here while they are gone. I mean, there has to be room for all the new stuff they are going to be ordering, right? Hannah won't have a chance to read this so I should be safe. If not, oh well...
Better get back to work on the website. We have a great selection of QK dies that need to be marked down ... not all of them but there is a good list for great prices!

They also have 2 new goosebumpz - one zebra texture and one giraffe texture. Even cooler than these two awesome textures is their super awesome promotional price!! Get the 2x2 goosebumpz for only $4.99 and the 4x4 goosebumpz for only $9.99! This is a special promotion for these two new textures only during July!
We are so excited about this new release and we can't wait to see the rest of the July release at CHA! Hope to see you this weekend at the QuicKutz Anonymous Class! Are you a member yet??

Next week Hannah and I are off to CHA and we will be looking to bring in some more new goodies to enhance your pages and some new class ideas to spark your creativity as well. We are on the lookout for the sneak peaks and can't wait to see what the designers have planned for the fall and winter.
If you are a QA member - check the forum or your email for the list of materials needed for this weeks class. I promise it isn't a marathon - this time!!!!!!!!
There are some classes planned for later this month as well - a card class and our first "Mom and Me class" so be sure to check out the last newsletter for those details. Also don't forget the draw we are doing for free gas.....because it is still worth the drive to St Jacob's!!!

While you are here you can take a look at the new QuicKutz dies. The June dies are finally here. The July ones should be arriving shortly. We also have some new Just the Edge from Bazzill and have restocked some of the more popular colours of cardstock.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.

The Record is running it's annual Reader's Choice Awards. This week they are looking for nominations in various categories, including favourite craft store. The form can be completed once for each e-mail address.
We still have some space available at our crop tomorrow night, and for the Pizza Crop on Saturday as well. Each crop costs $10 and includes pizza and drinks. Bring your stuff (or shop for some of the wonderful new product we have now) and get more of those pictures taken care of.
More Squeeze tools should be arriving this weekend. The special price of $29.99 will be ending on July 15, so if you haven't taken the leap yet this might be a good time to do it.
It doesn't look like today is a good laundry day so it's off to the mall before getting down to those online images.

July is off to a start with a bang here. With a large quantity of boxes expected this week we are moving things around today to make room for all of it. We still have some great deals in our Sidewalk Sale area, but they won't last long. Hannah added some stuff to it again yesterday.
Today also marks the start of our new promotion. You already know how friendly we are here. It's worth the drive just for that, but we've got added incentive for you. Not only do you get great prices on your summer scrapbook supplies (and more are arriving each week), but for every $25 you spend in the store (sorry, this one isn't available online) you will receive a ballot for a chance to win a $100 gas card. Should you win it, it's almost like we paid YOU to come visit us. If not, you've still had a chance to come enjoy our cool, sometimes downright cold, store, wander the village, pick up some baking and maybe have an ice cream cone. We have one other small condition - you must be a Canadian resident. You don't have to come in wearing red and white, but the gas card must be taken as awarded, and is not valid outside Canada. We don't like to put restrictions on things, but unfortunately we have to on this one.
I'll let you know later this week as the new stuff becomes available in store and online.
