Garage Sale Donations


Right after our garage sale, I received this email requesting a donation from the leftover items from our garage sale.....

We work with children who have mental health/ behavioural concerns. These children live full or part time with us to receive treatment. During this time we try our best to document their life experiences so that each child receives a scrapbook for them to take on to their next step and share with loved ones.

This felt like the perfect fit for the scrapbook items needing a new home.  Jessica stopped by the store yesterday to pick up the boxes and was brought to tears by what she received.  She said that these items are going to make such a difference for the center and for the children who benefit from their services!!

Today she sent me this......

On behalf of the staff and children I wanted to again thank you for the lovely donation, everyone is so excited to take our Life Books from ordinary to extra special. Life Books are made for each child in our residential program. They solidify all the special memories that the children share during their stay with us. These Life Books travel with the children so that they can continue to add and remember those people that have had positive influences in their lives.

Thank you to everyone who donated their leftover scrapbook items!!!  They will be put to good use.

Our 'First Ever' Garage Sale is This Weekend!!!!

Our 'first ever' garage sale vendors have been busy organzing and purging their scrapbook supplies!! Our crop room is FULL of all sorts of items.....pattern paper, tools, punches, stamps (and more stamps), albums, storage items, cardstock and lots and lots of embellishments. All this at 'garage sale' prices. It is every papercrafters dream!!!!

We will be transforming our crop space into a huge shopping area. We will organize all the supplies into sections for easy shopping, but we do anticipate that it is going to be very busy!!

Read below to find out all the details for our 'first ever' garage sale event!!

- The sale will run on Friday, June 19th, from 5pm - 9pm and again on Saturday, June 20th, from 10am - 4pm.

- Our store will be closed on Friday, June 19th, from 4pm - 5pm to prepare the final details before the sale starts!!

- We will have 2 cash registers open to serve you as quickly as possible. We accept CASH ONLY for garage sale items. If you are purchasing items from our store, you must line up at the regular store register, as they will be processed separately.

- All items are FINAL SALE. Two Scrapbook Friends gift certificates will not be accepted as a form of payment for items purchased at the garage sale.

We have some shopping baskets available for your shopping convenience, but we encourage you to bring along a cloth bag incase one is not available for you!! We ask that you only put items in your bags/baskets that you intend to purchase.

We also politely request that you be kind to one another and our staff. It is going to be a crazy, busy time and everyone wants to take advantage of our garage sale. There are plenty of great deals for everyone. We will be doing our very best to serve everyone as quickly as possible, but please expect there to be line-ups and wait times.

We look forward to seeing you on Friday and Saturday!!!

For All My Silhouette Fans!!

This post is for all my loyal Silhouette fans!! Many of you have taken my Silhouette Sketch Pen workshop and we frequently discuss what types of fonts to use when wanting to use pens instead of a blade. I thought I would share some of my favourites.


Keep in mind that these are not 'single line fonts', but they are thin fonts, that if you are using them small enough, they look like they are single line.  Most are great for journaling.

I usually go to dafont.com and search the names for the fonts and download from there.  They may or may not be available there, you will have to search good ole 'google' and find out.  Be sure to remember to only use ttf fonts.  Also, not all fonts are compatible with the Silhouette software, so if you experience problems, then maybe that is not a good font to use.

Have fun playing :)
