Here we come ....

The Great Lakes Mega Meet is coming to Novi May 5-7.

Scrap Tales will be there, of course, offering quite a few product lines including Creative Imaginations, Northwoods Rubber Stamps, Stampavie Stamps, Stampscapes and Silhouette America.

Laura will be offering demos of many of the products throughout the weekend and I'll be in the booth Friday and Saturday mornings, so be sure to stop by and say hi. We'll be in booth #435.

During the event, there will also be on-site album embossing, demonstrations, make and takes and so much more. You can crop during the day (for free), shop until you drop, enjoy refreshments, take photos of sample projects, get lots of ideas and so much more. It isn't to be missed!

For complete details, visit the official website, here.

You'll find discount coupons, information on classes (you can buy your tickets when you get there, as long as seats remain), special offers and more on the Mega Meet website.

See you there!

Accu-Cut Gifts

Did you know that Scrap Tales has a HUGE Accu-Cut die center?

There are envelopes and cards, boxes, frames, mini albums, alphabets and much, much more. All are available for your use at no charge -- as long as you buy your paper at Scrap Tales.

Accu-Cut dies can cut through chipboard, grungeboard, shrink plastic and multiple sheets of cardstock.

Here is one of the projects Candy recently created ...



The chipboard letters are from Maya Road. The dog tags are made with a QuicKutz (Now Lifestyle Crafts) die and metal adhesive paper, cardstock and Alcohol Ink. The stars are made with cardstock, a gold Paint Dabber and a QuicKutz die. The paper is from Creative Imaginations and the doily inside (under the cookies) is from Little Yellow Bicycle. It is all held together with Glue Dots.

The sample, minus the cookies, will be in the store soon ...
