Chat with Meredith Croswell over at “Scrap-A-Bit” and you’ll find a spot brimming with creative ideas for any occasion. I noticed on my recent visit that there is always new techniques introduced.
Back by popular demand, for instance, is paper piecing. “In this class, we will complete a rosebud,” Croswell noted. “But you will receive a bonus pattern for an open rose, perfect for a wedding or Valentine page.”
Croswell also offers tips on how to take a better photograph, everything from portraits to landscapes. “All you have to bring here is your notebook and we will go from there,” she remarked.
Another highly-requested class is how to journal.
“Many people complain that they do not like to journal because they don’t know what to say,” Croswell said, adding this class will cover it—and more.
Croswell also welcomed Danette Nixon on staff at Scrap-A-Bit, who comes with a background in stamping and scrapbooking, and many years of experience in retail business.
“She has created some wonderful scrapbook layouts and has promised to help guide me in the stamping area,” said Croswell, so keep watching for stamps, stamping supplies, and classes.
Scrap-A-Bit also is planning some specials in conjunction with Spring Fever Days coming up April 18-20 in Emo.
And National Scrapbooking Day is scheduled May 3-5. “Watch for upcoming details on this event,” Croswell said.
