Fun week ahead!

There's a lot going on at the Playground this week....take a look!

Tim Holtz Summer Distress Ink set!
So far, these have gone out the door the day they come in, and I don't even get a chance to post about them.
These yummy inks will be arriving today, so if you want them, RUN...don't walk...to get your hands on a set! 
That Picked Raspberry looks so sassy and fun, we needed a bright green like Mowed Lawn, and I can never have enough aqua/teal/turquoise colors in my collection...can't wait to play with Salty Ocean!!


Not to eat, but to embellish with! These are great little chipboard embellishments that you adhere with foam adhesive. Use them just like you would a brad, but without the bulk. They go through the mail beautifully! They come in a wide variety of colors and patterns and the newest are scheduled to hit the store today....with Zebra, Cheetah, and Newsprint! (that's just a few...there's more!)

Week-long SALE!!

Yep....it's a sale....all this week...
Take 30% OFF

Easy Frame Demo

If you are still wondering about how these fabulous little gems work, stop by the store this week, I will be doing demos all week to show you how they work!
I love embossing folders, and I love how these Easy Frames have more than doubled my options for the embossing folders I already have.  Stop in this week and check them out...especially if you have a weakness for embossing folders like I have. :o)

More to arrive later this week

More from Bo Bunny's Camp A Lot line...more papers, embellishments and even a camper chipboard album. This is such a fun line for summer!

Basic Grey's PLUMERIA 
These should be here later this week, along with some great embellishments. I love purple, and have had several customers say they hardly ever see purple scrapping papers....well...here they are! I can't wait to see these in person.

It's going to be a fun week....so stop by...check out the new stuff, browse through the old stuff, and learn some new stuff. 
Can't wait to see you....and if I don't....have a great week!!!

Contest Winner announced and What's NEW

Terrible Tote Turned Terrific Contest Winner!!

I forgot to post the winner here on Saturday! I posted it to Facebook, but forgot to post it here. Sorry!

After a week of customers voting, we have a winner....Cheryl Webb, creator of Tote #4 (bottom left in the photo below)  had the most votes and wins the Bo Bunny "Enchanted" collection pack, matching rosette ribbon, buttons and seam binding. Congratulations Cheryl!!!

12 totes went out, but only 5 came back for the contest...and they all were awesome. Each one had something I loved about it...so unique and fun. You all did a wonderful job and thank you so much for participating.

Don't forget to bring your bags in when  you shop to receive your 10% off!!

Tuesday's Layout Class

Hello Summer from Echo Park

This is such a bright and colorful set of papers! Perfect for summertime fun.
Check out what Chelsea did with them. (she says she doesn't like them, but everyone that has seen them so far has loved them!)

Here are the details

Date: Tuesday, June 19th
Time: 6-9 PM
Cost: $20
Bring: Paper trimmer, scissors, adhesive and pop dots

New this week

Mix & Match 6x8 Album from Simple Stories

If  you are looking for a great way to do some quick and easy scrapping....this is your ticket!  The album comes with 15 assorted page protectors, 3 chipboard dividers and 8 heavy duty cardstock pages. If you need more page protectors, there is a variety in the store.
I really love the idea of this type of album, it seems like it takes a bit of the stress out of scrapping. I like having the layout basically right there for me, and all I have to do is decide if I'm going to use a photo, patterned paper or journaling in that spot.
I also love the cover...you can leave it as it is, cover it with paper or fabric, paint it, spritz it and embellish any way you like. I have already started mine, and covered it with some "outdoorsy" papers from Paper Loft (you gotta come check them out). We have a season pass to Bear Country and I have been taking pictures of the baby bears nearly every week. (I'm a sucker for a ~baby~ anything.) That's what is going in my album...tons of silly little bears playing their hearts out.

Bo Bunny's "Camp-A-Lot" papers are here...

and they are FUN! I adore the firefly paper. 

These are pretty fun, too.

These are just a few of them...come check them out!

See ya soon!

Last call!!

Last call for Terrible Tote Turned Terrific Contest
Bags must be turned in by 4 p.m. today to be entered in the contest!! Don't forget the great Black & White "Enchanted" collection pack is the prize for winning.
Even if you don't have your bag decorated for the contest, you can still bring it in when you shop and receive the 10% Discount. (ugly totes are still available for purchase)
Voting will start on Tuesday, June 5th. Anyone that walks through through the door can vote on their favorite. (only one vote per person, please) Votes will be counted at closing on Saturday,June 9th (4 p.m.) and the winner will be posted here.
Some had asked for a photo of the totes, so here you go. :o)

Tuesday's Layout Class
I couldn't decide if I should post pictures of the layouts or not, because the class is already full. (yeah, they are that fabulous) But, thought I would go ahead, because they really are cool and if there is enough interest, we'll just do it again!
The collection pack is from Authentique, called "Loyal"...and Chelsea really made these papers pop on the layouts she created with it. 
I really like the blue and green color combination and think it just aches to be used for Summer photos...picnics, camping, front yard, back yard, boating, fishing, swimming. The colors give you the "feel" of being outside (blue sky, green grass/trees) so they totally work for summertime photos. They are masculine enough for little boy pages, and big boy pages, too! So versatile and fun!

So anyway....the class is full for June 5th, but if you want in on the fun, we will do it again on Tuesday, June 12th.  Details are below.
Please contact me by Tuesday, June 5th if you would like to take this class. I will get more paper ordered and we'll do it again! (if you can't make the class, but would like the Collection Kit, let me know by the 5th also, and I can order some for you)

"Loyal" Layout Class
Date: June 12th
Time: 6-9 p.m.
Cost: $22
Bring: Paper trimmer, scissors, adhesive, pop dots.
***Please contact me by Tuesday, June 5th if you are interested in doing this class so I can get the paper ordered*** Call 721-7529 or Email scrapandplay@rushmore.com
Oh...here are the layouts...I almost forgot to add the pictures!

They are so fun! I love them...could look at them all day long. :o)

What's new?
Well, let me tell you! There are some new dies from Lifestyle Crafts/QuickCuts.... a nesting paisley die set and a Berry Container set.

Normally, I wouldn't have been too excited about a paisley die set, but then I saw what was being done with them...then I was hooked! Birds! How cute are these birds made from the paisley dies? I love them! Here is a great blog post on how to make them, and check out the great wedding card made with them, too!

Here is a close-up of the Berry Container. 

These are soooo easy to put together and make a great way to present a gift to someone special. I decided to fill mine with candy from Zoom Soda & Candy (it's awesome having a candy store right next door!) One of my birdies decided he wanted to nest in my container. :o)

That's all I have for now, "peeps"...take good care and have a fabulous weekend!!
