The new Inky Antics Christmas Board also arrived and we will post a photo soon, but believe me, it is adorable! All sorts of cute critters dressed up and ready for Christmas – cats, dogs, cows, penguins, frogs… even a moose! You are going to love it!

The red HoneyPop paper is also back in stock and ready for your Christmas and holiday cards and projects.

The December issue of Scrap & Stamp is here, too, loaded with lots of ideas for the holidays.

Shop Hop Update

We now have the Shop Hop tote bags and ticket books in the store, so if you are interested in joining this fun event please stop in and sign up soon. If you have no idea what I am talking about, check out the info here – Shop Hop.

Also, this will be the first year that we will not have our annual Open House/Stamper’s Day, due to the Shop Hop event. This event spans 2 weeks during which we will be open extra hours, so we have decided to forego the Open House for this year only. We hope you all understand and we hope to see you during the Shop Hop!

New Impression Obsession dies are now in stock! Halloween and Christmas dies came in last week and they are awesome! I’d love to post some photos, but their website seems to be MIA at the moment, so I guess you will just have to stop in and see them in person Smile.

We hope everyone is enjoying this lovely Autumn weather and we hope to see you soon.

The Carolina Shop Hop…coming soon to a stamp store near you – Stamper’s Alley!

FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER...

The Carolina Shop Hop!

October 16 - 27, 2012

Get ready for a road trip! You will have the time of your life with your stamping and scrapping buddies! Scrapbook Creations is coordinating the first annual Carolina Shop Hop.  It begins Tuesday, October 16 and runs through the end of business on Saturday, October 27, 2012.

Shop Hop Ticket Holders will receive:

  • a detailed ticket booklet with each store's information pertaining to the Shop Hop
  • a cute tote bag with the Shop Hop Logo
  • a 20% discount at each store. The ticket booklet will clearly outline any exclusions, if any, for each store
  • a free Make ‘n’ Take or a Take ‘n’ Make (take it with you!) or a special gift
  • additional sales at some stores

There will be additional opportunities for great prizes (and a GRAND PRIZE) for those Shop Hoppers who visit numerous stores. See details below.
Tickets are only $15 each and quantities are limited. Right now you can reserve and pay for your ticket at one of the stores listed below. Ticket booklets and tote bags will be available by mid-September.


WHAT ARE THE DATES AND TIMES?

The Shop Hop begins on Tuesday, October 16 and runs through the end of business on Saturday, October 27, 2012. That gives you twelve days to SHOP HOP!
Each store observes different hours. Your Ticket Booklet will contain detailed hours for each store. Some stores are adding hours during the Shop Hop. Carefully check Sunday hours, as only some stores are open on Sunday.


HOW MANY STORES ARE PARTICIPATING?

ELEVEN STORES are participating. There are four stores in North Carolina and seven stores in South Carolina!  Below is the listing.

You may reserve your ticket at any of the above stores. Right now reservations are being taken at all stores. Payment of $15 is due at the time of reservation. There are only 300 tickets available - so act now!
If you won't be at Scrapbook Creations to pay in person, just call us, pay by Credit Card and your name will be on the list. If you want us to mail your Ticket Booklet and tote bag, just add $2 per ticket and we will gladly ship it to your home!
The actual Ticket Booklets and Tote Bags will be available by mid-September. You will be able to pick them up at the store where you reserved your ticket. This will be known as your HOME STORE. Read more about your Home Store in the article below.


IMPORTANT DEFINITION...WHAT IS THE HOME STORE?

Your HOME STORE is the store where you purchase your ticket. Read carefully about the prizes, as some are related to your HOME STORE. 


WHAT ARE THE SPECIAL SALES?

In addition to the 20% off your purchase (with limited exclusions at some stores), stores may be offering additional sales and promotions. The Ticket Booklet will provide details for each store. 


HOW CAN I WIN PRIZES?

There will be two (2) drawings at each store.  Customers who purchase their ticket from that store (their Home Store) and visit eight or more Shop Hop stores during the Shop Hop are eligible for the drawings.
Each store will have a drawing for a special prize PLUS each store will have a second drawing for a Sizzix die, compliments of Sizzix.
TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR THESE PRIZES, you must return your ticket stub to your HOME STORE (the store where you purchased your ticket) by the close of business on Wednesday, October 31, 2012.  The drawings will be held at the convenience of each store.


THE GRAND PRIZE DRAWING
Must Visit All 11 Stores During the Shop Hop!

There will be a GRAND PRIZE DRAWING held at 12 noon on Monday, November 5, 2012 at Scrapbook Creations. 
Every customer who visits all eleven stores will have one entry into the Grand Prize Drawing. The GRAND PRIZE is an Anna Griffin Bucket Tote (donated by Notions Marketing) filled with Sizzix dies (donated by Sizzix) and other crafting goodies! This will be on display at Scrapbook Creations and will be posted on our website when all items have been received.


HOW WILL MY HOME STORE KNOW THAT I QUALIFY FOR THE DRAWINGS?

When you visit each store, BE SURE to have the store personnel stamp the Store Page AND the Entry Form at the front of the book. You will be able to keep the many pages of information about all stores. 
You will be responsible for returning the Entry Form at the front of the Ticket Booklet to your HOME STORE by the close of business on Wednesday, October 31, 2012.  Return your entry form to your HOME STORE in person or by mail.
If you choose to mail your entry rather than deliver it in person, you may want to request a Delivery Confirmation or tracking from the US Postal Service.
For those who visit all twelve stores during the Shop Hop, your HOME STORE will submit all names to Scrapbook Creations by Friday, November 2, 2012 close of business. 


ANY OTHER QUESTIONS?

This is a lot of information! I bet there is at least one question! Just email us at Scrapbook Creations with your questions and concerns!
