UPDATE: For any of you searching for a local scrapbooking store in Red Deer, we still currently do not have one as of January 2016. I get questions about this, so thought I'd update this post in case you are searching the net on where to shop in Red Deer. We only have a Michaels and then private distributors like myself show sell Close to my Heart and Stampin' Up.
I host many classes and events in the Red Deer and the Central Alberta area. To see what's new, follow me on Facebook at Personal Touch Scrapbooking.
This week has brought some huge changes for scrapbookers in Red Deer. With very little notice our major scrapbooking store, Scrapbooker's Paradise lost their lease and are now closing their doors as of August 18, 2012. It is always sad to see a local store close, but even more so when you have a "family" of staff and customers that are so close.
I do want to let everyone know that I will be continuing to teach classes from my home and at Scribbles and Giggles in Rocky Mountain House. I will have new classes posted periodically here on my blog under the classes tab and on my FaceBook page. I am also on Twitter, YouTube and Pinterest so there is lots of ways to see what I have coming up and stay in touch. You can click on any of my links on the rights side of the page to take you to my different social media sites.
I have a weekend retreat booked for November 16-18 (see events tab for details) and I still have some spots available for that.
I will also be hosting an open house in September so you can see the fall classes in person and visit with some scrappy friends.
I won't be going far and would love to stay in touch with all the great friends I've made at the store! We have such a great group of ladies I hate to see that come to an end. If you have product questions, class inquiries or you just want a scrappy chat :-) You can contact me by email at email@example.com or by phone 403-348-6342.
Upcoming classes I'm teaching:
Playing with Distress Markers at Scrapbooker's Paradise (either August 7 or 8). See class tab for details.
Summer Memories Mini Album August 11 from 11-3pm at Scrapbooker's Paradise. See class tab for details.
Intro Copic Class with date to be announced (it will be a monday night in August at my home studio).
Altered Canvas class Sunday, August 19 1-5pm with possibly more dates to come at my home studio.
Fast and Fabulous Card Class at Scribbles and Giggles August 23.
I will post more details, dates, costs, etc in the classes tab as soon as I know more.
Thank you all for your patience as we transition through this very sudden change. If you have and ideas or requests for events, crops, classes, etc. please email me. I always love to know your ideas and have everyone's input.
