Join us for some great retreats, monthly 12 hour crops and special events including classes by our local designers as well as guest designers. It's always FUN with these ladies.

Inspiration is all around us. One reason we all love retreats and crops is the inspiration we get from those around us. It is fun to bounce ideas off of each other and to see what everyone else is creating.
Look at this beautiful layout Carol Houston created using one of Ray's Laser cut-outs. Products can provide inspiration as well as the photos we are scrapbooking. I love all of the ribbons she wove around the photo.
Classes also provide inspiration through learning new techniques. The ladies at Rayline's retreat crated the "Lovely" pocket album that Cat designed using the Lovely collection by Authentique. Cat and Nanci provide lots of inspiration for us in the classes they teach.
Karen was working on the tags that go in the pockets of the album using her distress inks. Tim Holtz provides lots of inspiration for all of us through his wonderful products and the videos on his blog. Nanci shares her own interpretation of Tim's tags through her monthly tag class at the store.
I don't know about you, but pretty papers provide lots of inspiration for me. This collection from Adorn-it is full of possibilities. I love to see how I can use the papers with my photos and how to create embellishments from the papers.
