Last week was our Scrapbooking Garage Sale and it was a HUGE success. Our wonderful customers brought in some great treasures to sell. I guess I shouldn't say "some treasures", I should really say A LOT of really great treasures. We had tons of great deals to be had. We also had a great turnout of buyers as well. I think each one of our sellers were happy with the amount of store credit they received. We boxed up what was left over and took it to a couple area teachers who were both thrilled with the donation. So we just wanted to say thank you to everyone who participated. It was a huge success and we couldn't have done it without any of you!

To say thanks, we're giving away a mystery prize pack. Just leave a comment on this post and you'll be entered to win this prize. The contest will end Friday, July 3 at noon. Check back later this week for sneak peeks of the prize pack.

Also our Creek Bank Creations Club Kit for July will soon be available. Here's a little sneak peek of what it has to offer.
"Book'em Danno"

This is a famous qoute from a TV show I used to watch as a child. Hawaii 5-0. I enjoyed shows like 1 Adam 12 and Chips as well...what does that say about me...I'm not sure!
In today's post, I wanted to show some of the chipboard products I design and sell at Creek Bank Creations. Our chipboard is heavyweight you can paint on it with Making Memories paint or use Tim Holtz Distress paints. (love those little botttles). Let me just share with you the fun designs!

Papers Are JilliBean Soup

This is our best selling book ever. Funny thing is I designed the book to fit in a recipe box ..and when the pages arrived they didn't fit so we turned it into a book!

The Binderie punch Artists' series!
It's RED and it's HOT but not for long! Our Gypsy Friends have transformed their Binderie Punches from 'Little Red Hotties' into mini works of art!

They have the entire scrap-booking world playing with the hottest tool in bookbinding.
Some of our favorite friends have altered their 7 gypsies Binderie Punches to reflect their artistic style.

Who knew you you could cover it with plum blossom branches like Heidi Swapp (above) or transform it into a Cosmo Cricket mini toaster complete with cover!? (below)
We invite you, our Fellow Gypsies, to...
Spend some time exploring our Galleries to see these funky, fabulous Binderie Punches. ( click here to see ALL of them in alphabetical order).

We had many requests at the show for more products from Chatterbox and 7 Gypsies!
We will have the Chatterbox Fabulous by the end of the week!

Chatterbox also has two fun new products. The album stand:
The stand can hold all styles of chipboard books. I love this thing! Can hold lots of other goodies too!

I have to take home the Denim Album from Chatterbox and make something for my son. This little dude measures around 5"x7".

Watch next week for 7 gypsies new paper line to arrive!

And now some news.................

We are open on Friday with many of the Chatterbox items arriving then! We are also getting in many new skus in the sports line, Disney line and more!

Don't forget our rummage sale is June 19-20 here in Muncie, Illinois. You can register to sell your old scrapbook supplies, come and shop or stay and crop. We have many gals bringing stuff to sale so I'm sure there will be bargins! This is a great opportunity if you are a girl scout leader, sunday school teacher, day care provider or 4-h leader to pick up some great stuff for your kids! If you know of a person who might NOT be a scrapbooker but be interested in some bargins please help us pass the word! Find more details on the site here!

We offer a customer referral program for our local customers. (just ask your referral person to let us know about the referral) Refer a customer to us and you receive $3.00 in bonus bucks. You can spend the bonus bucks in our store like cash on merchandise. Libbie Brandt and Tracie Turner both have bonus bucks waiting for them in the shop! Refer a friend and get rewarded!!!

Provo Craft announced last year it would be changing it's focus and direction. They are basically only going to be manufacturing tools from now on. This means the entire Coluzzle line is being discontinued. There are a limited number of products left in the line that we may be able to get for you. If you are wanting extra swivel knives or replacement blades, or templates email us at We will get you a qoute and let you know what is available. For many of us who learned to cut circles with the Coluzzle this is a sad day. It is still the shape system I use to cut circles, sooooo my dear would be great if you could post and let us know what you cut circles with that you like!

Keep Scrapbooking!

I just wanted to give you a quick update on our new products...

We now have 13 shades of Bazzill Dotted Swiss Cardstock. I can't tell you how much I love this stuff. So fun to use! Check out this layout I did with 4 different shades.
For more details on this layout (or any of our other layouts or projects) Check out our Layout and Book Sample Gallery on the website.

We also have some brand new Jenni Bowlin products. We have 3 different styles of the Chipboard Buttons, Mini Bingo cards, Birthday and Patriotic. These are so cute.

We also have some other styles of Donna Downey's Canvas Tags. Some of the other Fabric Album Accessories are now in stock as well.

Julie & Tom are in Arlington, Texas at the Great American Scrapbook Convention this week so the rest of us are holding down the fort at the store. We will be open on Friday from 10 am to 5 pm. The crop room is open for anyone who's interested, sign up on the website here or just give us a call. We've been having a great turnout each Friday. It's been a lot of fun for us to visit with everyone while we're working!

Just a reminder-
We've had several people sign up for the Scrapbook Garage Sale on the 19th and 20th. Even if you don't have stuff to sell, you might want to make it a point to come and shop. Sounds like we're going to have a really good assortment of stuff to offer! I'm sure it's going to be a lot of fun!
