What a Fun Weekend!

We had a busy and fun weekend with the talented Debby Schuh. We had a full house all three classes and created the cutest mini albums. Although they were mini, they had room for a ton of photos and journaling.


Debby's Friday class - #bigideas#littlebook

Thank you to everyone who spent the weekend with us. We appreciate your support and friendship. A special thanks to those who traveled to town to attend class. It is always a treat to meet new friends and introduce you to Paper Crown. We hope you were pleased. Hopefully you girls who took all three of Debby's classes got a well deserved rest on Sunday. you probably dreamed of measurements in your sleep.


We started early Saturday morning with the Day at the Seashore album
Last but certainly not least, a special thank you to Debby for traveling to Oklahoma- in the heat- and teaching for two straight days. You are so much fun to have at the store and we all learn so much after a visit. You inspire us to look at the everyday in a " holiday" way. I hope you are still resting after your marathon trip home. Debby left OKC at 3:45 on sun and arrived in Buffalo at 2 a.m. That's  a true friend!




What a great way to end a fabulous weekend- The Storyteller Album
 
Thanks again Debby and we can't wait until next year!

A Full Weekend

What a great turnout we have for Debby Schuh this weekend. Just a couple of spots left in each class so if you have been thinking about it, time to make the jump! It sounds like it is going to be too hot this weekend to do anything but stay in the AC so join us in a class or two.

For those of you enrolled in one or all three of Debby's classes this weekend I wanted to remind you to bring your supplies and especially your paper trimmer! You will definitely need it and be very frustrated if you forget it. I have two at the store but you don't want to have to wait on a trimmer. We have a Crop a Dile at the store for those of you who do not have one.

Here is a reminder of what you need to bring for each class....

It's a Birthday Party!

August is our birthday so we decided what better way to celebrate than with a birthday party- a Birthday Soiree- to be exact. Mark your calendars for Saturday, August 16th and come join us for a fun day of birthday festivities.

Bobbie is know for her soiree extravaganzas and this one will be no exception and she has talked Jackie into joining her in the celebration. Jackie and Bobbie will each be teaching a surprise project- it's no fun to see your presents ahead of time. In addition to the two projects and all supplies, light breakfast, lunch and of course a few presents and surprise treats are included in the cost.

Space will be limited to the first 24 so don't hesitate. Cost for day including two projects, snacks, lunch and surprises is $75. To sign up call Paper Crown at 405 848-2389

Almost Maxed Out

We have almost maxed out on the number of students for the Debby Schuh weekend this Friday and Saturday, July 25th & 26th. There are just a couple of spaces left in each class so if you have been on the fence, it's time to jump over on the fun side! Not only are these the most adorable mini albums ever but also such informative classes you definitely do not want to miss.

If you are crushed you absolutely can't make any of the classes, all isn't lost. Kits are available for all three classes and include everything needed to complete the project along with detailed instructions and photos.  It won't be as fun as class but you won't totally miss out.

 

This is a perfect opportunity for a girl's weekend, gather a couple of girlfriends (not too many space is limited) and enjoy an evening or day of crafting, treats, laughter and go home with the cutest mini album. If you are from out of town and have been looking for a reason to make the trip to OKC and Paper Crown, here it is. A little get away, some fun classes and discounted shopping in one of the south's best paper arts boutiques- it's all GOOD!

 

  Have we twisted your arm enough?! Don't wait too long, the spaces are filling quickly. To sign up for a weekend class or to get a kit, call Paper Crown 405 848-2389.

Just In From NY

 
Look what the postman delivered today. The sample for Debby's third class, Story Teller album. This album is sooo cute you all will love it. the pictures definitely don't do it justice but really are more of a tease for the real thing. Debby is so clever, a paper engineer of sorts.

Debby Schuh Part 3- Story Teller Album

Leave it to Miss Debby to leave Oklahoma with a grand finale- I think she saved the best for last! Debby's final class for her " Debby Schuh" weekend (we all need a weekend named after us) is the Story Teller Album using the newest line from October Afternoon and that adorable new 10 x 6.5 Heidi Swapp album. Debby taught the Storyteller album last weekend so I do not have the sample in the store but I know without a doubt, it is fabulous and you will all be oohing and aweing over it!


 
 
 
StoryTeller Book
designed & taught by Debby Schuh
 
Sat., July 26th
2:30-5:30
$65
 
Don’t you love it when someone says, “Tell me about the time…” - who doesn’t love a good story! You have stories that only you can tell, and this album is just the place to write those stories down. Just like a good book that you would get from the library to read over and over again, your StoryTeller book will be a treasure-trove of your “tell me about” stories.

Using the whimsical new Public Library collection from October Afternoon mixed with the nostalgic new Open Road collection from American Crafts, we will make a storybook filled with lots of places to tuck your stories and include your photos. The new Heidi Swapp 8” x 6” binder album with three different styles of horizontal page projectors will be the base of our book  - we will alter some of them and make your book an interactive scrapbook for writing, photos, and mementos.

You’ll have several papers to choose from for your book cover and, of course, can use your book for anything you want – it would make a great place to record your favorite books or to use as a school album or even a travel album. Your kit includes thirteen sheets of 12x12 papers, 4 stickers sheets, stitched borders, Miscellany die cuts and buttons and ribbons and the album – it’s huge!
 
 
 
It will be a very fun weekend and perfect for those of you who have never scrap booked but want to give it a try- on a smaller scale. Debby is a fantastic teacher and will walk you through with her Power point and very detailed written instructions and for those of you who have been scrap booking for years, I promise you will go away with several new tricks and techniques that will enhance your albums.
 
As an added incentive for those of you thinking of making a weekend of it and traveling from out of town, I will have a special welcome gift and an additional shopping bonus if you sign up for all three of Debby's classes. 
 
Disappointed you aren't going to be able to make it, all three of Debby's classes offered that weekend will be available to purchase as kits. All the materials are provided along with detailed written instructions. There really isn't a reason you have to miss out on the fun!
 
Classes are filling so I wouldn't think about it too long. To sign up simply call Paper Crown at 405 848-2389.
