Leagues Forming

Leagues forming

Are you a scrapbooker? Papercrafter? Cardmaker? Well, if you enjoy playing with paper, inks and scissors but never seem to find the time to set aside for yourself consider joining our Scrap-n-Craft Leagues for 'Scrafters.' We had so much fun last season that we're doing it again!

What's a Scrap-n-Craft League you may be asking yourself about now? Well, being a Scrap-n-Craft League 'Scrafter' allows you to say to your family "Oh, I'm sorry, I can't tonight I have Scrap-n-Craft League, see ya, bye."

It allows you to commit to scrapbooking, cardmaking or any form of papercrafting on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. Did you resolve to get more scrapping done this year? Challenge yourself to make your own Christmas cards this year? Being on a Scrap-n-Craft team helps you to make your goals. And - oh yeah - It's also a whole heck of a lot of fun!

Our weekly Scrap-n-Craft league will meet for five hours - from 4-9 p.m. Tuesdays for eight consecutive weeks. This league starts up Tuesday, Sept. 28 and finishes Nov. 16. This league is $85 per person for the entire season.

The bi-weekly league will meet the first and third Mondays from 4-9 p.m. beginning Sept. 20 and continue through Nov. 29. The fee for the bi-weekly league is $65. Fees must be paid in advance; there will be no refunds for missed meets but substitutes are welcome. It's OK to come late and leave early.

Scrap-n-Craft team members will enjoy some friendly competition while scrapping, cardmaking or papercrafting. Members can earn points by meeting a variety of challenges.

League fees cover:
your crop time and space
pizza and a beverage at each meet
10% off your evening's purchases (league members)
free use of the die center and Cricut cartridges

14-hour Crop slated for June 19

Join us for our next crop event from 10 a.m. to midnight Saturday, June 19. Gather up those unfinished projects and award yourself
some 'me' time to work on those in the company of friends. Our Saturday crops are adult-only and last for 14 full hours! You can use
our die-cut center to cut letters, shapes, cards, envelopes and more - we'll show you how to add those finishing touches or how to step
it up a notch. The coffee is always on and you can order out or use our mini fridge to store your dinner. Our crop fee is just $7;
pre-registration is required so give us a call (810) 225.9636.
