Robin, I just bought a set of hexagon dies, 6 sizes about 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inch. Do you want me to bring them and the cuttlebug on Saturday? You could try more of those cards

Just wanted to pass on some info. 31 is having an outlet sale for 1 day, there are so many cute items for sale and lots and lots of their totes. The large utility totes are regularly 35.00 and are on sale for 14.99. Their totes are great for carrying your scrapbook supplies to and from your crops or can be used for just about anything.


Google 31 outlet sale 2013 and you don't have to use the consultant that come up, if you have one choose them or change it to someone in your area.

Try the address below that will take you to the page, On the page, you will notice the banner on the site. I use a consultant by the name of Amy Tillemans from Wilmer MN


https://www.mythirtyone.com/170029/

It is kind of tricky, I just copy and paste it into google and it pops up.

Let me know if you still have problems

Just checked out the expo prices online, and it's $10 at the door, $8 online in advance (through Weds), and I saw a note that Scrapbook Too has tickets for $7... so might want to buy them now. Doors open at 8am or some crazy early time like that - so what time do you want to meet and who is going? Reminder here's the link.

I think Sat. depends on what everyone else thinks. I have a 5k at 9am so wouldn't be able to be out there until around 11:30. I would kinda like to see it, but not sure that I want to spend that much to get in.

Brent's kids arrive Saturday, and are here for two weeks. So I'm not able to get together until after they go back to Atlanta.

Do we have anything scheduled for August yet?

Hey Angel... when you get back tomorrow will you post a review? We are trying to decide if it's worth the money to buy a ticket to shop.

Good luck with your volunteer job!

Angel texted me today and said it wasn't worth it... mostly older stuff and all the same. I saw similar theme on the expo facebook page - only 18 booths, expensive, and people not buying anything... I say skip it.

Some people were buying lots of stuff. I spent $2 on some stickers that are ok. Won a door prize $20 gift card for a booth and got 3 plastic stencils to use with sprays. (kite stencil brand?). Came home with $38 from working there. Mostly stamp stuff, dollor items, sizzex. I didn't see any name brand scrapbook stuff or new items. Some booths with premade page kits. So other peoples styles, not what you guys do. I was looking forward to spending the money I made but that didn't happen. Was going to buy some sizzex framelits that were buy one get one 50% off but small selection so I decided not to.

That's what I was thinking I would do. Went the other day when it was 40% off stickers and embellishments and got some more letter stickers (just what I needed!) and a few other things. mom came with and bought it for my birthday early which was even better! So now we need to find another date to scrapbook.

I can't scrap next weekend, but I am open the weekend of the 10th and the 17th. Paisley and Deanna are doing Scrappin and Chattin the 17th; or we could do Archivers either of those weekends if anyone is interested? I can't the 3rd or 23rd and the 30th is Labor Day weekend... so let me know what works.

Angel - we could all and check at Pine City for an overnight, or we could do a hotel the weekend of 16-18th out near Scrappin and Chattin as I know you wanted a mini weekend before school.. I am up for either.

How about a Friday night crop on the night of the 9th at Archivers? Anyone interested in that? would that work Angel?

I am planning to go the Scrappin and Chattin the 16th/17th, anyone want to join us?

Any other ideas? Anyone have any new thoughts, or new people want to join us? I know there are many other MN Peas - come on join us!!!

I could come on the 9th, it would be good to see folks again! We are going on vacation from the 16th to the 25th, which does a fine job of knocking out two August weekends, but hey, I'll have a lot more photos to scrap!

What are y'all thinking about ScrapFest coming up in September? I'm not seeing a whole lot that is super compelling about the classes, too many cards for me. I have decided, though, that a Tim Holtz class is on my bucket list, LOL, so will be angling for one of those at registration opening for sure. Any interest in signing up for one of those crops as a group? Or is the $45 price point to o high? And finally...w as that button always $20? I had a little sticker shock on that!

I had a wonderful time at the Scrapbook expo and purchased a few items that I could forsee using in my layouts. I also won a 20.00 gift card in which I bought lots of embossing powders to add to my supply. One of the venders had paper for .25 if you bought 40 which was not a huge problem for me to do, and the same vender had cling stamps for sale for only $1.50-2.00 per package. I was even able to find some deals at another vender that were selling things pretty cheap during their early bird sale. There were some venders that were just overly priced and you could get a better deal online or at local stores. We also did one of the make and take cards from the Michaels table and recieved a 50% off coupon for their store in which we just had to go and use it afterwards. While talking with the staff, they did say that since this is the first year that they expect the following years to even be bigger. As far as the number of people there, it didn't start getting crowded until we were ready to leave. I will be putting this on my list of places to attend next year.

The kids are here until the 11th, so I'm not free until after that. I'm up for Archivers after they leave.
