Stores who taught these special classes were also entered to win Graphic 45 contests, including the chance to win the grand prize, an in-store event taught by Graphic 45 staff!

About Scrapbook N' Such:
We opened in
2001 and are a family-based store. We have expanded 3 times in 12
years thanks to our great customers believing in us, without them we
would not be the 8,000 sq ft store we are now. We offer weekend
retreats, crops, classes, birthday parties, and more. We are not just a
scrapbook store (that is why the "N SUCH" was included in our name 12
years ago to enable us to sell invitations, home decor, mixed media and
supplies for quilters). We also house a Photographer, http://mistydoyle.com and have a hubby and kids area in the store. We offer OPEN crop anytime during store hours.
Beautiful Graphic 45 products and projects on display inside Scrapbook N Such!
Here's a fun interview with Scrapbook N' Such! Learn more about this wonderful and inspiring store!
1. Scrapbook 'N Such has been taking part in our monthly Place in
Time classes! How many Graphic 45 classes do you teach a month? What
type classes are these?
We teach 4 classes each month using the G45 product lines (2 card classes and 2 layout classes).
2. How do your students like the classes? Do they have a good time?
love the classes our numbers have picked up since we started doing the
G45. It makes our teachers happier since the G45 design team does all
the hard work coming up with the class projects and sends them to us
along with detailed colored instructions...as we have to do it COPY it
and we are done....so easy, so fun and we love it.
3. You won our grand prize - an In-Store Appearance by Graphic 45! Were you excited when you saw you won?
were so excited. Each month during the 4 classes we tell the ladies to
pray and think positive that we will win as we take the monthly group
photo. POWER of being positive! G45 is one of our very best product
lines we sell in the store and it is displayed near the front door for
all to see and fall in love with too. We have our store design team
doing various layouts, mini books, and home decor using each G45 product
line and its all on display at the store with the G45 products.
4. Are your students excited?
Yes. Some have already purchased some vintage hats etc to wear when G45
is here as we are going to set up a photo booth area where the ladies
can have their pictures made with G45 staff along with their friends
etc. We are so excited to make this a fun event for all.
5. You offer great classes at your store. Do you think offering classes keeps your store's community strong?
Classes are what make our store successful. Everyone is on the run
and so busy now a days...they love coming to a class to learn something
new and different and walk away from class with a completed project.
We can't wait to join Scrapbook 'N Such for Make 'n Takes, a fun workshop, and yummy barbecue! It will be a blast!

Alberto used pretty paper layers, a few fussy cut elements, pretty ribbon an adorable photo to give this tag a heartwarming look. This would make a wonderful gift!
