And now it's time to get to know one of our fantastic stores, Scrapbook N Such! They are an incredible store and they recently won a Graphic 45 in-store event through our Place in Time class contest! Every month we send out newsletters to our stores with amazing Place in Time project sheets and classes they can teach in their stores! It's a great way to bring G45ers together to learn fun techniques, work with our beautiful papers and Staples and take home a marvelous handmade treasure. 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! These classes were a big success and we want to thank all of our incredible shops for participating! We continue to offer this amazing program and another chance to win a Graphic 45 in-store event! The drawing will take place in January, so you still have plenty of chances to enter.  Lets get to know our grand prize winner, the amazing shop Scrapbook N' Such in Wichita Falls, Texas! 

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.

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?

STUDENTS 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?

We 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? 

YES.  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!

And now it's time for some joyful craft inspiration! We wanted to share some sweet ideas for pretty tags that are sure to make you smile! Tags are so fun to create and they have so many uses! Here is Alberto's adorable Mother Goose tag. Both of today's beautiful tags were made using the Graphic 45 Regular Tag Album Staples which are just perfect for tag-making! 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!

Always LOVE the G45 blog and the inspiration!! THE BEST!!

Love Love Love the tags. Wish I would have gotten BB now I've seen some cute things made by the DT. I don't love bright colors is the reason I stayed away from that collection but now I'm rethinking my decision. I can't wait to get my hands on all your new collections they are awesome.

This store looks like such a fun place. Wish we had something like this in our area.

the more I see the tags the more I love them...this is so very cool; the vibrant colors of the Bohemian Bazaar will brighten any day!

I wish I had a neat scrapbook store like that near me! I have to travel 30 miles to get to one.
Beautiful little tags. Bohemian Bazaar has to be the most cheerful collection ever! Love the little fairy!

Congratulations Scrapbook N Stuff!
You really think about your customers and serve them well! I do so wish you were closer or that we had a store like yours nearer to WV! Well done!
Love the tags, today - especially the rainbow! How beautifully cheerful!
TFS - Julie

Would love to have a store like that near me. Finding Graphic 45 is hard here.

What a cool store. Why don't they have ones like that around here? The tags are adorable.

looks like everyone had fun! love the mother goose page with the little boy!! cute cute!

wish i was there right now

Simply beautiful tags! So inspirational!

Looks like a fun shop, too bad I live in Michigan!

Congratulations to Scrapbook N Such! It looks like a fabulous place to play and shop! And I love the tags today - lots of fun to make.

What a fun store! You should check out my favorite local store For Keep Sakes in St. Louis! They do a lot with Graphic 45 also.

Beautiful tag. The store is a paradise.

Those girls (staff and customers) at Scrapbook N' Such are so lucky. Most of the local scrapbook stores here in Columbus, Oh have closed and right now I don't have anywhere close by to participate in such an awesome G45 class.

I would love to have such a store nearby .

The tags are so bright and colourful . thank you for sharing .. thank you Graphic 45 for all the inspiration.

Great tags!!

Congratulations to Scrapbook N Such what a wonderful prize .. fantastic tags today too .. they are gorgeous!

The Bohemian Bazzar tag is absolutely gorgeous. I am really liking the bright colors in that line!

I think Scrapbook N Such such go nationwide - we would welcome them with open arms!!! Love the tags - Love Graphic 45!!

wow looks like a great store and the tag project is great thanks graphic 45

Thousands of miles away for me boo hoo

Scrapbook N Stuff looks like a fun and inspiring place to shop and scrap. Great tags today!

If Only they were in Houston! Great tags! TFS

I wish we had a store like this in north east England

Wow! Love the look of that store. Wish it was over here.

Would love to have a store like that around here? Have to travel to all of mine and they carry some paper collections, but what about the rest of it! Lovely tags too today :)

That Bohemian Bazaar is just so bright and cheery! Love it :)

Congratulations to Scrapbook N Such! What an honor to have G45 staff teaching a class in your store! Have a wonderful time!!!!!
Love Alberto's Mother Goose tag! So fun!!The Bohemian Bazaar tag by Maiko is eye-catching! Love the bold colors and the fairy (?) is the perfect addition!
Thanks for sharing and I will see you tomorrow!

See you @ Scrapbook N Such on 7 Sep. Hope I can find a hat by then. LOL

I like the store. We need that here. The tags are great. I always learn so much on g45's website. Thanks for sharing. Have a great day.

I'm glad to see some of the local scrapbook stores making it. So many have closed. Best of luck to you! Great tag, Alberto, thanks!

Now why can't we have such stores in the south of England?? Great tags... TFS :))

Love this store, wish it was near me. I travel over two hundred miles to get my Graphic 45 fix. They order what I want and I make the trip to pick it up. It is a local store and not a big box store and I like to thing I'm helping them in these times. If I was younger I would love to own a scrapbooking store and carry Graphic45 lines, but I live in a small town and don't think I would have the base to make it work. I really love the tags today. Thank you for the inspiration!

I sure wish this store was close to me!
I love the tag!!!

LOVE LOVE LOVE the tags!!!
Thanks for sharing. I'd LOVE LOVE LOVE to finally win something!

I just the colors of both collections, makes it easy to be creative.

How great to be able to choose from such a great assortment of Graphic 45 products. I love the smaller paper and scrapbook stores. Next time through Wichita Falls, I must stop by and visit.

The store looks fabulous!! Congrats on having Graphic 45 come and visit, that is a dream come true!!! Love the tag! Alberto's work is amazing!!
