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!

This is a inspiration congratulation Scrapbook N Such. I would love to take a class taught by Graphic 45 staff. G45 has a great design team!

Love the tags. I make the tags for my presents. Made one yesterday - it had an owl because my friend is an owl fanatic.

Congrats to Scrapbook N Such! Both for winning and for offering open crops and classes. Fabulous way to build a community, as well as capturing the history of that community. G45 is amazing!

Precioso trabajo y preciosos papeles de Bohemian Bazar.

HOw lucky to have such a lovely shop to dream in (and fill up a shopping basket). Love the store tour and the tags today.

Love it love it love it!! Oh the store looks heaven!! Too bad there's none here in the island that carry G45 papers :( Thanks for the chance to win :) *finger crossed

Cute tags, love the colors! Thanks for sharing.

Maiko's tag is just crazy beautiful! She amazes me!

Looks like an amazing store!!

Love the tag, wish I had a scrapbooking store close.

Look at those stunningly beautiful tags! Fantastically fun!

Wonderful interview and fantastic tags.

Congrats to Scrapbook n Such! I used to shop there when I lived in Wichita Falls and always enjoyed it. It does my heart good to see they are still in business. Congrats again, well deserved.
Love the tags too!

What wonderful crafty and artsy projects ! But - where can we find the adorable little white fairy shown on the Bohemian Bazaar tag ??!! She is so pretty !! I need some of those !!

Absolutely love the tags. Thanks for sharing the new store.Lanna

Love this post! How fun to see what a mom n pop store is doing! And wow, are they having fun with graphic 45 merchandise, or what?!?! Classes and hats and pictures, oh my! Thanks for giving us an inside glance of a lovely store and some FANTASTIC tags!!!!

I keep seeing these tags being used so I think I will have to grab some so I too can play. I don't normally like bright bold colours but I just love the Bohemian Bazaar papers and have used them and they look amazing. Just wish I could win!

Cool store! Congrats Ladies!! I wish they had a location in the Dallas/Ft Worth area. You would think we would have a place like that to go to. I love Graphic 45! It is one very special paper company that produces gorgeous papers. These papers make creating layouts, household décor and so many other paper crafts fun and beautiful!!

Would love to play with some Secret garden.

The only difficult thing about crafting with G45 papers is actually cutting into the beauty. Secret Garden is one of my faves!

Wish it was here...What a great store! I know where I'd be spending my time and money. For now I'll just keep trying to win some of these wonderful G45 products!

Wow such pretty things..Thank you for the chance

Well done 'Scrapbook N Such', what a fantastic store, I wish I lived nearby, it must be fantastic.

Beautiful tags. Like many other posters, I am sad that I live 4 hours away from a LSS. One of the ones that has managed to stay open in the Phoenix area is being taken over by quilting supplies and while I love quilting, I am saddened to see the scrapbooking side getting smaller. Guess too many companies are going under and/or scrappers don't scrap any more.

Awesome store! I also love The Beehive in Toledo, OR. Beautiful tags!
