Owner Update

As some of you might have heard, this show was much smaller than the previous 2 years. Chicago is normally this small. The Anaheim show is always the big one. Not so much this year. There were some big names missing - October Afternoon, Scenic Route, Collage Press and a few others. Don't worry - we did request catalogs and order forms from them.

I've been so busy trying to fill orders (til the wee hours of the morning) and get the photos edited, resized and uploaded to the CHA Gallery. I added a few more this morning. Almost done! Its always such a blur running from booth to booth and now I get to sit back and remember all the great things we ordered or are going to order.
Its great to see how different products from different manufacturers will fit together. Colors, patterns, themes.
Again, lots of animals. Butterflies and circus animals.

I had to take my son with me this week since I have no one to stay home with him. But he was excellent. We had to carry him (Convention Center rules) and no strollers were allowed. But they didn't say anything about rolling totes......



He had his picture taken at least a dozen times. I've seen it on various websites and blogs already.
And the new products are already rolling in. Making Memories new Spring line - Flower Patch is here. They have new acetate pages which look like a lot of fun. They are thin enough to be cut by any diecut machine (like the Slice) or with punches. And this line of papers does not disappoint. Lots of fun patterns perfect for Spring and Easter, embellishments that will wow you too. The cutest metal butterfly charms. So cute.

{ETA} We just received our shipment of new Technique Tuesday stamps. Get 'em while they're HOT! New Ali Edwards designs, page kits and more! All in the new section. Spend $35.00 or more on any Technique Tuesday stamps and get a free collector set designed by Ali. Picture coming soon.

Speaking of MM, we almost won a Slice. My mom wore her Slice apron and we finally got our pictures taken. MM had a wall of pictures and then every hour, they would pull a photo off the wall and that person would win a Slice. I thought that cute face would win us a Slice - but it didn't.

And it doesn't stop there. More new products are due in during February. In fact, EVERYTHING we bought was shipping in February so we changed some of our orders to make sure you get something fresh and new each month. Look at this stack of catalogs to go through and file!
Don't forget today is the last day to upload your layouts and cards to the Sketch Gallery. You can see some of the stuff you'll be winning in the Giveaway Gallery - yes, thats just SOME of the stuff we brought home from CHA. We have the entire new collection (all 4 lines) from Basic Grey. They haven't even shipped yet - but you can win them. Just keep an eye out on the contests this month. I promise you won't be disappointed. And the Valentines Contest runs through 2/14 so you still have lots of time for that one.

Orders - we are working our rears off to get everything pulled and shipped no later than this Sunday which means the last of the boxes should go out Monday morning. We are filling them in the order they were received. If you have any questions about your order, please email us at admin@yourscrapbookstash.com

Also, if you want to order the new MM Flower Patch and your order has not shipped, we can combine them for cheaper or free shipping. Just send us an email or make a note of it in your order.


Design Team Gallery - these poor girls have been neglected by me this month. They've been uploading so many great things and I'm just now seeing them. Between CHA and the Birthday Bash - its been one crazy time around here. So look for a gallery recap from me this weekend.

Post a comment on this post for a chance to win a little something from us. This is the last comment giveaway of the week. I'll draw names and announce them tomorrow. And I noticed that a lot of you had questions or comments for us so we'll be going through those and doing a Q&A kind of thing.

I'll be back with more from CHA, but for now, I leave you with a link to the CHA Gallery. Enjoy all the new stuff and inspiration. Its all coming soon!
