Happy New Years

Happy New Years!!!!
Scrapbook 911 hopes that 2010 is one of your best years ever. To help get the new year started out right, we are having a sale on Friday January 1st between 10:00 am and midnight. Everything (well almost) in the store is 30 % off. Classes, kits, gift cards, and clearance items are excluded. PLUS, like last year, we will accept Target, Barnes & Noble and Best Buy Gift cards since someone didn't know what you really wanted. Why are we doing this? Because Mike doesn't want to count it and he doesn't want to pay property tax on it. Did you know that according to Bexar County property tax records, Scrapbook 911 has more inventory than all the other stores? Our New Year's resolution is to continue to bring you the very latest and greatest scrapbook supplies.
To help you get back to the important business of cropping, on January 2nd, we will be having an all day, no frills (or food) crop between 10:00 am and midnight for just $5. Reservations are required so be sure to call us at 210-492-1984. AND we will be having our Sunday evening Coffee & Crop between 6:00 and 10:00 pm on Sunday the 3rd.
You might have noticed things are starting at 10:00am. That's because that is when we open for our winter hours starting January 1st. Closing hours are the same, 6:00 pm on Sunday, 8:00 pm Monday through Thursday and Midnight on Fridays and Saturdays. Even so, Scrapbook 911 is still open more hours than any other store in South Texas.
As always, we have great classes scheduled for the New Year. Tami's Mom & Me class has expanded to two sessions. SO has Jennie & Carrie's Totally Tim class.
If you are starting to plan the year, we have a number of ALL DAY CROPS scheduled for the year. We also have two transplant (garage sale) dates scheduled and tables are available for both.

We have quite a few new Christmas classes coming up. So if you are needing something for someone for Christmas and don't know what to get them, come take one of our classes from our wonderful instructors. We are having two different soldering classes now. It is a simply soldering 1 class for beginners and a simply soldering 2 class for advance. This is being taught by Carrie Avery. Angela is teaching a cute garland class with graffix 45 paper. This class is getting filled up fast. Tami has outdone herself again. She has made an altered Christmas book. She has opened her class to more people. I am calling all the people on the wait list so you may want to call and get in on this class. Carrie and I teach a Totally Tim class. We are going to have two classes on this. We have grown so big (which is a good thing) we have decided to have two classes. You will see this start happening in January.
Don't forget we have our GUEST DESIGNER TEACHER "Debby Schuh" coming to our store Dec 7th. She is teaching two classes. These classes are filling up fast so if you are interested please call us and sign up asap.
I will be posting lots of pictures of these classes soon.
