Private Classes at the Sassy Scrapper

I just wanted to take a moment to thank Miyuki and all my girls who attended the May Private Class. I always look forward to seeing you each month.

Take a look at the work they did during their class. It was a great day and we had so much fun.

If you would like to schedule a private class at the Sassy Scrapper get your people together, call the store during normal business hours and we would be happy to assist you with your gathering.

Look forward to seeing you in June.

Excited for June!

Hello all you Sassy Ladies!

Today is busy day here at Sassy for me. I've been working on some layouts and sassy cuts for y'all! Last night was the Teacher Appreciation Crop and we had seven sassy girls here croppin' til Midnight! It was such a nice thing to celebrate the end of the school year with these teachers!

We have a Memorial Day Crop coming up on Monday, May 30! So if you don't have anything to do, or even if you do, take some time to celebrate, by scrappin' away with us here at the Sassy Scrapper!

I AM SO EXCITED FOR JUNE! We have so many fun things planned, and of course, IT IS THE BEGINNING OF SUMMER!

Some fun things that we have planned are:

Wednesday, June 1st -- SENIOR DAY Workshop/Crop - this is the first Wednesday of every month where we celebrate Seniors! You also get 10% off of your purchase!!!

Saturday, June 4th -- LAYOUT OF THE MONTH (LOTM) - A year round program Sassy has for you to create 12 layouts a year! We supply the materials and layout, and you go from there with your creativity! ***We try to focus on a different technique every month, so you learn something new!*** If you're not a part of it already, GIVE US A CALL AND JOIN!!!

Sunday, June 5th -- Advanced Cards with Amy (these are the same cards from May) Her June cards will be later this month!

Friday, June 9th -- "CMA" Party Late Night Crop - I am so excited to be living in Tennessee now, because up here WE CELEBRATE THE CMA's!!! With cropping, BBQ (yum!), country music, and maybe even a live performance by one of our own sassy girls! :) I hope you all can make it! Don't forget your western attire :)

Saturday, June 10th -- Creating with COPIC - FINALLY a Copic class for everyone who is interested in copics, or just to learn new techniques on how to use them!

Satuday, June 25th -- Summer "Tear Bear" Class - JULIE has done it again! She has created the CUTEST tear bear . . . with a floatie tube around it for the summer! Come on and learn how to create your own tear bears!

Those are just some of the MANY classes that we are offering in June at the Sassy Scrapper! I hope all of you come to at least one. If none of these are for you, check our website, on the June Calendar for many, many more! I promise that one will be JUST FOR YOU!

Another reason why I love the month of JUNE (minus the cicaydas) is . . . it's FATHER'S DAY! The perfect time to celebrate DADDY-O's! We will be having a Father's Day layout class, as well as having different layouts/projects displayed in the store to help you create the PERFECT gift for HIM!

SO EXCITED FOR THE BUSY MONTH OF JUNE! And for Memorial Day, too! Hope to see all of you very very soon!

Show me your LOTM

It has been good to see so many of you today. I've looked at a lot of wonderful layouts. Great job ladies. LOTM is one of my personal favorites here at the Sassy Scrapper because we get to see the REAL you portrayed in your pages; your style your way. Thank You again for sharing the most wonderful part of your life with us, your memories.

** NOTE: **
For those of you who asked me for the quotes inside of the scalloped circles they are as follows:
~ with a Glance
~ in her Touch
~ through her Words
~ when she Smiles

Good Luck - Look forward to seeing your master pieces.

~ Julie ~


It is finally the first Saturday of the month; I've been waiting for several weeks just for this occasion. If you're a "SASSY GIRL" you know what today is ~ LOTM (Layout of the Month). Don't be late and don't forget to stop by the Sassy Scrapper TODAY, I designed this LOTM just for you ~ I hope that you will like it as much as I do.

So as you have figured it out this LOTM is MY design ~ yes I am a bit excited and can hardly contain myself. If I would have to wait much longer I think I would explode. IT's my very first LOTM design and I worked on it especially in honor of all who share their love like a momma.

Tear Bear "BUNNY"

Thank you ladies for making our Tear Bear "BUNNY" class such a success this month. I had so much fun learning this new technique and than sharing it with you. My heart smiled **BIG** when I heard that some of you took what you learned in class and shared it with your co-workers and friends. Great job - you made me proud.

Since it was such a great sucess I plan to do another Tear Bear class in June. I've already made a BEACH BEAR in a bathing suit with her inner tube and sand castle. She's at the store and waves hello to all who visit there. Come by and see her, she's so cute. Watch our web site sassyscrapper.net for further information and dates and times.

JUST a REMINDER: "Making Faces" Class is Sunday, May 22nd at 1 p.m.

I really look forward to this class and once again I'm so excited to share with you something else I've learned. I've been working on the techniques and the simplicity of these faces with my 6 year old son. He is loving it - Triangles, squares, circles and rain drops. If I can teach him to draw these simple whimsical faces I can teach you. It is easy as pie so come and try. What can you loose?

To reserve your spot you must call the store (615)898-0050. As always time and space are limited and you don't want to be left out.

Come see us!
