During my recent trip to CHA (the Craft & Hobby Association) the current trend was easy to spot.  Shiny is definitely the new trend.  It is all about metallic, foil, glimmer and glitz!  Almost every manufacturer had something to offer with glimmer, sparkle and shine. Lot's of ordering was done at CHA, and the new products have already started to arrive.   It is always exciting to share the latest and greatest with you, our crafting friends. Take a look at some of the shiny new treats that have already arrived...  

Think Wink of Stella, then add metallic!

Wink of Stella have been popular since the day they arrived in store.  In fact we couldn't keep the most popular colours in stock. Well now we have the metallic version of these amazing brush pens available.  Be sure to try out our sample brush on your next visit to Scrap & Bean


3D stamping paint full of glittering goodness has new colours added.  More delicious colours to add yet more sparkle and shine to your next project.  All colours are in stock including these newest!

2 New papers also have glitz with foil.  Foil dots, stripes and highlights are all the rage this winter and into the spring lines as well. Not only with mixed media products but also in beautiful scrapbooking paper lines. Anna Griffiths newest paper line "Juliet" is romantically filled with roses and hearts, then topped off with dots of gold.  Just imagine the projects that will be created with this feminine and romantic line. 3

What a great group of women to share a class with!

class photoThis concluded our classes for 2014.  What a great year it has been!  I love that we are able to host classes, as it is another way to share our passion with you....our friends and fellow crafters!   While it is a little sad to think this is the last class of the year, there are already lots of classes planned for the new year.

In 2015, Scrap & Bean is offering a monthly scrapbooking class using the Graphic 45 brand of papers.  Specifically this collection called "Time To Flourish".


This stunning collection is suitable for each month of the year from January to December.  As soon as this line was published I fell in love!  Ok, I will admit, I have an ongoing romance with Graphic 45 papers.  But this collection literally speaks to my creative heart.  Just sit down with this paper in hand, and the ideas begin to flow.   2-page scrapbook layouts have already been completed for the months from January to May.   These are being offered at Scrap & Bean as monthly scrapbooking classes.

Join us for one class, or for all 12.  No membership nor club required.  However, those that are registered for the January classes will have the first option to save their seat in the future months.

The first class for January sold out so quickly that a 2nd class has been offered.

To register for the January class click here. 

Classes for the future months will be available for registration on January 18th.

Here is a peek at some of the upcoming classes in this Graphic 45 Series:

Hope you will join us for this series of scrapbooking classes through 2015.
