August announcements

It's August! We're two-thirds of the way into 2008 and still we wonder how did we get here so quickly?!?

We have several announcements for this month so let's get through them!

  1.  As of 1 August 2008, our business hours on Sundays will be from 11.30am - 6pm. Please take note since we won't like to know that you were eagerly looking forward to come by here after 6pm on a Sunday :) We do apologise for any inconvenience caused.
  2. GREAT news for all you Privilege and Scrapaholic members!! We will be introducing DOUBLE STAMPS DAY beginning this month! Yep, yep - for every B$20 spent, you will receive 2 instead of 1 stamp! A sure and fast way to complete that portion for that bonus discount!! Please note that double stamps will NOT be awarded to reserved items. (Please refer to calendar below for double stamps day)
  3. Those wishing to reserve items can still do so but for now, we will only hold items for Privilege members for no more than 24 hours, and Scrapaholic members for no more than 3 days. Again, we apologise for any inconvenience caused.
  4. Oh, HAPPY DAYS for HSBC credit card holders! You can now redeem your credit card points for vouchers at Shabby Chic!!! Ain't that awesome!!? Vouchers are now available in B$10, $20 and $50.

Oh scrap! It's Monday!

Hey everyone!

July is coming to a close and we apologise for the lack of posts. 

If you haven't already heard, the CHA Summer show have come and gone. Fear not for we have LOADS and LOADS of scrapping-licious goodies from this season lined up to hit our shores! Some as early as next week and we're soooooooo excited!!! In the meantime, look out for Scenic Route and Prima goodies THIS WEEK :) Though not from the Summer collection, who can scrap without them? ;)

On a sidenote, I know there's a few of you out there who have been waiting with 'long necks' for MM's SLICE machine. We were told that MM has now postponed its launch to October 2008. Yes, a tad bit later but hang in there! We will definitely give a shout out once they're launched right here at Shabby Chic!

Class schedules for August will be out shortly and exciting treats to come :)

Happy scrapping, everyone!

Up on display

The works of Sharon and Lia are now in our store on display!!! GORGEOUS!

Sharon's assignment was a pack of ATC cards and she's played with loads of techniques (which we are still trying to grasp in her loooong list of notes!) but she says it's all about playing with inks and "having fun!". Come have a look for yourself and we'll try our best to explain how Sharon did it! Just a warning that some of the products she's used won't be in store til next month. Sorry!

Lia confessed that she's not a mini-album person but she felt a great sense of accomplishment after completing this SEI 'Family' album. We're so proud of you too!
