More Inspiration

Wow, Jackie has been busy. All of her layouts look great. It is inspiring me to use more of the patterned papers from the store. Here is another layout using the We are memory keepers Hoopla paper. We would love to see everyone elses layouts that have been completed with patterned papers from the store. So just bring them on in.


Hey, just a few recent layouts I thought might get your ideas flowing!!!  
We have all the patterned paper and cardstock in store to complete any of these layouts and more.  Please stop out anytime to see some of the cool new products and projects we are excited about!!!  Also don't forget 10% off Chipboard and ribbon cards on August 15!!!  
We have tons of new 'hockey' scrap supplies and loads of new paper kits to choose from.  
Planning for retreat?  
Stop out to pick up the newest page kits and supplies before they are gone.  
Some of our supplies cannot be re-ordered, so are first come first serve.   
Hope to see you soon.

Recipe Swap

Anyone up for a recipe Swap. If you have not heard about it or joined already here are the details. The cost is $12 for the basic supplies, which are your pages, album covers and binding wire. The album size is 8 x 8 and the theme is Sweets, desserts, candy, squares, etc. You will be required to create a 2 page layout and then duplicate it 9 more times, which means 10 of the same 2 page layout. You will also decorate your own covers. We will take the first 10 people who sign up. Currently there are 4 spots left. When you have completed your pages and covers you can return them to Jackie or Stacey. Once we have them all in we will put the book together and bind it all. Here is my layout just to give you an idea.

Also with summer here, there is no deadline for completion. Feel free to contact us if you need more information.

Thank you

Just wanted to thank everyone who joined us for our Grand opening. We had a great turnout and a lot of good feedback. For those who signed up for the Recipe exchange we have got your supplies together, so you can come and get them anytime. If you haven't signed up for the exchange, or haven't heard about it, there is still space so let one of us know if you are interested. Got a new order this week including the new White Out Hoopla and Frenzy paper by We are Memory Keepers, a small supply of Doodlebug Flock and a lot of Doodlebug Jewels, and a whole new stock of rub-ons including Maya Road(black and white), and Swatchbooks by Creative Imaginations. Also, anyone interested in the new line of Cricut cartridges coming out in June/July please let us know as we can pre-order so we are the first to get them!!! We will not carry them as stock, so please pre-order by the end of the week if you want one. Thanks, Jackie.

It has taken me a while to figure out how to shrink my pics so they would download quickly, but I think I finally got it. Love my Hubby, but my new computer is driving me nuts!!!! Anyway, there are just a few sneak peak pictures of a few items we have is stock already, and we should be getting a couple more orders next week. Didn't want to give away too much, so there is plenty more to see when you come in on the 10th!!! Please feel free to leave comments/questions on the blog as well. We will need your feedback to be sure we are on the right track!!! Any ideas or requests would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jackie.

Grand Opening!

May 10th
We hope to have a fair amount of supplies by then, and will have a few future project ideas to share. I am working on a great tin album that I hope to be done by then, and I know Stacey has some new toys to show you. I have tried posting pictures of our 'store', but it seems to take forever, so you may have to wait until you come come out to see our little 'store'. I will keep trying.
The following is some information you may find interesting or may have been asking yourself about how Barnyard Scrappin' will be run.
We are going to try to put together a few more crops in the next few months, but will mostly run on a phone-in/order basis to start. We both have busy family lives, as you do as well, so at this point we will be concentrating more on these types of things. If we find you guys have enough interest for us to have specific hours of operation, we will try to come up with a convenient time to have store hours. PLEASE feel free to phone me anytime you are scrappin' and need a specific item, or you just want to come out for coffee. I know I am always uncomfortable phoning and inviting myself to someone's home, but my home will also be our store, so I hope feel like you can phone me. I am home most of the time. Drianne has already said she will be out every Thursday morning starting in September when her son Josh goes to Junior Kindergarten, and I would be thrilled if she did!!! If you have time to come out for coffee just call me, I am only 5 minutes out, and would love the company!!! We will be trying to put together orders on a regular basis, so please ask us if there is something you want. If it is an item we have or would be able to get for you, we would be thrilled to work with you. Our pricing will be less than the 'city' scrapbooking stores...gauranteed!!!! Some items will be substantially less!!! GST will also be included in all our prices. We are pretty confident we know our prices, so we want you to feel confident as well. We are not planning on making a million dollars, just helping you make a million memories!!! I hope this answers some of your questions, but we hope to see you on the 10th to answer any more you may have. So please drop by for a visit or come for our free crop!!!

Sign up!!!

Mat 10th is looking a little busy!!! Mini-ball, the Play, Sam and Todd's wedding. If enough of you think you could make it on the 10th, please let us know and we will keep it that day!!! Please post a comment or email one of us and let us know. The crop would probably run from 1pm until ? Please sign up ASAP to reserve your spot. If the 10th doesn't end up working, we will try to find a day during the week, as every other weekend is full as well. Again, please let us know what works best for you. Thanks.

After I posted my comments on Monday I ran in to get groceries and my mail and guess what!!! Our first of many packages arrived. Stacey was out on Tuesday to help organize and decide what to order next!!! Our plan is to place one more order next Tuesday, as we are waiting for some 'new arrivals' to become available and hopefully be sent with the order. Let one of us know if there is anything you want!!! We are now waiting for some racks that we ordered for display, then we should be ready. We will post pictures as soon as our 'store' gets some organization. We are hoping to have everything up and running by May 10. That is a Saturday, and we are hoping to do an afternoon crop along with our Grand Opening. Times are not yet decided, but mark your calendar as it will be a FREE crop, and we will have some great door prize draws. More details will be revealed soon.

Stacey and I also want to thank all who have sent wishes of good luck. Your support is what will make this work for us and we will be grateful for it. We can't wait to help you complete your creations of scrapbooks, mini albums, cards, home decor, and any other projects that may present themselves.

We will keep you up to date on our progress, so check back often.

Make it a Great Day!!!

Just to keep you all up to date on our progress, we are expecting our first order some time this week, and are already planning our second order(from a different company)!!!! We are both really excited to get set up and to show you all the new products that have come out in the last few months. If there are any new things that you have seen in magazines, etc. please ask us about getting it for you!!!! We will have access to all the newest stuff, including the new Crop-a-dile, Fancy Pants and Bazzill chipboard, all sorts of new patterned paper as well as a wide variety of cardstock. We will be posting pictures and info as our product arrives so keep checking back for more updates. And please feel free to email or phone either of us for any item that you would like to see in our store and we will do our best to 'bring it to the country'. Thank you for your support!!!

Jackie and I would like to announce our steps into a new adventure. We are in the process of opening a scrapbooking store. And so is the birth of BarnYard Scrappin'. It will be located on Jackie's farm. However, we have just completed the paper work and are now into the fun stuff, so it will take a bit of time to get it all together.

We will keep you informed as to when the grand-opening will be. In the meantime if there is any products that you would like to see, just give one of us a call.
