Hi Everyone !

So yesterday was the day all of the goodies that came home in my overstuffed suitcases made the trip to the store. Elizajane and I poured over all the samples and put some out on display. Lots of Graphic 45 booth samples for you to see, plus, a complete collection of the Deluxe Collectors Edition of Secret Garden! We’ve opened up the set into individual sleeves so you can get a great view of each design. Secret Garden will arrive toward end of August. To be sure not to miss out, you may want to preorder this collection! Drop in to get a good look!

I counted the Prima prize bags today….25! Each will have product prizes added to it! Don’t miss your chance to win one of the special gifts! Whether you are wanting a mini album, mixed media or card class, we have something in each category for you on our class list. We hope you’ll join in the fun!

It was fun to share the bags of new ideas that came back, and we look forward to introducing you to not just new paper collections, but new media, dies, folders, adhesives, paints and the list goes on!

Sierra Pacific Show – Update

Hi Everyone,
Landed in Seattle. Excited to see evergreen trees and a partly cloudy sky! Waiting for the connecting flight to the island.

Suitcases are loaded with product samples, including finished projects won in a draw at the Graphic 45 booth! Oh, and some samples of new releases including Secret Garden!  I am attaching a photo of the newest, and youngest member of the Graphic 45 family team. Richard is as adorable in person as he is in the photo!

Funny, I went to Salt Lake with one suitcase packed inside the other. Coming home, they are both stuffed! Full of catalogues nod lots of new goodies to share with you! I was fortunate enough to receive a full set of new bags from Prima Marketing. That means prizes available to win at our classes this summer! And, a girl can’t have a bag with nothing in it, now can she? ?!
So, Treasured Memories will make sure you have something inside every prize bag! How can you win one? Attend one of our scheduled classes! We’ll be making a draw at every class until all prize bags are awarded. So join us for a class soon!

Show Trends from the Salt Lake City Show

The Sierra Pacific trade show in Salt Lake City, Utah finished this afternoon in 97′ sunshine!
I am excited to report that scrapbooking, mixed media  and paper crafting in general, are alive and well, with some exciting new companies emerging, and other, well established vendors in the art materials are adjusting their products to meet the needs of our customers.

Walking the show floor, I noted three trends expressed in a variety of ways. First, plaid was everywhere! Finally, true plaids are available, in traditional and innovative patterns and colours, supported by checks. Wood patterns continue to mix well with the warm and cozy themes we usually find in fall and winter releases. Glitter papers are strong, and vendors have found ways to keep the glitter attached to the paper, while making it possible to die cut.
Dies are a large component of many collections, often coordinating with stamps and with stencils, another strong sector. Seasonal colour palettes and images are definitely traditional, whether fun and delightful or reto-vintage style.  Colouring remains strong, and we will be continuing to grow this area in the shop.

Speaking of the shop, while I have been off shopping for fall and winter, Patty and Elizajane have a been very busy putting our newest summer products on the shelves. If you haven’t been to see us for a while, now is a great time! Camping, hiking, water fun and all things summer are now available!
There is so much more to share with you from the show! So watch for the next instalment of Report from Salt Lake over the coming days. We’ll be letting you know all the great additions coming to Treasured Memories!

Of course, new products can take time to reach our shelves, but Treasured Memories has orders placed to be  the first to receive new product shipments for fall and winter.
