"Frightful" by My Little Yellow Bicycle, "Sheer Delights" by KI Memories & Sugartree are IN!!!

Today we received two HUGE boxes from My Little Yellow Bicycle, with the Frightful collection. It is absolutely the most adorable Halloween collection I have ever seen! WAIT 'til you see this one!!! As a matter of fact, I'm going to call the company tomorrow to see if I can get more of it in, because I know it's going to sell out VERY quickly. There is a gorgeous FLOCKED SPIDER AND WEB paper that is really cool. There are glittered papers and diecut papers. One of the diecut papers has spiderwebs all along the edges, as a border all around. Another one has diecut bats as a border all around the page. There's another diecut page that is a collage of Halloween sayings and words, with little bats and spiders and webs mixed in between them all. The skull image they use throughout the collection is REALLY WICKED!!! It has a cutout flourish in the top of the right side of the skull. I also have matching acrylic cling stamps for this collection, and it does include the skull! If you want to see the collection, go to and click on the Collections, then click on the Frightful icon. I have pretty much the entire collection, except for a couple things that were already backordered! Both chipboard alphabet sets, the transparency frames and images, the charms, the glittered stickers (cardstock and chipboard)... I am using this for the Layout of the Month for those of you who belong to the Club. The Workshop for the LOM is THIS SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 13th. Please check the website calendar for more info.

NEW from KI Memories, SHEER DELIGHTS Small Flowers 1 and Small Flowers 2. These are like nothing you've ever seen before in scrapbooking! They are acid-free and archival safe, and are fairly transparent diecut sheets that are made of a material that is like very, very thin plastic. It is very versatile and can be used for papercrafting as well as home decor. You've probably already seen the ads for it in the current scrapbooking and papercrafting magazines. The ad I've seen uses it as a cone-shaped holder for a bunch of flowers. It is something you just have to see. To see it online, go to and click on the Sheer Delights collection. But I'm warning you, the images online do not really do it justice at all. It's something you have to see in person in order to really appreciate it.

Okay, we also got in a HUGE shipment of new Sugartree papers. For those of you not familiar with this company, they are the ones who do the excellent themed papers. We got in new travel papers with airplanes on them, pandas, black bears (LA has black bears!), an absolutely fantastic chicken and eggs page, mountains, beach scenes, rubber ducky in bathtub with matching tile paper. So much, I really can't list it all. The invoice was two complete pages.

Okay, I'm a little punch drunk. It's been a long, busy day and tomorrow will be the same.

Until next time, happy scrapping!

Post-Gustav News from Scrappersaurus

Greetings, everyone!

I'm happy to report that BOTH stores fared out just fine through Gustav, as did our home and Emery's apartment.

Felix and I are in the Mandeville store today, and the store is open as usual for business. We received nine (9) boxes of new inventory today, so we're pretty busy putting things back together after having packed everything away safely to survive the storm, as well as inputting new inventory and putting that out.

The Metairie store will reopen on Monday, September 8th at 10:00 AM. Emery went to the Metairie store and said the entire parking lot is completely filled up with Breaux Mart customers who are returning and trying to restock their food supply, and who cannot find parking in the Breaux Mart parking lot.

If anyone needs anything in the meanwhile, please call the Mandeville store and we will see how we can get it to you. I know right now the kids are probably stir-crazy and have you climbing the walls, and papercrafting would be a good thing to occupy their time (as well as yours) while waiting for things to return to normal. If you can make it to the Mandeville store, we have some kits available that have everything you need in them, including the adhesive.

Please do e-mail us at or call us to let us know you are okay. You may think you are just "Customers" to us, but we actually consider each and every one of you "Family", and are concerned about you. Let us know if we can help with anything.

Take care, stay safe, and stay in touch.

Until next time, happy scrapping!
