Now on You Tube

Check out our very first you tube video!

Catching Up!

October was a BUSY month! We had the mobile store out to crops in Simcoe and Woodstock on the first weekend, the second weekend was Thanksgiving (gobble gobble yumm), the third was Scrapfest in Kitchener, the fourth was the Creative Festival in Toronto and Scrap Cancer in Burlington, and the last weekend was our bi-annual garage sale! Not only am I bushed, but I'm also behind! So many new things arrived in the past month. The most recent were:

Midnight Frost, Crazy Love and Crush by BoBunny
Merry January by We R Memory Keepers
Echo Park Merry Christmas

We will have some super awesome deals for BLACK FRIDAY, so if you aren't heading south, be sure to check us out.

In November and December we are headed to the Ranch. We are thrilled to be joining The Kit Company at their upcoming scrapbooking weekend retreats in Brantford!
Yes, I said retreatS - there's two of them, November 26-28 AND Dec 3-5. And if they're anything like the last retreats of theirs that we've been to - they're going to be FANTASTIC!
Lots of cropping space, the meals are great and the hosts, Janette and Jackie make everyone feel really welcome.
When I last spoke to Janette she said they had a few spots left - but they were going fast.
Check out their website for all the details www.
I hope to see you there!

And remember, if you have a crop or retreat coming up and would like The Mobile Memory Keeper to pay you a visit, let us know!

Prima Flowers

It may be fall, but here at The Memory Keeper I'm certain that it is spring because there are flowers everywhere!

But boy do they ever look pretty on the wall, and I can only image how good they will look on your pages. We have a wide variety of fowers and pearls, including a whole wall of the E line (only $1.99 each) If you are into flowers, you will want to check it out.

Lots of NEW stuff!

I've been trying since Monday to get an email out to tell you about all of the new stuff that has come in, but just when I think I have a free moment, more boxes arrive. I'm still in the thick of it, but I'm taking a very quick break to post. The email will have to wait for a bit. Here is a quick review of new items that have arrived. I'll probably forget to mention some, and I'm sure there will be more boxes tomorrow, so the best thing to do is come and visit me. (I might even give you a box to help me unload! lol_

SEI 3 new lines including a Christmas one. Oh so wonderful.

My Minds Eye 2 lines. You will die for the Lost and Found collection. Seriously.

NEW QUICKUTZ Yes I am indeed shouting that one. Can you believe it. It is September 1st and my Spring gift sets are here, as well as a lot of backorders. Ok, I won't harp on it any longer, Quickutz has been having a rough go of it lately.

Penny Black In all fareness I must tell you that these stamps are still in the box and I have not even peeked at them yet. I bet you didn't think I had the willpower. No willpower, but no time either. But if you come in and ask, I'll get that box open. Actually, Kim will probably have it all out tomorrow.

Hero Arts Christmas stamps - already out on the shelf and selling.

Worldwin Cardstock - Ok so maybe that doesn't sound so thrilling to you, but all of those empty racks are now pretty full. We now have three different brands of cardstock. There isn't anything you will be without....textured, smooth, coloured core, embossed, glittered. Delighful!

PLUS, have I mentioned these yet.....New 3 bugs, Karen Foster, Imaginese Sassafrass Lass

I'm sure the list will be longer by tomorrow! This is fun! Boy I sure to like my job! :>)

Copic Air compressor now in Crop room

Our crop room as a new addition. It might look a little intimidating, but it really isn't scary at all. It's a Copic air compressor. If you have a copic collection and would like to explore a whole new way of using them, come in and try using our air compressor to airbrush backgrounds, create designs with templates and colour embellishments. They work great with the new Embossing PLUS dies. The air compressor is available at no extra charge during crop times, or outside of crop times for our usual $2 per hour fee. And no worries, we will show you how to use it. Pleae bring your own copic sketch markers and supplies.

Summer of Savings Week 6

Last week we received a shipment of Cuttlebug's new Embossing PLUS dies. These dies will cut and emboss with one pass through your cuttlebug. They also contain an extra flap that once you lift it you can chalk, ink,or mist the embossed portion of your project before you remove it from the die so that your ink doesn't spill to areas you don't want it to. From now until July 12th when you purchase one of the new Embossing PLUS dies, you will not only get 25% off, but you will also have the opportunity to save 30% on any other ProvoCraft products (limit 3)

Remember, today is also the last day for you to buy wood mounted stamps for 30% off and save 20% on Bo0buny products.
