Get Crafty at our June Crop!

 Happy Friday, 
Memory Bound friends!
We hope your summer is off to a great start! If you're like me, summer is the best time to get caught up on projects and make a dent in your "To Do List". One of the best ways to complete those tasks is to schedule them on your calendar. I love checking things off my list!

With that in mind, be sure to schedule yourself to attend our June Crop! It's the perfect way to catch up on your scrapbooking, card-making, or other crafty projects. Gather your friends and give us a call at (515) 965-1102 to register for one or both days!

Next Wed Workshop Make-N-Take: May 28

Make-N-Take Wednesday Workshops 
Wednesdays in May, 1-6pm 

We've had a great time this month with our flower-themed cards at our May Make-N-Take Wednesday Workshops!

This month's projects feature fun techniques and products you'll love. Wednesday afternoons are a great time to stop in and learn something new!

Drop in on Wednesday, May 28 between 1 and 6pm to make this week's fun card designed by Katie ($3). Katie "rolled" the petals to shape a happy, dimensional flower on the front. This is a technique that would be fun on a layout or canvas! Hope to see you then!


Great New Tool: Trim & Score Board

Hello, Memory Bound friends!
We R Memory Keepers just keeps coming up with great new tools! One of their latest tools is the TRIM & SCORE BOARD ($29.99). Instead of using a trimmer AND a scoring board, this handy tool allows you to trim and score projects with the convenience of just one tool! It uses a titanium blade for precision cutting on the easy-to-use 12x12 fold-out surface. And it allows you to create score lines for any crafting project! With measurements in both inches and centimeters, it’s perfect for creating boxes, cards, and envelopes.

Check out this video of the Trim & Score Board in action, then stop in to purchase one soon. Or give us a call at (515) 965-1102 and we'd be happy to set one aside for you!
