This weeks design team challenge is especially close to my heart. Paper Vineyard is very pleased to start a new department called Grapevine Designs. The store has the capability to produce custom chipboard product. You will see fantastic products only available here!!
The ladies of the design team spent a lot of time and effort decorating a few of our new chipboard books. The finished products are amazing and absolutely showcase so many different ways that YOU our wonderful customers can take these books and make them your own. This is a long blog posting, it takes a lot of space to brag about these projects. Make sure to read all the way to the end as you can help these ladies win a fabulous prize plus maybe win a matching prize. Pour some coffee...start reading....and fall in love with Grapevine Designs.
Newest member of the design team Kelly decorated the Plain Jane Tree book.
The book features We R Memory Keepers Spookville paper, chip board and stamps. Kelly also used the Fiskars Grass border punch and Spellbinders Graveyard Scene and Shapes set (airbrushed with Copics). She added Crystal Lacquer to the polka dots on the background paper and black glitter to the tree. So much fun!!
Mindy used the same exact book but took it a completely different place by designing a vintage album.
This album was made using the Plain Jane Tree Book, metal birds and white lace-rose trim by Tim Holtz, Paper by Vintage Collage Stack, rhinestones, fabric, burlap, paint and stamping from Mindy's stash. Amazing what a good stash can do.
Danielle decorated the Plain Jane Candelabra book.
Danielle put her book together with product from Paper Vineyard. The paper is from various sections of the store, not necessarily Halloween paper but she selected items that were elegant and tied with her theme beautifully. Her candelabra is decorated with glitter and rhinestones. She used rub ons, bling and We R Memory Keeper embellishments to create this amazing book.
Marijo used the Plain Jane Man and Woman book and turned it into a beautiful travel book. She used her cricut to make little suitcases and the title. She covered the man and women with travel paper and added photos and paper to make this album one you will want to treasure forever.
So here is our friendly competition that kicks off tomorrow. Come into the store and vote for your favorite Design Team book. We just might have a couple more dropped off at the store. Cast your ballot and the winner receives a Paper Vineyard product bag worth at least $40. A little added bonus is that we will select one of the ballots and one lucky customer will win a PV Product bag as well. Everything will be displayed until September 30th when the winner and the lucky customer winner will be announced. So take a few minutes and come in and vote!
Grapevine Designs is a great opportunity for the store and it does have an impact to the customers immediately. All good impacts....I promise.
First, beginning today Tuesday 8/30 PV will be closed on Tuesdays. This will allow us one complete day to design, cut and prep our new products.
Second, beginning Wednesday 8/31 we will be ready to start taking your custom orders. PV can cut your kid's names, places you have been to, shapes/embellishments for your invitations or a custom name book.
Third, boss us around...tell us what inventory you want to see. We would LOVE your input as we continue to grow. We want to be your local scrapbook store of choice, tell us what you want.
