The mixed media trend is taking over scrapbooking. especially overseas. We have two different lines from the country of Poland. You are probably already familiar with 13 Arts, but we have recently added 7 Dots Studio to our ranks as well.
Their design teams are fabulously talented, so I thought I would share some summer inspiration from their designers below. Enjoy!

National Scrapbook Day
Saturday May 4, 2013
Scraputante.com is excited to celebrate National Scrapbook Day with you, our fans and friends around the world. Join us Friday thru Monday for special events each day both online and in studio.
Friday May 3--Freebies ALL DAY
Be sure to “Like Us” on Facebook (www.facebook.com/scraputante) and comment on our freebie posts for your chance to win goodies from the scraputante.com store shelves. We love to give our merchandise to our best customers, and you never know, you might win one of your favorites.
Friday May 3--Evening Live Recipe Challenge
Starting at 7 PM EST, we will be doing a live scrapbook page recipe challenge hosted on FB and the blog at blog.scraputante.com. Never tried this particular challenge before? It’s a fun way to get outside of your comfort zone. Kelly will let you know what “ingredients” you need to get started (i.e. one picture, two sheets patterned paper, one sheet cardstock), and every half hour or so, you will be given a new instruction and ingredients to add. Any style or level of scrapper may play along. However, it is important to have a camera on hand so you can post your progress. We always have fun cheering each other along. Challenge will last about 4 hours, and a winner will be chosen--a scrapuante prize pack could be your reward. :)
Saturday May 4--Morning Class Time
Join us in studio for some fun experimentation! We’ll be working with Mixed Media Doll Stamps and Tags from 9 to 10:30 plus a picture page layout from 10:30 to noon. If you do the LO class, please bring one black and white photo from everyday life sized between 3x5 and 5x7--we’ll be using simple stories for this project. Cost for each class is $5 to cover supplies and you will leave with a finished creation.
Saturday May 4--Afternoon/Evening Crop
Studio will be open for cropping from 1 to 10 p.m. We will have shared table space, tool station, dinner, snacks, sweets and a goody bag for each cropper (valued at more than $25). You’ll be surrounded by new products to inspire you you. Cost per seat is $20 for ten hours. Want a smaller gift and less scrappy time, contact Kelly to see if any $10 seats are available.
Saturday May 4--Facebook Featured Fans
Have you purchased supplies from our store? Have a great project to share? Send it in to us April 22-April 30, and you could see yourself featured on our Home Page and Facebook page. Reach a world-wide fan base, including manufacturers and design team coordinators. Be sure to share on your own all and get your friends to respond too.
Sunday May 5--Scrapbook Super Sale
Online for one day only, a LOT of your favorites will be deeply discounted. PLUS, free shipping within the US on any purchases made. This is for our online shoppers and supplies are limited.
Sunday May 5--Sidewalk Sale Sunday
In studio, we will be having a tremendous sidewalk sale. If you haven’t been out to see the studio, you must come find us. We’ll have all kinds of goodies and closeouts out in the sunlight and fun ways to buy, like paper by the inch! Anyone who spends $50 will receive a coupon for discount on regularly priced merchandise inside too.
Sunday May 5--I Spy a SUPER Scraputante
We’ll be on FB all day looking to see who has changed their avatar to our logo and given us a shout out. One lucky fan will win a $100 gift card to spend in the scraputante store on ANYTHING you want.
Monday May 6-Sidewalk Sale
Continued from 9 to 12 in case you want to drop the kids at school and pop over to scoop up some baragains.
Monday May 6--Online Scavenger Hunt
If you didn’t get enough over the weekend, we will be having a quiet little party online Monday, starting at 9 AM EST. Steps and instructions will be posted via FB and the blog. You will have a list of scrapbook clues and a qualified time to finish your hunt. Each player will have to submit her/his entry to Kelly no later than midnight EST on the 7th to qualify. Out of the correct entries, one random winner will be chosen to receive a $50 prize pack from scraputante.com.
We hope to see you in person, online via FB, the blog or anywhere you choose to connect with scraputante.com. Please be aware that after special events like this, shipping does take some additional time. We value our scraputantes and we hope to continue to inspire you with luxury supplies for serious scrapbookers.
Thanks for a terrific 2012. Without you, we wouldn’t be here--and we certainly couldn’t grow and expand. At scraputante.com, we value our customers. Although we offer more than your local craft store, we do like to try and keep an eye on their promotions. We already offer sales on a monthly basis, but we wanted to go beyond that too.
While free shipping is available to all (U.S.) customers when they spend $50, we have decided that Scraputante Elites will get free shipping on every order shipped to the continental U.S. all the time. We know that our best customers will appreciate this offer no matter the size or money spent. If you need expedited shipping, those options will still be available to you.
In addition to that, Scraputante Elites will receive a 5% discount all the time. This will apply to our newest lines and even our greatly discounted products. It is our way of thanking you for each and every order you place.
We hope you like the benefits of membership. In order to maintain Elite status, we ask that you do ONE of the following...
