Two Scrapbook Friends offer a variety of workshops and crops that will suit the beginner or advanced scrapbooker, and our spacious, inviting workshop space provides the perfect atmosphere to focus on your hobby.
Our passion for preserving life's memories in a creative way and our friendly, enthusiastic teaching style make our workshops the place to be! Join us as we take you step-by-step through beautiful double-page layouts that include the latest scrapbooking products and techniques. Add finished pages to your album as you enjoy an evening out and make new scrapbooking friends in a fun, informal atmosphere. Our classes include beginner workshops, layout classes, card workshops, and specialty classes. See our calendar for a schedule of upcoming workshops.
We offer a number of different crops for you to choose from. Join us for a Pizza & Pop Crop on Friday nights, an all-day crop, or stop by during store hours to use our cropping space and tools. Any one of these cropping opportunities allows you the time, tools and inspiration to complete your scrapbook pages! Our punches, templates, paper trimmers, and other tools are available for your use during crop times and, of course, we are there to offer professional advice as needed. We also have the following for your use and pleasure:
- Cuttlebug and Embossing Folders!
- Cricut machine and Cartridges! (Please bring your own Cricut cutting mat.)
- Sizzix machine with hundreds of dies!
- self-healing cutting mat at each spot!
- our Tassimo coffee maker!
- a Candy Bar for your sweet tooth!
FREQUENT ATTENDANCE CARDS
As our way of saying 'thank you' for joining us at our workshops, Two Scrapbook Friends offer a Frequent Attendance Program. When you attend a workshop at Two Scrapbook Friends, you will receive a stamp on your Frequent Attendance Card. After 10 stamps you will receive a $15.00 credit towards your next workshop! The cards are stamped for instructed workshops only. Crops and special events are excluded from this program. It is your responsibility to keep your card and have it stamped at each workshop. We do not stamp for missed workshops. If you lose your card, we will issue a new one but cannot back stamp. We hope many of our scrapbooking friends will benefit from this program!
Did you know that you can purchase most classes in a KIT form? Of course we always prefer to have your bright and shiny face in our classroom, but we know things come up and you can't always attend the class at the time we offer it. So to help those of you who really want to take the class, but can't, a class kit may just be the answer to your busy schedule! Class kits are available for most classes and will be available to pick up two days after the class date. Class kits must be reserved and prepaid prior to class time - just order a kit prior to the class date and we will provide you with all the materials, a color photo of the finished layout, and instructions so you can complete the layout at home. A $2.00 kit fee will apply in most cases.
Two Scrapbook Friends offer a fabulous scrapbooking get-away weekend a couple of times a year at The Oakwood Inn Spa and Golf Resort. Imagine a weekend of eating, sleeping and scrapbooking without any responsibilities! Weekends include goodie bags, prizes, great accommodations, wonderful food, comfortable cropping space and lots of fun! Watch our calendar and emails for upcoming retreat weekends.
"Thank you and congratulations on an amazing weekend retreat. The entire weekend proved how hard you two worked to put it all together. I had more fun than I could have ever imagined. Those memories will be with me forever.
I feel rejuvinated and more creative than before I started the weekend. It was so nice to relax and not feel pressured for time to get things done. It's easier and very enjoyable to work and be creative in an atmosphere like that.
Thanks again for all your hard work, support and enthusiasm." Sue R., Waterloo
"The retreat was awesome! You guys put together a fantastic weekend and you should give each other a pat on the back. Sign me up for next fall (I'll make the dates work).
Mary, Rhonda and I had an amazing time. Thanks again! " Kimberley L., Elora
"I just wanted to drop you a line to say what a fantastic time I had this weekend. Oakwood was a wonderful spot, and we couldn't have asked for a better weekend. The games and prizes were fun (and very good MCs!!), and you couldn't have put me with better table-mates. My Scissor Sisters (Pam, Sandy and Danielle) were great women, and we had a fabulous time together. And best of all - I got to SCRAP!!!!
Thanks again for such a good time - I'll be marking my calendar for next fall's retreat, too!!! Please be sure to keep me on your e-newsletter mailing list!" Paula V.
I had to write for a few reasons. Obviously this weekend I was the "newbie" and it showed!! But you never made me feel bad or unaccomplished. Your professionalism, enthusiasm and open-hearted welcome and friendliness did indeed show me this can be fun and once I get going, "addictive". The weekend was so well organized and so incredibly smooth with food (fabulous by the way!), prizes, games, and setup that I will come again! I have also decided that you are by far the best vendor in the Tricity area hands down and will start doing more of the Friday crops so that I can learn more as I go. Your store was also the topic of discussion at hockey last night and my daughter is going to start with your kids club with her cousins! Thanks again ladies! Job well done! Rhonda W.
I am sure you are still trying to catch your breath after completing the retreat this past weekend. I just wanted to extend a heartfelt "thanks" for making it so much fun for us. Eight of us moms left our kids and husbands behind and packed our supplies for Oakwood with very high hopes for a great weekend away. We were not disappointed at all! We had so much fun and managed to get some layouts finished too. See you at the store! Shelby K.
