For those last minute shoppers...

it's getting down to the wire! Instead of the gift certificates (those are always great but..), how about the various kits we have available for sell? There are many to choose from...explosion boxes, mini purse albums, page kits and...

Featuring our own MargieH's handmade recipe flip book! It stands on its own so that you can see your recipe while you're more fighting with the pages flipping over and it doesn't take too much room.

This is a sample but the kit has choices of hair color for the cook and we added a "The Kitchen Of...." stamp (JustRite Stampers) so that you can personalize to fit you! What a wonderful gift for you or someone special!

There are only a handful available and in two different styles...this one shown and one that is lighter in color (more natural tones). For those who don't have time, not to worry we have one available in a dark hair that is ready to go! But it really only takes 45 mins to an hour to put together, you only have to adhere the rest is already painted, stamped and holed.

Deadline this THURSDAY for classes...

you don't want to miss another one of Deb's great QuicKutz class! She offered a great line-up last month and she's back with more this month! I am sharing an email she just sent this morning....

"Hello again Frozen Memories and/or Scrapbook Expo die cut fanatics! Some of you are both and we all know who you are!!

I wanted to let you know that I have a couple more die cut classes coming up this month, in fact right now, that you might want to come and join in the fun...

First, this Saturday (Sept 13th from 10:30-12:30) at Frozen Memories we will have a little Halloween Card Class – cost is $16.00. We will be making two cards with some QK Halloween Dies, a little ink, a little stickles, etc., but the best will be a sign that we are going to laminate when we get done so you can keep it for a long time and affix it proudly to your desk area at work, home, etc....too cute! I am dying to give you a hint but you need to come and take the class to see....but I will tell you that there are times when this sign really can apply, just ask my husband...hahaha. Call Frozen Memories today (630-830-7492) and reserve your spot!

Next, I have a QuicKutz Border class featuring the cute little zoo animals border that some of you requested along with two other borders! Class is Weds, Sept 24th from 6:30-8:30 at Frozen Memories – cost is $16.00 and we will make three borders all together! Call Frozen Memories today (630-830-7492) and reserve your spot!

Lastly, we have a second QuicKutz Layout Class this Sunday, (Sept 14th ) from 12:00-2:00pm for the boy’s page and 2:00-4:00pm for the girl’s page. This is the one that we had last month but some of you could not make it and requested a repeat class. . This is the one that we will learn a couple of techniques and these two Scrapbook pages are cute enough to frame for a baby gift! Cost is $15 for one or $25 for both. Call Frozen Memories today (630-830-7492) and reserve your spot, will cut off Thursday sign up so I have time to make up more kits if needed.

Anyone who has taken my classes knows that we have to have a good head count so I have enough kits made up ahead of time. If you have never used the Squeeze or Revolution we can have you play with one but most everything is cut out ahead of time so you can spend your time assembling and not cutting!

Oh and if you can, please bring your favorite scissors, 12” trimmer, glue and scrapbook tape. Everyone has their own favorites that they are most comfortable with.

For those of you not totally familiar with Frozen Memories yet, they are located on the south-east corner of Army Trail Rd and Route 59 in Bartlett (1081 W. Army Trail Road) so they are easy to get to.

Call me if you have any specific questions, hope to see you there!!!

Ohhhh and some of you gave me a card at the Expo with some specific needs and wants, e-mail me again cause I can't read most of my notes now :(

Deb Schweisthal
630.879.0606 home recorder / e-mail:"

Hope to see a lot of QuicKutz fans (or those who are interested) there!

Saturday, September 6, 2008

The second session will be spent scrapping a Girl's Scrapbook Page again using some new dies as well as some of the older favorites. This session will also be chalk-full of innovative twists added with top secret techniques!

Going on vacation this summer? We have some great 3D embellishments for state or country...fabulous IRL (in real life)!!

IL State Univ & Eastern IL Univ Alums....

guess what's in the house?!


In the past, I hear our customers commenting that others (other LSSs) only have the Big 10 schools but not the other (IL) state schools. One of our vendors happen to have licensing for these two schools so Frozen Memories thought "why not?!" So if you know someone who attends these schools, let them know we have them! Better yet...who's graduating this year? What a great gift to give for a special graduate!

On another note, please know that we also carry the CUBS, SOX, BEARS and Chicago landmarks in 12x12 papers! We had to re-order on some of those papers so get them while they're here!

Tinkering Ink is in the house!!

I have a couple more pictures of some new products that we are proud to carry. This company is fairly new called Tinkering Ink! We just fell in love with this particular line - such vibrant colors that we had to get it! LOL!!

On the opposite of color, we found this beautiful line that has cream, black and dark purple. This combination caught our eye too. These papers would be great for any occassion, be it wedding, prom or even a mother's day card!

So we hope you come in and see for yourself how beautiful these papers are!

Please note that the store is closed for Easter so that we can celebrate with family & friends!

Have a wonderful Easter and take lots of pictures!!!!!

New Products in the house....

First of all, I wanted to upload some pictures that I haven't had a chance until now (new camera means new software = very new!) and make some comments....

I do want to emphasize this BoBunny's Word Book "LOVE" for those who are stuck on what to do for a friend's wedding gift or bridal shower...this is PERFECT! Here's a picture I took (VERY limited...only 4 sets left). So jump on this opportunity to make that special gift!

OK...I was excited to see this "Wine" themed papers and embellishments! There are not too many products for wine lovers so this is a great thing to have for those wine tasting parties or the trips out to Napa/Sonoma areas. Or how about a layout on your favorite wines? I always forget which wines I enjoy so this might be a great way to keep track!

For those of you getting into card making, we have some really nice acrylic stamps from Inkadinkado that would be a great starting point in your collection. These are for all occassions so why not pick up a set? It even comes with an acrylic block!

We also have felt ribbons in the house!!! If you don't know by now, felt is one of the big trends at the trade show (Craft & Hobby Assoc. trade show in Anaheim CA this past January). We have my favorite color combo of pink & brown!

More pictures to come...once I figure out this darn new software! LOL!!!

A Little Reflection....

What do you get when you have a framed mirror, Ranger's acrylic paint dabber, cool Basic Grey paper, Prima flowers (or buttons in one case) and some wet adhesive?


Don't you love this? Had so much fun putting this together that I had my friends do their own creation...each has their own style. With the exception of the frame & buttons, Frozen Memories carry all the products mentioned above. So come and make your own reflection!

I'm sure you heard about our upcoming classes on the "LOVE" word book by BO BUNNY and the St. Patrick's Day themed cards! If you haven't signed up, please call our store and reserve your spot! Or sign up for our popular crops, please look at our calendar to see if any of the crop days work for you!

On the ice cream front, I heard the Red Velvet ice cream is selling like crazy!!!!! If you're in the mood for this YUMMY flavor, I'd run to get some if I were you!!! LOL!!

Can you believe Easter is right around the corner from's early this year! And are you ready? Do you have an outfit? Do you have a special dinner planned?

Do you have a homemade bag like this?

Well, we have the goods to put this bag into a festive mood! The papers from Reminisce are shimmery and add that bling! The "Easter Dinner" chipboard circle is in stock, designed by Margie Higuchi for LaserLine. We also have the acrylic dabbers to paint the bag - it makes creative life so much easier and no brush to clean! The Ranger Ink stickles and the Pebbles Inc. Chalk add the final touches to make this bag sparkle! The laser cut ribbon ("Hoppy Easter") and the various diecuts are also from LaserLine! So grab an empty bag, box or bucket and make it festive!

Here are our Easter goodies in this section and on the display table by the windows. Also, we have them scattered throughout the store!

Need assistance in what to do? Just come in and ask our friendly creative associates! Hope to see you soon!!!!
