Our kit this month is so pretty! We brought the Bo Bunny's collection "Petal Lane" specifically for this kit & are not carrying it in store. The pinks & yellows have us feeling very springy and the pops of black are perfect. Add in an assortment of coordinating embellishments and vinyl sticker die cuts and you have a fabulous combination for a burst of inspiration.
Our kit is worth over $50 and we sell to you for $35.... can't beat that!
Kit Subscribers: your kits are complete and ready for pickup.
Need a kit? Pop by the store at 5218-86st and pick one up today or call 780-414-1540 to have one set aside.
Tuesday, April 11th will be our last double-stamp Tuesday.
This was an advantage of Membership which gave Members double the amount of stamps for their purchases on Tuesdays. With our new point-of-purchase system we no longer offer stamps to Members for every $10.00 spent, instead you get "Loyalty" points for every dime spent. The points add up much quicker (as many have already found out), and you're not required to carry any cards.
Because the double-stamp Tuesday was a perk of Membership when you purchased it we have added 3-months Membership to everyone who is currently a Member as compensation for the loss of this perk. Double-stamps was getting too difficult to administer and unsustainable for the store. We still have the least expensive membership in Edmonton, $25.00 for a year, and the most competitive rewards for Members:
April 01st marks our 10th Anniversary as owners of Treasured Memories. So much has happened to our family in those 10 years, not the least of which was the addition of 3 happy, healthy, beautiful granddaughters/nieces. Chantel has been very busy at home raising them. This past September, Scarlett, the eldest, started Grade 01. This has freed up a wee bit of time for Chantel to become more involved at the store. One of the projects she's been able to help us with is going back online. We did have an online presence several years ago but with so much happening in our lives we didn't have the time/personnel to maintain it.
We've just finished updating our point-of-sale system and inventory of over 9,000 items, most are now posted on the online store. We are running a promotion for the month of April - any order over $50.00 will receive free shipping anywhere in Canada. More items will be added to the online store weekly and we'll be making more changes to the operation of our store to ensure we're around in another 10 years!
If you have any constructive feedback from your experience with our new online store please let us know so we can continue to improve it's functionality and your experience with us.

Introducing - a new series of workshops!
Each of the workshops will feature products and techniques commonly used in the mixed media world. The first workshop is a comprehensive, in-depth look at the 3 most common mediums used – Gel Medium, Molding Paste, and Gesso; plus you’ll learn about the different textures you can create using these products. You will practice the techniques on tags, and adhere them in a book to use as a reference of the techniques learned. Acrylics, inks, distress ink pads, stamps, washi tapes and stencils were used in making the tags. If you have these supplies and want to use them, please bring them. Various mediums, tags, papers, tag book, washi tape, and other supplies used in the workshop will be provided.
