Webster's Pages Game On

I fell in love with this collection when I saw it!  They came out with a great sports collection that is so versatile, it could be used for boys, girls, cheering, sports, board games, playground, etc... Way to go Websters!  I was happy to finally work with it and scrap this great picture of my niece in her basketball uniform.  I added the jute twine for some subtance at the top and that great leathery looking brad to carry over the circles.  Enjoy the holiday weekend!

Authentique May Challenge

Well here Authentique goes again, challenging me.  Well this one was a challenge indeed.  I personally would never take paper and put it on an angle but I aspire to be that person.  The one that can take paper and put it on an angle without someone telling me to do it.  I like to THINK I'm an outside of the box thinker, but sometimes the box is so warm and cozy.  Here is Authentique's May Challenge:

There is a scrapbook sketch as well, but I decided to create the card this time.  So here it is, using Authentique's Splendid, Bazzill Cardstock, and Hero Arts Stamps:

You can join in too!  Time is almost up, so head over to their blog and take a peak:  Authentique's Blog

Simple Stories Summer Fresh & A new website!

Well let me start out with this - Simple Stories Summer Fresh is one of my very favorite collections ever!  Owning a scrapbook shop, I see a lot of collections and I have to say, I love SO many of them and by love, I mean I LOVE them!  Paper is the best thing since sliced bread.  To me anyway.  BUT when I saw Summer Fresh from Simple Stories, it quickly became one of my all time favorites.  As soon as it found it's way out of the shipping box (which by the way was in seconds) I jumped on that train!  I got the one way ticket to cuteness!  So, the collection came out of the box in seconds but to my surprise, the box that was holding the mini albums was still on the UPS truck.  Nooooooo!  In a couple hours it was in my hands and away I went.  I had a 3-5 page paper due for a final exam that night and guess what I did instead (don't tell my professor) - The album!  (I did get the paper in)

I can't give away too much since this is a class being offered at our shop, but it is a cutie!  This is also available online.  Don't live near us?  We can send the kit to you!  Choose the payment with shipping button on our website and we'll ship to you with the instructions!  (USA only)

And speaking of the website.... We have a new one!  Check it out - We now have scrapbook tips of the week (who can ever have enough scrapbook tips) and all the information on our classes, crops, and retreats!

Two Fold Card

This card is beyond simple to make and I love the way it closes with the hearts overlapping the opposite side.  I cut the cardstock at 8 1/2" X 5 1/2" and then just met the two long ends in the middle, Then decorated.  These stamps are actually Stamping Up!  which is my first purchase from them.  Owning a shop, I am exposed to so many great stamps, but I really enjoyed the multiple hearts in this package.  Stamped in Adirondacks Espresso Ink, I love the neutral colors of this one.

Card Making With Hero Arts and My Minds Eye

This Hero Arts bird stamp really makes me smile.  Cutting him out makes him come to life on this card paired with My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline paper.  The barn board seems so perfect for this nature scene.
