What's New In Stamps

This video gives a great overview of some of our great new stamp sets in the new Fall/Winter 2013 idea book. Now you can get crafting with as little as $2.95 with our M size sets! Don't let those limited addition sets pass you by.

Contact me today and ask me about a Party in the Box if you are not local to me and I can set you up so you can get together with a few of your friends and you can learn how easy it is to start making cards yourself :).

Memory Keeping Matters!

Scrapbooking is not dead! There have been rumors - yes rumors that scrapbooking is dying. But what we are seeing in the industry, that it is evolving. Social media and the way we are living, scrapbooking is changing. There are still many people who love to work with paper - we can help you. But now, there are lots of people who love to use their media - we can help you with that as well - there is Studio J.

But did you know, that you can use your Instagram, Facebook and many of the other Social Media platforms for scrapbooking? As you document your daily happenings - you are scrapbooking! Those of you, who never put a pair of scissors to paper, but document your family's life in media, you are scrapbooking. Make sure, you save it. You will enjoy it someday.

Have you seen this?

Have you seen this?

Late and Great Update from CTMH

Creative Keepsakes has reviewed a few of our new products - they basically have saved me a little bit of my work :). I could not have taken better pictures of the Crush books or the washi tape - so have a look and you may want to start playing with those new products.

As you check those new products out, remember, one of the new Hostess sets - the Washi Wonder will give you an endless assortment of Washi Tape choices.

I also wanted to tell you when I first saw the crush books I was not so sure what to do about them. I am a traditional scrapper. Cut the background, put a stamp here and there and so forth. But these books totally set you free! My gosh! Collect your memorabilia, use some of our flip flaps, journal, put your pictures in as you take them and you put your little book together as you go! Do you have a special occasion you want to put one together for - same thing! The purposes you can use these books for again - are endless! See how many different books we have available and have fun!

Dress Up your artwork with the Ombre Technique!

How cool is that! This technique is very hard to show at a gathering or do at a workshop, because it will be hard for you to stick it in your bag and take home - it would be all messy when you get home :). So, I am glad CTMH took the time to show this to you. I love it! Can you imagine all the cool things you can do? I hope you spied the cute little mini album she dressed up with those letters. Today is the first day you can get the new Artbooking cricut cartridge all all the other new products from the new Fall/Winter idea book. Stop by and check all the new cool things out. I will highlight some of the wonderful new things we added over my next posts.

Have fun!

Hello and thank you for stopping by!

This is my first attempt on a blog - can you tell? I am sure you can. From what I have learned about blogs they are like an online journal and you are getting a peak into my soul ...

At this time I am trying to learn how to post my artwork with watermark and copyright and all that jazz -but I a, learning. My plan is to post my work and along with it I will explain what I used and how I made the project.

As we go along, I will also give you a peak into my life. I will share some pictures of my family, places we have been, places we have visited. So, please come back and visit often. Just know, that I am very new to this blogging thing! So, at this time - any help you can give me is highly appreciated in growing my skills in "blogging".

If you live close to me and you would like to join me in my craft place or one my crops please, check my calendar for any upcoming workshops!

A scrapbooker's quilting bee!
