How about putting together some embellishments that do triple duty in your paper crafting?  A large, stand alone focal point for a card front and also be used in your scrapbook layouts and help out with decorating your packages this holiday.  Check out the article on my paper crafts page: Large Focals and Embellishments.

stamping papers

Posted October 15, 2014 By scrappy

How many times do your photographs clash with the traditional colors of the holiday?  Mine did – and on Halloween, no less.  Red, White and Blue does not make for a Halloween scrapbook layout.  I love a challenge, however and talk about it on my scrapbooking page and link on the videos – scrapbook techniques for the youtube video.

Mass produce goodie bags

Posted October 2, 2014 By scrappy

Finished posting my paper crafts – goodie bags.  I have to assume that if you are creating goodie bags – you’re needing to create a LOT of them (for me a lot – is more than 4 :( .   hahahaha.  Shhhheck it out….  I did some Halloween designs as I am hoping to have trick-or-treaters.  Worst case, I rip em open and the treats are for me!

Product Picks

Posted October 2, 2014 By scrappy

This last quarter of the year is a BLAST for paper crafts.  There is almost – never too much ;) – to choose from.  Need to start thinking of fall and winter layouts for your scrapbook pages, and of course – Christmas Cards!  So………. rather than choose a stamp set, framelit or die – I’m opting for the basics once again.  Product picks have been updated on my home page with the collections of card stock that form the basis of it all and a twine that can be manipulated to give a lot of look and easy to coordinate…….  Clearance link is also a go – and JUST checked: Candlelight Christmas DSP is still available and on clearance!

Quilts and Fall – are like toast and jam.  With the cooler weather moving in and the wind blowing – family life scrapbook pages in a quilt look layout just follow.  Article is on my scrapbook page, and video discussion/demo linked under videos ->scrapbooking -> techniques.  Great go-to layout ideas when your looking for something unique for your book.
