Happy National Scrapbook Day!

May 2, 2009

What better way to celebrate than by gathering together with friends and coming in to Scrapbook Destination for today’s Frenzy? While you’re in the store you can pick up papers from Basic Grey’s new Lime Rickey collection, like the Howdy Doody paper I used to make this card. Think bright, fun, and whimsical!

Wishing it were Spring…

February 13, 2009

OK, so don’t we wish it were Spring already!? I don’t know about you but I sure am ready to see ‘green’ again, flowers sprouting, long walks in the ‘sun’ – all things spring-like.

I’m sure you know that the above Basic Grey Porcelain and Marrakesh paper is in the store. We now have the BG Paper Packs, Paper Pads as well as the Brads to match! Time to start working on those lovely Spring layouts, invites, etc.

But WAIT, there’s more, look what rolled into the store yesterday. The new lines from SEI: Bridgeport and Mimosa. You have to see these in person because they are fabulous!

Complete the look with rubons, acrylic stamps, flowers, chipboard elements, etc.

I can also see the packaging for these items being ‘repurposed’ as altered treat boxes or other altered items.

Happy weekend!

Creative cheers,

Granola, it’s not just for breakfast anymore…

Basic Grey just keeps on serving up good eats!  Okay, I meant ‘paper’ – check out the deliciousness that graced the store recently.  I really like these colors and finally something for the boys in our life.  Keep an eye out for an amazing class that Christyn will be doing with this line.

Let’s not forget Urban Prairie by Basic Grey too.  The colors are so vibrant in this collection and will make for some great pages.  Treat yourself to some Basic Grey goodness today!

Creative cheers,

Rachel

Sunday Sketch

May 26, 2008

Happy Memorial Day…hope you enjoyed the sunshine today and your picnic doesn’t get rained out tomorrow. Here’s this weeks sketch, just in case you find yourself stuck inside and ready to scrap.

and a quick layout using my favorite papers from Basic Grey and new Heidi Grace. I used my sewing machine to stitch a border around the edge and draw your eye into the photos.

Have a great week!

Look What’s New!

April 18, 2008

   

We have tons of fun new stuff in the store. The Basic Grey is here, and you have got to see all the samples that are sprouting like Spring flowers around here. We also have the new Chatterbox, and it’s inspiring everyone to make things. (See Heather’s post, below.) We’ll be featuring it in some of the projects during the First Anniversary Frenzy May 3; don’t miss it!

 

Melissa Frances just arrived– a baby line called “Hushabye,” including the greatest journaling stickers, and an awesome line called “Thankful” that celebrates Breast Cancer Survivors.
