Check out the For Always paper...

Personally I am loving all the new papers!  So excited that I will be able to get so much done in our club starting in March!  If you don't already know about the club, click on Scrappin Simply Club in the menu of my blog!  Let me know ASAP if you want to join us as orders will be going in soon!

Anyhow jump over to Lucy's blog here  and see what consultants are creating with the new For Always paper and one of the Close to my Heart cricut cartridges.  She did a beautiful job with the new For Always card kit.  Anyone interested in doing this with me?  Love it!  I've included some pics I got from her blog.  Be sure to jump over to see even more and then follow along to the other blogs in the hop!

Technique- making leather from paper!

Looking for a quick idea to change the look of your paper? Try this leather technique.  Joanne explains how to do it in her blog here.  The attached picture shows her layout she posted in the blog hop- how great does that journalling look!  What a great idea!  Be sure to send me pictures if you try this yourself! 
Joanne also used a paper pack that I love from our Autumn/Winter book which is also still available- along with a couple other "C" papers, just to confuse me LOL.  For her layout, Joanne used Clementine.   For our first club night in March we will either be using one of the other C papers just released- Chantilly or Claire.  I'll be posting pics of those tomorrow.  Tell me- What do you think?  Any preference?
Even if you don't live close and can't "join the club", you can order the Workshop on the Go online on my site here and I can send you via email any tips you may need.  Great way to get layouts done quickly and easily! And be sure to check out the cute Stamp of the Month, "Home Sweet Home"- only $5 if you spend over $50! Love it!
Thanks Joanne for that mini tutorial!  Another great reason to get blog hopping!  I always come away with a new idea or tecnique!  And hopefully you will find a link for the March one right here as I'm hoping to join!  Just need to order the display tray!  Can't wait!
Happy Scrappin' everyone!

Cross Canada Hop- layouts!

So I'm hoping to finally join this hop in March. If you have never participated or followed a blog hop, start now! So much fun! A blog hop starts with a specific topic- this month is scrapbook layout using new papers. You go to the first blog and each blog has a link to another. So you get the chance to see lots of creations and so many examples.

Check out the blog of the lovely lady who keeps us organized, Michelle. And be sure to save some time to hop away! You can find her blog at

Happy hopping!!

Get free stuff AND get layouts done regularly!

... and that doesn't even mention the great GAL time and the extra supplies you will get.... and access to the campaigns ... and sharing tips and ideas!

THE CLUB IS STARTING... have 2 confirmed members.. join us!! I need 5 people to start at least as then we can GUARANTEE that each person will get to be a hostess during the time and get the min of $25 off their order. We will be doing a WOTG (Workshop on the Go)... this can be changed later but I would like to start with this for the first month or so. If you can't make the date but still order the WOTG you will still be eligible for the hostess rewards.

Those doing the club can decide on the which ones we do... hostess choice or vote between all club members... depending on what the members want to do. You will be sure to get a 2 page layout done each session and I will provide any of the additional supplies needed to complete the workshop. I was thinking to start we do Chantilly, Claire or the Canvas Art. I have seen them all completed and they are all gorgeous! Actually I honestly have loved them all!!

Here is a link for the current WOTG's we have running. If people like the paper but prefer the additional layout there are options there. If someone absolutely HATES the one we are doing in a given month, we can discuss the option of them choosing another one that isn't being done. Also after a month or 2 if people don't like the WOTG option we can look at instead people spending the minimum amount each month. But I would like to at least start this way to get us going. Can't WAIT to get in some SCRAPPIN TIME!!

Feel free to share this with any who would be interested. I'd like to get 5 interested people ASAP so we can decide on one for late Feb or sometime in March. Interested? Send me a PM, comment or email me at!

Quick Tip

When making cards I use a sentiment that can be used for many uses. For example with this card although it says 4my friend inside you could add a sentiment for someone's birthday, missing you, feel better, thank you. Options are endless. Cut supplies for a bunch of them and make a stack and keep it generic so you can grab it and use it as needed.
