Paper Wreath Idea

 Check out this paper wreath that Pat made!  She created different sized rosettes with the Martha Stewart Scoring Board and attached them to a styrofoam  base with hot glue. Pat added coordinating buttons to embellish the rosettes.

The wreath is approximately 12" in diameter, but only took 4 sheets of paper.

Stop in to take a closer look and let us show you how easy it is to use the Martha Stewart Scoring Board.  Once you try it, you'll be busy making rosettes, envelopes, boxes.....

The Scrapbookers Bill of Rights

I just found this in my stash and thought you might all like to read it also!

A Scrapbooker is entrusted with documenting and safely preserving family photos in an album to be treasured by future generations. Creating a Scrapbook is an honorable and important task. As a Scrapbooker, you are entitled (but not limited) to the following rights:

YOU have the right to take as long as you want to complete one album page. This may be five minutes or two weeks.

YOU have the right to purchase a certain scrapbook item for no other reason than because 1) you like it; 2) you think it's cute; 3) you'll never find it again, or 4) you know you'll use it someday.

YOU have the right to a workspace of your own. This may be the basement, your college student's old bedroom, or the kitchen table. It's yours.

YOU have the right to scrapbook when inspiration strikes -- whether the dishes are done or not.

YOU have the right to request peaceful, kid-free, stress-less scrap time -- guilt free.

YOU have the right to create pages that reflect and celebrate the spirit of the one person who is usually NOT in the photograph: You.

YOU have the right to put whatever you want on your album page. This includes, but is not limited to: patterned papers, die-cuts, stickers and Punch-Outs. You may place as many or as few photos per page as you deem appropriate.

YOU have the right to do nothing more than snack and socialize at a 6-hour cropping party.

YOU have the right to value your personal scrapbooking style to be as important as your photographs. You are creating a treasure -- and part of that treasure is you.

Holiday Projects

Janis made these holiday projects for us to share with all of our customers. The snowman is made from the wood blocks we have in the front of the store. The album uses October Afternoon papers and is made to look like a gift -- so cute. She used papers from the Holly Jolly line from My Minds Eye to make the mitten. Look for all of these samples and dozens more next time you are in!
