Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from the Girls at SnS

Christmas is both a sacred religious holiday and a worldwide cultural and commercial phenomenon. For two millennia, people around the world have been observing it with traditions and practices that are both religious and secular in nature. Christians celebrate Christmas Day as the anniversary of the birth of Jesus of Nazareth, a spiritual leader whose teachings form the basis of their religion. Popular customs include exchanging gifts, decorating Christmas trees, attending church, sharing meals with family and friends and, of course, waiting for Santa Claus to arrive. December 25–Christmas Day–has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1870. (

What are some of your family's favorite holiday traditions?

Holiday Gift Ideas

If you are like me you are trying to get your Christmas shopping done so you can get it all wrapped and not have to worry about it last minute. We have some great gifts at Scrap-n-Stamp, not only do we have a ton of paper, stamps, and embellishments. You can purchase gift cards for that special someone.

In addition to all those fabulous gift ideas the girls have also created a few other options. We have beautiful handmade necklaces that are made with Asian paper. These make wonderful gifts and they are only $10 for a small and $15 for a large.Debbie and Renee have been extra creative this year and came up with some fabulous metal bulletin boards. They have a piece of cork on them so you can pin notes, magnets so you can put pictures on them as well, or you can use the post-it pad that comes with it. They can be custom designed, so if you have a teenager these are great. We can customize them by high school, sport or any other theme. You have to come check these out. These would make an awesome gift for that special teacher. See a couple of the designs below.

Happy scrapbooking in minutes :-)

So I thought I try this digital scrapbooking since my sister in law is in town and all she does is digital. I'm all for technology but always so hesitant with digital which meant more time in front of the computer. But seriously, took my 30 minutes and I came up with the awesome creations, so very simple! The best part is I can send it "video" to my family members or I could take it to Scrap -n- Stamp and print all the pages out! Fantastic! Need more info...come by SnS and we'll hep you out!

We hope you have a fantastic Thanksgiving and may you have plenty of memories to carry on for generations!

Elk Grove Turkey Trot

This really doesn't have anything to do with Scrapbooking or Card Making but it is something my husband and I decided to do this Thanksgiving. The Elk Grove Turkey Trot is a 5K / 10K race for participants of all ages and fitness categories. Turnout at the first annual event, held in 2009, was amazing and raised $6700 to support Courage to be You. Please visit the C2BU website to learn more about the ways the money raised through participating in the race went towards the Courage House. We look forward to seeing you on Thanksgiving morning!

If you are interested there is still time to register for the race: Elk Grove Turkey Trot

I guess you could scrapbook some great pictures from the race. I will post mine after the race :-)

Giving Thanks

OK ladies, I'm a bit behind in blogging. I know Thanksgiving is just around the corner and many of you will have friends and family over for a huge feast. Do you need some decorating ideas?? How about some cute napkin rings or place cards. You have to check out what the girls at invitations ink have put together. They are super creative and talented!! Check out their website or facebook page every Friday they post some great freebies.

To celebrate the end of World War 1 - hostilities ended on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.

US President Woodrow Wilson first proclaimed an "Armistace Day" for November 11, 1918. In proclaiming the holiday he said...

"To us in America, the reflections of Armistace Day will be filled with lots of pride in the heroism of those who died in the country's service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and for the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of nations."

In 1954, Armistace Day was changed to Veterans Day to pay honor to those that fell in World War 2. And those words that were spoken almost a hundred years ago, apply even to this day.

Wishing one of our very own Scrap-N-Stamp gals, Sommer (Army helicopter pilot), a very happy Veterans Day. We appreciate that you are here with us "scrappin" away and thank you for the service that you provided to make us safer. The girls at Scrap-N-Stamp thank those that served and those that are currently serving our country. We would also like to thank all of the people that support the armed forces of the Unites States. Especially to the spouses and significant others who deal with long deployments, late nights at the office and other hardships that a military life may bring. It takes a special person to truly understand and deal with this lifestyle. In honor of Veterans Day, we will be offering everyone our military discount of 20% of every purchase on Friday November 12 through Saturday November 13 (excludes classes and giftcards).

Thank You Veterans

Happy Veterans Day to all my fellow Veterans!! Thank you for your service and Thank you to those who continue to serve. Here are a few interesting facts about veterans.

9 million: The number of veterans 65 and older in 2009. At the other end of the age spectrum, 1.7 million were younger than 35.
21.9 million: The number of military veterans in the United States in 2009.

1.5 million: The number of female veterans in 2009.

Tool Time

Here is another one of my creations for one of my husbands employee's. He is really into tools and gadgets. So I decided to make him a toolbox card. I used my pazzle and created all the hardware on the toolbox and the lettering. I think it turned out pretty good. Brads and pop-up foam also added dimension.

Party for an artist...

Kaitlyn's 3rd birthday is coming and I wanted to make a super cute party invite. But first I had to come up with a theme. Her first year I did cupcakes, and her second was a Halloween Costume party. This year was pretty easy to come up with a theme since she loves to color and paint. So I designed this Crayola box invite below using my Pazzle.
You lift the flap and pull out the crayon's.
I used glossy accents on the end of the crayon's to make them shiny.
Since it's her 3rd Birthday I used three crayon's.

I glued the three crayon's to a piece of black paper and on the back is the party information. I picked Orange since it's Kait's favorite color. And the other two colors just looked good with the Orange.
Here is the back of the invite. I used Orange Ink around the edges and Tattered Angle's spray to give it that painted look.

Tool Time

Here is another one of my cards I made for one of my husbands employees, and once again I can't take the credit. I copied this one from a fathers day card that one of the girls at Scrap-n-Stamp made, but it works great for a Birthday card too. The one that I copied had super cut brads that looked like screw heads, but we were all out of them at the store.

Twilight Lovers....

You know Halloween is right around the corner, and since Twilight is such a huge hit I figure there will be ton's of people dressing up as Twilight charters. So I picked Fearless Vampire Killers as the Font of the month. Also we have Twilight paper at Scrap-n-Stamp!!! We have the paper below and it has Vampire written on the top. The coordinating stickers are available too!

Happy 3rd Birthday Jack!!!

Here is the card I made for Jack, his party is baseball theme, so I thought this would be perfect. You could also use this a party invitation and just put the information on the back of the glove instead of making it a card that opens. Or you can use Kim's super cute idea and cut out the baseballs and put the party information on the back. Either way they are sure to be a hit!!! Happy Birthday Jack, I can't believe you and Kait are already 3.

Right now they are having a dollar day sale!!! So check it out and let me know what you think. Also if you have a favorite site you like to go to let me know so I can share it with everyone.

For the guys..

Here is a great card for the guys. This card was originally designed and created by Lisa, unfortunately she no longer lives in Elk Grove :-( I stole her design and re-made this card. I think it turned out pretty cool. I used glossy accents to make it look like water is dripping down the mug. we can cut the mug out on the Pazzle if you would like to make your own beer mug card.

Tuesday, September 28, 2010


My mom took Kaitlyn to the Circus when they were in town, so I thought it would be nice to send her a cute Thank You Card. I had an idea in my head, but I wasn't sure I would be able to find the images on my Pazzle, but sure enough there was a circus tent and a cute elephant. I think I'm going to cut out another tent for Kaitlyn's scrapbook. If you need a circus tent for your scrapbook come by the store, you can pick out the paper you like and have it cut to the size you want.

I'm currently going back to school for my MBA. I was doing one of my reading assignments and I came across this in my text book:

Research suggests that we are more creative when we’re in good moods, so if
we need to be creative we should do things that make us happy. Perhaps that is
listening to music we enjoy, eating foods we like, watching funny movies, or
socializing with others.32 There is also evidence that suggests being around others
who are creative can actually make us more inspired, especially if we’re creatively
“stuck.” (Organization Behavior By Stephen P. Robbins, Timothy A. Judge)

This made me think about Scrap-n-Stamp and what a great place it is for inspiration.

New Back 2 School Line...

Just in from Best Creations the Back2School line, it's supper cute. It was a must have for me since my little Kaitlyn just started her first year of pre-school and I'm super excited to Scrap the memories!! We also received some basic glitter paper from Best Creations, it will look great with a wide variety of papers. We currently have yellow, black and two shades of pink available. It reminds me of the Bo Bunny double Dot, except it has glitter!!! You can't go wrong with that. You can see the picture below, but it is sooo much cuter in person.
