Are you behind in your Scrapbooking and don't know where to start??? Do you get overwhelmed every-time you think about it? Join the club, I have started Kaitlyn's book, but she is now 3 1/2 years old and I don't even have her first year done. I was trying to get motivated to complete the book but was having trouble figuring out where to start. I'm now on the road to completion. Here is what I did:

1. Pick a end point for your book. For me I'm just focusing on Kaitlyn's First year.

2. Decide what you want to scrap. Go through your photos for the time period you selected and figure out what events you want to scrap. Going in chronological order helps. You may have to go through the photos on your computer and the one's you have printed out. Make a list of the pages you want to complete as you go through your photos. Make sure you put the date of the event and whether or not you need to print photos. Remember you don't have to scrap every single moment.

3. Decide where you want to print your photos. I usually use Snapfish.com or Costco.com to print my pictures. I like Snapfish because you can have them sent right to your house, or you can pick them up at participating locations. Costco is also nice because you can set it up to put the event information and date on the back of the pictures. When you print your photos order some 5 x 7 or 8 x 10's, it's nice to have different size pictures when you are Scrapbooking.

4. Organize your photos by page layouts. Once you receive your photos in the mail, or in my case pull out the box of already printed photos, sort them by layout. Something that helps is to get your album and put the photos in the plastic sleeves for each page.

5. Collect supplies. Start with your first page and set of pictures, go through your existing supplies and find coordinating paper and embellishments. Do this for each layout and slide the coordinating papers and embellishments into the sleeves with your pictures. If you don't have a huge stockpile of paper and embellishments bring your scrapbook with all the photos sorted and tucked in the sleeves to Scrap-n-Stamp. We can help you find the paper and embellishments you will need to scrap.

6. Scrap your pages!! Most people like to go in order from the start of the book to the finish. Sometimes I just lack motivation and inspiration, so with Kaitlyn's book I scrap to the corresponding month. So this month I was inspired by the St. Patties day paper, so I scrapped her first Saint Patties day(below) and Easter.

I hope this helps you get organized and get Scrappin'.......

April Showers

Funny story, my mom sent the kids rain boots and I was trying to think of what kind of card I was going to make her, and was contemplating cutting out rain boots on my Pazzle. I hadn't had time to look on the Pazzle, but I happened to go to Scrap-n-Stamp for a crop night and I saw this Three Bugs paper that we just received. It was exactly what I was looking for and of course had to purchase some :-)
I cut out the rain boots, applied glossy accents and added pop-up foam to the back.

I think it turned out pretty cute. This paper would also perfect to scrapbook some outdoor rainy day puddle jumping. come by and check out the rest of the April Showers Collection by Three Bugs in a Rug.

Love Birds.....

Valentine's Day is over, but we still have some great Valentine's Day paper and embellishments. My favorite is the Crush collection from Bo Bunny. Just think of all the things you could use this paper for.... It's not just for Valentine's Day. You could make a cute Anniversary Card, or if you are throwing a Bridal shower for one of your girl-friends this paper would make cute invites or a card for the bride-to-be. Don't forget you could always scrapbook pictures from Valentine's Day. Here is a quick card I made just for fun.

These are a few of our favorite things...

A week ago I shared my favorite thing. I was thinking I should get the other girls input and share their favorite things. Everyone has such different techniques, likes and insight when it comes to paper craft. I hope you enjoy a few of our favorite things and are inspired to try something new. This week I'm featuring Renee's favorite thing....

I didn't ask her, but by looking at all the projects she does I know she loves to make mini-albums. Whether its Chipboard, acrylic or corrugated she is the master of mini-albums, and is ubber talented. Above are just a few of her fabulous creations. Funny, I went to the store after drafting this blog and was talking to Renee about her favorite thing, and she was busy at work creating a new Princess Castle Acrylic Album.

Renee's supper sporty Basketball Chipboard Album
The canvas for Renee's next Creation....Stay tuned for the finished product.

Coming soon....

As some of you know I served 8 years in the US Army, after that many years I of course have a ton of memories to Scrap. I have not been motivated to go back and preserve these memories until now. Debbie and Renee are always on the lookout for great new products for the store, and this time I think they ordered the coolest Military Scrapbooks I have ever seen.... These scrapbooks are covered with the actual Military uniforms, they even have a spot to add your name tape and rank. If you served in the Military or know someone who has, you need one of these scrapbooks!!! Ladies, these are going to go fast. I recommend you call the store and pre-pay for your book today. Check out the pictures below:

These are a few of my....

Favorite things!!! I was working last Saturday and was trying to think of new and interesting things to blog. When I thought maybe you would like to know some of the girls@ Scrap-n-Stamps favorite things, and how they like to use them. We will start with my favorite:


Besides that fact that Stickles are so easy to use, they are very versatile. Here are some ideas of different ways you can use Stickles in card making and scrapbooking:

Here is an idea from the Ranger Ink website:

Before Stickles:
After Stickles:

Here Kim added Stickles around the edges of a die cut flower to make it pop:

There are a ton more ways to use Stickles. Add them on sticker or chipboard letters to give them an entirely different look. If you like to use stamps, they are great to make your stamped image sparkle. And as you can see in the first picture they come in a ton of different colors. Don't forget our anniversary sale is this Saturday (10am-6pm) and everything is 25% off!!!
