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!!!

Happy President's Day

Presidents' Day is celebrated in February to honor two of our greatest presidents, Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. Here is some great information to share with your kids:

George Washington was born on February 22, 1732. When he was born, America was not a nation yet. It belonged to England, a country across the ocean. People in America didn't want to belong to England so they fought a war to become a separate country. George Washington was an American general in the war. America won the war and picked a new name for itself: The United States of America. George Washington was elected to be its first President.

Abraham Lincoln was born on February 12 in 1809. Things were different then. When Abe was a boy, he lived in a log cabin. A log cabin is a small house made out of logs cut from trees. His father cut down the trees and made the cabin. In 1861, Abraham Lincoln became the 16th President of the United States. (
