What a great day!

Had a great time scrapping with friends this Saturday at Scrappin' U! There were some amazing pages being created, fantastic food and lots of it and even more laughter! It's so fun to talk with everyone.

Our next Scrappin' U and the last one for the year is going to be held May 10th. Details and registration will be on the website at We only have 30 seats available for these so don't delay. This would be a great gift from hubby and the kids for mother's day. An entire day just for you! My hubby Greg has been nominated to bring his famous potato soup for dinner. It's yummy, in fact he was told he has to bring two crock pots of it cause they don't like licking the bottom of the pot! :-)

Our Kansas City Round Robin Bus trip is a go! We will be going to KC on June 28th, leaving Joplin, MO at 7:00am. We will have registration and all the details on the website on May 1st. Only 45 seats available! Watch for the newsletter for more details!

Have a great week!

The Scrapbooker's Bill of Rights

Just for Fun: The Scrapbooker's Bill of Rights

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 a) you like it; b) you think it's cute; c) you'll never find it again, or; d) 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.

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—whether or not it's the latest trend.

You have the right to do nothing more than snack and socialize at a 2 day 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.

You have the right to create your own legacy, one page at a time.

Thanks for sharing this with us Irene, notice I changed the cropping time from 6 hours to 2 days since that's what most of our crops are!! Have a great weekend everyone!

It's Friday already!

Whew, where did this week go? Geez, the weeks almost gone again!! I've been working like a crazy lady yet don't seem to have accomplished much! Hope you had a great week!

This weekend I'll be scrapping with a great group of ladies at our April Scrappin' U. I do have two seats left if you are interested in spending a fun day of scrapping for only $12.00. Contact me by email at if you want to join us Saturday, the 26th.

This is the new acrylic album kit I've designed using MOSD Cover to Cover Album. It was so much fun to make. It's hard to tell in the pictures but it has an acrylic front and back cover (front cover shown peeking into first page of album) with chipboard tab pages on the inside. It's even got some fun little half pages inside as shown below. Very fun to make and looks great with your pictures in it!

Today's creation...

I got it finished! It's designed, it's packed, it's headed to Mesa, Arizona for the Creating Keepsakes show then on to Wendy's store at Mom and I cut, packed and shipped 50 of these little guys today. It's so fun! 10 pages of little boy cuteness! LOTS of precut mats, pages and embellishments!!
What do you think?

I'm gonna work on some new page kits tomorrow, we'll see how that
goes! I need to get some new ones for the shows and need 6 new pages
the Arkansas class group. I've got some fun ideas in mind, now to get them to reality!!

Have a great Tuesday!!

Do you ever?

Get in a rut? I've been in one lately, I can't seem to get in the mood to do a page layout for the life of me! Now board books and acrylic albums, I'm on a bit of a roll!! Funny how that goes huh? Here's the newest board book, I called it Girly Girl simply because it's all those fun, bright colors that just shout "girly girl".

This is a fun 5 x 5 board book kit filled to the brim with newMy Mind's Eye papers, tons of fun ribbon and embellishments. What's crazy is that everything, all papers are cut for you. The only thing you have to cut is the ribbons. I've even rounded every corner for you! Crazy, I know but there's more. I've even stacked the pages in the order that you will use them and included colored instructions!! If you like this fun little girly book as much as I do head over to and click on the What's New button. Wendy's selling them in the store and at all Creating Keepsakes shows. I'm working on the boy version tonight, hoping to finish it up tomorrow. I'll post pictures of it when it's finished.

What do you do when you are in a rut? Do you have places you go to seek inspiration? Great websites? Magazines? Catalogs? Do you just walk away until something strikes you again? I'd love to hear what inspires you to create, is it your pictures? Paper? Ribbon? I'd have to say I will often times find a yummy ribbon and that will spark an entire page/book. I know, weird? I just LOVE ribbon, as you can tell from the book above!! LOL!! I better get back to work on the boy version of this book, have a great Monday!!

Are you serious?

Has it really been over a month since I posted to the blog? Where does time go? Let's see, since I last posted I've been to Orlando, Florida for the Scrapbook Expo show and St. Louis teaching for Lickety Split Scrapbooks at the Creating Keepsakes Show. I've had the great pleasure of teaching 4 classes each day, an awesome 8 x 8 Disney book, a 5 x 5 Recipe for Happiness book, a totally cool, totally custom heart shaped chipboard album and a fun little layout class. These classes are so fun to teach and of course I love meeting new scrappers!

We also hosted Spring Fling and wow was that a fun group of ladies! We were sold out and had a great mix of new customers and returning customers. We had a blast with the blue lights, the new paper train and of course all the new product which they pretty much wiped me out of!

As for upcomming events, we have our Scrappin' U scheduled for April 26th and we only have less than 7 seats left. Details and registration can be found at

I've also posted details on the upcoming bus trip to Kansas City at the message boards at Scroll down to bus trips and read all the details! Registration will open May 1st and will close when full or on June 1st. Only 50 seats available so go check out details now!!

You'll also want to mark your calendars for our Beat the Heat crop on July 11th and 12th. Further details will be coming soon!

Have a great week!!
