Another great tool to add to your tool box is the Heidi Swapp Edge Distresser. When you rough up the edges of a layout, die cut, photo frame or journaling block it just seems to add that extra texture and character to take your project from good to fabulous! So, on your next visit to Scrappin’ Good Times check out the Heidi Swapp Edge Distresser. I love mine.

The Tim Holtz mini-stapler is a great addition to your tool supplies. This is very handy to use to attach little tags, ribbon or any small items to your pages and projects. The mini-stapler has been re-ordered so look for it soon in the store. Become a member of OPERATION: SAVE SGT and receive your discount on your mini-stapler purchase. See you soon.

I stumbled on this website, which has a variety of camera strap slipcovers. There are many patterns to choose from and what a unique mother’s day gift this would make for the photographer in your family. Just thought I’d pass this along.

Graduation time is fast approaching. Take a look at the new graduation themed paper from The Paper Company, Hats Off What Next line. I did a layout using this paper that will be displayed in the store in May in case you need any graduation layout ideas. Stop by and check it out.

If you are looking for an easy way to add dimension to your layouts don’t forget scallops. Layering multiple scalloped borders, stamping small images on a scalloped border or punching holes in a scalloped edge are just a few ideas for a unique look.  The die-cut center at Scrappin’ Good Times has many die cuts with scallops. After a brief training on the use of the die-cut machines and a minimal fee you can use the die-cut center and all that it has to offer to help you enhance your layouts. Stop by and check it out.

There is a wonderful selection of vintage paper out right now and buttons make great embellishments. Big buttons are all the rage, often grouped together or used individually to make a single statement.  We all have premade buttons but think about making your own out of chipboard, felt, fabric or paper. With spring in the air, buttons make great flower centers.  Just something to think about.

sisters-2page-layoutNew this spring from Basic Grey is the Porcelain line.
I did a two-page layout of my daughters using
this paper and I just love it! This will be hitting the Scrappin’ Good Times shelf very soon so stop in and check it out and start planning your layout now!


As some of you know I have a new addition to
my family, an 8-week old soft coated wheaton
terrier my daughter named Riley. So, of course,
I’ve been taking many pictures of him. I found
some very cute pet themed paper at Scrappin’
Good Times by Stemma and by Sonburn. Even
if you don’t have a new pet in your family don’t
forget to scrap photos of your best companion.
I hope to have my 2 page layout of Riley finished
this week so stop by the store and see the new
guy in my life! He’s definitely a “sweetie”.

We had a great time last night at the Quickutz
Club. The project was a french fry box designed
by Good Time Girl Cindy. It is sooo cute and I
plan to put either licorice or suckers in mine and
give to my valentine.

As I’m spending this special Christmas Day with
my immediate family I want to wish my extended
family at Scrappin’ Good Times a very special
day too. Also, if for some reason you did not
get everything on your Christmas list, stop by
Scrappin’ Good Times very soon, they will have
everything your little heart desires. Happy
