new flair

here are some layouts that i found on flair's website using the family ties line we just got in. they have every family member included: mom, dad, cousins, you name it.

these are some really cool pages and the best part is that they are so easy to scraplift and make your own.

happy scrapping,

creative cafe

i know it has been a while since we have posted a creative cafe project. just like so many other things in our lives creative cafe goes in cycles. we get projects ready no one asks for them. we hold off for a week or two (ok maybe more). then we have tons of people asking for the projects again. so... here is this week's project. a really cute layout for just $5.

stop in to make this project or call and reserve a kit. if you are asking for a kit please let us know by friday. that helps save our sanity when we get ready for next week's project we know we can pack up this one and move on. with summer fast approaching start making plans to attend creative cafe and get a quick project done.
happy scrapping,

new paper and embellishments

i told you i would post pictures of the new stuff soon. well time got away from me and really how any days can pass before it is no longer soon?

here are some images of the new lime rickey. it is going fast. i am out of paper packs already, but can always order more if you want one-and i will be ordering one for me-i didn't grab one soon enough:).
wisteria has hit the paper garden as well. if you love purple then this is the line for you.

we also got in new lines from crate paper. here is a layout from crate's website. if you look in my album later you just might find that i scraplifted this one. i think it is darling.

here is a small sampling of these new lines. the die cut sheets are glitter, which i think is super cool.

happy scrapping

National Scrapbook Weekend Retreat

we had a blast at the national scrapbook day weekend retreat. everytime someone who works for the hotel makes this statement "there is more stuff in that room than people." it is true. all that stuff and so much fun.

there is serious scrapbook done, but i think there is always more talking. as we all know the visiting is what makes these so much fun.

the group photo shoot. i check to make sure everyone is in place, then i run to the chant "run tara run" and get in the picture. if you have ever seen a group photo before you will see that i am in my spot. everyone knows that is my spot. we had 90 women in this ballroom.

this is smitty, and he is holding his first ever layout. he decided he wanted to join the fun so i grabbed some paper, pictures, stickers, scissors, trimmer and adhesive. he was in business. his daughter's were not impressed with his page the next morning when he showed it to them. it was missing all the cute stuff. by the way, he is wearing a small tshirt, i am shocked he got in it.
this is the rest of the coaches and parents to the basketball girls that were staying in the hotel that night. they completed another layout as a group project. and believe me they needed everyone's input (look at the table if you have't guessed why).
all in all it was a great weekend. can't wait for the next one. check out the countdown if you need to know when it is.
happy scrapping.
