Vita Bella & Beyond the Sea 50% off + NEWS

This one will be long!

I don't even know where to begin. Well I guess I'll start with the Scrapbooking stuff.

Vita Bella just came in from Little Yellow Bicycle. This beautiful line is so elegant. Oh and did I mention that right now this brand new paper is 50% OFF? Yes I said 50% off. The paper sale was extended until June 29th so hurry by the store. Where else are you going to get BRAND NEW PAPER at 50% off.

Heidi Grace is in - Beyond the Sea is a great summer inspired line. This paper too can be purchased for 50% off until June 29th don't miss out on this deal.

Ok now on to more personal but still Everything Scrapp'n Related. First and most important is I hired a new web designer today. He is going to help me make the site more efficient and help get my name out there even more. This means more shoppers and more shoppers means more STOCK! I can't wait to see how this will improve the site. Oh as a side note - Sometime over the next week the site might be hard to get on. Tony said that he will make the transition as smooth as possible with as little down time as possible but I did want to give you all a heads up!

Lastly: As some of you know it was always my passion to have a physical store with classes and crops and interaction with customers. This dream is closer faster than I thought. I have found a place that is in a great location and is very affordable with a great contract. I'm working on the financing this week. I can't wait. My service to my great online customers will not change but all this means I can bring you more lines and product. I'm so excited! Now if I could just find time to scrap LOL.

this was me a year ago setting up my internet store

I hope you all have a great week!!!

Paper Sale & Scrapp'n Tip

Now is the time to get those more expensive papers you may have been shying away from. With 50% off all papers it puts those great lace papers and scalloped papers down to the price or regular papers and with the regular papers so low you can stock up now for those lazy days of summer.

Tip: Scrap early in the morning before the days activities get started. By spending just 30 to 45 minutes each morning you would be surprised at what you will accomplish. Also by doing your scrapping early you free up the whole rest of the day to hang out with your kids by the pool.

Scrapp'n Is The Issue

Tonight I don't have anything new just wanted to share: I find myself sitting here in front of the computer at 9pm wondering when the last time I scrapped anything was. I also find myself thinking about the stacks of stuff that have been placed on top of my scrapping area. It frustrates me that I'm supposed to be an owner of a scrapbooking store and I don't have layouts each day or even each week that I can post to help inspire people to scrap. I do however know that this post will help many men and women out there.

Whether you work outside of the home or in the home life is a full time job and finding time is just hard. Today I really wanted to go and clean up my scrapping area but between shuttling my kids to their friends homes and making sure that the checks were in the bank, gas was in the truck and the dry cleaning got picked up, not to mention that I was keeping two children for someone else and had to work on the website I just ran out of time.

I know there are many of us out there who feel the same. I hope that my little vent helps you to know that you aren't alone out there. We must just try and one day we will get it done. This is a hobby and we should love what we do and do what we love. Don't give up!

Here is a sketch from Rusty Pickle's May Challenge that I thought was really nice.

Share and Tell by Pebbles Inc.

OMG I'm so excited about the new albums I've received at the store. These are the coolest albums I've EVER seen. You can choose how much to scrap. I personally plan to use this on my 2006 year. I got so behind I just skipped it, with only a few exceptions. I have about 10 layouts that need a home and I hated for them to be in one place and my pics in another. This album fixed that problem for me. I will be able to put my 4 x 6 pictures in the album and scrap those "Totally must scrap" pictures. Also they offer journaling cards in the 4 x 6 size that will allow you to Journal or scrap something to highlight those photos. I absolutely can't wait to get some time to go and start filling one of these up.

Now in addition to my opinion of this album let me tell you about them. I met the lady who came up with this idea at the Winter CHA. She was such a cool lady! She is like us all, pushed for time. So she designed this album. Now once she designed it she didn't stop there. She made sure that the quality and the look were 100% +. She told me that they would not be able to ship them right after CHA because the first batch came in and she was not happy with the quality. So they were sent back to be done to a higher standard. I have to say after holding one of these in my hand they feel great. They are firm and sturdy. They are a leather like material. The corners are protected with metal to keep them looking nice after being put on and off a shelf for many years. The binding is wide to hold lots of pages and provides you a place to insert a card to let you and others know what is in that album.

Well I guess you can tell I'm excited about this album. I hope that you are also! Try one. They retail for 29.99 and are 20% off till June 11th at the store. Double click on this post's title and it will take you to the store.

Scrapbooking Recipes

With the holidays coming so fast we need more hours in our day. One way I've found to help is quick and easy meals. Here is one that I love to use when I have a full day.

Lazy Log Cabin Casserole:

1lb stew meat cubed
1 can of Cream of Celery
1 can of Cram of Mushroom
1 packet of Beef Onion Soup (I don't use this. I just add salt, pepper, garlic powder and dried minced onions but I'm an eye ball cook)
Toss all this in the crock pot together give it a stir put it on low and cook it for 6 - 8 hours. Home cooked meal with just a few moments prep. Put a salad bag with it and your hubby can't be upset that there isn't a home cooked meal on the table.
