Scrapbooking Bug Among Us

I love scrapbooking. I started scrapbooking about 2 years ago and i enjoyed ever since.

But once I tried it, I was completely hooked! So many of my friends tell me they just don’t get the whole scrapbooking craze. And my answer to them is, “then you’ve never scrapped a page. Get back to me when you do.” Cuz let’s face it… once you’ve scrapped one page, the scrapbooking bug is with you forever. And the only way to get rid of that itch is to just scratch it.

One other things that i really treasure is meeting other it my local customers, my overseas customers or even my counterpart whereever they are.

Today, I had a great oppportunity meeting a talented scrapper who is also a mum , running a scrapping business in NSW, Australia. It was arranged by my dearest Lili and we all sat together chatting, exchange ideas, taking pictures and lunch!

She was here for a short vacation with her friend Joanne. Kelly sells Kaisercraft scrapbooking and craft products, called ‘From A Mothers Art’. She is also a fully trained and qualified scrapbooking counsellor. You can view here wonderful piece of art at her blog.

Coming Soon in 2 Weeks time!

We will be having new lines from MAMBI and Basic Grey. I've also received a confirmation that we will be having some top ups on Tattered Angels Glimmer Screens, Kaiser Mumma Bushka Misha Papers, Tim Holtz Masks and some WER stuff.

I'm actually very excited about BG latest collections. Both of them are lovely- and they're VERY different from each other. Wisteria is soothing in lovely shades of lilac, plum, periwinkle, cream, mint, toffee and sky. Lime Rickey is wild and rambunctious, with bright bold colors and patterns perfect for kids pages and mini books. It reminds me of their very popular Color Me Silly line from a few years back, but instead of the frogs, they have some funky birds that are really cute.

Don't forget to swing by and pick up some of these great new things. They're sure to bring a smile to your face and some inspiration to your worktable.

Paper Transformations

I did a layout transformation by using the latest SEI Bridgeport - Springside Varnish Paper. Springside from SEI's Bridgeport line is a spring day with flowers, butterflies and vines.The images are varnished and raised from the surface of the paper - incredible and fun to work with.
But i decided to use the back of the paper which is plain as my background. Lots of us as scrapper find it hard to scrap on a simple plain or cluttered paper like this. We're always ended up feeling messed up thinking hard where can we place the photos, embellishment and so on. Here's what i've done....maybe it will give u a little tips on how to use this paper better.
