I just stopped by my mail box and this is what was waiting for me...

A little bitty Smash book from K&Company!! For those of you who don't know what a Smash book is it's a really cool way to store your thoughts and can see more about it here

There has been a delay in the arrival of these books so to appease the rabid public K&co offered up 400 of these mini smashes to the first people who left comments on their blog.

Even though the book is only about 5X3 it is still full of goodness including little tags to smash onto the 17 pages.

There was this cute little card with the blog on it and I suggest you check it out cause they have been giving away the full size Smash books!

The full size Smash books won't be in the store for a while yet but I can't wait to get my hands on one!

I hope you HOP along to the other blogs and don't forget to leave a comment on each and then back on the Forum when you are all done!



Two Scrapbook Friends had another fabulous year at Scrapfest. Our booth was rockin' all weekend long and everyone was having a great time. It was awesome to see so many of our regulars and also lots of new faces.

I had a proud moment when I took some pics of the booth and saw all of the new kits I'd created

More kits and the banner I made using the the store's blog for more coolness coming with this system

Our booth was hoppin' all weekend, this was the only time the make and take tables didn't have huge lines!

ooooh something new for TSF...FABRIC!!

The shelves, all full and ready to go.

Such a fun, exhausting couple of days!

Can't wait for next year!!

totally tubular!

In my Design team reveal post I mentioned that we each received a little plastic tube to decorate. These are something new and very exciting that you'll see around the store. These food safe tubes will be the perfect gift/favour for any occasion. I've filled mine with beads and twine as a little party favour but the ideas are only as limited as your imagination.

Wait til you see what the other ladies came up with!!

Design team reveal!

This month's kit from TSF (two scrapbook friends) held a few surprises for me. Each team member was given a "Beyond the Page" project from Kaisercraft as well as a little plastic tube. Our focus was the BTP and then with whatever we had left we could create layouts/cards.

I was THRILLED to get one of the new trays to decorate because I've wanted to do one for awhile. The paper line I was given was from My Mind's Eye's Stella & Rose, Hattie collection and well I couldn't have been happier.

I used a layers of vintage photo ink and tattered leather Glimmer mist to cover the wood

I picked up some of the extra embellishments that coordinated with the collection

I added wired ribbon, buttons and raffia from my stash

I cut these flowers out of a patterned paper then rolled them up

Can you see the tulle behind this photo?? Love the tiny little lock that is also MME

I made this layout with what I had left and some buttons from my stash

When I first stuck the buttons down I thought they looked bare so I hand stitched them
