Hi everyone!! It’s so nice to be here! This is my first time blogging at CK but certainly not my first time here. I’ve been a HUGE fan of Creating Keepsakes magazine as well as their online community, Club CK.
Some of you might remember me as “scrap-yak” on the message boards a couple of years ago. I love the scrapbook community! Everyone is so nice and very willing to help another “scrapper” in need! I’ve made some great friends and a few that I’ve been able to meet in real life at a couple Creating Keepsakes Conventions. My friend, Steph, who I met on the CK message boards, has even traveled to my hometown and stayed with me. I just love her and we have a great time together thanks to Creating Keepsakes–and scrapbooking too, of course!!
These are just a few of the things that I love about this hobby which now has become my business! Even saying that is still crazy to me. . .it’s a dream. . .can someone pinch me, PLEASE!
I have six brand new spring paper lines being released at the Winter 2011 Craft & Hobby Association conference and trade show, and I’d love to share them with you! I’m so excited about this release; I think it’s my best yet!! So here they are along with little bit about each of them.
It’s Raining, It’s Pouring:
(It’s Raining, It’s Pouring is the perfect spring paper line featuring “Tubby the Turtle”! Tubby will get you through all the April showers so you can enjoy the May flowers!)
We Are Family:
(We are Family is a wonderful paper line for everything “family,” with cute little houses, funny looking trees and a few kites too!)
Max & Mollie:
(Max & Mollie are the cutest little “stinkers” around! I have twin niece and nephew and their names are Max & Mollie, so they were my inspiration behind this sweet paper line!)
(Summer celebrates all the great images we think of when we think of summer! This paper line has cute little bugs, ice cream cones, cameras, and I didn’t forget the neighborhood ice cream truck!)
It’s Your Day:
(It’s Your Day is about celebrating birthdays! The colors in this collection are great for both girls and boys. And whether it’s for your little ones or the “grown-ups” in your life, this is the perfect paper line to scrapbook all those birthday pictures!)
(Beatrice, sweet, sweet Beatrice, is a continued story from my Fall 2010 paper line called Tree Love where “Bucky the Beaver” was introduced. Beatrice is Bucky’s girlfriend and she will take you from summer into the early days of fall with the warm color pallet and graphic designs. I’m sure you’ll fall in love with her just like Bucky did!)
Here are a couple of projects I created using two of these paper lines.
