That is the sound of me...falling off the face of the earth!!! Oh wait...I think it was the sound of me trying to get out from under all of the BOXES in the store!!
Girls, I'm sorry to leave ya hanging for so long! I've been a bad bad blogger! We've ben planning our summer vacations, camping weekends, and trying to get plans for CHA ready. I've also been ordering stuff for the kits through the summer, matching cardstock, choosing embellishments, etc. Not to mention getting some gorgeous mid-release goodies in the store.
In the midst of all of this, I've been searching for a place to call my "own". The store has outgrown my basement. I have lots of new things to show you, but there is just no more room. So...I've begun a hunt for a place to open up an actual store! EEKS! :)
So.....that means, there's a LOT of catching up to do in one post!! And we have a LOT of things going on! Let's start with the "Make Me a Super Scrapper" contest over at the message board! This is going to be a fun contest...but we need participants! So, if you're not registered, head over HERE and register at the site. Check out the MMASS special forum on the board, read the rules, etc and then sign up to play with us! This is a 6 week challenge/contest where you will be limited to a certain manufacturer every week. Companies we're playing with are Doodlebug, SEI, Piggy Tales, Sassafras Lass, and KI Memories. The first week, you're free to use whatever manufacturer you want, but after that, 90% of your layout needs to be with the above companies.
If you don't have much in your stash from these companies...never fear! We'll be putting together a little sample kit that you can get at the store, OR you can get what you need from the store just by shopping by manufacturer.
AND, the new JUNE KITS were released on the 1st and I totally missed it here on the blog. So, here is some pictures of the kits...you can find them in the store as well. Remember, these are limited in number so you'll want to get yours before they're sold out!
Fashionista is our first kit. This BEAUTIFUL kit features papers from the new Heidi Swapp Carefree collection, and Fancy Pants Simplicity collection. You get 6 pieces of cardstock, 1 is a scallop circle diecut, and you also get a piece of Core'dinations cardstock to try out. If you haven't tried this cardstock...it's really fun! The "core" of the cardstock is a shade lighter so when you tear it, sand it or distress it, you get to see the lighter shade!! Of course you get some great embellishments with this kit as well. American Crafts vinyl alphabet stickers, Heidi Swapp Carefree mask, American Crafts Details sticker embellishments, Kaiser Crafts rhinestone swirls, Tim Holtz pins, Fancy Pants pins, American Crafts photo turns, and Cosmo Cricket lacing cards.
Our second kit is Summer Afternoon. This kit is full of bright colors and mixes contemporary with classic patterns. October Afternoon Detours and Rouge d'Garance papers are the base of this kit with coordinating Bazzill and Core'dinations Cardstocks. Embellishments include Polar Bear Press rubon alphabet, Kaiser Crafts big rhinestones, Cloud 9 raindrop eyelet stickers, Maya Road Office sheers, American Crafts slick writer, buttons, October Afternoon diecut sheet, and Fancy Pants journaling cards round out this colorful kit.
The Design Team has been busy creating with these kits! You can check out their work in the gallery HERE.
