Fun times at the expo

I forgot to post pictures I took at our local scrapbook and stamps expo :-) It was sooooooo much fun! Thank you for coming Gi you're the best! After a quick stop at a vendor's booth we hurried to our favorite spot "Stamp-a-lot" (my awesome LSS) to visit Josie and show support, she had some new items to wow the crowd and we took advantage and bought cute stamps and now my favorite the "Glue Glider Pro" (check out her blog at it's new but soon there will be challenges and cool prizes and of course blog candy too!!!)

Elmo Birthday Invites

Hi guys,
my little blessing is turning 2 in a few weeks! He absolutely loves Elmo and Sesame Street so having a SS themed party with his favorite characters. I made this card using my SS cartridge, the inside I did on my pc :-) Thanks for looking!

Video Tutorial-Save your mats, save money!

Cricut Mat Tutorial

Not too long ago someone on the Cricut MB posted some information on how to reuse your mats and I said to myself I want to try this to see if it worked. This weekend I went to all my craft stores and could not find the 12X12 mats anywhere. So I decided to try the method of scrubbing and applying the glue on the mat and guess what? It worked!!!! I was so excited I did at least 4 mats (yes I have been saving all of my mats lol). I was so happy I decided to do my first video tutorial to share with you guys. Be easy on the editing this is my very first video :-)

Local Scrapbook Love <3

There is really nothing like a local scrapbook store (AKA "LSS"), the owner is a crafter with tons of talents, loves to show you new techiniques and unlike major chain stores know about the new and old products ancd can show you about them!
No matter what the coupons and incentives I have always loved visiting my LSS and did so nonstop when I lived in Tallahassee, FL (the capital).
I am truly saddened by the state of our economy and the effect it has had on our LSSs all over the US. I was really involved during my undergrad years in Tallahassee with my LSS, always participated in classes and even helped to teach some............absolutely loved it! I moved to South Florida after graduation and shortly started my grad studies and a family so I did not get too much into the scrapping scene until I first got my cricut that I wanted for so long and most importantly falling in love with a local scrapbbok store called "Stamp-A-Lot"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The owner is truly as my students would put it "The BOMB!" and it is always a joy to go there and find new goodies or enjoy a class.
I say all of this to encourage you all to support your LSS because they are truly unique and any true paper scrapper genuinely want to preserve them :-)

Howdy :-)
