Schools In

Yes my children went back to school today after a two week break, love having them home and I love seeing them start back at school again, lol.

I thought I might show you something I made over the holidays, my girls and I love to get crafty, especially now that it is a bit cooler here. Over the years we have all made so many craft projects and they have done school projects and I've photographed them so I made this little album just to house these photos, it's not completely finished, that will take quite some time but it was so much fun making it and I'm really pleased with the result. The cover has some old jewels, a broken chain, some random scrapbooking embellishments and a broken beaded bracelet put together to form a piece of jewelry, there are ribbons on the spine and various papers along with a bit of fussy cutting (I can't remember the product names as it's been way over a year since I've paper scrapbooked).

While I was making this album it also gave me the opportunity to see my 'stash' of craft goodies again and to see what I need and don't need, must be that 'spring cleaning' thing I guess but we gave the cupboard a good tidy up that's for sure.

Maybe next holidays we can finish it off as there's only a couple of 'title pages' done so far, yes this could take quite some time but it's time well spent with my girls :)

New Mini Kit and Part 2 Quickpage Album

I have this little Mini Kit that I've made up from some PB's that were never used at Cottage Scrapbooks for the month of April. It has six papers and 19 elements and would be great for many kinds of layouts.Along with this I have the second part to my 'Mother's Day Quickpage Album' which has 8 different Quickpages in both 12x12 and 8x8 inch sizes, a great way to get an early start on your Mother's Day gifts.

So all in all this album has 16 pages with both Part 1 and Part 2.

Both these new items are on Sale in my SAS-y Store for one week only at 30% off.

A word on my Stores, you may have seen them diminishing lately, well this is no fault of my own, lol, as you know Cottage Scrapbooks closed a couple of weeks ago now due to unfortunate circumstances and now I've been informed that Scrapladies is also shutting up shop which leaves me with my wonderful SAS-y Store, the only place you can purchase my kits.

Freebie ... but The Cottage has Gone

It's with a sad heart that I tell you that due to unavoidable circumstances Cottage Scrapbooks has gone, unfortunately the owners were having trouble with the site upgrade and things happened during this time and the whole site had to be 'disconnected' ..... I met some lovely ladies at the Cottage and I hope to see them around the Digiworld still, if you were one of my customers at the Cottage please be aware that I am still selling at SAS and Scrapladies and you are most welcome to join my challenges at SAS and make yourself comfortable there.

I will really miss the Cottage because it was somewhere I could chat and relax, have a bit of fun and just know that I was welcome no matter what. It's a shame that sites like this close because these are the sites that really make being a Designer or Scrapper enjoyable, the friendships we share.

Well I have this small freebie which has two papers and four elements for you which was to be in the Cottage Mid-Month Newsletter but rather than it going to waste I'm giving it away to you here, enjoy.

Free Quickpage - Easter of Old

Well this is a nice Quckpage for you just in time for Easter, although I'm sure you'll agree it is not limited to Easter layouts.

I've put this together using my new little kit 'Easter of Old' which is a lovely little kit with a nostalgic theme containing 9 papers and 27 elements and it is on Sale for one week only at my SAS-y Store :)

The SAS Newsletter is out again, the first with our new Owner Toiny (and help from Karin Allright) so it's a little smaller than normal while she is still learning the ropes. I'm sure each Newsletter from now on will be bigger and better than the one before.

Breathing New LIfe into SAS

Well the last week has been full of ups and quite a few downs, SAS was almost gone and there were quite a few very sad SAS-y ladies to say the least. It was almost D-day and then the good news came ..... and I quote ...

"I am beyond excited. The world spins in such mysterious ways. Last week things were looking very sad in my world. Stone Accents Studio was losing it's leaders and in danger of closing its doors. Real life has a way of affecting things in the digi world. And vice versa. Because one thing led to another and I have been incredibly blessed... I am the new owner of Stone Accents Studio!I know! I am as stunned as all y'all. And completely, totally excited! Stone Accents Studio was my first "home" here in scrapland. It is still my favorite home. SAS is known for its wonderfully warm, accepting, nurturing environment to scrappers & designers alike. It is my mission to continue to foster that culture as the new owner.I also have a vision to build SAS up into a bigger, brighter version of itself. I am doubly blessed to have some of the most fabulous designers out there stay with me and see me through this transition. Because it is a transition! So come visit, pardon our dust as we shake things up a little, jostle people into new roles, throw some learning curves (especially me!) and continue to make SAS the friendliest site on the web. "

'Many congratulations to Toiny' who I greatly admire and had the honour of working with not so long ago when we did a collab together called 'Carnival'.

Thankyou Toiny for saving one of the BEST digiscrapping sites .... no no I should say 'homes' on the web, I'm with you all the way :) Ahhhhhhhh life is good
