Bo Bunny, Jazmyne—Monday Card Madness #32

Bo Bunny, Jazmyne—Monday Card Madness #32

I hope you all had a lovely Mother’s Day and had a great excuse to get a little crafting time in for yourself or your mother this weekend. If you ended up with a little extra scrappy money to spend, (or just need a great excuse to add some more scrappy goodness to your stash), then you’ll love today’s steal, the Bo Bunny—Jazmyne Collection.

I don’t know if it is the gorgeous plums and greens or if it is the amazing array of embellishments, but it sure made making cards for this week an absolute breeze.

The embellishments for this collection really mapped the way for my cards. I just love the springtime, feminine feel of this collection.

It was such a treat over the past week to see cards popping up on our Facebook page which were crafted for Mother’s Day.

I love that Stephanie Umpleby got her little helpers involved on these cards for Grandma.

And I love the color scheme and paper flower on this card by Kristin Hoffart.

I can’t believe it’s been another month of card making for all of us at ScrapbookSteals.

We’d like to shout out a  huge congratulations to Kelly Marks, our lucky random winner for the month of April.

Kelly, if you can please send us an email to, we will be happy to get a prize sent out to you.

I know a lot of you have been asking if you could participate in another card swap. Our first one was such a great success that I think it’s time to get our second card swap organized.

Here are the details:

  • Create 10 cards of any variety, signed on the back (we all want to know who made what)
  • Cards must include envelopes
  • Mail the cards to our warehouse, to be received no later than June 3oth. (ScrapbookSteals, ATTN: Card Swap, 2181 S. California Ave., #400, SLC, UT  84104)
  • Email me at once your cards have shipped so that I know whose cards to be on the lookout for.
  • I will then swap the cards and return cards from 10 different artists to you.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!

I hope you have a great Monday. Be sure to check in at 9am tomorrow for another great How To’sday, this time by Charity Becker.

Silhouette Machine—Simply Put, Amazing!

Silhouette Machine—Simply Put, Amazing!

I quite literally breathe a little sigh that’s a mixture of love, adoration, satisfaction and amazement each time I power up my Silhouette. In my humble opinion, today’s steal, the Silhouette SD Machine has got to be my favorite and most-valued scrapbooking tool—ever! If you don’t have this machine, I promise, you will not be disappointed in making the investment, and with Mother’s Day right around the corner, you’ve got leverage! :)

I’ve had the amazing opportunity of exploring the functions of the Silhouette SD machine in greater depth the past two times that we’ve featured them as a steal on ScrapbookSteals.

The first time I focused on the overall functions of the amazing machine. Check out a few photos of the projects that I did.

The second time around I had a blast working with the fabric interfacing and with some flocked and smooth heat transfer material.  Here are some photos.

Because we are so excited to be offering a huge variety of the Silhouette sketch pens this time around, I decided I’d focus mainly on these, and boy am I glad! I think my machine has just gained a whole new level of appreciation from me!

Because I was a little unsure of what to do with the sketch pens, I turned to the amazing Silhouette blog.

I love how easy the blog is to navigate and how inspiration-filled it is.

I decided to put a twist on the May 2nd. Mother’s Day card tutorial and make a card for my own mama.

I truly cannot believe that I have had my machine for six months and have not explored the glorious option of sketching!

I couldn’t resist making another card for my mother-in-law.

I love that I now know another use for all of those gorgeous, intricate designs which are available to download at the Silhouette store.

I wish all of you the ability to have a Silhouette of your own. I could not live happily, scrappily ever after without mine.

Have a great weekend and an amazing National Scrapbook Day!

Welcome Guest Sketcher Sheryl Kloke | Mid Week Mojo #41

Welcome Guest Sketcher Sheryl Kloke | Mid Week Mojo #41

I’m so excited about our first guest sketcher of the Gold Club series, Sheryl Kloke. Each week she truly inspires with her creations and now it’s her turn to inspire all of you with today’s steal, the We R Memory Keepers, Merry January collection and this week’s mojo sketch.


To say that I was thrilled when Kristy asked me to be a guest sketcher is an understatement! Then I found out that I was going to be working with WRMK “Merry January” and I was a bit concerned… Yes I live in the great white north known as Canada, but I do not like winter! So going through my pictures I found that I take mostly scenery pictures in the winter…and then hurry back inside where it’s warm! I decided to go back in time, and sure enough I found pictures of my kids having lots of fun in winter.

But this wonderful collection is good for so much more than just snow pictures. The colours are so beautiful! The soft aquas and tans are perfect for beach pictures too.

This collection even works perfectly for making cards.

I would like to thank ScrapbookSteals  for giving me this opportunity. I hope everyone enjoys working with the sketch!

Sheryl, thank you so much for sharing your talents with us!
Now for the big anticipated event—to find out who our lucky winners are. First off, our random winner of our weekly drawing is Staci Jones.

We would also like to take a moment to thank all of you amazing scrappers that have stepped it up, once again, and have completed layouts week after week. You should be so thrilled with your accomplishments.
Now we’d like to congratulate commenter #46, Heather Gray .
She is the lucky random winner of our Sapphire Club card kit prize. I actually had to squeal a little as she is truly a passionate card maker. Way to go on completing layouts 31 – 40!

Good luck to all of you as we begin our journey to Gold Club status. Have a great day and scrap happy!

How To’sday | Button Borders by Melissa Dehne

How To’sday | Button Borders by Melissa Dehne

I don’t know about you but after seeing Jana Paddington’s button project, I have a new found love for buttons and can’t seem to have enough! I love this tutorial by Melissa Dehne, showing a fantastic way to use buttons as borders on a scrapbook layout.


Hello Everyone! Happy Tuesday, another one of my favorite days at ScrapbookSteals! My How To’sday today is more of a technique — fun way to use some of the buttons in your stash. I had seen this done in one of the too many blogs that I follow and loved it.

Step 1: Chose your paper (I used My Little Shoebox “City by the Bay” <3) and get a general layout organized with one of the pictures a little separated from the rest. At this point, everything should be adhered to the page.

Step 2: Go to your button stash and choose the colors that go with your layout.

Step 3: Line up buttons to see the color combinations together.

Step 4: Finally, arrange the buttons around the picture in the shape you like. After they are arranged, lift each button and place an adhesive dot to the back and stick it to the paper. I put the glue dot a little off center so it wasn’t covering the holes on the back and so that if I chose to, I could go back and thread each of the buttons without having to push my needle through a sticky dot.

I added my title and embellishments and my layout was complete! I hope that this gave you an idea to use some of the buttons that you have in your scrap supplies. I have also included another idea for using buttons (and some brads) and a sketch for those of you who like to use sketches too.


Thank you Melissa for that fun technique on using buttons. I positively adore buttons and cannot wait to try this out!

If you have an idea that you’d like to share with us, please send it to We want to keep your ideas coming. No idea is too big or too small. We want to be inspired by you.

Stamped Backgrounds | Monday Card Madness #31

Stamped Backgrounds | Monday Card Madness #31

I had fun using stamps for today’s Monday Card Madness. In fact I enjoyed it so much that this week I’ve decided to ditch the sketch and issue a challenge to use stamps as a background for this weeks Monday Card Madness. If you don’t have any stamps or are always on the lookout for new ones, then today’s steal—the KI Memories Icon Stamp Kit would make a lovely addition for your crafty collection.

For this week’s cards, I turned to my stamp stash and had fun custom making the backgrounds of these two cards.

I used a simple flower stamp and stamped randomly on a white piece of cardstock in different colors of ink. It turned out completely happy, don’t you think?

For the next card I took a slightly more elegant approach. I decided to use a darker color scheme, but repeated the same process of randomly stamping the image onto white cardstock, using three different colors of ink.

This week I want to give a shout out to Sarah Mattern. I love her card and the purple and green color combo.

After creating your cards, post them to our Facebook fan page or personal blog then leave a link with your creation here on the blog in order to be eligible for our monthly drawing for a little scrappy goodness. You have until May 6th at 11:59 pm MST to have your creations for April posted in order to be eligible for our monthly drawing.

Be sure to check in tomorrow at 9am for another fantastic How To’sday, this time brought to you by Melissa Dehne.

Have a wonderful Monday!
