First guest designer of 2010- Robyn Weatherspoon!

Hello ScrapbookSteals friends!  I am SO excited today to be bringing to you our first of many guest designers to be featured in 2010!  When I thought about what I wanted to bring to our blogging community as far as guests go, I instantly thought of Robyn Weatherspoon. Robyn August09 1

Robyn is a mother of 2; Brittany who is 20, and Michael, 8. She’s a 5th grade teacher by day which she loves, and a scrapper by night! She’s been told that she has a way with people, because she is very friendly and a bit goofy! (I have to say that this is true!  Robyn is one of the funnest people you could ever wish to be around!)  Her favorite color is purple and she loves to drink Diet Cherry Limeade’s from Sonic! Mmmmmm good! (LOL!) She is very close with her family and loves to laugh and cook. Since her son has Autism, she does everything she can to support Autism Awareness. She lives in St. Louis, Missouri with her children.

When I asked Robyn to be our first guest designer for this year, I KNEW she would work magic with Today’s Steal: The Cosmo Cricket Papercrafting Kit.  I mean honestly, everything the girl touches is absolute perfection!  If I could have even a fraction of an ounce of the creative drive that girl possesses I’d be a happy scrapper!  I love how Robyn took this kit and made the chipboard house album into a mini album about her son.

I love how each page incorporates a little bit about where he is in life right now.   I love how she added the die cut elements to each page, to finish off things with just the right amount of pizazz!  What a keepsake this is going to be for Michael when he is older!

Lucky for us, not only did Robyn create this amazing album, but how about this darling card.  Isn’t it the sweetest creation ever!  I mean who wouldn’t want a cheery card like this one!

Pebbles ‘Chips’ Project

Hey everyone!  It’s Kristy again!  Today I am so excited to share with you a QUICK project that I did using the Pebbles “Chips”.  As soon as I saw these I honestly squealed because of the sparkle, the shapes, the colors and honestly the packaging too!  It just doesn’t get any cuter than this!  I love how so little is needed to complete a scrapbook page when using these embelishments because they do all of the work for you.  All I needed for this layout was a few photos, a tiny strip of patterned paper, a splash of ribbon, some letter stickers for my title and the the Pebbles Chips….those glorious chips!  I love how they complete the layout with such style!  (Not to mention without the worry of adding a single calorie to my thighs!)

Projects and inspiration for Today’s Steal by Imaginisce!

Journey_2010 CardA Hello ScrapbookSteals customers! I love communicating with you all each day via emails to ScrapbookSteals or on our Facebook fan page, here! I was so excited about today’s steal coming up that I thought I’d make a layout and some cards and share them with you out of this great kit by Imaginisce! It’s a great boy kit (as you can see).  As soon as I saw the travel theme, I thought of creating a layout to document the beginning of the new year and the “travels” that my boy will be encountering this year.  This collection gave me more than enough options to choose from. And the cards can be used for a little boy’s birthday – the options are endless! Check back here every week for some new inspiration from the crew here at ScrapbookSteals.com, or some of your favorite bloggers! (hint, hint!) CardB CardC

Projects with the Crop-A-Dile!

Check out some of these darling projects done with the Crop-A-Dile!

I love the idea of using it to make tags on reusable containers! I’m guilty of washing and saving lots of clear plastic containers that can be reused – now I have just the inspiration I need! If you have projects you’ve done, email them to us at projects(at)scrapbooksteals.com!

Fan layouts!

Kickin it old school Kickin it old school title

So here’s part 1 of ‘show us your projects’! Erin DuBrock sent these great layouts in. She made them with the transparency die cuts package from Fancy Pants Designs! She said the layouts are ‘scraplifted’ with her own spin on the design. She used a clear file with a tab as part of the title.

Thanks for sharing, Erin!

Remember all, email us your projects you’ve made with things you’ve purchased from ScrapbookSteals.
