Our Friends: Embellishments By Tina

We are always searching for people out there who are as enthused about scrapbooking and putting together photo albums as we tend to be.  Therefore, when we find someone who fits the bill, we always like to let all of you know about the wonderful site that we happened to come across.

embellishments by tina blog

The site we wanted to showcase today is Embellishments By Tina.  This site is a wealth of information for a number of reasons.  The first is that Tina offers not just great information and products that you can use for your scrapbooking efforts, but she also offers you information and pictures of how to turn vintage items into amazing decorative pieces.

Her site is broken down into two main concentrations, the scrapbooking embellishments and the various vintage projects, which is aptly named “altered art.”  Tina also has an impressive online store, where you can find many of her projects that you can incorporate into your own projects or into your own home décor.

Definitely make sure to check out Embellishments By Tina.  You’ll be glad that you did!

We Love Southern Belle Scrapper!

Today we are proud to introduce our new friend, Southern Belle Scrapper.  This website is a blog dedicated to one scrapper’s true passion for the hobby.  She provides many amazing instructions for home made crafts and embellishments that you can add to any of your own scrapbooks.  Her projects are beautiful and deserve to be seen by as many people as possible!

One project that caught our eye, was the “Pushing Up Daisies” cookie container.  This cute craft is a fun project for the whole family and can really come out looking nice!  The flowers and bees found on the cookie container also help showcase the springtime.

So join us in giving our new friend a warm welcome and make sure to check out all of the wonderful crafts and information that you can find at Southern Belle Scrapper.

P.S. – Check Out the Pink Stamper!

One of my favorite things about working at is that it’s actually part of my job to keep up with what all the fabulous scrapbookers out there are up to. Pretty cool, I know! And the truth is, I really haven’t come across a bad scrapbooking blog in my travels. The beauty of this craft is that every scrapper brings their own unique personality to their albums, and I always discover something new and fantastic I can appreciate and bring to my albums, too.

However, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy and learn more from some bloggers than others, and I’m a terrible liar! Plus, it’s getting quite close to Christmas, and Santa doesn’t like a liar very much at all. So in all honesty, one of my go-to favorite ladies is Robyn from Many of you may already be familiar with The Pink Stamper, but if you aren’t, her blog is a definite must-follow! Robyn includes all the necessary ingredients for a wonderfully complete blog, from lovely layouts to inspirational instructional videos that teach you new tricks, and offer fun and fresh ideas. And most importantly for me, she lives a life worth taking pictures of, and shares her journey.

Even a blog full of the most sparkling, fantastic layouts and ideas I have ever seen loses it’s luster after awhile if the author never tells me her story. Robyn brings it all to the scrapbooking table – from Swine Flu to Marathons to her BFF Vacation. And as long as we’re on the honest path, I have to mention that her glass half-full positive outlook is refreshing. I understand that not every day can be the best day we have ever had, and I’m definitely guilty of being a grump from time to time, but it’s nice to be reminded that the bad will pass, there is much to be thankful for, and when the going gets tough, there are always Caramel Apples and Cricut Videos just a click away!

It’s More Than Whispers And Wishes…It’s A Really Great Scrapbooking Blog!

“we all have a voice inside that encourages us to be greater than we believe ourselves to be. it urges us to nurture, create and wander. that voice speaks in whispers and we repeat its urgings as wishes…” Is there a more beautiful way to be greeted?! Such was my welcome upon finding WhispersAndWishes, a wonderful blog I found on my journey for scrapping inspiration. From beautiful layouts and unique cover ideas, to dashes of humor and personal, welcoming writing, this blog is definitely one to keep an artistic eye on!

While the pictures are what one most immediately notices about most scrapbooking blogs, it is actually the written aspects of the posts I am most fond of on Whispers and Wishes. Don’t get me wrong, the Thank You Cards and Christmas Layout Idea, among many others, are awesome, but it’s the attention to the written word that is missing from so many blogs that makes this one unique. Sure, sometimes we just want to relax and look at the pretty pictures, but to keep coming back to a blog I have to feel a connection to the writer. I’ll keep coming back to WhispersAndWishes, and I hope you all will too! :)

Katie The Scrapbook Lady Keeps It Cool And Creative!

As a scrapbooker, it likely goes without saying that you have a keen eye for the fun and funky – the bright and beautiful – the colorful and cool – the amazing and awe-inspiring. That’s right, we know you’re awesome! So, where are we going with all this awareness and flattery? It’s actually somewhere we already went – we went to visit Katie the Scrapbook Lady at And we definitely liked what we saw!

A writer who isn’t a reader isn’t going to be writing anything very creative for very long, just like a scrapper who isn’t checking out what other scrappers are up to isn’t going to scrap creatively for very long. Sometimes all it takes is seeing one beautiful picture, like any of these gorgeous Earth Day Pictures Katie posted, to inspire a new, fresh album of your own! We like to keep on top of what other scrappers are up to, and we think the ScrapbookLady has a scraptastically funtastic blog we’ll be turning to time and again! Apart from gorgeous photography, there’s super unique layout ideas, wonderful deals, a personal, friendly writing style, tips that apply to all types of scrapbooking, whether you’re a traditional scrapbooker, digital scrapbooker, or you just want to try your hand at one of these super fun Badge Albums and see how terrific tiny can be!

Did I mention the ridiculously Fun Buttons! Those you’ll have to see to really appreciate the amazingness! We’re sure you’ll find Katie the Scrapbook Lady as interesting and fun to follow as we do, so head on over for a cup of creative!
