Thank you to my peep, GLORIE, for sharing these photos!

Crate Paper “Boyz Rule”



Crate Paper “Flea Market”



Crate Paper “Oh Darling”



Craft Smith “Boardwalk Sherbet”




Craft Smith “Pattern Medley”




Craft Smith “Nautical”




Craft Smith “Little One”



All but “Nautical” have 48 sheets so that’s a mere 14 cents per sheet. And note that these are the full 12×12 pads, NOT the 8.5 x 11 “Hot Buy” pads you may have already seen at Michaels.

Thanks again for the photos, GLORIE! You rawk.

PS: Do you like to use flair on your scrapbooking pages, Project Life, etc.? Yeah, me too! Well, go check out Glorie’s site. She makes and sells scrapbook flair of many kinds and will even do custom orders! She doesn’t know I’m telling you, hee hee. But I wanted to send some traffic her way in thanks for always sharing fun photos from her shopping excursions :)

Photos! Maggies Holmes Paper Pad @ Michaels

Send to Kindle

As I posted HERE, Michaels craft stores now has the name-brand Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper 12×12 tablet. I was sure that my Mike’s wouldn’t have it because they rarely have the cool stuff I hear people talking about. But they proved me wrong!

Honestly, even if I found it I wasn’t sure I was going to buy it. I’d never seen the Maggie Holmes line in person, had only seen it online. And although I liked/loved the designs, the shade of pink used in the collection was throwing me off. It looked like a very ‘cool’ shade of pink with a touch of flourescent so . . . um . . . yeah. Wasn’t sure it was going to be my thing.

And then I saw it in person.

INSTA-LOVE <3

Yes, the pink is in fact a 'cool' pink. But that's okay. It actually looks great with the other colors and adds a fresh touch.

Here are some photos I took. Sorry, the lighting is off and I'm not sure how well you're seeing the true colors. I took them with my iPhone first thing this morning near a window. Who knew that would produce such weird results?

Anyway . . . here's a glance at all the papers:

IMG_2225

IMG_2227

IMG_2226

It’s probably hard to tell from the photos, but there is VELLUM! For the following patterns:

Pink doily
Turquoise bokeh
Navy polka dots
Multi-color flowers
Handwriting
Cloudy sky

I think I found a typo on the cover. At the very bottom in tiny-tiny type, it says “6 in x 6 in”. How funny! Should that make my SCRAPBOOK TYPOS and ERRORS list even though it’s on the packaging not the product?

There are 2 each of 24 designs, either 2 papers or a paper/vellum for each pattern. The papers are a cardstock weight . . . very nice! Even the vellum is very thick. The papers are single-sided and use both white and cream for backgrounds. When I bought this on Monday 07-08, it rang up on sale . . . $11.99 instead of $19.99, no coupon necessary.

Oh, also in the first photo, you can see I got some other things at Mike’s. They had the Iris 12×12 storage cases on sale for $3 each which is an amazing price. They’re usually about $8. I got 2 but wish I would’ve gotten more. I got clear ones but they also came in pink and light green. I’m slowly switching the storage on my scrapbook room shelves from open bins to these Iris cases. It gets very dusty here and I like how the cases protect my goods :) I also love that they’re clear so you can see what project or kit is inside, even though I usually label them anyway {anal much?}

I also got the little bottle of acrylic paint for 22 cents on Clearance. It’s my favorite color these days, sort of a deep robin’s egg blue. Pretty!

So I hope you enjoyed the Maggie Holmes paper photos. Even though they aren’t the greatest quality, I’m hoping they’ll give you a good enough idea as to what this paper pad looks like . . . and whether you can save yourself a trip to Michaels – or whether you need to run someone over to get there faster!

What’s it gonna’ be, sista?

Michaels has Crate Paper/Maggie Holmes Paper Pad

Send to Kindle

Here’s an image provided by an awesome Pea, ALISON:

Usually it seems that brand name paper pads that show up at Mike’s are rebranded as “Recollections.” But not this time! It actually has the brand name shown. There is also VELLUM included in this paper pad.

I haven’t seen it myself but I believe it’s the same as (or similar to) THIS paper pad on the Crate Paper site, where I can’t find the vellum that’s supposed to be in this pad. {HERE is the entire Maggie Holmes line}.

Sightings have been at different spots around the store: bottom shelf with the paper pads, end cap with some Thickers, in a paper display near the flowers, etc. So if you REALLY want this, make sure you look high and low for it!

Need inspiration to use up this line? CHECK IT OUT. Now grab your coupon and get over there!

Scrapbook Products: Errors and Typos

Send to Kindle

As you may know, I have a thing about typos in scrapbook magazines and in published layouts. Well, how about typos in scrapbooking products??

In this Two Peas THREAD, a Pea points out that there’s an error in this BASIC GREY “Shift” paper from the “Lucille” line:

She was referring to the phrase “Cut on the Bais” which should say “bias.” But as the thread went along, astute Peas began finding more and more problems with this single sheet of Basic Grey scrapbook paper. It would be sad if it weren’t so freakin’ funny. Jeez.

- “cut along the the dotted line” with “the” twice
- “fulness” with one L
- “throed” instead of thread

Did I miss any? I’m on a laptop so it’s hard to read the fine print.

All of this reminded me of other typos in scrapbook products, like these from TERESA COLLINS “Butterfly” paper from the “Tell Your Story” collection:

- “because of you have lived” (top right)
- “it is never to late” (middle left)
- bad punctuation throughout

And THEN there was this one by MY MIND’S EYE, from the Indie Chic line:

ETA 11/08/12: Found some more!

From the WRMK “Friends Furever” line, paper called “Furry Friends” … see if you can find it :)

“A house is not a home without dog.” Hee.

“Glitter Lucky Lime” paper from the “Heat Wave” collection by AMERICAN CRAFTS

Do you wear “sandles” to the beach?

This one is more challenging … from “Arizona” paper by the STAMPING STATION:

“Sendona” in the purple section … should be Sedona. SUPPOSEBLY there are other typos in that one but I don’t know Arizona well enough to catch any of them. If you see any others, please let me know in Comments.

It’s mostly been papers so far but here is a flaw in the “Sports” design cartridge for Slice by MAKING MEMORIES:

That one made me literally LOL . . . FOUR!!

And here is a stamp set with a minor apostrophe issue – that would probably only bug the truly picky. From the “Nauti-Cool” set by WILSON DESIGNS STAMPS:

“Fathers Day” is missing one.

Here are 3 more in a stamp set by the same company! From “Gnomebody Like You”:

Maybe they sell a little apostrophe stamp separately and you’re just supposed to insert “you’re” own where appropriate?

Here’s some more paper . . . CRATE PAPER “June” from the “Portrait” collection:

It’s “Janurary” now, is it?

According to a Pea, the online version of this American Crafts “Soho Garden” chipboard is correct:

But the one she bought at an LSS says “I am Home When I am”. Wow, so existential! {Thanks Tina!}

How about this one from STUDIO CALICO‘s “Classic 3 Alpha Sheet”?

I guess it’s fine as long as you don’t need to spell “December Daily” or “Dead as a Doornail” or “Delightfully Delicious” ;)
{Thanks to Ann from CALI CRAFTS for that one!}

Here’s another one . . . from the DCWV “Guy Stack”.

It says “COUCH” instead of “COACH”. Like Patti said, “I think this one by DCWV might be a Freudian slip by some disgruntled wife.” Ha!

ETA 11/09/12: I’m adding some more. Thanks for telling me about them everyone! I still can’t believe there are so many . . .

MY MIND’S EYE “Christmas” die cuts from the “Lost and Found” line:

Ah, the lovely month of . . . Decemeber??

From the “Note to Self” line from ECHO PARK, the “Quotes” paper has a frequent pet peeve of grammar girls . . .

SHIMELLE did such a good job of explaining it, I’m just going to quote her:

It’s versus its drives me absolutely batty, so this paper sets my teeth on edge.

(If ‘it’s’ has an apostrophe, it is ALWAYS ‘it is’. The possessive of its is just like his and hers, which is not hi’s and her’s. It’s such a common error that I know I should just get over it, but instead, it glares more and more at me! I also have nightmares about making the mistake myself just because it bothers me so much, and especially with autocorrect it is easy to make.)

ETA 06-22-13: As Andrea in Comments pointed out, “There’s another typo on that Echo Park ‘Note to Self’ paper – ‘Your Guess Is As Good Mine’ is missing another ‘as.’ Good pull, Andrea!

I have to admit I probably would’ve missed this one from OCTOBER AFTERNOON‘s “Rocket Age” word stickers:

Near the bottom is a strip that says “Into the Great Unkown” . . . Thanks for the tip, zonefan!

ETA 06-22-13: Shelly49 at Two Peas pointed this out … “In the strip at the very bottom that says ‘Thats one small step…’ Should be That’s.” Thanks!

And in Comments, Ellen says, “I think October Afternoon’s ‘Rocket Age’ has another error. I believe ‘Wiz Kid’ is a wizard child. ‘Whiz Kid’ is an intelligent or smart child.”

Here’s some interesting paper from CP’s “Fourteen” line:

Aw, CRATE PAPER, another one? I mean, TWO? The months of the year really seem to trip up these manus, don’t they? {Thanks Elise!}

ETA 12-15-12: Just found another one in an e-mail I got for a sale ;)

In the Giant Rhinestone Kit from “Cashmere Dame” by GLITZ DESIGN

Shouldn’t it be HUBBA HUBBA? {I’m pronouncing this is “hugh-buh hugh-buh”}. Such a bummer because I would’ve bought those otherwise. I love all their stuff … it’s so purdy. Oh, and there were typos in the e-mail, too ;)

ETA 02-09-13: Had to do a whole ‘nother post about THIS ONE because it hit so close to home :(

ETA 03-24-13: Oh noes! My fave company let another one through … from Simple Stories new line “24/7″:

Thanks threecs! Ironically, “picture” is spelled correctly here … and then not.

ETA 05-03-13: MAMBI made a big OOPS on their pocket page cards – but they tried to make it right. See all the deets HERE.

ETA 05-17-13: PennyPaws at TwoPeas posted this recently:

Pebbles’ Lakeside Collection “Summer Camp”, and the B side has different categories like “Food”, “Crafts”, First Aid”, etc… It has a box with “Troup #” written in it… Thinking they meant “troop”.

Thanks for taking a photo of that, PennyPaws! I couldn’t find an image online anywhere, even Pebbles own website ;)

ETA 05-21-13: According to a Pea in THIS THREAD, there are even more mistakes being found in the MAMBI cards but I don’t have specifics or pictures, sorry :(

ETA 06-22-13: Now it’s Carta Bella’s turn for a typo. This one is on their “Well Played” border strips paper:

In the 4th row from the top and on the very bottom strip is the same quote from Charles M. “Shultz” … whose last name was in fact spelled “Shulz.”

Little personal note on this one: My mom actually met Mr. Shulz back in the 1970s when he came through her workplace; she worked for a man who would later become President of the US :) She grabbed a piece of scrap paper from the copier and Mr. Shulz drew a Snoopy for her little son, my brother (I was still a twinkle in my parents’ eyes at that point). Many years later after he passed away, my mom donated that drawing to the CHARLES M. SHULZ Museum and Research Center. Cool, huh?

ETA 06-22-13: Now I’m going to catch up on other typos that have been sent to me but haven’t been added to this post yet. You guys have been SO great about sending me the typos and errors you find in scrapbooking products. Please keep them coming! I love to include links to your blogs, Twitter, or whatever else you like – so include those too, please. Okay, here we go …

From an American Crafts “Remarks” pack (I’m not sure which line?), you can go over the “mountians.” How do you pronounce that? Moun-chins?

And from a WRMK “Cristmas” paper … (ETA 04-01-14: My own ‘WMRK’ typo fixed!)

Thanks for those two, KATE!

Glitz Design is represented again, with a stamp set from their “Yours Truly” line … or should I say “Your’s Truly”?

Thanks Shane_Marie from Two Peas! I love your post: “Unless Glitz were wanting to be mind-bendingly philosophical: can a possession be possessive? Or possessiveness possess? Or…

Nah, it’s just a typo ;) ”

This one isn’t a typo or error per se but maybe unintended scrap-p*rn from Basic Grey? It’s an image in their True Love Collection “Kissing Tree” paper. Usually my mind is firmly in the gutter, but I would never have noticed this one!

So I’m glad that Heather is an observant one. Check out her hilarious BLOG ENTRY for the full story.

Pink Paislee “Snow Day” Bitty Blocks alphas – do you see what’s missing?

Let’s just say it’s a good thing there are plenty of d’s that you can turn upside-down. Sheesh. Thanks for that one, AndreaK from Two Peas!

Crate Paper is back. Below in Comments, Alyssa says there’s a typo in their Portrait line “Accent Cuts” sheet with “Administration” misspelled.

This is the largest image I can find and on my laptop screen, I can’t see the error but hope you can!

Patrice in Comments pointed out this one by Bo Bunny. On their “We The People” paper, it says United STATE of America.

I guess one state WOULD be really united with itself, huh?

I think this is Project Life’s first entry into the typo game. It’s from the “Midnight” edition:

Thanks Melissa for finding the image on Instagram! If anyone knows whose pic that is, please let me know … I’d love to credit them.

Pebbles Inc. “Family Ties” line has a typo in their Journaling and Phrase Cards:

On the top right, it should say WE’RE not WERE. Thanks Just Me the Pea! You also mentioned another error in the MAMBI cards but I don’t have a pic of it:

“In the MAMBI PL card set, think it is called ‘A Kid’s Life’. I remember one of the typos was something like ‘things I like play with’. ACK I wish I had it in front of me. But I know it was a typo because two of the cards said that and two other cards said “things I like TO play with” so I knew the other 2 cards were wrong.”

I almost hate to mention that Crate Paper has yet ANOTHER typo. It’s from an older line “Farmhouse” and the paper is called “Apple Pie”.

JESS AMAZING did such a good job explaining and providing an image, I’ll let her do the talking (copied from her post on Two Peas):

“I have another one for you! It’s older, but Crate Paper’s ‘Apple Pie’ paper had a numbered ledger design featuring the number 23 twice. I was so annoyed when I found this, after having taken the time to cut & adhere perfectly so as to use it for an actual list. Fortunately, it was a list of 25 so I just layered a sticker over the last few numbers. Annoying”

From the Dear Lizzy “Little Trinket” paper from the “Lucky Charm” line, we have repeated use of the word “vingtage”. Oy.

Thanks for the tip, leisa77!

Here’s another one from my fave company, Simple Stories. It’s on one of the Title Strip Elements papers in the “Summer Fresh” line. Here’s the paper – but you can’t see the error here – it’s covered:

If you go to the Simple Stories blog HERE, you can scroll down and see the error. (I can’t copy the image here because it includes ALL of those papers and is rather large).

“The typed quote strip reads, ‘Let us lay in the sun and count every beautiful thing we see.’ The verb they wanted was ‘lie,’ not ‘lay.’ Probably not a typo so much as a common grammar flub.”

Thanks tsabhira from Two Peas!

In Comments, Jill pointed out some problems with the 7 Gypsies “Postale” line. On the “Priority” paper, the oh-so-important word PRIORITY is spelled PRIORTY. Oopsie!

This one isn’t a typo on the product itself but the packaging. It’s on the enamel dots from the MME “Find Your Wings and Fly” collection.

I mean the acrylic stamps. I mean the enamel dots. Jeesh, I’m so confused! {Thanks Stephanie!}

KBPea pointed out this one, from a WRMK tag:

Which is kinda’ freaky-deaky because in a post I wrote earlier today (before I saw this tag posted) that will post Monday AM, I wrote about how I just learned that I’ve been spelling y’all wrong for years and years. Am I the only one (well, other than WRMK) who’s been spelling it wrong? LOL

ETA 09/08/13: Time to add a few more I’ve been told about . . .

From a paper in the Studio Calico “Snippets” line. Notice anything missing?

Rebecca from the HOW I BURB blog points out, “They must not like Halloween” :)

ETA 01-25-14: As noted by Joyatee, Sherrie and Melissa Kaye in Comments, they also spelled “Janurary” incorrectly. Two mistakes in one paper.

From the Project Life “Honey” edition, again – something is missing here. A couple of somethings, in fact.

SB typo PL Honey card

Thanks to Audrey, who tipped me off in Comments below!

I actually have this “Mother’s Day” album kit from WRMK but my friend Abby is the one who pointed out the error, and sent me this great pic with the cool arrow :)

SB typo WRMK md album

C’mon, WRMK. “Your” SURE you proofread that? Bwahahahaha!

How about this one {maybe kinda’ two} from Studio Calico’s “Storytime – Baby Boy” line?

Here’s the pic provided by the vendor. Some think that the way “To the Moon & Back” is written looks more like “The To Moon & Back” and I tend to agree. I know it’s ‘art’ but it’s hard to read.

Here’s the typo though in the actual item sent out.

CUTE
BABY
GIRL???

What the hay? Shouldn’t the entirely blue sheet have been an indicator that it should say BOY??? {Thanks TAMMI!}

ETA 10-14-13: Fellow Pea Valerie mentioned this one . . . “It’s” a problem with the “Good Tidings” Frame Tags by Chic Tags.

Seems like “it’s” often those apostrophes that are throwing people off. It is = it’s.

ETA 01-21-14: Thank you to LINDA in Comments for pointing out this one from PINK PAISLEE:

The alphabet on the left has no “W” stickers! Guess you’d better not plan on doing a layout about Winter Wonderland :)

ETA 01-25-14: Mentioned on Two Peas was an error in one of the 3×4 cards in the new Project Life CORAL set, which I happened to have so I took a photo:

securedownload

Before my coffee, it does feel like a morning “rountine” sometimes :P Gennifer posted: “My friend is the one who designed that kit. IIRC, she caught the error and corrected it before they were printed, but somehow the original file was mistakenly sent instead of the corrected one.” How frustrating that must be.

I’ll call this one a wobbler. The Peas were debating whether there’s a typo or misspelling in this sticker sheet from “Family Traditions” by Webster’s Pages:

Do you think “cooky” is an okay alternate spelling of “kooky” or is that misspelled?

Thanks to patowle at Two Peas for pointing this one out – from My Minds Eye “The Sweetest Thing” Tiny Word Stickers:

I wonder if MME has caught the “engergetic” error yet; it’s still posted on their website with the misspelling.

ETA 06-03-14: A popular online scrapbook store sent out an e-mail today offering this sticker sheet for only 1 cent – whoo hoo!

Wait, what? Paying full price for this would be like a ‘firecraker’ blowing up in your face, eh? {Guess we figured out why it’s such a great deal, ha!}

Thank you to sweet scrapper TinkGumby (Maria) for sharing this one (: (: (:

*************

What do you think about all of these errors in scrapbooking products? Annoying? Unconscionable? Or “oh well”?

Personally, they drive me crazy. Yes, transcriptionist and English major here so I notice things that maybe others wouldn’t. But even if typos didn’t generally bug me, I’m paying for a product and expect it to be proofread, for gosh sakes.

Is it due to economic hardships for the companies, fewer employees, can’t afford the time to proofread? What? I find it ironic – if that is even the case – that there is a whole world of scrapbookers out here who would LOVE to proof new products and would even do it for FREE. C’mon, scrapbook companies, I’m here for ya’!!

So tell me your thoughts on the matter even IF* you’re just “meh” about it all. And let me know of other scrapbook product typos you’ve come across. I’ll post them here :)

*Typo fixed! Was there only one in this whole post!?! LOL
ETA 01-04-14: Another typo fixed :P

Scrapbook Shopping: New Scrapbook Supplies at Target!

Send to Kindle

Psst! Yeah, YOU. C’mere.

Word on the street is that TARGET has some cool new scrapbook supplies!

Yeah, I’m sure it’s Target.

Yeah, the same store that has been phasing out scrappy stuff over the last few years.

Yeah, the same Target that hasn’t gotten anything new and trendy since 2006 except for the K&Co. SMASH BOOK STUFF.

I understand why you’re skeptical. I am too. But I’m going to check it out for myself soon and see if it’s fuh-real or just a cruel joke.

SUPPOSUBLY . . . Target now has NEW:

- THICKERS (!!! my favorite addiction)

- WRMK 8×8 and 12×12 albums in 5 colors, a variety of page protectors, and small paper pads

- AMERICAN CRAFTS ribbon

- 6×6 paper pads by CRATE PAPER and American Crafts DEAR LIZZY “Neapolitan”

As of this writing, sightings have been made in Texas and Tennessee. {Oh snap! I’m in California}.

Huggy Bear also told me that Target is getting HERO ARTS stamps. I’m not allowed to buy stamps anymore but, hey, good news for those of you who can! It’s called DECORATE IT!

None of this stuff is on the Target WEBSITE so I’ll believe it when I see it . . . in person. If you can verify this rumor, please submit a report below IMMEDIATELY! Your fellow scrappers are depending on you.

ETA 10/24/12: According to SCRAPBOOK UPDATE:

The [DECORATE IT!] products are gradually being stocked in Target stores across the country all this week, so keep your eye out for them in a store near you! (If you are an online shopper, the new line will be available at Target.com in a few weeks.)

So . . . YAY!! Even if my lame Target doesn’t carry the line, I’ll be able to get it online.

Memory Works Order is in Da’ House!!

Send to Kindle

Yippy skip! My latest MEMORY WORKS order arrived last weekend. They always send things in these 13×13 boxes with lots of padding so nothing gets crushed or bent. That’s one thing I really like. This is a mix of items for myself, and things I’m going to sell.

IMG_0911

Here’s a bunch of Cosmo Cricket cardstock stickers, rub-ons, and the free Cosmo Cricket tie I got from Memory Works as a promotional item.

IMG_0912

Finally! I got some BO BUNNY “ABBY ROAD.” Ever since I saw THIS layout by Chrispea, I’ve been wanting some. I’m totally going to scraplift that.

IMG_0914

—–

IMG_0925

And then there’s BO BUNNY “CALYPSO” for all those fun summer layouts. We have a pool, we go to the lake and the ocean all summer, and we barbeque a lot. This looks like the perfect line for me, don’t you think?

IMG_0915

This is the back side and closer look at two of the papers. These especially rock, in my opinion.

IMG_0916

This is the cover sheet thingee from the CRATE PAPER “BLUE HILL” theme set {oops, no linkee, it’s already sold out! you gotta’ move quick around here, LOL}. I just luuuurve this color combination. Have you ever seen Crate Paper in person? It is THE best quality patterned paper. It’s cardstock thick and has a slight texture to it. It feels so luxurious…ROWR…

IMG_0917

You get two of each paper and I alternated both sides so you can see them both. For instance, from the left, there are two sheets of that paper with the teal/peach pattern on one side and the solid teal on the other.

IMG_0918

Here is the rest of the stuff I got in this special “retreat” pack, i.e. leftover class kits or things sold at the Memory Works retreat in June 2009. This was a great deal…all this Crate Paper stuff in one pack for $17.50.

IMG_0919

This was also a special from the MW retreat…a birthday card set from the BASIC GREY “CUPCAKE” line. I’m going to offer them as make-n-takes at my crop. {No linkee here either, already sold out. Sheesh, glad I ordered when I did!}

IMG_0920

And now my whining about not having any COSMO CRICKET “EARLY BIRD” will cease because it now holds it’s rightful place in my stash. Sweeeeeet!

This the front side of the papers in the theme set….

IMG_0921

…and this is the back side of those same papers.

IMG_0923

This is the Early Bird ELEMENTS and STICKERS. I got 2 of everything ~ 1 for me, 1 to sell. Again, loving the color combo, and those cherries are so stinkin’ cute. I’ve seen lotsa inspiration on various blogs for how to use this line and I can’t wait to get started.

IMG_0924

It’s like Christmas in July, I tell ya’. What’s funny is I get the same amount of joy from receiving the items I’m going to keep and those I’m going to sell to customers. I don’t mind selling products that I have in stock and may really love … but I get to touch them first ;-)
