{Inter} National Scrapbook Day 2015

I have something special of my own to announce on (Inter)National Scrapbook Day – Saturday, May 2, 2015 – so please stay tuned for that! I hope you’re gonna’ love it ❤️
{There will be chances to win prizes . . . is that enough to make you come back? Hee heeee}

Here’s a list of things going on around the interwebs this week and especially Saturday 05-02-15 in honor of I-NSD 2015:

I’m on Becky’s email list and in her email of 04-27-15, she linked to a Youtube video where she tells of all the fun stuff going on at her site on Saturday 5/2. When I tried to share the video here on my blog, I got this message: “This video is unlisted. Be considerate and think twice before sharing.” So apparently I’m not supposed to share the video. Sorry, I’m not a rule breaker. Well, except for on my Junior Prom night but that’s another story*. Heh. Soooo – if you’re on Becky’s mailing list, get the linkee there, Google it up, or perhaps she’s putting it out on Facebook, etc. She did say that THE VIDEO is the ONLY place they’re posting online about WHAT EXACTLY will be happening Saturday. Take my word for it – you want to be there :)

*Oops! Mom? Are you out there? . . . . (crickets) . . . Phew! She doesn’t read my blog normally but I just had to make sure.

Team Lisa Bearnson

This is copied from the Team Lisa Facebook group I’m in (I recently signed on so I can sell her *NEW* “Anthology” scrapbooking products when they come out in late summer 2015!).

Scrapbook Hauls: Freckled Fawn, Your Scrapbook Supply, Beverly’s, Michaels, and Scrapbook Steals

I haven’t done a “scrapbook haul” post for a while so here we go . . . and it’s a doozy!


Back in the fall, they had a big sale and I got all of this for $10 including shipping.


Puffy stickers and washi! The stars are glitter even though you probably can’t tell that from the photo. The labels tape I didn’t like as much in person as I did on the website. Oh well.


This online store is pretty much always having sales and coupon codes so they’re one of the first places I look for a new “must have” line. Sometimes they only have bits and pieces but then other times, I luck out and they have the exact pieces I want. This is Amy Tangerine’s recent line, “Stitched.” I got all this for $24 including shipping.


Here are all the gorgeous papers from the paper pack, including my favorite paper – the map with hearts. You may know that I have deep love for ombre & watercolor and hearts. I hit the jackpot with this line!



Bad news: One corner on all of the 12×12 papers was badly bent.


Good news: I contacted Your Scrapbook Supply and they didn’t have the paper pack in stock anymore and couldn’t order it, so they sent me this as a replacement – the entire paper pad. Granted, the papers are single- not double-sided but I got more of them so it’s all good.


If you decide to order from Your Scrapbook Supply, please tell them I sent you :)


This is the closest thing I have to an LSS within 2 hours of me so I shop there whenever I can. Gotta’ support them, right?!?! I got “Celebrate” Thickers, My Minds Eye “Sleigh Bells” tiny type letter stickers, and some cute Bella Blvd, Pebbles, and Bo Bunny papers – everything for $24. I used a 40% off coupon for the MME alphas, bringing them from $5 down to $3 . . .


. . . and what a great deal. Look how many sheets of letters you get!


Here are the other sides of the papers from above:


I’m going to use that teal paper from Pebbles to make a perpetual birthday calendar.


Here’s my haul from Michaels right before Christmas when they had a huge sale. Yep, I took a photo of my whole cart because I cracked myself up! I don’t EVER buy this many things at once and actually felt guilty even though I got great deals.


I’m in scrapbook space organization mode again and I NEED these things, right? All albums were Buy One, Get One Free. I’ve already put the Project Life chevron albums to good use {holding divided and plain page protectors, as I talked about HERE}. The jar candle, 8.5 x 11 kraft paper, wrapping paper, ombre paper pad, and 12×12 Iris cases were all on sale, too. I wasn’t able to use my coupon because it was all on sale already, LOL. Don’t you hate it when that happens?


Man, they are just plain EVIL with the OCTOBER AFTERNOON kits they keep offering up! {This one is called “Girl Talk Collection Kit” and is still available in the Archives; just click the link above}. All of this for only $15, retailing for twice that. How is an OA addict to resist? Well, don’t ask me! I wouldn’t know. APPARENTLY.


The washi is absolutely beautiful in person and I love the Tin Pins, especially the one that looks like an old rotary phone dial. {For you youngsters: Back in the day before push buttons then touch pads, we had to actually D-I-A-L a phone and it took so stinkin’ long, you just prayed you didn’t have to call anyone with lots of 8s, 9s, or 0s in their phone number}.

Okay, I suppose by now you’re either a). totally disgusted that anyone could spend so much money on scrapbook supplies, b). drowning in drool, or c). feeling kinship because you’ve done a similar amount of shopping this fall and winter. That’s okay, you don’t have to tell me which one. Or two. We’re Scrap Sisters and I understand. Totes.

I have an order from Evalicious and also some Pebbles that Santa left in my stocking but I haven’t taken pics yet so those will have to wait. What have been your favorite purchases lately?

Scrapbook Products: Enamel Dots

One of the hot new items in the scrapbooking world is enamel dots. I love them because they add a little pop of color wherever you need it. They’re less work than a brad – you don’t even have to punch a hole. Just stick ’em down and be on your way :)

They aren’t overly expensive (about $2-5 per pack), come in a huge variety of colors, and usually in 3 sizes per pack.

Here’s my current collection:

Enamel dots by Recollections, My Minds Eye, and Freckled Fawn

Enamel dots by Recollections, My Minds Eye, and Freckled Fawn

The only pack I paid full price for was the awesome teal one from Freckled Fawn. I just had to have those because those shades of teal blue are among my favorite colors.

The Recollections packs and the Halloween/MME I got from Michaels, using a coupon on each pack. ‘Cuz you know that’s how I roll. The rest of the MME ones are from a daily deal site. I think it was around $2/pack that way.

As I bought them, they were kind of getting tucked away all over my scrap room and not being used. So now I’ve gathered them all, put them with my Project Life stuff, and will start gettin’ bizzy with some dots.

I did try to use some of the gray ones on a layout I did this past weekend but they were the wrong shade. So that means I need to buy more, right?

If you need to be enabled, here are some enamel dots on Amazon.

Look how pretty these are!

The Sweetest Thing Lavender Enamel Dots-Reasons Why

Confession time: How many packs of enamel dots do you own? Do you use them a lot or still in the hoarding stage like I am? LOL Would love to hear from you! Just leave a Comment below.

Awww, C’mon Freckled Fawn … You’re Killin’ Me!

Wood veneer Polaroid frames?!?!?

New washi designs???

Adorable puffy stickers that will look super dooper cute in my PL?!?!?

Just when I thought I was being good and my CHA shopping tear was over and done. Then you show me this stuff?!?!? Tell you what: Why don’t I just send you my paycheck every month? Send me all you got, and then whatever $$ is leftover. Deal?

{You can see it all the new stuff for May here: Freckled Fawn May Update}

PS: If you let The Power of Washi overtake you – at Freckled Fawn or anywhere else – make sure to check out a FREE ONLINE CLASS coming up that’s all about washi! I mean, assuming you want to do something more with it than admire all the pretty colors in a glass bowl :)
