Let's add a couple more kits to the Christmas in July special, shall we?

First up is the family calendar kit.  Each year (except this one and I'm getting grief over it, so I'll be sure to do one for next year) I do a family calendar.  I combine both my family and my husband's family.  I list everyone's birthdays and anniversaries.  Then on their appropriate month, I have a photo of them.  I also use a colored pencil to highlight their date on the calendar (I have included a small set of colored pencils in each kit.)  That way, our combined families get to know each other and follow our growth via the calendar.  I make mine, then make copies (or you can take it to Kinkos or somewhere) and send it out to all the family members as a Christmas "happy".  This is usually about the time I start trying to get mine ready so that it will be all completed and copied in time to mail for Christmas.  And it's so much fun when we're all together and I hear someone say "That's a photo for the calendar".  At the end of the year, I tear apart my calendar and insert them into a scrapbook, so now I have a calendar for the year and 12 layouts done.

The kit uses the Making Memories 10x10 Artisan calendar.  I have included all the papers, buttons, chipboard, etc. needed for making one chunky calendar.  Even though the sample shows 2009, there are chipboard numbers to make it 2012.  There are written and photo instuctions included.  The cost has been reduced to $20 with a retail value of over $35.

Next up, I have only 1 remaining kit.  It's the Sweet Memories kit.  This uses the Maya Road cupcake album and is packed with embellishments.  You can use it to house your sweet memories or even as a place to hightlight all your special desserts.  There are 2 alphabets included so you can change the title as necessary to fit your needs.

The cost of this kit is $20 with a retail value of over $36.

If you haven't purchased kits from us before, you should know that we love our chunky albums and bling.  By the time you get it all assembled with photos and the included embellisments, they are really chunky - just the way we like them.

So now you have more options.  You can order any 2 or more of all the kits mentioned so far - Merry '09, Christmas Advent boxes (only 1 remaining as of this post), Oct 31st, Gratitude, Calendar and Sweet Memories and receive $5 off your total.  And I'll even ship them to you for free.  Merry Christmas early.

Remember to email me directly at to get these specials.  Also, a quick reminder, these prices are the before tax prices.  For those of you that live in CA, I'm afraid I must charge sales tax.  Sorry

Scrapbook Garden closing

Amy & I were so sad to hear that The Scrapbook Garden in Huntington Beach will be closing at the end of this month.  I ran by today to see how Melissa and Toffee were holding up and they were packed with people taking advantage of her sale prices and saying goodbye.  If you get a chance be sure to run by and tell her how much you enjoyed shopping there.  And I happen to know there are still spots in the last 2 Friday night crops.

Studio Ali stamps - UPDATED


I absolutely love any of Ali Edwards' stamp sets that she designs.  I still have a couple of them listed in our store.

SOLD OUT.  There is the "Today You" set that I'm selling for $12 and $1.95 shipping.  There is only 1 remaining of this set.

SOLD OUT - Next up we have the March 2011 Studio Ali set - Cake and Candles.  This one is listed at $15 plus $1.95 shipping.  There are 2 of these.

ONLY ONE REMAINING.  Next up, Life with You.  This is marked at $15 plus $1.75 shipping.  There are 2 of these.

SOLD OUT.  No Day Like Today is selling for $15 plus $1.75 shipping.  There is only 1 of these remaining.

BOTH JUNE AND JULY SETS ARE NOW SOLD OUT.  And then there are 2 sets that I haven't even listed in the store yet.  There is only 1 of each remaining.  They are $15 each and shipping is $1.75.  To order either of these sets, you must email me by clicking here.  I will then create a paypal invoice for you.  The sets will be sold to the first person I get the email from.

If you want to order either (or both) of the last 2 sets listed in this post, remember that you must email me. 

If you are ordering either of these last 2 and placing an order on the website, let me know that in your email and I'll adjust the shipping on the order you emailed me.  But I suggest that if you want any from the website you go ahead and order those on the site since the quantity is limited.

Christmas in July pricing


In order to prepare and make room for new product that will soon be coming out, I've reduced the prices on some of our items in our store front.

In addition, I will be running specials on our kits as well.  Let's start it all off with our Christmas kits, shall we.  At the time of this post, we have 4 of the Merry '09 and 3 of the Christmas Advent Project kits.

Merry '09 is one of my favorites.  We used the Making Memories red felt binder for this project and the entire Christmas Magic collection by Fancy Pants.  It is currently on sale for $25.  The value of all the items in this kit is $52 retail.  All the paper has been cut and is arranged in order for ease of assembly.  There are photo as well as written instructions included.

Only 1 Remaining.  The Christmas Advent Drawers project uses the Karen Foster Designs 25 small drawer piece.  You also get a full pad of 6x6 Basic Grey Wassill paper along with other goodies.  You can use this for Christmas and then do as I have seen others do and decorate the backside of the drawers for either another holiday or everyday display (using your own stash).  Our selling price is $20.  The retail value of all the products in this kits is $35.

If you purchase both these 2 kits, I will ship them for free and give you an additional $5 off your total.  So you would be getting $87 worth of product for $40 and get it shipped to you for free.  In order to get this pricing, please email me at  Then I will send you a paypal invoice.  Once I receive payment, I will ship everything out right away.
