We've been sailing with The Mouse

Just returned from a week long trip aboard Disney's Wonder cruise ship. It was a fantastic time. I'm sorting through the nearly 800 pictures we took. Be back soon.

Recent Publications

I know I've been lax about updating recently. My professional work has been new and exciting, and the fam has been spending alot of time together enjoying the summer. The downside has been not having as much time to focus on my scrapbooking. I promise this is a temporary interruption. What I can tell you is that I've had some recent publications that reaffirm my dreams of success with scrapbooking. Last week one of my layouts was published on the Bo Bunny blog. Yesterday, I received a request from scrapbooking.com to publish my college memories mini book and 2 other graduation-themed layouts. They'll be online in August. The last big thing to report is I'll have my first Crafting Jewish Style Sketch Inspiration post on their blog this Sunday.

More frequent posts on the way next month. Thanks so much for checking in.

Have I been shopping?

Of course! I am always looking for great independently owned scrapbooking and craft stores. It's nice to order from the big guys like 2 Peas, Scrapbook.com or A Cherry On Top (my faves) but the LSS have alot of benefits. Recently I found Your Scrapboook Stash. In addition to have nearly all the latest and greatest products, they have a great blog with fun challenges and a very talented design team. I mention the design team because they are currently have a call going on, and I would love to be selected!

Here are a few shots of the great products I ordered from YSS.

A couple different styles of journaling cards from Elle's Studio and Maya Road. YSS also carries a company called Shabby Chic Cards, which I'd never heard of before. The MME anniversary frame-ups were one of my surprise freebies!

All these stickers were on clearance - at least 50% off. Journaling circle labels from Making Memories in 2 different styles and one of the American Crafts 8 page books. This one has a baby boy theme, but only half the labels are baby-specific. 2 sets of glittered sticker boarders from Crate Paper. These are 2 older lines, but for a buck each who cares! The GCD Homespun fabric tags were another freebie. I did order some patterned paper, but it was vintage stuff. Pink Paislee Fetching/Captivating and Basic Grey Nook and Pantry. Those of you who've been following my blog since last fall may remember my love-hate relationship with that line. I've finally decided I like it especially for mini books!

I do have some new patterned paper lines to share. The left below is Collage Press Joyride. Been wanting to check out their papers. Also got 1 sheet of the journaling cards. On the right a few sheets of Prima's spring line, Pastiche. As pretty in person as it looks on the screen!

Here are papers from 2 Little Yellow Bicycle lines - Gen Z on the left, and Snuggle Bug on the upper right. The lower papers are the new Bee Happy line from AdornIt. Cute and affordable.

Have a great weekend. Thanks for reading.
