Digi Scrappers, be amazed!

Here's a badge to get to the best online scrapping site anywhere. It's only $6.95 for a two page layout and it's printed and shipped to your home. No kidding! Let me know if you'd like to get in on the next Studio J digital scrapbooking class I'm giving and I'll walk you through it; you just bring your flashdrive with some photos and I'll show you how good it all looks with just a few minutes.
In real life, I'm am elementary librarian.  This quickie bulletin board went together in just half an hour.  Scrappers think of bulletin boards as just an oversized layout.  It's kind of like blending my two worlds, huh?
What do librarians (who moonlight as scrapbookers) do with a wonderful book when it gets ruined?  Well, we turn it into something else, of course!

The Invention of Hugo Cabret is a beloved book so when it received water damage, I tore out the pages and decoupaged them onto a yucchy table that was at the curb on garbage day.  Score!

That table's not so yucchy, anymore...

Andrea has won prizes two months in a row for bringing back projects with her own photos mounted.  We love to see our finished products! Go, Andrea!

Who else rocks it?  Julie used our Surf's Up! papers with photos from Seattle she brought.  That girl comes prepared!  We love our Julie!

It's the Patriotic Blog Hop from Kimberly Moss' team ~ Stampers with an Attitude.  We're all consultants for Close to My Heart and are excited to show you some patriotic art using our products and a little attitude.

You've probably arrived here after visiting Vickie O'Dell's site:

Did you recognize the beautiful display tray from our line?  It can stand or be hung.  I like to change it out to whatever the season is asking for.  And our cricut cartridges make it easy to cut out any title I like for quick switching.  And those accordian ribbons are super easy with our Artiste cartridge.  You may have missed it in this fuzzy photo but I also have two of my favorite accessories: the colonial rosette ribbon and the Claire rosettes.  I would use those in everything if I could, even for jewelry, headbands or sweater accents.  Oh, wait - I wasn't supposed to mention that til the next catalog comes out August 1st. (oopsie...)

and the next visit on the bloghop is to Barbi's site:
