Today's Special of the Day!

Eventide Collection
Eventide Collection

Save 30% off this Collection today only!

Each week, we will be spotlighting one designer and one of their favorite products. This product will be on sale for one day only at 30% off!

This week's designer spotlight is on Amanda Fraijo-Tobin. In a brief interview, she shared these comments with us...

"I love fall and Halloween! I like this kit because it's great for Halloween but also neutral enough to use throughout the fall season in general. The colors are a little bit different than you would find in a traditional fall kit too, which makes it a fun twist from the standard browns and oranges. This would be a great kit for scrapbooking Halloween parties for older kids and adults as well since it's less juvenile."

1. Do you have any pets?

I have two chihuahuas. A boy named Mojito (black and tan) and a girl named Pixie (we lovingly refer to her as a strawberry blonde).

2. What is the first thing you do when you get up in the morning?

Reach for my glasses.

A Designer's Life: Elisha Barnett - Life with Dogs

I grew up having dogs. Lots of dogs, even though we usually only had one at a time. I can recall nine of them clearly: Dixie, Lady, Irish, Snoopy, Buffy, Tippy, Max, 'Lil Bit, and Tisha, though there might have been more. Some dogs we had for just a short time, and some we had for years. But there was never one that spent its entire natural life with us, from puppyhood to a natural end. We either had to give them away when we moved or they met a tragic end. I'll spare you the details, but I've had lot of heartache when it comes to parting with my dogs.

Positive Attitude Month

Being positive is a choice. It means choosing to look for the good in any given situation, no matter how difficult that may be. Having a positive attitude helps us achieve our goals faster, cope easier with daily life, keeps us healthier, and, in general, makes us feel happier and more content with our lives.

New Scrap Girls Designer: Meet Kimberly

As many of you are aware, we put out a call for new designers this summer and have selected a whole handful of talented new gals to round out our Scrap Girls team. We will be introducing each of them to you individually in our newsletters this fall. We hope that you will enjoy their designs and find some great new supplies to add to your stash and new ideas to keep you inspired.
