New Inspiration

Hi everyone! I'm in the middle of getting this weekend's layout contest ready for the Fall Back in LOVE with Scrapbooking crop, but I had to take a minute to post some cool new stuff. Our Whimzee Girl Carol sent me a YouTube link to some videos from CHA. There are tons of videos available from lot's of our favorite vendors. I can't wait to see what Twila ordered, but I thought you might enjoy checking out this video of the American Craft booth. AC makes the THICKERS alphabets we all love to use. So check this out & be sure to call and reserve your space for this weekend's crop. I know you're all going to love the layout contest. You can win some cool prizes and I know you'll love all the inspiration you'll get from seeing everyone else's layouts. Remember to bring your cameras, so you can snap a few pics & use the ideas you love later!

One more's a cool scrapbooking site with all sorts of ideas and links to other videos from CHA....The Pink Donut

Quick Holiday Thank You Cards

I know I mentioned this idea in my last newsletter, so I thought I'd show you how the Holiday Thank You cards turned out. When I first saw Luxe's new Color Me Festive Paper, I just knew my daughter, Delaney, would love it. I thought it would be perfect for her to use to make Thank You cards. Our cards were pretty simple, but you could use this same idea with a few more sophisticated supplies to create your own beautiful holiday cards.

Delaney loves to color, so this paper is perfect for her! She chose to use her colored pencils to color a few of the cute sketched designs. Then I cut them out for her and she used the Tombo adhesive to put them on the front of her cards.

For the cards, I pulled some, Hot Off the Press cards out of my stash and let Delaney choose which design to use for each recipient. I added a little ribbon to each card and Delaney used the inside to write her Christmas Thank You's. Delaney loved being able to make her own cards, so this project was perfect. It would be a great one to do with your kids too!

Just a little note from Whimzee's: Be sure to read your newsletter next week for all the Warehouse Sale and Weekend Crop details! We're planning a lot of fun events for 2009 and we'll be asking for everyone's opinions on all sorts of things. So feel free to comment here on the blog if there is something you're interested in learning about or chatting with us about! Hope you all had a very Happy New Year! We're excited for 2009, see you at the store!
