Scrapbook Sussies (and more)

Lara asked me to be the July guest designer for Scrapbook Sussies!

I was so honored and completely blown away by the request. Sussies is a really, really cool kit. It is LOADED with embellishments and features two different fairly-large-on-their-own paper lines. I couldn't believe all the rub-ons, thickers and goodies in my bag. WOW.

I got to work with the new Crate Orbit collection and Prima's Mommy and Me. Both lines are a lot of fun!

Here's another LO I made with my very STUFFED kit:


Last week my Oodles of Doodles assignment was to incorporate hand stitching into a page. I've been grabbing a needle and thread for practically every page. It adds a bit of "flat texture" that makes me happy.

Scrapbook News:

The Scrap-room announced that they are having a design team search. You can read the info here.

Also, Bombshell Stamps is looking for a handful of new designers. You can read about the call here. I know a lot of you gals are amazing card makers and I encourage you to try out for the team.


My health is still crummy but we've started having hot weather so hopefully the plants will all die soon. Isn't that a terrible attitude? When you have a bone disease that is triggered by immune response and also have bad allergies; plants become the enemy. I'm back to physical therapy tonight and I'm looking forward to making progress there.

My dear friend Jason had his book published. He is one of the writers for Damn Interesting started by his brother, Alan. The book is called Alien Hand Syndrome and it features material both from the website and never seen before articles. I've read most of the book and it is weird, wonderful and well-written. Check it out.

And finally, HAPPY CANADA DAY, everyone. Do something Canadian today to celebrate - be polite, say your sorry if needed and drink some beer :-)

I love the stitching-- when I was in 4-H as a kid we learned all our embroidery stitches on paper first. It looks so tidy and cool!
