Doodlebug Ghouls and Goodies

August in Utah this year has been really nice. Usually we have really HOT weather. This August has been Thunderstorms at night and a little on the cool side. It has been very enjoyable. I have absolutely loved the weather.

Now that the kids are back in school and I feel like I have bought every school supply on the planet they put out Halloween decorations. YAY!!! I know that I have mentioned it before, but I LOVE Halloween!!! I am so excited this year. I have been pinning stuff on Pinterest and the new scrapbook papers that are coming out are so cute!!!

Doodlebug's new line "Ghouls and Goodies" is no exception. This line follows Doodlebug's color palette and they have done an amazing job. The enamel shapes in this line are so fun. They have glitter in them, so they make your layouts sparkle.  Their paper is some of my favorite. I love my wood crafts that use their paper.
"Ghouls and Goodies" is available at

Getting into the Art of Scrapbooking

While everyone now owns a smartphone, tablet, or a digital camera, and there are lots of free online photo storage sites—not to mention, photo-focused social media sites like Pinterest and Instagram—nothing beats holding the actual photographs in your hands.

NEW Authentique "Spirited" and "Grateful"

The kids go back to school and the mornings start getting colder.  Fall is definitely in the air. It is a good thing that we have the holidays to look forward to, otherwise, I would be really sad to leave summer. Authentique has 2 brand new lines. "Spirited" is an awesome Halloween line. "Grateful" is a really fun fall line. Some of the things that I like about Authentique is their paper. It is a nice, heavy textured paper, perfect for scrapbooking or cards. The stickers layer really nice with pop dots to give your cards a level of dimension. Stick on some mini jewels or sprinkles and you have a card that can't be beat. Check out Authentique today at Happy Crafting!!! Jacqueline

My Mind's Eye Frightful

Halloween is just around the corner. It is my favorite holiday.  According to my 9 year old son it is the best holiday. You get to dress up and "Trick or Treat" from door to door. He loves all the decorations, the costumes, the lights, and the candy. There is a house in our neighborhood that makes homemade sugar cookies and hot apple cider for all the parents (the kids can have some too). It is a blast.  So, when new Halloween lines come out; I am right there waiting to get them. The new My Mind's Eye "Frightful" is soooo cute. I was up at My Mind's Eye yesterday, and I saw all there new lines made up into some really fun stuff. This paper is not just for Scrapbooking and Cards. Check out these fun projects. I am so excited for Halloween. Is it too early to decorate? All of My Mind's Eyes new lines are available at Happy Crafting!!! Jacqueline

Simple Stories Legacy

NEW Simple Stories is available now at We have Legacy and Sweater Weather. These are two perfect lines for fall. The colors are amazing, and just like everything else Simple Stories does, these line are AWESOME. 

"Legacy" is like looking back at someones family history. It has rich colors and wonderful sayings. The journal cards and the paper make all those old photos just pop. This is a great line. 

"Sweater Weather" makes me excited for fall leaves, pumpkins, and apple cider. Pretty weird to be thinking apple cider when it is 98* outside, but fall is just around the corner. Like all Simple Stories lines, these lines go fast. So check them out today at Happy Crafting!!! Jacqueline

Doodlebug Happy Camper

As summer comes to an end, there are always those last minute camping trips before children get back into the swing of school. We don't camp all the often, (it is so much work for me :-)), but my children love it. They love roasting marshmallows and hot dogs over the fire. They like exploring and playing in the dirt and trees. They like the games that we play as a family.

I remember when my Ashley (now 18) was 2 1/2 and Taylor was 5. We went camping in American Fork Canyon. There was just 4 of us. They were covered from head to toe with dirt and mud, but they were in heaven. Those pictures I took and the memories that we have are precious.

Doodlebug has a brand new line called Happy Camper. At the last tradeshow, Cynthia showed us all the cool things that will be available through Doodlebug. They are AWESOME and all of them will be available at!!! Happy Crafting!!! Jacqueline
