Acquire Supplies from Online Scrapbook Stores for Your Scrapbooking

Emotionally, scrapbooking can provide a refuge. It has been noted that children and adults who are going through major transitional events like major diseases or divorce find making scrapbooks an excellent way to get back on their feet. Being able to create something gives a suffering individual a chance to control something in their situation; a possible avenue for their self-esteem to return. Additionally, being able to place such traumatizing events like an illness or an accident in a neat order like in a scrapbook can make it easier to deal with. All these benefits, and more, should be enough for anyone to buy supplies from a dependable online scrapbook store like AllScrapbookSteals.com and start scrapbooking.

Simple Stories Sweater Weather is Perfect for these wood crafts.

I have a good friend who is also my "craft buddy"-- Heather Hose. Heather is a wonderful mother of 2 boys. She also works very hard at her IT job. It is so fun to get together and craft with her. We love to put together different wood crafts with scrapbook paper. We have made several for different themes representing different times of the year and I love everyone of them. We can sand, paint, glue, cut and sand some more for hours. It is really fun and a huge stress relief at the end of busy weeks. She recently made these adorable Autumn blocks and plaque using Simple Stories "Sweater Weather". She cut the vinyl letters out on her machine and used the paper for the background. I think it is AMAZING. She is so talented. "Sweater Weather" is a really fun fall line. The colors are absolutely perfect for this time of year.  "Sweater Weather" is available now at Allscrapbooksteals.com. Happy Crafting!!! Jacqueline (Thanks for being a great friend Heather :-))

Carta Bella "Spooky"

Fall is my favorite time of year to craft. The kids go back to school and the holidays are just around the corner. Halloween crafts are especially fun. I am loving all the new stuff that has been coming out from all the manufacturers. Carta Bella's new "Spooky" is no exception. One of my favorite things about this line is that it has a die of Spooky trees and a bat. The die cuts through cardstock and other thin material. These dies can be used over and over again. These dies create some of the cutest cards and layouts that I have ever seen. I think what I like is the dimension that these cut out dies add to cards and layouts. The layering really presents a nice effect. This line and all the other Halloween lines are now available at Allscrapbooksteals.com. Happy Crafting!!!

Halloween Lobby and Shelf at Allscrapbooksteals.com

Halloween products are here and available at Allscrapbooksteals.com!!! We were so excited for them that we re-decorated our lobby to show off all the new cool stuff from My Mind's Eye Frightful, Authentique Spirited, Doodlebug Ghouls and Goodies, Simple Stories Frankie and Friends, and American Crafts Haunted Hollow. WE LOVE IT!!! The shelf was so fun and we added some washi tape (trick or treat and the candy washi) from Doodlebug that really makes it pop. The wood blocks are covered in Simple Stories Frankie and Friends. There is also a ton of embellishments to make cards and layouts pop. The framed art from My Mind's Eye Frightful is really fun too. We added washi tape to inexpensive dollar store frames to give the pictures our own unique look.  Just so you know the crow finishes it off nicely. That thing looked so real that it kept freaking me out. Let me know if you love it as much as we do!!! Happy Crafting Jacqueline.

Coming Together for the Joy of Scrapbooking

Hobbyists of all sorts enjoy congregating to socialize and share the stories and admire each other’s work. Scrapbookers are no exception. Early this year in South Maryland, though the number of participants wasn’t remarkable, thirteen women participated in a potluck scrapbooking event to socialize and compare notes.
