Crate Paper Journey

Crate Paper always has a fun style that is all their own. Their new collection "Journey" is just as beautiful and unique as their previous lines. I love to see what ideas the designers for these manufacturers come up with.

I found this cute little bag on Crate Papers blog. It was made to store a child's precious "treasure". This cute custom "treasure bag" is so fun and stylish that I wanted to share it with all of you. This is something that I could have definitely used when my children were small. This would be great to hold all of their "treasures" that ended up in the pockets of their clothes and consequently my washer if I didn't catch them first.

Check out "Journey" and all other "crafting treasures" at!!! Happy Crafting!!! Jacqueline (photos courtesy of Crate Paper)

Back to School in Style with Doodlebug

I know we are all enjoying these relaxing days of summer. There is no fight to get the kids up and ready for school, but the first day of school will be here before we know it. Doodlebug's new line "Back to School" moves to the head of the class. This line just makes me think of new school school supplies, clean notebooks, and the anticipation of a new year filled with possibilities. I thought that it would be fun to show you some A+ projects from Doodlebug's blog. Be a star student and check out Doodlebug's "Back to School" today at Happy Crafting!!! Jacqueline

Say Cheese II Blocks

You know how much we at love these wood blocks. So many of the companies make paper that works perfectly with our 4.5x4.5 blocks. These blocks are AMAZING!!! Not only are they a little bit bigger to allow for a border on these 4x4 squares of paper, but there is NO SANDING needed. They are ready to go. We thought we would share one of our block kits with you. This block kit comes from one of our favorite Simple Stories lines, "Say Cheese II".  The gold foil helps make these blocks super impressive. Check out these Say Cheese II blocks today at Happy Crafting!!! Jacqueline

Summertime Memories

Summer time is a great time to kick back and slow life down a bit. It is fun to explore new activities and spend time with family and friends. All of this togetherness leads to great memories. Stories that you will share for years to follow.  We can't forget that the tans will fade, but the memories will last forever. Archive those memories today with paper and albums from Simple Stories Summer Vibes. This fun, fresh collection makes you think of lemonade on those hot summer days. Check it out today. Happy Crafting!!! Jacqueline. (Projects and photos courtesy of Simple Stories)
