New Heritage Collection

This set is a late replacement for the old Yesteryear Collection that was retired. So many of us are trying to get those old paper photobooks and scrapbooks in order. I hope this can help.

Heritage Collection Biggie
It has lots of fun things in it, I especially like the Family Tree Papers (3 colors)  and coordinating frames. You can do all photos, just banners or a combination and move them around to fit "your" family tree.

There is also an Add-On Paper Mini with some specialty papers.

This set holds the extra papers I had left over. I didn't have enough room for the red papers in the kit so I just made this a separate set. There are 6 backgrounds in this including a fun large 1/2 book.

Click on any image to be taken to the Scrap Girls Shop where you can see all the details on these layouts as well as the products used.

I am so late getting to work on any Halloween stuff and I LOVE it. I'm going to try and get something out, even if it's just a little thing. The time just flew by ...yes this is my life.

Have a good day!

It's Scrap Girls 9th Birthday!

Scrap Girls is celebrating it's 9th Birthday. I can't believe 9 years have past. I've been at SG for about 7 years now and it seems like yesterday that I was just starting.  There is a lot of fun things going on over there, games, prizes, special deals too.

On October 20th, Scrap Girls will be celebrating nine years of digital scrapbooking and friendship! We will be celebrating all week – October 21st — 25th – with giveaways, games, and chats. This year, we are celebrating with a Sugar & Spice  theme– what every Scrap Girl is made of!  We have a special EVENT page that has all the details on what’s going on during anniversary week, so you wont miss anything!

Our celebration wouldn’t be complete without a SALE – now thru the 25th SAVE 30%!

The Girls always put together a special kit for the anniversary. This year it is a Sugar and Spice theme. These kits are really important because 100% of the proceeds go to Food for the Poor. It's our way to give a little back and you can help too.

The money goes specifically for building new wells in communities that need it the most. You can read more about Scrap Girls & Food for the Poor HERE

Here's a peek at the collaboration kit:

A Touch of Spice Collection

Then all the girls do some special add-ons to go with the theme. Mine was to be inspired by "Basil". So I put together some Art Journaling type products to go along with it.

Here are some layouts I made for the occasion:

Brush Set: Art Diary 2 Biggie

Dynamic Brush Set: Letter and Number Scatters Biggie

I was in an artsy mood at the time, so my interpretation isn't literal. It was fun to play.  Here are the new products: Click the images to go to the Scrap Girls Boutique.
