Other news..  I decided to apply to be on The Practical Scrappers design team and this is the email I received…

“We had so many wonderful applications to consider and we want to thank all of you who applied.  It was a blast hopping around to all of your blogs to check out your work!

I have never been on a design team for anyone other than my LSS, which I will still continue working with.. I love Hannah’s!

The July challenge is supposed to start today but with this being a Holiday weekend and parade day for most of us.. the post probably won’t go up until tomorrow.  I will also announce the June Challenge winner tomorrow too.  You still have one more day to get in on my Webster’s Pages giveaway since the comment link wasn’t working for the first few days.. I will announce that winner with the next post.

 

Today is also the 1st day of my annual craft fair.. located in my Scrap It Girl studio.. so if you are a local crafter stop by to shop!  New things will be added almost daily.

 

Well that’s it for now, have a great day & Have a Happy 4th of July~

Scrap It Girl, Kimberly

Favorite Things Friday: Webster’s Pages

Just about an hour left on Friday &  I just realized I am way behind with my posts… I took a week off and then the week before was the last week of school with the kids, I guess time flies when you are having fun!

The winner of my last give a way is APRIL W   Congrats, contact me asap so I can send you your goodies.

My favorite thing right now is Webster’s Pages.  I have always been a fan, but since I dug out some of the old collections and started using them again, I realized I need more~  I love all of their stuff.  Here are just a few things I created using some of the older collections.

New Year’s Giveaway & 6 years ago…

Happy New Year!

Today I am working on my Bucket List, To Do list, and my New Year Resolutions list.  While thinking about what I want to accomplish in 2012 I started to think… how did I get where I am?

6 years ago I was a proud owner of my own Live Trivia  business, which I owned for 7 years.  I sold my business and then for 10 months I tried to figure out what I wanted to do next.  I knew I didn’t want to  go work for someone after owning my own business , so I had to start another business.   I knew that I wanted another job where I was working with  people all the time, sharing something that I loved doing, and being creative at the same time.  Hosting Trivia was so much fun, so my new job had to be fun too!   I also knew that my new business had to be something I could do no matter where I lived.

I had to think about what I enjoyed doing and how I could make it into a full-time job.  I was a mother, wife, and a scrapbooker.  That’s it, I love Scrapbooking!  Hello,  Scrap It Girl!  The name of my business made sense at the time since while owning my trivia business I was known as Trivia Girl, no one knew my real name.  I figured it worked for 7 years, I would try it again.

So here I am in 2012 starting my 5th year as Scrap It Girl.  I am doing what I love!  I am crafting everyday, designing for a few local stores, writing a few crafty articles for my favorite online site PaperCrafters Corner, and I am teaching all kinds of craft classes at 6 different locations.

So if you don’t mind I am a little excited for this New Year to get started! I have big plans for my 5th Year  and I can’t wait to share it with all of you.  Let’s start out with 4 giveaways in January, followed by some prizes in February when I return from the Winter CHA in California and I turn 40!  Oh my…

Here is the 1st giveaway for 2012.  All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me what’s on your bucket list for 2012 and  subscribe to my posts, all you need is an email address.

New Years Giveaway!

Here are 10 things I love to craft with:  American Crafts pink flower trim, K & Company’s Smash book products, Maya Road’s vintage trinkets, Webster’s Pages Flowers, Acrylic Stamps, Vintage Buttons, Tim Holtz stain, Darice Embossing folders, any thing from Martha Stewart, and I love Melissa Frances’ 6×6 paper packs.  Good luck and don’t forget to comment & subscribe in order to win.  I will draw a winner on Sunday January 8th~  Please stop by Live Trivia on Facebook and PaperCrafter’s Corner, tell them Scrap It Girl sent you~
