We’re excited to announce that Kathryn Scraps officially has its own app! The app can be downloaded to your phone and includes easy access to the shop, blog, Facebook page, Twitter feed, Pinterest boards and YouTube channel all in one place.


 

Our new app streamlines the mobile Kathryn Scraps experience. You can shop for our products, kits, instruction manuals and videos or participate in lively discussions and share your own projects via Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest - all without leaving the app! You will also have access to hundreds of hours of our informative and instructional video through our YouTube channel.

Modern Miss + GIVEAWAY!


Happy Tuesday, everyone! A while back I was bopping around YouTube and saw some lovely layouts from Nicole Jones.




Nicole

I asked Nicole if she'd like to create some layouts with one of our Modern Miss kits and some products from our shop and she graciously agreed. Look at the marvelous projects she created (and doesn't she have great tips for organization!?!!!). Be sure to watch and comment on her videos because she has a chance for you to win one of our amazingly yummy Doodlebug Sprinkles Vellum rainbow assortments.





Beautiful Inspiration

To see Nicole's take on the Modern Miss kit, watch these awesome videos. You can watch in the window below, or click her channel link about to watch over on YouTube.








Have a great week!

Another Look: Convertible Album + GIVEAWAY!


Happy Wednesday! A while back I was bopping around YouTube and saw some lovely albums from Ginger at My Sister's Scrapper.




Ginger

I asked Ginger if she'd like to create a project with one of our tutorials and some products from our shop and she graciously agreed. Look at the gorgeous album she created with our Convertible Album tutorial (the first one I ever wrote) and our Prima Something Blue kit.





A Fresh Look

To see Ginger's take on the Convertible Album, watch this awesome video. You can watch in the window below, or click this link to watch over on YouTube: Something Blue Convertible Album.




Ginger is also giving away a copy of the Convertible Album manual on her blog, so be sure to stop by there and leave her some love for a chance to win.


Have a great week!

Ready to Crop Out Cancer!?!!!




 Crop Out Cancer

Starting at 2:00 p.m. Eastern USA time TODAY I am hosting a free online class and crop in my classroom open to all paper crafters. This is a charity crop to benefit the American Cancer Society and the National Kidney Foundation.


During the crop, I will teach a live class on my new "Layers of Love" album.
This hard cover paper bag album was designed especially for this event, and holds over 42 4"x6" photos. Copies of this manual will be sent to anyone who donates to the American Cancer Society or the National Kidney Foundation (details below) during the crop.


Layers of Love Album

The "Layers of Love" album was designed especially for this event. I will be teaching this album live on the air during the Crop out Cancer event on April 12th. See the "Ways to Give" section of this blog post for more information on how to get a copy of the manual.

This paper bag album's hard cover and sturdy spine protect it from wear and tear while making it look beautifully and professionally hand crafted! Holding over 42 4"x6" photos, this album makes a wonderful gift or showcase for a special event.
The 42-page manual contains a supply list, cutting guide, detailed measurements and step-by-step instructions with over 150 color photos for completing this project.








Ways to Give

To date we have raised over $2,500.00 for the American Cancer Society, National Kidney Foundation and various international cancer fighting charities. We've also collected over $3,000.00 worth of supplies for Children's Hospitals around the world. THAT'S SO AWESOME!

There are still two ways to give and receive a copy of the "Layers of Love" manual before it goes on sale April 14th - please read the below instructions carefully.





Donate financially to the American Cancer Society through our Mosaic of Love web page before 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, April 13, 2014.
 
Be sure to include your name and email when you donate.

Donate financially to the National Kidney Foundation before 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, April 13, 2014.

Classroom Chat: How To and FAQ

We're just a few days away from Crop Out Cancer and I am so excited! Yesterday I prepared all my supplies for the class, so everything should go really smoothly. :)
Mr. Lifeguard and I put together a brief video overview of the classroom and chat so that you will be prepared on Saturday. The most important thing you can do between now and then is make sure you have the most up to date version of Java available.
Watch below, read the FAQ and don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!


 Classroom FAQ:

Q. How do I get to the classroom early so I can make sure my Java is up-to-date?

Q. How I update/install Java for my PC?

Q. How do I update/install Java for my Mac?

Q. I updated my Java but cannot connect with my OS-9 or below Mac.
AddonChat is not supported on Macintosh OS 9.x and below systems. AddonChat runs best on OS X when using Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer or Safari. We encourage you to use the Software Update utility provided in OS-X to ensure that you're using the very latest version of Java. OS-X 10.4.7 or better is strongly recommended.

Q. What time is Crop Out Cancer?
Saturday, April 12, 2014 beginning at 2:00 p.m. Eastern USA time.

Thank You!
