New Year's Day Hangover Party Project

Hi, everyone!

I want to thank all of you for sending in your RSVPs for the New Year's Eve/Day Bash! Sign-ups have closed, but show times and locations are available on the event website: 2012 New Year's Scrap Bash.

For my New Year's Day Hangover Party project, I'll be creating a desktop calendar similar in design to this Rolodex mini album: Kids.

Instead of pictures as shown above, I'll be using 2012 calendar pages from S G Holidays for my album. The calendar I'll be using is available as a free PDF download here: 2012 Calendar Download.

For my paper, I'll be using the My Mind's Eye "Lost & Found" paper stack that I purchased from the Hobby Lobby website. I believe this stack is also now available from Michael's and JoAnn's, but I'm not 100% sure about that. You can see it here: MME Paper Pad.

Since you'll be looking at this calendar on your desk all year, it's important to choose a paper collection that will complement the room's decor AND your personal style. So when you're thinking about what paper stack to use, just choose one you really love. Remember: you'll be looking at it for a year.

In addition to the paper, you'll need the following:
1. Chipboard for the base
2. Binder rings to hold it all together
3. A weight for the base so it stays upright. I'll be using sand, but others have suggested rice, beans and glass floral pebbles as well. Any dense material that you can squeeze inside the base will be fine.

That's pretty much it! The supplies are fairly simple. I'm hoping you have all of them at home already. It will be a fun and easy project to work on during the show & at the end of the day you'll have a brand new calendar to decorate your desk during the new year!

No Monday Night Football Tonight!

Hi, everyone! I hope you all had a very merry Christmas yesterday & that you had nice things in your stockings and not coal. Unless you totally deserved coal, of course! ;D

Just a quick post to remind you that the regular 2011 football season is over, so there will be no more Monday night football shows until the 2012 football season begins. We will have one more football related online party & that is our Super Scrappybowl celebration! That will run during the Superbowl and we'll have challenges, prizes and lots of laughs. I hope you can join us!

Thanks again for making the 2011 football season such a blast!

USTREAM Today: Baby Album

Hi, everyone! Just a quick post to let you know that we're done with Christmas projects & today we'll be working on a baby album! My sister asked me if I could make an album for one of her co-workers & since I happened to have some cute baby paper from Simple Stories, I agreed.

I've covered all the album pages already, so today we'll be working on embellishments. This is an album designed to highlight monthly milestones, so we'll be working on the numbers for each month, as well as some other goodies here and there. I hope you'll be able to join us!

I am live every Thursday from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and again from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. on my USTREAM Channel: Live on the {Scrap}Beach.
