Kathryn Scraps Now on Pinterest!

Hi, everyone!

I hope you're having a great day & that you had a wonderful weekend. I taught my Kaiser Craft "Sweet Nothings" album-in-a-box class on Saturday and it was a huge success! Not only were all of the attendees people I already knew from the show, but also we had people there from Virginia, Maryland and Canada! It was such a fun group & I was so happy to meet everyone. :D

This morning every single Front Door album went out in the mail, so those will start winging their way around the world. That class starts on April 5, 2012, so anyone who ordered this weekend should get their album in plenty of time for it to be there when the class starts.

The subject of Pinterest came up during my show last Thursday, and Ella suggested that I create a board on my account where you guys could pin pictures of the projects you create that are inspired by my shows and tutorials. So I went ahead and did that today. The board is on my Pinterest page and is called Inspired by Kathryn.

In order to pin to this board, I'll need to add you as a contributor. If you'd like to pin projects that have been inspired by me to the board, please send an email to me at with the following info:

Your Name
Preferred eMail address
Link to your Pinterest

Once I have the above info, I'll send you an invitation to pin to the board and you'll be able to post your projects there.

When posting to the "Inspired by Kathryn" board, please let us know which of my projects inspired your creation. Please only pin projects that have been inspired by me.

Pin away!

Now Available: Front Door Albums

Hi, everyone!

I have been a busy little bee around here. I have projects in the works for both Graphic 45 and Fancy Pants Designs that will be YouTube videos before the end of the month, so keep checking back here for more details on those.

Also I have been getting prepared for my class at the local scrapbook store here in town. It's this Saturday and three people from the bog and USTREAM show are coming, so I am excited to meet them! We should have lots and lots of fun. I hope you all have exciting stuff planned for this weekend, too!

I have another exciting album series planned for my USTREAM Channel. This one features an AccuCut die in the shape of a front door, so we will be making a "Memories of Home" album. I hope to start this series on Thursday, April 5th.

Front Door albums will begin shipping on Monday, March 19th in the order in which purchases were made. I'm hoping that will give you plenty of time to receive your album before the class, even if you are outside the country.

Here's a picture of the front door album:

The album measures approximately 5.75" x 10.5", so it's quite large. You'll definitely need a 12"x12" paper collection for this one. I'll be using papers and embellishments from the Cosmo Cricket "Tea for Two" collection for my album.

Price options below include album + shipping for USA and Canada. For all other countries, please choose "Album ONLY." After checkout, a separate invoice will be sent with the exact shipping charges to your location to ensure you are not overcharged. If you purchase multiple albums, we will combine shipping and issue refunds for shipping overages when possible.

Shipping Options

Also today is Thursday, so please join me during my regularly scheduled USTREAM shows at 2:00 PM Eastern USA time and 9:00 PM Eastern USA time. This week we'll be working on some Spring/Mother's Day cards with stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations. I hope you'll be able to join us!
