    BIG news at Scrapaholics



    I have been working on a secret project with someone special for almost a year now. You may have heard of her…

    stacy julian digital scrapaholics1 BIG news at Scrapaholics

    I am thrilled to announce that Stacy Julian‘s new line of digital templates are now available exclusively at Scrapaholics.

    You already know that I am a huge Library of Memories enthusiast. I have blogged about it many, many times now. I have an entire store dedicated to it. I’m a super fan and I am totally OK with that. The more the merrier I say.

    You can imagine my surprise when last spring, out of the blue, Stacy called to tell me that she had seen my LOM layouts in the Big Picture Classes gallery and loved them. (At that point I was shocked/speechless.) When she said that she had heard of Scrapaholics and wondered if I would be interested in creating templates of the navigation pages in HER library I just about dropped the phone. Would I? YES!!!

    Stacy lives not far from where I grew up, and literally minutes from my aunt and uncle, so I visited her this summer and took photos of her navigation pages in order to create digital versions. I’m not going to lie, I’m fairly certain that I heard a choir of angels singing when I saw the original Library of Memories. The Library of Memories that started it all. SO COOL.

    It was so much fun meeting Stacy in person. After reading her magazine and books, taking her classes, and working with her over the phone and via email, it was like catching up with a dear friend.

    A few people have asked me if Stacy will be making 12×12 versions of her navigation pages. Yes! I can’t give you an exact date, but they are in the works. Once the paper layouts are finished I will get to work on the digital versions.

    If you are a member of the LOM Community at Big Picture Classes make sure and visit “LOM News” section of the message board. *wink*

    Good Things Come In Three’s



    Number One:

    Remember a few months ago when I said that I was *almost* done with my School of Life templates? Well guess what? I am THRILLED to present not only templates but an entire School of Life Collection

     Good Things Come In Threes
    I very rarely, if ever, go back and remake completed layouts. I have hundreds of pictures that need to be scrapped, why remake pages? I made an exception with Zoë's School of Life album because a) I want to use the same format each year for her entire school career; and b) it is the most loved album in our library. It needed to contain the most precious photos and details. The previous design didn't provide enough space for journaling or photos (in my opinion).

    I love, love, love how Zoë's album is coming along. I was as happy as a clam when the layouts I ordered from Persnickety Prints arrived today. I'll post pictures of the actual album tomorrow. I just need to finish assembling/filling the pocket pages. For now, here is a look at the templates in action. Please forgive the oversaturated GIF. I promise, the papers don't look like that IRL. 

    To celebrate the entire School of Life collection is 20% until Valentine's Day. Never say I don't love my blog readers. Heck, I'm just happy there are some of you left! 

    Number Two:

    Scrapaholics got a facelift! Amanda Kay did a fabulous job on my new shopping cart system and put up with me. (I've been told I am a bit of a perfectionist.) I couldn't be happier with the end result. If you ever need a shopping cart or gallery installed or are looking for a graphic designer, Amanda is your girl. I give her five stars!

    Please note: You will need to create a new account in the new shopping cart. I was not able to import the data from our old shopping cart system.

    Number Three:

    Scrapaholics now has a gallery!!! Feel free to upload your layouts (using at least 25% Scrapaholics products) in the new gallery or just browse the layouts to get your creative juices flowing.

    Please note: The gallery and shopping cart have separate systems so you will need to register before you can upload any layouts.

    Time for a Giveaway!



    The Scrapaholics Facebook page reached 400 "Likes" yesterday. How exciting! I think that calls for a giveaway, don't you? I am *this close* to finishing a couple new products, but in the mean time…

    If you have been reading this blog for a while you know that I am an avid LOM'er. I won't lie, one of my favorite things about the system is the color coordinated albums. Color coordinated anything makes me happy. My four main category colors are pink, yellow, green and brown. I have also added red for my School of Life albums and cobalt blue for my P365 – Project Life – Daily Photos albums. Yesterday I decided that my Daily Photo albums really shouldn't be a separate color. Really, if everyday photos aren't "Things We Do" (which happen to be my yellow albums) then I don't know what is. By the way, my library doesn't look like this anymore. More on that coming soon!

     Time for a Giveaway!

    What does this mean for you? I am giving away my gorgeous 12×12 WRMK Leather Cobalt 3-Ring album to one lucky blog reader. It is such a beautiful rich blue color. I kind of wish I had chosen it for one of my main category colors.

    The Big Reveal



    I am so excited to finally reveal the new look for my store (and blogs!) I have been working with Shalon at Paper Me Pretty for the past few months getting everything just right. What do you think?! I am loving it! Everything is nice and fresh just in time for National Scrapbooking Day. It's like Christmas, only better!

    I threw my back out this week combing Eden's hair. (How lame is that?) The downside is that I was stuck in the recliner for two days. The upside is that it gave me lots of time to design some fun new products. Wanna see?

     The Big Reveal

     The Big Reveal

    I have finally found some designs for my Library of Memories framework pages that I am excited about.  I can't tell you how many times I have started and stopped, only to discard the pages later. I have created no less than twenty pages in the last 24 hours and love them all. The secret is simplicity. I was making the pages more complicated than they needed to be. You'd think that I would know better by now. I am a clean and simple girl. 

    Here are some of the pages I have been working on. I'm not finished by an stretch of the imagination, but I have made a pretty good dent. (The animation may take a moment to get started. Just give it a moment.)

    Alright, I am off to pack for our trip to Spokane tomorrow. (Don't the Bloomsday organizers know that they are disrupting my NSD plans?) Speaking of NSD, don't forget to stop by the Scrapaholics Facebook Page for a 30% off discount code before you go shopping!
