I graduated from Scrap Attack Scrapbooking University!

Each quarter Scrap Attack Scrapbooking hosts SSU. {SAS}sy Scrapbook University is a series of online ‘classes’ for our message board members. It is a special opportunity for Scrap Attack Scrapbooking board members to learn new skills, techniques and various things to assist and help us grow as scrapbookers.

This last round taught us about journaling, masking, doodling, alcohol inks, paints, and upcucled packaging! Each class gave us an in depth look at various techniques and ideas on how to use and/or improve our skills. It was so much fun and I learned so much I can't wait til the next semester!

 Class #1: Journaling
Class #2: Masking
Class #3: Doodling
Class #4: Alcohol 
 Class #5: Paints
Class #6: Upcycled Packaging

It’s a gorgeous kit packed with new releases, I know you will enjoy it! We’ll have additional sneaks leading up to the release date. For now, here’s a sneak peek of our January 2011 {SAS}sy Kit

Scrap Attack Scrapbooking December Reveal!

This month I was in Christmas Heaven when I received my fabulous kit from Lauri at Scrap Attack Scrapbooking! She really knocked my candy cane knee high socks off with a kit comprised of the oh so jolly Merry Christmas line from Echo Park. Merry Christmas is the perfect blend of traditional Christmas color that you can literally make a page without even thinking about it. Each paper matches so perfectly and the establishments are crammed with everything Christmas like ornaments, presents, snowflakes and what would Christmas be without a tree?!? I got some fabulous Mistletoe and Poinsettias by Prima and Rox which made the perfect finishing touches! Please click on the titles for a full list of supplies!

Must Have Mondays @ {SAS}sy!

Whether it's your favorite pair of blue jeans or your tube of shimmery lip gloss everyone has a "must have" item. Scrapbooking is no different, every Monday let me show you my must have item of the moment! It may be new it could be old, but one things for sure it's a MUST HAVE and right now I can't LIVE without it!

 I first got my hands on one piece of these fabulous papers, I had to have them all! First of all they are gorgeous just the way they are, the bright white with hints of images make them stunning to say the least. But with a little ink or mist you can transform these pages into true works of art! Simply adding ink or mist you reveal beautiful resist images already on the papers  Pink Paislee really knocked it out of the park in making these resist papers. Take a look at some of the {SAS}sy design teams fabulous work with these papers!

It's Offical...I'm {SAS}sy BABY!!!

I am BEYOND thrilled to announce that I have made the Scrap Attack Scrapbooking Design team! This is my very first design team that I have ever been on and can't be more happy! By now you all should know how much I love the site so I hope that my love spreads and you will all join me on the {SAS}sy site for fun Challenges, Inspiration and great chats!

Here is part of the post Straight from Lauri!

And now for the news you have all been waiting for.

I struggled with only picking 4 design team members…so in addition to the full time design team, I also picked 3 guest designers!


And guest desiging for us during this 6 month dt term:


I decided to bring back both Dana and Nadine for another term. They both are extremely wonderful designers and also such a big part of the site – I felt like it just wouldn’t be the same without them for 6 months. I am excited to see how they progress in the next 6 months.

Adrienne has been very instrumental to the site since the moment she joined. She is a wonderful designer and is always willing to get to know you on a personal level. I have never worked with Adrienne but I look forward to working with her as she expands her scrapbooking skills.

And JJ. Last term, she was kind enough to jump in at the last minute and design. But although she joined us for a while, I felt she deserved to design for us for a complete term this time. JJ is one of the most creative people know – and not just scrapbooking wise, she is talented in whatever craft she does.

I was very impressed with all the applications but wanted to see a little more from the following designers. So please join me in welcoming Em, Krystle and Debbie to our team as guest designers over the next 6 months.

Congrats to everyone, I am looking forward to working with you in the upcoming months. And thank you again to EVERYONE that submitted applications. It warms my heart to see so many wonderful scrapbookers who have an interest in joining our team.

{SAS}sy Pink Crop Layouts!

Scrap Attack Scrapbooking held yet another awesome crop, this time to support Breast Cancer Awareness and Research! There were a lot of fun games and challenges to spark your creative juices! I completed every challenge and finished with 7 awesome layouts! Here are the final 6 layouts (first one already posted here)

Here are my layouts in no particular order!
"First Meeting"
This layout was to celebrate a woman from our life. My boys never got to meet my grandparents, on either side. I chose this opportunity to "highlight" my Mamaw, as she was not just a member of our family, she was the family. She was the glue that held us together, she was the reason we were a family. After she left us, the family dinners stopped as did the holidays. It just has never been the same with out her. I miss her so much ...

This layout we had to use Pink to spell out product used. P-Pearls, I-Ink, N-Navy, K-Knight

This one was simple enough, monochromatic Pink...simple? Hardly I was stumped! Still am but I think simple as it is it is done..for now at least :)

"I hope you never lose"
This we had to use Hope, Survive, Pink, Cure, Fight in the title.

"Grandma's Boys"
All we had to do was use a pink ribbon, anyhow anyway.

This was a sketch challenge!

Well, I hope you enjoyed them!
