the first is a very, very cute basicgrey mini album using their brand new origins collection. i LOVE this album. i did one but gave it away as a christmas gift - i sooooo wanted to keep it for myself. i just know i won't find the time to do me one. anyways, it has lots of pockets, tags, & fun elements in it! LOVE IT!!!
the other kit was our product kit ... a christmas bundle. it was an AMAZING deal! Over $130 in product for only $25 - what was i thinking??? we sold out of this one in less than 24 hours - imagine that?! so, for those lucky enough to of ordered one - it is on its way & MERRY CHRISTMAS from me :)
a little INFO of our "BUNDLES". what we do quite often, is take a bunch of coordinated product which includes: pattern paper (& usually bazzill too) and various embellishments & the price on these are always a steal! we typically do this before a line gets discontinued or as things start selling out in a line so it no longer is a complete line. after our bundles are made, then we typically put whatever is left on clearance by the piece but just know that our bundles are made first from the best. these bundles are online & we always have them at the crops at the scrapbook shows. it is a GREAT way to get alot of coordinated product for a great price.
with that being said, i would like to announce that we will be having a christmas sale after christmas. EVERYTHING christmas ( & halloween) will be 25% off & some items up to 75% off. old product & new product. paper & embellishments. kits & EVERYTHING! look for details coming....

just for the record, even though we had 9 kits last month & 10 kits this month please don't expect that many every month. haha! i've just had alot of extra time these last couple months - LOL! actually, there will be minimum of 2 each month & usually we try for 4-5 & some months we just have more!
keep in mind that these kits are limited - being once they are sold out they are gone. some kits we have high inventory on & others not so much so some we might sell out of in a couple hours & others a couple months.
one ore thing: since it is the end of our year for teaching classes, i have converted many of our class projects into double-page layout kits. for those of you that were unable to attend classes, this is a great opportunity to get your hands on the class projects & not have to listen to me teach :)
here are the kits this month:

i am sooooo excited about our FIRST scrapbook cruise. here are the details:
7 night Mexican Riviera on Royal Caribbean
Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan, Puerto Vallarta
March 7-14, 2010
We have partnered with CruiseOne/Crop and Cruise so they will handle all the cruise arrangements. That allows me to focus on the FUN part- all the scrapbook activities: classes, crops, contest, & the best is all the surprises!
There will be an open crop 24/7 during the cruise. All scrapbook scheduled events will be held on sea days & the evening after ports. I will be teaching the classes. I will finalize the classes & have more details on them within the next couple weeks. Some classes will be included in your scrapbook fee but there will be additional classes available for those who would like to take more classes. There will be contests & giveaways during the cruise & FUN surprises! (oooh, how i LOVE surprises)!
Come alone - don't be shy. You'll meet new friends. Some of my best experiences have been when i went somewhere alone. Or make it a girls trip - one that we all deserve. Get the best of both worlds: bring your spouse or the whole family - there is plenty for them to do on the ship while you scrapbook. Just join me for lots of scrapbooking, laughs, memories you'll never forget & of course, the late nighters (btw, i get really giddy late at night).
Rates are great right now - $532 pp. Book soon to guarantee fare. Also, book before thanksgiving & receive an extra gift! Make this be a Christmas present to yourself!
All details at www.cruiseandcrop.com
you may also email me your questions: firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment & i will answer your questions.
hope you can join me!

What we would like you to do is create a LAYOUT using products from ONE manufacturer, but mixing at least THREE of their product lines. For example, in the layout below I have used products from five different Imaginisce lines. The green and multi color dot papers are from the Polar Expressions line. The brown polka dot paper is from their Summer Cool line. The orange polka dot paper, fox, and brads are from their Twitterpated line. The striped ribbon is from their Wild Things line. And finally, the chipboard heart is from their Perfectly Posh line.
What you need to do is create your layout, post it in an online gallery or your personal blog and then leave us a link to it in the comments section of this post. On Tuesday we will draw a winner from the comments section for a $25 gift certificate to the Embellish It! online store! Sounds fun, right! So get creating... we can't wait to see your fabulous pages!
Just a little reminder, we now have Basic Grey's Nook & Pantry line shipping. As always, thanks for stopping by the Embellish It! blog. We appreciate the opportunity to earn your business!

The other day while roaming around a local craft store I came across a recipe box on sale for 40 cents. Seriously, only 40 cents! I bought the five they had left and new exactly what I would be doing with them. My Christmas gifts for my neighbors this year -- recipe boxes made with Nook & Pantry. I finished one so far. I used products from the collection pack and from the chip sticker shapes. I just love how it turned out. It's perfect for my neighbor Maggie. Here are a few photos.

In this first page I had a fabulous picture of Sammy when he was much younger. He was such a beautiful golden retriever. I decided to make a page just about his beauty, because that is the one characteristic that comes first in my mind when I think of him.
In this next page, as I was looking through some old photos I came across these from when I was a little girl. On the back of one of the photos I noticed I had printed the words "blite and amy". I was seven years old when I wrote that. I scanned and printed that out to use for my title. It ws my handwriting and my spelling, atrocious as it might have been at the time, that really made this layout work for me. I wrote my journaling about my memories of my horse, Bullet (blite).

To make my letters go even further, I used the misted letters I had removed from the masked tag. I love the way the pale blue looks with the coppery tone of the mist. I added these letters to another tag which I had already misted with a different color. You could also do this with a tag you make from patterned paper or cardstock or put them right on your layout or card. I also added the '09 in numbers from the Merrakech collection and then some twine wrapped around the tag. For very little time and product I have two wonderful pieces that can be used as accents or titles for scrapbook pages. Easy and quick with a designer look!
