Paperbag books

Hi fellow scrappers,

Hope everyone is getting lots of crafting done as we approach the festive season.  Christmas time is the perfect time to let your creativity go wild and everyone loves handmade gifts from the heart.  It was for this reason that at our last crop we had design team member Scrapbooking Nut, teach a group of us how to make paperbag books.  When you say it out loud it sounds really corny, but in all actuality these are wonderful gifts for teachers, grandparents, etc.  We saw people do incredible things with their mini books.  They are quite simple to put together but take a lot of time and planning out is important to get the look you are going for.

We were so impressed with the result that we wanted to share them here with you.  If you have been on the :Loonie4scrapbooking Faccebook group page than you have likely seen some of them, but I feel they are worth sharing.  First off, this one was done by a middleshool girl whose work we are always proud to display on the site.  Jess has a natural artistic talent that was evident the first day she walked into out introduction to scrapbooking class more than 2 years ago.

Next we have a lady who lives, and breathes Steampunk!  Look what she did with her paperbag book. and yes, I swear it is a paperbag under there.  I can't say much about this except maybe, WOW!!!

These are just 2 examples, but we had a group of 8 ladies and we all had a great time.  I know you are saying where is yours, well, first off its not completed and secondly its a gift for someone who may end up reading this so I don't want to ruin the surprise:)

Sunshine enjoyed making her book so much (by the way we need photos Sunshine) that she went home and made 3 more for the Craft sale and she plans to make a bunch more for Christmas gifts.   Hmm, think I may get one?  Hope so!

Now that all the sales etc are over for a bit it is time to get my craft room in order so I can get back to having a place to escape and let loose.  Then I need to get over and help Sunshine set up her scrap room so she has no more excuses for not preparing kits:)  Later this week the team and I are going to sit down and just have some fun girl crafting time making Christmas cards.  I am looking forward to craft time!

Well thats all for now.  If you plan to shop on the site in the near future please remember to allow enough time for your package to arrive as this is a busy time of year for the Postal Service.  If you require gift wrapping that can be arranged and we do offer gift certificates for that hard to buy for person.

Blog soon, happy scrapping!

Hello fellow bloggers,

Life as per usual is always busy and I am always late for everything. ....according to everyone i know lol.  Don't tell my boss but I'm late with my monthly layout and my scrap room is still not even close to being usable. On the brightside I am getting super excited for the paper bag class with Tracey.  Also i have ordered my very own crop-a-dile and it is in as well.....eeeek.  This time of year i don't seem to have any problems spending money just making it.....I'm sure I am not alone in this. with all the new winter paper patterns and kits its very hard to say no.
I don't have much to blog about today ( but promised i would do one lol) but on a side note i would just like to remind all our loyal customers and all our new ones as well that all pre-orders require a downpayment. This is especially true for our big ticket items like our Sillouette machines. For example with the Sillouette machine it is a 50% deposit.($100) this is what you will pay when you order the machine. Then when it arrives at Loonie4scrapbooking you will be billed for the remaining $100 plus tax and shipping. This is all to ensure that we are not stuck with extra inventory if an order is cancelled.
Have you had a look at the winter paper and paper kits? Most of them are in stock and selling fast while Winter Wishes will be arriving soon. eeek. So hard not to buy one of each. which one is your favorite? if you create a masterpiece that you want to share feel free to post to our site. We love to see all your creations.
Have a great day,
I'm off from one job to the next,blogger and now mommy and wife....supper time!
