My mom signed up for TLC beacause she knows how much I love their paper. When she signed I found out that the monthly minimum to buy or sell is only $25. If you sign up for the artist choice it covers the minimum and you get 2 cool kits every month. That is so cool. So you get a discount, plus store credit on what you buy or sell and only $25 minimum. I alway spend over $25 a month on scrapbooking stuff! I can't wait to have enough for the starter kit. I am so signing up too. I have enough for the main starter kit cause it is only $49 but I really want the add on starter kit too. There is a ton of stuff in the 2 kits at like 1/2 off. It is so worth signing up. Check it out!!!

Which do you spend most of your time at 2Ps?
Mine would be the boards, in this order:
The Peanut gallery
On the plus side, I am going to a crop tomorrow night at the Archivers in the town where I work. I haven't really shopped for scrap supplies lately. Anyone have anything new and exciting that I should look for (and buy)?

Thought you all might get a kick out of this Funny.
A NON scrapper friend of mine sent it to me.
I think it is pretty accurate! haha.
Wife says to husband...
"Look - I got invited to a 'party' and I won't have to buy a basket, or
jewelry, or candles, or even another plastic container!
This party is different because I'm going to MAKE a page for a scrapbook!
I'm going to learn how to put all those pictures we keep in a box into a
photo album that will last lifetimes!"
FOR YEARS AFTERWARDS what can be heard in the home:
-"How much can a pair of scissors cost? And why do you need an entire
cutting system if you bought scissors?"
-"The photo album was HOW MUCH? You HAD to get a paper trimmer too?
Then please tell me ..what are the scissors for?"
-"How many magazines do you need to buy to be INSPIRED? And what's with all
-"You want what for your birthday? A xyron? What the heck is a xyron?"
-"I don't understand why you need a digital camera. The 35mm I bought after
college works just fine."
-"OUCH!!!! I just stepped on one of your %&*(*&% eyelets! "
-"MORE paper? You haven't even used up what you got already!"
-"First the camera, then the printer, what's next a scanner?"
-"I see..so if we get these target cubes you'll be able to see the paper you
have and then you won't have to buy anymore?"
-"Son, how many times have I told you - You CANNOT play with MOMMY's
-"I don't get it ..why do we have to go to Lowes to get paint chips if we
aren't doing any painting around here?"
-"Don't worry sweetie..we won't tell Mommy you borrowed her stickers to make
Barbie look pretty."
-"You had a 40% off coupon and you still spent over $100??"
-"What do you need all this yarn for? You don't even knit! Do you?"
-"No dear. I do not know how to scan and stitch. Maybe someone on YOUR
message board can help you there."
-"Who took Daddy's sandpaper?"
-"It's 11PM. Isn't that layout done YET?"
-"Shhh..don't tell Daddy that Mommy borrowed his sandpaper."
-"Yes, I guess we can stop at that cute little scrapbook store during our
-"You're going to take a crap? I meant going to a crop... nevermind."
-"NO MOMMY! NO MORE PICTURES! NO MORE PICTURES! NO MORE PICTURES!"
-"So who is this Becky Higgins and what's the big deal about her? She an
actress or something?"
-"I thought you already had a sewing machine. So what's this one for?"
-"No..I've never printed on vellum before..YES..I can help you figure out
the right printer settings..but what the heck is vellum?"
-"Queen of the week doesn't mean you won't still make dinner, right?
-"You just joined a what? A swap? I'm really happy for you honey."
And the hardest one of all...
-"Where did all these boxes of pictures come from...I thought you were going
to put them all in a scrapbook! "

Call me: Lisa
How long have you been scrapping: Since I was born?? Hehe.. Okay, so I have been a scrapper on and off most of my life. :)
Favourite subjects: Family of course!
Do you consider yourself to have a style: I'm not sure I have a style, but I'm a clean and simple kinda girl. I love embellishments, and fibers. If I had a style I guess it would be a lot like Becky Higgins or Heidi Swapp. Then again, I love the distressed look, and have gotten into Altered books and journals lately. So you name it, I've probably tried it! :)
Favourite scrap companies: BasicGrey, My Minds Eye (Asparagus paper ROCKS!), SEI, Sassafras, Bazzill, 7 Gypsies
Favourite embellishments: Ribbons, tags, brads and eyelets
Favourite colour combinations: Blues & greens I guess. Then again, I love pink and brown, Reds/Oranges/Yellows. Ha :)
Random facts: I spend way too much money on scrap supplies, stamping supplies, and anything art related. I have my own scrapbooking Co., I have two Children, a 16 year old daughter, and a 12 year old Son, and am currently going through In-vitro to have another child... YIKES! I love photography, I am a avid Stamper, and belong to WAY to many scrapbooking and stamping groups!

I'm in love with this funny picture right now, as we just had our puppy fixed and she has to wear this cone on her poor head! Haha.

Do you consider yourself to have a style: eclectic with strong leanings for retro
Favourite companies: In terms of paper, I love SEI, Baisc Grey, KI Memories, Memory Box, American Crafts and a bunch of others. I love Making Memories for embellishments and brads. I like small family owned companies for rubber stamps such as the Cat's Pajamas and SunSpiritStudio.com (doesn't hurt I'm on the design team!).
Favourite embellishments: ribbon, mini-brads, metal embellishments (especially copper), fibers, punched simple shapes (circles, squares, tags)
