Launching a New Blog

Let me introduce myself. I am Nancy. My sister, Monica, and I have been totally addicted to scrapbooking for the past five plus years. We have recently expanded into cards and various techniques including stamping, embossing, distressing and more. The Cricut is our number one favorite tool of all times.

The main purpose of our blog is to share ideas, techniques, web sites, products and other information that we particularly like. We would love to share your ideas as well.  I would also like to provide handy guides about tools and other products to help make your buying decisions easier.

Since Monica is addicted to online shopping and You Tube, she can provide us with links to the best deals and videos. Eventually she wants to make her own videos. Monica has young children so she can share wonderful papercrafting projects as well.

Let us know what you would like to see. Check back with us to see what's new. Happy scrappin'!
