As a child we always want to be the recipient of the coveted gold star.  It’s a sign of doing well or going beyond the norm.  To have your star removed or taken away implies that you didn’t make the cut or dropped down a notch, but that isn’t the case with Mel Designs.  Here at the Studio when you are a Guest Designer you have a * in front of your name and you get the top spot on the Designers Page.  We invited Mel Designs to stay and she accepted, so she lost her star and took her rightful place in alphabetical order on the permanent Designer list.  We are thrilled to have her here with us and you will be too, especially if you love a flair for feminine and elegant.

Today, Mel’s Cosy Country Cottage is the Deal Of The Day.  It is a stunning kit with a flash of red.  It is filled with gingham bows, dried roses, and darling little garden embellishments.  It’s beautiful and a lovely way to say Welcome!  Won’t you stay awhile?  Today Only you can get these Cosy Country Cottage packs for 70% off!

Please join us in welcoming Mel to our team and don’t forget to scroll down a bit when you’re looking for her.  Her star may be gone but she’s right where she belongs.

I love Grab Bags.  I love the element of surprise.  I love fantastic bargains.  If you’re like me, you’re going to LOVE the CU Grab Bag Gala going on now in the Commercial Use Store.  Don’t let CU scare you.  Commercial Use items are always “scrapper approved” and perfect for adding a variety of special touches to your pages or projects.  There are paper patterns, pretty little vintage cups, ribbons, pop tops, mats and fresh greenery.  Each pack is priced ridiculously low for a very short time.  Oh, and the best news about these grab bags is there is a full reveal for most of them so you’ll know you’re going to love everything you get!

Diane of ADB Designs has started a new series of questions to help you document your life.  It started as just a few questions.  It started as journaling prompts.  It has grown to full scrapbook pages and some wonderful stories to pass down to the next generation.  It has also grown to become the newest monthly challenge at theStudio.  If you have always wanted to do a better job of documenting your life but the task was overwhelming, this is the time (and place) to start.  It’s a virtual “round table” of others who were just looking for some like minded friends to sit down and take care of a task that had been on their to do list.

Diane is on Question 4 but it wouldn’t take much to go back and start at the beginning.  You can find the full set of questions and a bit of her story on her blog.  The beauty of this series is that you can start anywhere and you can do it your own way.  Here is Diane’s layout about her dad.  She used Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy to make her page.

It is officially summer in many parts of the world.  Even if it isn’t summer where you are, there are probably pictures to scrap, some fun to be had, and hopefully at least a few great stories to be told.  As I browsed through the brand new Summer Fun Coordinated Collection I found plenty of […]

Father’s Day Phobia?

by Rebecca 4 June 2014

In the midst of graduations, summer weddings, and for many the long awaited for, last day of school is… Father’s Day.  For all, June seems to be filling with more and more activities and deadlines.  It definitely makes it harder to squeeze everything in and give everything the attention it deserves.  No doubt Father’s Day […]
