Yesterday, Manda (Nibbles Skribbles) wrote a great tutorial on How To Use A Quick Page.  Quick pages are often overlooked because as creative people we kind of want to do our own thing but don’t be fooled or foolish; they are fabulous tools for scrapping big projects in short order.  It was also perfect timing since a Brag Book page is just a small quick page and A-Manda has a cutie for you today.

The best part is, her entire collection of Brag Books and Quick Pages along with Her Whole Store is on sale right now for 50% off.

It’s the Oh BABY! Big Sale!

theStudio AdvertisementsChristmas is barely two months away.  Yes.  Really.  Even if you don’t celebrate though, brag books are a wonderful gift for any occasion and they are so easy to create and customize.  If you’ve never given a brag book as a gift, this might be the answer to your prayer about what to get the grand parents this year.

Even if you have all of your shopping done (bawahahaha) brag books are a simple, easy way to document your memories for your children or even your parents.

I love autumn.  Fall colors, fall leaves, acorns and cute little squirrels make it easy for me to whip out a book in short order but A-Manda has brag books in every color and theme you can imagine!  Now is the time to watch for the best deals at places like Shutterfly and Blurb.

Did you have a new baby join your family this year?  There are 3 different baby brag books.  These are great alone or mix them and match them.


No baby’s this year?  No worries.  There are brag books for every holiday, every season, and in every color.  A-Mandas’ specialty is children.  She designs great kits and collections with bright, fun colors.

After all that, if brag books just aren’t your thing, you’ll still love browsing the isles in A-Manda’s store.  On top of page kits that are packed with elements and papers, you’ll find coordinating page borders, cluster frames and a literal smorgasbord of products to help you finish your pages and products in record time.

Her newest addition is I Want Candy.  It is filled with color and fun elements just in time to celebrate Halloween.

Get the separates or save on Big Bundles or Mega Bundles but hurry, the sale ends soon.

Here is your free brag book page.  Give it a try.  You’ll see how fast and easy that next gift will be.

It’s October.  You may have been expecting an abundance of Halloween Kits and Collections.  You may still get some of that before October is over but you’re not getting that this week.  Nope.  This week (officially today) there is a brand new Coordinating Collection debuting.  Like the traditional brick and mortar stores that have shamelessly been stocking their shelves with ornaments and pine sprays since what seems to have been the day after Easter, the designers at The Studio have joined the masses.  The theme and category is Merry Christmas, but even if you don’t celebrate Christmas, you’ll want to take a peek.

This isn’t your ordinary holiday collection but it is a great way to get started and keep to your budget at only ONE DOLLAR per product, you can literally shop til you drop and then scrap or craft your heart out.  I instantly though of package decorations when I saw this set of flairs from Nibbles Skribbles.

If traditional is your thing then you’ll love Holiday Traditions by ADB Designs.  It’s filled with poinsettias, pine cones and beautiful, shiny gold ornaments.

Valentina’s Creations has these amazing Merry Christmas Journal Cards.  I can just FEEL HYBRID!  Print these on some sticker paper and your gift tags are ready to go!

I fell in love with Jilbert’s entire Gatherings set.  It focuses a bit more on the Thanksgiving or Family dinner theme, yet it would work for the perfect page of my grandmother or uncle Joe.

Do you bake with your children or grandchildren?  Manu Scraps has all you need to preserve those memories with her Merry Christmas {Christmas Baking} elements and frosted cookie alpha set.

Love the rich, warmth of vintage red?  Studio4 Design Works has you covered with her Merry Christmas Red Stamped Papers.  These are a stunning companion to her Merry Christmas Kit.  It reminds me of hot cocoa and marshmallows and would be perfect for any winter pages or projects.

Ready your winter or festive photos.  There are torn pages by The Kit Cart, Christmas Angels papers by Vero and Tis the Season Splats by The Urban Fairy.

The scrapping possibilities are endless and each of these is on sale for just $1 Each.  Don’t tarry though.  This sale ends on October 15th.  After that, you’ll pay full price and that’s no fun at all!  While you’re there, shopping and working on your list, be sure to pick up all of the bonus Christmas cards.

What’s Your Dream?

by Rebecca 17 September 2014

It is time for the wish lists to start showing up.  Christmas is already in the stores.  I don’t want to look….yet.  The older we get, the harder it is to buy for our grandchildren.  So much of what they have in their life is disposable.  Temporary.  I like gifts that keep on giving and […]

Mel Designs Lost Her Star

by Rebecca 16 July 2014

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 […]
