saturday special - may 12

I am still recovering from National Scrapbook Day! At one point this week, I had three projects on the go!!

The blogosphere was just as busy and there was a ton of scrapbooking goodness, two new collections and some sad news.

1. The sad news this week: the August 2012 issue Scrapbooks Etc. will be its last. I love their website and beautiful magazine. And I hate to see anything related to scrapbooking close up shop.

2. In better news, Basic Grey released two new collections: Paper Cottage and Clippings.
Love these buttons from the Paper Cottage collection!

3. Kris at Bo Bunny created a beautiful mini-album using the Weekend Market collection. I just got my hands on this collection and I am thinking of using it in layouts for Scouts. The colours are amaaazing!

4. Melanie Bauer at Basic Grey created a beautiful tea pot for mom.

5. Speaking of tea, I love me a delightful tea party. Especially one designed like this by Larissa (In a Scrap of Paper). Wow! Love the girlie Girl Land collection from Webster´s Pages.

6. Irene Tan aka Scrapperlicious is one of my favourite designers. She made this beautiful tag.

7. I love the idea of a memory box. Jana Korečič from Scrapbook Abundance made a beautiful one she calls Light blue echos.

 8. I made this card for my co-worker's birthday. He liked it!
9. This week, I'll be adding pictures and titles to a beautiful Prima album I made during Cari Fennell's class on National Scrapbook Day. I hope to show you the album to you this week. In the meantime, here's the album cover. Pretty wow, eh?

Wishing you a wonderful week full of scrappy goodness!
