Out with the OLD and In with the NEW

Hi my Fellow Scrappers!

If you are like me - I bet you have your favorite "GO TO" or "MUST HAVE" Scrappy Tool - and you may (or may not) really cherish it, or would at least be lost without it....

Well, for me - it was my 3+ yr old Fiskar's 12x12 Paper Trimmer.  One of the first ones that came out with the wire cutting guide.

I JUST LOVED that trimmer!  I can not tell you how many pieces of paper that trusty little guy cut for me over the years!

See how well used - I mean -  LOVED it was:

Well, a couple of weeks ago, while prepping for my last class at Scrap-a-Doodle Doo - the wire broke while I was cutting!!!!

I was very upset, and the very next day, I contacted Stephanie at THE DOO, and order a new one right away.

In the meantime, that old "workhorse" kept on cutting - without the wire ( I had to perform a little surgery) but I really felt a little lost, and had to "think" and take a little more time while cutting to be sure I was in line properly.  ( Boy, did that old trimmer spoil me!)

Now I have my BRAND SPANKING NEW one - and feel "COMPLETE" again!!  Thanks Stephanie!

So - I was wondering...... What is your MUST HAVE or GO TO Tool??

Leave a comment  - I'd love to know!

Hi Everyone!

I hope you were able to get your "craft on" this past weekend - even if it was just for a little bit! ;o)

I attended a "No Frills" Crop at my Local Scrapbook Store - SCRAP-A-DOODLE DOO, with some of my Scrappy friends, and we had a blast, laughing and creating  (okay -and eating too, as a day of scrappy must always involve some eating!) 

My friend Pattie even made homemade Whoppie Pies in honor Valentine's Day!  SO WISH I had one right now!! ( "I said as I wiped the drool off my keyboard and took another sip of my Starbucks while dreaming of their chocolaty goodness!)

Well - my day was spent working with the NEW  We R Memory Keepers "LOVE STRUCK" Collection.  I had a blast designing the store's February Kit of the Month - a (2) Two Page Layout that comes complete with instructions and color photos.

Here is a Sneak Peek of the Kit's components - it is Chock Full of Lots 'O Love!

There is Bazzill Cardstock, Jillibean Soup Corrugated Alphas ( a whole sheet!), Custom Chipboard "LOVE" Doo Dad, ( EXCLUSIVE to THE DOO!) Patterned Papers, even a Die Cut! Stickers, a tag, Shear Ribbon and PUNCHINELLA !! This stuff is HOT!
ALL THIS - plus complete instructions and color photos to make TWO 2 page Layouts - and you'll even have some extras to add to future projects too!

Okay, Okay - I'm going to tease you a little more with a few more sneak peeks of the layouts:
