...to Alisa Logue, she won the Cricut tip drawing! Alisa wins a package of Cricut mats to help her continue her Cricut exploration. Remember to comment or contribute to the weekly tip to have your name entered into a prize drawing.
First I want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who participated in our 2nd Anniversary Crop Friday night - it was incredible!! To top it off, our DT gals brought some great samples of what they do best to share. I think they gave us all some inspiration!
This week's tip: Make a pocket out of your photo by attaching it to the page by sewing around 3 edges of the photo. You can then journal on tags, embellish the ends, and slip it down behind your photo. Using page protectors? Simply cut a slit over that tag so that you can access it from outside the page protector. Make sure you comment to this post with a similar suggestion to be entered into the drawing.
WINNER! WINNER! WINNER!! Congratulations to Gloria Harrison for winning the $50 KPS gift card and to Marci Haack (in the photo below), for winning the $100 KPS gift card.

We're unpacking fun stuff today - come see what's new!!
Alisa Logue: wife, mother, daughter, friend, creative guru!!! Alisa's been a big part of KPS since forever, and a good friend to boot! I'm not just saying this 'cuz her hubby Shawn is an incredible cook (our cropper's beg for his enchiladas!), I can call her up and ask for a last-minute class idea and she hits it out of the ballpark every time. Where does she get it???
Anyway, Alisa is one of our Design Team members here at KPS and I'd love for you to get to know her better. Check out some of her stuff by clicking on the DT gallery.
How long have you been scrapbooking?I started scrapbooking when I was ten years old.
Why did you get started?My grandmother gave me one of those old magnetic page albums and I started saving every scrap of my existence and documenting it in an album.Scrapbooking has come along way since then and I love it just as much now for the artistic outlet it provides me as for the obvious benefit of preserving our family memories.
What is your favorite scrapbooking tool, line, or celebrity?I have two favorite tools!I love Fiskars border punches and I adore my Cricut machine.My favorite line has always been everything by Basic Grey!My favorite scrapbook artist is Christine Middlecamp.You can check out her work on her blog herehttp://retrospection.typepad.com/
What is your beverage of choice while scrapbooking?I love Jones Berry Lemonade Soda
Who do you scrapbook about most?I scrapbook my six year old daughter Brynli the most only because she is my most willing subject to be photographed.
What is the most fun place you have traveled to and why?I was an exchange student to Belgium in high school.On that trip I visited 9 countries in Europe as well as 10 days in Russia.It was an amazing experience.But I have to say my funnest trip was the trip to Hawaiiwith my hubby.
If you were on a reality tv show which one would it be and why?I would love to be on The Amazing Race with my husband!I love to travel and love adventure and my husband is so competitive he would dominate and make us a million bucks (or whatever the payout is.)
What is the craziest thing that you have ever done?As much as I love adventure I am practical and have a reserved nature so I am not too crazy but I guess it would be hitch-hiking in Europe.
What was your favorite childhood food?Pepperoni Pizza at the Grizzly Bear pizza parlor
What is the best concert you have ever been too?I haven't been to many concerts but the Jamie Cullum concert at Britt a couple years ago was super-duper.You could feel his passion in his music!
Thank you all for your prayers in keeping Alex, Candice & Sydney safe as they journey across this awesome country of ours. After an uneventful 5 days of driving, they arrived in Warner Robins, Georgia late this afternoon. They were met by a familiar face and a warm home to stay at while they transition into their new home.
This photo was taken somewhere in either New Mexico or Texas (I don't have all the info yet), and they were still smiling. Even Reagan (their dog), seemed to enjoy the trip! Candice has promised to send more photos as they settle. I also made her PROMISE me a new photo of Sydney emailed to me every day!
Knowing they have safely arrived, I can resume sleeping!!
Don't forget to stop by and enter your name into our anniversary drawing, we'll be picking the winners Friday evening at our anniversary crop (which you really should sign up for!).
Instead of giving out a tip this week, I'm asking for one: For all you Cricut or Cricut Expression owners, what fun things have you learned to do with your machine that the instruction book did not show you?? The winner of this gets a free set of Cricut cutting mats!!

This last week we've been busy unloading some great new products.

Complete collections that include chipboard, clear stamps, glitter chipboard shapes & letters, ink pads, crochet flowers, ribbon, transparencies and die cuts, in addition to the awesome paper! They've really done a great job at keeping the price points reasonable in these lines. A HUGE thank you to Stacy who is pretty much the only one that can get those clear plastic containers together and on the metal racks. When I was ready to throw them across the room, she came to my rescue!!
From Basic Grey: Ambrosia and Offbeat
More coming in pretty regularly - we'll keep you posted.
Hello friends!! Thank you for your patience this week, I'm on an emotional roller coaster with the kids leaving TOMORROW (insert sad face here).
Lorelei and I were just chatting about fun little tips we could share and she suggested the one that we were taught and use over and over again, especially since layering is the thing to do right now. Don't have a flower? Make your own by punching out a circle and cutting little pie-shaped slices around the circle. Cut the slices any size you like, and as many as you like (but an even number looks best). For variety, cut little Vs at the edge of each petal.
If you have any tips to share, this is the place to do it. This week we are looking for fun flower ideas. Remember, once you post, you'll be entered into a drawing for a page layout!
