With the state of our economy, people will be spending more time at home with their kids...which is a great thing. And for us scrapper's, our kids usually want to 'help mommy' while we 'play'...so this way they can be involved completely...without helping themselves to our stash! Besides that, just think of their pride in making projects that they can give as gifts...the way they will begin to view their own lives if they are documenting it in both pictures and words every month...and the time you can spend together sharing a hobby you love so much.
We've taken all the stress out of it for you...by providing a kit suitable for kids of any age (old enough to hold child-safe scissors, that is) that includes a project 'outside' the traditional scrapbook each month (like a wall hanging, mini fold out book, etc) PLUS an 8x8 layout for them to scrap something from their life each month. Club membership starts at just 19.95 each month, with each additional kit being less...since many of you have more than one child. (if you have more than 6 children...or are planning to join this for a larger group, please email or call us for pricing). Oh, the kits also include FREE shipping!
So, just in time for the start of Hanukah and a few days til Christmas, we're giving you another great gift to give this year. Give the membership to your child or children...as I'm giving it to Keller...but I think we'll be the ones who receive many blessings from the investment we'll be making!
We hope you'll join us. Merrry Christmas!
OH, to join the club, click thru to www.acidfree.com, then click on Retail Products, then Clubs & Kits link. You'll see all the info there.

To make Countdown to Christmas:
1. Cut one chipboard Connector in half. Adhere a solid white Connector Liner to chipboard and fold. Fold a small round stacker at approx. 1/2 inch in on 2 sides and adhere to underside of chipboard Connector to make it stand. Distress all pieces with ink.
2. Adhere stacker pieces.
3. Stamp numbers and letters using our Curly clear stamps. Cut into squares and punch holes in numbers. Screw cup hooks through chipboard, tie ribbons, and hang numbers.

Just look how cute this die cut tree is stamped with our swirl stamps! Such an easy technique - stamping green ink on green paper - makes this tree perfectly adorned.
And, another quick tip...put one of the XL Christmas Slide Spots inside one of our Rings. (Ring and Stacker scalloped circle shown here are from the Distressed Christmas mix & match set)
Enjoy this easy card idea!

These pages are from a baby album I did for a friend having her first baby next week...we can't wait to meet Jackson! Since she doesn't scrapbook yet, but swears she will start with his pictures, I wanted to give her a jumpstart...and I knew she wouldn't forgive me if I 'bought' her a present instead of making one. Thus, I took a couple hours - literally about 2 hours & 15 minutes - and filled an entire album!
I printed his name & the info for her to fill in on cardstock, then traced our small Stacker circle & cut it out to fit inside the scalloped Stacker circle.
After she puts pix on the pages & does her journaling, there's still plenty of room for more embellishments. I wanted to provide a good starting point, but want the book to have her style & special touches.

We've used a 4x12 cardstock strip here, too, for 2 photos. The rings bring emphasis in to the pictures, by just adhering them over rectangle pix...no need to crop them to circles. Also, note the cut-up scalloped Stacker circle used to make 2 different corners stand out.
Don't forget about our SQUARE Stackers, too! We use the round ones so much, that sometimes we forget how easy the square ones are to use on our pages...which just happen to be square, right?? We seem to use them more for wall hangings...but we applied that effect to this page, letting them 'hang' from ribbon on the layout. The 4x12 cardstock strip is a great tip to remember, too...it fits a stamped title, a photo, some embellishments, and journaling, too!

We used one chipboard Connector, one purple Connector Liner, a Bat (from our $1 store), an XL rectangle mount - decorated with lime ink & our Moon & Stars background stamp, and some ribbon & ric rac. Oh, we also used one of the stamps from our new CIRCLES set to stamp & cut around for these silly eyes! Aren't they great?!?!
We hope more of you can join us next time!

We do these type of contests for fun...to give you a silly reason to scroll thru our blog...to learn more about us & our products along the way. We don't really care what the question or the answer is...we want you to enjoy the process....just like our approach to classes & scrapbooking as a whole. Enjoy the journey, regardless of how it turns out. We give you a silly question & have the answer in a blog post, even if it's not the CNN or Google answer. On this one, our local news said we rec'd 17" in one day...obviously more over the 3 days that we were affected by the storm. So, we got answers from 17" to 27", with some down to the hundreths of an inch. We appreciate the effort of your research...but you don't need to look far to answer any question we ask...just head to our blog...enjoy the sites along the way to the answer you're sent to find...then cross your fingers that we draw your name!
Hope that helps explain this past contest a little better.
Now, on to the 3 winners...
Each of you has won a $10 gift certificate to our online store! Just email us at email@example.com by 9-30-08 to claim your code.
Thanks to each of you who participated...and the lucky 3 who won. Each of you, stay tuned...as you know we'll do something like this again soon!!!

What a cute Trick or Treat card!
You can use this card as an easy template for any season or occasion...all by using your 'leftovers' from layouts...a strip of paper, 1 ring left from our Rings pk (27 per pk), a strip from our Tag Wraps, a snip of ribbon, & some eyelets. Oh, but don't forget the fun stamps!! These are from our new Circles set.

I'm not alone in knowing someone who is fighting this disease.
I'm not alone is missing someone who was taken too early because of this disease.
I'm not alone wishing I could make a difference.
This weekend, please go to www.standup2cancer.org and give.
We will be giving $1 from every online order this weekend as we STAND UP 2 CANCER!
Use the XL square slide mount in this layout to bring attention to the focal point of a 5x7 or 6x8 print. You'll love this idea! You can add 1 photo to the Connector Liner, or 3 small ones as shown - depending on how many pix you need to fit on the layout.
Our solid Connector Liners create this page. Just do the mirror image of this for the 2nd page. This layout can be done over & over, just using different colors.
Getting lots of photos on a page is easy with this layout! Just use lots of tags across the bottom of a page...and continue to a double page spread for even more photos. Stacker circles are used at the top. Just stamp your title for any themed page you like.
Remember, you can order these kits on our site...or order the pieces in our Mix & Match Collections to pick your own patterns. Use our sketches for fast layouts...and send us pix of your creations. We'd love to show them off for you!
