Fun new changes and some older stash...

Before I share some of the new changes happening with the store and blog, I wanted to quickly share a page I did for Throwback Thursday.  I used some old Crate Paper Emma's Shoppe collection (mostly because I knew it had a lollipop in it)!

I started by using some Gelatto's and water, and then going over it with a stencil and modeling paste.

Behind my photos, I added a few frame shapes cut from papers and just a few simple strips.

I layered lots of chipboard pieces, flair, and die cuts.

And my title I cut with my Cameo and outlined with a black pen.

Although we don't carry this Crate Paper collection any more, there are lots of other fantastic ones still available in the store! LOOK HERE.

Did you know that in addition to our Throwback Thursday Challenges that we also do a monthly S.O.S. group (Scrap Our Stash)!  Be sure to check it out on the forum HERE.

OK, a few new things:

Raffle Tickets:
Starting in February, for every $10 you spend in the store (after discounts), you will receive a raffle ticket with your order.  At the end of the month, I will draw a winning ticket and post it on the blog.  If you have the matching number, you will receive a $10 gift certificate to the store!
