American Crafts Albums, Custom Name books, & a great new blog


American Crafts Modern and Corduroy albums...
Design and create theme albums to coordinate with layout pages. Modern Albums feature heavyweight chipboard covers that offer a smooth surface for customizing with paper and embellishments. Fabric covers the 3" spine and wraps around inside and out for a clean quarter-bound look. The 3-ring binder mechanism has secure, interlocking D-rings. The cover on this multi-use album can be turned "inside out" allowing the album to stand up, making it great for calendars and recipes. Includes 10 page protectors. Many colors available to choose from.



Custom Name books are so much fun to make for a gift for that special person. I sell lots of last names for wedding gifts. Now a days who needs a toaster? Give them something that no one else will think of and will be cherished forever. How about a fun album for your child with their name? Who does not love to see their name? Going to Italy? Why not a book that says Italy? The possibilities are endless. I cut my chipboard albums in house. I use a thin chipboard so you can all all the extras to it you want without it becoming to bulky. My letters are 5 3/4 inch tall and bond with 3 metal rings. You can come up with any word up to 7 letters long. These ship within two weeks of order and many times sooner.

Scrapbuzz
Do you often wonder WHERE can I find out about this technique to do this fun project for my scrapbooking? Ever need to just look at others work to get inspired? Want to see what the big designers are up to in the industry? Thinking about taking up stamping and card making? Do you sell handmade items? Want a place to get your name out to lots of other people? I have found the best site for this!!! I want to share with all of my readers so you can quickly pop on to this site and find exactly what you are looking for. It is called Scrapbuzz and is owned and operated by an incredible friend of mine Anne Marie. She also happens to run my message board and thanks to her it has been a huge success. She has gathered tons of information to make our scrapbooking questions a cinch to find answers to. Ever wish you had a list of fantastic blogs to check out for ideas on scrapbooking? She has it put all together in one place for you. Please visit Anne Marie's site and leave her some comment love to let her know we appreciate having this put together for us.

Smiles,
Stacey
