Sit back and take a free quiet moment to read Heather Prins kit inspiration. I say this would make a beautiful movie...

"Mom, tell me again about when you lived in Paris" And so it begins again. With just the mention of that city I am whisked back in again to a time that lives in my heart. I ache to be there again. I close my eyes and sigh and let my heart relive once again the most magical time in my life. It was 10 years ago, but somehow seems like forever. I was a girl just 23 years old, but I, of course, thought I was mature. On a whim I took my savings and left home - for a summer of adventure abroad! Little did I know the imprint it would leave on my heart forever. I rented a quaint little flat in the Montmartre area, the last village in the big city of Paris, just minutes away from everything and the home to many artisans. My new home was delightful, with it's vibrant pink door it made me smile. The view was perfect. I could see a market from the balcony and off in the distance, a glimpse of the Eiffel tower. I spent my days walking the tiny streets, reading amazing novellas in small outdoor cafes. I wandered museums, bought flowers and listened to the conversations in French all around me, it was like a song my heart wanted to hear. Never before have I felt such peace, my soul was home. It was a Saturday afternoon when I saw him for the first time. The day was bright and warm, almost too much so, as I sat on the bench in the park enjoying the view of the gardens. The flowers, normally bursting with color, looked a little more muted from the afternoon heat. And there, just beyond a little garden on my right, was a man so handsome that my heart literally skipped a beat! I stared at him, unable to pull my eyes away and for a brief second, our eyes met, and my whole world changed.Of course I returned to that park many afternoons thereafter, hoping to once again to see the beautiful stranger and feel that rush in my heartbeat, but to no avail. Finally, nearly a week later, after wandering the gardens for about an hour, I heard a quiet "Bonjour?" over my right shoulder. I turned and there he was! He was an incredible vision, a touch too tall to actually be Orlando Bloom, but a very close second!! We struck up a conversation, of sorts. He spoke a little English and I a little French, but the actual words were of no importance, our eyes said it all.Weeks flew by and our affair did also. I was head over heels for Simon, and he for me. We spent every minute together, exploring the city and learning about each other. He was an architect, and an artist, and he was perfect! We never spoke of when I would return to the States.Finally, the time was drawing near. I had 3 days left in paradise. We drove to the country and walked through fields, ribbons of grass swaying gently in the breeze and held hands. We walked along a path by the River Seine and there was a palpable sadness in the air. He kissed me and I felt him press something into my hand. I cradled the tiny, velvet box and looked into his eyes. "Please, just open it", he whispered. With shaking hands I lifted the lid and my eyes fell on the most exquisite piece of jewellery I have ever seen!! A perfect circle of diamonds!! Tears streamed down my cheeks as he said, "The day we met my life was complete, you are my eternity". 10 years and 3 beautiful children later - a daughter, Solange, the spitting image of her father, has a unquenchable thirst for the story of how we met. And the twins? Well, three year old boys don't leave much time for daydreaming. But everyday, when Simon walks in the door, with the light of love still shining in his eyes for me, I feel as alive as my first summer in Paris!

I will post layouts designed by the All Moments Remembered Design team. If you would love to see what they came up with before I get them posted be sure to visit all of their blogs.

Gelatins Stamps and some idea of what you can make with them....

The colors on this one just grab me. I can hardly wait to use my coffee stamp set.

I love that they stamped the ribbon with the bean stamp.

We have all these star stamps in the store. I love the set and this cute idea.

We have the flowers and letters for this one. Isn't it fun?

I am working on a birthday album and I can hardly wait to use this stamp to show the birth date. It would be very cute to use to date pics or events.

Clock stamps are such the rage right now. This set is wonderful. Be sure to look inside the All Moments Remembered Store and see all the scrapbook supplies we have to offer.

We have beefed up our custom word books. We made the letters a bit thicker so they will hold up even better. Our custom books are 5 3/4 tall and up to 7 letters long. Have fun with these. You can get them shipped within one week of custom ordering your favorite name/word.

Don't forget National Scrapbook day is May 3rd. We will be having an online crop. Lots of challenges and wonderful prizes to give away. Christine Middlecamp will be joining us to chat and show off what she has designed with our May Kit.

May kits are sold out but we still have some June available so be sure to sign up for your subscription before they are all gone.

I wish you all a beautiful weekend!!
Hugs, Stacey

Sneak peek of the MAY All Moments Remembered kit club

Shhhh now do not let on to Heather you have seen this. She will so have me strung out on a clothes line. But I thought it would be fun to do some early sneak peaks. SO what do you think? who would not love to open a box with this inside it? It feels like your birthday once a month. The patterned papers for this kit are simply gorgeous! I can't say which ones I like better. The embellishments are lovely too. I think May's kit is one of my favorites. I can hardly wait to see what our amazing design team does with it. Then to have Christine Middlecamp play with it and create some projects is such an honor. I don't know about the rest of you but I am super excited about this kit. Yes it is sold out already. :( But we do have a few extras still for June if you want to start a subscription then. If you wait until to close there is a good chance you will miss out again as they do sell out fast. We add more kits each month but still they are gobbled up. Be sure to come play at the National Scrapbook Day crop on May 3rd. You can come try some of the challenges and get in to win some raks. We have a great time!! So I hope you enjoyed my personal sneak peek of the May kit.

Happiness to you,

Christine Middlecamp designs with All Moments Remembered May kit club

I am so proud to announce that Christine Middlecamp will be designing with All Moments Remembered May kit club. This is one lady I so admire not only for her INCREDIBLE talent but for the person she is. She is simply amazing! Her passion and courage inspire me daily. Her total sweetness makes you smile. Her raw honesty in her blog has captured my heart and the hearts of so many others. If you don't know Christine please be sure to check out her blog and read all of it!! It is so worth the read. Have tissues ready because she writes from deep in her heart. Wait until you see her talent... Gorgeous! I am so proud to have her design with the AMR kit. Thank you Christine!!
Here is a little about her from her blog...
My name is Christine Middlecamp and I reside in South Saint Paul, Minnesota. I'm 30 years of age and a mother to my one son, Ethan. Before losing my husband to brain cancer in January '08, I spent three years documenting our family story via scrapbooking. I started blogging a little over a year ago after starting a career in the scrapbook industry. After my husband was diagnosed with brain cancer in September of '06, I started sharing our cancer story via the blog. Through this experience, I have grown more passionate about scrapbooking and storytelling. My goal is to inspire others creatively and to bring reflection to those that so desire it.
The May kit is already sold out. :( But if you hurry we still have some left in June and you can start a subscription then and be sure to get your kits monthly.
Be sure to visit Christine's blog and leave her some AMR love!!

Scrapbooking supplies.... ATG Gun, ClearScraps Acrylic letters, and so much more...

Have you ever wondered about owning a Scotch ATG Adhesive gun? What do others who already own one think? Well we asked them... On the All Moments Remembered message board...

O.K. Who has one?
Do you LOVE it?
Does the tape last a long time?
How much is refillable tape?
Is it heavy?Is it comfortable holding?
BUT most importantly....... DO I need one?
Is this a must have?

Here's what many had to say...

1. It's huge - therefore, I don't lose it on my desk! 2. It has A LOT of tape in a single roll! I got mine at the beginning of March and I am just over half way through my roll. I have completed at least the following for sure:*10 Altered chipboard letters (large Rusty Pickle ones)*11 layouts (maybe a couple more????)*22 ATC's*4 Cards Believe me when I say that this would have caused me to run out of my Tombow more than once!!!3. It is REALLY easy to use. I can load it without screwing up! LOL!4. The tape STICKS! This stuff is good stuff! I get really annoyed when items fall off my page, and I am SO happy to have a tape that sticks to just about anything. 5. The refills are around $3 - less than a Tombow or Herma refill and WAY more tape!It is SO worth the money! You make it up in the refills in no time! Also, it is really nice to not have to worry about when it will run out because it lasts so long!

O.K. Who has one? I do, I do!!! Do you LOVE it? ABSOLUTELY!!!!! Does the tape last a long time? You bet!!! Each roll has 36, count them, 36 YARDS!!!How much is refillable tape? Less than $3.00 - much cheaper than Tombow or Hemafix! Is it heavy? Not a bit. Is it comfortable holding? Yes - don't let the size fool or scare you. With a slight learning curve, it's easy as pie to use! BUT most importantly....... DO I need one? Once you get one, you'll wonder how you ever scrapped without it! Is this a must have? Without a doubt!!! Go ahead and get it... you'll be glad you did!

One of the best tools ever (note my sig line). Can't do without it. I tried a friends at a retreat last year (which I'm missing this year, deep depression coming on). It was huge and heavy looking.I have nerve damage to both arms so I'm very careful of anything I pick up. When I tried the ATG I couldn't believe how light it is. I love it. And you can add bling to it. And the tape refill is far less expensive.Just order it and give it a try. It does take a few layouts to get use to it but once you do you'll hate using anything else. Mainly it's figuring out you have to let go of the trigger when you end and then pull up. Nothing difficult.Using it left handed takes a little more time. But if you are left handed you are use to this in this right handed world.Anyone who doesn't like it please speak up. It's good to hear both side! (of course we might glue your hands together with our ATGs)

One main point I'll make is that for ever & ever I was a Tombow scrapper, used nothing else, until about 2 years ago I noticed that Tombow was not sticking to the Bazzill papers, and items started unsticking. I tried other brands of tape, even liked the xyron Cheetah 2", but kept having to buy refills at $10 a pop w/o a coupon. But the ATG gun does stick to the Bazzill, no problems there at all.Yes, buy it you'll love it. I practiced a few times on scratch paper to get the hang of when to release the trigger...but, sometimes I still forget but I still love this product. What I figure I'll do now that Stacey has the refills in the store...each time or two I order--I will put in a refill roll or two of tape. That way, I'm not paying extra for s/h, it's included in my "regular" order. Lot cheaper than ordering the refills from the framing store because there s/h there is high! You will get used to the size in no time, and it definitely is light weight. I love that I know it is right beside my right hand at all times and it doesn't get lost under other stuff because it is big. I lay extra sheets of cs/pp on top of it, but I know it's there because the paper is a couple of inches off the table.

So if you now KNOW you need one you can find them in the All Moments Remembered store. They were a pre-order item but I have many coming in so they will be in stock this week.

Clear Scraps clear acrylic letters are in stock at All Moments Remembered. The ideas on how to use them are endless. Come see our message board and get some fun ideas from the girls.

I played with them one night with my Basic Grey Sultry rubons. I love these. Since then I have made some birthday presents for friends children. I use kid like rubons and do up their names. You can use jump rings to link them together or just stick them to the wall. I am thinking of using some on my layouts.

All Moments Remembered toot for the day. This comes from a very special customer and message board member.

Stacey.. you are the BEST... You made my day today girl.. cracked me up on this gloomy chilly "spring" Monday work day... blah day... The postman brought my orders... Gals.. I told Stacey that between Uncle Sam's taxes and the AMR store I am going broke and she joked about eating Ramen noodles ... guess what.. She put Ramen noodles in my box.. I laughed sooo hard. !!!! The personal touch on this message board and the AMR store is unbeatable anywhere!! Thanks so much!! Oh and I love the Epoxy Grandma stickers, too.. how cute!!! You're the bestest !!!

Teresa Collin's shaped chipboard covers match her paper lines and die cuts, come two to a pack and are made of quality chipboard. Have you seen the beautiful die cut sheets that go with this cover? These are a must see in the All Moments Remembered store.
Three die cut papers from Making Memories Garden Party. These are just perfect for your spring pages. You get one of each: Artisan Label, Scalloped Circle and Scalloped Square.
Perfect with the Wild West collection of paper and ribbon, these boots are made for scrapping! This chipboard album is 8 inches tall and includes 5 pages, 2 cut out stars and a HOWDY word to add on. There's even a spur on back boot.
Great for spring and ready for you to decorate! This chipboard album contains 5 pages and is 9 1/2 inches wide. The front cover has middle circle cut out to show through to the inside page.

Remember we also have custom word/name books. Up to 7 letters, these are 5 3/4 inches tall. Going to a wedding? Why not do up an album made with their last name? Summer is not far off, why not make your child's teacher a book with the school name, or the teachers name? Baby shower? You got it, I can make up an album with the baby's name for you or the mom to be to do up. These are gifts you will be sure no one else will be showing up with. These custom books can ship within one week of ordering.
This sums up what I am trying so hard to make All Moments Remembered (AMR) known for.
I try my best to be the company with heart. The company with customer service that will bring you back again and again. Here is a little note a customer said I could share with you. These notes sure can put a smile on my face. It reminds me to keep up what I am doing and always try to improve too.
Stacey....I just wanted to thank you for the customer service that you
provided with my order. My e-mails were answered promptly and
courteously and my items arrived quickly once you received them. I
also wanted to let you know that I appreciated the little "extra" pack
you put into my order. I have a mini album project that I am starting
tonight and there was an item in there that i actually had been
looking for for the project!
It is a sad fact that we don't often get the personal service that you
provided in today's society. I will be sure to tell my scrapbooking
friends about your site.
Dana L.
Have a creative week,

Karla Dudley makes beauty with the AMR April kit of the month.

Most everyone in the scrapbooking world knows the ever so talented Karla Dudley. If you have not had the pleasure of getting to know Karla and her clean, crisp, layouts always filled with beauty and soul you need to. She is an amazing person. She is real! We all think that those who are on these incredible design teams are so full of confidence and knowledge. They are perfect aren't they? While I was looking through Karla's gallery of work one day I came across a layout she did on confidence. Hmmmm, I wonder who she could be making this layout for? It was for herself. This is the comment she put with the layout...

"This weeks subject was about one of your bad points. I know I need to work on my confidence. I need to believe that I CAN and that's it. I keep talking myself outta stuff...That bugs ^----^ "

Just when I thought maybe I was the only one scared to try new things. To explore with my creativity. I read this and it makes me see no matter how talented one is we all need to constantly be working on our confidence. Our layouts are OURS, they are US. I for one am trying now more so then ever to create things that come from my heart. Come from deep in my soul. I think this is what will matter most in my layouts and albums when I am not here to explain them any more. I have made a true effort to use my own writing in my journaling. Never liked my handwriting much so always use the computer for journaling. My family deserves to know my writing to see me in it. My words are mine and so is the writing of it now. I am being more confident. Go visit Karla's blog, see her work in her gallery, read her writings. GET INSPIRED as I did. I am so proud to show Karla's work here and what she has created with the All Moments Remembered April kit club. She brings heart and soul to it. Thank you Karla for the inspirations you bring to all of us. You Missy Rocked this kit!!

I wish you all a week filled with beautiful inspirations,
