Summer Rewind

We’re in the midst of the Summer Rewind Sale at Scrap Orchard. If you missed some of Chelle’ releases, go check out the Summer Rewind Specialty Store at Scrap Orchard. Spend $15 and you get the Big Screen {Kit} & Big Screen {Add On}. I love Chelle’s Alphas. If you pick up the Big Screen Kit & Big Screen Add-On,  it includes 2 new alphas, papers, stitches & washi tape. Keep an eye out. Make sure you get yours today. {No links here, you get them FREE when you spend $15.}

For our CU Friends, we have CU Rose Gold {Trims.} I’m predicting we’ll see more of this trend in the upcoming fall and holiday season: rose gold. A marriage of gold and Panatone’s color of the year: Marsala, it’s more pink than a traditional copper. Don’t believe me? Just google “rose gold nail polish” My florist daughter says if they spray the vase rose gold, the arrangement runs right out the door. They are getting more requests to add rose gold to bridal arrangements. I’m sure it’s also popping up in home decor. With fall on the way, here’s a handful of foiled ribbons & trims in rose gold.


Have a great weekend!

CU Shazam Playdate & Great Outdoors Sneaky Peek | Digital Scrapbooking Week In Review

Hello Friends!

Got a couple of quick things to share with you today.  First Chelle released a new fantastic Alpha Doodle this week to add to her collection, CU Shazam Alpha Doodles. I love all those fun angles and curves. Retro is hot and this alpha is the perfect fit for the retro style.   Add a hand drawn feel to your layouts.  These alpha doodles in a variety of styles will make it super easy for you to create the perfect alpha for your layout.
Our Creative Team usually does layouts for our personal use products, not so much for the commercial use things, but I put the word out asking if anyone had used Shazam in a layout. Krista quickly did this layout for us.
What to use the Alpha Doodles? Here’s a link to a tutorial.
Earlier this week (in our newsletter), Chelle gave us a hint of what’s to come next week.

Make sure you stop by Chelle’s store next week for this new collection.
Talk to you soon!


CU Dotty Patterns Playdate | DIgital Scrapbooking Week In Review


This will be a quick review. Chelle released only 1 product this week from her CU Store. Gone are the days of plain & simple polka dots.  CU Dotty Patterns makes it quick and easy to spice up your polka dot patterns.


For all of our friends, Chelle mentioned this in her tip of the week. Not so much a tip as a product endorsement.  A few weeks back I heard from Steph (from the Daily Digi & Capturing Magic) about a waterproof phone case.  Well, I already had a life proof case.  In fact I’ve had two of them.  I LOVE taking photos with my phone in wet situations…like the pool & water rides.  But my life proof case is pretty complicated to use and quite expensive  (less than replacing a wet phone, but still…)
ANYWAY…Steph said this phone case was affordable and worked great.  For just $10 I immediately ordered TWO.  (One for my husband and one for my daughter)  IT. IS. AWESOME.  SO easy to use.  Almost as easy as adding your phone to a ziplok back.  AND I don’t have to take my phone out of its case to use it!

Photos are as clear as if my phone was not in the case:

See you next week!
