Learn more about our GDT haydee!

When did you start scrapping? I started scrapping about 4 years ago when a neighbor invited me to a Creative Memories party. I've been hooked since and it's become an obsession.

How would you describe your style? I tend to be more of an eclectic and funky scrapbooker. I love to mix companies and take unusual pictures.

What is your favorite manufacturer? You would think I'm addicted to all of them since I appear to collect them all but I have to say I lean towards 7 Gypsies.

What is your favorite embellishment? I love all of the Tim Holtz & 7 Gypsies goodies.

Have you ever been published? No I've never been published. I've only submitted once a few years ago.

What are your scrappy goals? My goal is only to continue enjoying this hobby and while doing so just preserve a glimpse of who I am and those I love.

When did you join Scrapbook Heaven? I joined about a year ago. I just started becoming active since I have my laptop.

What is your favorite part of scrapping? I love the creative process. Mixing and matching papers from different companies really gets my wheels turning.

Were you surprised to be chosen as the GDT? YES! I was ecstatic to be chosen. This is a first for me - so this will definitely be a memory to keep! Thank you for giving me this honor!

Congratulations to haydee!

A Bit Sketchy

Okay....before I get to the sketch and all that stuff, the first thing I want to say is THANK YOU to all of those that put their own safety aside and were the HERO's on that fateful day 8 years ago.

AND THANK YOU to all of our service men and women who are defending our freedom EVERYDAY!!!

Sigh....I still cry to this date!

Well, let me see if I can share some about a new sketch!!!

This is a fairly simple is my take...

I used the September Paper Kit!!! (If you aren't a Angel Club Member you NEED to be so you won't miss another kit! They are HUGE and full of FUN!!!!)

Hope you like it! I also did this layout for Jona's September Challenge to use 2 different STAMPS on a LAYOUT! (check out ALL the awesome monthly challenges by our Design Team! You are SURE to find some inspiration in there to get your mojo going!) about a little store fun....with the sale this last time I reaaallly dug into the store...I don't think I left ONE page unturned!

Here are a few things I found!

This is Cosmo Crickets Dutch Girl Paper - would be perfect for summer pages, for Christmas pages, for Valentine pages....VERY versatile !!!

How about some 7 Gypsies 97% Complete tags! Did you realize that there are 24 DIFFERENT tags in each set??? That makes them .25 a PIECE!!!! more item....I love me some Hambly!!! And if you have never tried their rub ons you SHOULD!!!! They are the BEST! Super easy to rub on and clean/clear images!

Here are some that would go super with those fall pages you'll be cranking out pretty soon!

So....there are just a few things you will find in the store!!! And be on the lookout for all the NEW stuff that will be rolling in soon!

You have a super week and see ya next Friday!

You've got a dilemma -- you need a baby boy card but your foam embellishments are PINK! What to do??!

Use your foam stickers as STAMPS!

I put the embellishment on a piece of fabric first (just to take off some of the stickiness) then stuck it to my acrylic block.

Stamped the image on my card......

... then finished decorating it.

This tip won't work for alphas, but think of the possibilities with your other foam embellishments!
