Hijacking the Blog....Congrats to our amazing Diva Lori!!!



**Click on the pictures above to see them larger and in closer detail**

This may be something you have already seen or heard but.....did you know that SGD's very own Scrapbooking Diva Lori was published for her very first time? That's right! And she was published not once but three times in the very same issue of Canadian Scrapbooker. Holy Smokes Girl!!!!

That's right you can see Lori's published work in the pictures above I scanned from the magazine and also in the Spring 2011 issue shown above. Also you can see these layouts and more at SGD around the store- we have lots of Lori eye candy :)

So just how proud are we.....
To the Moon and Back baby!!!!!!!!

Can you help us show Lori the love? Leave a comment here congratulating Lori and you will be entered in to win a March's SGD monthly scrapbooking kit that was put together by Ms. Lori herself. Woot Woot!

You have until May 1/2011 to join us in spreading the proud joy and on that night one of the special SGD Cheerleaders who leave a comment on this post will be notified that they won!

So HIP HIP HOORAY LORI!!!

Love the ever so proud SGD Gang xoxo

A Special Lady

Her name is Bea.


Every Thursday we have what we call our "Thursday Ladies" come in & crop the day away. They bring their lunches & share their memories together. Many times the laughter from their table is so infectious we find ourselves in tears laughing until our cheeks hurt. Together they help one another put their memories into scrapbooks and the special friendships they have formed is wonderful to see.


It is with great sadness that we tell you that we lost one of our very special Thursday Ladies, Bea. She was a remarkable woman with her matter-of-fact ways - you never had to guess what Bea was about; what you saw, is what you got .... and what we got was one incredible woman.


Bea, we will all miss you very much. You are in amazing hands right now & we will never forget you. Our thoughts are prayers go out to everyone that knew and adored her ....

New BASIC GREY - Hello Luscious

Okay you Basic Grey Junkies!! Have you seen Hello Luscious??!! I wasn't so taken with it at first, then I took some home, started playing with it, and fell in love. Here is one layout I did with it:

You have to hand it to Basic Grey, pretty, bold patterned paper that somehow all works together. I used 5 patterns in the layout, plus the alpha stickers:

And the embellishments, along with some Bazzill cardstock, a Martha Stewart border punch and a little flower punch:












So what do you think of this new line? We also have some more new stuff coming soon from Basic Grey. Tell us what you think of Basic Grey Hello Luscious (and my fabulous layout of course!!), and you could be the winner of the above pictured product!! Leave a comment today and we will pick a name tomorrow!! Have a fabulous day!!
