New Kit- Baby's First Year

This kit is 26 pages of fantastic and cute babyness. It is a kit to make Baby's First Year in a scrapbook, two 12 x 12 pages for each month with a few spots to do some quick journaling, plus a birth page and a 1st birthday page.

We used the Snugglebug paperline by Little Yellow Bicycle, the patterns are just perfect for all kinds of baby photos. The boy papers have glazing, the girl papers have glitter.
Lots of fun stickers and embellishments, buttons, brads, ribbon, custom die cuts, pre cut photo mats and so much more! This is going on our website in the morning. Updated- Click HERE for more information about this fantastic kit.
$65 for the kit, includes everything to complete all 26 pages, except adhesive.

And then there were two. . .

Ooh that sounds very ominous doesn't it? Maybe because I have been looking at too much cool Halloween paper lately.

Well, as we all know our world is always a changing, and we have a change here at Scrap Yard Chicks too. Some of you might already know, but our good friend and fellow Chick Kathy is no longer working with us. We wish her well with her future endeavors and will miss her fun personality at our events.

So that just leaves two original Chicks left, Darcie and Kerry. It is funny since we have known each other the longest, we figure we have been scrapbooking together for 10+ years. We met scrapbooking at our friend Serena's library crop in Issaquah. Wow, there has certainly been lots of scrapbooking and photographs along the way.

What does this change mean for our upcoming events and classes? Its all good for our customers. We will be bringing in some outside teachers to develop projects and teach classes at our upcoming events- be on the look out for the samples for our Fall Workshop Weekend very soon. Darcie and I have been talking to a few different ladies- we are lucky to have so many talented paper crafters in our area. It is really inspiring to see some of the amazing work that people have put together. So our customers get a wider range of project styles, but with the same Scrap Yard Chicks attention to every detail, TONS of new products, and all of the extra touches that set us apart.

If you have any questions about the changes at Scrap Yard Chicks, or have an amazing paper crafter that you would like to introduce us to- please send us an email at

Thanks Chicks!
