4- Pink tinted embossing ink is a great idea so you can see where you stamp, but when you stamp on white and use clear embossing powder it pretty much stays pink. Which is good if you like pink, not so good otherwise.

Darcie and I decided that we need to do a theme for winter- and we LOVE Zebra stripes, (Hmmm have you seen the zebra stripe Dansko shoes? Fabulous) so we thought we would get a little wild! It makes for a lot of fun as we plan goodie bags, decorations, name tags, etc. No, we are not doing all animal print projects.
All right enough with the blah blah blah already. Here is a sneak peek of one of the big projects we have for our weekend.
Our first sneak peek is a 6x12 Travel Themed Album designed by Kerry. So many cool cool pockets, tags, file folders, transparencies, etc. with this album. The collection is by Teresa Collins and she does these wonderful sheets of punch out pieces that are -pre scored- they fold like butter. This album is the perfect showcase for your favorite trip photos- even Disney would look great with the Red/White/Blue and Black color scheme. There is a ton of room for photos, journaling, mementos and more in this wonderful album.
Thats all for today- hmmmm. Check back tomorrow to see what else we have coming your way!

This morning I had such a great surprise when I logged into my favorite Scrapbooking site 2 Peas in a Bucket
The Chicks are #1- Woot Woot!
I posted one of our 2 Page a Week Layouts yesterday (the first one shown in the red/black and tan) and it was in their gallery as
#1 Favorite by Views
#1 Favorite by Bookmarks
#1 Favorite by "Likes"
Here is the link to the layout in their gallery- The site is one of my favorites and it is such a fantastic resource for paper fans like us, plus they have great message boards if you ever have a problem you are trying to work out, question about products, etc.
Plus our Seahawks won yesterday! I am not going to go so far as to say that it was because Darcie and I rooted for them while we scrapbooked- but it has happened before - and we know they haven't won too many games this year- so I think we definitely brought them good Scrap Yard Chick vibes!
If you sent us email over the Christmas break I was worse than normal at responding. Sorry- I promise to get back to work this week and get everything rolling for our February Workshop, we have some new subscribers this week for our Project a Week and 2 Pages and Week and we have a FREE CROP NEXT WEEKEND.
So much fun, so much to look forward to in a brand new year! Darcie and I are so grateful for the wonderful friends that we have through Scrap Yard Chicks- we thank you all for a super 2010- and are looking forward to an even better 2011!
