Wishing all my readers a very happy (inter)National Scrapbooking Day! It’s nearly over here in Australia, but I know the excitement will just be starting over in the US.

All Things Scrapbooking’s new site has had it’s official launch today …very exciting!

I hope to be back here later today/tomorrow with a site launch and NSD gift freebie for you all, but it might be another day or so on the way after all the work putting the new site up today.

 Have a great day, and if you find any fantastic bargains, leave a comment for us all so we can share in the sales.

Introducing myself …

Filed under: Generally Speaking — Lucie @ 9:01 pm

Hi everyone, both new and old visitors!

My name is Lucie, and I am the new owner of All Things Scrapbooking. I became the owner a couple of months ago, and have been working hard behind the scenes on a brand new site (with a few surprises) and am just about ready to launch, hopefully in time for National Scrapbooking Day!

 A bit about me, I’ve been a web designer for many years and just love scrapbooking. I am also starting to do digi scrap designing, and will have some freebies very soon, and so don’t forget to check back regularly.

I hope to get this site and blog back up and running again, and value your input and so if you have something you’d like to comment on or share, you are more than welcome. With the new site will come the ability to submit your own articles, stories, ideas and layouts, and I’m looking forward to seeing everyone’s wonderful work.

If you’d like to see anything in particular on this site, please leave me a comment and I’ll do my best to make it happen.

 Thank you again and see you soon!

10. Dancing or playing sports.  Danicng definitely, can’t wait until the kids are older so dh and I can have those ballroom lesons.

12. Fruits or vegetables.  Definitely fruit, that’s a total no brainer for me ;)

13. Grey’s Anatomy or House. Oh gawd, I don’t technically watch either but I can’t compare, I chuckle my heart out at House, gee is a horrid person at times but oh so funny and then Grey’s well that’s a superb show.

Getting Crafty With Fabric

Filed under: Generally Speaking,Getting Creative,Off The Page,Other Stuff — Lucie @ 10:28 am

Wow I know you can do so many wonderful things with paper but have you checked out Sarah from Quilt Fabric Delights Blog, she is one Crafty Mumma.

I am yet to venture out into the world of fabric, I haven’t even used it in any of my layouts yet but never say never. My backpack.jpgfirst experiences with sewing weren’t the greatest. Remember the old home ec room and having to make a pencil case and other little nic nacs which were in anticipation of the big one…the big end of year creation. I chose a skirt, a full length skirt at that, with buttons right down the front and a pleated waist area. It seemed to take a lifetime to finish, which is why I think I was completely turned off by sewing ;) however I did wear that skirt for quite awhile so it can’t of been that bad! :) :)

But you really need to have a look at some of the wonderful things that Sarah has done with fabric. I’ve borrowed one of her images just to show you but you really need to go take a look for yourself.

How About A New Bag For That Crop Night

Filed under: Generally Speaking,Other Stuff — Lucie @ 9:47 pm

lulu bag.jpgOk it’s not technically a scrapping bag but it is gorgeous all the same and would certainly be big enough to fit quite of bit the ‘stuff’ we seem to lug with us to crop nights. ;) I actually think that it is a beach bag but shhhhh don’t tell anyone and they’ll never know.

I have to thank the lovely Anne of Diva Days for sharing this bag on her blog as I would probably have never found it otherwise and if you want to take a closer look it can be found at Sweet Dare.
