One way to motivate yourself to scrap is to get new paper and goodies. And even better is to get new paper and goodies every month delilvered right to your door. If you have been thinking at all about signing up for a kit membership, January is the time to do that. I am running a New Year Subscription Special where if you sign up for a 12-month sugar or spice membership in January, you not only get your 13th kit free at the end of the membership, but you also get to pick out ANY one of the available past kits (including the Dec. sugar kit--the spice was sold out) for free along with your first kit now. If you want to get both fabulous kits each month and sign up for a 12-month combo membership, you get to choose two past kits for free. If you would like to sign up, email me at email@example.com with your choice of sugar, spice or combo membership along with your choice of past kit(s) you would like for free and whether you want to pay monthly by Paypal or credit card. I have some fabulous kits planned for the coming months and with new stuff coming out this January at Winter CHA, there will be even more cool stuff in the kits.
Wishing you all a very Happy New Year and Happy Scrappin'. ~Heather
Here's one from LisaM. I just love how she cut the photo!
And another from Kim (karennie). Don't you just love that rolling pin in the center?
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I am looking forward to more great layouts in the new year!

take a 12x12 piece of card stock and cut 2 inches off one side so the paper measures 10 x 12 (keep the strip)
turn it so the paper is the 12 x 10
cut it in half at 6 inch mark and you now have two cards
it will now measure 6 x 10
fold in half and you will have a 6x5 card
take the strip and cut it every 4 inches (4 & 8) so you will have 3 pieces that measure 4x2
score at 2inch and you have fabulous little tags for your gifts
another easy trick is to buy patterned paper that you can cut images out of....like I did in mine using Graphic 45.
sometimes a little glitter is all a sticker of tag from a collection is all you need.....just add a little sparkle to them your card is ready to go!
Don't forget about your ribbon or lace....they may just add that little extra your card needs....
I hope you enjoyed my post and I can't wait to see your cards!

Start with cutting off all the 1/4" strips from the pattern papers (I decided to do them all at once so I could save them all).
Cut the strips into 3" pieces and punch a circle from some scrap paper (this will be used as the base). This produced an approx. 3" flower. Not all the strips were the exact size so it gave it a less uniform look. You could make the strips whatever size you want your flower to be.
Start adhering the strips on the circle base forming into a flower-type shape. You can layer as many as you want. The middle where they all intersect gets a little thick if you use too many.
Punch a hole in the center with a Crop-A-Dile and insert a big brad (punching the hole takes down some of the depth in the center). Crumple your flower and ink a bit on the edges if desired. I decided to add another cricle cut from the Restoration papers to the flower before the brad for a layered look.
Now adhere to your project.

I thought I better get in on the bandwagon and hold a Black Friday Sale!!! I have lots of leftover kits from the past year, and I'm clearing them out to make room for a new year of fabulous kits. Check them out in the store and snatch up some great kits at a fantastic price. Currently in the store you can only pay by Paypal, but if you would like to use a credit card, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the kits you would like and we can make arrangments. There are only a few of each kit left, so if there is one you see that you would like, you should grab it quickly. Last time, I did a sale like this, many of them were sold out within a few days.

First, there is this one by Lisa (sharpie) that I think is darling. I don't normally like diecut things like the scissors on this layout, but these were perfect and love how she added the envelope of hair in the little cluster.
Finally, I picked this one by former DT member, Lisa (pictures2pages). And it's as if she's still on the design team because this is a perfect example using the current sugar kit with the Crate Paper Restoration line. This layout couldn't be more fabulous and what adorable photos.
I hope you all had a great time with the Blog Hop Crop. The design team really enjoyed your comments and hope you all found some inspiration from our favorite things and little bits of info on us. The winner of the Blog Hop was one of my Member Monday picks:
Lisa (aka sharpie)!!!
So congrats Lisa on winning one of Scrapdango's kit. We will be taking a break from a big event for December since we know that you'll all be very busy during the month but will be back in January with another great event and chance to win a kit. Of course, we'll still be doing our regular stuff on the forums, so there will still be plenty of motivation and inspiration.
Hope you all have a fabulous Thanksgiving if you're in the U.S. and celebrating that this week. Many blessings to you all.

Now how this is going to work is that you need to follow the order of the blogs of each DT member given below. At each blog you will find a list of that designers favorite scrappy things and a few fun facts about them as well. Your challenge is to use 5 of those scrappy things in your layout and incorporate 2 of the fun facts as well. You get 1 draw for using the 5 favorites and 1 draw for using the fun facts. If you do this for everyone's blog...that is a total of 12 draws!
Once you have completed the challenges, you can provide a link to your project by posting a comment here and/or posting it in the Scrapdango forum. All projects are due by midnight est on Friday, November 19th.
You can earn extra draws by:
1. Posting comments on all 6 DT blogs.
2. Inviting a friend that actively participates in the hop (they should leave a comment saying who invited them)
3. Posting on the Scrapdango forum something you learned about each DT member from their blog.
