Meet Our New Guest Designers!!

A few weeks ago, we announced that we were looking for three talented people to be guest designers for the store.  We will feature their work on our website, blog and in the store for the next six months.  We were thrilled to see how many people brought in their projects.  There are so many talented artists out there.  I was blown away!  It was so hard to choose only three, and we really wish we could have picked a few more.  Thanks so much for all that entered and we really hope you try again at a later date. All projects dropped off may be picked up any time during business hours.  Thanks again!

Congratulations to our the following people for being the first guest designers of The Scrapbook Store!!
(you may see their entries here on our website)



Hi, my name is Kelly Swosinski and I live in Oak Creek, WI with my dog Toby. I've been scrapbooking for about 10 years now, back when my supplies consisted of construction paper and Sandylion stickers (you know the ones).  Since then I'd call my style ever changing. I love trying new techniques, tools, and product to enhance my pages.  Outside of scrapbooking I enjoy photography, the outdoors, and all of Wisconsin's sports teams (Brewers, Packers, Badgers).  I look forward to be able to share my work with The Scrapbook Store, and am so grateful for the opportunity.

I am a SAHM of 4 year old twin girls- so I have plenty to scrapbook.  I started off my “hobby” making cards.  A friend of mine encouraged me to do an 8x8 scrapbook of a family trip we took a couple of years ago.  I really enjoyed the process and thought I would dive into doing a 12x12 scrapbook for each of my girls.  It has been a fun journey learning about new techniques, products and all the creative projects that are out there.  I am always pushing myself to learn more.  I am so excited to have this opportunity to share my ideas with others.  Thank you Beth and Angie!

I live in Kenosha with my wonderful husband Aaron and two children, Ella (3) and Evan (4 months). 
I am a part-time music teacher and get to stay home with my kids the rest of the time.   My favorite pastimes are traveling, singing and being crafty!  I have loved crafts for as long as I can remember (thanks Mom!) and now devote most of my crafty time to scrapbooking.  I have been blessed to have my work featured in BHG Scrapbooks Etc., Scrapbook Trends, Cards, and Handmade magazines.  I am so honored and excited to be part of The Scrapbook Store's Design Team!

Crate Paper, Tim Holtz, WeR, Best, etc..............

The new Crate Paper lines just came in today, and they are adorable.  Each line has many embellishments, such as chipboard, diecut stickers, brads, and alphas!!!  Take a look!

This is a line called Retro Glam by WeR Memory Keepers.  This is a new line to us, but has been around awhile.  We had to get it because it's very glitzy, and you know how we LOVE glitz!!
Check out these chunky glitter papers!!!!
More glitter paper by Best Creations.  We have many new collections, but here are just a couple.  The first is a ton of St. Pat's paper.  And below is some dotted glitter paper.  It looks much better in person!!

A few new lines from My Minds Eye!!

Tons of new flowers, with more on the way!!

And the new Tim Holtz Crowded Attic paper is here!!!  We sell it by the sheet so it's more affordable than buying the whole stack!
And finally...the rosette dies are back in stock!  If you have not received a call and placed one of these awesome dies on hold, give us a call while they're still in stock!!!
