Noteworthy | 5.25.2012

Welcome to a holiday weekend edition of Noteworthy! This week I’ve got some new collections, a big sale, some eye candy, and some food for thought to share with you. That’s a lot to cover, so let’s get started!

So Happy Together is a full collection designed by Deena Rutter, with 12 double-sided patterned papers, 3 double-sided solid papers, and two sheets of stickers. It is also available in a 6×6 paper pad.

Online and Offline Scrapbookers

When I started in the industry, nothing that I did related to scrapbooking was online. I shopped in my local scrapbook store (I worked there and got a great discount). I only scrapped with paper, not digitally. I did not visit message boards or galleries, and as a very busy graduate student, I wondered who had time to do all of that anyway. I secretly judged those who carried on conversations offline about stuff they read on their favorite message board.

Today, I still rarely visit message boards. I have always found them overwhelming, and still just can’t get over that feeling. But I no longer judge those who do use them.

These are absolutely fabulous!!!

The winner of package #2 is Lynnscraps, who posted:

I love the quotes on these cute stamps. I am always looking for quotes like these, which are perfect for me.

The winner of package #3 is Ann, who posted:

I like the idea of the complete multimedia package. For me, I would consider it a class and book purchase. Being able to refer to the “class” at anytime, would be great. So many times I come home from a class with samples and directions, only to forget exactly how we did something 6 months later.

Congratulations to all the winners, and thanks to our sponsor Stampavie for sharing their products with our readers for the prizes! Winners, you will get an email in a moment with instructions on collecting your prize! Thanks for reading Scrapbook Update!
