Ikea Expedit Being Discontinued

expedit-shelving-unit

Note to anyone with a half-finished scrap room of Ikea Expedit products: Ikea has confirmed to various media outlets that it is clearing out the popular shelving system.

Ikea Expedit shelving, which is popular among many scrapbookers for storage of paper and other items, has apparently moved to “get it while it lasts” status. In addition to its popularity with scrapbookers, the news of Expedit’s demise has sent panic through record collectors, with whom Expedit has a devoted following. Continue Reading →

Creativeworld 2014 | A Tour of Messe Frankfurt

Last month, for the first time, I traveled to Frankfurt, Germany to attend the annual Creativeworld show (and its sister shows, Paperworld and Christmasworld).

The shows are put on and hosted by Messe Frankfurt, the massive exhibition center in Frankfurt that also plays host to events such as the Frankfurt auto show, the world’s largest auto show. Before you can begin to really absorb the show itself, it’s necessary to orient yourself to the venue. And the Messe (as it is called in brief) is absolutely massive. It’s so large I can’t even compare it in size to any convention center that I’ve ever been in here in the U.S. A better comparison would be that the Messe is the size of a small college or corporate campus – a series of almost a dozen buildings connected by aerial walkways and a network of roads.

This road runs the length of the center of the Messe “campus” and is served by a shuttle bus service that allows attendees to move between buildings without walking huge distances in the skyways.

Love Cards with Fancy Pants Designs!

I had some card making fun recently with Fancy Pants’ “Be Loved” collection. This collection encompasses some of my favorite things creatively right now: tags, pink, blue, and gray (to name a few). And like it’s name suggests, it’s perfect for making love cards for your favorite person (and not just on Valentine’s Day!)

Using tags to make cards is one of my favorite shortcuts, and “Be Loved” has great tag sets with it that are perfect for cards. I couldn’t resist!
