Susie used a digital die cut from the Silhouette Online Store called “Thank You Card” by Lori Whitlock. Paired with a patterned paper from Echo Park’s “For the Record 2″ collection, also designed by Lori, the die makes quite a statement! [Read more...]
We finish off today with Card Annex team designer Yana Smakula. She brings you this hello that is full of sunshine (something we haven’t seen all week here in the so-called “sunshine state”) with help from some fabulous Pebbles products!
I fell in love with the Pebbles Basics Pads the moment I saw them, and patterns like this yellow chevron are the reason why! They are so quick and easy – just grab a sheet and fold it to make a card! [Read more...]
Today, we’re making a big announcement for National Scrapbook Day!
Please welcome to Scrapbook Update the Card Annex design team! The Card Annex team was founded late last year as part of another Nally Studios property, and is now taking up permanent residence at Scrapbook Update to strengthen our creative offerings here.
Our ten card designers will be bringing you content several times per week to highlight products and teach techniques. Today, you’ll be getting their first three posts for Scrapbook Update, but if you would like to see more, you can visit the Card Annex archives on our site.
First up today, Scrapbook Update’s Card Annex team designer Corri Garza is bringing us a card featuring the products of designer Lori Whitlock, but from two different companies!
The beautiful pink papers on this card are from the Valentine’s Day collection called “Love Story” that Lori designed for Echo Park Paper Company. Who said that you have to put away your seasonal products when the season is over? Lori’s beautiful feminine pink designs in “Love Story” are perfect for Mother’s Day, and would also do well for other occasions like birthdays and baby girls.

Major scrapbook retail chain Archiver’s filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Monday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Minnesota.
The Archiver’s board authorized the bankruptcy filing on April 25th via a written directive. In court filings, the retailer indicates that it intends to continue operating. The initial petition estimates the company has between $10-$50 million in assets, and $1-$10 million in liabilities, and indicates that the company believes there will be at least some funds available for distribution to unsecured creditors.
As a retailer, it’s not surprising that a large portion of the company’s top 20 unsecured creditors are product wholesalers. The largest unsecured creditor is EK Success, who is owed over $250,000. Also appearing on the top 20 creditors list are American Crafts, 3L, We R Memory Keepers, My Mind’s Eye, Bazzill, Love To Scrap, Doodlebug, BoBunny, Ranger, Silhouette, Pioneer, Pink Paislee, Ellison, and Queen & Company, who are owed between $55,000 and $200,000 each. The Archiver’s bankruptcy is a double hit for 3L, who was already listed as one of the top creditors in the Creative Memories bankruptcy a few weeks ago.
A meeting of creditors is scheduled for May 30th at the US Courthouse in Minneapolis. Proof of claims from creditors are due to the court by August 28th, an important deadline since the petition estimates that there will be funds to disperse to the creditors who submit claims. [Read more...]
