The book’s heroine, Carmela Bertrand, is the owner of a scrapbook store with a habit of tripping over over bodies – and then solving their murders. The French Quarter setting is spooky, and full of style (and unique characters).

Gossamer GhostIn Gossamer Ghost, which is the thirteenth book in the bestselling Scrapbooking Mysteries series, Carmela discovers the dead body of the owner of a neighboring antiques shop.

Giveaway | Spellbinders Nestabilities

It’s time for another anniversary giveaway for Scrapbook Update’s readers!

This time the giveaway is a set of Spellbinders Nestabilities, the small Classic Squares set that cuts and embosses.

Spellbinders NestabilitiesYou might be thinking, “why would I want a square die cutting set when I can cut squares with my paper trimmer?” There’s a couple of reasons that die cutting squares has advantages.

Happy Birthday to Scrapbook Update! [Giveaway]

It’s hard to believe, but earlier this week, Scrapbook Update passed the 10th anniversary of its existence on the internet!

Over the years the website – and the industry it serves – has gone through a lot of changes (even a name change) but some things have never changed: the loyalty of our readers and the passion I feel for papercrafting.

To celebrate, over the next few days we’re going to be running a few giveaways on the website to share a few of my current favorite items with you.

We’re starting off with a new discovery from the CHA PaperArts show in Atlanta in July. While there, I met some lovely ladies at a brand new stamp company called Pink & Main.

Pink & Main’s stamps are definitely targeted at card makers (although many could be useful for other projects as well) and have a very clean, simple and graphic/modern signature style. I fell in love immediately! Since the company was one of the participants in the Open Market event in Atlanta, I was able to bring some product home to try (and share with readers).

Here’s a look at some of what they were showing in Atlanta:
