Two Blog Trains going on right now!

This first one is super sweet...litterally! The kit is called Sugar Shock and oh so cute!! It's Sugar Hill Co.'s first blog train. Don't forget to leave some comment love for them!

The second is the Creative Sweeties annual blog train. Their blog train is a little different then most. Instead of a matching kit that each blogger contributes too, this one is made up of all random pieces. Each blogger makes something for us out of their favorite kit

*A blog train is where a group of bloggers get together and provide links to each other's blog where they each post on a common theme. For these blog trains, digital scrapbook designers have gotten together and created digital scrapbooking pieces (papers, embellishments, alphabets, etc.) for us to download from them for free. The idea is to promote each other's blogs and also give us something nice in return.

Super Cute and CHEAP Way to Display/Store Earings!

I'm sending you over to Kevin & Amanda's Blog again for another cute tutorial! If you have dangle earrings, you HAVE to see this!

Great Way to Use Up Scrapbooking Scraps

Got paper scraps, a little bit of this, and  a little bit of that left over from your paper crafts??! Check this out! A little bit grungy and whole lotta cute! And FREE!!!

Grosgrain Blog

A GREAT way to save money, on clothing, is to make them yourself. Don't have the skills (or the time)?? Here's a even better way to save money! Buy clothes at a thrift store (read CHEAP) and alter them to fit you (and your style). If this sounds interesting to you, you have got to go check out Thrift Store Thursdays at the Grosgrain blog! While you're at it, go check out her video tutorials. It will help you learn a few sewing techniques. Be sure to check out her gallery of clothing she's sewn herself before you go. She's an awesome seamstress! Beautiful work. And the pictures are AMAZING!!!

Check The Blog

If you're interested in the digital Scrapbook stuff I posted about in the last post, then be sure to check the blog for updates to that post. I will add additional sites when I find them. I have already added another one today. Happy Scrapping!

I have updated the look of the blog yet again (Yes, I have trouble making decisions! he he). I think I have finally found what I want to use. It is actually a blend of two layouts. Just the perfect amount of chaos & cuteness! I hope you like it!

Free Digital Scrapbooking Supplies

I have SO much to tell you guys! Seriously, I have ideas running through my head all day to write, but when I finally get to sit down and write them, I can't remember what they are!

Okay, first of all, I've found a LOT of digital scrapbooking stuff lately for FREE & really cheap (just price, NOT quality!)!!! And I found a free editing software that is pretty good. Not to say that one of the more popular softwares that you pay for wouldn't be better, but for free, it's pretty stinkin' good! The software is paint.net.

Now, to the scrapbook stuff sites...
Free Font Sites:
**Bonus Tip: At both of the Kevin and Amanda pages, along with the sugar frog fonts and abecedarienne pages, there is a button for downloading all the fonts at once. HUGE time saver!!!**

If you know of any I haven't added, PLEASE leave the link in a comment! Everyone loves free!

Ok, that's all for today. Hopefully I can get on some more soon and write some more! Have a great day!
