Fresh Look, Classic Style

by Cassandra Cooper on Monday, June 22, 2009; 1:59 PM

We are so excited to open our doors to the SHABBY GREEN DOOR, a new division of DAISY BUCKET DESIGNS and the debut of our first collection, FARMERS MARKET.

A few months ago, I was inspired by an artist that shared her journey of moving and how that inspired her to recreate a new look and feel for her home. She brought along many of her favorite treasures but chose to repurpose items to fit into their new home. Changing color pallets, putting furniture pieces in rooms they had never been in, and choosing new artwork. She essentially decided to recreate a new space that reflected where they were in their lives now.

As our lives change from season to season, so do we. We grow and become more than we were yesterday. SHABBY GREEN DOOR is that expression of where we are going creatively. Looking at the world around us and seeing things a bit different. Looking for fresh looks with classic style. We hope you will walk through our door and join us as we unlock the door to CREATIVITY and find new inspiration!

Wordle is GREAT for Scrapbooking!

Want to try something new to add to your pages? Try Wordle! Give it a shot and play around a bit. IF you want some of your words to be bigger than others, try typing that word more than a few times. The more times you type the word, the bigger it gets. Here's an example:

COSTCO & SAM's Has Scrap Supplies!

Thanks to Imagine That (Everything Cricut), I can share this great news with you!

The best selection is online. In the store, I remember never knowing what Costco was going to have.

Click HERE for Costco's scrapbooking section. They've got a lot of Karen Foster & Heidi Swapp--and a section of Provo Craft items, although I thought they were just average prices.

Click HERE for Sam's Club's scrapbooking section, including Copic Markers at a good price (as I understand, I'm still Copically challenged at this point) and Nestabilities sets of 4 for $54 including shipping.

Heidi Grace Announces a New Business

Nancy Nally reported on Scrapbook Update the following information on 6/9/09.

Heidi Grace Kress (better known to most scrapbookers as just “Heidi Grace”) announced recently that she is starting a new business since Fiskars discontinued her consumable product line.

Kress’s company Heidi Grace Designs was bought by Fiskars in late 2005. In January 2009, Fiskars announced that they were discontinuing all consumable products. This left Kress, who designed scrapbook paper and embellishments, with nothing to design for the Fiskars line bearing her name.

According to her blog, Kress has opened a new company called “clever“. The company will produce and sell items not covered by her non-compete clause in her Fiskars contract, primarily children’s clothing, children’s decor and one-of-a-kind art pieces. Kress has opened a boutique in her hometown to sell the items, and plans an Etsy store as well. Some items will be made available for wholesale.

Basic Grey Contest

This came straight from Have Your Way With Paper from Jenny who got this from Basic Grey's newsletter.

The new newsletter not only shows some of the new product they've released (from Take Notes, Woolies, Pops and more) but it also announces a brand new contest - an ANNIVERSARY contest! Can you believe it? Basic Grey is almost FIVE YEARS OLD! Seriously! So here are the details:

They’re looking for two winners in their 5th Anniversary Contest (one layout winner, one card winner). Their layout category winner will receive a collection pack and the card category winner will receive a 6x6 paper pad, of either Lemonade or June Bug. The contest starts June 5th and ends June 17th. Join the celebration and upload your entry in their gallery using the title “Anniversary Card” or “Anniversary Layout.” The two lucky winners will appear in their July issue!

So get to posting those layouts and cards, everyone! We look forward to seeing your best stuff!

Also, Have Your Way With Paper will also be posting these layouts on their message board. So, pop in and see what our little family is all about!!
