Sponsor - Old Favourites

Friday, August 13, 2010

Here is a little about Sam and her store

My grandmother has always fostered my love of craft. No matter what project I would dream up she always had an endless array of tidbits to use. You never knew what treasures could be unearthed.

In an age where everything is mass produced nothing compares to the 'Old Favourites' of yesteryear.

We specialise in creating themed collections full of vintage products and also stock a variety of unique embellishments. New themed collections are being added every week and if you can't find one to suit we are happy to create one for you. I love adding pieces of nostalgic flair to my scrapbook pages and want to share with you the 'Old Favourites' of the past for your craft projects of the future.

Pop over and check out the lovely pieces Sam has put together.

Meet our August Guest Designer...

Wednesday, August 4, 2010

Samantha Hauzer.  I've personally been stalking Sam's blog for a while and always been amazed at how gorgeous her layouts are.  This gal has some talent!! I'm so pleased to have her with us as Guest Designer as well as a Sponsor!! 

Sam owns and runs Purple Pumpkin Crafts and has generously donated a wonderful prize for us this month!

Here is a little about Sam and her wonderful layout for the August Sketch Challenge.

I'm a single mum of two little rascals. Jack is 9 and Emily is 7. Scrapping is definitely my sanity, and 'me' time, and is a huge part of my life these days. I teach classes at two of my local shops, and have just started a little business of selling handmade embellishments. I discovered scrapping 6 years ago and I still obsessed with it!

I don't really know that I have an actual style, or if I do, I don't know what it would be called. I do like lots of layers, and I love to make my own embellishments. And I love to cut bits and pieces out of the papers too.

My favourite product would have to be patterned paper, as you can do just about everything with it. I ddefinitely take inspiration from it. As soon as I see papers that I love, my mind starts ticking over with ideas, and I usually make my layouts and then find photos to match it. Sometimes I'll even do a layout, and then go and take photos to go on it if I don't have any photos that suit it.

I love to scrap in a 12 x 12 size. It's definitely my comfort zone, although I have done a few layouts in 8.5 x 11 and 6 x 12 too.
