QuicKutz Release is HERE! and so are the EPICS!

From QuicKutz:  Take advantage of your Epics, QuicKutz lovers! This release will have you creating projects of epic proportions with our new large-format Cookie Cutter dies. We’ve heard your requests for more mini albums, so we’ve provided you with a clever composition notebook and set of nesting sketchbooks for travel journals, coupon books and more.

Be sure to check out other shapes in this release—triangle pennants, matchbooks, asymmetrical flowers, and nesting rick rack shapes! Try using all of the shapes with felt or fabric, and you’ll really be cutting loose.

These new Cookie Cutter Edges are meant to cut the edge of your A2 size paper, though you can use them for creations of any kind—mountains, waves, grass, teeth, lace, and more. Cut the side of your greeting card or add some flair to your layout with these six-inch long designs.

Our new Cotton Candy 2x2 Alphabet is the first of its kind—a mini script that easily connects to form the most delightful cursive word. Great for adding a journaling element to any layout or card.

The English Rose Grand Complete is not only a font with a smart curl, it contains each lowercase and uppercase letter on the same die! Easy to store. Easy on the eyes.

The Espresso Grand Complete font is reminiscent of our favorites from the past—Inspiration, Journal, and Sophie. This whimsical, curly design was the number one pick of our focus group. Especially fun for monogramming. Also available with uppercase and lowercase letter sets on each die.

FYI: there are embossing folders that are also a part of this collection...but...they have NOT been released by QuicKutz yet. They are on order and expected sometime in the near future.

Book Signing with Candice Ransom!

We are very excited to announce that Candice Ransom, local author and paper crafter, has a new release "Scrapbooking Just for You!" by Sterling Publishers.

She will be at Scrapdoodles on Saturday, May 1, at 11:00 am for a book signing!

This book is perfect for the young scrapbooker. "Birthday parties, graduations, vacations, family time, and fun days with friends: you'll want to remember every moment! Now you can, with this cool collection of irresistible and very doable scrapbooking ideas that will inspire you to make beautiful, personal, keep-them-forever memory albums. ...With its playful, appealing, and easy-to-follow design, Scrapbooking Just for You! will become the creative girl's go-to guide!

Candice Ransom is the author of more than one hundred children's books-picture books, chapter books, easy readers, mid-grade novels, biographies, nonfiction, even board books. She also teaches writing for children in Hollins University's summer MA/MFA program.

We live in Fredericksburg, Virginia, "America's Most Historic City." By "we," I mean Candice, her husband Frank, yours truly, Xenia, the grumpiest, oldest cat in the world, and Persnickety, the snooty calico who turns her nose up at caviar. Despite my devastating good looks and charming personality, I am only in ten of Candice's books (the whole Time Spies series, but still, I should be in more). For more on Candice, click

Fun with Cosmo Cricket

Cosmo Cricket has introduced several fun new lines now available in the store. The colors are bright and the themes and patterns are just plain FUN! I picked up some double sided papers and the chipboard sheet for their "Garden Variety" line last week and have had a blast playing with combining the coordinating patterned paper and oh-so-cute chipboard pieces. The best part about the chipboard (besides the adorable faces on the veggies and the cute yellow chicks) is that it's completely self-adhesive! Here are 3 layouts I completed.

Check out the chipboard pea pod border and the cute "e-i-e-i-o" border. Cute!

To get the scalloped edge, I used my circle punch to punch out the starbursts from patterned paper and adhered them behind the border. Hope you are inspired to try out the new patterns from Cosmo Cricket!
