FabFriday Facebook Shout!

Hi!

Every Friday we at FabScraps celebrate FabFriday with all of you by posting a video, a featured project etc and of course we mention 3 Facebook fan names who get an awesome thank you gift from us PROVIDED they see their name in the video and then SHOUT their name on our Facebook wall so we know that we need to send them an awesome thank you gift!

Facebook fan names are chosen randomly with no particular preference, however there is a way for your name to be chosen ;-)


It's that simple!

Look forward to seeing you make some noise ;-)

FabScraps Die Cuts ~

Good Morning from FabScraps HQ on this fabulous Tuesday morning x

FabScraps is a leading die cut manufacturer (if I don't say so myself LOL) where die cuts are designed and cut in house to compliment our fabulous collections (if I don't say so myself ...again ;-)

The thing is that a lot of people don't know what to do with die cuts and the potential they have with them on their scrapping and paper craft projects.

Thanks to our in house Designer, Jamie (blog: http://jamieshappyscrapping.blogspot.com/ ), we have some awesome tutorials to show you just this!

FabScraps C48 Rustic Collection

How gorgeous is this collection?














With Love From FabScraps xxx

Limor & Lisa ...FINALLY!

Finally, here are the last two Fabulicious DT Members for 2012 / 2013 that I get to brag about, Limor Webber (Canada) and Lisa Gregory (USA).  I am not going to run the risk of saying we saved the best for last because every single one of our Fabulicious DT are wonderfully talented and extremely creative and we are excited every day when we get emails from them with their latest creations!

Without further a due...Limor Webber!

Hi my name is Limor and I am a mother of two beautiful girls, Hannah 7 and Ava 4,as well as I am married to my wonderful husband Curtis.

I guess you could say I am addicted to scrapbooking and paper crafting! I have been scrapping for over 7 years and I am constantly creating and trying to come up with new and exciting techniques and projects that empower others to release that creativity that is hiding inside of them.  I would have to say that my favorite part about crafting is being able to teach and share with my fellow crafting community.



http://chicscrapbookdesigns.blogspot.ca/2012/05/victoria-collection-birthday-card.html


Lisa Gregory!

I am a Registered nurse by profession. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have 2 grown children. Our son is married, lives nearby, and our daughter is away attending Le Cordon Bleu Academy studying to be a Chef and working at Disney World! 

I have been crafting my whole life, and found scrap booking in 2005 when I was helping my son and girlfriend (now daughter in law) do their senior projects. A scrapbook of their lives. I took one walk down the scrapbook isle at Michaels, and was hooked!  My style is ever changing as I play with new techniques. I can go from soft shabby chic to down and dirty grunge depending on my mood. I am lucky to be able to lock myself away in my studio to create. Scrapbooking is therapy for me.I am honored, proud, lucky and thrilled to be designing for FabScraps. Thank You for the opportunity to showcase your wonderful products!!


Wishing you all a very blessed day, till next time!

Almost Done!

Since I didn't quite make it to work yesterday, decided to take a 'crash' course on the way to work LOL all are fine and back in action today..we have 2 more Fabulicious DT Members to brag about today, Jeaunes Viljoen (South Africa) and Moe Mahoski (USA):-

About Jeaunes:

I am 28 years old and have been married for four years, by the 29th of February this year, to a very loving and supportive husband (especially when it comes to my hobby).  I am an economist by day and a scrapbooker by night.  I am a HUGE animal lover, but more specifically a cat lover.  I have 2 cats named Zorro and Gobbelina, as well as basset named Sherlock.  I find it very relaxing to make layout after layout.  What inspires me the most are probably my photos!!!!!!!!!!  What I scrap on a day will depend on my mood and what I feel like scrapbooking.  It will also depend whether I have bought new paper from my favourite ranges as to what I scrap.  


I am DEFINITELY one of those that firstly, have enough paper at home to open my own shop and secondly, that take pictures to match the paper I have bought.  Overall I am a very heartfelt scrapbooker, and no matter what I put my whole heart into making a layout, whether it is for myself, a commissioned album or as a gift!

About Moe:



I am a HUGE fan of creativity, ALL types !
I’ve been playing with paper, since I was FIVE !!!!
LOL, and that was a VERY long time ago !
Now , my passion is making Albums, Cards, Altering
“things”, and Wall Art, and Home D├ęcor !!!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jvJHWDdFwe4



Bring on “FABULOUS Scraps of paper “ , bling, paint, FLOWERS,
LACE, glue, scissors, stamps, different inks.....
and I am one HAPPY “girl”.... I am TRULY happy when my desk
looks like it just blew up...... and my fingers are all inky !.....sigh....
As ever, Moe Mahoski from the USA

Double Up!

Hi Everyone!

We are in for a 5 day working week!!!  LOL about time these holidays finished up so we can get back into the working routine....they cause way too much chaos!

I have 6 DT Member left to brag about on the blog so am going to do 2 a day starting today with SHONA KEEHN and TRACY WEINZAPFEL.

Once I have bragged enough then it's time to get something else going..wink wink

About Shona Keehn,

I am from British Columbia, Canada. I have 3 children and a wonderful husband of 26 years. He is very supportive with my scrapping addiction.


I have been scrapping for many years but have just found my scrappy style in the last year, Shabby Chic with a bit of vintage, and it is definitely something that I change up lots. I love to try new techniques and make embellishments. One of my favourites is to work with a sketch, either for layouts or cards. I get so much inspiration from everyone in the scrapping world and I hope that you can get some from me.


About Tracy Weinzapfel,


Hi I am Tracy Weinzapfel and am excited to be on the FabScraps Team!  With me, what you see, is what you get....I put it all out there every day. I am the mom of three great kids (14 year old son and boy/girl 10 year old twins). For me, every day is a Nikon Moment. I am happiest behind my camera capturing life's every amazing second. I live life with a creative edge and know that art is my calling.  I am happiest in my art studio creating mixed media projects using all mediums (paper, glue, paint, etc.).  I am proud to have been hired to create albums for movie stars and our very own President of the United States, Barak Obama!  I am most proud to travel and teach workshops and classes sharing my passion.
I try to live life to the fullest every day and for the most part you can catch glimpses of my crazy adventures on my blog: www.tracywburgos.typepad.com .  I never know where life is taking me but one thing I know for sure is I will have my camera in hand to capture all those special memories.

We have such exciting times ahead and are so glad that you are on the journey with us!

Chat soon,
