Scrapbooking, cardmaking and blogs

Happy Monday.

And a happy Monday it is – it is a mindless TV night.  Ah, yes.  Gotta love it.  Gilles on Dancing with the Stars?  Ahhh.  And 30 delightful dishes of bachelors on the Bachlorette?  Perfect. :)

(Quickly, remember that you still have time to enter to win a ton of brads HERE. :)

Just wanted to share some projects.  These are ones I did long ago for the Hero 2009 Catalog.  (Again, forgive me if I already shared them.  I have a new system to prevent that in the future – thanks Jayne!)

These are actually matching pages and cards…

Here is a page and a few cards I did using some incredible photos from Erin Cobb.  I tell ya, she has the most beautiful family.  She makes cute kids. :)

I also wanted to ask you all about some of your favorite manufacturer blogs.  I am new to checking these out.  But thanks to my very-late-but-oh-so-happy discovery of Google Reader, I am looking for ones to visit.  I am sure there are a lot of great ones out there.  Here are some of my faves:

I am sure I am missing a lot!  Please link me to any good ones you know of.  I will add my favorites here.

OK… off to focus on 30 bachelors.  They have only shown one so far.  And, so far, so good. :)   Night!

    Those cards and pages are all so awesome. You are so right about Erin Cobb’s kiddos – just gorgeous!
    Another manufacturer’s blog I’ve found inspiring is the Maya Road Design team blog http://mayaroad.typepad.com/dt/
    Lots of fun ideas for scrapbooking & card making & home decor!

    I love the American Crafts blog, too! I have been trying to check theirs and Hero Arts every day lately. SO much inspiration!!! I will have to sit and go through the rest of the links you posted also.

    Jennifer, Thanks for all the places to check out. I visit some of the spots you mentioned about twice a week. Hero Arts’ blog I read every morning because it is so inspiring. I read the Flourishes Newsletter and blog. (flourishesnewsletter.blogspot.com) Don’t know how to direct you to their blog though. Sorry. Hope GIles wins, too. Haven’t decided about The Bachelorette. So discouraging after last season. At least Melissa has made a name for herself.

    I have way too many blogs in my google reader – here are some of my faves:

    http://jillibeansoup.typepad.com/ – lovin’ their products, esp. their kraft stuff.

    http://scrapbookandcardstodaymag.typepad.com/ – OK, so not a mfr., but lots of great designers represented here.

    http://cathyzielske.typepad.com/my_weblog/ – again, not a mfr., but she has such witty posts, and an eye for good design

  6. you’re so good for my ego. :)

    did you know you can put your favorite etsy store’s rss feeds in google reader so that you know when they put new things in? oh yes you can!

  12. Beautiful projects & great links! This post was chosen as the most scraptagious link on http://scraptagious.com yesterday! Congrats!

  13. Thanks so much for the link to Google Reader! I have never heard of it, but I can’t wait to set it up! I tend to always forget whose blog I’m caught up on and whose I’ve missed!

    I’m a big fan of Basic Grey [ http://www.basicgrey.com/index.php?src=gendocs&link=home_page&category=Main ] – while there isn’t a blog on their main site, they do have the option of signing up for their newsletter [which is always jam-packed full of awesome stuff...and soon-to-be released products] as well as their gallery with tons of ideas and inspiration for each of their lines, along with the ability to submit your own work!

    I agree with Cynthia about Cathy Zielske’s blog…she rocks.

    Once again, not really a blog, but a site I go to again and again: http://doodlebugdesign.homestead.com/home/index.html

    Can’t wait to see what else you link us to! Thanks so much!
