Hello there! Michelle with another rambling Scrap FX post. This time it’s all about errors. We all make them. I’m known to repeat mine. The question is, how do you move past the self kicking stage ? There are many answers. Meditation and yoga, tantrum throwing, swigging of alcoholic drinks and perhaps- perfecting your craft so that […]

Happy holidays with Scrap FX

Hello! Michelle here with 2 holiday themed scrapbook pages. Scrap FX has the coolest Christmas chipboard designs. For me it’s more about editing down what I want on the page. I have proudly displayed some truly confusing Christmas themed monstrosities in my three years scrapping. But not THIS year! This year it’s going to be […]

Hello from soggy but still standing Brooklyn, NY Scrap FX readers! I want to say something deep and insightful about Hurricane Sandy but frankly nothing will do justice to the people who lost loved ones or who’s homes were destroyed.

Hello there! Today I want to share two cards I made for World Card Making Day using my favorite Scrap FX product: Lanky Alphas! (Item number 2007012) I have a difficult time with alphabet sets. I find they are either too big and take over the page (especially if I use smaller photos); or too […]

Hello! Michelle here! I have ALL this glitter left over from my last couple of projects. What’s a girl to do? Normally the glitter pots would have gone back into the vault (a huge box under my desk where the occasional spider likes to hang out- it’s a DISCO spider). But I decided to I […]

I usually fight those moments of with some Pinterest surfing but that tends to make things worst because I see all these amazing pages other people are producing and can’t understand why mine keeps falling part. Well there’s one […]
