Yup, this post is gonna be full of links, places that I love and thought I would share with you all!

First, the new Spring issue of Scrapstreet is out. I have an “Inspiration Way” article in there, titled “Quote me” (which might feature some of my dear blog readers works… {smile})

This also means that there is a new call for submissions. For our next issue I am looking for…

Chevron Chic. Draw your inspi­ra­tion from the image below and let your cre­ativ­ity flow! Think out of the box and make a lay­out of any size, card, or altered item. Please include a line in your sub­mis­sion telling us how this image inspired you.

Deadline is midnight May 19th for all calls.

Please send your work to

Please send a separate email for each submission you would like to be considered for publication. Please keep the image size around 600 x 600 pixels. Thank you!

There are a whole lot of other calls too, which you can find here. Good luck!

Second, I wanted to share the Creative team call open at Jessica Sprague’s website. If you are digital scrapbooker, this is an amazing, truly amazing place to be at. More details here.


Third, I cannot believe I have never mentioned these amazing women on blog yet. My fellow Craft Experts from the Fiskars team. All of them create such beautiful projects, I am sure you will be inspired! (I still kinda can’t believe I am on their team!)

Fourth, these are some of the challenge sites I love to visit. Nothing like a good challenge to get your craft going!

Some the new blogs I am following and loving! (i had to clean out my reader, and purge out tons of blogs, but I felt bad two days later, and added some new ones)

A quilt is nice
A beautiful mess blog
Doublestick Heaven
GoodBye City Life
The Play Date Cafe

 And lastly, but most importantly, here is a the hashtag that my friend Nirupama and I came up with.

We both usually stay up late at night to scrap and tweet. So we created a hashtag #twittercrop for all you to join us in this online crop.

What could be more fun than scrapbooking? Why, scrapbooking with friends!!

Last night, was our first online scrapbooking tweet crop, I didnt scrap much, coz the baby didnt sleep till really really really late (atleast her ear infection has healed!) but it was SO much fun to hang out with other people, seeing what they were scrapping and chatting!!

Thank you @LiveTeachCreate  @soaphousemama  @johannahb_08  @2littlezsandme  @nirupama01  @SmithaKatti for coming to our crop! I am sure we will be planning another one soon– as soon as we find some time 🙂

So there, I just jammed your day with possibilites 🙂

Have fun!

PS: Link me up with your favorite places to go! I will stop by today.

PPS: The giveaway is still open. Click here for more info!
