Design Team Announcement

We have some sad goodbyes at Scrap It With A Song. Lisa and Tina are stepping down and they will definitely be missed!!! They have been great assets to our design team.

What does that mean? We have a new addition to our Design Team. Karen Williams will be a new face on our design team and we are excited to have her. Here is her info:


I am a 36 year old mother of three who has been scrapbooking since the birth of my daughter three and half years ago ( Nancy thinks the half is very important).

Originally from the UK, I am currently living in the Netherlands, hence my new found SAHM status, ( In the UK I was a teacher). I like simple scrapping, half an hour is my average time on a LO, and with three children in the house you
can understand why. I set myself the challenge of making 365 LOs this year, I stopped count in November when I got to 370! I love chocolate, pizza boxes from the postman, day trips to Amsterdam, shoes, crime novels, knitting, CSI on TV ,baking, taking photographs, Strictly Come Dancing/ dancing with the Stars, scrapbooking of course, and the spring, I hate talking about myself, bananas, dentists, taking my children for jabs , having my hair cut, bananas, that I still bite my nails, and my oven. ( the oven is a long story) (yes bananas is in there twice- I really hate bananas - another long story).

Week 37 - Smile

Our sponsor this week is once again the AMAZING The Stamping Boutique. Several members of our design team even got in on the fun and used their images, myself included. I just love their winter line.

I'm Tracey Malnofski, the artist and owner of The Stamping Boutique. My team and I are very happy to sponsor Scrap it Witha Song this week. My store has been open since September 2009. I've worked for InStyleStamps, Squigglefly, and TheDigiShack. I'm a professional artist and an active member of the Artist' Guild in my community. I have quite a busy household with a husband, 3 teenagers, 5 mini-dachshunds and an Appaloosa mare. It's noisy, but I love them all. I'm truly blessed.


"The Stamping Boutique" is dedicated to quality products and original artwork. We not only provide wonderful digital images in our store, but also several lines of red rubber images. Our designers are chosen for their character and personality,as well as, their beautiful designs. We work hard to give you our very best. Thank you so much for having us as your sponsor this week.

Week 35... Just the Two Of Us

Hi all!!! Sorry for the delay in our post!!! Because of the late start, I am extending the deadline until 5pm on Monday, December 20, 2010.

Next week we will not have a challenge BUT (and it's a big BUT) we will have seven days of creativity headed your way. Our design team will feature a sneak peek that leads to a great project they have up on their blog! It will be fun so come back and check it out!!!!!!!!


This week is being sponsored again by the adorable Sew Many Cards!!!


My name is Angela and I own Sew Many Cards. I have a husband, an almost 10year old daughter, a two year old son, and a dog/puppy: Hershey. The images of Sew Many Cards came from a dream that my husband had of a group of animals that were "SEWN Together" with patches and stitching, hence the name, which he also came up with. You will find that every image in the Sew Many Cards collection has patches and stitching, even the ones that are not animals. I love to draw and almost every image is either an inspiration from my family or a request from my great customers and design team, so please ask if you need something specific or would like to request something be made. You can contact me at angela@sewmanycards.com


This weeks song is... Just the Two of Us by Will Smith



Our DT this week would like to welcome our newest member contributing to the fun,






JUST THE WAY YOU ARE Winners will be posted tomorrow!!!!!!!!

Week 34 - Just the Way You Are

This week is starting a little late as it took me a bit longer to nail down some details.  So without further ado, our song this week is Just the Way You Are by the amazing crooner blasting the airwaves this year, Bruno Mars.  It's quite a lovely song...so scroll on down and push play (you know you want to!).

Our sponsor this week is DesignZ by DeDe.  The winner will get their choice of three of her digital scrapbook products. 
Hi there! My name is DeDe Smith and I am a wife, a mom to 2 kids, a book lover, and a digital scrapbook designer! I have a B.A. in Visual Communications (graphic design) and have worked for a couple of crafting magazines, putting their issues together, and have had various other design projects, including illustrating a children's book! But my pure delight is in designing digital scrapbook kits with my unique tearZ and scatterZ creations! I've designed for several stores and love being a part of the digital scrapbook community!

----------------------------------------
Oh her eyes, her eyes
Make the stars look like they're not shining
Her hair, her hair
Falls perfectly without her trying
She's so beautiful and I tell her every day

Yeah I know, I know When I compliment her
She wont believe me And its so, its so
Sad to think she don't see what I see
But every time she asks me do I look okay, I say

When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing, Just the way you are
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you're amazing, Just the way you are

Her lips, her lips
I could kiss them all day if she'd let me
Her laugh, her laugh
She hates but I think its so sexy
She's so beautiful, And I tell her every day

Oh you know, you know, you know
Id never ask you to change
If perfect is what you're searching for
Then just stay the same
So don't even bother asking
If you look okay, You know I say
----------------------------------------

Our DT this week would like to welcome our newest member contributing to the fun, Sam!





















Lucky for this top 5!!!

I take it you ladies didn't like this song so much.  Hopefully we'll do better with the upcoming song.  It is coming soon, trying to nail down a last minute detail and it'll post shortly.  Our sponsor this past week was Toucan Scraps!!  She is offering up a 6 pack of digi papers to one lucky winner.  That winner is Emily!!  Please email me at scrapitwithasong(at)yahoo(dot)com and I'll arrange for your goodies. 
I love how you journaled lyrics around the photos!


Love the little embellies!


What a unique take, I LOVE the lyrics you chose to showcase.


Such a pretty layout. 


What a wonderful best friend an uncle makes...lovely layout!!!

All of you can display this logo if you'd like:

Stay tuned in a few for our next challenge...hope you can stop the whole world for a while...and play along :)

I have been scrapbooking for about 6 year and the majority of my scrapbooking revolves around my family.  I love to scrapbook everyday life! It the little things I always want to remember.  My favorite products are paper, punches, and ink. I love to find ways to use old products!  I enjoy having a blog and being on Design Teams to help inspire other to try something they may not have before!

Hi everybody! My name is Samantha and I live in the Netherlands, I will be 24 in January but for now I’m still 23. I have a English Bulldog, his name is Bink and he is my everything! I love to scrap pictures of him and I have lots of those! :)  But he is not the only one I scrap about, I love to scrap pictures of my family, my friends, the kids that live next door and everything else that catches my eye.  I love to work with different design papers, foam tape, paint, scissors and everything else that’s on my desk :) (it’s usually a mess!) I’m super excited to be a part of this team and I hope that I can inspire you to scrap with all the amazing songs that come by here.

Please welcome them and check out their blogs.  We are excited to have them on board.
