So. If you’ve been a follower of my scrapping blogs and / or Scrap Paper Scissors FB page and group, you will know that one of the five scrapbooking Design Teams I serve on is Fabscraps.
Let me talk a little about them…
In the past, I’d not worked much with their products. It seemed to me (with hindsight, of course), that more international products (Prima, Kaisercraft, Bo Bunny, Graphic 45, etc) appeared to be more marketed and available to purchase online “free-er”. Which is a bit sad really, if you consider who divine the products are that Fabscraps produce!
On a whim – and suggested (forced!) by a friend – I applied at the end of 2014 to be on the Design Team for Fabscraps. I did not expect to be picked – but I was; and cried like a baby that day the email of acceptance arrived.
And I was blown away. Both by the products I received to work with and also by the amazing staff AND my fellow, mind-blowingly talented DT members.
I re-applied again for this year and my “contract” was ‘renewed’. I have a tiny little glowing fantasy brewing that I stay on this team permanently … Oh, if only it were a long term job application!!
So, I have, in my craft room, four NEW ranges of theirs. And I’m very proud and pleased to release TWO of my projects for the first range I have in my possession – namely, C85 – Shabby Rose. This entire collection (and all collections from Fabscraps for that matter!) comprises the standard 12×12 inch papers, as well as Carders Pack, Stencils, Chippies, Chipboard Album, die cuts to “cover” your chippies, and stickers. Fabscraps also have a gorgeous selection of metal trinkets as well as ribbon, etc.
Oh – and if THAT wasn’t enough, they do a range of fabric too for quilting… I KNOW, right????
ANYWAY!!!! Here are the first two projects I’ve created. The first is a single page LO and the second is a wooden boxed “canvas”, measuring 12″ x 12″. I hope you like them!
Thanks so much for visiting my site. I hope to read LOADS of comments from you – both on my work and your own experience with Fabscraps!
