have you ever been

heres the update i promised!!! get ready cuz i got lots of pictures!!! lets start off with the new stuff we got in yesterday: my minds eye!!!

my minds eye released 3 new collections and we have all 3! Breaking Free is a very fun, summery collection that is also great to use year round!
Pretty Please is the prefect collection for the girliest girl!
then there is Andrea Victoria, a collection so elegant, it will have you reaching for a ballgown in no time!
and we cant leave out the accessories!!! we have tons of die cuts, transparencies and rubons!
imaginisce has done it again! they came out with an adorable new line of paper called "wild things!" i took one look at these papers and boy did i feel like going to the zoo!
what better reason to go to the zoo than to scrapbook it with cute paper? (stamps too!)
now that thats all done and out of the way...wanna see my current project? here we go!
remember i told you about that board i have in my room? its a foam core board that i covered with paper and put pictures of the things that inspire me. i have decided that i want to make a mini book version of it!
the binder part is a catalog that we got a while ago, it measures about 9x9. i took a zoomed in picture of the flower cuz i just love the giant-ness of it! its the perfect color and it feels so pretty when you touch it :)
and the inside cover was fun too! once i trimmed the cardstock down to size i embossed a huge corner stamp on it. you stamp with versamark embossing ink, then put clear embossing powder on top and heat set it. when it melts, it will be clear and glossy but it does make the color of your cardstock a few shades darker.
after the embossing, i glued it down to the book and wrapped the cover with 2 ribbons and tied them in the front with a knot. (i like knots better than bows)
here is my first page. none of my pages will have photos until i finish the book cuz i havent decided how to arrange the "categories of inspiration" i copied this layout from the dirty class that i taught recently. it is sort of a mini version of a layout that mama made and i really liked it. the circle paper is velvet and its like heaven to touch!
the second page also called inspiration from my class project :) i loooooove these colors so much! they go so well together! i want to redo my bedroom in these colors but that may take a while.
i made a matchbook brag book recently and it got me jones-ing for more matchbooks! they are so much fun to make and they are easy to finish. i decided to make a matchbook in my album! so i have a mini book in a mini book! how cool is that? a book in a book. if only i could do a book in a book in a book....
heres a close up shot to show you the detail of that embossing. have any of you heard of tim holtz's distress powder? it looks like ambossing powder but its not. you use it just like you would embossing powder, but when it melts, it doesnt become glossy. its sort of matte and it feels like sand paper.
and showing off my new clock stamp. i love love love this stamp and have been looking for it for ages!!! we have more on order, so let me know if youd like one.
i left the matchbook to only have 4 pages, this way it wont be too heavy and weight down the page. i ripped just the top of the page to give it a vintage book feel.
and of course the many more pages to go. some of them are half pages so it will be like those farm doors where the top and bottom open separately... (i would love to have one of those doors in my dream home, it would lead to the backyard)
and thats my update for you! again i am so sorry for leaving you bored for an entire week :( but here i am! i'll try to be better this week!!!
ps, hoping doodle bug will come in this week, i'll let you know!

good morning starshine, the earth says hello! its a beautiful aloha friday and i am loving it! im so sorry i havent been on here sooner, but hey i am here now!
as you may know, we closed on mothers day and i wanna share what we did!
first we went to the mililani cemetery to visit daddy's parents. we wanted to eat our breakfast out there with them, but we were too hungry and ate earlier. after our visit we started our trip around the island! first we stopped at the bead gallery and i got a chance to pick up supplies for a class im taking with them. from there we were off!
i took this pic right outside the entrance to sea life park. i have always loved seeing this island, even when i was a little girl. at first, i had no idea why it was called rabbit island. ;) after here, we stopped by a place in time to say hello to our kailua scrappy friends. its always nice to see them!
we ended up back home at around 3pm and all of us crashed for a 3 hour nap!

it was a lovely mother's day. technically im a fur-momma now so i got to celebrate too!!
on another note, have any of you heard of timtam? its this chocolate biscuit with two layers of chocolate malted biscuit with chocolate cream in the middle and covered in more chocolate. its a like a cookie and it tastes really good!!! anyhoo.... why am i talking about them?
the other night at our crop, a couple of ladies did what is called the timtam slam.
its where you bite off each end of the timtam and use it like a straw in a hot beverage. the hot liquid melts all the chocolate in your mouth and it feels soooo good!
but the trick is to eat it before it falls into your drink! if you wanna try them, stop by and pick up a coupon from us!
remember that class i told you about? the one thats tonight? heres the project:
in this class, i will be teaching distressing techniques and a couple of altering techniques.
see you later!

love love love love

its aloha friday! no work till monday...a dooby doo, doo doo doo dooby doo...... i think those are the right lyrics, but the words arent fitting to me exactly cuz i gotta work tomorrow too!

tonight is the "Gift for Mom" class. for this class, we will have kids make a gift for their moms, but mom cant see the gift until mothers day! this is the first time we're doing a class like this, and i think its gonna be great! we are going to do another class like this for father's day too.
i finally have pictures from National Scrapbook Day! for NSD, we had a scavenger hunt and took everyone's picture when they finished. heres a few, take a peek:
Dr. Ashley
Dr. Brenda
Dr. Alex and his mom Dr. Erin
Dr. Nicole
and the winner of the prize basket, Janice!
i'll bet she had fun playing with her new "surgical supplies" for those who came and participated, thanks for coming out, we had lots of fun with you! and a big thank you to the croppers who spent their time here at Scrapbook Heaven!
i got a chance to update the class schedule for may (sorry it took me a whole week, idk why i didnt check that!) but if you see the "dirty elegance" thats my class! it was a series i started a couple years ago but havent been able to re-ignite until now! in this class, i use different distressing techiniques to make a scrapbook page or two. for this month's class, i am using 5 sheets of printed paper and 6 sheets of cardstock to make a bunch of different things including 2 8x8 layouts, a matchbook bragbook, a card and a couple more goodies! here is a sneak peek at some of the ingredients.
this class is on friday may 15th from 6:30pm.
i have one more thing before i get going and its a little off topic but still fun! i want you to meet my new best friend, Shaggy!
he is such a cutey! he is chihuahua with a little bit of dachshund. you can really see the dachshund in his nosey! so far he's been sleeping a lot, and he is such a well behaved little boy.

if you wonder why we named him shaggy, its because our two beagles are scooby and daphne ;)

see you later!
