CFC19:  Use paper piecing on your Fall themed Clean And Simple project

Please say hello to our fantastic sponsor!

ScraPerfect was Born in the spring of 2003. Amy, a stay-at-home mom, was frustrated by inconsistent and unacceptable printing on vellum. She set out to find a solution and the result was The Perfect Printing Pouch. For the first few months, all aspects of production from sewing and filling the pouches, designing the package, marketing, and shipping the product were done in house. After the product’s debut at the Memory Trends Trade Show that September, other arrangements became necessary. All products continue to be manufactured and shipped by a woman-owned family business in Oregon.
In January of 2006, The Strap•n•Tap was conceived in response to requests, mainly by brides-to-be, for a faster way to treat full sheets of vellum. Although the product had no paid advertising, word about this magic product was quickly spreading on message boards and from magazine reviews. ”No inkjet owner should be without this little felt ravioli-shaped pouch,” said Scrapbook Answers. Epson Printers wrote, “We recommend you try The Perfect Printing Pouch for any vellum which resists printing.”
Amy continued development of products designed to address crafting challenges with the release of The Perfect Cleaning Cloth in 2008,Embellie Gellie in 2009, and Best Glue Ever in 2010.
ScraPerfect products are available throughout the U.S., online, and in seven other countries.
This week's TGIF winner will receive this awesome prize package!

And please give a CAS-ual welcome to our special guest temp

My name is Stacy Rodriguez and i'm a midwest girl from Illinois and i'm super excited to be the GDT with you this week.  I have been scrapbooking for about 8 years now.  I love every minute of creating cards, layouts, and altered items. I also work at my LSS so I ALWAYS have my hands on scrap goodies!!  I have been with hubby for 15 years now, and we have a daughter who just started high school this year and she is the main focus of almost all of my layouts!!   When I am scrapbooking you will always find a cup of coffee or a Dr. Pepper by my side to keep the mojo going.  I try and create something or work on a project everyday.  My scrapbook addiction is letter stickers.  Any kind, color,size you name it I love my letter stickers.
I want to thank everyone here for welcoming me as the GDT.

And now its time for our inspiration parade!
