COOL STUFF - Jan. 15

Today is the very first day of a *new* feature on Ideas for Scrapbookers that I am going to post each and every Saturday! It is a free way for companies, etsy shop owners, kit club owners, digital creators, or class teachers to share their COOL stuff (I will re-post how to get your stuff on the blog at the end of the post). I am so excited to kick off today with four fabulous cool things!

1. The first cool thing is by a really innovative company called Epiphany Crafts. They have some of the coolest products such as custom button makers and felt flowers. I got a chance to work on a page with the Button Studio, and it is so fun and makes the page so customizable. Epiphany Crafts is also releasing NEW product for CHA! Here is more info and images for you to see on the company:

The Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio and Button Studio line of tools allow you to create your own epoxy shapes or buttons in just a few, quick, easy steps. Turn your scraps of paper, photos, brochures, tickets and more into one of a kind embellishments. No more searching for that perfect "extra" to match your projects, you will save time and money by creating your own accents to match your project perfectly- every time. The new CHAW product release includes Vintage Settings, Charms, Felt Flowers and more- all made to fit the Shape Studio Tool Round 14. Simply add your newly created, custom accent to a hair clip, headband, or our new flat topped fashion ring for a one of a kind accessory! Or if you prefer, all of the settings are flat backed and can be used directly on any papercrafting project. The tools are available in eight shapes and sizes to fit all of your crafting needs!

2. The next cool thing I am featuring is a really neat sketch site called Sassy Lil' sketches! This free site offers really unique and fun sketches that offers a sketch for any idea! There is even a gallery of ideas to check out! Too cool. Let's get to know more about the site!

Sassy Lil' Sketches is a sketch challenge blog featuring layout and card sketches designed by Cherie Averill. On the 7th, 14th, 21st & 28th of every month, new layout and card sketches are revealed. Sassy Lil' Sketches also offers a forum and gallery for participants to chat, inspire and teach each other.
Sassy Lil' Sketches' generous sponsors lavish three lucky participants with prizes each month. To be included in the prize drawings, you must create a card/layout based on the sketch, upload it to your favorite online gallery/site and link the URL to the coordinating blog post by the 5th of the following month. We hope to see you there!

3. The next cool thing I am featuring is a fabulous kit company. I just checked this out online and the kits look sooo yummy and easy to work with!! I am going to let them tell you why I think the kit company rocks!!

Hello fellow scrapbookers! I am really excited to be adding a really "cool" new feature to the blog. I really want to take a chance to promote (for free of course) things like scrapbook companies, scrapbook kit clubs, digital kits/sites, etsy sites, scrapbook classes, free blogs and online stores! IFS get approximately 300 - 500 visitors a day. I would love to promote everything "scrappy" as I know it helps out everyone in the scrapbook community! :) Plus we all get to see the amazing stuff we might have not seen which is always exciting!!

Please note, I will not be featuring a scrapbooker's blog or work (I am saving that for "featured artist friday) unless they are directly selling something or or giving away free digital items they created.

For ideas for images: feel free to submit photographs of products, sneak peeks, images of digital kits, layout/project examples of your product, or whatever else you think of. Also if you have any coupons or things like that you may include that as well.
When will I post your "cool stuff": I will try to post three - five things a week (more if it is super busy). I will send you a confirmation email to let you know I got your email and when I will post it. Please let me know if it is urgent, such as a kit club release or a special sneak peek of new products.
How often can I be featured: I will try to feature people no more than once every other month. Please email me each time you would like your site/product/etc promoted.
