Glad you are here for another day of cool stuff. I hope you are enjoying the "cool" things I am showcasing on the blog! I love featuring sites, it is such a treat and honor for me!

Here are the featured sites for today ;)
1. The first cool things is a kit club based out of Canada called Scrap That!. I think you will find these kits filled with lots of fabulous goodies that co-ordinate really well! Check this out!

Scrap That! Canada's Best Kit Club launched an exclusive monthly scrapbooking kit club on May 1st, 2010. Our kits are unlike any others in Canada.
Each month we create an innovative kit FULL of carefully selected high-end double sided papers, specialty papers, premium embellishments and one-of-a -kind specialty and handmade items you won't find anywhere else.
We also include a collectable signature product with each kit , a scrapbook layout sketch and one technique product including instructions and tips on how to use it.
Our kits are suitable for any level of scrapbooker, and each month you will find lots of tips and tutorials on our blog, as well as the support of our design team and our online community.

2. Next up is a really cool etsy shop which specializes in created diaper cakes. I went to this site when I received the link and instantly loved the beautiful diaper cakes listed! What a cute business idea! Let's learn more!!

Hey Everyone!
I'm Jenny. Although scrapbooking is by far my favorite craft/hobby, I have recently started making miniature diaper cakes for sale in my new Etsy shop. I was looking for a unique and fun way to try and make a little extra cash for my family, and I remembered that I had always wanted to try my hand at creating diaper cakes for baby showers and for baby gifts. So, instead of making huge, expensive, product-loaded cakes, I came up with the idea to make these "mini" cakes, which are so much fun! Thus, I created an Etsy shop: "Patty Cakes by Jenny."

The mini cakes are PERFECT to sit on guest tables at a baby shower. They make great centerpieces! :) Centerpieces/decorations that are cute AND functional since the mother-to-be can take them home after the shower and use them whenever her new little one arrives.
Each cake is made with size 1 or size 2 Pampers diapers, and all diapers will be ready for use after the cake is taken apart. These Pampers are so soft, they almost look and feel like cloth diapers!
I have SEVERAL themes to choose from! (photos only show a couple) Custom cakes are available. Send me your colors and/or theme, and I can see what I can do. 2-tier and 3-tier cakes are available too (for a higher fee).
Each cake will be wrapped in cellophane or tulle before shipping in order to keep all items intact. I will combine shipping if you are ordering more than one. Feel free to ask any questions or send me a request! I will get back to you ASAP.
I hope you will stop by "Patty Cakes by Jenny." I am adding new themes constantly and would be happy to custom make according to your theme or colors. Thanks for taking a look!

3. Our third cool site is another etsy shop which featured totally cool paper crafting kits and supplies called Hydrangea Hippo! There is such a large selection of so many items, I think you can find something for almost anyone!! There are things like pretty pins, die cut items, handmade items, and beautiful yarn!
