12 Days * Day 2

For the scrapbookers young and old, new and seasoned …


Lain's BRAND NEW, super-hilarious, stocking-stuffer sized book of scrapbooking Snippets.
It's easy to take yourself too seriously in this hobby. On days when you are feeling out of sorts and ideas, a copy of Lain's book will be an easy dose of laughter and lighthearted insight that is sure to put you in a positive perspective.


I've already blogged about this NEW special issue from Simple Scrapbooks, but NOW I have THREE copies to give away! Leave me a comment before tomorrow's post goes up and you'll be entered in a random drawing.

This special is worth another mention because I have two, time-tested personal strategies for NOT getting bogged down in my scrapbooking routine. One of these is photo album scrapbooking and the details are inside this magazine. Consider this a $7.00 investment in your sanity. In fact, you could get both Lain's humor and Stacy's secret to productivity for under twenty bucks. WOW!


And now, a few additional stocking stuffers that I LOVE. When I was in Montana a month or so ago, I was given an adorable bracelet. I later learned that it is the product of two very cool ideas from Creative Imaginations.

Creative Lifestyles round bracelet + Lifestyle round epoxy stickers = super-cute bracelet for you, your sister, your daughter or your friend!

The bracelet features 8 connected disks to decorate with the epoxy
stickers. You'll need 16 stickers. The good news is they are only $1.00
for four!

I searched and search for a good online source for these and finally found Danelle Johnson's "Just Need It" store (see the links above) If you have any questions about purchases, you can email Danelle here.


I have a short list of MOST FAVORITE scrapbooking tools and Doodlebug's LIMEADE craft knife is at the very top. It's CUTE and easy to hold (soft rubber coating) and will NOT roll away and get lost on my work table. If you don't have one — you NEED one.


Next up (on my short list) in the Close To My Heart distressing kit. I obviously like attractive tools, but I also appreciate and require the idea of form + function which can be found here. If you have the Summer 2008 catalog, see page 99 … or just call or email your consultant. Need a CTMH consultant? click here.

23 Days and counting!

It kind of reminds me of a class I took with you at Scrap Etc. even 2007 in Birmingham, Al where we made a black and white book with 40 pictures in a record amount of time! I learned a lot that day, and it has “freed” me from getting bogged down in scrapbooking.

  90. I really need to work this PAS thing out – totally bought in to the concept, tripping myself up on the execution.

  91. I have two of your things from yesterday written down for my son… that bank would be a HUGE hit, and the Snippets is on MY list as well as Mom’s. The mag… that would be a fun thing just for me!

  92. I would love the photo album book to be in my stocking this year!! I just bought a photo album to use for Thanksgiving pictures and thoughts and I would really love a bit more “instruction” on making it lovely and cherished.

  93. Love to win the book to get ideas on getting my stack of photos into albums FAST.

  94. Anything that makes things easier for me is worth it! What a great giveaway!

  95. ScrappyMommy says:

    Way cool stuff Stacy, most especially I’m happy that you like the Close To My Heart distressing kit, as a consultant it’s always nice to see our products being endorsed by an expert! Lain’s book looks like it will probably end up on my list!

  96. Hi Stacy,
    You find the neatest things! You wouldn’t believe how many of the sites/blogs you have suggested that I now have bookmarked, or how many interesting, thoughtful gifts I have given thanks to your input! I’m thinking of giving the digital soccer ball to my nephew for Christmas! Keep up the good work! Love ya!
    Enjoy the Christmas season!

  143. O, I could use a time saver like that. I know I shouldn’t let my pictures rule my scrapbooking, but I could do with a little help. And let’s be honest: who doesn’t like to get a present?

  144. I’ve been looking for the photo albums book in stores here for ages. I really want that one, but hate the idea of paying for shipping. Does that make me cheap?

  145. tammy Thomas says:

  146. I didn’t realize that photo book was out. I soooo want one!!! I may have to search out Snippets too. I look forward to your lists…so fun. I bought the Starbucks holiday CD last year based on your recommendation and absolutely love it!!! Keep ‘em coming.

  147. Oh, I wish I could find somewhere in Australia with those two books! Awesome idea books are so hard to come by… and I have a huge stack of photos, and photo albums waiting for some inspiration!

  148. I haven’t found that issue in our magazine stands here. I’ll be on the lookout for it. But it would be more fun if I could win it! :D

  149. Thanks for the fun giveaway Stacy! Always love your great ideas and suggestions!

  219. I pop over to your blog every day just to see what you have going on! You seem so real and down to earth – I like that! Count me in on wanting to get a copy of that new book!

  220. I’d love to read this special issue. LOVE Simple Scrapbooks.

  221. I have been waiting for Snippets as well as the special issue. I am so a “simple” girl, now to work it all into my not so simple life!! Thanks for the giveaway!

  222. I’ve been thinking about photo album scrapbooking after being introduced to it by Laurie Stamas at Creative Escape this year. We used a 12×12 album with 4×6 photo holders. Some have pictures, some a great piece of patterned paper, some a journaling list (she was very big on lists – again, the whole idea of making things simple). I would love to see other ways to make photo album scrapbooks. Thank you for the chance to win one of the magazines.

  223. great stocking stuffer ideas! I love seeing this kind of thing and hearing what people think of it…thanks for sharing!

  224. I’ve been playing catch up on my blog reading and just followed your link to adventconspiracy.org that you posted yesterday. Thank you so much for sharing that. I’ve already passed it on to a few others. And I would love to win a copy of the special edition to give to my sister (I’ve already purchased one for myself.)

  225. I love the tips. I can’t wait to see what you have to talk about tomorrow.

  226. abaltayan says:

  228. Thanks for all the good stocking stuffer ideas!

  229. I like that craft knife! Mine is always rolling around & getting lost. I’d love to win that copy of Simple! ;o)

  230. Renee D in FL says:

    Hi Stacy
    Thanks for sharing your life, dreams and scrapbooking with us. You are such an inspiration.

  250. Snippets sounds so funny- I read a snippet (haha) of it on SS- funny!! I would love to hear your ideas on photo album scrapbooking- I copied your red “Friends” album years ago (I bought the same album at Target- loved it!). But- I tried to do one of a trip I took and I put all the pictures in then took them out to rearrange them, and now I’m still (3 years later!!) trying to put them back in!! I think I need some of your relaxed, lighten up, get it done attitude!!

  251. OOO!!! Any book you recommend, I have to have. I am a huge Stacy Julian fan! I took your track at CKU-Albums. You truly are one of the neatest people I have ever met.

  252. Have the doodlebug, you are so right it is awesome..now for the books both are on my wish list! thanks for the chance!

  253. We have two of the photo album/scrapbooks after I took your Have More Fun class. They are great and easy to do. I’d love a copy of the special issue!

  254. I’ve got the photo album scrapping book on my Christmas list, but it wouldn’t bother me at all to just win it and substitute something else on my list! I love your blog, Stacy. You do inspire me in so many ways… but it is inspiration that also allows me to BREATHE!!!

  255. carrie heaphy says:

  269. This special issue sounds great. Thanks for your generosity Stacy.
