Ranger Arindondack Pigment Ink

Ranger's latest ink pads are the pigment inks that coordinate with Ranger's entire Adirondack product line and are also available in half ounce reinkers.

Whats the difference between their earlier dye pads and this pigment pads?

Pigment ink pads have slightly longer drying period as it air dries on matte papers and other surfaces and leaves behind a vibrant and rich, opaque color. And because they are juicier, these are the perfect choice for embossing! According to the directions, they can also be heat set on glossy paper, vellum, shrink plastic, metal and glass.

The Adirondack color palette includes a coordinating light, bright, and earthtone shade of the same color, allowing for amazing shading and depth in stamped projects. There are six families of color (blue, yellow, green, purple, red and pink) plus pitch black and snow cap white for a total of 20 colors. Scrap-n-Crop has ALL THE COLOURS! Not only can you use these inks in their color families, but the tones (lights, brights and earthtones) also all coordinate.

Each case comes with a tight fitting lid and another plastic cover on the inside directly over the ink pad itself to help keep it from drying out. The pads have a raised foam surface that holds the ink above the case for easy direct-to-paper applications and to keep your fingers as clean as possible. The cases are black plastic making it a clear distinction from the dye ink pads which are a light tan color. The label on the top of the case is the color of the ink and the name is printed in clear block letters too. The bottom label states the color name and features of the ink. All of the cases are stackable and are actually made to fit neatly together when stacked to prevent them from falling over.

Supporting WWF

Hi there...this is not related to scrapbooking but nevertheless deserves a mention as the author is really doing this for a good cause and they are SnC's friends. Shamini Flint, is donating all her royalties from the sale of this book to the WWF! And we are all for preservation and saving the world!

So, what is the story about?

Honesty Smith and Spencer Jones - two ordinary children on a quest to save the planet. But is it too late for the orang utans of Borneo and the polar bears of Alaska?

"The Seeds of Time is an enjoyable, gripping and perfectly-timed story of young people and animals teaming up to save the world!" - Nury Vittachi.

"The Seeds of Time, delightfully and with a spirit of bold adventure, inspires us to believe that, whether young or old, we can save our beautiful planet Earth."
- Dr. Isabelle Louis, Director, Asia Pacific Region, World Wide Fund for Nature.

Buy this book and many others from Sunbear Publishing at Homart Bazaar, 30th and 31st August 2008 at Great Eastern Mall from 10am onwards. For more information, contact Angeline at 012-297 4533 or via email at See you all there!

Magic Mesh?

Re-invent your pages with Magic Mesh*.
Add pizzazz, texture, and 3-D effects to pages, cards, tags, memory books, and other projects with our craft mesh.
The opportunities are limited only by your imagination.

Be creative, have fun, and Make projects!

Sounds fun? We thought so too.
So we researched further and this is what we found:

{ the .... BUT WHAT IS MAGIC MESH? answer }

Magic Mesh is a self-adhesive, repositionable decorative craft mesh that adds dimension and texture to any page or project. The mesh comes in a variety of weave thicknesses, and textures--including Dottie Ann’s (polka dot) and bejeweling mesh (knit metal mesh)—widths, and a wide range of colors—over 50 products in all.

OK, I wasn't sure how to use it, so I have only brought in a little to try...but as usual I hoard but have not tried... and managed to get these inspirations from their website.

PSA + Sonja McLean + 2 Peas

Here's what one of our volunteers stumbled upon in 2 Peas in A Bucket!
Our very own Project Scrap-away Challenger's entry for Challenge #6 ~ Dotto, which incidentally won the Challenge for that particular week.

Title: Challenge #6 - Four Coasters
Posted by: booker-baby
Posted: 7/13/2008
Format: Other
Gallery: Layouts

Project Scrap Away's sixth challenge was to create four coasters using DOTS as the theme. I mounted my four coasters onto a large square frame.
Thanks Sonja for putting us on the 2 Peas in a Bucket and sharing your wonderful work with others! Check out Sonja's other creations for PSA at our Project 365 blog or a selection in 2 Peas in a Bucket.

Zutter Round It All + Acrylic Sheets

New from Zutter Innovative, the Pink Round It Alls - finally, a corner rounder for chipboard and acrylic!!! And since this rounds acrylics so easily, one can't have the tool without the acrylics... hence we brought in acrylic sheets for your Bind-it-All as well.

Sunday, August 17, 2008

I found this in Memory Makers Blog, a funky edges layout from our DT Iris, Memory Makers Master 08'.

I thought I would feature it here as quite apt, she shows us how she had mixed the old and new!!! Yes, similar to our PSA Challenge 12 challenge of the week.

Materials used: Patterned Papers from Autumn Leaves, Heidi Swapp, Pink Paislee and Basic Grey. Chipboard by Scrapping Outback and Word Strips by Teresa Collins.

Going GREEN with Paper Trunk

If you have never heard of Paper Trunk, you should definitely check it out as owner Carrie Postma creates a difference to the environment with her special collection of fantastic scrapbook papers and stamps.

What makes her products and company so different?
When Carrie set out to have her papers printed, she had no idea how many choices she would have to pick from. She could have gone with a typical scrapbook paper but, she chose a recycled cardstock.

Paper Trunk's paper is made with wind-generated electricity and 3% PCW.
And the breathtaking designs are printed with vegetable based ink making the cardstock safe for your memories and the environment.

As for us, well, we have been asked repeatedly: how Scrap-n-Crop supports Mother Nature? in all the ENVIRONMENTAL OUTREACH PROGRAMMES we participate in!

Well, here we have it now!!! Bringing to you, PAPER TRUNK...
and with Paper Trunk's debut, we bring to you 2 collections:

Giant PEGs: back by popular demand

We received a whole lot of ruckus and unnecessary RUSH when these GIANT Bare Elements Diane Clothe Pegs first made their appearance in the old blog. With my sister hoarding most of them, making little gifts for all her colleagues, I had to quickly reorder.

So, here they are again in-store.

{ aren't they cute}

Well, apparently we weren't the only one who thought so!
From our earlier blog entry on imaginisce - a sneak preview, we have been having walkins and calls from buyers calling for us to list! list! list!

The result? In less than a month we are almost running out of clear stamps, 'talk tags' (sticker tags), rub-ons, embellishments and patterned paper.
