Exciting News!

A few weeks ago, there was a call to be on the Simple Scrapper Creative Team, and without hesitation, I began filling out the application! I joined the Premium Membership to the Simple Scrapper back in April and have absolutely loved it and found great value in the membership ever since - in fact, every month I'd be saying to Chris, this is how I used my Simple Scrapper membership and why I need to keep it and best of all, he totally agreed! We don't have much superfluous money to toss around anymore now that I am not working so it was a big deal that he let me have and keep this membership.

Anyway, after I hit "send" on the application, which I did hastily because Natalie was waking from her nap, I was feeling like I should've really proofread more and expounded upon my desire and qualifications etc, thinking I rushed through it and wouldn't get on the team. Then last week, I got an email and saw that it was from Jennifer Wilson and I read the first couple of lines thinking I didn't get on the team, but lo and behold, I did - I couldn't believe it!! I started yelling woohoo and dancing around outside (Chris and I were just returning from a walk to the store with Natalie) and my whole family rejoiced with me haha! I am officially on the Creative Team for the Simple Scrapper!! Here's the official announcement!

So now what? Well I will still be posting my layouts to this blog, but I am drawing my inspiration from the new and archived sketch templates provided with the Simple Scrapper Premium Membership every month! I will also be using Story Starters to scrap the stories I want to tell and remember down the road. The layouts will then be featured in the Membership e-magazine "Spark" along with the other team layouts as well as articles written by Jennifer.

I have to say I am excited for so many reasons, but mostly that this couldn't seem like a better fit for me. I already utilize the sketch templates a ton - in fact, I went back and counted 27 sketch templates that I have used since April!! It is something I love to do and am very comfortable with. Then the added bonus that I will be challenged to use the Story Starters - I am excited to do this because I love the few pages I have created "story first" instead of "photo first" - I think the pages are richer and have such a deeper meaning! I can't wait to get started!

The Premium Membership at Simple Scrapper provides skills and shortcuts to help you simplify and find more meaning in your memory keeping.


  1. Yay for you! I'm excited to be on this team with you and have to agree with your words. I have loved being a SS member and the inspiration I get there.
