Did you think you lost me?

I'm so bad...and I've promised not to make excuses....but I feel terrible for leaving everyone hanging by not blogging.

Not sure what my deal was...just didn't get around to writing.

I've completed my monthly tech article...it was fun. I'm still hooked on inchies so I tried to come up with something new to satisfy my urges...so I've named these little guys "Scrap-lings"...is that too dorky? I couldn't think of anything else.


They are scraps from cutting regular notecards into square cards. Was a great feeling to use up my left-overs in a creative way.

We've started working on the 2009 catalog...yummy stuff coming up! I'm up to my eyeballs with projects and cards to do. I'm sorry for the tease, believe me, if I could share... I would!

I'm heading up to Scrapfest next week....get to see my girlfriend Jennifer and other industry buddies. Yay. Can't wait to get some shopping done at Mall of America. I was hoping to catch a TWINS game while I'm in town...but they will be away the entire time. WAAAAAAAAAAAA! Oh...lol, that would be the Minnesota Twins (our favorite team)....not the two boys from my previous post.

Next month I travel across the pond for a new adventure. I'll be making a television appearance in the UK. I'll keep you all posted on how to view it when I get more info. Exciting stuff! :o)

Well that's all I've got for now....I'm gonna do better at keeping in touch.....ok?
:o)

Chow!

Oh, OHHHHHHH!!! SHUT UP!!! These are so flippin' CUTE! ACK! It's really quite wretched to know I need to hit the sack and snag some zzzzz's, but, simultaneously be inspired by these and wanna to stamp like a mad woman. You are a wicked, wicked girl. GAAAAAH!!!

What a lovely set of scrap-lings. Amazing how much stamping/scrapping you can do on these cards. Looks like a great way to use MOO cards too.

Shari, love the adorable cards!! I love finding creative ways to use scraps because I save way too many. Thanks for the inspiration. Hope you have fun in Minnesota and enjoy your time at Mall of the Americas (love that place). Hope you have a great time in the UK too (how could you not, right?).

I love what you did with the card scraps! Such a great idea as always!

Shari! They are adorable! They would make awesome little magnetic bookmarks!
I am soooooooo bummed that I'm not going to be able to go to Scrapfest after two years of planning. My friend and hostess, had to have surgery so she isn't going to be able to go. I was looking forward to meeting the Hero girls... I hope you have a good time there!

When will you be coming to the UK?
I hope it's not between 4th-19th of October.... I'll be in Florida then!!!!! If you can let us know before then I can get my daughter to tape it for me. Would hate to miss your appearance. Love the latest use of labels.

Jen said...

Love the scraplings- and what a cute name! when the 2009 catalogue comes out I am just going to have to hide under a rock or something b/c there is too much I already want from 2008!

Melissa said...

OMG! Your scrap-lings are the BOMB! I can't wait to make some. My head is spinning with ideas. Oh, and you can send pics of the "twins" anytime!

Joanne said...

Shari, these are SO cute! Love, love, LOVE them! Wow - so many possibilities with these. How do you do it?!

Love your scraplings, I am going to make some and attach magnets inside to make book marks that don't loose the page your on!
Glad to hear you are coming to the UK, do let us know what channel and remember a rain coat - it is awfully wet here at the moment. If you are down south at all you are welcome to come and take one of my workshops :) (oh I wish).

Shari, could you do a video on those label cards....I love, love, love, the Christmas card you made....I understand it, but I would love to see you do a video on it on how you get them so even on the cardstock.

Many thanks...

Mary

Hi Shari! Love these scraplings! Love the name, too! I cut some cards to turn them into squares and now I have 1-inch scraps waiting to be decorated. So creatively clever!!

I have become a huge fan since viewing the Hero Arts blog in the last few months, you are my absolute favorite! Never thought to check if you had your own blog till today; you have become my latest "bookmark". I think anything and everything you do is outstanding. I even bought your book. Have a wonderful time in Minnesota and the UK. Best wishes, Susan

sweetpea94 said...

These are just TOO cute! And I love Jacki's idea to use them as magnetic bookmarks, too. I will definitely be raiding my scraps to make some of these very soon!

Hi Shari!!
I met you today at Scrapfest. You were so kind! The scrap-lings were even cuter in person. Absolutely the prettiest thing I saw today!
Hope you make it through the last day of Scrapfest. I'm too exhausted to step foot back in that mall!
