New in (and a first for me) is the 6" x 6" paper pad (Hello Luscious) from Basic Grey. I have other ranges on order and hopefully they will be in stock very soon. Other loveliness have been added to the shop today also. Why not pop over and have a look!
I am always excited when an order arrives (how sad is that) but it is like Christmas when I open it although I already know what's inside (well most of the time).

Remember too that I am giving one of these collection packs away in this month's BLOG CANDY draw - so if you haven't done any reviews yet now is the time to get them in to get your name in the draw. The draw will take place on 1st April so you still have time.
Thank you for stopping by and please leave a comment to say you have visited!

I made my decision purely on ability and used their blogs to show me what they are capable of doing. I am sure they will all do an excellent job with any products that they are sent and I look forward to displaying their creations on this blog and in The Scrapbook Garden Gallery.
I have added their individual blog links so you can pop over and view their creations.

While you are in the shop, why not write a few reviews at the same time and you could win the BLOG CANDY as well in this month's draw!
I am going to announce the Design Team Members tomorrow, so don't forget to pop by and see who has made the team.

As Jaqi has shown, it is quite easy and doesn't take very long to write a review (or two) and for every review you do write until the end of March, you will be entered into the draw for the BLOG CANDY. In case you aren't sure what that is - I am giving away 1 x Echo Park 'For the Record' Collection Pack (brand new out!) to the lucky person who's name is picked (by a random number generator) on 1st April 2011.
Best of luck and keep those reviews coming in.

The kind of team I am looking to get is a diverse range of talents, to showcase some of the lovely products that I stock here at The Scrapbook Garden shop. I have some lovely patterned papers on order from Crate Paper and Glitz Design and will be getting all the new releases of chipboard from Tando Creative in the future.
In the meantime, don't be shy - get your names in the BLOG CANDY draw by writing some product reviews. Every review will get your name in the draw for the Echo Park 'For the Record' collection kit. You have until the end of the month to get your reviews written.
Saturday, 12 March 2011
I don't mind you displaying the items you make on your own personal blogs - but not to enter any designs using products that I supply into any competitions or other blog candy giveaways etc.
I have some Tando Creative chipboard waiting to be made up into lovely designs and this would be the first project that you would undertake. The only specification I make is that you live in this country as it is too expensive to be posting items outside the UK. If you have a blog where you show your work - please leave a link so that I can see what you have done in the past. Please leave a comment below if you are interested in being a Design Team Member and I will get back to you.
Don't forget that the BLOG CANDY giveaway here at The Scrapbook Garden Blog is still active until 31st March.

Instead of me asking for a review of a certain product each day, ANY REVIEWS that are completed (until 31st March 2011), will entitle the reviewee to have their name entered into the draw for the blog candy. I hope this meets with everyone's approval. It does mean that you have free range of products to review - so feel free. I would still like it if you left a message on this blog but if not, I will mention it the next day - that way prospective customers can see what other crafter's think of the products.
Thank you for stopping by - now get reviewing (the more reviews you do the more chances you have in the blog candy draw). I have added Jaqi into the blog candy draw (4 times) for today as she has written reviews on the following: Glitz Design Patterned Papers - Love Nest Block, Polka, Stripe and Prima: Botanical - My love (patterned paper).
Hope to see loads and loads of reviews in the coming weeks! Good luck to you all.

Write a review on a product that you have ACTUALLY USED that I sell at The Scrapbook Garden. Write only 1 REVIEW EACH DAY - on the actual day. If the review is written after the day requested this will not count.
For EACH review that you write I will add your name into the draw for that day. EVERYONE who writes a review EACH DAY will be entered into the draw.
Each day I will post the product that I wish you to write a review on and once you have, please come back into the blog to let me know that you have written it.
Lets get started: todays product review is - RANGER DISTRESS STICKLES (in any colour).
How to write a review: Firstly, log into The Scrapbook Garden website shop (you will need to have a customer account to do this). Find the product I have asked you to write a review on - write the review and log out. Return to this blog and leave a simple message saying that you have completed the product review for that day. EVERYONE who reviews the designated product for that day will be entered into the draw. Best of luck to you all!
DRAW DATE: 1st April 2011

I have used a similar layout before but I liked how the circles (with words) patterned papers lend themselves to this type of layout. I just added some 'Thickers' for my title and kept it within the circle to keep the lines on the layout clean.
Because the original photo colours didn't really match any of the patterned papers (they are VERY COLOURFUL), I just converted the photo to black and white (problem solved!).
A note to the ladies of Boldon Scrapaholix Club - I hope these layouts give you some inspiration on what photographs to bring along on Tuesday - see you all then.

There are 6 sheets of patterned paper in the kit this month, so I have another layout to post tomorrow. Please leave a comment so I know you have stopped by.
Wednesday, 2 March 2011
I have two more to post - so watch this space over the next few days.
