I created my first treasury!

I finally did it. I've had so many Etsy friends create treasuries, but I had never tried it. Finally, after some encouragement I finally tried it. I created my list in poster sketch:, I then waited until it was time for the list to open up.

I don't even know what I did, but next thing I know it was asking me for a title. I typed that in quickly, thinking I don't have much time. I then was faced with a blank page, with just my title and name. Now what was I to do? I didn't want to click on anything and loose my opportunity. I finally noticed the little spaces for me to type in the listing numbers. It took me a few to learn that on my poster sketch, if I click on the edit button under each item, it will give me the item number and I can copy and paste. Wow, now that was easy!

So, after an adrenline rush, the excitement is over. I guess I have to create another one now!

My bookmark is featured today!

Thank you to Heather king Photography for featuring my rainy day "Scrapped" bookmark:
or on facebook at:

I had fun creating this bookmark just for this feature. She was looking for umbrella items and was having trouble finding any Etsy shops who had them. So, I pulled out my supplies and came up with this cheerful bookmark!

You can check out this bookmark and my other designs in my Etsy shop at:

Page maps

Ever get stuck on a scrapbook page and can't figure out what to do?

When I have that problem, I turn to Becky Fleck's web page:

They have not only page maps, but also completed pages with the design to give you all sorts of ideas.

Not only that they have card maps, round maps, tag maps, etc...

Check the archive section. You can also download and save the pages for future use. I save mine by number of photos. That way when you are creating a page, you can quickly open that file and go through your page maps. :)
