MAMBI on My Mind

Last week I had the pleasure of meeting Me & My Big Ideas founder Stephanie Rahmatullah. An OC native like me, Stephanie was sweet, down-to-Earth, and a lot of fun! Scrappy Nan and I were there to talk with her about our upcoming Crops2Remember event and she took the time to show us around the offices and warehouse. I felt like a kid in a candy store as I walked down the long 2nd floor hallway, past the designers' creative dens, to her office. Steph's assistant was warm, welcoming and friendly as she led us to Stephanie's office ... the poor gal probably found it amusing (I hope not rude!)that I couldn't string a coherent group of words together to form a sentence, much less carry on a conversation! I was too busy staring at all the great MAMBI product that lined the walls of the hall! Knowing how visual designers are, MAMBI has peg boards filled with product, representing what different stores have on their shelves and ranking products by how well they sell. Being both a scrapbooker and a marketer by trade, I was in heaven! Thanks, Stephanie, for an office tour to remember!

My favorite album right now

Even though it's nowhere near being finished, this "Daddy & Me" viewbook album is my favorite at the moment. I can't wait to fill it little by little with black and white images of Xan and his Daddy. The cover is clear acrylic with painted edges. I found scalloped 6 x 6 (or at least it was 6 x 6 until it was cut in scallops) Bazzill cardstock at the Freckle Friends booth at the Pomona Rubber Stamp and Scrapbook Expo a couple weekends ago. Keep an eye on their site: I have a feeling that they are going to be very popular vary soon. And the fun part is that Freckle Friends' home office is only a matter of blacks from my house! DANGEROUSLY close! Then I used some of the new EK Success epoxy stickers that were introduced at Winter CHA and Creative Imaginations Film Strips to embellish. And, of course, RIBBON!
