A national company cropping in Pensacola??? No way!

Yep, it's true! I can hardly believe it myself! The ProvoCraft executive design team will be staying in Pensacola Beach March 12-14. And one lucky person gets to go! (Transportation not included!) Learn more here on Michelle Brooks' blog:

I've entered to win... and hope I do! What a great way to gain some crafty inspiration!

Products now available at From Cover 2 Cover!

I am pleased to announce that Kits2Remember acrylic, metal and chipboard are now available at From Cover 2 Cover, a new online store owned by K2R enthusiast Julie Wilcox. Julie has been a huge K2R supporter the past two years and has been a great customer! She lives in Southern California, has her own unique style and creative ideas, and is also a paper crafting instructor.

From Cover 2 Cover will have these raw materials available for both wholesale and retail, and Julie warmly welcomes all K2R customers to her store. If you live in Southern California, be sure to stop by the From Cover 2 Cover booth during the San Diego Scrapbook Expo the first Friday and Saturday in May.

I wish Julie the best of luck in her new venture and hope those of you who have supported Kits2Remember so well will do the same for From Cover 2 Cover!

The Cinch ... works on K2R materials!

It's been confirmed: We R Memory Keepers new binding system, The Cinch, works on all of Kits2Remember's raw materials: chipboard, acrylic and metal. Essentially, it is the same as group of Crop-a-diles lined up. I can't wait to give one a try! Here are a couple of videos that show off exactly what this new tool can do:

Tough times for the scrapbook industry continue...

Sad but true. While CHA-Winter in Anaheim, Calif., showcased a number of fun and innovative companies and products, some of the old favorites are closing up shop. While the unique raw materials of Kits2Remember will hopefully be back on the market with a new owner sometime soon, there are a number of manufacturers who aren't so lucky. The latest is Rusty Pickle, who I remember as being a fun and generous company when the SoCal2Provo Bus Tour traveled up to CKU-Provo a year and a half ago (Creating Keepsakes University is another scrappy something that has gone the way of the dodo...).

SoCal2Provo Bus "tourist" Stephanie shows off her shopping smile. Owner Lance Anderson (below) opened up the RP warehouse at midnight one night exclusively for the bus tourists, riding woth us on the bus and acting as our personal tour guide.

Here is the email I received today:


This past year has been incredibly tough on Rusty Pickle due to the economic situation. We feel that we can no longer survive as a company; consequently we have decided to close Rusty Pickle. We would like to thank all our customers who have supported Rusty Pickle for the last 7 years.

Rusty Pickle will be liquidating inventory. We now offer everything at half price. On, everything is now 50% off - prices are as marked. The warehouse is also now open to shop. Call or email to find out more of what we have. (801) 746-1045 or email
Warehouse Hours 9am-2pm
