A new Design Team for me - 3 Scrappy Boys Online Store & Kit Club!

Have you heard?  Did you see??  The announcement was a while ago now and 
I am sooo excited that I made it onto the 3 Scrappy Boys Design Team. 
You can read the Design Team announcement here. 

They have the sweetest mixes at the keenest prices 
and a store full of all sorts of scrappy goodness - 
AND right now, not only is there a SALE on but there are
also some SPECIAL DEALS on their kits with
10% of the purchase price going to charity.

{A charity dear to MY heart too as my brother also
died of multiple myeloma 13 years ago}.

so if you are looking for somewhere to hang out
and some well co-ordinated kits that are great value 
for moneylook no further than
3 SCRAPPY BOYS and I will see you there!

I'll be starting in NOVEMBER and working 
with a kit every SECOND month 
for the next 6 months!

You can look here to see my GUEST DESIGNER PROJECTS
that I did for them last month.

My kit got inexplicably delayed and I was left with 48 hours
to create in, photograph, edit and send back in 
and I managed to create EIGHT PROJECTS
- yup - the kit was THAT NICE -
I just couldn't keep my hands off it LOL!


 I have included the newsletter
just for interest too...

  I am so excited to introduce our new DT! Please join me in welcoming them to 3 Scrappy Boys.

  I also wanted to mention here that I have decided to donate 10% of all purchases made in October to either the Susan G. Komen Foundation or The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The proceeds will be split evenly. I am sure all of us have been touched by cancer in some way and this is a nice way to donate. The donation to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society will be in my father's honor who died after a long battle with multiple myeloma. During that time LLS did a lot for him. The donation to the Susan G. Komen Foundation wil be in honor of breast cancer awareness month. 
   As a special incentive to give, the store is 10% off and I've added several multi-kit packs that are an even better deal. Since Octoberfest has been on my mind, they are called kitober packs.

Have fun shopping for a cause!

Heather Bowser-Design Team Coordinator
Hi. I am Heather. A stay at home- homeschooling mom to eleven beautiful children. Yep. I am blessed. I love photography and work to improve every time I pick up my camera. I have been scrapbooking for 11 years and still love it. My children love looking through our albums and remembering all the things they have done and places we have gone. I recently discovered facebook and have been having fun catching up with old friends and family members. I love dark chocolate and eat a piece everyday. I can't stand sour cream and won't even touch a spoon that has it on it.

My name is Helen Tilbury & I live in Durban, South Africa, with my
scrap-tolerant husband Shane & our four children - Chelsea (18), Jack (16),
Reilly (13) and Cami (11).
I love all things paper-related & am also a keen photographer.
I've been paper-crafting for 8 years now & am showing no signs of stopping
any time soon -
In fact I have enough stash to start a store so I'm going to be scrapping
the rest of my life just to get my money's worth!
When I'm not taking photos, scrapbooking or blogging I'm either doing stuff
with the kids, gardening or working on a DIY project.
I love keeping busy & being creative.
I also love connecting with other bloggers from all over the world & have a
huge bunch of online friends I hope to meet one day when I travel the world!

When I'm not pursuing my passions or doing my "mum" job you could fine me
relaxing with a magazine & eating a delicious meal prepared by my hubs, who
is a great chef.yes! I'm a lucky girl!!
I am also on a few other design teams, namely Sketchabilities, Once Upon a
Sketch, Bird is the Word, Scrapbook Kits with Jules, Color Combos Galore &
You can find my blog @
I am so excited to be part of the team here at 3 Scrappy Boys and look
forward to meeting you all soon!

Hi! My name is Yara Freytes, and I am very excited to design for 3ScrappyBoys. 
I live in Puerto Rico with my dear husband and our two boys, Luis (7 years old) and Diego (5 years old). I have an engineering degree, and right now I have a short-term project at a pharmaceutical company. I started scrapping on 2003, when I was pregnant from my first child, and I had not been able to stop. I love it! 

I love to do 12X12 scrapbook layouts of my two boys and our family trips. I love to work with patterned papers and using bright colors. I love to embellish my pages using stickers, chipboard, journaling die cuts, buttons, punches and some hand stitching. My favorite technique is fussy cutting. My hobbies other than scrapbooking, are walking/jogging, reading blogs via Goggle Reader, playing Tiny Tower, spending time with my family and travel.

My name is Christy Woodson and I live in the mountains of western North Carolina.  I'm a mom to two boys, 5 and 16, and I've been married to my high school sweetheart for almost 17 years.  I will finish my Associates Degree in Nursing in May 2012 and hopefully begin working as an RN while I continue on with my education.  I've been scrapping for almost ten years and my only regret is that I didn't start sooner!!  I work at my LSS and love teaching classes there because it really pushes me creatively and makes me scrap outside of my little box.  I love all the goodies Heather packs in the kits and I'm looking forward to serving on the 3SB Design Team with this great group of talented ladies!

Hello there!  I'm Lan Amphone, been married to my husband Lam for 9 years and we have 3 lovely kids, Makenzie (6), Micah (5), and Paxton (2).  I"ve lived in KS all my life since we came to the US thirty years ago.  I work full time as a tax accountant so scrapbooking has been the perfect outlet for my creative juices.  I love to eat, study photography, chat on-line with friends, read, exercise, and spend time with family.  I started scrapbooking right after graduating from college and  my style has evolved.  I like simple and clean but also love trying out new trends and must add embellishing!  Border punches are my favorite tool!
