Kapow!! This one heavy duty, compact bins will hold EIGHT Cricut cartridges along with their books and overlays!! Or, buy two of the inserts and hold sixteen cartridges and their overlays. The bins come "empty" so you can store just about anything that you could imagine... ribbons, embelishments, buttons, stamps, alphas, paper scraps, tools... anything! There are also a few different inserts that you can buy. One of them is the cricut board shown in this photo. Check in at Scrappin' Time to see the other choices. Here's another view:
There's another great thing about these! The lids snap very securely in place and there are places to carrying straps so that you can grab them on the go! Stop in and take a look at these fantastic new "must haves"!!
Isn't that.... um... how do we put this tactfully.... unattractive? The mauve and blue metallic fabric paired with years of dirt and grime made this piece looked over for years. It took me a bit to look past all of that and see it's potential. I snatched it up (and almost felt the need to explain my odd purchase to the cashier...) and headed over to Scrappin' Time. While I was there I picked out a few pieces of patterned paper from Pink Paislee, a yard of pre-cut ribbon and a bottle of stickles. After lots of destroying and then rebuilding, here is how my trash re-craft turned out:Here's a close up of the mirror's frame:
On the bottom right part of the mirror I stamped a fox from Imaginisce's Twitterpated line that I bought at Scrappin' Time last summer. I cut the polka dot Pink Paislee paper (found on the Valentine's Day display just inside the front door) into 1" x 6" strips and wrapped them around the edge of the frame, securing them in back with adhesive (zip dry would work great for this!) I added the green ribbon to hang it from before gluing the frame to the backing. As a finishing touch I highlighted sporatic polka dots with stickles and folded a few strips of 1/2" x 6" strips accordian style and glued (with zip dry) them over the ribbon to add some depth.
What do you think? Worth the $1.50 investment? I think so!! Have you re-purposed anything lately ? Send us an email (or leave a link in the comment section) and tell us how products from Scrappin' Time helped you turn "Trash into Treasure" and we might even feature it in a future blog post!! Thanks for looking!!
Have you seen the "class in a bag" display at Scrappin' Time? It's located right next to the crop area and looks a little somethin' like this:Need an idea of how to use the scraps? These are a super easy and fun way to present a small gift (these were used to present candies and chapstick to teachers this past holiday season):
Wouldn't these also be great using Valentine's papers? Or as Birthday party treats!! Check out Erin's blog post HERE for directions. Please, leave us a comment with a link to your project if you decide to try these out!! We would love to feature your "pop top treat can" using products from Scrappin' Time!
Isn't that gorgeous?? Here are some projects off of the American Crafts website that show the great embossing powders (all of the above colors are in stock at Scrappin' Time) in action:
The powder goes on solid and bright, two great signs of a good quality embossing powder. Would you like tips on how to use embossing powders? New to embossing all together? Stop by Scrappin' Time and we'd be glad to show you how!!
Doesn't this look FUN? Didn't get a chance to join in this month? No problem!! We'll be having another crop in February... check back soon for the dates/times.... we look forward to seeing you there!

The combinated of pinks, blues, greens and yellows takes this line to a whole new level of indulgence... without the calories! What's fun? Each pice of paper is named after a different yummy treat. With names like "gumpdrop", "jawbreaker" and "pulled taffy" you will literally feel like a kid in a candy store! Click HERE to see the full product line on Basic Grey's website.
Check out this layout (created by Erin M) using just a few pieces of the Sugar Rush line:
The paper used is "Jaw Breakers" (the front and back sides) the alphas are also from the Sugar Rush collection and feature a red background with tiny, distressed pink polka dots. Another bonus? The alphas are less than $2!!
