Oldie But Goodie Thursday!

Check out the great Oldie but Goodies Our team has to offer today.  We have some great projects that are sure to inspire your many projects!!!

Before you check out the projects it gives me great pleasure to introduce our  great new Guest Design team member.  Please join me and give Jackie Rakoski a warm welcome to the team for the month of July.  I am so excited to have her as a guest designer this month!

Jackie Ren Faire

Here is a little bit about her:

My name is Jackie, also know as babitoons on various forums. I was born and raised in New Jersey, a long time Assistant Librarian, I volunteered for five years before working part time for another seven years. In 2007 I graduated from NJIT with a Bachelors of Architecture. I currently work for a NJ Architecture firm full time as an Architectural Designer. I started stamping about nine years ago, while on a ‘break’ while I worked on my degree. When I started stamping I was surrounded by so many wonderful people even thought I was one of the younger stampers around; I was 16 years old at the time. Now my ‘spare time’ has become filled with stamping and I love it! What better way to spend a day then creating!

Here is her card for today’s Oldie but Goodies

Scrappy Sketch Sunday for the week of 6-27-10

Hi everyone! I'm back with another fun sketch to share with you! Remember you can feel free to use this sketch all week for whatever projects or cards you might need a layout for! This is a challenge sketch that you can use along with one of Bugaboo Stamps New Releases on Tuesday, with the freebies each Friday or to make your own Oldie but Goody to share with us on Thursday!

Feel free to use it wherever and with whatever other challenges you want to, so long as you give credit where credit is due, and mention me (Scrappy) , and Bugaboo Stamps Catch the Bug Blog as your source for the sketch! When you use the sketch, we'd also love if you drop in on our fan groups at SNR , PCP, or our new BUGABOO FAN GROUP over at Crafter's Digital Art Center. Be sure to leave a comment with a direct link to it on your blog or online gallery so we can all see what you've done!
