Meet Ann--ACOT's 2nd Featured Guest For August

Ann (aka: Beachlover on the Message Board)

Ann gets her inspiration from anything and everything around her! She's been scrapping for ten years and has been a member of our ACOT family for nearly 5 years, now.

What is a favorite technique that you like to use?

Lately I have been really getting into distressing.

When and where do you create your layouts?

I have a little cubby that is a home office/scrappy area. I work two jobs, so I rarely have the energy to scrap during the week. Usually Sundays are my scrapbook days unless I am lucky enough to get out to a crop.

What is a favorite layout of yours and why?

I have not found a LO of mine that has completely satisfied me. I think I’m still trying to ‘find my mojo’.

Get to know more about Ann by reading her complete interview.

Meet Lilkoala--One of August's Featured Guests

Leslie (aka: lilkoala on the ACOT Message Board)

You will NEVER forget Leslie! Check out her profile and get to know more about her! Here's an exerpt from her recent CT interview:

Name 3 of your favorite embellishments to work with. Human hair, goldfish crackers, and gum chewed by celebrities.

What are your favorite adhesives? I’ve rigged up my ATG to dispense grape jam. I find it makes a less-expensive and tasty adhesive.

What is your top two fave holidays? My birthday and my birthday. I don’t like to share holidays with other people or religious figures. Or leprechauns.

Read her complete interview HERE.

Don't go too far away! You'll get to meet our second Featured Guest "Beachlover" in our next blog entry!

CHA Wrap Up--With Pics!

Pam, Kristin and Jules

Kristin and I are back from CHA. What a trip! The Orlando Convention Center is one of the largest we’ve ever be in. When filled, it probably surpasses the populations of most small towns. Crazy!

We had a blast seeing and buying the newest releases and seeing the faces behind many of our favorite manufacturers.

The highlight?

Why hanging with members of our Creative Team and our ACOT Message Board, of course!

What an amazing turn out for our Meet-N-Greet. Much appreciation goes to Pam and Sus for helping us re-organize the meeting. Being ‘newbies’ to Orlando, it was a little harder than we thought to find a suitable place that opened before 6pm. We had a fantastic time. Tons of pictures were taken. I’m including some here, but you can view even more on our Message Board!

Pam sportin' a gift from Jules

Thank you so much for attending and sharing and just being the amazing ladies you are!

CT Member Kristi and James from Tattered Angels

Kristin and I picked up some great new releases from manufacturers like Basic Grey, Bo-Bunny, My Mind's Eye, Fancy Pants Designs and Graphic 45. The Fall line-up is beginning to arrive already! Be sure to check out our New Release section for all of the latest and greatest!
