Laura Turcotte

wow---amazing 'hellos'! I know my wishlist has just grown!

So, I'm 'inclined' to answer some of your questions! :)
-Do you consider yourself a card maker, a scrapbooker, or both? Both
-Are you on Pinterest? Mind leaving a link to your Pinterest board? Yes, LOVE Pinterest! http://www.pinterest.com/blueyedscrapper/
-What is your favorite crafting supply? Changes frequently..eek!
-What is your favorite crafting company? This changes alot...right now..American Crafts/Crate paper
-If you could sit down and craft with anybody, who would it be? Well, I think it would be a toss up between May Flaum, and my old school chum, whom I recently found on a scrapbook forum, Wendy!


I'm Bette and I'm a card maker. Yes, I'm on pinterest under Bette Cuddahee. (I don't know how to add my link) I just started last week putting on some of my creations and those that were altered. My fave product is at you spica's and glaze pens for adding detail. Can't wait to get my zig wink of Stella. I love a lot of different companies. The big ones are Hero Arts, and Stampin' up. Smaller ones are Endless Creations, IO and many others. I would love to sit down and stamp with Lynn my stamping bestie. She stands and I sit. tee hee. Have a good one!

Megan Hoeppner

Hello, Laura! So nice to e-meet you! I'm with ya on the inability to narrow down a favorite supply. At the moment, I suppose it's a tossup between washi and sequins. I'm off to follow your Pinterest board. Thanks for the link! :)

Cindy deRosier

I don't drink tea, but I totally want that mug. Cracks me up.

To answer your questions:
1) I'm a scrapbooker who also makes cards.
2) I'm on Pinterest - cindy_derosier.
3) My true love is patterned paper.
4) Right now I'm loving Simple Stories.
5) Tough question - I love scrapping with my friends Sheena and Jennifer, but I wouldn't turn away the chance to craft with a scrap celebrity, no matter who it is.

Megan Hoeppner

Cindy! Bette! How nice to e-meet you both. Thanks for the great comments. I've already followed both of your Pinterest boards. Love seeing your style preferences! :)

Megan, you have me drooling here! What awesome goodies you have shared with us....and now I need so many of them! HELLO!!!

I consider myself a long-time scrapper who occasionally makes cards (usually for challenges). Over the past year I have been taking mixed media classes as well to expand my depth!

I 'have' a pinterest account, but don't usually go there...already online too many hours in a day. Yankeegirl49

My fave crafting supply is patterned paper. I am totally in love with it and use as many as I can get away with on my pages, generally!

Oh, I have quite a few, but right now my fave craft companies would be Basic Grey, Simple Stories, Echo Park.

If I could sit down and craft with anybody, it would be Tim Holtz, or Becky Fleck, or Lynn Gahary. I have loved them for forever. But there are so many many talented scrappers out there that I would be happy to sit down with anytime!! Jen Gallager pops into my mind....

Renee VanEpps

Oh my goodness, so much beauty in one post!! I could spend my whole paycheck! thanks Megan!


1. I am both
2. I do not have a Pinterest account, but have been thinking about it.
3. My fave crafting supply changes all the time. (maybe that's why my craft room is so full lol). Right now, I really like the thin steel dies, & enamel dots.
4. Fave companies, G-45, Ranger, Tim Holtz, Authentique, & about 10 more ;)
5. Tim Holtz, & Jennifer McGuire.

Wow --I missed Sat --as I was gone -but wow what a lot of neat things to catch up with today - Monday. Love the HELLO theme and the woodseies from SSPrintshop . Neat gold script and Lionel' cup , then those pillows and neat charm . Love the name cards that are so handy for events.How about those Cosmos Cricket stickers --handy or what. Inspirations has those neat hello and friend stamps, and the mini placemats from Jellibean. Lawn Fawn with their Hello Sunshine always so cheery and bright.Love the phone die from Papertrey Ink --something about those phones seems to have hit my fancy this year.Of course Pinkfresh Studio has those attractive hello fresh press cards. Teresa Collins always comes up with the neatest things -- am always waiting to see what she comes up with next.Then along comes Megan and really makes us reflect as to why and what we are doing ---I guess I would have to say that I am a scrapbooker first and then a card maker , but I love any crafts --depending on the time and day. As far as Pinterest -- I am just learning a little about it and pinning some of what I really like but haven't quite mastered the ins and outs of Pinteret -- still working on that. Looks like everyone had an intereting Saturday and I hope I'm not too late to enter my two cents and possibly get a chance to win.. Sure am learning a lot more computer savvy since I found all the scrapbooking stuff on it. WHAT FUN Hope everyone is having a great day -- I know I am. Thanks



I love scrapbooking and cardmaking (scrapbooking is my first love). I'm on pinterest http://www.pinterest.com/bmeilak/. Ooh so hard to pick a favorite supply but I'll narrow it down to patterned paper, stamps and washi tape (although enamel dots and bakers twine also make frequent appearances. :)) My favorite companies (yep can't narrow it down to just one here either lol) are My Minds Eye, Simon Says Stamps, Hero Arts, Simple Stories, Echo Park and Bella Blvd. I love scrapping with my friends but if I could get a chance to scrap/stamp with Jennifer McGuire, Laura Vegas or Lisa Bearnson I would be in heaven!!

TracyM #6773



My name is Tracy and I am mainly a card maker, dipping my toes into Project Life scrapping, with my 1st PL page completed at the weekend. I'm on Pinterest and tend to lose hours of my life when I go to visit. My Pinterest board is found here http://www.pinterest.com/tracym6773/.
My favourite crafting supply is textured card stock, it is a staple that can be used as is, punched or stamped, it is a part of pretty much all of my work. Bling comes a close second, whether it is in the form of rhinestones or glitter - LOVE IT!!!
My favourite crafting company ... that's a tough one!!! Love and use lots of Ruby Rock-It/Bella/Fundamentals, Kaisercraft, Couture Creations & Helmar, because they are great Aussie companies and more accessible for me to purchase. I also love using Core'dinations cardstock, American Crafts Thickers alphas & glitter and Glitz Design. Companies that I'm REALLY keen to try include Paper Smooches, Doodlebug Design, Simon Says Stamp and Spellbinders ... I have to stop now because I have such a long crafty wish list. I have lots of crafting idols but my choice would have to be my Mum & Dad!!! We haven't been able to visit with them for a couple of years now (our phone works hard keeping in touch each day) and they are so supportive of my crafting that they got up at 3am to join me in an online crop class, even wearing their crown & tiara with me!!!

THANK YOU for your post today Megan!!! It has been FUN & INTERESTING :)
