Happy Fall Y’all

So ends a whirlwind of a summer. Kids are back in High School. My oldest daughter has left for college. Susan’s oldest daughter is now serving a church mission in Kentucky and the routine of life picks up where it left off back in May. There’s not quite a crispness in the air here in Florida, but Susan tells me that the leaves will be changing soon enough in Idaho. A perfect time to take pictures and get scrapbooking.

It’s been a while since we added new content to our shopping cart – or posts to the blog. The good news is that we’ve been busy “behind the scenes”. In the coming weeks expect posts about our Happy Fall Y’all quick crop and our Mega Mystery Crop!

We are back on track and so excited! Thanks to all our loyal customers for your repeat business. And welcome to the newbies! Glad your here. Please tell your friends about our helpful services. In the meantime, enjoy a few more weekends at the beach and start daydreaming about hosting your next scrapbook party.

Halloween Themed Scrapbook Party Ideal for Retreat Planners

You asked… we listened. ¬†Key Lime Crops proudly presents our inaugural retreat planner’s crop. ¬†While all of our crops can be adapted for a weekend long retreat, the Ghoulfriend Getaway¬†is ideal for retreat planners, store owners and scrapbooking and stamping consultants who go all out to plan retreats for their customers.

Let Key Lime Crops Help with Your Next Scrapbook Party

So, grab a friend, your scrapbook supplies, and a broom because you’re headed off for a spooktacular Ghoulfriend Getaway! ¬†We know that “ghouls” just wanna have fun and everything about this party is designed to be hauntingly fun! ¬†Anytime leading up to or just after October 31st would be a great time to host your scrapbooking retreat so don’t delay in purchasing your party plans. ¬†We are so confident that our party plan will save you time and stress that we are offering a money back guarantee. ¬†The Ghoulfriend Getaway includes a monster mash playlist and bewitching activities that will have you cackling with pleasure.

Since we’ve geared the crop especially for retreat planners, you’ll find loads of time-saving devices. ¬†Digital invitations, sample agendas, darling custom designed signs to set a bewitching mood in your crop room, original games with adorable printables, a to-die-for “ghouls just wanna have fun” make & take with exclusive, custom designed elements, ideas for an entire weekend of Halloween theme menus, printable signs for your eating areas (anyone like to join us in the Black Cat Cafe? How about the Bootiful Bistro?) and much more!

Seriously! You’ll also find our time-saving master supply list and organizers, as well as a daring digital kit to use with your decor or for your own personal scrapping. Now you can meet the needs of both traditional and digital scrappers. ¬†Make note as guests register if they will be bringing their laptop to scrapbook instead of traditional supplies. ¬†More and more scrappers are switching to digital, yet still love the fellowship of scrapbooking with friends. Instead of kitting up our ready-to-use make & take for everyone, digi scrappers can receive their make & take in the form of the quick page included! ¬† Every aspect of the Ghoulfriend Getaway is seriously spooktacular! Be sure to let us know the date and time of your next crop and we’ll post it here for others to find.

Finally – if you’re not a retreat planner you may¬†wonder if this crop is right for you… the answer is still YES! ¬†You won’t have any problem scaling back the ideas and simplifying our advice for a smaller group. So what are you waiting for? ¬†Call all your girlfriends and head over to Key Lime Crops for your very own Ghoulfriend Getaway!

Word Art All About Me

Word Art from Wordle.netJust discovered this great website called Wordle.¬† It’s easy to create customized word art about any subject you can dream of.¬† I was daydreaming about an All About ME crop, so this was the perfect inspiration. Hopefully you can get to know me a little better by looking at my personalized word art.¬† Try it yourself. You can customize the font, colors and layout. SO COOL!

Check back soon to see where these ideas lead.  I am feeling CREATIVE.  Better yet, join our Key Lime Times newsletter  to be the first to hear about our upcoming scrapbook party plans!

Happy Summer!

Girls Day Out -vs- Girls Night In

It’s not hard to find my Happy Place – it’s one of two places… at the Day Spa or scrapbooking my memores of my adventures at the spa!¬†

 

So I combined the best of both worlds and headed to the spa¬†¬†for a Girls Day out and completed the day with a Girls Night in – full of scrapbooking and laughs.¬† If you can’t make it to the Spa, then host your own spa party with our latest full-featured crop: One Spa-tacular Day!¬†

Here’s my completed crop layout:¬†

A variation of the included Make & Take Layout. To save time I used my Silhouette Cutter to cut the elements

 Find your Happy Place right around the corner at www.KeyLimeCrops.com. Then be sure to share your crop party photos with us in the gallery!

Will the UPS truck Ever Come?

decorative scissors were all the rage

Thinking ahead to National Scrapbook Day in May got me thinking back to where my scrapbooking adventures began. My dearest friend, and now business partner, Susan, and I were about to place an order for scrapbooking supplies that would change our lives forever!

Little did we know that ordering neon-colored cardstock, decorative scissors, punches and page protectors would turn into a life long friendship.

Those first few scrapbookings are among the ugliest creations I can claim. Full of poorly cropped photos on hideously bright acid-free cardstock complete with the only stickers available to us at the time.

It seemed like it took FOREVER for that first order of SB supplies to arrive. UPS was on strike and we were like impatient kids waiting for Christmas morning.

We owe it all to a good friend named Lisa who introduced us both to the “correct” way to preserve our memories. What was it like for you? We’d love to hear how you started this amazing hobby.

Better yet, recall how excited you were when you finished that first page and share that joy with a friend. Invite her over and help her scrapbook her first page. Whether you do it with, or without a Key Lime Crop party plan, it is a great feeling.

Free La La La La…

If Santa can make a list & check it twice, so can you!

You‚Äôre makin‚Äô your list, you‚Äôre checkin‚Äô it twice… when you wonder, ‚ÄúHow will I do all this and still have time to scrapbook?‚ÄĚ Oddly enough, that‚Äôs just what we were thinking here at Key Lime.

So to spread some holiday cheer and help us check off our goal to scrapbook through the holidays we have a present just for you! Download a FREE Quick Crop Sampler ‚Äď scaled back to make it easy to host a quick crop.

Our ‚ÄúHave Some Fun & Get It Done‚ÄĚ party includes both a printable invitation and a digital invite. We also have instructions for a fun twist on a traditional holiday party game. Encourage friends to bring any project they are working on that needs to be finished before the holidays; like making or addressing cards or finishing a handmade gift. Keep it Simple and make some memories with friends while you check off that to do list!
Life is sweeter when you celebrate it with friends! This crop is our way to say thanks for all the friends we have made this year and for your support!

Merry Christmas
Susan & Meredith
