When Can I Watch for Posts that I LOVE So Much?
- Monday: Monday’s are kinda Manic, so we will only be posting things that will give you pick me ups! You will RARELY get a post from us on Mondays because time is precious, BUT, THIS Monday (April 30th) we are posting our first VERY Special ARS EXCLUSIVE that will answer the #1 question I receive in the ASK Megan section or emails that I get – EVER. You can NOT Miss Monday’s Post! For the most part though, Monday’s will be an “off” day that you won’t hear from us too much!
- Tuesdays: You are going to continue to love and Enjoy Tuesday Tutorials that will show all kinds of wonderful project ideas using a variety of tools, papers, supplies, die-cutting machines and MORE…They just keep getting better! 🙂
- Wednesdays: Check THIS Out! Every Wednesday I’m going to be posting a 3 minute or less video showcasing some kind of product! It could be ANYTHING! Viva Decor Magic Pens, Silhouette Cameo, Markers, Favorite Papers, ANYTHING at all! Just something so you can see What’s OUT there (It’s definitely an ENABLER alert so don’t have your hubby’s block me! LOL)
- Thursdays: TNT Thursdays these TNT videos are EXPLODING with Tips and Tricks! Every Thursday I’m going to post little tips or tricks that I have found that work just FABULOUSLY whether you’re a paper collector or hard core scrapper, I’m sure you’ll find little pearls of help in these 3 minute or less videos! 🙂 Thursdays will also be the release days of our different classes, workshops and NEW Kits so watch for those!
- Fridays: We are calling this FREEBIE FRIDAY for a reason! Every Friday I am going to have a FREE Digital download for you my faithful friends and followers! I have a LARGE library filling up preparing for such an event and we will be giving away helpful resources, tools and even my new line of SVGs that you can use with your eCraft, Silhouette Cameo or SD, Pazzles, Sure Cuts A Lot or Make The Cut Software!
- Saturdays: Once a Month I am going to CONTINUE Make Someones Day Saturday! We will have different Challenges and surprises On Saturday every Month and for May we are going to host that on May 5th, so be prepared to make something to MAKE Someone Else’s Day!
- Sundays: Enjoying Life’s Moments this is where I’m going to take more time posting a little more about the personal sides of life. These posts may involve something crafty, or something about the kids, or a personal struggle, or a goal I want to achieve. These posts wont happen EVERY Sunday, but watch for them from time to time! 🙂 I hope you enjoy them! 🙂
You SAY Exclusive Content but what does THAT Mean?
- Hehehee! I’ m honestly so excited about what we have up our sleeves!! Britten and I have been working on ALL kinds of fabulous tools and guides to help you further your creativity, save you time, save you money, and help you even earn a little bit too! You’ll just have to trust me when I say – You’ll want a binder to print out and keep ALL these downloads!
Prizes and Giveaways:
- May 5th is National Scrapbook Day 2012 – so I’m going to have a FEW prizes for those who participate in our Make Someones Day Challenge! So start thinking now of a card, a scrapbook page, or something else you can MAKE to Make Someone’s Day!

Happily Scrapbooking & Crafting My Memories~S`andra V.
I just enjoy your emails and videos so much! They are so inspiring! And I am so excited about all you new plans! One thing that has been heavy on my heart, though, is that you shared that you and your kids moved away from your husband for a while. I want you to know I have been praying for you and so hope things work out for your family. -Liz, a fan in PA
