My dad is such an awesome guy. Last week, he called me to tell me that he had come up with a new slogan for my I Teach Scraps business.
He asked if I remember an old TV show called "Have Gun, Will Travel." I said "yes," and he said that I should use "Have Cricut, Will Travel" for my new business slogan.
It pretty much sums up what I've been doing lately, so I might just have to use it.
Thanks, Dad!


I am currently designing a new class for all you Cricut users! I hope to offer a class on using Design Studio, the Cricut software that allows you to do things such as weld letters together and cut words as one piece.
Because I will need access to a laptop to teach this class, right now I will only be able to offer this one at the Precious Treasures store as Amy has bought a laptop just for this purpose.
I will let you all know as soon as I have my first class scheduled.


I've scrapped for more than 15 years, and taught scrapbooking for almost 5 years, but last week I finished my first custom for-hire scrapbook! It was a graduation book for a woman whose daughter graduated from Gretna High School on Sunday.
It happened strangely. She had never scrapbooked before and came into Precious Treasures, with iced coffee in hand, to ask the store owner, Amy, to help her. Amy wasn't there, but I had just finished a private daytime class and just happened to be there. After a few moments of talking, I realized that she probably just needed someone to do it for her. I've always wanted to do some for-hire projects, so I volunteered.
It was very fun and I'd do it again in a heartbeat, especically to see the look on the mom's face again when she looked at my work.

Welcome to the I Teach Scraps Blog!

Hello! I am excited to have my own blog site. This is way cool.

I'll also through a little of my personal life in for fun.Feel free to comment, ask questions, email me, ask me to post pictures of your projects, etc. Just let me know how I can help!
