Maya Road Arrivals and Layouts

We just got a new shipment from Maya Road on Thursday...so very fun new products. Great boxes and chipboard letters. We love the cute little tins that they package everything in...great for even more projects.
Love this new banner album. I think I'll do with the word Halloween. Banners are one of the hottest things going in paper crafting and mini albums right now.
Great rub ons.
Fun felt embellishments
Even little felt birds, the buttons and birds come in those cute little tins, too.
We also got in some fabulous new clear ribbons by Maya Road....they just didn't photograph so well. Two ribbons that are clear with black polka dots and scrolls and the other are colored with stars and flowers. It's sold by the yard and is kind of thin plastic almost rubber like material. They are just awesome, you have to come in and check them out. I will try and do a project with them in the next few days and see if the photograph better.
Plus, some great chipboard key chains with several little birds shapes including an owl and some sheer oval scallops perfect for the cuttlebug, alcohol inks and rub ons.

Now on to a couple of layouts and some question for you!!!!
I was recently asked by the Rapid City Journal to start a blog on scrapbooking and paper crafting. (If your interested you can go to http://www.rapidcityjournal.com/, scroll down on the home page to where you see staff blogs, next click on community blogs and one more click to the scrap n play blog.) So far I have not had a lot of comments left on it but lot's of views, but I posed a couple of questions on there and thought I would ask you guys, also.

What's your style? Tell me about your scrapbooking style...Do you scrap lots of photos on one page? Do you do two page layouts? Do you title your pages? Do you journal? Do you just use one photo? Do you consider your pages a work of art?? (You should)
I scrap with usually one photo or two. I like to work with 5x7's, 4x8's, and a couple of other unusual sizes. I don't usually journal, I let the picture speak for itself. Sometimes I spend hours on a layout and other times 5 minutes. I love to work with all types of products and tools.
For both scrapbookers and card makers, I'd like to know your favorite line of products? I love Fancy Pants, Basic Grey, Prima, and about a million more...but tell me about what you love and what you would like to see us carry in the store.
I'll leave you with a couple of my recent layouts and my new favorites...KI Memories Lace Cardstock on both layouts, Fancy Pants Glittercuts, and Tim Holtz tickets.
Please leave some feedback with your style and favorite products. Everyone that leaves feedback will have their name put in a drawing for a couple of sheets of KI Memories Lace cardstock and a couple of the Fancy Pants Glitter Cuts. We will draw a week from today. Thanks so much!!!

Left this on the Journal website too but it still hasn't gotten published: I love both of your layouts…I’m currently hooked on flowers as my favorite thing to embellish with, Prima flowers, Bazzill flowers, Petaloo flowers…pretty much anything I can stick a brad in kind of flower. I’m also loving the little blings, diamonds & pearls in different colors. I don’t know what I would consider my scrap style, kind of retro/vintage maybe. I love bright colors!

Great use of the lace cardstock and embellies. I'm going to have to start using and stop hoarding mine !! Can't wait to see them in person...
