Call for project photos and guest designers.

Altered Composition Book
Kristi has been browsing around some blogs this week and found some amazing projects using MyScrapChick patterns. So we thought it would be fun to feature some great paper crafters here on our own blog. If you would like to submit some photos of projects you've done using our patterns,  please send them to  In exchange for being a guest designer or allowing us to use photos of your projects on our blog, newsletter and website we'll send you free MSC product downloads.
We'd like to introduce our first  guest designer, Tammy Jennings, who's been doing some wonderful projects.
Hi, My Hi, My name is Tammy Jennings and I have been creating art and making crafts since I was a very small child. A few years ago my Husband saw the Cricut commercial on TV and decided that was what he wanted to get me for Christmas, I was less than thrilled. Until I discovered Sure Cuts A Lot, then I was excited. I asked my Dad to give me SCAL for Christmas and he did, I was able to start downloading free cut files that I found online.

Shortly after Christmas I discovered My Scrap Chick and WOW, it has been a long and happy love affair! I LOVE MSC files, they are so cute and easy to piece and you just have so many options. My Scrap Chick was the first company that I actually purchased a cut file from and since that first purchase I have made many many more. I think my favorite thing about MSC, besides the fact that the files are just so wonderful and creative, is that they really do piece well, rarely do you have to deal with teeny tiny pieces and if you choose to use a stamp for the face or draw your own it is so easy to do that. I also love that I can mix and match different collections and get completely different looks.

Thank You Card
Since that Christmas I have amassed a very large collection of MSC cut files, I have upgraded from the Cricut to an 18” Black Cat Cougar to cut with and I have added Make-the-Cut and Signcut software to my arsenal! I still get every excited on Fridays to get the My Scrap Chick email and see what is new! My Scrap Chick ROCKS!! ~ Tammy
Thanks Tammy! Be sure to visit Tammy's blog for more fun and inspiration.

Kristi's Recipe for Deep Fried PC

Anyone that knows me, knows I am NO cook, or even Suzie home maker for that matter. So if you mention Kristi and deep fried in the same sentence, there must be trouble to follow.

If you are reading this post, chances are you have a computer or access to one. Perhaps you have more than one computer with tons of precious photos of your loved ones, important software that cannot be replaced (like those that have been upgraded not to work with the bug machine) or amazing digital patterns that you have been collecting for years.

Imagine hanging out on your computer as you some times do. You are sitting there, doing what you do when all of the sudden sparks flare from the back of your computer and smoke begins barreling out from the side of the tower. That was my Monday!

What would be the first thing that goes through your mind? I can tell you that after feeling an immediate drop in the pit of my stomach, I praised GOD that I had backed everything up on my portable hard drive. Yes, PRAISE GOD!

Imagine loosing all those years of files I had created, my original designs. But more importantly, all the photos of my little girls, my husband, my family and the precious moments that had been captured digitally. Imagine them gone, all gone!

You see that actually happened to me years ago. I still have the computer, as one day I hope to get my photos off of it. But I learned my lesson.

I want to share this with you, my dear friends, because this has happened to me not once, but twice. The first time I wasn't so lucky, and I do not what that to happen to you.

We at My Scrap Chick are always happy to re-send you a file you may have lost, or deleted by accident. And if by unfortunate circumstance your computer dies....well, we will resend all the files we have on record for you.

We want to do our part to always be there for you if you need us, but no matter how much we love and appreciate you, we cannot replace the other precious content on your computer. So please, please, please....back everything up on another hard rive. It is not worth loosing.

We have 'save the tata's' and 'save the whales', now lets "save our PC" (precious content!!!
