Paper Secrets 

Paper Secrets is an online scrapbook store located in Southern California.

I had been home with my son for a few years & was missing the challenge of work. Combining my love for scrapbooking & working with numbers with an interest in learning more about web design is how Paper Secrets came to be. I've learned ALOT & met some really AMAZING ladies along the way.

We do our best to offer the product you love most & always welcome special requests. Be sure to check out our blog for our monthly challenges, prizes & inspiration for our talented team of designers.

Paper Secrets is providing this lovely Teresa Collins kit to our 2nd place winner:

The Memory Nest

Hello Scrap Our Stash followers. I am Leslie the owner of The Memory Nest and I am thrilled to be sponsoring SOS this month. I am a stay at home mom turned small business owner. Raising my children for the past 11 years has been an amazing journey. In June of 2012, I decided to combine my SAHM duties with my dream of owning a scrapbook store. That began my small business venture of opening an online craft store to share my love of scrapbooking with you. I truly enjoy connecting and sharing with other scrapbookers! Hope you will stop by and say hi! and...

The Memory Nest will be providing our 3rd Place winner a $15 gift card to go shopping, and we all like to shop!!!!

Moving right alone...

We are excited to announce and welcome our 
March Guest Designer
Denise Luscan
"Happy Birthday SOS! My name is Denise Luscan. I live in Florida with my Husband and our
5yr old son. I was introduced to Scrapbooking when a friend at work shared her new hobby
with me about a year after my son was born. I was immediately hooked! I have always been
into crafts but with a new baby and tons of photos, Scrapbooking soon became my favorite.
I just started my blog in September and have been enjoying being a part of the lovely Scrapping
community and playing along with all of these fun challenges. My style is pretty much CAS but I
am hoping to try new things and get a little messy this year:). 
Thanks you so much to Scrap Our Stash for having me as a Guest Designer!"
My Blog:  She Creates kick off our Birthday Celebration…
 GDT Denise has created this fabulous Birthday inspiration to share with you:
This is what Denise shared about her layout:
"I wanted this layout to be fun, colorful and definitely convey BIRTHDAY so I
had to incorporate balloons! I thought of a Page Drafts sketch that was the
perfect inspiration for my LO (see my blog for link). The pictures are from
my little cousins 2nd b-day and I used mostly AC Hip Hip Hooray paper."

Thank you so much Denise for designing with Scrap Our Stash and being part of our celebration this month!!!
