Fabulous quality and screenprinted with LOVE.

Now let’s talk about one of our new CELEBRITY artists..LOL. All my artists are celebrities in my eyes. Oh how I love them all so!
Meet MISS MINTABELLA.. known as MISS MINT.. or known as my cousin PAM. Her bio will ‘splain how we crossed paths.. a little weird I must say and SHOULDA COME SOONER!!! As you all may know, I have been working diligently for a LOOONG time on our new website WWW.SCRAPPINGBELLA.COM! This eagerly anticipated LAUNCH will be *fingers crossed* on November 1st or sooner! SOO.. to appease my scrappers, MISS MINT and I have collaborated and made a PHENOM starter selection of SCRAPPY stamps… they will be called SCRAP ‘INK stamps.. She has come out with AMAZING concepts, and unfortunately her wit and humor are almost identical to mine so BEWARE of the most PHENOM SCRAP ‘INK stamps to come!! So here’s a 40 image TASTER of what will be a HUGE collection by November! Remember. These stamps are HYBRID stamps meaning you can use them both in cardmaking and scrapbooking. I have made sizes of the stamps that will mostly fit both a scrapbook page and a card.. so STRAP YOUR SEATBELT on and ENJOY!
Meet my cuz PAM. Is she not STUNNING? she looks *exactly* like ME! (LOL). and here is what she has to say
“Shout out to the stampin’ sistahood! My name is Pam but I’m probably best known as Miss Mint, at least to those in the digital scrapbooking world. I am the owner and lead designer at PEPPERMINTCREATIVE.com, an online shop specializing in original digital and hybrid scrapbooking supplies. I have been a graphic designer for some time but when I accidentally stumbled upon digital scrapbooking 4 years ago, it was love at first “click”.
Now I spend my days (and sadly most of my nights) in my jammies under the glare of my monitor uttering profanities at Photoshop as it unexpectedly shuts down on me mid design. It’s the best.
You can also find my designs on SCRAPBLOG.COM and thanks to my awesome design team, layouts and projects featuring my designs have been known to appear in quite a few national and international books, magazines, and idea books.
When I am not working (which is never), I am usually pretending to be a photographer, or pretending to work out at the gym.
So you might be wondering (or you might not, but I will tell you anyway), how Emily and I may have crossed paths. I was going to tell you an exciting and elaborate tale, but the truth is, we’re COUSINS (how’s that for nepotism?) and the only truly bizarre part of the story is how long it took us to realize that we could collaborate in some way.
It was my second or third visit to the MOUTH WATERING CRAFT OASIS that is the official Stamping Bella store here in Toronto that we finally sat down and discussed. Bella to Mint. Mint to Bella. I left with a notepad full of demands ideas and ran home to start drawing. And Emily made the rest happen. And NOW I am SOOOO excited to be sharing my stamps with you and I am beyond grateful to Emily who, through this adventure, has helped me rediscover my passion for drawing and doodling. I am the luckiest SISTAH EVAH!”
so let’s see what Pam’s all about and her style:

SO let’s discuss SCRAPLINES. I think it is versatile, and SO MUCH fun to use! As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, these stamps look like simple outlines as an image but once you USE them, you will be AMAZED! Stamp on your SCRAPS, cut out (and by cutting, I, in no way mean PRECISELY! the wonkier you cut around the outline (scrapline) the cuter!), and apply.. thaSSSS it! thasss ALL! This is the first BATCH of these stamps.. ant they come in different sizes per package.. for inchies, scrapbook pages (large and substantial enough) and CARDS!! HERE WE GOOOOO!!
a sample using these buttons
you can punch holes in them.. thread TWINE.. SILK RIBBON.. the OPTIONS...

SCRAPLINES HOLEY SCALLOPY BORDERS (comes with a 3″ and a 5.25″).. you can layer them.. OMG
SCRAPLINES SCALLOPY BORDERS
again, these look like nothing as an image but once you stamp these on patterned paper.. WOWZA!
SCRAPLINES YUMMY HEARTS (SHADOW AND OUTLINE)
and a sample notice how they were cut (wonkily and cute!)
Ok, so as you see, miss MINT and I have been BiZzY.. Here are some CLEVERLY thought of SCRAPPY words.. you can even use them on a card………. LET’S GOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Remember, they are all LARGE (the image on my website does no justice).. here’s a sample of the size and the scallopy borders
SCRAPPY WORDS CAPTURE THE MOMENTS
SCRAPPY WORDS CELEBRATE LIFE
SCRAPPY WORDS DEAR DIARY
SCRAPPY WORDS EVERYDAY MOMENTS
SCRAPPY WORDS NO DAY BUT TODAY
IT’S ALL ABOUT ME
How about some MEMORY BLOCKS? hmmm? I named it memory blocks as a Play on Words.. write down your journaling so you don’t HAVE A MEMORY BLOCK later on!! LOL.. brilliant no?

That’s it for MISS MINTYPOO.. whatcha think? Do you want more in october? hmmmmm? leave a comment and let us know!
Now let’s discuss the DEEVINE adorable ELLIA! AKA GREENBEANBABY. We met coincidentally a long time ago regarding a certain company who “stole” our images.. she came to my rescue and fought for both of us! LOL.. and we just happened to cross paths again as I was just enamored with her talent and artwork. I just had to name these kidlets after Tyler’s friends..LOL They are SO PROUD!
Here’s a little bit about Ellia:
Ellia is addicted to, and in love with a few things. Her family, paper, a sharp x-acto blade, a brand new glue stick and a whopping cup of coffee!. It is with these necessities that she is fueled by the love to create cut paper illustrations/ Long after her kids are asleep, her nights are spent cutting out cutesie characters for various clients as well as art for licensing, and products for her shop. She is forever inspired by her family, childhood memories and retro goodness.
Ellia lives in Milwaukee with her talented husband, her two kids, two cats and a new puppy. They collect DVDs, video games, books, comics, toys and paper. They all enjoy superheroes, cartoons, and homemade cupcakes.
Now wait til you see some Ellia GOODNESS..
