Quoted from Donna Downey,

“No Idea is Original.”
With that in mind, I have decided with many friends and customers encouraging me it’s also time for the Junkie to have a kit club. It’s all the rage on the internet now and we have to give you what you are asking for. It’s a change for us, and something new, so please be patient as we go through this together. See below for the details…

Junk Bags
Inspiration is the Bag!

Each Junk Bag contains a hand picked selection of the latest and greatest scrapbook junk; like coordinated patterned papers, textured cardstock, rub-ons, ribbons and fun embellishments. Each Bag contains enough Junk for several projects. We promise to keep it interesting by making sure that each month will be something different and fun.

The first 20 customers to purchase a 3 month subscription will get a beautiful Exclusive Junkie Canvas Tote for Free!

Another Junkie of the Month...Robin Emswiler

This month the Designer of the Month is Robin Emswiler.
Be sure and visit her blog often so you can see her creativity at work!
Share a favorite photo of yourself.

Q. What part of the Houston area do you live in? What do you love about living there?
I have lived in the Humble area since 1980. I enjoy being close to my family & friends and the church I grew up in and still attend.

Q. What is your 'day' job?
I am a stay at home mother.

Q. Describe your scrap space. (dedicated room, dining room table, closet, etc...)
I have a large closet upstairs that I have converted to my scrap area. Of course, I could use more room, but I luv having my own space even if it’s small.

Q. How did you start scrapbooking?
I was given a scrapbook kit for Christmas in 1997. It worked out great because I just had a baby and needed to get started.

Q. How long have you been scrapbooking? 11 years.

Q. How often do you scrapbook?
Not often enough, but usually a couple of times a month.

Q. How long does it take you to create a layout? It takes me at least a couple of hours, but I always have to go back & add my journaling, so I guess you could say I have some pages that aren’t completely done.

Q. What is your favorite product line right now?
I really like Little Yellow Bicycle right now.

Q. Describe your Scrapbooking style?
I’m usually pretty traditional, but sometimes I let myself color outside the lines. I’m also a trendy scrapper because I luv experimenting with new products & techniques. My pages have definitely evolved over the years & changed as the industry has changed. I’m a 12x12 scrapper and my pages are usually about my favorite subjects (my children).

Q. Share a favorite layout & why it's your favorite. Be sure to make note of what products you used.
This LO is my favorite right now. I like it because it’s “girlie”. It has flowers, glitter and butterfly accents and a really good picture of my daughter and her friend.
