We are so super thrilled to introduce our new SBC Design Team. At SBC, "we are making crafts and saving memories one technique at a time." We have daily themed posts to bring you lots of fun and creative tips, techniques, and tutorials to use with all your paper crafting projects.

Also, we have a sponsored video tutorial challenge every 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month, for us to learn fun ideas and for a chance to win great prizes. And we also have our own Facebook group **, Scrapbook Blessing Club found HERE.  Our team  will be bringing you great tips, sites to look at and online deals each and every day.

***to play with the games at SBC Facebook Group, you will have to be a member, but the design team will be accepting memberships as fast as we can!

So please take a few minutes and hop along with us. Check out all the talent these ladies are contributing to our Club. You should have hopped over from the Scrapbook Blessing Club, which is the start of our hop.
