Tiger Print "X", Best Creation Papers, Cricut Cartridge Rentals, Custom Orders & Bulk Discounts

Alright all you LSU fans out there... have I got something FUN for YOU!!! Xyron has come out with NEW Animal Print 1.5" Create-A-Sticker (most of you know it as the Xyron "X") in Zebra, Giraffe and...wait...wait...YES, TIGER SKIN PRINT!!! Whooo hooo!!! You can find it for sale on our website under the Adhesives Tab. I LOVE IT!!! Of course, I HAD to have one for my very own!!!

We have more new Best Creations papers in: gorgeous Asian-themed papers that have the sealed glitter accents on one side and a print on the other side of this heavy weight paper. We have restocked some of the popular ones that we had run out of, and also got in what I call Family Den paper, which is two pages that when put together appear to be a scene of someone's living room (see images above post), complete with a window looking out into a beautiful sky scene, and a sideboard with pictures of a palm tree and beach shells, and a small plant. On the opposite page there is a small cluster of three pictures--one a seashell, one a palm tree, and one a sky scene. I absolutely LOVE these two papers, and cannot wait to create something with them. Just looking at them I get tons of ideas!!!

We are putting the Custom School papers up on the website soon, so be looking for your school. If you don't see it, please e-mail or call us to see if it is available but not yet on the website, or maybe just out of stock.

Also, remember that Scrappersaurus RENTS CRICUT CARTRIDGES locally for three (3) days for only $5.00. That's right--ONLY FIVE DOLLARS for three days of cutting out any and all images you can imagine. We currently have about 36 different cartridges, with some having more than one on hand (from combining the Northshore and Southshore stores' stock). These are both alphabet and image cartridges. Check out the website to see which ones we have already. And, of course, more are on the way!

As usual, we are constantly getting new products in and constantly researching to find you the best products at the best prices. Remember, WE HAVE LOCAL DELIVERY NORTHSHORE AND SOUTHSHORE for our customers. All you have to do is place your order and in the Comments section, put DELIVERY. OR, just e-mail us ( or call us (504-258-1718) and we can get your order right out to you. Plus, we still do custom orders, as well as bulk discounts for those of you who are creating invitations, cards, or simply purchase in large quantities for your scrap group or students. All you have to do is ask!!!

Well, I'm off to do more research and place more orders. For those of you attending the crop this weekend, remember you can still stock up on adhesives, tools, and cardstock from us beforehand so you won't go over budget while there. We will not be attending that crop this time. We look forward to hearing from you, and wish you a wonderful week.

Until next time, happy scrapping and stamping!

Remembering Senator Kennedy & New Products

I don't normally talk about political things in this blog, but I just wanted to pay respect to the late Senator Edward M. Kennedy. His list of accomplishments that are well-known to most of the world is long, but there is another one that many do not know of. He was a real person, and helped real people. I know firsthand, because he helped ME. About 25 or so years ago, I was having an extremely difficult time getting assistance for my son--who was born with an extremely rare condition--and kept getting the runaround, instead of help. Every agency I turned to, it seemed, wanted to pass me off to another agency, and nobody wanted to help us. After much frustration and many tears, I wrote to Senator Kennedy's office, and they personally called me to speak with me and see what our needs were, and to see how they could help. They said the Senator felt it important that my son get the assistance he rightly deserved and so badly needed, and so they were calling to find out more details to see what they could do. With their help and knowledge of different agencies and departments, they were instrumental in putting me in touch with the right people at the right time, and I was finally able to get my son the medical assistance he needed in order to thrive and grow into the wonderful, self-sufficient and independent person he is today. Without Senator Kennedy's assistance, I doubt I would have found the people I needed on my own. So, thank you, Senator Kennedy and staff, for helping me to obtain the assistance I needed that allowed my son to grow up to be the wonderful, independent person he is today. It is greatly, greatly appreciated!

Now, for Scrappersaurus news...

We have new LSU Chipboard Albums in, along with more Bourbon Street and New Orleans Chipboard Albums. We have a new shipment of all sizes of red line tape, Glue Dots in all different sizes and types--including the Dot N Go dispensers, and the Pioneer Glue Sticks (the ONLY glue stick we recommend or sell). We also now have Long-Reach Button Punches, and are awaiting a backorder of the Long-Reach Ribbon Punches--you may, however, place a preorder for those.

Speaking of preorders, we are taking preorder and prepayment for the new ProvoCraft Cricut Gypsy, which is a handheld version of the Design Studio software that you just take with you to crops with your Cricut instead of dragging your laptop around, too. The Gypsy looks kind of like a palm pilot and is getting rave reviews. Please e-mail us ( or call us (504-258-1718) to place your order TODAY because trust me, there's going to be a BIG rush on these!!! To see it and get a better idea of whether or not it will work for you, go to this link:

We want to thank all of you who are continuing to support us through your online and phone and e-mail orders with us. We love you too!!!

Scrappersaurus Tips & Techniques finally here!

Okay, Felix and I finally got the first Tips & Techniques up on the website, so go to the website and check it out! We felt it would be a good "first" because it addresses something so many of us here in Louisiana worry about: Hurricane Preparedness for Crafters! Again, we welcome any comments or suggestions for this section. If YOU have something you would like to contribute, please call me at 504-258-1718 or e-mail me at

We now have a super sale section on the webstore, with products we are trying to clearance to make way for more new products. It's a good time to scoop up some items you've been thinking about getting, but haven't gotten around to until now. Remember that you can check out directly via the website, or you can call or e-mail your order and either mail a check, money order, or pay with a credit card over the phone. PLEASE DO NOT E-MAIL CREDIT CARD INFORMATION to us!!! While our webstore check-out system is extremely secure, regular e-mail is NOT!!! And don't forget that we have local delivery on BOTH the Northshore and Southshore!!!

Saturday was rather exciting for me, personally. I was invited to join the New Orleans Sassy Stampers for their monthly meeting. I finally learned how to make a piano hinge book, something Marlane Mayo had taught several times for us, but I was never able to participate to learn how to do it. It is really rather easy, once you "get" how to put it together. The Sassy Stampers were so kind and welcoming, and I am really looking forward to their next meeting. I will be the one leading the project, and I will be teaching how to make your own "shaker boxes". I'll post a pic of our finished project after that meeting next month.

Well, off to working on orders for new products for the online store!

Until next time, happy scrapping and stamping!

New Items on Scrappersaurus website!!! & Local Delivery of Scrapbook Supplies!

Felix has been working feverishly (yeah,if you can imagine THAT! LOL!) to add new items to the Webstore. Of course, I've been hounding him to do more, more, more, and he's doing his best. It's just going to be a slow process. Unfortunately, we can't both work on the website at the same time, so we just have to do things one at a time. Which is probably best, anyway!

Okay, so some of the new items he has added include STAR WARS SCRAPBOOK KITS, DOODLEBUG SUGAR PAPER IN DIFFERENT DESIGNS, ANIMAL PRINT XYRON Xs, PIONEER GLUE STICKS (the ONLY glue stick that we will sell... it's guaranteed!) and SPELLBINDERS MARDI GRAS EMBOSSING AND CUTTING DIES!!! So much more is coming. CHA, although we were unable to attend due to Scrap-N on the River, was a blast according to our personal friends and reps! We will be introducing, selling, and SUPPORTING some really cool things on the horizon! Just a HINT - CRACKLE EMBOSSING PASTE! WAIT until you see this!

And remember! We are doing LOCAL delivery or meet you at Starbucks on 190 for all you locals!

The Spellbinders Mardi Gras dies have been discontinued by the manufacturer, which is so sad because they are really fantastic, I think, and we only have a handful of them left. If you are not familiar with Spellbinders dies, they not only cut, but they emboss and can be used as a stencil, too. They are considered "universal dies" because they work with the Sizzix, QuicKutz, Revolution, Cuttlebug, and most other manual die cutting machines. For more information on their wonderful products, go to their website: and check out just what you can do with them. Of course, you can always order their products from US, for less!

On a more personal note, I want to tell you all about the most fabulous Italian restaurant I have been to in a LOOOOONG time! It is called Bosco's Italian Cafe, and it is located on Highway 59 near the intersection with Highway 1088, on the West side of the highway. Oh-My-Goodness!!! I had the lasagna which, when it was brought out to me, I couldn't believe the size of the portion served. I asked my waitress, Suzanne, (who was wonderful) if one person was expected to eat the whole thing. She simply laughed and then put down Felix's Veal something or other! It was the special, and OMGosh, it was! Well, when Felix took a bite of his, his eyes pretty much rolled into the back of his head and I thought he was going to drop right there. I took a bite of my lasagna, and I'm sure I did the same thing. The first thing it made me think of was growing up in a mostly Italian/Sicilian family, and how this was the CLOSEST I have EVER come to having restaurant food taste like "home cooked, REAL Italian" food. It was spectacular! If you are in the area, treat yourself to the finest we've ever had. Sorry, Mama, but this may be better than yours! LOL! When you go, please tell them you heard about their cafe on this blog. I promised them I'd tell them how wonderful they were, and that I would ask our customers to let them know they heard of them from US. As a business, it is always helpful to know where your best advertising comes from, and when it comes from another customer, YOU KNOW YOU ARE DOING A GREAT JOB!!!

Until next time, happy scrapping and stamping!
