Video from Blue Moon Scrapbooking

I am so excited to share a video from one of my favorite online scrapbooking stores; Blue Moon Scrapbooking. The folks there are wonderful people; they even call to let you know your order is on the way—most of the time the same day you order it!  They have just started carrying Blue Fern Studios chipboard, and they've made a fantastic video that showcases our products. Take a look and stop by their website for a little shopping, too! ;-)

I know you will appreciate the attention to detail I’ve given these designs. If your favorite scrapbooking vendor doesn’t carry Blue Fern Studios products yet, please ask them to!

Check out our website store at, and let me know what your favorite designs are. Follow my blog and comment on this post (below) by Sunday, January 6th.  I will  randomly draw one winner on January 7th. One lucky winner will get a prize of some of my favorite chipboard designs (seen below):
