Super Challenge Saturday & Up Close with Modern Sugar Blvd.

Good Morning everyone! I am so excited about this week's challenge because I have been given permission from the Sugar Momma herself, Candie, to offer you the free digi image Shop Gal for the challenge. Here's the coolest part... if you've already created your entry for the challenge that was posted on Modern Sugar Blvd which ends tomorrow, you may upload your entry to SCS or direct me to your blog and use what you've already created for this challenge, too!

This is a mini image that is the link to the actual image on Modern Sugar Blvd. Please click on the link to download the image. Then create something fun, fresh and sweet with this pretty gal. Use the keyword BLOGC8 on SCS or leave a comment here or on Joni or Gabby's blog so we can see. The prize is 2 Modern Sugar Blvd digi's that I have ready to go to the winner. You have until next Friday night by midnight EST to post your entry. Have fun!!



But before you head off to play with your image, I am so happy to get to introduce to you to Candie. She was so sweet to agree to an interview. Joni did an interview of Marie with TGF and I thought that was such a fabulous idea. It made Marie so much more personal to me. I wanted to give you that same feeling, get to know Candie and how wonderful she is!

Thank you Candie for joining me here today on my blog!

How long have you been papercrafting?

I have only been papercrafting for the past couple of years. So I still have a lot to learn! But that's what makes it so fun as I enjoy learning things from others and that's why I'm also so excited to have such a big DT. As all the Sugars are sweet and everyone single Sugar has a different talent...

What inspired you to begin Modern Sugar Blvd?


Well we wanted to make MSB not your average stamp and scrap shop. Lots of different unique things that you won't find everywhere else!! Something different, fresh, new and fun!!

Tell us a little about you.

I'm just your average everyday girl! I'm a pretty simple person. Ok... Enough about me... Let's talk about the "Sugars".. As they are the ones who really holds the blvd. together!! Without Ami, Anita, Brandi, Cassie, Crystal, Diana, Georgia, Jana, Jodi, Joni, Lindsay, Mandy, Mary, Melissa, Michele, Rachel, Sharon, Sue, Tenia, Valerie & Wendy MSB would not exist!!And our artists!! Every single line that we offer the artist has their own story for that line that has touched my heart in some way!

Where do you hope to take Modern Sugar Blvd? What can we expect to see in the future.

Well so many stamp & scrap companies start out small and go large and go large fast. Our goal is not to go to the extreme as I feel sometimes when you go that route you lose the closeness that the small company offers!! And to me it's about creating memories for you and for the person that you're giving your creation to. Because every card or creation really does have a story to tell. And a handmade card truly is priceless as it comes from your heart! Our #1 goal is to provide you all with unique products to help you create that moment!

We will also offer other unique gift items for you and for you to gift to someone else. Things that tell a story or touch my life in a way that I want to be able to provide that option for you all too!! Yes, I know this is not the normal scrap and stamp thing to do.. But we're going to be doing it!!
And we will also be offering our own private line of products!! <--- We can't wait to roll these out in the next couple of months! We hope you will think they are as sweet as we do!!
Overall we really want MSB to be a place you can come, hang out, get some really sweet ideas that will make you create happy!! So if you have a smile on your face after you leave the blog or the store.. Then we have done our job!!

From One Sugar To Another Sugar... Create and Be Happy!
