Scrap & Easel! I think I am in love!

Hello, friends!

I had noticed online that there was a new Scrapbooking tool was coming out and so I took a look(which always costs me lots of money). It is called the Scrap & Easel!

What caught my attention most about this terrific tool is that makes taking photographs of your layouts much easier and as you all know I like easy! My least favorite and most time consuming photograph subject is the scrapbook layout. In fact, one of the reasons I rarely do doubles is because photographing doubles are a nightmare! However, the Scrap & Easel solves this problem for me completely!

Here is the layout I made for Everyday Cricut. You can see the Scrap & Easel in action!


Thanks for stopping by today! I just love sharing new things with you guys!

I will be back here tomorrow with another project made using the new machine. It is made with the NEW Cricut Decals!

Have a great day!!

I've had mine for a week and haven't taken it out of the box yet! I know I will want to play with it right away and I don't have time this week to make that happen. It will absolutely be going to the weekend crop with me next weekend!!

I think the Scrap Easel would be pretty handy for classes also. I always need a place to display the layout we're working on. I love the idea!

That is so neat.... that is why I don't show any scrapbook pages on my blog really... it's toooo hard to take a photo... Now I gotta find this product.... unless you can tell me where you got it from??? Hummmm? :o)
By the way... your layout looks wonderful! :o)

I saw this on some of the blogs from the Stampede and I just think it would be so helpful for me with my spinal and arthritis problems. It's certainly on my "getting this" list!

Cute layout for Ethan's 6th!

Wendy (aka Roo) said...

TFS, I was kind of wondering what this was all about. Your photo looks great!

missionofjoycandles said...

I am confused as to what other purpose the scrap & easel would be used. Could you please explain all the uses for this tool?

Cynthia B. said...

Well, it looks great, but I found a price and it seems pretty high. Other than taking pics of projects, what other uses have you found?
Thanks for the info!

Kasondra said...

Totally on my want list now! Awesome and a great display piece to!

sallyP said...

The scrap & easel looks like a great tool! I'll have to get one.

Ladies, I want to add that the maker of the Scrap'n Easel also make the Scrap'n Tote--a binder system that holds and transports your Cricut cartridges, books and overlays. I have 2 that I love, but most of all, I want to commend the customer service of this company. I recently contacted them to ask a question about my order, and their response to my issue far exceeded my expectations. I will have no issues placing another order from this company. Both products can be ordered from ContainYa Crafts Ltd.

Now--all that being said--Great layout!! And it was photographed beautifully!

Oh, boy, another new gadget for me to look into.....thanks for the info.

Kristen Ann said...

Just love when you find new tools & share with us. Thanks!

Joni Lynn said...

the easel looks like it would make it so much easier to do your layouts, especially if you are doing two of something, and even if you're making the two page layout, just to see how they will look together, what a neat idea. Maybe someday it will be in my scrapbook room. Looks like a neat addition. I did watch the video, thanks again.
