Thankful for ALL of YOU!

Hello Creative Scrappers!

Did you know that we'll be posting our sketch #250 in about a month? Did you also know that Creative Scrappers has been providing you with inspiration for 5 years this April!? Yes, we have!

I'd like to say THANK YOU to all of you who have visited Creative Scrappers on Sunday mornings, those of you who have designed, created sketches, and followed us for all these years.

With that said, I'd like to announce that Creative Scrappers will be taking a break, or I will be taking a break from Creative Scrappers in hopes of changing a few things and also to get REJUVENATED! My heart hasn't been with Creative Scrappers for the past few months and that's not fair to you, our CS fans.

As as of march 3rd 2013, with sketch #250  that will be posted it will be the last reveal for Creative Scrappers for a while. The site of course will remain active, all sketches and all layouts will be left here to inspire you as we step away for a while.

I don't want this to be SAD ... but rather a celebration of quite the accomplishment! Creative Scrappers has been around for 5 years with 250 reveals, and one of the greatest sketch sites in the WORLD! It's just another step forward, and we will be back!

Thank you all for your inspiration and i appreciate you being part of CS with me

  2. Thank YOU for providing us with such fantastic inspiration. Sometimes you do need to take a step back, reflect, and come back stronger. May you enjoy this pause and hopefully it will bring you back to this awesome blog you created !

  3. 5 years is a huge accomplishment! I can imagine it can really take a toll on you. Thank you for all the inspiration you have provided us and I hope you find some much needed rest and relaxation. I'm sure we'll all still be here whenever inspiration hits again. ;)

  4. No problem Kristine! It's so understandable!! You've done such a great job but no matter how much you love to do something it can't help but get monotonous for you after such a long time. I've posted almost daily on my personal blog for 4 years and this year have also announced that my postings will be less frequent as honestly it's impossible to sustain anything actively forever. All the best to you & take all the time you need to recharge!!

  21. 5 years with dedication is a long time - I totally understand that you want a break.
    Creative Scrappers has kicked mojo all the way, and I'm sure it will be missed around.
    That said, I expect you to pop up somewhere else, with new ideas, and I can't wait to see where it will be.

    So I refuse to say goodbye - I say See you around!

  25. Thank you Kristine for being a wonderful inspiration to me. I may have only followed you for a short time but I adore yours. I will keep looking in and waiting for you to come back when you are ready. Needing change is something I understand as you know. Taking new paths is good. I wish you well and to be able to find what you seek. XXX

  28. Thank you for creating such a valuable resource! I love that you are able to search by number of photo, which makes it a lot more usable for me. I only just found your site, last week via Pinterest so I am sad to hear you are taking a break. But having blogged myself for a few years now, I can understand the need for a break. Enjoy and may you find the refreshment you are looking for and need! Thank you for keeping the site up so I can use it in the future.

  29. Kristine - I am sad that you are taking a break - in a selfish way! I love this site, visit it often and am truly inspired by your wonderful design team, sketches and LO's. Thank you for all you do - it has been a pleasure to have designed for you and to have become one of you "scrappy" on line friends.

    You are a gem - can't wait for you to come back!!
