Hello & Welcome to Scrap It Girl’s site.

My real name is Kimberly Congdon and I live in Wisconsin. I am a paper craft instructor, designer, retailer and party planner. I started Scrap It Girl January 2008, after hosting my 1st paper crafts class in my home classroom. Ever since that first class I have expanded my studio and classroom space, added a mini store, and I now teach between 3-5 classes per week. I also sell kits, place orders, teach at other locations, host parties, crops, and have 2 other crafty websites. The best way to reach me is through my facebook page or email me at scrapitgirl@wi.rr.com Thank you

Favorite Things Friday~Punches


What’s your favorite paper crafting punch to use?  I have a few that I use more than others, but that doesn’t mean I want to get rid of the ones I don’t use that much.  Punches are easy to bring with when going to a crop or teaching a class.  I also love how easy they are for kids to use.  I love my Martha Stewart punches and tend to reach for them the most.   Here are just a few punches that some of the design team enjoy using.

Up, Up & Away~

Every time I see a Hot Air Balloon I think of Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz.  Poor girl missed her ride. Oh well I have 3 hot air balloons to share with you today.. and they are not going anywhere. I love them. Unique Laser Designs has by far the best embellishments ever. I made a tag, a mini album, and a wall décor project.  I have also taught one class using the hot air balloons.   Here is a look at 3 of my projects I created using the Hot Air Balloons along with a few other embellishments from Unique Laser Designs.

I have new wheels!

Today I am showing you another fabulous product by Unique Laser Designs that you may not of seen yet.  Take a look at this puzzle box.   I just love that you can easily connect it together after embellishing each side.  It is so much easier to decorate compared to orking on a solid cube or block.

I decided to paint each side gold.   I plan to distress the edges and I wanted to colors to match the Tim Holtz paper I used.


Here are the pieces before I got started.
You can piece it all together & paint or take it apart.
I used gold paint to cover each side.
I love the wheels from Tim Holtz.



Hinges from Tim Holtz.



Tin Star & a Door Fixture on two of the sides.


I added one of the ULD mustaches as a layer to the Tim Holtz Ruler.


I love the variety of Gears from ULD.



the top view.


Gears and wheels.. I added a vintage key and a key from Tim Holtz.


Although the inside is empty and I glued it all shut.. it is really interesting to look at and everyone that sees it has to push it to see if it really moves.. & YES it does.. It is a conversation piece in any room .. and if you Love Unique Laser Designs and Tim Holtz you can now see how well the two go together.  So if you have wheels.. you need to order a box.  The best part is all of the screws went through the wood sides with out any problems.. so those wheels are meant to last.. even though I did add extra adhesive.  I hope you enjoyed seeing another side of Unique Laser Designs.. I love that their is finally a hollow box that makes using all of our embellishments so much easier & fun.
