I just saw in Instagram that Ali Edward's car got broken into. Who's stuff was stolen? I don't know her kids/husbands/boyfriends names....I just started following her a week ago.
KP's stamps are all samey same lately.
KP kicks ass! Nice try April! Your stamp artist is el-lame-o.
Haha I'm not the above commenter but KP stamps are kinda wack. It's okay if you like sentiments because she can't draw for shit how hard is it to type up a bunch of words in a neat font?!
looks like another scrapper has managed to spew up a &^%(load of products to fill a page on this one..yeeeww!http://imaginariumdesigns.blogspot.com.au/2013/03/a-lighter-shade-of-grunge.html
"Haha I'm not the above commenter but KP stamps are kinda wack. It's okay if you like sentiments because she can't draw for shit how hard is it to type up a bunch of words in a neat font?!"True, but once KP left SC they didn't seem to be able to even manage that!
October Afternoon. They have revealed ONE LINE. And it's March 19th. Two months after CHA. TWO MONTHS. At this point it would probably be best to save the other two lines for Summer CHA. I am just so sad. They are one of my favorites.
Who is going to watch Lisa Bearnson on HSN? I have way too many albums and 12x12 paper and I have no interest in PL. But I will probably tune in to see horse teeth.
So it's okay to post about DT members stores, but not past DT members. It's not okay to post about competing stores, yet SC tells their members to go to 2peas to sell their supplies. It's not okay to post things about products that take away from their site, yet people are posting about PL on HSN. If I only have $100 a month to spend on scrapbooking supplies, then there is a chance that I could see that thread on HSN on the SC board and spend my money on that instead of a kit/add on. So why are they allowing that post to go on?
@4:42OA is pathetic! I would love to hear again from someone "in the know" what is happening over there. They have always been slow but this is beyond slow.Other companies are already releasing mid-season lines and OA has shown us one. With no more in sight.I don't get how they stay in business, pay their employees, etc. They aren't selling anything except the stupid Friday shit.
Oh gawd, now Monica B is whining on the new scrapnyap board about selling her old SC kits. Monica - go away!Nobody wants to buy your old kits. I thought she was broke and has no money....why is she buying those kits each month and then not even using them. What a dumbass!
http://imaginariumdesigns.blogspot.com.au/2013/03/a-lighter-shade-of-grunge.htmlYou can tell she is from Australia! Look at the teeth! What product vomit!
Again lets all get drunk monday, call-in to HSN and ask Lisa if she is going to bitch slap the host!
Cos Australians have bad teeth? Right. Ignorant much.
"call-in to HSN and ask Lisa if she is going to bitch slap the host!"I would love to see that smug look wiped off her face.

March 19, 2013 at 7:22 AMIt might be product vomit but at least you can still see the photo and it's the main focus of the page.
It is nowhere near as bad as Tampon Dog
I haven't bothered to buy a KP set since her first one with SSS. They are all alike. SC's too. Hoping for fresh talent soon.

I am sick of all the releases, the new stuff is out before I can use up the stuff from the last show.
@12:03 I think the point is that OA tried to lie about not showing up at CHA. They said they had the flu instead of saying they either didnt have anything to show or that there may be something going on internally. Then a few weeks back they were on Facebook saying all sorts of sneaks were finally coming of all these lines they supposedly had, and then nothing was ever shown.
You cannot say Tampon Dog and then not explain what it means. Details, please!
http://websterspages.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8354ebd2869e2017d3e057cbb970c-piNever mind, I found it, wow!
So, Teresa Collins, Heidi Swap and Donna D are off on another junket abroad. This time to newzealand. What I wanna know isw ho is this Maggie Armstrong that they are headlining with? Anyone heard of her? Who does she design for? Is she any good?
I personally LOVE tampon dog. It cracks me up something fierce. And a great laugh is always welcomed. LOL!
So SC has these PL grab bags up for sale. I'd bet a lot of money they'll have those jacked up FREE calendar cards in them. WTF.
I can't believe SC is selling PL grab bags, when they still have people hanging around on the wait list.
I think her scrapbooking is amazing, but if I see Magda Mezawhatever post another layout with photos of flowers I'm going to puke. She's been using the same exact photos over and over on all her layouts.

anybody know what is up with jen kinkade resigning from the ILS design team? it sounded on her blog, like she wanted it clear that she was no longer affiliated with them. wonder what happened.
This is on their blog. I feel like this might be some excellent scrap gossip:In a view of the suspicions of copying some of the designs, we declare that we cut the cooperation with the designers. Please also note that each of us feels partly responsible for this situation. We would like to apologize for it. We also don't see any basis on which our company could exist so we decided to close ILS.
March 19, 2013 at 4:42 AMWho says they have to release a certain number of lines a year? I am sick of all the releases, the new stuff is out before I can use up the stuff from the last show."Here's the thing. They showed sneaks for three lines and then details for one of those lines. All many of us want is to see the detail of the two lines they have yet to show the promised details of. We're not asking for a mid-release. Just show us what ya got. Don't make time based promises if you aren't going to follow through. They post nearly daily.
What is ILS?
ILS= I lowe Scraphttp://www.ilowescrap.com.pl
ILS = I lowe scrapA polish scrap company that put oput some papers that we apparently copied from another designer. I forget who, but it was in the posts here a few back....
I think the copying of designs that ILS did has finally caught up with them and they had to close. I wonder what Anna-maria (one of the owners) will be teaching with now at events. Her classes show the copied papers in the sample pictures. She uses them on Dear Lizzy's Paper Party site too.It looks like the design team is being sure to distance themselves to avoid any liability.
Who says they have to release a certain number of lines a year? I am sick of all the releases, the new stuff is out before I can use up the stuff from the last show._____I don't think anyone would be commenting about the number of lines OA is releasing if OA hadn't said they were releasing 3 lines and flat out lied about the reasons their lines weren't unveiled at CHA.Their new douchebag PR guy called someone out at 2Peas for questioning the veracity of their flu story and claimed that the ONLY reason OA didn't show was the flu. Told people new lines would be available within days of CHA.Clearly, he lies as much in his position at OA as he did as a plagiarizer, I mean "reporter."OA may make cute products, but they have no problem lying to customer and engaging in the same unethical business practices they've gotten by with for however long they've been in business.You can cheerlead them all you want, but don't talk smack to people who are tired of being disappointed and lied to by this company.And yes, it's just papers and stamps. We get it.
Somebody is pissed that they didn't receive a free paper pad from Two Peas. Their thread got locked and they started another one. Popping the popcorn......http://www.twopeasinabucket.com/mb.asp?cmd=display&forum_id=10&thread_id=3227829.

Popping the popcorn......http://www.twopeasinabucket.com/mb.asp?cmd=display&forum_id=10&thread_id=3227829=====I think she's getting her panties in a bunch over nothing. Drama queen.
admittedly nosy comment:I was reading Ali Edwards blog about a chart system for her son. She mentions Chris and Tiffany. Who is Tiffany?
I don't usually get too excited about freebies because it's usually either something they want to get rid of or something I wouldn't buy for myself and not my taste.I am too picky that's why I don't sign up for kit clubs, I just want to pick out everything myself. Sometimes I wish I wasn't so picky though, I swear I am the slowest scrapbooker there is.
@ 7:44 - Tiffany is Chris' live-in girlfriend and the reason he ended his marriage to Ali. She worked with him and they apparently had a long term affair...
"tell me something good"seriously.... I think every website should take a look at their message board - if you need your paid DT to go online and make happy posts to push the negative ones down you should really just refocus on your customer service. PTI, SC, and now 2peas too? ughI don't expect every place to be a happy ray of sunshine, and I don't expect it to be all negative but a couple of posts are really no big deal.
That man shouldn't be allowed to speak to customers. Arrogance
What happened to ILS?
Lol at the peas moaning about all projects/videos/gallery being too trendy and looking the same.It really hasn't occurred to them that the reason the gallery isn't filled with two page 10 photos on cardstock Layouts is because it isn't popular these days?! Or the reason that there arent videos or endless sketches about cramming as many photos as you can on a page is cos it looks shit?!They should just use ficking photo albums and include a few written sheets of journaling in the back.
I have to agree on that count, PP. I don't like the look. I stopped once I realize I didnt' have to scrap EVERY photo, just every story I wanted to tell. Not only was it freeing, but I really think my scrapping improved dramatically. I don't think everyone scraps that way though (which is fine, I think it might just be "old school" now, kwim?)I asked on the ScrapNYap forum how people edit themselves and it seemed like it was a foreign concept. You know, if you write notes in TOO much detail, but don't want your layout/PL to be like a friggin' book down to what time you pooped that day: how do you edit yourself? The short answer was "don't". But once I add in photos to a PL page I don't want them overwhelmed by 900 things of journalling, nor do I want the entire thing to be photos. I want a nice balance.As far as the videos, I have thought they were same-y, but I more wished that everyone in a given week wouldn't use the gold dotted vellum from Dear Lizzy. I get it, it's new... let it sit a bit maybe so not every single GG is using it at the same time and we can see what you're doing instead of the fact that you've used the same product that the previous four people did this week.
that was really long... sorry. ((winces))
Wow BH shows us how to organize our plastics, using more PL supplies. Ching-ching $$ Ching-ching $$ Ching-ching! Dollar signs are flying everywhere!!!
I'm sad to see ILS go, I liked the blog. The design stealing was wrong, but I'll still miss the site.
I tried searching this blog for ILS and I tried google too, can someone tell me who they were allegedly copying? Thanks.
Is this why Ana-Maria decided to "retire" as a GG right after she was made a GG?
To answer the question from 11:55,The following quoted bit was copied from a previous comment on this blog (from 2/19 - 8:22 p.m.) about the ILS scandal. I saw the post at the time, and they were VERY similar, some papers in the digital line were pretty much EXACT rip-offs... of course now, the link to Ana-Maria's blog returns a 404 - Not found error."Anna Maria's I Lowe Scrap line ---> http://annamariawolniak.wordpress.com/2013/01/05/divine-this-line/Original patterns developed for Birds of a Feather/A House in the Hills ---> http://www.ahouseinthehills.com/ahouseinthehills/2011/11/28/birds-of-a-feather-patterns.html"ADDED: I found a couple of links to the images of the paper: http://annamariawolniak.files.wordpress.com/2011/06/divine-this-line.jpg?w=650&h=391Smaller image here (in case AMW realizes that the direct link to the image is still hosted by wordpress, even if it's not viewable through the blog)http://house-of-scrap.sk/kolekcie-papier-scrapbooking-potreby/851-divine-this-line-scrapbooking-i-lowe-scrap.html
hi, everyone- I'm new here, but what a place! Love it!I dont want to change the subject or nothing, but since I finally found a place I thought would be cool to ask, I've just gotta ask- WHAT is the lowdown on that Ursula from Scarlet Bird?!?! From what I understand from her blog, she's some religious nutso, her daughter got involved with some older man via internet, she went apeshit (again? or would you say apeSHITTER) and sent the poor girl to some extreme Christian brainwashing camp? All I know is that for someone who comes off as such a judgemental religious bitch, she's certainly ... um...high-minded?
Ania-Maria hasn't blogged in almost a week. She's usually more regular than that...like every other day or so. I think something went down that she doesn't want to discuss.Was it her who "designed" the ILS papers that were copies of someone else's design?
1.09 yes, she designed this line
Is that the same chick who is on the SC DT?
Thank you for all the details 1:00, I appreciate it!
How is SC not getting into this ILS fight with Anna-Maria? Not only did she blatantly copy those designs but it appears she copied SC's designs as well. I swear that design on the far left looks like a SC paper from their Abroad line. The B side was the yellow people pattern. Anyone remember that?
Eww, it looks like matted hair on the blue LOhttp://www.ahouseinthehills.com/ahouseinthehills/2011/11/28/birds-of-a-feather-patterns.html

"TheBiscuitScrap This user is under a 24 hour ban."WTF????????There are 24 Hour "bans" now at 2 Peas. OMFG!!!!!!!!
"biochempea Wow! A 24 hour ban? Was that because of TheBiscuitScraps' message above? I've never seen or noticed temporary bans being placed here at 2Peas before. ETA: now I see there are at least two other users from the first page have also been placed under 24 hour bans. I am really disappointed to see this level of heavy-handed control here at 2Peas. "
Link to the bans please.Yes I am too lazy to surf Two Peas
Nevermind. I found the thread. This is not going to end well and I am loving it...
Both threads on Two Peas got pulled. Somebody just started a new one, I'll copy it before this gets yanked:Well, Surprise, Surprise, the thread got pulled...Posted 5:54:05 PM by scrapcatz in General Scrappin'So, FIRST, you blame to customer for "misunderstanding" the promotion. NEXT, you freeze posts on the original thread. THEN, you ban Peas that posted on an associated thread and FINALLY, you yank both threads off the board in an attempt to just sweep things under the rug.
as you wish linkshttp://www.twopeasinabucket.com/mb.asp?cmd=display&thread_id=3227829&pg=1http://www.twopeasinabucket.com/mb.asp?cmd=display&thread_id=3227829&pg=2
and original threadhttps://www.twopeasinabucket.com/mb.asp?cmd=display&forum_id=10&thread_id=3227798
Looks like the 3rd thread got pulled already. The secret Garden Girls board has got to be going crazy behind the scenes.
Two Peas SUCKS!!WTF - they can treat their customers like shit and expect for us not to say something?I have news for them....there are lots of other online stores with better prices, faster shipping and excellent customer service.
I have 2 online stores I use regularly. No drama and the paper arrives flawless. The one time I ordered from Two Peas the paper looked manhandled.
The only reason I've ever bought from Two Peas is because they're close by and I get my package the day after it ships out. There are definitely better places that have superior CS and accommodate customers better.
Beginning of the end for the peas. Dumbasses.
Oh lawd, I love the drama. They need to get some of those nsrb types to do some posting on the gs board. Just for shits and giggles.Seriously though, banning? So stupid. Has anyone ever even been banned on nsrb? If there's ever anything ban worthy, I'd think it would be there!
Is the "designer" copy cat for I Lowe Scrap the same Anna Maria on the SC DT?
Looks like she's actually the owner?? Is it weird that she's a SC designer and owns a company they buy from??( I'm a bit new )But if it is her scrap ally's comment was harsh....
Yes....and the I Lowe Scrap post was deleted on S C
Here is the ILS post at SC. It's still there. http://www.studiocalico.com/community/studio-chat/topics/56346-is-i-lowe-scrap-closing
I have never ever agreed with anything Ally has ever said up until her point about ILS. She was making money off of other people's work. It is not harsh, it is the truth.
I'm sure the thread at SC about it will be gone tomorrow and another wave of "why was xxxxxx thread deleted?!!?!?!?!?!?!" will start up. At the same time, I am sort of curious if April will address it.
Ania Maria is the designer of those papers AND the co-owner of the company, together with Nulka: http://www.ilikegrey.pl/Nulka is also the owner of SODALICIOUS, another polish scrap company. I think SC had some SODALICIOUS chipboards on their kits. I don't know if Ania Maria is co-owner of this company, I don't think so.I bought at Sodalicious and the CS sucks. Never again. And the rubber stamps have great design but the rubber is too thin. bad quality
Nessa9116 and Kinnari post here. You can tell by their posting style and content from the ILS thread right now at SC.Hi girls!
I'm trying to catch up on the banning & excitement from the pea baord but did I read the above right, that biochempea was banned?
GeekPea responds, too long to copy & paste so here's the link:http://www.twopeasinabucket.com/mb.asp?cmd=display&forum_id=10&thread_id=3228019.
i don't think biochem is banned - i see a thread from her hawking a project.
Keep biscuitscraps whateverhernameis, off the scrap n yap board. I cannot stand to read her posts with all her information she has copied & pasted off the internet. UGH, please don't accept her membership.
blingqueen is not a "new" poster to peadom. She is one of the recent mouthy peas that might have just gotten herself on the temp ban...she is not new.
Nlh2314I saw on their blog that they are closing, but since it is translated to English I wondered if that was in fact true. Sometimes the translator function is a little off.. Since we have gotten their products in the past, I thought someone here might know. I liked their product, I hope it is not true.03/20/13 10:28amscrapallyI'm guessing it is true due the legal issues it likely is facing.03/20/13 12:15pmNlh2314Legal issues?03/20/13 12:22pmNinaCYikes, that sounds bad. :( I hope everyone involved is okay.03/20/13 12:24pmCaz Hancockoh no what happened? so sad03/20/13 01:03pmMollyFranceswoah! i just read the blog post mentioned in the original post. it seems like an unfortunate situation. :-/03/20/13 01:13pmRhonda NOh wow loved their stuff, hate to hear about them closing.ETA: I did not know any of this was going on I just knew I liked their washi and paper I seen featured at another store.03/20/13 01:36pmpiecesofmeSad to hear this :( I really enjoy their designs.03/20/13 02:02pmalesk555Real bummer for them....

It still amazes me how fast we forget indiscretions like this... it will eventually blow over and ILW is doing the right thing closing.03/20/13 10:51pmCaz Hancockso what does this mean? everything they had was copied? is it exact copies or is it just they chose something that is similar, i.e all the millions of chevron that all look the same out there? i have no idea as not been around03/20/13 10:57pmKinnariI feel bad for the designer whose work got copied too.And yes scrapally... I do agree with you that ILS is doing the right thing by closing.MandyB it is I Lowe Scrap .03/20/13 10:59pmMandybhahahaha thanks found it now was like lowes....a hardware store what!!! so tired!! come on end of the week!!! lol
sweetsierraWell....there's many ways of looking at it...but I feel bad for everyone involved, including the other designer(s) & ILS DT.Caz HancockSeirra i am the same, both sides have feelings i feel bad for them all03/20/13 11:08pmnessa9116Here Caz you can make your own judgementI Lowe Scrap : http://blog.ilowescrap.com.pl/2013/01/cha-reveal-no1-divine-this-line.htmlThe original: http://www.ahouseinthehills.com/ahouseinthehills/2011/11/28/birds-of-a-feather-patterns.htmlAlso the far left grey paper looks very similar to this paper from SC Abroad : http://www.twopeasinabucket.com/peamage/2722500-2722999/2722792_600x600.jpg03/20/13 11:32pmCaz Hancocksomeone sent me the link, and they could all be the same paper, crazy.It does look like the abroad one, but AC had it out first in the Kraft remember (loved that sheet)03/20/13 11:42pmUrsulaThose are pretty similar. I have to say though, that everyone is looking like everyone else all over the scrap world.03/20/13 11:53pmrosaliejbwell oh my, sad stuff, but not cool either! shame for all involved.03/21/13 01:15amLuckyJavaI really don't feel bad for "everyone involved" only the one who was copied. There's no reason for that- the internet makes it way too easy to catch these things, it really wasn't very smart. I do feel a bit sorry for the others associated with ILS that were duped by the person who supposedly designed "divine this line." They are awesome papers though! I hope the original designer starts to dabble in scrapbook paper designing!!03/21/13 02:40ampetitenoonieThis is very disappointing. When the original thread was started about them copying the designs, I stood up for them. I wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt, but alas, it appears the allegations were true. This is really unfortunate. I don't kow what people think gives them the right to steal someone else's intellectual property! I am embarrassed that I defended them in the original post to the extent that I did!On an aside, I really hope their blog stays up for awhile. I had never really checked it out before because it's all written in Polish, but there are some amazing layouts on there!03/21/13 06:21amscrapallyI'm with you, Susan/LuckyJava -03/21/13 07:07amMelBlackburnAlly, i often say that "this too shall pass", especially when it comes to my baby waking up at 5am! ;)03/21/13 07:12amscrapallyLOL Mel! :)I will admit, I would roll my eyes when she said it... but she was always RIGHT!03/21/13 07:16amlovelovelyRegardless of the situation, we should be compassionate to all members involved.
monikaHi girls :) here you can find other stolen patterns http://pinterest.com/humahuppa/graphic-design/ Anna Maria's name was on all of them.03/21/13 11:15amsarah yatesHi Everyone!Thanks so much for your support and acknowledgement of this issue. The designs they copied in that one collection belonged to me. I commissioned a brilliant designer: http://aileencheng.com/ in the summer of 2011 to create them as part of a website/blog/branding package. It was incredibly disheartening to see I Lowe Scraps taking Aileen's work and remaking it / calling it their own. Even the logo for that collection is clearly a knockoff of my logo.When I contacted them about the issue their initial response was rude and complete denial. This is the exact response from Anna Maria Wolkniak:Hi Sarah, We were inspired by two of those patterns but we made them from the begining to the end and change them a little bit. We don't hide the inspiration. They are not stolen, not "copy and past" versions of your blog design. This is not a plagiarism and we didn't stole these patterns. We use the beautiful idea of them to create something from the begining.There's no any official resistered patent on the Ailnee's webside, and until we don't litteraly copy every single part of these patterns - in the face of international law we create our own designs in a creative process. So the designs are not stolen, because they are not a copies. We agree that this situation is not "good looking", but the edition is not big and we won't continue reprinting these papers. We're sorry for this situation.Then, before I could respond, I got another email from Anna Wach that said this:Sarah, We are very sorry. You receive a message from our designer who also have an access to this e-mail. We understand her arguments, but we don't have to anyone be sufferer. You have right, these designs are very simmilar - we had no idea about that. What we can propose you. The things look like this. We print only 1500 papers with these patterns and they are almost out of stock so we can't take them off. We can give you the money from the sale of these two patterns, and we will not reprint them in this look anymore. We promise to change these two patterns much more then now or just end this collection, stop printed these papers. We are so sorry about this awful situation, we would like to alleviate this issue as good as we can now. It's a pitty that we won't check it before the printing - but hope you understand that we can't know everything in the internet - we don't have enough time for it. And we must trust our designer. What's done is done. All we can make know is give you the money for these papers and won't reprint them. We can also add a note about inspiration on our blog. We are waiting for your decision. And so sorry once again for this uncomfortable situation for both of us. We depend on the reputation and we would never like to be charged for stealing.In the end they paid my designer a small fee and agreed to stop selling the papers. We have not pursued any legal action against them. I've gotten so many sweet and thoughtful emails from the scrapbooking community showing their support and am so grateful. I wanted to finally chime in and tell the full story. I'm not clear on what else they've been copying, although if that pinterest board is correct it's quite a lot. I am so grateful to the scrapbooking community for taking a stand on this and showing their support of designers and copyright!I hope this helps clear up some confusion!Cheers!
kethry70To paraphrase Princess Bride in regards to the word plagiarism "I don't think that word means what you think it means". What a horribly disappointing situation. Just because something isn't illegal, doesn't mean it is right or ethical :(03/21/13 12:05pmmonikaand she is in your creative team : http://www.studiocalico.com/creative-team-gallery/neverland/scrapbook/anna-maria-wolniak :/03/21/13 12:10pmkethry70Monika, I am quite sure that has not escaped anyone's notice :(03/21/13 12:12pmmonikaBelieve me, everyone in Poland are shocked and disgusted ;( for many people Anna Maria was a great artist ;( now she is known from the fact that she is stealing someone else designs :(03/21/13 12:18pmlovelovelyWhile I do not understand all the variables in this devastating situation and my heart aches for all parties involved. I do know that Anna Maria will always be an inspiration to me. She is truly compassionate and I will forever consider her my friend.03/21/13 12:23pmsylviasushi27Wow, just wow. Inspiration and complete plagiarism are too completely different things. There's no way two unrelated people created the EXACT same designs in different colors.As a designer, and an artist, this really disappoints me. I hold SC in such a high regard... Allowing them to continue to produce/support such plagiarism has tarnished my view of the company.03/21/13 12:24pmLcp88It might be nice for someone to chime in from SC before this thread goes haywire...03/21/13 12:31pmJen JockischI don't think it's right at all to call someone out by name on this thread. None of us know all the facts. And Anna Maria is a real person with real feelings who does read this forum.03/21/13 12:33pmLcp88Jen - my point exactly :)03/21/13 12:34pmLisaMackHey everyone- to be very clear, we have in no way been involved in the design or production of any of the products or designs you all are discussing. I would suggest that if you have any issues or concerns with any specific company, you please take it to them directly rather than use our public forum to discuss it.I am locking this thread :)
I'm a little surprised they only locked that thread and didn't actually delete it!!! Definitely not surprised that Jen Jockish came to defend the guilty party. Just like she defended Kinsey's drunk driving sister.
They have apparently now deleted Monika and Sarah's posts naming names
Who is devildog on Two Peas? What a moron.
Jen Jockish continues to prove that she is a fool. I want to like her so badly, she is a great scrapbooker!! But as a person, she is a true IDIOT. The facts are pretty clear. From day 1 the facts were clear when you looked at the ILS designs and the designers work. Oh my gosh these women are so infuriating! This is why I hate this hobby sometimes, having to deal with dummies like these and having to be associated with these fools.
Is lovelylovely the Freckled Fawn owner!?
I'm surprised that it took this long for the scrapbook community to blow up about this. These "similarities" were brought up a while back. It irritates me to no end when people pull the "they're human too!" I don't know if I will continue to do business with Studio Calico if they keep theifs on their design team. She's probably copying other people's layouts for the gallery. And I'm not buying that they had no clue their "designer" was stealing designs from real designers. They are just trying to save face. I'm glad they are folding.
Thieves even. ;)I agree, it's not like this issue wasn't brought up. I don't understand why they keep hiding behind "we're trying to sort out the facts". The facts were clearly stated in those emails from the parties involved. What's so difficult to understand?
Yes I agree Jen Jockitch is a real idiot! Go read her reply on the Two Peas Geekpea thread.She's not someone I would want representing my company.
Anonymous said... monikaHi girls :) here you can find other stolen patterns http://pinterest.com/humahuppa/graphic-design/ Anna Maria's name was on all of them.03/21/13 11:15amsarah yatesHi Everyone!Thanks so much for your support and acknowledgement of this issue. The designs they copied in that one collection belonged to me. I commissioned a brilliant designer: http://aileencheng.com/ in the summer of 2011 to create them as part of a website/blog/branding package. It was incredibly disheartening to see I Lowe Scraps taking Aileen's work and remaking it / calling it their own. Even the logo for that collection is clearly a knockoff of my logo.When I contacted them about the issue their initial response was rude and complete denial. This is the exact response from Anna Maria Wolkniak:Hi Sarah, We were inspired by two of those patterns but we made them from the begining to the end and change them a little bit. We don't hide the inspiration. They are not stolen, not "copy and past" versions of your blog design. This is not a plagiarism and we didn't stole these patterns. We use the beautiful idea of them to create something from the begining.There's no any official resistered patent on the Ailnee's webside, and until we don't litteraly copy every single part of these patterns - in the face of international law we create our own designs in a creative process. So the designs are not stolen, because they are not a copies. We agree that this situation is not "good looking", but the edition is not big and we won't continue reprinting these papers. We're sorry for this situation.Then, before I could respond, I got another email from Anna Wach that said this:Sarah, We are very sorry. You receive a message from our designer who also have an access to this e-mail. We understand her arguments, but we don't have to anyone be sufferer. You have right, these designs are very simmilar - we had no idea about that. What we can propose you. The things look like this. We print only 1500 papers with these patterns and they are almost out of stock so we can't take them off. We can give you the money from the sale of these two patterns, and we will not reprint them in this look anymore. We promise to change these two patterns much more then now or just end this collection, stop printed these papers. We are so sorry about this awful situation, we would like to alleviate this issue as good as we can now. It's a pitty that we won't check it before the printing - but hope you understand that we can't know everything in the internet - we don't have enough time for it. And we must trust our designer. What's done is done. All we can make know is give you the money for these papers and won't reprint them. We can also add a note about inspiration on our blog. We are waiting for your decision. And so sorry once again for this uncomfortable situation for both of us. We depend on the reputation and we would never like to be charged for stealing.In the end they paid my designer a small fee and agreed to stop selling the papers. We have not pursued any legal action against them. I've gotten so many sweet and thoughtful emails from the scrapbooking community showing their support and am so grateful. I wanted to finally chime in and tell the full story. I'm not clear on what else they've been copying, although if that pinterest board is correct it's quite a lot. I am so grateful to the scrapbooking community for taking a stand on this and showing their support of designers and copyright!I hope this helps clear up some confusion!Cheers!--------------Where have you found this??Who is going to believe the excuse that the designer was the one who wrote the first answer???? C'mon, Ania Maria Wolniak was THE designer!!!!
They were on the orginal SC thread as posted by the owner fo some of the designs. The whole email exchange as shown indicates that AMW as owner and designer had one response while the other owner at elast cliams to have no knowledge or approval of AMW's "inspiration"
2:00 pm you are right. So Anna Walch. means she din't know that Wolniak has stolen SO many designs from other designers..... I don't believe it. and SC? what are they going to do with Ania Maria Wolniak? will she stay as DT??
I just browsed through the ILS website and compared it to the pinboard that was posted. It's amazing how many designs were near direct copies! I am not bothered by the fact that SC locked the thread, however I am very disappointed that they chose to delete the information provided by the artist. In doing this, it appears that they condone Anna-Maria's behavior. I personally feel that she should be let go from all her her design teams. If this were a newspaper job, she would be fired for plagiarism. Perhaps she can get a job with October Afternoon's social media team next, hee!
Agree that in the professional world, plagiarism is grounds for dismissal. It's an unforgivable sin in the creative industry.Anna-Maria's reputation is ruined. It's not as though there is any doubt of her guilt. It's out there for all the world to see, so those saying "don't judge" obviously have no respect for intellectual property.
I read some of the posts listed on the Polish thread that was linked at 2peas. I feel really badly for all the Polish scrappers. They seem to think that this is going to make everyone hate/distrust/dislike all Polish scrappers. I can honestly say that I don't care one bit that it was a Polish company. I think Anna-Maria is a dimwitted copycat who deserves to be blacklisted, but I can't imagine this would make people harbor negative feelings to all Polish scrapbookers!
All this copying talk and one of the major ones, Teresa Collins, is still around.
She won't be blacklisted. Look at Donna Downey.
There is no excuse for liking jen jockisch after her stupid comment in DEFENSE of drunk driving during the jailbird diaries fiasco. Awful.
I won't even look at JJ's layouts in the gallery anymore. She disgusts me.
What does being Polish have to do with it? I don't think that was even a consideration. Isn't Waleska Polish? She's amazing and, as far as I know, never ripped off someone's designs.Anna Maria is being crucified for being a copycat and a liar, and that would be happening no matter where she's from. It doesn't say anything about other people from her country. I think honesty and integrity are values in any culture, and she clearly does not have them.
Does Two Peas sell Project Life stuff? A lot of posts about it and about HSN selling it, I bet they don't appreciate that if it violates the TOU
It's disguisting how the GG are defending Anna-Maria! Saying she's so talented.Do they not understand she copied another artist??
Anonymous said...What does being Polish have to do with it? I don't think that was even a consideration. Isn't Waleska Polish? She's amazing and, as far as I know, never ripped off someone's designs.^^I am the one the posted the original comment about the Polish scrappers. Just to clarify, I personally don't think they have anything to worry about. It just seems like they are taking this very personally. One thing I read said something like this will reinforce people thinking Polish people are thieves, which is something I've never heard before or would ever think!! I just feel bad for them. I think if something happened like this in the US (as it has) I would never feel like it was a reflection on US scrappers, but that is not the case with them.
It's crazy how many people are rushing to her defense. I bet they wouldn't be saying that if it were there work being totally, flat out copied. And Anna saying she only used the real deal as "inspiration" .....holy balls.
So what did Teresa Collins steal? I've never heard about this...
^^^ I meant to say 'copy' not steal...
8:13, then get on that thread and say something!
8:44 it's locked! I actually typed something out in reply to a member that had said she would miss "Anna's work". It didn't go through and then I saw that Lisa had locked the thread. Whaaaaaaaaatever. SC would stick up for a thief.
There is,a,thread on Two Peas you can post on though. They are defending her there as well. Saying how talented she is, etc.
Did the PTB at peas delete the last post, or the poster? Wish I had grabbed it, it was good. My post vanished too, but I don't think it ever showed up.
Teresa Collins is notorious for copying Heidi Swapp, even so far as using Heidi's writing for a font. She caused lots of drama as a designer for Rusty Pickle.
SzreniawaPeaWeePeaNut 583,647March 2013Posts: 3Layouts: 0 Posted: 3/21/2013 5:14:20 PM--------------------------------------------------------------------------------I'll try to show you whole situation in one big shortcut. The original founder of ILS was Anna Wach aka. Nulka, and something about over a year ago, Anna-Maria Wolniak became a co-owner. Her job - AMW - was to project new paper collections - with one other designer Ewa Kujawska (Nebri). Almost whole storm has started on wednesday/thursday last week, when DT members discovered that the last collection - Divine This Line, has few papers that suspiciously similar to another designers work. They decided to go to the source, the girl that has own the copyrights to those similar designes. After few mails, DT members was informed by Sarah (the owner)that ILS stoled her designs, that she received a lot of emails informing her about ILS collection. Sarah wrote email to ILS, demands to delete her papers, withdraw them from selling, write an apology. After three months, the only thing she recieved during this time, was a very rude email from AMW - the CO-OWNER AND COLLECTION DESIGNER . She recieved a small fee for stolen designes, after the ILS DT members starts a fire. Till this time ILS owners - Anna Wach and Anna-Maria Wolniak, was quiet. Very quiet. In a way, that nobody knows - nobody talks. DT members after such a news - resigned. Almost whole Design Team has ended their co-operation. Till now, they're waiting for any form of apologizee from Anna-Maria Wolniak. We can say, Anna Wach make such a statement. And now here's the deal. I got such a feeling, that half of you don't understand the situation. Anna-Maria Wolniak - and I don't give a damn about writing names - stole not 2 or 4 designes. The stolen paper designes, flow out at the moment and there are about maybe 20-25, from the last 2 years. She talks about herself like an huge worldwide artist, and at the end, we find out, that she's not only a thief, that stoles anothers work, but also a liar - yeah, apparently she didn't finish The School of Fine Arts. She's known in Poland as a bitch, but she don't give a damn about opinion in Poland, she wants to be famous in the whole wide world, but not on her own country. Still, she's in Studio Calico Design Team and Dear Lizzy DT, i'm just figuring out - did she makes her works by herself or just copying others? I hope i show you a little more than you're thinking, and disable your pity for her, that irritates me very much, as i know the whole situation. Have a nice day Oh, and by the way. She's deleting any form of question about the whole situation and any questions about illegal copying and stoling others designs from her fanpage on FB. SzreniawaPeaWeePeaNut 583,647March 2013Posts: 3Layouts: 0 Posted: 3/21/2013 5:27:18 PM--------------------------------------------------------------------------------An interesting email from the original owner of designs stolen by Anna-Maria Wolniak: link And the main and the most important thing - ILS haven't ended their activity, they only temporary stopped.
We need some new smack.Any more "drive-by-honkings" lately?
KP makes it clear in her blog post today that she made the decision to leave Studio Calico, as I long suspected. April would never have let her go, because she contributed a ton to the bottom line. Remember, everything's about $$$ with April. User, controller, narcissist = April Foster.Can't help but think "yay, KP!"
Don't see how that is news, KP said from the start it was her decision to leave if you read her blog post after SC announced it.
Mizz Smack & Guess site = crickets!New smack definitely needed
what is the guess site?
"Lisa Mack Hi ladies! I know there has been a lot of talk surrounding the recent closing of I Lowe Scrap, so I wanted to address it as best as I can :) We have a Creative Team contract with Anna-Maria, and she has upheld or exceeded every term we have outlined. We do not and can not manage other roles, companies, or other obligations that our Creative Team members have outside of Studio Calico.That being said, we in no way condone blatant copying of designs. We have experienced that frustration many times. When contracting with a third-party designer for product design, there are implied risks that you take. We are unable to address any legal matters that do not pertain directly to Studio Calico.We have locked or deleted other threads pertaining to this issue, as we try to keep our message boards a positive place to be. If you have any questions, concerns, or humorous anecdotes to share, you can contact us here: http://www.studiocalico.com/conversations/new :)Thank you all for making this community a great one- we appreciate you all!03/22/13 10:01am"
"Jen JockischWe're headed to the beach next week (YAY!!) and the forecast is saying it should be around 70 degrees. It's 10 degrees here with windchill factor and 70 is a distant memory.

One good thing about mizz smack's blog being dead is that she isn't constantly here trying to get us to go to it :) anyone else notice how awfully quiet she has been here? Except of course she IS still here, just not signing her name to her rabid posts.
"Tammy Cann Caudell The Scrap YardTammy Cann Caudell promoted Kanani Kawamura and Kelley Lohr to admin of the group The Scrap Yard."ROTFFL!! Let the games begin!!
I miss the real smack drama. No one sincerely cares about this euro-trash.Lisa B. hawking on PL for Becky on HSN Monday. The rich get richer...
^thats Eastern euro trash.
So awhile ago Lorie sent out an email from SC saying that people that bought defective Darling Dear stamp sets would be getting new ones because they were all defective...no word since, still unable to use my stamps. Whatever happened there?
sc didnt follow up on what they said they would do.surprised?
I'm a little surprised they only locked that thread and didn't actually delete it!!! Definitely not surprised that Jen Jockish came to defend the guilty party. Just like she defended Kinsey's drunk driving sister.**************************She's also defending Geek Pea on the paper pad debacle.
http://octoberafternoon.typepad.com/october_afternoon/2013/03/new-technology-meets-time-honored-tradition-introducing-daily-flash.htmlnew oa, bitches.
you seriously believe you'll ever see it?
So, Teresa Collins, Heidi Swap and Donna D are off on another junket abroad. This time to newzealand. What I wanna know isw ho is this Maggie Armstrong that they are headlining with? Anyone heard of her? Who does she design for? Is she any good?I think this event is a take off of hedis creative adventure here in USA. That's most likely why she's goin to it. Don't know nothing about Maggie Armstrong but if ya Google her you can see some of her work on her blog, maggiesdoodads or somethin like that. She does some pretty interesting stuff, and not just the usual crap that most other known scrappers do, I.e. doesn't vomit flowers on all her los.
Er, I ment creative escape in these.
SC kicked Sash off (or "didn't renew her contract") because she posted on this very smack blog. If they let AM stay they are the biggest hypocrites of all time.
Can someone explain why April has an assistant? Is barking orders from her desk that strenuous?
Disappointed the October Afternoon release is more PL stuff.
Was thinking of dumping my SC sub & looked into other kits. Gave Citrus Twist a try, Main & PL came today. Sure enough full of SC shit. With all the product out there, why would they fill their kits with their competitors product?
Where are they now?Kate O'BrienMelody RossScarlett NamvongThey were smackworthy or involved in smackable issues...back in the day.
Disappointed the October Afternoon release is more PL stuff.-------------------------Agreed, but OA lost me several years ago with their inconsistent releases/delays etc. The PL thing has been done to death. I'm not surprised they would jump on the bandwagon as well. Nearly every manu out there now has a PL concept being hawked as "new" and "innovative". I understand it's a quick and easy way to scrapbook, but since when has that ever been what this hobby is about? I know it appeals to younger scrapbookers and if it keeps interest in the industry going, that's great. I'm just sick of seeing it everywhere and it reminds me too much of just slapping pics in a regular old photo album.
this looks familiar http://www.caravanshoppe.com/product/all-you-need-is-love/wonder which came first? Add on #1 at SC or this stores download?
Seems to me there was another company a few years ago that did a PL kind of thing, I saw them in Michaels but they didnt go over back then.
I would love to see a concerted effort to email SC about removing AM from the DT. Copying another designer's work is unacceptable, and it reflects so poorly on SC to be affiliated with a known copier!
She's also defending Geek Pea on the paper pad debacle.___OMG. Get the fuck over it. You didn't get a $5 freebie and now you're running all over the interwebz crying in your cereal about it.The only people who came off poorly in this "debacle" are the supposed adults who are pouting like petulant little children and taunting the bukkit's employees.
Every day that SC keep AMW on their team they have the stink of the unrepentant plagiarist on them. Every day, a big slap in the face to Cheng (the ORIGINAL artist) and every other hard working artist out there. This is not OK. There is no contract in the world that protects a plagiarist. Contract law is very cut and dried. They will not be sued because a PLAGIARIST has no defence. No, it didn't happen at SC. But when you enter a contract misrepresenting yourself, or you commit a dishonest act, no contract will protect your sorry ass. There are long list of exclusions for breaking contract in American contract. They don't even have to exist within the document. They are clearly written in common law. If they are keeping her, either they have bad lawyers, or law doesn't enter into it. Because they CHOOSE to keep her. If she had a milligram of self respect left she would do the right thing by resigning. But anyone who would do what she did with those designs obviously is lacking in that area.
Also about PL, if everybody buys Becky's kits for example on HSN, everybody's albums are going to look alike. I have no interest in PL, my pictures are almost all vertical closely cropped in so I don't even know if I would be able to do it. If I want faster scrapbooking I can still do it in a 12x12 format.
Seems to me there was another company a few years ago that did a PL kind of thing, I saw them in Michaels but they didnt go over back then.______There was a company called Scrapworks that did the divided page projector thing. I don't know what happened to them, though.
American Crafts sold a line of divided page protectors in Michaels before BH started hawking PL. If people won't stop supporting SC because of crappy products, shipping delays, price gouging, and horribly customer service, I highly doubt enough people will care if AMW stays on the DT or not.
they are already selling the page protectors, pockets and cardstock on HSN.
I won't buy SC as long as they keep her on their DT.
Years ago I got the scrap works albums and their scrapbox. It was an album that fit into a leather box. The page protectors were very thick and of high quality with a black lining. I found a bunch in my stash recently and am using them up. The PL dividers are just too thin. I use the we r memory keepers when I do layouts with divided pockets. I'm not a PL scrapper per se. I too feel like the poster above that everyone's stuff looks all alike. Hopefully this will be a temporary blip or phase in the industry
If I were a scrap company I would kick Anna Maria off my team immediately. Her reputation as a designer is completely destroyed and she brings major negativity to the chat boards wherever she goes. Scrappers can be jealous intolerant bitches but in this case they are right- she's got to go. I give her till June with SC then she'll claim she has to "focus on her family" and "resign".It's not the first time she's been accused of plagiarism. Her Art Journaling Magazine spreads have been called out as direct copies from other artists as well. So it's not just the scrap industry standard of "getting inspiration from" other paper patterns- the stealing is in all the work she does.She's totally over committed. Three major design teams, teaching gigs, publications- something had to give and she made the wrong choice as to what, over and over again.
She's also defending Geek Pea on the paper pad debacle.___OMG. Get the fuck over it. You didn't get a $5 freebie and now you're running all over the interwebz crying in your cereal about it.******************************I am the OP here and yet am NOT the one crying over a missing paper pad...just pointing out Jen's defense of geekpea. I rarely/never order online and don't even use 6x6 paper pads. But good try...HA!
The problem with the "PL Style" is that you don't have to be using divided page protectors to be recording your everyday life a week at a time. Nor do you have to be recording our everyday life a week at a time to use divided page protectors. Project Life is an idea, not a style.
Can anybody share a link that shows that AMW scraplifted that others girl's layouts?
Lisa Bearnson has some fucking nerve. She created the elaborate pages trend with her magazine and now she jumps on another bandwagon to make fast pages. I remember when she was hawking Shutterfly books which to me is the opposite of scrapbooking. That woman is a greedy pig and will shill anything for money.
http://www.twopeasinabucket.com/mb.asp?cmd=display&forum_id=10&thread_id=3227836the brain surgeons are already clamoring about LB's return on HSN! Talk about sheep!
^^^^^ I was going to look at your link but Two Peas is down for me. That is the worst site, no other website goes down as much as they do.
I am watching HSN and my god! They are talking over eachother and you can't understand a thing!
20 minutes into the first show with Lisa and they have sold over 4,000. They are going to be sold out.
Looks like the HSN host has gained back some of the weight. I knew she would talk over Lisa Bearnson.
^^^So did LB! She looks like she could be entered in the 5th at the track!
Biggest pet peeve ever: when you can't even take a photo of a child without a pacifier in it's mouth. This looks like a beautiful baby, but I really can't tell because half her face is a piece of plastic. http://static.studiocalico.com/system/gallery_pictures/images/000/151/549/original/good-morning.jpg
The Amy Tangerine blog had a post up about the HSN thing with a comment saying something like 7550 orders have gone through and all I could think was "Wow, that's 7550 projects that are going to look practically identical!" If you take into account anyone that chose auto-ship for the free AT minikit it will be even more ridiculous.
My friend tries to scrapbook and it just is not there. LOL! I told her to turn it on thinking PL would be great for her. It is just not for me. She said she was so annoyed with how they were speaking over each other, they would get really loud, and they were speaking so fast! I turned it off cause of that as well! I agree...those are the same albums everyone will have. I have seen people really embellish them. Why bother? Might as well scrapbook at that point! Those albums looked so cheap and horrid. The finish looked worse than the $10 albums from Michaels and looked like they would last just about as long...I did order a MS paint kit though. I did my duty!
I think it is possible to use a kit and still maintain your own style. When people start getting all the same add ons or everyone is a SC subber on top of their PL kit is where it starts getting same-y. I have Seafoam but mine doesn't look like EJBC or AE's PL because A. I have a different lifestyle and B. I use a lot of extras from Paislee Press and smaller graphic designers.
horseface LB is hawking her (s)crap on HSN now
Ok David Tutera needs to stick to weddings! He is a horrible scrapbooker and his line is one step above CM from 15 years ago.
Kelley Lohr is an admin again at TSY. What did I miss? Didn't she just get 'fired' as an admin a week or so ago?
Holy shit. The chic on HSN right now...she looks like a hooker with her graphic 70's blouse with the three holes in it. Fuck. Who told her she looked good this morning?!?!?!?
I had to go look at HSN, damn, that is the ugliest blouse I've ever seen... stylist FAIL!
Had to switch over too. WHAT is wrong with that chick? The outfit, the make-up... do people really look like that in real life? I like the normal girl in the purple. At least her sweater isn't suffocating her with how tight it is!
The HSN hosts always look a little more tacky than most! Also, is Susan Runyan pregnant? She's the one who was on the air with Horseface when the PL kit first aired?
Holy fucking shit:17,000 x $49.95 - KA CHING!
David Tutera on HSN right now. His shit is worse than CM. I'm not even sure how it's possible.
I like the host who called a Cropadile a Cropadilly!! LOL
that David Tutera crap was ugly ugly ugly, and I like him - what a bummer. And what's with all of horseface's BFF's calling in? LOL. It made her look really bad, like there were no real customers interested.
Lisa is adorable and did a great job. Don't be a haterrrrrrrrrr, hahaha.
More than 17, 000 "real customers" were interested.(Just sayin'.)
So can someone explain, if BH is having AC manufacture the kits for her, what is her piece of the pie on regular sales and HSN sales. Would love to know how much she's getting per kit.
Wow. I love seeing the people who immediately post the PL grab bags up for sale for more than they bought them. And if they are like me, they used a publication credit to buy them, so they are making money off nothing. I wish I had no conscience. I could be rich.
5:21 where are you seeing them for sale? The only place I've seen them mentioned is Two Peas, and that was all people complaining about how they got less then advertised and mostly grid cards.
3:00 am - I know, I know... :)

As a blogger, you get repeated dumb questions from idiot readers. I'm not a big/very popular blogger and don't even blog about as many scrap related things and I get repeated questions about mundane details. "OMG How do you do it!?!" type things. After about the 50th email on it for each subject you get tired of answering the same question, so you blog about it. At least she says she gets help from the movers and says she is grateful for it.
Why the eff is Kelley Lohr back as an admin at TSY?smh...She CANNOT shut up...
shoot tell me who wants to buy my PL Grab Bag from SC, cause it SUCKS big time! I probably won't be able to give the darn thing away... Bad bad bad SC... I have a huge Love/Hate relationship with them...
