I hope everyone's holidays have been warm, wonderful, and filled with lots of family and friends!

Until then, run over to my CT blog for a sneak peek and a chance to win. Then be sure to stop back here for the full reveal on Friday.. there may even be a freebie involved... ;)

Daily Download Reveal & Collab with DDBN!

Wow! What a fun month this has been! So much festive cheer, so many happy people around town, and an awesome daily download on top of it all, LOL! I had about 400 people download each portion of the kit from my CT blog, so I'm hoping to see lots and lots and LOTS of great new pages filling up the gallery at Scrap Matters.. But first, I guess I should reveal the kit in all it's glory..

Totally fun, right? Well, I hope you all enjoy it, and of course if you missed out on all the daily download magic, you can now purchase the entire kit from my store at full price. {The discount was only valid for the duration of the dd.}. And now I can finally show you all the awesome pages my CT has done with the kit, too! They've had this one for a while, and I know they're chomping at the bit to get out and start posting them!

And here's an awesome last-minute gift idea for you.. One of the hybrid gals at Scrap Matters - Krisi's Kreations - has used the kit to make some super cute coupon packets.. Something for couples, something for kids, and something for adults.. So really, it's something for everyone! :D

You can even get this super cute freebie, just by visiting her blog.. You won't want to miss it!

Now... I'm also releasing another brand NEW totally AWESOME kit this week! An old friend of mine has teamed up with me once again, and we're so excited to release another collab together. Nicole, of Digi-designs by Nicole, and I used to collab once a month {as you may recall}, but we let it slip and haven't done anything together in over SIX months! Well.. the wait is over, and I'm pleased to finally bring you...

This kit is full of vibrant colors, lots of grunge, and a healthy dose of metal, making it perfect for scrapping anyone with a bit of an attitude - teens, toddlers, even those crazy ladies out for a night on the town.. Just check out these CT pages to see what I mean..

The kit is 20% off Friday and Saturday, but if you are running short on time and need something a little "quicker," check out these awesome pages done by Nicole's CT. You can grab them from her store for 20% off through Monday!

Now.. after all that, I think you deserve a freebie.. or maybe even two, lol.. Click the preview below to grab the QP I made out of my LO, and then don't forget to stop by Nicole's blog to snag some super cute BB pages as well.. :D

I won't be releasing anything next week, but I would like to wish everyone who celebrates a very Merry Christmas, and to everyone else, Happy Holidays!! :D

Happy scrapping!

Scrapping the Weekend Away...

So I've taken just a wee little break from designing this past week or so, and somehow managed to organize my life and time to have scrapped five - count them, FIVE - pages since Friday! Can you believe it?!! I'm not sure I can! And gee whiz, it's sure been fun! :D So, just for kicks, I thought I'd show off my handiwork.. {each image is clickable for credits}

My sweet little niece, who my sister generously lets me scrap whenever I get the urge for some pink in my life, lol..

And of course, my little bug.. not so little, anymore, though.. He'll be two at the end of January, and I'm hoping to get his first year book finished by then.. not sure it's going to happen, but we'll see..

And this last page, I just have to tell you about.... So, as you may recall, there was a little Facebook Fan Drive competition amongst some of the designers over DSD.. The prize? The losers all had to scrap a page with a new kit of the winner's choice.. And boy - I'm SO glad Chelle won!! :D You may have heard about the journaling class she's teaching beginning in January, and if not, let me put in a little plug here... It's a four-week class designed to help you get out of your journaling rut - or to start journaling in the first place.. I've seen a sneak peek at some of her lesson plans, and man - they are KILLER! SO fun, and a total must-have experience for anyone wanting to make their journaling a little more special.. Because that's what scrapping's all about, right? The STORY!! So anyway, as part of the class, you get an awesome mega kit - shown below - as well as additional weekly freebies.. I'm telling you - SO worth it!

So - that's the kit you get, and here's a page I did using it, and my Just Call Me Cowgirl templates.. I really like how it turned out.. :D

So - if you're feeling a little inspired to go "back to school" - or at least take a gander - go check out the product description for more info on this awesome opportunity.. And I'll see you on Friday with a brand new kit with an old friend of mine.. :D

Decking the Blogs.. and Templates, Too!

Did you miss me last week? Well, never fear - as this time of year is getting busier and busier for everyone, I'm doing my best to keep up, and this week I have FOUR brand new products to share with you! Take a look...

First up, I'm so excited to finally start releasing some blogwear! I've had lots of people ask about it, and I've been meaning to do it for months, but this is the first time I've been able to squeeze it in... And what perfect timing, right? With all of the decorating going on this season - inside and outside your homes - why should your home on the web be left out? With three different sets with completely different styles, there's something for everyone!

*Be sure to click through to the product descriptions in the store, as you will find links there to sample blogs showing each of these sets in action!

And for those of you who are more into scrapping than blogging, I'm also releasing a FABULOUS new set of templates - inspired by my CT member, Amanda - aka photocowgirl.

Something I love about Amanda's style is that it's so varied. She isn't afraid to try something different, and with this set of templates, you'll have plenty of opportunities to step outside your own creative comfort zone as well.

I'm going to leave you with some inspiration layouts from my CT and the Scrap Matters CT - and as you can see, everyone is loving these templates! But don't forget - my new releases are always 20% off Friday and Saturday.. Also, there are still a few more days of the daily download on my CT Blog before I put the kit into my store at full price next week. See you then!

Happy scrapping!
