Midnight Interlude

Well... I hope everyone had a fun, fulfilling, and happy Thanksgiving. It sure was quiet over the weekend in ScrappyLand - at the least few times I popped in. But boy, let me tell you, last week was CRAZY! I didn't get ANY scrapping done! Luckily, I'm a week ahead, so I still have a kit to offer you this week...

This is TOTALLY different than anything I've ever done before... but I think it turned out okay.. My CT was also pretty busy last week, so I don't have layouts from all of them yet, but I'll add them as they come in.. Hopefully they'll give you some ideas as to how the kit can be used...

Jen used it to scrap some beautiful wedding photos... Check out that blending!

Kathy used it to scrap two different pages of her beautiful daughter.

Lori managed to make it a bit more masculine...

While Sarah made another great page to show off some wedding pics.

And mine is devoted totally to my first babies, Max & Sasha.
I lifted sketch 113 by Michelle Filo from Pencil Lines. This is seriously such a great resource if you need inspiration for getting a layout done.. Go check it out!

Everybody's names are linked above, or you can get to their blogs by clicking their charming mugs in my left sidebar.. Either way, go leave them some love - they deserve it! ... You won't get your download until you do! ... ;)

If you like it, a comment - or other form of "appreciation" - would be nice... :D
See you tomorrow with the elements!

Wednesday, November 26, 2008


I'm posting this "ahead of time" and will probably be playing some killer board games with my SIS and BIL when it actually posts.. But I didn't want to leave you hanging just because of the holiday... Here are the labels to go with your contemporary preggers kit.

Freebie has expired. Purchase HERE.
50% off thru Nov. 30th!

Now... to be honest, I have an add-on in mind, but it's just been a crazy week, and with all the packing, cleaning, cooking, etc, I need to do tonight (Tuesday) I'm not sure I'll be able to get it finished before I leave town for the holiday... But no worries, I'll be back Saturday and hope to have it to you then...

But while you're waiting, you can celebrate by checking out these great sales!

AA Alpha

Before we get to the goodies, I have a bit of housekeeping....

I did another one-kit-CT-call for Jess Gordon, who just opened a store at Sunshine Studio Scraps. It was a really cute and creative kit called "Christmas Heart." It's full of a lot of warm and earthy textures, as well as some sophistication and sparkle. You should go check it out!

Here's the page I did with it.. I know, I know... the cats totally steal the show!

Next on the agenda: HUGE SALE at Taggers Scraps! Thursday thru Sunday everything is 50% off... And, and and... if you spend $50 {wow} you get an extra 50% off! That's 75% off! (I know, it took me a while to figure out how that worked too... I've never been great with numbers)

Now.. I realize that most of you are probably not in the market for tagger-sized kits, so I've made up a special little sale of my own (not subject to above-mentioned discounts)... I personally love a bargain, but I'm rarely willing to wake up at 3:00 in the morning to stand in line for said bargain... So... from the comfort of your own home - all bundled up in your pj's, sipping cider by the fire - you can BUY MY STORE! That's right - every kit I've ever made - even some not yet released on my blog - can be purchased in one big bundle! That's 17 kits - add-ons included - totaling over 2500 items, for a measley $15. That's less than $1 per kit - over 75% off what you would pay for them separately! Now.. How can you pass that up?!? You can't! Don't forget - this Thursday thru Sunday only!

Oh geeze! That was a lot of advertising.. Anyone up for a freebie? Here's the alpha for AA. Enjoy!

Contemporary Elements

YAY!!! You like me! You really like me! lol ;) Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your sweet comments - it really makes my day! And it seems as though quite a few of you took to the papers and decided to download despite the "theme" of the kit... Well, I hope I can say the same for the elements.. These are really what make it a pregnancy kit - but don't worry, there's still plenty of "other" things to choose from. I hope you like them, and if you do... well, you know the drill.... :)

Freebie has expired. Purchase HERE.
50% off thru Nov. 30th!


Even though Nicole is in Paris this week {jealous, jealous, jealous} she's still releasing a new kit.. Ahh, the joys of technology... This one is really beautiful, and bursting with great colors and fun elements - she just keeps getting better and better, don't you think?!!?

She released these papers yesterday, and will be doing elements today, followed by alphas, add-ons, and all sorts of goodies throughout the rest of the week. Be sure to check her blog each day to get your fill...

And here's my little page with my cute little giraffe...

Anxiously Awaiting

Well - after the success of Love & Joy, I have a lot to live up to... I doubt anything other than a Christmas kit would have done as well for me, so I'm glad so many of you liked it! But moving on...

A while back a friend of mine from high school emailed me asking for suggestions of kits she could use to scrap her pregnancy.. I looked around, sent her what info I could, and decided to give it a try myself.. Here's my latest and greatest - Anxiously Awaiting.

I know those of you who voted for the funky and bright color palette totally weren't expecting a pregnancy kit, but you got it anyway! ;) I know people generally think of baby things as all pretty and pastel-y - which is fine - but this isn't a kit about the baby... It's all about Mom. But don't worry, for those of you who don't have a need for such a kit, there is plenty of variety, so it can be used for pretty much anything bright and fun.. Just take a look at the great layouts my CT did: {Their names are linked, so be sure to leave them some love on their blogs as well}

Skye - the friend who inspired me

Kathy did two!

And me - almost a year ago to the day and 7 months prego - fun fun!

Well, hopefully you've been a bit inspired - and for those of you not needing a prego kit, hopefully you've seen the many possibilities this one has to offer. Download the papers below, come back for the elements tomorrow.. :)

Freebie has expired. Purchase HERE.
50% off thru Nov. 30th!

Don't forget to snag the coordinating blinky from my left side bar... And for those of you who prefer a more classic baby palette, check out my store HERE.

Sweet Dreams Little One

Here are some pages I've done with Kiki's Sweet Dreams Little One at AhhhScrap. Per my husband's suggestion - he's so helpful... sometimes ;) - I'm working on journaling that actually means something other than just a date or space filler... Something we could all probably try a little harder to do.. After all, the whole point of scrapping is to remember, right? And what's the point of remembering an image if we don't remember the little details that go along with it?

Holiday Cards

Well, everyone - we've made it to the end of this kit.. Can you believe it?!? What a week! I've made up some photo greeting cards using items from the kit.. There are 4 each of 5"x7" and 4"x7". Just plop your family photo in, stamp, and mail away. I hope you like them... And come by tomorrow for a sneak peek at next week's kit.

This kit has been retired...

Love & Joy

Well - Nicole and I have done it again... we hope! Here's our latest collab, Love & Joy. I like to think of it as a "winter" kit or a "holiday" kit, rather than a "Christmas" kit. It's true, there are a lot of traditional Christmas colors, but there are just so many options of how you can use it... Take a look at the fantastic layouts our CTs did and you'll see what I mean. Nicole and I gave both of our CTs both kits to work with, and they came up with some really great stuff - some of them even did more than one layout! Their names are linked to their blogs, so be sure to head over there and leave them some encouraging comments - they're all working their little heinies off!

Kathy did two!
Jewelle is making a calendar
Jen did two!
Sarah made a card
Nicole made two!
Lori made two!
Holly is on Nicole's CT.
Sara - Nicole's CT - what great clusters!Steph - Nicole's CT - also made two!Brittney - Nicole's CTOh yeah! And mine...
So after all that teasing, I bet you're just dying to get your little mits on this kit! ;) Well... you can have the papers today and the rest later! ;) We each have 2 downloads, so be sure to grab them all.

This kit has been retired...

You can grab Nicole's papers via her blinky on the right...
And speaking of blinkies, I have another one for you that coordinates with this kit. You can snag it on the left... Enjoy!
