Hello All!
I have so much to tell you about, I have a new kit releasing and a new hybrid challenge, complete with freebie card template, available over in the GingerScraps forum. More on that in a bit though.

(My apologies for a messy post, I usually use Live Writer, but it's not playing nice with Blogspot today, so I'm cobbling this together the old fashioned way!)

First the kit, to say this kit has been a labor of love is an understatement. I’ve been working on this kit so long, too long probably, but I had to get it just right. And I think I may have done it!

It was originally requested in the threads at GingerScraps. Did you know we have a Suggestion Box area, where you can post ideas for kits? We have a pretty good track record of filling requests, so many great ideas and designers to fill those wishes.

We’ve often tinkered with the idea of brewing our own beer, but haven’t put much effort forth, with Hubs working full time and going to school, there just hasn’t been the time, but the draw is still there.

And now Beer Fests and tasting have sprung up in our little northern town and the interest in checking out other’s brews is an easy “compromise” to brewing our own.

Personally, I love an Apricot Wheat beer brewed by our local brewhouse. Hubs drinks a much much darker brew, his latest fave is Cold Press Coffee Ale, again by a local brewhouse. Would you like a peek at all the goodies in this kit? There are quite a few.

The kit includes 101 elements (including the few recolors):

The “coasters” include both a new and “slightly” used version.

Journal cards (also with bleed versions) for pocket scrapbooking and journaling.  Also, a 4x6 rate card, lightly textured for easy home printing.

Fifty beer variety word strips, all fifty words in both colors.
And not one, but two alphas!


Whoo! I wish I could tell you how much I love this kit! I’m actually pretty excited to use it. I may just have to get him started brewing that beer after all!

And the CT layouts, oh my goodness, the GingerBread Girls did an amazing job with my little ol’ kit.

Save 25% off through Dec 18th.

And last but not least, the freebie!
Available till the end of the month, a super quick starter for those Holiday cards you forgot to make. ;)

Just come on over to the forum and pick it up. We’d love to see what you made with it, to get points for fantastic collab kits designed especially for Challenge Participants. More info in the forum.

That’s all I have for this week. I should have a new hybrid release coming next week. So excited! (Boy, I’m pretty excitable aren’t I?)

June Buffet and Daily Download

Hello Everyone!! I hope the weather where you are is as beautiful as it is here!!! I may have to give up on having a yard this year and just accept the dandelion farm it seems to have become. Winking smile


So….. an update on what’s happening with me is a tad overdue but no time like the present. The GS Buffet is up and I have to say I absolutely love what I’ve made for this month!!

Did you see the little elephant…. he’s so cute!!
Slightly roughed up, slightly worn. Circus themed and more. Includes exclusive hand drawn elements (by me!!) 23 unique elements (not including recolors).
Includes: badge, burlap banner, circus tent, buttons, elephant, feather, flowers, ring of flame frame, 2 pocket scrapbook size journal cards (with bleed also), string of lights (with and without glow), popcorn cup, popcorn, ticket and top hat (also cut out for placing in photos). Like this:


And of course there are some papers.


Here’s a closer look at the papers. Fourteen total, including 6 slightly worn through solids.


And the alpha, I love the alpha, I love how it turned out.

This alpha is capitals only, numbers 0 – 9 and limited punctuation. And the stripes to “hold” the letters in place, just like old fashioned sign boards.

All this is only $1 per pack till June 5th!!!

Now before I forget, Simple Girl Scraps and I are in the Designer Spotlight at GingerScraps this month. So what’s that mean for you? Two things….

#1 30% off my store all month long, no coupon required.


#2 Daily Download Freebie Kit on the GingerScraps blog. Sure it started on the first, but good news, the downloads stay up for 5 days, so there’s still time to get all the piece you may have missed already.
Here’s a sneak peak of the free kit by Simple Girl Scrap and myself.

And I’m hosting this month’s Designer Spotlight Challenge, so please come by and say hi!

Ok, I think that’s everything for me. I might sneak out on the deck and let the sun warm my toes… till the mosquitos find me anyway!

Thank you for stopping by!! See you again soon!!

Egg Shaped Place Holders are perfect for dressing up your dinner table for gatherings like Easter or baby showers. Besides designating seating arrangements they can also be printed up to carry theme through to the buffet table, guest book, wherever you want to leave a professional looking (egg shaped) note for all to see.

And don't forget the Hybrid Challenge at GingerScraps. This month we're creating Spring things!! I've created a template if you want to play along. Once you've posted a picture (not a screen shot) of your completed card, I will send you the cutting files for the card.


Ok, I think I've filled you up with enough eggy goodness for now.

iNSD is just around the corner, so back to the grindstone I go to create for goodies and thingys for you!

Game of Love, New Release & FWP offer

Hello everyone and Happy Valentine’s Day!

Sorry I’m so late with this today, I’ve had a busy day. My car got stuck in the street right out front of my house taking my youngest to the bus stop. We live on a bit of a hill and they didn’t plow very well after the 6” of snow we got last night so there I was stuck. Luckily the bus stop is only a block up and over, but with –7 temps this morning, it was a chilly walk. Eventually we ending up turning the van around, like a 3 point turn, but this time a 20 point turn and going around the block. Seems silly now, but at the time I was very upset. But we had a nice Valentine’s breakfast out and some window shopping after.

I wanted to share with you my latest kit. I was inspired to create a new kit, Game of Love, based on this quote, “Love is game two can play, and both win.”

Here it is:

A closer look at the papers:

And check out these slighty grungy solids….

And not content with one alpha, I made two.

The kit is 30% off through Thursday, Feb 20th. Everything I’ve shown you so far for only $3.50!!!  But wait there’s more….

The journal cards, cause I love some pocket scrapping! And they’re great little spots for journaling in a regular digi layout too.

They’re on sale 30% off through Thursday also. OR….

Get them FREE with the purchase of the Game of Love kit!!

Make sure you have both products in your cart and use offer code: FREEspc_GoL14

Here’s some inspiration from the GingerBread Girls and myself.





Before I forget, the Hybrid Challenge is up, get this template free!

You can easily take out the Valentine’s references and fill in with names and dates etc. Lots that could be done with this still.

And my heart card is in the store too. Includes cutting files. Something else that could easily be used to all year round depending on what kit you decorate it with.

Ok, I think that’s enough for me today. Thank you all for reading this far. Have a great weekend!!
