August 1st – DigiScrap Parade Blog / FB Train is live!

Hey ho there riders! It’s time again for the DigiScrap Parade Blog/FB Train. I have mine on Facebook again, but I also wanted to get the download link up on my blog for those of you who don’t have/want/try to stay away from Facebook. :)

Here’s my part of the train:

To get back on the train – the next stop is ChrissyW, and her Facebook page is HERE.

To go back a step to the end, that would be Peppermint Creative

Thanks for stopping by :)

August 2013 News!

So, I fell off the face of the earth in July while I took time to study for my personal training certification exam (I passed!). Now that THAT is behind me, I’m ready to start moving forward over here.

I’m no longer at TDC, but have been slowly working on adding my stuff to MyMemories. I also have it at Etsy and my personal store, as always.

The big news for this month, is the debut of the Group Therapy project at DSA! I’m excited to have been chosen to be a part of this cool project, even more that this is the DEBUT month. The swatch we had to work with was great, and I just love so many things about how it is set up. All the packs are the same size, so you can pick and choose based on what you truly love, and not feel like you should just settle for the one that has the most ‘stuff’ (been there, done that!). They also all share a similar theme, which makes mixing and matching even easier! They’re also fantastically priced!

Enough of all that, here are my products for August!

Ok, maybe I got a bit carried away. Hee hee.

I even did a layout with my things!

Here’s the ad for the project. If you follow it along, there’s even a big e-zine of all the products in action. Pretty fun stuff!

Thanks for hanging with me through all of that, and my month “off” (clearly not OFF as I made all that stuff LOL). Hopefully I can get back into the swing of things here soon – 3 weeks until the kids go back to school! Hooray! Of course, I go back in 4, but we won’t focus on that part. :)

Just Be – June 13th Release

This kit seemed really different for me, color-wise. At first I almost ditched it, but I decided to push through and see what happened. When I saw the CT girls work it, I was so so glad I did! They did some amazing pages with this kit, which always gives me the warm fuzzies.

Here’s the kit:

And a few of the stunning pages from the TDC CT!

Anita (love love the blending!):

Hillary (love the B&W photos with the white background, and her super cute, and PINK, font choice):

Suzanne (love the fun way she used the polaroid frame, and all her clusters):

That’s it for this week. Next week I have some new cutting files (shhh… you heard it here first), and a couple re-released paper packs. Stay tuned!

6/6 Releases

No, I didn’t die or fall off the face of the earth. I just sometimes have a chaotic life around here with 5 kids, and being in school, and coaching running, and training for marathons and all that jazz.

I was actually working on a new kit for this week, but I didn’t quite wrap it up in time, so that’ll be here next week. In the meantime, here’s one of my fairly recent releases back from Two Peas. I love this kit. The colors and the theme! I hope you do, too.




See you next week with a brand new kit! Yay!

A Couple Scrappies!

I’ve still been hit or miss with my scrapping, here’s are a couple random pages I’ve done.

This first one was way different for me. Not sure why. The style seems different from my usual, but yet I really love it.

Hopefully my scrapping groove is returning! I’ve had fun making some more pages lately.

5/16 Releases

No releases last week because I think I was still in the fetal position from iNSD. This week I just have some re-releases, but these pocket pages are some of my top sellers of all time, so maybe they’ll be welcome re-releases.

Here we go!


See you soon for more pages or kits or something – we’ll see how it goes. LOL

Some Scrappies!

My scrapping hasn’t been as frequent as of late with the store change and general life chaos, but I do have a few today to share. Since it IS iNSD and all. I couldn’t resist all the new goodies! :)

May ’13 DigiScrap Parade / iNSD is here!

I am crawling out of the woodwork with this blog post because – it’s freebie time!

I got to participate in The DigiScrap Parade blog train this month and I’m super excited about it. I loved the colors, and I think you will, too!

Here is the mini kit I created as my portion of the train. If you like it, just click the image to scoot on over to my Facebook page to download it!

If you’re not already my Facebook fan, definitely consider that. I have this freebie there currently, but there’s always one available. I try to switch it out once a month or so.

And if you’re doing any shopping when you’re done riding the train, hop on over to The Digi Chick! They’ve got a great sale going on for iNSD and I’ve got some fun journaling cards up this week.




If you love them all, I even have them as a bundle at an absurd price. :)

That’s all I have for now… see you in 3 months. Ha.

4/25 Releases!

One of my favorite kits is back this week. I love it, because I live it! I love to run, lift, cycle, play team sports, whatever I can do to keep busy. So, this kit has got my name written all over it!

And some layouts from the TDC team!


Also back this week is my Kraft Mega pack. My whole gallery of pages seems to have a kraft background.

And lastly, the wave templates are back – BUT! They now include the DFX and SVG cutting files for use in your cutting machines. Woo hoo!!

If you use them for hybrid or paper pages, I’d love a link back to see! I’m so excited to have figured that whole cut file thing out, I promise there is much more to come!

Until then, don’t forget to scrap with what you buy. Ha!
