Sister 2 Sister with a FREEBIE!

I've been so busy this week my poor little crafty blog has been a bit neglected. But no more! I've got a new release and a FREEBIE for you. A few months ago I was asked to teach a digital scrapbooking class at my church and the lady who asked me to teach knows I design so she asked if I could make a little kit to give away to everyone who attended the class. I thought it was a great idea, and here's the result! I ended up making it a full kit so that the ladies I taught would have lots of things to play with and experiment with. The class went well and I just hope they learned something useful.

I'm going to start put all my new releases on sale for the first three days they're released, so be sure to grab it while it's only $3.50! The alpha is also sold separately, which I think is really versatile! Great for boys too and definitely one I'll use often.

And here's some inspiration for ya from my great CT:
(Yes that's me and my sisters about a hundred years ago - WAAAAAAY before my kids came along! Look how skinny I am - eeek! The other two got the good genes and still look the same. Lucky!)
Okay, enough with the business - on to the freebie!!!

Includes 2 full 12x12 papers, 1 worn paper (.png file), 1 straight stitch, 1 polkadot patterned safety pin and one beaded heart element. Just click on the preview to be taken to 4shared. I hope you enjoy it and please leave me some love here on the blog if you download it! Thanks!

It's finally feeling like fall around here - yay! I'd much rather be cold than hot! Even had to pull out the big coats for the kiddos to go to school this morning. Hopefully it will last, even if it's just until Halloween. I hate being all hot and sweaty on Halloween - that's just wrong!!!! Have a great one!

New Pokies!

I've got a couple new releases today. These are some fun element packs that give your LO the look of pierced holes. There are two sets:

Pokies Basic Shapes and Borders includes one straight line border, one scallop border, one crazy zig zag border, one square, one circle, one star, one rectangle, and one heart.

Pokies Swirls and Nature Bits includes 2 leaves, 2 flowers, 2 circular swirls, 1 vine, 2 border swirls and 2 arrows (all hand drawn by me!)

You can purchase them both separately OR for a limited time (until October 31st) get them together for only $3!

That's all for today. I've got a new kit coming out next week that I made especially for some "sisters" at church (hint hint!) Have a great weekend!

Speed Scrap!

Just popping in to tell you about the Speed Scrap happening this week:

That's 8 pm for all my Texan friends! Here's the participation prize by the uber-fabulous Erica Zane. I'm pretty sure that no one can live without this little mini so I'd better see all of you there! :)

Just FYI - there are now TWO speed scraps every week at SM! One during the day and one at night. The times and days are usually different so just check in to see when the next one is! Come and play with us if you haven't before - they're so much fun!

New GG stuff

I totally forgot to post about this last week! GG Digital Designs has a bunch of new stuff out including an awesome new FREEBIE!!! Here's a look at the newest stuff (images are clickable):

This Halloween kit is great! Here's what I did with it:

Isn't Ryley the CUTEST pirate EVER?!!! Maddie was a bride and beautiful as always! Ryley still has this costume and put it on the other day - so hilarious. Josh said he looked like he belonged in the Russian Ballet or something. He's grown a little since we bought that costume for him!!!!

The new freebie this month is {Football Frenzy}

I must admit I have absolutely NO INTEREST WHATSOEVER in anything even remotely football related, but I think this kit is really versatile and so cute! I used for a soccer LO for Ryley by using the soccer ball out of GG's {When Daddy Comes Home} kit (it also has a basketball!) All her things work so well together - I love that!!!

She also has some new element packs out. The metal "soccer" on my LO above is from {Metal Minis - Sports} and there's a Halloween pack too. So much cuteness over there!!!

Grab Bag Revealed

My September Grab Bag has been revealed!

This kit was inspired by a trip to the beach my family took last month and by one of my CT members (Stacy) who is currently living in Australia with her family - where summer is just about to start!

Here are some pages my super duper CT made with {At the Beach}

That's all for today folks! Have a great weekend!

I've just been notified that my {Jeepers Creepers Add-on} doesn't have the white paper in it! Sheesh! So sorry for the mix-up. Here is the updated link:

{Jeepers Creepers Add-on} take 2!

Oh! And I've got my computer back - yay! So I can finally upload my little project.

I totally got this idea from one of my CT friends over at GG Digital Designs, Megan. I don't think she's posted her adorable project yet but when she does I'll link it up so you can see it. Sooooo cute!!

I just got some unfinished wooden letters from Michael's, painted them black, printed out my papers and glued the paper on using Mod Podge. I traced the letters on the paper and then cut them out with scissors about 1/4'' from the line before I glued them on and then trimmed the paper with an X-Acto knife after the glue was dry. I then sanded the edges of my paper and the letters to distress it a little. I didn't put another layer of Mod Podge over the top of the letters. They were glued down good enough. I then took little pieces of ribbon and stapled the ribbons to the letters so they could hang together. I tied a knot in the top ribbon so I could hang the whole project up. I also found some cute little Halloween buttons in my stash and glued those on with some googly eyes and some more ribbons. I love it and it was sooooo easy! It took less than half a day - but that includes all the drying time!
