Using Spring Rain:
And in case you missed it, my sale coupon good through next Thursday on your entire purchase, in celebration of my big reveal over at The Daily Digi:
I’m never sure if that should be “release” if it’s just one product, but “new release” sounds sort of wrong, doesn’t it? I may have to just start saying “NEW STUFF Y’ALL!!” because that always sounds awesome.
Oh how I love this new kit. Maybe it’s because the streets and sidewalks here in Wisconsin are stuck in the Winter/Spring purgatory that happens ever year – where the days are warmer and the snow is melting, but you’re not quite sure whether it’s safe to emotionally invest in it. And I really really want to invest in it!
A couple of weeks ago one of the creative team members at CatScrap asked me if I’d be willing to tackle a Spring Rain kit, and she had the whole thing planned out in her mind – the colors, the mood, the elements. It was all so inspiring I started working on it right away while also finishing up other projects. She’d already nailed down all the important parts, so I was honored to try to bring it to life for her.
You can pick it up in-store now, and don’t forget to use the 20% off coupon in my last post to save yourself some dough! And speaking of dough, two of my closest friends today were like “Why does your coupon say lucky 130 lbs?” And I was thinking to myself “What in the world are they talking about?” then I went and looked at it. It’s actually “lucky13″ and then “OLB” (for one little bird) because 13 is my lucky number. So, sorry if that confused anyone else. Haha. It’s an “o” not a zero.
I’ll be back with CT inspiration this weekend, as well as some inspiration from my portion of The Digi Files. My cup truly runneth over in this department, I’m really blessed to have so many amazing artists who feel inspired to use these products I make – and this week, once again, was an embarrassment of riches from my CT and the CatScrap CT. So many of these artists create very nuanced, intricate pages that just can’t be showcased properly in a 3×6 grid of thumbnail layouts. So make sure you stop back (or subscribe to me, you all are using Google Reader, right? Revolutionize your life!) and get your inspiration on.
I hope you all have a truly marvelous weekend! Enjoy the sunshine!
I’m just thrilled beyond belief that I was asked to be a part of The Digi Files #15 this month. My big reveal is today, and you can go check out my portion of TDF15 at The Daily Digi Website. I’m in some really great company this month and think The Daily Digi is such a great site, packed with so much relevant information about scrapbooking and just life in general. I don’t know how they come up with so much material, quite honestly. Then they top it all off by offering the monthly Digi Files products with 6-7 big, full products in them for $5. It’s insanity really, but it’s my kind of insanity!
The entire assortment will be available on their site until March 31st and then it’s gone baby. You’ll have to hunt everything down individually after that! Be on the lookout for giveaways throughout the month, too, because there will be Gift Certificates up for grabs from all of the sponsors. Also they choose 7 people each month out of all the people who purchased The Digi Files and those lucky winners get $20 worth of GC to two of the sponsors stores. It’s a lot of opportunity.
To celebrate my big reveal, I have a coupon for 20% off my store for the next 7 days, so clear out your wishlists!
Also I have a sneak peek for you of my new release for tomorrow at CatScrap:
So sneaky! My newsletter subscribers get early access to my new releases, so you lucky folks will be getting an email with a link (and the coupon code) later today so you can snag your copy early.
See you tomorrow with the whole enchilada!
It’s an atypical release day for me, normally we do all new releases on Fridays, but this week I’m a few days early. Surprise! I have boatloads of new stuff for you today.
A couple of weeks ago I was presented with the opportunity to collaborate with Leora Sanford of Little Dreamer Designs, and after I stopped squealing and jumping up and down in my living room I sat down, calmly collected myself, and said “Why yes, Leora, I would be honored!” Or at least in my mind I like to pretend that I was all coherent and classy like that, but the reality is that it was probably more like “OMG! YES! A million times YES!” I can’t say for certain because I blacked out shortly after that.
I love Leora Sanford’s designs, and not just because I’m on her team (I am). She epitomizes everything that inspires me to create: clean, minimalist designs with unique elements and color palettes that make me swoon. I want to be just like her. But not in a creepy Silence of the Lambs sort of way.
We put our collective minds and hearts into this kit, and I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we enjoyed creating it. And as always, it’s available for 20% off until this Sunday, February 21st at midnight EST. AND, if you purchase the full kit between now and then, you get our template set for free! Just add both items to your cart and the templates are on the house.
The templates are free with purchase until Sunday at midnight EST!
Also this week I created two element packs, one is a set of scratchy drawn borders for your pages. I’m addicted to these sorts of things, they’re one of my “go to” items. I like to recolor them, change the blend modes on them, etc. These were created as vector images and shrink down beautifully to be used to frame photos or draw borders on paper pieces. Love love love ‘em!
And a set of word art that I was inspired to do while taking a little online survey. I thought the whole premise of being surveyed about everyday life was a cute idea. Sometimes I wish I could just slap a label on things like “I am THIS bored with work”. Haha.
Thanks for checking in with me again this week, I hope everyone has a great weekend. Are you all keeping up with the Olympics? I’m totally addicted.
A few minutes ago he sent me a link to these, and they’re such a good idea. Universal Lids for jars, from the Unica store:
[via Unica Home]
You know how sometimes you just wind up with a cool jar, and you really WANT to have something to do with it, but in the end you wind up pitching it into the recycling bin because you don’t want to be THAT person. The person who winds up with a cupboard full of empty jars, and then one day a friend stops by and they’re looking for a coffee mug and you’re like “NO! NOT THAT CUPBOARD!” but you’re too late – because they’ve already opened up the door to your deep, dark, secret jar collection?
Or is that just me?
Anyway, these would totally add some sanity to a situation like that.
