Christmas Whimsy and other Holiday Fun

Last night I had a friend come over and we made some Christmas tags.  I had plans to print out some papers from Holly Jolly and from my new kit and do some tags with those, but the migraine I woke up with yesterday had other plans for me.  So after dinner I ran out to Archiver's and picked up a few sheets of Christmas paper, a glue pad, some acrylic stamps, some super fine glitter, and some brads. My friend brought a tag punch and after attempting to cut a few by hand I proceeded to cut the rest with with the punch.  I'm going to have to get myself one of those.  Here are a few examples of what I did last night:

New this week at GDS I have a cute little kit called Christmas Whimsy.  It is part of the GDS December Designer's Collab.  There are several other parts from the other GDS designers.  You can buy them all and build your own mega.  My portion is a slightly larger mini with 6 papers and 20 elements.

I put together a little doodled alpha together today to match the kits. I hope ya'll like it.

I'm hosting a speed scrap at GDS on Monday night. I'll be giving away matching glitters to all who participate, so if you have a chance and want to speed scrap come join me at 9:30 EST. You can go to the calender at GDS and have a reminder set, too.

New this week in my shoppes

I've got a few new things in my shoppes at GDS and ES this week.
Here is my wonderful new kit. It is full of beautiful colors, elements, and textures.

Here is a little CT inspiration:

There is also a coordinating, CU OK glitter pack available to match.

I've also got a BRAND NEW set of Blocked Templates.

The set includes 4 layered templates in PSD and PNG format.

Both my GDS shop and ES shoppe have nearly everything on sale this week  for 30-50% off

I also wanted to mention the Digi Dish Challenge over at GDS.  I've got it up and running again this month and
have a wonderful template pack to hand out to everyone who participates.   If you'd like this pair of templates for free head on over and make me a layout following my recipe.

I made this little layout for my example for the challenge using Dream a Little Dream.

And I've made it into a sweet little QP to share with ya'll.

I've got one more layout that I just finished for my good friend Chanin's new blog event called Scrap it To Me Tuesdays. 

This is her 2nd week hosting it on her blog and looks like it'll be lots of fun. I used a Sketchology Template by Bella Gypsy from the Templatepalooza Collab with Connie Prince. I also used my Dream a Little Dream kit again.

A Sneaky Peek and a New Look!

I've got a sweet little kit coming soon to my shoppes at GDS and Elemental Scraps.  I am in LOVE with it, too.  It's peaceful and dreamy and has just enough sparkle.

If you'll notice my blog's new look, you'll get a little more of a peek at what is inside the new kit ;)  I am SO SO SO excited to have finally taken the time to dress my blog up.  I have been meaning to for months and months.  Now it's so pretty and I'm wondering why I didn't take the time to do it sooner.  To celebrate the blog's new look I've got a little template to share.

I hope ya'll enjoy the template. Be sure to check back for the reveal and another freebie on Sunday.

Happy Thanksgiving, New Releases, BIG Sales!! and some freebies, too!

I hope everyone has has had a fabulous Thanksgiving (or a great Thursday for those of ya'll not from the U.S. ;)) I spent the ENTIRE day in the kitchen. I started out making pumpkin pancakes for everyone and progressed to the big feast. Mr Bird was dressed and ready for the oven by 11:30 and we all sat down to dinner shortly after 5. There were no turkey fiascos this year :)

I'm headed out at midnight to go to Toys R Us and fight the crowds in hopes of grabbing up some super deals for Christmas. Then maybe to Wal-Mart and home. I'm hoping to do LOTS and LOTS of digiscrap related Black Friday shopping tomorrow afternoon. I'm really looking forward to shopping from the sofa with no crowds!

I've got a few things coming out for black Friday, too. They are available in my shops at Elemental Scraps and GDS for 50% off.

First I have a PERFECT kit for scrapping your fall feast. The colors reflect most of the foods on the Thanksgiving table.

and from my fabulous CT (and from the fab CT at ES, too)

In the spirit of Christmas shopping and the Holiday Season I have a collab with my pal Belinda of Dylabel Designs.

I also have these accessories to match Holly Jolly:

And in addition to those I also have some templates and a snow layer style.

There are some AWESOME sales going on for Black Friday, too!

The designers at ES have put together a fantastic FREE WITH PURCHASE kit. Free with ANY purchase. Who could pass that up??

And I've still got more to say...

Today at GDS you can get my Cranberry Jelly Alpha for free. It's today's Daily Download. You have to go there and get it, but I don't think it is up quite yet. Keep checking though. It's made to match my new Autumnal kit, but should look great with a variety of others, too.

AND one more freebie :D I have a whimiscal little alpha to coordinate with Holly Jolly, too. Free for the weekend and then is going into my shop. So grab it while it's free.
