Ready for the New Years?

I can't believe another year is coming to an end.  It's been a busy one for me.  I decided to go back to school and study photography this time last year and have 2 semesters under my belt now.  I've enjoyed every minute of it. 

I celebrated my designer-versary at ScrapMatters and then sadly had to find a new shop for my designs.  I found a spot at The Digichick and couldn't be happier.  I've spent a good amount of time in the past couple of months repackaging products and adding them to my shop there and am not quite done yet.  If you've been looking for something that hasn't been added let me know and I'll move it to the top of the list.

With all that's been going on during the last part of the year I haven't had quite as much time to design as I'd like.  However, I did find the time and inspiration to put together a new collection for this week.  I've got a fun,new collection just perfect for New Year's!




and you can get the bundle and save!


Here are a few layouts from my amazing CT:

I'm staying on as a designer at TDC!!

I've never thought I'd move shops once I got settled in at SM, but over the course of the past few months I have had to make some hard decisions based on circumstances that were beyond my control.  In November I was lucky enough to get a guest spot at The Digi Chick and I totally LOVE it there.  I've been invited to stay on as a permanent designer and I couldn't be happier! 

  This week I've got some yummy stuff for the December edition of The Chick Fix and a few other fun Christmas goodies, too.



I've also got my Merry and Bright collection in the shop this week:



And a couple more holiday alphas:



And here's a little inspiration from my CT:


Happy December y'all.

Anniversary SALE, New Goodies, and a Anniversary Freebie!!!!

I'm so excited to be celebrating my 3rd year Designerversary AND 1 year ScrapMatters Anniversary all at the same time. In celebration I'm having a SALE! I've also released a few new goodies in the shop this week.


September's Mix a Kit is Out of this World CUTE!!

The colors reminded me of my son's Halloween costume I made for him a few years ago.

He was a little Spaceman in a silver, liquid lame Space Suit. It was trimmed in blue and green tubing

AND had clear tubing filled with glow sticks. It was the most fun space man costume EVER!









Here are a few "out of this world" layouts from my Creative Team:

Some coordinating shabby, worn solid papers:
