Happy New Year! January freebie

Happy New Year! The fireworks are blasting all around my house here in Germany as I am typing. I decided that this year I'd make a different resolution instead of my same old usual resolutions such as "lose weight", or the one I've had every year since I was ten, "stop biting my nails". This year, my goal is to be more positive. That means I want to choose to focus on what is good in my kids, my husband, my family, my friends, my job, and MYSELF. :)

I made a January paper to share with you. I will be posting a monthly paper each month, and eventually will sell them all as a set, so check back and nab 'em while they are free! Click on the picture to get your freebie! Sorry, the link has expired. You can still purchase them from my store!

Recipe card blog train

New collab from the Pretty Scrappy designers:

A bunch of us put together a recipe card or two to give away as a freebie! :) Here's mine, click on the pic to download. I did a lined and unlined version, hoping to give you a bit of variety. Some people like 'em lined, others hate that! :)

75% off all my items at Ahhh Scrap! New Bannerwoman Styles!

Don't forget! All of my items at Ahhh Scrap are 75% off right now!!! This is for only until Dec 15th. After that, I'm reducing my inventory into one store.

And in other news, I was fortunate enough to have the chance to test out Bannerwoman's newest layer styles. She has been busy, busy, busy making a load of styles to add to her stores! I tried out every single one in PSE 4 & 5, and I love 'em!

To be honest, I haven't used layer styles at all until I tested these, and now I am sold! Take a basic shape, add a layer style, and you have a unique, customized element! It's really neat! :)

Happy Holidays! Card/BB Page Freebie

I've been working on my Christmas card today. It's only the 6th of December, this is amazing for me! :) I usually end up sending out a "New Year's" card! Here's a peek:

I used another word art that I bought last week from Elegant Word Art by Bethany. For some reason, I find that scrapping anything that uses her word art is truly "scrap therapy" for me!
I liked the way it turned out so well that I decided I ought to share the design with you all! :) Here is a modified version that you are welcome to use as a card or brag book page. Personal use/S4H/S4O.
Here's my sample. This was last Christmas. My boys have grown up so much this year! :)
And here is your freebie, click on the picture to download. I'm so excited to share this! Comments are much appreciated. Believe me, I read and value every one! Happy Holidays!

Black Friday Sale!

Guess what??? My store at Ahhh Scrap is 50% until Sunday at midnight!!! This is the lowest price that I have set on my items so far, so grab while you can! :)

One of the BEST deals is the Texture Me Commercial Use overlays value pack. I usually sell each pack for $5.99. The Value Pack is normally priced at $14.99, but on sale it is only $7.50! It's a HUGE saving off of normal price. If you were to buy each pack separately, it would cost $23.96.

My kids have been sick, so it was a quiet Thanksgiving for me this year. I had time to do a little scrap therapy on my lonely Thanksgiving evening. I bought some sweet word art from Elegant Word Art by Bethany today! Almost all of her things are on sale right now too, only $1/word art pack! :) This is what I did with one of them:

Credits: Paper and patriotic heart from Summer Driggs' Freedom kit, cardboard from Karen Wallace, Atomic Cupcake's old painted metal effect used on word art, Military 1 Word Art pack (modified from "soldier" to "airman") from Elegant Word Art by Bethany.

Just Bead It - Add-On Frames

As promised, I've created another add-on to Just Bead It!

This is my mini kit, which is on sale today (Wednesday) only for $1 at Ahhh Scrap!!! This time, I created a few frames for you! Click on the pic to download:
The plaid frame was made from Mega-Doodle Inspired's Mega Pattern Set 03: Argyle. She just put out several new pattern sets, all which come with psd files, png overlays, AND pattern files!
The idea behind these kits is to provide you with LAYERED plaid patterns no matter what your software! The layers allow you to have multiple colors! Great of papers and elements!
This kit comes with Layered PSD Files, .pat files, .psp and .pspimage files, Overlays AND PNG Files!

New layouts - finally! :)

I finally made some time to scrap a few pages! I've missed this! I just love creating layouts of the people I love. It's the best of everything for me: I get to enjoy pictures that would otherwise be using space on my hard drive, I get to think about the people I care about, I can take time to myself, AND I can get creative! I wish I could share that feeling with everyone. :)

Here are the latest, I scrapped them all using my latest kit "Let's Hear It for the Boys"! I used Heather's QP from my kit for the last one. If you look back at one of my previous posts, you can get it free!

New Kit: Let's Hear It for the Boys! And freebie QP!

I have finally found time to complete another kit. I LOVE how this turned out. 6 tattered solid papers, 13 patterned papers, and 30 elements! It was (obviously) designed with guys in mind. I have 3 little guys of my own and a big one as well so I'll be scrappin' with this!

You can find this kit in both of my stores: Pretty Scrappy and Ahhh Scrap (40% off at both stores until Sun Oct 26th along with all my products)!

These tattered solids are included in the kit, but I'm also selling them separately for people who may not need the entire kit. You can get just the paper pack at Pretty Scrappy or Ahhh Scrap(don't forget - 40% off until Sun Oct 26th at either store).

Heather of HS Designs put together a SWEET Quick Page for you all using this kit! She's a very talented designer, and I love her work! Be sure to check out her digi-kits when you have a chance. Click on the pic below to get your QP! And please leave a comment, I love to hear from you all.

New actions from MDI!

I'm on the test team for Mega-Doodle Inspired, and she has some new actions for PSE users! The Mega-Alpha Cutter #2 action will be a huge time saver! It works in PSE 5 & 6, but not 4 or earlier. If you have an earlier version of PSE, try her Mega-Time Savers instead!

Another new product is the keychain elements and action. I've gotten to work with this one as well, and the psd files make the keychain highly customizable.

To find out more about her products and where you can get them, visit her blog here!
