Party Tonight!!!

Cutting back again!

Just a note to let you all know that I am stepping down from Faith True's CT. I just don't have the time to keep up with all the extra goodies plus designing, sooo... it's a sad day but it's been a good run. I've had fun working with her though, and thought I'd give you a review of some of my personal favorite LO's I did for her. :)

Bye bye True Team- best of luck in all your scrapventures!

I'm Twisted

I so love it when 2 teams I create for do a collab together- it saves me time *wink*. But seriously- this turned out SO cool! Allison Pennington and Lauren and Amy from Polka Dot Plum Designs released this yesterday! I love that it's not one of the cutesy Halloween kits (not that I don't enjoy those) but this one would be awesome for scrapping a horror movie night, or a haunted house, or anything fun scary! As you can see below, it's totally capable of being scrapped into something cute (as it doesn't get much cuter than WeeKat) but this kit is just totally rockin'!

You can grab Twisted at Polkadotplum!! Give in to the evil temptation... lol

Take a chance on me LOL

Tim (DH) said I should send this video to the stores I want to design for LOL I'm so not going to do it, but I couldn't resist sharing!

Also this is one of my FAVORITE scenes from one of my favorite shows! Also I love ABBA, I admit it- I'm a sick woman. Hope you enjoy the laugh today, I'm back off to go paint and clean the new house!

Tuesday Freebie- Fancy Pantsy Add On

Happy Tuesday Digiland! This is kind of an exciting day for me- I'm selling a kit for the first time ever :) Yes yes, it's true. This kit is pretty big, I couldn't even fit everything into the preview- check it out:This kit has:
11 Papers
2 Crumpled Papers
3 Buttons
4 Brads
2 Ribbons
5 Pieces of Ricrac
1 Full (upper and lowercase) Alpha
2 Word Art
4 Tags
1 Clustered Frame
2 Corner Embellishments
2 Ruffled Stitched Fabrics
1 Silver Curl Embellishment
2 Flowers
1 Piece of Fancy Paper Trim
3 Lines of Curly Stitching

Everything is created full size at 300 ppi- and if I may say so myself- it's so pretty up close! I'm really proud of how this turned out- the colors just flow, and it's bright and fanciful and pretty- just the way a kit should be ;)

You can grab the full kit (add on included) for $3.50 at my account at (this is a secure server, and you'll get a download link as soon as you pay for the kit- I'm still trying to figure out how to make the Paypal option do the same thing)

This is how I'll be selling until I find a store home of my very own.

And since it's Freebie Tuesday, here's your freebie! An add on to the Fancy Pantsy kit:

Tuesday Freebie- Kit Preview Template

A little late but better late than never! We're in a packing and cleaning frenzy here at Chateau Lewis- and I barely had time to get this posted for you! The shadows are for the preview only (as shadows are a very subjective and contraversial thing in scrapping lol) otherwise it's in PSD format, have fun! This one is obviously ok for Commercial Use since it's a Designer Template.

Desire from Suzy Q Scraps

More goodies from Suzy Q :o) Always a happy thing! Today it was decided in our house that I'll be skipping the idea of nursing school, and get my degree in the much less practical Graphic Design- it's less practical but it'll make me so much happier. So I'll be taking a class here and there, and eventually go back full time when I'm not juggling baby stuff :) I made this LO today with that in mind :)

Nature Walk

Another designer I get to work with this month at Polka Dot Plum is Suzy Q Scraps- it was actually really hard for me to find a kit of hers that I hadn't worked with yet! Most of the work I did before the store opened was with Suzy's stuff- guess that means I like it :) My love for a designer is directly proportional to the amount of space each designer takes up on my hard drive :) I saw this kit and had to have it- Nature Walk.

Aaaaanyway, you can grab this fabulous kit over at Polka Dot Plum! Do it, you know you want to :)

Six o Clock Wedding by Jennifer Fox

I will never forget this day...
we were supposed to have a beautiful candlelit evening wedding outside overlooking the lake... instead, we got thunderstorms, the wrong flowers, and everything went wrong!
What we got then was a beautiful imperfect indoor wedding, where we couldn’t stop kissing each other and laughing all the way through the ceremony..
It was the most perfect imperfect wedding I could have ever asked for!

My Little Garden by Jennifer Fox

This month at PDP one of my assigned designers is Jennifer Fox (yay!) and if you can't tell that I like her designs, just check out the blog- I made it with her Vintage Chic kit :) This month one of the kits I get to work with is My Little Garden- and true to form- it's awesome :) Go on down to Polka Dot Plum and check it out!

I had to scrap the pictures of Kat 'helping' me in my garden- this really meant that she was eating leaves off the peppermint and moving all my seashells around, but she was certainly having fun!
