Random Thoughts

I have been scrapping a lot since November. It made me really appreciate my Creative Team. It is so hard! But I am determined to scrap more this year. I am really amazed at the amount of new products that are available. I discovered digiscrapping in 2007 and had trouble finding products, well, part of that was my ignorance of great stores, but the options are far from what they are today. For a time, I was really enjoying the fantasy layouts, and I still do. It's so fun, but I also miss journaling. So no matter what your style or mood, there is something for everyone.

Is anyone involved in Project 365? I was not going to work on this because I had missed a few days. But you know what? SO WHAT if I missed 3-4 days. I really need to get over my obsession with needing to have it perfect before starting. It is OK to miss a few days right? I really will try to get at least a photo a day but I will also get over the days that I have missed. So if you had not taken a photo everyday, it's not too late to get started on the project!

Here is a place you can start, and if you register for the challenge, you will receive some free templates to get started.


How about some layouts?

Here is a cute one by Lorraine called My Funny Valentine. She used the Mood for Love Kit as well as the Sweet Velvet Alphas.

The kit is still 20% off through tomorrow night. The kit includes the word art, papers, elements, and 4 alphas.

Here's a layout by Danesa using various products.

Are you in the Mood for Love!! :)

My new kit has finally arrived! It will be available at ScrapbookGraphics.com Friday morning. This is a collaboration between the wonderful Miki of Microferk Designs. We had so much fun working on Holiday Shimmer that we had to get together again. Speaking of collabs, I also had a lot of fun with my other collaborating designer. So what could that mean? hint hint.. lol.

Alright folks, here is the debut! This kit is jammmm packed!

I hope it helps put you in the Mood for scrapping.

Now, I know you think it's a Valentines theme and yes, Valentine's Day is coming up. But it is versatile and can be used for other scrapping needs. Hope you like it!

Are you in the Mood For Love?
Something lush, overflowing with good things - something
that completes you?
OK, well, maybe this kit can't do all of that-
but it sure can come close!
In "Mood For Love" by Studio Phuong and
Microferk Designs, you get the ultimate, packed-til-it's-bursting collection.

It's based on the romantic shades of pleasing pinks, radiant reds, chocolatey
browns, delicious creams, a splash of lively yellow, and a liberal does of
spring greens!
All working to make this kit far more versatile
than a mere Valentine's kit- but one you can use all
year round for all of your

Mood for Love

Hehe. What a silly title. But I'm trying to get you in the mood for love so I can reveal a new kit. :)))

Umm soon. I hope. Trying to add the finishing touches.

I found these quick pages by Birgit Kerr recently and really love them.

You can easily convert them to 12x12 or 6x6 for gifts. Fun stuff!

Okay don't laugh at my pictures. But I am really happy I finally am able to scrap them. Gotta love quick pages.

Sweet Velvet Alphas

I am always a little sad after the holidays especially after all the anticipation and excitement. It feels like there is not much to look forward to. But this is not true, with two young boys, everyday is an adventure. So my little depression ended in a flash.

Love will soon be in the air. I hope my husband is reading this so here's a BIG HINT to you. LOL.

I am working on a lovey dovey kit that will be released very soon so stand by! In the meantime, here are some sweet velvet alphas to get you thinking sweet thoughts.

There are a total of 5 alphas. 2 are jumbled styled in tickle pink and white. 3 are a regular style and come in red, pink, and white.

They are available for $1 for a limited time!! Grab them while you can. :)
