30% off SBG Storewide for NSD May 2nd

Hi everyone,

Just a quick update. I am still on vacation. Not exactly having a blast because both of my sons have gotten sick, one right after another, so I've been spending most of the days just sitting at home. I also spent time at an ER. Big bummer. I just hope they feel better soon. With all the swine flu madness going on, it is simply scary.

I will be home by Saturday and posting some freebies on the blog. :)

Thank You

I want to personally thank everyone that left me a warm comment and/or sent me a sweet PM or email. I apologize for my moment of drama but your messages mean a lot to me and reminded me of why I am doing this. Your support means the world to me so thank you thank you!

I am actually on vacation at the moment, visiting family I haven't seen for years. So I've only been on every now and then checking my email and messages.

I'll be back in a few days! :)

For my customers

Hello everyone. I am sorry I have not posted much the last few days.

I just wanted to say that if you are not happy with your purchase, please feel free to contact me. My email address is I will do my best to appease the situation. I would never share your name with any other designers or anyone at all.

I really try my best to incorporate my own style into my kits. I love colors and well I definitely love flowers and natural elements. I always have, even before discovering digital scrapping.

I feel really down right now and hopefully this feeling will pass.
Maybe it is the busy schedule at work, the stress from family, in combination with my own sensitive nature, but I feel like I should just quit.

If my customers are ending up having to recolor things because what I've provided simply does not work, then I am doing something wrong. I try not my best to include blurry things, pixelated, or even stray pixels, but if one gets by me, do let me know.

Happy Easter

It's Good Friday! I would like to wish everyone a wonderful weekend and a Happy Easter! :)

April Mini Kit and Calendar

The April Mini Kit and Calendar is here! It's currently 20% off through the weekend.

I am a little embarassed to post these, but I did create two layouts to test the kit. It's not up to par with my amazing team, but they were fast to do. :)

Gorgeous Quick Pages

I am in a hurry today and need to put together a whole album within an hour. I grabbed Lily Design's Mother's Day Quick Pages. I am in Quick Page bliss! These pages simply rock.

This took me 5 minutes to make, maybe even less. You can't beat that! :)

Day at the Zoo

Do you have a lot of zoo or animal park pictures? I have hundreds sitting on my hard drive, gathering dust. My sons love visiting the Zoo and Animal Park. Here's my take on a zoo kit. I hope you like it! :)

Thank you for looking!

Have a wonderful week! ;)

P.S. The giraffe, elephant, and rhino are included in the kit. I noticed that it was confusing some people, but those cuties are already in there for you.

Impressions of Renewal

Scrapbookgraphics new collaboration is Impressions of Renewal. This kit is really pretty! This word is infused with promise. It implies a return to an original state after depletion or loss (think of winter and its dormant state). It suggests cleansing, repairing and growth.

The April 2009 collab from the Studio Girls was created by Alana McCarthy, Baers Garten Designs, Berna Datema, Birgit Kerr, Bluebell Designs, Coralie, Ellie Lash, Em-Ka Designs, Flergs, Hillary Heidelberg, Line Designs, Lorie Davison, Manu Zimmerman, mgl Scraps, ON Designs, Phuong Ton, sussieM Designs, Tangie Baxter, and Wendyzine Scraps.

There are 50 papers and tons of elements!

Here are some more layouts using this kit,

I haven't forgotten my challenge. I got caught up with too many family activities, Easter egg hunts, vacations to plan, and you know, the usual gearing up for warmer weather! :)

Here's a few layouts for your viewing pleasure in the meantime.
