Heartfelt Words

Yippee-skippee!! I finally learned how to make digital "felt"!!! I absolutely love the look. Here are some of my favorite words in felt. Thus, cleverly called "Heartfelt" I hope you enjoy using them as much as I have enjoyed both creating them and using them myself.

Currently, available at NDISB or Pretty Scrappy.

And here are a few cards I created using my "Heartfelt Words" and my Warm Winter Wishes Kit and Add-On Pack.

Special Bundles at Pretty Scrappy

Wahoo!! Pretty Scrappy is back and running better than ever. I've had such wonderful response from these two kits that I've decided to sweeten the deal and add a bonus to your purchase. I hope that you will be pleasantly pleased with the combos I have put together for you.

Fallin' --- The Series: These great mini kits are great tools to highlight all those wonderful fall memories. The colors and textures are warm and inviting. And who can resist such a smart, handsome looking crow.

Warm Winter Wishes: This delightful mega collab kit is filled with a huge collection of papers and elements to warm your winter memories. I love the color palette with warm cozy colors and heart-warming elements. Don't miss the yummy alpha!! I designed the letters to look like pink iced sugar cookies. And the bonus is a delightful add-on pack of icy-cool pinks and blues with a generous selection of elements.

FREE *** Fallin' *** Day 7 --- on my blog

Due to circumstances beyond our control, NDISB is experiencing technical difficulties. It is very unfortunate for everyone involved. I truly LOVE the community there. I am anxious for all the bugs to be ironed out and the new, improved site design to be completed.

Since I did not want you to think I was a total flake, I am offering you Day 7 here on my blog.

Well, here is the final part of Fallin'. I am super excited to see that so many of you like it. It tickles my heart to know that my designs are helping you turn your moments into memories.

Day 7 includes my personal favorite, the pumpkin paper. You will also find the painted daisy/twine border, as well as a special coupon goodie from me for use at my NDISB store.

Sorry, link EXPIRED!

Thanks again, and I totally mean it when I say I want to see your creations. I LOVE to leave gallery love. And I know that some of you are super creative and talented as scrapbooking artists. Your work inspires me!

As a matter of fact, here is a great page done by one of the super, sweet NDISB creative team members. This LO actually inspired me to continue the series by creating the alpha and Fallin' Two.

Celebrate NDISB's 4th Birthday With Me

NDISB is turning 4, and I have created a special treat just for the occasion.

Celebrate NDISB’s 4th Birthday with this special opportunity, to discover my designs. Every other day over the next two weeks, I will release a new part for my fun new mini kit, Fallin'. And if you do miss a day, no worries, the completed mini kit is available here and on sale for only $2.

Day 1 includes one 12x12 patterned, textured paper and one tabbed frame with glitter stripes.

Go HERE to pick up the download for day 1.

New Kit --- Sweet Dreamer

Yes, I must admit, I got really sidetracked over the last several weeks. Resulting in very little new design work from me. But I do have a freshly re-done basement den. My mom and I did it "design on a dime" style. We used her dime!! And the kids helped with the painting and putting together some of the furniture pieces.

So, to get my designer motor running again, I finally revamped one of my first kits, Starry Dreams. And I just love the results. Most of the papers are brand new and a few new elements, but everything that got carried over from the other kit got a fresh coat of design time.

NDISB / Pretty Scrappy

I hope you enjoy it! It is on sale 25% off through November 7th. I'll be posting a few layouts for inspiration soon, as well as a Quick Page freebie, maybe.

I hope to have at least two new kits in stores for you by the first of November.
