Summer Blast @ MScraps!

 The winner is... Georgianna! I've already e-mailed you...

I really enjoyed reading all of your comments on Summer (although I was bummed that so many of you didn't leave e-mails addresses, because either your blogger profile, or your blog, doesn't show one!). Personally, I have only begun to enjoy summertime since we moved to the coast, because it rarely gets above 75F here, and that's already pretty uncomfortable for me. Usually it's in the low 60's, which is just how I like it. Sure like the vibrant colors and peppy feeling, though! And this is what this kit is all about.

Summer Blast is a kit filled with fun stuff--hand-made and hand-drawn flower doodles, funny bits of flair, colored overlays, photomasks, crazy borders and stitching... it makes some gorgeous pages, as you'll see from the fantastic crew layouts!

And the sneak peak was made with Linda's gorgeous layout:

Here are some other amazing pages (I'm sorry I don't have space to show them all!):

More Textures, and Some Stitching!

Happy Thursday everybody! Hope you had a wonderful iNSD weekend--I sure did, scrapped my fingers off! And I also cranked out some more textures, this time patterns, and another, lighter, paper texture pack. The latter are just perfect for adding a touch of 3-dimensionality to a patterned paper, did you know? These textures say they're for Commercial Use, but I really mean it's Commercial Use OK (including designing materials, or scrap-for-others/hire)--because they're wonderful for personal use of course. They also look really good over photographs! And, some stitches, just 'cuz... =)

And here are some very fun uses of the stitches:

Good layouts for noticing the textures, too!

I hope you have a lovely end of the week... =)

Happy InterNational Scrapbooking Day Weekend!

Phew, there are so many things going on @ MScraps that I can barely keep up! Sales (my products are off anywhere from 30-50%, plus there's a Free With Purchase of mine going on, as well as the store's), challenges, and a blog hop train! I sure hope you have lots of fun--I intend to scrap my fool head off!

Here's the blog train portion! If you get lost, just check out the list on the MScraps forum. You should have come from France:, and you'll next go to Helen: . You'll collect a gorgeous kit if you pick up all the parts--I just love this color scheme, and the designers went crazy! Just click on the image below to start the download:

  Have a wonderful time this weekend!!

New Stuff, New, New, New!

Oh my gosh, I don't even know where to start. Well, for one thing, I'm opening a new section of my store: Commercial Use items! These can all be used for Personal Use of course, but it's also for designers, photographers, or other artists wishing to expand their toolbox a bit. The first three items I have for that are collections of texture: Fabrics, Paper, and Complex.

Also, I have a Free-With-Purchase deal going on: buy more than $4.00 (anything in my shop!), and get this set of stitching for FREE (don't forget to add it to your cart, and it will zero out at check-out time):

And to top it all off, I have a gorgeous set of 7 templates (perfect for the Project 365/52/12 you have going on) from the "A Year of Hope" collection coming out, in the clean and simple style (which makes scrapping go really, really fast!):

And the CT have made some lovely pages:
