A Short Hiatus

Don't you just love that face? This is my adorable, adorable little girl, M. My husband and I are loving spending every spare moment we can with her. We are also in the process of moving (possibly not for the last time in the next year - it really makes my head hurt), and restructuring our life again since we just found out that we are going to be expecting another addition to our family towards the end of next summer! Oh my gosh! So much is going on, that I need a little break.

A break to get my head in order. To get my spiritual life back on track. To spend some time with my loved ones. To get some sleep.

But I won't be gone forever! I promise! Look for me in the new year, and I will return.

Until then, happy scrapping!

"Midnight Romance" @ DD!

I just released a new kit, called "Midnight Romance"! I wanted to design something with a sophisticated style and color scheme, and I think I succeeded! It's dark, mysterious, and has just a little bit of flash.

I also made glitter sheets/styles to go along with it, and a set of rub-on word art pieces.

All the bits can be found in my shop using the images above or have a click here to see my whole store!

Happy scrapping!

Happy Grand Opening @ DD! +New Kit! +Freebie!

Woohoo! I'm having my Grand Opening @ Divine Digital this week. So, of course, that means I'm having a sale:

And - in addition to that, my kit "Pretending" has finally gone into the boutique! Yay! Pick it up, along with it's add-ons, today - while they're all still on sale! :D (There is no bundle yet because I am still working on an additional element pack add-on and an alpha - but keep your eyes open for them!)

And, of course, a little freebie, to whet your appetite. I made this cluster frame with 2 ribbons and 1 flower from the kit. :)

NEW - Paint Your World Collab w/Cindy Ritter!

This last month I have had a wonderful opportunity - I got to collaborate with another designer! I have never done this before and I have to say it was a great learning experience! Cindy Ritter (of Cindy Ritter's Scraps) is a fabulous designer, and I am very proud to share our creation with you.

This kit is called "Paint Your World". It's funky, colorful, and creative. :) Cindy and I decided we wanted to try our hands at an Art Journal style kit (if you aren't sure what that is, have some google images, on me). This kit is perfect for scrapping about your latest hybrid creations, or your children's refrigerator art, or even the flowers in your garden! There is so much in it, it's hard to find something you CAN'T scrap with this kit! :)

Let's take a closer look, shall we?

This kit will be the August Challenge Completion Prize at Divine Digital, and after that, who knows? There is talk of Cindy and I possibly opening a collab store at Divine to sell it in. The sky is the limit! :)

In order to win this kit for FREE, you need to join up at Divine Digital (if you haven't yet, why not? It's a great place!), and check out this thread for the Challenge Rules, and then go make layouts! There are 13 monthly challenges at Divine, but you only need to complete 10 of the challenges to win the kit! :) And you know you want it!

See you at Divine!

Christmas in July @ Divine Digital!

Yup, you saw correctly - It's Christmas in July! :D

Divine Digital is doing events ALL WEEK LONG! So be sure to jump in and participate with us! :)

Some of the stuff we're up to:

The Designers at Divine have come together to create a huge Build-A-Kit for your christmas scrapping! The colors are very fresh! All pieces of this Build-A-Kit are on sale in the Divine Boutique for only $1 apiece through July 31st - but after that, the prices may change, so grab them while they're cheap! I have three bits on offer for this kit:

In addition to the Build-A-Kit, I am also giving away a freebie for today's Divine Santa Stack. :) It's only free for today - tomorrow it becomes an kit add-on and is therefore $1.

That freebie coordinates with my Under The Sea kit - and the bundle happens to be on sale today in my store at $50 off (that's $4!) But that's also only for today, so hurry!

July LDS Blog Train Entering the Station!

And here it comes, my portion of the July 2011 LDS Blog Train, "Fishers of Men" - almost a full hour before I thought I would be able to have it online for you. Thank goodness for baby naps.

Thank you, those of you who stopped by this morning and then came back this afternoon to pick up my section. I hope you won't be disappointed by this sparkly alpha. :) You can pick up my portion of the kit by clicking on the image below. While you're here, don't forget to 'follow' my blog to get more information about my upcoming "Grand Opening Sale" of my store at Divine Digital, and to get more freebies! :)

Sad News and Good News

Unfortunately, as most of you (readers) will know at this point, Enchanted Studio Scraps decided unexpectedly last weekend to close their doors for good. I am extremely saddened by the loss of that tight-knit community, which was well on it's way to becoming my internet home-away-from-home. This, obviously, means that my plans to open a store at ESS this summer aren't going to come to fruition. That's the bad news.

The good news is that I will instead be opening my store next week at Divine Digital. I am very excited to make this move, as DD has graciously absorbed several ESS designers and many of it's dedicated posters. Visiting the DD forums this week has kind of been like coming home - with so many familiar faces introducing themselves.

The other good news is that I will be continuing to work on Robyn Pali's Creative Team - which just this week with the move to Divine Digital was combined with Rachel (of My 4 Princesses Designs)'s Creative Team. So now I will be creating layouts for two designers! :D

And, last but definitely not least, as if my life was not blessed, full, and busy enough, on Friday June 3rd at 9:28PM I had the honor of finally getting to welcome my little girl - Margaret Hazel - into the world. She weighed 7lbs. 14oz. and measured 20 3/4" long. She has a full head of dark hair, and gray eyes (that I hope turn blue like her Daddy's). I am so very in awe of my tiny little daughter, and enjoy every minute I spend with her (even though she is sometimes heavy and sometimes fussy and sometimes stinky - as babies are wont to be).

Keep your eyes on this blog and my Facebook page over the next few days. I'll be previewing my first kit this weekend and announcing my grand opening sale!

May LDS Blog Train

Hey, all! :) I'm sorry this post is so late going up today - Nathan and I have been dealing with craziness lately... But I do have your freebie for you! Just click on the preview below to download from Mediafire. :)

You should have come here from Becoming Peculiar. I am the last stop on the blog train. If you think you've gotten lost, feel free to check out the LDS Blog Train Blog for the full list of designer's blogs!

ETA; Wow! I got 155 downloads of this bitty bit yesterday! That's awesome! :)

Boys Day Out Sampler

Hello, all. :) Just another freebie post here.

Has anyone else noticed how heavily angled the scrapbooking community is towards girls? Most of the kits I see are more suitable for pages about girls than boys, and I've heard from several friends that they would love to see more "Boy" kits out there. So, I've taken their advice! This sampler is a preview of a kit that I am working on to be released at Enchanted Studio Scraps later this summer, called "Boy's Day Out". It also happens to be my entry in the Digi Scraps Drive-In April color challenge. :) Way to knock out two things with one color palette, huh?

Anyway, without further ado, here is the sampler kit - please, if you like it, comment and tell me what kinds of elements you would like to see included in the full kit when it's released in a couple months!

Happy Scrapping!

Kind of fitting, I think, starting off this blog with a freebie for you all.

It's a new month, and over at ESS that means a new color challenge, which means you all get a little freebie kit. :) I made it birthday themed, since today is my birthday! (Mini Kit is PU/S4O/S4H Friendly!)

Click on the preview below to be taken to the download - and while you're at it, why don't you check out Enchanted Studio Scraps? There's lots of fun challenges there, and the members are super welcoming and nice. :D If you sign up, send me a message and let me know - I'm VAdkins on most every forum. :)

Happy Scrapping!
