*NEW* Bargain Hunter + Sales + Freebie!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Today we are spending the holiday with my family and I have never been more thankful to live near my parents again! I'm here a little early because the sales start TODAY! I have so much to tell you about, let's get right to it!

*NEW* this week is my Bargain Hunter Collection. I LOVE to shop and as crazy as it is, I LOVE Black Friday. It's mostly because that's when my mom and I get to spend lots of time together. But it gives me great satisfaction to get a good deal! The whole collection is 30 % Off through 12/2. Grab it in my Oscraps Store or at My Personal Store.
I also have a Thanksgiving Weekend Sale running in both of my stores. Everything at Oscraps and in My Personal Store are 30% Off through 12/2.
I am also retiring some products. These products are 60% Off through 12/2 and then they are GONE! You can find them in the Retiring Products Category in My Personal Store or the Clearance Category at Oscraps. Or just scroll through either of my stores looking for the products that are 60% Off. It's the last chance to grab these products and more.
I was recently able to participate in a Charity Collab for the Philippines. I'm so glad to be able to help out in a small way. If you would like to purchase this collab called The Sun Will Come Out, you can head over to Mscraps to purchase it for the donation of your choice - $15, $25, or $50. It is a HUGE collaboration by many designers. Thanks for taking a moment to consider this cause.
Last, but not least, Joey made you a freebie word art for you that coordinates with Bargain Hunter. Enjoy!
I hope that you all have a blessed and safe holiday weekend if you are in the US or wherever you call home!

*NEW* Into the Dark Collection + Freebie!

Happy Friday Everyone! The month of October seems to be flying by and Halloween is creeping up on me. I realized today that the boys still don't have the costumes! Eeek! They need them for some things next weekend so I think we're going shopping today. Samuel has a list of about 10 acceptable options and Nolan wants to be a Star Wars Storm Trooper, not sure if we will be able to find that, so I'm hoping once he sees all of the options, he'll be a little more flexible on what he wants or we might be in trouble there.

So this week I have a brand new collection for you with Halloween on the brain. Into the Dark has a vintage vibe to it with less emphasis on the costumes and candy. It will be 20% Off through 10/20 and you can get it in my Oscraps Store or my Personal Store. Save more by grabbing the Bundle for 26% Off.

I'm super excited about our freebie today, Joey made you these awesome flair pieces that coordinate with Into the Dark. Enjoy!
Are you signed up for my Newsletter? Each week, there is an exclusive freebie or coupon for my newsletter subscribers and with DSD right around the corner, you don't want to miss a thing! I will see you next week!

Country Kitchen and Fabulous 50's + Freebie!

Happy Friday Everyone! We have had a busy week here in this house and to make things even more complicated, I've been a bit under the weather the last few days. The good news is that my last counter that was wrong will be arriving for installation on Monday so I will finally have everything back together again and we can put the microwave back where it belongs etc. I will admit to looking forward to the end of soccer season in a week, when things will slow down a bit for us instead of having two nights a week and Saturdays tied up. Samuel scored the tying goal last week in his game to keep them from losing so that was exciting!

This week I have a couple more things back in the stores. I will have a brand new collection next week for you, and then I will be gearing up for DSD weekend! Yay! This week we have the Country Kitchen and Fabulous 50's Collections all for 20% Off through 10/13. Save even more by grabbing the Bundles. You can get them at Oscraps or my Personal Store.

And now for a freebie! Joey made you this handy recipe card freebie that coordinates with Country Kitchen. Enjoy!
I will be back next week with a collection to get you ready for Halloween! Have a great week!

A Life Full of Riches, Unique + Freebie!

Happy Friday Everyone! Well, it's been quite a week here. I finally have my new internet and yesterday we had new counters installed throughout the house. When we bought this house back in June, it was quite apparent that a lot of things hadn't been updated since it was built in the mid-70's. We pulled down all the wallpaper and painted and set to work one thing at a time. While in great shape, the counters, two of the sinks, and a toilet were a lovely shade of golden yellow! One of the bathroom sinks had been replaced at some point with a white one. So my house is in quite a bit of chaos as drawers are still all over the living room along with things that were in the cabinets for my kitchen, built in desk, and both bathrooms. I really love my new counters and once I get everything settled I'll be sure to make a before and after LO to share with you. BUT to make matters worse, Andrew didn't get something tight or something when he hooked up one of the sinks and when we woke up this morning, my whole laundy/bath, entry and basement storage area were flooded! So now we're dealing with that mess too! Thankfully most of my boxes in the basement were off the floor and there is a drain but we had to unpack a bunch of stuff we stored and that's now all over the playroom in the basement. Oh well! Life goes on and eventually my house will be back in order!

So, being that is was one of those weeks......I have two more things back in my stores this week. Unique and A Life Full of Riches are back and 20% Off through Sunday. Save more by purchasing the bundles. You can get them at Oscraps or in my Personal Store.

I also have a freebie for you. Joey made you this cluster frame freebie that coordinates with A Life Full of Riches. Enjoy!
See you next week!

Back in the Stores + Freebie!

Happy Friday Everyone! Boy, what a day it's been! Our internet went out this morning (I think the receiver is broke) so it's put a delay on everything. It was really the push we needed to change over to the new fiber optic internet that is now in the area, so I'm writing from Andrew's office since I can't connect at home! Hopefully we'll be all set come Wednesday when they come to install the new internet.

This week, I wanted to get things back in the store that haven't been there in awhile. So the following Collection are back: Girasole, Child at Heart, Autumn Opulence, and Garden Patch. Everything is 20% Off through Sunday at Oscraps and in My Personal Store. Be sure to check out the Bundles for even bigger savings!

And Joey made this lovely cluster frame freebie for you using Girasole. Enjoy!
See you next week!

*NEW* Happiness is You + Freebie!

Happy Friday Everyone! I'm glad that the weekend is finally here! Are you?

This week, I have a brand new collection for you called Happiness is You. This is definitely one of my favorites. Fancy Chalkboards are a hot trend right now. I'm thinking of putting one in my kitchen because I think they are so cool. So I've brought the fancy chalkboard look to the elements in this kit and paired the blacks and dark grays with bright orange, red, and yellows that just pop out in the LOs. The whole collection is 20% Off through 9/22. Save even more and grab the Bundle for 37% Off. You can get Happiness is You at Oscraps or my Personal Store.

CT LOs using Happiness is You

Want to get that chalkboard look?

I thought I'd give you some tools to get that chalkboard lettering look on your LOs. Whether you want to do your own title work or you want your journaling to look like it's written in chalk, there are a few simple tools you can have to make it quick and easy.
First, you need the right font. Here are a few of my favorites:
All these fonts are free for personal use at (please check TOUs for commercial use).
Bergamot Ornaments - perfect for those special little flourishes!
Second, you need an awesome chalk style set to get the right look. Here are a few options at Sugar Hill Co. that will work nicely for this. I'm sure there are others out there as well!
It also easy to get colored chalk by merging your chalk style into your text and then clipping your color to it.
I also have a Happiness is You Border freebie that Joey made for you. Enjoy!
I'll see you next week!

Upper Classmen + Sale + Freebie!!

Happy Friday Everyone! Well, Fall seems to have arrived today. I think it's the first day in a long time that it's not supposed to reach at least 70 outside, the high today will be a pleasant 65. I'm not complaining, it's really nice when just a few days ago it was 90 outside! But I will start to complain when the snow starts flying as that's never been my favorite weather. It will be nice tomorrow for it to be a bit cooler when Samuel has his first soccer game of the fall season!

I have a few things to tell you about today. First - I have revamped my Upper Classmen Collection. This one hasn't been in any of the stores since OSD went down and was part of a Block Party. This collection was made with your High School students in mind but it works for any school related LOs. I have added new elements and papers to the kit. I updated the Words to include another class year so we can cover all our current high schoolers and few years past for those still making their albums. And I added a brand new set of Journal Cards. It's all on sale for 20% Off through 9/15 at Oscraps and My Personal Store. Save more and grab the whole Bundle for 39% Off.

Oscraps is having a Fall into Savings Event and Sale!! Yay for Savings!!
My whole Store is on Sale for 20% Off . Want to save more? I have a selection of products in the special Fall into Savings Category and they are 30% Off. BUT if you spend at least $10 in the Fall into Savings Category (on my products or a combination of any products in that category), you will Save 40% on the products in the Fall into Savings Category. AND if you spend at least $20 in the Fall into Savings Category, you will Save 50% on the products in the Fall into Savings Category. You can visit the Fall into Savings Category to see what is there. Unfortunately a snafu with the sale made it so that the items in this category are not showing up in my store so you will have to go to that category to find them. We also have some events and challenges going on with prizes in the Fall into Savings Event Forum so be sure to stop by and check out what is going on!
And now for an Upper Classmen Freebie! Joey made you this cluster frame that coordinates with Upper Classmen. Enjoy!
I have a brand new collection for you next week! I really enjoyed making this one and can't wait to share it with you!

*NEW* SoHo Chic + Freebie!

Whew! What a busy day and week! With school starting back up, things got busy rather quickly. The boys have started back to school and start soccer this week. Hopefully we'll be settled into our school year routine rather quickly!

This week I have my SoHo Chic Collection. The kit was originally part of a collab kit of the same name. I've expanded it into a full kit with new papers and elements. I also made a brand new alpha made with doilies. This alpha can be used with any collection you have. All of it is 20% Off through Sunday in my Oscraps Store and my Personal Store. Save even more by grabbing the whole Bundle at 37% Off.
Joey made this awesome Stacked Paper Freebie for you that coordinates with SoHo Chic. I hope you are signed up for my Newsletter. I send out exclusive freebies and coupons just for my subscribers!
Until next week!

Vintage Spring + Freebie!

Happy Friday Everyone! I hope everyone in the US has a great Labor Day weekend, full of fun, family, and friends. I live in Michigan, so our schools don't start classes until after Labor Day. I am gearing up to send my boys back to school next week. Samuel will be in 1st grade and Nolan is going to Pre-K. It's going to be a big adjustment for me as Samuel did half days for Kindergarten and Nolan's Pre-K program is 9-2, three days a week. That's 3 whole days with no kids around! Hopefully, that means I can do lots of designing!

This week I revamped Vintage Spring and have it back in my stores. Vintage Spring was part of the April Mix a Kit at ScrapMatters so I turned it into a full collection. I've added elements and papers to make a full kit, and a new add-on, Journal Cards. This collection is 20% Off through Sunday at Oscraps and My Personal Store. Or you can purchase the Bundle for 26% Off.

I also added a couple more things to my Oscraps Store. My Retro Fabulous Collection and my Vellum products. They are on sale for 20% Off as well. Save 33% on the Retro Fabulous Bundle or 26% Off on the Vellums Bundle.
And last but not least, Joey made you a Cluster Freebie that coordinates with Vintage Spring. Enjoy!
See you again next week!

*NEW* Home on the Range Collection + Freebie!

Happy Friday Everyone! Today is Samuel's 7th Birthday so we have a busy day today getting ready for a family birthday party tonight. I can't believe how big he is getting, he'll be starting 1st grade in a week! I will be busy all afternoon making a Minion Cake as he has requested a Despicable Me theme. I had the hardest time ordering his decorations. I'm not sure if it's because it's a brand new theme or really popular but Party City had next to nothing so I had to piece together a couple orders and have most of it shipped. So I'm going to keep it to the point for this post as I have much to do today!

I really love the new collection I have for you today. A couple of my CT girls requested a cowboy/cowgirl themed collection so that's what I have done. I had a lot of fun with this one! You can get Home on the Range at Oscraps or My Personal Store for 20% Off through Sunday or Save More and grab the Bundle for 40% Off!

Joey made this cluster frame freebie for you that coordinates with Home on the Range! Enjoy!
I will have a revamp of a former Mix a Kit next week. It's back as a full collection with new elements, papers, and a new add-on. See you then!
