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.

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!
