DSD Blog Post


It’s here! (okay well technically – almost)  So many events have started around digiland that I wanted to give you lots of time to see what is going on.  For all of the events at SNP (which have now started) see the blog post below this one, or you can find all of the information in the forum HERE.

Romajo is having a huge 50% off sale.  (And the bundles are included!!)  I just want to make note that Marieke is in the Netherlands, and the dates will be from her perspective, which means that by the time you read this the sale will have already started, but it will also end about 6pm on November 4th.  I have the flyer linked to take you directly to her store.

SNP’s 2nd Anniversary and DSD Weekend!


It's the second anniversary at SNP and it's DSD weekend! Can I get a WHOOT?!! They have planned a super fun weekend for you!

The customers and designers are some of the best people in digiland and we are so very excited to have each of you actively involved in our community! You have no idea how you've touched our lives and how much we enjoy chatting with you and looking at your layouts. There is something wonderful about SNP. It's the friendships we create. It's the way our stories intertwine with those of the people we've never met in real life. It's people from all over the world uniting in this wonderful way that helps us to capture those small moments in time that make up the stories of our lives. Nowhere else can you find such an awesome group of people who work and create so closely to build such an amazing community for all of us to feel at home in. This weekend we are celebrating each and every one of you be{You}tiful people. The challenges and chats are centered around getting to know you better. We hope you'll join us this weekend as we strengthen our friendships and our community.

I'm sure there will be a lot of laughter and of course they've created a Be{You}tiful collection of goodies for you that you won't want to miss. There is a fabulous facebook hop where you can collect 25 be{You}tiful templates and they wouldn't dare celebrate their anniversary or DSD without an awesome store wide sale! There will be 3 live events each day (with the exception of Thursday when there will be only 1) where we can meet in the chat room and get a little crazy (or a lot crazy for some of us...but I'm not naming any names!). There will be prizes awarded at each live event so be sure to be there on time! We'll also have 2 challenges for you each day where you can earn the pieces to a HUGE collab (We're talking 96 Papers, 82 Journal Cards, 190 Ellies and a full alpha!!)! You'll have all weekend to complete the challenges so don't stress about getting them done quickly. Kick back with us and enjoy your weekend! Happy Anniversary SNP and Happy DSD weekend to all of you!





SO much goodness!  I hope that you can come out and join in some, or all of the fun.  And don’t forget about the storewide sale!

The Big Bang


Part of being a kit (and adults too) is all about trying new things.  Things that result in good things, and things that result in a big mess.  Now add to that science, and you have the newest collaboration, The Big Bang, by Mommy Me Time Scrapper, The Scrappy Kat, and JMC Designs.  They have created a HUGE collection releasing today!   Oh, and it is currently 50% off!!

I have spent the last few weeks scanning photos.  As prints they were in no order at all.  One event could be found in four or five shoeboxes.  Needless to say it has been a slow process.  When I heard the words “The Big Bang” I instantly thought of some photos that my father took in the 1970s.

I created 2 freebies for you today.  Partly because I wanted to show you that even though science plays a big role in this kit that there are enough elements for many other themes.  To download them, click on the previews below.

Owl Haunt You!


I must admit that when I heard the title I did groan.  Owls have never been my favourite, and I usually steer clear of kits with owls.  But something happened when I seen this newest kit from Leaving a Legacy Designs.  She has created these adorable owls herself, and have them all dressed up for Halloween.  So I had to use them Smile  Before I get ahead of myself, I should probably show you the kit so you can see these cuties.  You can find Owl Haunt You on sale for 30% off this week, and if you keep reading I will tell you about a way to get an addition 10% off.  (Without signing up or anything!)

Are they not cute?  Here is a layout with the owls, and some of the other goodness inside:

In case you didn’t notice, Owl Haunt You can be joined with Halloween Glam for one mega kit!

I want to show you a two page spread that I did using both of these kits, and I also have not one, but two freebies for you.  As with all of my freebies just click on the preview to download.

P12 October


The end of October is near, I know I can’t believe it either, and that means that Romajo is releasing her P12 October kit.  As with all kits you can find it on sale for 50% off for the first week. 

P12 October

I had to go out shopping, which I was not in the mood for, but when I arrived at my local grocery store my eyes caught all of the gourds on display.  Now me, who goes nowhere without a camera, pulled it out.  After a few minutes of taking pictures, I was feeling better and had some great photos.  I love how this kit does not compete with all of the bright sights of Autumn. It was perfect for the photos I took that day.  I also have October’s Freebie for you.  You can start the download by clicking on the preview below.

I will be back later tonight with another kit and freebie to show you.

Katie Creates has been taking some well deserved time off, but she does have this Halloween kit that she put in her store for you.  It is called Hallow-EEK!  This kit was part of the October Buffet at Gingerscraps.  She has it all bundled together and currently on sale for $4.00, but also still has all of the pieces available separately.  I love the softer palette of her Halloween kit, but she still keeps the spooky witches, black cats, and even a skull!


One of my unique Halloween costumes growing up was a two scoop ice cream cone!  I have no idea how I walked around all night but I do know that my Mom did such a great job making it for me.  So here was my Sweet Halloween:

Nighty Shadows


Romajo is releasing one of her Halloween kits today.  Nighty Shadows is full of witches, bats and even some spooky fog.  You can find it, as well as an extra pack of papers both on sale for 50% off until October 24.  Both of the previews below are linked directly to her store.


I loved the spooky scene that this kit creates, and remembered the year I dressed up as a witch.  We were fooling around while we waited for the children to start coming around.  I also used the spooky theme to create the freebie for you below.  To start the download just click on the preview below.

I know this is another short post and I am sorry. I have noticed that my depression is getting worse, and for the past few days I just can’t come up with any energy.  Not sleeping most days/nights does not help.  I have to go into Toronto by bus on Sunday, and thanks to the schedules not matching up, it makes for a long day with some long wait periods at bus stops.  So I will be quiet for a day or two, but then I have some more Halloween kits to show you!  Stay tuned.

Speed Scrap Tonight


Kimberly of Leaving a Legacy Designs is hosting her first speed scrap over at Scraps N Pieces.  Join her tonight for a chat and some fun.  If you finish a layout using the instructions you will receive a $6 coupon to her store! (If my conversion is right it would start at 6:30 PDT/8:30 CDT/9:30 EDT)


I also wanted to show you her newest kit, Halloween Glam.  It came out last week, but since my internet has been poor I haven’t had a chance to play with it, or post it here yet.  She also has available her Halloween kit from last year added to the store.  You can find Halloween Nights currently on sale for 50% off



Autumn Cleaning Sale


Romajo’s store has now been open for a year and a half!  Which means that I have been on her CT that long!  I don’t know where the time has gone.  Marieke figured that now was a good time to retire some of her older kits.  You can find them on sale individually, or for just $5.50 you can pick them all up.  Her sale continues until October 19th (if you are in America you will want to pick them up by the end of the day on October 18th.)  If you are looking for an individual product you will need to scroll down the page as they will be towards the bottom.

Dive into School


Mommy Me Time Scrapper teamed up with The Scrappy Kat to bring to you Dive into School, a part of their “Dive into…” series.  It is filled with lots of elements which you can use for back to school pages, as well as pages about creativity, writing, drawing etc.  The Scrappy Kat is having a Grand Opening sale at Scraps N Pieces, which means that you can pick up both the kit and the pack of quickpages for 50% off.  I am not sure how long the sale continues, so I would grab this quickly! 

Dive into SchoolDive into School - Quickpages

I don’t really have much to do with back to school so I went in a different direction on my layout.  I have recently started to Zentangle. To me Zentangle is a way of relaxing by drawing repetitive patterns.  If you can draw a line and a circle (neither have to be perfect) than you can Zentangle.  You can find out more at the official website HERE.

I was inspired by the patterns in this kit and used several to create my background.  I also created a freebie for you.  I kept it to the back to school theme.  You can download it by clicking on the preview below.

Il Primo Bacio


Romajo has a huge kit releasing today.  Il Primo Bacio (The First Kiss) is a mega kit, and there are tons of additional packs that coordinate with it.  You can find both the kit, and the bundle on sale for 50% off.  (So $2.25 for the kit, and $3.75 for the bundle!)  The sale runs until October 10, 2013.  Here is Il Primo Bacio:


I loved the vintage feel in this kit, and went digging for a picture.  I found this one of my Grandmother and her brother which would have been taken in the early 1920’s.  I love how it turned out.  I have also created a frame freebie for you.  If you would like it just click on the preview below.

That is it from me today.  I have outdone it this past week, and I don’t think I have been out of bed for 30 mins for the past 2 days!  I have a scrapbooking itch though, so the laptop will be coming to bed with me today.  Have a wonderful weekend,
