Enjoying the Long Weekend

I have really enjoyed the long Memorial weekend. I haven’t accomplished much, but it always feels good to take some time off. I have scrapped some more pages about my mom’s visit. I made two with Bree’s latest kit, and I’m making some more with her soon-to-be-released kit, so look for those in a few days. 🙂

Mom's Visit Day 1: Shopping

After buying garden furniture at BB&B (finally!) and some shoes and clothes at Marshalls, we headed to the Christmas Tree Shop. We love that store and we ended up buying a lot of cheap items, and my mom found a few gifts to bring back home to her friends. I thought it was fun how long the receipt looked! 🙂 Then we went grocery shopping and headed back home to eat sushi.

So far I’ve been scrapping chronologically and making pages that coordinate in pairs so I can put then in an album (whenever that may be…).

Mom's Visit Day 1: Warm Weather Ahead

Go figure: the garden furniture set we bought was missing pieces and was just impossible to put together. So we went to exchange it, and luckily the second time around everything worked just fine. Mom and DH put the pieces together in no time. Finally, after three years, we will be able to enjoy our lovely deck this summer!

I’ve done 6 pages, and I’m only on day one out of seventeen!! 😉

Leavin’ On a Jet Plane

No, I’m not going anywhere (I wish!), but Jenn Barrette has teamed up with Laura Banasiak to create a fun, fun travel kit and it’s making me dream of travel to far lands and remember all the trips I’ve made:

I am so in love with the colors of this kit! The world map paper in it is worth the whole kit, IMHO!! The kit is 20% off, and there’s a free with purchase add-on included in the price if you grab it quick. Here’s what I made:

Oh the Places We Will Go card

I recolored the background paper from light blue to green to make the colors pop more. I will be using this kit some more, for sure! I love it! And I’m very happy that the long weekend has started so well: I made 2 cards between last night and this morning. 🙂 Hope to create lots more! 😉

New Photo Actions

Bree of Scrap’It designs has been working on some new photo actions, and they are pretty neat!

Here’s a quick example I ran.






Pretty neat, huh? 😉 And then there’s this new pack out today (it’s 25% for a week, so grab it quick!):

There’s a sharpening action and a save for web action, both super easy and quick! Here’s my example:

Photographer's Toolbox

I LOVE this picture! And I am also loving my new (now 4 weeks old) lens! 😉

Scrapping, Finally!

I am getting back into my normal routine, and scrapped a bit finally! Of course, I started with the new releases for iNSD (and later), and pictures of my mom’s visit. 😉

First off, a page with Mari Koegelenberg’s latest kit. I am SO in love with this kit!!

She Is Here!

Then two pages with the gorgeous kit and alpha Sahlin Studio released on Friday:

These colors make me so happy! And check out the amazing alpha on my page: you can’t see it in the kit preview, but it is included in the kit and it is quickly becoming one of my favorite alphas ever!

Off to a Great Start

This last page also uses one of go-to alphas, which is on sale at 50% today for Wibbit Wednesday at The LilyPad:

I hope to be back soon to show you more pages, I still have lots of catching up to do! 😉

Retirement sale!

I’m back, finally! My mom was visiting for 2 weeks, and immediately after she left I have been stuck one whole week working on a very time consuming project at work. But I am back!! I made a little hybrid project yesterday and scrapped a page: the first after over 3 weeks of hiatus! It feels good to be creating again!! Unfortunately, though, I have some sad news: Molly DeCrow is retiring from designing. This is the very last chance to grab a few of her creations:

I’ll be back soon to share some P52 Cards pictures and a page. 🙂

More iNSD Fun!

I’m late posting this, but yesterday some gorgeous new kits were released, and I really have to share! But let me start with something for today:

#1 Mom Card

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!

Now, on to the goodies! Jenn Barrette has some fantastic new kits, all for sale 30% off in her shop.

I am SO in love with this kit!! I managed to do these 2 cards just hours before my mom arrived, but I can’t wait to scrap with this kit too!

I Love You Deer card

And look at these gorgeous collabs with Kristin Cronin-Barrow! One for books:

And the other for movies:

They will certainly come in handy to scrap about two of my passions! They also come as a bundle to save some $$$.

Changing gears, I have something else to show you, a quite extraordinary kit by Sahlin Studio and Ju Kneipp:

Boy, do I have some catching up to do!! All these kits are just sooo yummy!

iNSD Time!

It’s iNSD (interNational Scrapbooking Day) time! There are lots of fun events going on at ScrapMatters: an incredible 40% off sale, fabulous grab bags, and a free with $20 purchase kit!

Here’s the schedule of all the fun going on:

It’s also BYOC time at The LilyPad and Sahlin Studio has two very fun packs:

Also, check out Ju Kneipp’s guest products:

Aren’t those robots just plain adorable? 🙂

And there’s more sales! Mari Koegelenberg’s store is 30% off through May 8! And Bree of Scrap’It Designs has a 30% sale and a giveaway on her Facebook page:

I think this is all the news I have to share for today. But I’ll have more fabulous products to share tomorrow!

iNSD and Other Designer News

With all the excitement for my mother’s visit, I forgot to post last week’s Project 52 Cards picture:

P52 Cards - Week 18

You can see the Week 18 card here.

This isn’t the best time of the year to have your mom come visit, with iNSD and all the fun activities in the digital scrapbooking world… Of course I am delighted that my mom is here and don’t regret a thing, so I’ll have to sit out on all of the digi fun and catch up later. It has only been 6 days since I made the last few cards (one is in the post below, and watch out for the other two in the next couple of days 😉 ), but I am itching to create already! 🙂 But in the meantime I can show you all the goodies my fabulous designers have created. Mari Koegelenberg has an amazing new kit out today:

I seriously cannot wait to scrap with it!!!!! It has the right combination of vintage/classic feel, gorgeous patterns and bright colors: right up my alley! She also has a coordinating grab bag:

It is such an amazing deal! Check out the previews in the store to see what’s included. Mari’s papers are so gorgeous for hybrid too, with rich textures and pretty patterns. I can’t wait to use these products! 🙂

I am also very excited to tell you that Brianna Cox of Scrap’It Designs is back to designing after a break. She was the first designer who picked me as a CT member and I can’t wait to see what she creates in the next few months! She has already started with this gorgeous new kit:

It is so pretty! I see myself making a few crazy clustering pages with this kit. 🙂 AND, there’s more: Bree is having a CT call:

She is so sweet and being on her team is lots of fun, so do apply! I will be back tomorrow to show you some more iNSD products and drool a bit. 😉
