Jenn Barrette Is Back!!!!

I am thrilled to share the news that Jenn Barrette is back to designing after a couple years’ hiatus! Boy have I missed her designs!! And she is now back with a focus on illustrated designs – just my cup of tea! ย You can find her shop at Sweet Shoppe Designs.

I am in the middle of a crazy busy time (lots of work trips coming up) but I just had to make the time to use a couple of her new kits! I love them!


I used this adorable succulent-themed kit to make a page about Hawaii – why not?! ๐Ÿ™‚ I love all those floral embellishments!


This kit was so fun to use! I realized I had the perfect photo for it! ๐Ÿ™‚

More DSD sales

Are you all DSDed out? I hope not, because I have some more enabling to do!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Everything in Jenn Barrette’s store is 30% off, including this gorgeous new kit.ย I am so in love with that floral + bird print, that I made it the base of this card.

It is so easy to whip up a hybrid card when you have such pretty papers. Just add a sentiment for the focal point, and you’re all set.

Heck Yeah

Yay for the weekend! And yay for the World Cup.. are you a soccer fan?? I sure am! ๐Ÿ˜‰
Anyway, back to scrapbooking.. here’s a lovely new kit that I had fun playing with this week!ย I love the orange, teal, yellow and gray combination! Here’s the card I made with it.

Enjoy your weekend! I am alone this weekend so I’ll make sure to get my craft on, yay!

Hoppy Easter!

OK.. Easter is tomorrow, but I just have to share this adorable new kit by Jenn Barrette (20% off today) and the card I made with it!
These colors are just so pretty, and they look so vibrant when printed out on matte paper! I made a trifold card.

Happy Easter!


I love the greens and the navy colors in Jenn Barrette’s latest kits!ย I made a collage of my favorite bits of the kit on this card:

Hope you’re having a great weekend! I never enjoy the switch to daylight saving, but other than that I am enjoying some time off. ๐Ÿ™‚

Black Friday

I’m a bit late in posting this, because Black Friday = putting up the tree for me! ๐Ÿ™‚ But there are some very sweet deals to be had online today! I’ll start with a Christmas kit, since I am in Christmas mode now that the tree is up. ๐Ÿ™‚

Seriously, isn’t this the perfect Christmas kit?? I made two tags with this gorgeous kit.

And I also made a free printable with a flattened version of both tags that is available on the Sahlin Studio blog. ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy!

Check out all the sales and promotions going on at The Lilypad!

Next up, a kit by Jenn Barrette –ย I made a card with it,

and a page too!

Finally, a wintery kit by Mari Koegelenberg.ย And here’s my page – we got snow early this year!

How was your Black Friday? ๐Ÿ™‚

More December Daily preparation

I have a couple more cards to share for my December Daily album. These are from a gorgeous Christmas collection by two of my favorite designers ever (isn’t it just awesome when they team up?? ;)), Mari Koegelenberg and Jenn Barrette.
Here are my mock pages (photos are from last year, but these cards will go in the 2013 album).

Fa La La La Laย by Jenn Barrette and Mari Koegelenberg
