Great kits I used lately

Hey everybody, I've gotten to play with some wonderful kits from the Creative Teams I am on, here are a few of them.

Each kit is linked if you'd like to view it in the store

Apple Blossom by Jen Maddocks Designs 25% off

Jen Maddocks newest kit Apple Blossom is in the store today and it's 25% off! I just love the colors in this sweet kit. It's so versatile! I used it for a flower garden visit, but it would be great for Easter photos too. Check out that word art, I still need to do another page with this kit...too much goodness to fit on one page.

Plum Dumpling Designs new Kit: Rabbit Tales

I realized that I haven't scrapbooked just about any of the 12 Easter Egg Hunts my son has done (wait, did he do it last year??? - ugh, my memory!) Anyway, I must've been waiting for the right kit. Rabbit Tales includes a special treat if you pick it up before 4/7 - you get the "basket case" alpha for free!

I'm super excited to have been selected for Plum Dumpling Designs Creative Team! This is the first kit I've worked with and I just love it! Mary is so creative and her work is quality, it makes scrapbooking so much fun. I naturally put a lot of pressure on myself to make a nice page, but this kit was so happy I hardly had to reassure myself at all. I can't wait for the next page I get to work on.

Rabbit Tales is 20% off through Sunday

Here's the page I created with this kit! My cute little 5 year old boy running around to find the eggs that his Grandpa (he calls him "Paka") hid

Digital Dandelions is now open!

As part of the creative team for Jen Maddocks, I had the privilege of working with the collaboration kit Take Flight. This collab is available at the new Digital Dandelions store that opened TODAY! Come celebrate and pick up the new kit for free!

Here is a preview of "Take Flight" - FREE with any $10 purchase

Are freebies all I ever post? Here's more!

Ha, It feels that way!
Today I have TWO freebies for you using Jeanine DeOre's newest collaboration with Plum Dumpling Designs. Their Sunshine in Your Heart kit released Friday, it's ready for your hot little hands.

My husband and I are considering adoption of an older child. It's kinda scary!
I enjoy getting my feelings out on "paper" now and then, it seems to really help me clarify my thoughts rather than constantly mulling over the same things. Here is the page I created on the subject and below that is a link to a template/quick page. Since the woman silhouette is so necessary to the page, it is included for you! The little butterfly is there too!!!

Thanks to Plum Dumpling Designs and Jeanine DeOre Designs for permission to create and give away this freebie! Personal Use only please.


One of Jeanine's CT Members - the fabulous Betty - compiled a list of 30 quotes for you that celebrate women and the challenges we go through. They'll work great with this kit!
Find them here in a Google document you can download if you like!


I took a few of Betty's quotes and made word art. The Happiness one is a little hard to read here, but the full size version is just fine. It says "Happiness is something that comes into our lives through doors we don't even remember leaving open" - Rose Wilder Lane
