Nuts About Fall!

My favorite season of all time is fall.  We don’t see a lot of fall in south Texas but I love this time of year when the mornings are cool and days are warm.  I love pumpkins, smell of pumpkin spice candles, leaves changing, blue jeans and sweaters and holidays.  I recently reached 400 fans and then some on my Facebook Page.  If you aren’t a fan, what are you waiting for?  I post coupons, layouts and other fun thoughts on the page plus news and specials.  As a thank you to my fans I created Nuts About Fall!  I love the warm colors of this kit and the oh so cute squirrel.  He started off as a simple paper pieced squirrel but with a little photoshop magic he is fuzzy and furry.  Have you seen him?

Nuts About Fall is now in stores and there is a quickpage set as well.  The kit and quickpages along with the rest of my store will be 40% off for one week.  We will get to that in a moment but first let me show what my Creative Team did with the kit!

Aren’t they amazing?  I love my team and would love to have you on my team!  I am having a CT Call right now.  If you are interested in getting creative with me just send me an email.

Here is a look at the fun kit and quickpages! 

How about a freebie?  Jennifer of my creative team created a beautiful quickpage with gorgeous word art just for you!  Click on image to download!

Finally I want to tell you about my sale!  My oldest son is turning 8 this weekend!  I can’t believe I became a mom to this amazing little man 8 years ago…time sure does fly by.  In honor of his birthday I will have my whole store 40% off for a week!  Click on the image to check out my store.  I created this fun little flier from the invite I created for his party.  We are doing a putt putt party with Angry Birds as his theme for the cake.

Do you like pizza or do your kids like pizza?  Do you have a family pizza night or do you like to make homemade pizza?  I have the perfect kit for you today.  Saucy is all things pizza.  This fun kit was made for my Round 5 entry in the Designer Darling competition. All themed elements were made by hand by me, scanned and extracted…so fun!!  I just love the fun chef and pizza pieces that you can mix and match to make your own pizza.

My guys love pizza especially the baby.  He loves to have a big pile of pizza saucy that he can dig into and dip his breadstick and pizza into.  He makes such a mess but is loving every bite.  Today and today only you can grab Saucy for $2 as well as the quickpages.  There is also a bundle that you can grab as well if you want both parts.

Here a little inspiration:

These are from our Friday night pizza night

The bundle will be on sale for 20% off

Be sure to check out my team’s pages as well for some fun new layouts and a freebie or two.  I have 2 fun quickpages for you made from the above pages.  I created them for the scraplift challenge at Stuff to Scrap and Scraps N Pieces.  Click image to download.

It Ain’t Easy Being Green!



I am sure you are wondering, what in the world?  My youngest son is obsessed with monKEY (that is how he says it too…KEY is LOUD)…also known as Curious George.  I have attempted to deter him to a different movie and that is now the new Muppet Movie…so FROG is all I hear instead…sometimes we defer to monKEY but now frog.  🙂

My point?  I don’t have one except to be sure to scrap the little details in life as well as the BIG ONES.  I am bad about scrapping the birthdays, trips and other fun events but forget those little things like this or even his favorite snack right now.  I have tried so hard to give him a cookie and he keeps coming back with grapes?  I say cookie, he says grapes!  So grab a notebook and jot down those little things and remember to watch for the small things in life each day.


Pumpkins and Ice Cream!

I have two fun but different kits for you in the $2 bin this week!  First off is my July Build a Kit: Here’s the Scoop.  Here’s the Scoop is all things ice cream and sno cones!  My kids love ice cream and would gladly eat it all the time if I let them.  The second kit is my August Build a Kit: The Great Pumpkin.  As an added bonus I have included the Facebook freebie with Snoopy in your download!  So if you have summery ice cream photos or are getting ready for some fun fall pumpkin pictures be sure to pick up these two kits and their quickpages today!

My Creative Team Member Jenn has created a fun word art freebie for you…be sure to check out her blog today!

First Day of School!

My oldest child started 3rd grade at the public school after being homeschooled since kinder and my sweet 2 year old started Mother’s Day out.  My boys and I did great with the change!  Public school was the best choice for Cooper, even though I still wish I could homeschool him.  Caden man has always been by my side or dad’s.  He never would take a bottle the first year so this Mama was never too far away.  This year has been a year of growth and changes for us all.  Hubby and I took a 10 day vacation and left both kiddos with grandparents and now school!

I used my newest kit Chalk Talk to document the back to school moments.  I still can’t believe my baby is in third grade!  The planets on the blue paper are a photoshop CS6 brush that I was playing with since Cooper’s favorite subject is Science.

Caden had a great first day at Mother’s Day Out!  He went right in and played with the toys while we waited for the teacher to get there.  On the way to “school” he kept saying church so he knew where “school” was located.  He learned about his colors, shapes, numbers and animals.  He even brought home a cute art project where he stuck stickers on a sheet and colored a horse.  These two pages were done for two of the challenges I am hosted this week at Stuff to Scrap.  I am hosting the Word of the Week for the whole month and this weeks word is LEARN!  I am also hosting the Challenge of the Week for this week.  Your challenge is to find a favorite layout in the Stuff to Scrap gallery and scraplift it…easy enough right?  My Yee Haw page is a scraplift of Tamila’s awesome art page you can see here.  Remember with the challenges you earn points and with those points you can earn a gift certificate to the store!  You have until tomorrow night to get your layouts in for this weeks challenges but there are a lot of other great challenges that last all month!

STS Designer Mega Collab

Each month a set of our talented designers get together to create one amazing collab! Did you know that Grandparents Day is September 9th? And what better kit to use to make cute hybrid cards and gift albums for them than with Stuff to Scrap’s newest Designer Mega Collab, Grandparents Day.

September Build-a-Kit

This month, the BAK is working a little differently than in the past! First of all, the designers were only given a palette with a general theme of “new things”. So this month’s BAK includes all kinds of new things, new home, new baby, new school year, and more! All in this super adorable palette! Also new this month, when you purchase a build-a-kit pack, you get a cluster pack created from the various Build-a-Kit packs for free!!! Just download a text file included with your purchase to find the coupon code for the clusters.


Here’s a view of the cluster pack you get for free with your purchase!

I didn’t make a kit this month but I did have the opportunity to work with two designers parts: Growing Pains Scrapped and Designs By Snowlady both had a home theme.
Growing Pains Scrapped created Just Moved
Designs by Snowlady’s part makes a great compliment to the above kit: Dream House is great for all those home projects or building that dream home


CU Grab Bag

This month’s CU Grab Bag was centered on the theme of Hobbies! “Get a Hobby” is a great mix of commercial-use products you designers can use for creating kits. A great way to add variety to your commercial use stash at a great bargain!


New Challenges!

A new month means a new set of challenges over at Stuff to Scrap! What’s at stake? Every challenge has a number of points you earn for completing them, usually 5-10 points and bonus points for using 90% STS products. Once you reach 500 points, you earn a $5 gift certificate to the store! Awesome! Now you can grab that kit you have been drooling over!
