It's Almost Here!!

Hey guys! So I admit that I haven't been a great blogger during the month of April. This month started out very rocky for me, and I haven't really been able to get caught up completely. But anywhoo, I'm hoping May will be better, and I'll be able to get everything back on track! Speaking of May, unless you've been hiding under a rock somewhere, you've probably heard of a little thing called International Scrapbooking Day or iNSD. May 1 is the official iNSD, but several sites around the digi-community are kicking off the festivities even earlier. Woot! Believe it or not, this will be my first time participating in iNSD. I hadn't even started scrapping yet at this time last year. Wow, much has changed in one year's time!

So, if you're like me and experiencing the joy of iNSD for the very first time, you may be wondering what to expect. Here's the lowdown. There will be lots of games, chats, challenges, prizes, and best of all, SALES at pretty much every digital scrapbooking site known to man. This is a huuuuge deal, people, so get those Paypal accounts ready! :)

I have been scrapping like a madwoman this week trying to keep up with all my fab designers and the amazing goodies they're getting ready to debut in a few days. It is INSANE, I tell ya (but in a good way, of course)! Every designer I CT for will be releasing at least one new product this weekend. Many of them have a multitude of goodies for you, and you are NOT going to want to miss out! Here's a little sneaky peek from Jennifer Fox Designs to whet your appetite.

Isn't it delicious?! And that's just the beginning. You'll definitely want to check in with me over the weekend as I reveal all the wonderful-ness that I've been lucky enough to scrap with already! Oh, and speaking of lucky, I've got some news for you. Beginning in May, I'll be guesting for not one but TWO of my fave designers: WM [squared] and Connie Prince! I am sooo excited! Connie has been generous enough to grant me access a few days early so that I could begin playing with her fab goodies. Let me tell ya, Connie is a machine! I've literally lost count of how many grab bags she's releasing this weekend. I'm pretty much convinced she never sleeps! So anyway, in addition to my regular designers, soon you'll start seeing even more goodies showin' up here on the blog. Did I mention how excited I am?!

Okay, that's all for now. I hope you all are as stoked as I am for this weekend! :)

New-ness and a Sneak Peek!

Hey guys! I've got some fab new releases to show you today, so let's get right to it, shall we? This first kit is a collab between Jennifer Fox Designs and Tracie Stroud Designs and is so awesome that I literally don't have the words to adequately describe it. Suffice it to say that this kit is one of my favorites of all time! Seriously the colors, the alpha...Did I mention the alpha?! Okay, let me stop babbling and let you see for yourself. Check out Bubblegum Beauty.

I honestly cannot say enough good things about this kit. If you've got girls, it is a MUST-HAVE! Trust me. Here's my LO. Did I mention how awesome this kit is? ;)

And the best part is it's on sale for today only at The Digichick, so get go get it like NOWWWW!

Now, let me switch gears for a moment. Amanda Heimann is a fantastical designer at Scrap Orchard who I've admired ever since I started scrapping. She recently held a CT call, and I was lucky enough to land a spot on her team! Woot! AND, as if that weren't enough, I got to play with her new release this week! It's a fabulous collab with SuzyQ Scraps called Going Green.

This kit is perfect for so many different types of photos: recycling, outdoor play, nature. It's amazing! Check out my very first page as a member of Amanda's team:

OMGosh, I just love it! And for more good news, Going Green is also on sale for a limited time only, so be sure to check it out!

Okay, one last thing before I go. This week I made my first-ever Sneak Peek using Haynay Designs' newest release which hits the ScrapMatters store tomorrow. Take a look.

Come back tomorrow for the full reveal! Designs by Sarah Bennett also has TWO fantastic new releases, and you don't wanna miss 'em! Happy Scrapping, everyone!

Better Late Than Never

Well guys, if you're a regular reader on my blog, you know that I always post about the awesome new releases at ScrapMatters on Fridays. And you may have noticed that I've missed not one but TWO Fridays. But, I've had some pretty heavy family stuff going on, and I truly apologize. Barring any future personal disasters, I promise not to miss anymore. Sound good? Okay then. Let me catch you up on what's new this week.

First up is a super-versatile paper pack by Designs by Sarah Bennett called Krafty Paper Pack.

If you're like me and love kraft paper, you don't wanna miss out! Here's my LO also using the March SM collab Kids at Play.

Also new in the shop today is an adorable new kit by Man in the Moon Designs. It's Called Good Clean Fun, and I'm tellin' ya. Ro really outdid herself with this one. Check it out:

Adorable, right? See, I told ya! Here's my LO. I had sooo much fun with this kit!

Make sure you head over to Ro's blog to take a look at all the awesome pages created by her CT. While you're there, you probably want to snag the coordinating freebie, right? I thought so.

Lastly, I want to show you this fabulous new template set from Haynay Designs, The Basics: Template 1. This set contains four brand-new templates that are perfect for all sorts of different LO styles. Check 'em out:

There are lots of other examples on the Haynay Designs blog if you need some inspiration. To get you started, here's my LO also using Wild Princess.

Oh, in the midst of all the craziness of the last week or so, I almost forgot to mention a bit of good news. I'm now a member of the Plum Dumpling Designs CT. Whoo-Hoo!

Needless to say I love Mary's designs and am thrilled to work with her and the other members of the Dumpling Gang! Mary has teamed up with another fab designer to bring you a fantastic new kit which will be hitting the stores soon. If you subscribe to the SM newsletter, there's also a coordinating freebie add-on inside the latest issue, so don't miss it. Here are not one but TWO little sneaky peeks to hold you over until Friday. One is for the full kit to be released on the 16th, and one is for the newsletter freebie.

Sigh...Isn't it pretty! Come back Friday for the full reveal, and don't forget to check your SM newsletter if you're a subcriber. I hope everyone has a fantastic week. Happy Scrapping!

So, what's up with practically everyone I know having birthdays in March and April? It's crazy! But, if you're in the same situation as I am, you're in luck! Jennifer Fox has released some supa-cute birthday kits that are brand new and on sale at the Digichick!

First up is your teaser from yesterday, My Birthday Boy.

Isn't it great?! Seriously, you guys, the colors in this kit will Blow. You. Away. They're that cute! Check out my LO. I just love the way it turned out!

Also brand new today at the Digichick is a re-release from Jenn called Cuppycakes. It's a continuation of the birthday theme and is perfect for scrapping all your little princesses' birthdays. Check it out.

Would ya LOOK at those polka dots?! I totally have a think for the dots, so I am looovin' this kit! AND I'm among the gazillion March and April babies, so I was able to scrap a page all about me and my recent 27th birthay.

If you're into blogging (and I'm assuming that's a yes since you're reading this post), there's also some great blogwear being re-released today.

And, if you love the blogwear, be sure to check out these cute Quick Pages made with the same My Little Garden kit:

Awesome stuff, right?! And the best part is that it's ALL on sale but not for long, so make sure you head over to the Jennifer Fox Designs store at the Digichick and check out all these amazing goodies.

Hope everyone has a great weekend. Happy Scrapping!
