Digital Scrapbooking Day 2012!

We are in full preparation mode – you know, party planning central! Here’s a peek at what we’re doing for this once a year digital extravaganza!

Our digital designers and creative team members have put together a blog hop where you can score a gorgeous collaboration freebie. In order to make it easy on you, instead of picking up minis to download at each stop, you’ll simply find the pieces to a coupon code. Then you can bring it back to the store to get this whole collaboration for exactly $0 – that’s right FREE. We’ll have the complete list a blog hop stops here and in the digital forum on Saturday morning. Happy DSD to you all of you!

We are having a weekend long store-wide sale of our digital products. Every single thing in the digital store, including new releases,  will be 25% off on Saturday AND Sunday. And as if that isn’t enough we’re having a specialDSD release date. There will be brand spanking new “stuff” in the store, including this month’s Pea Soup. Make sure you stop by and take a look at all the designers have put together for you.

Our digital creative team members will be hosting challenges throughout the day. Check back here, at the blog, or in the forums for links. Challenges are a great way to give yourself a scrapbooking kick start, and can be a fun way to get to know your fellow Peas. There will be all kinds of inspiration to keep you scrapping. Plus every single challenge will have a gift certificate winner – which if you ask me, you may as well use while things are on sale. Justsayin’.


Lots of new goodies!

I’ve been working on some fun new celebration kits these past couple of weeks. The new Celebrate Today series has crinkled Washi Tape, bright colorful Papers and a fun, funky Alpha that all coordinates together! These kits can be used for anything that you might celebrate… birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, holidays, etc! Stop by Two Peas and check them out!



Beach Day Layout by Jmgesi

I love seeing what new layouts Jmgesi will create! I hopped over to her layouts at Two Peas in a Bucket a couple of weeks ago and found her newest creation… Beach Day. I was so excited to see that she had used my Beach Freebie Elements and Dandelion Fluff Paper in her layout! I wanted to share her fabulous layout on my site with everyone! Thank you so much Jmgesi for allowing me to do so!

Taking a little break…

So I thought I would take a little break from designing and finish a page that I have been working on for some time. I’ve never been very good about doing my pages in order (chronologically or any other way) so right now my focus is Easter… last Easter… as in 2011. I know, a little late, but it’s how I roll. I’ve starting working with fabric (my new love!!) on my pages and really like how it’s been coming out. 


The little green flowers at the top are not apart of the page. They are actually little magnets that hold the layout to the metal rope on the wall.   🙂


The tag I hand stitched from scratch.


I used strips of different patterned fabric and stitched them by hand to my paper. I also used fabric fringe and distressed it with ink before also adding it to my page. Another love of mine… hand stitching on my pages.

Materials Used:
Paper: Basic Grey; Paper for Frames: Basic Grey; Fabric: Hobby Lobby; Fringe & Canvas Tag: Canvas Corp.; Embroidery Floss: Iris; Ribbon: American Crafts; Clouds: My Mind’s Eye Paper with distressed ink; Ink: Ranger
