Welcome to my blog! If you found my site by following a link then you're probably a scrapper or paper crafter, so hopefully you'll find something that interests you here! I've been paper scrapping for almost 6 years and digi scrapping since the beginning of 2007. I started designing digi scrap kits in April 2007 and opened my online store shortly after that. I am totally hooked on digi scrapping!!!
My other main hobby is card making, which has taken a back seat to scrapping lately!
On this site you'll find news of my latest creations, new layouts by myself and my Creative Team, general chat and - of course - lots of Freebies!
Please feel free to grab some freebies, browse my store and don't forget to leave a comment! Thanks for stopping by!

Design Contest Round 2....and a Freebie Add-On!

Hi All,

Here I am looking for your votes again! I've uploaded my entry for round 2 of the Stone Accent Studios Designer Contest. This week there were 33 entries.....that means if you register with SAS you can download all those kits for free! We were given a color palette this week (as opposed to a theme last week) so if you download a few of the kits you should be able to mix and match and end up with one HUGE mega-kit!! All that is asked in return is to please leave an encouraging comment for any of the designers whose kits you download. If you see a kit you'd like, simply click on the thumbnail and you will find the download link in the kit description. If you haven't yet registered with SAS....it only takes a minute..and it's a great scrap site. They have loads of challenges going on this month...so join in the fun!

When I saw the color palette I wasn't sure which way to go with it, but it reminded me of evening colors....so I went with (what better way to spend an evening) Girl's Night Out! As well as the usual flowers and bows I wanted to add a bit of bling to the kit....so I got my digital camera and took some photos of a couple pieces of vintage jewellery I've collected over the years, some makeup and a perfume bottle. Then I had the longgggggggggg task of extracting them all....but I was very pleased with the way they turned out! We were asked to make 20 background papers and 20 elements, plus a QP. I had so many more pieces made that I decided to make a Gift Bag A Day...4 in all, starting today. Each freebie contains 5 items....so do come back each day until Thursday to collect them all. Your first one is at the bottom of this post.

There are some really beautiful kits in the contest this week....so although I'm asking for your votes (if you like my entry of course!)...I'm also askng you to vote for an other kits you like. You may choose 3 or 4 kits to vote for...and can only vote one time. I really appreciate those of you who took the time to vote last week...and would appreciate even more votes this week!!! :)

This week's gallery is here and you can cast your votes here.

Here's a preview of my kit - Girl's Night Out.....

    Your kit is great! I'm not telling for whom I voted because I wasn't suppsed to vote for ALL of the ones I thought deserved it and I prefer to keep my "coin flip" a mystery. But I will encourage your blog readers -
