Try Out Some Glitter

I have recently learned how to make really good digital glitter.  I'm so excited because I love glitter and now it won't be all over my house!  I started making glitter that coordinates with my kits because then you can use it for your title or any other embellishments that you add to the page.  It's a fun way to add some sparkle!  The glitter can be purchased seperately or it's free when you purchase the kit that it matches.  I thought you might like to try a style so that you can see how it looks.  In your download, I include .asl files for PS and also .png files for those who have programs that don't use styles.  If you have any questions please ask!

Here are some of my kits that have matching glitter.

I guess you're ready for your freebie sampler after all that!  Enjoy!!

I Have A New Computer

YAY!!!  I have a new laptop and it is so fantastic.  Sorry for the delay in blogging, but I got out of my groove with the computer transition.  I'm trying to focus again and get things done!  Since my computer is super fast like a rocket, lol!  

SOTB is going to be down from the 28th through the 2nd for a server switch, so I am going to have a bunch of new kits going up on the new server after the 2nd.  I've got a baby one done so far and I have a boy one half done and a spring one also half done!  Some new glitter styles too, woohoo!  I love glitter!!

Since the site is going to be down, we will be doing Speed Scrap via email!  If you haven't been introduced to speed scrapping yet, this will be an easy way to try it out.  You will receive all of the instructions in your email on Tuesday at 8pm EST (that's our usual speed scrap time) and then you have 2 hours to complete your layout and upload to the gallery.  The gallery is supposed to still work during the server move, but if it doesn't you can email me the layout.  

If you would like to join in on the email SS, send me your email to!  I hope you will all try it out!

I made a pretty little word art set for all of you!!  Grab it now, it will be part of a larger set that will match my new spring kit, coming soon!!

I have been bad this week, no blog posts, yikes!!  The reason is my computer is finally kaput.  I can't open PS without it freezing.  Without PS, I am lost.  No designing and no scrapping!!  But, I am getting a new computer on Thursday, woohoo!  The computer I'm on now we have had since 2002 so I think it is time for an upgrade, lol!

Your reminder is that speed scrap is tonight, please come over, we have so much fun!  It's actually an extra special crop tonight, mine is at 8pm EST as usual, but then we have 2 more right after!  A long night of fun and freebies for you all!  So join us in the chatroom!

Here is the gallery with some of our speed scrap creations!!

Country Primitive

I found this color palette that I completely loved, but it has taken me weeks to figure out what to do with it.  It was my first designer block.  But, finally, it took on a country primitive theme that has turned out so cute!  I am very glad to be done with it so I can move on, lol!  I really love the direction it took though.  Today I have a quick page for you so you can sample this lovely little kit!  Don't forget about the template challenge, you have until Thursday.  Also, my next speed scrap is this Tuesday night at 8pm!  Don't miss it, we had so much fun last week!
