I recently joined the CT for Makita Studio over at Little Dreamer Designs.  She’s coming out with a gorgeous new kit on Tuesday.  Below is a sneak peek.  Hop on over to her blog for a chance to win the entire kit for free!


been awhile!

as always, it’s been awhile since i’ve posted.  i thought maybe i’d share a few recent LOs, so here we go:

Jennifer Barrette released a super cute beach kit yesterday called “Making Waves”:

WM[squared] released an adorable kit called BBQ Weather that was just perfect for some pics I had:

and here are just a few others from lately (images are linked for credits):



this isn’t actually new, but i came across it today and really like it, so, since i never posted it, here ya go!

Actually, we’re finally just beginning to experience a bit of summer weather here in Vancouver.  Temps have been in the upper 80s and we’re roasting, but enjoying some sunshine!  That’s not stopping me from thinking about Christmas though, as Scrapmatters is having a great Christmas in July sale!

Be sure to check out some of the awesome Christmas/Winter kits on sale this week!  Here’s a little inspiration from my gallery (images are linked for credits):

(probably my favorite Christmas kit EVER: Christmas Cheer by WM[squared])

Hey there!  You are nearing the end of the blog train, but I hope you’re not losing steam yet!  (I’m sorry that was so corny!)  Before I get to my template, Wendy wants us to share about our favorite birthday.  I’ve had a lot of great birthdays, but my favorite would have to be my 24th.  At the time, I had been living in Mexico almost a year and had seen very little of my family.  My birthday is in mid-January and I hadn’t gotten to go home for Christmas.  My dad decided to come down and spend my birthday (and the week surrounding it!) with me!  The night before, we had dinner with the missionary families I worked with.  Then, on my actual birthday, my dad, myself and I went to the zoo, and out to dinner at Outback (a rare treat in Mexico!).  Finally, the next day, a bunch of my Mexican friends came over for a party and gave me the traditional “mordida” (where they smash your face into your cake.  messy, but fun!).  So, basically, I got to celebrate for 3 days!  Who doesn’t love that?!?  Here’s a pic of my dad and I with my first cake – I’d just discovered they were trick candles!

Now, what you’ve all been waiting for….a(nother) free template!  Yay!  I love templates!  Enjoy!  (PNGs are included)

The Latest

do two posts in one day make up for months of no posts?  no?  oh well!  i just wanted to show you all the kit that WM[squared] released yesterday.  it’s called “Tropical Paradise” and it’s absolutely fabulous!

the bundle is a steal!  and oh so much fun!  here’s what i did with it:

be sure to check it out and grab it quickly!

a sweet forever

wow, it’s been a sweet forever since i last posted anything.  i’d give an excuse and say i’ll be better now, but there really isn’t one and in all honesty, i probably won’t!  i guess i’ve just been busy living life!  i’m definitely scrapping a bit less these days, but, not to fear, i’m still at it!  here are a few random pages i’ve done in the past few months:

sneak peek

hello all!  sorry for the unexpected blogging break.  things got crazy and blogging fel by the wayside.  here’s a quick sneak peek at what WM[squared] has coming out tomorrow.  be sure to check out the shop tomorrow to grab it!

a few pages

these days it’s pretty rare for me to spend much time looking around at shops other than SM, but i still get emails from many.  peppermint creative has always had great kits, but they released one last week that really caught my eye called “Miso Funky.”  it was on sale and i just couldn’t resist and boy am i glad i didn’t!  i downloaded it a couple of days ago and have already used it for 3 pages.

here are a couple of previews of the kit, as well as the pages i’ve done with them (i’ve mixed in a few things from other kits, so be sure to click the links below the images for credits):




Back to School

I’m so excited to reveal this kit to you all!  Like I said yesterday, it’s just fabulous!!  Here is WM[squared] Design’s *NEW* kit, “Back to School.”

Isn’t it just gorgeous?!?

She also made a super cute stamp kit to go along with it:

And, for this week only, you can grab them both together, for a discounted price!

As if that weren’t enough, Wendy also has a great Add-on freebie (which is quite large in my opinion!) on her blog, so be sure to check that out too!

And finally, here’s what I put together with this beauty:

Enjoy and happy scrapping!
