Last Minute Gifts?

Do you have a few last minute gifts on your list? When I have some last minute gifts, a gift card goes a long way...and I made this gift card holder using Diamond Ink Design's Country Holiday. I originally made this to give a gift to a friend, but my printer was out of yellow ink, so, needless to say, it didn't turn out quite right, but I've received permission from Sarah (Diamond Ink Designs) to share this gift card holder with you all.

Instructions are included in the zip.

Black Friday...grab bag!!

I've never been a Black Friday shopper. Seriously, I can't even remember ever going out as a kid. As an adult, it didn't change much, however my husband and I have found that it's a great day to go grocery shopping. But I still get a thrill out of seeing the deals, even if I don't want to go after them. In fact, this year, I'm excited to know that I am done shopping except for a few extended family gifts, the dogs, and stockings. Not too shabby in my opinion.

So, in case you like the Black Friday deals too, here is a Black Friday grab bag. For only $5.

I don't have any examples, it's been a little busy around the house getting ready for T-day and all. But you don't want to miss it.

May There Always Be Sunshine

Here is the latest kit in my store. May There Always Be Sunshine. It is a charity collab kit for the daughter of a family friend. Kami is 2 years old and she has been diagnosed with a rare liver cancer. I think we all know how devastating it can be to get such a prognosis, but there's also financial issues to consider. I wanted to help them out by creating a charity collab kit, and I never imagined I would get so many to help me. You can learn more about Kami at

available here

This is a collab kit including contributions by
Bucket of Butterflies
Dana's Footprint Designs
DigiDesigned by Wilma
Feli Designs
Happy Scrap Girl
Honey Bee Digital
Key of D Designs
Sarah Barber Designs
Sya's Blueprints (retired)
Studio4 Designworks
Unforgettable Moments by Amy Peck

It is priced at only $5 and 100% of your purchase will help Kami and her family. So this holiday season, see if you can't give a little more...

DSD is coming

And DRS is deep in planning for this uber-important event.

First thing you should know is that I am a part of the scavenger hunt at DRS. I (will) have hidden a special mini-kit amongst my products in the store. You will get a clue (in the DRS forums) to help you find it. It's beautiful (if I do say so myself).

Also, we will be having a blog train that I'm a part of. That will start on the morning of the 6th (at least that's when my part will go up), oh and I live in Mountain Time, US.

Then, I'm also have a 40% off sale on my store for the duration of the festivities (the 6th-7th).

and, I have a new kit that should be showing up over the weekend...and I'm running a special promotion.
I hope you have an awesome DSD and will at least stop by and visit.

With beautiful heritage photos, the kit is also great for autumnal layouts.

Ooh la Lollipop

Introducing, Ooh La Lollipop...the perfect collab for all those sweet memories you want to capture. And don't forget, you get it for free with any other purchase in the store...(just sayin' you know...) I love how when these kits come together I sit there and stare at the previews, trying to figure out just what up there is mine, because I can't remember. But it all looks so awesome together!

and this is what I made with it...I TOTALLY am in love with it.

Frame Me With Flowers

So a while ago, I made a kit that had a flower frame in it. I loved it and the concept so much that I decided to expand it into an element pack. I wasn't quite ready to let go of summer, so I let autumn inspire the colors in this pack. This pack is perfect to go with all of your fall layouts, as they are in typical autumnal colors.
