Playful Minis, etc

Holy Moly. I’m back! Sorry for my recent vanishing act – my not very old hard drive (internal) went boom. Bye photos and presets!!But here I am with a new PC looking toward the future. (ie: no more fetal position) I have much to tell you but lets start with the obvious, shall we?

Thru 7/27 you can stock up on all Winter, Christmas, and DYD goods for 30% off. Serious. Here of some of my favorites:

Holiday Hangover Get Happy: Bundle of ExtrasGet Happy: Pockets!! Joyeux: Bundle UpWonder: Patterns & Backgrounds Let it Snow
There are so many things on sale I could go on forever. Who knew I had so many seasonal products? Anywho – great time to trim your wishlist and get ready for another holiday season.

Playful Stitches
The Playful Stitches include 99 total stitches – 9 different bits, each in 11 colors. WOW!  Just $2.40 this weekend – these were initially a freebie so scour your stashes!
Pop! Mini Kit
Another former freebie, this mini kit is full of bright papers and sweet elements. Originally this was an add-on for a kit set to release…. today. But I lost the whole thing. I never think to backup stuff in progress. :( Maybe some day I’ll start it over. Grab the mini for $2.40 right now.


Check out my huge huge news by clicking the above preview! Not only will you get to peak at what’s included in this collection… you’ll also get to find out how you can WIN it!  (Can you tell I’m excited?)

International Superstar.

It’s official. I’ve died and gone somewhere HAPPY! My kids are all tired of being forced to refer to me as Mom, The International Superstar and/or Scrap Superstar and/or The Legend.

I don’t think it’s too much to ask for. :D Today on the Gossamer Blue blog/instagram/FB they have announced the following…



For real! I am thrilled with the way it’s come together and Lori (Ms. Gossamer Blue herself) has been amazing (and patient) and I couldn’t wait to tell you! Here’s a sneak at the whole collection, releasing in September:


10 double-sided patterned papers that are bright and bold with touches of gold. (and PLAID!!)


A fantastic plaid puffy alphabet, gorgeous gold rubons, and adorable stickers!


A stamp set that is sure to please and enamel dots loaded with a ton of color (and glitter!!!!!!).


Coordinating wood veneer that makes me happy! I know I designed it but I am obsessed with the faire isle banner veneer. That was have been a particularly inspired day because that is cute. Can I say that?


The most amazing engraved wood veneer number set from 1-31. These babies are bold and so much fun at 1 3/4 inches in height. Seriously – If you know my work digitally you know that I tend towards gigantic and excessive. Now the paper world knows, too. SO EXCITING! These will make December Daily a breeze!


(7!) Adorable pockets that are perfect for slipping in tags or photographs. They fit
right inside pocket pages. Slip in a gift card and you have an amazing, happy little gift.

Want to win the collection? Leave a comment over on the Gossamer Blue Blog letting Lori know your favorite part of the collection. Want two more chances to win? Tag a friend on the Gossamer Blue Get Happy Instagram image and/or leave a comment on the Get Happy Facebook post. She’ll will announce the winner on Saturday. And if all of this wasn’t enough? Yesterday and the day before, Lori announced 2 other amazing collections releasing later this year – Gramercy Road created by the very talented One Little Bird (without whom I would be lost on a daily basis. No joke.) And On My Desk created by the amazing Paislee Press. I can’t believe I’m part of this trio in away way – I’m fortunate enough to get to share The Lilypad with both of these unstoppable designers so being connected to them apart from that is crazy. I can’t believe it.

I hope you love this collection as much as I do! xoxo
