I’d be honored if as a Happy Birthday you’d pick up the font. xoxo

October BYOC and lots lots lots more!

It’s October. School has started. Know what that means? It means I’m sooooo sick. I’m sure I’m not alone, either. But somehow I managed to compile a very sweet and subtly spooky little collection. :)

Thirty One: Stars & Stars Thirty One: Elements

Thirty One: Patterns & Backgrounds

The 31 Collection includes three brand new packs that aren’t so spooky they can’t be used year round. I love Halloween. LOVE. And I love designing during Halloween. But I wanted to collection to be suitable for the whole year, too. Stars & Stars includes 28 stars – each comes scribbled and stitched. The Elements include a variety of dainty embellishments for prettying up your pages… and The Patterns & Backgrounds include 16 “core” papers and a selection of variations & different color ways. Yay team. Find the October 2013 BYOC collection here.

It’s Shanna’s turn at Polly Picks and you can find some of my products there on sale when you shop her lovely style.

Also make sure you stop by the current Trend Watch category!


And last but not least!

TLP-mobile-teaser Last week TLP went mobile and I’m so pleased with how well received the launch was! This week 6 more mobile ready pic fonts were released and they are SO amazing!! These are fantastic for using in Photoshop, too, but are designed and packaged specifically for downloading directly to your mobile devices for use in any photo app that utilizes custom fonts. Go check out brand new gorgeous fonts from Amy, Nisa, Mirjam, Peppermint, Heather, and Lili! All mobile ready fonts are 20% off right now.



Sugar, Sugar!

Azucar, Azucar – my nod to Día de Los Muertos – hits the store today especially for The Lilypad’s weekly “Something Old Something New” and you know what that means!  That means this huge brand new colorful kit is 50% today and ONLY today. The price will never be reduced that much again – not even during the upcoming DSD!

Azucar, Azucar


  • 17 solids
  • 12 patterned backs
  • 84 handdrawn & realistic elements
  • 24 doodles
  • and 1 alpha in eleven colors!!!

$3.50 today!!!!!  And man, let me tell you…. quite along time ago I came across these gorgeous vector sugar skulls during some huge bulk vector sale. I was all, NICE, that’d save time.  I’ve never used a single one of those vectors. LOL  They’re .eps files, first of all which generally means they’re filled – not stroked – which generally means you either use them as they’re drawn, being content to simply change colors, or you don’t use them at all.

So when I was asked to participate in a very exciting Dia de Los Muertos collab 3-way I was like “DING!” This won’t be too much extra difficult drawing because I have those wonderful sugar skull vectors and they’re perfect as is.


Nothin’ is ever that easy, is it? They’re badass designs, whoever did them, but I didn’t love the random non-uniform line thickness and some other stuff and as they’re not editable to that extent guess what I got to do anyways? I ended up still having to re-draw – from scratch – every bit of every doodled element. Just like always. I don’t know why I thought I could be satisfied to stick with someone elses vision this far in.

No biggie expect we had something like 3 days to complete the collab. Ha! Those that know me know that’s an unlikely outcome from me. I’m just too slow. So in the end the portion had to be rounded out into a full kit. And there you have it. Azucar, Azucar!

Little hint, though? Want a doubly awesome Day of the Dead kit – that coordinates?!?!?!?! Go see Jacque and Michelle’s GORGEOUS collab that shares a color palette!   Also? Newsletter subscribers are about to get a free kit. Ha!

Bite Me

Seriously. Really.  Do it.

At the very least look at my kit with my biggest design crush evah!!

Wapow! 20 papers, a ton of elements, alphas, strips…. it’s so good you’ll be content to stay human just awhile longer. ;)

For really reals, tho.  I have Val’s stuff back when she was Spotted Dog at Storytellers.  Some of the very first stuff I actually bought! And yes, I giggled like a school girl every time she emailed me with kit business.

Want a freebie?

Are you sure?

Also – I haven’t forgotten Montana’s feature. I had the brilliant idea that it would be completely awesome if I doodled in eyeliner for Bite Me and scan it.  And then left it on my scanner.  My scanner is now covered in eyeliner.  But I got a ridiculous new camera for my birthday last week (ack 32!) so her feature is coming THIS weekend.  (she won’t let me just not do it)  And I have it on good authority that she’s throwing together a freebie.  Yay

Love to you all – Allison

Storewide sale and the coolest grab bag E.V.E.R.

Don’t miss that!!!! Don’t forget there are new products at the end of my store from before I moved everything over!!

Now on to the coolest grab bag I’ve ever, ever made – part of it collaborating with my super artistic daughter Montana (who I’ll be featuring on my blog this weekend!)This Halloween-esque treat bag is filled with FIVE FULL SIZED PRODUCTS!!! The price for this as a grab bag is crazy and works out to $1 per product! Eventually it’ll be broken up but for now it’s all together and dirt cheap.

Want to know what’s in it??

  • Hot Scary Mess – a scarier version of the popular Hot Mess collection including 8 super hot, super scary, and super messy papers (reg. $3.00)
  • Goth Girls – I asked my own resident goth girl to dummy down her amazing artwork and give me a scribbly half hazard set of spooky illustrations and she delivered. Includes a variety of brushes/stamps and paper elements, some with colored versions, too! (reg. $3.75)
  • Goth Girls: the Papers – Possibly my favorite paper pack ever, these old stained papers are adorned by some of the above illustrations and include 8 seriously unique background papers (reg. $3.00)

Stay tuned for a feature with the kid this weekend and next week for another very vampy collab!!  Enjoy the storewide sale!!  Allison
