IT’S HEEEERE!!! DSD 2016!!!



Okay, I have SO much to share with you! Besides a crazy storewide sale of 30% off, I have a collab with an amazing designer, a FWP, a Pick a Prize chance x2, several bundles, and new products, too! Wowza. 


Let’s kick this off with the collab….


I was so excited to get to work with LBW again! She is spectacularly talented. This peppy planner collection includes 2 full print ready sticker sheets with cut files (with different box sizes!), 5 tabbed dividers (that are awesome!), grocery list insert, weekly list insert, month on 2 page inserts, and week on 2 page inserts…. all for FOUR popular planner sizes with a focus on versatile, everyday life planning! I love the mix of our styles and I know you won’t be disappointed. 

And I had so much fun with this that I kept going!

With a ton of alternate color ways included, this pack goes on

well past 24 hours. Includes a happy mix of 3×4 and 4×6 cards.

folder$2.56 $3.65 (save 30%)

The Another 24 Hours patterns & backgrounds are great for traditional
scrapbooking (both digi and hybrid) but I was also extra careful with pattern and
scale because I wanted these to also work effortlessly
as planner dividers, covers, etc. Includes 30 total papers!

So that covers the new goodies…. ready for DSD specific madness? Because I’ve got lots. Super Special Mini Bundles 1 through 3 are back on only $2 each throughout the DSD sale:

Wonderfully Warped had been removed from the For the Love of lineup some time ago and since then I’ve gotten random emails and messages asking why. So for those of you who missed it and those of you who never even met, I’ve brought it back with the brightest, wildest Warped pack ever…

FOLDERLayered Letters v.1

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




Super Duper Awesome

Hi! I am BEAT! A couple weeks into the year and I’m already bushed… you? I’ve got a couple little new releases for you…  Ready?

I love these. I can’t help it. Compiled from all sorts of journals and scraps, these 220+
scribbly brushes are a completely awesome mess. Arrows, lines, scribbles, messy,
handwritten words… lots of fun stuff to mess up your journaling!!

Every once in awhile someone asks for the next volume of the Big & Bold papers and I was
all too happy to oblige. I love these for the simple fact that absolutely love scrapping on a
massive patterned background and this deliver – all with a sweet color palette. Giant plaid,
giant damask, giant everything! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do already.

I’ve been doing this For the Love of thing since the day I debuted as a designer – with Artful Argyles the first! It’s morphed and grown and last year was the most fun I’ve ever had. I got rid of all my rules (papers had to be with papers, alphas with alphas, etc – and if it didn’t fit into a nice trio or holiday pack? It didn’t get to exist… I’m anal retentive that way) and decided that I could make whatever I wanted to make in the palette and bunch them together however I chose! I had so much fun and we ended up with a ridiculously massive For the Love of 2013 collection. So I thought to myself…. perhaps I could get all matchy matchy on the end of the year bundles. You know… for old times sake. :)
For the Love of 2013: All the Alphas For the Love of 2013: All the Cards For the Love of 2013: All the Kits

Yep! You can grab All the Alphas, All the Cards, All the Kits, All the Elements, All the Papers, or
EVERYTHING for one crazy price. They’re all bundled up nice and happy with a cool 40% discount.
Except the Everything bundle. That one is a whoppin’ 60% off the total. You save just a few bucks
shy of $100 buying that one. And it even includes this super paper pack that’s never been released!

Until now….
