Hiya! Blog is all fixed! Yay!
This week has been crazy! And I have the collabs to prove it!
This long awaited collaboration with Studio Basic has all your dream journaling needs covered! Scrap your dreams and your memories and everything in between with tons of patterns, backgrounds, doodles, alphas, elements – even templates!
I also got to reunite with two pals from my CatScrap days!! Me & the ladies from yayeah came together to produce this grown kids kit! Scrap the journey of the graduate, etc, with these pretties!
And in case you missed the Journal Card addition to Talk to Me last Wednesday, here’s a coupon to grab them for half off thru the weekend: TalkCheaptoMe
Happy Friday! Man, what a week… First, thank you so much to all of you who entered the giveaway!! I’m so surprised and excited by the response. The first winner has been notified and I’m still waiting for her response before I move thru the list and announce them. Yay!
This week I’ve got a new pack in one of my favorite collections ever and it’s at………. One Story Down! You may remember that I had just started a guest spot a couple months ago at OSD literally the week the store crashed and vanished. Well, the new OSD ladies were kind enough to ask if I wanted to come try again so here we go…
Pack 4 in the Cliff Notes series, this week I have the Word to Your Mother Edition:
This pack is CRAMMED full of tongue in cheek word bits, phrases, clips and even a couple brushes devoted to Mom. More than 200! There’s something in there for everyone and I had lots of laughs with the kids going thru stacks of old ads, books, and even some old Mother’s Day cards I’ve had laying around for years, too! And it’s on sale this weekend for only $3.20
Also this weekend the Good Stuff add-on has come home to roost at TLP after partying it’s way thru The Daily Digi’s NSD email party…
This little page kit is perfectly coordinated with the rest of For the Love of 2013 and is the baby sister of the upcoming FULLLLL kit, Good Stuff. It’s got a sweet selection of papers and bits, brushes too! Snag it for 20% off this weekend if you didn’t score it over NSD weekend.
See you tomorrow <3 Al

Another week and more stuff!!! There are two new products in the store – both good, sturdy, versatile products that complement any and everything!
First up is my new favorite alpha!
I love writing on photos on a page and I love brush alphas just as much! And I’ve found over time that little alphas work the best because they’re the right size to stamp all over photos without losing their charm! This little scribbly, pen filled, stencil-ish alpha fits the bill. A to Z and numbers, too!
Also new this week…..
I save everything. E.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. I also don’t let anything hit my store until I truly believe it’s perfect and cohesive. Usually by the time it hits my store there’s been multiple versions of papers – solid and patterned – that have been removed from the folder for one reason or another. Sometimes it just doesn’t fit into my “vision” and sometimes I’ve totally changed the colors after all the papers are done. (There’s an entire previous version of Bloom on my harddrive in a different palette) It could be anything.
These cast offs go in a folder with a name I will not repeat. ;) I can’t bring myself to get rid of them because there’s nothing wrong with them…. so I’m splitting them into groups on 16 and offering them up. They’ve all been carefully examined and nothing made it in that wasn’t good enough. These aren’t bad papers in any way – just homeless. I made sure that it was a pretty good variety, lotsa colors/patterns/styles/etc. They don’t match and they’re a fab, easy way to stock up quickly.
And onto the winner of the For the Love of Journaling: Bundle #2 (or the equivalent) giveaway! I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed reading all of your thoughts on journaling. I’m glad I’m not the only one who struggles! And now the winner…..
30 July, 3:31 AM
Most of my pages aren’t usually text-heavy, but when I do journal, it’s for a subject close to my heart. :)
Congrats Ava!! I’ll try to get in touch, but contact me if you see this, okay!!
See you all soon with more goodies! Allison
