April Blog Train: Spring Picnic

It's blog train time again! This month the STS Blog train has pulled out of the station sporting this beautiful color palette:

I love the fun spring colors and I have to tell you, the submissions this month are AWESOME! All of the designers have really out-done themselves. I think this is one of my favorite blog trains in a while.

My contribution this month is an alpha. This one is a full size alpha (uppercase, lowercase, numbers & punctuation). There are small flowers on the uppercase letters and numbers as well as a few symbols. So grab it for *FREE* while you can... after the 15th it heads to my store.

*Links now EXPIRED*
Go HERE to purchase this alpha.

Oh and don't forget about my CT CALL or my STS Intro FREEBIE and Sale.

My part is up a little early and everyone is on different time zones, so be patient if everyone's parts aren't up quite yet.
Here are the rest of the stops! Don't forget to leave your love as you go.

Keep Sticking Around....

Just a quick thanks to everyone for hanging with me this past month. "March Madness" has taken on a whole new meaning around here!

The beginning of this month marked the end of the fun (but challenging!) Designer Darling Contest over at Stuff to Scrap. Shortly after I was extended an offer to open my very first store and have had even more exciting challenges since as I further learn the ropes as a designer.

Two weeks later we were on a plane for a previously planned trip to Southern California. My husband's sister was married and we had a fun 10 days of visiting family, wedding decorating, swimming, and sunshine.

In the midst of all that we have also been in the process of buying our very first home! We are set to close this week and move shortly there-after. It's been an awful exciting, yet nerve-racking process!

So I apologize that quite a few of my posts this month have been brief ads or updates here and there. I'm hoping to get my feet under me soon and have more digi-goodness available! In fact, next week I will have TWO freebies to snag. Woohoo! So keep checking back, I promise not to be a crazy person forever. :)

Free "It's Potty Time!" QPs

One of the STS forum members made these darling layouts using my "It's Potty Time!" kit and "Template Pack 1". Aren't they cute!?

I love how she shows off the versatility of the kit! And remember both the kit and the template pack are available in my store.

She also turned each of these layouts into a QP for you to download. You can snag them in the "freebies" section of the STS forum or by clicking the preview images below.

Thanks Elena!
And remember Stuff to Scrap has a whole section dedicated to freebies from it's members and designers. Head over HERE to check it out in the forum. *You will need to register for a free account to view the forum.

"It's Potty Time!" Full Kit in my Store

I've just put up my first full kit in my new store. You may recognize it. ;) It was also my final round submission for the Designer Darling Contest. I've added a few extra elements and touched up a few others to get this kit ready for the store. There are 17 papers and 33 unique elements, as well as a handful boy/girl recolors (not all shown in preview).

Head on over to my store to check it out!

And check out this darling layout one of the STS forum members made using this kit. Ooohh, I just love it! Thanks Elena!

Go here to leave her some gallery love. :)

Introducing Template Pack 1

My very first product went in to the store this week! I'm so excited!

Templates are a lifesaver for me when I get into those scrapping funks. They are quick and easy to use, while still letting you make stylish and unique layouts. I *love* them! So for my first product I decided to put together a...
Template Pack 1
(Really unique name, I know. But at least you know what you're getting!)

This pack includes 4 (four) 12x12inch 300ppi layout templates. Three of these templates are re-vamped previous blog freebies and one is an entirely new template! Each template comes as a layered PSD and TIFF file with descriptive layers to help users identify element options. Individual PNG files of template layers are also included making these templates usable in a variety of scrapping programs. All files are PU/S4O/S4H friendly!

I have be itching to announce this all weekend...
I'm one of the new designers over at Stuff to Scrap!

Yay! A good handful of us from the Designer Darling Competition have been asked to join the Stuff to Scrap team and I couldn't be more THRILLED! I'm so excited to work with such a fun and talented group of ladies.

This also means I will be moving some of my freebies from my blog into my new Store. (eeek... I still get giddy just thinking about it!) I don't have a schedule yet... but at this point I have plans to move and improve most of them so catch them free here while you still can!

And stick around for other announcements and freebies in the future. Once I get my feet under me, I've got lots of fun plans. :)
