More than a Sneak Peek!

We have another great Dig-Ette-al kit that will be added to our shop in the next week or so. I just thought I'd give you a "preview" of the kit so that you can start organizing your beach photos. The CT has done some really amazing layouts with this set, so that will help get your creative juices flowing! I'll post here as soon as it is available in the shop!

Good Things Utah

We had a lot of fun on Good Things Utah today! The ladies are always so nice and Fayette and I have fun getting together since we don't get together as much anymore. You can watch the clip at

We had a lot of people who downloaded the free iron-on designs. We hope it inspired you to make some cute projects using iron-on transfers. Remember to share your projects with all of us in the gallery.

New FrEeBiES in the Shop!

Annette and I will be appearing on the local morning talk show, "Good Things Utah" tomorrow to promote our designs & website. We appear sometime between 10 and 11 a.m. local time. Anyway, we're showing how to use our designs for projects other than digi scrapping. We've prepared a couple of fun freebie downloads that we'll be offering to all viewers and to the studio audience. And, just because we're so nice and generous, we decided to let everyone here know about them too. So...go to the shop and check them out.

These are iron on designs, so when you open the file, they're BACKWARDS -- that's intentional. If you print them the right way, they iron on backwards. And yes, I'm speaking from experience here. I have an apron that was supposed to be darling, but instead, it looks exactly like this on the front. . .

Lol, YOU try pronouncing that :P And yes, I wore it on Sunday and took a bit of teasing about it :P So, just learn from my mistake :) Have fun with these designs..and thanks again to our CT Member MaryRuth for the cute onesies idea and Dorene for her cute "stacked fruit" idea! Thanks ladies!

Member Gallery Contest Winners!

I just have to say that a little "nagging" went a LONG way with our digi scrappers. The Member Gallery is SMOKIN' HOT! I'm loving what we're seeing...and we're still seeing uploads without having a current contest. It doesn't get better than that!

Speaking of contests...we need to tell you who the winners are in the Member Gallery Contest. Congrats to:

Please email me at and I'll get you the information on your $10 gift certificates to our shop!

We hope you'll continue to upload new layouts to the gallery. We LOOOOVE seeing what you do with our designs!

New "Click" Pages and a BiRtHDaY Sale!

Annette's Magical Memories Collection has been downloaded by a lot of you. Now she's adding to the "must have" Magical designs with her set of "Magical Memories Click Pages". Not only are these great for helping you remember your trips to "that amusement park"...they're just great for everyday photos. Click the image to check them sure to watch the slide show in the shop to see the detail in these designs!

Now, on to some really BIG NEWS! Annette will be celebrating her 39th birthday AGAIN on Saturday, May 16. We won't tell you how many times she's been 39, but I will tell you that she's been 39 one more time than I have :P *snicker*

To celebrate her birthday, we're going to have another "39 Again!" Sale. This time, everything in the shop is discounted 39% so you won't need to use a coupon code.

We'll be sending an email out about the sale tomorrow. We just thought we'd post it here with the new "Click" Pages so that you don't hurry and buy them...and then get upset when you find out you could have saved some cash on Saturday. See how thoughtful we are? *snicker*

We try :)

You still have time!

I guess my little "guilt trip" worked some magic because we've had lots of wonderful layouts uploaded to the Member Gallery lately. Thanks for showing us what you're doing with our designs...we love seeing your projects! Here are just a few of the layouts that you've shared:

You still have until tomorrow night at midnight (Utah time), to upload additional layouts to be entered in our Member Gallery contest (see May 3 blog post entitled "Thank You" for details). We love giving away prizes - it's our way of saying "thank you" for purchasing our designs! So, take the time to upload as many layouts as you can. The more entries there are, the more we can give away!

Still Scrapping? ...and another CT Freebie

Is anyone besides our CT still scrapping? (Btw, the CT Gallery is RoCkIN'!)

Our Member Gallery contest is still on (until May 15), but there haven't been any new uploads since NSD. I'm not nagging (ok, so I really am), but hey, we'd love to see what you're doing with our designs. We KNOW how many of you downloaded the MANY freebies that we gave away on NSD. So....get busy and get some layouts done and uploaded. We're offering prizes certificates to our shop! That means more free digi scrapping goodies! We're doing everything that we can, besides creating the layouts for you. Oh wait, we've even done that. We've created dozens of "Click" Pages and Templ-Ettes that you could "make your own" and upload. Hey, there really are just no good excuses here. (picture me standing here with my arms crossed, tapping my toes impatiently.) Do you feel sufficiently guilty yet? *smile*

On another note, one of our CT members, MonalisaSmiles, was on holiday during NSD. She has some adorable "post-NSD" FREEBIES that she's offering on her blog right now (see image below). Be sure to check them out! And hey, if you download them, add a photo and some journaling, and upload the layout to the gallery! (still nagging :)

We want to thank everyone who participated in our NSD activities. We had a lot of fun, and hope you did too! We hope you all enjoy the freebies and are enjoying the products you purchased or won! If you missed any of the freebies, head over to the shop right now. I'm going to leave them active until Monday morning (I'd take them down at midnight tonight, but hey...I'm going to go to bed EARLY -- hopefully :)

A BIG THANK YOU to our Creative Team members too. They all worked unbelievably hard to help us get sample layouts done for the new collections. And, while working on those layouts, we asked them to create freebies for NSD. Thanks for putting up with our "pace" :) We couldn't ask for a better team!

And...just a reminder that your chances to win are NOT over on:
