I’m not quite ready to say goodbye to summer - Hey, it's only August, it's been HOT here in Utah lately (like pushing 100F), the gardens are at their peak...it's STILL SUMMER! Why are we rushing things? I love fall, but I'm not ready for it yet!
I was working in my gardens the other day, feeling like I was in a bit of a creative slump...and then it happened. I was inspired by all of the flowers that were growing (among the weeds), and decided to do a kit that was all about flowers! “Bloom” is the result. My flowers don’t look exactly like the designs in this kit, but hey, I tried! I know that many designers are working on school & fall designs now, but I'm gonna enjoy the rest of summer and enjoy every last petal on my flowers (HOWEVER....I have an over abundance of zucchini, tomatoes, green beans and WEEDS, so if you'd like some, and you're in northern Utah...come on over!) If you're like me, and you're not ready for summer to be over, then take some time to enjoy this new kit! “Bloom” can be used for any theme you can think of, from gardening to goals, babies to birthdays and more!
As usual, I've bundled everything for this theme and have discounted it....and to top it off, I've also put all of my new "Bloom" Designs on sale for 25% until Aug. 30....so you actually save 36% on Bloom - The Bundle!
It will probably come as NO SURPRISE to you that I couldn't stop designing once I got started. So, I took some of the extra goodies and created a fab little Add-On Kit that's filled with great papers, elements & wordart designs!
Check out this set of alphas...I didn't do just one multi-colored alpha. I did this slightly wrinkled and tattered block alpha in SEVEN colors - yes, I have this thing about wanting the right letter in the right color. And, it never fails, if I just do a mixed colored alpha, I never have the right combo. That won't be an issue with this set *snicker* I think I may need a support group for alphas or something....just sayin'. Who's with me? Anyway, this set coordinates perfectly with the "Bloom" designs and so much more...it will become your "go to" alpha before you know it.
We want our kids to “bloom” as the new school year starts, we want to “bloom” in our homes & careers. I watch as my grandkids grow, and bloom into beautiful little people....“Blooming” can mean so many things....so I tried to do some titles that could be used in several ways. Use your imagination and see what “Blooms” on your digi projects, and then share your projects in The Ettes Gallery at PBP!
I decided to try the Short Stacks again for this theme....so much fun to use. If I didn't convince you with the last set, believe me with this one...they're EASY to use - just ask lbrtychic from my CT...she used one, created a darling layout, and it took her about five minutes. If you like speedy, creative layouts, that allow you to kinda do your own thing, then try these out!
So...just a reminder - all "Bloom" Designs are discounted 25% through Aug. 30...don't delay!
I can't even put into words how much I love the ladies on my CT - they're amazingly talented, sooooo much fun to work with, and so willing to work with my totally unreasonable deadlines. I love it even more that they're spread all over the world! I gave them 24 hours to work with this kit (I know, someone should schmack me!)...here are just a few of the GORGEOUS projects they created with my "Bloom" Designs:

If you've made it this far, you deserve a reward...and here it is. Enjoy this free Frame Cluster that I designed using my "Bloom" Designs. Simply put it on a background paper, add your photo, title, additional embellishments if you'd like...and you'll have a completed layout in minutes!
