*NEW* Chalk It Up Collab! FREEBIES!

Oh, my poor, poor neglected blog.  *sigh*  I’m so sorry! 😦  I have let you down, buddy!  And I can’t even promise that I won’t do it again.  I know, it’s a terrible relationship!  But it is what it is, I suppose.  Life just gets in the way of all the fun sometimes!  BUT!  I have a “chalk-load” of FUN (pun is very much intended! :p ) to show you today!!

I had the pleasure of teaming up with Karen, Snickerdoodle Designs, yet again for a super funtastic collab kit!  I even dug out my Bamboo tablet, cleaned the two years worth of dust off of it, and doodled you all some cute little characters!  Why, yes! They do look like a 5 year old drew them, that’s how I roll… er… draw! 😀  It was perfect for the theme of the kit, which is cute kid sidewalk chalk doodles, so I just went with it!  Now you know the limits of my artistic talent! LOL!  But, really, this kit is just so much fun!

Hi all!!  I’m so excited to show off my brand new Collab Kit with Snickerdoodle Designs!!  When Karen approached me with this idea, I jumped at the chance!  First, because Karen is such an awesome Designer, second because I have SO many “Busted!” photos that are just perfect to scrap with this kit!  Like the time I found my daughter, then 2 years old, smearing vaseline all over the bathroom walls!  Or the time I found my son, at 4, stuffing toilet paper down the bathroom sink drain! Or that time…. OY! I could go on and on!! lol  I’m sure you know exactly what I mean, and have the pictures to prove it!! 😉  Let me introduce Busted, the go-to kit for all those “crime scene” photos!!

Happy Saturday everyone!!  Not a lot of blabber from me today, I have some game shopping to contend with in just a bit!  My son is just itching to spend that kindergarten graduation $$$ he got!!  😀  Then, it’s the girl’s turn!  She was invited to a Princess Tea Party, so of course we have to go out and get a new Princess dress & tiara for her to wear to the party!  Of course!  I mean, how dare I think that she can wear one of the hundred she already has in her closet, those are OLD, Mom!!  Yeah….  she’s 5…….  kill me now!!!

I’m really here to tell you all about some absolutely FABULOUS kits I’ve had the pleasure of working with recently, kits you guys really NEED to check out, seriously!!  If you guys don’t know, I’m on Kathy Winters Designs CT and I love it!   Kathy’s designs are beautiful and so much fun to scrap with!  She has a real eye for color and knowing exactly what you need to make that layout shine!  Her kits are very versatile, crammed full of goodies, and the pieces just seem to fall in place so effortlessly!  The first kit I want to tell you about is actually a collab that Kathy did with another very talented designer, Ellie Lash.  Memories Made is one of those classic kits, you know?  That kit that you seem to just go to over and over again just because it’s so beautiful and perfect and you can’t quite seem to get enough of it!  Add in the Memories Made Word Bits & Stacked Papers and, well, I’ll be scrapping for years with this!!  All Kathy’s products are exclusive to GingerScraps.  Take a look:

On My Knees Wordart Freebie!

Happy Hump Day!! How’s you’re week going? Mine? It’s an “Eh” kind of week. I got jipped out of my Mother’s Day by a now 5 year old little girls Birthday Party, spent the entire day cleaning & preparing for said party, only to have to clean again when it was over! *sigh* Oh well, the price I pay for having a child the first week of May I suppose! LOL! So, I’m hoping to ship the kids away this weekend so I can enjoy a day of rest & peace and quiet! Anyone want a 5 & 6 year old for the weekend?!?! They come with free candy!! 😀 Seriously, though… this will only be the 2nd time since last October that I’m sending them away! I need a break sooooo bad!!! hahahaha……. Anyway, let’s get on with why I’m here before I bore you all with my blabbering 🙂

I wanted to show off one of my New favorite Collab Kits! It’s called On My Knees and was created with Faithbooking in mind by the creative talents of Darlene Haughin Designs & Susan Godfrey Designs available exclusively at theStudio. I love the idea of Faithbooking, the idea to capture your Faith in a book to share with others. Of course, I immediately thought of my children and how this could benefit them. So, I decided to start making some Scripture Cards in 4X6 size, easy to print out and slip inside a photo album for the perfect reminder of our Faith! And this kit was that perfect finishing touch to these pages, it’s just so beautiful!


You can get this kit for 25% off right now, which brings it to only $4.50 for 20 blended/patterned papers, 12 cardstock papers, 2 full alphas, and 64 elements!  And, if Faithbooking isn’t your style, this kit can be used for so many other occasions and especially for those everyday moments!  Here’s a peek at two of the Scripture Cards I created using this kit, which will lead me to your goodie for today!  😀


I used bits and pieces of the kit to do the Wordart for these cards and I love the way they turned out!  So, I asked if I could share with all of you and was given the go ahead! YAY!  Enjoy your wordart freebie for today!  Thank you Darlene & Susan!!  🙂
