Two New Kits from Kathy Winters + FREEBIES!!

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:

Here are a couple of layouts I did using this kit – and keep reading for that FREEBIE!  😉

Okay, next up is Kathy’s newest kit, My Lemonade Stand!  This kit is A-DOR-A-BLE!!!  It seriously made me want to stage a lemonade stand with my kids just to have that perfect picture to scrap! lol  To be honest, I may just do that still!  😛  The patterned papers in this kit are to die for!!  I absolutely love stacking & layering different patterns together and Kathy’s kits are perfect for that!  Add in the completely adorable elements she’s included and this is a must have summer kit!!   This kit was just released yesterday, so you can snag it up while it’s still on it’s introductory 25% off!  Take a look:

And here’s a layout I whipped up with this kit, also using Kathy’s Template provided for the June Cookie Cutter Challenge over at GingerScraps

And now, I bet your wanting those freebies I was telling you all about! 😉  There’s a bunch of them, so get ready! First up is the exclusive Facebook Fan Freebie on Kathy Winters Designs Fanpage!  It’s a beautiful addon mini to the Memories Made Collab!  Just head on over to Kathy’s Page, “Like” her and snag this beautiful freebie!  And don’t forget to say thank you, it’s the polite thing to do! 😉

Next is another beautiful coordinating Addon to Memories Made, this time on Ellie’s blog.  Remember, mind your manners and say thank you! 🙂

New CT and a FREEBIE!!

Hi all!  I am just so excited to share my news with you all!  I was accepted onto a new Creative Team for Kathy Winters Designs! Yahooo! (you can check out her BLOG here)  I’ve been a fan of Kathy’s wordart for awhile now, and her kits are just so cute and fun!  She sells her products at Enchanted Studio Scraps, Scrappity-Doo-Dah & Ginger Scraps!  Unfortunately, with the issues with the webhost going on, ESS & SDD are not open right now, but they are expecting a resolution very soon, so stay tuned for more information on that!

I’ve already made my first CT layout for her with her new mini kit, Whispers of Romance, which is available right now at her Ginger Scraps store (which is still open for business!)  And, I have her permission to share the Quick Page I created using this kit!  Yay! Thanks Kathy!  🙂

First, let’s take a peek at this adorable little mini, I just love the patterned papers in this kit!
