Summer Splash

 Summer Splash is the coordinated collection at The Studio for the month of July 2017.  My inspiration and direction took me to a garden theme with lots of flowers, most hand-made, along with other summery garden things, patterns, grunge, mixed media and artsy designs perfect for both traditional scrapbooking and art journal.

Come enjoy this new collection at it's fabulous introductory price of only $1 each!!!

All New :: Becoming & RETIRING Products

Some friends and I were discussing the other day that May is so busy we think it is right up there with, if not busier than December and Christmas.  I don't know about you and your life but May is insanely busy for me as well, with work, with family, with life.  There just seems to be so much going on!  My eldest has her birthday this month, she got her drivers' license, my youngest graduates 8th grade, there's {i}NSD, graduation parties, end of school year things, etc.  I am hoping that once Memorial Day Weekend hits I can just find a relaxing chair somewhere.

Becoming :: Collection

A wonderful kit inspired by the theme of beginnings featuring ranunculus flowers, grungy art, dandelion fuzzy seeds, and other whimsical art for both traditional scrapbooking and art journal.  This collection is in my shop and on sale for 30% off!

Save even more (40%) when you purchase the Bundle!!

Welcome to the Studio’s Annual Christmas Carol Blog Hop. Every year the Studio Designers gather together to “Sing Christmas Carols” to all of our members, customers, fans & friends. It’s a way for us all to say Merry Christmas and a big Thank You for being so supportive of us.

Each participating Designer has chosen a special Christmas Carol just for you and designed a cute mini freebie around it. So put on your dancing shoes & singing voices and come caroling with us.


Here's my mini. Just click on the preview or ***here*** to download it.
