Tea is Always a Good Idea

Do you drink tea?  I love my coffee but tea is always a good idea!

Many times at the end of a long hard day my husband will often turn to me and ask me if I’d like a cup of tea.  So many times it has been just the thing I need at the end of a long hard day.  It makes me think of this quote that I found and put into this kit: “When your day seems topsy turvy and as stormy as can be, there’s nothing quite as tranquil as a nice hot cup of tea.”

And so I give you my latest collection...Enjoy!!!

A Rainbow of Possibilities

Four times a year The Studio comes together to bring you a Coordinated Collection of products.  We are given a color palette and each designer creates products for this Coordinated Collection.  The last one was Winter's Frost.  The latest one which has hit the store is Rainbow Bright.  I admit the colors on this one were not ones I would have naturally picked out for myself.  But once I got going on this project it became a lot of fun for me and hard to stop creating!  You can find these products in my shop now and are on sale for....drum roll please...only $1 each!!!  Yes, you read that correctly!  This is a special promotion that the Coordinated Collection is when it is first released so get it now while it is at this super low price!

You’ve got me In Stitches No5

Last night my family and I went to see Riverdance.  I did not think I would get another chance to see this in my lifetime but they've brought it back and so when I heard it was coming to Denver I got tickets.  The last time we saw it was 5 years ago in Cheyenne, Wyoming.  We were sitting in the balcony and Ava was fooling around (big surprise) and kicked her shoe over the balcony onto the people below us.  I was so mad!  She was laughing...and so were the people behind us.  I MADE her go and retrieve the shoe by herself.  I think she dragged her sister along for "comfort".  She was 9 at the time.  Oh the things we remember!  This time around both girls were able to sit thru the entire show without me having to get after them (too much) and both said they had a good time afterward.  Funny what a few years will do.

This week I've got a few new products for you in my shop.  My every favorite "in stitches" series has another addition...In Stitches No5 is new and will be 20% off until Saturday March 19, 2016.

The latest products :: Templates & Bricolage 104!!!

I've been so busy I've forgotten to post about all the new products I've put up in my Studio shop recently!  Let me show you!!!

Are you a template lover?  Even though I art journal, YES, I am a template lover!  I have so many pictures of my family and family events that I need to scrap...if I didn't use templates I would NEVER get any of my photos scrapped!

I've added another template set to My Favorite & My Best {Story} series...this is #7 in a series.  I LOVE these templates.  They are so creative, fun and easy.  They are good for both creative people who want to add a ton more to their layouts but also good for those who just want to plug in their photos and be done.  I've used these templates both ways and I have to say they look great both ways!

Here's how I used them...

Also new I have another Bricolage collection that I've added to my Studio shop today.  Here's a refresher on what the Bricolage is:  construction or creation from a diverse range of available things that happen to be on hand, something constructed or created from a diverse range of available things.  I like to just pull in random items that don’t seem to relate to each other and create a kit based on these ideas.

Valentine Treat :: Amore!

My new release for this week is a Valentine inspired kit full of great reds, pinks and golds!  It's just perfect for scrapping about your loved one, or art journal pages and anything in between!

You will notice a slight increase in my prices on some of my products.  I have not raised my prices in over 2 1/2 years.  I felt with all the effort I put into these works of art it was time.  The kits will have the biggest price increase but I will also be putting a little bit more into them as far as number of papers and elements.  You will also notice that I am going to give a bigger discount on bundles...40%!!

The individual pieces of this kit will be on sale at 20% off until February 15th.  Enjoy!

ARTAND Montage :: 3.5.15

I have been sick.  It has been two weeks and I'm still not quite recovered yet.  Whatever this flu/super bug is...I wish it would leave and never return.  E V E R.  The first week I was flat out on the couch doing nothing but binge watching tv.  Which did have it's benefits I suppose.  I was able to watch the entire series of Bosch on Amazon Prime.  Great show.

Somehow I was able to get back to my desk this week and put together a new collection for you.  It is called Montage. I hope you love it as much as I did putting it together!

Montage: : a work of art that is made up of several different kinds of things (such as strips of newspaper, pictures, or pieces of wood)
: a mixture of different things
: a composite picture made by combining several separate pictures
