Faithbooking Faithfulness…it’s all NEW!!

This week's new release is another wonderful installment of the Faithbook Series Fruits of the Spirit.  This month's highlight is Faithfulness.

Faithbooking Faithfulness focuses on the Fruits of the Spirit “faithfulness” with soft greens, blues and purples.  This kit is designed to follow along with the Faithbook Scrapbooking June prompt for our Slack group.  Great for scrapping your art journaling faith based pages within that group or for your own use.  There are enough elements in this kit for those of you who are not of a religious background.

Did you know that I have my own shop right here on my blog?  You don't even have to leave this site to grab these wonderful new products!!  (While not all of my products are there I am working on adding them all.  Check back frequently!)

So you have two great places to shop my products.  Here on my site and also at The Studio!

You can find these new products in both places at 20% off.  Purchase the Bundle and save 40% off!!

Have a wonderful weekend and for my American friends, Happy Independence Day!!



Open for Goodness

Ah, June.  I'm working with my office window open.  For now.  Until the summer heat gets too much and I have to run the AC.  I love this time of year.  Sunny and 75-80 degrees is my kind of weather.  It's good for my soul.

Speaking of good...this week's new release is another installment of the Faithbooking series.  This set focuses on Goodness.  I am getting used to a different work schedule since the girls have been out of school.  Getting a complete collection done proved problematic this week.  I hope things become easier in the weeks to come as I balance work and family time.  Fortunately my girls still want to hang with me even tho they are teenagers!!
You can find my latest release in my shop and at 20% off!!

It’s my birthday…and a few other things

I was chatting with Danielle of the Urban Fairy the other day and while talking we were excited to discover that we share the same birthday!  Woohoo!  There was no way were going to let something like that pass us by so we decided to pair up and give you this wonderful collab in celebration of our special day!  So I (we) give you Memories.  Here's the main inspiration behind it:

“Songs and smells will bring you back to a moment in time more than anything else. It's amazing how much can be conjured with a few notes of a song or a solitary whiff of a room. A song you didn't even pay attention to at the time, a place that you didn't even know had a particular smell.”― Emily Giffin








Here's some wonderful CT inspiration for you...

Today I have the DOTD (Deal of the Day) at The Studio.  This Deal is 70% and is an old favorite.  If you never got this kit now would be a great time!!!


In addition to this deal I also have a WONDERFUL freebie to go along with it.  Enjoy!!


Lastly I want to share with you that the forum and gallery at The Studio are finally up and running!  YES!  And I have a wonderful challenge series going on over there that I would love for you to join me in!  It's called the Bricolage Society and I know you are going to love it as much as I do and the people who have already discovered it!  Here's just a preview of what it looks like and please stop by the forum for the FREEBIE that goes along with it and for the rest of the challenge rules!  I'd LOVE to see you there!!


I hope you have a great weekend!!
