And we’re back

And we’re back with another Daily Deal for you. Today it’s a Personal Use product — Hot Pockets 2. The response to these has been amazing and I actually have folks asking for more. They definitely are addictive and SO easy to use … and now they’re cheap … only $1 for one day only … and only in my store.


Here’s a great example of how great these are. I have a ton of photos from our remodel this summer. They’re not pretty, but I wanted to capture the moment … and I think I did.


I won’t bore you with all of them, but seeing what we went thru makes me appreciate the beautiful bathroom I got.

That’s it for today … HUGS!!!

Monday’s Daily Deal

Posted by on Nov 9, 2015 in Sales, Scrapbooking | 0 comments

It’s Monday and I have a new Daily Deal for you. This time it’s a commercial use product … my Stripped Frame templates. They’re actually a very simple 2 layer template, but by making them this way, you can easy recolor them to suit your taste.

These are great even for you personal scrapbooking needs. For example, check out this cute page by Pam; she used both the striped frames and the striped doodles.


That’s it for today … but don’t forget to check back tomorrow for the next Daily Deal.

I’m back … but it’s a quick post. I want to show you what today’s daily special is. As I mentioned, I having a different special each day during the Grand Opening Sale of my new personal store. I’m also alternating between a commercial use product and a personal use product. Today it’s a personal use product. It’s one of the packs from my Under the Sea Collection — Collage Bits. It’s a collection of cards with photos of vintage bathing beauties. For today only, you can get this for $1 … just click on the preview to go to the product page.

I have a little inside info about this product — this is my mom and her best friend. My mom is the one on the left. While she can no longer confirm this for me, I suspect this was taken while she was a teen living in Cave Junction, Oregon, and I’m sure it would have been her favorite swimming hole along the Illinois River.


That’s all for today … but I have more, so be sure to check back tomorrow … HUGS!!!

Flash Sales at theStudio

NOTE: Seems we’re having server problems. Hopefully, it’s because so many people are trying to shop? We’ve just been told that this sale will be extended through tomorrow.

I’m back … and I’m going to show you what’s up with the Flash Sales at theStudio. Typically, these have been time limited … but doing that was so time consuming, that it was decided that it would last all day (Saturday). So … you’ll find LOTS of products on sale for just $1. Here’s what I have in the sale …

DSD 2015 CU Grab Bags

Posted by on Nov 6, 2015 in Commercial Use, Sales, Scrapbooking | 0 comments

My DSD 2015 CU Grab Bags are now available and I can’t want to show them to you. I love grab bags myself … how else could you get so much CU stuff for such a low price. Each of these grab bags are $6.00 and they will be available in both of my stores thru November 15th. If you want to see what’s in each of these, just click on the previews below.

This first one is a Mixed Media Grab Gab that I did with Mariella (Laitha’s Designs). We started chatting a couple of months ago about doing one of these and finally got together to actually do it for DSD.


This next one is a Vintage Grab Bag that I did with my buddy Manu (Manu Scraps). I think it’s time she and I do a follow-up to our Uncle Giovanni Collection.


Last, but not least, is the Whole Lotta of Blooms Grab Bag that I did with Esther (Zesty Designs). I adore her flowers and since she lives down under she always has gorgeous blooms when everything is basically dying or already dead here (even without a drought).


That’s all for today … but there will definitely be more to show you tomorrow.

It’s Alive

Posted by on Nov 4, 2015 in Blog, Scrapbooking | 0 comments

It’s been a very quiet AND intense month for me. Actually, quiet when it comes to my blathering because it’s been rather intense for me … but have a VERY good excuse. Take a look at my top menu bar … notice something different? How about that word “SHOP”? Even better … check out the right column where I list my stores. Yep … I now have my very own personal store and it’s alive!


It’s nothing flashy and I planned it that way. I was looking for something that would be easy for you to navigate around and to find things. I also wanted it to have a quick response time whenever you clicked on something. One thing you will see from my preview above, is that I am or was having a Halloween sale. I had some people testing things out for me and wanted to entice them with an incentive. I also gave out a coupon to my newsletter subscribers so they could get even more off (hint, hint … better subscribe now). However, this sale ends tonight (November 4th) but I will have an even better one tomorrow for the start of DSD.

That’s all I’m going to tell you about now. Be sure to come back tomorrow to hear more and get a look at all my DSD specials.

BIG mini Sale

Posted by on Oct 17, 2015 in Personal Use, Sales, Scrapbooking | 0 comments

Last month I showed you Indian Summer mini kit that I made for theStudio’s Next Designer Contest (as a play along). If you missed downloading it, I’ve added it to my store. You can not only purchase it for 30% off, you can get all of my mini kits for 30% off. Guess you could call it a BIG mini Sale.
