NEW collab with Rachel Young!

Our family was bitten by the flu bug over the Christmas holidays, but there has to be some good that comes from mopping up puke and blowing stuffy noses... inspiration!!  So here it is, a kit to scrap your fevers and chills, your stomach flu and headaches... the unavoidable discomforts of being sick.   'Sickies' is a collaboration kit I created with Rachel Young.  There is also a set of matching journal cards, including a printable pdf.  Both are 20% off over this weekend.

TLP Birthday Bash!!

There is so much going on right now at the pad.....  You are NOT going to want to miss it!  We have tons of challenges, games and PRIZES, plus a 30% store wide sale!  I wanted to have a new kit ready for today, but life got in the way of that happening (sigh).  That's all part of me trying to be more balanced (my new word for 2013).  It will be ready for next week though.  In the meantime, I DID manage to make a set of 8,5x11 templates and template builder as requested by a few of you.  I hope you find them to your liking!  I had to reduce the blocks to 70% of their original size to make them fit.  That gave me room for another row of blocks and a footer area.  So actually, you are getting more options with this format!  ;)  The element packs still work with the 8,5x11 templates, but they need to be reduced to 70% of their original size as well.  Oh, and I made a new DYY element pack - some chalked Notes... and a pack of Woody Feathers that include a PDF printable version for your hybrid projects!  Have a great weekend!

SOSN (Something Old Something New) at the Pad

Something OLD
This has to be one of my FAVORITE kits!  I love the muted tones and calming theme.  Maybe it's because my life is too hectic and I need to find a quiet spot in my mind!  lol!  So I am pleased to offer it to you today at 50% off!!  You will find the full kit 'Mellow' and the 'Mellow Photo Overlays' at

Oh!  And I almost forgot... I have this FREE SAMPLE of the Mellow kit available in my shop as well!


Something NEW

My kids say the funniest things!  I've gotten into the habit of writing these down on FB, much to the delight or exasperation of my FB friends... lol!  So I thought it would be a good idea to make these quote cards to scrap some of the best quotes of 2012!  If you use these on a layout with some funny kid quotes, I'd LOVE to see it!!  Hook me up in the comments so I can go take a look!  :)

Document Your Year collection!

Have you tried and failed to document your year with a system that requires daily or weekly maintenance?  Have you felt guilty about falling behind or missing a day?  Shouldn't your documenting system follow your pace rather than you trying to keep up with others?  That's how I felt, so I put together a tool that you can use to build your own templates to meet your scrapping needs.  

This is NOT a set of ready-made templates, though I did make some,  for those of you who are not quite ready to work outside your comfort zone.  What THIS is, is a very large psd file with coloured blocks that you can turn on and off according to the number of photos you want, their size, and their positions.  Introducing the Template Builder.  Click the image below to view or download a video tutorial my dh so kindly put together for me.  We had some trouble with a cut-off at the beginning and the end, so we are working to get that fixed, but for now at least you can see how to use these!  :)

And here's a closer view of the product.  It comes with a template block guide to help you identify which blocks you want to turn on and off.  All of these blocks are included in the Template Builder, allowing for hundreds of possible combinations!!  

So... if you don't feel quite ready to try the Template Builder, or your software doesn't support psd files, I have also prepared a set of 25 ready-made templates that you can mix and match.  They range from 1 photo block to 16.  I've included psd files, tiff files and storyboards in png files.  But wait, there's more!!!  Scroll down!!!!!!

I've created CO-CORDINATING ELEMENT PACKS to match the template blocks!!!!  Yes!  That's right!!!  The elements are named according the block color they match so it's as easy as pie to fit them into your template!  Many more element packs are on the way.  This is just the beginning!!  

This collection is available at as of today, and it's 20% off for the weekend!

We are starting off the month with a re-release and a new element pack for the SOSN sale (Something Old Something New).  These are 50% off today only!  I would be so very thankful if you would help me spread to word to your scrapping friends so I can get some momentum going with this new venture.
