Angie and Jackie's Brownie Scraps Stores CLOSING!!!

I have some sad, but exciting news for you all. I know I haven't posted for a LONG time, but thought this was worthy!

It's sad because 2 of my most favoritest designers are leaving Brownie Scraps.  Jacabean Designs and Down This Road Designs

But.. it means MAJOR sales for you.  I posted the ads below- so be sure to check out their awesome sales. 


Jackie is retiring from designing.  It does take a lot of time, and I am sure she has made the right decision- to spend more time IRL, with family and friends.  All of her kits are leaving digiland forever.

Angie is moving to Scrap Matters.  This is very exciting as there is a great community over there, and the products that she put out for Scrap Matters are just stunning.  Some products are retiring, and some will disappear for a while and be re-vamped for Scrap Matters.  

So check out the sales, and be sure to leave some love for them as they each close out a chapter and start another!!!

New Kit from Down This Road Designs?

Angie's got a great kit coming out today.  Would you guess a lot of the inspiration for this kit came from a photo of a bathroom?  Neat, huh?    Check out the kit!

New kit by Jacabean: Luxury

I'm a little behind in posting, sorry.  I have just started selling Norwex products, and am pretty busy with that right now.  Anyway...

Jackie has a wonderful new kit out called Luxury.  It's purple.  My favorite!  Check it out at Brownie Scraps.

Jackie also has some great beginner digiscrap tips on her blog.  She also has some great paper craft tutorials.  They look adorable.  My patience (and my ability to do these with a 2 year old) isn't that great, but I hope some one can take advantage of them.  Maybe post some pictures?

Here's the kit preview for Luxury:

And here's one of my Great Grandma.  Isn't she so cute?  I sure do miss her!  Stay tuned for Angie's new kit, I am featuring one of Great Grandma's recipes in my LO.

Exquisite Release- Jacabean Designs

Wow!  2 days in a row.  Good to be back in the swing of things.  Lots of releases happening, so have to get them all out here!

Today, Jackie is releasing her newest kit- Exquisite.  It is just that.  Take a look!

This is so beautiful!   The colors match my bridesmaid dress from my little sis's wedding so stay tuned for more LO's.  I can't find the photos right now... I actually don't think I took that many, so I will have to rely on hers.  Here's a LO of some frozen fog/frost roses, hoar frost-- whatever you want to call it.  

Tomorrow I am posting a QP for all my loyal blog followers.  Well-even if you don't follow my blog it will be available.  I'd really appreciate a follow though!  Or at least a comment to let me know you snagged it.  Here's a little peek.  See you then!

Catch up, yet again!

Here I am, trying to play catch up once again.  Life's been so crazy lately!  Mom's laid up with a busted elbow, she messed it up so bad that she had surgery and she's trying to recover from everything at once.  So I have been trying to help out, which means I've been away from home for the past 2 long weekends.

My CT designers have been working away, and there's a few new kits I want to show you.  The first was released last Tuesday and it's by Down This Road Designs. You can find it at Brownie Scraps.  It's a LDS kit for the "Young Women" Program.  I'm not LDS, and I don't know much at all about the program, but it looks like a wonderful way to bring young women up.  The kit is beautiful, chock full of inspiration, bright colors, and great elements.   If you are not LDS, don't worry- the kit has SOOO much in it, I really think it would work for any young girl.  It's called Precious Values.  Well, check it out yourself...

Here's a LO that I completed using the kit.

Be sure to stop by my blog again tomorrow and Thursday.  I have a surprise :)
