I love the holidays. The touches of tradition make it even more special. One of those traditions was cross stitched stockings and that memory was the inspiration behind my latest release, Nordic Overlays and Stitching Styles. With these tools you can turn any photo or paper into a custom cross stitch or knitted masterpiece. I did a quick video tutorial to help you with customization and there is a pdf download too.
My 50% off sale will run through 31, January but this weekend you can shop and save 50% on Papers, Overlays and Textures from most designers at the Studio. There are some gorgeous things in these categories.
Of course, you still have time to Round Robin with Sea Cruise, my collaboration with Jilbert’s Bits of Bytes. The deadline for submissions is Tuesday. That’s plenty of time. Or maybe not. This weekend we celebrate my mom’s birthday. We have company and a party scheduled and I most certainly won’t be doing any scrapping but I am going to make a bit of time to shop so when the dust settles, I’ll have some new things to play with.
I did take some time out to make a cool photo frame cluster to coordinate with Sea Cruise. It’s down below some of these older products that you may have missed.
This is a great way to build your stash for some power scrapping.
I hope you’ll join us in the Round Robin Forum and don’t forget to post your links for an additional 10%, 20%, 30% or 40% off on next weeks new release.
I hope you have a great weekend. Here is my parting gift as I rush to finish food and decorations.
whew – some of you have been waiting for this… and here they finally are: The Daisy Flower Fairies! I know, I know – I’m lagging behind, lol, but I’m working on it and the other missing months will follow. In the meantime take a look at the daisies, I hope they will make you smile.
Oh, and I added some great basics – there’s a PU/cutting file version, as well as a CU version of these available.
These are soooo versatile, but I have to admit that the washi tape templates are my absolute favorites. It’s so quick and easy to create the perfect piece of tape for every layout or kit you’re working on. If you want to test them – there’s a free sample on the Studio Blog. (While you’re there, take a look at my other Cameo posts/tutorials, there’s always a freebie to go with them.
There’s a lot I want to tell you about, but since I guess you’re ready to do your shopping I’ll limit myself to the most important things for today, and save the chatting for another time, lol.
The Studio is having a 50 % off sale (not a big surprise, lol) – but: I’m topping this with a “Bundlemania”: All my bundles are 70 % off for NSD (sorry, collabs are excluded)! Believe me, there are some incredible deals in my store now, lol.
New in my PU store is an awesome collab with Danielle (aka The Urban Fairy) and for today, it is 50 % off instead of the 30 % mentioned in the ad ;D
Danielle and I are featured designers at the Studio until May 15th, check out our challenge in the forum, there’s also a code so you can pick up this beautiful add-on for free (and if you post a layout with it you can win even more goodies!):
I’m yearning for Spring! After a very dreary Winter I loved working on this set of CU Sprinng ribbons – just looking at the colors makes me feel happy :D. These are great not only for using them in your kits, but also on your layouts. Pick them up for 50 % off while my CU store is still on sale (until Monday) – or get them all and save 60 %!:
I have a coordinating fan freebie new on my FB fan page – don’t forget to pick it up 😉
Also we’re having a President’s Day Progressive Sale at the Studio – PU and CU:
Are you signed up for my newsletter yet? Next week I will send out the first one, with a cute freebie 😉 … (you can sign up by following the link or in the upper right corner of my blog, and don’t forget to pick up your sign-up alpha gift)
There are 3 things I want to tell you about today:
1. I finally got around to put a sign-up for my brand-new newsletter up on my blog. It is up there, in the right hand corner – do you see it?
I do not plan to send out weekly newsletters, unfortunately I don’t have enough time to do so. But once, maybe twice a month I’d like to send out the latest news about my designs. So if you’d like to be informed about new releases, sales and some special newsletter exclusive goodies, why don’t you sign up right away… and grab that sign-up goodie 😉 … here’s a peek:

2. Eva aka eqrAveziur and I have teamed up again to bring you another awesome CU Grabbag: 6 full size CU products for 6 $ – that’s a great deal, even if you’re not a designer and want to use them for your layouts! It will be available unitl Feb 15th at theStudio’s CU store:
3. Even so it might be a little bit late for a January kit ;)… my “Snowdrop Fairy” collection is in my store now.
Snowdrops are among my favorite flowers – the first sign that Spring will be coming. So small and delicate and yet robust enough to endure snow and ice. Every year I can’t wait to see the first snowdrops in my garden – and since the snowdrop is the flower of the month for January I decided to shorten my wait by dedicating a kit to them.
This kit (with all it’s add-ons) is the first in a monthly series featuring the flowers of the month.
Today and tomorrow only, the bundle and the kit will be DOTD at theStudio: That means you can pick them up for 70 % off!!
Thank you for reading this long post, lol – here’s a little wordart freebie for you… Enjoy! 😀
