It’s time for theStudio’s 2012 Christmas Carol Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to theStudio’s annual Christmas Carol Blog Hop.

As every year, we all chose a Christmas Carol to create a freebie around it – my choice for this year was “Up on the Rooftop” – and because I had so much fun creating it, it turned out to be a rather full sized kit, not a mini: 32 elements, 8 patterned papers, 1 alpha (upper and lower case), 10 solid cardstock and 10 folded crafts.
Instead of splitting it up and putting part of it in the store I decided to give it to you completeley free during the blog hop as my Christmas present and thank you for all the love and support you’ve shown me in the past year! 😀

I’m sorry, this link has expired, but you can find the kit in my store.

I would LOVE to see what you create with this kit!

Last Minute Advent Calendar? Here’s a free template for you.

Hi all,

I’m very sorry for having been “off-blog” for quite some time and hope you’ll like that I’m back with a freebie for you.

Tomorrow is Dec 1st – Time to open the first window of your Advent Calendar to start the countdown to Christmas! (pst, we will have one at theStudio again, too, so don’t forget to pick up your daily goodie there :D…)

I just finished getting the calendars for my family ready, I’m a last minute girl sometimes – and if you’re like me, you might appreciate the Hybrid Advent Calendar template I’m giving away as freebie today. It’s super fast and fun to make (and since it won’t contain any chocolate it’s even healthy and figure-friendly, lol). The template is included in .psd, .tif and separate .png layers and I’ve also included a ready-made cover/top for a very quick project. The picture shows our advent wreath from last year in front of my collection of Santas ;D

Lots of things – and a freebie

Lots of things – and a freebie

Today there are lots of things I want to tell you about – hope I won’t forget anything!

Have you heard about theStudio’s Digital Day Out? Here’s what Manda has to say about it:

“We’ve been talking about this event for months. We’ve shared some sneak peeks on our Facebook Page and Blog and we’ve been teasing with hints about what’s to come. But what is Digital Day Out?

The cost of your $25 ticket gets you admission for the full day, a goodie bag valued at over $150, filled with gifts from our Design Team (including discounts, photo frames, glow in the dark goodies, treats, magnets, toys and more!). You’ll also receive a USB drive filled with digital supplies including 4 templates, 2 mini kits, 1 mega collab and a CU grab bag!

Lunch is included, as well as snacks and beverages. You’ll be given the opportunity to test the Silhouette Cameo, complete a hybrid Make & Take (which includes chocolate). Of course there is time for scrapping and games. We’ll be playing Bingo, hosting a live speed scrap and we’re holding a fun, casual, Q&A session with Nibbles Skribbles and Scrappy Cocoa!

We (Nibbles and Scrappy) will be available all day to help answer your questions, show you the ropes and host the entire day. We’ve got all the goodies for a photobooth, and we’d love to take a silly picture with everyone who comes (or a not silly one, if you’d rather).
Finally, there are HUNDREDS of dollars in door prizes to give away!”

I’m so sad I won’t be able to go and meet you all – but for me it is half a world away… maybe I should talk Toiny into organizing one over here? ;D At least you’ll find some goodies from me if you can go there! 😀

I’m happy to announce a couple of new products in my store – a new collection, a new oldie bundle and a grabbag (no, not the DSD one yet, but there will be one – actually two… lol):

After all the Holiday things I have been creating lately (some of them for Megas and Grabbags that have not been published yet), I needed to do something else, and here is the result: Time to Breathe

In between our daily tasks we all need some time to breathe – even more so in the Holiday Season.

This kit was inspired by all these moments that make us deep breathly and relax, to gain new strength, calm, hope and joy!
Done in soft, luminous yellows, blues and greens just scrapping with “Time to Breathe” will renew your spirit.


Here is a quickpage created with this wonderful kit for you all to enjoy:

But that’s not all that’s new in my store, I also have a new  Oldies but Goldies bundle with a Christmas/Winter theme and a new Retired Freebie Grabbag:

… and last a reminder: Tomorrow will be the last day of my Fall and Halloween Sale! (see post below).
