New collection 70 % off, new CU grabbag 77 % off, new newsletter… and freebies ;)

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! 😀

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).

Featured Designer – Sale and Freebie Add-on

Hi all – it’s my turn to be Featured Designer at theStudio! And while I’m all excited to see the wonderful pages created in the Featured Designer ChallengeI hope you’re excited about what that means for you:

This new collection is all springy, soft, cute, girly…I had so much fun creating it and can hardly wait to find the time to scrap all those little girl pictures of my daughter. Oh, and my waterlily pictures – some of them made it into the kit, as extracted flowers 😉

While writing this I just realized I haven’t shown you any of my February creations yet… eeek, I’m such and awful blogger!
So here they are:

First there’s my “Baby Bear Collection” – bright and fun colors for all those babies and toddlers that – like mine – don’t “do” pastels, LOL …

My Valentine’s Day kit was very “tweet” this year, here’s “Tweet Love” 😉

Then I did a kit that’s a little bit different from my usual style, “Venice Nights”, but I love how this turned out, with all the lace and velvet that makes you want to touch it.

Last but not least, there are two collabs:

“Winter Woods” a collaboration between Piggyscraps Designs, Aimee Harrison Design Studios and Deli Scraps.

“It’s my Birthday” – a collab between Nibbles Skribbles, eqrAveziur, Snips & Snails, Moon Designs and Deli Scraps

“It’s my Birthday”

Wow, that was a lot – I will do my best, trying to get better at keeping you updated!!

Have a great time (and don’t forget to pick up the blog train freebie in the post below!!)!
