Back into the swing of things!!

Hi everyone, Gina here!!  Things have been so busy the last few weeks with school starting, homework, and getting back into our routines it seems like there has been NO time to design!!  Finally I think have our schedule down so I can get back into the swing of things (and MORE designing)!!  I hope you all have had a great week and are ready for the weekend ahead!

I am happy to say that I have been able to get a few things in the shoppe this weekend – and it felt so great to design again!  :)  There is a new, fun alpha and a paper pack that has both funk and simplicity – the best of both worlds!

A fun and whimsical alpha with a little bling – ‘Glitzy Alpha’ is a large, cardboard alpha with colored gems added to brighten your pages. Throw one letter here or there to add a little pizazz to your page or use several for a bright, bold title.  You will love adding a little glitz to your pages!

Also, a paper pack with 12 colorful and funky papers that will go great with your LIFE 365 pages!  Also included is a great textured, basic cardstock paper in 20 colors that coordinate with the colorful and bright ‘Funky Papers.’

These new products are 20% off all weekend, so grab ’em and save a few $!  Also, check out our shoppe for other great deals throughout the weekend!

Before I go, I wanted to post a chance to give away these new items!!  We are going to our little home-town fair/carnival this weekend and then I am running a 5K on Monday!  Lots going on for us.. if you just let me know what fun little something you are up to this weekend and I will give away a couple of each new products to random winners!  So, lets hear it, and I hope you have a great one!!!  HUGS!

  1. We are going to Burney Falls in northern California this weekend. We used to go all the time because my grandparents used to live there, so it will really be a trip down memory lane.

    I love the new products, but I’ve spent all my birthday money! Maybe I’ll win! Otherwise, have to save up for a while.

  2. We are going to go to a famous hot dog place for my step-father’s birthday. It should be fun to take the two hour drive. Hopefully we will also get some nice weather to go swimming.

  25. Your new stuff is terrific as always. I don’t have much special going on this weekend, but today was a fun day with my two youngest granddaughters (5 and 1) at the lake where they found deer waiting to eat out of their hands. We saw does, bucks, and fawns, all gentle. The girls loved it!

We will also get to see my other brother’s identical twin girls for the first time (they’re about 6 weeks old), so yay, we’re going to have a blast.
