March LOs

You can tell I was busy with all this designing going on because I only have 18 LOs this month! That has to be a record LOW! Hopefully I'll be able to get to more challenges next month...

Sugar Pea

Haynay released this adorable new kit on Friday! Go pick it up at ScrapMatters while it is on sale for only $5!

Get Sugar Pea here: http://scrapmatters.com/shop/product.php?productid=1524&cat=0&page=3

And here is a little something that I made with it. I have been wanting to make a notebook for a while since I saw a tut at ScrapMatters. This was my chance! I don't often get to scrap with pink, so this was such a treat!


*A digital LO for your cover, and I made one for my back too (8.5 x 5.5 or a teensy bit larger). I messed up on this one, but my ultra talented friend at FedEx Office was able to fix me right up!
*Pieces of scratch paper folded in half - used side in
*Cereal box
*Glue stick or some other adhesive


1. Glue your digital LO onto the cereal box.
2. Cut down to size
3. Assemble your notebook
4. Bind using a Bind it All or some other binding service (FedEx Kinko's, etc)

Now I have a nice place to jot down inspiration for future kits!

Design Star Round 2

I am so excited that I made it to round 2 of ScrapMatters Design Star Contest. So even though the freebies will stop from my Brownie Scraps Challenge, they will keep coming for my the Design Star rounds, etc...

Round 2 instructions were to create a cohesive paper pack on whatever theme we would like with whatever colors we would like. I decided to focus on a favorite topic of mine...Earth Day!
May I present: Happy Earth Day To You! Just head on over to http://www.scrapmatters.com/ to view all of the fabulous paper packs and for download links. Reminder: you must be registered with ScrapMatters to view the Design Star Gallery. Make sure you sign up for the newsletter while you are there- there's a free kit every month!

This had to be my favorite week of the Brownie Scraps Challenge yet! Our challenge was to create a kit based on one of our interests. I thought it would be fun to focus on my love (or maybe obsession) with shopping! And I love all things pink, so here it is...

Here's a LO that I made about some of my favorite shopping haunts in Taiwan. I added a few embellishments that aren't in the kit:
Flowers from Bunches of Flowers by Britt-ish Designs
Baggin' It Alpha by Happy Scrap Girl
Again, be sure to check out the Brownie Scraps Designer Challenge (thread in forum, not the store) for more free goodies! The LO contest also continues. Don't miss out on an opportunity to win a $5 GC to their store.

Week 8

I know I'm a bit behind posting these, but I have been busy designing! Between my CT responsibilities, Brownie Scraps challenge, the Design Star Contest and getting ready to put some things in a store (oops, did I let that slip?) I have had my hands full!

Zip-A-Dee-Do-Dah Update

Sorry about the bad link (or no link at all!) I've updated the post with the download link.

Sorry again, happy scrapping!


Don't you just love that song? I started singing it on Wednesday while Clark and I were out for a walk, and it became my inspiration for this kit - my week 4 entry for the Brownie Scraps Design Challenge.


Hope you like it! Be sure to check out the other fun (and FREE!) kits at Brownie Scraps.Remember that Brownie Scraps is also have a layout challenge. When you use one of the free kits from the Design Challenge, you can enter your LO for a chance to win a $5 gift certificate to their store.

Here's a little LO that I created with my new kit!
