  • GRAND OPENING SALE and PixelScrapper Blog Train

    So super excited about opening in my very first online store today!!! For those of you who were curious about the garden party veggies I mentioned in last month’s PS Blog Train, the WimZs are making their debut along with a few of their friends, the WimZs Petz.

    Click on the sales ad below to take a wander through my new store, where you can pick up this free quick page from my Tuscan Sunflowers scrap kit. You will need to register for the store to complete the checkout process, but no PayPal or credit card information is required to pick up a freebie. (Of course, it won’t hurt my feelings if you decide you just can’t resist buying something )

  • Going to a Garden Party :) PixelScrapper August Blog Train

    My part of the blog train took a very different turn from where it started a couple weeks ago. When I first heard the theme “Garden Party”, I had this image stuck in my head of all these cute little veggies wearing party hats. I started drawing and ended up with a dozen adorable, whimsical veggie creatures, but they seem far too whimsical to pair up with any of the other submissions and I’m a little at a loss over how they might be used on a page. Therefore, I’m sure my little WimZ’s will make their debut in the near future, just not in the manner they were originally intended. So…here’s my far less-whimsical portion of the blog train. As per usual, I drew and/or extracted (from my own photos) everything in my kit, and would encourage you to use it in any way you need/want.

    Happy Scrappin’ everyone!

  • PixelScrapper July Blog Train Freebies!

    Posted on by Raye

    I was in a sparklin’ kinda mood when the color palette for the July PixelScrapper blog train was released. When the theme was left open, it was the perfect opportunity to get a little whimsical and a little patriotic all at the same time. Here is my contribution, along with a surprise quick page add-on. I hope you enjoy the goodies and, as always, I would love to see anything you create using my pieces. Click the images below for direct download.

  • A week of excitement & super cute freebies!!!

    Posted on by Raye

    A couple really exciting things happened to me this past week and I can’t wait to share!!

    First, while searching for inspiration on Pinterest in the wee small hours of last Saturday morning, I found a whole group of pins by COMPLETE STRANGERS back to my blog and my freebies!! I proceeded to completely geek out and bounce around like a hyper 4 year old on a sugar rush because people actually like my stuff: things that I created with my two little hands!

    THEN…later that same evening, I was invited to join the creative team for the very talented and super sweet Kathie of Kathie Stevens Designs. She’s been so awesome: taking me under her wing and answering a billion and one questions! I love the kits that she is featuring in her stores this weekend:
    Kathie Stevens Designs Featured Kit Preview

    To help celebrate, I made a couple matching quick pages to give away. You can pick up the quick page freebie for Penguin Pizzazz Pals here by clicking the preview below. And, if you head on over to Kathie’s blog, you can get the Lucky Baby Minty Bear quick page as a freebie from her!

    Penguin Pizzazz Pals Quick Page Freebie

    I hope you enjoy the pages, and if you’re interested in grabbing the featured kits, you can find them in the following stores:
    P4DSDesignz
    Kitten Scraps Shoppe

    I’m extremely honored and excited to be stepping out on this new venture with Kathie. I know already that I will learn a lot as a member of her creative team and from the bazillion more questions I’ll get to ask her over the next day or week or so (have to pace myself so as not to wear out my welcome, ya know ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

    Enjoy the freebie and head on over to Kathie’s blog to grab the other, as well!

  • PixelScrapper May 1 Designer Challenge Freebie

    The latest Designer Challenge from PixelScrapper had us rolling the dice to come up with the number of papers and the number of elements to be included in a mini kit. We were given the option of 1 or 2 dice, so I chose 2, knowing that I already have issues with editing, and with my luck I would roll 1s using only one die. With the 2 dice, I rolled 5 & 3 for 8 papers to be included and 1 & 6 for 7 elements. I chose a picture of my young friend, Teegan, and a pretty little tricycle planter as the inspiration for the kit.

    I hope you enjoy the kit and as always, welcome any feedback and/or links to your creations ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Mini Kit Challenge Freebie!

    I just finished another designer challenge over at PixelScrapper and I’m so proud of the way it turned out. The challenge included a specific list of what was to be included in the kit: 6 papers, 5 tags/labels/word items and 7 other elements, as well as: polka dots, the word “together” & leaves. So my biggest struggle with the other two kits I made was that I went a little nuts and created WAY WAY WAY too much stuff, so this time I concentrated on ONLY creating what I needed. Definitely a challenge! The other interesting twist to the challenge was that we were NOT to include any flowers or stripes! My first thought was “Uhm…huh? Seriously?” But it actually helped when it came down to culling my list of elements down to the limited number I could include. Anyway…enough prattle…lol Without further ado, here’s the preview of the Denim & Diamonds Mini Kit. Click on the preview to download for your digital scrapbooking, tagging and card making ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you enjoy!

  • March Kit Challenge (PixelScrapper) – Completed!!

    So, I’ve been quite neglectful of the blog aspect of my Lenten challenge, but I have completed my first full digital scrapbook kit thanks to the March 2014 Designer/Kit Challenge over at . Using daily prompts to create papers and elements around our own personal theme was indeed a challenge, but I had a blast! This was such an awesome and inspiring challenge that I think I’ve found a new obsession. There are 5 kits included. Just click on the images to download. I left them in the original weekly subsets to make download sizes smaller. Feel free to use these files for your personal/professional or commercial uses. Credit is not necessary, but always appreciated. I’d love to see anything you make, so feel free to add a link to your completed work in the comments ๐Ÿ™‚

    Happy Scrapping everyone!
