Late new releases!

Pin It

Wow what a week it has been. I was unable to get this post ready for last Friday and then the weekend came and went and now here it is already TUESDAY!  Yikes.

I have two new releases this week....

The first is this collab with Krista of Sahlin Studio, Print It: Pillow Box Door Hanger - Spring.

Then next up I have a Sweets Cover v.1 - this one is sized for the Big Pack of Tic Tacs.  Perfect item for a shower favors, teacher appreciation (with something else of course... the teachers deserve TONS of goodies that week - which is coming up soon), or just plain fun to have in your bag.

Here are some examples for you to oodle over...

Pin It

I am releasing my Big & Tall Gable Box this week. You may have seen it before - it was available in The Digi Files in March.  If you didn't grab it then you should have as it had a bunch of other great stuff in there besides this template. The Digi Files are only $5 without the playbook and $7.50 with.  Plus when you subscribe you get other fun free goodies as well!

The accordion flower on the example is using a template available in my store and the word art can also be found in the store - Write it Out: Spring Sentiments.

Here are some other examples from my CT:




So many uses for these!

Log Your Memory...

Pin It

When I first found Log Your Memory ... I thought now why didn't I think of that!  I showed off my Log Book at some point (here it is again) and I LOVE it.  I love to see the challenges for the month as well as put little notes about what is going on in our life right now so I can remember to scrap it later.


Besides a fabulous Log Book... the challenges are totally "real-life" based.  I love scrapping what is REALLY happening. Here are a couple layouts that I have already shared before but that I did as part of a challenge there.

 habits bucket

Well... Lucky me! I am the featured designer at Log Your Memory this month!   What does this mean?? Lots of fun goodies are available to grab - just for completing the challenges. Everything is perfect for both hybriders and scrappers.  Nothing has been revealed yet... so you will have to wait and see!

 teddy goals

Put Wednesday the 6th on your calendar 6pm PST - we will be chatting in the chat room there!  I will remind you again but always good to have it on your calendar!

I posted a few posts ago about this great Food & Water package available from Shelf Reliance.  I should mention this is the same kit you might be seeing advertised by Costco... but as a consultant we BEAT the price and have the free food and 1/2 priced items as well. - In case you were wondering!

Word Art, Egg Baskets & More

Pin It

**Blog Hop is below**

Sorry I have been a little bit MIA around on my blog here!  Things have been busy in other parts of life, a big part is with Shelf Reliance. I have been doing lots of education about our food and emergency preparedness. So many are wanting to get prepared now that it is fresh in their minds what an earthquake can do. We live in California - earthquake country! If you need help or have questions about becoming prepared - send me an e-mail adamandkrisi at gmail dot com.

Ok... on to the releases for this week:

The first is a portion of my contribution to The Daily Digi's The Digi Files.  A new month is starting (how can it already be April?) and a new set of designers will be featured there - be sure to check it out!


This word art pack is FULL of spring sentiments just waiting for a layout or hybrid project.  Here are a few samples from the CT:

Also uses my Spring Shaped Cards.

This is so cute... what a fun way to use the word arts but also what a great gift!

These two from me I used parts of the word arts and combined them with parts of kits:
welcomespring stpatricksday

And my second release is a re-release. I have Egg Baskets - coming back, they now include SVG cutting files!


Here is another example:


Also wanted to mention I am the sponsor of a challenge over at The Paper Trail during the month of April.  Head over there and see what great projects their Design Team has created with my products and participate in the challenge to win a gift certificate to my store at ScrapMatters.  Be sure to see the post below for a fun blog hop!

And just a reminder that there is one day left in the Spring Cleaning Sale that some of the Designers at ScrapMatters are participating in. I am not so good at cleaning - especially spring cleaning!  But do head over and help the other designers clean out their items they are retiring.

I got my inspiration from the idea of a mint and what I would put them in to give them to people. 
I used April's The Paper Trail Kit and Krisi's Box It Up Small Square Box template to make it. 
This box is just perfect for little candies or trinkets!

Here  you can see how I just threw some mints wrapped up into the box, but it will also fit the Ghiardelli chocolates too.
