It's been a while. And I haven't been mixing my media much lately...BUT I have been designing for digital scrapbooking. I don't know if you have stopped over to see my new site, but please stop by and leave a comment to let me know you were there.

I want to offer you all the chance to host a giveaway of my entire design library on your site. If you are interested, please contact me and we can see if we can make it work out. Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are all doing well!

~ Please post a link to my blog wherever you post designs using any of my products.~

I finished this over the weekend. I've had this piece of board sitting around, waiting to become something for quite a while now. I knew I wanted to follow the theme, "All You Need Is Love" and I knew I wanted it to include some fun new techniques that I've been learning. I love the overall effect and especially the color scheme. Now, what to do with it?

I just had to share this quilt because it made me smile. I can totally relate. You can find this quilt and lots of other beautiful artwork at Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's blog, Balzer Designs. Her pen and ink art is a whole lot of fun. Check it out!
I know it's been a while since I've posted a free digital scrapbook design, but I felt like sharing the love a little this month. Brave Girls Club has been a huge blessing to me to help fix some negative thought patterns and help me focus on the positive, so I decided to do a kit with a "little bird" theme. I've included some of my recent favorite quotes in the word art as well.

In order to get your free kit, hop on over to my digital scrapbook Facebook page and "like" it. Then I'll send you a link to download the kit. Sound good? Great! And... if you would like to see any of my other kits, please feel free to stop by Stock Hop Studio, my digital scrapbook blog.

Be aware it could take up to 48 hours for the whole process to take place, so be patient if you don't hear back right away.
To say that I am really enjoying my Soul Restoration class is an understatement. It is really going to be valuable to me both as an artist and as a person. Below you can see some samples of painted journal pages created using techniques from the class.

I didn't get a chance to take photos of the ornaments I made for the ornament least, not that I can remember. However, I did re-invent them as neighbor gifts and took a photo of them before they went out to their various new homes. I wish that I had thought of some of these ideas in time for the ornament swap, but, alas, I didn't. Enjoy!

I am considering posting a tutorial for this project if I get ten or more requests. It's really very easy to do!
