We have so much to talk about today!! First up, is the new kit from Ponytails Designs!
Ponytails Designs is back from vacation and is very excited to be a guest designer at GingerScraps for the month of September. Her whole store can be found over there… and it’s all 50% off through Monday! If you’ve had your eye on any of her products, now is the time to pick them up!
She has also just released a new fall themed kit as part of the GS Buffet. It’s called Crisp Autumn, and it’s all about the swirling leaves and many colors of fall. Check it out!
Next on our list is this awesome template pack! Ponytails also has this new template set, Templatopia Vol.10 in store today at both GS and STS. It’s on sale for 30% off for the first week as usual, but it will be 50% off at GS until Monday, as part of her store wide sale.
Which brings me to the next thing on my list! This month I have the privilege of working with Mommy Me Time Scrapper’s kit “Love Is”. It took me hours to decide which kit I wanted to work with, because she has a huge selection of beautiful kits! I finally settled on this one, and I couldn’t be happier. I love the red and pinks, mixed with the accenting blacks and gray’s of this kit. Perfect for your lovey black and white photos, those Valentines Day photo’s that you haven’t gotten around to scrapping yet, or any snuggley lovey pictures! It was perfect for the photo’s I snapped a few months back of my youngest daughter and oldest son loving on each other on the couch during family movie night!

And last, but not least, I have a freebie set to give to you from this beautiful kit! It includes 1 frame with a cluster on the corner, and 2 4×6 Journal cards! Just click on the image below to download it!
So that wraps up our news for this week! Enjoy the freebie and have a great weekend!
Today we are launching our new website! Never fear though, for those of you who are subscribed via WordPress this will change nothing for your blog subscription. My blog is still hosted on WordPress. Our new site, www.lyllahravendesigns.com will be changing and adding new things soon so feel free to check us out often!
On our website, you will find a calendar and a chat room. The calendar will be used for several things. Special events that we are part of, speed scraps, contests dates and more will be listed right there in one easy to find spot. You can find that here.
There are many exciting changes coming soon. As those unfold, I will post about them here and on Facebook!
Speaking of Facebook, have you had a chance to pick up the newest freebie? We hit 500 fans and I changed our Fan Freebie to “Coffee Break”.

Wow it has been a busy week! And it’s only Tuesday…
I made it through “This Scrapper’s Got Talent” week 3 and moved on to week 4. I honestly didn’t think I would make it this far, and am really floored by the people they eliminated this week. I don’t envy the judges in any way. I couldn’t do their job, for sure.
I am really looking forward to this week’s challenge for the contest. It is to redo a layout that we’ve done before, using the same pictures. The twist is that we have to use 2 new kits and one of the photo’s has to be blended. I am SO glad I found a fun and simple way to blend photo’s! Now I just need to decide which of my layouts to redo. I know it will be one of my first layouts, as I was looking through them the other day thinking about how terrible they really are. I’ve learned a lot in the past few months.
Another thing that happened this week: I officially joined the “A Fish Design” creative team!! I can’t wait to work with the team and LilyAnn’s kits. You will be seeing a lot more designs coming across the blog that are from her store(s). She has a store at both Stuff to Scrap AND Scraps ‘N Pieces.
Last but not least, Ponytails Designs is releasing a new kit this week and it is absolutely beautiful! Full of reds, greens, pinks and cream tones, this kit is perfect for your summer photo’s. From gardening and strawberry picking to baking with the kids, this kit is amazing. Here are a few previews of the kit:
I had the opportunity to work with this kit this morning and created a freebie exclusively for my Facebook fans! I hope you enjoy it, You can go download it below! And don’t forget to go by the store at Stuff to Scrap on Thursday, July 11th to pick up the full kit for yourself!!

This month I had the opportunity to work with some amazing people over at Pixel Scrapper. Together, we made a kit called “Sweet Things” that is everything sweet and sugary. From Candy to Chocolates, Cupcakes to Icecream and everything in between! Hope on over to the forum thread (No need to sign up, but joining it is a FUN community so please feel free to join us) for the links and previews of all the kits. There is also a list of the blog links for those of us who are participating!! Here is that link: http://bit.ly/PS_SweetThings

It seems like summer is flying by! We are just adjusting to needing to use the AC again, and here I am, making plans for July 4th already. I’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback about my mini kit from Memorial Day Weekend, so I’ve decided to make another kit, close to the same theme, for 4th of July. Same basic colors, Red, White and Blue. Flags, stars, etc.
What do you think of when you think of the 4th of July? Around here it means fireworks, BBQ’s with the family, swimming, music, and fun. So that brings me to my next question. What do you want to see from a 4th of July kit? Let me know what you would like to see, and it just may end up in the freebie!
