Beginning my new CT position at STS

11 Aug

This week I started my newest CT position with Stuff To Scrap! I am so excited to be on the team, because it means that I get to work with awesome designers, awesome kits, and I have the privilege of helping host the monthly challenges!

This month I get to work with the August Collab kit “The Great Outdoors”. This kit is perfect to scrap those camping trip photos, your fishing trip photos, photos from that family vacation.. You know the ones. The kit displays beautiful rich blues and greens and is a great addition to any scrapping collection. 




Along with this kit I also had the chance to work with the beautiful bright colors of “Sizzlin Summer” by Scrappin Serenity! Bright pink, orange, green, blue and white come together to accent your summer photos, whether they are from the beach or just a day in the park. The full kit is available at the store (linked above), but you can pick up a free set of frame clusters that I made right here:



And this is what you get with this beautiful kit!



So that wraps it up for this month’s Stuff to Scrap CT review! Make sure and check the forum on the 15th when I host next month’s Desktop Calendar challenge! I have a super cute calendar made for the challenge! 


Garden Tea Party by Ponytails Designs

Whether you’re a Grande Dame who does “lunch with the ladies” or a little girl wearing your best dress-up clothes, tea parties are always a pleasure. Henry James once wrote, “There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.” It’s true… tea time has no other purpose than pleasure. So invite your girlfriends over, assemble the stuffed bunnies, and don your fancy party hats… it’s tea time!

Garden Tea Party boasts 84 elements, 34 papers, and one full alpha. You can also pick up the coordinating Dotted Papers and Word Art, or get the whole bundle and save! Everything is 30% off for the first week.


For a limited time only, you can pick up the Dotted Papers FREE on the Ponytails Facebook Page. Want the whole thing? Grab the bundle… it’s also 30% off for the first week.

Today’s SpeedScrap challenge at “Stuff to Scrap”

20 May

brothersThere was another speed scrap challenge today at Stuff To Scrap. I can’t pass up a fun challenge, so of course I had to participate. I decided to use the kit that I’m still addicted to, “A Noise With Dirt On It” by Ponytails Designs.

The weather is getting ugly here, we had several tornado’s touch down yesterday and there is one on the ground south of here now. The storm system is starting to interfere with our internet, so I’m going to have to cut this post short… But here is the layout I made today. I hope you enjoy it!

Joining the Lovebirds

13 May

Today has been a very busy day. Zane’s baseball team had their first double header of the season. It was a little rough on Zane. At the end of the game, a member of the other team ran into him full speed and knocked out his left front top tooth. I thought for sure that he would be ready to go home after that, but he insisted on playing the second game. I was so proud of him!

When we got home from the game, I had an email that I had been waiting for. I was added onto the “LoveBirds” team for the Stuff To Scrap forum. I’m really excited about this because even though I’m new to the forum, I’m having a lot of fun there. It is hands down, my favorite forum!

I also had a message from Ponytails Designs saying that I had gotten a $5 coupon to use at their store, because of a layout challenge I had done earlier this week. WOOT!

It took me awhile to decide which kit I was going to get with my coupon, but I finally settled on “A Noise With Dirt On It”. Having 3 boys, I do believe this will come in handy in my future scraps!  I can’t wait to make some layouts with it and show them off, so come back here later this week to see what I’ve come up with! And go check out their blog and store… They have some amazingly cute kits!
