New Releases + a Freebie!

I have just put my first template set, Template Basics, in my store. I love a good, simple template to get the creative juices flowing and then make it my own.

And here are some LOs from my wonderful CT.

Isn't that photo just precious?
I'll grab the credits from Talia.

Using Be Mine, Valentine - My new release.

And now, onto the freebies! I've created two QPs with Be Mine, Valentine - as have some of my CT girls, I will link you up to their freebies as they add them to their blogs :)

Color with Caryn Grand Opening + Freebie!

Caryn of Color with Caryn is having a Grand Opening sale at DigiDesignResort - everything is 30% off!

To celebrate I have created a little freebie for you from some of Caryn's amazing CU products :)

Check them out:

Before I show you the preview and give you the link I thought I would explain a little. Late one night, when I was rudely awoken by something (probably hubby's snoring) I got to thinking about how I like the idea of quick pages - sometimes I would love to whip up a pretty page and be done. What I don't like is the excecution. I don't like that my photo HAS to be in the left hand corner or in the middle. I don't like that there are no options what-so-ever.

With this in mind, I have created a freebie with a few options for creating your very own quick page.

Download here and here.

I would really love to hear your thoughts and see your pages with this as I had fun creating this. So comment away :)

I also decided to do a QP of my own to demonstrate.

You can grab it here.

Help Haiti

On the 12th of January Haiti was hit by a massive 7.0 magnitude earthquake. The injuries, loss of life, recurrent aftershocks and complete devistation suffered due to this earthquake have been well publicised and covered the world over. If you want to read more about the events go here.

Not long after, I became involved in a collaberation kit, organised by Cyndi at WetFishDesigns, to help raise money for the people of Haiti. Many designers got involved to create a HUGE kit which is versatile and full to the brim of papers and elements.

Help Haiti is now instore and you can get it for $8!

Here is the preview of my part of the collab

Cyndi saved her part of the collab to give away as a freebie on her blog. Pop over to get it and don't forget to leave her some love - she put so much work into this kit and worked tirelessly on the previews. You'll simply love her portion, too, it's gorgeous.

You can pick up this kit at Divine Digital and Scrapbook Bytes.

Also available is a quick page album created with Help Haiti.

Be Mine, Valentine freebie

With Valentine's Day just around the corner I thought I would give you guys a little romantic mini for this month's ESS Color Challenge. I just loved playing with these colours, which resulted in this mini being bigger than my norm.

It contains 8 papers and 23 elements.

Download disabled - look out for this + an add on in my store!

And because I am in a 'feel the love' kinda mood I have decided to give my facebook fans a 50% off coupon tomorrow for my newest kit, Swan. So, if you're not already a fan there's still time to join before I send them out! Come along and say hi :) You can find my fanpage here.

Meet My CT

I have recently acquired a new and brilliant CT member and it made me realise I should have introduced you to the amazing girls who help me out by producing wonderful LOs before now!

So, in order of having joined me - here they are :)

Jane has been with me since the beginning and is always ready and willing to play with whatever I ask her and give me her thoughts. She has three adorable kiddos who feature in her layouts.

Her newest LO for me is, ironically, one OF me as we're participating in ADSR #5 - go see our blog for more info on the race.

Talia and I have been on at least three CTs together, I think. I am so thrilled she wants to be a part of my team. She has a beautiful little girl who gives her plenty of stories to scrap.

I have already blogged her most recent LO - you can find it here.

My mum is an honorary member - she has not had much time to scrap since joining us, but I am hoping she will soon do more. In fact, she has not done a LO for me since Blessed; my first kit! I do have it on good authority that she has started one with Swan...

Leticia joined us recently, she is a new scrapper and has two very gorgeous littlies. I am so pleased she chose to work with us and can't wait to give her more to work with :) AND today is her birthday... HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

This is her most recent LO

Rae has joined us in the last fortnight - she and I actually went to preschool and kindy together. She has been scrapping all of a week or so and is turning out amazing layouts. I had to have her on my team! She has the most precious little boy, who I have watched grow over Facebook (God bless FB).

Here are the LOs she has done for me using Swan

So, there you have it! My girls :) They're all so patient with me (since I take so long to give them something new) and they're all amazing, friendly, strong women that I am honored to know.
