Spring is just around the corner, and if you don't have spring fever yet, this gorgeous kit will surely give it to you! It is loaded with Daisy Bucket and Chatterbox papers, a 7Gypsies accordion purse kit, gorgeous May Arts ribbons, and so much more!
Here are a couple of things I have created with this kit.And believe it or not, I have even created a two page layout with this kit! It's been a while since I have done one of those. Check back in a few days for that as well as my purse and a card! I had a lot of fun with this kit, and now I'm ready for spring!

It's been a while since I've posted a sketch

I've been creating a few sketches lately and sending them to Creative Scrappers since I am now on the sketch team there, but I thought I would create one that I could share with everyone, so here is one that I whipped up the other day. Have fun, and if you use it, link your page back here so I can see it! I love seeing what people create with my sketches!

Back Porch Memories March Guest Designer

I am so excited and honored to have been chosen as the March Guest Designer at Back Porch Memories! Thank you to Paula and the BPM Design Team for this opportunity! Here is the page I submitted for the contest based on a sketch created by Becky Fleck.
I used Crate Paper Mia collection papers, Petaloo embossed velvet butterflies, Making Memories ribbon, misc. twill from Hobby Lobby, and KI Memories Alphabet Soup. Journaling reads, "You love your Chapstick, or "date-date" as you call it, and you have to apply it several times a day to your face and chin."

Creative Kits Blog

I have a new blog for you to check out! As many of you know, Kristine Davidson, Tanya Lamo, and I have been designing monthly layout kits for Creative Scrappers. These kits have been becoming increasingly popular, so as a way to keep customers and anyone else who might be interested informed, we have created a Creative Kits Blog! We will be posting information regarding the monthly kits, shipping notices, sneak peeks, featured layouts, and even some prizes and giveaways, so be sure and check it often to stay up to date!
For those of you who don't know what a Creative Layout Kit is, here is some information. Each kit contains enough paper and embellishments to create two layouts as well as enough additional product to create a few pages on your own. What makes our kits different from the rest? Well, before the kit is released to subscribers, the kit designer creates two layouts using that month's kit, and included in each kit are two custom made sketches and instructions based on those layouts. So the planning is already done for you! You have a complete kit with exactly what you need to create two gorgeous layouts, and you don't have to think about layout or design because the sketches and instructions are included! You don't get a bunch of extra stuff that you may or may not use, so you save time and money with these kits!

Sounds good, right? Prices for kits are as follows:
A single kit - $14.44 USD each ($16.95 Canadian)
3 month subscription - $12.74 USD each ($14.95 Canadian)
6 month subscription - $11.03 USD each ($12.95 Canadian)

That is a great value for everything you get in the kits! Click here for more information about Layout Kit subscriptions and to see sneak peeks of past kits. If you are a US resident, be sure to convert the currency to US dollars on the right side of the page. Current kit subscriptions will be starting with April kits as February and March have already sold out! Here is a sneak peek at what is coming up for February kits which I will be working on this week!

Making Memories Love Notes
The March kit features the My Mind's Eye Bloom and Grow collection.
Aren't they gorgeous? Be sure and check out the Creative Kits blog to keep up with what's new with these kits. Are you more of a mini album person? In addition to the layout kits, Kristine also designs some amazing mini albums each month. They are beautiful and so fun to put together, and these kits include everything you need to complete an entire mini album each month! Click here for pricing information and sneak peeks of past and upcoming Creative Kits! I hope you will join us in a little monthly creativity and inspiration!

More KnK Goodies and a Guest Designer Opportunity

Here are the rest of my creations with the February kit from Kit 'n' Kaboodles. I have completely exhausted this kit, and there isn't a stitch of it left! I had so much fun cutting out little butterflies and tags. If you want one of these kits, you need to hurry and get it now before they are sold out!Creative Scrappers is looking for a Guest Designer for our March 1st reveal! If you are interested, you must submit a layout based on the sketch below which I created. In honor of Valentine's Day, we want to see the color red this month, so we are asking that the background of your page be red. Click here for more information on this contest.
Speaking of Creative Scrappers, we were featured in the February Blog Bay at ScrapStreet! Click here to read the article and interview with Kristine. It also featured layouts created by Tanya Lamo, Sharon Suchoronczak, and me!I would also like to thank some very special and talented ladies who have so graciously given me some blog awards! I'm terrible at keeping up with these, but want you all to know that it seriously makes my day and puts a huge smile on my face when I get one of these! A big thank you goes out to:

Creative Scrappers Sketch #37

I can't believe it is already February. I'm not really sure where January went. It's also Sunday which means a new sketch at Creative Scrappers! This week's sketch was provided by Kristine Davidson herself! I actually got brave and dusted off my sewing machine for this page. I used papers from Graphic 45. Flowers are Heidi Swapp, Petaloo, and Bazzill. The large Heidi Swapp flower was pink, but I sprayed it with red glimmer mist. The chipboard pieces are sprayed with glimmer mist too. The red flourish that holds the title is a Fancy Pants glitter cut. The butterfly is from Petaloo. Click here to check out the sketch and what the rest of the Design Team created.
