can't live without!! & WIN!

can't live without!! & WIN!

i have to admit, been thinking a lot about the House of 3 ending… it makes me sad! i want to say thank you for all the emails, and all of the kind words that many of you have sent me. i have been overwhelmed!  anyway- been thinking about the things that i can't live without… files that i LOVE- and use over and over… check these out, and make sure that you have them!

1. white rounded corner kit…

i use this over and over- and it comes w/ png files and brush set.


2. Fall Junque Frames kit… these are so cute! i love them…


3. Negatives frame kit

4. black rounded corners... so cute!
5. collage story board... can't tell you how many times i have used this! i love it


6. inked edges… these are great!


7. i LOVE these… Typewriter NOtes and QUotes


8… and these are my all time favorite! I love yellow! House Warming Sunny Backgrounds


9. i love the postcards too… these are a staple!


10. must have these… so cute: French Ooh La La Brushes


11. tickets… love this!


Most of these kits are pretty much digital… so you need to have Photoshop, and a little knowledge of how to use the PNG files, and the brushes… they are perfect for digi scrappers, as well as all hybrid needs!! i know that is intimidating to many of you who are 'traditional' scrappers- and for the last 2 years, Rhonna, Janet and i have been pretty dedicated to promoting and educating the idea of "HYBRID" scrapbooking-

by "HYBRID" i mean, that you use digital files to make your own embellishments, or maipulate the art to create mini-books, cards etc. etc. the great thing is that once you  buy the art- you can use it again and again! it never runs out! have you ever had a piece of paper that you loved so much, or a card or something you bought, that you didn't want to use cause you couldn't replace it?  or maybe you wished that you could 'mass produce' something for a card, or invites …well, that is what makes hybrid SO COOL!

Monday is the first day of the next class i am teaching with Jessica Sprague … called "mouse paper scissors MOM". This class is PURE HYBRID… which i LOVE! the supplies needed are things you probably already have around your house- like file folders, and shipping tags etc… and a few tools you probably already have as well… AND, this class will be a good excuse to buy this BEAUTIFUL Glimmer mist color: Trunk Bay… it matches PERFECTLY with the new Bo Bunny collection "Gabrielle".

As i have mentioned, Bo Bunny is sposoring this class, and the papers are AMAZINGLY beautiful!  I will tel you, that these projects are 2 of my most FAVORITE ever!~  i am so excited about them… the class is called "MOM".. but the projects are very GENERAL– so they can be used for anyone, anything- it's a 2 week class, which will include photoshop lessons from Jessica, and then video lessons from me in putting the whole thing together- students can download the project step-by-step PDF's,  so you can create in your own space, at your own pace! it's awesome… it's going to be so much fuN!… SO, if you have been wishign you knew how to use all these amazing Brushes (seen above) and manipulate PNG files etc etc… take this chance! you can download a 30 day FREE TRIAL of photoshop elements and check it out! see how really EASY and d0-able it really is! Jessica is amazing at showing you EXACTLY how to do each and every step. i have learned SO much from her! it's just exciting- if you click on the class link above you can check out a sample of what the videos are like… this is a sneak peek of the Stationery Set that we will be making- you will absolutely LOVE this, and probalby want to make a couple to give to friends, brides, moms, teachers- this is so gorgeous w/ the Gabrielle Collection, but once you learn to make it, you can use ANY papers, and elements to make them again and again!


you can check out a little SNEAKY peek into this project here… love it!


hope you will join in the fuN! i am giving away 1 spot here on my blog… leave a comment to win and tell me what your favorite Glimmer mist color is!! my favorite color 'today' is TRUNK BAY! looks awesome w/ the Gabrielle Collection from Bo Bunny!  i am also giving away 1 spot on my facebook page… so leave me a comment on there, and i'll pick the 2 winners on Monday…

    I would love to win a spot in your class, that would be so fun because I love hybrid.
    My favorite glimmer mist, or the one I use the most is Iridesent Gold, because that color is so great on top of other colors to get them blend well together. But for bright colors I love Viva Pink. And it is difficult to choose, because I like all the colors I have…

    My favorite Glimmer Mist color is Sugar Maple!
    I must tell you that I just found your videos while I was laid up after foot surgery…what a delight! I’ve viewed most all of them…so inspirational! After viewing your hybrid designs, I was led to sign up to take beginners class with Jessica.
    Needless to say, I would LOVE a spot in your Mouse, Paper, Scissors, MOM class…
    Thanks so much for the opportunity to win, as well as the wonderful videos that I will continue to look forward to seeing!
