50% off my stores for memorial day!

My stores at K Joi Studios and DigiScrapStation! If you haven't had time to check my designs out yet, now is the time to snap them up for amazing prices!

Two New Products and More About ME!

First of all, I wanted to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY KARI! I hope you have an awesome day and enjoy your ice cream cake.

Now in designing news, I have two new products in both of my stores today. They are the Sticking with Glitter Alpha and Doodling the Rainbow Papers.

Also, I was tagged by Kari for the 7 things about me so here goes!

1. I first discovered digiscrapping in 2005 on a mommy message board.
2. My first digiscrap downloads were some freebies from Shabby Princess.
3. My first digiscrap design was my Ocean Swirls Alpha.
4. My first creative team was with Katie Mann Designs (I am still on this CT).
5. I am also on the CT for Heather Manning Designs and Dielle Designs.
6. The first digiscrap message board I posted on was Scrap Outside the Box.
7. Now for something not digiscrap related, my favorite colors are red and lavender.

That's all I have, I won't tag anyone else because I think everyone I know has been tagged already. have a great day everyone!

Quick Page Tag and a QP Freebie from Me!

As previously mentioned I was tagged by Scrappy Cats and Jen Smith Designs for a Quick Page Game. Here are the Rules:

Use one or all of the three Quick Pages linked and post a page on your blog wth it.
Then if you are a designer make your own qp or just tag 7 more people to use ours.

Here is my layout with my new QP created from my A Day Just for Dad Kit.
Download it here.

Here is my version of using Nancy's QP.
Get it here.

Finally, here is what I made with Jen's QP.
Get it here.

Now, I am going to tag seven people, but if you aren't tagged for this and it looks like fun or you just want the QP freebies feel free to grab them!

Here are my seven that are tagged:

I hope everyone has a great day! Now if I tagged you to do this and you don't want to or don't have time please don't worry about it! I just thought it would be a fun way to share some of your designs with people and get some free quick pages (technically it was Nancy's idea, but I still think it's a lot of fun!)

Copper Works - The Full Kit

My Copper Works Mini inspired me to create a full kit. If you did not get a chance to snag the free mini you can still do this a few posts down.

The Copper Works Kit, Elements Only Pack, and Papers Only Pack are currently available in my store at DigiScrapStation. They will soon be available at K Joi Studios as well.

In other news, I have been tagged by Jen and Nancy to complete a Quick Page Challenge. Look for this later and even if I don't tag you, please feel free to play along.

Have a great day!

Getting to Know ME!

I've been tagged twice to post seven interesting things about me so people can get to know me better, so it's about time I actually did it right?

So the rules first:

1. Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog .

My Taggers:


  1. I am currently expecting my second child and thrilled about it.
  2. I am halfway finished with my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education.
  3. I have lived in or visited almost every state in the continental U.S.
  4. I go to Montreal every year to visit relatives and vacation.
  5. I am completely tone deaf and cannot plan an instrument to save my life.
  6. I have been digiscrapping for three years and recently started designing.
  7. I am currently designing in two stores: DigiScrapStation and K Joi Studios
Tagging others...I'm not going to tag anyone else because I believe everyone I would tag has been tagged already and many may be too busy to complete this.

I have also been tagged by Scrappy Cats for a Quick Page tag. I will get to this one tonight and I may even add my own twist by adding an additional free Quick Page for you to tag others with as well.

I made it to the second round of SYTYCD!

There are tons of things going on right now, but I am loving all of this!

I made it to the second round of the So You Think You Can Design contest at Scrap Orchard and I have been working like crazy on my next entry for it. I have some gorgeous papers finished (In my opinion) and some fun elements so far. I am working on another alpha to include and some other fun stuff before it is ready.

In other news John got me a Bamboo Tablet for Mother's Day and I have been playing like crazy with it.

Also, DigiScrapStation will be having the official Grand Opening on National Cookie Day (May 15th). There will be sales, games, some free stuff, and in general a ton of fun. Make sure you stop by!

SYTYCD and layouts

More awesome entries have come it to the SYTYCD contest. It is a bit intimidating to see some of the other designs people are coming up with, but regardless of what happens this has been a blast!

Here is a layout I created using one of the two page template entries and one of the mini kits.

That's about all for now. More to come later.

SYTYCD and Stores

Hello Everyone,

The contest appears to be going very well so far. There are some great entries and I cannot wait to see what else comes in by Wednesday night. Regardless of how any of us do in the contest I feel that we are all learning quite a bit from one another and it will be/has been a great learning experience.

As I read this morning on another blog, everyone has to start somewhere.

If you want to see some layouts that have been created with my mini kit you should check out the Scrap Orchard Assignment #1 layout gallery. I absolutely LOVE what has been done so far and I cannot wait to see more!

In other news, I hope to have some news to release about a place to buy some of my designs within the next few days and for sure by the end of the week.

If you've enjoyed my freebies so far stay tuned because on Friday I will set up a new freebie for all of you that will stay up over the weekend. Next week you'll also (hopefully) be able to look forward to my second entry in the contest.

I'll keep my blog updated with new information on the contest, my freebies, and the store as new news comes in. I hope everyone has a great day!

Hopefully tomorrow I'll have some news on a possible store for you to buy other designs of mine.

Have a great day everyone!

NSD...whew what a day!

What an amazing day today was! I had a blast with chats, sales, and fun games. I was shocked to see how many people downloaded the crumpled circus alpha on my personal blog. If you missed it don't worry you can still get it Sunday.

I am entering the So You Think You Can Design contest at Scrap Orchard that starts tomorrow. I've spent all day working on an awesome mini kit for it. I believe the mini kit will be up for free on Scrap Orchard when its submitted. I'll put a post up with a preview and a link when it happens.

I hope everyone else had a great day and got some great deals as well!
