  • This is Halloween!

    I am soo excited for this weeks release!!! I desperately wanted to do a halloween kit last year, but I wound up getting REALLY sick and I didn’t get around to it.  This year I was determined to release a kit because… well because, I LOVE halloween!! So I’m not going to let a little thing like being at Walt Disney World stop me from celebrating the season with a brand new kit (and I also have a freebie for you at the end of this post, so make sure you keep reading). Let’s jump straight in:

    NIGHTMARE-ISH
    MD_N_Kit_PREVIEW

    Nightmare-ish was inspired by one of my favourite movies, The Nightmare Before Christmas. I LOVE how this kit came out! It contains, 12 patterned papers, 6 solids, 1 full upper and lowercase alpha and over 65 spooktacular elements – everything you need to create beautiful halloween pages!

    I also made a bonus alpha in a fun stamped design, perfect for adding a little extra touch of the macabre to your page:

    NIGHTMARE-ISH: BONUS ALPHA

    MD_Preview_N_BAI’ve had a crazy week of packing, planning and traveling to the States, so I haven’t managed to carve out any time to play with this kit… Yet, but I KNOW I’ll be using it to scrap all my halloween pics when I get back!! Especially after I started seeing the pages my team were making, they knocked the layouts for this kit out of the park!! See for yourself:

    Gorgeous right? And such a variety of pages with this one kit!  I know I’ll be using it a lot more when I get back, especially to scrap all the fun of this years MNSSHP (which I’ll be at tomorrow, eeek)! I also added a past participation prize to the store, since it was halloween themed it seemed like a good time to add it to the store:

    OH THE HORROR ALPHASMD_OTH_Alphas

    Before I get to your freebie I just want to remind you of the challenge Rebecca s hosting over at Mousescrappers. Scrap a layout following her instructions in the weekly challenge thread and you’ll receive this little Nightmare-ish add-on from me:
