• September’s Winner

    Just a quick note to say congratulations to the September Featured Kit winner and to give a quick reminder. Pages must be posted in the comments of the post to count for the drawing, while I love seeing your pages by email/facebook etc. please also post a link to your page in the comments.  I know some of you don’t have an online gallery to link to but you can use a free photo sharing service such as Photobucket or even link to your page on facebook provided you have it set as “public” then I can see it :)

    Baring this in mind, there was only one “counted” entry for September, but what an entry it was, check out this stunning double pager from Andrea, I just LOVE it!

    Contact me by the end of the month to claim your gift certificate Andrea.
    Make sure you check back tomorrow to find out what this month’s featured kit is – thanks for stopping by!

  • Template Tuesday #18 & Game Winners Announced

    It’s time for another Template Tuesday! However, first things first, thank you to all of you that helped make my grand opening such a success. I had a blast and it was lovely to see so many of you registering for the store and taking part in the games/challenges! Talking of the games, lets announce the winners of the game #1! I numbered each comment as they were received and used random.org to select the winners…

    Game#1 winners

    So, congratulations to comment #40 – Lisa Kelly and comment #29 – Krista Cobble.  You’ll be receiving my next kit Wined and Dined BEFORE it hits the shop! Look out for a message/email from me later today with details!

    As for game #2, random.org selected the winning set of princesses as…


    So, if you picked either Cinderella or Aurora as your favourite princess then be looking out for a prize from me! If you entered on Facebook be sure to check your “other” folder within your messages… as messages from unknown senders often get sent there!! If for whatever reason you don’t find your prize email me.

    Lastly don’t forget, my Scraplift Challenge doesn’t end until Thursday.  There have been some great entries so far and EVERYONE who completes a page will get the Mr & Ms Mouse Journal Cards & some Mousey goodies that will never enter the shop!


    Ok now onto the template… This one is perfect for those of you that like clean and simple layouts with lots of white space… Or add a big, beautiful blend to the background and really make a statement:



    “See” you Friday for a couple of new releases! Wishing you a wonderful week!

    June Blog Challenge – QUOTED


    Who’s up for another chance to win a $10 GC to my store?? This month’s challenge is pretty simple. I just want so see a quote/lyric on your page somewhere.  It can be your title, on a journal card, in the journalling… anything goes! The only other ‘rule’ is to use at little something of mine on your page (freebies count)!. You can enter your layouts via my blog, Facebook page or email them to me, but I must receive your layout by midnight, June 30th to be eligible!

    Here are a few pages from myself and my CT featuring quotes:

    by Brandy

    by Brandy using Mania!, Boldly Go Alpha, Tile Alpha and Blocks Alpha

    by Rebecca using Play Well and Play Well Bonus Alpha

    by Melissa using Day & Night and Quoted: Walt

    by Linda using That Hat and Quoted: Walt

    by Melissa using Play Well and Play Well Bonus Alpha

    by Brandy using Baby It’s Cold Outside

    by Jlynn using That Hat and Quoted: Walt

    by Rebecca using Day & Night

    Using quotes for titles is one of my favourite things to liven up a page! “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” is a much more fun title than “Meeting Woody” and helps to keep pages fresh an imaginative. I can’t wait to see what you guys come up with!

    Happy Scrapping!

    I love seeing this mini in action -my girls rocked it as always!

    Did you take part in the games I ran over iNSD? If so lets see if you are a luck winner…

    First up, a lot of you played along with “How Many Mickey’s?” Rather surprisingly not one person guessed under the actual amount, it must look like there are way more Mickey heads than there actually are! The correct answer was …

    So congratulations to:

    Cissy Daniels Shields for her guess of 108;

    Sheryl McClenny Gibson for her guess of 110;

    and Claire McCaughan for her guess of 115!

    The second game I ran had you guys suggesting your ‘dream kits’. This was a tough game to narrow down – there were sooo many great suggestions! But I put my favourites to my CT team and they voted on their favourite and the winner is…

    Lisa Marie with this kit suggestion:

    “Mine would be Food and Wine Festival or Disney food in general. Ex. menu, knife, fork plate, wine, snack items. The food is a big part of Disney to us!”

    Congratulations ladies! I will be in touch with each of you later today to discuss your prizes!

    Thanks to everyone that took part!

    Lastly, here is a little freebie that co-ordinates with the Sorcerer mini, hope you like it:

    Have a Magical weekend and don’t forget to check out my May challenge!
