A couple new layouts!

I just wanted to share my two latest layouts! I tell you, I just don't get sick of Sassafras....or handstitching for that matter. Lots of those on both pages.

The fabric embellishments like the one I used on my Jubilee LO are available in my shop. So fun....I just couldn't resist using one after I made them!

I also just finished up another batch of Vintage Button Rings, as well. Here's a peek of the designs before they were cleaned and assembled:

I've already taken the photos, now I just need to get them edited and listed in my shop. More to come soon....a new Kitschy Digitals LO is in the works!

Anyone want 33 FREE digital kits? is having a blog hop this weekend to celebrate the 3rd Anniversary of the site, and you can collect free digital kits from all the site's designers! As I said, they're all FREE, but only for this weekend. All the details are HERE and you start with Jessica's blog HERE.

Here's the Kitschy Digitals kit from Danielle:

And here's the Hybrid LO I did using the kit:

The cool thing is that all 33 kits are color coordinated, so you can mix and match. And you don't have to be a digital scrapper to use them. I print digital elements out on textured carstock, then paper scrap as I normally would. Since I don't have a 12x12 printer, I patchwork the papers in the background to cover a whole 12x12 piece of paper. You could even do this for other crafts....card making, gift's not just limited to scrapbooking.

Get out there and collect all your kits!

Layouts and babies and dollies...

Of course, I have been a bad blogger AGAIN! I have so much to share! First of all are the layouts I have done for Kitschy Digitals in the last month. Danielle released some AWESOME kits in May. Here are the layouts I did with them:

On my 7 Months layout, I used the Watercolor Doilies Paper Collection. Since I don't have a 12x12 printer, I just resized them to 3x3, printed them all out, and made a patchwork background. This way I was able to use ALL the papers. The frame and the lemon are also from KD.

On the Coral Jean layout, I used the Granny's Attic Kit. This is my absolute favorite kit that Danielle has made! I just love it. I printed out the potholder in several sizes, then layered it with pop dots in between. I also did the silk flower in layers to add dimension, then sewed little pearls over the printed ones. Those are ACTUAL yo yos, pins, and buttons. The printed stuff looks so real you can hardly tell the difference!

I also wanted to share Fisher's 8 month photos. This cute kid is growing so fast! His EIGHTH tooth just came through this morning! When I was doing the photos, he kept smiling as soon as I'd take the camera away from my face, but he was "talking" through all of them, and they turned out cute, anyways:

I know I'm biased since he's my son, but isn't he just the cutest?! I love taking photos on our front deck because I like woodgrain look in the background.

One last thing to share. My dolly family is now up to two:

This is Jubilee. She's a Sugaroni Custom Blythe that I adopted from Plastic Paradise, and I just adore her red hair and freckles.

Oh, and don't forget today is One Buck Wednesday over at You can get the super cool Granny's Sewing Basket kit for only $1!

Well, that gets me caught up for the most part. I have some fun fabric and other supplies for new goodies I will be making, so I'll post photos of that stuff in the next couple days.

Ugh....spam comments!

I have been getting TONS of spam advertising comments on my blog lately, so I've turned on comment moderation. I hate to have to do that, but I'm so tired of going and deleting all those comments. Please don't let this keep you from commenting when I actually DO update!

I do have some stuff to update with, but I'm visiting with family right now. In the meantime, check out my Flickr, because I've been keeping that pretty up to date lately.
