Take a visit to the Olde West with me!

I've grown up in the western United States, so the concept of the "Olde West" is a familiar part of my experience.  I can remember multiple visits to ghost towns over the years, and I have always been fascinated by these vivid examples of times gone by.  Of course I have several photos, so I wanted to do a little mini kit with a few bits of victorian-inspired ephemera to showcase them.  Unfortunately, the mini got a little out of hand and turned into a full kit in its own right - and it's prettier and less "rustic" than I first intended, but I really love the way it turned out!  Here's the first installment in my new Olde West collection:

As you can see, beautiful rich jewel-toned papers mingle with some rustic elements and some downright pretty and charming bits here and there:

And a couple from me :)

Ghost Town is in the Digichick store now, and will be 20% off through Friday!  And in honor of the upcoming Fourth of July holiday here in the United States, both of my patriotic-themed kits will be 50% off through the 4th:

Stop by and check them out!  Have a great holiday, and happy scrapping!

It's time for a Summer Celebration!

Weeeellllll, ok, it's a little bit early if you're thinking fireworks and parades, but it's best to be prepared, right?  Bring on Summer Celebration, a soft and :gasp: pretty kit with a gentle hint of patriotic goodness and just a bit of shabby vintage charm:

 I thought it would be fun to move the color palette just a bit, so the blue has touches of teal, and the red leans to the crimson side, with a soft gold and green for balance.

My CT team rocked the layouts (as usual!) and showed the versatility of this kit:

 Love this hybrid card from Cathy at the Hybrid Chick!

Get Ready for a Chick Fix!

There's some exciting stuff going on at The DigiChick this week!  We have put together a new collection for you based on the same palette so all the goodies mix and match and you can choose the items you like best for your stash.  Best of all, through Monday they are all debuting at an amazing $1,2, or 3 sale price, so it's fun AND frugal!

My additions to The Chick Fix are the By the Bay collection - beautiful papers and elements with rich textures and a pinch of drama, with lots of extras to give your page just the right amount of pizazz.


And to kick things off properly, I have put each and every one of these in the $1 introductory price category.  Six great products for the price of a single kit!
