Christmas in July and stuff

The Studio is having their annual Christmas in July Sale through the end of the month - so stock up on Christmas scrapping supplies for cheap!  Click the flier to check it out!  

On a more personal note, this last week has been kinda insane here - my hubby has been out of town (which always makes things a bit crazy) my dad has been visiting while in town for some business meetings (which also tends to make things a bit crazy - my dad is the only person I know who can think that it is a good idea to sit down and fold paper air planes while I'm trying to get the kids to clean up....)  This much however, is normal amounts of insanity.  You may or may not have heard about the movie theater shoot out in Colorado this past week - this happened in my area - less than 2 miles from my home - at the theater I usually go to with my husband - and I knew people who were there.  I just ask that you pray for (or if you are not religious - send well wishes their way) the people who's lives have been affected by this tragedy - it was anxious enough knowing that it happened and not knowing if I had friends who had been there - I can't even imagine the pain of people who's loved ones didn't come home - the pain of people who watched their friends die.  Keep these people in your thoughts and prayers, and remember that though there is tragedy in the world - there is also incredible good - and for every tragedy there has been a miracle.

Stars N Stripes

In Honor of the 4th of July here in the US, I've got a new kit out called Stars 'N Stripes.  I was looking at a Pottery Barn Ad for a Patriotic Collection and was just totally inspired by the style - in making this kit, I was trying for a shabby style.  I just love how it came out!  Grab it now while it's on sale for 30% off!  Get it at STS or DSS

Also be sure to check out the fun extras - some shabby cardstock and some fun glitters - and if you are a designer, be sure to check out the layered overlays for commercial use.

My CT has sent me some great LO's with it - I just love this first one from Christie Dawn with her little Captain America!!!

Crystal's clustering behind the photo is just awesome and I love how she included her journaling.

This LO from Ginger is just incredible - I love her clustering an the how everything looks like it's exploding out from the picture.

This cute Layout from Lina was used for her son's red white and blue birthday party - check out that awesome Uncle Sam hat - she crochets those herself!!

And finally this great all occasion layout from Toni - this kit is great for so much more than patriotic layouts!

And a little freebie to get you scrapping!  A couple Clusters from my awesome CT members - these will only be available for a couple weeks - then they will only be gotten by getting the bundle!  Grab them and leave some love!  And there are really 3 clusters there - also sign up for the Studio Newsletter for another free cluster frame!

Happy Scrapping!!
