My newest kit, Briar Rose is an eclectic mix of slightly tattered & frayed papers and elements with just a bit of sparkle and silver. I think this is my favorite kit I have designed so far & I hope it will be one of your favorites as well. Here is a preview:

Enter as many suggestions as you like by Wednesday, February 21st at midnight EST. The person with the winning name will receive this kit free when it is available in the store. Here is a preview:

Tutorial for Curled Ribbons
ckbymommy at GDS found this tutorial for curling ribbons. No plugins are required :) I had to play with it this evening before going to bed & here are my results:

Download the bonus ribbons here.
Background paper not included.

The curled ribbons coordinate with my Dreaming in Blue kit, available in my store at GDS. You can find the Curled Ribbon and Bows tutorial here. This is a good tutorial for those who don't have the commercial plugins to make curled ribbon. It is written for PS, but should be able to be applied to other programs that have a warp brush or deform tool available.

A Free Template
Monday's are my day to host the Daily Download at GDS & today I have a new layered template for you. This is a sample of an new set of layered templates I am working on. I hope you enjoy it! Here is a preview:

Here is a layout I did using this template. When we bought our boat last summer, we took it to a river near the house to try it out. Our youngest dd is a bit stubborn at times & just wouldn't heed mom's advice. Talk about a bad hair day!

Journaling reads: I tried to tell you that you should put your hair up before we went out in the boat. You just wouldn't listen. I guess some of life's lessons you just have to learn for yourself.

Credits: My kit in progress; Stitching by Mandy Steward. Fonts: AlphaMackAOE, FatFinger. Look for this kit and the new set of templates in the store this month. I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Happy Groundhog Day!
According to our furry weather forecasters, we are going to have an early spring. The groundhogs in the news today were reported to not see their shadows, which according to legend means an early spring. Had they seen their shadows this morning, legend tells that we would have six more weeks of winter weather.

In celebration of this good news, I've decided to have a Groundhog Day Sale. Today only, purchase any product in my store at GDS regularly priced at $2.00 or more and save 40%.

Recently added items include my first set of layered templates:
