Scrapbook Saturday: Unforgettable!

We all want to be remembered, always, to the ones we love. Today for Scrapbook Saturday, Melissa Craig has captured and remembered a special somebody. That's what scrapbooking is all about, after all! Melissa used elements from the "Forget Me Not" set to create this layout. The color combination she used really makes her sweet photos stand out. I especially love how she layered the doodled blossoms from this set with real-looking leaves. Digital scrapbooking offers so much flexibity in the creative process, don't you think? All in all, this is a stunning tribute to a special lady!

Happy Independence Day! (& a Sale!)

Happy Independence Day (4th of July) to all of our American friends! A special thank you, too, to our Veterans and their families, who have sacrificed so much to preserve our freedom. We appreciate you more than words can say!

For today's inspiration, I thought I'd share some of the many cards that our team have made in celebration of this day and those who continue to make independence something to celebrate. Also, we're having a little sale over at our shop. Use the coupon code INDEPENDENCE at checkout to save 25% off all orders thru Sunday, July 6. (Remember to click the "Apply" button after entering the code, or your order won't be discounted!) However you celebrate today, may God bless you and your loved ones!

A Shell in Your Pocket and Sand in Your Shoes

Are you enjoying Summer? I sure am! Although Fall is my favorite season, Summer runs a close second. It's so wonderful to be able to get outside and enjoy the bounty with which God gifted us! The mountains, the forests, the meadows...the bayous and deserts, and of course, the beach! For today's share, we have an exquisitely beach-y card by Kren Kurts, made with the "Seashells" set. Kren created a scrumptious textured background on this with some dry embossing and the addition of burlap. She inked up the image piece and then layered seashells all around. Doesn't it make you feel like you've just stepped on to the beach? It sure makes me long for a shell in my pocket and some sand in my shoes! :-)

Christmas in July! (New Digis)

Growing up, I always started listening to Christmas records (yes, I'm dating myself a bit there!) and making Christmas cards and gifts in July. How about you? Since I know that many of you are year-round Christmas crafters, especially our friends who donate (thank you!) to missionaries, Operation Write Home, and various charities, I decided to make Christmas the focus of our July release. If you're not ready to start your Christmas crafting, no worries -- we have lots of other digis in our shop for you to play with! ;-)

Here are the newest additions to our digi line-up. Click on a set title to go directly to that set in our shop.
