A New Award!

I'm very fortunate to have some great people out there! I've been fortunate enough to receive this award from two very talented individuals. Jay from Heartbeatz Creationz and Sue over at Sue31 Did It Tutorials. Traditionally those who receive this award pass it on to others who have not yet, but my gals have all received this. Thanks so much to you both for passing it my way *hugs*

Let It Snow

This new kit is now for sale in my section of Heartbeatz Creationz HERE or at The Creativity Box HERE. This is another tagger sized kit featuring 14 papers, 9 ribbons, 6 frames, 4 bows and 21 various other elements are for personal use only. 3 elements of which are hand-drawn by me.

Better late than Never!

Seems that little ol' me has neglected to inform everyone of a great collaboration kit put together by the great designers over at Heavenly Taggerz. The collab was put together with Thanksgiving in mind and is titled Gobble Gobble. My previous post regarding my past sale was made suing elements from my contribution to the massive collaboration and can be purchase over at Heavenly Taggerz. Just enter the store and have a look for the Collaboration kit link on the left!

Tag N Scrapz gets a new look!

Hi everyone! Over the weekend you'll probably notice that things look slightly different in here. Please bear with me as I try to get all the original bits back into place. One thing I have learned from all of this is that modifying a blogger template and playing with CSS can be quite a bit of work when you're a perfectionist like me! Well, I hope you like the new winter look and hopefully I'll have a new kit up and offered soon :)

Hard at work

I'm very sorry for the sudden silence. I have not forgotten creating, just the opposite. I seem to have done what I am famous for.....multi-tasking way too much. I seem to be int he middle of creating two kits at once. This evening though it has hit me that this is not such a smart idea. So while tonight I have nothing to share or show, I do promise that by tomorrow night I'll have a little something for everyone. Thanks for checking up and sorry for disappearing act.

And the part that I'm really excited about....a good friend of mine has been sweet enough to aware me with an award.

Debz of A Little of everythinghas given me this award. The downside however of having the same blogging and tagging friends however is that I'm left with no others, as they've already received it!
So I strongly urge you to check out the blinkies on the right, as they all deserve this *hugs*

Glorious Gingerbread

Wow, there has been a LOT of activity here on this blog in the last couple weeks. Well, not only the blog but with my activity online in general. The creativity has started to flow again and this is largely due to one of my online friends whom has been an amazing amount of support and encouragement.

With that, I would love to take the opportunity to showcase her work and show off a little beauty of a scrapkit that she has made herself. It's called Glorious Gingerbread and it available in both full kit size and in taggers size. This tag uses only a few of many goodies you can find in the kit.

You can see Deb's great work at her Blog A Little of Everything or even purchase her kit at Heavenly Taggerz HERE.

Well I'm honoured!!!

A very good friend of mine, Debz of A Little Bit of Everything has honoured me with an award! While all my contacts have already been touched with this little beauty I would like to share it.

Thanks so much, this truly does mean a lot to me. While I can't pass it along, I would be happy to continue on with the requirements of the 7 things I love:

1. My Husband
2. My kids
3. Art both digital and traditional
4. My friends, online and offline
5. Italian Food
6. Choklit
7. My PSP and computer

I truly hope this award keeps rolling along and I'm happy that it landed with me :)

Tag N Scrapz Update

Well, I've been thinking about this for quite some time and with a lot of patience and assistance from friends, I have started to offer a bit of my work for sale. So far I have only listed one kit, but I'm hoping that by the end of the week I'll have at least one or two more up for sale on the site. You can access my kits through Heartbeatz Creationz, Adventurous Scraps and The Creativity Box and you can visit my page specifically by clicking the blinkies at the top.

My first kit for sale is called Chocolatey Pink

I will still be offering lots of free goodies here though so please, don't be thinking that those have ended. I'm a big supporter of freebies and those won't be ending by any means. Thanks and I hope that you enjoy the new work that you'll be seeing for sale.

Quilted Watermelon

Well, it's been absolutely way too long, and this little blog of mine has been neglected. Sorry for that but life's been pretty crazy this past little while. I'll try to be better though and get in here more often though and provide a few more freebies when the time presents itself.

That said, I've put the finishing touches on the next freebie kit as previewed above and you can download the entire kit HERE. Thanks for looking and I really do hope you enjoy the kit!

Hey Taggers! Love Jasmine, check these out!!!!

As a tagger and as a fellow artist, I just absolutely LOVE and admire the work of Jasmine Becket-Griffith and her little strangelings......and I was over the moon once I found out you can get these on checks! The verdict is still out however as to whether or not Canadians can order these (there's the matter of whether they comply with Canadian banking regulations and standards) but I do know that they are perfectly acceptable for banking in the United States!

Fairy Checks
Check out these personal fairy checks, address labels & checkbook covers! Jasmine Becket-Griffith, Amy Brown and more...JASMINE BECKET-GRIFFITH FAIRY CHECKS & MORE!

Click on the picture to be taken to the order site. Not into Jasmine? Well, there's many different fairy things and fantasy themes to choose from ;)

Chrome Bling

New Freebie kit called Chrome Bling. Papers and Elements included with standard TOU included in the file. Enjoy and please remember to abide by the terms. Thanks and enjoy!

You can download the kit, HERE

I'm still here......

Well, for the most part. Real life seems to have taken over for awhile and will be for a few more weeks yet. I've been a little caught up with other things such as my website dedicated to my non-digital art, my family and work.

In the next month or so I'll be introducing some PTU kits. No worries though as there won't be an abundance of them but rather something I'm trying out. I will still be doing some freebies when I can get the time to put them together.

Hopefully in the next twenty four hours I'll have another freebie to post ;)

My First EVER mini kit....

Although I'm pretty sure this has crossed that line and has become a full size kit. Just recently I've joined a fabulous group that put out a challenge to put yourself out there and challenge yourself. I must say I'm very pleased with my results. All the pieces are made by myself, some by accident ha ha. While others were results from various tutorials. I think I've become a little addicted to making my own kits!

You can download the kit here: Lovely
