Smudgy Stamps Volume 1 + a Freebie!

Hey Everyone!

I can’t believe it’s the last week of Iron Scrapper already!  I can’t wait to find out who wins the Surface Pro 2!!  This year’s Iron Scrapper has been the most fun.  I love the theme and I love all the amazing layouts you guys are making!

I don’t have an Iron Scrapper Mini this week, but I do have a new product!


I have these fun little digital stamps!  You can use them to add accents to your digital scrapbook layouts and art journal pages or print them out and use them with your paper products!  The set  includes an individual .png files for each stamp plus a brush file with all the stamps.  Grab these little stash builders while they’re on sale this week for $2!

I also have a fun freebie for you.  As you know, I’ve caught the art journal bug.  I love incorporating my own products in to my pieces.  I made this collage sheet and printed it up on circle sticker labels that I can add as elements to my art journal pages.


It’s fun to just get random bits and pieces of the page on a sticker!  You could also print it up on regular paper or a full page label and tear or cut it up to create fun bits of collage fodder!  I hope you enjoy it!

Have a great weekend!

Let It Grow


Many of you have asked and yes, this week’s collection was inspired by a song from an animated movie. But it might not be the one you’re thinking of!!

A couple weeks ago, Zoe and I were watching The Lorax and the song at the end- Let It Grow- really inspired me.  The Lorax has always been my favorite Dr. Seuss book and I think the movie is amazing.  I love the message of the story, individual responsibility and ownership, but I especially love that it is about redemption, righting a wrong and second chances. I found myself doodling in my art journal and when I was finished, I knew I had the beginnings of my next kit!


Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot.
Nothing is going to get better. It’s not. — Dr. Seuss


This is one of my favorite collections.  I had so much fun drawing all the doodles and putting together all the patterns and elements!  This week, the kit and all the coordinating pieces of the collection are on sale for 20% OFF:

and the Let It Grow | Bundle is on sale for 39% OFF:

I had so much fun making these brushes!  I am going to an art journal retreat tomorrow and I wanted to make some cards to trade with my fellow art journalers.  So I doodled these up in Illustrator and printed them out on plain white paper so they can be water-colored or painted and added to a journal or scrapbook!  I loved them so much, I decided to turn them in to a brush set and release them in my store!  And I used the brushes to make up some freebies that coordinate with my Captured Collection!  You can grab the InstaLife version here on my blog and the Journal Card version on my Facebook Page!  I also have an exclusive little brush freebie for my newsletter subscribers!

Capture Your December Cuttables: FREEBIE


This is the third year I’ve started a December Daily album.  I finished my 2011 album somewhere around November of 2012 and I haven’t quite finished my 2012 album yet…. LOL

This year I’m going to try something a little different. I’m not going to focus as much on the daily part as I’m going to focus on the stories.  This way if I miss a day here or there,  it won’t derail me as much because I’m setting out knowing I won’t be scrapping every day.  I bought the Studio Calico kit and I love Ali’s focus on transparency this year.  I’m combining the Studio Calico kit with some of the Capture Your December journal cards to create my foundation pages.  Now that I have the core of the album together,I hope to be able to complete the pages one day at a time.

I decided to start my album on Thanksgiving and my goal is to keep going until December 31.  I am really excited about the Capture Your December daily prompts Katrina Kennedy will be posting in the Scrap Orchard forum because in the past, I have really struggled with coming up with stories to tell.  For the most part, my December isn’t all that different from any other month and after I get the December basics covered, I’m often left a little lost on where to go next.  Katrina’s prompts will help give me ideas of stories to tell- holiday, seasonal and every day!


As I was putting together my foundation pages, I found myself missing some elements so I made some word art to cut out on my silhouette.  I thought I would share them with you in case you can use them too!

Make sure you stop by the forum and share your projects with us! Katrina’s first prompt  will be posted tomorrow!
