March kit release!

Your mission this month, if you so choose to accept it is to use song lyrics or part of a book passage on your layout. Here is mine - I used My Wish by Rascal Flatts on a layout for Keely's album.

February Kit Challenge

Hey everyone,

Starting with the February kit, we are going to challenge you!

I am giving the Design Team a challenge each month and we want to invite you to play along. Each month will be a different challenge. Be prepared! We want you to step outside of your comfort zone. We are hoping that each month you will try something new, something exciting, do things a different way. Please feel free to send a copy of your layout or your take on the challenges via email to the store and we will add it to the Blog (with your permission!). We cant wait to see your work.

February Kit Challenge - Sketch

My take on the sketch. I altered it a bit and made it into a 2 page layout.
More in Stock!!!

Just thought I should let you all know we got our Ranger shipment in....so we are fully restocked on inks, distress embossing powders (LOVE THEM!!), most of the stickles, as well as more GRUNGEBOARD!!!
Also....have you seen the stamp storage case...it is very cool, and there are refill stamp pockets perfect for storing the clear stamps!!!

Hope you are all having a great week, and not getting stuck in the cold!
Take care. Kari
