Mid September NEW products!

Good morning!    I have finally gotten back into a regular schedule, which is So nice.
Kids are in school full days, yippee!  After getting moved and having most everything packed up for 4 months, during the summer with 2 kids needing to be kept busy, there just wasn't much time left over for me to create very many products.
So the past several months have been very small releases and a little lacking on the birdie and ant characters, which I have had MANY requests for some new ones.
I hope you can check back on October 1st to see the 20 new products that will be released then.  You won't be disappointed! ;o)

FOR TODAY, I had so many products that needed to be released for October 1 (fall and winter), that I decided to pull a handful out and release them now.
As a bonus, one of the new products is FREE with a purchase LIMITED TIME from September 16 thru September 24 ONLY!
(and don't forget that the Ageless Antiques 1 from September 1 release is also still free w/purchase through September 24 too)

The awesome Creative Team chipped in for this unplanned release, and have some inspiration for you using these new sets!!!
I hope you can check them out and be inspired. Their links are next to each product for which they chose to create.


Gift Monkey - see team inspiration by Sarah, Cara, Jerusha, Joanna
this monkey was drawn 5 years ago as a clear stamp for CDS. It's long since been retired and brand new to digi format. I updated him a little with a thickness in his arms and legs. 
FREE with a purchase LIMITED TIME September 16 thru September 24!

Pumpkin Monkey see team inspiration by Pat and Glenda
Same monkey on a pumpkin. Happy little fellow too! 

What a hoot see inspiration by Susan, Carolyn, Cely
These owls were also drawn previously for clear stamps for CDS and long since been retired. If thy were digi before, they were only offered in outlines.  Here's a complete set including color!  What a bargain!   I created several combos and then included individual elements for advanced scene building.

NOTE:  The inclusion of the owls with tails and without tails makes for easy layering of the around branches (PNG files only). You insert the owl with a tail behind the branch, then insert the branch or other object, then insert an owl without a tail exactly above the other owl. Then it will look like his tail is behind the branch and his feet are holding onto the branch in front.

Just Nutty see inspiration by Vickie, Lola, Ann, Vicky
These crazy squirrels were never a favorite of mine when they were done for clear stamps long ago. But when I pulled my files up and starting converting them to digi and adding the digital color, they have started to tug on a sentimental string. I like them and I hope you like to create with them. I have included many combo options and then separate elements for your the advanced user to create your own scenes. 

Pretty Petite Scriptures see inspiration by Gail and Connie and Lori Z
A collection of little scriptures that were once clear stamps. I included some papers that coordinate with Praying Birdie.

Praying Birdie see inspiration by Ellen, Linda, Heather
NEW image!  Birdie praying, I've had a request for this on the table for awhile.

Card Cut 8 SVG (by L. McCroskey) see inspiration by Lori McCroskey
I love this Card Cut design, it is very striking!!! Shows off your patterned papers well.
Thank you for visiting us today and I hope you find something that inspires you to create!

New products and I'm back after moving!

I'm finally BACK!   I've moved, the house is "put back together", including my craft room yesterday thanks to my friend who came out from the west Houston area just to help me with it, and the kids are both back in school giving me time to work.   It was bleak over the summer, but I am getting back into the groove now.   For October, I have a TON of things scheduled.

AGELESS ANTIQUES 2 - More antiques!  These and the #1 set were clear stamp images from LONG ago at another company, but now in my ownership. These images have been retired and not available for years.  Now in digital format!

CAROUSEL DEER - FINALLY!  The 12th in the carousel series, so what does that mean?? You can now make a calendar with a different carousel animal for each month!  But if you want to wait to get started, there is a coordinating elements pack in the works for next month.

CARD CUT 7 SVG - by Lori McCroskey - This awesome e-template for your e-cutter can be manipulated into 11 different design layouts. Pretty cool!  Just import the SVG file into your ecutting software and follow manufacturer instructions for cutting.

ANTIQUE DESK - Cool antique desk works well with the Pen & Ink or Office Accents set.

HOLIDAY MINI MAZES - 16 mazes total, 2 different paths for each shape shown.  Great for inside kid cards.

MAZE DIGI PAPER - Larger mazes to use as backgrounds on large scrapbook pages or maybe even wrapping a small gift box, or using to cut an SVG box template out of.  The larger the maze, the more challenging it is too.  Only 1 correct path thru each, a PDF answer sheet is included.

LITTLE CHRISTMAS SCRIPTURES - Full set of Christmas greetings and several digi papers.

TOOTHPASTE & TOOTHBRUSH - These were dollar stamps long ago, since retired. Now available in digi format.

YARD YABBER -For your hard working man, or woman.  This was a clear stamp set long ago, retired and then offered as a digi set at another company before becoming under my ownership.  I recolored the images and created new digital papers.

GLORY DAYS - Military planes, some old and some newer styles.  This was a clear stamp set from long ago, long been retired and not available for years.  Now in digi format!  Good for Military cards.

Thank you for visiting to see our newest products, I hope you are inspired to create and wish you a blessed Labor Day!
