just a very quick heads-up: Don’t miss the awesome Revenge-of-the-Fifth specials at theStudio!
There are lots of awesome deals to snag – all for one day only (and they will not return for NSD either):
- collections for $5
- kit bundles (5 kits for $5)
- collection bundles (5 collections for $15 – do the math, that’s $3 for a complete collection – pure madness, lol)
Toiny did a great post on theStudio blog explaining the new store feature “Buy Together” we’re using for the bundles, you can find it here.
Yes, it is!!! Woohoo! Happy first day of Spring! Or was that yesterday, since 2016 is a leap year? Oh – who cares, it is definitely, officially Spring now here 😀
I love sitting on our terrace, snuggled up in a warm jacket or even with a blanket (because those first sunny days are usually still pretty chilly), enjoying the light and the sounds of nature’s re-awakening. Yesterday the birdsong was joined by a funny, crunching noise – when I curiously looked around to figure out what it was, I saw a cute little brown mouse, sitting underneath a rose bush, happily nibbling away on a peanut. I wonder where he got that, maybe from a birdfeeder? Too cute – too bad I don’t come with a build-in camera so I could show you a picture, lol.
(We’ve had this mouse – or some ancestors- living in our garden for years, he (or they, lol) luckily never come into our house, even so our terrace door is often open – maybe they’re scared of our guinea pigs? ;D
All the Springtime songs and smells did inspire me to create a happy Spring collection:
There are some add-ons to go with the kit and even a little bonus if you pick up the complete collection:
And here’s some beautiful inspiration – a big “Thank you” to Pam and the girls from CT Hotspot for creating these! 😀
Right now – until March 27th, you can pick up the kit and add-ons for 30 % off, the complete collection plus bonus for 50 % off in my store at Digital Scrapbooking Studio.
Oh, and Café in Paris is retiring – save 75 % off until it’s gone forever on March 31st!

Have a great Spring with lots of happy memories to scrap!
Hey all – today I’m looking for a little bit of input and help from you all…. I’m having major photobook woes… We went on a dream-like, wonderful, awesome vacation last Fall – to Hawaii and California. Perfect Bliss.
And I still have all these thousands (literally, lol) beautiful pictures sitting on my hard drive and sooooo want to put them into a book to look at them when and where I want to. But … it’s still not done yet, and I have barely started on it, because of this terrible monster called “perfectionism” rearing it’s head everytime I work on it… and I’m torn about what to do:
- Use the photobook software from one of the printing companies and just do a picture book? The ones I’ve looked at so far don’t even offer the option to add a drop shadow to your pictures, BUT I’d have a book to look at out beautiful photos pretty fast.
- Or do my pages in PS with drop shadows but only a bare minimum of embellishments and a uniform background – not that fast, but prettier and I’d have the layered files in case I’ll ever decide to redo it?
- Or accept that it’s going to take me ages and ages (even using Manda’s power scrapping method) and have a perfect book in the end (whenever that may be)?
What do you do? Is there another option that’s “perfect” (there’s that word again, lol) and I haven’t considered? I’d love to hear about your thoughts and methods…
Here’s a little something for you, a journal card created with my new collection “Giraffe Kisses”– click on image to download and enjoy!
Giraffe Kisses is on sale for at least 50 % off until Sunday, Feb 21st at Digital Scrapbooking Studio – if you love giraffes, this is a unique and fun kit to have (the giraffes are drawn by myself, you won’t find them anywhere else)…
Have a wonderful day and, please, don’t forget to let me know your thoughts about photobooks in the comments!! 😀
PS – There’s a great QP freebie using Giraffe Kisses on Digital Scrapbooking Studio’s blog…. 😉
in case you’ve been wondering why I have been so quiet lately: I’ve been (and still am) battling some stupid virus for over 4 weeks now. Not very funny, but I am finally starting to feel better and hope this trend will continue. Yeah! 😀
Anyway, I wanted to give you a quick update and – most important- a heads-up: Today is the last day to pick up all the gorgeous Winters Frost Coordinated Collection products for 1 $ at the Studio store!!! So if there are still some you’ve been considering picking up, go get them today…
Here’s a look at my pieces and some of the gorgeous layouts the CT members have created with them. They’re fabulous (the ladies, as well, as the pages, lol):
… and if you’re subscribed to my newsletter, you can look forward to this QP freebie:
Have a great day!!!
Just a quick heads-up:
This is for today only – and here are the links, so you won’t have to search for them: Advent Calendar, PU Store, CU Store
Then there’s also the popular “3-2-1 CU Sale” going on (3 products for 2 $ each from 1 designer – although pretty much all CU designers are participating, not just one, lol) – check it out, there are a lot of great element packs on sale, that would be perfect for any stash, if you’re a designer or not.
Have a wonderful Sunday!

Woot – it’s time for theStudio’s annual Christmas Carol Blog Hop!!!! 😀
My chosen carol this year is “Frosty the snowman” – maybe because I’m cold almost all the time during Winter and my husband loves to tease me by calling me “Frosty” (according to him I somehow manage to get my hand, feet and nose below room temperature, lol).
I had a lot of fun drawing the different snowmen and creating a kit around them, although my hot beverage consumption did rise considerably while I was playing in the snow, even it it was only digital snow ;D. Hope you will like the result, there are 14 papers and 30 elements in the downloads, make sure you get both parts.
And those of you who get my Newsletter can look forward to a huge set of coordinating solid papers 😀
Here’s a peek at the kit (it will be available here until Jan 2nd) – the download links are below the preview. Enjoy – and have a very merry Christmas and a wonderful new year!!!
I’m sorry, the download links have expired, but you can find the kit here in my store at Digital Scrapbooking Studio.
