>> January 29, 2010

First of all… thanks for all the wonderful messages you guys left for the template i made. Its so sweet of you all. And i guess i can confidently make some more.. Look out for one in the beginning of next week.

Yari of Jadyday Studio has a new kit this week…its called ‘Winter in Hooville’. Its an absolutely adorable and subtle winter themed kit. And i’m sure you guys would love it !!


Amber from Stolen Moments has a new set of templates in the stores. Its called ‘Paper Punches V.1’. And believe me, these templates along with their punched out scraps, will definitely broaden your scrapping comfort zones. It certainly did mine. And they are a great addition to your scrapping tools.


 Rachel from Captivated Visions has a super elegant kit in the stores.. Its called ‘Travelogue’ and of course.. its a travel themed kit. But this one is for the more mature and elegant scrapper. Its got lots of journaling notes and lots of beautiful papers. Also it is very useful for scrapping about one self too…


Also there are lots of other coordinating goodies for this kit. check them all out. And the Value Bundle too.



Suzy of SuzyQ Scraps has a couple new products too. One of them is a kit called ‘Dino-RAWR 2’. Adorable dinos in this one !! I have no LOs for this… but i will soon… Here is the preview of the kit.

And the second product  in the stores in ‘Stitch Hiccups #3’.

Happy shopping !!
