Skating in Circles by A Fish Design

I love this kit by A Fish Design.  I didn't think I was an orange paper person, but I really love this kit.  The blues and the oranges!  We don't skate, but this kit works for so many other things.  Here is a preview of this kit.  Click on the preview to go to her store.  And it's even on sale for $2.00, not sure how long the sale will last, so you may want to grab it now.

Here is a layout I did yesterday for my sketch class.  The sketch is by Amanda Bay.

Speed Scrap Alert! - Friday, Sept 28, 2012

I am totally addicted to speed scraps and I'm always on the look out for one!  Well, A Fish Design is hosting one tomorrow night (Friday) at Scraps N Pieces.  Check it out.

And look at the participating gift!  Wow, you can't beat that! (The flyer is linked to her store)

Scary Tales Vol 1 by True North Scraps

Well, I'm still on the fairy tale kick, so I bringing you another kit about fairy tales.  I love the colors on this kit, and the cute elements.  Here is what the kit is about.  Step-parents sometimes get a very bad reputation.  It's probably due to this particular evil step--mother and her girls.  They are always overshadowed by their famous and popular princess nemesis and are terribly jealous. How dare Cinderella take the limelight away!  Finally - Lady Tremaine, Anastasia and Drisella get the recognition they deserve! There's 41 highly detailed elements and 16 richly patterned papers.  Also included is a regal golden alpha of upper and lower case letters, numbers 0-9 and some punctuation.

Anyway, here is the preview.  If you click on it, it will take you to her store.

Here is a layout I did with this kit.  Once again it was for the sketch class at Feeling Scrappy.  This sketch is by Stacy Curry.

Fairy Tales and Myths - Karen Diamond Designs

I think as kids we all believed in fairy tales.  At least I did, and I guess I would say I still do.  Anyway, Karen Diamond Designs has a kit I just picked up this week that I love.  The kit is so pretty.  It has beautiful paper, and the elements are some of the most unique I've seen.  With the bundle you also get all kinds of different styles to use on your layouts.  Here is a preview.  You can pick it up in her store here.

Here are my layouts using this kit!

This one I did for my sketch class at Feeling Scrappy.  The sketch was by Jayne Jones.
