I received a wonderful little nugget in the mail today...Tina got me hooked on these little gems at the last crop, and I'm completely obsessed. These tiny pictures remind me of slides--and I love that they've inspired me to do fun and funky things with them. This pack contains my favorite summer photos. I elected to choose 100 different pictures when I made my purchase, but you could just as easily select one photo and have 100 copies! These babies may be on my Christmas cards this year...

And one of the best parts? You can write your own little message and add an icon on the back!! The possibilities are endless...

You can play too! Check them out at

Thanks, Tina! You enabler, you! :)

It's official...

WIP has a Design Team!! I am so glad that I get to be part of this, with such talented scrappers. We're gonna have some fun!!

I know the gallery will be full of inspiration for you all.

I hope you were one of the lucky ones who preordered her September kit. They have sold out and it's not even September yet!!

You are in for a treat, for sure. Jamie Waters' work with the kit is amazing. Stay tuned :)

A little inspiration...

to start off the week!!! Lately, I have been acutely aware of all the inspiration waiting to be taken in around me. I'm not sure why, but I sure am glad! Everywhere I go lately, things have been popping out at me. Cool color schemes, ideas for titles, you name it! My mail, the Pottery Barn Kids be exact, kick-started my thought process this week....take a peek at this photo...namely the polka-dot pillow sham. I see buttons, die-cut circles, stamped circles, painted circles, all framing my photo...the possibilities are endless!!! What do you see? Whatever that might be, I hope it helps to kickstart your week with a little creativity.

Less than 24 hours left...

Until the big Design team reveal. Stay tuned!!!

One Awesome Mini book...

These photos are of a mini book that my friend and fellow scrapper, Tina Zarlenga, made. She used the August Work in Progress kit and the add-on to create this little gem, and I wanted to share it with all of you!

I love Tina's attention to detail in everything she does. If you'd like to see the photos in more detail, here is the link:

And be sure to let me know if you'd like to share as well!

Have a great night!

Have a great weekend!

Take the Challenge!

So in the last newsletter, I set out a few challenges. Here are two of the lovely layouts that were forwarded to me:Phyllis Merrill accepted the challenge on doing a page on your age. Phyllis has been a member of the kit club since its inception--and she used scraps from every kit to pull together this scrappy layout to mimic a quilt. Don't worry Phyllis--I'll never tell... :)

Janelle Richmond also accepted the same challenge. I've been a fan of hers on 2Peas for a while, and I love how she mixes papers to make them stand out. Totally inspires me to dig in and scrap...

Thanks for sharing gals! Anyone else up for the challenge?
