Freebie, New Release & A challenge

Click HERE to download.

Merry Christmas my lovely Scrapping Peeps! I hope you all take a little bit of time to enjoy the magic of this lovely time of year. I wanted to share a little scrapping with you to thank you all for a wonderful year! A few of my Polka Dot Plum friends are joining me with some other goodies or coupons for you, so stop by their blogs when you get a chance this week. Everything is gone after December 26th. This alpha coordinates with my final release of 2010, called Jingle Jangle. It is named after the two "elves" that visit my house each holiday season reporting back to santa about my kiddos behavior. A little mod, a little traditional, and a lot cute - take it home today for an unbelievable low price!

New Release & Huge Sale

The wait is finally over, my friends. Here is my latest kit, Bookish, dedicated to my lovely book club who has met for at least the last 10 years. I've read some amazing books and cultivated such amazing friendships with these ladies. This color palette is one of my favorites, and I always put in loads of general papers and elements so you can use it for all sorts of layouts. AND, if that wasn't enough, I'm also having a 50% off sale for the rest of week until after Cyber Monday since I wasn't around for iDSD. I won't have another sale like this until summer, so grab the yumminess now! For all my American friends, have a relaxing and fun-filled Turkey Day.

Sweet Tomato's back in business!!!

My lovely, loyal Mater fans, I'm so glad to see you again. It's been over a month without my internet and 3 months since I've released anything new, but it's been a wonderful whirlwind since August. We've moved into our beautiful house and I'd consider ourselves unpacked as long as nobody peeks into our garage, my beautiful daughter had surgery to help her hearing and speech issues, and we're gearing up for our best holiday season EVER. And, so now that I've finally got my internet hooked up (boy, is that a story) and my scanner and tablet hooked up and ready to go, I've started my next new release and I've got to tell you, the colors are amazing. I also missed the opportunity to advertise or participate in iDSD, so stay tuned for some special things I've got up my sleeve. I'm also changing up my Creative Team a bit, and will be doing my first open call in over a year soon. I hope this finds you all happy and healthy!

Designer Call

Life is getting hectic for the Sweet Tomato right now, as our new house closes next week and we begin the "great migration" over to it. As a result, I'm taking some time off to get us all settled, but never fear, I have a notebook full of ideas to work on once I'm back sometime in November. Until then, I've got a few things up my sleeve...stay tuned for details...

Right now, Polka Dot Plum is having a Designer Call and for those designers among you, you won't find better owners than Lauren and Amy. It's a quirky, enthusiastic place to be and I'd love to work with you.

A Sweet Sneaky Peek

I'm working hard on getting our family ready to move next month and getting this house ready for the new renters, but I did have time to squeak out one last mini kit for my favorite scrappers. Here's a little tease, any guesses on which summer dessert I passed my kit on? The first person to comment with the correct answer today will win it for FREE. ;) I'll be back later on this fall with new items, so keep checking back for all kinds of scrapiness.

Busy Little Bee

Hi, my scrappy friends! We have had one of the busiest months of my life thus far, trying to get our current place ready to rent (which we now have renters in place) and packing and looking forward to our new place. I went by today and fixtures and appliances are going in, and I'm still in awe that I'm going to own such a beautiful place in a matter of weeks now. I feel so lucky. Several of my friends expressed interest in seeing pics, so here are a few I took today. I think I may need a new house kit coming up soon, eh?

Talking about new kits, I do have a new one in the works, look for my newest creation next week! It's based on my favorite summer dessert, any guesses which one it is?

Hi, my lovely scrapping peeps. We're in the midst of a hot, dry summer here on the US east coast and I'm loving every minute of it (well, most of them anyway). I've been able to do some more reading, and am currently loving Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert and have been fantasizing where I would spend a year if I was trying to find myself. Definitely Europe somewhere, some exotic friendly island and an amazing metropolitan city would make my list. What about you?

I've gotten some design mojo back and have finally created a kit based on my son's bedroom colors, and I'm really digging the combination. I've also created a bundle if you have a little guy and gal like me, you can get the Finley and Nolan kits bundled together for a BIG discount!


Sibling Rivalry Bundle

And if you need a starting point, grab my fun new Twofers template Set 1, also out today.

Remember all of these are 20% off Wednesday the 21st ONLY.
