New Crop of Maters and Saturday Singles

Introducing the new crop of Sweet Tomato Scrappers! These girls made it through some brutal cuts, some of the people I didn't take were just amazing scrappers. It broke my heart not to take them, and I had to hand out twice as many I'm sorry emails as I did Join us ones as it was! A 30 person team would have been a bit much. But a giant THANK YOU to all the talent that applied, I am a blessed designer to have that much interest in my designs.

I'm getting some fun stuff ready for a special announcement I have coming up. I'm working very hard behind the scenes to make some exciting things happen this year for Sweet Tomato!

Seedlings Templates - Set 3

I love buying templates where the hard part has been done for me, all I have to do is add pictures, papers and ellies. This new set is PERFECT for that, I did all the cutting and measuring for you. I really wanted to create a pie layout for myself, and voila' a template set was born. I've also added some great journaling shapes as well to give your pages just that more interest!

What do you do?

What do you do when your Scrapbook Pages To DO list becomes overwhelming? I found myself with that same question over the holidays and was so frustrated because of all the deadlines and business things I had to complete. See, as I take pictures, or hear my kids say cute things, I write down on a list what I want to scrap about. Does anyone else do that? Well, my list was threatening to take on a 2nd page soon. So one afternoon over the break instead of cleaning the bathrooms I told myself it was OK to do something I WANTED to do for an hour. With the help of some templates and some of my favorite Flergs and Microferk kits, I created 4 layouts just like that. I felt instantly energized, went back to those darned bathrooms and went back to photoshop to design without feeling frustrated. I learned that you must give yourself permission to take time out to do what you love, otherwise you just face eventual burn-out. Do you want to know what I'm doing tomorrow during naptime? NOT making the CT ads I need to, I'm going to do some more layouts!!!! (well, THEN I'll do the ads, but the scrapping comes first tomorrow). Here's some of my yumminess I made, what do you think?
