Happy New Year!!!

Hello! Happy 2007!
I know it really isn't 2007 yet, but I wanted to wish you a Happy New Year!

I have a new FREEBIE for you! I was trying to re-create the look of some papers I had seen, but I DID NOT COME CLOSE - LOL! I wanted a blended, tie-dye, grunge kind of look, and I wound up somewhere else. I have also been watching too many MGM musicals due to my ongoing illness (yes, I am STILL sick!), so that's where the Bali Hai/tropical look comes in. If you have ever seen South Pacific, you'll get what I mean. But, I added a 2007 for your New Year's pages - LOL.

Thank you for your interest, but this freebie has been retired.
Please do not share the direct link or the files in any way. Just send your friends on over to the blog, please!

My blog coupon is still in effect for a few more days, so scroll down to find the discount coupon code for all the items I have for sale at Deco-Pages. You can save 20% OFF everything! But, it is for a limited time.

I have some new kits that will be in the store soon. We are moving to a new server and a new cart program at Deco-Pages, so I am going to wait until that is all in place before I put the new items up for sale. But, here is a sneak peek:

I am also working on a few kits that I hope to finish early next month.
And, just a reminder, the new Club Deco Kit, Pop Heart, is coming out tomorrow! Here is my contribution:

You can grab this kit and 11 additional MEGA kits (one a month) for a year's membership: just $30. It is a great deal just for the monthly kits alone. But, you also get lots of free goodies from out designers, free monthly challenge kits and much more! You can sign up at

Happy New Year!

MMMMMM! Cookies!

No, not real cookies. Although if they ever figure out how to do that, I'll be sure and send some to you all! Here are some cookies you can use in your scrapping. I have three sets of holiday cookie alphas. The red set is a Rambling Rose blog exclusive...only for my readers!
Thank you for your interest, but this freebie has been retired.
The set contains capital letters, numerals and some symbols all in individual files.

Please share some love and don't redistribute the files. Just send all your friends here to get it.

The green set is a freebie at You have to be registered and logged in to see it, but registering is free and painless. Plus, there are so many freebies there it is worth it! You can find it HERE.

The chip set is available only to Club Deco members...if you haven't joined, now is a great time to do so.
Every month you get a MEGA kit that is sooooooo fabulous, plus lots of freebie goodies like this alpha and other great stuff...all for a very low annual membership price. If you haven't picked out a gift for yourself yet, this should be it! Also, friends and family will appreciate this gift because it gives for 12 whole months. It averages out to about $2.50 a can't buy one regular-sized kit for that much, and these monthly kits are HUGE!
Okay enough persuasion tactics...LOL!

I hope you and yours have a fabulous holiday season!

I have finally found a few minutes to put up the full-size preview of Cozy Comfort for you. It looks kinda teeny in that sale graphic, doesn't it? I really like the palette of this kit - even though I am not a big fan of green. It has wonderful corduroy and felt textures (thanks to Tandika Star and Atomic Cupcake). There are lots of fun elements like mugs and a mitten!

Remember, you can get Cozy Comfort for FREE if you have one purchase of RoseMadeDesigns kits total $10.00 or more...and Frosty Fun is FREE if you purchase $25.00 worth of digital kits in the Deco-Pages store (by any designer).

But like Santa, this sale is done on December 24th. So, be sure to get in on this great deal before Christmas.

I've been battling a cold for about a week. I woke up this morning with the most delicious headache (yes, I'm trying a positive spin - LOL). So, I'm off to get thecoffee going and eat something and take some medicine, so I can function at work today. I have already taken two days off, and I really can't miss any more this close to the Winter Break.

Friday Freebie and More!

Good morning!
I have some kit news and a freebie for you today. First the kit news. Here are some previews:

I know what you're thinking! Three colors - how will I choose??? You don't have to! All of this is in my newest kit, Frosty Fun! That's right -- over 170 MB of winter scrapping fun! Now here's the knew there had to be one, right? Actually it's not a bad thing - it's a SALE!!!!
I will be having an Over the Hill Sale in a week or so to celebrate my DH's 40th. This kit will not be for sale until the day of the event, but it will also be a gift-with-purchase option. You'll have to check back in a few days for all the details, but it will be great!!!!
I also have another kit, Cozy Comfort, that you can get for free during the sale, too. But, sorry no preview just yet...hopefully sometime this weekend.

Okay, I guess I can post the Freebie now...geez, I bet you scrolled down past all the neat kit stuff just to get to the Freebie, didn't ya???? LOL! That's okay! I love you anyway!
These lightbulbs come from a kit idea I have had on the back burner for a few months. I will eventually finish it. It's is for all you Science Fair/Spelling Bee/Art Gallery/Talent Show moms, dads and grandparents. Bright Idea will help you show off all your kids and grandkids on their special days proving just how great they are! Now, if I could just get a Bright Idea and some time to finish the kit - LOL!

Thank you for your interest, but this freebie has been retired.

Okay, I've Been Busy!!!!

I'm sorry you haven't had a freebie in a few days. I hope you are enjoying the ones still posted. I'll take them down soon, though, so get 'em while they're hot - LOL. This is why I haven't posted a new freebie. My newest kits have taken over my life!!!



Please let me know what you think! Would like more kits like this? I think these kits are really close to a "style" that is what I'm working toward...but I'm not quite there yet.

Have a great day!
