Freebie on Friday and Scrap Saturday

Once again, I am late with posting...but yesterday was my older daughter's birthday! And, I'm still on vacation - LOL!

But here is your Friday treat (on Saturday!). This is part 4 of Babette.
You'll get 3 papers, 2 bows, and some more buttons.

Please leave some love - vote in my polls over on the right there! Please remember to link to my blog HOME page only when sharing and do not redistribute the files or download link in any way. Thanks!

Thanks for your interest, but this freebie has been moved to the store.

If you missed Part 1 of Babette it is now listed in the Links section of my Yahoo group:

CLICK HERE to join

Parts 1-4 of Babette will be up at least until my vacation is over...maybe a day or two after that, so if you know of anyone who might like, send them here. Links for Parts 2 and 3 are in previous posts.

For my Yahoo group members, I have Part 4 of Betsy this week. This contains 2 bows, 2 satin ribbons and 2 papers. The link is listed in the link section of my Yahoo group (see join link above) - and I still have listed the links for Parts 1, 2 and 3 also.

We are heading back to Germany next week, so I'll probably leave these links up until I can catch up with laundry and unpacking...but then...look out!

This freebie has been moved to the store.

Also, I am doing a Blog Reader's kit, so please vote in the polls I post. I will also have some colors for you to look at soon (depending on what kind of kit I'll be making).

Have a great weekend!

Vacation is half over. I am suffering severe Photoshop withdrawal! I have had so many good ideas, but of course, I can't do anything with them. I've been trying to write them down!
I want to do a blog I am going to do a poll. You'll find it to the right...

I want to know what kind of kit you would like to see me attempt. We will start with a theme and work our way through colors and will help me make it, all participants will get a coupon and random posters will get the kit free!

That reminds me...the lovely ladies that won the Suntripe kit have not contacted me yet. So, if anyone knows Linda G. and Becki...please let them know to email for their coupon to get Sunstripe for FREE!

New Kits at Digiscrap Boutique!

I have just added 5 new kits and 2 commercial use items to my Digiscrap Boutique store!

Pansy AddOn is a great mini kit that coordinates with the full Pansy kit. It has great colors, feminine elements and lovely textured papers.

Vintage Meadow 2 extends my Vintage Meadow kit with more elements and papers with a fun twist - dots and stripes, sanded wood and fabric!

Misty is full of fun colors! This is definitely a girly-girl kit...lots of flowers, dots, stickers and bows will make loads of cool layouts!

And, it's never too early to start thinking about those holiday tags, photo cards and invitations...or maybe you are a little behind on last year's scrapping? I have two kits that are perfect for all of that and more!

Cracker is named for the fun holiday party favors that snap open to reveal prizes.
This mini kit would be great for gift tags or photo cards, in addition to layouts.

And, Sugarplums reminds me of all those holiday goodies at Grandma's house.
Aren't those gingerbread cookies cute????

The last two items are for personal or commercial use.

First, I have a lovely set of silver and gold Heart Charms - 22 in all. I am really proud of these, and I hope they will be the perfect accent for your feminine and heritage pages.

Then, you need something to hang all those charms...and tags, tassels and everything else!

I have a set of brads, coils, chains and jump rings for personal or commercial use, too.
These Charms Accessories will come in handy for just about any kit.

Sunstripe Winners!

I need Linda G. and Becki to contact me at

rose dot made dot designs at gmail dot com

so I can send your Sunstripe coupon!


New Kits for Summer

I have two kits coming out soon that I think will be great additions to your collection, especially now that it is summer. I know you have lots of picnics, beach trips and amusement park vacations you want to scrap.

Blue Hawaii would be a great kit for any photos of beaches, lakes, or river rafting. I think the shades of blue and white make this a very calming kit.And, Summer Blush is so light and fruity! I'm sure you'll love the softly worn textures of the papers that have both modern and traditional patterns. There's a fun mix of elements, too - bows, ricrac, frames, tags and more.

Both of these kits will be in my DigibyDesign store very soon!

Holiday Kit Take 2

I've been at it again! I have another holiday kit that will be available very soon! It's a mini kit with 6 background papers, 5 trims, stitching and 5 elements.
