I'm back...almost!

Well, what a few months this has been!
Since April, I've had to help more and more with caring for a relative who has 'special needs'. It came to a head in September when she had to have an operation for Cancer. I had to concentrate on getting her through that and so had to leave my designing behind for a while.

But with the start of Advent at the weekend, and knowing that some people, like me, keep a Christmas Journal of some kind, detailing the build up to Christmas and then their celebrations, it seemed like a good time to create some packs of papers, journal blocks and date tags to help with that!

I know I'm always pushed for time throughout December and creating a page a day can be difficult. When you factor in choosing from all the stash most of us possess, LOL, it can add on a lot of time! So I thought I would create these packs, in three different colour ways, to help out!

Of course I also have some other Christmas papers in my Etsy store, as well as templates, which can be a real help on days when time really is of the essence!

I'll be uploading the new items to my Etsy store shortly, but for now, here's a preview of what will be available!

Christmas Cheer:

Christmas Chill:

Merry Christmas:

Even without much embellishment (back to that lack of time thing again!) the pages look great!
If you'd like to have a look at my templates and everything else in my store, 

And now, for reading this far, you get a reward, LOL!
A FREEBIE mini pack of papers, journal blocks and date tags!
Called My Christmas since these are the colours I have in my house for Christmas!
Here's what you get:

10 Papers

5 Journal Blocks

Set of 31 Numbered Tree Date Tags

My page with this FREEBIE! 

And now the important download links!

Either grab them here:

Enjoy! And happy scrapping!

New kit in my Etsy Store! Summer Breeze is HERE!

Here it is! My latest kit, Summer Breeze is in my Etsy Store NOW!
You can find it HERE!

Summer Breeze - the perfect kit for scrapping those summer holiday photos! As the very very warm weather dissolves into cooler and perhaps slightly greyer days, there is still lots of fun to be had!

This kit is wonderful for showing off your summer photos...and would be great for Autumn as well for that matter! The papers are wonderfully textured and the elements can be used in so many ways to build up your creative, artistic and traditional pages! Great for art journaling too!

For some of the LOs shown I used my Marguerite Templates which can be found in my store HERE!

This kit contains 20 papers (patterns and plains) and 57 elements!

I hope you love this kit as much as I do!
Happy Scrapping!

A Little brag!!

I received my complementary copy of Somerset Digital Studio today (have a nosey here if you haven't heard of it! and thanks to the lovely ladies of ViVa Artistry I have a LO published in there!

I wish I could afford this mag on a subscription as it is absolutely inspirational and full of such beautiful artwork! It's a real honour to have my page included in there, along with my details!!

So, now I'm an internationally published artist, LOL!!!!

Congrats to Cynthia Taylor and Elysah Hagenaars as well - they too have beautiful LOs

Come and say hello to my NEW Etsy Store!

The Boomerang Store Designers are in the process of repackaging their wares 
and moving them across to Etsy!

I've made a start and have today opened my store! More stock will be added once it is repackaged 
(file sizes have to be much smaller there!). HERE is my Store!

I have a NEW set of templates though! Named Marguerite, they are great for those of you who love multi-photo pages with a little journaling too! You can find the templates HERE!

Below is the preview of the set as well as some pages I made with these new templates. 
I used supplies from my upcoming new kit, Summer Breeze! A little bit of a sneaky peek for you then, LOL!

Please check back to my Etsy Store in the coming days and weeks as more stock is uploaded there!
Happy Scrapping!
