Lots and Lots Going On!

Hi Everyone, Vivie and I have been pretty busy the past few weeks and wanted to share a couple of things with you.
We have worked on two wonderful charity collabs last month. Both causes are dear to our hearts and the collabs turned out amazing!


On January 30, 2009 2 year old Tuesday unfortunately lost her battle against cancer. Many of us designers have participated in this wonderful collab to help in the fight against this awful disease. Learn more about the Tuesday Fiona Whitt Memorial Fund here and more info on this great collab here .

Here is a preview of it ;). Thanks in advance to all of you who has and will help ;)

Secondly we collaborated on kit for Mellisa - AKA Fairytale Studios a fellow designer at Digital Candy. The kit was created for her after her car accident in January to help cover medical expenses & lost wages.

The kit is huge and so fun. Go check it out at Digital Candy.


And finally we are excited to announce a big photo contest at the Artisan Notebook magazine! ViVa has donated an awsome prize for one of the winners. The contest runs from March 1-31, 2009, and winner's will be announced in the May issue and on the Notebook Notes blog. Come on, submit your best photos for a chance to win great prizes! Here's the 411 on the Official Rules.

New Kit, New Freebie and Some Talk!

Yay!!! We finally finished our new kit. Let me tell you that this was a lot of fun to create but it took as soooo long. All started when Vivie and I were talking movies and Mr. Magorium Wonder Emporium was mentioned... I said to Vivie, "how cool would that be as a kit" and she said alright let's do it LOL. We were just drawn to the colors, the imagination idea and all those great toys. We thought about our girls of course and that's how the whole sibling idea came up. Why not right?!

So there you have a kit filled to the brim with fun and magic! It's a store chock full of unique toys and trinkets perfect for your little boy(s) and/or girl(s). The collection includes photo masks, word art, alpha and tons of toys. It is HUGE. So much so that it lent itself to 2 mini-kits one for brothers and one for sisters.



Hope you enjoy it!

available both at Sunshine Studio Scraps and Get Digi With It

And of course no new kit can come without a little something for all of you. So here you go. A little "wet" add-on to Sibling Joy from us! HUGS!!!

LO from my template!

First of all, just to let you know, our earliest freebies will be disabled end of this week to make room for more!!! So, if you haven't got it, go get it now!!!


Ok. so I ended up with a lousy Valentine's except for breakfast in bed. My DD2 made me croissant, juice, coffee and flower (she made with paper and glitter!!!). The only trouble was that she put what she thought was jam in my croissant and it turned out much to my surprise, my spicy apricot chutney!!! LOVELY!!! Tasted quite interesting! And, not because of breakfast, but I ended up feeling sick all day. Probably all the colds/flus around me catching me up. So, I didn't end up eating much all day and we were supposed to go out to dinner with the girls but typical us, we didn't make reservations. We are kinda, fly by the seat of our pants kinda people...and so we ended up driving to 4 restaurants that were booked all night long! We ended up at Subway, which was totally empty!!! And had sandwiches (I didn't!) for Valentines. The girls were VERY happy! The alternative for them was, I had selected Greek or some Meditaranean restaurant and they didn't like that!

Remember the templates I had given away? They looked like this:


and it came from this layout I did for Christina Renee:



and I tested the template with this:





and look what came in my mail!!! Nora used the template for this:

How cool is this!!! I love Nora's element choices! Thanks Nora!

Speed Scrap and Layouts!!!

HI!!! Just a short note to say that Vanessa is hosting another speed scrap at Sunshine Studios this Thursday, Feb 12, at 9:00 pm (EST). Speed scrap is when you get one hour to do a page, based on instructions given by the house, one every 10 minutes or so. You get another hour to finish it up and post it and get a prize! Last time, it was a fun time. You can check the post out in the Sunshine Forum and even use the instructions to do an LO for yourself...take a look at her sample:




And here's what the participants did:

Are they all not so amazing? I even did one, although I can't quite make it to the speed scraps. Since they are at 9 in the evening EST, I'm in Europe +1GMT which makes it at 3 in the morning and I can't quite stay up that late or quite get up that early, LOL!!! But I did one, after the fact, cause I love how Vanessa's layouts look and wanted one for myself!!!


by Vivienne


So get ready for another one, Thursday at 9pm (EST) and look at what you get for participating!!!




And have you got all your Valentine's stuff done? If not, take a look at our hybrid print and cut/assemble kits.








They are both based on our Romeo & Juliet kit.




Don't forget to put Steel Love in your basket, cause it's free when you buy the complete kit, only thru Valentine's Day!!!

Matchbook Valentine hybrid kit and our NEW CT!!!

Here's a quick and easy craft for you for your favorite Valentine....it's a Matchbook Valentine. We've put it together for you and it's available at GetDigiWithIt.





All you have to do is select one of two covers, one comes with a frame you can put a photo into. Print, score and fold the cover. Print the inserts (there are two sets, one with love phrases and the other blank for your own phrases), trim and insert into cover, staple and give it away!!! Simple and easy. Here are photos of the real thing:





I think I'm giving mine to my DH, LOL!!! We're getting into the hybrid thing...it's so much fun, coming from an old paper scrapper!!! I love that the possibilities are endless...I can print up as much paper as I want and the supply is constant. I love that it's so exact. I can print what I want in the size I need and as many as I want.


And, of course, we are so terribly excited to introduce our new CT. They are just fabulous already pumping out those fantastic LOs. Here they are:






Have a fab day!
