Retiring me and retiring kits!

http://www.mischiefcircus.com/shop/manufacturers.php?manufacturerid=29&sort=&sort_direction=&show=all

Artist Friends .. . BIG news!
Stayed tuned for more details coming in the next day or so.
It's a little scary for me to make such a big change, but in order to better address the needs of my family & household, I am retiring as a kit designer.

I will continue on as Tumble Fish Studio in new ways . . . maybe a few collage sheets on Etsy, and some freebie images & challenges on my blog, and some new endeavors as I get things worked out. I yearn to just make art to make art. But, my time as a kit designer is coming to a bittersweet end. 

I will miss it dearly but I will forever be a loyal fan and customer and friend of Mischief Circus. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart to Hollie for everything she's done for me and all she's taught me. Thank you to the most amazing Creative Team people EVER! Thank you, too, from the bottom of my heart for being the most wonderful supportive friends and customers I could have ever imagined. I am indebted to you all! 

The retirement sale starts Thursday August 25.

New exciting things (challenges, free images, and more) coming right here to this blog soon.  Please come back for another visit!

Pish Posh!

I just released 2 new image kits last night. (more details below) I have one other kit coming out the end of the month and then I am taking a few weeks off from designing kits. I'm going to get caught up on some things at home and all online fronts and take some time to play and refill my inspiration tanks. Just a few weeks off, so don't forget about me! 

For now, I have the Pish Posh kits for you! They are on sale for a limited time! You can find the 2 new kits (Pish Posh and Pish Posh Add On) HERE

Last Call!

Hello everyone!


Today is the last day to save up to 40% on many image/collage kits in my Tumble Fish Studio shop at MischiefCircus.com.  This sale only comes around 2 times a years so it's a good time to stock up.


http://www.mischiefcircus.com/shop/manufacturers.php?manufacturerid=29&sort=&sort_direction=&show=all


You still have one more day to play in all of the games and challenges section of the Mischief Circus forum too!  

Lucky winners will be randomly drawn to win prizes!  You can find all of the fun HERE .

Did you know Mischief Circus has it's own Facebook group?  

It's a closed group where we mingle and goof off and where people share work using MC kits and ask questions and share ideas!  Anyone is welcome to join us!  You can find our group HERE.


In addition, I am going to be retiring lots of older kits.  

I've just changed styles, learned how to do things better, and may have a different monitor than I did when I made some of the older kits.  Some see so dark to me.  Anyway, it's time to clean out and make room for newer kits.  Some of the images in these older kits will be redone and added to new kits (with new images too), but some of these will be gone forever.  I'll be cleaning out about 6-8 kits a week for a few weeks.   If you decide to grab any of these, please download and back up your files immediately as once these kits are gone, they are gone for good.   And stay tuned for the next set of kits to retire!

These kits will be available at the last sale price through May 15 and then gone! (they are linked to the "Last Call: going going gone" section of our shop)

World's Greatest . . .

ZEROOOOOOO!   When I was a kid, my dad would raise my arm up in the air and say in his announcer voice, "Ladies and Gentleman!  I'd like you to meet THE. WORLD'S. GREATEST. ZEROOOOOOO!"   When I used to tell my kids this story, they would say something like "ahhhh, mom.  That's so mean.  Why would he do that?" etc.  It never once dawned on me when I was a kid that it could have any meaning other than I was something special and wonderful and he made me giggle.  Now that my kids have raised the question, I've wondered about it . . . what the meaning was for him, etc.    My dad was not big on bragging or showing off . . . very humble and preached humility . . . . could have been another way to do that.  He could've just wanted to make me laugh.   I don't know.

Anyway, I may in fact be the World's Greatest Zero, but I had fun with the newest collaboration among the designers of MischiefCircus.com.  We each put together a kit with the theme of  the World's Greatest.   I left mine rather open ended with lots of blank prize medals and trophies and sashes.  (everything below is in one kit)

Now, not only is there a GREAT collaboration happening, but it's also International Scrapbooking Day week at MC and so, as we do twice a year, we're hosting a GREAT sale!   You can most of my kits 40% off in my shoppe HERE.  (newer releases are 20% off)

And to top it all off, MC is giving away $400 worth of prizes away in our games and challenges forum!

Cut apArt sheets!

I felt like splashing a bunch of color around so here is my first set of  Cut apART (get it?) sheets! Print them and cut out strips, shapes, and borders for collage work.  Or use them as they are for journaling or stationery backgrounds.  I included two solid sheets that you can use on top of the patterned papers, too.  Digitally, there is all kinds of fun to be had!  Clip the papers to the shapes png sheet and you have lots of useful bits.  But my favorite thing to do?   In your digital program, lay these sheets on top of one another and play with the layer styles to create entirely new magic!!!

http://www.mischiefcircus.com/shop/product.php?productid=23613&cat=&page=

This preview shows the smaller sized versions on printable jpg collage sheets.   The gray shape sheet comes in printable jpg format and png format to make it easier to use digitally.

Starlight is still on sale because honestly, it is my favorite kit (that I made) ever if I do say so myself. You can find it in my shoppe here along with my new Cut apART sheets kit . . . my shoppe is here:  http://www.mischiefcircus.com/shop/manufacturers.php?manufacturerid=29

Exciting news is coming later this month so keep checking back!

Mar 14, 2016

Catching up!

I have fallen a bit behind on my blog . . . it used to be such a busy place with almost daily posts and the last couple of years I'm lucky if I get here once a month to post.  I don't really know what keeps me from posting more and I find myself unsure of what to do with things here.   I keep thinking I'm going to take a couple of days off and visit all of the beautiful blogs I used to visit every week.  I've been wondering how the blog world has changed over the years . . . FB and Instagram and Pinterest have changed things I'm sure.  But there is something lovely about following someone's posts in the order they intended, in the way their own personal stories unfold.  I miss that.

Well, I have 2 new image kits to share . . . one has been out for a few weeks and one just released last night.  I'm slowing down just a wee bit with kits to pursue some new avenues in creating . . . not sure where I'll end up with any of them but the research has brought new ideas, however subtle, into my kit making too.  Everything's an influence I suppose.

Last night I released my Delightful kit . . . it's on sale for a limited time.  It's got over 140 individual png and jpg files AND 10 printable jpg collage sheets.  It's got 18 papers in 2 sizes and some gorgeous images my friend Jo Anne shared with me.  Oh!  And if you go to the shoppe listing (linked to the pictures below), you can see some A M A Z I N G samples from my Creative Team.  They really knocked this one out of the park.

Before the Delightful kit, I released Another Mash Up kit . . . I had so much fun creating the first Melange Mash Up kit, I had to try another one.
