Long break, Back Soon!

Helllloooooo my lovely friends!   I've been busy getting dirty.   LOL   We have dug up our entire front yard to put in a new xeriscape and one thing led to another.  We practically dug to China I think to put in a new retaining wall where there used to be a slope to the street.  We put in 2 new pea gravel walkways and in the process of building steps at the bottom of one.  We took out a tree and have had to dig out numerous humungous old roots from trees we haven't had for years.  One of those roots, we discovered, was pushing up some drainage and sewer pipes so we are in the midst of fixing that.  We also built a deck to extend the front porch.  We won't plant anything until it gets cooler (maybe October), but we have to finish this project up by next week before painters come to repaint the house trim and after that re-stucco the house.

So, I've not been "working" much on kits this summer.  But, that will change soon.  In fact, I have a new kit coming out September 1 to celebrate a HUGE something special happening at DeviantScrap.com.   The DeviantScrap.com site will be closed August 30 and 31 to prepare for our special event . . . .   Consider yourself invited!!!!


More news to come but keep an eye out here for more information!  And, I've done a lot of image shopping over the summer and look forward to bringing new kits and lots of fun to you this fall!

Misfit Dollhouse and FREE image

How'd we get half way through July already?  Well, I don't suppose I mind as summer is my least favorite season . . . I'm ready for cool weather, jeans, and I HOPE some rain in So Cal this fall.  We're about to dry up and blow away here.

While I'm waiting for cool weather, it's at least a consolation to get to show you the COOLEST and best collaboration I think Deviant Scrap has ever put out.  All of the designers teamed up to put together our latest CYOC (Collect Your Own Collaboration) kits and the theme was Misfit Dollhouse.  

Anyone who knows me, knows I have long been obsessed with little houses so this theme was one I thoroughly enjoyed playing with, though I feel I barely scratched the surface of ideas and materials I have collected over the years.  Even though I got 2 full kits done for this CYOC, more than likely, you will see several more kits from me with this same theme.  I hope you enjoy playing with it too.

Before I show you the kits, I want to shout out some special thank-yous . . . 
First, my friend and wonderful customer Sandria lent me many beautiful papers to scan and use in my first of the 2 dollhouse kits.  Her grandfather owned a wall paper business and she generously shipped me dozens of gorgeous papers I used in Misfit Dollhouse 1.  I am so grateful for her gift of allowing me to digitize these images for all of us to use.

Secondly, I need to thank my whole Creative Team and my 3 special guest Creative Team members for the spectacular and glorious samples they made on somewhat short notice, despite the confusion I kept throwing at them with 2 kits going out at once.   I'll be sharing some of their work with you this week, right here on this blog.

Now, don't just skip through the rest of this post as there is some IMPORTANT information regarding free images below the previews.  The previews below are linked to the shoppe listings.

June Bug Wings . . .

Posting and running . . . didn't want to forget these.

Before we went to dinner last night, there was a lovely striped June bug resting on our back porch.  I had never seen one before.  When we returned, all that was left was its wings . . . a June bug homicide had been committed and mystery left behind.  A bird or lizard or the possum we sometimes see in the evening, had had a snack and left me the pretty wings . . . maybe to share with you.

Use however you wish . . .  they were a gift to me.

New kit, retiring kits, and free image!

Hello everyone!

I was going to do a drawing this week, but life has interfered and I haven't had a chance to get one organized.  I'm so sorry about that.   I do have a consolation free image for you at the bottom of this post.

New kit - Posers
I have a new kit done and on sale for a limited time.  Posers is just a funky kit I put together with ATC and Postcard making in mind.  It's a rather large kit with lots of stuff packed in.  As usual, printable jpg collage sheets are included in the kit.  The preview below is linked to my shoppe at DeviantScrap.com.

Retiring kits
I'm starting to clean out old kits again.  As I keep practicing this kit making thing, some older kits start to not look so great to me and so if I have newer better bigger version, I've decided to let go of some.  The kits below will be retiring July 3rd - they won't be there after that - so if you decide to purchase any, please download immediately and back up your files as they will not be available to download again.  The kits below are all on sale and the previews are linked to my shoppe.

BIG Little Background Sale & 2 FREE images!

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

I'm having a big fat sale on some background kits . . . you can save up to 60%!  All of my Journal Card kits are just $2 each.
I didn't bundle them so you could pick and choose but if you bought all 10 of the Journal Card kits, you'd get 180 pre-made backgrounds in both individual files AND arranged on printable jpg collage sheets for $20.  That's about 11 cents a background.  Layer them and play with layer styles to quickly create endless possibilities for backgrounds.  Print them out and have a great base for mixed media work - paint, rubber stamping, ink, etc.   It's always easier to NOT face a blank page when you're starting new work . . . bind them together and you have an instant journal waiting for you to bring it alive with your own collage and hand lettering.

The preview above is linked to my shoppe . . . scroll through to find all of the Journal Card kits on sale.   This promotion ends July 6 so don't wait to stock up!

And here's a couple of free images you can use too . . . 
These are from a 1918 ad.  I extracted them for you but there are no restrictions on use - use however you wish.  Just click on each one for the larger size and the right click to save to your computer.  Credit, links back, pinning to this blog on Pinterest is always appreciated!



I have a new kit coming out this coming Thursday and a drawing to win it for free will be here on my blog this time (instead of FB).  I also have a couple of kits retiring that will be announced here too.  Watch for details in the next day or so.
