Kristin Cronin Barrow & Brook Magee – Duck, Duck, Goose!


Kristin collaborated with Brooke Magee this week and the resulting kit is super cute. Get it this weekend while it’s on sale at 20% off!


Duck, Duck, Goose is perfect for documenting an afternoon as the local duck pond, a relaxing day at the lake, or even your loved ones being silly! When I first saw it, I thought it was perfect for some pics we took at our girls weekend last week!


But I also wanted to play around and see if I could take this kit in another direction. Cause when you say Duck, I think of…


Which turned out perfect as well if you ask me! So with this kit being suitable for so many things, there’s no reason not to buy it!


Kristin Cronin-Barrow – Hot Summer Days


Due to a girls weekend out, I wasn’t able to scrap immediately with Kristin’s other new release. But I still wanted to show it to you, since it’s gorgeous! Next to the Hot Summer Nights, we now have Hot Summer Days!


Summer is all about the warm, lazy days and cooling off by the pool. Get that great summertime feeling with this fresh new kit from Kristin. The colors are perfectly warm and tropical featuring a rosy pink and a vibrant orange. Elements to make your memories stand out are umbrellas, popsicles, an ice cream cone, flowers, word art and more. First, take the time to enjoy your summer days and then make the most out of scrapping them! This kit also comes with a set of cards, snippets and some lovely bonus papers. All available seperately or in a bundle!


We had some real hot summer days past weekend, so this kit came in perfectly for scrapping those pics!


I hope you’ll love it as much as I did, have a wonderful time scrapping those warm memories!

Kristin Cronin-Barrow – Hot Summer Nights


Let’s dust this blog off, cause I’m back! I haven’t stopped scrapping, but I did quit all of my CT jobs for a while cause my mind was on overload. But when the amazing Kristin Cronin-Barrow was having a guest CT call, I couldn’t resist! Of course I never thought that I would make it, a lot of the Sweet Shoppe scrappers are so incredibly good, but I did! So for the months of July and Augusts I’ll be scrapping with her gorgeous designs!

This week, her new release is called Hot Summer Nights. And boy, are we having some of those here in Holland at the moment!


Warm temps and long sunsets…what’s better than “Hot Summer Nights”? The deep, rich colors and textures in this kit will have to staying up late to scrap, guaranteed. The embellishments include fireflies, stars, flowers, buttons, a full moon, a crescent moon, party lights and lots of word strips. Two different sunset-colored alphas give you the options to make your page perfect. Time to get your friends together, throw a party or a bonfire and grab your camera. Don’t wait…summer nights will be gone before you know it!

There are also lots of add-ons available, both separately and as a bundle!

I hope your hot summer nights will bring you lots of inspiration to scrap with this awesome kit!


FranB Designs – It’s October: lots of new goodies!


Can you believe it’s October already? Time really goes fast, almost too fast! The upside of it being October is that it’s almost Halloween! And that brings me to Fran’s first new release this week: Gothic Romance! Fran has 5 packs for you, each just $1.00 through October 7th over at Scraps ‘n Pieces, when they will be combined into a full kit plus extras.
This kit made me think of my favorite creepy couple: Jack & Sally! So that’s what I scrapped:
Like I said: I love Halloween! Fran’s second release is the Lovely Colors kit over at With Love Studio. Nothing is as beautiful as the burst of beautiful colors as the trees change colors. Take a road trip to see the beauty of nature and capture your trip with Autumn Road Trip. Or just stay home and have fun with the leaves too! Autumn Road Trip is the October Lovely Colors, each just $1.00 through Oct 7.
I had just the perfect autumn pic for this one, the colors are just perfect together!
And while it’s autumn, why not cuddle up inside with a good book? Which brings me to Fran’s final release this week, both available at SNP and WLS: iRead! Perfect for those trips to the library for reading clubs and programs and for lounging around in a comfy chair while you read a favorite book!
Or if you’re a total nerd like me, who’s impressed by gigantic bookstores, you can scrap those pics!
Well if that’s not enough inspiration to get you started this month, I don’t know what is! So go check it out!

The cute little owls made me think about my niece, who loves owls, so I created a non-birthday LO with it:


So you see, don’t always judge a kit by it’s theme immediately! It’s often usable in more ways than one! If you know any other ways, or have some birthdays to scrap, go check out this new release by Lisa Rosa! And have a lovely September!
