Happy Chinese New Year! New Release and Freebie!

Kung Hei Fat Choi! I wish you a prosperous year!
It's the first day of Chinese New Year tomorrow (Jan. 31), so it's actually already Chinese New Year over in, well, China!
My newly released kit, "Kung Hei Fat Choi," is designed to scrap photos taken during this time. But as you will see in the inspiration below, this kit can also be used for so much more!

With deliciously rich primary colors and tons of handmade elements.

This kit will add a subtle touch of Asian elegance to your layouts.

 This kit includes unicase alpha, numbers, some symbols and 4 extra Chinese characters (Kung Hei Fat Choi).

Also there are 25 pieces of Chinese zodiac word-art.

The full kit is available for $4 at


You can purchase the individual pieces for $1 only this weekend!

Day 9 of Daily Download, and some awesome coupons!

Today is my daughter's first birthday. We didn't do much (since we had her birthday party on Friday), but it was a comfortable, lazy Sunday spent with just the family. It was nice. I also posted some great coupons over on my Facebook page. (hint: some of them are still left, so you may want to hop over and grab a good deal!)

I have left my With Love Studio blog hop up a little longer, to make sure you all grabbed it (it has a coupon inside, too)!

I also have today's download up on my Facebook page. It's some basic elements to go with the themed mini kits. I hope you enjoy them.

See you tomorrow!

Day 8 of the Daily Download!

Yes! We're really in day 8 of our daily download! I cannot believe how fast time has passed. I'm truly thankful for all of you who supported my designs, especially those who took the time to leave me a comment. So sweet of you! :)

Before I give you today's portion, I'd like to remind you that today is the last day for you to download my With Love Studio blog hop kit. Inside the download is a coupon that you can use together with my store-wide sale coming up, bringing the discount to a whopping 70%. Don't miss it!

Also, today (the 19th) is my daughter's 1st birthday! I can hardly believe it. It's definitely been a crazy year, and while I'm happy that she's getting older and growing out of some of her problems (most significantly, her eczema), I'm kind of sad that she's not a baby baby anymore, if you know what I mean. Anyway, I will be giving out random coupons over at my Facebook Page during the day. Be sure to watch the page so you don't miss anything.

Finally, here's your kit for today! It's the last of the Winter Friends, Patty. She's a cute, tomboyish penguin girl who is really good at sports. Starting from tomorrow, we'll be having basic papers and elements.

This download has expired.

See you tomorrow!

Day 7 of the Daily Download!

Welcome to today's daily download. It's over on my FB page! This time, I introduce you to Henry, a bird that loves to sing. He was from a tropical island, but moved to live with his wintery friends because they would put up with his constant singing!

Don't forget, the With Love Studio Blog Hop is still live. You can pick up my portion in yesterday's post.

And I have a ton of freebies going on as well. You can check them out on the "Freebies" page.

See you tomorrow!

Day 5 of Daily Download, and an Awesome New Kit (plus a freebie)!

Hi guys! We're half way through with our 10-day daily download! Time sure does fly when you're having fun. ;) Today, I have another new release for you. This vintage birthday kit celebrates adults getting another year older! I created it to remind myself that, even though birthdays do become bittersweet once you get to a certain age, there's no reason we adults can't celebrate in style!

This kit includes 2 full alphas, 23 papers and 60 elements. The individual packs are on sale for $1, while the whole kit is $3 only for this week!

And here's some CT inspiration for you.

I have a freebie that co-ordinates with "Another Year Older" also. It's a set of journal cards made by my CT Member Lea. Just click on the preview to download!

Today's daily download is the first "girly" kit of the series. It's over on my Facebook page. Hope you enjoy!

See you tomorrow!

Day 4 of Daily Download, and a $1 Kit!

Hi guys! Welcome to day 4 of the daily download! Are you scrapping with what you've got already? If so, please share it with me!

Before I give you today's portion, I'd like to show you a new mini I'm releasing today. It's BYO time at Scrap Takeout, and this month's palette is gorgeous! I fell in love with the purple and teal immediately. So refreshing! It's perfect for January-- the beginning, goal-setting, resolution-making time of the year. I created this mini kit with this in mind. This kit is $1 only from Jan. 15 to Jan. 22.

Here's some CT inspiration:

Lea is generous enough to turn her amazing LO into a freebie for you. Click on the preview to go to her blog!

Now, finally, is your daily download. This little fox is the genius in the cartoon. He invents all kinds of stuff, from jet-propelled sleds to robots to rocket ships. This mini kit is perfect for the little inventors in your life... well, OK, they're just taking things apart now, but you know they're going to make something amazing later. ;)

Today's download has expired. This mini will be put on sale for $1 for a limited time later!

Tomorrow I have another kit coming out, and another daily download for you. Stay tuned!
