Holy Scrap-a-Moly!! You guys – I totally hit a wall this weekend. My body literally revolted and would not let me get out of bed. You know how it is always so easy to tell others that they need to take of themselves while you continue running at full steam? Well, for reals, I am living proof that you can only push yourself so hard before you collapse. Friends, if any of you are in the same boat as I have been – please take some time to let yourself relax. It’s so much nicer when you make the choice to chill rather than being forced to stay in bed!
I hope that ya’ll had a better weekend than I did – although, I do have to say that I had a great Mother’s Day! I was almost brought to tears when my daughter walked into the restaurant with the card they decorated for me. Aren’t they just the sweetest????
So – now that I am feeling much better and have a renewed focus on self-care, I would love to show you my latest workshop – Little Dreamer!
I have to admit that this kit is not something I would typically purchase (although, really – who doesn’t love a magical unicorn?). So, I really tried to create bold layouts that will work for many different occasions. With all the purples and pinks, this kit is a little more on the feminine side – but you can always use more of the blues and eliminate the pink to get a more gender nuetral look for a couple layouts.
Happy Spring, ya’ll!! I am so excited to watch things bloom and spend more time outside. I love Spring – the beauty, the fresh start, new smells, and the sunshine. After the rain and snow we had here this week, I have my fingers crossed that winter will *finally* leave!!!
Some Kinda Wonderful is a great transition kit for the season! There is lots of green, which will be perfect for outdoor photos. The blue and gray will pick up hints of the sky, while the black helps to keep the bright colors grounded. Super cute and trendy! If you aren’t a fan of hot pink, the opposite side of the paper is a patterned white, so you can still use this kit with boys. I plan on using the “You Make My Heart Happy” layout for Mother’s Day. My kids will have to do a photo shoot with me on my day, won’t they???
Happy Small Business Saturday, my friends!!! Thank you so much for supporting me and my designs – you are all simply SCRAPTABULOUS and totally ROCK MY WORLD! In honor of YOU – I am offering FREE SHIPPING on ALL of my IN STOCK PAGE KITS, including my brand new kit that I have to share with you today! WOOHOO!! Get them before they are gone – they will make PERFECT gifts for your scrapping friends and family!
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I loved spending time with my family and today we are going to put some CHRISTMAS up here in da Kessler house! WHOOP WHOOP – bust out the Christmas music, sip on some egg nog, and drive my kids completely insane while I reminisce about every ornament that I pull out of the box. Ahhh, the holidays….. LOVE!
City Sidewalks is such a great kit – you can hit everything from Christmas cards, getting your tree, decorating, baking traveling, family, gifts, and Christmas morning with these pages. Check them out and see how they will work for you! Remember, City Sidewalks is only available until December 31 or while supplies last. Order yours quick so you aren’t sad!
So, I am totally thinking I should have a GI-NORMOUS vase of roses on my desk right about now – La Vie En Rose is sooooo LOVELY! If you are not big into Valentine’s Day pictures, don’t worry. This kit can be used for anyone you love, even your fur friends! La Vie will work GREAT with black and white photos, so you can use any photos you want on these layouts. Your square instagram photos will even work PERFECTLY on the first layout, too!
Happy 2016!!!! I hope you all had a SCRAPTABULOUS holiday season and spent quality time with friends and family. Here are some photos of my family in our Christmas jammies!
I know I am quite a bit behind in my creating, so let me assure you that La Vie En Rose will be completed by next Friday, January 15, and Charlotte by Friday, January 29.
So – here we go!! I hope you are ready for some BLING BLING and GIRL POWER, because that is what Kaleidoscope is all about!! If you have a special girl in your life, then this kit is MUST HAVE! Pastel colors, blingin’ gems, and an explosion of patterns and sweetness and fabulosity. Perfect for dress up pictures, parties, or a collection of selfies!
Well – it appears that the warm weather has gone for good until Spring (insert me wailing here). And while I love the feeling of warmth, I also LOVE the chill in the air and the excitement of the upcoming holidays! I truly enjoyed working with the White Pines Workshop on the Go Kit – the colors are gorgeous and festive! Because there are SO MANY goodies included with the complements, I chose to limit the number of photos on each page so that your eyes can drink in all the little details. If you need to add more photos, just grab some flip flaps (MY FAVE!) and add them to your pages – they will be PERFECT!
Happy National Scrapbooking Month, everyone!!!! So – I know that we are almost halfway through May, but if you still have not seen our exlusive new Taste of Summer paper pack, you are in for a SWEET TREAT!!!! For only $8.95, you get 12 double sided pattern papers in super bright, cheery colors and patterns. And – these are stand alone colors, so you won’t find them in our regular color palette!

This month we are featuring the Choose Happy Stamp Set. This set is so whimsical and fun – I am obsessed with the square frame and the little sentiments!

WOOHOOOO!!!! It’s finally DONE!!!
I have to share with you all – January was an incredibly hard month for my family. I was so emotionally exhausted that I was unable to create, to blog, or really do much of anything. So, please let me apologize for my absence and assure you that things are looking up and I am back to creating again!
And on to Confetti Wishes….. Can I just say that this was the scariest kit for me in the *entire* Annual Inspirations? It is just completely opposite from my usual style – but that’s ok, because sometimes we all need to be a little stretched once in a while, right?? Go, Go Gadget – scrapbook!!!!! So get your party hat on, cuz it be time to celebrate, Confetti-style!
