Hi all,

Happy Happy New Year to everyone!  Hope 2012 brings you the best!

I decided to push myself this month and join 2 big blog trains so this will be the first of my freebie offerings for the day and you can look for another a bit later in the evening tonight!

I really loved the color scheme for STS's January Road Trip!  These colors really reminded me of the colder weather so this is what I came up with for all of you.

Newly Released Kits for November

Here in the United States, we are experiencing a few of the last remaining nice days of fall.  The weather has been warm during the days and we have had some exceptionally great weekends with a lot of sun!  I really enjoy everything about fall--the colors, the smells, the holidays, and the many opportunities to get outside to the cider mills.

I recently designed some papers, elements and alphabets for all these wonderful fall related activities which you might be enjoying with others right now.  These kits would also be great to count down to those days leading up to that wonderful holiday towards the end of the month--Thanksgiving.  Go ahead, showcase all those preparations and traditions like choosing the gathering place, selecting the menu, decorating the home, setting the table, or planning other related activities which occur before the festivities even start.

Okay, you have probably heard enough, here are the new releases:

Designer Quest 3 Challenge Freebie at Scrapping Fairy Tales

Hi everyone.

I am so happy with the kit which I designed for the challenge.  We were to pick something we were thankful for, take a photo of it, come up with 5 colors for the color scheme, and then we had to restrict ourselves to 5 papers, 12 elements.

Here is the kit.  Click on the link below to be directed to where you can pick up this freebie along with some other kits designed by others.  (P.S.  I had some things left over so I will probably make this into a bigger kit for my store a bit later...)

The story behind the Angels Among Us kit:
I am thankful for Angels Among us—you know, those rare individuals who are empathetic, sympathetic, caring, loving, giving, and compassionate!  If you are lucky enough to meet one of these angels, you are truly blessed as I was this past weekend (October 15, 2011).  Here is my story… (See the first reply thread for the story because it is a bit of a tale…)
My husband and I along with our two small children (ages 9 and 6) had to run some errands like we typically have to do during the weekends.  My husband had to go to an electronics store so I told him that the kids and I would check out the local Dollar Store which was right next door.  We went our separate ways and then met up again and proceeded to find a few items that we could give away as Halloween gifts to our neighbors (a.k.a., a Boo gift). After our purchase, my husband wanted to check out another store that sold household goods so we all walked over to that store.  Before we even got to the door, my husband asked me if I had his car keys.  I told him that I did not (he had driven).  This is where our day took a turn for the worse because of course, we did not have a spare key to the car and we do not own a cell phone (one of the rare families not to have one I know) so we could not even contact anyone for help. 
We ended up looking around the various three stores where the keys could have been and we looked in the parking lot and in the car but the keys were nowhere to be found.  The car next to us asked us if we lost our keys and we told them that we had.  (They basically just said they had a spare key to their car but it was in another state which in no way was helpful to us at all).
When we could not find our keys, my husband decided that we should just walk home and get the spare (home, by the way, is five miles away from the stores we were at).  We were not really dressed for the hike but started off anyways with little other options.  Well, we were doing fine until half way home, our six-year-old son said his feet hurt.   I told my husband that he should go the remaining distance while the kids and I would stay put at a local convenience store (CVS).  Our nine-year-old daughter wanted to go with dad but I put my foot down and told her that we would wait at the store until dad picked us up.
We knew it would be a while before my husband could get to us because he still had about 2.5 miles to go and he would have to find the keys and then drive my car to pick us up.  I decided that it would be best to hang out in CVS for a while because the weather was cold, it was very windy, and I was the only person who had a coat.  As many of you are probably aware, little kids cannot be contained in a store for much longer than 15 minutes without touching everything, pressing every Halloween decoration, and picking up every toy that they see.  After I am sure we outlived our welcome, I decided to wait outside for a bit.  Well, we found a ledge and all three of us huddled under my coat and proceeded to enjoy the trail mix which I hoped would satisfy my kid’s hunger for more than a half hour!  We must have been sitting there for a good five-ten minutes when a lady approached us.  She said that she knew it was cold outside and she thought that we might need something warm.  She told us that she wanted to give us two blankets which she just purchased inside.  (I could see that one blanket was purple—a girl’s color, and one was olive green—a boy’s color).  She then said “Merry Christmas”.  When she presented her gracious gift to us, I thanked her for her generosity but told her that we really did not need the blankets; we were waiting to be picked up by someone.  She asked if I was sure, and I repeated that I was indeed sure.  We spoke for a bit and then she left us to go to her car (blankets still in hand).  About a minute later, my husband pulled up and I shared with him the story of this woman’s compassion and selfless act because she did not want anything in return other than helping others out.  Now I share this story with you in hopes that 1) Maybe that woman is reading this and she can know that she is truly an angle among us and 2) Maybe we can all help others out even in the smallest way so the world can be a better place for all.
(P.S. I did not have a camera with me so I could not get a photo of this woman or her gift, but I did find a photo of yarn which represents the colors in the blankets which she offered to us.)
P.S.S.  I actually designed the angel in this woman’s likeness because she had darker hair.  Unfortunately, I never got her name but her act of kindness will certainly be remembered by me for a long time.

Newly Released Mini Kit - Creatures of the Night

In two short weeks, some people over the world are going to celebrate Halloween.  Before this evening of trick-or-treating, parties and festivities are taking place at schools and at homes all over the states.  I could not resist designing a mini kit which you can use to document all of those special Halloween celebrations.  Here is the kit...

This kit could also be used to showcase those beautiful fall evenings.  (Before darkness falls, beautiful colors of pastels fill the skies to form those memorable sunsets.  As it gets later in the evening, it gets darker and darker out until the sky appears black.  This is the time when the creatures of the night take over in search of food and/or adventures.  This mini kit focuses on two of these creatures--the cat and the bat as well as the elements of the night. )

Freebie Kit - Home is Where the Heart is--See Below for more information

I almost forgot to share my Week 2's entry with you in the Designer Challenge over at Scrapping Fairy Tales.  This kit is called Home is Where the Heart is.

For this challenge, we were given 3 colors to start with (orange, bright pink, and olive) and we had to come up with two other colors to coordinate with the original colors (I chose yellow and brown).  We also had to design the kits around a specific theme for the color choice we selected and the theme I chose was Love.  When I saw this word, I immediately thought of the one place where I have always felt love—home.

New Kits in Store - Project 365: Fall Months, Parts 1 and 2

Happy fall everyone!

Where I live, the air is crisp and the leaves are falling from the trees--a sure sign that Fall is underway and winter is not too far off.  The cooler temperatures and the beautiful colors are the inspiration for my latest kits...

Both kits were designed around the Project 365 theme with a focus on the Fall months. (Are you keeping up?) You can capture all of those memories which occur during the fall months with these kits full of rich fall-like colors.  The elements are generic enough to complete any layout of fall festivities, Thanksgiving preparations, and other activities that occur during the months of September, October, and November.  Those days of the week elements or that date strip alone will help document all of those preparations leading up to those special festivities.  

You can grab both kits at my store:  My store at Digi Style Designs

Designer Challenge Freebie at Scrapping Fairytales-Creatures of the Night

I am participating in my first ever design challenge over at Scrapping Fairytales.  The challenge was to use a certain color scheme and to use a button in some way.  Here is the kit which I designed:
Before darkness falls, beautiful colors of pastels fill the skies to form those memorable sunsets.  As it gets later in the evening, it gets darker and darker out until the sky appears black.  This is the time when the creatures of the night take over in search of food and/or adventures.  This mini kit focuses on two of these creatures--the cat and the bat as well as the elements of the night.  Of course, the colors are perfect for those Halloween layouts as well.
