August 2011


Ruby Lane Designs is a guest designer here at theStudio for the month of September and the winner of our first Master Designer Competition.  Her store is so full of beautiful kits that it was hard to choose just one kit, but after much debate and drooling I grabbed her newly revamped Spring Breeze kit.  I can just feel the spring breeze blowing with all the new goodies in this kit!!!  I especially love the colorful butterfly!!!

 ON SALE 40% Off

And as a freebie for you today I’ve made this Quick Page freebie for you, Enjoy!!!

Hi all!  Happy Saturday!!  I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend, I am… now!  As I stood at the kitchen sink this morning, half asleep, finishing up the dishes from last night, I could hear the wonderful sounds of my children bickering in the living room, followed by sounds of gunfire, explosions & screaming emanating from my husbands Xbox downstairs in the basement, I made the decision that I would be escaping into Scrap World today!!  School shopping, laundry & bathroom cleaning have been put off, for now, so that my slip into insanity can slow down for a bit!!  Today, I’m hoping to keep what’s left of my psyche.  Tomorrow they can take it, fling it around, stomp on it, but, today, I’m resisting!!  I’m a rebel, I know! lol

So, in my rebelliousness, I decided to head to the store to see what new goodies have been added that I could play with, to take my mind off of the war raging around me, literally & figuratively.  And I fell in love!  I know, I know, I seem to fall in love a lot, but I just can’t help it!  Our designers here at theStudio are just fabulous!  And once you see this kit, you will completely understand where I’m coming from!

Tracy, Ambowife Designs, has a brand new kit out called Plush.  Now, Tracy doesn’t have a lot of time anymore to design, much to my dismay, because I really do adore her designs!  She is very busy with being an Admin at theStudio, along with the Creative Team & Quality Control Team Manager and a “real life” job! Tracy is amazing, in my humble opinion!  And, she does all of this with that brilliantly beautiful smile and a heart of gold!!  I love Tracy!  So, even though she’s short on time, she still manages to crank out some gorgeous products!  Before I lead you to the beauty of Plush, I want to show off some of Tracy’s new Commercial Use products because they so deserve the recognition, her extractions & quality are impeccable!!
