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!!!

Inspired by the cool, crisp days of Fall, which are quickly approaching, and the sweet scent of apples, Apple Picking is the perfect choice to scrap those memories from the orchard. Kimberkatt Scraps and Darlene Haughin Designs joined together to create this kit that captures those family moments together, harvesting those bright red globes, happily munching their sweetness. Surrounded by shades of green, gold & brown, acorns & chestnuts, gingham & plaid, this kit includes 24 beautifully textured & patterned papers, 62 fabulously fall elements and a full A-Z upper and lower Alpha with Numbers & some Punctuation.
