Love is finding your stocking filled with the things you love and knowing that the person who filled it knows you like nobody else in the world.

My husband and I are pretty good at choosing gifts for each other. We never do the typical department store Christmas, but rather focus on unique and personal items. This past Christmas, we went shopping together, splitting up in the store, each with a shopping basket and an agreement that if we crossed paths, we’d close our eyes and not peek. Oh how we giggled and teased: you’ll never guess what I got you! What fun it was to fill our stockings for each other and wrap the presents.

On Christmas Eve, after our family had left and it was just us with the dogs, we let the dogs open their gifts (yeah, we’re kinda cheesy like that) and then opened ours. Unpacking stockings was such fun! I was so excited when my husband found his blue penguin pattern duct tape, book light, and Uno cards, and then opened his Boba Fett alarm clock and stormtrooper wallet (yup, still cheesy). My stocking held Moonstruck chocolate truffles, a Cadbury Fruit and Nut bar like the ones we ate on our honeymoon, ear muffs for our dog walks, and a sheep for my sheep collection. My wrapped gift arrived late (to be honest, I was surprised his Boba Fett and stormtrooper arrived on time, we both seem to be late so often), so I didn’t get it until around New Years. Luminara candles like we had seen at the Tollgate Inn gift shop we’d been to weeks before; he remembered. The candles are battery powered, no flame, but they flicker like real candles (check them out here). I don’t think anyone in the world knows me better, truly.

This Valentine’s Day, love-themed kits abound. Cheesy to sweet, pretty and even wild, love is in the air here in digiland, and at theStudio, literally! Snickerdoodle Designs and Let Me Scrapbook have teamed up for February’s featured designer spotlight and challenge, creating a fairytale style collection they’ve called Love is in the Air. The collection includes boy and girl cupids, hearts, flowers, chocolates, and even a frog prince, all in a whimsical cartoon-style that is perfect for layouts about love and happily ever after.

You can find the Love is in the Air kit in theStudio shop at 30% off now, along with stacked papers, embossed papers, matts and border edges, borders, word art, journal cards, clusters, an alpha set, and glitters, all 30% off as well. There is a mini kit addon (get it here free and participate in the featured designer challenge!), an addon collection (45% off now), a bundled collection (57 % off now), and a huge entire collection (61% off now).

I was in scrappy mode this weekend and created a layout for the featured designer challenge, all about my Christmas stocking and definition of love using the free mini kit addon. I look forward to seeing all of your layouts too! If you enter, you’ll have a chance to win this collab, but don’t let that stop you from buying it. If you do and win, you’ll get a gift certificate instead!

To get you started with this collection, I’ve put together a frame for you to download. Just click on the image below. Happy scrapping, and best of luck in the challenge!

For Tish, With Love

by Toiny Westberry on 28 November 2010
in Charity Pin this scrappy stuff!

I don’t usually advertise for another store, but sometimes doing something out of love is much more important!  Recently the digital scrapbooking community got together to create a huge, stunning, amazing, did I mention huge, Scrapbooking Collaboration for one of our own.  Tish, “Pixiemama Designs”, lost her home, all her belongings and the beloved family dog in a fire.

The digital scrapbooking community has rallied around her in an amazing show of support to create a truly one-of-kind Charity collaboration.  It is now on sale at Scrappity-Doo-Dah.  It was an honor to be part of the team to create this gorgeous show of love.

 For Tish,With Love is a charity collaboration to help another designer in the digital scrapbooking industry. Tish aka Pixiemama Designs and her family lost her home early this month to a devastating fire. They lost pretty much all of their belongings. Tish, her husband, and her young son are working hard to rebuild their lives and we want to help!


A ton of designers, creative team members, and even scrapbooks have come together to show Tish and her family what an amazing community this truly is.
