Christmas in July Continues…….

I’ve had Christmas music playing, as I have been shopping all of the Christmas in July sales!  With Christmas carols playing in my head,  I couldn’t help but be inspired to create some more Christmas products of my own!

I’ve added Vintage Christmas Stamps 01, 02, and Duet to my stores.  They are included in my own Christmas in July Sale, so you can pick these brand new products up at a 50% savings, now through July 31st!

Vintage Christmas Stamps were created from newspapers and advertisements dating back to 1903.  These very large graphics are provided in both PNG and ABR formats to provide you with the utmost flexibility as you either design or scrap. While they come with a Commercial-Use license, they are perfect for the Personal-Use Scrapper as well!

Merry Christmas…. early! :)

New Vintage Christmas Overlays!

It might seem odd to see the word “Christmas” in a July blog post title.  But my Christmas in July sale is in full swing, and I wanted to be sure to let you know I have added two brand NEW products.

Vintage Christmas Overlays, Sets 1 and 2, are textured Christmas-related overlays, created from vintage newspapers dating back to 1836, adding authenticity to your vintage designs. Combine with other color overlays, other print overlays, stamp with brushes, and/or experiment with blend modes. The possibilities are endless. While this product comes with a Commercial-Use license, it is perfect for the Personal Use scrapper too!

Save 50% now, thorugh July 31st AND get started on your Christmas designs, if you are a Designer, or your Christmas layouts, if you are a Personal Use Scrapper!

Nature Hike and a Freebie!

It’s no secret I love outdoors, hikes in the woods, and nature, in general. I find it not only beautiful and full of wonder, but also soothing and peaceful. One of my favorite natures quotes inspired “Nature Hike:”

“I go to nature to be soothed and healed and to have my senses put in order.” –John Burroughs

Whether you are simply relaxing, meandering down a forest trail, or enjoying a strenuous hike, release your worries and enjoy the beauty around you… and let nature soothe your soul.

Nature Hike is now available at:

Surf, Sand, and the 4th! And a Freebie!


Surf, Sand & the 4th is the newest and (I think) MOST AMAZING EVER Coordinated Collection by theStudio designers!!  Each designer worked with the same color palette and theme… and I really think everyone’s contributions are just fabulously creative and beautiful!

Packs are ONLY $1 per pack through July 15th!

I only had time to contribute 2 packs for this collection:   Surf, Sand & the 4th Stamps, and Surf, Sand & the 4th Signs.  You can find them both  here.

Not really sure how to use Stamps?  Check out my tutorial: PNG vs. ABR files – Which should you use?  (Surf, Sand, and the 4th are PNG files only, but this tutorial will give you multiple ideas on how to use them!)



Use the signs to embellish layouts to your local marina or aquarium,  your favorite seafood restaurant… or your catch of the day, if you love fishing!


Find the entire Surf, Sand, & the 4th Collection here.
