Fluent Sarcasm & Sous Chef!

So we have not one but two fantastic new releases this week that are near and dear to my heart! Sous Chef was a request, and Fluent Sarcasm–well that just speaks to me!

This kit is so much fun! For every sarcastic quip or snarky little eye roll, this kit is waiting!

My kids love to cook. Love! They love to fight over who cracks the eggs or licks the spoon. I have lots of photos of them helping in the kitchen, so I was happy to make a kit like this!

Here’s a freebie for you! Just click to download.



Fresh Air & A Freebie

Ahhhh, breathe in the fresh air! It’s one of my absolute favorite parts of the warmer weather! This is one of my favorite Spring-y kits in awhile!! Soooo, ready, set, GO!

And here’s a FREEBIE for you! 🙂 Just click to download:


Life is an Adventure Blog Hop


Can you believe that {inter} National Scrapbooking Day (iNSD) is just next weeekend?! The Lilypad is starting the fun early with Part 1 of a huge collab kit, Life Is An Adventure by The Lilypad Designers

Lucky In Love

It’s been awhile since we updated the blog. It’s one of those things that got lost in the shuffle during our move.

We’re going to try to get back to it, though, starting with showing you what we’ve been up to this week!

Take a look at the bundle, too!

We are going to try to get back to a schedule where we offer freebies here on the blog periodically. We’re trying to find a new normal after our move! We are loving The Lilypad! But with any change, ya gotta find your new normal, right? So here’s to a new normal!

Fa La La & Tomfoolery

Happy Friday, Bella Gypsy fans! This week I have a little Christmas Spirit and some shenanigans to share with you from Tabatha and Lena. Gotta love that! This week the super bright and festive “Fa La La” Bundle is in the store as well as the seriously fun Bundle, “Tomfoolery”. All of the images are linked to the Scrap Orchard Market and there are freebies for you all the way at the end. Enjoy!

Fa La La Kit:

If you want more than just a kit, you’re in luck. There’s a bundle as well! It includes the kit, 3 coordinating products, plus it still has a FWP!

And this is the Tomfoolery Kit:

If you prefer a bundle you can find that too!

And don’t forget the freebies for you! They coordinate with each kit! Just click to download. 🙂



I hope these Bundles inspire your fun side and put a little festive in your step. Have a great weekend!

January Thrifty Gypsy- Happy Days

We’ve had a delay in posting January’s Thrifty Gypsy because Tabatha and I were trying to decide the direction we wanted to go with it. We’ve been having Thrifty Gypsy for over 18 months now and the interest in it has begun to wane, particularly with submitting layouts. So we are making some changes to it.

Moving forward we’ll post as close to the 1st of the month as we can what the Thrifty Gypsy is for the month. It will automatically be marked 50% off for the month, no need to use a coupon code. If there is a kit, bundle, and collection, all 3 will be marked half off. We will not continue to have a layout contest as we were only getting 2-3 entries a month on the average month.

January’s Thrifty Gypsy product is Happy Days!
