The Train is Leaving the Station

Happy March 1st everyone!

Can you believe that its March already?  The days just seem to be whipping by and I don't feel like I can ever catch up.  Hopefully you all are having a great week and loving that March is here as well as a new Blog Train.

This month we decided to go with the them Spring Sun & Easter Fun that is full of those wonderful pastel spring colors. The Designers in this train have put together some really beautiful items for you to include the minis, alphas and templates.  Please remember that we work hard to bring you freebies so please don't share them but rather direct them to our blogs and of course, leave a little love.... always appreciated.

Tammy from my creative team put together is beautiful layout using my part of the train.

You should have come from Digilicious Designs
and your next stop should be Designs by Krista
If you happen to get lost along the way, stop by The Blog Train blog.

Have a blessed day!

Looking for Some Help

Good morning everyone!

I hope you are having a great morning.... at least those of you not caught in the horrible weather going on around the US.  Those of you in the horrible weather, my prayers are going out to you and your families.  I am in a great mood this morning and hope to have it continue throughout the day!

I am asking for some help though.... I have made it to round 5 of the Stuff to Scrap Designer Darling contest and we now have to make a full kit.  I want to create a kit from colors or a theme that YOU are looking for.  I would love to have suggestions left in the comments section (along with a way to reach you) for colors or a theme.  You can leave a link to colors in the comments if you have something very specific that you are looking for as well as if you have a picture of a theme.  If I choose your idea, you will be given the kit FIRST for free (reason for a need to contact you) and the 2nd and 3rd choices will recieve a coupon to my shop.

I hope that you all can help me with this and participate in my last challenge.
Have a blessed day!

Finally Finished Round 4 and Add-On Freebie

Good day everyone....

I hope that everyone had a good weekend.... I had an awesome one with my DH who surprised me with an afternoon date while the kids where all out and about. Such a great day!

Ok with everything going on, I finally got Round 4 done.  The challenge this week was to create a kit using absolutely no CU products and using the cutest photo as inspiration (it was a darling photo of Deanna's newest addition in a hand knitted outfit and blanket).  This was even more of a challenge with time restraints due to the family but I did finish it along with a little add-on.  I chose to be inspired by the colors of the photos.  I started with making a boy birthday kit and then it evolved into a man's wish kit.  I really hope you like it, swing by Stuff to Scrap to pick it up and vote for me.

New Release and Sneak Peek

Good day everyone....

I know I am a day late with my new release post but I have been working hard on the Round 4 challenge for Stuff to Scrap.  Our challenge this week is to use absolutely no CU including styles and brushes.  Very tough challenge for me but I am muddling through it and learning a lot with the support of my DH who has been taking pictures for me all week.  Here is a sneak peek of what is to come this round.

Now for my new release.... its called Life Everyday and that is exactly what it is used for.  All those everyday photos that you take of your family, friends and odds & ends.  Easily can be used to help you along the way with completing your 365 books.  It contains 10 papers, 18 elements, and 4 word arts. Pick it up this weekend for 20% off in my shop.

 Tammy created this "everyday" layout using my kit and I think she did a fantastic job!

Time To Vote!!

Hi everyone!

I hope your week is going better than mine.  We have been hit with some kind of bug in this house and its not fun.  I spent the better part of yesterday sleeping - really only awake for 4 hours total.  I am just finishing an antibiotic so it must be viral.... blah!

Anyway, there is still time to get over and vote for my latest addition to the Stuff to Scrap Designer Darling contest.  I would truely appreciate any votes possible.  Also remember that you can still pick up Round 2 until I release Round 4.

Thanks for all your support during this contest and I hope you are enjoying all the freebies you are compiling from the contest.

Tammy from my creative team did this beautiful layout using the Round 2 kit called At Home!

On to Round 3, New Release and Freebie

Good day everyone!

I hope your weekend is starting out wonderful... little cloudy but not too bad. Been a very busy and stressful week but things seem to be looking better so we are going to continue praying for things to get better.
This week have released a new mini that was once a collaboration called Amazing Love. It will be on sale at my shop all weekend so now is the time to pick it up.

Some beautiful layouts from my new creative team member Tammy and one of the With Love Studio creative team member, Bren... Thanks Ladies!

Now for the contest.... I am so excited that I got to move on.  This week we have to scan or photograph our own CU products and extract them.  The extracting part I have down pretty well, but let me tell you it wasn't as fun trying to get the photos clear.... luckily I had my DH who was there to help out.  This is what I came up with.... hope you enjoy it.

Round 2 Is Ready

Good day everyone!
It has been such a world wind this week of emotions around here. Never knew taking a weekend away would end up sparking so many ups and downs.... and luckily this week has ended on an up (besides the crazy side effects of all the meds I'm on).

Now I just finished my second entry into the Stuff to Scrap Designer Darling contest and would love for you to check it out and pick it up if you wish.  We were instructed to make a monochomatic kit.... and those were the only restrictions.  I found a wonderful photo of winter wear in creams, tans and browns and ran with it to come up with At Home.... a cozy brown kit for almost any layout or even hybrid project. 

You can pick up here as well as the others.... please leave some love for those you choose to pick up.

Now that you have that.... don't you want some more freebies?  Well the shop is holding so many fun challenges right now plus a Valentines Challenge where you can pick up some really great freebies.

And if that wasn't enough fun and free..... don't forget that the With Love Studios is being featured over at Home is Where the Art is where the Designers of With Love Studios put together a collaboration that you can pick up free and are all offering coupons to go with it.  How wonderful it that?  Just get over there before all the deals are gone.

Getting Back into The Contests

Good morning everyone!

I hope you all had a good of a weekend as I did.  I so needed the retreat and the message was so right now with what I am going to through and working on.  If a  downfall, the bed was so soft for my back and so now I am not walking, sitting or laying without pain but I am working with the meds to get through.

Now I didn't get to post before I left that I have started the Stuff To Scrap Designer Darling contest but that doesn't mean you missed my entry or the others.  They gave us a fall colored palette and said to run with with.  Seeing that it is the month of love (and I of course haven't made enough love minis lately...hehe), I chose to merge fall and love into my mini called Fall In Love.  I hope you like it, go pick it up and let me see what you did with it.  And of course if you would like, please swing by and vote for me.

New Releases and CT Call

Good Friday everyone!

As you are reading this, I am on my way to a ladies retreat (yippee!) in the mountains.  I get to be away for 2 nights and 3 days which I haven't had in several years.  I hope you all have as great of a weekend as I will!

It is the first Friday of the month and so that brings new Lovely Colors for With Love Studio.  The colors this month are just so beautiful and bright that they will bring you out of any type of drab weather.  My part I called Sunshine and Happiness and am totally in love with it.  It has been a while since I have truely loved what I did.  I hope you feel the same..... and swing on over to the Lovely Colors area to make yourself a kit of your choosing while they are on sale for the weekend.

Now that you have gotten your goodies on, why not think about joining my Creative Team.  I am looking for a few ladies (or gentlemen) who are looking to join a team to show off my Designs but also their beautiful layouts.  The only requirements are that you complete a minimum of 2 layouts per month, post to my With Love Studio Gallery as well as 2 others, and be honest & reliable.  I am a very easy going Designer due to my "real life" and so am very understandable but need to know that I can count on those who will help promote me and my designs.  If you are interested, please email me at with a brief bio of who you are, what your scrap design is, why you want to join my CT as well as a link to your gallery and blog.

Have a blessed weekend!
