 TRULY the most fun I have had creating a kit :)  WILD LOVE was so much fun to work with and watch it grow!  It took a different turn than originally planned...but, sometimes that is the best - LOL!  I can see this being used for Valentine's/LOVE/romantic layouts...as well as lots of others!  I really wanted to create a kit that could be used over and over...and not just on February 14th - LOL!  There is a sweetness to the kit...as well as an elegant feel...AND even some whimsy AND wild - lol!  The fur goes perfectly with all of the colors and patterns and adds a fun touch!  You will find cool elements to embellish your pages...wings, buttons, papers, stitching, alpha, and so much more!  ENJOY!

I am thrilled to announce that Christine Smith is also designing piece-a-cake albums for us now!  She brings her own unique style...a little bit funky and edgy...and totally COOL!  I LOVE what she did with this piece-a-cake album!  MOMS OF BOYS - how perfect is this?  LOL!  I know I will get alot of use out of it and can't wait to get started!  Most of the pages have a textured, off-white-ish background that mimics white cardstock for a 'white space' look!  Perfectly designed pages that go wonderfully together...LOVE IT!  And, there is even a printable pillow box template included as a bonus!  check out the one I created...it only took me about 5 minutes from start to finish!!!  It's the perfect way to present a little card or small gift :)

ONLY $5.95 NOW THRU JANUARY 31ST (after that time...it will return to its regular price of $8.95)

I will say it AGAIN...LOL...Nicole WOW'ed me with this album!  Just when I think she could not possibly out-do herself again...she does - LOL!  This is my new FAVE!  I cannot wait to scrap with it myself!  This is a '10 THINGS' album!  The thought was to have a TEN THINGS I LOVE ABOUT YOU album...and that's what this is!  But - it could be used for so much more as well :)  Be creative!  All of the pages are detailed, layered, embellished and ready for your photos and journaling!  Each of the TEN album pages has a number on it (1-10)...and the title page is blank.  I have included wordart for the title page if you wish to use it :)  It is a separate .png file so the choice is all yours!  So - save yourself some time this Valentine's and let us do the work for you - LOL!  These will make WONDERFUL gifts for your LOVED ones, hubby, wife, children, parents, etc.!

ONLY $5.95 NOW THRU JANUARY 31ST (after that time...it will return to its regular price of $8.95)

 So, I have seen TREAT BAG TOPPERS before...but, this is the first time I actually tried them and OH MY - they are sooooo much fun and SOOOOOOO easy to use!  Nicole created this collection of SIX toppers using the WILD LOVE kit!  As you can see - I used all of them in my photo above...and had so much fun with it!  Three of the toppers are sized at 7"x5" which should fit a standard sized sandwich bag perfectly.  The other three are smaller at 3.25"x4" :)  They should fit the smaller sized bags often found in the craft section, etc.  But - don't limit yourself...you can use these on all sorts of bags, etc.  They work great on cute little gift bags, hand sewn bags, paper bags and more!  They are easy to re-size...so hopefully you can make them work for any bags you have in mind!  I attached mine with staples...super simple - but, you could easily sew them...add decorate brads, buttons...or whatever you come up with!  They are perfect for giving at school, church, family, friends, etc.!  HAVE FUN!

----------------------------------------------------------------

Need Valentine's cards?  How adorable are these?  Nicole created this set using the WILD LOVE kit!  There are three card styles, each included in both 5x7 and 4x6 sizes for a total of SIX cards!  They are ready for your photo(s) and message!  They will make your Valentine's card giving super simple, personal and fun!!!
