Bubblegum Beauty Collab and lots of Alphas!

Hello Scrappers! I have a fun new collab to show you today. Jennifer Fox and I teamed up for the first time to bring you Bubblegum Beauty, a great new kit perfect for your girly photos!

I also have several alphas today. Hemline Alpha was a freebie for everyone who applied to my recent CT call and is a great basic alpha, with a wonderful fabric texture and a stitched outline.

I'm also making the alpha from Bubblegum Beauty available separately from the kit. It IS included in the kit purchase, so don't purchase the alpha separately if you're buying the kit.

Nonsensical Alpha was a recent newsletter freebie and is a great way to add "pop" to any layout. If you missed either of these, you can now pick them up in my store!

I'm also releasing my Pewter Alpha for the first time at Scrap Orchard. It was previously part of my May Grab Bag.

Remember, all my new releases are 20% off only until next Thursday, so grab these deals before they're gone!

And here's some inspiration from my amazing creative team:

Have a wonderful week!

Boys & Girls Collection, Blend 2, and new CU!

Hello scrappers! I have lots of new goodies to show you today!

First, I'm releasing my Boys and Girls Collection at Scrap Orchard for the first time! Snips & Snails and Sugar & Spice were some of my most popular older kits and have been requested by several of you, so here they are! You can buy the Collection and save 30%, or you can purchase them separately.

I'm also releasing Blend Your Cares Away 2 today! This 2nd set of 12 x 12 blending masks is an easy-peasy way to get that popular blended look for your layouts, whether you use them on papers or photos.

For all of you looking for some great basic commercial use tools, I have made CU versions of both Blend Your Cares Away sets. I use these blending masks all the time to create my own papers. They're a great time-saver and make creating blended papers a snap. Use these 12 x 12 clipping masks to blend overlays, colors, and textures to your papers, giving them extra dimension and pop. They both include instructions for blending papers, colors, and transparent overlays in PS. No credit required, and you can use them to create papers for your S4H kits.

New releases are 20% off only until next Thursday, so be sure to snag these deals while you can!

And of course, I'll leave you with some inspiration from my amazing CT:
