Rustic Christmas Collab – In Store Now

Written by Ambowife on December 13th, 2011

Sherah Kraan, aka Skrapper Digitals, a very dear friend and fellow designer at the Studio has collaborated with me to create this new country highland Christmas collection called Rustic Chritmas.

We are both of Scottish heritage and you will find a few items that incorporate our family Tartans in their design. We had so much fun and poured so much love into this collection and we are truly very proud of it. We hope you will enjoy it too.

For a limited time you can get it at a reduced price. Crazy actually, all of this collection is 40% off till New Year’s Eve and the Complete Bundle is 50% off so that’s a huge saving.

Sherah will have a little freebie up for you tonight so drop on over to her blog to grab a sample.

Christmas Carol Blog Hop

Written by Ambowife on December 12th, 2011

It’s here, it’s time, the annual DSS Christmas Carol Blog Hop.
Every year we do this blog hop with each designer choosing a favorite Christmas carol to design a mini kit for.

This year I am doing Little Donkey.
I can remember Christopher singing this with his Kindergarten class way back in the day and it brings back such sweet memories of

happy Christmas times when it meant more to me, when it was all about the children.

I hope you and your loved ones have a safe and happy Christmas this year.
Don’t forget to leave some love as you collect all the fabulous festive minis on this blog hop

NEW KIT – It’s been a While I know

Written by Ambowife on July 2nd, 2011

I am a bad blogger!!! what can I say, my life is so full that it’s overflowing and something has got to give somewhere and it always seems to be my poor blog.

Well never fear because I have actually been designing this week and have come up with a kit for all those parents with Tweens, kids in those in-between age groups that seem to get missed when it comes to digi-scrapping. you see lots of teen kits and lots of toddler, kindy kits but I thought I would do this one for those my Niece Gabriella’s age, not quite at high school but too grown up for those toddler themes.

so here it is, you can grab the kit or the bundle which includes 10 card-stock papers and 6 glitter styles and tiles (1000 x 1000 pixels)

all papers are 12 inches in size and of course all of my products are created at 300ppi for optimum print quality.

With this kit I really have to shout out to you about Cheryl Seslar, her clip art is super cute and I have a cu multi vendor license to use her products in the creation of my kits, I just love them :)

So all the kiddies and teachers are created by Cheryl and altered by me, the rest of the clip art doodle type elements I created from scratch with my handy dandy wacom tablet, love it!!

Okay on to the previews, I hope you like my new kit ;) if you want to check it out at my store, of course head on over to the Studio here



Have a great week all :)

Once you have grabbed my Blue Christmas pressie, hop back on board and head over to the next station at DeliScraps by Min for her goodie too.

Here’s the blog train timetable of stations. The train departs at 6pm EST December 5th and will terminate at the North Pole on the 12th, Santa sort of needs it back by then LOL

It’s Voting time at the Studio

Written by Ambowife on September 5th, 2010

DesignerCompetitionweek1layoutsWell unless you have been hiding out in a cave somewhere or lost on a deserted island, you must have heard about the annual Birthday Bash going on over at the Studio.

We are having our 3rd annual Next Designer Competition too and it’s a freebie fest with so many entrants this year and the competition is outstanding this year.

woo hoo, we have had a fabulous time this week, the polls are open for the Designer Competition voting so pop on over to the forum to cast your vote can vote for up to 3 contestants.

You must be a member at the Studio to vote in this poll. While you are there pop on over to the gallery and grab some free minikits from the contestants in the Week 1 Gallery

There are also heaps of other challenges and fun for all to be had, why don’t you come on over and check it out today!! You won’t be sorry you did LOL

Also the Layout competition is closed for round 1 and we have posted the voting poll HERE.

Here’s a sneak peek at the layouts from the contestants jockeying for a position in the Studio Creative Team, you can vote if you are a member at the Studio and in this poll you can vote 5 times :)

LayoutARtistsCompetitionweek1layoutsMitsybelle’s Kit Autumn’s Kiss is just looking fabulous in all these layouts don’t you think? I’ll post the link to the poll thread as soon as it is up :) here is a small slide show of the layouts created for the contest this week, if you would like to take a closer look at them you can check them out HERE in the Layout Artist Competition Week 1 gallery

So onto other matters, Today is my 41st Birthday, well I am not sure how I feel about being in my 40′s rather than just being 40 I am now 40…something, which is kind of feeling like a downhill slide to 50 rofl. But I plan to have a good birthday LOL

Hubby bought me a trainer stand for my bike, which is what I asked for LOL. My butt is getting way too big sitting in this chair lately and the winter layers are thick too. Spring has sprung and it’s time to shed those layers, but I want to shed a few before riding my bike in Public. Sounds like he is out there mowing the lawn, so that’s nice! :)

NO idea what we will be doing today other than working out how to use the trainer and it’s blowing a gale outside so maybe it’s an inside day for me :)

Have a great day and see you at the Studio during September :)
