Just Us {July} by Wendy Tunison Designs

Just Us {July} from Wendy Tunison Designs is finally here!  This kit has been a long time in the works.  Wendy put it off over and over again because in her heart, it had to be perfect when it was finished.  She says, "America, the beautiful, land that I love.  I think I was born with red, white & blue in my veins.  From the time I was a little girl, I remember how the national anthem brought tears to my eyes.  As an adult, the 4th of July is my favorite holiday.  I love the home town parade and the barbecue and the fireworks.  But what I really love about it is spending time with my friends and family as we celebrate our independence.  I love seeing our town decked out in flags and red, white & blue.  I love the way everyone comes home to visit and I love the atmosphere.  There is something about the flags flying in the wind and the soldiers dressed in uniform passing out flags to the children that brings a tear to my eye.  I am so thankful to be blessed enough to live in this beautiful land.  I wanted to created a kit that encompassed the way I feel about this special holiday.  I hope you'll fall in love with the old fashioned feel of this kit."  Just Us {July} is 30% off during it's introductory week.

There's another country that celebrates big in July and that's our northern neighbor (or should I say neighbour?), Canada!  So of course Wendy had to include something for them!  "Canada, my northern neighbor.  Oh how I loved researching for this kit and I learned so much about Canada.  I only hope that I did justice to this beautiful country and its inhabitants.  True North, Strong and Free rings loudly in my ears as I enjoy the grandeur of it's mountains and rivers.  I found myself brought to tears by it's history and the free spirited natives.  This, the homeland of my most favorite fictional character and some of my favorite poets.  A culture rich in tradition and patriotism.  I hope you'll find this kit the perfect fit for all things Canadian."

Have a great day!

Here are these great kits again, since that my Dad's family is from Canada, I love that Wendy did a Canadian kit as well.


For my hybrid, I made a Canada themed card to send to my Aunties in Toronto; they are very pro-Canada!

Eat Sleep Cache by The Scrappy Kat & Scraps N Pieces

Anyone tried geocaching? We just started last week & are hooked, thank goodness The Scrappy Kat & Scraps N Pieces have teamed up to create Eat Sleep Cache, a great collab full of everything you'll need to scrap those geocaching adventures. But the kits are so full of outdoor elements that they really can be used for any outdoor adventure; be it a walk in the woods, camping, or a picnic in the park.


Our first geocaching adventure was part success part failure when I realized we were on the wrong trail for the second cache. We still had fun!

She Slowed Down by Wendy Tunison Designs

Once upon a time, there was a girl who took on the world.  She took care of her family.  She worked hard at her job.  She cooked and cleaned and wiped up messes.  She made sure everyone around her got where they needed to be going and she spent hours watching and waiting for practices and recitals and games to be done.  She fulfilled her callings at church and she spent time making sure the elderly neighbor next door's needs were taken care of.  She was up early each morning and hustled all day.  She was the last to cliimb into bed each night after everything was finally finished.  She was overworked, overlooked and exhausted.  So, she took a little time for herself.  She slowed down and truly counted the blessings in her life.  Soon she found herself smiling and creating and basking in the beauty of the world around her.  Sure she still kept up with everyone else and their needs but she also started taking care of her own.  She slowed down in a world that ran circles around her no matter how hard she tried.  She let it go and let God work on things in His own time.  She stopped worrying and started living.  She took a deep breath and she let the sunshine hit her cheeks with a kiss of time.  She slowed down and it was okay.  She slowed down and she lived again.  She slowed down and found a peace she'd been longing for.  I hope you'll find this kit a peaceful and fun adventure.  Take some time and slow down.  She Slowed Down is full of fabulous one of a kind hand painted papers, unique ellies and so much more!  You'll love the textures and the handmade feel of this kit as you create layout after layout.  Beautiful for art journaling or traditional scrapping.  Versatile enough for both boys and girls, young and old.  Perfectly hued to work with photos from yesterday or today.  I'm sure you'll find this kit to be a fast favorite and longtime friend!
She Slowed Down by Wendy Tunison Designs is 30% off during it's introductory week!
