With the new release of Blendits Layered Template #16,
I thought this would be a great time for a new tutorial using Artisan Software!
 My good friend Lori B. created another FABULOUS tutorial using Template 16 and my
A Year In Review Collection just for you!
Watch how Lori creates an amazing page, explaining each step as she goes along!
 Here's what Lori started with...
 ...and here's her finished page:
Now watch how she made the magic happen!

You can find all of my Blendits Layered Templates at

Here are a few more video tutorials for Artisan!
(Remember....the concept is the same no matter which Template you use!)

You can find 2 tutorials for Artisan HERE

Enjoy the new Template!!

**NEW** Great Things Ahead - Fusion Kit, FREEBIES + Featured AND Spotlight Designer Weekend Sales!

So how cool is this...I'm the Featured Designer this weekend at PBP
What a way to start the year!
Both of my stores are having a 30% OFF sale on all Kits and Extra Packs through January 11th AND....
that 30% OFF has been applied to my already discounted Bundles to save you even more! 

If you didn't get the PBP didn't get a chance to see this fun 
little graphic they had me fill out!
(so I thought I'd share)
Of course there's more to me than the items I highlighted...I love teaching my Zumba classes 3 nights a week, love designing (of course), adore my two teenage daughters, love reading Rom/Com books (my new favorite author is Julia Kent), James Spader is the BOMB, can't miss watching Scandal and The Blacklist, anxiously awaiting Sylvia Day's last installment of the Crossfire Series (pre-ordered!),
I'm going to be an "empty-nester" next August (trying NOT to get stressed about that...of course...the best therapy for me is designing so I'm sure you'll be seeing lots of kits inspired by that event in the months to come)....Chinese and Mexican cuisine top my list of favorites when dining out...but nothing beats my own cooking!
Enough about me....'s a new year, and a new year calls for a new kit about looking ahead.
On sale at PBP
 Here's a little inspiration for you!
(You can see more amazing pages created with this kit HERE)
I made a few coordinating goodies for you...I hope you like them!
Grab these Deco Transfers HERE
 Head over to my Pinterest Board and grab this fun set of Washi Tape!
I hope you enjoy this new kit and my Featured and Spotlight Sales going on now through the 11th!
Don't forget about the Retirement Sales at my PBP store!
Only a few days left before these Kits and Collections are gone forever!
Have a great weekend!
