Delightful New Goodies In No Particular Order

Hello scrap fans!  I am watching the Academy Awards at the same time as I'm updating the blog, so if I veer off into insanity, blame it on the movies!  I do have to tell you, though, that I saw Jellie wearing one of her pink costumes there - REALLY AND TRULY, I swear, my husband saw her too!!!!!  And no, we were not drinking!

I wanted to show you some of the new kits I've added to my stash in various ways - such wonderful and delightful goodness!  I don't have layouts to show yet for all of them, but those will come soon!

Last Tuesday night, I attended the regular Scrapbookgraphics chat (which I LOVE and is now an integral part of my week!).  This week's chat was hosted by Studio Christina Renee.  We had a GREAT time, lots of laughs and craziness, and in the end, I won the contest, despite an almost 8-minute absence after my silly computer shut itself off randomly as it is prone to do.  I won a $10 gift coupon to her store, which I could have spent 10 times over, but finally settled on one thing.  I was advised to save it for the release of Authentic Artistry III, but I have no ability to wait when such beautiful goodies are on the line!  My choice went to Authentic Artistry II bundle, and here are the previews:

I haven't yet had a chance to dig into the kit for a complete layout, but I did use it for a going-away card I made for mom:

Actually the flower spray on this one is from "The Promise" by Dawn Inskip, we'll get to that in a minute.  Anyway, can't wait to make more beautiful layouts with this kit - thank you Christina Renee for your generosity!

Okay next let's look at The Promise by Dawn Inskip.  I actually purchased this kit because I wanted to make a wedding card for friends whose wedding we were attending, and this release was perfectly timed.  Here's the kit preview:

Again I used this one for a wedding card for my friends, here it is:

Next up we have Studio Gypsy!  Lisa released a new kit this week called Rural Chic, and wow is it ever gorgeous!  Here are the previews:

And here's my CT layout with pictures of my amazing beautiful daughter:

Love love love this kit Lisa!!!

Now let's talk Tangie!  I am lucky enough to be a part of Tangie's Backstage VIP crew for the next few months, and I am having an absolutely fantastic time with this!  Here are the products Tangie released this week.

First, Art Journal Caravan Parcel 9, a Collab with Holliewood Studios:

and the Splatter Graffiti to go with this kit:

She also released the fifth kit in her amazing Journal Anthology series:

And, last but not least, Tangie released her Altered Art Smart Starts #7:

Can't wait to use this Smart Start!

I have done one layout so far with this week's products.  This is in response to the Art Journal Caravan verb for this week which is "Amuse."  This was a tough one for me for some unknown reason.  I was not inspired by any of the prompts or quotes Tangie gave us. So finally I said to myself "Self, what amuses you?"  And here's the layout that was the result - as always, click for a larger version:

This layout uses pieces from Parcel #9, Splatter Graffiti Amuse, and Journal Anthology 5.

Next is an amazing kit from the designers at Deviant Scrap.  This kit is featured as a freebie giveaway in the next issue of Somerset Digital Studio magazine which hits the newsstand on March 1, but Hollie was kind enough to give Deviant creative team members early access to this kit.  So without further ado, here is the absolutely stunning preview:

I promise you, after examining this kit, the preview doesn't even come close to doing justice to what is contained within its folders.  No  layouts from this yet, but soon I promise!

Well, sadly I must end this post as the Best Picture has just been announced - Hooray for The King's Speech!  More goodness to come soon, watch this space!

Peace and love to everyone!
