Toot toot!!

Hey there! I've been keeping busy, as usual, and I wanted to share some recent developments in my life...

In the last couple weeks, I have been asked to join the creative teams for two very talented digital designers. I can't tell you how excited and honored I am!! So now I am creating for Ferg Designs and Danielle Corbitt, yippee!! (Click on either name to see their store.) Both of them have stores at Digital Candy. I will be creating layouts to promote their new designs, as well as contributing to their blogs. If you want to see what we're up to there, you can check out those blogs at Ferg Designs blog and Star Studded Designs Creative Team blog. I hope to post some of my projects here as well...

Here are a couple of my recent layouts:

I love the simplicity of the layout above. There is a lot of white space on the layout, meaning a lot of just the background showing. That seems to be one of the popular design styles right now, so I was having fun playing around with it. I showed it to my husband when I was done, and he says, "Yeah, it's nice... but you're going to fill up the rest of the page, right?" LOL

And here's another from a couple weeks ago...

Well, that's all I have for now... have a great week!

I've crossed over to the digi world....

Hello.... anybody out there?? Boy, it's been a while since I've posted here! I haven't been stamping as much lately, although I still love it, and I will never give it up completely. (I have way too much invested in it, LOL!)

My focus has shifted a bit in the last few months to digital scrapbooking. I am having a great time learning all the tricks! I got into paper scrapbooking over ten years ago, and although I loved it, I found it to be overwhelming. After having four kids, it was tough to find the time for it. And I would get so frustrated when I wanted to sit down and scrap, but I didn't have the supplies I needed. I never had just the right paper or accents, KWIM? That's what is so great about digi scrapping! I can always find whatever I need online at any time of day or night. I also like the you can use the digi items over and over, as much as you want. You can *easily* make changes to your layout until you have it just right. Plus, there is no mess to clean up!

So I'm going to post a few of my digi layouts. In the future, I plan to share both my stamping and digiscrapping stuff here. Here are a couple of layouts I made recently:
