Chocolate Kisses in time for Valentine's Day

This has been a busy week in Designing and Scrapland for me. I finished my latest kit, Chocolate Kisses. I love the colors I've chosen - Pinks and Browns (my favorite color combination at this moment). This kit is perfect for Valentine's Day Layouts, Weddings, Romance, Baby Girls. Just perfect!
You will find within this kit:
* 5 Solid Papers - Chocolate Brown, Caramel, Cream, Pink, Lt. Pink
* 6 Patterned Papers - Plaid, Argyle, Stripes, Circles, Kisses, and Love Circles
*3 Buttons
*3 Eyelets
*3 Brads
*5 Ribbons
*5 Bows
*3 Felt Hearts
*3 Glitter Hearts
*4 Puffy Stickers
*1 Lace Embellishment
*2 Chocolate Hearts
*1 Chocolate Rose
*1 Postage Stamp

You can find Chocolate Kisses in all 5 of my stores! See my sidebar for the links.

This is also the first kit I have created after reading Sandra Adamson's e-book, So You Wanna Be a Designer. This book has helped me so much in my designing techniques. It has taught me the art to making papers as well as packaging my products and previews. I love how this preview has turned out!! The book is geared towards Photoshop CS2, so I really had fun learning how to use my new program, Photoshop CS3. If you are really interested in learning to become a designer and are looking for something to help walk you through the steps, I highly recommend this book.

I have been busy scrapping photos from Hannah's class. I'm creating a Digital Scrapbook for Hannah's teacher that highlights all the field trips, parties, and special events from throughout the year. Of course, they are on the desktop and I'm typing this on Stephen's laptop. But that's all going to change in a couple weeks as Stephen is getting me a laptop for my Valentine's Day present with our tax refund. I'm soooo excited!!!!

I do want to apologize to my CT Designers. I am seriously slacking in my CT Areas. I still need to scrap photos using products from the majority my CT Designers. I promise I will get them done. It's just been a busy week, playing catch up after being so sick last week. To make up for it, I want to do a little enabling.

I am still sitting on the Guest CT at N4D, and this month, I chose to work with KylieM Designs's kit, Swirls are for Boys, too. I'm looking forward to working with this kit. I know I'm going to have so much fun with it.

This weekend, I am going to be working with Lliella Designs's kit, Fancy Hearts Club. This kit is just gorgeous!! I love the colors, the papers, the elements - everything about it!!! But until I am able to start working on the layouts, let me share with you this awesome Blog Party that Lliella Designs is taking part in this weekend in celebration of ScrapLadies's 1st Birthday. The designers at ScrapLadies have put together an amazing Mega Kit for absolutely free. All you have to do is visit each of the designers' blogs. Start with Lliella Designs's blog!

And while you're in search of freebies, be sure to spot by Mermaid's Haven and pick up Candee's latest freebie kit, October Romance, that she made in honor of her sweetheart!

Traci Thompson, at Make It Scrappy, has finally come out from her hiatus and started designing again. She has really outdone herself with her latest kit, A la Grunge. It's absolutely gorgeous and sitting on my desktop awaiting me to open it up and scrap lots of photos using it. I just love the brown with that color blue/green.
I will be back tomorrow with more enabling and LOs. Tomorrow is going to be a long day that starts with Weight Watchers and ends with 2 birthday parties. I know I will be looking forward to the scrapping break I get to take at the end of the day!!
