Hi everyone!! Just a reminder, there will be no Show Offs or new products this Friday. But I'll be back next week, so keep sending your Show Offs in. They'll all go in the Aug. 6th slideshow!

See ya!!

its friday, people!

Hey guys!! It's already Friday again! Can you believe it? This week flew by.

Here's what I'm releasing today:

"Paint Stroke Glam"

And I'm also putting this alpha in the shop. It was a past Speed Scrap prize . . .

"Jami's Birthday Alpha"

Here's the page I scrapped with both of the new products and lots of other Britt-ish Designs goodies:

Here's what the rest of the Britt Girls scrapped . . .

Thanks girls!!

Ok - let's watch this week's slideshow of Show Offs . . .

Thanks to everyone who Showed Off this week! You'll all be getting my new "Paint Stroke Glam" element pack. Watch your email inboxes.

If you'd like to learn about Showing Off and getting gifts, read THIS POST.

I have a very important announcement about next week's Show Offs - so everyone pay attention!!!

*** Do I have you attention?? ***

There will be no Show Offs next week (no new products either). I'm going out of town on our yearly camping trip to Bear Lake next week and won't be back until Sunday, so no Show Offs on July 30th. You can send in Show Offs anytime between now and August 5th and I'll include it in the August 6th Show Off Slideshow. Does that make sense??

Hope so!

Everyone have a wonderful weekend!! See ya soon.

Speed Scrap Minnie Marathon

Hey there! I have a very fun announcement to make!!

This weekend MouseScrappers is having a Speed Scrap Minnie Marathon!!

The Speed Scrap I'm hosting is on:

Sunday July 25th at 1:30 pm Pacific, 2:30 pm Mountain, 3:30 pm Central, 4:30 pm Eastern.

And the prize is . . . . a secret!! But trust me, its something MANY of you have been wanting and asking for!!!

So, hopefully you can make it to lots of the Speed Scraps, but make sure you make it to mine!!

Every Speed Scrap you do, you get a ticket that enters you into a drawing for some big awesome grab bags!!

Get excited for this weekend!

my first ever "Revisit"

Sorry for the lack of posts this week! I've been soooo busy!

But I'm so excited that its Friday again already!! Because today I'm releasing my first ever "revisit" of an older kit!!

"I'm a Dreamer - Revisited"

This is a Revsit of my classic "I'm A Dreamer" kit. You remember this kit, right? I released it in May of 2008!

For those of you who don't have the orignal, and want the new stuff too, you can buy the bundle and SAVE $$!!!

"I'm a Dreamer - Bonus Bundle"

Here is a page I scrapped this week with the Revisit, with a few items from the original:

I also used Sahlin Studio's new "Doodle-y Loops", which I'm in love with!! AND a new template by Cindy Schneider from her pack that comes out tomorrow at SSD!!

Check out what the Britt Girls scrapped:

I hope you like the Revisit as much as we all have!! If you love it, I'll definitely be doing more "Revisits"!!

Oh and you can still download the orignal add-on freebie from I'm a Dreamer HERE!

Has anyone seen the movie What About Bob? I've had that scene where Bill Murray is strapped to the front of the sailboat yelling "I'M SAILING!!! I SAILED!" in my head ever since my new kit has come to life. Today I'm releasing . . .

Anyone else out there still celebrating Independence Day? Here in Utah the celebrations have stretched from Saturday clear through today! I'm headed to a parade this morning that my little brother's marching band is in. It's been like a super-sized 4th of July this year!

Anyway - I gotta run!! See you later!

recent scrappings

Happy Fourth of July everyone!! I hope you're all off having fun today!

I haven't done a post in a while with my recent scrappings! So - here are some of the pages I've scrapped over the past few weeks!

First up - some pages from our Fall 2009 trip to Disney World. These are pics with the princesses from our breakfast in the castle!


And here are some photos from the France Pavilion at Epcot.


A bouncing back to our Disneyland trip during Fall of 2007, the trip I'm working hard to finish! Here's a couple pages from that trip:



Here are a few non-Disney pages too. See! I don't always scrap Disney!! This one is from Father's Day last year! My SIL is going to kill me for scrapping and posting this picture of her. Sorry, Tam!


And here are three pages, featuring three of my adorable nieces.




A fun birthday page from when we went out to dinner for Tami's birthday.


And a couple more Disney pages from our more recent trips.



Ok - that's a lot of pages!! So, I'll be done now. Have a great holiday and I'll see you guys later!

saturday new releases

Before I get to the new releases this week, have you guys been keeping up downloading my products in the Daily Download? The links are only active for 1 day! We're at Day 3 now. Hope you're having fun and collecting each piece.

Ok . . . well, it feels weird to have a new release post on a Saturday, but here we go!

New this week from Britt-ish Designs:

"Stacked Templates 3"

These templates were all based on some of my "stacked" LOs! Here are the originals that inspired the templates:

"You Can Quote Me: Family"

And last, but not least! This kit was originally offered at DSA in "The Fix", but if you didn't grab it there, its now in my shop!

"Time for a Haircut"

Check out what my Britt Girls created with all the new stuff:

Hope you guys are inspired by their work!! I know I am.

Well, that's it for today's new releases. Have an excellent holiday weekend! And I'll see you later.

have a little Faith.

Sometimes life just smiles down on you and things come together in the most amazing ways. Back in January, I chose the word FAITH to be my word of the year. I have been focusing on it, applying it in my life, studying about it, etc.

A couple months ago, I randomly discovered this book called "Forever Lily" by Beth Nonte Russell, which is about a woman's journey to China to adopt her daughter. (I highly recommend this book!) I ordered the book right away and last month I read it. After reading it, I felt really emotional about the story. And it left me feeling . . . like there was something I needed to do.

A week after I finished the book I found out what it was that needed doing! I learned that an online friend of mine, a fellow Britt Girl actually, Leda, is currently going through the process of adopting her second daughter, "Faith" Cui Mei , from China. Read Leda's heartwarming story of how they found Faith HERE. (have a tissue handy, I bawled).

The circumstances with this adoption have been unexpected and they are in desperate need of some financial help. I immediately went to work to create a kit to donate to her cause!!

Watch this amazing video to learn more about Leda, the adoption of their first daughter from China, and their efforts to adopt Faith:

So, calling all fans of Britt-ish Designs, it's time to do some good!! Please head on over to Leda's Faith In China Blog and purchase this kit! You can get the kit for just $4.00 OR you can go up to $5.00 or more and get their special fundraiser song as well! I'm asking everyone to please donate as much as you can! Every extra dollar gets them closer to being able to bring their Faith home. She has been waiting a long time for a family!

So, while you only have to donate $4, if you can donate more, please do!


I added just little touch of Asian flair to the kit, and made sure to include Faith's favorite colors, pink and yellow!

Leda also has other great products on her blog for sale that people have donated, and all the money goes toward her adoption. Mommy Time Designs donated the CUTEST Minnie Mouse pillow case dress with CUSTOM monogramming for just $35 and free shipping!! There's only one available, so if you want it, go get it now!!!

Thank you so much for your help so that Leda's family can bring Faith home! I hope you can feel the special spirit that surrounds this little girl and Leda and her family. I can hardly think about it without getting really teary eyed!!

Hug your family tight, enjoy the holiday weekend!! Have a happy happy day! And have a little Faith. :)
