About Me

I am a techno/gadget freak. I love almost anything that has to do with computers and software. I have an engineering background, but I haven't worked in that field for over 10 years. I married my wonderful husband in September 2004 and look forward to spending every single day of the rest of my life with him. I love cats and even call myself "Cat".

My New Newsletter...

Hi everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  I'll be sending out my first newsletter on (or as close to it as possible) April 1st.  I'll be including tips on different scrapbooking softwares, tutorials, and of course a freebie here and there.  Needless to say, my grand kick off of the new store newsletter will include an EXCLUSIVE Cat Scrap Fever freebie.  If you want in on the fun and what all else the newsletter will be delivering, you can sign up here.  I hope you will.

Also, just wanted your opinion on my new logo:

What do you think?  Too plain?  Too much wording?  I'd love to hear what you think.

That's everything for today.

Talk to you later...

New Layouts

Hi everyone!  So, do you have any green plans this weekend?  I'm going to make some corned beef sandwiches, maybe.  That's about as much St. Patrick's Day celebrating we do.  I don't go in for all the green beer and "kiss me, I'm Irish" stuff, but I love all the green (one of my favourite colours) and all the cute little leprechauns.  So, if you have plans and plan on taking a lot of pictures, I have the kit for you.  My new kit to open my new store with is the Lucky Charm kit.  Its full of lots of green (and a little pink and white thrown in) with lots of embellishments.  Here is a preview of what's in the kit:

Its a fairly big kit, and not everything is shown in the preview.  All together, there is over 50 pieces to the kit. You can purchase this kit here:  Lucky Charm Kit.

There are some non-themed elements to this kit that make it very versatile and can be used for any occasion. Here are a few layouts I made with this kit just to give you an idea of how nicely the elements come together.

My beautiful cousin Angela with her 3 children (the 4th hadn't been born yet - whew! 4 kids).

My BFF's second grandson:

And, my cute little Mitzy.  The light was refracted as it shone through the living room window and Mitzy just happened to be sleeping on her (my) woobie on the couch and the little rainbow fell across her face.  It was so pretty and I'm glad she didn't hear the camera start up, otherwise she would have bolted.  She doesn't like having her picture taken anymore.

So that's it for today.  Come check out my new store.  I'll be adding a lot more things as time goes by.  I probably won't be posting as much on this blog since most of my stuff will be on the new store blog.  You can also come and see what's happening there.  My new blog has the same name, just a new place.  You can find the new hang out here:  Cat Scrap Fever Blog

Talk to you later...

Some really big news!!!!!!

Ok, so I hinted a couple times here and there about something (or a couple things) that I was working on over the last couple weeks.  Well..... its done.... and ready to reveal!  

Its taken awhile for me to get the courage up to do this.  I know its a tough market, but really I'm not in it to make a fortune (because I know I won't).  I really like designing and rather than have this stuff just sitting on my hard drive not doing anything for me, I thought now is the time to get back into a store.  Then I thought, why not my own store.  So the journey began.  I really would love to see you all stop by and take a look. If you're intersted, you can even sign up for my newsletter.  I'm hoping to have the first issue ready for press for the first of April.  I have big plans for this new place. Another thing is I will be moving my blog to the one associated with the store and probably just keep this one for my personal stuff.  So I will still be around, but all my craft stuff will be on the store blog now.  I'll leave this blog up because there's a lot of stuff here that I people still access (like the Silhouette tutorials - those one's are my most popular posts). 

So that's it.  I'm wiped out.  It was a long, long day yesterday loading the few things into the store.  If you head over and take a look, there is also a freebie page.  I have some new stuff there for you. 

Hope to see you soon at the new place!

New Challenge Freebie

Hi everyone!  Some of you might remember me mentioning a site I've been hanging out at lately.  Its called Pixel Scrappers.  I found it a couple years ago, but never really looked around to see what was happening. Well, I happened upon the site again, and I decided to take a look around.  I'm glad I did.  Its a great community with lots of digi freebies (personal use & commercial use).  There are a lot of great tutorials and, what I've been involved in lately, are the challenges.  Specifically, the designer challenges.  I want to get back into designing again, and this has given me the little pick up I needed to get going.  I've been working on getting a store set up, so you all can check that out, but I'll let you know when its ready and open for business. :)  In the meantime, I played along with the latest designer challenge at Pixel Scrappers, which was to make an add-on element for the Spring Fields kit (I love the colours).  Here is my addition to the kit:

There are two files available (packed together).  The first one is a sequin and glitter spray, and the second one is sponged background spray.  The sponged spray is quite subtle and a little hard to see, so I suggest you click on the preview to make it bigger so you can see the detail. You can pick up this add-on here:  CSF Spring Fields Add-on Freebie

I hope you like it and if you do use it, I would love to see what you did with it, so let me know. :)

That's all for today...
