Confession, Sneak Peek, and a Freebie

Confession time.  I am addicted to Connie’s kits and templates.  I can’t help myself.  Every single one has to find it’s way into my cart and then onto my computer.  It’s an addiction that I do not plan on seeking intervention for so don’t even bother offering.  If you find yourself with this affliction then I wish you many smiles and many happy hours scrapping!  I will be more than happy to aid you in your quest for locating all the greatness that Connie has to offer.   Matter of fact….

Project 2015 February just released yesterday and it is vibrant, fun, and AMAZING!  You know the best deals are to be had when Connie’s bundles hit the stores for the first week, right?  (Well, there are those very RARE sales that happen but denying yourself the privilege of playing with Project 2015 for one of those is insane and I wouldn’t recommend it.  I mean it could be a whole year of waiting and that would just be cruel and unusual punishment!)  Connie has two special bundles to help you save time and money on this collection.  First, there’s the Mega Stash Bundle where you get the kit, border clusters, date pack, journal cards, predeco papers, P2015 quick pages, templates, and the extra paper pack.  Second, there’s the Art Journal AddOn Bundle that is extraordinary!  I can not even begin to tell you how much I LOVE the Art Journal packs!!

I got to share a few inspiration layouts yesterday from Connie’s Creative Team and I’m happy to get to share a few more today.  There’s still more on their way for next week and I hope you find one that gets your creativity jump started.  Today’s layouts show you the versatility of this collection.

Tomorrow is February 1st and that means the Ginger Scraps Buffet Sale kicks off!  I have a sneak peek of what Connie has in store for you!  It’s a gentle and sweet collection that I think many of you are going to love.

Today’s the LAST day to pick up the Retiring Products before they are gone forever.  SOB!!!!  I still can’t believe I’m having to say good-bye to “We Are Family.”  Nope, I still haven’t changed out my timeline cover but since I picked up the Project 2015 February ones I plan on tackling that right after finishing up this post.  Go snag what you are missing now before it’s too late!

I’m going to come back later with a freebie.  My stomach is growling and the smell of breakfast is distracting me.  My wonderful husband cooked breakfast this morning and it’s ready!  If I don’t get the freebie finished before we head off to the Mesquite Symphony concert we’re attending this evening, I’ll make sure I post it before I go to bed tonight.  I plan on getting it done this afternoon but sometimes I hit a creative block where other times everything just falls into place.  I have something in mind if I can just find the right words/quote/thoughts to make it reality.

Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Project 2015 February is here!!!!

I didn’t have anyone guess about the theme of today’s new release yesterday (at least not by 8:30 pm CST).  Either Connie had you totally stumped or you were all super busy and just didn’t get around to it.  That’s okay, it happens.  I know I felt like Thursday was a marathon.  I won’t tease you any further about the theme, instead I’m just going to show you!

cap_P2015FebMS

Fun vibrant colors combined with beautiful papers and elements make Project 2015 February a must have for your stash!  Pick up all these pieces in the Mega Stash Bundle or as separate packs.  Either way you save 40% off this week!  Connie has an add on Art Journal Addon Bundle, too!  I love all of it!!!  These remind me of when I was in school and we would decorate our book covers.  So much fun!!

cap_P2015FebAJB

There are also these other fantastic AddOn packs to take your next project to even greater levels of fabulous!

Sunday Funday! It's Jigsaw Puzzle time again!

Morning everyone!  Hope you are all feeling great today.  We'll start off with the solution to last week's Hidden Mickey layout and announce the winner.  There were only two Hidden Mickey's and I admitted right up front that I adjusted opacity.  But you all found them!!  I hid them in the wood layers on the table!  Next to the hat (not UNDER the hat, France!  LOL!) The two Hidden Mickey's are circled in red.



Drum roll please!  According to the randomizer, our winner from 01-18-2015 is..... SANDRA GRIMM.  I'll be sending out coupons as soon as I schedule this post!!  Congratulations, Sandra!  And it was super to see some new names playing along.

On the same line of unlikely kits to scrap Disney....  this week we are having a twist on the Jigsaw Puzzle!!   I went to Connie's gallery at Gotta Pixel.  Did a little cruising and I selected a Disney layout by tammymorgan.   Tammy used an unlikely kit for her layout ... but it worked, beautifully.  Prime example of what I have been saying all along. It's all about color matching.  You don't need a bona fide Disney-ish kit to scrap Disney and have it look great! Nope. Not one bit!  So your challenge this week is to solve the puzzle and then send me the name of the kit that tammymorgan used to complete her layout!    Easy peasy, right? By the way, when you go looking for Tammy's layout, be sure to leave her a little love.

A couple of quick reminders about the Jigsaw Puzzle. You do not need to leave to Connie's blog to complete the puzzle. You do need Flash installed.  Flash means you won't be able to use a mobile device for this one, so grab some coffee and your computer for a little while.  Everyone who plays along receives a $1 coupon to Connie's store.  All correct answers ( and you ladies have been darn good about making sure everyone's answer is right!) go into the list randomizer and bingo! One lucky ducky wins the $10 coupon to Connie's store.   Email your answers to me at coyotelady(at)gmail(dot)com by Friday, January 30th at 9 PM Eastern. If you have any questions, you can drop me an email or post a comment here. Do not post answers in a comment though!   Here's the puzzle:

Have fun. Wishing you all a great week! See you next Sunday Funday!
