Rain, Rain

Something else I've been mucking around with....

Fairy Rain

I found these beautiful Fae posers on Outlaw by Designs pay to use archive and decided I wanted to do something with them. Got a great pallet. Still don't have a name for the kit yet. "Summer Storm" but it's a sping that won't work.

Fairy Rain

Did this one for Nette of Nette's NightOwl Works with the owl on it. There's also a flying cat in the kit but she's not made it to any of the tags. Still some work to do on it as I haven't done bows and the like yet.

Sin City Tutorials

Mary Richardson sent me three fab tags (and tutorials, w00t!) using my Sin City taggers kit.

This kit is still FTU, but you need to grab it by Sunday, 28 February. Because after that, it's headed to my stores!

Vegas Style

You can find the tut for this at Vegas Style

Sin City

I thought this was a Street Scenes tube but it's not.'s MPT so I guess I should go check it out. I really like this one!

You can find the tutorial for this tag HERE.

Full House

And you can try this one HERE.

I had actually started out to do some of my own but ended up getting side tracked by absentee store owner who except us to drop everything and product collab kits at the drop of a dime. (Yeah, it's opt-in, but I don't the same commission rate if I don't opt-in, now do I?)

So I've I'd done ONE tutorial using Jessica's Sin City sampler:

Aces & Eights

THAT is a Street Scenes tube, don't you know! Try this tutorial for yourself (it's pretty easy) at Di Before Dawn tutorials.

Make sure you grab the Sin City blog train freebies this weekend. Othewise you're gonna miss out, and you'll be sorrr-rry! LOL!

Midnight Surprise

Spring Break Fever...

A peak at an upcoming kit I'm working on. I don't think I've ever seen a kit for Spring Break before. Gotta be different. Besides, how many designers live in a spring break town?

Spring Break Fever

And I LUV that Garv tube...don't you?

FUZZY BUNNIES! Don't you just love 'em? This is the preview for my part of the collab for Aussie Scrap Designs.

Bunny Hop Preview

I know, I know. It IS Rufus the cat, but there's bunnies in there too. Believe me, there are!

And...I dunno...Did I post this one already?

Part of the upcoming collab at Just4Taggers which is called "A Spring Garden".

A Spring Garden

Not my usually cuppa Joe, however I do have to say that the kits I've seen coming through are just adorable. This should be available very shortly. Spring Fever will be out at or around the beginning of March and Bunny Hop isn't due out until the beginning of April. So you'll have to wait for that one.

How wild is that?

I had just listed my Wild Horses taggers kit at Aussie Scrap Designs late last night, and when I got back from lunch today (still penniless as the ATM is not working) I found this beautiful tag in my mail box from Bev at HorsePlay's Pasture.

Give a horse...

You can find the tutorial for this beauty HERE.

Bev is on the Aussie Scrap Creative Team. All my kits are on sale there, at least 25% off, so be sure to stop by.

Thanks again Bev, you really made my day!

(Now, if I could only locate a working ATM....)
