Welcome to the Scarlet Lime Newsletter
I still can't believe it's
seriously APRIL! I mean time is just flying this year... my kids get out
of school NEXT month and then summer is here! (well maybe not the
actual WARMTH of summer! LOL.. but no more school!! ).. Well
before we get too ahead of ourselves, let's get back to April! LOL. So
this month we have a fun stamp/kit sale in store for you! Remember, in
order to get first dibs on the stamps and kits for sale, you will need
to be signed up for our newsletters, because we will be sending out a
preview of what's for sale to our newsletter subscribers on the night of
the 15th! I will actually be out of town that night, but thanks to a few
fabulous friends, we have started using a new newsletter service that
allows us to create e-mails and newsletters and have them scheduled to
be sent out on a certain day and time! So cool!
Okay so again, here are the
details of the stamp/kit sale. First off, the sale will not be held on
our website. It will actually all be done on my SIL's Esty site
Tattered Tags. We are sold out of
all of our past kits, BUT each month we always seem to have extra
bits and pieces that make up the kits. Sometimes it's rubons, sometimes
paper.. chipboard etc. So we are going to combine all of the bits and
pieces from past kits to create one of a kind kits for sale . PLUS we
will be selling any stamps we have left over from past kits. We don't
have them from all past kits, but we do have them from some! So here's
how it's going to work... You will receive an e-mail from me on
the night of the 15th, with pictures and names of each stamp and kit
available. The next step, is for you to send my SIL, Brooke, an e-mail
letting her know which items you want and then she will create a custom
listing for you with those items, in her Esty shop. where you will
go and purchase the custom order. . After all the custom orders are
done, she will then list any products still available on her Etsy site
for single purchase. We thought this way would be easiest so she could
combine shipping on the items you want. All the prices and shipping
details will be in the e-mail you get from me. and.. I just want
to tell Brook THANK YOU for doing this for Ben and I! She Rocks! So be
nice to her okay? LOL..
Well I KNOW you have all been
dying to see what's in store for May.. and I am excited to tell you we
have some FUN peeks in store for you in this newsletter. This thing is
FULL of inspiration too as well as a new feature we will have once a
month in our newsletters! You will have to check it out below to see all
the fun! Thanks for everyone participating in the newsletter this week!
I hope you all have a wonderful
week.. and happy scrappin...
Hugs to you all!

Scarlet Lime Sketches
now I can't wait to see what the rest of you Scarlet Lime gals come
up with using this sketch!
We have started a Flickr Photo group, where you can sign up and
share photos and do discussions! So let's see them :)
Here is our group
Can't wait to see you there!
This adorable mobile
was created by
Kesterson! She used the March main kit to decorate these cute
birds she hung from a clothes hanger! LOVE it.. Love the little
details in each one.
She also created this simple yet fun layout below about her first
Apartment with her new husband! Isn't that picture just so romantic!
Love pictures that tell a story. Thanks Jessica for sharing this
sent me this layout she did which actually combined
TWO of our kits together! Our March project kit and our March mini
kit! I love the flowers she created and the sun coming off the top
of the page! Thanks girl!
Vanessa Molina is such a hoot to
talk to! I loved this layout she shared with me using the March main
kit. I like how she created the center boarder using strips of
paper. It really does bring your attention right to the middle of
the page where the picture and journaling is!
Jenny Alfonso shared this layout with me and I
love the idea of overlapping the February rubons on top of her
journaling! Also loved the picture on this layout. Such an inspiring
layout to look at! Thanks for sharing it girl :)
So who's ready for more Spring?
I am, especially since we haven't gotten rid of our snow yet! LOL.. One
of my all time favorite color combinations is red, yellow, green and
black and so when I was at CHA and saw all these patterns from
different manufactures, I was GIDDY! I knew it would create the perfect
kit for May! It's perfect for spring photos, but also wonderful for all
those Mother Day's photos (or gifts) you might be scrappin!
stamp.. well once again, Chrissy Le has such a wonderful eye for what's
in right now. She sent me this woodgrain texture stamp and I LOVED it. I
started thinking about all the possibilities I could use it on, to add
unexpected texture too.. like rubons, chipboard, flowers, labels, paper.. so
many ideas! We have made sure we've also include lots of fun things for
you to use the stamp on too!
Speaking of woodgrain.. I have
to give a little shout out to my SIL's etsy shop
I know I already mentioned her alot today.. but I was visiting her
site this past weekend and saw the CUTEST
and tags she listed on there!.. holy cow talk about cute! I
NEED THEM!! LOL.. You have to check them out!
Okay, I have to admit our kits
are a bit feminine sometimes but I was so inspired when I
attended CHA by some of the lines out there for men and boys, that I
KNEW for May I wanted to do a kit that was not only masculine, but
also a project kit, that could be used for upcoming gift ideas for
Father's Day! This kit is perfect for creating a gift for those
special "men" in your life, to let them know how much you love
them.... husbands, brothers, fathers, sons.. I plan on making two of
them! One for my husband, but also one all about my boys that I can
keep for me! We will show you how to create ALL 10 pages of this "top
10" mini album. And you will LOVE the mini album we are using for
it... but you will have to wait until next newsletter to see what it
Again, LOVE this stamp
designed by Chrissy Le! SO into patterns and textures right now and
love how she combined different textures all within one stamp. This
will be a perfect background for alot of the products we are using in
this kit! Oh I can't wait to show you what else we have in store.. so
So I am totally into yellow
right now. Such a bright cheerful color! When I saw this floral
pattern by My Minds Eye, I was hooked! While it is somewhat muted, I
knew if I paired it with other bright papers with the same color scheme,
it would make a perfect Scarlet Lime kit!
The stamp included in this kit
is so versatile! Not only can you include your journaling in it, but
also the date, to record when it happened! And as always, can gotta love
the mini kit price! :)
well it seems like forever since
our last giveaway! So let's make this one good! I had a little bit of
time last week to go through all of my scrapbooking stuff and really
clean house. I couldn't believe all the fun goodies I found in my
drawers and baskets! LOL.. I know I can't ever use them all, so I
thought they would make for a fun giveaway! .. So.. as you know.. to get
entered to win, simply post on today's blog post and on Friday of this
week, we will draw out 2 winners names!
So again, All you have to do is post on
blog post to get entered to win! !
