Of course we have sneak peeks of what's in store for August.. so check it out below! Hope you are enjoying your summer.

Member Gallery Inspiration!

Each month we are going to feature layouts from our Members gallery in our newsletter! It's a great place to get inspiration from fellow subscribers on how to use your kits!  So start uploading your layouts today! you just might find your layout in our next newsletter! 

A long time subscriber , CharlotteCramer   created this layout using bits and pieces from last years October kit! I love the multi-photos on this layout! Great idea for all of those wallet size pictures! Thanks girl for sharing!

LVamy  created this bright and fun layout using our February Main kit! I love that she used the mesh we included as an accent down the side of the paper strips. I also loved how she used the sequins trim as flower stems! Brilliant!!   








Ali, one of our Artist Team members has created some adorable layouts (and cards) using our July main kit, that we have added to our Artist Gallery! Here are just a couple shown at the left! Make sure you check them all out in the Artist Gallery of our website. Remember, if you are looking for inspiration each month on how to use your main kit and project kits,  make sure you check out the Artist Gallery for creative layouts posted by our Artist Team Members!
I am excited about our Sponsor this week! So much so, that I just had to do a little tid bit about her WONDERFUL products! Knitty Bitties is a fabulous Etsy shop owned by Andrea! She has a wonderful variety of handmade treasures, from camera straps, to fabric notebook covers.. to hair ties with handmade fabric flowers and more! And Guess what?? THIS week she is offering two limited edition items just for my Scarlet Lime gals! She has created a limited edition camera strap, as well as a limited Edition "Happy Little List Taker" (which is a fabric covered book that holds a pen and a notebook inside!) in the Scarlet Lime colors!  They are VERY limited, SO if you aren't able to get one that was already listed,  she has agreed to do more orders for both the books and the camera straps. If you aren't able to get yours in time, you can e-mail her at knittybitties@gmail.com , to be put on the list to have one custom made!  I already ordered mine! The fabrics she used are to die for!

Also she is doing a fun little offer for our newsletter readers! If you make a purchase, and mention the code " ILOVESC"  in the notes to seller,  you will receive a "Happy Little Key Fob" (as shown in middle picture above), FREE! 

She is also sponsoring our giveaway this month, so make sure you check out below to find out what it is she is giving away and how to get signed up for that!

 Part of summer is remembering our childhood, and re-creating some of those memories in our adulthood!  One of the ways I like to do that is through scrapbooking.  I love this kit because it reminds me so much of my childhood old school funk meets retro flair! ! It has some of the BRAND new papers from Sassafras, just released THIS MONTH! It also includes new papers from Pebbles Inc, Making Memories and Collage Press!  I wanted to keep with the retro feel with the stamp, so I had Jayla create one  that did just that! So cute! And wait until you see all the fun embellishments included in this kit as well! You are going to love it! Perfect for summertime photos!

We have ordered  extra kits again  this month, so we have open spots for August AND we hope to have one time purchases available on the 1st as well! If you are interested in becoming a subscriber simply e-mail me at christytomlinson@gmail.com  to find out how! Remember also to check back on the 1st of August to see the full reveal of this kit!


People are always e-mailing me asking for "boy" kits and this month we have delivered! This kit is perfect for those men (and boys) in your life! You should see the cute album we make using it! It's full of cute boyish products, but the great thing is, you can totally use this kit for summertime photos as well! So ladies.. if you have been wanting a more boyish kit, here is your chance! ( which by the way, our main kit this month  is great for boys too!).

I love the stamp Jayla did for this too, it's REALLY versatile and could be used for so many themes including boys! Can't wait for the 1st to see the full reveal of all the products in this kit! Lots of yummy goodies!
