I Lost My Tooth - new release!!

I'm so excited to officially introduce you all to "I Lost My Tooth!" It's my newest kit and its out today!

Has your little one hit that age where baby teeth are being left under the pillow for the tooth fairy? If so, you need this kit! Versatile enough for non-tooth fairy use, too! Suitable for boys AND girls, too!

"I Lost My Tooth!" is a great kit filled with the muted primary tones of red/pink, blue, green, and yellow. It's loaded with adorable elements to help you mark the special occasion when your child starts losing his or her baby teeth. The papers (12 in all, 7 patterns/5 solids), are very neutral and with the 45 elements included, there is a lot of variety in this kit, making it suitable for projects beyond documenting the tooth fairy, as well. And, with both a "boy" and a "girl" tooth fairy, and lots of blue or pink elements, this kit can be used for both boys and girls with ease! The kit also includes a full alpha - in two colors! Glitter styles are also available separately for both Personal and Commercial use.

Here are a few more images of the kit:

And check out the beautiful layouts that my Creative Team and a couple awesome CT Guests have already created with this kit! You can click on the photo below to visit my gallery and see these beauties in closer detail, too

I love this kit - as usual, its my newest and my current favorite - hope you enjoy it, too!

March 19th New Releases and some layout inspiration!

Hi everyone! Hope this edition of my new product release newsletter finds you happy and enjoying the slow return of Spring! It was gorgeous here today, into the mid 60's, which is awesome for this time of year in the Poconos :) I only have one new release this week, but its a special one, since its the next mini kit in a series inspired by my FABULOUS Creative Team Members. This one was inspired by Bree - she chose the color palette and of course, its themed on butterflies, since she just absolutely LOVES them! Here is a preview of Bree's Butterflies, (linked to the mini kit in the store)... and make sure to read to the end of this post because I have a coordinating freebie for you!

While I'm here, I thought I'd share some of my CT's layouts with you that were made with last week's new release, Cottontail's Garden. Every time I see a new layout with the kit, I fall in love with it a little bit more! Funny how it has become one of my favorites :) Each of the following layouts is linked to the CT member's gallery, so please leave them some love! First up are two really cute layouts by my CT member, Jen - I love them both!

Then, I had the pleasure to share the kit with a few of the girls from the Digital Candy CT and this is the first one that has come in, by Yolanda - I love how her black&white photos really pop against the pastel colors in the kit!

So, I hope those layouts inspire you to pick up Cottontail's Garden and get in the Easter bunny spirit yourself! Watch later this month for the brag book album I am going to release which will coordinate with Cottontail's Garden, too! Ok, without further ado, here is the coordinating freebie to Bree's Butterflies - snag it quick because it will only be a freebie for a limited time!
