A Time to Gather + Freebie!

Hi Everyone,

Well, I’ve been busy, busy, but it’s time to catch up some 🙂 I hope you are all off to a great weekend! I don’t know, but the weather here in New York seems to have a  very dark cloud over it, without a break. November is never a nice month, but it’s been this way a long time, and well, I could use some heat and sunshine from the tropics! I hope it’s nice where you are.

Next week, this time, I will be traveling and preparing for my son’s rehearsal dinner, then his wedding on Saturday, the 17th….the time sure has gone by too quickly. We are having the dinner in a wine room at an amazing Italian restaurant..their food is incredible! I have designed all the centerpieces for the tables, a two-sided cafe board, coordinating table numbers and I am putting the finishing touches on the “guest book.”  I’ve done it all from scratch – I’ve made the ball jars to look like mercury glass and the colors of the flowers are so gorgeous for fall…burgundy, fuchsia, blush, gold, rose gold. I’ve also placed battery operated “tea lights” in the bottom of the jars. The chalkboard says, “Choose a seat, not a side, we are all family once the knot is tied.” The other side says, “Tomorrow we do,” so guests will see that as they leave. The guest book is a photo box frame. It will have two photos, one of when they were dating and one for them to fill with their wedding photo. Each guest will sign a wooden heart (edges painted in gold) and drop it in the frame. I’ll gather some photos to share, once things quiet down some around here! LOL Do you do other things besides scrapbooking? I would LOVE to hear your stories…just drop a few thoughts here for everyone to get ideas! What about the holidays? What are your traditions?

As always, by popular request, I have decided to bring back a stunning jewel-toned collection perfect for the start of the holiday season. “A Time to Gather” represents the time of year when we all begin to spend quality time with our friends, family, neighbors. It’s ideal for scrapping those family get-togethers, fall outings, recipe books & cards and well, it’s always perfect for everyday moments. The best part is that it is on sale until Monday, November 12th!

Here are some previews and creative team inspiration:

Commercial Use, New Releases, Update

Pickle Barrel Update + New Shabby Chic Flowers!

Hi Everyone!

Do any of you like to go to antique stores or garage sales to find that “hidden gem” for either your home or your scrapbooking? I sure do, and I tend to reserve that time for the fall or winter when there is so much to choose from. Living near the Woodstock and ski areas, summers around here are packed with tourists, but when things slow down, I go shopping!

I love to look for anything that strikes me. It could be a mirror (did I ever find a beauty for $12.00!) or the little things like buttons…nothing like well made, vintage buttons!

Well, I recently found a bag of random goodies, and in it I found ribbons, lace, buttons, and silk and paper flowers. I picked the best ones for you and extracted them for commercial use. Remember, you can use these for anything but CU4CU or on other websites – no special license required! I like to keep my CU stuff easy to use without all the legal stuff because our hobby is supposed to be fun!

You can get these pretties at 30% off, and I’ve also included the first volume in the sale. This is for a limited time only!

Additionally, October’s Pickle Barrel has been postponed until next week…there is some information below, along with the fun color palette!

Here is a peek at my shabby chic flowers:

Be on the lookout for next week’s Pickle Barrel!

Denim and Flowers + FWP + Gift

Hi Everyone!

The leaves here in the mountains of New York are quickly changing…although, the weather has been crazy. It’s been a very rainy season (since Spring!) and it’s been HOT and humid at 80º …. that could have been the last of it, as it seems it will be much, much cooler in the coming weeks! I hope it’s beautiful wherever you are.

I have received a lot of e-mails with regards as to whether or not I will be bringing back all of my previously sold collections. I will be bringing a few back, but not all.  Just a few to give you the opportunity on an “off week” for me, and perhaps, it will be new to many of you! It will be seasonal, so be on the lookout! 🙂 Denim and Flowers is one that is fairly new, but highly requested! Thank you for writing! 😉

As with all my collections, both new and old, I put the highest standard possible into my designs. In them, you will find all unique items, papers, etc., all with the highest quality control to make your memories last a lifetime.  Additionally, in not repeating items, you get so much more for your money….I hope you agree. 🙂

My Denim and Flowers Collection (also available separately or as a kit) has that “jeans kind of day” feeling , and although casual, it can be versatile enough for more formal occasions such as a country wedding! I’m thinking everything from autumn outings like, apple picking, hayrides, long drives, rodeos and other harvest activities! Here are a few previews and CT inspiration:

Until next time…

Hello Summer – Collection and Gift!

Hello Everyone!

I’m writing this here from the beautiful mountains of Upstate New York, where we have literally been under a “tropical depression” for a month… hmm, very odd weather for sure! Today has been the first bright sunny day and I’m so grateful for that! Time to dry out! I hope it’s beautiful wherever you are.

I’m here to share a few things, including my NEW Collection, “Hello Summer.”  Think of the lazy days of summer, picnics, family gatherings, fresh summer markets, days at the lake or beach and so much more! My kits are always designed to work with all year long, regardless of theme. You will also find all unique items, with the rare repeat, such as a ribbon. So much more for your money and creativity!

I have so many stunning layouts from this to show you, please take a moment to check out my new gallery at PickleBerryPop and Facebook, where I’ve shared as many as I can.

This collection (and my entire store) is on sale at 40 – 53% off (always save more on bundles) until August 19th! These will not be priced lower in my new shoppe that is now available exclusively at PickleBerryPop!

Here is a preview with some creative team inpiriation:
