Gwenipooh's New Kit - 365 Days of Love

I made this card with Gwenipooh's new kit - 365 Days of Love. Can I tell you how fun this is? You can use this for your 365 project - it has some cute day labels. But I have finally realized that I'm not ready for P365 yet. I am planning to try and premake some cards this year so that when I need them I can just grab and go. Do you have a stash like that?

Here's the hybrid card I made. I'm not sure whether I will use this for Valentine's Day or to give it on a regular hard day when someone needs a little extra cheer and surprise. We'll see!

I love the colors - love the grays and whites with the baby blue and bright pink - it'd be great for boy or girl pages and Valentines. But the little flower patterns are so cute!!!

Here's a preview of the whole kit.

And Gwen has an add-on available on her blog too!

Happy Friday!

My Bloggie Plans for this Year

Since it's the beginning of the year - I've been reassessing and setting my goals. And one goal that I am making is to post more! I've been doing pretty well at posting my hybrid antics, but I want to show off more of my digi layouts here too - I realized that there really aren't any on my blog! This came to me when the DST gallery was down a couple days ago and that's where all of my layouts are displayed.... I'd like my place on the web to be a better representation of me - so look forward to more digi and hybrid goodness in 2010!

January DST Hot Product!

The Hot Product this month is one of the most fun ones I worked with so far - I love the style of the coordinating kits by Deena Rutter, Carina Gardener, and Jen Allyson!

I created a 5 x 5 January highlights book. It includes some fun journaling cards to record the memories of the month. I plan to create some January layouts and integrate them into all together into a memory mini album. I'm really looking forward to it!

Aren't the papers fun!

I also made a layout using this kit - it's really fun to integrate some of the journaling pages into a digital layout.

Check out Design House Digital for more new designs - they are opening today and I'll be heading over too!
