New FCC Requirement for Bloggers

Hi Everyone,
It's been a while since I posted here. I haven't been doing the scrapbooking a lot lately since I've recently moved, but have plans to start again soon. I really do miss creating kits.

I learned of a new FCC requirement that apparently just took effect today that requires bloggers to disclose if they are making any money or free products off their blog posts. Apparently those who don't comply could face a fine of $11,000 per occurance! Anyway, just to be on the safe side, I thought I would disclose that I don't make any money directly from this blog website. The only money I make is if someone were to go to one of my online stores and purchase one of my kits.

Cottage Rose Kit -- Just in Time for Valentines Day!

Hi Everyone! I just finished loading my latest kit, Cottage Rose, onto my stores at Cottage Scrapbooks, The Digi Boutique, and The Scrap Vault

I simply LOVE the old victorian style!  A couple years ago, I began collecting original vintage illustrations.  When I acquired an original copy (more than 100 years old) of two adorable little girls playing dressup, I knew I had to make a kit with it!  You'll find that and everything else you need included in this huge kit (20 papers and 72 elements).

I added some extra special goodies for you on this one, including a fan, very much like the card fans traded during the victorian era.  I am also including an individual fan blade, with which you can create your own greeting card to print and assemble (simply secure them together using a brad).  Fan cards are fun to give your loved ones... great for Valentines Day!  The cool thing about this fan is you can customize it by adding your own pictures in each blade.  

As always, I also include some of my loveable "scrap bears" for you to play with!  This kit is available for personal use only.  There a lots of elements and several papers that I was not able to show in the preview.  Note that elements do not include the outside drop shadows, and elements in the previews are not shown to scale.  To see a complete list of what is included, view the kit in one of my stores (click one of the links above.)  Thanks for looking!

Boo Bear Kit

Hi everyone!  I just posted my newest kit, Boo Bear, in my store at Cottage Scrapbooks.  I am really excited about this kit.  It sure took a while to get it all put together.  I meant to actually finish it about a month ago in time for Halloween, but I couldn't stop making elements!  The kit is HUGE, containing approximately 175 megabytes of goodies, including 20 papers and 84 elements!  Check it out HERE.
