New - CU Something Old Vol. 1!

Hello all! I think I'm done with the blog right now - if anything is out of place, let me know! I'll have a couple of friends check it but I'm pretty sure that it's finished. I'm getting pretty good at redoing my blog, all in all that took about half a day to do!

I have a good friend coming over tonight to play a little rock band so before she gets here I wanted to show you something new I have in my store today!

Something old, something new...Whether it's old or new, these buttons will add the perfect
touch of antiquity to your next project.

With gorgeous pearl-like centers, shiny gold accents, and intricate patterns, these buttons
will take you right back to those days of playing with your mother's or grandmother's
sewing notions. Included are 24 buttons, scanned and extracted by myself. They are in
their original colors only, and may be included in any project as-is. They are shown in
their original sizes, with no drop shadows included.

These buttons are just gorgeous. I've found myself going to them over and over the past couple weeks just to add something girly and cute to items! These buttons aren't just good for heritage kits and layouts - they're perfect for girly kits and layouts as well. I'm sure you could find multiple uses for these buttons.

The best part is, until tomorrow night, they're included in my 30% off sale at Scrappity-Doo-Dah - only until tomorrow night, so head there fast!

Also I promised you a sneak peek of a new collab so a sneak peek is what you're going to get!

This is a fabulous, girly, jam-packed collab with a wonderful designer (hint: she's on my CT!). We haven't set a release date just yet, but it will be very soon. And it will be twice as fabulous because a good designer friend of ours will be releasing a kit at the same time that matches perfectly with this one. You definitely won't want to miss it.

I know I said "CT Inspiration" but with said friend coming over any minute now and it almost being dinner time, I have to run. But I will try to come back tomorrow and show you some of their spectacular layouts - at the latest, Wednesday! Did you realize that Week 3 of the CT Spotlight is coming up on Wednesday? Mark your calendars, I have a wonderful Q&A and another freebie from one of my excellent CT members!

Gotta run! Happy scrapping everyone!


Under Construction!

Hey all! Just wanted to stop and let you know that my blog is undergoing another makeover. I hope to be done by tonight but things might be out of place the whole weekend - if something looks a little funny, it will be fixed soon! I'll be back sometime this weekend with CT inspiration and a sneak peek at a new collab that is releasing soon! Thanks!


CT Spotlight Week 2 and Freebie!

My apologies for the lateness on Week 2! I intended to put this up first a couple of weeks ago, and then the stuff with Scrapable happened. Then I intended to put this up last night, but I forgot until minutes before I got into bed. I was way too tired to make it happen last night but here it is - finally!

If you need a reminder (and want another freebie!), here's a link to Spotlight Week 1 - Jaya.

And without further ado, I introduce you to one of my first CT members, Sue, aka MumaSue!

Tell me a little bit about yourself.

Hey everyone, my name is Sue. I originally lived in the UK and moved over here to be with my partner. We have a gorgeous little tomboy named Amelia who is so independent and yes she is the main inspiration for my scrapping. I've loved art and design ever since school where I took art and ceramics. Then I gained a diploma in general art and design and moved up to try my hand at jewelry design. After doing a 180 degree turn because my artistic spark was literally crushed I gained a diploma in pharmaceutical science and became a pharmacy technician. But over the years and with the encouragement of my man …. here I am back with one of the loves of my life but going digital this time. It is the age of the puter afterall :)

So how long have you been digital scrapbooking?

Since Oct-Nov 06 … I wanted a way to send more than just photos to my mum in the UK.

Did you ever do any traditional paper scrapbooking? What made you switch? Do you still do any paper scrapbooking?

I put some photos and comments in a folder once about my vacation to Iceland …. does that count? Other than that no I have never paper scraped. I think I'd stick my fingers together and make a worse mess than my daughter.

Do you have any other hobbies?

I love photography even though my talent is not that great LOL.

Also love reading fantasy and Sci-Fi esp if its humorous like the Discworld series or M.Y.T.H. Inc. series. Cooking is great fun especially when shared with my partner and now my daughter is getting to the age where she wants to join in … as long as its not messy LOL, she can be so prissy at times.

What do you find yourself scrapbooking the most - your kids, pets, significant other, family, etc?

Definitely my little girl but I have started a wedding book for my niece and she also loves it when I scrap her little boy.

What couldn't you live without when you make a layout? For example, undo, a certain element, a program, etc?

The blend modes in my graphics software[Paint Shop Pro]. I have found some stunning effects when using those.

Do you gravitate towards any certain color or style when you make a layout?

Not sure if I stick to one style …. I have described my style as a mishmash of several in the past. Probably a little graphic in there as well as freestyle with a touch of traditional and sometimes I like to go grungy or add some glitz and go shabby Chic. Oh yeah a mishmash alright LOL.

Do you do anything on the side, such as designing, designer services, scrap-4-hire? Don't forget to include a link or something so we can pay you a visit!

I have created the odd freebie kit here and there but prefer to make the scrapbook pages. I am thinking of making greeting cards but working out the logistics of it first.

Where's your blog?

It be right here :) http://mumasdelights.blogspot.com/ and I need to post more often, get some LO's in there and get my project 365 off my camera.

Who's your favorite designer (other than Pixiemama)? Give them a plug - include a link to their shop!

Dang just one ….. oh boy. It would have to be Nicole Young, just adore her whimsical style mixed with glitter and glitz. So much fun to play with and you can find her store here ….


Tell us one thing about yourself that very few people know.

I am adopted :) …. I was given up at birth and went to my new family at 12 weeks old.

Tell us one thing about yourself that is unique or weird.

I have no lateral incisors which bring my canines forward much to the amusement of my daughter who likes to think I am a vampire LOL

What's your favorite layout that you've made?

Oh boy this is a tough one …. but I think its one I created very recently for my niece.


Give us a link to a layout of yours that has very few comments so we can leave you a little love.

This one of my niece at her wedding, yes it was non traditional on the wedding side but I still love the kit and the photos. The Kiss …...


Anything else you'd like to add?

Yep :) … Here is a freebie. Don't ya just love freebies?

Isn't she just fabulous? I love having her on my CT, she's always hard at work and her layouts are so fabulous - she's also a big fibber on her photography, it's amazing what she can do with photo effects - I thought she owned a DSLR camera until she told me it's really a point-and-shoot that she spices up with photo effects. She really must give out some tutorials or photo actions/styles for the rest of us!

Okay now on to the freebie. Sue created this cluster frame out of the items in my P365 kit. I apologize to all of you - this is one kit I haven't yet gotten up in my shop yet. It's such a large kit that it will take an entire day to re-QC, re-preview, re-zip, and re-upload. But I have full intentions to get it up in the next couple of weeks, so make sure to check back! But rather than keep you from a freebie so you can sample this great kit, I'm giving it to you today! Here's a preview:

The realistic shadows are included, and the whole thing is a .png file. But it's such a beautiful cluster!

Download Here

Also, don't forget that my sale is still going on, through the entire week and weekend. 35% off my whole store at Scrappity-Doo-Dah! I've got some brand new items up, go check them out!

Have fun with your freebie and have a great day!


It's Finally Time!...

So it's finally time! I'm so excited to announce to you that my new store is....

That's right! I'm now located at Scrappity-Doo-Dah.com!

You guys are so good! Either that or I made the game wayyy too easy LOL! I am so incredibly excited to be selling at Scrappity-Doo-Dah.com, I am among some wonderful, amazing, incredibly talented ladies. They have been so pleasant these past few weeks and I'm so proud to be able to join them at this wonderful store!

I know you guys are really looking forward to knowing who the contest winners are, so without further ado...

I used RANDOM.org to generate two numbers between 1 and 11 (the number of entries I received) and the winners are:

Comments numbers 2 and 11, which are Manda and Babybear Scraps! Congratulations girls, I will be emailing you soon with the coupon code to receive your $5 coupon to my shop, good for any PU/S4H/S4O items (CU excluded)!

For the rest of you, don't fret! My new shop is 35% off for the whole week (including all CU items). The discount will show up in your cart when you check out.

I've got some beautiful new goodies up in my brand new shop, including the items that you see above in the grand opening ad. I've got a new kit, "Frosty Freezy", just in time for the freezing cold weather and snow that has hit seemingly all of us recently, and some brand new CU Layered Overlays and CU Doodles.

Here are some sneak peeks - you have to head to my store to check out the full preview!

I have just fallen in love with this new kit, my CT have fallen in love with it, and I hope you will too! It has some gorgeous wintery colors in it, perfect for both boys and girls, and the elements will make you want to bundle up in a sweater with a cup of cocoa and scrap the night away! (At least it does me! lol!)

I have some awesome new things coming up in the next few weeks. I'm working on a fantastic new collab with a wonderful designer, and I'm working on putting together a newsletter. So if you're a fan of me, be on the lookout for that to pop up because I will put out a great freebie in the first issue!

I'll be back Wednesday with some brand new CT inspiration and as promised, I'll also bring back the CT Spotlight! Until then, happy scrapping!


Let's Play a Game!

Hello everyone! Sorry it's been a while since I've posted, without a shop there's really been nothing to post about. I've postponed the CT Spotlights by a couple of weeks until we get back into the swing of things, and me and my team have been busy little bees!

You see, since the little hiccup at Scrapable I've was displaced from my digital home. Fortunately I found a home very quickly and I've been very busy preparing for my opening. And I'm pleased to announce that it's almost time!

So let's play a little game!

Let's Play a Game!
Where in the Digi-World Will Pixiemama Be?

I'm opening a new shop soon! Can you figure out where I'll be? Look closely and there's a hint! Two (2) lucky guessers will each win a $5 coupon to my new shop!

Yep, that's right! I'm opening up my new shop in the next few days and I'm giving you a chance to win a $5 coupon to my new shop. All you have to do is correctly guess what store I'm moving into in digi-land!

If you look closely in the ad, there's even a hint!

All you have to do is leave me a comment here on this post, giving me your best guess. Each customer is allowed only one (1) guess, please. In your comment, please leave a valid e-mail address, so I can contact you with your prize if you are chosen. If you do not leave a valid e-mail for contact, you forfeit your prize and it will go to the next random answer drawn.

The contest will end Sunday at midnight EST. Winners will be randomly drawn (using Random.org) from all correct answers. If there are not enough correct answers, 2 winners will be drawn from all guesses - if there is only one correct guess, that person will receive the prize and another winner will be drawn from remaining guesses. Well, you get it lol. Coupons will only be good for PU/S4H/S4O kits, and will not be allowed on CU items.

Hurry and get your guesses in! Remember, you have until Sunday at midnight EST to post a comment with your guess, and please remember a valid e-mail address so I can e-mail your prize if you win!

Also, I want to tell you about a new site that has opened up! Do you ever wonder how to fix those pesky little quality issues that come up? Tiffany of InspiredbyDominic Designs and Amy, the owner of Scrapbook Bytes, have come together to bring you a fabulous new forum - DigiScrapQuality.com!

DigiScrap Quality Guide is aimed at helping you know what quality issues you need to look for and how to fix them before they get to your customers. You'll find resources for quality control actions, tutorials, and a forum just for designers to ask questions and get answers from other designers. DSQ is for scrappers, designers, and store owners. There's even a section for Quality Control team members to get help in knowing what the latest issues are in QCing and to discuss anything relating to their position as a QCer. Sign up today to network with other designers!

Oh, and don't forget to tweet, blog, or post on your Facebook about the contest and DSQ!

I'll be back on Monday with the winners of the contest and the reveal of the new site! I'll also have a fantastic sale and a couple new products! Have fun guessing!

With Love - Scrapable Blog Train

Unfortunately, I will not be at Scrapable any longer. Currently I am without a store, but I do have one opening very soon. I've been a busy girl repreviewing and actually working on a couple of products that will hopefully be ready in time for my grand opening.
