Salt Life Release & Mini Kit Freebie for the July SNP Blog Train

This month I took my first solo vacation.  I went down to Florida to visit my brother and his family.  I had so much fun spending playing on the beach and spending one on one time with my nieces!  It was hard to get back into work mode when I returned.  Luckily this month's blog train palette was perfect for helping me get my mojo back.

The colors reminded me of Florida and I immediately wanted to make a kit to scrap the photos from my vacation.  What I came up with was a fun tropical themed summer vacation kit called Salt Life...

Salt Life  will be on sale for just $2.00 for the month of July and includes 70 elements, 6 cardstocks, 24 papers and a painted wood alpha that contains upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols.

New Reach New Heights BNP Release with Freebie

I had a ton of fun working with this month's BNP colors!  I wanted to do something different so I created Reach New Heights with a fun giraffe motif. This kit can be used in so many different ways but at its heart, it is all about celebrating growth, dreams, goals and achievements. And the best part is that each portion of the Reach New Heights collection is on sale for just $1 through July 7th!

Here's a preview of the different pieces of the Reach New Heights collection...

The 60-piece element pack includes...
  • 1 Arrow
  • 1 Banner
  • 3 Bows
  • 7 buttons
  • 2 charms
  • 1 clothespin
  • 7 flowers
  • 2 leaves
  • 2 frames
  • 1 flair
  • 2 journal cards
  • 3 paint splatters
  • 4 ribbons
  • 2 ricracs
  • 2 strings
  • 2 sets of stitching
  • 1 giraffe stamp
  • 1 staple
  • 4 unique giraffe stickers
  • 2 cloud stickers
  • 1 sun sticker
  • 3 tags
  • 1 piece of tape
  • 5 word bits (Reach New Heights, Aim High, Your Attitude Determines Your Direction, Keep Your Head in the Clouds, Dream Big - Set Goals- Take Action)

This paper pack of the "Reach New Heights" collection includes 24 papers with arrow, geometric, plaid, quatrefoil, floral, sunshine, striped, circles, houndstooth, chevron, leaf, retro and graph paper patterns. All papers and cardstocks are 12 x 12 inches and 300 dpi.

The cardstock pack contains 24 basic cardstocks including 6 solid cardstocks, 6 polka dotted cardstocks, 6 chevron cardstocks and 6 giraffe-patterned cardstocks.  All cardstocks are 12 x 12 inches and 300 dpi.

The alpha pack includes uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols.

And finally, I made something special to coordinate with this collection.  While I was searching for inspiration for my new "Reach New Heights" collection, I came across a ton of cute giraffe-themed cards.  They inspired me to add a card template pack to the collection.  Included in this pack are four 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" that are perfect for quarter-fold card and four 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" templates that are perfect for half-fold cards.  Like all of my templates, this pack is available in PSD, TIF and PNG formats and is PU/S4H/S4O/CT/CU friendly so you can feel comfortable using them for any of your CU or CT work.

If you would like to try one of my card templates before buying them, head over to my Facebook page where I just added this new freebie...

(This freebie is now expired.  You can grab free with your purchase of the Reach New Heights card template pack.)
