New Release: A Pox Upon You

Last month, my poor daughter had chicken pox. We live in a country that doesn't yet vaccinate against it, so I knew it was coming. When I heard there was a bit of an epidemic in our town, I knew it was only a matter of time. 17 children from her class got them at the same time! She got them quite severely, and she was pretty miserable. Her little body is still covered in polka dots weeks later!

And, as always, I found inspiration in my child! I present my new release, A Pox Upon You:

As I was working on this kit, I kept thinking of various medical/health related things I wanted to make that didn't quite fit with the chicken pox theme. So I started making them and tucking them away. Coming soon, I'll be releasing a coordinating mini kit or two, maybe some more papers and some word art. This will be my first collection, and I am calling the collection Time To Get Ill. *chuckle* Anyone else get that?

Although A Pox Upon You is focused on chicken pox, there is plenty in the kit that could be used for any sort of "get well soon" layout. Its really a versatile kit! Here is a page I made with it:

A Pox Upon You is on sale through March 20th for only $2!!!

Be sure to check out the rest of my store as well - I have a 17% off sale for St. Patricks Day:

As always, I would love to see anything you guys may create with the kit!

Color My Heart

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I have a new release today called Color My Heart. I am describing it as a "kids arts & crafts kit masquerading as a Valentine's Day kit." My daughter spends a lot of time doing arts and crafts projects, so I needed a kit for scrapping all of those pictures!

I made a little "how to" for a fun project you can do with your kids. Feel free to download it for printing and share it with your friends!

Here is a page I made with Color My Heart:

And guess what? As a special Valentine's Day treat, Color My Heart is only $1 through Sunday, February 16th! Check out the With Love Studio Valentine's Day Sale for lots of other dollar deals!

I'm back, and I have a new release!

I apologize for the unplanned absence. Life happened, I'm sure you can all relate! And then, just to make things even better, I had some pretty dramatic computer issues. But life has calmed a bit and my computer is sorted, so I am back at it. I hope you enjoy my latest release, Plopsasaurus!

I took the name and the concept for this kit from the brilliant imagination of my three year old daughter. Several months ago, she introduced us to her imaginary monster friend Plopsasaurus, and he's been a member of the family ever since! He taught her to roar, and he protects her from the bad monsters. He also tends to get into some trouble now and then!

Here's a closer look at the different parts of this kit. I put a lot of work into this, and I think its a very cohesive kit. You get 36 elements, 18 papers, and 7 colors of alphas!

Here are some great layouts with the kit. The first is by Vanessa, the next two are by Marieke, and the final two I did myself:

Plopsasaurus is available exclusively at With Love Studio, and will be 20% off for the first week its available!
