Adventure is out there…


This week I have a two amazing kits for you! The first one is a new Believe in Magic Collection with Flergs, Love Adventure. It is inspired by the Disney movie, Up! Great for documenting your adventures and dreams you have and would like to accomplish. Cindy Schneider also has some coordinating templates to go along with this collection that is perfect! I also got to work with Meghan Mullens and Red Ivy Design to create a kit called, Introverting. Do you have those days where you just don’t feel like adulting? Do you like staying indoors and not having to interact with others? Then this kit is for you! Let’s take a look at these two amazing kits!

Here is a closer look at the kit….

and a little inspiration…

As mentioned above, Cindy made some super awesome matching templates!

Next, let’s look at Introverting… I think we’ve all been socially awkward a time or 2, if you’re like me – you might be a complete hermit!

Hope you all enjoyed the last challenge  Studio Flergs & I hosted last month. There is another Monthly Magic challenge for February Believe In Magic Bayou Belle: Collection for participating. One random winner will also receive a kit of their choice from Amber or Megs store (#believeinmagic included).  Make sure to check the challenge out for more information.

Did you check out the Bargain Bites section recently? I’ve changed out two kits where you can save 40%!

Thank you so much for reading!  Have a fantastic weekend, take lots of photos so you can scrap more!

Autumn is here: Fall Bucket List!

Hi there Amber Shaw fans,

I think you might have noticed, but yeah…Autumn is here!! Hmmzz…wait yes well…at least it’s here in the Netherlands, cause I know that somewhere in this world summer started! It’s a strange thing right? Ohh well…Fall, Autumn, I love it!! I love the colors of nature changing it’s way, love the cozy-ness it brings when it gets colder.

A while ago when I was browsing pinterest I saw a post made by Emily Bibb about a huge list you can do with and in this season and I think it’s an amazing list! It’s a free list which you can easily download and print. I hope you like the list as much as I do!

You can find the list right here (full size and original website)

Can’t wait to see (read) what your thoughts are about autumn and what you and your family will do from this list! Have fun and enjoy :)
