Made a decision to stop selling digital designs

I thought long and hard about this over the weekend and have decided to stop selling digital scrapbook designs in stores. The owners of the 3 stores I was selling at were awesome and are wonderful people so it had nothing to do with the stores themselves. Designing is very time consuming and with a very active 1-year-old and another on the way and a house to attempt to take care of, I just cannot devote the time necessary to make selling products successful. However I do enjoy designing and I will continue to offer freebies on my blog. This way I can do it at my own pace. Also, with designing, I had very little time to actually scrap. I had to drop many of my CT's and anything to do with Photoshop seemed like a chore. But now I've got my scrapping mojo back and am ready to create some lo's. Also I was asked to join the CT at Scrap It Sassy (where I used to sell) so I'm really excited to work with some of the products of the awesome designers over there.

Speaking of scrapping I completed a lo for Eclectic Scrap Style Designs kit called Whimsy Love. This is from me and my hubby's wedding day. I think most of us have this obligatory ring photo!

Now for some freebies! Because I decided to stop selling I have a few products that I was working on that are not going to make it into the shops. I really wanted to do a running kit. Well, the furthest I got was making these medals. I think they turned out pretty cool though!

Those are available here.

The next was a kit I started where I was motivated by my trip to the Jersey Shore. It never got completed, but this contains 15 papers and 4 ribbons.

This has four downloads:
Papers 1
Papers 2
Papers 3

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello, Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us. I have been trying to download the second paper pack from your Zoo Spirit contribution and no matter how many times I download it the zip file says that it is corrupted and can't open up. Is there any way that you can send that portion to me at ?

Thanks for sharing with us. I am also having problems with Zoo Spirit Papers2. It downloads to about 21.6MB and stops thus leaving it corrupted. I have tried several times and always the same. Thanks for your help.
