New Fall Kits, New Commercial Use & Freebie!!


The first day of fall is September 23; next Tuesday. It’s still in the 90’s during the day here where I live (which is hotter than usual), but I’ve seen reports of snow across the US and Canada. Crazy!

Autumn is always one of my favorite times of the year. I love the pretty colors and the cooler weather. I also look forward to long pants and cozy sweaters. I have a brand new colorful autumn themed digital scrapbook kit available this week that I think is perfect for scrapping all of your autumn, pumpkin patch and apple orchard themed photos! Hello Fall is 20% off this week during Fresh Fruit HERE at Scrap Orchard. And if you purchase Hello Fall by September 24th, you’ll get my newest addition to my Fruity collection, Fruity – Apple, for FREE!!

I also have a coupon code for you to take an additional 10% off your purchase in my store on any of my Fresh Fruit products this week!
Coupon code: KA-EXTRA10

If you are a designer looking for new design tools, or a scrapper looking to build your basics stash, I have two new products for you this week! Just in time for Fall themed kits, I am releasing CU Fall Foliage 4 HERE. And if you buy CU Fall Foliage 4 by September 24th, you’ll get my new CU Leaf Brushes 1 for FREE! (For an additional 10% off, use coupon code: KA-EXTRA10.)

I posted a sneak peek contest a few days ago for two chances to win a free copy of Hello Fall. I have used to choose a winner. Congratulations to #1, Candice Stears! Please email me at so that I can send the kit to you.


I love to browse the paper scrapbooking boards on Pinterest. Lately I have been seeing and pinning some really pretty pages using vellum. I decided to create some fun digital vellum sheets to coordinate with my new Hello Fall kit. I have them here as a gift for you! I hope you enjoy them! I found that for me, they work especially well using a shadow in linear burn mode, or by changing the blending modes over other backgrounds. Have lots of fun playing with them!

Wishing you all a fabulous week!!

Wendy Bird Designs has put together a fun set of printables using an older school kit in my shop, Academic.  Academic Printables are 20% off in the store HERE this week during Fresh Fruit!

My computer has been on the fritz this month. It’s been really frustrating not being able to create as quickly as I'm used to working. My husband has ordered some parts and it should be back to it’s super happy speedy self in a couple of days! Yay!!! Since I'm going to be back to working fullspeed, I need some theme suggestions!! I’d love it if you’d leave a comment and let me know what theme you’d like to see next!

Before I sign off, I have a little gift for you! I really love to scrap with patterned papers like notebook paper, accounting paper, grids, and school handwriting print. I included a circular handwriting paper in the Nerd Alert kit. (You can see it in Roxana’s layout posted just above.) But I wanted more options. So I created a whole pack of school lined handwriting print papers. Enjoy!

*New Kit* Brain Freeze!!


Hello!! I hope that you have enjoyed the weekly mini kits from the Iron Scrapper all through July!! I really enjoyed creating them, but I’m also happy to get back to working on some full sized kits this month too!

I don’t know if you’ve ever experienced “Brain Freeze” before. It’s that strange short little head ache you can get if you eat a frozen treat too quickly. My daughter had a brain freeze moment when eating frozen yogurt at my sister’s wedding last month, and it inspired the name of my latest products. My newest kit Brain Freeze is all about the frozen treats that are a part of what makes our summer so much fun! This summer my family has gone to the frozen yogurt shop with grandma, eaten at an ice cream parlor on vacation, we've gone through a couple of boxes of those plastic sleeve ice pops and we’ve been making homemade ice pops all summer long! So I decided that a “Brain Freeze” kit was in order!

Brain Freeze is 20% off this week during Fresh Fruit. And you pick up the kit by August 6th, you’ll get the Brain Freeze Quick Pages for FREE!

To take an additional 10% off your purchase, use this coupon code at check out: ka-extra10

Brain Freeze Digital Scrapbook Kit



Brain Freeze Quick Pages








If you missed any of my Iron Scrapper Products, they are all now available in my store HERE at Scrap Orchard. They are all 20% off through August 6th!


I posted a sneak peek contest a few days ago for two chances to win a free copy of Brain Freeze. I really enjoyed reading all of your responses! It’s so fun to hear what your favorites are. I felt like it gave me a little bit of insight into who all of you are. I’ll definitely be asking more questions like that in the future.

I have used to choose two winners for the sneak peek contest to win a copy of Brain Freeze. Congratulations to #14 (kimfernald) and #60 (Yvonne)! Please email me at so that I can send the kit to you.


If you follow me, you probably know that I like lots of color options when I scrap. Especially papers. I have created a Brain Freeze {Add-On Papers} Pack for you as a gift. Enjoy!!

New! Marry Me and FREEBIE!

We are headed into Week 4, the final week of our Iron Scrapper at Scrap Orchard! If you haven’t already joined in our forum challenges for a chance to win some amazing prizes during July in our Iron Scrapper Event, it’s not to late. You can check out the prizes and challenge details HERE in our forum.

This week our Iron Scrapper digital scrapbooking products are inspired by songs from the 2000’s. To see all of our Iron Scrapper coordinating products, click the image below! They are $2.50 each, but when you buy 4 (or more), you’ll get them for 50% off AND you’ll get a special free with purchase add-on!!


I have two products in the Iron Scrapper category this week. Because my younger sister got married last month, I really wanted to work on a wedding theme so that I could scrap some of the photos I took. So I have created a mini kit called Marry Me found HERE in my store, and a coordinating paper pack, Marry Me {Add-On Paper Pack} found HERE.  I hope you like them!!







Since I have been creating Fruity freebies this month, I thought I’d add one more! Even though I used the dark grey from the Fruity color palette, this Fruity – Stitched Alpha is super versatile and it will really match any layout created with any kit! I hope that you like it!! (Pssst…there’s a new Fruity kit coming next week!!)
