I scrapped, imagine that! :D

I've been so busy on the design front lately that I have barely done any scrapping.  A couple of pages for sweet Ms Emily, but then I was excited to learn that PDP was starting up Speed Scraps again!  So I joined up and thought to myself, Why not scrap with one of your own kits?  What a strange experience that was!  It was like, I knew every single piece in it, and I knew exactly what I wanted to put with what for my cluster work, and I'd never used the kit before (and have designed several since, so it was kind of 'new' to me again)... I liked how it came out, and then proceeded to play along with some of the February challenges!  :D

So here are a couple of my pages, using my own stuff.  Heehee.  Who ever would have thought it?


One Word


Speed Scrap

So much fun!  I think I will try to make a regular thing of this, this scrapping with my own stuff.  :)

Farynar's Wings is Now Open!!

That's right, I am now officially a designer at Polka Dot Plum!  You can see my shoppe here.  To this end, I have created a designer blog where I will give away freebies, show off my awesomely talented ct's layouts, tell you about sales and giveaways, etc.  As a matter of fact, I am going to be heading over there in just a few moments to put up a freebie that one of the new Sugar Plums (SaraSATW) made using my kit Mysterious, so please be sure to check that out!  Also, be sure to follow me on twitter (@farynarswings) as I've already started giving away freebies in the form of $5 gift cards to my shoppe!  And lastly, I have a Facebook Fan Page set up too, I would absolutely love it if you'd drop by (especially to share anything you've created with my products!)

Well, Hello Again

I'm so sorry I've been neglecting my little blog lately, but I've been completely shifting gears.  While I still serve on the creative teams of a couple of designers, I've decided to try my own hand at designing!  My shoppe isn't open yet, but that hasn't stopped me!  *heehee*   I joined together with my dear friend Beth of Designs by Sweet Mesquite to create for you this beautiful, enormous collection for Valentine's Day.  We called it With Every Beat of my Heart.
There is so much in this badboy, we had to make a coordinating add-on, and Beth made a word-art pack and TWO alphas for you!  
This kit contains: 
19 Patterned Papers
5 Solid Papers
9 Flowers
6 Wordarts (1 wordart is available in 2 colors--7 wordarts total)
4 Buttons
3 Bead Scatters
1 Brad
1 Chocolate Heart
2 Layered Paper Hearts
1 Glitter Acrylic Heart Frame
1 Decorative Heart Wire
1 Glitter Heart
3 Tags
1 Glitter Splat
1 Scatter Frame
2 Ric Rac
3 Strings
3 Leaves/Greenery
1 Staple (front & back)
1 Decorated String Frame
1 Border
1 Stitched Border
1 Bow
2 Ribbons
2 Stitches
1 Frame

The word-art pack and one of the alphas come in the kit, and Beth was kind enough to bundle everything together for those of you who want to get the whole collection and save!  (The add-on will be available Saturday for $1 as part of the Saturday Singles!)

Here's a peek at all that you get in the bundle:

And, as a special added bonus, if you pick it up today, you'll get the 20% off ON TOP OF the sale price!  So grab this one, it's a beauty!

Fall and Winter Combine

November is such an interesting time of the year as far as scrapping goes.  You're still seeing lots of fall pages, and Halloween pages being created.  We're also looking ahead to Thanksgiving, winter, and even Christmas.  I have a sampling for you today that I have created this past week.  I do hope you'll enjoy them!

I am absolutely in love with each of the above kits (and template used on ok09), I hope that you'll check them out!
