Mom's Word Art & Freebie

Seeing as Easter has come and gone in the blink of an eye, it is now time to prepare for Mother's Day. Mother's Day this year is May 10th... that's in just a few weeks! Can you believe it?? I have a tendency to procrastinate so I'd love it if you all would leave me a comment with your gift ideas. What was your favorite gift you've either given or received for Mom's Day? What's up for grabs? I'll pick my favorite idea and the lucky poster will receive a $5 gift certificate to my store! Let's hear those ideas, ladies!

I just released a new "Mom's Word Art pack and you can find it at Digital Candy and Pretty Scrappy.

Here is a little freebie word art for you that coordinates with my Mom's Word Art pack. Click here or the image below to download. I love reading your comments, so feel free to comment here when you download.

My new blog makeover is nearly complete and I will be switching it over soon! Stay tuned!

ABC Album and Live, Laugh Love bundled!

37 pages in total, all sized 12x12 and 300dpi for highest quality. This album was designed by Jscrapbug, one of my fabulous CT members with my "In the Neighborhood" kit. When she showed me the finished product I couldn't wait to play with it. Words simply cannot describe how awesome this book is! I had a book printed through Heritage Makers and if you would like to preview this album with photos see my sample book below. When the book came in I almost cried because it is SO perfect! It comes with a blank filler page which I used for the title page and the back page and it also includes the covers and spines in all four colors! How is that for customization!? In a matter of only two hours I was able to go from adding photos to ordering the book! If you are looking for a quick but awesome gift idea or if you have always wanted to do an ABC album but just didn't have the time... This is the book for you!

Well, the time has come to bundle Live, Laugh and Love into the super huge mega-kits they were intended. The just hit the store today and I am going to be releasing them for a very limited time. At the end of the month I am taking them down for good. These kits are HUGE! I have bundled them and priced them for quick sale. :) For 5 bucks a pop you can get your hands on the entire collection! Click here or click the previews below to check 'em out!

Here is your freebie! It is a set of two 12x12 wall art made by Adele of Blind Sight Designs using my "In the Neighborhood" kit. Click the preview below to download now.

Come back tomorrow, I will have my new mother's day word art and a freebie for you! Also, my blog addy is changing here in the next couple of days, so be on the lookout for my post with the new blog address. :) Take care!

Hybrid Fun!

I hope everyone had a safe and fun filled Easter! We had a blast! The girls are finally getting old enough to learn about Easter and what it's really about. Ok, so Chloe is but Zoe had fun rolling on the ground as I read their Easter book LOL. For those that don't know, my girls are age 17 months and almost 3. Surprisingly enough, my little one actually collected more eggs than my 3 year old. LOL As soon as she figured out there was candy inside, she was on a mission to collect as many as she could! It was priceless! I linked it to my gallery if you'd like to leave me some luv. :)

I have to show you what I made for the girls... Jen Balding of Scraps by Jenn allowed me to use some of her scrap goodies and I couldn't wait to play! I used her "Weekender" kit, "That's so dated" date flair, and her "Mini backpack" hybrid template for this awesome hybrid project. I made one for my 2 girls and also my niece. They are all so close in age so they looked a-freakin-dorable all toddling around with the little backpacks on!

Oh and get this... I made layout of the day over at Divine Digital! Woot!

It felt good to get some scrapping and play time in, but it's back to work and time to start designing some new goodies! Hope you all had a super Easter holiday!

Retiring, great news and free template

Ok, I cannot wait to spill the beans.... I am now designing for Digital Candy! I know, how cool is that?? And to top it off, this weekend is $1 sweet sensations where tons of items are only $1 including a couple of mine! Click here to see my brand new store and click here to take a peek at the $1 deals!

Here are my $1 items over at Digital Candy right now. Click the previews below.

I also have a few more surprises up my sleeve to be revealing in the coming weeks. To start, I have changed my design name from Pretty Scrappy to my real name Casey Krause. It gets a little confusing at times when my design name is the same as the store I sell at, LOL. I also have a new fan blinkie. Here it is... Snag it, wear it and if you link it to one of my stores, come back and post a link for me to see and I will send you a special something to show my gratitude!

I am doing a little spring cleaning in my store at Pretty Scrappy to make things a little neater and more organized. This weekend I will be bundling up Live, Laugh, and Love and actually retiring these kits for good so if you are missing any pieces make sure to snag them. After the weekend I will have them bundled as 3 individual sets for a (very) limited time! I have 3 kits I am working on now in addition to some new CU items, and even word art! To make room I have decided to retire a few of my older things... You can get them for only $1 each this weekend only! Sunday at midnight these babies will be locked away in the vault for good. :) Click the previews to grab em for only $1.

And of course I have something to share with you all! Here is a little template freebie I drummed up... It is commercial use ok as well. Click the preview to download.

Happy Easter everyone!!!!
