It’s February! Time to break out all the reds, pinks, hearts, cards and flowers! The month of love is upon us!
Whether it’s a pet, a family member, or a spouse, everyone has someone that they care about, and this month, the theme of love is running strong.
This month’s buffet is Listen to Your Heart. If you’re like me, your brain immediately starts singing “Listen With Your Heart, you will understand,” but no, it’s not Pocahontas. It’s a beautiful theme full of pinks, oranges, and yellows. They remind me of the conversation hearts, and yes, one designer did make a few packs of conversation hearts!
The designers did such a great job, didn’t they?
The CT had a lot of fun. The biggest complaint that I’ve read was that they had to choose. To me, that speaks of how wonderfully the designers did!
Since it’s a new month, it’s time for a BAKE SALE! I don’t know about you, but I just LOVE the bake sale! You never know what you’re going to find in there, but it’s always something that you just can’t live without!
Remember, that when you spend $10 in the store, you get an amazing grab bag created by one of our amazing designers.
Today, we have TWO guest designers and a NEW designer joining the team! Help me welcome Szabina, Dúnia, and Aga!
First up is our new designer, Szabina, of Sabee’s Creative World.
Here’s how she describes herself:
My name is Szabina Korsos, 26. I live in Hungary.
I always loved drawing, painting and doing creative things. I first learned about digital scrapbooking in 2008. I was fascinated by this hobby. I collected all my designing knowledge with no professional help and I learned how to use Photoshop on my own as well.
In my free time I like designing not only kits but putting my memories on digital or traditional pages. At the beginning I used to create 5-10 digital layouts per week, but I also became interested in traditional paper scrapbooking. During that time I was learning more and more about the newest techniques through online foreign courses and I started to combine these two methods into hybrid projects. Nowadays I do less digital pages than when I started, and if I feel like creating I turn to hybrid or traditional scrapbooks.
I love hand-made painted elements. Drawing and painting have been an important part of my life since my childhood. I attended art faculty at the high school and had private lessons by well-known painters. So I try to use my professional knowledge as much as I can in designing. The most important thing about my work is that 90% of my kits are made without commercial elements. I think many drawings and individual style make my designs unique.
Unfortunately digital scrapbook designing is not full time job for me. At present I’m a desktop publisher. It’s a creative job, and I like doing it.
Professionally trained in art. That’s really cool, in my opinion.
Here are just a few of the amazing items available in her store:
One of our guest designers is Dunia, of Dunia Designs.
Our guest designer, Dunia had this to share with us:
My name is Dúnia, 36 years old, I live in Brazil, with my husband, my son Yuri, my girls twins Eduarda and Rafaela and my two dogs Floquinho and Pantufa.
I’m addicted to scrapbooking, I’m a scrapper since 2006 and designer since 2009, but nowadays I’m so addicted to Project Life, I made it last year and I’m making this year too, it’s so great to see all the memories in a book.
I’m also addicted to books, tv series and coca-cola.
Project Life! I’m doing Project Life! I love Project Life. Okay, calming down, so I can show you something she has available in her store:
Our other guest designer is Aga of Jimbo Jambo Designs. Make sure you check out her store! She has some great things in there!
While you’re checking it out, make sure you check out her sale for you:
Wow! It’s time to reveal February’s Daily Download!
Last month’s Daily Download was brought to you by Connie Prince, and OH GOODNESS, after January here, it was a perfect kit!
Thank you, Connie for your beautiful kit! Remember, if you missed a download, you can purchase all of the pieces now.
This month, Monica, of ViolaMoni had provided a SERIOUSLY cute kit!
Remember, the links are only up for about 5 days. After that, they’re removed, so if you miss a download, you’ll have to wait until the next month to buy the kit!
Make sure you come back every day!
Oh, don’t go away just yet! I’m not done. It’s Friday, so we have some official Fresh Baked stuff as well! The designers were serious busy bees this week!
