Designer Sneak Peeks – August 3, 2016

Well, here we are at the beginning of August. School starts soon for most. I know some have already started. This year is the first time in 18 years that I don’t have a child starting school of sometime. It’s a little odd. Let’s see our sneak peeks for this week. I see some school kits and some travel kits.

Remember to check back here tomorrow to see that our wonderful CT girls have created with these kits.


Fresh Baked: August 01, 2016

It’s AUGUST! Time to start planning FALL and the cooler temps. Time for going back to school. That doesn’t mean that the designers are ready to give up those bright colors, just yet. August’s buffet is full of fun and vibrant colors, and that’s not the only series that is like that. August is going to be gorgeous, I can just tell!

It is the First of the month, and that means the revel of our new Buffet!! Don’t forget the new Buffet items will all be 50% off (from the 1-5th of the month)!

*NEW Buffet Bundles* Take a look at our all new Buffet Bundles! Each buffet for 2016 will have a sub category for our Buffet Bundles. One easy click to add bunches of Buffet goodies to your cart, and an amazing value too!


The designers all had their own take on what the colors and theme said to them! I love the variety!

The designers definitely each made the palette their own and came up with some gorgeous designs, each unique but working so well with the other designers’ creations

July Feature Designer – Little Rad Trio

Happy July my digi friends. This month we’re talking to the lovely Jennifer of Little Rad Trio.

How did you get started in digital scrapbooking?

I wanted some themed kits that I couldn’t find around the digital land, so I started making my own.

What made you decide to design?

See above plus I love creative outlet it has.

What do you use to create your designs (program, additional tools, etc.)?

I use CS6 and I have been trying really hard to learn Illustrator.

Describe your design workplace.

It varies. I have use my laptop the most, but occasionally use my computer at work which has 2 monitors.

What is your favorite thing about designing?

The creative process. I love being able to have free range to let my mind wander.

What is your favorite kit currently in your GS store and why?

My favorite kit is Historic USA – Civil War. I love the color palette and all the themed elements.

What do you do when you are feeling very sad or depressed?

I love watching chick flicks. They always make me smile.

Which is the best vacation you’ve ever had in your life?

That’s a tough one. I love spending time with my family, so any vacation I have taken with my husband, kids and parents and siblings have always been my favorites.

Do you believe in ghosts?

Actually yes, I do. I even had an experience while in Hawaii. I was house sitting on the AFB for a friend. My mom and I were in the living room when a shadow appeared on a wall that was completely impossible to have a shadow. It was on a window. A figure of a person walked into the window, then stopped and appeared to look in. Then it simply disappeared. It was not scary or anything like that. But my mom and I tried everything to “break” the shadow by standing right in front of it and moving our arms. No luck. Very intriguing. I remember saying to my mom “Do you see what I see?”. She replied “yes”. Very weird!

Who is your celebrity crush?

Brett Eldredge. I have always liked his music, but when I saw him in concert, I was like “WOW! He’s HOT!!”

What do you order when you go to Starbucks?

I don’t go to Starbucks because I’m not a coffee fan. Yeah, call me weird!

What is your favorite kind of cookie?

Peanut Butter. I love my mom’s peanut butter cookies, which is using my grandma’s recipe.

How old were you when you had your first kiss?

No comment. LOL!

Are you an optimist or a pessimist?

I would say I’m pretty much in the middle. It definitely depends on the situation.

Would you change your name if you could? If so, what would you change it to?

Jennifer is an extremely common name and there are times I wish my name was different. But I would never change it, because my parents chose it for me.

What is your favorite pizza topping?

I love pepperoni, green pepper, onion and jalapeno with extra sauce and light cheese. Yep – I’m weird. Not only do I not like coffee, I’m not a cheese lover.

If you could give the world one piece of advice, what would it be?

Hug your children (or family members) when you can. Before you know it, they are all grown up.

What do you do to wake up in the morning?

Get out of bed very slowly! If I don’t start the day with a shower, it’s definitely going to be a slow moving day.

What is a small luxury that you treat yourself to?

I love cosmos made with Grey Goose and Cointreau. They are so yummy.

What did you want to be when you were small?

An elementary school teacher.

Which would you rather do: wash dishes, mow the lawn, clean the bathroom, or vacuum the house?

NONE! I hate doing chores!!

If you could hire someone to help you, would it be with cleaning, cooking, or yard work?

Cleaning! No question about it.

What would you do if you won the lottery?

Donate a large portion to the CJD Foundation to help bring awareness to Prion Diseases and hopefully one day find a cure or even treatment. I miss my sister-in-law so much and I really wish we could have known what she was going through when she was sick. We all would have treated her illness much differently and I would have spent as much time as I could have with her.

What’s the most interesting thing you can see out of your office or kitchen window?

Wildlife. I see deer, fox, coyote, etc. It’s always fun to see what I’ll see next.

Share your favorite recipe with us.

My grandma’s home made spaghetti. It’s not really a recipe but more of a throw in a bunch of spices into tomato sauce & hamburger until it tastes good. Each time I make it, it tastes slightly different, but always so good.

Thanks Jennifer! Make sure to check out her GS Store, her FB page, and her blog. Also, make sure you are checking the blog every day for the daily download to get pieces of the kit she created for us.
