My holiday blinkie from Joelle

Joelle's blinkies are forever. My store however, contrary to what it says at the bottom of Joelle's blinkie, is now at Oscraps. (I didn't want to change anything cus it would sort of be like fidgeting with a Vermeer.)

You Make My Heart Sing

Here’s a little kit I just finished called You Make My Heart Sing. It’s very late-Juney with breezy sky backgrounds, dancing psychedelic flowers, curious embroidered Irish knot frames, a flute-playing bird called Flegger, of course a ladybug, and several other early summer flourishes. I have it on sale until July 15. You can check it out here: 

You know, if you wanted to sample all the wonderful designers at Oscraps and save money at the same time you could check out our 52 Inspiration subscription. You'd get something beautiful (like You Make My Heart Sing, which is in the 52 Inspiration program) and some great bonus deals too.

Spring Wings


I've got a new kit in the store called Spring Wings. 

It's been storming here in my little valley since February - snow at night and rain during the day. This is the greenest, blossomiest spring I've ever seen.  A zillion butterflies are crowding into a million blossoms to get their nectar before the next storm blows through. And that’s the inspiration for my kit Spring Wings. 

If you’d like to check it out here’s the link:      

If you subscribe to Oscraps 52 Inspirations program: you can get it for free. If not it's in my store for $6 and for the next couple weeks here’s an exclusive coupon code to get it for 20% off.  Spring420   💓

Here are some images from artists I so love and admire who are playing with Spring Wings.

The Spring Fling

The daffodils are popping up their yellowy goodness right behind the last muddy clumps of snow.  Zookie is chasing squirrels. I even saw a mosquito last night. No getting around it, spring is here.  To celebrate Oscraps is doing a Spring Fling Sale all the way through Friday April 1. My designs are 30% off and you can find deals of up to 50% throughout the store.  This could be a good time to stock up for the masterpieces you must create this summer.

Somewhere Near the Sea

 Oh it’s HOT! We should be up in the mountains under waterfalls or at least somewhere near the sea. Which, by the way, is the name of my new scrapbooking kit - Somewhere Near the Sea. It’s a splashy blue collection of all sorts of nautical images which you just might find to be ideal for immortalizing your sea-faring fantasies and maritime musings.  And it’s on sale 50% off till Monday morning at the Oscraps Fab Friday SaleSea for yourself. (har, har)  *The sale is over but it's still in my store*

The sale is over but Judit Sabo-Reigl put this beautiful ad for me on Facebook using designs in Somewhere Near the Sea.

And here's some layouts from my galaxy-class awesome CT using Somewhere Near the Sea

It's IDSD! You know what that means right?

It's over. It was wonderful! Thank you all so very, very, very much. It looks like there's going to be a lot of fantasy artwork in the works after this sale. If you get in the mood, I'd love to see them. Post them at the Oscraps gallery. Or on my Facebook page. Or email them to me Thanks again and hugs.  💓

Oh yes, Oscraps is celebrating International Digital Scrapbooking Day with a storewide 40% off sale starting right this minute  (Friday October 2) and ending Monday midnight. Soo, if you've been waiting for a sale it'll never get better than this.


It was a frenzied summer. Most of the fires around here have been put out or calmed down so I’m spending as much time in the woods as I can.  Here’s me and Zookie chilling on the beach at Breakfast Lake. Congratulations if you can find Zookie, she blends right in with the early autumn golds.

Our Place - my new mini-kit

Hey! I just finished this little mini-kit with deer & blue birds & blossoms & backgrounds. The animal families who's homes are hidden around our place here were my inspiration for Our Place. The blue birds and blue jays are busy building their nests right now. I leave scraps of fabrics out for them which they pick through and fly away with to create really cushy and colorful homes. Our Place is for sale in my store right now for $4.  If you’d like to get it for free you can subscribe to Vicki’s 52 Inspirations program. You can read about it at my store. 

Here's some artworks from the gloriously amazing artists in my CT using this kit.

Has there ever been a better time to let your muse loose, lock yourself in your room, and make masterpieces?

While we're all keeping our social distances I do think this is the ideal time to let all those masterpieces out of our noggins that have been clamoring to get out.  Coincidentally the O’s 14th Annual Birthday Sale is this Friday March 20.  40% off everything, a free collab with a $15 purchase, and fun games in the forums every day.  Perfect timing I think.  Take a peek but don't wait too long, it's all over March 27 Friday night at midnight. .
