{Wood Grain Love}


I’m really loving these wood grain tags right now. They are super cute as gift tags and have worked perfectly as journaling tags for scrapbook pages. I would love to do some in other colors and would love to hear your color suggestions.

{Creating & Shipping, Shipping & Creating}


Hi all! Just thought I’d drop in and let you know I’m still here. :)  Since the grand opening of my {embellish*ology} shop, I’ve been shipping orders and working on creating new products. Can’t believe it’s almost been two weeks!

If you haven’t been over to the shop recently, you should head on over there and check it out. I’ve added a few things like these labels (that are also available in primary colors):

I have some file tabs and labels that I’m hoping to get into the shop soon….hopefully, this week. I’m also working on Halloween goodies to be released in early fall.

{embellish*ology Final Sneak Peek: Wood Grain}

Can you believe it? It’s the last sneak peek before the Grand Opening! Don’t worry though because there are many more products than I’ve revealed and will be in the shop tomorrow!

So are you ready for the last peek into the new shop? I’m really liking these wood grain journaling tags and plan to have them in all sorts of colors.

Beauty It’s been so long since I’ve scrapbooked so I have really enjoyed playing with my new products. I’m really hoping having this new shop will allow me time to be able to do more scrapbooking. I will still keep A Scrappy Design open…I’m still liquidating all of my current stock and will occasionally add items here and there but {embellish*ology} is going to be my main focus.

I really hope everyone is as excited as I am about this new shop and I hope that you have told all your friends about {embellish*ology}!

LAST GIVEAWAY! Leave me a comment telling me what your favorite sneak peek was or what you would like to see in the new shop (I’m always looking/researching for new themes).

Winners for all the giveaways will be announced tomorrow evening. Don’t forget to check out the shop. All purchases Opening day will include a free gift!

{embellish*ology Sneak Peek: Little Monsters}

Did everyone have a good weekend? I think it went a little too fast.

So, I did a little scrapbooking this weekend. Digi scrappin’ that is. Here’s the first layout I did:
A farmer's work is never doneIt’s a pretty simple design but i didn’t want to take away from the photo. I still need to do the journaling. I’m kind of procrastinating on the journaling because it’s not one of my strong points. Also,  I seem to be having issues with words lately. For example, while talking to my husband yesterday morning in Sunday School, I told him I could have eaten an umbrella when I really meant granola bar. What?! Where did THAT come from? But anyway, I digress.

Ok, so are you ready for the next sneak peek? Now, I  have to tell you that I cheated and did my sneak peek digitally but the products will be sold as a physical product (that’s an advantage of being the designer :P). Anyway, I’m sure you’ll get the idea.
Little Monsters 

So what do you think? Do you like what you see of “Little Monsters”? Are you ready for the Grand Opening? Only 2 more days!!

Ok, it’s giveaway time!!! Leave me a comment telling me what you think of “Little Monsters” and you’ll be entered to win a set of Monsters for yourself!

Also, if you didn’t enter the giveaways for the other sneak peek sets, you can enter to win  the Flying High set HERE, the Bicycles set HERE, and the Typography set HERE.

Only one more sneak peek to go! Are you as excited as I am?!

{embellish*ology Sneak Peek: Typography}

Hi! Are you ready for the first sneak peak of the goodies I will have in the {embellish*ology} shop? I’ve been designing since the beginning of the year and still have tons of ideas flooding my brain. This new shop is going to have lots of goodies for scrapbooking, card making, paper crafting, party planning, and more!

This first set of goodies is going to be great for journaling. I’ve had several ideas on how to use these little alpha strips but want to hear how you would use them.


So, how would you use these “Typography” alpha strips? Leave me a comment with your idea(s) by July 12th and you could win a set!

I hope you liked this first sneak peek! I’m so excited to show you more…..hopefully tomorrow! Be sure to come to the grand opening of {embellish*ology} on Wednesday, July 14th.
