News, news and more news ....

Well, I have been busy designing projects for all sorts of things! I have submitted two projects to Scrapbook Expo for the 2009 shows. I have applied to exhibit and teach at all 10 of their shows next year. Keep your fingers crossed that I get accepted (or you can alway email them and tell them how great I am... LOL). As soon as I know if they have been accepted, I will post the class projects here so you can get a sneak peek!

I have also designed a holiday gift idea project and it's ready to go in the store. Here is the "Winter Wishes" magnetic message board:

You can get more details about it here, but it features Basic Grey double-sided paper, Imaginisce embellishments and K2R metal panels... what's not to like? And at $14.00, it is definitely an affordable gift! So, get yours now before I take them to the Tampa Scrapbook Expo in a few weeks!

Kits2Remember is proud to announce that we will be taking part in Scrapbooking Roads' Reindeer Round Up Online Shop Hop next month.

One (or more) of my customers told them they wanted K2R on the online shop hop, so I thought I would give it a shot. So, register on the Reindeer Roundup web page and watch for this cute logo for your chance for special offers, prizes and more. In fact, anyone who orders through the Reindeer Roundup Online Shop Hop Dec. 1-31 will get a reindeer acrylic embellishment... and that's just the start of the goodies from me!

I had the pleasure of being a guest on the Diva Craft Lounge Internet radio show this week. So fun! Missed it? No worries, you can still listen to the archived show on their web site! I was on the show to help promote a new Diva design book. Want to design with the Divas? Diva Craft Lounge host Danielle and Rayme have published a new book with guest designers, featuring more than 50 different project ideas! Wow! And from the looks of the sneak peek they have on their web site, these aren't your average, everyday project ideas. They run the gamut of paper crafting techniques AND come with step-by-step instructions so you can easily recreate these projects at home. All for $19.95! I am proud to say that I have an acrylic wall hanging called "CREATE" published in the book, which is due to hit shelves Dec. 12. You can pre-order your copy now in the K2R store. Definitely fun stuff and a great opportunity I appreciate!

Plus, selected project kits are still 50 percent off, there are some good ones still left, and all Clear Scraps are 30 percent off through tomorrow. A great way to stock up on some holiday gifts ... or maybe an indulgence for yourself!

On a personal note, can I just say how THRILLED I am that a scrapbook company is using one of my favorite (and least-known by the masses) animals in their new collection?

Sassafras has an adorable narwhal on their "Life at the Pole" collection and I LOVE that. The back story: Like many little girls, I was in to anything unicorn. I had figurines, stuffed animals, books, you name it. Then I found out that the legend of the unicorn is believed to have come from nomadic people seeing narwhals in the sea. Narwhals are porpoises whose males grown long, spiral tasks for figting during the breeding season, like antlers on deer. They only live in the Arctic, so they aren't well-known. Of course, as a elementary school student, you always have to do reports on animals. I chose the narwhal - a challenge since there was no Internet to be had at the time and it wasn't a very well-documented species - but, I became an expert and have always had a soft spot for these creatures of the sea. So, hooray for Sassafras ... can't wait to get my hands on some of that paper!

The project is beautiful! Love how you added smaller pieces below. Can't wait to see more.

I am wishing you luck, BUT I think they would be dumb not to pick you!
