House of Dreams

Hi Everyone!!

Well I had a good weekend!!! I spent the day on Saturday with my good friend Michelle (Crafty Scraps) We finally exchanged our Christmas gifts! We could never seem to get together, one thing or another came up; and with me working full time I only have time on weekends, and her family comes over most every weekend—so time goes fast!! Let me tell you a little story about Michelle and me. We actually met online at ScrapbookMax. The more we talked we found out that we lived only 30 minutes apart. And to make it even more interesting through our conversations we realized that she bowled at the same bowling alley as my dear DIL, and not only that but she bowled on the same team with her! Talk about a small world. We became friends through a passion we both shared, digi scrapping, and found we were connected in a lot of other ways too!! Anyways, we laughed so much on Saturday, and I learned a few more tricks in PS that I didn’t know about. I didn’t get home untill 1:30AM!!!! But it was all good and fun!

Now for the title of my post today—House of Dreams. I became a new CT member for Bonnie VanEsch a couple of weeks ago and her brand new kit “House of Dreams” is now available on her blog. Here are some previews for you.



This kit is something fun she wanted to do. She loves to paint, art journal, make ATC's and do altered art and mixed media. This kit is a fun kit and very versatile!

The main kit contains 12 papers and 45 elements.(27 of which are completely original and new and 12 of which she has hand painted or used real pastels and then scanned in).

It also contains some words, and I also want to show you a close-up of the quality.



Than to top it off she has also made an add-on for this kit.

The add on contains 5 different papers and only 1 paper is the same as in the main kit.
And contains 8 elements.(2 of which are hand painted and drawn and original )

Just go to her blog to download the add-on for free.

This kit is sooooo fun and there is so many different things you can do with this kit. Here is a page made by her team member Isabelle

and here is the page I did. I must tell you that I stepped way out of my comfort zone in creating this page. I had a lot of fun, and I really like the way it turned out. I used one of my favorite photos of my daughter for this.


Now this shows you how versatile this kit can be. It’s currently on sale for only $2.50 for the first 10 buyers, than it goes to $3.80. So, if you like this kit as much as I do head on over there and pick it up while you can for the sale price. Bonnie VanEsch’s House of Dreams

Now hopefully you are all still here because I want to show you some new wordart by Jazzieal’s Wordstodelite. The new set is called Swing into Spring and you can find it exclusively at DSO. Jazz does some really awesome wordart sets and you should go check it out at DSO. Here is a page I did using the new set.
