Huge Closing Sale




I have made the decision to retire from digi design, and as a result my store at Scrap Orchard will close February 28th. I couldn't just close up shop without a darn good sale, so everything in my store, excluding Orchard collabs, is a massive 50% off!

I've loved my time as a designer, and especially love seeing everyone’s creations with my products – never fails to put a smile on my face. I hope to still see you all around digiland!

Don't forget, my store closes Feb 28th, so get in fast and grab some goodies. Once it's gone, it's GONE!

Three Hybrid Projects using You and I

Hello! Pene here with some hybrid goodness for you! Litabells Designs is the featured designer at Scrap Orchard this month! This gorgeous freebie called You and I is given out when you sign up for the Scrap Orchard newsletter.

Valentine's Day is of course in February, and I was feeling the love! So I decided to make some hybrid projects with this love-ly kit!

The first is a simple card I made for my husband for our wedding anniversary.  We celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary on the 30th of January!  I made the card in Photoshop Elements, printed it on white cardstock, cut it out with a paper trimmer, and there you have it.  For some extra pop I printed out the heart and stuck it on the card with foam tape.

As you know I am a big fan of Pinterest.  I found lots of gorgeous hanging hearts and garlands and as I couldn't decided which one to make, I made them both!

This is a hanging heart.  I used the heart element in the You and I kit, resized and with various papers from the kit clipped to it.  I printed these on white cardstock, cut them out and folded them in half.  Then I stuck one side of the first heart to one side of the next heart and so on.  I punched a hole in the top with my crop-o-dile and used some twine to hang it.  I added some buttons and beads to the twine for some pretties.

Sorry the photos are a little blurry - it didn't want to stop spinning!

Next is the heart garland.  I have a hall stand with a beautiful glass vase with blue stones at the bottom and white twigs sticking out of it.  I have decorated the twigs a few different ways over the years depending on the season or the event, and of course I had to choose hearts for this month!

For this project, I printed various patterned papers from the You and I kit onto white cardstock and used a heart punch to punch out lots of hearts. I used some linen thread and sewed the hearts on with a needle, alternating buttons and beads in between.  It looks so sweet wrapped around the twigs! I love it!

Thanks for looking!

Pinning Love - Head, Heart and Hand!

Welcome to February!  But where on earth did January go?  I can see 2012 is going to be another year that just flies by.

Have you joined the Pinterest craze yet?  I've been a member for quite some time now, and I just love using it as a pinboard to keep pictures of all the cool things I find around the internet close at hand.

With February being the month of Love, I thought I'd share 3 of my recent pins relating to Love.  Something Inspirational for the Head, Touching for the Heart and Creative for the Hand!



If you've found any inspiration around Love this month, make sure you link us up!  I'm going back to see what else I can find to pin.
