quite a few things these days! The long awaited new eBook from Designer Digitals is finally available:
It’s in the Framework has 98 (gasp!) layouts from fellow Designer Digitals creative team members showing a myriad of different ways of using frames. If you have seen any of my layouts (both paper and digital) you’ll know that I have a serious thing for DD frames! I was so thrilled to contribute 19 layouts to this eBook. Unfortunately I can’t post any of theme here but take my word that some of my favorite layouts are in this book! The other contributes were Steph Vetne, Katrina Kennedy, Crissy Hunt, Katie Pertiet and the editor Wendy McKeehan — every one of them are amazing scrappers. In other Designer Digital news the 4th Quarter Sale starts today, November 5th at 6pm EST and runs until the 10th.

I popped into the Scrapbooks and Cards Today blog and saw that my favorite mini “10 days in Ireland is featured on the blog today.

And finally, my review of Snippets by Lain Ehmann is up on The Scrap Review. I had tons of fun doing this review. It’s a happy little book with lots of inside jokes for us scrapbookers. I made a few layouts inspired by Lain’s essays.

This one was inspired by Lain but also by Anna Aspnes’ new grumpy word art! It’s not all sunshine and roses in this house 😉

I’ve been thinking about doing a layout about what’s in my bag for quite some time. It’s amazing what gets jammed in there!
