Wonderful Wednesday

Hi everyone! It’s Kat. Again. Yeah, I know … I know … the power’s that be keep letting me in the back door to the blog. Sssshhh, don’t tell ;)   So here I am with another mid-week post, and that means … Wonderful Wednesday is back. Strange – I keep coming back … the Wednesday sale keeps coming back. Do think there’s a coincidence?  Nah, probably not.

As always, today’s sale is just for today (duh – Wonderful Wednesday) and select kits are 50% off. There’s some commercial use papers, individual elements, full kits, and even bundles. Now, need a reason to shop?  How about it’s July – celebrate or commiserate reaching the half way point in 2015.  Of course, I’ll spare you the panic of telling you how many more days there are until Christmas. Instead of teasing you with holiday seasons in the middle of the [US] summer, how about I just show you a preview of some of the items you can grab today?

Wonderful-Wednesday---07-01While you’re browsing the store, don’t forget about the new designer collab for July – it’s!  The kit is called Roar and it’s full of bright colors and fun animal- and zoo-inspired elements. Oh, the possibilities! I see school field trips, vacations, travel (anyone been on safari?) … If your total purchases qualify ($7 in any one shopping trip) today, or any time during the first half of the month, Roar will automatically be added to your cart for free!




Well, that’s all for today. Here in the US, we’re headed into a long weekend to celebrate Independence Day (July 4), and I’m packing my bags and going to the beach for a few days.  I’ll be back on Sunday to announce the winner of Sekada’s Featured Designer scavenger hunt – good luck, and happy shopping!

Welcome back to another edition of our Featured Designer game!  This week we’re celebrating with Sekada Designs


Sekada’s sale runs from June 26 (um, yeah – you knew it already started … right?!) through to July 9. There’s more than 16 pages – yes, I said 16+!! – on sale for 46% off.  Everything – personal and commercial-use products.

What’s our game this week?  Well, I know you all loved the scavenger hunt that we did with Meta’s store a few weeks go, so we’re bringing that back.  Are you ready?!  We have a $5 coupon to the Sekada Designs store up for grabs for one select winner.  Do you remember how this works?  If not, here’s  quick recap. Below is a image that contains sneak peeks to nine of Sekada’s kits in the store. PM me with your guesses on the kits – don’t post them here on the blog, just PM so nobody else knows your answers – or email me. Next Sunday, July 5 at 5:00 pm (MST), I’ll take all the correct entries and draw a random winner of the coupon. Easy, right?

Remember, private message me your answers before Sunday night (look for AussieKat in the forums/message boards – click on my name to send a message) or email me.  Ready?  Hopefully I  made it a little more difficult this time ’round.  Good luck … now, go!!

This layout goes to my heart…. The theme, the sweet everyday life photos and the simple design are just perfect!

Here’s a sample of clean and simple perfection! A neat design and the use of brushes to give that extra touch are wonderful!

This page is so beautiful!!! I love the cutout star and the tiny clustering work above that lovely photo!

As I sit here and write this blog post, we have raging thunderstorms all around – huge dark clouds, thunder and lightning. Glad I made it home from work safely – wouldn’t want to be driving in this. Ah, the joys of summer on the east coast of the US (well, in my neck of the woods, at least): hot, humid, and p.m. thunderstorms most days. Awesome (yes, note the sarcasm there).  On the bright side, I’m writing about the Wonderful Wednesday sale items that you can grab in the store for 50% off just for one day – June 24 … today (well, today when you read this).  Here’s a sampling of what’s available –

Wonderful-Wednesday-06-24-2015Love when I look through the sale items each week, ooohing and aaahing over items – some I already have, and it’s a gentle reminder for me to pull them out of my stash … other things get added to my “must have” list. This week there’s some great patterned paper packs (not shown here) to feed your graphic needs, some artsy items, brushes … so much fun!  Remember, everything in the Wonderful Wednesday section of the store (just click on the image or any links in the text of this post) is only on sale for one day.

Since we’re in the second half of the month, and if your purchase qualifies, you also have the chance to grab part 2 of the MScraps designer collab. for this month, You Are Loved



Well, I’d better get off the computer and shut everything down, just in case we lose power!  Happy scrapping – and shopping!

I’m Sharon and I am pleased to host this challenge. I love to try artsy pages.

Easy right? Yes. I love doodles, brushes, Paint splats or stitches on my artsy pages

Hey everyone – happy Father’s Day for yesterday. I hope you were able to spend some time with the much-loved men in your life, be they your own father or the father of your children.  Hubby and I spent a quiet day – and our son went to work. Perfect. Growing up, I could never understand my parent’s one sole wish for any holiday or special occasion: peace and quiet. As an adult, oh boy, do I understand that now! So, the weekend was just catching up on some sports (couch Olympics) and just generally hanging out. Well, I did some scrapping, too, which was a real challenge since my EHD crashed!  Eeek!!  As I write this post, I’m running a full restore from my online back to another drive and also running my second data recovery program on the bad disk. Hoping there isn’t too much of gap between what is recovered and what was lost. *sigh* Nonetheless, scrapping was a nice quiet escape from the humming of the drives … and I played around with the freebie mini kit from NBK Design for last week’s blog challenge - did you play?  Come on – really easy way for you to have a chance at a $5 store coupon for some shopping courtesy of the MScraps designers!  So the game that Nicole was sponsoring was to use everything in her mini kit and add two other items from her store to create a page, Micro Magic.  Here’s the page I created:



So, what did I use for my page?  I used the Strong mini kit from NBK Design – the free one that you can still grab HERE (but make sure you grab it soon, in case the link expires! the kit is not available in the store as Nicole made it especially for us for this challenge), plus the word Inspire and the stripes/dots over the frame that came from Journal and Filler Cards, Set B. The word “inspire” was extracted from a card, and I re-colored the teal paper to a pink for my background.  The photo, in case you’re wondering is me and my Dad, c. 1969.

Our winner for this week’s game is Hannah (slwhew). Hannah’s already won a game before, but she’s right here, each and every week, playing along … and how easy is that?!  A free kit plus two other items from your stash (or items you grabbed during the designers’ sale).   Congratulations, Hannah!  Remember, the games run for one week, and one week only – Monday through Sunday.  Missed this past week’s game?  You can still score some awesome deals in the NBK Design storeeverything’s still 41% off until June 25


Well, I’d better go see how my data recovery is going on that EHD – keep your fingers crossed for me, please!  Until next time … happy scrapping!

This week’s layouts have been chosen by: Romy

Studio Romy and Romy’s Gallery

Hello everybody! I went browsing the gallery after two weeks of vacation and boy, so many gorgeous pages!!

First one to grab my attention was DREAM by Jacqueline. Beautiful brushwork gives the layout nice soft feel.

THIS IS HAPPINESS from mrphoto is an example of a perfect blocked design, with a great color combination.

This layout SHOW MUST GO ON is an eyecatcher! The marks and the bold, geometric shapes suggest power and strong will. Well done, Katja, a. k. a.DoggiNo!

I have a thing for unusual formats. GENERAL INTHANON’S SHRINE by mimisgirl is a wonderfully balanced design, its weight well positioned on towards the bottom. Great shadow work!

Even without the title you can feel the dreaminess, depth and the sense of something mysterious. Love the all-purple hues which make the pageDREAM by any-libelle even more feminine.
