Time flies! I cannot believe it's already Thursday (I can't believe January is almost over either...).
This post should have happened more around Monday, to show you danimoy designs new release... but here it is at last! It's a really cute kit called Bubble Bath (it's only 2$50 and the preview is linked...):

Here's my little man in his bubble bath (which we do fairly rarely as he eats the bubbles...

New goodies

There were a couple of CT releases this week-end and then, there's a very special kit I want to tell you about. Keep reading ;)

Friday, Artgal Style released Feel the Burn, a fun and bright exercise and healthy living themed kit (on sale for a few more days, preview linked to the store):

Yesterday was national hugging day, which is just a very cute occasion, isn't it? Simple Girl Scrap released an adorable, fresh kit to celebrate. It's called Hugs All Around:

Isn't it just adorable, with all those cute faces and fresh colours? I love it!
And I quite like the layout I made with it too, with my men hugging:

Simple Girl Scrap is also celebrating a year at ScrapDelicious and her whole store is 30% off (the discount shows up in the cart), so go do a little shopping ;)
And she has cute freebies to coordinate with Hugs All Around on her blog and on her Facebook page.

Last but definitely not least, I want to show you my favourite kit EVER while it's on sale :D
A few months ago, I won a contest on Captivated Visions' blog. She asked for ideas, colours schemes, etc. for a kit and picked a winner who would win their own custom kit. I submitted my ideas and colours for a kit about yoga, which is my way of feeling better, both in body and mind, and to stay centered and healthy. I was sooooo lucky to find out that she picked me and now the kit is out! YAY!!!
It's an absolute beauty, with gorgeous colours, amazing papers and elements and great versatility. It's much more than about yoga, it's about balance, about being focused, about serenity. It's on sale and really affordable, especially considering all the goodies you get, trust me!! It's called A Way of Life:

All the previews are linked to her store at Scrap Orchard, don't miss the sale price!!
Her CT made amazing layouts with the kit, and my sad attempts at scrapping don't come close, but I started using it right away. First, I used it for the insert to my water bottle (I know it's a funny use, but it's my brand new bottle for the gym and yoga class and I thought it made sense):

And in the bottle it looks like this:

I am also working with it for a custom purse, but I think I'll wait until I have the final product (the purse itself) to show you!

Well, that's it for tonight. Thanks for looking!

Happy New Year, scrappy bloggers!!

I know it's late-ish to say Happy New Year, but I hope it brings all good things to everyone!!

I can't possibly show you all I've done since I last blogged, but here's an update for the beginning of 2012. In RL we came back from France, my son Cédric caught a virus, so not much happened and I can't believe it's already the 17th... In scrappy life, that gave me time to scrap a bit more (as I couldn't clean or go anywhere with him at home) and the designers I scrap for have been designing lots, so I have lots to show.

Artgal Style will have a new kit this Friday, but in the meantime, here's what came out last Friday. The kit is absolutely gorgeous and a must-have for scrappers with boys or man to scrap. For me, it matched my son's new hat so well it's like the kit was made for it. It's called Chronograph and still on sale for a few days (preview linked):

She also released Say It Ain't So (which I missed as I was still on holidays :( ):

danimoy designs was busy too! First was Easy Living, a really nice countryside type of kit:

I used it for a pic of a little walk in the French countryside on January 1st!

Then she released Heaven Sent, a gorgeous collab with A+ Designs:

I used it for the photos of my first Mother's day as a Mom. They were taken with a video camera rather than a camera and came out a little greenish, especially with the green wall behind, and somehow it works pretty well with this kit :D

Simple Girl Scraps came out with a really fun kit for New Year's Day appropriately called Happy New Year:

I used it for my January desktop:

Then she released a fun kit to get people started on a healthier year. It's called Make It Happen, as is the challenge she's hosting at ScrapDelicious:

I used this one for my "design your own" water bottle:

And finally, I used Colie's Corner's Let Renovate, to participate in her Sunday Brunch Crunch (template) challenge. Here are the kit and my layout with our 2011 improvements to our house:

So, I know lots of you scrap this much all the time, but for me it had been a while since I scrapped this much in 10 days (and I did two more I can't show you yet...).
Thanks for looking, leave me a little hello if you have time ;)
