Pickin' Pumpkins by Ponytails Designs and a free template by me!

Hello All!
Today I helped to host a speed scrap for one of my designers QueenWild Scrapsand was able to use a kit from one of my other great designers Ponytails Designs! I used a wonderful kit called Pickin' Pumpkins. This is one of my fav kits of heres! It is available at Ginger Scraps and Scraps N Pieces. Here is a look at the kit. 
For the speed scrap I created a template to go along with my instructions. If you did not get the chance to participate and get the coupon from QueenWild Scraps I would love for you to still create a layout with the template! You can download it here

Wandering by Ponytails Designs and a Freebie!

Sometimes you need a change of scenery to gain a new perspective on a situation. Or sometimes you just need a change of mind or heart. We all have our moments of searching or yearning for something new, better, or different. "Wandering" helps you express some of those thoughts and feelings in a fun and original way. Think of it like a journey of self-discovery! Or maybe you don't need to dig deep and you just want to create a page about a hiking trip or nature trail... Wandering works just fine for that too! With fun themed elements, along with wordy bits that help express your thoughts, you'll have a variety of ways to scrap your pages. You're only limited by your imagination! Wandering is 30% off this week!

Witches Brew by Ponytails Designs!

Witches brew... a new release from Ponytails Designs

“When witches go riding,
And black cats are seen,
The moon laughs and whispers,
‘Tis near Halloween.”
- Author Unknown
Are your little witches ready to brew up some fun this Halloween? Decorate your pages with these bright colors, super cute witches and all their friends! Something so cute can’t be wicked… or can it?
I happened to come across this funny little cartoon as I was looking for the little poem above.  It cracked me up, so I thought I’d share it here with you.  I have a friend who calls herself a Witch, albeit somewhat jokingly, and actively practices Wicca.  She’s one of the nicest people I know… a real Earth Mother, who grows her own veggies and tries to live very naturally.
Now, on to the goodies!  For the GS Buffet this month, the colors just screamed Halloween to me, and since it’s that time of year I thought I’d create some fun little witches and critters to adorn your pages.  So here’s my own little Witch’s Brew for you… and don’t forget that they’re all 50% off the first week!
The bundle will be available later on, but for this first week it’s a way better deal to grab the individual parts are 50% off.

And now a couple of freebies for you.  The first you can grab on PONYTAILS DESIGNS FACEBOOK page…
It’s a set of date stick blanks that match Witch’s Brew.  (There’s a dated one in the element pack.)
And next I have this fun little bonus journal card for you right here!
Enjoy, and have a “wickedly” wonderful week!
