May Customer Spotlight!

Hello everyone! **Holly** here with my first Lyndsay blog post! I was so excited to get to pic this months customer spotlight and found Karen32 while browsing the gallery! Here is what she had to say!

Tell me a little about yourself!

I am a 38 year old, stay at home mom of 2 boys. My oldest will be 12 soon and my youngest just turned 10. We live in colorful Colorado and when I am not scrapbooking I love to be outdoors enjoying the mountains. I have paper scrapped for years, but finally tried digital scrapping last November and quickly got hooked! I also do full time daycare for my nieces (7 and 4 years old) and another 2 year old. Before my kids were born I was an accountant and can definitely see myself doing something like that again in the next few years, probably when my youngest niece goes to kindergarten.

What is your favorite Lyndsay Riches kit?
My favorite Lyndsay Riches' kits that are currently in my stash are Boy Oh Boy and Urban Boyz.

I would love to get A Love Affair, Mommy Deerest and Playful.

How did you discover Scrap Orchard/Lyndsay Riches?
Shortly after I started scrapping I saw something on facebook for Project: Love, Me by SuzyQ Scraps and Ziggle Designs at Scrap Orchard. I loved all the stuff at the Orchard, Lyndsay and the other designers do such an amazing job. Boy Oh Boy was my first kit by Lyndsay and I remember going onto the Orchard forums and raving about it.

What are your favorite elements to use when scrapping?
I absolutely love papers, both patterned and solid. I usually decide whether or not to buy a kit based on the papers and their color palette. I also love swirls and scrolls and flowers. I am so thankful I have nieces to scrap and not just my boys, because they don't like the flowery stuff so much. :)

Show me your favorite layouts using Lyndsay's kits!

Thanks for letting me interview you!

If you would like to be featured be sure to keep uploading those pages to Lyndsay's gallery and you might be next!

Blast From the Past: Spring Fresh

Our family room is affectionately known as “the blue room” because the walls are a deep royal blue. Even though we’ve lived in this house for nearly 6 years, the blue room has never been decorated beyond the painted walls, furniture we already had, and a few framed photos. (Since none of you have been to my house to say differently, let me assure you that every other room is up to House Beautiful standards. Of course. You believe me, right?) There’s no large scale redecorating project in the blue room’s near future, but lately I’ve been feeling the need to brighten things up a little. I’m still at the thinking stage, but I keep coming back to one of my favorite color palettes: blue, brown, cream, yellow, and green.

So it’s no surprise that today’s Blast From the Past kit, Spring Fresh, holds a place near and dear to my heart. I love the peaceful colors and paper pieced elements, and it was one of the first kits I got to scrap with after joining Lyndsay’s team.

There are so many fabulous layouts in the Scrap Orchard gallery using Spring Fresh! Here are a few of my favorites, some of which are from the CT and even Lyndsay herself.

Tiffanyberg’s Sisters layout:

Lisa_mommy2two’s Growing Up Together:

Ccmentor’s Cute:

Catgoddess’s Sweet Feet:

And finally, Lyndsay’s Sadie:

If this kit inspires you as much as it does me, you’re in luck! Here’s a coupon code to go pick up Spring Fresh for 40% off at Scrap Orchard!

Code: LRMaYBlaST

Expiration date: May 31st

Happy Scrapping,

Featured Free Font!

Hey everyone! Welcome to my very first "Featured Free Font" post!

One thing you might not know about me...I am addicted to fonts - although I'll bet many of you can say the same thing! I decided to start sharing some of my favourite free font finds from around the web!

Today's Featured Free Font is:
{Click HERE or on the Image above to visit for download}

This is a great font for scrapbook pages! It's fun, it's a little bit doodley and has a great freehand feel. It also looks good at large sizes, and works at small sizes for journalling, too, which you can see on my layout here:

Enjoy your new free font!
