Awesome Kit of the Month Still Available for July

July 7, 2009 at 7:49 pm Leave a comment

Well, I did it.  I just bought my first kit from a scrapbooking kit club called  I’m totally excited about it because I could not put these elements together, and I keep loving these colors when I’m seeing them this summer.  LOVE the retro look, but I can’t swing it on my own.

Most kits I’ve seen for July with these colors are already sold out or priced too high for my taste.

It’s not as if I don’t have enough scrapbook paper to wallpaper the house at this point, but I love how it’s all retro and coordinated for me.  I love that you don’t have to be a member to get better rates or anything like that.  A huge bonus for me.  No obligation or having to email every month if you don’t want it.  I’d never remember!

Here it is:

Papers are Cosmo Cricket, Scribble Scrabble, and American Crafts.

I think it will also coordinate with other lines I have and am using a lot right now.  I just LOVE this red and green together!

It could have only made me more happy if it were this color in an aged polka dot red {sigh}.

But, I think it will be a lot of fun.  It’s from this website.  I thought the price was reasonable and shipping was $5.95 if you want to know…I had to check out to find out.

It is very floral, but hopefully I’ll find a use for it.  I love cards with these sorts of colors right now.   Maybe a book for just my photos?  Cards?  Who knows?  I wonder if anyone else has ever used a kit?  What’s your fav?

I’ve spent some time today sketching a few layouts I like, hoping to scraplift them just for fun.  After a couple month’s stint trying the challenge-design team thing, it feels good to just go with the flow and create however it feels best for the day again!  My creative moods change a lot and it’s a great freedom to get to follow them and not be tied to deadlines and posting expectations.

My fun right now…in between the cleaning of the pool, checking the garden for veggies, running kids, doing laundry, cleaning, and cooking!  What’s your “fun thing” you make time for, just for the joy it brings you?

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)

"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
