Hi all,

this is my last post on this blog - most of you will be aware by now that I changed my designer name to "Carin Grobe Design". I will continue to post freebies, blog trains and all other news on my new blog (and all the content of this blog has been moved there, as well), so if you like me and my designs, make sure you subscribe or bookmark the new site:

I just posted more about the name change and the sale over there, so why don't you go and have a look?

Looking forward to seeing you all there - have a great day!

Knights and Dragons - right now 30 % off

After doing the sweet and soft Lakeside Fairies, I felt like doing another fantasy kit - but this time for the boys! Presenting "Dragonheart Castle" - a wonderful magical place where most noble knights in shining armor live together with their dragon friends, protecting the country from the evil black knight.

This kit will provide you not only with cute elements to scrap your favorite little hero but also gorgeous realistic textures and elements to help you create layouts for your favorite grown-up hero or your renaissance fair pictures or that visit to a medieval castle.

It's also the perfect kit to scrap pictures of your little girl knight or princess (whether she needs to be rescued from a tower or is a dragon friend herself) ...

Also available: a pack of matching cardstock ...

... and the great Dragonskin Alphas - created to give your layout titles that special touch with their awesome texture. They come in 4 beautiful jewel colors: sapphire (blue), ruby (red), emerald (green) and topaz (yellow)

... and if you want them all, you can save by picking up the Dragonheart Castle Bundle


There are some beautiful layouts already in my designer gallery - and if you feel like picking up a wonderful freebie QP, just hop on over to theStudio blog. Toiny posted a great shadow tutorial with two freebies, the QP and a shadow style!

Featured Designer - Sale and Freebie Add-on

Hi all - it's my turn to be Featured Designer at theStudio! And while I'm all excited to see the wonderful pages created in the Featured Designer Challenge I hope you're excited about what that means for you:

This new collection is all springy, soft, cute, girly...I had so much fun creating it and can hardly wait to find the time to scrap all those little girl pictures of my daughter. Oh, and my waterlily pictures - some of them made it into the kit, as extracted flowers ;)

While writing this I just realized I haven't shown you any of my February creations yet... eeek, I'm such and awful blogger!
So here they are:

First there's my "Baby Bear Collection" - bright and fun colors for all those babies and toddlers that - like mine - don't "do" pastels, LOL ...

My Valentine's Day kit was very "tweet" this year, here's "Tweet Love" ;)

Then I did a kit that's a little bit different from my usual style, "Venice Nights", but I love how this turned out, with all the lace and velvet that makes you want to touch it.

Last but not least, there are two collabs:

"Winter Woods" a collaboration between Piggyscraps Designs, Aimee Harrison Design Studios and Deli Scraps.

"It's my Birthday" - a collab between Nibbles Skribbles, eqrAveziur, Snips & Snails, Moon Designs and Deli Scraps

"It's my Birthday"

Wow, that was a lot - I will do my best, trying to get better at keeping you updated!!

Have a great time (and don't forget to pick up the blog train freebie in the post below!!)!

New kit and a freebie

Happy New Year! :D I hope you all had a fantastic Holiday season...
The beginning of a new year is a time of making plans and resolutions - did you? I know I did, lol - one of them is trying to catch up on my scrapbooking, there are so many pics that deserve to be in a layout so we will still know the who and when and where and why in a couple of years. This thought did set my mood for my new kit (on sale for a limited time!): Capture the moment - a non-seasonal kit, dedicated to all those everyday pictures and camera-loving scrappers. Here's a look at the kit:

There's also a couple of addons and a bundle:

...and a freebie for you to enjoy:

Happy Scrapping!
