Such a Smarty Pants by Dream Big Designs

Cheri has a new kit coming out today that is a twist on the school kit. Usually you find lots of primary colors and childish kits for school, which is great for all those little kiddos, but Cheri's new kit has a more mature approach to the school kit. It's perfect for high school and beyond!

Here's the LO that I made to celebrate my oldest daughter's entry into her new school as a junior.

It's on sale right now over at ScrapMatters. Happy Scrapping!

Time for a Vault Sale with Kellybell Designs!

It's time to do some house cleaning at Kellybell's Store to make room for upcoming fresh and fabulous new kits. While the saying "Out with the old and in with the new" can be invigorating and exciting, saying goodbye to an old Kellybell kit can be a very sentimental parting. This week, Kelly is having a vault sale of 60% off 4 kits and their matching word art that will then be retired to the vault forever.

Let's take a closer look at these kits and their matching word art. First up is 'Blooming In Adversity', a lovely kit with an Oriental touch that's fabulous for scrapping Asian themed layouts.

Whether it's at Disney, on a cruise, or just by the pool….it’s the easiest way to get ready for the summer season!

Inspired by the Contemporary Resort, 'Modern Magic' has a posh, modern, almost retro feel to it. Great for scrapping your resort stays, dining experiences and rides on the monorail, this kit has many uses. 'Modern Magic' is full of 16 rich papers, and more than 45 amazing modern and architectural elements (check out the monorail and adorable furniture pieces!) and a full alpha with a brushed metal look and a little glamorous glow!

If you're ready for a road trip, 'Are We There Yet' is all about getting to our favorite place, Disney!!! Need the perfect kit for Magical Express pictures, Test Track, Indy Speedway, Richard Petty Driving Experience, a bus ride or even your teenager's first driving experience - well, look no further! This kit has 15 bright and vibrant papers and is full of fun roadtrip elements like airplanes, road signs, bus, stop light, suitcases and much more.

Have a magical beginning with Kellybell Designs!

Disneyland opened to the public on July 18, 1955. It was the only theme park to be directly designed and built by Walt Disney himself. Disneyland was dedicated by Walt Disney with these words...

"To all who come to this happy place: Welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past, and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams, and the hard facts that have created America, with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world."

It truly is a fun and magical place that has delighted millions of visitors. Today, Kelly has a new kit inspired by the beginnings of Disneyland called.....
