Hope you had a Happy (Inter)National Scrapbook Day. We wanted to end the day with 1 more giveaway from Webster's Pages. Visit my instagram to enter to win my new #Happy collection. It's the perfect celebration collection for so many occasions.
For this National Scrapbook Day, I'm doing something a little different. As some of you may have heard, I'm now working at Mixbook as the Art Director. I've been there 1 month, and so far it's been a lot of fun. Mixbook has some really great designs for photo books, cards, calendars and address labels. We are constantly adding new designs each month, and have other exciting plans for the future.
One of my favorite features is that you can upload any of your digital stickers or background to use in your Mixbook projects. This is a great way to personalize your projects with some of your favorite digital designs. You can also choose from many of the popular designs available on the site.
To celebrate National Scrapbook Day, Mixbook having a giveaway on Instagram. Visit my instagram @allisonkreft and @mixbook for details on how to enter to win a $50 gift card.
For the first time ever, Mixbook is giving away free digital stickers and paper pack downloads! Visit the Mixbook blog to get the high res designs. These elements are great to use for digital scrapbooking and you can also upload them to use in your own Mixbook projects.
My new collection #Happy with Webster's Pages will be shipping the beginning on March. #Happy includes gorgeous papers, stickers, paperclips, enamel dots, vellums & gold foil to help you celebrate & document any occasion!
Spoonflower just announced new minky fabric. I'm so excited, I will be making lots of projects with this in the future, it's so cuddly & soft. I was also happily surprised that they used my Hot Air Balloon and Hexagon fabrics for one of their featured projects on their website.
Here's some photos from my trip last week to CHA. I released a new collection for Webster's pages called #Happy at this show. I'll post more details about the collection soon, (it's shipping in Febrary.) As always it was a fantasic show and I loved meeting new people and seeing so many friends. Thank you so much to everyone who stopped by.
It's that time of year again! I've been busy blowing glass for a number of art shows and craft fairs I've been participating in. I always like to update my etsy shop with some new hand-blown glass pumpkins and ornaments. You can visit my store here. \
I'm so excited to finally share a special project I've been working on. I designed a baby book template with @Shutterfly There's color options for boys or girls, the style is called Noah's Ark. It's loosely based after Hello World, but I made some changes to keep it simple & modern with a few cute animals and other images. I can't wait to create my own book for my daughter and share it here. You can check it out and make you own book at Shutterfly now :)
This month I was invited to be featured as the guest DT at Studio Calico. It was very inspiring to use the Walden Scrapbook Kit & Project Life kit. Here are a few projects I created for Studio Calico and you can see more at my gallery there.

I wanted to share this layout I created using my Sprinkled with Love collection from Websters Pages. I used the lightbulb paperclips on twine to make it look like they are hanging. You can get the collection at your favorite LSS, Websters Pages and also 2 Peas.
Idecided to make a pinata for my daughter's birthday. I followed these instructions from this OhHappyDay tutorial, but made a few minor changes. I used washi tape to hold it together. To make the scallops even I created a cardboard template and traced it with a pencil. I also used a glue runner to adhere the tissue paper. I was afraid the Elmer's glue would be too messy with 2 littles running around. It turned out great, and held up perfect during the party and broke when the last kid hit it. It was definetly a labor of love, but it won't stop me from making one again in the future.
