Another Preview for 1 time CT team call

*not all elements shown in previews*

This is the preview for the 2nd of my 3 kits that I am working on... this one obviously is the army, specifically the Soldiers and the National Guard. Remember to scroll down and check out my CT call, it's a one time CT call and for these specific kits. :) Remember these kits are not in the store until next Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving (hmmm... maybe there will be a sale next Friday being black Friday and all???) Oops, kids are wrestling... better get moving! lol.

New Store!!!

Well I've sported the blinkie for a few weeks but I'm finally making this official. I am now part of the snap and scrap girls! I am so thrilled to join their design team and they've really been so sweet, I love it there. Of course I'm not leaving my other stores and still adore the girls at DID and DSB. I just wanted one more store to call home, I think this is plenty for me. lol. Come check out my kits and look around the store at I'm listed by my real name, Christina Anderson.

Special Offer

I am looking for a ONE TIME CT team for this special project. The following are the qualifications:

*An army/navy/marine/sailor/etc wife, spouse, daughter, parent...
*2 layouts per kit
*Display your kits in the galleries requested (more information will be emailed to you if asked).

So what do you need to do to get a FREE kit and work with this new release? Email me at and let me know a few things about you.

1. Link to gallery with recent layouts by yourself
2. Where is your spouse/sibling/child/parent/etc serving in the services (or did if retired)
3. Email

This is a ONE TIME ONLY CT call so you won't be under obligation to continue on my CT team. I just thought this would be a fun way to advertise for myself and, the best part, share some love and give this kit to someone who really needs a pick me up. :) Just so you know, these kits do use artwork by Whimsy Primsy and are cuter styles so they are more geared for a family in the services with children, or just anyone who prefers it with cute graphics. Here is a preview of one of the kits (the naval kit) to give you an idea. I look forward to hearing from you! I will soon be releasing this series of kits and have extra goodies that go along with them. I have been working on naval, army, and air force or as I called them while working " Sea, Land and Air".

*not all elements shown in previews*

Add-on for this kit:
*if there is any other brad/quote you'd like seen speak up now... *

Thank you to those who protect us! I have a SIL who served in Iraq and a BIL who is in the army as a linguist. My husband and I both have members of older generations who served their country as well and we are so grateful, these kits really meant a lot to me and I hope they mean a lot to the rest of you!

Free Alpha

Well I have been working hard on some special projects lately and wanted to share a freebie with you tonight. First here is a layout with one of my newest kits "Santa Claus is coming".

The reason I'm sharing that with you is because, well, a. Santa is holding my kids in that photo from last year (well, 2 of my kids, the baby didn't seem to care as much) ; b. The santa holding them is actually my sweet dad... thanks for doing that for our church party dad! Oh and c. The alphabet I used in the title is actually my freebie tonight! I didn't get a preview made but these are really big letters and they are really elegant. Download them here:

Have a beautiful night! By the way, this free font would make some beautiful monograms!

Free Quick Page

Well I have a freebie for you, this is a quickpage from my newest kit "Pumpkin Picking" available at my stores now. Template is by Sine at scraporchard. This page is 12x12 and 300dpi.

New kits

Well darn, I released a new kit recently I was so excited about but with DSD and everyone in my house getting so sick (ew) I forgot all about it! I made a kit for doctors/nurses. It is mostly because my oldest son, now 4, was born premature and had a cleft in his soft pallet. He's had surgery at a young age, been put through an MRI, and lived in the NICU for the first month of life. I have a respect for doctors and wanted to make a kit for them. It did turn out more for children though, kind of a nod to children who have surgery/illnesses/ever had a boo-boo kind of kit. It's awesome really. :) Once again I used the graphics of the talented "Whimsy Primsy" for the doctors/nurses. Thanks for looking, this kit is for sale here and here and soon will be at yet another store. :)

I also have these new kits for you:
