NEW Collection!!

“The Turning”  is a Faith Journal collection based upon
1. a principle widely misunderstood: repentance.Usually used in a negative connotation,

true repentance means to change, to do” a 180″  and in doing so, embrace the God quality of life.
2. the turning of the leaves here in the mountain ranges of my region.  Fall has

always been special to my Hubster and me.

Both bring change and beauty!

I’m a major fan of the Grimm Series!
I enjoy the mystery, whimsy and sometimes quirkiness of the episodes.
This collection Volume II and the companion first Volume
are a tribute to the show and the original fairy tales.
Today I am anxiously-on-the-edge-of-my-seat waiting for tomorrow’s new season, AND releasing
Don’t Be So Grimm Volumes I & II !!!!!!


From Elysah

From Amanda

From Birdee


Our little “Grimm Girl” is busy, isn’t she?

Hmmm, think we need a few Vessen and a
“Grimm Boy”! I smell an add- on nearby!!!!!

BOTH volumes are now 30% off for the debut period!


*#* FEAR NOT! Collection by Altered Amanda’s Studio

FEAR NOT! Collection is my response to so many of the things we see
happening in the world, and in a season that features fear.
Fear Not is spoken 365 times in Scripture! 🙂
ATC backgrounds are included in this collection which is currently 20% off!

Truly Brave Collection **

…..This, THIS is SPECIAL. THIS is powerful. Truly Brave is one of a kind.
My niece has AIDS, my nephew has M.S. and a great nephew is Autistic. I wanted to honor them, their families and the struggle that they bravely face daily. Many of us face difficulties in our lives, but if we really weigh them they do not compare to the challenges serious conditions bring. This collection is dedicated to these who are fighting life threatening “dragons” and are truly brave.

The Collection includes The Backgrounds, Typography, Accents and multi-ethnic characters.

This is a Hand Painted with Purpose (CHARITY) PRODUCT: Proceeds from this collection will be donated to ; a ministry dedicated to the reintegration of trafficked girls.

30% OFF for only a few days!!

Hi Everyone!! Christina here from 2CurlyHeadedMonsters Designs!!! I have had a seriously crazy month last month when it comes to designing!! I had been sick most of the summer and couldn’t seem to get my mojo back in order but after having surgery in Sept it came back on me all of a sudden and I seem to have more kits than I have days to release!!!

So here we go!!! The first kit I would like to introduce you to is “Morning Mist” This kit has a gorgeous palette of sage greens and golds. I loved this combination so much that I couldn’t stop making papers!!! This kit can be used for both art journal and traditional scrap. While most of the accents are vintage I added in a few odd pieces for those that like to get a little funky with their art journal or mixed media!! This kit is currently 30% OFF!



My next kit that is also releasing today and is 30% OFF is “Autumn Art” which is a mix of beautiful fall colors!!! You can check it out HERE



I also created this vintage back to school kit “Back in School” which can be found in my store



Available is also my “Moody Babies Bundle” which includes three mini kits that can also be purchased separately (Temper Tantrum, Kiss, Pout !!  The BUNDLE is 40% OFF!



And while I am at it! Let’s not forget this month’s Mixology Boy’s World!!! I created four matching vintage mini kits for your enjoyment!!!  You can shop for these in my store!  Right now they are 40% OFF…that is ONLY $1.20 a pack!




Ok…and can you believe that is IT???  As an added BONUS for having you read such a looooonnng post here is a coupon for an additional 15% OFF your purchase of $3.00 or more in my store!!! Coupon Code: 2chmd_gdsblog_15 Expires Oct 15, 2014

Happy Creating!!




January is here??? How can that be??

Well, it is here and possible!
And so are the coming challenges that I have for you- we stretched a little the past 4 months,
and now we will begin to lift off the ground and reach for the stars!
This month, I am giving everyone a coupon for an ATC kit.
I will be adding two new ones this month to my shoppe.
The coupon will be available at the end of the challenge.
So, what is the challenge for the month??
It has 3 letters…

You are making an ATC this month and we are all going to be swapping them!
This will be a digital swap.

How does this work??
1.Reply to this thread that you want to play. I will pair people up and PM partner names to you.

The partner will be a SECRET until January 15th.

Create your digital A.T.C. sized 2.5×3.5; 300dpi.
ANY theme!
You could always choose one word as your word for the year- if you are in need of inspiration!
Please use 80% GDS products and of course I would like to see some of
my stuff used! lol!

3.On the 15th, your ATC should be pm’d to your partner and vice versa
This means you DO NOT post in the gallery until the 15th of January.

From all the participants I will randomly choose a winning pair.
EVERY participant will get the coupon for a free A.T.C kit mentioned above.

Your A.T.C. is what qualifies you for that gift
