SNEAK PEEK - enter to WIN!!

Hello Digiland and Happy Day!  With my "new" name change at the beginning of the month, my amazing Creative Team has helped me in doing some new stuff here on the blog.  With their help, we have had giveaways all month, freebie after freebie, gorgeous eye candy, some throw back fun, and now you will get to meet the faces behind all of the gorgeous layouts you see here on the blog.  With that, said - there have been some bumps on the road, and most of those caused by me!  Go figure!  Last week, there SHOULD have been a sneak peek of My Comfort with a chance to win, but alas, I dropped the ball on that one!  So today's sneak peek is a chance to win AND a chance to win My Comfort in a retroactive sort of a way :)  Hip Hip Hooray there will be 2 winners picked on Saturday 1/28 and announced Sunday 1/29.  Without further ado, here is this week's sneak peek that will release on Friday 1/27/12.  It's a bit funky and lots of fun and if only you could see behind the scenes the layouts the Gems are making - WOW!

As always, leave a comment on THIS post to be entered to win!

Good Morning!

Deanna is here to bring you a short HELLO from the Amber Shaw team. 
I live in southern California, and we're expecting a big rain storm today.  We are praying it is a bigger storm than the last storm that was predicted.  We received a few drops of rain here, but nothing like was predicted!!  And we need the rain so badly!!   I hope the weather where you are is nice today.  I know parts of the US are expecting really bad weather today. 

My sister is visiting me from Arizona.  It's the first time we've been together in 3 or 4 years.  We're having a marvelous time together.  Yesterday my oldest granddaughter came over and we made some cards in my scrapbook room.  It was the first time the scrapbook room has been used in about 3 months!  I really SHOULD do something about that--either get rid of all my paper things or make some things with it!!  I really do enjoy working with real stuff once in awhile.  I'm NOT a card maker by choice--and I have WAY too much stuff to think I would EVER use it all up just making cards!!  I love all the paper albums I've made over the 16 years I paper scrapped.  I love that when my grandchildren come for a visit that they look through the albums and giggle. 

What is a girl to do when her interest changes?  I'm now fully immersed in the digi-world.  I love everything about it.  Besides that,  I need a guest room, so the writing is on the wall--sooner or later, that beloved scrapbook room SHOULD become my much needed guest room!  --but when? and what do I do with all the "stuff" I collected over the 16 years I paper scrapped?  I'm too frugal to just get rid of it all!!  It was pretty expensive!!  I've given a lot of it away already--but there are TONS more still in that room!! 

Well, I guess I'll be like Scarlett O'Hara and worry about it tomorrow!  I don't like to tax my head so early in the morning.  It's time to get ready for church--I hope you all have a great day, and don't forget to check out Amber's newest release--MY COMFORT here in the store:
Isn't it beautiful?  It's one of my favorites, but then ALL of Amber's kits end up being "one of my favorites!"  She's really a wonderful designer!!  Thanks for stopping by this morning!  Hope and pray you all have a great week!!  May God Bless you and your family.

CT Spotlight - meet Amy!

HAPPY SATURDAY EVERYONE!!  I am having my first CT Spotlight of many more to come.  I have the pleasure and honor of having such an amazing, creative, and kindest team of girls that I just have to show them off!  Today we are going to talk about Amy! -- and just in case you are wondering, she actually spells her name with the "!", isn't that awesome?  Amy! has been with me for nearly 2 years and her work never ceases to amaze me.  I got down right personal with Amy! and this is what she had to say:

1. Can you tell us a little about yourself?  I’ve been with the hubby since 1991. I’ll be 40 this Feb. Surprised smile eek! and I have an 8 year old son. My greatest accomplishment.  Actually I’m a pretty boring girl...usually. But I do like to have fun from time to time. 

2. How long have you been digital scrapbooking?   First place I registered was Aug. 2007

3. How would you describe your scrapbooking style?  Total work in progress. I started with wanting the old paper I’m totally addicted to clusters.. Shadow and cluster work is what I’m working on to improve. always learning!

4. What are your scrap habits?  Music, TV, coffee, special snack or time?  My computer sits right next to the I sit and play while the TV is on. usually while the hubby and son are out or in bed.

5. What software do you create on and what camera do you use?   I’m poor Winking smile so I’m working with old equipment...but both are decent and get the job done. Canon 20D and PSE6 (which btw I’ve misplaced the disk) knock on wood nothing happens.

6. What is your favorite 'go to" digi item when making a page? Templates!

7. When you are not scrapbooking, what are you doing?  Not Scrapbooking ?! really? heehe, no seriously living life like everyone else. Taking care of the house and family. Taking pictures, thinking of the next LO.
8. What is something funny that has happened to you recently? hmmmm, again, I’m boring. Can’t recall anything at the moment. I know, no fun.
9. What is one thing about you that people are surprised to learn?  I’m a young, sexy, funky girl stuck in the wrong body. So anything sexy and/or funky I love.

10.What is your fave Amber Shaw kit and why?  ooh boy let’s see...thinking thinking...ok, I really love all your flowers and pretty stuff but I’m going with a new one that’s a lil different and comes right to mind. Being a Mom to one wild kid and a big sexy man/hubby I’ll say, My Man.

Here are some of Amy!'s favorite layouts made from Amber Shaw kits, with her comments.  Check out this talent!

This is my BFF and I. These are my fav colors..notice my scarf...I love this lil mini (funky club vol. 2, week 8, amethyst) I think Amber should bring it back filled with more goodies.

Fresh and clean LO created with Delaney

This one came together very quickly using a Yesterday’s Cluster

A perfect match for my pictures of my son's themed birthday party. A collab called Paradise Falls

and a recent LO featuring my husband Jary, created with my new favorite kit - My Man

Isn't Amy!'s work just amazing??  I think so and to end this post - I will tell you 2 things.  Since My Man is Amy!'s favorite kit, it will be on sale at 30% off for the week.  Grab it while it's at a discount.  Secondly, I am going to show  you one of my favorite layouts of hers.

This layout Amy! created with Life is a Journey, is one of my favorites for many reasons.  I love that her whole family is in the layout , her journaling is sweet, and composition is fantastic.  Amy!'s clustering always blows me away and in this layout, it is no exception.  I also love how she used pops of the red so tastefully.

Thank you all for reading today's CT Spotlight.  I hope as scrappers and artist you have been able to draw inspiration from Amy!  I know I always do!  Enjoy your Saturday and be blessed!

New Release ... "My Comfort"

I am a huge fan of praise and worship music. I've been singing on our church's praise team for more years than I would like to admit (!!) and I've seen songs come and go. But one praise song that I think will stand the test of time is one of my favorites, "Shout to the Lord" written by Chris Tomlin. The beautiful lyrics and perfect harmonies still give me chills when I sing it. So I was very pleased when I saw that Amber used this song as the inspiration for her latest kit, "My Comfort". Whether you use this kit for spiritual and faith pages, heritage layouts or any other special moment or memory, you will fall in love with its soft colors and elegant elements.

And look at all the gorgeousness that CT Gems have come up with:

Thanks for following us on the blog. As a gift to you, we'd like to offer a beautiful cluster made by Lynette using this new kit. Click on the preview to download. Enjoy!

Peace and blessings,
Glynis (for Designs by Amber Shaw)
