Simply Betty Stamps Release Day!

So sorry for the late post today, peeps!  I've been at the doctor's office all day waiting to be squeezed in.  I managed to get poison ivy all over my face this weekend and it was starting to sweel my eye shut.  Oh, the joys of yard work, eh?  I got a bajillion prescriptions, so hopefully it'll start getting better soon.

All of that being said, it another release day at Simply Betty Stamps today!  Woot!  My favey line again...this time the Teen Scene line is going Back 2 Skool!  How fun!

First up is Mad Scientist Christian.  Doesn't he look like his little experiment was an epic failure?  LOL! 

The next image I have for you is called Prom Queen Rio.  I gothed her out so I could use my new EP Apothecary Emporium paper, also purchased from SBS!  Love, love, love this line!  :O)

Be sure to check out the SBS blog for special deals and all the inspiration you can handle from the other teamies!  :O)

Preview Day for Simply Betty Stamps!

Good morning all!  I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend.  I'm here to share another sneaky peek of tomorrow's release over at Simply Betty Stamps!  Back 2 Skool with the Teen Scene kids!

There are 3 images previewing today and tomorrow we'll show you the other 3 and you can shop till you drop!  First up I have Pile of Books Miller.  I remember these days... I used some BG Lollipoppe Shoppe that I've been hoarding.  I thought it was a good time to use what with all the letters/numbers on it. 

Next up I have Artist London for you.  Her canvas comes blank, but I added in her little skully drawing.  I love that paper from Creative Imaginations and the big black skull is a jewelry embellie I got on clearance.  :O)

Be sure to come back by tomorrow for the other cuties!  Thanks for stopping by!

A Spooky Halloween

Good afternoon everyone!  I'm hopping on today with a new challenge over at Simply Betty Challenges!  Today is all about gettin' SKETCHY with it!  Nah nah nah nah nah nah!  Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah NAH! 

Everyone seemed to go gaga over my digital layout for the latest release of the Teen Scene Halloween line, so I thought I'd make up another one for you all!  (May I mention that the Teen Scene line is available to customers as rubber only.  The DT get the digi version as a perk to being on the team...not to mention it's easier and less expensive on the boss!)  I used Mummy London for my layout today along with photos of my punkin carvin'.  Spooky!  I used the sketch over at Sketches in Thyme for this one.

We can't wait to see what sketch you use!  Check out the SBC blog for all the deets and all the inspiration pieces as well!  ;O)

Simply Betty Release Day!

Good morning everyone!  It's here!  Simply Betty Stamps' Teen Scene Halloween is released today!  You will definitely want to head over to the blog and check out the specials and then run, don't walk, over to the SBS Store to buy them all for yourself! 

I'm starting out with Lola Addams for my first card.  Oh yeah!  We have some of the Teen Scenes posing as The Addams Family...aren't they fab?  I used the sketch over at Deconstructed Sketches for this one.  The sentiment is from an ABS set.

Last sample for you has both Christian and Betty Addams.  OMG, are they not so awesome?  I decided to do a little digital layout using an old Halloween photo of my hubby and I.  I colored the images in Photoshop.  What do you think?

Thanks so much for coming by today!  Don't forget to check out the Simply Betty Stamps blog for your chance to win and get all the deets on the sale!

I'm here with a new challenge over at Simply Betty Challenges.  The new theme?  ANYTHING HALLOWEEN!  As you all know, we LOVE Halloween!  If you missed it, we released some new Sweet Gothic Kids images last week in the Halloween genre, so that's what we have all used for the challenge.  I made a cute little milk carton treat box and used Franken-Scott for the tag.  He is too fun, right?!

Mermaids Galore - Release Day at Simply Betty Stamps!

Good morning everyone!  I had a couple of posts that were supposed to go live yesterday and didn't due to a debilitating migraine.  I woke up with the blasted, so my little "magic" pill didn't do a damn thing.  :O(  It lasted all day long too.  I'm feeling a bit better today, but not back to normal just yet.

The reason for this post...Simply Betty Stamps has released a new line of digital stamps today...Merkids!!!  They are uber cute!  I have Summer up first for you.  I used a Taylored Expressions stamp set for the sentiment along with Copics to color.  Some yummy MME paper and Star Dust pen for her tail, and we're set!

Last one I have for you is Broomhilda.  How could our beloved Betty not give us a Halloween Merkid?  :O)

Be sure to pop on over to the SBS blog to see all the amazing samples and for a chance to win 4 different images, Broomhilda included!  ;O)
