Scraps N’ Pieces Blog Train!

May is half over and Spring is in full force across most of the United States. When I very first saw the colors for this pallet my mind immediately went to spring flowers, butterflies and my Grandmother. The beautiful purple in this color pallet was my Granny’s favorite color. As many of you know, this past weekend was Mother’s Day, so armed with this beautiful set of colors I created a floral Mother’s Day kit entitled “To Mother, With Love”, which you can purchase for 30% off from now until May 22nd at my store at Scraps N’ Pieces!

Post iNSD weekend catching up!

Did everyone survive iNSD weekend? I did, but my paypal account did not! Whew!! I don’t know about you, but I hit some great sales! Now I just need to find time to unzip this mountain of files that are tucked away in a file on my desktop labeled “iNSD – Needs Sorted”. That may be there awhile! Maybe I can get it sorted and put away before the shopping rush in October… But I won’t hold my breath!

Many of you may have heard me talking on Facebook about the grab bag I did with Karen Diamond Designs. My half is called “Picking up the pieces” and her half is called “Broken”. Over iNSD weekend, we bundled it together in one grab bag and sold it in her store at SNP and my store at GDS. While that sale is now over, we are offering our parts separately at all of our individual stores now! lrd_putp_newsletteradFrom now until May 16th you can get my bundle at either store for 30% off! You can visit my Scraps N Pieces store HERE or my Go Digital Scrapbooking store HERE.

With Mother’s Day this weekend, I also have a special Mother’s Day kit coming out. The monthly Scraps N’ Pieces blog train will be stopping by on this very blog next week (The 15th to be exact) and I will have a little freebie that matches this kit. Here is a sneak peek of my upcoming kit entitled “To Mother, With Love” which will be releasing next Thursday, May 15th. It will be 30% off from May 15th until May 22nd. lrd_tmwl_sneakpeak

Picking up the Pieces & Broken – Collab Reveal by LyllahRaven Designs & Karen Diamond Designs!

By now I am sure you have read us talking about the collaboration that Karen Diamond and I are doing together. I have enjoyed working with Karen so much, as I have been a fan of hers even before I ventured into designing. When she approached me about collaborating on this kit, I was beyond excited! And Karen is such a beautiful soul inside and out, and has been such a joy to work with.


Karen Diamond Designs and LyllahRaven Designs teamed up together and created 2 kits using the same color palette. Broken by Karen Diamond Designs is an art journaling kit that will get you started towards good old art therapy of removing your mask of grief, depression, and mourning. When your heart has been broken, or your life has been turned upside down, putting the pieces of your life back together again is part of the healing process and LyllahRaven Designs kit, Picking up the Pieces, will help you do just that!!

Both kits, with 12 add-on’s including templates, quick pages, clusters, labels, words, torn paper pieces, stacker, glitter sheets, cardstock, word strips, graffiti, and brushes (abr included), values easily at over $45 is on sale for only $5 for iNSD. Available at in Karen Diamond Designs store & LyllahRaven Designs store from May 1st through May 8th as one purchase!

Have you ever felt broken? So deep in that dark place that you think, you are sure you will never see the light again? Maybe the loss of a loved one? a child? or even the loss of a beloved pet? It could be the loss of a job or your home or any number of things. Death, anxiety, and depression. The thought that nothing will ever stop the tears. This new art journal kit is just what you need for some good old art therapy. Take off that ” I’m fine” mask you wear every day and let yourself be comforted. Dig deep, find that hope and faith that the sun will shine in your life again. Your tears may flow from time to time but your smile will temper the pain. Pick up BROKEN and start putting the pieces together again.


Karen will be revealing her pieces on her blog as well! Click the sneak peek above to be taken to her blog in a separate window!

After you have felt yourself break into a million pieces, and you shoulder through the pain and heartache that life throws your way, you come out on the other side a stronger person. When your heart has been broken, or your life has been turned upside down. Putting the pieces of your life back together again is part of the healing process. Learning forgiveness while helping to heal your broken heart isn’t always easy. After the storm has passed, it is time to start PICKING UP THE PIECES.
