Don’t miss out on this one as it will be bundled after the after and not sold separately! This sale ends on Monday evening!

We all have a story that has meaning to us, no matter if it means nothing to someone else. This could be a story that has deep felt feelings to everyone or the simple little stories about the walk you had this morning or the baby hawk, I just captured a photograph of in our tree. . It is the reason we are the storytellers with our scrapbooking of layouts. Your family and friends will thank you years from now for all the little memories they forget, but you brought back to their memory.

Hoping that everyone in the states is starting to see Spring pop – since this is the first day of Spring. I know it has here, as the tree’s are blooming, the birds are chirping and the WEEDS are growing like there is no tomorrow.

Hope everyone has a enjoyable weekend and it is spent telling Your Stories!



Getting to know Creative Team – Tammy Morgan

  1. What was the last photo you took on your phone?  My son and step-son playing my two vintage ’70s pinball machines. And why? I have some pics of them playing those machines a few years ago, and they were barely tall enough to reach. Now they’re so grown up, and I wanted the picture as a comparison.
  2. Have you ever pulled over by the police? Hasn’t everybody? And what for? I got a ticket once for running a red light (it was yellow, if you ask me). But the worst part was that I was behind an older woman who was making a left turn. She’d sat through THREE green lights. When she finally received her personal invitation, the light turned yellow and I floored it. Of course a police officer had just pulled up.
  3. What have you always wanted? A husband who treats me like a queen. And did you get it? YEP!!!
  4. What’s the strangest prank call you have ever made? And how long ago was this done? I honestly don’t remember. I have a vague memory of making prank calls when I was in 6th grade, and asking “is your refrigerator running?”… Anything after that is long forgotten!
  5. What is your strongest strengths and weakness? Strengths: When the pressure is on, I can do things that I wouldn’t otherwise be able to. I will take charge and make things happen. Weaknesses: When the pressure is NOT on, I have been known to procrastinate…. LOL!
  6. If you could personally witness  one thing, what would that be? I want to turn on the news tomorrow morning and see/hear the reporters announce that researchers have found a cure for cancer. (Yeah, I know that sounds like something you’d hear as a rehearsed response at a beauty pageant, but it’s the truth. My husband and I have lost so many loved ones to that horrible disease.)
  7. What keys on your computer keyboard don’t you use? The function keys across the top. I pretty much use everything else.
  8. What cheers you up? My husband and my son. Both of them can make me laugh no matter how bad my day is going.
  9. What was the first thing you really thought about after you woke up today? I needed to draw a random winner of a scrapbooking kit, and I didn’t want to forget to do that!
  10. What is the longest you have gone without sleep? And why? Probably about 48 hours, give or take a couple, for about three weeks straight. My father was in the hospital dying (see #5 and #6 above). He couldn’t be left alone for more than an hour or two at a time. My brother and I were taking shifts, but there were still a couple of instances where I was at the hospital for a couple of days straight with no sleep.
  11. Who is your hero and why are they your hero? Real life: Mel Blanc. Holy cow can you imagine being able to voice over 400 cartoon characters?!?! Fictional: The Doctor (cue Doctor Who theme music here). He can travel through all of space and time, and has saved the planet more times than I can count!
  12. Give your best Knock knock Joke!! Knock, knock. / Who’s there? / Lettuce. / Lettuce who? / Lettuce in it’s cold out here.
  13. If you were lucky enough to retire tomorrow, what would you be doing  in a week’s time? I would be travelling! I want to see Germany, Italy, Greece, England, Ireland…
  14. If you had to be trapped In a TV show for a month, what show would it be and why? Bewitched. Because she could clean her entire house by wiggling her nose!
  15. If you could make the sky any color what would it be? I like blue. Blue is a good color. But I really like the colors when the sun is first coming up in the morning. If it could stay like that all the time, that’d be pretty cool.
  16. “Rate yourself on a scale of 1 to 10 how weird you are. Probably about a 6-7. I wouldn’t be terribly weird at all if I were a guy… which is why I’m rather weird for a gal. And even weirder for a mom. But my teenage son’s friends all think I’m the coolest mom they know. So I’m OK with that!
  17. How many hours in a day are you on your computer for fun? About 10-16. I don’t currently work outside the home, so my scrapbooking is what I spend my days doing… and it’s fun!
  18. If you were a dog what would you want your name to be? Kitty. So when someone called me, they’d say “here, Kitty Kitty!” and I’d appear. Oh, and I’d probably be a pitbull or German Shepherd or some other large-ish breed. Yeah, I could work with that.
  19. Do you think some people are mind readers? No, I think some people are just more intuitive than others.
  20. Hoarder or have little belongings? Definitely hoarder. Not like the TV show, but I do have a hard time parting with things. That’s one of the reasons I love DIGITAL scrapbooking…. I can hoard all I want, and it doesn’t take up any physical space! (We did recently have to buy a bigger hard drive, though…)
  21. If you could ask Laura Burger any question right this minute what would it be? I’d ask to be taken through the designing process, from concept to production. I’ve never tried it, and I don’t think I want to… but I find it interesting! I’m just not nearly creative enough for it, but I sure do appreciate those people who are good at it.  It usually starts with theme or colors. From there I 90% of the time work on papers first, takes notes on items I would like to add to the project and while I am doing that I have a basic feeling for who many products will be in the bundle or if it will be something smaller in size. I start working on elements, go to splatters or borders or any other extras. And usually always end with word art if there will some. From there it is making previews, renaming files, adding files to folders, uploading and there you got it. From the time of start to a store is usually 2 to 3 weeks depending on how creative I have been in the past weeks.
