When Life Gives You Lemons – New Release

I hope that everyone had a great DSD weekend. I know that it was full of fun for me. This week I’m here with my latest release – When Life Gives You Lemons.

Life is full of little surprises – some of them sweet, some of them sour. The trick to it is choosing to see the bright side in everything, so when life gives you lemons, make the best of it! This fun collection is perfect for scrapping those moments, but is versatile enough for everyday layouts and lemonade stand layouts. Check out these previews and don’t forget to check for your coupon after the previews!



The kit and add on pieces are all 40% this weekend. Use the coupon code: mls-lifelemons10 to get the already discounted bundle for just $10 now through Monday night!

Smarty Pants

Hey everyone! It’s been quite a busy few weeks here with the lead up to school starting, school actually starting, and dealing with that slight slump that happens about a week later when getting up to go to school is neither new or exciting. I have to say, it’s been pretty interesting with both of the boys heading off to school this year. I haven’t quite gotten used to the quiet yet and I still have that big “yay they’re coming home!” smile in the pick up line. You know the one, right? Anyone taking bets on how long that lasts? Lol!

So, to capture all those great moments this year, I created Smarty Pants. It’s a huge collection filled with fun elements in bright, fun colors to scrap those memories with the same sort of happy feel that those first day smiles brought on. Smarty Pants is on sale for 30% off for one week, so check out these previews and grab them before the sale ends!

And congratulations to Sara Tomlinson who said “The thing I love most about back to school time is shopping for school supplies! ybkids always groan about having to think about school….but, to me, the best things are sharp, unused crayons in a box and a brand new package of markers or pens!!!” Be on the lookout for an email from me to get this collection for free!

I loved all the new friends we made at the campground, all those warm summer days swimming, evenings catching fireflies, roasting mallows and drinking cocoa!”

Congratulations Karen! I’ll be sending you an email to claim your prize in a little while.

Sneak Peek to Win!

Hello all! I meant to have this out earlier (last week in fact!), but “my computer is super slow” turned into my hubby saying “let me tune it up really quickly” which turned into him saying “if it was me, I’d just wipe it and start over.” A corrupted system file and one broken net 4.5 file later and I have a squeaky clean computer, but at least I have an awesome hubby who can take care of that stuff for me, huh?

Anyways, on to the goods, right? If you’ve seen my Journalers Vol. 1 templates in the store you’ve probably noticed that volume 1 looked pretty lonely. No to fear, though, this week’s new release is the second volume in that collection. Perfect for Project Life type projects as well as more traditional scrapbooking.

These will release this Thursday, so leave me a comment here telling me if you do project life type layouts or not and I’ll come back and randomly select a winner to get them for free!

Good luck everyone! Happy scrapping and God bless!

New Collection – Cheer by Manda Lane Scraps

Good chilly morning to you from my little home. I’m telling you, winter is not my favorite, but I *love* Christmas. For us it’s all about faith and family. (If you’re interested in my faith, check this page.) We love to keep things Christ centered, but we also love the fun, family, and of course, gifts. Watching the kids get all excited about opening them up is so much fun. Which is why it may come as a surprise, but I didn’t have any Christmas themed kits in my store. But don’t worry! I’ve fixed that.

I hope you checked out this month’s blog train. (If not, you can find my part here.) I loved the colors so much that I was inspired to make my newest collection – Cheer. Cheer is a fun Christmas collection made with soft colors. Enjoy the whimsy of the fun doodled characters alongside more modern touches of burlap and kraft. This collection is perfect for scrapping those Christmas memories!

So, from my family to yours, I pray for a fun, special, wonderful Christmas season for you all!

Falling with You

Hey everyone! I’m so excited for October. Lots of great things (if you can ignore the allergies / sinuses) come this time of the year – leaves changing colors, fall smells, cooler weather, apple cider, and lots of other things. To celebrate, I joined in on the October Bits N Pieces at Scraps N Pieces. The color palette was just beautiful and so I knew I had to get on board.

My collection is called Falling with You. A fun combination of cute love and beautiful fall. Check out the previews and remember that all Bits N Pieces parts are only $1 each for the first week! Woot!
