I have had so many emails, facebook messages and pm's that I thought I'd better post a note on my blog real quick to let everyone know what happened to my store at ScrapOrchard.
As you might know, I have taken a pretty long break from designing due to having to take care of my parents who both had major surgery this year just a few months apart. I also homeschool my two kids, so you can imagine, my life gets pretty hectic at times.
I made the very hard decision recently to step down as a designer from ScrapOrchard because I could not keep up with the team and site requirements and still find time to design and do all the other things I love to do. It's a great store and I so appreciate all of the staff there for making me feel so welcome for the time I was there.
I am now in the process of moving all of my kits and templates into my own personal store that I have had for many years at www.kaymillerdesigns.com . It's going to take me a while with my super busy life, but I hope to have them all moved over in the next couple of months. In the mean time, I have a brand new kit that I finished up in June, but have never had the chance to release, so I'm going to be releasing it next week before summer is completely over! haha! If you're like me, you are ready for fall and some cooler temps, but hopefully there are still plenty of you out there that have summer photos still to scrap or live in the Southern Hemisphere :)
Designing is not a priority in my life. I do have interests other than designing that I enjoy. I am on 10 creative teams which I LOVE! Scrapping is always my first priority and I love promoting the fabulous designers that I creative team for. I also love to do rubber stamping and cardmaking and I work with my polymer clay from time to time making Christmas ornaments and little figures. I would really love to use my blog to showcase some of the other things I do rather than just use it for promoting my digital scrapbooking products. I want to show some of the cards I make, my clay things and sometimes my scrapbook pages also. I have been torn as how to use my blog, so basically it has not been used! hahaha! I felt I should be using it for my business, but that's not really what my heart was into. I just want to share whatever it is I happen to be into at the time.
That said, here goes!! I'm going to start doing that today with this post :) And hopefully keep up with it on a little more regular basis.
First off I will show you a sneak peek of my new kit that is coming out next Tuesday :) Not many designers use purple, which is really a travesty in my opinion, as it's my favorite color, so this one's for me and all the other purple fans out there :)
Okay now on to some of the cards I have been making. I LOVE this time of year, well not August really, but fall on into Christmas time. This is my very favorite time of year to make cards and paper crafts. All of the new winter and Christmas stamps are out and I am going crazy! I just ordered new stamps from Stampin' Up!, Papertrey Ink and Verve. Got them this week and I'm in love! I run to my craftroom every little second I get! haha! Which is not a lot of little seconds by the way :)
Anyway I'm loving all of the new stamps sets with matching dies!! So fun! Here are some cards I made this week with a stamp set from Stampin' Up! call Perfectly Perserved.
Anyway, thank you so much for taking the time to read a little about me and what's been going on in my life. I hope you'll stop by from time to time to visit!
