Fantastic and fun stuff galore!! LyllahRaven Designs really knows how to throw a Grand Opening Party!

Gentleman’s Quarterly




Who says that digital scrapbooking is just for women? Gentlemen’s Quarterly takes you to days gone by with it’s love of weathered looking things, it’s darker tones of black, maroon, beige and green telling us that this is a man’s job before we ever lay a picture down. Mustaches, beer life byte cards, metal and newspaper flowers are all reminders that this kit is about being part of the boy’s club, Scrapping those pictures of Grandpa, or the ones you took of the guys talking that they didn’t see you take, or father and son moments, all would work with this clever kit!

With All My Heart

With All My Heart expresses those tender moments perfectly with rosy pinks, gentle beiges and velvety browns. Fragile lace bits in many of the flowers, as well as on it’s own as an element balance out the strong metal charms that say “You Are Loved”, and the alpha. A subtle reminder from the artist that love is both something precious to be cherished as well as something vibrant to be celebrated. This kit is easily adaptable not just for romantic memories but also to family treasured moments such as those old photos of your Grandmother that you have in a box in the closet.

CU Paper Textures Vol. 2


Have you ever made your own papers? If you have not, here is your chance to learn! It’s fun! A little like a party game. First you would open one of these fantastic textures. Create a new layer above your texture layer. Fill the new layer with a color. Adjust the blend mode of the color layer until you are happy with the result. You also could try using multiple color layers at different blend modes for a more specific look. Save as a .jpg with a new name and that’s it. Party Prize: You made a paper!

Also don’t forget the super fun SPEED SCRAP! On Saturday! Everyone loves a speed scrap! This one is being held in in the new (yay!) Neatchat room on the GDS Facebook Page as well as in the Speed Scrap Forum at GDS.

This week in the store we have a new ‘Free with Purchase’ item in the store! I have a really amazing friend, Melissa of LissyKay Designs, who makes fantastic templates. When I told her I was preparing to release a new kit, she asked if I would like a template to match it. I couldn’t pass up that opportunity! Have you seen her template designs? If you haven’t, you can check them out HERE. If you are familiar with the GingerScraps forum, I am sure you have been seeing layouts done with her templates for a few months now. They always stand out from the crowd. In fact, 3 layouts made with her templates were nominated for “Layout of the week” at GingerScraps just THIS WEEK!


From now until January 21st, 2014 when you add the “You are my Sunshine – Template” into your cart and purchase it with the “You are my Sunshine – Bundle” and the template will be free!


Don’t forget that from January 1st, 2014 until 11:59pm January 31st, 2014 every purchase in the store enters your name into a drawing for a free $5 gift card. The winner will be drawn on February 1st during our Grand Opening celebration and announced here on the blog, as well as the LyllahRaven Designs Facebook. For complete rules and details, please read the note at the top of the Facebook page.

One last note: LyllahRaven Designs CT call will be open until January 15th. We would love to add you to our amazing team of ladies!

I’m horrible at the CT thing but April and Melissa (featured above) both put up with me. Isn’t it a great mark of their character to humor me so 🙂

Happy New Year! Can you believe how fast this year has gone by? I know it seems cliché to say it, but the older I get, the quicker the years are passing!
