Wandering by Ponytails Designs and a Freebie!

Sometimes you need a change of scenery to gain a new perspective on a situation. Or sometimes you just need a change of mind or heart. We all have our moments of searching or yearning for something new, better, or different. "Wandering" helps you express some of those thoughts and feelings in a fun and original way. Think of it like a journey of self-discovery! Or maybe you don't need to dig deep and you just want to create a page about a hiking trip or nature trail... Wandering works just fine for that too! With fun themed elements, along with wordy bits that help express your thoughts, you'll have a variety of ways to scrap your pages. You're only limited by your imagination! Wandering is 30% off this week!

Witches Brew by Ponytails Designs!

Witches brew... a new release from Ponytails Designs

“When witches go riding,
And black cats are seen,
The moon laughs and whispers,
‘Tis near Halloween.”
- Author Unknown
Are your little witches ready to brew up some fun this Halloween? Decorate your pages with these bright colors, super cute witches and all their friends! Something so cute can’t be wicked… or can it?
I happened to come across this funny little cartoon as I was looking for the little poem above.  It cracked me up, so I thought I’d share it here with you.  I have a friend who calls herself a Witch, albeit somewhat jokingly, and actively practices Wicca.  She’s one of the nicest people I know… a real Earth Mother, who grows her own veggies and tries to live very naturally.
Now, on to the goodies!  For the GS Buffet this month, the colors just screamed Halloween to me, and since it’s that time of year I thought I’d create some fun little witches and critters to adorn your pages.  So here’s my own little Witch’s Brew for you… and don’t forget that they’re all 50% off the first week!
The bundle will be available later on, but for this first week it’s a way better deal to grab the individual parts are 50% off.

And now a couple of freebies for you.  The first you can grab on PONYTAILS DESIGNS FACEBOOK page…
It’s a set of date stick blanks that match Witch’s Brew.  (There’s a dated one in the element pack.)
And next I have this fun little bonus journal card for you right here!
Enjoy, and have a “wickedly” wonderful week!

Bits and Pieces from Wendy Tunison Desgns

Wendy Tunison Designs has cooked up a whole batch of goodies for you for the BNP sale at SNP this week!  For the first 7 days of October, you can pick up each of these pieces for just $1.00 each! 
Wendy has always been a HUGE fan of creating her own planners and customizing other planners to her needs.  She's created a fun little Artsy Planner kit for you that includes templates in 12x12, 8.5x11 and 5.5x8.5 so you can easily print your planners or simply keep them on your computer for easy reference and documenting.  She's created the templates in gray scale so you can easily clip any paper to the pieces and play with the blend mode to truly customize your planner to your tastes and style!  Wendy also included some fun pieces to enhance your planner in this pack that I'm sure you'll love and find that you can include in your scrapping as well!
Wendy has also created a couple of fun packs of Calendar Pebbles that will be great for customizing your calendar or planner or even placing on your layouts!  These fun pieces can be used as is or you can layer a color overlay on them to create a fun custom colored piece!
In addition to those fun pebbles, Wendy created some date stamps to add to your layouts and planner that she thought would be fun and versatile enough to fit most any occasion or need.  This first set would be so much fun to use directly on a photo or on a journal card!  There are so many possibilities.  Simply clip any paper to them or use your favorite styles to fancy them up!
The second set is a little more layerable.  Simply clip your desired paper to each of the pieces or add a style and layer these onto your layout or into your planner!  So super easy and so customizable!
Wendy's also created some fun washi tape because we all know how much fun that is to add to our projects! 
What's even more fun that washi tape?  Washi tape with words on it or attached to it!  These fun strips of talking tape will make it so much fun to add a title or thought to your layout!
Of course, if stitches are more your style than tape for fastening things down and adding a little interest, you'll want to pick up this fabulous stitchery set!  Wendy created each of these stitches herself and you'll not find them anywhere else.  Full of fun autumn themed pieces and some versatile words and shapes as well, this set is so much fun to use!   She's included some buttons and scatters as well because they simply make her happy!
Wendy has created some thought provoking journal card sets as well this month that would be so much fun to add to most any page or if you're really brave, print them out and add them to your planners!
While she was on the subject of page prompts, she thought she'd create some fun little word tabs too.  Well, she just couldn't stop and ended up with a HUGE assortment of fun words to add to your layouts.  Sized at 3 inches, these would work wonderfully as a cute title piece or you could size them down a bit and spell out some fun words with them!  Wendy tried to sort them out a little by category in case you're looking for something specific.
D Is For Dates is just that...all about the dates you might need to document or celebrate in your life!  Included are the months of the year, days of the week, numbers, and several other fun words to use when documenting specific days!
E is for Exploration is for those of you that are looking to do a little self exploration.  Perfect for conquering all of those tough subjects and an art journaler's dream set, you'll find this one will make you dig a little deeper!
H is for How is chock full of descriptive words.  These would be all of those silly adjectives we all love to use!  Use them as stand alone titles or group them together for some silly fun!
I don't know about you but my kids and I definitely can have some mood swings!  M is for Moody covers a wide range of moods from happy to wild and everything in between from mad to delightful!
Looking for something to describe the people in your life?  P Is For People has all the words you'll need to describe everyone from your mother to your tween!
R Is For Random is just that...a whole lot of random words that could fit into perfectly any project you're working on!
Do you ever need a title or word bit that covers the way you're feeling?  S Is For State Of Mind is the perfect choice for you!
W Is For Whatever is full of all the things Wendy wanted to add that didn't quite fit into any of the other categories.  It's a modge podge of fun words that cover a myriad of things!  If you can't find it anywhere else, it's probably right here in this set!
Of course, you may want to have some papers to play with all of this!  Wendy has created two fabulous paper packs that are mostly black and white with just a hint of yellow and grey here and there.  These sets are versatile enough to work with most anything else and so much fun for adding just that bold pop of pattern to your project!
And finally, Wendy has created an awesome ellie pack full of clusterable pieces!  You know how much she loves to cluster and this pack has all of those pieces that make clustering so much fun!  There are plenty of flowers, leaves, and swirly things! 
Now that you've seen all of the fun things Wendy's created, wouldn't you love to see the gorgeous and clever creations our creative team has made?

Have a fabulous day!
