Ponytails Designs' Wandering is an Expression of Journey

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!

Ponytails Designs Speak Up Bundle Plus a Freebie!!

Don't you just hate it when you're scrapping with a kit and there isn't any word art to go with it? Fix that problem by creating some of your own! These templates will help you whip up some perfectly coordinated word art in no time at all. Scrappers can use papers and elements from the kit they're working with. Designers can create some of their own word art to put in their kits. Easy peasy! Speak Up word art templates are available in Circles or Flags or available as a Bundle for your convenience. As always, new releases are 30% for the first week!


Finally, here is a freebie from me using Speak Up - Circles as well as Ponytail's Design's latest kit, Witches Brew.

Have a great weekend and happy scrapping!

Next Designer Contest Round Two!

Round 2 Voting for the Studio's NDC is up!

I love those slow mornings where the sun and the clouds dance a bit. You might read the paper while pounding in your pjs or sip your favorite morning beverage after a very brief sojourn into the backyard to grab some flowers to nestle into an old bottle you found in your cupboard that will give the  table a bit of a happy glow. Just relax. You don't have any plans this morning anyway. 

That's the theme of my mini-kit this round. It's called "Slow Morning". 

Are you ready to vote again? Go -> HERE <- and vote for Jsuarez "Slow Morning" mini,  PLEASE? You also get 4 other votes. 

Then you can go to the gallery to download my mini plus a ton of others! Freebie frenzy, AND they are all gorgeous!!  GALLERY LINK

Also if you want to head over to my Facebook page, I made a coordinating fan freebie as well. 

I feel like I am really challenging myself with this contest! I'm enjoying it, and I LOVE being about to give so many pretty things away and share where there are so many more!

So, again, please vote for me, Jsuarez "Slow Morning" mini kit 
and Happy Scrapping!

ponytails_blog notes from nat
Sometimes we all need a helping hand. Our friend and active forum member, Kim, is facing a very difficult time ahead as she deals with her husband's terminal illness, as well as health issues of her own. She will be left with a young son to raise on her own and unable to work. We designers came together to try to help. We created a template grab bag that's just bursting with awesome pages for you to create!
This grab bag boasts 27 wonderful templates (one is a double-pager, so it's really 28!) Formats include PNG, PSD, TIFF, and PAGE files, all quality checked for you. With a variety of styles, there's really something for everyone here!
Let's give our friend a hand. Kim's going to have some tough times ahead. We can't fix her situation, but maybe we can help her feel a little less alone in it!
