Tuesday Solo...

Happy Tuesday!  Whoop whoop!

It's Tuesday solo time!  

This one came together super fast!  I have many other Tuesday Solos ready, but over the Easter weekend I had my family over, and my sister Amy MADE me sit and draw up a tattoo for her.  This is what I came up with and it is in process of being tattooed on her this week! What an honor to have my art on someone's body permanently, and extra special
 when it's my own family member.

You get both versions, one with smaller pupil and iris and one with larger pupils and iris.  We messed around with the eyes a few time and she thought the smaller eyes looked more "WICKED" lol I like big I thought heck, let's just do both!

Check out the two awesome makes from my DT gals...

You can pick her up here: Tuesday Solos

Happy Saturday!  Day TWO of a new release and a few OUT of the Vault digis back again for a limited time!

Let's start with our new release of these beautiful Geisha Girls.

I don't know why, don't know how I managed, but I got into drawing Geisha's lately.  So here they are four fun Geishas in both Digi and Rubber BUT there is a catch.  This set will be exclusives!  Only a certain amount will be sold in both Digi and Rubber.  Once sold out they will be put into the vault where they may or may not come back.  More than likely not as they are exclusive. So don't miss out and grab yours today!

Rubber on sale good through Sunday March 15th @ 9:59 PM PST
Now you must, must check out the beautiful creations our DT gals have done with these beauties! Lots of pretties to see!

Next up we have a few out of the Vault digis!  These are oldies but goodies wanting to be revived!  The first set is drawn by Betty Roberts owner and artist of SBS!

Steampunk DT Gals!

These beauties first released January of 2014, therefore it is not a new release, but again an oldie but goodie set. They were retired the same year and not part of any previous deals or purchases such as yearly subscriptions (2015 year subscription was for anything NEW in 2015).

Now the next set!  This was one of my ABSOLUTE favorites when they first released back in 2011.  Again an oldie but goodie set. They were retired the same year and not part of any previous deals or purchases such as yearly subscriptions (2015 year subscription was for anything NEW in 2015). 

Artist of these beauties is Rachel Sharp, she's my teens artist.  I am so lucky to have her with SBS.  Amazing artist, kind, professional and just plain awesome!!

So that is two awesome collections and here's a sweet deal for you!

Both sets together would run you $48, BUT if you grab BOTH sets as a bundle, they are specially priced at $15 for BOTH!  Grab yours here: Steampunk Bundle
Sale price is good through Sunday March 15th @ 9:59 PM PST
All Out of the Vault digis will be re-retired on March 31st, @ 6:00 PM PST

Want an even BIGGER deal?  Each month I will be bringing out retired digis for the Out of the Vault section!  I will bring out two lines every month from now until December.  Sign up for the rest of the year and get all previously released and out of the vault for a limited time digis for $65.00!  The regular price of these digis would be $180 or more as at times there will be more than just 6 digis in the retired sets!!  So, this means that each month when a retired digi set that has been previously released is brought back into the store for the second time and again for a limited time, you will receive them in your inbox automatically within 24 hours!

Grab yours today!! Right here: Out of the Vault 2015

Now onto our next Fun happening!  

I am starting a NEW Stamp of the Month club!  
This club is totally awesome because each month I will choose two rubber stamps to create four awesome projects with!  You will receive complete instructions on how to put the projects I created together and at least a new fun technique will be showcased with the stamp.  

This month I am kicking it off with this cutie!!

This cutie contains 5 stamps!  You get the Franken Rio Image, the frame, the sentiment, a large bat, and a cluster of bats for making backgrounds!

April 1st will be the launch of the 4 awesome projects I will be showcasing along with a fun technique!  You will be contacted and instructions as well as video links will be emailed to you on April 1st.
