    August 30, 2014 by Boo

     labor-day-2013

    Hey Folks,

    Can you believe I totally forgot to post our Fav Fonts yesterday? Is that a sign of getting old or just excitement about this weekends BIG surprise??? Don’t worry though,

    We’ll post them in Tomorrows Wrap It Sunday for you so you won’t have to miss out on them. Meanwhile, I have a BIG surprise for you this Labor Day Weekend. Can you guess what it is yet??  Oh, I guess that BIG Ad below kinda gives it away huh? LOL

    We have been inundated with requests to reactivate our BMS sales for those of you who missed them due to your vacations. Normally we wouldn’t be able to do this but our lovely Studio Mom, Toiny must be feeling the Labor Day Lurve because she’s only gone and let us reactivate ALL the BMS stores for this weekend ONLY. WoHoooooooT

    Go Grab yourselves a large slice of Booland – Just click the image to go to the Sale

    Happy Long Weekend!

    The timing couldn’t be better.  I still need to decompress from my vacation… and our house has a couple Honey Do chores for us as well.  I think, maybe, the weather is cooperating and we’ll get to grill too.  I’m ready!

    Have I mentioned “grillfackeln“? This is bacon-on-a-stick. But so much better than bacon-on-a-stick. We barbeque this every summer, many times every summer, until grill season is official over & there are no more grillfackeln in the stores.  It is almost the end of grillfackeln season.  I think I’m due for a double helping.

    The store is counting down to Monday.  Starting today, Friday, both Personal Use and Commercial Use are on sale!  We are moving up! It’s 30% Off storewide today.  But check back as savings continue to go up! Monday will be our biggest day, but there are deals to be had every day especially our Daily Deals!

    What are your plans this weekend?  Do you have a Honey Do of your own?  BBQ?  Travel plans? Share in the comments!

    Monday is not only Labor Day, and our BIG Sale Day, it is also the kick-off for ourBirthday Bash 2014! Look for crowd favorites the Next Designer Contest, Layout Artist Contest, Digi Detective & more to find their way to our forum once more.

  3. WOW Wednesday and a Goodie

    August 27, 2014 by Boo

    wow3


    45abd842b92e9ae958baa9213b23abd3

    There is no doubt about it. I must be one of the worlds greatest procrastinators always leaving til tomorrow what could be done today. Much of this is born out of a fear of failure that I’m sure some of you will understand. Being the eldest of my siblings it was always my responsibility to ensure their safety when out playing and I found this stressful at the best of times, not least because my sisters were all crazy tear-aways with no fear at all LOL.

    As I’ve got older that stress and fear spilled over into every day life preventing me from doing many things I dreamed of and I did indeed find myself ‘waiting’ for others to bring the flowers to me as a result of that fear.

    Now I’m 50+ with grand children and my own business I’ve come to realise that fear can’t be allowed to stop you from trying and failure is only failure if you don’t give it a go.

    I think this quote is perfect for reminding us to make our own joy in life rather then wait on others to bring it to us. Things may not go as planned but I’ve often found they’ve turned out the better for it.

    I hope this quote inspires you. Feel free to use the quote in your own layouts and be sure to share your creations with us. We love to see what you’ve made.

  4. Tip Tuesday – Hybrid Rose

    August 26, 2014 by Boo

    tip3


    Hey Folks,

    It’s Tip Tuesday and since this weeks gorgeous new collection is all Roses (and some lace lol) I thought it would be cool to share a tutorial for making a sweet little paper rose.

    Sometimes it’s nice to print off our digital layouts and occasionally, I find, it’s nice to add a little hybrid embellishment just to add some extra umphhhhh. These crepe paper roses are perfect for that.

    Have fun creating and don’t forget to share your handywork with us. We LOVE to see your creations.

    How to make a Crepe Paper Rose

    See this tutorial on my Boo’s Hybrid Pinterest Board

  5. Made It Monday – Blossoms Inspirations

    August 25, 2014 by Boo

    Hi Folks,

    There’s something very beautiful about roses don’t you agree? My Grandfather adored his roses and grew huge big Tea Roses in his garden. I still remember the scent waft over me on a lazy summer afternoon when walking through the garden. I immediately felt relaxed and at peace with the world in that lovely rose filled place.

    Creating Roses and Old Lace was as much a tribute to both my Grandparents as it was simply my own love of this gorgeous flower and I’m thrilled now to share with you our Blossoms fabulous take on this new collection.

    Hey all,

    How are you all doing this weekend? Are you busy getting ready for the new school term? Are you still enjoying some vacation time or perhaps you are counting the hours to the latest New Collection from yours truly? Whatever it is I hope it’s filling your day with joy and sunshine and happy moments to help you make those precious memories.

    Elly and I, fresh back from our summer vacation, are off to Southport for the weekend to enjoy some family time and I can’t wait to catch up with everyone. With any luck, it will be a great opportunity to add some new photos to my stash for future layouts. Here’s hoping I have some willing models LOL.

  8. What the Font Friday, Retirement Sale and Empty Nest Fears

    August 22, 2014 by Boo

    elly-homeAll is well with the world. My baby girl is home.

    Well, I don’t mind telling you folks, I missed the heck out of Elly these last almost 6 weeks. It has felt like forever since I last saw her, heard her laugh, talk, sing. It’s made me think about how I’ll manage once she’s off to Uni (fingers crossed lol). As I’ve got older I’ve come to realise I’m one of those Mums who misses their little ones, KWIM? I don’t get to see my Grand babies very often so there is a big hole there. I need to find a way to fill the gap. Have you gone through this sort of thing and if so, what did you do to fill that empty space?

  10. I’m back and OSB sale Extended

    Hey all,

    It’s great to be back even if it is on and off this week as I get re-settled and back into work mode. I bet ya’ll missed me didn’t ya? Go on, admit it, life is just too quiet without your old pal Boo in da house right? LOL.

    Today I am busy doing all those horrible after-vacation jobs like cleaning a dusty house, un-packing and washing mountains of clothes (I’m sure we didn’t take that much with us) and also trying to sort out all my travel arrangements and tickets to go get Elly tomorrow from the airport. Yay. my little (not so little anymore) girl is home from her long haul trip to her Grandparents in Portugal and I can’t wait to see her.

    Ok, so I know maybe 5 minutes after that welcome home hug there will be the usual teenage strops and sulks as she comes down from her (Grandma lets me eat what I want) sugar high and faces the harsh reality of Fruit instead of Sweets hehe but….. I’ll take it all just to have her back home where I can see her pretty face and hear her lovely laughter. The house is waaaaayyyyyyyy too quiet without her.


    Cool iPhone Tips that will BLOW your mind

    Did YOU know these?

    Yes, I know its Wordless Wednesday and Not Tip Tuesday but I’m all over the place trying to get back into work mode and besides, I really love these tips so I’m guessing you guys will forgive me while I settle back in?? :)

    Whats on in BooLand this week?

    Well, I’m glad you asked me that folks and if you’ll give me a minute or three days I might have an answer hahaha. No really, I do know, sorta…..

    Our fearless leader over at the Studio, Toiny, is taking her summer vacation and guess what? She’s only gone and forgotten to turn off my awesome BMS OSB sale so YOU get to enjoy an extended sale period while she’s away. Ssshhhhhhh, don’t say it out loud and if we’re really lucky, no one will notice. ;)
