Hi! I hope everyone has had a great week. Here we are with just one more week left in January and we have 2 great new releases for you. Check them out…
First, Tattered Princess Designs has this new release perfect for scrapping any of those extra holiday memories or even just a warm cozy night curled up on the couch with a nice cup of hot cocoa.
Secondly, we have Lisa Rosa with this beautiful snowy kit. The penguins in this one are just so cute and like all of Lisa’s kits the flowers are beautifully detailed. You will love everything about this one, grab it today!

The January 2015 Lovely Colors Sale kicked off on January 15th and is going through January 20th with all packs being on sale for $1! Our designers put together some amazing products with this month’s color swatch!
Mix and match to create your own mgea collection! Then add your layout to our Lovely Colors Challenge for January! Here are some beautiful layouts that I’ve seen in the gallery already.
I can’t wait to see what you come up with! You’re sure to have one lovely layout using any of these great packs!
Lovely Colors are here!! We’ve waited all month for these delicious colors to come together into beautiful kits by our designers. You will want some of these pieces if not all of them for sure. They are perfect for scrapping those wintery memories or gearing up for Valentine’s Day. Before I show you all the pieces let’s take a look at some of the beautiful layouts our CT have done with the Lovely Colors this month.
And here are those beautiful Lovely Colors you are all waiting on:
At With Love Studio we have all sorts of monthly challenges in our forum to help you hone your skills, inspire your next layout, and just to have fun with each other. Participating in the challenges gives you a chance to stretch your abilities, try knew techniques, and get involved in our community. Not to mention the fact that completing the challenges and meeting the guidelines earns you points towards a gift certificate that you can use in the WLS store!
Our main goal is to help you tell your story. You know, the one behind the picture. I do like to do layouts for artistic and therapeutic reasons. I call it scrap therapy and it keeps me grounded. However, I also set goals to tell the stories about the photos I’ve taken or the things that go through my head that someday I want my family to know if I’m not there to tell them in person. I hope you do too.
The monthly challenges at With Love Studio are a great place to try new techniques, scrap in ways you may not have thought about, and about subjects that may have not crossed your mind. Do one or do them all! How many and what kind is totally up to you. Just have fun on the journey.
I want to share a few of this month’s challenges with you. I hope you see something that you would like to try and come join in the fun.
Lisa Rosa is our host this month. She created this beautiful mini-kit for this challenge and all you have to do is use all the pieces somewhere on the layout. You can use the items as many times as you want but you must use all of the pieces somewhere. Pick up the mini in the forum thread and show us what you can do with it!
Here are a few layouts that have already been shared in this challenge this month. I love seeing all the different variations the layouts take with the same kit!
Your host for this challenge is Kaytea. In this challenge you can pick up this awesome template to guide your layout. That’s it! Flip it, move or remove pieces, rotate it, or use it just like it is.
Take a look at how these scrappers made their layouts unique! The base of the template is there but each one has it’s own twist that brings the template to life.
This is another one of my personal favorites. This month’s challenge is hosted by Chunlin and she has some words to help spark your creativity. You don’t have to use the word on your layout but your layout needs to represent the word in some way. I think the words Chunlin picked for this month will be super easy to create a layout around and I hope to see more layouts in that thread soon!
These are just three of the many challenges you will find in our forum. I hope to see you join in the fun soon! Our forum is full of friendly scrappers who would love to get to know you and be a part of your journey.
I made a Word Art freebie for our fans that you can use for the Lovely Words Challenge or the XOXO Collab Challenge (or any other layout that it will fit!). I used the add on pack for the January 2015 XOXO Collab that you can pick up on the WLS Facebook Page. Enjoy!!
Have a fantastic scrapping week!
Friday is here…HOORAY!! Like many of you, our lives got back to normal this week going back to work and school and back to all after school activities and WOW am I very very tried. I hope this weekend I can just sit back and relax and maybe even manage to scrap a few pages. This weekend is a great weekend to do that too. We have a NEW designer to add to our family here at WLS, but many of our members are quiet familiar with her friendly face around here. We’re pleased to announce the Grand Opening of her shop Designs by Romajo and her shop is on sale all through January for 50% off!

Want to try out her templates? This is the perfect time to do just that! Bren has her store on sale at 50% off all month long. Keep reading to find out how to snag a couple as freebies as well!
Before we see her featured product up close and in action, let’s get to know Bren a little bit better!
Tell us a little about yourself. Where are you from, where do you live, do you have another career? Any other exciting info or dark secrets you’d like to share?
I was born and raised in Arizona. I am happily married to my best friend Ian. We have an amazing but rotten five year old son named Matthew. I am a stay-at-home mom and love it! No dark secrets here, I am an open book…lol
What is your background in designing? How did you start?
I have been designing templates since September of this year so fairly new. I have been designing layouts for over five years and always loved templates, so I figured why not join in and design my own.
What is your newest (or featured) kit – tell us about it:
Be Yourself is a set of templates that will let you show off the real you and tell the world a little bit about yourself.
What is your favorite thing to do besides scrapbooking or designing?
I love to spend time with my family. I also love to swim and read.
Tell us what your perfect birthday would be like!
A day of pampering, pedi, a massage and then dinner with my two favorite guys.
Got any hints for us on what we’ll see from you in the future?
Looking forward to doing some new and unique things that will definitely keep you interested!
If you hang out in our forum, you’ve probably met Bren. She’s one of the sweetest people around and always lifts up those around her!
Here is a look at Bren’s Featured Product: Be Yourself! On sale for $1.50!!
