A break from the Holiday Madness

Hi everyone.  Oh to have a break from all this Holiday Madness.  I seem to have no time to even breathe!  Closing out the end of the year at my job, Christmas shopping, candy making for gifts, card to be made still, and all I want to do is sit down and stop!  But alas, there is no time!  Im sneaking off of my duties just to post this up....But I had a thought!  I was looking at my blog this am and said, Self, It is so brown!!!!!!!  But this is the thing....Im not great for colors, Ill tell you that right now.  I just got my first ever piece of pink clothing....well pink and gray, a track suit to wear to my workout class!  Anywho,  I NEED HELP!  I want to update  my blog wear to be pretty and artsy, but if it is not black drawing lines, well, I will fail miserably!  Sooooo,  if you all see any nice pretty artsy blogs, hey send me a link so I can look at them and try to get a major idea on a redo.......and I figured that I would throw in a coupon to the person who inspires me the most!  Lets say $15.00.  So, please help a sister get updated in a more girly fashion.....and yes, I am working on a little gift for you all, but Im not sure when I will get it posted.  Im thinking probably late Friday evening.....once the shopping, candy, cards, and a nap is over!  Just leave me a comment with a little linky to what you think would look nice, and me and the Man will have a peek.(he is beginning to embrace technology and likes to look over me shoulder when I do these type of things!)  Im fashion challenged so you lovely ladies have your work cut out for you!

I really appreciate all of you!
Have a Merry Merry Christmas and a joyous and prosperous New Year!

And Stef has already been busy with a few images!

How pretty using Snowflake 3 Digi Stamp!  I love this card with it's cool, blingy colors!

And with the Newest Stamp, Happy New Year 1


I am really diggin this card as well, the champagne color is gorgeous and that backer paper is right on target for the type of card Stef made!  (I think she is keeping this one in her stash!)

You can visit with Stef Here at her blog.

Now Let's Meet...

Susan


I am 51, an MRI Technologist by profession, but am now disabled. I have been an artist in many forms since childhood. I've been stamping on and off since I was about 30. It became serious after going to a STAMPIN' UP workshop in 2002. I loved it so much I signed up to be a demo, and I was until 2009. I still enjoy their stamps, and those of other companies as well. I use digital stamps too, but to be honest my heart is with rubber (especially unmounted). I have a VAST collection of digital stamps, and in fact have to move them to flash drives to free up room on my computer. I am married and have 3 grown children. They are "bouncers" in that they have moved out and back a few times. LOL! Mostly my son, he is back with us now. I am an animal lover and at the moment have 1 cat of my own, and our grand-cat and grand-dog (we've told our son the dog stays when he moves out again...my husband is quite attached...which is truly a first. I am attached too). My disabilities are mostly physical ones that started out as injuries. But since the last injury (on-the-job) got infected with MRSA and I lost bones etc. (lost the ability to work in my field and elsewhere really). I am dealing with Post-traumatic depression and anxiety. Art and art or craft work, is therapy for me, in many ways.My life isn't great, but it is what it is. My youngest daughter stamps some and scrapbooks also with me.

I was on a design team for a Scrapbook store here in NJ, that is now closed, called The Happy Scrapper. It is the only design team I have ever been on. However I have won several L/O contests in Scrap booking. Recently my work is becoming noticed in challenges on the Internet, and I actually won one with that awesome "Happy Fall" image card (Image by Robyn, The blog I won on- stamping for the weekend)!! It is nice to have a few "I won" badges and "I made top 3" badges on my blog now.

I would like to add that I entered the most challenges EVER in the month of October and committed to, and followed through on THE largest challenge in the arts in my life of; "The 31 Days of Halloween" (sponsored by SnS) and created something stamped (or digi stamp) EVERY day for Halloween During the month of October. I am so glad to stop being fearful of rejection and put my work out there!
I am honored to be a member of the DT for the "I Did It Creations" challenge blog (Robyn's Fetish Digi Stamps). Now, I am honored and flattered to be a product Designer for Floppy Latte Designs. I TRULY LOVE Jess's images, she is a woman of great talent!
Please visit Susan at her blog...

Well Folks, that is about it for today.  Remember that Happy New Year 1 is only free today at Floppy Latte's Digital Designs Store, and once it has gone to full price, the freebie is over.  Im doing this on a short run so be quick to grab it!

I have a few others on the ole digital drawing pad so stay tuned, another gift may drop down the chimney before Christmas!

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas, and a wonderous Holiday Season!

Catch you on the flip,

Manic Monday and a Special Presentation!

Hello Everybody!  Happy Manic Monday to you all!  This week your Manic Monday Freebie is your Freebie of Choice!  I am working on two New Year Images, but am just not happy with them yet, and I don't want to give you anything less than my best so I thought it would be nice if I let you pick your freebie this week!  Just use coupon code MMCHOICE (which has a value of $3.00) when you check out, and you can get your stamp of choice. 

***Note:  Manic Monday will restart again on January 2nd.  Im getting busier and busier with all of the holiday preparations and dont want to rush any of my drawings.  I do appreciate your patience during the holiday season!***  But, make sure you are a follower, because I may have a surprise or two that may crop up during the next two weeks!***


 The Buy 3 Get 1 Free is "Partridge and Pears".  With Christmas still a few weeks away, some of you may still need to create those cards and gifts and this is a great stamp with a stylized feel for those special products.  Remember, use the BOGO coupon code at check out and the price of Partridge and Pears will be deducted from your order total as long as your amount of purchase stays $7.00 and above.  Just another way I can try to make it economical to shop at Floppy Latte's Digital Designs.

Partridge and Pears


One Stitch At A Time Challenge Blog:

Marjo the Magnificent used my Fairy Moon Image in this week's Challenge #92 entitled    "Use A Digi" (and we all have digis!) to make a luminary!  I have posted both the pictures here for you to see!  This is simply fantastic!  So very well done Marjo, and Thank You as always, for doing a super job with my digis!


Lights Off!


Lights On! 
You can visit with Marjo the Magnificent and see all of her fabby creations at KonaKrafter.



Now, I did mention a special presentation?


....oh yes I did.  Last week, I sponsored the I Did It Creations Challenge Blog.  Their theme was "Flowers" and they chose to use some of my Floral Frames.  Now most of these creations are by First Time DT's and boy, did they knock my socks off!  After each picture, I will be providing a link to their blogs so that you can bask in their talent as I have!

All of the following images can be purchased at  at Floppy Latte's Digital Designs AND

Christine Used Poinsettia Frame
I love the background paper Christine used and that bow is gorgeous!  Her coloring is exquisite as well!  Well Done Christine, and Thank you!



Cindy Used Floral Frame 6
This just screams summertime!  The patterned paper and the embossing of the circles really set the image, which is magnificently colored, right off. And the twine is a superb touch!  Well Done Cindy, and Thank You!



Hannelie Used Floral Frame 4
This is simply lovely and elegant.  Those corner beads, though small, make a huge impact on the entire card and the fabric bow is an extra special touch!  The lovely coloring keeps the image simple and clean yet adds elegance!  Well Done Hannelie and Thank You!



Jules Used Floral Frame 4
The addition of the 3d elements to this card make it extra special!  I love the hues of purple in her coloring!  And those precious Butterflies make the image complete!  What a lovely card!  Well Done Jules and Thank You!



Larence Used Funky Flower
Now this image speaks for itself!  Fun and Funky!  The coloring really leaps off the page and brings in the focus to the detail in the image!  Love the color choices and the corner embellies!  Well Done Laurence and Thank You!



Lilia Used Floral Frame 6
This is a statement of elegance!  The coloring and shading are phenomenal!  The ribbon and the corner embellishment really make this card extra special, and the dotted paper with the contrasting gingham print gives it so much interest!  Love Love it!  Well Done Lilia and Thank You!  



Michelle Used Floral Frame 6
This precious picture is just that, precious!  The wonderful blue colors set this precious child off so well!  Very simply and artfully executed!  Well Done Michelle and Thank You.



Sue Used Tulips
One of my most favorite digi stamps!  The way they are "popping" right out of this card is wonderful!  The coloring and shading are fantastic!  I do so love the side embellishments and that purple frame picks the color up from the tulips so nicely!  Well Done Sue, and Thank You!



Susan Used Poinsettia Frame
I love the vintage look of this card.  Her coloring makes the digi look lifelike and the addition of the fabric flower is a great plus!  The bow is a super addition as well, bringing in a little bling!  Well Done Susan and Thank You!



Susan Used Tulips
Here again is the Tulips Digi, but done in a very sweet, springlike tone!  So pretty and feminine is this card!  The coloring and shading Susan has done is extraordinary!  So subtle and lifelike.  The little bees are just too cute as well, and an appearance by a pretty pink butterfly add an extra special touch to this card!  Well Done Susan and Thank You!



Ladies, My hat's off to you all!  You all did such a fantastic job with my digis!  I can't wait to see what you do with my next sponsorship!

Great Tip Video

Hello everybody!   As I was sitting quietly in the living room awaiting Mr Breakfast to wake up and get to cooking, I wanted to research some print and cut tips for my Cricut since I am in the process of making a few christmas gifts that need cut outs and came upon this GREAT TIP.  I have been frustrated in the past at the print and cut issues with my Cricut.  But this has solved all my problems.  Now I wont go into all the steps to creating my graphics, but instead will link you to this fantastic blog that I found and right to the direct page that has the info on it.

http://cleversomeday.wordpress.com/2009/09/22/hinge-technique-for-cutting-printouts/  From Clever Someday Blog!  I now can cut my items out and I wont have to waste paper!!!!!!!!  If you are familiar with your cutting machine and program that goes with it (or those 2 third party programs, MTC and SCAL) which I highly recommend), this is the tutorial for you!

Ok, Mr. Breakfast has offically titled our "resturant" this morning the "Full Grille Cafe" because he has all the breakfast on the nice big griddle cooking away!  Saves Ms. Dishwasher a lot of work!

Ok, off to breakfast then SHOPPING!

Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday!  See You Tomorrow for Manic Monday!

MANIC MONDAY, and a NEW Feature!



Good MANIC MONDAY TO YOU ALL!

This is the best part of my day!  I get to share with you all this Monday's Great Freebie!


I created this piece of word art for a shadow box picture frame set that I am working on for a Christmas Gift.  It would be perfect for wall art, card fronts....and I can think of so many more things!  All you have to do is go to Floppy Latte's Digital Designs and Check out the Specials on the Left hand side of the page and you can get this inspirational piece of word art FREE, no coupon required!


Now, last week Edwina of Edwina's Creations, sent me a lovely picture of the card she created with last week's Manic Monday Freebie!  Take a gander!


How Pretty Edwina, Im lovin that gold bow!  If you all get a chance, stop on over at Edwina's Blog and check out her creations.


NEW FEATURE
Did I mention a new feature???  I sure did!  I have been industrious here on my day off and decided it was time to reward my faithful customers, so in addition to my Customer Rewards Program, I have a new feature, that will change weekly.  It is a Buy 3 Get One Free! (I love Free!)  This week the stamp up for the special is Poinsettia Frame:

Now,how this works is:
 1.  You do a bit of shopping (you must have 3 digi stamps in your cart and the total must equal or exceed $7.00).
 2.  Add Poinsettia Frame to your cart. 
3.  Proceed to checkout when you are finished shopping. ***Note:  you will see the retail price of Poinsettia Frame in your cart UNTIL you enter the Coupon Code BOGO in the redemption area during checkout.
4.  Once you click through to the next page, you should see the price of Poinsettia Frame deducted from your total. (I have double checked this and it has worked both times.  You MUST TYPE in BOGO, you can't copy and paste as it does not always work that way).
5.  Continue to check out and viola, you get Poinsettia Frame FREE!  (Again, I just love FREE!)

Now, the offering will change each week, but the coupon code will stay the same and you will be able to reuse it only if you purchase at least 3 digi stamp products AND your cart total is equal to or more than $7.00.

I am giving this a test run to you all out there and if it is something that you really  like, I will continue it.

NEW PRODUCT ALERT!

Ohhhhh I can feel the snow coming so I decided it was time to put together a few snowflake digital die cut files for you folks out there that have cutting machines and the software!  This week I have relased a set of three snowflake files (as well as each file individually).


Brrrrr! I can just feel the cold from these beauties.  Just a heads up, the digital stamp files will be released on the 9th of December!  These digital die cut files can be cut several times and folded on center, glued together, and hung up as 3 D ornaments!  Im in the process of doing that right now!  Or use as bag toppers, flat ornaments, tags, and anything else you can dream up!  They are available here for $2.50

PRICE REDUCTION ALERT

I have noticed that I made a BIG Boo Boo and all my cut files I listed at $3.00.  Another case of looking at one thing and typing another.  All of the pricing has been reduced to reflect the correct price of $1.00 for each individual cut file.  The prices of digital cut file sets will also be reduced (the snowflake set above IS correctly priced!)  Sets will be discounted based on the # of die cuts in each file.

I want to thank everyone who shopped during the Black Friday All Week Sale!  The sale was a success!

UPCOMING PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENTS

Being that NewYear's will be here before we know it, I am working on a couple of great New Year's Images to be released next week so stay tuned here in blog land and/or with the newsletter to see what I have come up with!

Until Next Week,,,,or sooner, if the coffee holds out!
Catch you on the flip,    Floppy!

Hi All!

Yes, it has been a long long long time!  I have missed blogging, creating, drawing and what not!  But, now that life has eased up a bit, I am back at it!  I just put up two new Christmas stamps at Floppy Latte's Digital Designs! Check the Christmas Category under Digital Stamps!   Woot!!!!!!!!  And Im getting another few ready today, since I have a free day to do whatever my little pea-pickin heart desires!  And I desires to draw!!!!!  AND, Since Black Friday is almost upon us, Floppy Latte's Digital Designs is going to have a Black Friday (actually a Black All Week) sale, beginning on Friday, November 25th.  All of my digital images and paper packs will be on sale for 25% off! And if you purchase 5 or more items, you will get one item (for every 5 you purchase) for free!  I appreciate my customers and reward them!

Now, about Manic Monday.  I know a lot of you loved the Manic Monday Freebie.  I am going to be trying to work that back into the blog!  Since the lock out and hack, I have replaced computers, moved, gotten a full time job, and yes, HI SPEED INTERNET (after 5 long years of waiting!)  So I just may have a bit more time to get you all some great freebies.  Please please be patient with me a little longer while I revamp and get into second gear!  Also, drop me a comment to let me know what you all would like to see in the way of stamps for Manic Monday.  I love to hear all of your great ideas for stamps!

Well, I did mention that I had two new stamps up in the store, and it just would not be right if I did not give you a little look see here!







Pretty Pretty! They are both priced at $3.00, and are just waiting to adorn your holiday cards and handcrafted projects this holiday season!


Now, a question for all of you crafty crafters that read my blog.  Would you like to see digital cut files for cutting machines offered by Floppy Latte's Digital Designs?  If so, give me a shout at admin@floppylattedesigns.com or leave a comment on this post.  I have a great line of silhouettes (the Hat Ladies) that make great cut files.  Just another option that I would like to offer if the interest is there.  They do take a bit of time to perfect so I dont want to bog myself down with stuff that you don't want!  So just give me a little holler if this is something that you would like to see!

Well, my Bentley's Peach tea is steaming and ready, so I think it is time that I get back to the digital drawing board and get that other image ready for the store!

Thank you all so much for hanging in there with me during this difficult time!

Happy Thanksgiving to all !

My Blog has finally been unlocked.

Hello everyone.

Yes, MIA sucks.  Blogger had my account locked up due to hack issues.  Some parts of my store, including the NL had been hacked as well.  Still working out a few missing files for my Newsletter, and replacing missing stamps as well.  So, once this is all worked out, I will be back to normal.  I can't say exactly when I will be able to get everything loaded back up and working properly.  You can still purchase safely in my store, those files are securely protected, it was some supplemental outside files that were damaged.  Sooooo, while I am busy workin on it all, I just wanted to finally be able to give you an update!

See you shortly!

Manic Monday Freebie 1 of 3

Hey there everyone!  Its Monday, yep it sure is!  First, I was locked out of work for 45 minutes!  Then the air just would not keep up with the convection oven in the bakery and my afternoon girl was 30 minutes late......Yes it is a Monday!  And as a gift to all my followers - Since I have reached 100, I have a coupon for you to use if you are so inclined!  $3.00 off a $5.00 or more purchase!  The coupon code is BLOG100. (all caps all one word!), and you can still get the freebie below and use the coupon at the same time!  SWEET!  This coupon expires at MIDNIGHT ON JULY 17TH so you have a week to shop!

Anywho, I have your first of three Manic Monday Freebies ready for you!  Remember I told you it would be related to summer in some way?  Well here is a beachy little number!  Sand Dollars!   I absolutely love to hunt for these with my toes on the sand bar at Treasure Island in Florida!  It is such fun!

If you would like to snag this freebie, just click HERE  No coupon needed.  This particular freebie is only good until July 12th at Midnight.  At that time, the second freebie will go online.  Im spreading them out over the week, due to my new full time job as a baker/decorator/Bakery Manager and Full time Presley employee (old job,just more hours!) I will be revamping the freebie schedule in the near future to accomodate the new working hours but I will give you a heads up when that happens.  But never fear!  There will be at least one freebie and Newsletter each week!  And I will be having an End of Summer sale as well during August.

Floppy Latte's Digital Designs is also sponsorning a few challenge blogs coming up, and when they go live I will make those announcements in the Newsletter as well!  I am simply excited about that as well!
Well, that, as they say, is that.  Short and sweet! 

See you all on Wednesday when the 2nd of the 3 freebies is released!

***MANIC MONDAY FREEBIE***

Hi Everyone!  Well, Im back to my original format!  Finally!  I think I have all the bugs worked out so things, I  hope, will be a bit less "MANIC" this week.  A few of the "first things first"
1.  The Red Cross Drive/Sale is still going on until the 29th of June.  I am donating 100% of the sales from Floppy Latte's Digital Designs to the Red Cross and Kevin Pond's Family.  If you are new to this drive, Kevin is one of my significant other's (Mark) employees whos family lost EVERYTHING, including a few family members for  few days, in the tornadoes that destroyed most of Joplin MO.  All of his family is now accounted for safe and sound, but now the really painful part begins....the rebuilding.  Kevin has been a faithful and trustworthy employee of Mark's for three years and this is one small thing I can do to help his family and the other families that have been hit by these devastaing storms. 
2.  The FLDBLOGGER coupon is still good as well.  It is worth $5.00 off of a $10.00 or more purchase, again, with all the proceeds going to the Red Cross and Kevin Pond.  Also, you can click on Red Cross and donate directly there if you do not feel comfortable making a purchase.  Any donation to the Red Cross will help.  It could be one of us next time and I would like to think there are others out there that would do the same if they were in my position!  But I do have to say, I have the greatest customers, because together, all of you have donated over $200 to date.  That may not seem like a lot, but added to the big picture it is wonderful!  So, I must say a HUGE HEARTFELT THANK YOU to everyone that has made a purchase!

Now, on to the Manic Monday Freebie.....
This week I stepped out of the box just a wee bit.  Funky Floral is similar to the Mendhi henna art that East Indian Brides have done on their hands and feet before their wedding ceremony.  I can see this being done in multiple layers with added bling for the maximum wow factor!

***UPDATE ON KEVIN POND'S MISSING FAMILY MEMBER***

Good Friday Morning to everyone!  GREAT NEWS!  Anna has been located safe and sound!  This is such a relief to Kevin and his family.  They are preparing a trip out to Joplin to be with the family and help to begin the rebuilding process, not only from the physical losses but starting to heal the emotional damage as well!  I just wanted to pass along this wonderful information to you all, as you all have been so supportive of the family!  The Red Cross Donation Drive/Sale at Floppy Latte's Digital Designs is still going on and the FLDBLOGGER ($5.00 off a $10.00 or more purchase) is still active!  Even though all are safe and sound, there is so much work to be done in that area.  You, the customers at Floppy Latte's Digital Designs have raised almost $200.00 to go to the Red Cross.  I want to personally thank each and every one of you that have purchased or donated during this drive.   The drive is going on until June 29th, when a full accounting of all donations and purchases will be provided to those who have participated in this fundraiser!  But we are not done yet.  Every dollar you spend on my images until June 29th will be going to help rebuild and repair the lives of Kevin's family and all of those that were impacted in the devastating storms.  You all are all angels in my eyes!  From the Bottom of My Heart, I wish to thank you all for your past and future purchases and donations. 

Again, I wanted to thank you all for your wonderful participation!  It's not over yet so if you find an image that you adore at my store, go ahead, get it, and your total purchase price gets donated to the Red Cross and Kevin Pond.  And if you feel uncomfortable purchasing or donating here, please click on any Red Cross link and donate directly to the Red Cross.  You never know, the next time it could be any one of us and I like to think that there would be others out there that would do the same thing as you all are doing!

Again, Thank You All!  See you on Manic Monday!

***MANIC MONDAY FREEBIE and Update on Kevin Pond's Missing family member and the Red Cross Drive

Happy Memorial Day!
Before I get to the Manic Monday Freebie, I just want to give you an update on the Red Cross Drive for the Tornado Victims of Joplin MO, and the status of the remaining family member missing from Kevin Pond's Family.  Anna is still missing.  We are praying with all of our might that she is found alive and well.  Spirits are still high, but we do realize that the worst may be coming.  The Red Cross Drive Sale is still on in the shop and the FLDBLOGGER (I have changed the coupon so that it can be reused by you over and over until June 29th!  I though this would be a good thing!  Now you have to let me know if it kicks you, so I can reset you!) coupon is still active.  Remember, all proceeds (100%) from any sales at Floppy Latte's Digital Designs until June 29th, are being donated to the Red Cross in Joplin MO.  We have to date collected over 150.00 to send!  It is not a lot in the grand scheme of things, but every little bit adds up and I want to personally thank each and every one of you that donated or purchased from the store!  I try to send each of you a personal email when you purchase or donate, and I might have missed someone but just know that my family and the Family of Kevin Pond thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your kindness and genorosity!
