Standing UP for Artist's rights!!

Do you love Saturated Canary images?

Then make sure you buy the real deal!!

Someone loves Krista Smith's images so much
that she has been attempting to COPY  
...and sell them!!

The purpose of my post tonight,
is to educate you so you'll know better.

Buying the real deal supports the artist.

Buying copies only supports a thief and further copyright theft.


There is a so called "artist" who has been flat out, no shame, copying and selling images so similar to Krista's (even using the same names) that it's very apparent that they are a copy!
(and not always a good copy)

It would be so sad to see Krista shying away from this
because of just one person's lack of shame!

Please make sure, when you buy, that you always buy from Krista!


It's time for those who disrespect copyright laws
to receive ZERO TOLERANCE!!

Thank you!

Winterland Album

Hello and Happy New Year!!

I'm bring you something new, my first-ever chipboard album.  I made this one at a class I took in December, then went home and made two others for Christmas gifts.  I loved it so much I had to keep my first one!!  LOL  This is the front cover.  The back cover wraps around the front cover and has that "Winterland" tag attached to it.  It closes with magnets.  I am being lazy by not taking new photos of what I did to it (by way of adding tags) after I brought it home.  You'll be able to see most of the pockets, but not the tags.  Sowwwy!!
This shot shows the inside of the front cover and the first page.  You can also see the flap of the back cover there on the right.  The paper is so beautiful and glittery, but I'm afraid it won't show up online.  Maybe you can see a bit of it on the front cover??  The blue is glitter and came that way.  I did not need to add any.

This photo shows the backside of the 1st page and the 2nd page, which is a pocket.

Here's the backside of page 2 and the front of page 3.  Isn't the paper YUMMY??  SO wintry!!

This is the back of page 3 and front of page 4, another pocket.

Now you're looking at the back of page 4 and the front of the back cover.

And, finally, the back cover.  I'm going to be sorry, tomorrow,
that I didn't take new photos, I know I am!!  LOL  However,
this lets you see this gorgeous paper before I covered some of it up.  :)  Maybe, my next post will be of the completed album.  You just never know!!

The wonderful papers are BoBunny Snowfall.  It's very difficult to get now, as it sold out very quickly!!  I know, I tried!!  LOL

I used Ranger Faded Jeans ink to distress all edges.
Assorted ribbons were used to embellish the 3 rings I used to bind this album.

Thank you for coming by and checking out my blog.  I've been very busy since Christmas, so I've neglected my blog.  I will try to snap to, and get back to posting.

I got a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas, so you'll be seeing some new, wonderful things in the coming weeks.... :D  I'm so excited!!
