My computer has been on the fritz this month. It’s been really frustrating not being able to create as quickly as I'm used to working. My husband has ordered some parts and it should be back to it’s super happy speedy self in a couple of days! Yay!!! Since I'm going to be back to working fullspeed, I need some theme suggestions!! I’d love it if you’d leave a comment and let me know what theme you’d like to see next!

Before I sign off, I have a little gift for you! I really love to scrap with patterned papers like notebook paper, accounting paper, grids, and school handwriting print. I included a circular handwriting paper in the Nerd Alert kit. (You can see it in Roxana’s layout posted just above.) But I wanted more options. So I created a whole pack of school lined handwriting print papers. Enjoy!

*New Kit* Brain Freeze!!


_KAagard_BrainFreeze_Double_PVW

Hello!! I hope that you have enjoyed the weekly mini kits from the Iron Scrapper all through July!! I really enjoyed creating them, but I’m also happy to get back to working on some full sized kits this month too!

I don’t know if you’ve ever experienced “Brain Freeze” before. It’s that strange short little head ache you can get if you eat a frozen treat too quickly. My daughter had a brain freeze moment when eating frozen yogurt at my sister’s wedding last month, and it inspired the name of my latest products. My newest kit Brain Freeze is all about the frozen treats that are a part of what makes our summer so much fun! This summer my family has gone to the frozen yogurt shop with grandma, eaten at an ice cream parlor on vacation, we've gone through a couple of boxes of those plastic sleeve ice pops and we’ve been making homemade ice pops all summer long! So I decided that a “Brain Freeze” kit was in order!

Brain Freeze is 20% off this week during Fresh Fruit. And you pick up the kit by August 6th, you’ll get the Brain Freeze Quick Pages for FREE!

To take an additional 10% off your purchase, use this coupon code at check out: ka-extra10

I posted a sneak peek contest a few days ago for two chances to win a free copy of Brain Freeze. I really enjoyed reading all of your responses! It’s so fun to hear what your favorites are. I felt like it gave me a little bit of insight into who all of you are. I’ll definitely be asking more questions like that in the future.

I have used Random.org to choose two winners for the sneak peek contest to win a copy of Brain Freeze. Congratulations to #14 (kimfernald) and #60 (Yvonne)! Please email me at kristin.aagard@gmail.com so that I can send the kit to you.

I have two products in the Iron Scrapper category this week. Because my younger sister got married last month, I really wanted to work on a wedding theme so that I could scrap some of the photos I took. So I have created a mini kit called Marry Me found HERE in my store, and a coordinating paper pack, Marry Me {Add-On Paper Pack} found HERE.  I hope you like them!!

Since I have been creating Fruity freebies this month, I thought I’d add one more! Even though I used the dark grey from the Fruity color palette, this Fruity – Stitched Alpha is super versatile and it will really match any layout created with any kit! I hope that you like it!! (Pssst…there’s a new Fruity kit coming next week!!)

I have also created Fruity Collection freebie for you. The Orchard Girls had the chance to meet up twice this year and I was lucky enough to be there both times! We did some painting, art journaling and mixed media type art. I got to play with some of the other girls supplies and fell in love with mists and messy paints. I have created some brushes from mists and sprays and I have been using them on my own digital pages, and in my products and love them! I decided to create some misted page borders for you as a freebie. They are included in 6 colors which coordinate with my Fruity kits. You can use them just as they are or you can easily overlay any color you like, or even clip a digital paper to them to create some fun messy blended patterned page borders. I hope that you enjoy them!

I have two products in the Iron Scrapper this week. First, I have a fun happy rain themed kit. It is inspired by the song Buckets of Rain by Bob Dylan. My hubby and I are both big Dylan fans. I have loved singing Buckets of Rain to my children as a lullaby. You can see my Buckets of Rain inspired kit HERE in my store.

After scrapping with the Iron Scrapper products last week, I felt like I would really like to have a coordinating paper pack that included all of the colors in solid papers and some fairly general themed patterns. So I created All of Me {Paper Pack} to coordinate with all of the Week 2 Iron Scrapper kits. This paper pack was inspired by the song All of Me by Willie Nelson. I do LOVE a good twangy country song. And this song is definitely that! You can see All of Me {Paper Pack} HERE in my store.

I have been working on a fun summer themed full sized kit to release this month. I have had some computer issues that have kept me from finishing it up. I’m hoping that my computer will be nice to me so that I can release it next week, along with a new kit in my Fruity line! So keep your eye out for that soon!

I  have a Fruity themed freebie for you this week!! You may have noticed that I have a “thing” for stitches. So I have created another stitch pack, and this one coordinates with the Fruity kits! You can download Fruity – Stitches 1 HERE for free! (Please note, this stitch pack is available for free for a limited time. Also, it is important to note that this freebie will not qualify for points earned in the Iron Scrapper or Fresh Fruit Challenges.)

I hope that you are all having a fantastic summer! It’s been super hot here in Utah and we have been loving the pool and the air conditioning!! Our family also recently enjoyed a fun road trip up the Oregon coast. I hope that you and your family are having a fantastic summer too. (Or winter if you live in that part of the world!) See you next week!!
