If you need a cup of coffee then go grab one because this is going to be a big post.
I have 4 new kits in the store (and today and Monday the store is on sale) and of course 4 freebies for you.
First is the newest bundle. My great designing friend, Pmarie and I have decided to do a collection, all based in the Horoscope, a new kit will come out each month until we have done the whole Horoscope.
This months kit is Pisces.
The tides of winter are retreating and March is here. With it comes a season of change and a chance for renewal. Commonly associated with Pisces, a night sky constellation depicted by two opposing fish, March is also symbolized by the gemstone aquamarine and the springtime flower narcissus, better known as the daffodil. These symbols evoke fluidity and decisiveness, a chance for reflection and contemplation of the path ahead. Perfect for project 365/52/12 albums, Pisces will help you to celebrate all that is March, from springtime to St. Patrick’s Day, Easter and March birthdays. In keeping with its celestial theme, Pisces includes sundials and symbols of the zodiac, along with sparkling gems and a variety of flowers like the lotus blossom, lily, and of course daffodil. You'll find ribbons, frames, buttons, and many aquatic accents to help you decorate your pages, all matched with a selection of papers, from embossed, mystical and whimsical, to patterns and coordinating cardstock. If you're planning layouts with a March theme, let the stars be your guide; you'll find everything you need (and more!) in this March-themed collection from Julie C and Pmarie Designs.

Now, new kit number 2 is the next in the My Story Collection
Our Love Story
As scrapbook artists, we know that life is more than the humdrum of everyday existence. Life is a story with chapters and morals, lessons to be learned, and memories to be shared. In this 6 collection series, Tell Me A Story, you'll find kits that will help you to record those chapters in a unique and personal way. The series began with My Story, a collection designed for telling the story of you, from your favorite food to your happiest day. This second kit in the series, The Story of Us, builds on that beginning with a new chapter, this time about love. In pastel pinks, yellows, and blues, you'll find romantic accents like hearts, flowers, ribbons, lace, and bows, plus one-of-a-kind elements like a bride and groom, a wedding chapel, and even a first home. The collection includes a set of sweetheart flairs, a pack of decorative tags, and journal cards on which you can record details about your photos and memories. Choose from 3 paper sets: embossed, patterned, and cardstock, and create titles, names, and dates with the heart-shaped alpha set designed to coordinate with the collection. For first dates and weddings, anniversaries, Valentine days and everything in between, record the story of you and the one you love with The Story of Us.

In the modern zodiac, February is associated with Aquarius, a water-bearing constellation in the sea of the sky. It is also symbolized by the gemstone amethyst, and the fragrant flower violet.

You'll find ribbons, frames, and plenty of additional accents to help you decorate your pages, all matched with a selection of papers, from intricately embossed, mystical and whimsical, to patterns and coordinating cardstock.

and now for the final kit, Luscious
Most of the time an unadorned life is perfectly satisfactory; but every now and then a little royal treatment is deserved, don't you think? From a luxurious armchair to peacocks, pearls and gold, the Luscious collection is perfect for decorating photos that deserve that once-in-a-blue-moon lavish treatment. In blue sapphire and yellow topaz, you'll find tapestry-inspired papers, flora and fauna (including a lovely blue bird and a peacock feather), and in gold, an ornate butterfly, jewelry box, and filigree. The collection also includes embossed cardstock, an elegant alpha set, clusters, stacked papers, brushes, and even word tags like 'exquisite' and 'heavenly' to help you adorn your page. If you have photos depicting luxury, you'll need a luxurious layout to display them on, and Luscious is just the collection you'll need to create one.
