Feature Week Winners + One More Chance!


Holla friends! I hope you all are having a fantabulous Friday so far!!! I’m sad and excited at the same time. Sad because It’s not my feature week anymore …sniff… BUT, I have a new releases in the shop + more today which totally makes up for it! Let’s just get right to it shall we? Say hello to the Life Story | April ’14 Bundle No.1 (whew, that was long) kit!


Whoa! Ok, this is the first Bundle in my Life Story April collection. There’s six kits in this sucker with the individual kits available also: Elements, Papers, Stamp Sheet, Buttons, Wood Chip Cards and Glitters.And remember when I said there would be a first from me? Yeah, well these are them :)

the wood chip cards

I’ve always loved the look of wood pieces and wanted so badly to create some for this collection. There are these cards and you can also find a bit off wood chipies in the elements as well. Super Stoked on how they turned out! I hope you all like them too! Here is some April bundle inspiration!

Lots of eye candy in this post. Dude, I think I rubbed my eyes like twice already lol! Now, this IS a new release so that means all the individual kits and the bundle are all 30% off through Sunday! YAY! And the reeeeeally cool part is that I’m about to announce some winners.

Last post I asked this question for the win: What is your favorite social media outlet? I have to say, I really enjoyed reading each and every one of your comments. I loved the fact that a lot of you use Facebook to keep up with loved ones who are far away and couldn’t really do so as efficiently otherwise. On the other hand, some of you roll over Facebook with a monster truck, twice, because it’s a hot A** mess. I get both sides. Other social media sites like Pinterest and Instagram were also favorited. And then there were few who avoided social media sites all together. Taking the zen way. I super totally get it :)

I choose Facebook (for now) for one reason only. It’s easiest for me. I do NOT like the fan page part of it. I think it’s so wrong that out of all of my followers each post I get may, at most, reach half that….on a good day. That erks me to the core. But it’s familiar to me. I’m really wanting to get started with Pinterest. That’s my next step. And you guys are right…if you don’t have good resolve you can be sucked in to Pinterest bliss and not come out for hours. Dangerous! lol…

So…with all that said, here are the Random {Dot} Org winners of the Life Story | April Bundle No.1 kit


kd_april14_winer1 crazy






Congrats ladies! Be on the lookout for my email! Crazy how they ended liking three different ones ^_^


I have one last hurrah for you all! Are you ready? If you purchase the Bundle kit, you automatically get entered to win a seat in my Scrapaneers Class: Krafting With Karla!!!!!!


If you dig my design and you dig my pages then this class is totally for you because in this class you get inside my head. I teach how I create the layouts that I do. My methods, techniques and thoughts behind it all. So…there you have it! Get the kit and you just might win the class! You must purchase the Bundle by next Thursday, April 17 10:30pm PT for a chance to win. I will announce the winners on Friday ^_^

Good luck, Thank You and Enjoy!

Feature Week Day 5 + a glitter tip



Hello, hello! It’s day 5 of My feature week and today I wanted to talk about Glitter! Now, I love glitter, It doesn’t have to be over the top or raunchy. No, in fact, it can be very classy and sophisticated. (Although, If I could grow wings and throw globs of glitter on them I would in a heart beat. Just sayin’)

My love for glitter with crafting started years ago back when I was creating traditional projects. I would add a bit here and a little there. Now that I’m a digital designer I’m ecstatic that I can bring that same love back through Photoshop layer styles!

Some of you dig the glitter styles I have been releasing but have some questions on how they work. Forgive me for not putting this tutorial together from the jump. That was a silly oversight. But I’m here now to tell you how to get your glitters looking their best when resizing your page. Here we go!



Thats it! Glitter is perfect to add subtle sparkly detail to your pages! Try glitter styles on stickers, cards, papers, and embellies. So much fun to add some glam to your creations!!! Simply be on the layer/design you want to have glittered and in your STYLES pallet click on the glitter or gloss glitter of your choice. Then, if you follow the tips above, you can have sparkle goodness on your resized pages too! Contact me if you have any questions and enjoy!
