What A Hoot! has just released in all of my stores. It is FUN. It is Fall-ish. It is FULL of elements to make you smile and dress up everything from Halloween photos to Thanksgiving activities of the young and old. It’s a little bit different from the standard owl kit AND it’s on sale right now in all of my stores for a limited time.
This weekend I am in Illinois on a genealogy jaunt. The McClenning side of my family and especially my grandmother insists we have Irish roots. I’ve yet to find an Irish immigrant other than a Canadian back in 1813. Our family roots go back before the first American by birth and I’ve made it my mission to connect the dots, to prove unequivocally, by way of documentation, whatever the “truth” is. The interesting thing about genealogy is there is rarely a straight line to any piece of the family puzzle. I suppose that is one reason some people abandon the search early on and choose to work forward. There have been days I was certain I would just leave those ancestors alone and pass the job of hunting them down to someone else but for those of us who can’t get past our curiosity, those moments pass quickly.
You KNOW you are a genealogist when the last conversation of the day, the last thought that goes through your mind, the first thing you think about the following morning, is “What did I miss?”. Some days you just have to move to another branch or another tree altogether, but when finding your roots is part of who you are, you always find your way back to that one piece of information and you take another look or in this case, another trip. You travel where you need to go to try to “prove it”. This weekend I’m on a “proving” mission. Wish me luck!
Time Traveler is the first Mega Collection in my Heritage Scrappers series. The palette definitely has a feminine flair with splashes of pinks, mauves, and light greens but take those out and you’ve got the foundation of a vintage kit that has a little something for any page style. Members of my Heritage Scrappers Monthly Club received this Mega along with some bonus genealogy tools back in September. Each month members receive a new Mega Collection with Bonuses at a 63% – 82% discount. This Mega Collection, (and the bonuses) are still available to anyone who joins the Heritage Scrappers Club (HSC) before November 1st. HSC is a membership plan for avid genealogy scrappers but you’ll always be able to get the Mega the following month in my stores at a 55% introductory discount for two weeks. The bonuses will be sold separately at some point in the future at a 30% discount.
You can see the individual plans here.
SAVE 30% on individual packs or 55% on the MEGA Collection through 11/05/17
The lovely palette and Highlands theme depicts my visual story of a favorite book by Diana Gabaldon featuring the detailed love story of 18th century Scotsman, James Fraser and the time traveling 20th century Englishwoman, Claire Randall.
The mix of warm autumn florals and foliage combined with animals and insects from the countryside will have you searching for the perfect antique photos for your scrapbook projects. Lace hankies, soft ribbons, and a treasure chest of jewels will make feminine pages come to life. A rustic lantern, cut wood, and fall leaves are all you need to scrap masculine photos or any family outdoor adventure.
If you favor a dark palette, woodsy elements, and lots of texture, Highlands will be a collection you come back to again and again.
Available now, as part of the October Coordinating Collection at theStudio for only $1 each or you can pick up the entire collection for $8.
Be sure to check out the matching Highlands set by Over The Fence Designs. It’s filled with plaids, alphas and bits and pieces to scrapbook your old or new travel photos.

If you’ve been following my newsletter or social media lately, you know that I am getting back to my heritage scrapping, genealogy fact finding, roots. I’m not sure you ever get caught up when you’re researching. In my case, I am certain that it will be a life long journey and I’m loving every step of the way. As I browse through old photos, I realize the need for some specific kits. One Room School by Over The Fence Designs was designed for those old photos of children in laced up boots or maybe even no boots at all. It is a celebration of the school Marms, with an antique typewriter, bell, and the token apple. It is full of vintage papers, flowers, stacked antique books, and slate chalkboard.
If you’ve been holding onto group photos of children with their lunches in pails, this might be just what you’re looking for. We have bonus freebie tags on all of our social media too. Don’t forget to pick them up and complete your kit or collection.
