Persnickety Prints - My New Favorite Layout & Photo Printer

So I have some blank space on my walls. I desperately needed to fill them but I really really didn't want to pay $8 per 12x12 at my usual printing spot.

Then I discovered Persnickety Prints.

Persnickety Prints!

In the words of Sandra Lee, "Can I just tell you?" These people are FANTASTIC.

First of all the prices are perfect. Less than $2 for a 12x12? You've got to be kidding me! Secondly, the customer service is phenomenal. I emailed with Chari a bit regarding my prints and she was so sweet, kind, and extremely helpful.

So what did I order? I picked up several 12x12 and 8x8 layouts, three of which are framed on my walls right this minute. I was really impressed with the print quality. All of the colors in the photo stayed true and the print is vivid and eye catching. I was so jazzed, that I placed a second order for Mother's Day gifts. Again, the quality of Persnickety Prints is amazing. I have found a brand new printer for my layouts and I am ecstatic that it won't cost me an arm and a leg! I can save that money for exquisite frames :)

If you're thinking about printing your own digital scrap layouts or creating a photo book, I urge you to visit Persnickety Prints. They have a variety of print sizes available as well as photo books and photo gifts. The prices and quality are unbeatable.

Right now, for iNSD, Persnickety Prints is holding a giveaway with some great prizes as well as 25% off all prints on Monday and Tuesday. You'll have to visit their website for the coupon code and to enter the giveaway.

Here are a couple layouts I printed:

If you're not a Facebook Fan, visit my page and "Like" us! Don't miss out on giveaways and exclusive coupons.

Meet another Facebook Fan!

Hello all! I have another fantastic Facebook Fan to introduce to you today!

This is Christin!! Christin is a stay at home mom of 2 kids, her son is 7 and her daughter is 2. She is also an Airman's Wife. She and her husband are high school sweeties, and are very blessed to call Fairchild, AFB home.. for now. They are both from Western Washington, so they take advantage of being so close to home. Christin dabbles in scrap kit design, so feel free to pop on over to her blog and grab some freebies!
Let's get to know a little more about Christin!

1. How long have you been digi scrapping?
I have been digi scrapping for 2 1/2 years. My grandma is actually the one who introduced me to it, and I am so glad she did!

2. How did you discover Misty's designs?

I actually found her from browsing other digi scrappers on Face Book. I checked out her page and was hooked!
3. Did you paper scrap before you digi scrapped?

I bought a couple things and tried it, but it wasn't working for me. Too messy and expensive!

4. What is your favorite kit of Misty's?

I LOVE the Everyday Happenings - {Project 365} Collab kit. I can think of several pages off the top of my head I could do with this kit. I love the ruler element!

5. What's the one scrapbooking item you can't live without?

Journaling tags! I try to put some journaling on every layout so years down the road I don't have to try and remember dates and names :)

6. How would you describe your scrapping style?

I think have a traditional style. I love symmetrical lines and using lots of papers. I have been working on making clusters, that seems to be every digi scrappers archenemy!

7. Do you have any other hobbies besides scrapping?

I love to bike ride with my hubby and the kids on the weekends, go to the lake and take photos. I love to volunteer for my son's school, it was a great way to meet other mom's when we first moved to this base.

8. What is your favorite movie?

Ok, kinda cheesy.. but I love "You've Got Mail" Meg Ryan is my favorite!

9. What is your favorite book if you enjoy reading?

I am currently reading "Tumtum and Nutmeg" to my son at bedtime, and I think I am enjoying it just as much, if not more than he is!

10. Do you have a blog that we could link to?

Thank you so much Christin for taking the time to answer my questions so we could get to know you better!

And make sure to become a fan of Misty's on Facebook if you haven't already! Have a great day and Happy Scrapping!


LOTW is...

The winner of this weeks LOTW is Buggie185 over at the Funky Playgroud Designs gallery. You can click the link below the layout to go leave some love. The beautiful layout was created using Tweet Tweet by Misty O'Brien Designs. She did an beautiful job. Here it is.

The Tweet Tweet Kit

Remember if you have created any LO's using Misty's designs, post them in the galleries out in the scrap world and your LO just might be chosen for LOTW.


The Creative Divas - JANE

Hello everybody, it's that time again, when you are presented to another fabulous Diva.
This month I want to bring your attention for our Jane.
Northwestern Canada
Married to Joe (yeah, Jane and Joe, lol) and mom to Connor-13, Matei (Ma-TAY) -10, Georgia -6, Abigail -2

1 - How long have you been digi-scrapping?
Just about a year.

2 - Are you a scrapper, designer or both?

3 - How many hours a week (on average) do you spend scrapping?
Oh my goodness. Waaay too many, lol.

4 - Which programs do you use to make your layouts?
CS4, but my awesome husband is buying me CS5!

5 - How would you describe your scrapping style?
I hate saying eclectic, but I think it's eclectic.

6 - Which scrap forum do you visit the most?
The Digi Chick

5 things you love:
Only 5? Colours. Flowers. Old movies. Grass. Three year olds. Coffee. Fabric.

5 things that bother you:
I don't think there are five things that bother me. I prefer not to get bothered about things. It makes life so much easier. Oh. It bothers me when I tell the kids to clean up their messes, and they say they do, but then they don't. Oh man, does that ever bother me. Oh, and I have Lyme Disease. That bothers me too, but hopefully it will go away, and then I'll just be left with kids not listening to me.

What is your Misty's favorite product?
Tweet! Tweet! for sure. It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere used to be my absolute favourite kit, but then Tweet! Tweet! came along... Oh, but I forgot about FortWilderness. Hmm. I have two favourites. :D Maybe three. ;)

Take a look at Jane's favorite pages.
Camping Girl, kit is Fort Wilderness by Misty.

Let Me Help, kit is Fort Wilderness by Misty.

Some Things Never Change, kit is Tweet! Tweet! by Misty.

Jane is a great designer too. Go to her blog to know a little bit more about her and her designs.

See you around!
Have a great scrapping day!


Facebook Diva

Hey everyone! I am so excited to help you get to know one of our fabulous Facebook Divas!

Introducing Kendra Albright. Doesn't she have a lovely family?

To get to know her a little better, here is a little Q&A:

1. How long have you been digi scrapping?
December 2007

2. How did you discover Misty's designs?
I discovered her when she was still at Stuff to Scrap

3. Other than Misty, which other designers are you a fan of?
Seal Scraps, The Scrappy Kat, Scrapalicous Cereal, and This Little Missy are some of my favorites and I totally LOVE DigiDesigns by Nicoles new tool time kit.

4. What is your favorite kit of Misty's?
Fort Wilderness--and I love the photo masks that go with it.

5. Are you participating in project 365/52/12?

6. What's the one scrapbooking item you can't live without?
Besides my computer, for digital scrapbooking I would say all of the papers--I love papers.

7. Tell us a little about yourself - spouse, family, job, where you're from.
We live in Iowa in an 110 year old farmhouse that we are updating on my family farm. Husband Jason is an engineer and son Luke is in 1st grade and daughter Kirsten is in preschool. I am a stay at home mom who seems to always have something to do.

8. Do you have a blog we can feature?

9. Do you have any pets?
No pets--unless you count all of the unwanted Asian beetles that seem to be invading my life lately!

10. What's your favorite book?
I love to read so narrowing it down to one book is hard. I love the Yada Yada Prayer Group series by Neta Jackson and my strange book series that I collect (for an adult anyways) is I have nearly all of the Junie B Jones books--I discovered her when I was teaching kindergarten.

Thanks so much Kendra for letting us get to know you better! It sure made my first post as a new member of Misty's Creative Team a blast!

Happy Scrapping!

New Release Wednesday!

Hi scrappers! I have 3 products hitting the stores today - a collab, commercial use frames, and custom glitter!

Daybreak Scraps (Dawn) had a fabulous kit idea and she invited Teri's Thing O My Jig's and myself to collab with her. The result is "Elegant Azure" the perfect prom/dance/wedding/girlie kit. There's lots of sparkle and a little birdie told me there might be a glitter freebie later this week, right here on my blog. 

You can pick up this fab collab at Gingerscraps. Check out some layouts by my talented CT:

by Lisa

by Adriana

by Carolyn

by Monica

by Loni

and more CT layouts will follow this week. You should head over to my CT's blogs and pick up some freebies! I heard a rumor a few of them will be offering freebies today. You can access their blogs on the right hand side of my blog ------>

I also have two releases at Funky Playground Designs :)

If you love my glitter but don't always need styles or sheets, pick up my new glitter frames. They are available for commercial and personal use. They are in grey, silver, and black hues to make them easily recolorable.

and I am also offering my services for custom made glitter. For $5.00 you get eight glitter styles and sheets in the color you want. These styles are also CU OK. Designers, you can get the perfect glitter to compliment your kits! (cannot be sold as is, for CU can only be used to create elements, papers, and items for your kit, not sold as accessory in present form). 

Also, a reminder - every single sale at both of my stores this month will be donated to Talk About Curing Autism in honor of Autism Awareness month. If you haven't read out Autism story, scroll down my blog posts this month and check out how Ian is recovering from his diagnosis. You can also donate to TACA by clicking on the following link: - Everyone who donates at least $5.00 will receive a $10 GC to one of my stores (your choice). 

And, if you want to stay in touch with me, chat on the wall, get access to exclusive sales, freebies, and contests (I am known for giving kits away at a moment's notice!), then become a Facebook Fan and/or follow me on Twitter! I have two little icons at the top of this page, clicking on them will take you to the respective pages. 

 PS - did you notice those frames match perfectly with the Elegant Azure collab? Did ya? :)

I hope everyone has a good day! Happy Scrapping!
