It's March already! Can you believe it? We've been really busy here at the store, checking in all the new CHA goodies that have came in the past couple of days. I've also been busy trying to get photos uploaded to the online store for the new products....bear with me, there's a LOT of new stuff! LOL
Over to the left, you'll see a beautiful layout done with March's kit "He Said". Liza asks..."who says you can't use this for girl pictures?" LOL
I don't know how many of you are aware that we have a Design Team that posts on their own blog every day....but if you didn't know that, you should really hop on over there and check it out!
Every day there is a new post from one of the girls there. It may be a card, a layout, a project, or just a fun spot they've found on the Internet. Every Saturday there is a class and every Sunday there is a challenge to help you along your creative journey.
This layout to the left is from Angie. She used Piggy Tales papers, etc which is great, as they are our featured manufacturer this month. Every month, a new manufacturer takes the spotlight and saves you 15% off on everything from that manufacturer! So, if you haven't heard of Piggy Tales, check it out in the store. They have some beautiful stuff!
Here are some layouts from the team using the February She Said kit. This kit is filled with girly goodness from My Mind's Eye and Sandylion. Check out Liza's layout to the right. The MME papers are just sooo fun and colorful.
The layout here on the left is Lucy's. She used the Sandylion papers and some Maya Road chipboard, AND the Tim Holtz mask with the Maya Mists. Some really fun things to play with in this kit along with the gorgeous papers and embellishments, no?
Tomorrow, you'll see some pictures of the February card kit. I think this one was sooo cute, and can see why it is almost sold out already!
I used some Lizzie Anne Designs stamps for the cup and sentiment.
I colored in my coffee cup with Copic Markers. We're starting a Copic Club in January as well, which will get you started on collecting all of these cool markers!
This kit is perfect for any male in your life...from newborn to great-grandpa. However, they need not be JUST for the guys! With some Imaginisce flowers and Doodlebug Brads, this could be for anyone!
We have included 2 sheets of 3 different pattern papers in the full 12x12 size. That way you can cut up and use them however you want! We have also included 4 colored cardstock in 12x12 size and 6 sheets of 8 1/2 x 11 white cardstock to make your card bases out of (if you choose that direction). We have also included 12 A2 sized envelopes (although, we finished 18 cards with just the goodies shown here). Embellishments included are the cardstock sticker sheet, Basic Grey birthday rubons, Imaginisce flowers and Doodlebug brads.
We also have some suggested add-ons that you'll see linked in the store on the 1st of January. These include some stamps you can use to finish your cards (again ifyou choose that direction. I completed all of my cards using just the rubons and stickers and things included in the kit). You can totally personalize your cards just by adding a few stamped images as well!
Add that to our perfectly customized and coordinated Copic marker kit for January and you've got an AMAZING double-whammy of card-makng goodness!
Starting January 1, we'll be debuting 2 new kits here at A Walk Down Memory Lane.
We will continue to do 1 monthly scrapbook collection kit filled with papers, cardstock, embellishments, alphas and all that you've come to expect from a kit by A Walk Down Memory Lane.
We are adding a Copic Marker club *gasp* yes you heard that right! A Copic Marker club will add 6 markers per month to your collection. At the end of your 6 month club membership, you will have 36 markers and your choice of an acrylic holder for your markers or a Colorless Blending Pen!!
Here you see the first 6 markers for the January kit. These markers are PERFECTLY matched to our January card kit (which you'll see more of tomorrow).
This is a great way to start building your collection of Copic Markers. They are some of the best markers on the market, and we're bringing them to you!
Some details about the Copic Club:
1. This is a monthly-billed club. It works a bit different than our collection and card kits. You will pay for your first month by purchasing it at the store. After that, we will automatically charge your card (or bill your paypal account) on the 5th of the month and ship them out to you. IF you want to add a card kit, collection kit, or any other store products, you can order those by the 4th of the month and we'll combine shipping to save you money on shipping.
2. The Copic Markers you will receive are the SKETCH Markers. We feel these are the best value as they have the brush tip, can be refillable, and are available in 322 colors! We also like them because they work in Copic's air brush system.
3. The Copic Marker Club is $33.99 plus shipping, per month. Our shipping is $6.55 flat rate for any orders under $75. After $75 your shipping is free.
If you have any questions about our Copic Marker club, feel free to post a comment here, or you can email me at email@example.com
I hope you're as excited as I am about our new venture!
For those of you who have been around the blog for a while, you may have noticed a bit of a LOOONG break in September/October. As I posted yesterday, we've moved into our new location and that took much longer than I thought!
So, for those of you who are waiting for the kits that were *supposed* to appear in the store on the 1st of October...your wait is not much longer!! These GORGEOUS kits will be making an appearance on Saturday, November 1. The Design Team has been showing off sneak peeks of the kit this week, and you'll have to go there to check them out! Here's a direct link to the DESIGN TEAM BLOG! Enjoy!

This kit will go on sale on October 1 so start prepping hubby 'cuz this month is gonna be HARD to choose which kit you need!
Well, here's a kit to help you with those school days photos. We've combined KI Memories School Days with GCD Studios Schooled and created a fun kit with 2 frosty pattern papers, double sided papers, rubons, rhinestones, diecut shapes, cardstock alpha stickers and sooo much more!
While there are 3 papers that are "school themed" the others are just a great mix of some basic colors.
Blueberry and Fudge are such a beautiful mix together, don't you think? This September kit is a gorgeous mix of Chatterbox Botanico papers and embellishments and Cloud 9 Cocoa Mint. We've added some Basic Grey rubons, American Crafts ribbon and more goodies!
Basic Primaries are a favorite mix of bright primary patterns from the Cosmo Cricket Hello Sunshine and Bo Bunny Summer Cottage collections. Add in some Doodlebug and Daisy D's embellishments and we've put together a kit sure to please most everyone!
