A Fish Designs Opens New Store at Stuff to Scrap!

The day has finally come!!!  A Fish Designs is opening her store at Stuff to Scrap!!! Here is what she has to say:

 I joined the forum there shortly after they opened and now I'm actually opening up a store there.  I was offered a spot there after competing in the Designer Darling Competition. I have a bunch of FUN stuff already in the store there.  And lots of ideas for things to come!!! And to start things off I'm have a GRAND OPENING SALE!!!  Everything is 50% off for the first two weeks!
These first two kits are exclusive to STS for the month of June!!!  If they look familiar they are.  They were my week 3 and week 5 submissions for the Designer Darling Contest.  My week 3 submission was expanded and I love how versatile it is.
 And here are the other products I have in my store.
My creative team had FUN with the two exclusive kits!!!
Aren't those layouts AMAZING!!!  My "Stars" really shined on this one didn't they!!!
Stay tuned for Freebies from my CT at the beginning of the week!

Water Wonders Kit SNP Designer Mentoring Class

Over the past month and a half, I have been taking the Scraps-n-Pieces Designer Mentoring Class. It has been one of the most challenging things that I have ever done. I've learned things I never dreamed of needing to know. I was blessed with the opportunity to work with a wonderful group of girls on Team 6. We each made our own mini kit that coordinates together to be a huge kit called WATER WONDERS. Our Team Mentor was Kelly, from Just for Fun Designs. Kelly was patient and kind and taught us a lot. All of the other mentors from the other teams were quick to step in and help out if we had questions or were discussing things that we didn't fully understand, most especially Karen, LilyAnn and Lori. I have grown a LOT as a scrapper, as a creative team member and taken huge steps towards eventually being a designer in my own right with a lot more practice, work, growth and support from the my family, friends, the digital scrapbooking communities and especially from YOU, my wonderful fans. Thank you! 

Finally, here are a few pictures of my part of the kit Water Wonders. It is FREE to download. Just go to the Scraps-N-Pieces forum and sign up (which is also free!) and then in the gallery, look for these same pictures. My ID there is "jsuarez". I'm so excited and I cannot wait to see pages created with this kit! 

This was fun, and rewarding and it was hard work. I cannot say enough about it, and yes, I most certainly plan to continue to take as many classes as possible to grow as much as I can in this field and I plan to take this one again as soon as it is available. 
Head over to Scraps-N-Pieces and grab not just my contribution to the Team 6 Water Wonders kit, but my other team members pieces also (they are GORGEOUS!!!) and the other teams' kits as well! 

Also, if you are here looking for the SNP May Blog Train, you can ^-> Look Up and Right and click "May Blog Train" or you can scroll, or look below for "previous posts" 
for the download link to that. 
Don't forget to go and "like" my Facebook page for a SNP May Blog Train coordinating Fan Freebie available only to my Facebook Fans! On June 1st that will change (possibly to a mini-mini that coordinates with Water Wonders.) 

Happy scrapping!
