Hey there! Sorry I have been a bit AWOL from the blog here. Tis the season of football games and marching band festivals and play auditions and...

Well, I think you get the idea!

Stopping by to share that I am up over on the October Afternoon blog sharing some of my scrap space and how I organize my OA goodies. Read more about that here.

Also, Cocoa Daisy Kits are for sale to the general public today! The Main Kit sold out the first day to subscribers! ETA: **And oh my! It looks as though there is already slim pickings as most of the kits are already sold out!! Wowza! I do spy some of the adorably cute stamp sets are still available and the patterned paper kit. Below are a few of the stamps:

It has been a crazy great start to the month at Cocoa Daisy and exciting one too with the launch of the new Daisy Day Planner kits (available here)!! And guess what?!

They are so popular that they will be actually offered as a subscription starting in January in 2015!!! *fist pump

Cocoa Daisy's Sept Kit: Story Time

September is just around the corner and the story goes that it's a great month to be a subscriber and to shop at Cocoa Daisy!

Here are a few of the kits that are available to subscribers now:


How I love it so! The perfect blend for both masculine or feminine layouts. As a mom to two boys it was such a fun kit to create with and my designs compared to the other designers are all so varied! It's is so fun every month to see just how different the looks are from the very same products! Seriously think that is my favorite part of the reveal! You can find all of the Daisy Designers September projects here: Daisy Designer Gallery

And a favorite pick of mine for this month--the exclusive patterned paper! I used both the A & B sides throughout my DT gallery projects! SO much goodness! 

And the add-ons this month are just as fabulous!! I created with Add-on 1; Fairy Tale. Isn't it dreamy?

 This stamp set is awesome! It is about 4x8 and the letters range from about 3/4 inch in height to 1 1/4. I will use this set again and again! (it counts for 2 of the usual 3 stamp sets in the stamp sub this month due to its large size). It does not disappoint. Trust me on this. ;)

 How fun is this stencil that is available in the shop now?
This is a sneak of the exclusive cut files. I will be highlighting the cut files on the Cocoa Daisy blog on September 22. Be sure to mark your calendars for then and stop on by! 

In the meantime, SUBSCRIBERS--head on over to Cocoa Daisy and shop early for the best selection! Kits will go on sale to the general public on Monday, Sept 1, 12PM EST!
Check out the latest addition to the CD kits; The Daisy Planner Kit! Perfect for all you organized people or just people who love a good Filofax type kit for trying to keep organized! ;)
Happy Labor Day weekend!
