Happy Day!

Hello!  I've been working really hard to get set up so I can start making a whole big bunch of NEW Tumble Fish stuff:  lots of handmade art items, new collage sheets, and more!  I've needed to really clean out, gather up, and get myself organized.

But, I took a little break from all of that to participate in a couple of fun challenges in the forum where they are celebrating Digital Scrapbooking Day with a big sale, games, challenges, and prizes!   I loaded up on some Crowabout StudioB and Itkupilli kits because I really needed a break from my own images to get some new creative perspective (and their kits are totally awesome!).

You can find the challenges in the forum HERE

One last reminder!

This is not good-bye!
This is the last day of my retirement sale at  I don't want you to miss out on the incredible sale and the last chance to grab these kits.  The picture below is linked right to my shoppe so just click on it.

I don't know what's next but I am going to be busier than ever.  Keep your eye out for new things coming your way soon.  And you never know, sometime down the road I may be designing at Mischief Circus again (with all new stuff).  I don't know that, but never say never!  Maybe I'll be a guest designer there now and then.  Either way, I'll always be a die hard Mischief Circus fan and participating as a customer and friend in lots of the creative magic that happens there so expect to see more Mischief Circus news in the future.

It's getting closer!

My retirement from image kit designing is nearly here.
Just a few days left before my image kits at are gone for good.  You can find the big retirement sale HERE.

Last ever image kit released
As part of the Monthly Mischief collaboration, I released my last little kit this week.  It's only available until September 18 when we'll pull the curtains on my run as a kit designer.  The Monthly Mischief collaboration includes kits that share a word and color theme from several designers so there are lots of coordinating kits on sale now at Mischief Circus!  You can find my kit HERE and the other Monthly Mischief kits HERE.

New Website
Again, I don't know how it's going to turn out in the end, but I have a new working website up and running!  It's easy to get to . . .

This blog will be updated regularly with day to day news but the website will host my gallery.  Things will get streamlined soon!

New Free Images
I'm still figuring out how everything is going to work in the end, but for now anyway, I've set up a "Free Stuff" page right here on this blog (look at the top of the page just under the banner).  I will let you know here on the main page when I post something new on the "Free Stuff" page.  Today, I put up some of the free images I've given in the past and added a couple of new things.

Mail Love
I just received the most lovely hanging doll from my friend Nancy Baumiller of Crowabout Studio B.  Nancy makes fabric and paper dolls, paper mache creations of all kinds, amazing journal pages, and is a kit designer at

Trying to work up the courage
In cleaning out storage and garage, I found this old date book over the weekend.  I'm thinking it would make a great journal book of some sorts.  I've never had the courage to try journaling (as in actual get dirty with paint and markers and glue page after page for one book) . . . but I at least brought this into my desk.

We shall see.  I have so many things I want to do and try, I don't where to start just yet.

Retiring me and retiring kits!

Artist Friends .. . BIG news!
Stayed tuned for more details coming in the next day or so.
It's a little scary for me to make such a big change, but in order to better address the needs of my family & household, I am retiring as a kit designer.

I will continue on as Tumble Fish Studio in new ways . . . maybe a few collage sheets on Etsy, and some freebie images & challenges on my blog, and some new endeavors as I get things worked out. I yearn to just make art to make art. But, my time as a kit designer is coming to a bittersweet end. 

I will miss it dearly but I will forever be a loyal fan and customer and friend of Mischief Circus. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart to Hollie for everything she's done for me and all she's taught me. Thank you to the most amazing Creative Team people EVER! Thank you, too, from the bottom of my heart for being the most wonderful supportive friends and customers I could have ever imagined. I am indebted to you all! 

The retirement sale starts Thursday August 25.

New exciting things (challenges, free images, and more) coming right here to this blog soon.  Please come back for another visit!

I just released 2 new image kits last night. (more details below) I have one other kit coming out the end of the month and then I am taking a few weeks off from designing kits.

Last Call!

Hello everyone!

Today is the last day to save up to 40% on many image/collage kits in my Tumble Fish Studio shop at  This sale only comes around 2 times a years so it's a good time to stock up.

You still have one more day to play in all of the games and challenges section of the Mischief Circus forum too!  

Lucky winners will be randomly drawn to win prizes!  You can find all of the fun HERE .

Did you know Mischief Circus has it's own Facebook group?  

It's a closed group where we mingle and goof off and where people share work using MC kits and ask questions and share ideas!  Anyone is welcome to join us!  You can find our group HERE.

In addition, I am going to be retiring lots of older kits.  

I've just changed styles, learned how to do things better, and may have a different monitor than I did when I made some of the older kits.  Some see so dark to me.  Anyway, it's time to clean out and make room for newer kits.  Some of the images in these older kits will be redone and added to new kits (with new images too), but some of these will be gone forever.  I'll be cleaning out about 6-8 kits a week for a few weeks.   If you decide to grab any of these, please download and back up your files immediately as once these kits are gone, they are gone for good.   And stay tuned for the next set of kits to retire!

These kits will be available at the last sale price through May 15 and then gone! (they are linked to the "Last Call: going going gone" section of our shop)

World's Greatest . . .

ZEROOOOOOO!   When I was a kid, my dad would raise my arm up in the air and say in his announcer voice, "Ladies and Gentleman!  I'd like you to meet THE. WORLD'S. GREATEST. ZEROOOOOOO!"   When I used to tell my kids this story, they would say something like "ahhhh, mom.  That's so mean.  Why would he do that?" etc.  It never once dawned on me when I was a kid that it could have any meaning other than I was something special and wonderful and he made me giggle.  Now that my kids have raised the question, I've wondered about it . . . what the meaning was for him, etc.    My dad was not big on bragging or showing off . . . very humble and preached humility . . . . could have been another way to do that.  He could've just wanted to make me laugh.   I don't know.

Anyway, I may in fact be the World's Greatest Zero, but I had fun with the newest collaboration among the designers of  We each put together a kit with the theme of  the World's Greatest.   I left mine rather open ended with lots of blank prize medals and trophies and sashes.  (everything below is in one kit)

There's a really GREAT thing about this collaboration . . . just look below!

Now, not only is there a GREAT collaboration happening, but it's also International Scrapbooking Day week at MC and so, as we do twice a year, we're hosting a GREAT sale!   You can most of my kits 40% off in my shoppe HERE.  (newer releases are 20% off)

And to top it all off, MC is giving away $400 worth of prizes away in our games and challenges forum!

Cut apArt sheets!

I felt like splashing a bunch of color around so here is my first set of  Cut apART (get it?) sheets! Print them and cut out strips, shapes, and borders for collage work.  Or use them as they are for journaling or stationery backgrounds.  I included two solid sheets that you can use on top of the patterned papers, too.  Digitally, there is all kinds of fun to be had!  Clip the papers to the shapes png sheet and you have lots of useful bits.  But my favorite thing to do?   In your digital program, lay these sheets on top of one another and play with the layer styles to create entirely new magic!!!

This preview shows the smaller sized versions on printable jpg collage sheets.   The gray shape sheet comes in printable jpg format and png format to make it easier to use digitally.
 The preview below just shows some postcard or tag backs I made digitally "clipping" the patterened sheets to the gray card pattern in various sizes.

Starlight is still on sale because honestly, it is my favorite kit (that I made) ever if I do say so myself. You can find it in my shoppe here along with my new Cut apART sheets kit . . . my shoppe is here:
