Info About Living Life

Inky Hot Mess now designs all of our journal cards, veneers, and flair in house. We have our own suppliers and craftsman now! One of Creative Team members has also begun designing for us. She will be creating Silhouette cutting files that are exclusive to Inky Hot Mess and coordinate with our Living Life.

Here's some info about our new journal cards......

Each card is designed by Inky Hot Mess and is exclusive to us.

Our cards are locally printed. They are not outsourced and printed overseas.

The cards digitally printed so the colors are vibrant. They will not fade.

Our cardstock is thick! We print on 80# cardstock weight. They are heavy duty!

About our flair....

All of our flair are designed by Inky Hot Mess and are exclusive.

They are printed locally as well. They, too, are digitally printed so the colors are vibrant.

We hand cut each one. We hand assemble each piece.

The steel and mylar used to make our flair are all Made in the USA!

Our wood veneers, corks, and acrylics...

All of these embellishments are designed by Inky Hot Mess and are exclusive.

These are all cut by a craftsman in California for us so they are Made in the USA!

Now you know a little more about our products!

Future Releases

We have been very quiet this month. We sincerely apologize for our quiet. Our fearless leader has been very ill not once, but twice. She did get to go on a fabulous retreat that she has been looking froward to. She was sick before it and after it. She's still recuperating, but back to work. And she's working like crazy.

So here is where we are.....

On Tuesday, we will be releasing Autumn Harvest and Happy Haunting Living Life Kits. Yes, they are very late, but guess what autumn and Halloween come every year. And many people still have to scrap them from this year and previous years. We are super excited about these kits because they are the first 100% designed in house. They were also locally printed. We had several issues with our printer that took a few week sot work out, but we have everything worked out and know what to expect in the future.

Both kits contain exclusive 3x4 and 4x6 cards that we designed, flair we designed, and wood veneers we designed. None of those items will be for sale anywhere else! We have lots of add ons as well including several mixed media items.

We also have an autumn Paper Crafting Kit we will be releasing on Tuesday as well. This kit will be our last scrapbooking focused kit for a little bit. We have some projects coming in the next few months. The Paper Crafting Kit contents will always vary.

We have a new item as well. Candace, from our Creative Team, has begun designing for us. She has created digital cutting files that coordinate with Autumn Harvest and Happy Haunting. The files are designed for Silhouette lovers!

We have a lot coming for December! We will be releasing our Grace & Gratitude Living Life Kit first. We will also be releasing our Gratitude Journal at the same time. The Gratitude Journal was offered locally as a workshop and now we are bringing it to everyone in America! There will also be a video for it.

We have more for December! We will have 3 Living Life Kits! Yes, THREE! Our kits are going under a little remodel. We are decreasing the price significantly. To reduce the price, we are reducing the number of embellishments in the kits. The bulk of the embellishments are made by other companies and are made overseas. We are really trying to stick to Made in the USA as much as possible.

The three Living Life Kits each have a different theme. There is a Christmas kit, a New Year kit, and a winter/snow kit. Each kit will contain our exclusive journal cards, flair, and veneers. We may be expanding our embellishments into corks and acrylics, but you didn't hear that from me!

The Paper Crafting Kit is the Family Memory Box. We offered this as a local workshop and now it's available to everyone! We will have a video for this as well.

There's lots coming in January as well! More embellishments exclusive to Inky Hot Mess! We are working hard behind the scenes and have lots up our sleeves.

Autumn Harvest & Happy Haunting

As you've probably noticed, we did not release Autumn Harvest or Happy Haunting today. Inky is not a happy camper right now at all. We have been in contact with our printer and they are having some issues. If they can't get the issues resolved by the end of the week, we will be going to a new printer. We are terribly sorry for this delay. There are some very upset people in the studio today. Please bear with us as we work through this. We know once we get all of the issues resolved that these kits are fantastic and you will need them! :)
