Tales from the Bunker: July Edition

Tales from the Bunker: July Edition

We have a lot going on in the bunker as we prepare for Summer CHA in Vegas. July has been completely shipped out, our August sneaks have been snuck and the Design Team is busy creating with their August kits. We are all so excited about the August kit! Especially the stamps and our exclusive papers. And speaking of our exclusive papers, I have been putting together ideas for our upcoming kits and have also made some changes. Beginning with September, the exclusive Simple Stories/Cocoa Daisy papers will be in the main kit only and no longer in our Day in the Life project life kit. Our Day in the Life project life kit will have 12 more exclusive 3×4 cards. I am VERY excited about who we have teamed up with for these new designs! But do not worry, if you loved having the Simple Stories/Cocoa Daisy exclusives with your Day in the Life kit we are going to offer a few sets of the papers each month for individual sale. The Day in the Life kit sold out very quickly last month, we have increased quantities for August but are fast approaching a sell out again, so if you are interested in our August DITL kit I highly recommend starting a subscription. It has been over 90 degrees here in Michigan all week long and we are so thankful to have the pool! And of course I am in love with how perfect the July kit is for scrapping pictures of our poolside activities! That is about it for now! I’m so excited to be heading to...

Tales from the Bunker: June Edition

We are in full summer swing hear at the Drumheller household, the boys are out of school, the weather is finally warming up and our pool is being installed! I am still amazed that they started Monday morning and by Tuesday afternoon we had a pool in our backyard. It’s been a fun process to watch and every time a big piece of equipment would go past my bunker window I would have to run upstairs and see what they were doing next. The patio area goes in on Friday and Saturday and then landscaping cleans things up on Monday and Tuesday. The boys are on vacation with their Dad until next week Wednesday which actually works out perfect since we were told to not go in the pool until next week, otherwise I think they would go crazy wanting to go in it all weekend! Since Mom and Dad have sold both their home (which had a pool) and their cottage on Drummond island this last month, it really did seem the perfect time for us to put in a pool. More than anything though I am really looking forward to being able to spend a few hours with the boys each day outdoors. It is hard for me to find the time to take them to the beach, water park or lake during the summer and right now it’s just not possible for me to take any sort of vacation with them so this was the best solution for us – I can bring my work out on the patio in the afternoon or evening while they...
JULY KIT SNEAK PEEK: CABANA

JULY KIT SNEAK PEEK: CABANA

Imagine deep turquoise waters, white sandy beaches, a warm yellow sun, and a row of inviting multi colored striped canvas cabana huts. Nice picture, yes? We’ve incorporated that image into our July kit, Cabana, and created a kit that says beachy, summery fun like no other. A delightful mix of Bo Bunny’s Key Lime, the Cocoa Daisy/Simple Stories exclusives, American Crafts, and a bunch of other great manufacturers, Cabana is going to make your scrapping nice and easy this month. The add ons will leave you feeling just as relaxed and ready to create. We’ve got Striped Awning, full of bright rich hues balanced with a great neutral kraft in the Placemat Frames from Jillibean Soup. Lime Rickey brings together a playful alphabet from Crate Paper’s The Pier and some bits and pieces from Lilybee, among others. Hammock, our patterned paper add on has plenty of turquoise and yellows, again balanced with neutrals. And our Day in the Life: July adds a touch of nautical to the month with our exclusive Anchor letterpress card and some fun silver twine. Watch for the sneaks as the DT starts posting on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and our message boards over the next couple of weeks. Search for the #CDSneaks hash tag! Kits and adds on go on sale to subscribers of the main kit on Friday, June 28th at 9 PM EST. Our general public purchase date will be the 1st of June at 12 midnight.

Tales from the Bunker: April Edition

Whew! What a month! April has shipped out with the debut of our new collaborative line with Simple Stories, our new Day in the Life project life kit, and we have let out some sneaks of the Project Art kit. Amidst all of this my Mom and Dad have been in the middle of packing up their home of the last 39 years and moving into a condo. A big life change for them, but I think they are really going to enjoy their new home. I took the boys over to the old house this week for one last visit: The May sneaks are up and again I can’t wait to share the full reveal of our main kit, add ons and our Day in the Life kit. This month’s mix of papers is going on my top 10! Speaking of sneaks, I’m sure you have noticed how the sneak images have changed. We are always looking to keep things updated and fresh and I felt that the old way of displaying our sneaks on the tags had run its course, so our resident graphic designer, Stephanie whipped up the amazing new sneak headers. I loved the headers that Stephanie created but I haven’t thought of exactly how I want to sneak the stamps yet, I think it’s important to give you an idea of what the stamps look like when they are actually stamped so a digital image won’t work. Then, late last night I finally had an idea hit me: This sneak includes all of our stamps; Main Kit, Day in the Life kit, and the...

April Forecast Reveal Day Sneaks & Inspiration

Our April kit, Forecast, promises blues skies with occasional rain cloud bursts! Be sure to have a Bumbershoot, your Wellies, and a Mackintosh handy if you’re heading out for errands for sure! We happen to have one of each (in add-on form) for you because we think they’d also be useful when sitting down to scrapbook. And our long-awaited Day In the Life kit is finally here, for all those interested in documenting the Project Life style! We’ve got a whole set of cards designed by Stephanie to coordinate perfectly with our April kits as well as a lot of other products to help you get the day-by-day recorded. We think you’ll be very happy with our first kit! We’d love to have you join us for a morning cuppa as we share a few of our Design Team’s projects highlighting this month’s add-on kits. Enjoy!   BUMBERSHOOT Kim Stewart sprinkled her beautiful soft style into her amazing layout “Here’s the story…” using the Bumbershoot Add-on. That cut out speech bubble with the layered stickers and pattern paper inside is a fabulous idea! WELLIES Using the Wellies Add-on Denise Morrison created this beautiful layout “Hello There Sunshine”. We love how Denise’s fun messy style shines on this layout! If you look closely Denise gives a great idea for those photo corners…cut them into arrows. MACKINTOSH Like a rainbow after a storm you’ll want to stop and stare at this gorgeous “Could You Be Any Cuter?” layout Jaime Warren has created with the Mackintosh Pattern Paper Add-on. We think you’re going to love Jaime’s first gallery as a Cocoa Daisy...
Tales from the Bunker: February edition

Tales from the Bunker: February edition

So far February has given me a chance to settle back into a normal monthly routine and allow me to move forward on all the great things coming in April. I know that April seems a long way off, but trust me, the wait will be well worth it! We are adding some amazing monthly exclusives to our main kit each month, we will be starting our Project Life add on and the special Project Art kit. Oh, and we even have some brand new Cocoa Daisy products that we will be unveiling in April too! The Bunker has been “a-buzzing” let me tell you!   Make sure to check back with us over the coming weeks for more information. With all of these exciting things coming up you won’t want to miss out, so if you are not a subscriber remember we are still running our special 3 month subscription promotion – but it ends March 1st! You can find all the info on that here. As many of you know my Niece, Mary does a lot of work for Cocoa Daisy, but with graduation, upcoming summer events and college all right around the corner she is not going to be able to help as much as she has in the past. This makes me sad because she is an absolute burst of sunshine whenever she is here and to say that I am proud of her is an understatement. I will miss hearing her singing out loud to her iPod from the other room.   With Mary ready to move forward into the big world it leaves...
Sneak a peek at “Sketchbook”

Sneak a peek at “Sketchbook”

For March, we’ve put together an art-inspired kit we call Sketchbook. The trusty place artists go to commit their ideas to paper before they start working on the canvas is now a kit full of happy spring colors, textures, and shapes. Just like the small inspiration pieces that can fill an artist’s note book, we have gathered bits and pieces to give you plenty of inspiration as you create your masterpieces. And because we’ve been selling out a little quicker than we expected, we’ve increased availability this month. We listened!   **For our Canadian customers, the postage to Canada drastically increased recently so we’ve had to increase our shipping charges as well. Rates to Canada will now be $13.50 Flat Rate. Kits and adds on go on sale to subscribers February 28th at 9 PM EST. February is a short month, so to give our subscribers a bit more time, we’ve move back our general public purchase date to 2nd of March at 12 midnight. Not a subscriber? It’s easy to join and you won’t ever miss out on the main kit. The past few months we’ve been selling out within hours of going on sale to our subscribers.

Reveal morning sneaks and inspiration

Reveal morning sneaks and inspiration

Can you believe it’s already time for January 2013 Reveal? Are you ready to celebrate the New Year in an elegant way? Join the Cocoa Daisy Ladies as we take a step into one of our favorite books Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. Close your eyes and imagine attending a New Year’s Eve Party at Pemberley. The ladies and gents are all dressed up in creams and whites mixed with blues and greys. There are bits of fuchsia and yellows to brighten up the room as we dance the night away. Are you smiling yet? We thought you would be! This morning we’d like to share some of the amazing layouts our Design Team created highlighting this month’s add ons Mr.Darcy, Elizabeth, and Netherfield Park. Enjoy! Mr. Darcy Mandy used the Mr. Darcy Add on to create her “every girl dreams…” layout. Don’t you love how Mandy used the colors of this kit with the enlarged black and white photo of her daughter feeding her pony? And the stitching around the grey thickers to give them that added pop of color what a great idea! Elizabeth Using the Elizabeth Addon Mandy Kay created this amazing layout “Crazy For You” about her husband, proving that a kit with a feminine palette can be used to create a masculine layout. Not sure about those block letters? Here’s a tip cut around the letters like Mandy Kay did with the FOR YOU in her title and you’ll get a totally different look. Netherfield Park Alissa created this gorgeous “Baby Uggs” layout using the Netherfield Park Pattern Paper Addon. Look at all those...
Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

I wanted to share with you one of my favorite Christmas decorations, a little Nativity scene that Zach made for me last Christmas. To me it’s so much more than just a clay Nativity, I see two little hands that worked hard to create a special gift just for me, I see something that is beautiful and precious in its imperfection and it reminds me of how even in our imperfection God sees a precious beauty and sent us a very special gift. From the Boys and I, and all of us here at Cocoa Daisy, we wish you a wonderful and blessed Merry Christmas. We hope you are able to spend some time  today with those you love and that your hearts are full of peace of...

Need a little inspirations after the holidays? We know of just the thing. And it’s FREE!!!!We’re so happy to be sponsoring Creative Jumpstart Summit 2013 by former DT member Nat Kalbach and friends.

Welcome to our two new Design Team members!

We are so happy to share this news! We’ve added a couple of new members to our Design Team and we’d like to share them with you now.   We are thrilled to have Mandie Pierce on the team. Mandie is someone I’ve long admired, she was one of the first bookmarked layouts I started collecting at another kit club. She has a fun and quirky style and I was over the moon when Christine suggested we ask her to be on the team. Her equally excited response to our invitation made me love her even more! Welcome to the team Mandie!   Hi!  I’m Mandie Pierce.  I am a thirty something stay at home mama and am married to my high school sweetheart.  We have 3 kiddos: Claire, Noah and Collin.  My husband is in the Air Force, and we are currently stationed in Northern California.  We’ve been here for over 3 years now; our time to move is overdue!  We met and married in the Atlanta area and have lived in San Antonio, Anchorage, Little Rock and now the Sacramento area.  (Who knows where next!)  I’ve been scrapbooking since our oldest was a baby; so, about 13 years now. We won’t discuss the sticker sneezes or hand drawn thought bubbles those books contain.  HA!  I would describe my scrappy style as eclectic.  Sometimes I like to make a clean and simple layout.  Sometimes I like to layer it on.  I’m always always drawn to bold, bright colors.   When I’m not acting as chauffer, chef, laundry maid, homework master for my family, you can find me scrapping (obviously! lol),...
Tales from the Bunker: December edition

Tales from the Bunker: December edition

We are in full December rush mode here in the bunker, it seems like Christmas and New Years are sneaking up awfully fast this year! December’s kit has shipped out, we have started putting January together and the ideas for the February kit are well under way, and we have thoughts of CHA dancing in our heads. I am excited about some fun, new little bits and pieces that we are adding to the packages your kit and stamps come in, be looking for those in your January kits. We are always looking for ways to make your kits feel even more special and we think you will like the changes we have made. Of course in the midst of our normal Cocoa Daisy craziness we have found some time to add a little Holiday cheer to the house, Zach has been my little outdoor light coordinator and official tree trimmer while Nate has been very helpful in making sure I know what is on their Christmas lists I haven’t been able to make Christmas cards this year but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to make some gift tags with Jody’s Antler stamp: Those antlers are perfect with the woodgrain paper! The wood grain paper is from Target just in case you are wondering I hope that you are taking some time through this busy month to pause and enjoy the little moments and traditions that make the Holidays so special....
