Just Fallin'

Happy Sunday all, with everything going on I am definitely behind, but trying to get caught up as fast as possible. Today I am going to show you layouts made with a great new kit by Flower Scraps called Just Fallin’. It is perfect for your fall photos, and will work for both boys and girls. My first layout I did for the font challenge at STS and I really liked the font called Lily Page. I really like the color concept of blue, green and orange, because the photos really pop with it. And such great papers in this kit!!!!! The photo is Zoey at the pumpkin patch.
My second layout I used more of the greens and oranges and I really love the combination. I also love the shiny elements like the copper brad and swirl, I think they look great on the page. And the lattice green paper is my new favorite. The photo is Callie at her birthday a couple of years ago.
I also created a freebie, and to get it you simply have to go to the Stuff to Scrap Inspiration Blog and download it. When you are done, head to the Stuff to Scrap store and pick up Just Fallin’ too.

A Passonate Summer

Hello all, I'm here today to show you layouts I made with a kit by Queen Bee Scraps called "A Passionate Summer". I love the colors in this kit and it is packed with great elements. It is an elegant kit, that will be usable for so many things.

My first layout is Cole through the years. I look at him now and just can't believe he is so grown-up, he should still be about 6 years old. He was such a fun kid, and that playfulness is still there, thank goodness. It is just packed in a much larger body. I did this layout for the template challenge at Stuff to Scrap.

My second layout is Angela, posing for photos in her dance costume. She is growing into such a big girl, it seems like all the kids in my life are growing up way to fast. It means I'm getting old. I did this layout for the recipe challenge.

I created a freebie and you can pick it up at the Stuff to Scrap Inspiration Blog. So head over and pick up the freebie and then go to the Stuff to Scrap Store and pick up A Passionate Summer.

Mystery Machine & Freebie

Hi all, I am so behind, this should have been posted yesterday. But with Mom in the hospital, my world has been a little on edge. So far they haven't found anything, but she isn't seeming to improve either. But that is not what I came here to show you today. Scraps by Andrea has just released a new kit called Mystery Machine, which was the blog train theme at Stuff to Scrap this month. She expanded the kit and made a matching Mystery Machine Cardstock. I really loved playing with this kit because the colors were fun, and it had all kinds of goodies in it. My first layout is my three little Scoobys...yep the wonderful Tucker, Cooper and Zoey. Although they are out of sync right now, they don't like the changes to their schedule. I really love the yellow/cream color in this kit, I think it really highlights the photos well. And I loved tucking all the different elements around the layout.

My second layout is Cole when he played the Puppet Master in a play. He had such an evil laugh that it really sent shivers up my spine. Of course he would grin at me afterwards and I would just crack up. Such an odd mix is that boy. I used the more "boyish" colors for this layout and I really how the colors pop on the page.

I also created a freebie for you, and I hope you like. You should check out Andrea's blog and the links to her other CT's pages to get other freebies. Her blog is located HERE. The preview for the freebie is linked so simply click on it to download. And as always feel free to leave a comment.

Make sure you head over to Stuff to Scrap and pick up Mystery Machine and Mystery Machine Cardstock soon for you stash!!!!!

HallowScream and a Freebie

Happy Monday all, today I am going to show you a layout I made with Digi-designs by Nicole's newest kit called HallowScream. It is a great Halloween kit, just packed with fun elements and the colors are great too. I really fell in love with the purple paper, yes I do love some purple.

 My layout is my friend Phyllis a couple of years ago dressed up as Dumbledore...hope I spelled that correctly, I'm not a big Harry Potter fan. Yes I know I'm odd. I also really like the jack-a-lantern. I tried to show you several of the papers, because this kit has lots of great ones.

Now for my freebie, I made a frame cluster. I didn't have any witch pictures or I would have used it on my layout. I love the witches legs and just had to use them. The preview is linked, so simple click on it to download. And as always feel free to leave a comment, I love hearing from my fellow scrappers.

So make sure you head over to Stuff to Scrap and pick up HallowScream, it is even on sale this week for 30% off - $3.49.

Lots of Kits

Happy Saturday all, I'm going to show you lots of layouts today and all of them are done with kits by JennCK Designs. I was lucky enough to be invited to be on her team last month, and she has been really creating some great stuff. Now what I am going to show you is a mix of new kits and some re-releasing kits. She has opened new stores at Ginger Scraps, and is a guest this month at Gotta Pixel, so she is one busy lady. I love her stuff because she does lots of flowers and ya'll know me...nothing makes me happier than flowers.

First up I'm going to do the kits she is re-releasing. Fall In Love is a beautiful fall kit that is packed with goodies. I used the matching Fall In Love Templates for this layout of Tom and Mecca. The combination of green, red and tan is one of my favorites.

The next kit she is re-releasing is Delicious and it's matching Delicious Templates, which I used for this layout of Callie and Cole. They are the apples of my eye and I love the bright colors with the black and white photos, and those little apples are too cute!!!!

The last re-release is Indian Summer and Indian Summer Template. I love this kit the flower are TOTALLY awesome, and the colors just are yummy. I coveted this kit for a long time!!!! I used it in a layout with Sharla, Mom and Aunt Jean, and that blue background paper is just so pretty to me. Yes it is a solid paper, but I still love it.

Ok now on to some of her new stuff. First up is an exclusive she has at Gotta Pixel right now called Pride and Joy and if you buy the kit before 11/15 you will get the Pride and Joy Add-on for free. I used both in a layout I did of my little Zoey. I love the rich colors in this kit, and it will go with so many things.

Next is a great Halloween kit called Midnight and it is available in all of her store and if you purchase before 10/31 you will also get the Midnight Add-on for free (ain't that cool!!!). For this one I dug my photos of my little Sweet Pea Tucker. I need to get the costume out again and get some more pictures, because he is too cute in it.

And last but not least are two layouts I made with her Gotta Get It releases at Gotta Pixel (they are on sale for $1.00 per pack for the next week). The kit is called Breathe Easy and it is broken down into Breathe Easy Papers and Breathe Easy Elements and she has two template packs as well. For this first layout of Ms. Angela in a dance pose I used the Paper Inspired Templates Vol. 3 which are awesome.

And on my last layout for today I used the Breathe Easy pieces again along with Modern Style Templates Vol. 3. The photo is my Daddy, Grandmother and Uncle Clinton, three people I truly miss. And as the song says, "If heaven weren't so far away I would pack up the kids and go for the day.".
Ok that is it for today, but as you can see she has lots of great kits out there both new and old, and each of then names are linked. So if you want to see more on them just click on the names and it will take you to where you can see the kit (and buy it!!!).

4 Seasons Fall

Happy Wednesday all....well for me it is my Monday. But it was a good day, the weather has been cooler and I can feel fall in the air. Which is why I was very excited to get to work with Scrap N' Pieces new kit called 4 Seasons Fall. It is a beautiful and I do mean beautiful fall kit that is just packed with goodness. I really struggled with my layouts because I wanted to use everything!!!! And a little word to the wise...since it is new it is on sale for $2.50 from today to the 12th.

My first layout is Tom and Mecca, taken last year at Christmas, they are still a cute couple. I love that top paper, really love it. It is so elegant looking and yet rustic too. The the kit has great flowers and leaves, and all kinds of other goodies too. I love the combination of rusty orange and army green. And the title is done in the alpha from the kit.

On my second layout I pulled more of the blues and greens from the kit. Don't you just love a kit with lots of color options? The photos are Sharla and Callie and I love how they looked against these colors. And I had fun using all the different buttons and brad, I loved tucking them here and there.

I know you won't regret heading over to the Store and picking up 4 Seasons Fall, but hurry and do it this week so you can get it while it is on sale (the 5th-12th). And I even created a freebie from my first layout. If you are interested head over to the Stuff to Scrap Inspiration Blog and download it.

Lemon Meringue & a Freebie

Happy Monday all, today I'm going to show you some layouts I made with a new kit by Scraps by Andrea called Lemon Meringue. I love the colors in this kit and it is just packed with wonderful elements. It will work for all kinds of photos!!!.

 My first layout is Callie and Uncle King George, and was taken back in 2007. We recently lost him, and I love this photo of them together. I have seen lots of layouts with the side clustering and thought I would give it a try. And this kit is packed so full of great elements, that I had fun just packing them onto the layout...hehehe.

My second layout is Ariella and I love the look on her face in these pictures. Sharla took the photos and Ariella was laughing at me...I know you find that hard to believe, no one would find me funny looking, but she was just giggling and Sharla was just snapping away. I love the flowers in this kit, and I love that they work with the tan tones like in the first layout or with the grey tones like in this layout!!!!

I took the frame and part of the cluster from the first layout to create a freebie for you. The image is linked so you just have to click on it to download. And as always feel free to leave a comment.

Make sure you head over to Andrea's blog so you can get the links to other freebies and then head over to Stuff to Scrap to pick up Lemon Meringue soon, you will really enjoy using it.

Night Fall Minis and Templates

Happy Sunday all, today I'm going to show you layouts I've made with JennCk's newest minis and templates. She created these for the Ginger Scraps Buffet, so that means each piece is only $2.00!!!! She did two minis, 3 template packs and a scribble pack. The colors are wonderful and as always the templates are even better.

My first layout is Cooper, Sharla was trying to get photos of him next to a pumpkin she bought and he was not happy about it. She was disturbing him totally!!!! I used Night Fall Mini 1 and Night Fall Clean Lines Templates for this layout.

My second layout is of Daddy. I loved the little owls she had in the mini and thought this was a cute way to use them. As the holidays approach I miss him more and more!!! I used Night Fall Mini 2, Night Fall Paper Inspired Templates and Night Fall Scribbles for this one.

For my third layout I used Night Fall Mini 1 again along with Night Fall Modern Templates. The photos are of Ms. Callie on Halloween several years ago. She dressed up to give candy out at our house. It was an on the fly costume, but I think she looked very cute!!!.
Make sure you head over to Ginger Scraps and pick up Night Fall Mini 1 and Night Fall Mini 2 soon, and don't forget the great templates while you are there.
