Template Temptation: Vol. 11

Happy Tuesday all, today I'm going to show you layouts I made with Digi-designs by Nicole's newest set of templates called Template Temptation: Vol. 11. They are a great mix of templates that are a great way to jump start your scrapping.

My first layout is Callie and Cole being silly after his graduation. I know I still can't believe he has graduated High School. He was just a baby yesterday, I swear!!!! I love the simplicity of this template, and yet it still makes a great layout.
My next layout features one Zoey Le'Rue otherwise known as Zoey Girl or Stinky Butt, depending on my mood. She ignores me when I call her Stinky, and I don't know why. She is such a spoiled brat.

Make sure you head over to Stuff to Scrap and pick up Template Temptation: Vol. 11 today (it is on sale for 30% off).

Sea Life & A Freebie

Happy Wednesday all, I hope you're having a wonderful June. I don't want to wish time away, but I'm ready for fall. With the rain we've had the last couple of days, it is super muggy outside, which is no fun!!! But the good thing is I have more time inside to scrap!!!! Yeah me. And let's just say that Andrea of Scraps by Andrea has been very very busy this month. Part of it is because she is the designer of the month at Stuff to Scrap, and what that means to you is that everything in her store is 50% off this month wooohooo!!! Today she is releasing a new kit called Sea Life and it is wonderful. Great for you photos from the aquarium and so much more. She has packed this kit with so much goodness it isn't even funny!!!!

My first layout I did to show you how versatile the kit is. When I saw all the wonderful flowers I knew I wanted to do a layout with them. I used photos I took of Callie during Memorial Day weekend. She was in a feisty mood and was having a grand time irritating her brother.

My second layout I used some photos Sharla took several years ago when we visited the Dallas World Aquarium. We're going to have to go back soon. I love the "Dory" fishes.

I made the cluster from the first layout into a freebie for you. I hope you can find some use for it. Simply click on the preview and download and as always feel free to leave a comment.

Make sure you head over to Stuff to Scrap and pick up Sea Life soon while it is on sale for 50% off. Also Andrea has created a couple of add-ons to her kit It's About Time called It's About Time Again and It's About Time Again Cardstock and they are perfect for Father's Day photos. And they are on sale as well!!!!!

How My Garden Grows & A Freebie

Happy Tuesday all, I hope those of you in the DFW area survived the storms last night.  We lost a tree, it snapped in half, but other than that no major damage.  They say we might get more today, which we need, but I would really like it to come in a nice slow rain, rather than in severe storms.  But enough about that, I'm posting today to show you a layout I made with a new kit by Digi-designs by Nicole called How My Garden Grows Bundle. It is a great kit for scrapping your garden photos.  And it is on sale this week, 30% off.

The photo I used was Callie in a corn field.  The photo was taken in North Carolina and she was quite thrilled with the corn that was taller than she was.  I really love the colors in this kit, they are bright and can be used for so many things.

I also created a freebie for you using the kit. I hope you find a good use for it. Simply click on the preview and download it. Feel free to leave a comment, I always love hearing from ya'll.

Make sure you head over to Stuff to Scrap and pick up How My Garden Grows Bundle, and do it this week while it is on sale!!

Happy Thursday morning all, I know two post in two days. Well don't think I'm doing better, I'm actually doing the posts at the same time, just scheduling them to post at different times. Hopefully I'll get on a better schedule soon. But for now I want to show you layouts I made with a wonderful kit called Meadowlark by Ivory Keys Digital Dreams. This kit is soft and elegant, but still has a deep richness about it as well. The colors are wonderful and the elements are great, and it lots of flowers!!!

My first layout is of Sharla and Tucker. I needed photos for something else and so she sat on the futon with her Ipad for me to take the photos over her shoulder. But Tucker just had to get up next to her and do a little snuggling and kissing. I really love the range of colors in this kit.
My second layout is my friend Tina, her sister and their dad. Sharla and I took some photos of them a couple of years ago, and I love this one. The flowers in this kit just beg to be clusters and you know me, I can't resist.
This kit will be the prefect addition to your stash. It works for boy or girl and is packed with great elements. So head over to Stuff to Scrap and pick up Meadowlark soon.

Bouncing Beach Balls

Happy Wednesday all, I hope everyone is enjoying their summer.  Maybe you've been to the beach and gotten lots of great photos.  Well then I have the perfect new kit for you from Scraps by Andrea, and it is call Bouncing Beach Balls. Bright colors, great elements, perfect for those beach photos!!!

My first layout is Cole at the beach at Nag's Head. He attempted boogie boarding and then just settled on playing in the sand. I love the sand splat in this kit, and well as cute beach ball.
My second layout is Callie on the same trip, but she is out in the waves (although it was the end of summer, so it was pretty cold). The bright colors in this kit just scream sunshine to me, and I love the stitched sun!!!
So head over to Stuff to Scrap and pick up Bouncing Beach Balls soon, because for the month of June Andrea's store is on sale for 50% off, and you can't beat that deal!!!!

Down and Dirty

Hi all, happy Sunday to you. I hope everyone is enjoying their June. It has been a busy month for me, but hopefully the second half will be slower. Today I'm going to show you layouts I created using Design by Ashlee's Down and Dirty Paper and Down and Dirty Elements. I love the color combination on these, they are perfect for boys, but so much more.

My first layout is Cole on his graduation day...yes that is right he graduated high school. I don't know where the time went, just yesterday he was a little kid!!!! He has grown into a fine young man!!!
My second layout is Sharla and her new camera. We have been wanting a dslr for some time, and finally broke down and got one. I think she took 3000 pictures in the first week. Now not all of them were good photos, but she is having a great time with it.
So you can see it is a great combination of kits, so make sure you head over to the Stuff to Scrap store and pick up Down and Dirty Paper and Down and Dirty Elements soon.
