Play Soccer & Freebie

Happy Monday all, I hope you've had a great start to your week. Today I'm going to show you a layout I created with a new kit by Digi-designs by Nicole called Play Soccer. It's basically your one stop kit for scrapping both your son and daughter who play soccer. And the non-themed soccer elements and these fun colors make it friendly for scrapping other things too. My layout is little Ms. Callie kicking around a soccer ball. I love that her top is almost as big as she is. I love the mix of soccer elements and flowers, but ya'll know me. I love flowers.
I took the cluster and put it on a frame for your freebie. Yes is it more girlie, but hey I like it....hehehe. The preview is linked, so simply click to download. And as always feel free to leave a comment.
Now make sure you head over to Stuff to Scrap and pick up Play Soccer, and if you do it this week you'll get 30% off.

Slumber Party

Happy Happy Thursday all, today the high is only supposed to be in the 70s and it rained for just a little bit, man that makes me smile. After a long summer of 100+ temps, I am so ready for Fall. But enough about me, today I am here to show you a layout I made with a wonderful new kit by JennCK Designs called Slumber Party. It is the girl's match to Sleep Over and a wonderful kit. The colors are pinks and yellows, and it is packed full of flowers and you know I love me some flowers. She has even created an add-on Slumber Party Paper Flowers that you can get for free with the purchase of the kit if you buy before October 15th (so hurry!!!!).

The layout I did also uses her Modern Templates Vol. 1 and is something you don't see very often here. Yes it is a layout that actually has a picture of me on it (hehehe). Well one photo is me and one is Callie and we're wearing her dress-up clothes. Well I'm wearing the veil and fur wrap, and she is wearing the veil and white dress. She loved to dress up even as a little girl and still loves it today!!!!
So make sure you head over to Scrapbook Bytes and pick up Slumber Party before October 15th so you can get the paper flowers for free!!!!!

I love kits that are packed with flowers and this kit is just full of them. And it has wonderful colors to book. Just look at the linked preview below to see it's goodness.

I love doing challenges, they really help me get my scrap on (hehehe). I love the colors in this kit, purple is my favorite color and mixed with the greens, is just wonderful
My second layout is Tina and Ariella, aren't they cute!!!! I got a little cluster happy, but then I love to cluster. I did this layout for a Word of the Week challenge. And I loved using the word "wonderful". I also really love the textures on the papers in this kit.

Grillin' It

Happy Wednesday all, I hope you're having a wonderful week. Today I am going to show you some layouts I created with a kit by HD Creations called Grillin’ It. It is a bright cheerful kit perfect for scrapping your bbq photos and much more.
My first layout is mom and dad taken years ago after a bbq. I love the hat and apron daddy is wearing (hehehe). I also love the flag banner in the kit and just had to use it.

My second layout I wanted to show how versatile the kit was so I didn't do a bbq page at all. I took one of the photos I took of Angela in her dance costume. I really love the dark brown against the bright colors. I think it makes the photo really pop.

That is it for now, but make sure you head over to the Stuff to Scrap store and pick up Grillin’ It soon.

Sleepover + More

Happy Monday all, today I'm going to show you quite a bit.  I have a brand new kit by JennCK Designs called "Sleepover", plus she has three new template packs and I have created a layout with one of her older kits called Dahlia.  So sit back and get ready to see some goodies.  Sleepover is available this week at Scrapbook Bytes as part of their Grab a Byte, which means each piece is only $1 and the template packs are on sale as well.
First up is Daddy and Cole, also known as Buddies. They were a pair, I'm not sure who had more fun when they were together. And I see a lot of Daddy in Cole, he definitely got his sense of humor. I used the Modern Templates Vol. 2 for this layout.

My second layout is Callie and her bestie Watson. She is nuts about that dog, it must run in the family. I used a template from Clean Lines Vol. 2 for this layout. I love the colors of the Sleepover kit, they go with so many things.

My last layout using Sleepover is Sharla and her camera. She hates that I take pictures of her taking pictures, but it always makes me smile. So of course I continue to do it. I used a template from Paper Inspired Vol. 2 for this layout.

I also got to use one of Jenn's older kits called Dahlia and I love the colors of this kit. Maybe because it is just packed with pretty flowers. I used a photo of Ariella because I thought she would look good against the pinks.

Make sure you head over to Scrapbook Bytes and pick up Sleepover, Dahlia, Paper Inspired Vol. 2, Clean Lines Vol. 2 and Modern Templates Vol. 2, they will be great additions to your stash.

Deep Blue Sea

Happy Thursday all, I hope you're having a wonderful week. I know I'm enjoying the cooler weather!!!!! Today I am going to show you some layouts I created with a new kit by Digital Scrap Fun called Deep Blue Sea a great kit perfect for your aquarium and/or fishing photos, plus a lot more. It is a great mix of color and elements that are fun and versatile. My first layout is Callie and Daddy on her first fishing trip in the ocean. It was one of those charter things and she had a great time. We didn't catch a lot of fish, but I think it was more just getting out on the water that made her happy. That and being with Papa. I love the mix of colors in this kit because they really make the photos pop.
My second layout I wanted to show that the kit could be used for other things, so I did a non fish layout. It is Callie again, and I think she is riding a dolphin, but I can't be sure. I love kits that put in flowers, button, etc. so you can use them for more than just themed layouts.
Deep Blue Sea is a great kit and a perfect addition to your scrapping stash, so head over to Stuff to Scrap and pick it up soon.

Happy Labor Day everyone, I hope you had a wonderful day of non labor. I know I did!!! I spent the morning on the back porch enjoying a wonderful cool morning, and I'm so ready for fall!!!! It was so much fun, just enjoying the weather!!!! But enough about me, today I'm here to show you a layout I made with a new kit by JennCK Designs called Veggielicious. It is a wonderful kit that is packed full of cute elements and great papers. I love the greens in this kit, they are just the perfect shades. I also used another one of her new template packs called Paper Inspired Vol. 1.

The photos I used are some I took earlier this summer. Sharla and I had been to the local farmers market and picked up some great veggies and we thought it would be fun to photograph them. But if you know me, you know I couldn't resist playing a little. I had a pass the pigs game on the table so I took the pigs out and began to pose them with the veggies. I am easily amused.

Make sure you head over to Scrapbook Bytes and pick up Veggielicious and Paper Inspired Vol. 1 soon, they will be wonderful additions to your scrapping stash.

Happy Friday all, I'm so very excited today because I've been given the opportunity to be on the creative team for JennCK Designs. I love her kits and her templates, so it is going to so much fun!!!!!! I just joined yesterday and I already have somethings to show you. She released two new kits and three template packs today, yeah!!!! In this post I've worked with her new kit called Fruitilicious and two different template packs, Modern Templates Vol. 1 and Clean Lines Vol. 1. My first layout is of my three sweeties, and I used the Modern Templates. I really love the colors in the kit and thought they would look good against b/w photos. And I love a kit that has a mix of elements so you can do any type of layout with it.
My second layout is Angela in one of her dance costumes. I also used the Clean Lines templates. I love clean lines and I love this set of templates. I flipped this one, so the photos and paper went horizontally on the page instead of vertically. And don't you just love that daisy paper!!!!
Make sure you head over to Scrapbook Bytes and pick up Fruitilicious, Modern Templates Vol. 1 and Clean Lines Vol. 1 soon. I hope to back tomorrow or Sunday with layouts from her other new releases.

Amusement Park Fun

Happy Thursday all, I hope everyone is preparing for a wonderful weekend, a nice long one at that!!! Well if you're in the US. I know I hope to do lots of things this weekend, nap, watch TV, scrap, nap, read, nap, shop, nap...are you catching on to my theme for the weekend. Well enough of that, today I'm going to show you a couple of layouts I made with Scraps by Andrea's September BAKs (build a kit). They are called Amusement Park Fun Patterned Papers, Amusement Park Fun Cardstock, and Amusement Park Fun Elements and they are so much fun. Perfect for scrapping your photos from the amusement park, fair or carnival. I love the colors and Andrea did a great job with all the elements. My layouts both use photos I took last year at a local carnival. Sharla and I went to take photos, just to play with our cameras, and had a really cool time. I loved capturing the motion on the ferris wheel in the first layout. I hope a carnival comes back soon because I want to play some more.
My second layout was photos I took of the teapot ride. It was waiting for people to get on it and I thought it looked pretty. And when I saw Andrea's teapot element I remember these photos. Next time I'll have to see if I can get Sharla on the ride (hehehehe).
So head over to the Stuff to Scrap store and pick up these pieces as soon as possible. If you buy all three together you get 50% off, how cool is that!!!!
