Signature T

Hi all, I hope everyone is ready for Christmas. I've purchased all of my presents, wrapped about 90% of them and only lack stocking stuffers. But enough about me, today I'm going to show you layouts I made with a kit by Pixel Me That Design called Signature T. It is a great staple kit for your stash. It is feminine, but the color scheme is neutral enough that is can be used for almost any type of layout.

My first layout is of Tina, Samuel and Angela at the wedding. I love the green in this kit because it works with so many different types of photos. I did this layout for a template challenge.

Next up is Zoey, she was sitting beside me on the couch on the back porch and I started playing with her hair. Sharla started snapping photos. I think she looks cute, but by the look on her face she wasn't impressed.

This kit is just perfect for so many things, so make sure you head over to Stuff to Scrap and pick up Signature T soon. You will find lots of uses for it.

Warm Winter Wishes & A Freebie

Happy Monday all, do you know it is only 5 days until Christmas...that means 4 shopping days left. If you're trying to decide what to buy me, I'll take gift cards (hehehe), just kidding. Today I'm going to show you layouts I made with a new kit by Scraps by Andrea called Warm Winter Wishes and it is perfect for you winter photos. A great mix of blues and browns, so you can do your snow and hot chocolate photos.

My first layout is some ducks in the snow. I got these photo last winter during one of our many snow days. The really didn't seem to be phased by the cold. The kit is great because it has a nice mix of elements including flowers, snow flakes, buttons and ribbons, all which make for great clustering.

My second layout is Tucker in the snow. He was running as fast as he could to get out of the snow. It was very cold on his woohoo, and he wasn't liking that at all. He had no problem looking at it from the porch, but he didn't want to be in it.

Now for your freebie, it is a brag book page. I think all of Andrea's CTs did brag book pages, so make sure you get them all. The image is linked so just click and download. And as always, I love to hear from my fellow scrappers, so feel free leave comments.

And make sure you head over to Stuff to Scrap and pick up Warm Winter Wishes soon, you will definitely find it a great addition to your stash. And I'll be back soon to show you more.

Swanky Christmas & A Freebie

Christmas is less than a week away...are you ready??? We've got all the presents bought, now I've got to get busy wrapping them. Still have to get some things for the stockings, but other than that, I'm done. Yea me. Today I'm going to show you a layout I made with Digi-designs by Nicole's newest kit called Swanky Christmas. It is a kit with non-traditional colors, and it is just too cute!!!

I did a layout of Tom and Callie. We were waiting on Cole and as always they were good for one photo and naughty for the other. Their funny faces really make me smile. When I saw the naughty and nice tags I immediately thought of these photos.

Make sure you head over to Stuff to Scrap and pick up Swanky Christmas and then head over to Nicole's blog and see what my other CT member did for freebies. Also just so you know Nicole is having a sale starting on Wednesday, see the linked flier below.

I created a freebie for you with the kit as well. I loved the colors in this kit. They are just so fun. The image is linked, so just click on it and download. And as always feel free to leave a comment, I love hearing from my fellow scrappers.

I'll be back later with more stuff to show you.

Very Merry & a Freebie

I hope everyone is having a Very Merry December. For me it has been tough, we had to put Sharla in the hospital and even though it was only for one night, it was very stressful for me and her. But she is doing better and that is all that counts. Today I'm here to show you layouts I made with a fun new kit by Scraps by Andrea called Very Merry and it has a matching Very Merry Cardstock. I love this fun whimsical kit and enjoyed using it. Plus at the end will be a freebie for you.

First up is Callie from this year. She is a lucky little girl, her boss gave her an iPad for Christmas. I want one really badly and so she better hide hers. I love the sleigh in the kit and thought it looked so cute full of presents.

Next up is Cole from last Christmas with his favorite present...ok maybe not his favorite, but one that made him laugh. We get him funny boxers every year and I couldn't resist the Homer ones. He refused to model them, because he knew we would take pictures, he is getting smarter. I love the Merry & Bright word art that is part of the kit and just had to use it.

I loved the word art so much that I made it part of my freebie to you. I did the frame cluster off of the last page as my freebie. I hope you like it and can find a use for it. The image is linked, so simply click on it and download. Feel free to leave comments, I always love hearing from my fellow scrappers.

Make sure you head over to Stuff to Scrap and pick up Very Merry and Very Merry Cardstock soon. You should also check out Andrea's Blog to see what goodies my other CTs have created.

Winter Chills and a Freebie

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas everywhere I go...ok maybe not so much here in Texas, but there is definitely a sense of winter. Today I'm going to show you a layout I made using Digi-designs by Nicole's newest kit called Winter Chills and give you a freebie made with that kit as well.

Here in Texas we don't normally get a lot of snow, we do get ice normally once or twice a year, but 2009/2010 was very different we got snow on several occasions. It was quite beautiful, but very cold. We tried to get the dogs to go out in it to play, but they weren't liking it much. Sharla walked out into the yard and would call them, and they would run to her and then turn and run back to the porch. I love the blues in this kit, I think they are great with snow photos.

I took the cluster from this layout and save it as a freebie for you. I know several others on Nicole's team have created freebies as well, so make sure you check out her blog to pick them up as well. The image is linked so simply click and download, and as always feel free to leave love.

I'll be back later with more to show you, but in the mean time head over to Stuff to Scrap and pick up Winter Chills because it is on sale for this week!!!!

Home for the Holidays

So have you finished your Christmas shopping. I'm not done, but I have something for Callie, Cole, and Mecca, so I'm moving along. Tom wants a gift card to Home Depot, and Mom gave me a list yesterday, so I'm moving along. Do you have anything special on your wish list...I'm trying to convince my Mom to buy me an iPad...a girl can dream. Well today I am going to show you layouts I made with this month's mega collab at Stuff to Scrap called Home For The Holidays. It is just packed full of great stuff and I love the color scheme!

My first layout is Sharla and Callie, Christmas morning two years ago. It's funny how adult Callie is until Christmas morning and then she was a kid all over again. But I think we are all a little like that. I really love all the flowers in this kit.

My second layout is Cooper in a Santa hat, ok maybe it is more of an elf hat, but I think he looks very very cute. He didn't care for it much, but he tolerated it. I love the greenery in this kit, as well as all the ornaments.

This is a wonderful kit so you should head over to the Stuff To Scrap store and pick up Home For The Holidays really soon. Then you can scrap all your wonderful holiday photos.

A Time for Thanks/Holly Jolly and a Freebie

Ok, I've really messed up and I'm the first one to admit it. Andrea of Scraps by Andrea had a cool kit a couple of weeks ago called Holly Jolly Christmas and it was a collab with Cristin's Creations. It was free the first week and is now in the store. I should have told ya'll about it earlier, but somehow I just forgot to blog about it (my bad). She also has a new kit out today call A Time for Thanks, so I'm going to show you the layouts I did for both as well as give you a freebie from the new kit.

I'll start with my Holly Jolly layouts, the first is Tom, Mecca, Callie and Cole opening presents last Christmas. I really love the colors of this kit, they just go with everything.

Next up is Tom and Mecca's Christmas tree from last year. I think it looked very elegant and I just had to snap of couple of photos of it. I really had fun using all the flowers and ornaments in the kit.

Now for more recent photos. This one is of Sharla just as she was sitting down at the table on Thanksgiving (yes this year). I really love the papers in this kit, they range from simple to elegant, so you can do so much with them.

Next up is a layout of Aunt Jean, ok she isn't really my Aunt, but she was my babysitter when I was a kid and that's what we called her, and it stuck. She had her 82nd birthday a couple of weeks ago and her granddaughters gave her a little surprise party. It was lots of fun and I know she had a great time.

And now for your freebie. I used the cluster from the last layout. I hope you enjoy and find a good use for it. As always, feel free to leave love. The image is linked so just click and download.

Make sure you head over to Stuff to Scrap and pick up Holly Jolly Christmas and Christin’s Part as well as A Time for Thanks. And hopefully I'll be back tomorrow of Sunday with more layouts to show you!!!
