Remember - A Poppy Kit

Happy Tuesday all, I hope you've had a wonderful January, can you believe today is the last day? Time is just flying past. Today I'm going to show you layouts I made with a great kit called Remember – A Poppy Kit by Seal Scraps. It is a wonderful kit with great colors and elements. I really had fun using it. My first layout has a picture of my grandmother on it. It was taken years ago, and I really wish I had more pictures of her. I love the elements in this kit, lots of great flowers which is always fun.

My second layout is Sharla when she was very young. Mom used VO5 to make her hair show up in the photo and to give her a curl...just like daddy used to do in his hair. I love the colors in this kit, red with touches of blue, tan and black!!!

I created a freebie from the cluster on the first layout and if you want it head over to the Stuff to Scrap Inspiration Blog. And the kit is on sale for 50% this week only, so make sure you head over to Stuff to Scrap and pick up Remember – A Poppy Kit.

Keep The Faith

Happy Thursday all, hope you're having a wonderful week. It has been busy, but I've gotten to scrap a couple of pages. Today I'm going to show you pages I created using a kit by Scrappin' Serenity called Keep The Faith. I really loved this kit at first sight, because of the color combination. There is just something about grey, green, yellow and brown that really attracts me, and the kit has great elements too. 

My first layout is Callie on Thanksgiving Day. We were at the table and she posed for one of the few photos taken that day. Sharla and I both took cameras, but I think we were still in recovery mode from her and mom being in the hospital. As always Callie makes a beautiful subject, and I really love all the flowers in the kit.

Next up is Ariella and to be honest I'm not sure when I took this photo. It was on my SD card and I thought it was cute. I know when she gets older she won't appreciate having chubby cheeks, but they sure are cute!!!!

Now if you liked the frame and cluster in the second layout you should head over to the Stuff to Scrap Inspiration Blog because I created a freebie from it and it is available there. And once you're done getting the freebie, head over to the store and pick up Keep The Faith.

Saturday, January 7, 2012


Happy Saturday all, I hope you are enjoying 2012. It has been an exciting year and it is only day 7. Mom got to come home from the hospital yesterday, but now is wearing oxygen. We're hoping she is better about wearing than daddy was, because he would never wear his. Sharla has started physical therapy and is hoping to return to work soon. She is walking quite well with the walker, and looking forward to walking without it. But that is not what I came here today to talk to show you. I got to work with a wonderful kit by Just So Scrappy called Abby and I want to show you the layouts I made. It is a great kit packed with lots of elements, flowers, strings, ribbons, and lots more. But what drew me to it was the wonderful warm colors.

My first layout is about Sharla on the day she got her new "foot". I did it for the Scrap What challenge in the Stuff to Scrap forum, which is about feet this month. I just couldn't resist, plus I took lots of pictures that day because I want to document her wonderful progress. I love the flowers in this kit, there are several different types and each comes in several colors. And the alphas are great too.

My next layout I did for the Scraplift challenge, and I used photos of Angela in her dance costume. I love this series of photos, because she was having fun showing us her dance moves. I don't do blended photos too often, but I think this one turned our really well.

Make sure you head over to the Stuff to Scrap store and pick up Abby real soon, you will find it a great addition to your stash.

Believe and a Freebie

Happy New Year everyone, I hope you've had a blessed year so far. It has been a little rocky for us, but we are handling it. Mom's defibrillator went off on Tuesday so she is currently in the hospital , but feeling much better. I hope she is coming home soon (like today). Sharla starts her first physical therapy with her new leg today, so she's off and running....ok off and walking slowly, but we'll take it. But that is not what I came to talk about today. I'm going to show you a layout I created with a new kit by Scraps by Andrea called Believe. A wonderful Christmas kit filled with rich colors and cool elements. I love that is has Christmas things, winter things and just general elements so it can be used for all kinds of layouts.

 My layout features Sharla on opening one of her Christmas presents. When going through the ads for Black Friday she mentioned a mini cupcake maker, but we didn't get out and she totally forgot about it. I saw one on Christmas Eve when I was getting some last minute supplies and couldn't resist. I told her I bought something she asked for, but she kept saying she didn't ask for anything. That was up until she opened it. Score one for me, well if she ever cooks me cupcakes with it...hehehe.

I took the cluster from the layout and created a freebie for you. The preview is linked, so simply click on it to download. Feel free to leave a comment.

I am sorry but this freebie has been removed. There is some question about the copyright on it and I don't want to mess with it.
Make sure you head over to Stuff to Scrap and pick up Believe soon, it will be a great addition to your stash. You should also check out Andrea's Blog for other freebies.
