Everybody Fights Sometimes

No I'm not here today to tell you about the people I've been fighting with. If you know me, you know I'm the sweetest, kindest, gentlest person around and I would never fight with anyone...oops had to jump out of the way of the lightening that was trying to strike me (hehehe). No I'm here to show you a new kit by North Meets South Studios (aka Trixie Scraps Designs and Designs by Connie Prince). The kit is called Everybody Fights Sometimes and is perfect for all of your not so happy photos as well as your happy ones. The colors of the kit are bright and cheery, but it is packed with great themed word art. Just look at the linked preview to get a sense of the fun of it.

When deciding what to scrap I came across a photo of mom that was definitely grumpy to say the least. I'm not sure what she was frowning about, but some was rubbing her wrong. I loved the word art in this kit and especially the one I got to use on this layout (because it is so true).

Make sure you head over to Trixie's store and pick up Everybody Fights Sometimes for your stash. I know you will find lots of great uses for it.

Remembering You

Happy Sunday all, I hope you're having a great day. Today I'm going to show you layouts I made with Trixie Scraps Designs' newest pieces called Remembering You. It is her GGI...Gotta Grab It pieces at Gotta Pixel this month. That means each piece is only $1 until the 17th. And I love this months pieces. She has elements, papers, PLAID papers (which are WONDERFUL), cardstocks, journaling bits and two template packs. To say I was in heaven when I saw all of these is putting it mildly. Here is a preview of what the kit will look like when it is all together (right now it is in papers/elements).

I did two layouts because there were so many pieces. On this one I used the papers, elements, journaling bits and collage collector templates. Since it is a remembering kit, I did photos of the kids with daddy. I still miss him and I'm sure they do too.

For my second layout I went with a different theme. This kit is so versatile it will work for all kinds of layouts. I used photos of Angela in her dance costume, because I loved the blues/greens/browns with her cream tutu. I used the papers, elements, plaid/gingham papers, cardstocks and layer lovers templates for this one.

Make sure you head over to Gotta Pixel and get all the pieces to Trixie's Remembering You Collection while they are on sale!!! I know you will find lots of uses for them.

Change Your Fate

Happy Friday all, I hope you're having a wonderful week. Today I'm going to show you a layout I made using a new collab by Trixie Scraps Desings and Britt-ish Designs called Change Your Fate. It is a wonderful kit that was inspired by the new Disney movie Brave. I love this kit, great colors, wonderful elements and my latest obsession, plaid paper!!!! The linked preview below shows how packed it is with great stuff.

When looking through the kit there was a word art that simply said "It's Fate" and when I saw that I knew what I wanted to scrap. That has been Sharla's response to everything that has happened over the last year. And for those friends and family following the blog, she is doing GREAT. I also used July Templatetopia by North Meets South Studios on this layout. And I have to say, I love the all the elements in this kit, but the little copper coins just make me smile. Yes I know I'm crazy.
This kit can be used for all kinds of layouts, so make sure you pick up Change Your Fate really soon. And if you go to Trixie Blog you will find the absolute cutest cardstock freebie and then you can go to Britt's Blog and get a freebie add-on as well. Happy scrapping all!!!!!

Two New Kits

Happy Monday all, today I'm going to show you some layouts I made using kits by Trixie Scraps Designs. She has two, yep two new releases today. The first is call Summer On The Boardwalk and is exclusively at Pickleberrypop for her Designer Spotlight there. It is a fun kit perfect for your trips to the boardwalk or carnival. Just look at the linked preview below.

I used the kit and the matching cardstock and sunburst papers to create this layout. It features my friend Tina at a local carnival. She was having some fun posing for Sharla and I.

Also releasing today is Get the Party Started which is Trixie's GAB (Grab-A-Byte) collection at Scrapbook Bytes. It is a fun girly party kit. I love the colors and I know I'll use it lots and lots in the future. The preview below is what the kit will look like when it is combined, but for now you can buy the pieces for the wonderfully low price of $1 each.

I just have to use Ariella's birthday photos, the black cake icing matched the paper so well, I couldn't resist. And I love love love all the flowers!!!! But then Trixie always does great flowers (which is just one of the reasons I love working for her)!!!

So make sure you head over to her stores and pick up Summer On The Boardwalk and Get the Party Started soon, you will love playing with them!!!!
