Double Freebies!

I was introduced on Stuff To Scrap’s blog today! If you go read my interview you can pick up this freebie here.

Because I like you all so much I made another set to give away here.

You can download this set here.

Look at these two awesome pages my new CT Ányi made using these:

I will be introducing my new team very soon, stay tuned.

Special Thanks:
I would like to give a very special thank you to Pri Rocha of Pri Rocha Designs. I made a LO with my new kit using her templates from her Blocking Templates Set 1. She thought they were cute. She was nice enough to let me use them for my QP’s. How awesome is that?! By the way, if you are into templates this really is a great set to have. You get six templates and right now they are on sale for only $1.60! Thank you!

National Scrapbooking Day!!!

There are tons of fun activities scheduled at Stuff To Scrap. We are having chats and challenges all day long. The celebration has actually already begun... come check out the forum for more info.

You Could Win Some Digi-$$$

I totally forgot to mention a new game Dani started this week. Each week she is going to have a drawing and give away a $5 gift card to her TDC store! You can read all the details on her blog here. Good luck!

A Special Layout And A Designer Call

I made another layout using a different template from Manda's Template #5 (see previous post), I also used Dani's Pomme D'Amour kit. Its in Spanish. The title reads: "My Mother My Hero" and the journaling reads: "Despite everything that has happened to you in life you remain one of the kindest most noble people I know. You dedicated your whole life and being to us. I want you to know that your sacrifices were not in vain. I am the woman I am today because you are my mother. One thousand thank yous for everything. I adore you! April 26 2009".

In other news - Stuff To Scrap is having a Designer Call! See flyer for all the details.

Manda has a new Template Set!

Manda of Nibbles Skribbles just released her latest template set - #5! You can pick them up at One Single Seed and they are on sale! Yup, they are currently 25% off, so they are only $1.88. That is super affordable! Well, as if that wasn't enticing enough included with the purchase is a coupon code good for 25% off your next purchase. This coupon is good through the end of May. Additionally, May 1-3 Manda will have her entire store marked down 25% in celebration of National Scrapbook Day! (The coupon code found in the download for Template Set 5 is valid with this sale - meaning that if you buy the templates, you can get 50% off anything or everything in her store May 1-3) What are you waiting for? Go pick them up!

I made this layout using one of these templates. I also used Ellie Lash's new On The Move kit.

This is my nephew Joey... back when he was only a year and a half. Sigh...

UPDATE: I'm getting some really great applications for my CT team and have already accepted four awesome ladies. I think there is still room for one or two more... so if you're interested see the previous post for more details. Thanks!

Dani's New Releases

I don't know how many of you are familiar with Dani Alencar, her designs and her layouts. They are really fun, she has a great way of working with papers and colors. I always enjoy working with her templates. She released a new set at TDC on Thursday, she also released a new Label Your Date set. I made this layout using her kits Confetti (currently 30% off) and A Man's Worth.

I've had some family issues to take care of, but I'll be back soon.

Creamy Fudge Alpha Freebie... and a Speed Scrap!

Scroll to the bottom to pick up my alpha!

There will be a Speed Scrap tomorrow at 1:30 CST over at the Stuff To Scrap forum. They are lots of fun and you are bound to end up with a great layout. You are free to use any kit you’d like. Tomorrow’s SS will be hosted by Manda a.k.a Nibble Skribbles.

Manda designed an awesome template to give out as a PP and there will also be a bonus paper pack that I designed! I used very soft pastels, perfect for your Easter photos!

Here is a closer look of my paper pack.

Finally, here is my very first Alpha! It complements both my Strawberry Fudge and Blueberry Cream kits. I call it Creamy Fudge…. can you tell I love sweets? LOL! I had a lot of fun creating it and am very happy with how it turned out. I’ve started working on my next kit, it’ll be an extra special surprise. I do want to send a very special thank you to Anita for the wonderful suggestion. I’ll keep you all posted…

Sorry, this free download has expired! Coming soon to Stuff To Scrap...

Dani has a new kit and some inspiration!

Dani released her new kit Confetti at TDC today, its 20% off for the day. It was such a fun kit to work with, very colorful. I used it to scrap a picture I took of my son when he was just eight months old. Here is my layout:

Now that things are starting to settle down from my move I’m trying to catch up on my scrapping. I don’t know about you, but I love challenges! They have really fun weekly challenges at TDC, you get to earn points good towards store discounts or even a $10 store gift certificate! Everyone is really nice, I suggest you check it out.

I made this layout for this week’s Sketch challenge using Kelley Mickus’ Whisper Kit:

I made this layout for this weeks Scraplift challenge using Sugarplum Paperie’s A Little Birdie Kit.

In case you were wondering, I’ll be posting my Alpha tomorrow… see you then.

Fun Challenges and Templates!

First, Dani is hosting an All About Me challenge this month at Go Digital Scrapbooking. The challenge is to scrap a layout about an important event you shared with your significant other. She is even offering a free template to get you started! You are not required to use it to participate in the challenge, its just a little bonus. Dani is so nice!

This is the layout I made for the challenge using Dani’s awesome “A Man’s Worth” kit, recently released at The Digi Chick and Go Digital Scrapbooking.

I used the bonus template she is giving out and her adorable “Guga’s Brother” kit for my layout. You can pick up the kit at GDS. It’s so cute! Here is my layout:

Manda is hosting a template challenge at the Stuff To Scrap Forum. (You do need to register for the forum, but its super easy and fast.) This template was so much fun to work with. I was RAK’ed by Kelley Mickus from TDC this week. I used her gorgeous “Whisper” kit for my layout. My layout was LOTD at OSS! Yay!

On a side note, I finished my first Alpha today! It matches both my Strawberry Fudge kit and Blueberry Cream. I’ll be posting it in a few days, so make sure to come back for it. Below is a preview. I also finished my contribution to a blog train that will take place in early May. I am ready to start my next kit… so if you have any requests for a theme – I am all ears!

Blueberry Cream Freebie!

Well, I finally made it to Milwaukee a few days ago and things are starting to settle down. I finished the elements to my newest kit earlier today. I designed it to complement Strawberry Fudge. A few of the basic elements are the same, but in the new color scheme. If you see an element or paper that you like and would like it in the other color scheme let me know and I'll happily make it happen. I'm already working on a new kit, I'll be participating in my first blog train next month. I'll post more details soon.

A few extra details: Cork board background is for preview only and not included. Papers shown smaller than actual size. Not all elements shown. Shadows are for preview purposes only (although some elements are slightly shadowed for realism). This is for Personal Use only.

Here is Blueberry Cream:

Sorry, this free download has expired! Coming soon to Stuff To Scrap...

Have a great weekend everyone!
