Seaside

Hi all! One thing I like about scrapping in the summer is that it gives me a good reason to stay indoors out of the heat.  I also love it when designers embrace the season, as evidenced by this latest release from Kimeric Kreations, Seaside:

While I didn't use the whole bundle, I found the main kit and the alpha add-on perfect for this layout that I did for a sketch challenge:


I love me some ocean-themed kits and I'm sure I'll be making good use of this one again and again!  You can pick it up on sale through the weekend HERE!  Stay cool, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

Artistic

Hi all! Like many other people I know, I like to express myself artistically.  My Mom was an excellent seamstress and all-around crafty person, a couple of my family members are talented quilters, and there are some photographers lurking about as well.  My artistic endeavor for the last few years has been scrapbooking, especially in a digital format.  One thing I also have in common with other Moms is saving every last scrap of art our kids made through their school years, but at some point, the collection can become overwhelming.  I saw a tip a few years back that said to take photos or scans of those projects so you don't have to keep bulky items cluttering up closet space for decades.

Imagine my delight, then, when Meagan's Creations offered up this bundle collection called, simply, Artistic:

I used the main kit and the handy pre-made clusters to scrap these images of some early elementary artwork that my oldest daughter created:


I might try doing an art journaling type page with this bundle too!  You can grab the bundle on sale through Sunday HERE at The Digichick.

Obviously, scrapbooking also helps us preserve memories, and I love to do heritage pages.  I was thrilled to grab this new release from Digital Scrapbook Ingredients called Second Hand:

It had just the right feel of nostalgia that I wanted for this photo from my husband's childhood:


Second Hand is on sale for 40% off through today only, so check it out and then come back and see me soon!

Summer Lovin'

Hi all!  I've had a busy week so I'll pop in real quick to show you the new products I scrapped with this week.

I reached way back to 2008 to scrap these photos from a trip to Cancun:


Over at The Digichick, I was thrilled to grab an adorable collab from Wendy P Designs and Blagovesta Gosheva called What I Love About You:

The colors and theme were perfect for these photos of my little niece!  I created this layout for the Give Me Space Challenge at The Digichick:


That wraps it up for this week!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

Seas The Day!

Hi all!  Happy Fourth of July weekend!  A lot of folks are enjoying a long weekend, as am I!  I've been spending a lot of time outdoors in the lovely weather, but I'm still making some time for scrapping!  Willeminje of Digital Scrapbook Ingredients has a lovely new kit out called Seas The Day:

http://www.sweetshoppedesigns.com/sweetshoppe/product.php?productid=34411&cat=824&page=3

I've slowly been scanning in and scrapping photos from our 2003 family trip to Hawaii, and I thought this kit was perfect for these photos:


DSI also has a re-released template set out this weekend in her shop at Sweet Shoppe Designs:

http://www.sweetshoppedesigns.com/sweetshoppe/product.php?productid=34427&cat=&page=1

I thought it would be useful for scrapping the rest of the photos that I started off with in the first layout:


DSI's new releases are on sale for 35% off through Monday the 4th this weekend, so make sure you check them out!

In other news, a new month always brings a new round of challenges to The Digichick, and this month I'm taking it a bit easy by hosting the Chatty Challenge:

It's perfect for me right now since I've been sort of busy...no scrapping involved, but you can still earn Chickie Points and a chance for a $25 Persnickety Prints gift certificate!  I hope you'll visit me HERE in the forums, and then make sure you come back and see me soon!

A Little More Summer Scrapping!

Hi all!  I'm back again this week with another page to show you.  Summery products abound in the scrapping shops right now, and with the high temps and no rain outside, I'm feeling the seasonal love.

Digital Scrapbooking Ingredients has not one, not two, but THREE new releases this week, all on sale for today only at her shop at Sweet Shoppe Designs.  My real life kept me from scrapping with all three, but I did grab two sets!

 Here's a collaboration with Becca Bonneville called For The Record: Summer:

...and a new template set called Everyday Moments V.3:

http://www.sweetshoppedesigns.com/sweetshoppe/product.php?productid=34351&cat=823&page=1

I scrapped a very summery photo my daughter took at the beach on Memorial Day:


There you have it!  Remember, this lovelies are on sale for Saturday only, so check them out as soon as you can, and then make sure you come back and see me soon!

Summer Scrapping

Hi all!  We just hit the Summer Solstice, and the warm weather is in full swing.  We had temps in the 90's last week, and that means cooling off with some scrapping in the AC.  Here's what I've been up to:

All my recent scrapping has been with goodies from The Digichick.  Last week I worked with a new release from  Created By Jill called Serenity Of The Sea:

http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Serenity-Of-The-Sea-Fusion-Bundle-FWP-Artsy-Template-1.html

I love the shades of blue in this bundle, and I used it to scrap a page for the Scraplift Challenge at TDC:


While the bundle isn't on sale anymore, it's still a fabulous deal, and you can grab it HERE.

I worked with two new products this week, the first one being this yummy offering from Vero-The French Touch called Snacktime:

http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Snack-Time-Page-Kit.html

I immediately thought of this photo my niece recently took of her girls sharing a muffin:


 Finally, Jo Cee Designs has a fantastically cute new kit out called Once Upon A Time:

http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Once-Upon-A-Time-Digital-Kit.html

Again, I knew of just the perfect photo and scrapped it for a sketch challenge:


Snacktime and Once Upon A Time are on sale through Sunday night, so check them out, stay cool, and come back and see me soon!

http://www.sweetshoppedesigns.com/sweetshoppe/product.php?productid=34219&cat=&page=1

Those fun little sunglasses elements reminded me of a recent photo of my niece, so I decided to scrap it:


Check the kit out HERE and grab it while it's on sale, and then come back and see me soon!
