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:

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:

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:

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:

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!

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!

June Hatchery!

Hi all!  Can you believe it's June already?  After the cold wet spring that seemed to last forever, the outdoors is finally acting like summer, and I'm loving it.

The other thing I am stoked about is a new month of challenges at The Digichick coinciding with the release of the Hatchery, a quarterly mix-n-match collection from the design team.  I did two pages this week, the first one using Hatchery items from The Nifty Pixel, a collection called Adrift:

http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/ADRIFT-Collection.html

I used the collection to scrap a photo about the end of summer:


My other page is actually the inspiration for the Font Challenge that I'm hosting this month at The Digichick:


 Here's a closer look at my layout:


...and here's a peek at the Hatchery goodies I used, a collection from Meagan's Creations called Imagination:

http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Imagination-Collection-Bundle-by-Meagan-s-Creations.html

Just like all new releases, the Hatchery items are on sale through the weekend, and as always, the individual portions are available outside of the full collections HERE.  I hope to see you at the Font Challenge, and make sure you come back to see me here soon!

Sugar and Spice

Hi all!  Well, summer has finally arrived, with temps in the upper 80's, just in time for the Memorial Day weekend.  I have been trying to get my garden in shape and have also been crazy busy at work, so I had minimal scrapping time this week.

I did make time, though, to grab portions of this stunning collection from Kimeric Kreations called Sugar and Spice:

http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Sugar-and-Spice-collection.html

Of course, I knew just which sweet little girl to scrap with this:


The collection is on sale HERE at The Digichick through Sunday, and as usual, if you don't need the whole set you can grab individual portions as needed!  Have a great Memorial Day weekend, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

Market Fresh

Hi all!  Did everyone enjoy their iNSD and Mother's Day?  I did!  Now that the excitement is over and the shopping is done, it's time to get back to regular scrapping.  I only have one new page to show you this week.  I made it from WendyP Designs' kit called Market Fresh:

http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Market-Fresh-Digital-Scrapkit-by-wendyp-designs.html

The kit also comes as part of a fun bundle which also contains these page protectors:

http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Market-Fresh-Page-Protectors-by-wendyp-designs.html

I combined them with some photos from a biannual trip to a local Farmer's Market:


The page protectors give the illusion of items being placed in the different pockets, thereby giving some parts of the page that hazy look you can get from a plastic overlay.  I added other elements on top to look as if they were put on the outside of the plastic.

Anyways, these goodies are available as stand-alone products or as part of a money-saving bundle, and it's all on sale at The Digichick through the weekend, so check them out, and com back and see me soon!

interNational Scrapbooking Day Fun and a Freebie!

Hi all!  Happy {inter}National Scrapbooking Day!  I'm coming to you a little late today because of my stupid work schedule, but I didn't want to let the day go by without showing you some goodies and offering up a freebie for you!

As usual, I have some new releases to show you.  First up is a fun new kit from Digital Scrapbook Ingredients called Travel Notes:

http://www.sweetshoppedesigns.com/sweetshoppe/product.php?productid=34016&cat=&page=1

Once again, my traveling niece provided me with the perfect photo to scrap with this kit:


This kit is one of FOUR new products DSI has out in her shop HERE at Sweet Shoppe Designs, and they're on sale through this special weekend, so make sure you check them out right away!

Over on The Digichick side of town, I snapped up this fun kit from WendyP Designs called Siblings:

http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Siblings-Digital-Scrapkit-by-wendyp-designs.html

As it happens, I had just spent a girls' weekend with my sisters and older nieces, so I had the perfect photo for this kit too:


In addition to the regular New Release sale going on at The Digichick, we are also hosting a HUGE storewide sale and playing some fun games in the forum!  I'm hosting one of the twenty-something Win Your Wish events going on through tomorrow evening, so make sure you hop on over there too!

And now, for your freebie.  Every now and then I get inspired to create a template from one of my layouts, and that's what I did with the page above:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/40791487/azk_insd_2016_template.zip

You can grab the template by clicking HERE or on the image above.  I have PSD, TIFF, and PNG files in the download.  I hope you enjoy your freebie and the rest of your iNSD weekend, and make sure you come back and see me soon!
