It's July!

Happy July, everyone!  Tomorrow is the 4th, Independence Day in the USA.  More relevant to my little blog here, though, are the goodies a new month brings.  Take a look:

I'm hosting the Desktop Challenge over at The Digichick this month, and in honor of the 4th of July I'm asking participants to use the colors red, white, and blue:

For my desktop background I used the  gorgeous Patriot Bundle by Tami Miller Designs:


If you'd like to spruce up your desktop, you can join me HERE at The Digichick!

I participated in another challenge at The Digichick this week, one featuring a spotlight on Bekah E. Designs.  Here is the brand new release of hers that I scrapped with, Cool Summer Treats

I loved the bright, happy colors for this photo of my girls when they were much younger:


Finally, over at The Digital Press we have this month's Special Edition collection.  Digital Scrapbook Ingredients has a variety of offerings available, all with the theme of Take A Hike:


I just so happened to have to a hiking photo that I wanted to scrap:


I hope you find something here that catches you eye!  If you do, follow the links to check them out, have a wonderful Independence Day weekend, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

This Week's Goodies!

Hi all!  I've had a really busy week as we are working on a home improvemnent project, but there were so many new releases that I just had to grab that when I couldn't pound One. More. Nail., I scrapped my little heart out!  Look see!

Over at The Digichick Ramona B Designs has a very timely kit out called Congratulations:

Do you know how many graduation photos I need to scrap?  I thought this kit worked well for these:


Over at The Digital Press, Willenijne of Digital Scrapbook Ingredients has been a busy girl!  First up is this fantastic collaboration with Jenn Barrette called All you Need Is Ice Cream:

http://shop.thedigitalpress.co/All-You-Need-Is-Ice-Cream.html

I grabbed a template from the SBC blog and some really cute photos of my nieces and scrapped this page:


DSI also has out the next installment of her year-long collection, Life Captured-June:

I snapped up a template from Wishing Well Creations, also new this week:

All of this awesomeness is on sale through the weekend, so check out the links, and then come back and see me soon!

At The...

Hi all!  It's Friday, so that means it's time to show you the new releases I worked with this week.  The two pages I made both have names that start with "At The", hence the title of this post.  Not terribly original, I know, but there you have it.

Lori of LJS Designs created this safari-themed kit called Wild At Heart:

I was thrilled to scrap these photos that have been languishing in one of my photo albums for a while:


You can grab Wild At Heart HERE at The Digichick on sale through the weekend!

In other news, Digital Scrapbook Ingredients has teamed up with Studio Basic to create this stunning bundle called A Taste Of Summer:

http://shop.thedigitalpress.co/A-Taste-Of-Summer-Bundle.html

This is such a fun and happy kit, and what about those artsy bits?!  This one is a keeper for sure.  Here's the page I made, titled At the Beach, using an older template from DSI:


A Taste of Summer can be found HERE at The Digital Press!

All right folks, that's it for this week!  Have a good weekend, and then come back and see me soon!

This Week's Releases

Hi all!  I'm headed off to work in a few minutes but I wanted to show you the new releases I worked with this week.  First up is this lovely neutral colored kit from Tami Miller Designs called Memories Captured:

http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Memories-Captured.html

When it first caught my eye I thought it would be great for a male-themed page (Father's Day is coming up, you know!), but then I came across an older photo of my mother- and sister-in-law and decided to go with the vintage feel:


You can find this beauty HERE at The Digichick on sale through the weekend!  On a more fun note, Laura of Wishing Well Creations has released the latest (and probably last) add-on kit in her Summer Bucket List series of collaborations with Amanda Yi Designs, this one focusing on The Great Outdoors:

http://shop.thedigitalpress.co/Summer-Bucket-List-The-Great-Outdoors-Collection.html

I had fun scrapping a couple of photos from one of the many camping trips we took when my girls were little:


You can pick this set up HERE in the Wishing Well shop at The Digital Press, again on sale through the weekend.  Do that, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

All About Him

Hi all!  I'm popping in on a Tuesday this week to show you a kit I had fun working with this weekend.  It's by Digital Scrapbook Ingredients and it's called All About Him:

http://shop.thedigitalpress.co/All-About-Him.html

I was inspired to scrap a photo that I came across just last week of my brother-in-law and his brothers:


I'm showing this kit off today because it's on sale for 50% off for two days only, so check it out HERE, and then come back and see me soon!

Special Edition and The Hatchery!

Hi all!  How's June treating you so far?  I'm hoping to enjoy some nice weather today before it gets stormy for the next few days.  But I can't go out until I show you what's new this week, can I?  Store mix-and-max collections are in the digi news this week!  Here's what I played with:

Over at The Digichick, the Hatchery items are out.  I grabbed this collection from Meagan's Creations called Tropical:

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

I dove into my pile of photos from our long-ago trip to Hawaii and scrapped this photo:


All the Hatchery items are on sale through the weekend...check them out HERE!

Over at The Digital Press, the collection is called the Special Edition.  I worked with two sets that could have been mixed together, but I chose to keep them separate.  First up is Funfair by Digital Scrapbook Ingredients:


Put them all together, and here you go:


From Wishing Well Creations comes Project 2015 - June:

http://shop.thedigitalpress.co/Project-Twenty-Fifteen-June-Kit.html

I really loved all the papers so I used more of them than usual:


All these products are on sale through the weekend, so check them out before they go back to regular price, and then make sure you come back and see me soon!

Welcome to June!

Hi all!  Happy June!  Can you believe that it's here already?  Time flies, as they say! Michigan isn't quite sure about that though, as we are only in the mid 40's as far as temperature goes at the moment.  I was busy in real life this past week, which again means not much scrapping, but I couldn't let today go by without inviting you to the challenge I'm hosting this month over at The Digichick:  The Font Challenge:

Here's a closer look at the layout I did as an inspiration piece, using two of the fonts and the fabulous collection called Love At First Sight by Kimeric Kreations: 


I hope you'll join me HERE for the challenge, and then make sure you come back and see me soon!
