A Lingering Hush

Hi all! As I sit here, it is snowing outside, for the first time this season, I think. I'm not ready for winter yet! I want to hold on to autumn a bit longer. Hence, my choice of kit to work with this week at The Digichick, A Lingering Hush from Designs by Helly:

I used it to scrap this recent photo for a photo editing challenge at Just Art:


As usual, the kit is on sale HERE through the weekend, so check it out and come back and see me soon!

Spiced Autumn

Hey everyone! Welcome to November! As you know, a new month means a new set of challenges at The Digichick, and this month I was inspired to host a Quote Challenge:

I love scrapping fall photos, so I decided to recycle an image I took a few years ago into this dreamy blended page:


I used the kit Spiced Autumn by BooLand Designs, who has been guesting at The Digichick. Trust me when I tell you that the papers in this kit are simply stunning:

As with all new releases, Spiced Autumn is on sale through the weekend; the challenge will run all month, so I hope you'll check it out, and then make sure you come back and see me soon!

The Neutral Zone

Hi all! How has everyone's week been? Mine has been super busy--I moved to a new home and then spent some time with family in a girls' weekend. Never fear, I took some time to scrap! Here's what I worked with:

http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/The-Neutral-Zone-collection.html

The Neutral Zone is a fabulous new collection from Kimeric Kreations that has versatility written all over it. As the name implies, the basic elements and papers are in shades of white, brown, and black, but there are pops of color too if you need them.  The neutral tones are what grabbed me though, since I have been wanting to scrap this old family photo for quite a while, and hadn't found quite the right product until now:


I suggest you snap up with the main kit or the whole bundle, and then make sure you come back and see me soon! November is just around the corner!

October Twilight

Hi everyone! In my neck of the woods we are creeping ever deeper into the time of year when darkness comes earlier and earlier each day. How appropriate, then for Sherwood Studio to put out this new collection called October Twilight:

I loved the colors and the starry background papers for this photo of my little niece:


The bundle is one sale HERE through the weekend! I hope yours is wonderful, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

The Middle of October

Hi all! How is your October going? Mine is pretty busy...extra hours at work and busyness at home too getting ready to move to a new home in a aweek or two. But yes, I will ALWAYS find time to scrap, lol! Here's what I was up to this past week:

Aimee Harrison had several new releases this week at The Digichick, but what immediately caught my eye was this set of templates called Simply #2:

I was struck by how truly clean and simple they were, and the upper left template was perfect for me to scrap this amazing photo my daughter took last week:


The kit I used is also by Aimee, her October's Opal collection that I showed you a couple of posts ago. Have a good weekend, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

Digital Scrapbooking Day Weekend Is Here!

Hi all! Welcome to DSD weekend! Although Digital Scrapbooking Day is technically not until Saturday the 7th, most scrapbooking sites have started the festivities early, and The Digichick is no exception.  If you want to check out the goods, go to this post in the forum HERE to get the details. There are games, Win Your Wish threads, amazing sales in the shops, and a designer Blog Hop that gets you an amazing free kit!

My own little contribution to the fun is to serve as hostess for the Win Your Wish thread featuring Snickerdoodle Designs...Karen is giving not one but two lucky winners their choice of item from her shop! Take a look HERE, and make sure you check out the other threads too! All events run through Monday night, but don't wait until then!

While you're in the shop, you may want to check out the new releases. This week I had some fun working with these clever Multi-Photo Masks from PrelestnayaP Design:

One was perfect for this layout that I created for the October Mood Board Challenge:


I hope you enjoy your DSD weekend, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

Hi all! Happy October! I'm popping in real quick-like amidst all the Digital Scrapbooking Day preparations to invite you to join me at The Digichick any time in October for the challenge I'm hosting this month, the Desktop Challenge:

http://www.thedigichick.com/forums/showthread.php?65261-Desktop-Challenge-October-2017

 Here's a closer look at the desktop background that I'm sporting this month:


I used the latest collection in Aimee Harrison's Birthstones series, October's Opal:

Don't you love how the collection has just the right amount of autumn vibe to it, but still has those gorgeous blues? If you do, check it out HERE, and if you want to spruce up your own desktop background, join me HERE in October for the challenge!

I'll be posting again later this week for DSD, so make sure you come back and see me soon!
