December Days

Hi all! It's December 1st today, and the countdown to Christmas is on! That's the theme for the products I have to show you today, but at closer look, it's more about a new month of challenges and the release of the quarterly Hatchery collection, all at The Digichick!

Once again I am hosting the Alpha Challenge at The Digichick, which encourages participants to get creative in using their alpha stash. A fun twist this month is that Alexis Design Studio, sponsor of the challenge, is offering up a FREE alpha to use in the challenge!

Isn't it gorgeous? I used the alpha and a few pieces from Alexis Design Studio's bundle called A Cozy Christmas:

...and this is the layout that resulted:


I'd be thrilled if you joined me HERE any time during the month of December and had a go at the challenge!

Also new at The Digichick this month is the quarterly Hatchery collection, a combination of coloro-coordinated products from the design team that you can mix and match to your heart's content!  I grabbed a few pieces from Created by Jill's What I Remember Most offerings:

...and created another challenge layout, this one for the Word Challenge at The Digichick:


That's it for today! Enjoy your weekend, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

Black Friday Bonanza!

Hi all! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday, and are well-rested today! Black Friday events are everywhere in the retail world, and that includes the digital scrapbooking world as well.  To that end, I have three new releases that I want to show you, all on sale through the weekend!

The Digichick has its sales event running through Cyber Monday...check it out HERE. I was excited to work with this fun, energetic bundle from Created by Jill called Feeling Festive:

I used the main kit, an add-on kit, and the torn papers for this layout:


Digital Scrapbook Ingredients has two new producst out this weekend!  The first is a seasonal collaboration with Studio Flergs called Jolly Holiday:

I grabbed one of DSI's older templates and scrapped this photo from last December:


DSI also has another festive kit out, called Holiday Sparkle:

I was drawn to the more neutral tones in the kit and scrapped this photo from the same event last December:


If you're in the shopping mood, I hope you'll check out these goodies this weekend, and whether you do or not, enjoy the beginning of the season, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

Gather Friends

Hi all! Can you believe that Thanksgiving is just around the corner? We are still experiencing really mild temperatures around here, making it feel more like early fall than heading towards winter.  The digital scrapbooking world is celebrating the season with autumn-, Thanksgiving-, and even winter-themed kits. I took the time this week to work with a lovely collection by one of my favorite designers, Julie of Sherwood Studio, called Gather Friends:

I used the bundle to scrap a recent gathering of family:


That's it for this week! I won't have any more layouts to show you until Black Friday, so have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and make sure you come back and see me then!

Aces High

Hi all! What a week! With the election occupying my attention and dealing with an upcoming repair/remodeling project, I haven't had much scrapping time lately.  I found it imperative, though, to work with this latest release from JoCee Designs, a fun kit called Aces High:

My husband's family are big fans of casinos, bingo, racetracks, etc, and I found this kit perfect to scrap a photo from a special birthday gift for my mother-in-law several years ago:


The kit is on sale HERE through the weekend, so take a gamble and check it out! (sorry, I had to!) Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

November!

Hi all!  Happy November!  Isn't the year flying by? It's hard to believe the holiday season is upon us, especially when I was outdoors in shorts 2 days ago with the temps in the 70's!  The colors of the trees are almost done changing, though, and it will be chilly soon enough.  On to what's new this month at The Digichick!

As always, a new month means a new set of challenges, and this month I am hosting the relatively new Alpha Challenge:

 Here is a closer look at the layout I created for the challenge:


...and a look at the fabulous collection I used: Love, Courage, and Strength by Alexis Design Studio, who are sponsoring the challenge with a prize of a $5.00 coupon to their store:

I squeezed in time the other night to grab this gorgeous fall-themed kit from PrelestnayaP Design called Autumn Tryst:

Here's the layout I created:


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

New From The Digichick!

Hi all!  My, what a gloomy October day we have today!  Perfect for showing you the two new layouts I worked on with new releases from The Digichick this week.  Both are very seasonal, but versatile as well. First up is Roll With The Changes from Created by Jill:

http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Roll-With-The-Changes-Fusion-Bundle.html

The colors and patterns were perfect for scrapping this fall photo my daughter took:


This next page combined two Halloween-themed products; Bush Hollow Road kit by Kimeric Kreations and The Photo Project-Webbed by Sherwood Studio:

I liked the steampunk-themed elements in Kim's kit and decided to scrap a photo of a very unique musical group my niece introduced me to a few years ago:

 

Alright!  That wraps it up!  Have a safe and fun Halloween, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

New This Week from Digital Scrapbook Ingredients

Hi all!  What a week! I was wearing shorts on Tuesday while cleaning up in my garden and shivering in a hoodie today at the apple orchard. Gotta love the weather in Michigan! I've got a quick new product to show you this week, a fun template from Digital Scrapbook Ingredients from her Miscellaneous Template series.  Here is No. 4:

I rotated it a bit, grabbed some photos of my niece and nephew playing at the playground and the Picture Perfect Day kit from DSI to create this page:


The template is a great bargain HERE, so check it out, and then make sure you come back and see me soon!
