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:

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:

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:

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!

New This Week at The Digichick!

Hi all!  I worked with a couple of goodies from the shop at The Digichick this week.  They are very different products, one being a template and the other a gorgeous, full kit!  Let's take a look!

First up is the template, from a new set from Meagan's Creations called Collage Templates: Life:

http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Collage-Templates-Life-by-Meagan-s-Creations.html

I grabbed Meagan's kit Ode To Music that I already had in my stash and scrapped these photos:


Snickerdoodle Designs has a gorgeous collection out in her shop called You Are A Masterpiece. You'll see more of this bundle in my next post, but for this layout I just used the main kit:

http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/You-Are-A-Masterpiece-Kit.html

The collection celebrates the individuality of all the little ones in our lives, so I grabbed a photo of a little niece to scrap:


These goodies are on sale through the weekend, so check them out before they go back to regular price!  I'll be back...a new month is coming up and you know that means new challenges, plus interNational Scrapbooking Day is next weekend, so make sure you come back and see me soon!

Everyday Kindness

Hi all!  I've had another busy week, so not much scrapping to show off today.  I did make time to work with a lovely new bundle from Jacqui E Smith called Everyday Kindness:

http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Everyday-Kindness-memory-keeping-bundle.html

I grabbed just the papers and the element pack to scrap yet another photo from my niece's study abroad semester:


If you think this collection is as pretty as I do, check it out HERE at The Digichick while it's on sale this weekend!  Enjoy your day, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

This Week

Hi all!  Spring is finally starting to make its presence known around here, so I'm happy.  I'm happy to be showing you what I've scrapped this week as well!

On A Whimsical Adventure has a fun mini kit in her shop at The Digichick called April Fool:

http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/April-Fool-Mini-Kit.html

She says the fish theme stems from a local tradition of trying to paste paper fish on people's backs without them knowing as an April Fool's Day joke, but I went with a more literal interpretation:


You can grab the mini HERE at The Digichick!  Digital Scrapbook Ingredients has a new release out this week too, a collab with Blagovesta Gosheva called A Picture Perfect Day:

http://www.sweetshoppedesigns.com/sweetshoppe/product.php?productid=33854&cat=813&page=1

I used the bundle along with DSI's template Life Captured-October to do this page of my niece's continuing adventures while studying abroad:


Well, that's it for this week!  I'm headed outdoors to enjoy some nice weather...I hope you can do the same, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

Spring? Scrapping

Hi all!  The calendar says it's April but the weather outside thinks it's still winter.  What's a girl to do but surround herself with digital spring?  I worked with two new releases this week, both of them celebrating the season we should be having!

First I have A Happy Day from LDrag Designs, new over at The Digichick:

http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/A-Happy-Day-by-LDrag-Designs.html

I liked the colors and pretty flowers for this Easter photo of my niece and her little girl:


I only used the main kit, but if you'd like, there are coordinating add-on journal cards and stacked and worn papers and alphas and glitter styles and...you get the idea!

I also scrapped with a new release from Digital Scrapbook Ingredients called Dance In The Rain:

http://www.sweetshoppedesigns.com/sweetshoppe/product.php?productid=33812&cat=&page=1

I used it to scrap these photos of my nephew's daughter.  Ironically, the weather in late February/early March, when these pictures were taken, was nicer than what we have now!


I hope your spring weather is behaving itself...enjoy your weekend, and make sure you come back and see me soon!
