It just so happens that a niece of mine is expecting her second child, so I was stoked to be able to scrap this photo:


The kit also comes with an add-on journal card and word strip collection. It's on sale for today only, so check it out, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

New This Week at The Digichick

Hi all! After a gorgeous, busy, Labor Day weekend, I had time on a few rainy days to do some scrapping for The Digichick.  Two pages this week!

First, I worked with this lovely kit from Sunrise Studios called Humble Pie:

The colors and the references to mountains inspired me to scrap some older photos of my daughter's hiking trip in Colorado a few years ago. The page was done for a template challenge at the Fiddle Dee Dee blog:


Then, The Digicrafter team released this fabulous bundle called Home:

I used the main kit and one of the templates in the bundle to scrap this photo my sister posted on Facebook after a weekend camping trip:


All new releases at The Digichick are one sale through the weekend, so snatch them up while you can, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

September

Hi all! Time marches on, and here we are with Labor Day just around the corner.  As usual, a new moth brings with it a new round of challenges ar The Digichick!  This month I asked to host a Product Challenge, because I wanted to explore a product I wanted to play around with a bit---gesso:

 Here's a closer look at my example page, showing how I ended up using the product:


 Here's a peek at the product I used, Some Kind Of Wonderful - Messy Gesso from Created By Jill:

I hope you'll join me HERE for the challenge during September!

This month is also a celebration of the latest Hatchery collection at The Digichick, and I was thrilled to work with Akizo Designs' contribution, Dahlia;

I combined it with the template from this month's Template Challenge, also by Akizo, to do this layout.  I just love the combo of purple and green!


Check these goodies out, have a safe and happy Labor Day, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

Summer Fades Away

Hi all! Here we are in the last full week of August, and just like everyone else, I'm wondering where the summer went. Products in the digital scrapping world are reflecting the slow transition into fall, as seen in this new release from Digital Scrapbook Ingredients called Summer Fades Away:

The colors were perfect for this photo of my little niece and nephew at Vacation Bible School a few weeks ago:


Over at The Digichick, I worked with a more general product, a wonderful template set from Christaly Scrap, Shapes Series: Rectangles:

I added the most recent Digichick collab, Listen To The Music, and scrapped this photo of another little niece:


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

New This Week!

Hi all! Coming into the later weeks of August puts everyone into the back-to-school feeling, and the new releases I scrapped with this week are no exception. At The Digichick, I worked with this goody from The Digicrafter called, what else, Back To School:

http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Back-To-School.html

There is also a fun add-on Word Art set:

http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Back-To-School-Word-Art.html

I combined the two in order to continue documenting my girls' yearly official school photos:


Digital Scrapbook Ingredients has teamed up with Sugary Fancy to broaden the theme with this release called Back Into Routine:

I used it to complete a layout for a scraplift challenge on the Sweet Shoppe Designs blog:


I hope you are enjoying your weeks of summer; make sure you come back and see me soon!
