Happy Holidays and a Freebie!

Hi all!  Happy Thanksgiving to all my USA friends!  Even if you don't celebrate the holiday where you live, I hope you are spending the day with people and things you are grateful for.

Holiday or not, today is New Release day at The Digichick, and I had fun this week playing with some goodies from Snips and Snails Designs, a kit called Happy Holidays:

I grabbed the kit and some add-on solid papers and scrapped this photo of some beloved members of my husband's side of the family:

Because of the holiday weekend, new releases at The Digichick are on sale for 40% off instead of the usual 30%, so check out Happy Holidays HERE, and see what else may catch your eye while you're there!  

And now for your freebie! The warm fuzzies of the holiday inspired me to make a template from my layout as a little Thanksgiving gift for you.  You can download it HERE or by clicking on the image below.   The folder contains PSD, TIFF, and PNG files:

I hope you enjoy it, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

Hi all!  How's the weather in your neck of the woods?  A little crazy, if you are like a lot of folks I know!  Let's chill (no pun intended) with some scrapping goodness, shall we?

Kimeric Kreations has an amazing new collection out called Timeless:

I used portions of the  collection and a template from a challenge at Scrap Stacks and did this layout of a photo from my childhood:

The collection is on sale for 30% off HERE through Sunday, so check it out before then!  In the meantime, stay warm, and come back and see me soon!

Into The Woods, and Something New!

Hi all!  Here we are at the middle of November already! Can you believe it?  My scrapping life is going to be a little slow at the moment, as Wishing Well Creations and Digital Scrapbook Ingredients are in the process of moving from Pixels and Company to their new home, scheduled to open around the end of the month:

In the meantime, life continues as normal at The Digichick, and I had the chance to play with a really fun new release from LJS Digital Designs, called Into The Woods:

See that little hedgehog?  When I saw that little guy, I knew I had to grab the kit, and it was perfect for these photos from last year:

As usual, the kit is on sale for 30% off HERE until Sunday evening.  Have a good week, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

Fall Fun!

Hi all!  Did you all enjoy your DSD weekend?  I won a $10 gift certificate to Pixels and Company, so I'm happy!  Even after all the excitement of the event, there are still new releases this week to play with, and play I did!

I grabbed two new releases from The Digichick.  The first is a lovely kit from Paper Garden Projects called Autumn Silhouettes:

I also grabbed a template set from Akizo Designs called Paper Play #2:

...and this is the layout I ended up with!

My guest stint for Digital Scrapbook Ingredients continues with a really fun set of templates with lots of layers called Thankful Templates:

I continued enjoying the colors of fall by making this page:

These new releases are on sale through Sunday so snap them up soon if you like them!  While you're over at The Digichick, don't forget to check out the challenge that I'm hosting this month, the November Signature Challenge!  Here's my new siggy:

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

Happy Digital Scrapbooking Day Weekend!

Hi all!  If you're a digital scrapbooker, you've probably heard of Digital Scrapbooking Day, and if you haven't before, well, now you have!  DSD is celebrated the first Saturday in November each year, with sales, games, and general fun stuff.  The festivities start a little early at some forums, so let me tell you what's up!

At Pixels and Company, Digital Scrapbook Ingredients has a wonderful template Grab Bag available for DSD:

I just loved these templates!  I used them for a couple of pages...for the first one,  I combined a template with a lovely new seasonal kit called All Year Round-November:

The second page uses a different template with DSI's contribution to the November Company Stash at Pixels and Co., a set of papers and elements called Yesteryear:

And here are the pages!

Also at Pixels and Company is a sweet mini kit from Wishing Well Creations called Count Your Blessings:

Here's the layout I did with it:

You can grab the mini as a stand-alone kit HERE or as part of a value-added larger collection  HERE, on sale through Sunday!

Over on The Digichick side of town, DSD is in full swing too!  The Design Team has released their final quarterly collab of the year, a gorgeous number called We Are Memorykeepers:

The fun colors prompted me to scrap these fun pictures from earlier this year:

Also new this week is the return of Paper Garden Projects after a hiatus from designing.  I grabbed Cathrine's first new release, this lovely kit called Autumn Doodles:

I just loved the subtle colors in this kit:

These goodies are on sale through the weekend as well, so check them out while the DSD sales are in effect!  Enjoy your weekend, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

New Stuffs!

Hi all!  How is your October going?  I had to scrape frost off my windshield this morning. Brrr, but the weather is supposed to be milder for the next week or so, so it's all good!  Here's what's new this week!

Kimeric Kreations is in full Halloween mode with this amazing new collection called Hallowtide:

I used it to scrap a Halloween photo from many years ago:

I loved how I could make the page sort of sweet, not spooky!  The collection is on sale HERE at The Digichick for 30% off through Sunday evening, and as always, individual pieces are available if you don't need the whole thing.

In other news, in this post I showed you a layout I did for a contest at Pixels and Company that was sponsored by Digital Scrapbook Ingredients.  Top prize was a 3-month guest Creative Team position on the team, and while I wasn't that winner, Willemijne contacted me a couple of weeks ago and asked if I'd like to guest on her team as well!  What fun!  Of course I said yes, and here is the first goodie I have worked with, a collaboration with Amber Shaw called The Good Stuff:

I created this layout:

You can grab the collab HERE.  That's it for today!  Enjoy your week, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

Hi all! I'm glad to see you back here!  Introvert is not only a term that I think applies to me, but is the name of a new collection from Lonetta Avalar of Creative Victorian:

I totally fell in love with the palette and decided to use it for a template challenge, scrapping a collection of photos that always make me a little sad when I see them:

The collection is on sale for 30% off HERE through Sunday evening, and as usual, the various portions are available individually of you don't need the whole set.

In other news, if you'll remember, in this post I told you about my participation in the Cropped event at Pixels and Company.  I'm happy to report that I did make it to Round 3 and will find out tomorrow if I make it into Round 4.  Here's my layout for this week's challenge, the requirements being to use the 4 provided ingredients and "get creative in showing us what you "see". Whether it's a layout about something you see every day, or where you see yourself in ten years, we can't wait to see it, and we want you to be creative in the way you show us! This is also the one round where photography will be heavily judged. (*Please note: This does not mean that your photo must be technically correct, but it does mean that the photo should really showcase your subject and/or evoke emotion with your theme.)":

Only 18 scrappers will move on to the next round, so wish me luck, and come back and see me soon!
