Black Friday!

Hi all!  I hope everyone who celebrates the holiday had a safe and blessed Thanksgiving.  30+ members of my immediate family gathered at my house for food and fellowship, and while it was crowded, a good time was had by all.

Thanksgiving segues into Black Friday in the USA, and the digital scrap world is no different!  The Digichick has a great sale event going on all weekend:

Digital Scrapbook Ingredients has several new releases for the weekend and while I would have loved to scrapped with all of them, my real life limited me to working with just one.  I chose Rustic Christmas:

I loved the way the colors and theme worked so well with this family photo from last Christmas:

The DSI shop is on sale for 40% off HERE through Saturday evening and then 30% off through Monday night, so treat yourself to some fabulous scrappy shopping!  Have a safe weekend, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

New From Digital Scrapbook Ingredients

Hi all!  Today I have two new goodies to show you from Digital Scrapbook Ingredients!  First of all, DSI is the Featured Designer this week at Sweet Shoppe Designs, which means that with a $10 purchase in the shop you get Give Thanks for free!

I felt the colors and textures went well with this older photo of my husband's family:

Also new is the latest installment in the Life Captured series, November, of course!

I grabbed the main kit and one of the templates and did this layout, which will eventually be half of a 2-page spread: 

If these appeal to you make sure you snap them up while they're on sale and then come back and see me soon!

Winter is Coming

Hi all!  With Thanksgiving next week, Christmas a month away, and our first snowfall of the season forecast for this weekend, it's pretty clear what time of year we are headed in to.  The scrapping world turns its attention to the season as well, so the pages I have to show you today have that wintery feel!

One of my favorite Digichick designers, Cathrine of Paper Garden Projects, is back after a hiatus, and I just had to grab up her new release for this week, Holiday Home:

Cathy's products are always perfect for vintage photos, so I grabbed this image from a Christmas a LONG time ago:

Also with a seasonal theme but with a totally different feel is this offering from LDrag Designs called Let It Snow:

The colors, sparkle, and elements inspired me to scrap a different sort of wintery page:

Both these lovelies are on sale for 30% off through the weekend HERE, so check them out and then come back and see me soon!

Baby Mine

Hi all!  Did everyone enjoy their DSD weekend?  I did, and then had to jump right into a busy work week, so not much scrapping this week.  I did take the time to grab this fun collection from JoCee Designs called Baby Mine Blue:

It just so happens that we have a new little member of our extended family due to make an appearance in January, so I had some fun scrapping this page:

The template is from the November Template Challenge at The Digichick.  Baby Mine comes in a Pink version too, so if you've got some baby photos to scrap, check out JoCee's shop HERE, and then come back and see me soon!

DSD 2015 is Here!

Hi all!  Happy Digital Scrapbooking Day, one of the best days in the digital scrapping world!  Actually, the fun continues all weekend as many sites have sales and games straight through Sunday or even Monday.  I'm here today to show you my own little corner of the festivities!

Over at The Digichick there are the sales, of course, but also a ton of opportunities to win goodies by participating in games in the forum HERE.  I myself am hosting the Win Your Wish from Created by Jill event, and it's fun to see which products participants are choosing as their favorites.  On the scrappy side, this month also features the latest quarterly collab from the Digichick Design Team, a wonderfully seasonal collection called Home For The Holidays:

I grabbed the main kit and one of the templates and created this layout of our Christmas tree last year:

You can grab the collab HERE at The Digichick!  In other news, Digital Scrapbook Ingredients has not one, not two, but THREE new goodies out this weekend!  Having to spend most of my days at my real-life job, I was only able to scrap with two of them.  Take a look!

Xmas is Coming is a cheery, colorful collection celebrating the countdown to Christmas:

As a coordinating gift, DSI has a free template HERE on her Facebook page, so I grabbed it up and made this page:

Also new is a non-holiday collaboration with Studio Basic Designs called Only Him:

As soon as I saw this kit I was reminded of an older photo of my uncle that is in my Mom's photo album, so I decided to scrap it!

If any of these goodies appeal to you, check them out this weekend while they're on sale!  Enjoy your DSD weekend, and then come back and see me soon!

Featured Designer Challenge!

Hi all!  Welcome to November!  A new month means a new set of challenges to inspire us, so I wanted to show you what I'm hosting over at The Digichick! 

I'm hosting the Featured Designer Challenge for the first time, and this month we get to know Val, the designer behind Valentina's Creations. I worked with her latest release, Gentleman, which is still on sale for 30% off through this evening:

As well as being an awesome collection for scrapping the men in your life, this product is also good for somewhat "vintage" photos, lol:

Valentina is giving away $2 off coupons as part of her feature, and one lucky winner will win a $7 gift certificate to her shop, so visit me HERE for the challenge, and then come back here to my little blog and see me again soon!

Life Defined

Hi all!  October is winding down and November is right around the corner.  In the scrapping world excitement is building for Digital Scrapbooking Day, which is November 7th, but for now, let me show you what I've been up to in the meantime!

A fun new designer at The Digichick is Created by Jill, who I've chatted about before.  She comes up with these amazing bundles and templates that make it easy for a scrapper to embrace the art journaling style with some groundwork supplies.  Take a look at Blendits Layered Template 14:

I also grabbed this newly released kit, Life Defined:

...and by choosing various papers and clipping them to the layers in the template, adding my photos and a few elements, I came up with this layout:

These are some products that really intrigue me, and if they catch your eye too, grab the kit HERE and the template HERE at The Digichick while they are on sale for 30% off!

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