February is Winding Down

...and that means the Pennysaver event at The Digital Press is coming to an end.  Hi all!  Mother Nature still has us in the grips of her deep freeze, and I'm worn out from a long day at work, so I'm going to keep this post brief and then go snuggle under some blankets with a good book!

I grabbed some of the final Pennysaver releases from Digital Scrapbook Ingredients, a template and kit from the Life Captured-February collection:

Finally getting around to participating in some challenges over at The Digital Press, I used these goodies to rework an older layout for a photography challenge:


The Pennysavers are only on sale for $1 until the end of the month, so check them out before they go up to regular price in March!

Over at The Digichick, Lina of LDrag Designs has a gorgeous wedding-themed collection out called Ever After.  Here's a look at the main kit:

The colors of the kit brought to mind a family photo from this past Christmas that I wanted to scrap:


Ever After is on sale through the weekend, so take a look at the kit and the rest of the collection!  Make sure you come back and see me soon, as see what I do with this layout in March!

February Fun

Hi all!  Cold enough for ya?  We, like many parts of the country, are trapped in a frigid week.  My poor little car is struggling to come to life each morning so I am babying it along.  So, what more excuse do I need for some scrapping!

More Pennysaver goodies are in at The Digital Press.  This week I have a new template set from Wishing Well Creations called Stitched Down Vol 7:

These are so much fun!  I'm trying to create a cookbook with recipes turned into layouts so I grabbed a template and one of Laura's older kits and did this page to print:


From Digital Scrapbook Ingredients we have an adorable kit called Carefree:

http://shop.thedigitalpress.co/Carefree1.html

...and a new template set,  A Little Bit of This:

http://shop.thedigitalpress.co/A-Little-Bit-Of-This-Templates.html

Put them together with some carefree photos, and this is the layout I created:


Remember, all Pennysaver items are on sale for only $1 each through the end of the month, so don't delay if you want to grab any of them!

At the last minute I was also inspired to grab some new releases from over at The Digichick and spend an afternoon scrapping (instead of cleaning out a closet, which was my original plan).  Take a look at the latest fabulous templates from Akizo Designs called Crazy Squares #04:

And how about this cheerful kit from LDrag Designs called A Fresh Start!:

*Happy* is what I am with how this page came out:


These releases are on sale through Sunday evening!  All caught up again, so stay safe and warm, and come back and see me soon!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Hi all!  Happy Valentine's Day!  I hope you get to spend the day with someone you love!

After a busy week, I'm taking some time out to show you what scrapping I've done this week.  The Pennysaver event continues at The Digital Press, and Digital Scrapbook Ingredients has added these lovely and fun sets to her collection:

I grabbed an older template from DSI and this is the resulting layout:


As I mentioned before, each set in the Pennysaver category is on sale for only $1 each until the end of the month!  You can grab the ellies HERE, the papers HERE, and the Artsy Bits HERE!

Over on The Digichick side of town is this music-themed kit from Meagan's Creations called Ode To Music:

http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Ode-to-Music-by-Meagan-s-Creations.html

I can't resist a good music kit, so I grabbed it and some add-on paints and did this page of some images from several years ago.  The photos aren't the best but I like how it came out:


Well, that's it for now!  I'm going to stay curled up here next to my sunny window as the temperature outside dips down to below 0.  I hope you stay warm too, and come back and see me soon!

One Scrappy Chick

Hi all!  As promised, I'm back again right away to show you what fun I've had over at The Digichick this week.  Lori of LJS Designs, maker of really fun scrapping kits, also can come up with a mean template.  She has a series of templates out that take their inspiration from quilt patterns, and I snapped up this one, called One Scrappy Chick-Single 4:

I grabbed some photos from Christmas and the latest collab from the Digichick Design Team that I showed you HERE, and am really pleased with how this layout came out:


Flying Geese for the win!  You can grab the template on sale HERE through the weekend, and don't forget that the collab is on sale HERE for the rest of the month!  Have fun, stay warm, and come back and see me soon!

Pennysaver Fun!

Hi all!  As I sit here with sore arms and an actual blister on one hand from shoveling snow for 4 days straight, I thought I'd cheer myself up by showing you what sort of scrappy fun I was up to while I wasn't battling the elements.

The Digital Press, where Willemijne of Digital Scrapbook Ingredients and Laura of Wishing Well Creations have their shops, has a month-long sale event going on in February called Pennysaver.  Any products released during February in this category will be available for the entire month for $1 each!  Here's what these ladies started off with:

From Digital Scrapbook Ingredients are coordinating paper and element packs called My Number One:

http://shop.thedigitalpress.co/My-Number-One-Elements.html

http://shop.thedigitalpress.co/My-Number-One-Papers.html

I adore the combination of pinks and greens, but found myself grabbing that dark brown paper and creating this layout:


Over on the Wishing Well side of the shop is this really pretty set called Project Twenty Fifteen-February:

http://shop.thedigitalpress.co/Project-Twenty-Fifteen-February-Kit.html

Since the theme seemed to lean towards capturing sweet moments, I found these photos from a few years back that I thought fit the bill:


Now, note:  the link and image above take you to the papers and elements conveniently together for $2, but if you want only one or the other, they can be had separately HERE for $1 each all month long!

I have to head off to work now, but I'll have a new release from The Digichick to show you tomorrow, and there will be more Pennysaver goodies coming along all month long....so make sure you come back and see me soon!

Fun in February!

Hi all!  Happy February!  Mother Nature is ushering the new month in with a winter storm here in the Midwest.  With 8 - 12 inches of snow expected today, I'm going to hunker down with my laptop and do some scrapping.  If you want to do the same, why don't you join me HERE at The Digichick for the challenge I am hosting this month, the Give Me Space Challenge:

Here's a closer look at the layout I made:


...and here is the look at the supplies I used to make it:  a bright, colorful collab called Where The Heart Is: 

http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Where-the-Heart-Is-team-collab.html

This is the latest quarterly collab from The Digichick Design Team, and is on sale for the entire month of February!  If I were you, I'd check it out!  Do that, and then come back and see me soon!

Honeymoon

Hi all!  It's new release day at The Digichick, and with the month of January drawing to a close, it's time to turn our attention to the month of February.  Which of course, means all sorts of romantic things with a nod to Valentine's Day.  Meagan's Creations has teamed up with Just Because Studio to create this lovely number called Honeymoon:


I thought the kit went well with these photos from a while back:


The collection is on sale HERE through the weekend, so check it out, then come back and see me soon!  I'll have lots of new things to show you over the next few days!
