Here is a layout I did up using Jack Frost.  You can find this kit here at Scrapbird.  It's a steal of a deal right now at 30% off too!

Of course you know I have a couple of freebies for you too!  A border and a journal tag are available for you to download just click below each picture.

Well, that's all for now.  Hope you enjoy your freebies today and that they help you to get a bit of scrapbooking done in between all the holiday festivities!

Happy Scrappin!

Thanksgiving Feast Freebies!

Hello Fellow Scrappers!
Hope you have all had a great weekend!  I managed to do a bit of cleaning around the house and sorted through a ton of old Halloween costumes now that we are moving onto another holiday season.  Christmas is only about 6 weeks away but before Christmas comes my friends in the states celebrate their Thanksgiving.  Just in time comes a kit from Crescent Moon Designs called Thanksgiving Feast.

As always I played around and created a layout to inspire you...(don't you just love pumpkin pie?)

This is such a cute and versatile kit, I know you will want it in your collection.  You can grab it at Scraps N Pieces here  or over at Scrapbird and I have a couple of little freebies for you that  you can pick up as well.  Just click the links below the images to download.

Well, that is all from me for now.  I am off to do a bit more cleaning and sorting (after I scrap a page or two that is!)
Happy Scrappin!

I Have A Crush...A GLITTER CRUSH!!! Glitter Crush Alpha Freebie!

Hey Everyone!
The week is almost over and I feel like celebrating, so I am giving you a freebie to play with this weekend!  I have been playing around with alpha's the last few weeks and created this...
(Quality Checked - Upper Case Letters are approx. 2" tall at 300dpi)

The colors reminded me of Orange Crush and Cream Soda with a bit of sparkle throughout, and so Glitter Crush Alpha was born!  You can pick it up for FREE here from my dropbox.  It will probably be available for about a week and then you will find it for sale at CatDesignz.  
Hope you enjoy, have a fantastic weekend!

Time for Scrapbooking and Friends

Good Morning!
After a long day at work yesterday I got home and decided to relax my tired feet!  I sat on the couch with my laptop and put together a layout from a picture that I took last summer.  I love this photo so much!  It wasn't spontaneous (I asked the girls to go sit at the end of the dock), but it does convey the relationship the girls have with each other.  They have known each other since my daughter was a baby and even though there is an age difference they have always gotten along.  Their friendship will stand the test of time.

I used this layout to participate in a challenge at Scraps n Pieces.  Each month they put up a list of different challenges.  This one used kits from their Bits n Pieces line for June.  

The kits are from Karen Diamond Designs (BFF Elements, BFF Extra Papers, BFF Grafitti) and Scrappiness Designs (Best Friends Forever Papers).  The staple is from Wendy Tunison (35mm).

I hope this layout has inspired you to scrap one of your favorite moments of friendship.  Until next time...

Happy Scrappin!

A Little Story of Memory Preservation

Good Morning Everyone!
It's shaping up to be a lovely day in my area!  I hope there is some beautiful weather on the way for you too!
I just wanted to share with you a wonderful little podcast that I listened to a couple of days ago.  I found it on Layout A Day with Lain Ehmann. She interviewed a lady by the name of Darien Gee who told her inspiring story of how she left everything behind, moved to Hawaii, and held onto the things in life she cared about most, forgetting about personal "things" to live the way she and her husband really wanted to live. She talks about how WE ARE ALL memory keepers in some fashion or another even if you don't consider yourself a scrapbooker! (Blasphemy! Just kidding, lol!) Have a listen (I found it to be lovely to listen to in the background as I was working on some pages) and then take a look at her wonderful paper scrapbooking photos below the podcast. Enjoy! (Podcast Ep78, June 5, 2013)

Spring Is In The Air & Summer Is On The Way!

Hi Everyone!
Hope you have all been well.  Things have been a bit crazy for me so a bit less time for scrapbooking & designing :(  , but I found some time last week to do a couple of layouts featuring a few kits from CatDesignz.

This layout features items from the kit English Garden and the wordart is from Spring
I used photoshop basic shapes and clipped papers to them for a little something extra.

I played a bit and mixed up some kits with this one.  Wordart is Inspirational Wordart Set3, Totally Tropical, Summer Smiles, Summer Notes, English Garden, and Spring.

Summer SmilesSummer NotesEnglish Garden, and Spring are all .99 cents right now at Catherine's My Memories store.  Get it while it lasts!

Well that's all for now.  Hope you are all enjoying a beautiful spring and getting lots of scrapbooking done!

Eggcellent Easter - A New Digital Scrapbooking Kit

Hello Scrapbooking Friends!
I hope your Easter celebrations were wonderful last weekend.  We had a very quiet Easter with just our immediate family and a very simple dinner.  My daughter who is past the Easter Bunny stage, still requested an egg hunt so I watched her wander around collecting all of her treats that had been hidden for her.  I am happy that she still has some child-like wonder left in her about things like that.
Speaking of Easter, I wanted to show you the brand new Easter kit that I created.  It is called Eggcellent Easter and it's bright, happy colors are the perfect backdrop for all your Easter photos and all of your pictures!  Just take a look what my friend Linda has done with her layouts.

Aren't they beautiful?  Eggcellent Easter has 11 Background papers and 22 Embellishments all created at 300dpi so are suitable for printing purposes.  Hop on over to my store and take a peek! (It's Commercial Use friendly too!)

I have also created some matching Stacked Papers to go with the kit.

Well, I am off to sit back and do a little scrapbooking, so until next time...

Happy Scrappin!
