24 Days until Christmas!

WOW! It's December! It's time to haul out the decorations and lights and put up the tree, not to mention shoveling the sidewalk, bundling tight and drinking hot chocolate (or coffee, in my case, lol)! Tonight my kids and I watched Miracle of 34th Street, which of course just fueled the Christmas fever! :)

I have a new release for you this week; it's very shopping-centric (perfect for this month, am I right??) Stuff to Scrap's Build-A-Kit for December is all guessed! Yay! And for those of you who don't already know, there's an awesome coupon you can use to buy 3 and get them 50% off!

So here's a little peek at the goodies in the build-a-kit:

And here are my contributions:

Stuff to Scrap is also hosting an awesome course for Daily December! I'm so excited about it because I'm actually going to scrap every day this month with the help of the templates (and the super awesome kit...all of which come with the course)! It's a perfect way to capture all of those holiday memories in spite of the busyness that seems to ensue this time of year. It's a must-have! :) Just click on the image below for more information!

And the awesome kit that you'll get when you sign up:

That's it from me for now! Head on over to STS and check out the BAKs and the Daily December event! :)
Until next time, stay warm, and happy scrapping!!

New Release- Free to Be...and a freebie mini!

Inspired by all things imperfect (aka life, lol), I created this kit with thoughts of every day, life, ups and downs and everything in between. It's a little shabby and a little bling, and a lot of fun! :)

I'm also hosting the October Challenges at Polka Dot Plum, and for everyone who completes at least one challenge, I created this participation prize!

Be sure to check the challenges--the Sugar Plums have created some great ones! And have a fantastic remainder of the week!

Until next time, happy scrapping!

The season of football, homecomings, and tailgating has arrived! One of my favorite things about fall is going to the football games and eating grilled goods from tailgate parties! So, in honor of this tradition, I created a kit capturing all of those things!

Morning Glory New Release

Waking up to the beautiful smell of fresh coffee is truly a morning glory! I was inspired to create this kit first by my almost obsessive love of a really good cup of coffee.It's slightly shabby, soft, and encompasses the glory of coffee (both in the morning and all day long! ;) ) as well as the wonderful conversations and moments friends have over a good cup of coffee.

I will be sending out my newsletter this evening and there will be a special discount coupon inside of it for all of my subscribers to get 40% off this kit! So click that little button on the right to sign up to receive my newsletter! :-)

And here are some layouts from my wonderful CT ladies!

Chugging Along--August Blog Train Stops Here For a Fabulous Freebie!

Happy August! I love this month--it's such a wonderful time of transition when summer gracefully bows out to fall, new school-year magic is in the air, and around here, it's also full of fun things like the county fair. I think the palette chosen for this month's blog train encompasses all that is wonderful about this month simply with color. And with an open theme for this month, I chose to give homage to lady summer and bask in its warmth for these last few weeks before it gets cold...again.

Anyway, enough of my musings! You have probably arrived here from BZB Designs and your next stop will be the blog of the wonderfully talented Designs by Connie Prince . If you happen to get lost along the way, you can always head back to The Blog Train Blog for a full itinerary of the stops along this journey!

And finally, here's the mini I created just for you!

Enjoy, and happy, happy scrapping!

Oh, Baby! New Releases for 7/31!

Today I'm releasing two kits all about babies! I have a TON of baby photos to scrap still, and I really love having a variety of baby kits for all of the photos and milestones. I also love journaling about my babies' firsts, milestones, check-ups, etc, so I created little journaling strips to go along with the kits! And I went a little unconventional with the girl kits and used purple rather than pink...because quite often I find myself wanting something other than pink baby kits when I'm scrapping my daughter's baby photos. :-)

Anyway...enough of my babbling! :-) Check out these kits and the journal and word art packs. All available at my shops (images are linked). I also have a girls' bundle with the kit and additional packs, as well as a boys' bundle--a little savings if you want the whole shabang. :-)


And, one of my creative team girls, Brandi, has created a quick page freebie for you all! Please visit her blog and snag it! :)

Templates: Love 'Em or Hate 'Em?

Just recently I've found a love for templates. I haven't been digiscrapping all that long, especially compared to seasoned scrappers, but from the beginning I had an aversion to using templates. I'm not exactly sure why. It may have been because I felt like the resulting layout wasn't truly mine or that I was somehow stinting my creativity by using templates--maybe both. In spite of my feelings, I've used them a few times, whether for CT assignments or template challenges in forums, but just recently I bought a pack and used a couple of templates simply out of time constraints. Since I've started designing, I really haven't had much scrap time--something that I definitely need to find balance for because I still really love scrapping.

So just yesterday I was using these templates I'd purchased, and I discovered something wonderful. It's something that lots of people say--that templates are simply meant as a guide to help you construct your layout, but that concept finally sank in for me as I started with the template and slowly worked it into my own layout. The foundation was there, but with my added touches, it truly became my layout. I've also realized that having really amazing templates (used templates from  the very talented Sara aka Zinnias and Swallowtails and Marie H Designs) did wonders for my attitude toward them! I was so pleasantly surprised.

Any template lovers out there? Who are your favorite template designers? Any template haters? On the fence? Tell me what you think! :-)
