Girly Girl Party freebie

I'm considering trying out for the Designer Darling Competition at Stuff to Scrap. I know I've been designing for quite some time now, but I don't think I have what it takes to be a "real" designer. What do you think?

Here is the new kit I've been working on for the December Color Challenge at STS. The colors are so soft. I hope you like it. I may make an alpha to go with this kit if time permits before the holiday.
If I don't "see" you before than, Have a Wonderful Holiday!

Safe and Sound Blog Train and IDNSD

I know its hard to raise little ones. I did it twice. I was always afraid of work sites, balloons and water, to name a few. When I saw the theme for this months' blog train at Stuff to Scrap, I knew I had to participate. The theme is Safe and Sound. The colors are bright and bold. Hop on the train and get all the fantastic stuff at each stop along the way.

Before we get to the goodies, I wanted to let you know about International Digital Scrapbook Day. Stuff to Scrap has a bunch of fun stuff happening the weekend of November 5 - 6. Check out the flyer.

Now on to the good stuff.

Sept Color Challenge

This month I've decided to do the Color Challenge at STS. The colors were pale, earthy and beautiful. When I started working on this kit, I was calling it "Wounded." Other designers posted their contribution before me and had the same theme. The designer juices got side tracked because I lost the pictures (due to a computer virus last year) of my daughters cast when she dislocated her elbow. Anyway, I kept those pieces and went flowery. So here is my mixed contribution.

Among the Stars QP

I was given the opportunity to work with a fantastic kit. The name of it is "Among the Stars" and the designer is Mom2Moo Designs. The kit uses bright, bold colors and has lots of stars. I can't get over the cute little astronaut that is included.

Mom2Moo Designs has her products in two stores: Digital Scrap Ink and Scraps with a Mouse

I made two pages using this kit, one of which I made into a freebie for my readers.

Here is the previews of the kit:
Here are the layouts I made using Among the Stars.

That's the one I made into a QP for you. Download link is below.

Here is the other layout.

Now, my mateys, don't forget to come back on September 1st for a fantastic blog train. (Did you get my hint?)

Color Challenge Freebie

STS has a fantastic color palette for this months Color Challenge that I couldn't resist making something for it. I've made a very generic mini kit. Some of the other kits are really cool. Head over to STS and take a look and grab some of the matching kits.

First I'd like to show you some of my recent layouts made with STS products.

Kit used is Boys and Girls of Summer by The Scrappy Kat and Shel Belle Designs.

Now what you've been waiting for.

July Blog Train... Greetings From...

This month Stuff to Scrap's blog train is Greetings From... We've got a big variety of interpretations on this theme. The best part is they are all color coordinated. And as always, you can mix and match. Being the members of STS are from all around the world, I decided to do Greetings From America using red, white and blue and a tiny touch of orange.
I hope everyone likes this as much as you liked my last two contributions to the STS blog trains.
We're voting on the color combos for the August blog train and the colors are all wonderful.

Download Taken Down.....  sorry but this product does not meet my designer standards so I removed it.  Sorry for any inconvenience.

And follow the rest of the blog train here...

Second Time Around

I'm reposting this freebie for two reasons.
1- Liz Odle asked if I could compress the file with "zip" instead of "rar." I did some research and it was really easy. Liz let me know if this works for you!
2- As of this writing I have 498 downloads, I new record for me. I'm hoping that just two more people download so I can get an ego boost, which always comes in handy.

I'm considering making a matching alpha with that flower paper seen here too! Stay tuned.

A mini mini freebie

Well this month came and gone and I forgot all about finishing this kit from Scrapkit Challenge. I've been doing kits for that Challenge for over a year now. Unfortunately the participation there is shrinking. The April colors are red, black and white and is called Formal. Unfortunately, those colors and theme aren't appealing to me. Maybe I'll add yellow and do a "Disney-ish" kit... but I'll see.
I am working on the color pallet at Stuff to Scrap. I think this will be flowery and pretty.
It's the ideas and color pallets I have a hard time coming up with. Maybe I'll look into doing collabs with friends... anyone interested. LOL.
Anyway, here is the mini-mini.

download disabled.....  This freebie does not meet up to my designing standards so I removed the link.

I'm back! and a Freebie

I don't know how many of my readers know about Nathalie MacKay of Kitten Scraps. She's creating two kits simultaneously giving out papers or elements almost daily (I don't know how she does it with her full house). One kit is called Mischief and has bold colors of red, blue, yellow and green. The other kit is called Princess and has soft colors of pink, blue, green and yellow.

Nathalie put up a challenge for her readers to either make quick pages or add-ons to her kits and I took that challenge. I choose the Princess kit to work with. I absolutely love those soft colors.

If you'd like to see her kits go to her blog here.

Stay tuned for "Artic Blast" this months kit the members of Scrapkit Challenge are working on.

Small Freebie

Sorry for not blogging in soooo long. I've been extremely busy. Last month it was the holidays and cleaning up from after our vacation. Now it seems like we do school, HW, therapy for DS, dinner and workout. (DH and I started a weight loss program for the New Year. We need it for our health.) Weekends are for shopping and running errands.
Anyway here is what I started for the ScrapKit Challenge. Never got around to finishing it.
This months theme is Artic Blast. The colors are very pleasing! Stay tuned for that!

Anyway, here is the freebie!
